First A321LR for Aer Lingus now in full colours. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-nAMAjVj0Als/XOhfpOGVa7I/AAAAAAAB9iA/2THLfvXZmt8Oi8TNLi3MAS0OrXduvfHqQCLcBGAs/s1600/47925600782_f876d92457_k.jpg St. Ruadán https://xfw-spotter.blogspot.com/2019/04/a321-253nxlr-aer-lingus-d-ayav-ei-lra.htmlJump to post
Yes, EI-LRA. I thought we'd already seen it in full colours a few weeks back, just without engines. Looking forward to it! Has EI announced any further conversions or options for it. I keep losing track. Possibly they're waiting for a firmer spec from Airbus on the new extended range LR model. Only...Jump to post

I disagree, I don’t think the Bia menu needs a total rethink at all. It may become boring for regulars but you’ll rarely find a business that wants to change a winning formula just to keep things interesting. The route and passenger profiles between Jet2 and Aer Lingus are going to be slightly diffe...Jump to post
Not overly surprised at the further delay to the A321LR introduction, Hamburg are really struggling at the moment. The first sighting of EI-LRA was only in mid-April and it was engineless, other airlines have had some of their aircraft much further along the assembly line and still months away from ...Jump to post
I'm surprised so many in this thread are shocked that British Airways charge for food and drinks on short haul, I'm guessing most are non Europeans as not only was the move well publicised (and criticised) at the time but it's pretty much the standard within Europe these days, free snacks are becomi...Jump to post
You can tell who’s not British in this thread. Afternoon Tea is the name of a meal. It doesn’t necessarily mean it comes with a tea beverage. Infact Champagne is actually the most popular drink with afternoon tea amongst the younger generation these days. This is a bit like complaining that Disney ...Jump to post
Some parts of the UK refer to dinner or a small meal as "tea" but that's a bit of a stretch in this case as it's just a scone so it's neither, tea or a meal. Fellow IAG carrier Aer Lingus offers a scone with a hot drink for €5.50 or £4.80 from their own buy on board menu which is arguably ...Jump to post
Awful livery, and the rebrand itself isn't much better. It feels very dated, like a mid-90s holiday airline. Actually it makes me think of the current Wizzair livery, which honestly isn't that old. Of course it looks cheap, it's supposed to. But to me it sure doesn't feel like mid-90s. Those would ...Jump to post

The SSJ was on thin ice at the best of times, the crash this weekend, even if proven to be unrelated to the airframe, certainly doesn't help its situation. It's a pity because by all accounts it was a reasonably nice aircraft to fly, it was relatively effecient and cheap to purchase but the lack of ...Jump to post
Waking up to hear the death toll has increased so dramatically is gut-wrenching, what a terrible tragedy this has turned out to be.
Sincere condolences to all those affected, the ones who were lost, their families, friends and colleagues. RIP.

It is so easy for us to sit at home or in the office on airliners.net in our safe environment and criticise people in an evacuation taking their hand luggage with them.

While it's very possible the fire was a consequence of a gear up landing, it was very, very advanced as the aircraft was still at considerable speed down the runway and the aftermath photos show the wings, engines and mid-forward fuselage near untouched while the tail is completely destroyed which s...Jump to post

Has Ryanair been offering pre order hot meals for a while now? Must admit have not flown them for ages and only noticed when a mate mentioned that they had seen it.

EI-CVB is now in the new livery after its liaison with the Aer Corps last weekend.
Doubt we'll see many more repaints over the summer.
The most recently available long haul fleet plan for Aer Lingus suggested the airline expected a total of four additional A330s between 2020-2021, two in each year to be exact. We’ve now had confirmation of the first two, listed as A330-302’s, so the next question is what the following two frames wi...Jump to post
Confirmation of the additional A330s for Aer Lingus.
2 A330-302's have been listed for Aer Lingus in the Airbus A330 Production List as MSN 1950 & 1951.
The first is due late this year.
Nice to have Ethiopian on the route but much like Hainan to Edinburgh, it's a novelty. I'm sure it'll attract a few well informed flyers, enthusiasts and some very price sensitive passengers but at four weekly I doubt it'll make much of an impact and will likely go unnoticed by everyone else, a bit ...Jump to post
Norwegian reduces Dublin-Hamilton service in July 2019 Between 06 July - 28 July, the airline will operate this route 3 times a week, instead of 4 with a 737-800. The schedule for August onwards "remains pending" according to the report. https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/28...Jump to post
It’s an improvement but somewhat disjointed, the tail is great and the wave is forgivable but the blue engines and grey belly isn’t a good combination.Jump to post
It may well be a rip off but it’s one of the rare occasions where the rip off is better than the original. This livery also makes more sense, those shapes and colours do well to represent the ice and mountains of NordStar’s home regions whereas Etihad’s isn’t as clear. Either way it’s definitely a n...Jump to post
Aer Lingus took part in a training exercise with the Aer Corps this evening. The Airbus A320, EI-CVB, departed Dublin just before 7pm and spent over an hour in the air completing numerous laps over the midlands before landing at Shannon. It was accompanied by two other aircraft, most likely PC-9M tr...Jump to post
Also, are they definitely putting the 'ski mask' design on the cockpit windows of the A321neo's? Some neo operators have gone for it but most have not. I saw a rendering which looked cool but not sure if it was official. It would look great if this was applied to the entire fleet. The official rend...Jump to post
What is the latest news on the new EI 321's? Very quiet! First pic taken yesterday. http://rw.www.flickr.com/photos/mathiasdueber/33747439088/in/photolist-Tq9rU5 Looking good! Interesting to see the entire tail painted, the standard of the new livery is to leave the lower leading edge of the vertic...Jump to post
The next widebody selection at IAG will be tied to expansion of LEVEL. Whether for 338s or 788s or larger, LEVEL will want a single-model fleet and their 332s will be RE-shuffled within IAG, including maybe EI. Aren't Aer Lingus planning on losing their 200's to focus on 300's though ? So would it ...Jump to post

Ryanair alters its livery more frequently than most people realise. The changes are small but effective in keeping the whole look fresh. The livery has essentially been various versions of the same design since the mid-90s; the blue belly with a yellow stripe, blue engines, blue tail and flying ange...Jump to post

Are Aer Lingus maintaining the same baggage allowance and free drink + snack that cityjet offered under it's own brand on the Avros or has it reverted to the same levels as EI mainline?

Aer Lingus have updated their website with a preview of the ATR and 757 in the new livery although its unlikely the 757s will wear it. https://www.aerlingus.com/experience-aer-lingus/our-aircraft/atr/ Looks quite awkward on the ATR to be honest.

With the grounding of the 737 MAX I was wondering what AC would use for their DUB-YUK flights this summer and it seems an A330 is scheduled. Was this announced before or is it just temporary?

Landor is stunning, it wasn't until I saw it in the flesh today that I realised what a beautiful design it was. It was elegant, authoritative and formal to the extreme which worked brilliantly for that era, a time when British Airways was probably at its height in terms of popularity.

Classic Ryanair, guess the deal expired. There’ll be a dozen other airports queuing up for Ryanair’s business, no matter how short lived it ends up being. Although the reasoning does appear more plausible than the usual guff, weaker domestic market in the UK and rising fuel costs would make BFS a di...Jump to post
It seems there’s no single perfect replacement for the RJ85 at CityJet.
