EI is part of IAG and is enjoying the efficiencies of being part of that.

On its own it was struggling to survive and we did that to death on here. In addition there would be costs IAG pick up in relation to people that previously would have sat with EI if it was a stand alone operation.

I think IAG have been true to their word, Aer Lingus feels the same as before they were absorbed by IAG. A very decent airline, Irish through and through.

There is merit in saying that Aer Lingus with a fleet of only 50 is a small airline, because it is a small airline.

IAG is not an airline.....bet if they were still at BFS you wouldn’t be making such comment.

Neither like not dislike the new livery so far (Only seen photos). Initial impression is relief that it wasn't as bad as I feared really.

There is a difference between small and weak.

Nobody is disputing that Aer Lingus is a small airline but referring to it as weak is inaccurate. Even before the IAG take over Aer Lingus was financially and strategically strong, this is what made them attractive to IAG in the first place and was simply reinforced following the take over.

Some are acting as if IAG was some kind of saviour for Aer Lingus, the reality is that Aer Lingus turned itself around following the economic crash and set itself on a course for growth. A large portion of the transatlantic expansion we’ve seen in recent years came long before IAG were on the scene.

Wow! That new livery has to be one of the most underwhelming efforts I've ever seen.
They've changed from a strong stylish albeit dated scheme to what looks like a coat of white undercoat primer and a splash of blue/green on the tail with a crooked shamrock to boot. Dear oh dear.

The new look, developed with US design and brand strategy company Lippincott
These guys worked with Hawaiian and Delta, but given the Shamrock design they've come up with, I suggest they went popular American breakfast cereal for their inspiration.

Quick paint of the tail and lettering and its somewhere else. Corporate branding as part of IAG.

At least it will stop BA returning any more leased EI aircraft with a "Fly green side up" note taped to the control column.
