  1. Apparently all the corporate executives in the world flunked Economics 101. When people are not using your product, you don’t raise the price. Hello?

  2. I could almost (but not really) understand when airlines started imposing extra fees when the cost of gas in the US was $4, but that was last year. Have any of them rescinded those fees? I suspect not. The folks that pickup my trash still put a “fuel surcharge” on the bill…note to self: complain to them about that!

    I’ve never needed to check more than one bag on a trip to Ireland, but heck I know plenty of folks who would have to make the choice of buying extra stuff (and supporting the Irish economy) or avoiding a checked bag fee.

    Exactly what special treatment will those extra bags get that is worth $50?

  3. Aer Lingus have a very poor standard of customer service.

    They owe me 500 Euros from April to do with Volcanic Disruption and six months later nothing.

    They will not even contact me.

    I doubt I would use Aer Lingus again
