USD100M liabilities. That is a big sum for a small airline in the current economic climate.

Certainly a lot of money, but in airline terms True Blue this isn't big, considering it is less than the price of 2 new airbus 320s.
What matters is for they can finance their operation for the coming months until we can get through this awful period. The challenge is how investable the business is, and that hinges on securing the franchise for the next contract.

However, it is a lot of liability to any prospective buyer if there's the potential for the EI regional flying contract to go elsewhere in 2022.
Hopefully, they'll be able to secure an extension to protect the business in the longer term

It IS a lot of money..
Poor example...NO airline even pre-Covid hands over wads of cash to pay for A320`s up front & complete.

Its a lot of cash to the average Joe Bloggs but I think EIBUD was just trying to put it in perspective. So in this case I don't think it is a poor example - in my opinion.

Not too sure any perspective would reflect other than USD100M is a VERY large liability.

Aer Lingus Heathrow S21

Aer Lingus appear to be switching the morning departure from BHD to LHR to 7:40 am. The route will be 3x daily according to the EI website

This is certainly a much more useful time for those travelling to London from Belfast, but I hope it doesn't lead to IAG cancelling the (night stopping) early morning BA flight.

As long as it comes back. Mid December is actually not that far away in the grand scheme of things.
