Aer Lingus

We're supposed to go to Ireland next week and I just heard Aer Lingus is threatening a strike. It doesn't look like the airline is doing a lot in preparation, either. There's almost no mention of it at their web site, and nothing about what travelers might do. If anyone heard more than I did I would appreciate hearing from you.

Bruce, Check the Irish Times website for news on the Aer Lingus strike. I believe it is www.ireland.com
Sorry I don't know more other than it is scheduled now for Sept 16 or 17 but the newspaper should be up to date.

Pat is right. The cabin crew are set to strike on the 17th. The Irish Times (http://www.ireland.com) reported yesterday that up to 20,000 passengers will be affected byt his strike.

Call Aer Lingus' 800 number to see what contingency plans they're planning (if indeed they're planning any).

Good luck.

Hi folks,
Well the bad news at the moment is that Aer Lingus have cancelled all flights on Tuesday 18th Oct due to a planned 24 hr strike by their Cabin crew. They have promised to reschedule people onto flights on other days. The baggage handlers and catering staff went out for 2 hrs on both Sat and Sun - just to cause disruption more than bring the airline (and airport) to a standstill. However one result of the announced planned cancellation may be to bring both sides (and government Ministers) to the talking table. It is all an attempt to get a pay rise before the company moves from semi-state into an IPO. Keep an eye on www.ireland.com or the TV service at www.rte.ie or even aer lingus at their web site.
