Aer Lingus have instructed their crew to stop using the Irish Language during in-flight announcements on the new Belfast-London Heathrow route.

The airline's decision has been criticised by the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, and Leader of the Opposition, Enda Kenny.

This petition is a message to the decision makers at Aer Lingus, including CEO Dermot Mannion, Finance Director Greg O'Sullivan, and Chairman John Sharman, that this decision is not acceptable to us, their customers.
We, the undersigned, call on the management of Aer Lingus to reinstate the use of Irish language for in-flight announcements, on the Belfast-London Heathrow route.

Tá muidne, na ndaoine atá tar éis an achanní seo a shiniú, ag glaoch ar bord bhainaistiochhta Aer Lingus chun fógraí Ghaeilge a chur ar ais i seirbhís aer Béal Feirste go Londain.

What's the company's reason behind this decision? A 'business one' or a 'political one' (I once read that bilingual signage was removed from Queen's University Belfast as some found the presence of Irish offensive!)
