Re: Irish 6/19: Dublin's bubblin' ...

The timing of that seems a bit odd, just as the government is heading into its twilight days.

I would have thought an EI regional ATR flight would have come before a Ryanair 737 service if the demand was there.

Re: Irish 5/19: Summer is a comin' in!

Has Ryanair, or any other credible airline signalled they will launch routes from Waterford if the runway is extended? Surely EI regional would have made a route work by now if there was money in it?

The use of the 321neos on some european routes will free up some 320s. Unless they plan on disposing of the existing 321s.
