Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus cabin crew are to follow up a one-day pay deal strike tomorrow. The airline will operate only 15 out of around 160 scheduled flights on Wednesday.

In an escalation of the dispute, next Friday's strike is to be followed by a further two the next week unless a settlement on pay and conditions is reached, a spokesman for Impact said.

I flew EI on Friday and all was fine. However, there was limited service on Thursday as well.

My flight on Friday was about 1/4 full, and from talking to PAX quite a few people they knew had cancelled flights on EI as they were not sure if the work action was going to drag on. Always nice to get a full row (3 seats) on an A321.

EI IS SCHEDULED TO HAVE A STRIKE AGAIN ON FRIDAY THE 16TH BUT THEY ARE WORKING TO AVOID IT (SO THE PAPER SAID) SO YOU BETTER KEEP AN EYE ON THE NEWS IF YOU ARE FLYING THEN. Too make things worse, BD ground handlers have been on strike as well, so getting into Dublin can be tricky if EI goes back on strike.
