Tweets of the day:

@crankyflier .@travel_griz I just asked that question – Aer Lingus CEO is bullish on more US cities especially with new narrowbody aircraft #PHX2016.

@DublinAirport The most popular aircraft at @DublinAirport is the B737-800 with over 40% of flights operating that model #Aviation.

@ghimlay.@Delta has also deferred four A350-900s from 2018 to 2019/20, to keep pace with when international market will improve.

@ghimlay .@Delta says it expects Brazil unit revenue to turn positive this winter season. Very optimistic!.

@GlobeTrotScott  Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, notes that many European hubs are closer together than Doha and Dubai (ignores Dubai-Abu Dhabi) #PHX2016.

@winglets747 Secondhand A380 market: SIA’s first 5 with lease expiry aren’t indicative. Those 5 are early models w/ significant production inefficiencies.
