After almst fifteen years of Ryanair's 737-200's loyally shuttling passengers between Luton and Dublin, this all ended on Sunday 10th October. The skies over Luton will be a lot quieter!  Crying

Ryanair have based EI-DCL (Boeing Dreamliner livery  Big thumbs up) at the airport as the 737-200 replacement, the aircraft will only serve Dublin four times a day as opposed to five times due to the increased capacity on the aircraft.

This allows the aircraft to operate a daily rotation Luton-Dinard and is the first of four 737-800's to be based at the airport over the coming routes.

RIP - Ryanair 737-200's
We'll miss you!  Crying

Hey all,

Although a fairwell, I will not miss these, those engines were incredibly loud, and often while being half asleep waiting for a bus at the station early in the morning going to work (which is practicaly at the end of the runway) they tended to give me a 'deaf' ear, I tell you that certainly woke me up............!

Before the 732's were the 1-11's, so FR's DUB services from LTN have been noisey and smokey for many, many, years!  Big thumbs up The 732's will be missed for those clamshell thrust reversers (I never, ever, tire of seeing them in action), but will be replaced by quieter and less tatty cabins.

Sorry for being pedantic but the first -200 joined FR in 1994. We Dublin folk have to suffer these aircraft for another while. Thankfully the Aer Lingus fares are getting lower and lower so other options are available  Smile

You Dublin folk don't have to "suffer" for too much longer. They are speeding up the retirement of the 732 fleet because of their recent sale deal. BTW, does that 7E7 livery look great or what? I would love to see a full profile pic of the Air Berlin plane to see what they did with the winglets.

Old news!

It's always a shame, from the fan's view if not from the passenger's, when these machines are withdrawn. Still, the 738 offer superior comfort, less noise and generally better surrounds, which, for the 'normal' passenger, is best.

Have they set an actual or approximate date for the final 732 service. Wonder where it will be from? XXX-DUB i imagine. I flew a 737-200 BHX-PMI and back in July. It was good fun, almost glad my flight was changed from Monarch to EAF! Also made me realise that "progression" is needed though. Wasn't the most comfortable of flights, and you can certainly tell European are strapped for cash  Sad Any word on any fleet changes from them?

I don't go around BOH that much to be honest. Last time I went was during easter, a friend and I visited the Museum and stayed around to check the movements... nothing major really just choppers and some GA. but while i was in the museum i heard on the ATC feed a ryanair being cleared for takeoff and later on a BA 733 arrived!!.

I should go sometime. maybe next or the other sunday

Cheers

MIAspotter

P.S. at around what time does the FR 732s depart BOH?

You'll be on a PIK-based 738 (routes PIK-BOH-GRO-BOH-PIK).

Delboy,

You must have mistaken the Ryanair on Saturday; there were only 800s flying about. And if I remember correctly, Luton were using 08 for the majority of Saturday's ops.

It's a lovely aircraft, but shame about the engines. On a cold morning, with the wind from the east, it was possible to hear the -200s departing from Luton off 08, from Leighton Buzzard. Leighton Buzzard is arround 12 miles west of the airport.

It's surprising that they got away with it for as long as they did. And if only those RYR pilots would stick to the instrument departure routing....

Pe@rson cheers for the info!

European, I live right in Bournemouth! near Ensbury Park! in fact I can actually see planes taking off from BOH and obviously hear the -200 as they blast away.

Yes the US Airways 757 is still at Luton Airport, see it out on the ramp today, it is carrying a UK reg G-OOBJ pretty certain it is going to First Choice Airways.

Dreamliner was at Luton today also, see it 4 times looks lovely up close!
