Family sue over co-pilot's death

THE girlfriend and parents of a co-pilot killed in a plane crash in Cork a year ago are suing two companies involved in running the flight.

Andrew Cantle (27), from Sunderland, had just started his first airline job when he died in the crash in thick fog at Cork Airport. He had flown the Manx2.com flight from Belfast.

The lawsuit, by London firm Irwin Mitchell and Dublin firm Murray Flynn Maguire, is against FlightlineBCN, which was granted the Air Operator Certificate to run the service, and Airlada, which leased the plane and crew.



Redundancy terms at AIB

AIB has told staff it expects to announce redundancy terms for more than 2,000 staff within the next month.

David Duffy, the chief executive of the bank, said in an email to staff that the bank was close to reaching an agreement on the package.

"I hope to have the final issues resolved soon and expect to be able to communicate with you all in detail within the next month," said Mr Duffy.

AIB announced plans to make more than 2,000 staff redundant in April 2011 but has been unable to accept voluntary redundancies from staff due to the absence of an agreement on the terms with the department.
