You will find seat loads on EI transatlantic are always very full, either in Y or J class.

All my recent sectors to / from JFK were either sold out or almost so.

As for IFE - bring a book.

For inflight entertainment look out the window at the beautiful planet we live on, or go down the back of the aircraft and chat to people. Much more entertaining and enjoyable than watching yet another badly edited for aircraft hollywood movie on a 5'' screen.

In april I flew back from ICN with KE, and had a great chat with a former UK soldier who fought in the Korean war - he now goes back every year. I learnt something.. and returned to my wife who was still engrossed in a stupid movie. On my second last flight in 2005 I sat beside an Iraqui who was in London to vote in their elections - I learnt something new, rather than the washed up media speak.



The world is really getting smaller these days

Unless it's peak summer season, I've never known EI to be full trans-Atlantic. The LAX flights can be a bit sketchy sometimes as only 3x week and they price dump on that route. Now that it's an A330 operation, you should check the load- although in the good old days of their 747's, there was no need to do so- ditto with SABENA.

Can anyone give me an idea of how heavy the EI loads from ORD-DUB, Feb. 9th coming back the 14th are? It would be much appreciated! You can't beat $130USD each way!


What do I know? I just fly 'em.......

I flew DUB-ORD on an Aer Lingus A330-300 on February 21st of 2005 and it was a full aircraft. Of course no IFE  Silly Good flight though ORD-MAD-DUB-ORD for $300 round trip! Good weekend in Dublin  Smile

If you fly a decent airline they don't edit them!

The aircraft are full most of the time I have only been on one flight with them where there was about 12 seats empty. That's the lowest I have seen.

I'm not arguing but I've only once encountered a light load on an EI atlantic service. The low fares seem to be pulling in the pax!!

I can also vouch for high loads on transatlantic services. BOS and NYC from SNN are surprisingly full in the off peak months and I fly them about once a month. The €309 return offer from DUB to LAX sure is tempting in february too!


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

Yes, in the past couple of years both cities have become very popular with the Irish for cheap shopping trips and long weekends.

The loads tended to be pretty full on all the Transatlantic flights, and during the winter they do great prices, which encourages people to take a lot of weekend trips. Only 1 EI A332 has PTV's in economy (EI-DAA I think) and it is usually routed on the LAX route from what I've seen posted here before.
The other A332's tended to be routed on the BOS or NYC 2nd flights while the A333's do the main DUB-JFK/BOS/ORD and SNN/JFK flights. It would be nice if they upgraded the 2 other A332's to have PTV's, but they can't do it on the A333's cos the weight penalties on the ORD route would restrict the PAX upload too much.
According to the latest media reports, the privatisation route for EI is the best option for the Govt. based on a recent consulting report, and depending on conditions, it's scheduled for this Autumn. If it goes ahead successfully, then EI will have the money to upgrade the long-haul fleet (A350/B787 decision time) and DM (CEO) has said once that decision is made they'll upgrade the current fleet (New Business seats etc) until the new aircraft arrive.



Aircraft I've flown: A300/A310/A320/A321/A330/A340/B727/B732/B733/B734/B735/B738/B741/B742/B744/DC10/MD80/IL62/Bae146/AR
