Strike action by Aer Lingus Pilots is due to go ahead on Thursday 30th May.
The strike action results from the refusal by pilots to implement the airline`s Survival Plan.
A company spokesman said “Aer Lingus is implementing the Survival Plan as the minimum required to return the airline to viability. All other parts of the company have accepted change. We are implementing the new work practices for pilots following an exhaustive six months process culminating in a ruling by an independent agreed arbitrator.”
“As we have already shown, the Survival Plan allows us to offer our customers cheaper air fares and a wider network of services”, he said
All flights operated by Aer Lingus on Thursday 30th May are cancelled with the following exceptions.
Flights which depart from the US on 29th May, due to arrive in Ireland 30th May: EI 104 New York/Dublin (arriving Thursday morning 04.20) // EI 112 New York/Shannon (arriving Thursday morning 05.00) // EI 144 Los Angeles/Dublin (arriving Thursday morning 08.35) // EI 132 Boston/Dublin (arriving Thursday morning 04.30) // EI 124 Chicago/Dublin (arriving Thursday morning 06.15) // EI 134 Boston/Shannon (arriving Thursday morning 04.00)
