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
HV previously operated RTM-DUB, IT got cut, plenty of competition from surrounds airports in NL.Jump to post
LAS will definitely be a Mid J 747 with the older interior.
The "Super Hi J" jumbles go to JFK ORD BOS KWI RUH and DXB but occasionally pop up on other routes like SAN IAH ACC
I was the under the impression that to operate to/from HND internationally you had to maintain a presence at NRT? Was this only for a period of time or is this something I've made up?Jump to post
Good morning all!
I'm undertaking a project at work and as part of it I'm trying to find out an estimated cost of A319/320/321 turnaround.
I appreciate rates will vary and individual pare will be confidential.
But is it possible to find an average cost?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had a link to the info about where passengers connect to/from ex DUB via LHR? I've seen some details on here before, it's basically for a project at work about EI/BA syncing schedules between Ireland and LHR. Just my own idea not an actual company one. ThanksJump to post
Crew can contact the flight crew in 2 different ways, a normal call or an emergency call which will have a different tone/alert so they know it's urgent.Jump to post
This is unfortunate news for N Ireland, it'll also no doubt give Brexiters ammunition but clearly the route isn't financially viable. It's operated for a number of years so had plenty of time to bed in, I'm sure the larger variety of transatlantic routes from DUB just a couple of hours down the road...Jump to post
I was referring to the long haul fleet, even factoring in the 757s, it would be hard to justify a spare, on shorthaul BA have some spare capacity, if you look at thebasource.com you'll normally see a tech Airbus somewhere in the network but no significant if any cancellations.Jump to post
Most of Belgium's demand to Africa is to West Africa, not East Africa. In spite of its very strong route network into Africa, Sabena never served Ethiopia. Neither does Brussels Airlines. Is it O&D traffic to West Africa or connecting at BRU? There will be a mixture of course but as Belgium had...Jump to post
Airline equipment changes happen all the time to best suit their operation, it's neither a joke or pathetic. As was explained it is to ensure they are able to operated SIN daily with the 359 and the 330 is more than a suitable replacement on the PEK route. I doubt you'll get much sympathy on here fo...Jump to post
Heathrow appears to be running very well at the moment!Jump to post
Swissport won't have to do much preparation for handling a TK A330, they handle a number of the type everyday.Jump to post
