Airport management ‘devastated’ following Ryanair decision to close base in Cork this winter; jobs to be affected (Sarah O’Dwyer, EchoLive)

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.

Singer Azealia Banks claimed she was banned from Aer Lingus flights following row with stewardess.

The 27-year-old called Irish women ‘ugly‘ and used foul-mouthed racial slurs during the bizarre tirade which she shared on her Instagram story.

The musician removed herself from a morning flight to Dublin, ahead of her sold-out gig at The Academy in the Irish capital on Tuesday.

She claimed she had been ‘banned’ from the airline after accusing a flight attendant of ‘lying’, saying she had been ‘treated like a wild animal’.
