Crisis over. Dublin Airport is operating. Ireland’s reputation is redeemed. The chaos was a blip. It’s back to normality at the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) . No passengers will miss their flights in future. And the DAA bosses are very, very, very, very sorry.

Back to normality” at Dublin Airport is a return to the familiar, thoroughly unpleasant travel experience. Getting out of bed to catch a flight at 3am; a three-and-a-half-hour wait; expensive parking; blocked loos; rip-off restaurants; luggage delays and soaring blood pressure. It probably takes the average DAA victim 24 hours to regain their sanity.
