Aer Lingus Cancels 80 More Flights Scheduled for Later this Week

Aer Lingus is to cancel another 80 flights, later this week and across next weekend, as the fallout from the ongoing pilot pay dispute at the airline continues ahead of a new Labour Court resolution recommendation.

The fresh cancellations – from July 11 to July 14 (Thursday to Sunday) – follow on from 76 cancelled flights announced midway through last week. Aer Lingus has cancelled nearly 550 flights since Irish Airline Pilots Association (IALPA) trade union-affiliated pilots, at the airline, started industrial action last month over pay conditions.

A Labour Court recommendation on the dispute is due imminently, following a meeting of all sides last Wednesday.
