Aer Lingus at most critical juncture in its history: Board Member; pilots' ultimatum on outsourcing

Aer Lingus Board Member, Leslie Buckley, stated the carrier is at the most critical juncture in its history and it is imperative that the carrier’s planned cost cutting measures be achieved (irishexaminer, 21-Nov-2009). Aer Lingus pilots, meanwhile, issued an ultimatum to the carrier’s management to halt all outsourcing, if an almost EUR100 million cost-cutting deal is to be achieved (Irish Independent, 20-Nov-2009).
