Couple of questions about Aer Lingus:

Why does EI have PVT's on their A332 and not on their A333??

What kind of IFE is there on the A333?

Stupid question but someone might know, what is EI likely to use on Sundays JFK-DUB with no stop over in SNN. the 333 or the 332?


Equally Cursed and Blessed.

1. The A333s are older aircraft and did not have advanced IFE installed - remember, the original AerLingus A333s were ex-AirInter who intended on using the A333 for mainly short haul domestic France services. AerLingus has simply not made in the investment in upgrading its IFE systems - as many US carriers going accorss the Atlantic also do not have advanced IFE systems on their aircraft, I assume that AerLingus does not believe that the investment is justified at this time. The A332 was intended for longer-haul services and is a newer bird - I think that the A332 was planned for the LAX route.

2. The A333s have overhead monitors to view movies, etc, on plus music channels.

3. The JFK-DUB flight is generally operated by the A333, AerLingus needs the seats on that route.

Only one EI A332 actually has PTVs, EI-DAA, the others just have standard IFE dexcribed above. I flew EI-LAX a few years ago MAN-DUB(!) and it had no PTVs.

EI-DAA is the aircraft that usually operates DUB-LAX.

Its just luck of the draw sometimes on the JFK-Ireland flights. I have often been scheduled on the A333 and got an A332. Usually the later flight to DUB gets the A332 I think.

I've seen the A332 land at JFK a few times.
