Hello

Yesterday I was returning from Dublin's airport to the city center on the aircoach bus and saw a VS A340 about to land. It seemed to be a A340-300, any ideas what it was doing in Dublin?

VS 340s are frequent visitors to DUB as they use FLS there for maintenance.

Just to correct myself FLS at DUB is now SR Technics.

Who bought out Team Aer Lingus, FLS or SR?

Weren't they doing quite well for themselves, before being saddled by trade unions a few years ago?

Isn't the A340 there to have its Upper Class Suite installed?

FLS Did, I think it was some kind of joint venture for a while as it was called TEAM FLS, FLS has subsequently been taken over by SR.
