A SHORT TWO weeks ago, the nation was basking in the reflected glow of the rugby team finally beating New Zealand after a 111-year wait.
They go at it again on Saturday in Dublin, with anticipation building ahead of the match in both countries – and it seems to have got to the respective national airlines too.
It all started on Wednesday, when Air New Zealand threw out some light trash talk on Twitter
Of course, Aer Lingus came right back at them to defend their honour
All very tame so far.
Then Air New Zealand started joking about changing Aer Lingus’s boarding passes to an appropriate colour
And there was only one solution to that from Aer Lingus
That looks better.
Next, they did a quick redesign of Air New Zealand’s in flight magazine
And the crowd down under responded in turn
Aer Lingus came back with a bigger idea
And were matched again
Finally, a forfeit was proposed
Which seems to have been agreed upon
The deal is set in Twitter stone now
