The Irish Times states that Aer Lingus, as part of it's restructuring will dump it's Airbus widebody fleet in favor of Boeing. It has reportedly signed an MOU with ILFC to lease 14 B777-200's in an effort to focus on growing it's profitable North American market.

Anyone have any info on working for IE?
Are you required to have an EU passport, or be an Irish citizen?
What about license requirements?

Just a word of wisdom.
Received from APA,
Attention New York Pilot Furloughees,


This is an advisory notice to inform you of a pilot interviewing/hiring process currently underway by Brookfield Aviation AV. The jobs, 737-800 pilot positions, will be used to scab Aer Lingus pilot positions, (a fellow Oneworld Cockpit Crew Coalition member) during a strike/employer lockout. If you accept one of these positions and fly struck work, you will for all time be labeled a scab.

We ask our furloughees to take heed. A professional aviation career can be significantly impacted by flying struck work. If you have questions regarding these issues, feel free to contact xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

LAter,

LAter,
I've heard a career can be impacted by flying as a scab, but can you give an example. Seems like idle threats from Unions that have no teeth to make it stick. I wouldn't want to take the chance, but I haven't met anyone who suffered long term employment effects.

Screw the list. How's about just doing the right thing and staying away from struck, or alter ego work.
