@AndythePandy So many people at home were worried about what becoming part of IAG would mean for @AerLingus and today they have 17 transatlantic departures! Surely the busiest long haul day in their history with the addition of Seattle?.

@jjfcarr Delighted to advise @jetairways starting Manchester-Mumbai this winter. A boost to our connectivity, having already announced a new Ethiopian Airlines service this week. 2 new long haul services announced in 1 week is a demonstration of the momentum we are currently experiencing!.

@LuxuryTravelled Interesting EZY takeaways – new ‘Business Class’ bundle, tweaking of schedule for business, converting leisure travellers to book holidays, new loyalty programme ‘a work in progress’.

@R_Wall Flybe to take last 4 @embraer E175s with winglets and retain remaining @Bombardier Q400s — with no aircraft orders planned in “foreseeable future.”

@TravelJacobson “Typically a business class seat is going to bring in revenues of somewhere around a million dollars per year.”
