BA were granted quite a lot of the Monarch slots at LGW and have increased frequency on a number of routes but this has been done quite quickly without them having enough of their own equipment to use hence using other airlines to cover the schedule. NEO delays haven’t helped but they begin arriving...Jump to post
The wind doesn’t even have to be that strong but coming from a certain direction it creates turbulence off the rock which makes an approach difficult.
I was diverted last week but because a rock fall had damaged some equipment related to the airport but we knew even before leaving London.
My mother and 17 friends have been stuck in Amsterdam since last Tuesday because of the snow closures and the back log of customers, they are finally flying home today and have nothing for praise for the way they have been looked after by Aer Lingus.Jump to post
As some of you will have seen Aer Lingus will operate a number of BA flights to/from Heathrow from early February onwards so we’ll get to see the shamrock at terminal 5! It does mean DUB won’t have a BA LHR nightstopper for a few weeks but it returns in March. EI will also operate some HAM flights f...Jump to post
So apparently it’s been confirmed that Menzies will enter the ground handling business at DUB and will take over BA/IB/VY from April, can anyone confirm? A relative who works on the ground at EI suggests this could be the beginning of IAG outsourcing ground handling for all IAG airlines at DUB inclu...Jump to post
Each individual airline will have their own uniform standards relating to each of the items you've mentioned. At the airline I work for longer hair is fine if maintained correctly, piercings for men are out and no visible tattoos.Jump to post
I'm not saying it's not going to be Seattle, but don't believe everything you here in a cabin full of cabin crew, it's my profession and I can confirm 90% of what's spoken is crap and crew certainly aren't who these thing she leaked to! #crewmourJump to post
I looked at a random date in July and it's only one dailyJump to post
According to a Facebook page, today's MIA returned after making contact with runway lights on takeoff! Any more info?Jump to post
The AF numbers are surprising to me, only 8% connect to long haul via CDG! I expected it to be much higher tbh!Jump to post
PHL is great news for Aer Lingus and the DUBHUB project. I know people aren't happy that they are playing it safe but I really don't think a route like DFW or IAH would work from DUB.Jump to post
If the PA doesn't work this is a perfectly acceptable way to deliver the safety demonstration and will be most airlines SOP.Jump to post
Like you say it's all down to wether or not it's safe for BA to operate the route.Jump to post
I noticed someone on Facebook asking what type of aircraft Privelage Style will be using on their EI booked flight to LAX next June/July. So I did some research and sure enough EI have some LAX flights listed as being operated by Privelage Style! Are EI going to be using them for the next summer or ...Jump to post
Discretion is a period of time crew can operate beyond what is normally legal.
For example at my airline a 4 sector days reporting between 0600-1329 means we can operate for 12 hours, discretion is needed when delays etc happen and is limited to a maximum of 2 hours.
EI-LAX sustained damage from contact with ground equipment and hasn't flown since the end of August. The EI long haul programme is quite tight in the summer time so any issues such as this cause disruption. There is some more info about delays and cancellations on the Irish thread.Jump to post

Where can one work best in or around the Dublin airport for a full workday? Soon I'll need to self connect in Dublin. To save up a vacation day, I want to work between my arrival flight (early morning) and departure flight (evening). Has anyone of you done that before? Essentially, just need a plac...Jump to post
These posts about delays at passport control wind me up! These are the same people that will moan when someone who shouldn't be in the country does something they should, why don't we're just wave everyone in.... Also note the that GAJ is operating to SFO today, is it the only 333 that can operate t...Jump to post
As theginge has said, a lot of the time these slots come forward. At my airline we do exactly the same thing. Get closed up and let them know you're ready to go and more often than not you get away earlier. If you release everyone back into the terminal you risk some not turning back up and missing ...Jump to post
To say that IAG is concerned about Norwegian is an understatement! As my employer I can tell you they view them as a big threat and they have no problem telling us about it and what we need to do to counter the attack. Just look at FLL and OAK being launched from LGW this summer and JFK a few months...Jump to post
The EI results are fantastic! When you look at the group they are far more profitable than VY and made almost as much money as IB which is impressive given the size of the operations!
The sooner the better the 321s are confirmed and delivered, it opens real potential for EI.
I've been having a detailed look at EI schedules for the upcoming summer season, as was mentioned a while back there are some cuts to city routes in favour of increased frequency on the sun routes. But I've noticed that there is no service to BRU at all on Saturdays, the early 0640 flight on Saturda...Jump to post
