Tweets of the day:

@Kenny_Jacobs Ryanair vs Aer Lingus ads on social are like an episode of East Enders vs Glenroe.

@Lebeaucarnews Interesting.  President-elect raises the public pressure on $LMT to cut costs on the F-35 or risk losing the deal.

@McWhirterAlex Low-cost competition intensifies at Munich in 2017. Transavia adds 3 new destinations but Eurowings takes the bisciuit with 30+ [NL].

@PEdmondAero IAG to start new #Barcelona-based long-haul low cost carrier in 2017 with 2 A330s, evaluating N & S Atlantic routes.

@sn26567 .@Alitalia ’s board of directors approved the second phase of the airline’s business plan. Next two months critical.

@realDonaldTrump Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!.
