My thoughts are with the good folks in Dublin who will lose their jobs. Always tough to see something like this happen. Hopefully the employees will be offered a good package or the option to relocate to another position
Sad news--there have been some great agents there!
One word...........Disgusting! A sign of our times!
This is very sad news; the Dublin people were among the best. It also raises the question of "where will those jobs go?" Oy, the thought...
Sad, especially since Dublin has been hit by hard times the last few years. I wonder what call center will be used instead, whether they'll be as good and experienced, and whether the agents will speak English as well. Perhaps fewer phone agents are needed as more passengers purchase and make changes on line.
Gutted! This is truly, truly sad news. The Dublin agents are absolutely amazing!
The bad news keeps piling on for Ireland Not a good place to live at the moment.
I was watching an RTE piece of public television this week that said unemployment there was over 14%. This in a country (Republic of Ireland) of only 4.4 million people. What's really said is Ireland's youth having to leave the country after university graduation to find work.
My second trip out of the US was to Ireland with my mom. For her 70th birthday we went and found the county her father emigrated from when coming to the us as a boy. He was a Callahan, formerly O'Callaghan I am told. It was an amazing mother daughter bonding experience. I recently returned to Ireland with a friend and it was still the most magical place in the world.
It's always sad to hear of layoffs. Especially during this period of economic decline in the developed world.
Who will price RTW fares? They were all done in Dublin, weren't they?
