According to the following report on Airwise, EI are looking at axeing up to 1300 jobs.


Do you think EI will manage to streamline their operation by continuing to axe jobs??

Debate is what you put on de hook when you want to catch de fish.

Absolutely; although Aer Lingus has made great strides over the past three years, it is also well behind FR in revenue generated per employee.

That said, with ambitious expansion plans, I'm surprised that they intend to get rid of so many. Ultimately, a need will arise to take on more cabin crew and pilots. It is noticeable that flight crews are unaffected by the latest announcement. Presumably, the dispute regarding the 40 or so ex-146 pilots has now been solved.

There will be arguments, but ultimately, EI will get the numbers down to the level it wants. Still, 3,000 people in an airline that had around 6,000 employees (and less than half the number of routes) that's quite an achievement.

i think i read where about 40 pilots are to be let go too. sounds kinda strange to me to let go of so many staff if EI are to expand their network as reported. I think they should now start up a service to sout east asia and maybe on to australia. seems like a good time, strong demand and no domestic competition
