News in brief:
The dead are unhappy that IAG bought Aer Lingus
There were many objections when IAG, the parent of British Airways, acquired Aer Lingus last year but one group who failed to speak up were the dead.
This was unfortunate, because they now reportedly find themselves in difficulty. As you can imagine, there are many thousands of Irish citizens in the UK who want to be buried or cremated in Ireland. The previous co-operative approach taken by Aer Lingus towards the UK Irish community has apparently changed for the worse under IAG ownership.
Airportr teams up with Gatwick Express
I have written about Airportr, the luggage courier service operating at Gatwick, Heathrow and City, before – I covered them in detail here.
The company has now teamed up with Gatwick Express to offer train customers a discount of £5 each way if they choose to let Airportr take the strain of getting their luggage from their home or office to the terminal, or vice versa.
You can find out more on the Gatwick Express website here.
I hope to be running a competition with Airportr in the next few days to give two readers a chance to try out their service for free.
