The IMPACT trade union has said it is not convinced Aer Lingus is still in crisis, and has asked for more detail on the gloomy picture painted by the airline this morning.
The airline warned that the controversial 'Greenfield' cost-cutting plan which resulted in 650 redundancies and pay cuts may not be enough to preserve the company.
Aer Lingus blamed fuel costs, the economy and industrial action by cabin crew for an operating loss of €56m for the first three months of the year.
But spokesperon Bernard Harbour says staff have already played their part:
"Staff have demonstrated that they will do what's necessary in order to keep the airline viable and profitable," he said, "but the statement issued by the company today doesn’t reciprocate that…It gives no detail of the kind of problems that it said it's facing."
