Aer Lingus fire sale won't benefit workers or the flying public

Aer Lingus is an iconic company.

It's one that a lot of Irish people have enormous fondness for, probably because it has been around nearly as long as the State has. It was an early symbol of a kind of hopeful modernity; a symbol of Ireland as an independent country, an island state that nonetheless was closely tied to the world beyond.

Aer Lingus matters to Irish people, and I'd hazard a guess that there is nobody but nobody in this country, outside of Fine Gael, who is happy to see it sold off to IAG.
