A curious notion that Galway passengers use Dublin out of "habit", as if convenience, or price were not relevant factors. Maybe not always but habit definitely comes into it in some cases - I know people who live nearer to SNN than DUB and they don't even bother to research prices from SN...Jump to post
Does Knock really have the footfall and attraction to garner TATL services?! I mean, no disrespect intended to the area, and it’s a beautiful area, you can see why people would be interested in going there, but it’s all quite rural and very spread out. The closest city to sustain it is Galway, which...Jump to post
I had the (mis)fortune to travel through the Ryanair pier of Dublin airport last Wednesday morning, (in the 6:30 tranche of early morning flights). The speaker system in that pier is woeful as is any staff member's capacity to use it. Unfortunately it didn't stop them from trying, with one announcem...Jump to post

It’s the first time I even noticed the KLM swoosh. I was wondering what everyone was harping on about. I’m still wondering, because I’d agree with Shamrock350: it looks like a mistake. Here’s to the diminishing hope of a 330 getting decked out in all singing, all dancing, glittering and dazzling gre...Jump to post
Heard there are 2 A330 arriving next year alongside any neos that are being delivered plus 757 are staying until 2020 I believe 4 new routes is a lot on long haul expansion for an airline the size of EI. Where are your sources? I’m noting from your post history that you suggested EI was considering...Jump to post
It’s 25 ish rotations ... Let’s not get too hysterical. AFAIK, the 25 doesn't account for IAG's other rotations through BA - so, the overall number is quite a bit higher than that?

With the new LCY service, EI will be operating up to 50x daily flights between Dublin and London. I know that this is spread across multiple airports, but would it not be worth using A330's for some of these flights? Yes, there are gate issues, but just park them remotely and bus the passengers. I ...Jump to post
When we can get A350s leaving the current 10/28 with little or no difficulty, I don't think the planned length of 10L/28R will pose any obstacles for any route the DAA might target. It would be interesting to know what kind of routes IALPA believes is being prevented by the planned length . I'd muc...Jump to post

Probably the brakes smoking. Someone who doesn't know how to taxi would use the brakes to control speed. This is a really naive question, but how else would you control speed?

No, I am slating posters for defending BA with the premise that BA is so awesome that such a thing will never happen. All due respect sir, I don’t think that’s what they were doing.

I don’t think that’s what they were doing. I think they were defending BA because there is likely much more to the story, that none of us know about.

You keep slating posters for suggesting there’s more to the story. It’s the same thing.

Wasn't there another recent incident of BA FA's rant on snapchat about Nigerians? Oh yeah.

Why is the word bloody racist against Indians? Also, there are 3 sides to every story.

Seriously. That doesn't even sound believable Agreed. This is BA Long Haul. An FA getting more animated than "just above comatose" and speaking louder than a mumble? That would be a first.

Hmm. With the first batch of 321LR replacing the 757s, will IE have enough metal to cover new routes next year?

I can’t find it right now, but did the fleet planning from the IAG investo...Jump to post
Would easyJet, Jet2 or Ryanair ever move to BHD? Are high costs and a curfew too off-putting for them? Cheers, C. Runway is only 6000 feet, so it limits options.

There is a video today of a Vueling A320 tearing up a piece of tarmac at DUB and it getting stuck to the landing gear, the return trip was delayed 2 hours.

It’s about a 2 hour drive between Dublin and Belfast. The two cities are connected via motorway pretty much the entire way.
