I know it’s not related to architecture, but I’m surprised there is no mention of the terrible decision to halt Aer Lingus flights from Shannon to Heathrow.
Does anyone have an opinion?
As a Corkman I would like to offer my support to the people of the mid-west region. Commercially you cannot blame Aer Lingus for wanting to target an area of greater critical mass so as to maximize profits. Although I’m not sure if they have calculated (‘sliced and diced’ to use their own language) the cost of goodwill and brand loyalty from the Irish people.
Without wanting to get political, the government’s decision to float Aer Lingus was short-sighted in the extreme and the Provincial Ireland will suffer as a result. It is only a matter of time now before they begin to move some of the long haul routes to Belfast.
