@BillyKelleherTD So Pat Rabbitte wants to sell Aer Lingus.always believed he was a Fine Gael TD who just happens to be in labour. This confirms my suspicion.
@CorkChamber Longer Timeframe and Greater Detail Needed On IAG’s proposal for Aer Lingus says Conor Healy in press release issued this evening.
@fiannafailparty Govt must firmly rule out sale of Aer Lingus now that Transport Minister has recognised its strategic importance.
@MrStevePatten Is it just me that thinks Irish Government should sell Aer Lingus to Michael O’Leary ??? @ryanair #aerlingus @ireland.
@PEdmondAero Outgoing @aerlingus CEO: “Standalone strategy v successful & could continue for couple more years, but v high risk”.
@Ragin_Spice I am EMBARR at how backwards our government is. The IAG bid is an excellent opportunity for Aer Lingus.
@Ragin_Spice Transport minister asking for guarantees for growth at ORK and SNN before agreeing to IAG bid? He does realise EI is not a charity?.
