MR LARK,

I assure that the Uk controllers would take similar action as the Irish controllers if new untested equipment was forced on them, which is was this dispute was about.

New equipment needs to be tested by the controllers thoroughly, to ensure mistakes are not made. Now if the controllers had not walked out last week, and you had not been inconvenienced, your poor thing, and your flght was involved in a serious airmiss or worse!!!!! Your thoughts on that scenario??

Now onto wages, as has been mentioned in this thread before, not everybody has the attributes required to control planes. Controllers are highly skilled specialists , who earn and deserve their money, and that includes a promised 6% payrise.

If you want to see PM me and I will arrange a visit.

Until then go away and take you delayed upset ego elsewhere.
