Via Irish Flight News
, comes a Sunday Business Post scoop
"Aer Lingus sought instant payment for mercy flight
Aer Lingus demanded money up front from the Department of Foreign Affairs to fly more than 80 Irish people home last week, following their evacuation from Lebanon.
Department officials, who spent most of last weekend organising the Irish government’s first ‘mercy mission’, were taken aback by the demand, according to a well-placed source."
Looking good for cottoning-on to the bigger priorities there, boys and girls. Well done
