A two-day strike planned by Aer Lingus (www.aerlingus.com) pilots next week. It’s likely all of the airline’s flights in and out of the country will be affected and up to 30,000 passengers will be put out. So 200 flights are due to be cancelled and will cause havoc to those planning on travelling early next week.
The 480 pilots are staging the 48-hour strike on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week in protest at the pay and conditions being offered by the company at its new hub in Belfast. It hasn’t been a great week for Aer Lingus’s PR department after the news came last week that they were dropping the Shannon – Heathrow route which could effect thousands of Irish Jobs.
