At this time: 1.) EI is not in OW 2.) EI is not in the AA/BA transatlantic JV 3.) As far as I can tell, AA/EI don't even code share 4.) IAG has not further developed DUB into a full fledged connecting hub that takes pressure off LHR and competes with KEF. Not to say EI has not developed the DUB hub...Jump to post

Flew with AC to YYZ & back in the last 10 days. Can’t say I’m in a rush to fly with them again, on the outbound quite a few IFE screens weren’t working, a reboot or 2 didn’t help. Flight back last night the whole system wasn’t working but at least they gave us notice before boarding, may as well...Jump to post
One business jet that might make an appearance is G-NOAH, an A319. It’s regularly used by Coolmore who have a leading contender in the race.Jump to post
With MKE's new international terminal only a couple years away (Demolition of E to begin sometime this year and 1st phase beginning next year with completion slated for 2020), any guesses or rumors, etc. on who will be the 1st international long haul carrier at MKE? Air Canda isn't longhaul because...Jump to post
Toulon (TLN) is stuck between Marseille (MRS), just 50 miles away and Nice (NCE) 100 miles aways. Both cities have always attracted most of the traffic. The airport is originally a Navi Air Base. The Terminal was built in the 60´s on a piece of land « given » by the Navy but the Runways and ATC are...Jump to post

Back in 2008 I flew to Palma de Mallorca from Stansted on EI-CSC, I think that this was one of Ryanair's first batch of 738's as it still had the Boeing 'eyebrows' and did not have the winglets compared to the aircraft on the return flight, I also remember that the cabin on CSC had the old style re...Jump to post

How about linking secondary cities in Europe that already have service to the US East Coast or Canada? Norwegian could offer a competitive product. LYS, NCE, VCE, etc come to mind. Are they within range if the A321LR? If they are, they're on the bare reach of it's range. Those destinations would be...Jump to post
How much is that? 3-4 cm of snow with some wind and the "storm" already has a name. :banghead: Ah another ignorant fool, do you have strong opinions on everything you see from just a few seconds video clip?

Still think Wizz are missing a trick by not venturing into the DUB market with a VIE route, the EI monopoly continues.Jump to post

I'm a bit confused as to what's going on at DUB now. It doesn't appear to have snowed in the last while, but nothing is landing. EI105 did recently take off, but the inbound EY41 has started circling over the Irish Sea, much like QR did before they diverted earlier. And UA 23 that went to BRU has n...Jump to post

Nobody really seems to know the answer to my original question, which was why CX was allocated within T1, and not T2? Given that carriers like EY have been dumped from T2, I assume that there is no space? Pathetic - the terminal is so young. The contrast between T1 and HKG is dramatic, on aesthetic...Jump to post

Mexico City still on the cards as Turkish looks to Irish expansion. Wow - interesting! I hope that this happens, and that TK wide-bodies come to DUB. Separately, I assume IAG will not let EI go to MEX / Latin America, because of IB? Cheers, C. It’d probably be more a case of no point than not letti...Jump to post

You do realize that just about every major European city has a direct year-round flight to India?
There are rumours they want to start ORD & IAH via DUB with 5th freedom but a certain few airlines are objecting.

I guess IAG wants to start "NIKI new" that quick in order to get ahead of Wizz, which begins flights ex VIE in April (Danzig, VAR, Tuzla), some in June (Rome, TLV, Valencia, Bari, MLA), the rest in November (Bergen, Billund, DTM, Kutaissi, Teneriffa, SKG, Nis, Ohrid, LCA).

A good few times, certain I’ve flown a few EI A320s more than once as well as one of their 330s. Flew a FR 738 twice on the same day over to LGW & back. Primera Air 738 DUB-PMI & the return a week later, flew the same route a year later on their 737 OY-PSF.Jump to post
Just been reported that Emirates signed a deal for 36 More A380 aircraft,,,, not sure what this means for their global aspirations. New countries, more regional airports or upgrades from B 777?
