T5 Walsh admits it was OK to go ahead even though the staff weren’t ready.

You have to wonder about the arrogance of BA and its CEO. He freely admits in front of a UK parliament Select Committee on Transport that BA was not ready but it took a calculated risk. At the same time he laid the blame of delays on BAA, pointing that their failure to keep to the timetable deprived BA’s staff from completing training. So he was quite happy to take the risk and eat the cost as a delay of 6 months would have been the alternative at a much higher cost (presumably to BA).

You have to wonder why this was allowed to be like that. Perhaps Willie should admit that perhaps his training at Aer Lingus was not quite good enough for his real job at BA.

You can be the judge of that.
