They made the shamrock hearts more – well, ‘hearty’. The reason is that it makes passengers – now referred to as guests, appreciate the warmth and determination of the airlines welcome.

We can all get that? Can’t we? You look at the hearts in the shamrock and think “oh I feel extra welcomed and loved as a guest in this tiny cramped economy seat”. I mean who wouldn’t? The flush of warmth from the shamrock is so obvious it’s the first thing that comes to mind.

The only reason the shamrock is on the wingtips? Because and they admit it, is it looks good in photos on social media.

The new font is again, entirely for clarity on apps and social media.
