@AerLingus Application closes on Friday for an eCommerce Business Support Analyst role (Dublin). DM if you’re interested in learning more! #jobfairy.
@AerLingus Tuesday mid-afternoon is the most popular time of the week to book flights on http://aerlingus.com . Wait a minute… That’s… Now!.
@AlexInAir Very odd – #MalaysiaAirlines has banned check-in luggage on some flights to Europe inclu-Paris & Amsterdam due to ‘strong headwinds’ @MAB.
@julianoneill Ryanair will announce Thurs it’s going to @BelfastAirport doing Gatwick plus others. Interesting to see if new routes figure, esp Germany.
@marcelkoppes Unbelievable… next week off to Dublin and instead of paying EUR 400 with @AerLingus it is now only EUR 32 with @Ryanair.
@McWhirterAlex Aer Lingus will soon axe its Belfast-Gatwick service. But Ryanair is waiting in the wings …
@MrRossHallam According to http://A.net , the A319 doesn’t appear in Aer Lingus’ schedule APR ’16 onwards – likely going to IAG partner Vueling.
