Tweets of the day:

@A350Blog Airbus has been considering a further #A350 stretch for 2 years.  The rationale: to offer a version similar in size to the 777-9X (400 pax).

@A350_Production .@Finnair plans to introduce a new configuration on its A350 aircraft. MSN104 will be the first one featuring: 32 B / 42 PE / Y 262 = 336.

@CorkAirport  FACT: @CorkAirport surpassed 2m passengers on 11 Nov 2016.  Last year it was Dec 15. Tangible sign of 8% growth this year. #FlyFriendly.

@PEdmondAero  .@cityjet seeks crew for a @BrusselsAirport base. Maybe a @FlyingBrussels SN wet-lease contract? h/t @starflyergold.

@RichardRoutes  Iberia Express to return #Madrid – @CorkAirport schedule in summer 2017 with an extended programme launching two weeks earlier from 03JUN17. 

@VincentLamigeon  #Airbus A350-1000 first flight could occur on November 22nd (source). Biggest version of the new Airbus twin-aisle.

@winglets747 The Great Australian Bakeoff continues as Perth, Brisbane and MEL airports vie to be the first Qantas 787-9 market.
