Tweets of the day:

@JohnLStrickland #IAG @British_Airways @AerLingus rising to LH LCC challenge ..densification of 777’s @Gatwick_Airport + new routes competing @Fly_Norwegian.

@JohnLStrickland BA CEO Willie Walsh : new @Gatwick_Airport routes side by side with @Fly_Norwegian they’ve demonstrated market opportunity & consumer desire.

@McWhirterAlex Sad news for this route which is Belfast’s only regular long-haul route.  Plenty of long-haul routes ex-Dublin but not Belfast.

@R_Wall  Aer Lingus CEO says carrier has RFP out for Airbus A321LR with an eye on transatlantic hops. 

@R_Wall IAG CEO Willie Walsh says Airbus more accommodating on A350 plane deferral talks than Boeing on 787 Dreamliner.

@R_Wall  British Airways parent IAG considers delay of Boeing 787, AIrbus A350s deliveries from 2020.
