Aer Lingus said that new guidelines would not include mandatory use for the first time. Women working on board the Irish airline’s fleet will soon be allowed to wear trousers, instead of the previously obligatory skirts.

Two Aer Lingus employees were among three men arrested by gardai last night in an investigation into international illegal immigrant smuggling network through Dublin Airport.
The employees are suspected of using catering vehicles to move illegal immigrants directly from planes that landed in Dublin Airport to a car-park outside the facility.
A senior source said that this meant that the illegal immigrants could avoid immigration and security checks at the airport.
Gardai believe that the scam has been ongoing for a number of years and more than 500 people have been smuggled into Ireland this way.”
