Tweets of the day:

@emiliotgonzalez  @iflymia is honored to have @AerLingus, national airline of Ireland, begin service to MIA Sept 17. Flying A330 (1/2). 

@fionndavenport We finally have a direct flight to #Miami as @AerLingus announce new route for 2017. Plus new flights to Porto and Split, but….MIAMI!.

@iflymia @DublinAirport @AerLingus We’re charmed! Thanks for the welcome!.

@Mark_J_Henry .@AerLingus CEO Stephen Kavanagh says that the airline is most profitable in the IAG group & will offer 8 million seats in 2017 for 1st time.

@Mark_J_Henry  Being owned by IAG has given @AerLingus access to 4 x A330 and 1 x 757 aircraft to expand its transatlantic service: Stephen Kavanagh CEO.

@Mark_J_Henry  #AerLingus will operate 15 transatlantic round trip flights every day next summer with new Miami-Dublin service to start in September.

@Mark_J_Henry More flights from @HeathrowAirport & continental Europe to @CorkAirport will be announced by @AerLingus at later date, Stephen Kavanagh says.

@noxegon @AerLingus Dublin to Porto is not a new route – it’s an existing route operated by the fine people at @Ryanair. Great to see competition :),

@PlaneBusiness #UAL CFO Levy prefers to buy rather than lease aircraft. Gerry Laderman agrees. For new core aircraft, “leasing doesn’t make sense.

@WandrMe But $UAL just killed its order for more planes in the 120 seat range so it cannot compete on that front. Strange days. #PaxEx.
