Tweets of the day:

‏@ghimlay Two other US carriers had initially expressed interest in @VirginAmerica but did not submit offers, regulatory filings show.

@ghimlay .@AlaskaAir had beaten @JetBlue to @VirginAmerica after multiple counteroffers. Alaska’s final offer: $57/share, while JetBlue offered $55.

@ghimlay .@SouthwestAir’s 737 Classic fleet will leave no later than Q3 2017, says CFO Tammy Romo.

@ghimlay @SouthwestAir says expects Q3’17 delivery of first 737 Max, but heard “rumours” could be earlier. Plans Max revenue service after Labor Day.

@ghimlay  Asked why @SouthwestAir is seeing strength at Houston while @United isn’t, @gary_kelly says: “We don’t really compare ourselves with United”.

@grahamck63 Just had a great email with more good news #flybfs #teambia #moregrowthmorejobs @BelfastAirport.
