EVERYONE HAS THEIR own idea of what it means to really ‘make it’.

For some, it’s when you appear on The Simpsons. For others it’s the Late Late or a Callcard, but for the modern day Irish rugby superstar, a new bar has been set. You’ve got to get your face on an Airbus A320.

As of today: Robbie Henshaw’s done it, Rob Kearney’s done it, Conor Murray and Tommy Bowe have fuselage faces too.

One representative of each province has been appointed as brand ambassadors to the airline and will be seen on safety demonstration videos to be shown on transatlantic flights.
