IRISH PEOPLE ARE sharing stories of times Aer Lingus helped them out after a man’s Facebook post to the airline went viral.

Yesterday Jonathan Wallace shared a post on the airline’s Facebook timeline in which he commended Aer Lingus for assisting the families of the six students who were tragically killed in a balcony collapse in Berkeley on Tuesday.

Wallace thanked Aer Lingus for their “compassion, care, sympathy and utmost professionalism” in helping the families of the six students witht their travel arrangements.

The post has since been liked over 57,000 times and shared over 4,200 times.

Aer Lingus thanked Wallace for his words and stated that they would continue to assist the families in any way possible.


And the comments show that this isn’t the first time Aer Lingus has gone above and beyond to help Irish people, as several people have shared touching stories of times the airline helped them in their hour of need.
