Aer Lingus cancels two transatlantic flights

Aer Lingus has confirmed that it was forced to cancel two transatlantic flights yesterday because of a shortage of aircraft. The airline cancelled its Shannon to New York service to use the 757-200 aircraft on its Dublin to Washington route.

The passengers affected were offered a refund or alternative flights.

An airline spokesman said: “Aer Lingus flights EI111, planned to travel from Shannon to New York, and EI110 planned to travel New York to Shannon on 10th October, have been cancelled due to aircraft unavailability.

The 258 Guests affected by this schedule disruption have been offered alternative flights or a full refund. We sincerely apologise to our guests for the inconvenience caused by this disruption, which is due to circumstances beyond Aer Lingus’ control,” the airline said.
