EVERYONE is saying the same thing after a cheerful Dublin Airport worker was spotted doing a new dance for passengers.
Charlotte, who can be found on the social media platform at @charlottes_shadows, shared a video of popular Dermot making passengers’ day in the line for security.
She said: “This man makes early flights worth it.”
In the five-second clip, Dermot dances while showing passengers where they should go.
A number of people commented underneath the clip and said they love seeing Dermot at the airport.
One said: “I’ve seen him in the airport and he made my 4am start so worth it, can’t beat the Irish.”
Another wrote: “I saw him last week, he’s brilliant it was like 5am and he’s there with the banter.”
A third person said: “We need him in the staff security every morning please!”
This was not the first time Dermot was spotted spreading some early morning cheer.
He went viral in January for singing Tony Christie’s Is This The Way To Amarillo.
One person said: “Legend.”
Another added: “He’s brilliant, I see him the odd time when I’m travelling.”
A user brought it to Twitter to praise Dermot after seeing him in action.
They said at the time: “There is a man working at @DublinAirport security who is a showman.
“Cheerfully calls out hello to folks while running the crew. Refers to children as ‘bambinos’.
“Asks about their colourful plastic bottles. Relentlessly peppy at 5am. Basks in the limelight.”
Dublin Airport replied: “That would be Dermot, who certainly does his best to put a smile on passengers’ faces at #DublinAirport every day. Here he is in action recently…”
FRENCH ATC STRIKES
Meanwhile, thousands of Irish holidaymakers are being warned of delays and cancellations due to an air traffic control strike this week.
Staff in France are taking to the picket lines again from March 20 to 23.
All Ryanair flights to and from France are affected by the disruption.
The airline has said all affected passengers will be notified and have apologised to flyers but said it was “out of their control”.
Ryanair has launched an EU Passenger petition calling on Ursula Von Der Leyen to protect passenger flights and keep the EU skies open during the strikes.
French domestic flights are protected due to French laws but the non-French flights are not covered.
Ryanair’s Chief Executive Officer Eddie Wilson said: “While we respect the right to strike, it is completely unacceptable that Europe’s passengers flights that overfly France are repeatedly delayed or cancelled by French ATC strikes.
“So far in 2023, more than 1,000,000 EU passengers have faced unnecessary delays/cancellation as a result of 14 separate French ATC strike, with zero action taken by Ursula von der Leyen’s Commission to protect them.
“It’s just not fair that flights to and from France are protected by min.
“Despite multiple unanswered calls on the EU Commission to protect passenger flights by keeping the EU skies open during French ATC strikes, Ryanair has launched an EU wide petition to ‘Protect Passengers – Keep EU Skies Open, where passengers are asked to support our call on the EU Commission to take action to protect Europeans and their families and their travel plans during French ATC strikes, which have become an almost weekly occurrence.
“Afterall, if the EU won’t listen to its airlines, perhaps they’ll listen to millions of Europe’s passengers instead.”
