Tweets of the day:

@Airlineroute Ethiopian Airlines on 24DEC16’s Westbound Addis Ababa – Washington Dulles service to operate via Shannon, iso Dublin. Aircraft: 777-300ER.

@ghimlay .@JetBlue says it is assuming international flights will start at LGB in 2018.

@ghimlay .@JetBlue still non-committal on A321LR, says it has a bit more to learn about the airplane.

@justinbachman Note: London is the largest unserved @JetBlue market in BOS only since they’ve added BOS-ATL. (Yes, this invites more A321LR questions.)

@testrinity  “I’m unfit for politics because you have to care what people think about you and I don’t give a rat’s a**!” @OLearyRyanair.

@testrinity “When I opened up a shop on Christmas Day I didn’t double the prices, I want to put that rumour to bed… I tripled them” @OLearyRyanair.

@testrinity “If we’d got Aer Lingus we’d have done a great job but it’s time to move on!” @OLearyRyanair.
