Aer Lingus' newest and last Airbus A330-200 was just delivered a few days ago and is due to visit JFK tomorrow (Thursday) at 14:00 (EST) as EI 105 from Dublin. As I see it, the -200 model is rare at JFK and also this is the only one at present to have PTV's so maybe some of you guys with ramp access..............

Thanks for the heads-up, too bad I'll be working tomorrow. The -200's isn't that rare at JFK, it's been seen a few times and I think it's sked every Tuesday until the MD-11 is used this Spring/Summer. However, a new reg. is always needed.

yeah thanks for the heads up. Since the Aer Lingus 330-200 comes in to JFK so infrequently i've had to go to LAX to nail it- i'll probably end up getting this new one in LAX too. I think the -200 looks much much hotter than the -300.

Joe & Mike,
I was actually going to try and see it today myself but since access to the airport perimeter road in Dublin is so appallingly bad I depend on my dad to drive me there, too bad he's working today
Anyaway glad to be of some help
BTW, the -200 does the run to Newark quite a bit, about half and half with the -300 but i think thats mostly in winter
Joe, I agree completely, the -200 is so much nicer
