Aer Lingus had an epic Twitter war with Norwegian Air over their low prices
Aer Lingus didn't hold back when they got into an epic Twitter war with Norwegian airlines over their low prices.
Following Norwegian Air's announcement on Thursday that they were launching new routes from Dublin, Cork and Shannon to the US with fares beginning at just €69, Aer Lingus were sure to get their say in on the matter.
Quoting a tweet from the Scandinavian airline, Aer Lingus quipped: "No free bag? No free seat assignment? No free meal? No preclearance? Cheers, you're grand."
One customer responded to Aer Lingus highlighting that it cuts out the three hour drive from Cork to Dublin, but the airline was having none of it.
"Maybe, but have you seen where you land?" they responded.
Norwegian Air took the opportunity as free advertising, saying: "Free advertising from Aer Lingus for Norwegian’s low-cost flights? That’s grand, thanks guys!" but Aer Lingus clapped back again.
Sharing a screenshot of Google Maps with the route from the destination airport of Stewart International to Times Square by train, to which the results were: "can't find a way there," Aer Lingus said: "About those routes..."
