these photos made me laugh; it sums up the state of Aer Lingus - haphazard and without a driving direction

Oh come on, fair go - like no other airline has ground accidents. It has more direction than most other European airlines; how come it profit margin is the second highest in Europe (second only to FR) and higher even than Easyjet. Sure it makes mistakes and no doubt this driver will get a clip around the ear, but these things happen. Lucky there was no aircraft involved!

I assume the driver left this incident unhurt!!!

This reminds me of a story that I believe occured a fews years ago in DUB when an EI groundcrew member 'dented' a airline bus/(or van) near the gate - it caused a row between management and the Union as the employee's boss's wanted him sacked on the grounds that he was not licensed to drive the particular vehicle - I think he kept his job as the Union went up in arms?

Someone may be able to confirm if this happened???

On another note - does this mean the van will be out of action for a few weeks for damage repair - what sort of delays can be expected on the ground  Smile.....


Aviation has a 100% record, we've never left one up there......
