Willie Walsh tried to shrug off the interventions of both Virgin Atlantic and US billionaire Donald Trump this week into the debate on the sale of Aer Lingus.

Neither knew what they were harping on about, the Irishman suggested, claiming he was more interested in the views of those in Ireland who understand the issues.

Whatever about Mr Trump, the views of Virgin Atlantic shouldn't be dismissed out of hand, certainly not by the Government.
