Should Aer Lingus give up its trademark Gaelic salutation?

Having already relocated its Shannon operation to Belfast, should Aer Lingus now further dilute its national heritage by dispensing with its standard greeting?

    Belfast is still located on the island of Ireland, some people from Belfast can also speak the Irish language, so it would be silly for Aer Lingus to change, after all, they are still Ireland's National Airline.

    Aer Lingus still also has its head office in Dublin too.

    No it shouldn't as Irish is still Ireland's national language - in fact, I'd rather the whole safety demonstration was given in Irish.

    The whole Belfast thing was a disgrace - if Aer Lingus want to move their secondary hub to a British city like Belfast, they should move their Dublin operation to Heathrow while they're at it.

    The Irish salutation should be retained irrespective of even if one or both the cities involved in the journey is in the UK.

    well aer lingus doesn't have an obligation to stay in shannon,whatever makes more profits,there's no obligation anymore as they're not state owned

    why should they get into negative profits just to maitain a non-profitable operation and routes just to stay in a ROI airport

    and last time i looked at the atlas belfast was on the island of ireland

    They should definitly keep it. Irish heritage goes further out the window each day, you would at least expect the national airline to hold on to it too. Maybe they'll replace the shamrock with a white flag next. Who knows.

    they should set up a third hub in CITY OF DERRY airport.

    im sure DERRY CITY COUNCIL would approve.

    and considering that deliberations in stormont can be made in Irish why not an Irish greeting for an Irish airline on the island of Ireland.

    No, Irish is still the official language of the Republic but I think it should give up this idea that it's the national airline - it's now a public company which can be owned by anybody

    I'm English but I say keep your Irish heritage, fly the flag whenever you can. Our English heritage is going out of the window, too many do gooders afraid of upsetting other cultures in our country.

    Why should it? Has Belfast left the island of Ireland?
