Aer Lingus Perfidas la Irlandalingvon

…de la BBC:

As Labour MP Kate Hoey flew into Belfast to take part in the Let's Talk programme she could have done some research on the plane.

Little did she know that the flying habits of one of the city's newest arrivals would be up for discussion later that day.

Aer Lingus, the latest airline to set up shop in Northern Ireland, has decided to drop the Irish language greeting to passengers on their Belfast flights.

The news hasn't phased the County Antrim born politician.

"I really couldn't care less," she told the audience. Later adding, "as long as they speak English".
