Aer LIngus is suspending publication of its in-flight magazine Cara

This morning.

Via Independent.ie:

…Cara didn’t have to print in high volume, but it was read by millions of passengers every year, and the production values reflected that. By the end of the month, copies were dog-eared, but hanging in there. And countless passengers will recall pulling fresh copies from seat-backs at the beginning of the month, inhaling that newly-minted whiff as they opened the pages…

Aer Lingus CEO Sean Doyle outlined the potentially dramatic moves in an internal video to staff members on Friday.

“We have no line of sight on any meaningful resumption of operations out of either Cork or Shannon Airports. As such we are reviewing the scale of our flying programme from these airports and the ongoing viability of our regional bases there,” he told staff.

Someone‘s looking for a bailout.

FIGHT!

The company confirmed to The Times that up until now all its female staff had to wear make-up as part of their uniform. 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.
