OK, I hope somebody here can help me. I've recently moved to Dublin and was wondering if DUB ever got T7 action. If so when and where would be the best time place to see it? If not, where in general is the best place for spotting at DUB?

DL has flown it into DUB during the summer months. This year the extra 777 capacity is going to MXP. I am not familiar with what other airlines have flown into DUB from the US. I would imagine AA has, but I don't know for certain.
As for spotting I have no idea.



It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Delta is the only carrier to have flown 777s here so far; AA is only starting services from next month, but hopefully we might get 777s from them in time.

If and when EK ever comes to DUB, they'll fly 777s at some stage, too, but for the moment, it's only Delta that has flown the biggest twin.

No, AA will not send their 777s to Ireland.

American's 777s are configured in low-density, three-class configuration. The 767-300ERs don't have F class. In fact, it is thanks to the fact that AA removed F from their 767s two years ago that AA is flying new routes like O'Hare-Dublin and Miami-Manchester. The higher density configuration makes these lower-yielding routes viable.

Doesn't CO upgrade their flight to a 777 sometimes?

Even if CO did it in the past, with all the routes the 777 is needed on, it is doubtful they will have a 777 left to sub a flight to DUB.

DL is the only US carrier that has had 777 service to DUB. They've operated 763s from ATL and JFK. During the summer months they've operated MD-11s and 777s for increased demand.

US Airways only operates the 762 during the summer.

CO have "generally" operated a daily 752 using the triangular routing (EWR-DUB-SNN-EWR) during the winter. For summer months they've operated EWR-DUB with 767-400s. However, with their recent expansion widebodies are needed for other routes. This summer CO will operate a daily 762 to DUB and a daily 752 to SNN. I'd venture a guess and say that if CO continue to expand they will soon operate EWR-DUB 2x daily with 757s similar to EDI this year.

AA will finally commence service from ORD to DUB with a daily 767-300. BOS-SNN will be operated with a 752. You'll probably never see their 777 operated to DUB . . . again, low density, high yielding routes get those.

I believe last week/two weeks ago spotters were treated with a BA 777-200 operating a BOS-DUB flight for EI because EI-JFK was undergoing maintenance.

If DUB is to see future 777 service my bet would be on EK.

Well, the caption says Russian Airforce, so I guess it starts in Moscow with weapons for the IRA, but that's just my guess............. Silly

Thanks for all the replies in regards to the T7, but I'm still wondering where the best place to spot aircraft at the airport is?

Oy KL911 - less of that please!! (They're actually coming from Libya  wink  )

Anyhow, someone asked about the An124 - I know they carried in all of Iarnrod Eireanns current intercity rail-engine fleet from Bombardier Canada around 1995 (abouts). They seem to call by every so oftain but SNN seems to be their main activity spot.

B777 wise - there is the odd visitor thats not scheduled of course between charters and whatnots - BA has visited along with others in the past.



Next Flight: DUB-BOS (EI), BOS-DEN-PDX (SWA), SEA-BOS (AS)

Putting on my other hobby hat but they only delivered the first train, (R201 - River Shannon) it was a pr stunt and the rest came by sea the traditional way.

MarBergi , i hope u are settling down well in ireland. If u are looking for the best place to spot then there is a lay by that spotters use on a road (dont know the name) that is parallel to runway 28. Its an excellent spot for t/o and landings whn there is a westerly breeze.Now to get there...... if u are travelling northbound on the m50 motorway take the second last exit for ballymun.Turn left at the traffic lights and and continue along the narrow road for about 20 secs.You will pass a public golf course on the left and then come to a cross roads with traffic lights.By this time the airfield is perfectly visible.Anyway turn left and keep going for 30 secs and u cant miss it.

Regards

Saturday is good, you get a lot of charters etc, but they have not fully kicked off yet. If you go early in the morning, you will have the t/a arrivals with DL, CO and the EI fleet of 330's. In May and June, you will also have AA, US and AC. In the afternoon, you will get all the ususal European traffic as well as some charters from Spain, Portugal etc. Air Baltic fly in late afternoon from Riga, which is nice to see as they operate in the wee hours every day apart from Saturday. Sunday can also be a mixed bag.

Good Luck! Happy Spotting!!
Mike

Does this flight make a stop in Europe, or is it nonstop? What is the AC type?
How can Dub support a riga flight?

thanks!

Eh, why not? Dublin has lots of nonstop Eastern Euopean traffic, which is a very important market from Ireland.

This is a non-stop flight. Air Baltic fly 4 times per week NONSTOP to Dublin from Riga. a/c 737

Air Baltic also fly 4 times per week nonstop from Vilnius to Dublin. a/c 737

Lithuanian Airlines fly nonstop 4 times per week to Vilnius from Dublin. a/c 737

Estonian Air fly from Tallinn - Dublin 4 times per week nonstop. a/c 737

Also, LOT go double daily on Warsaw - Dublin (E170 and 737), as well as Aer Lingus 4 times per week (737/A320)

CO have operated a 777 to DUb before, was last year I think. Recently BA operated a 777 into DUB from either BOS or ORD as a charter on behalf of EI
