Default Aer Lingus Pilots Threaten Disruptions

From Associated Press:

Irish airline Aer Lingus warned Tuesday its services could be grounded indefinitely if pilots carry out a threat next week to disrupt their work schedules.

Aer Lingus members of the Irish Air Line Pilots Association told the airline that pilots will report for duty one hour late and refuse to reschedule work days starting June 7. About 87 percent of pilots voted to take the action over company efforts to make them accept longer working hours and more flexible shifts.

"This withdrawal of flexibility will destroy our ability to operate a proper schedule as we will miss our airport slot times, parking stands, gate positions and will be unable to fulfill flight connections for customers," said Christoph Mueller, chief executive of Aer Lingus.

I heard that they were going to merge with Connie Kaletta and call themselves Connie Lingus. Any truth to that rumor?
