Norwegian announced earlier this week that it was withdrawing its transatlantic service from Dublin.
The airline will continue to serve various European routes out of Dublin, but its transatlantic service will cease operations September 15th.
The airline stated that it no longer considered the routes to be commercially viable:
As the airline moves from growth to profitability, we have conducted a comprehensive review of our transatlantic operations between Ireland and North America and considering the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, we have concluded that these routes are no longer commercially viable.
Of course we live in a social media age, so Aer Lingus took a potshot at Norwegians statement:
Norwegian is offering refunds to affected passengers. Aer Lingus has also announced some price cuts on their US routes, though whether they are as aggressively priced as Norwegian was offering is hard to say.
