In Ireland, Aer Lingus is one of the country's most recognisable brands - with anyone who travels through our airports seeing that familiar green shamrock.

However, it seems that there is still a bit of an awareness issue in the US, as Ryan Seacrest was left very confused live on TV this week.

While discussing a terminal move by airline Delta with co-host Kelly Ripa on Live With Kelly And Ryan this week, Seacrest listed several other airlines would be affected.

Unfortunately, he got a bit stumped when it came to our national airline.

“If you’re going to Canada, Air Canada. If you’re going to Lingus, Aer Lingus. I don’t know where that is… I think it’s in Ireland somewhere,” he said.

The comment led Kelly to admit that she had no idea of the origin of the company.

"I’ve always been curious about Aer Lingus, but I’ve always been too embarrassed to ask. I’m like “What is Aer Lingus?” and I wanna go on it."

Always quick off the mark, Aer Lingus wasted no time in responding to the presenters via their Twitter account.
