    According to the carrier’s COO Mike Rutter, Aer Lingus will launch a sort of short-haul business class called “Aer Space” in the months ahead.

    Designed to remain competitive with rival carriers on main short-haul routes, Aer Space will provide more space for high-fare paying passengers with more onboard amenties.

    The first couple of rows will be reserved for Aer Space with the middle seat of three being kept free.

    The Irish Independent carried the news today.

    “The first front couple of rows on aircraft serving those cities will have an empty middle seat to give higher paying passengers on either side more room”

    So they have made it to the 1990s now. Well done.

    That’s a genius move! Tight legroom, middle seat free, more amenities and a premium fare. Can’t wait to fly the revamped Aer Lingus, although does anyone else think that sounds like Club Europe…?

    Will there be a curtain??

    Watch out for the next IAG report when inter-availability of the fleet will be mentioned. Standard configuration across BA, Iberia and Aer Lingus. Happy days.
