Aer Lingus says it's reviewing its procedures after pictures showed its Belfast-to-Heathrow flight yesterday morning was almost full.
One passenger estimated about 95 percent of seats were taken, making social distancing impossible.
This was the @AerLingus flight from @BELFASTCITY_AIR to @londonheathrow this morning at 8:45. No social distancing taking place - one passenger told me they weren’t given any advice on how to keep themselves safe. More on @BBCevex next @taramillstv @NewsDeclan pic.twitter.com/eeAfcGf23O

The airline says there was an "unexpectedly high load" and any necessary changes will be implemented as a "matter of urgency".
