[QUOTE=irishguy28;32260040]Can you explain what you mean?

/QUOTE]

Each flight that Aer Lingus is operating to PEK is charging the Irish Government 300k

You hardly thought they were doing it for nothing?

Given each flight is supposedly carrying about €28mn in supplies, that sounds like a great deal, even if 20% of what's brought back is unusable!

What has that got to do with anything?

Plenty of airlines carry expensive goods.

EI are not responsible for the condition of the cargo.

I don't see the need for that post to be honest unless you an axe to grind about the supplies as this is the 2nd time you have mentioned it.
