Tweets of the day:

@ghimlay .@JetBlue still having “awful struggle” with Mexico City slot timings. “We are the carrier of choice if you want to fly at 5am” – @martysg.

‏@ghimlay .@SpiritAirlines CEO says Cuba flights will be “exceptionally high cost” for carriers. Won’t be gamechanger in financial opportunity.

@jonostrower First 787 for the French flag carrier, home of rival Airbus, is outside and painted. Airplane #500.

@jonostrower Rockwell Collins buying B/E Aerospace moves it from the 25th to the 17th largest aerospace company in the world per @flightglobal rankings.

@Marlow601 I never thought I’d agree with Michael O’Leary of Ryanair but I think we should have a new runways at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted!.

@RobinTudor1 Great news for @LPL_Airport re Heathrow announcement @yourHeathrow L’pool City Regn needs flights to LHR for onward access to global markets.

@SkyIanKingLive CEO of BA-owner IAG, Willie Walsh, tells @IanKingSky #heathrowexpansion Very concerned about cost of Heathrow. Charges must be capped.

@SkyIanKingLive  Walsh: Heathrow will allow more competition but it also gives us more opportunities. Airport must incentivise airlines on new routes .

@SkyIanKingLive Walsh: Charges should go down. “You can build this without seeing any increase”.

@SkyIanKingLive Walsh: CAA has made it very clear that capping charges will be fundamental issue the airport must address.

@SpaethFlies Interesting @BBD_Aircraft built a full #composite test fuselage #CSeries then went with aluminum lithium giving advantage for this size a/c.

@URESG76 John McDonnell makes key point on London’s system of airports @Channel4News  as did Willie Walsh on who funds new runway – LHR really a mall.
