Re: Irish 6/18: Eastern Magic!

I've been saying it for a while, the DAA's 'ah sure it will do' attitude of just lashing up temporary piers and parking areas just isn't good enough. They need to build another permanent pier or move ahead with plans for Terminal 3.

Re: Irish 6/18: Eastern Magic!

Its worrying that there dosent seem to be any movement on additional pier or taxiing capacity in DUB (obviously the second runway will fix much of this when its finished), There are 4 extra widebody departures (2x EI 330's, CX 350, HU 330 and one more?) this year alone in the morning schedule, what ...

Re: Irish 6/18: Eastern Magic!

Unfortunate that Aer Lingus wont be getting A350's for the foreseeable future, its looks are starting to grow on me. Hopefully Thai or Singapore will follow Cathay's lead next year.

Great to see Air Canada back in Shannon. The A321NEOLR / 737 Max could be a real game changer for Shannon.

Dubai and Lagos are two routes that will be operationally in range of the new A321's. Launching a 2-3 flight per week A321 schedule to Dubai could possibly work on O&D traffic alone. I cant imagine the powers that be being very encouraging of a Lagos route sadly.

Another possibility is subbing one or two A330's / A350 or a 777 from BA or IB for the summer season when the capacity is needed. Like the Omni 767s a few years ago. Not a great long term solution though due to product inconsistencies.
