Tweets of the day:

@ABTAMembers  IAG’s Willie Walsh calling for scrapping #APD it would immediately benefit people, travel, economy @fairtaxonflying #travelmatters.

@DanielPearce Willie Walsh at #travelmatters: IAG is five years old, we’re ahead of our targets and acquired three more airlines.

@DanielPearce Walsh: we struggle to see the benefits of expansion at Gatwick, the costs of a third runway at Heathrow have been inflated #travelmatters.

@DanielPearce Willie Walsh: you cannot trust Heathrow management to deliver anything in a cost effective and timely manner #travelmatters.

@DanielPearce Walsh: airport charges are too high for domestic flights at Heathrow, Little Red and BMI couldn’t make a profit #travelmatters.

@DanielPearce  Walsh: if there is expensive, inefficient expansion at Heathrow or Gatwick, IAG will expand at other airports #travelmatters.

@DanielPearce  Walsh: time to scrap the futile Air Passenger Duty, it has no economic credibility #travelmatters.

@DanielPearce Walsh: cost of the actual runway is just 1% of the proposed costs of expanding Heathrow. How absurd. #travelmatters.

@sabinadegaston Willie Walsh on #airport expansion: “Doing nothing is better than doing the wrong thing”.

@winglets747  Dublin airport: trend has been about disaggregation. LCC connectivity with longhaul is about finding opportunities and aggregating.
