The airline made the announcement yesterday on its Twitter profile to its more than ten thousand followers, and the news has been pretty well received.

Twitter UK seems to be implying that this might be a first, but if any readers know of other airlines (around the world) who have beaten Aer Lingus to the punch, hit the comments to let us know.
