Reply To: Aer Lingus rejects / now accepts IAG takeover offerBack to Forum
DAA’s T2 also houses the US Customs Pre-Clearance facility, used by several Transatlantic airlines.
However, Aer Lingus derive a lot business from transatlantic passengers originating in UK and Europe. No doubt IAG would like to get their hands on this.
No doubt the Aer Lingus brand carries some value too. The advertising “great care, great fare” leans heavily on the staff, who are very customer focused:
I also remember an equally group of customer focused staff….they wore the uniform of BMI were excellent ambassadors for their employer……..until they were taken over by LH.
BMI is now history……..I hope that if the IAG takeover is successful, that Aer Lingus does not suffer the same fate.
