An EI plane travelling from ORD to DUB was forced to divert to Goose Bay last night.

Here is the article from RTE (Irish National Broadcaster)

It seems that a smell of burning plastic forced the plane to divert to Goose Bay.

I expected a security diversion.

Airplanes are machines, things to break from time to time, luckily it was nothing serious. The "lucky" pax got a side trip to northern Canada.

I thought it was going to be a bomb threat because last week Aer Arann, FR and IB had threats. Good to hear it was nothing like that!
Thanks for the info EI787.

Hmm... I wonder who would win in a drinking contest, the Irish or the Newfies.

This isn't good for EI. They don't have any spare planes lying around that can take this one's place on other flights. Good to hear that it wasn't serious, though.  thumbsup 

Thanks for the article EI787.

Just...fly.

It seems they've had something going on anyways, they've been subbing out flights to JFK and BOS to North American, World and Euro Atlantic.

Possibly as early as Monday. I heard that there was a North American 757 flying for EI on Tuesday night DUB-JFK, that night a World MD11 operated EI112 JFK-SNN, and EI108 last night JFK-SNN-DUB.
Euro Atlantic was doing some BOS flights...

The IB to Madrid wasn't a bomb treat that's what the passengers made of, the person who was arrested for it spend a couple of days in prison and after those days it turned out to be a big communication mistake!

In April, you would so, they still have snow on the ground, and Goose Bay means your stuck In Labrador hardly the plesant Halifax, or PEI have fun freezing with nothing to do.

Being a Newfie myself, I would say that you would never see the end of it. Both groups would end up singing in bad slurs together and wake up together at one or the others house, then do it again the next night, best buddies Big grin

Why doesn't Aer Lingus fly to Canada, or do they?

I always thought they did a while ago before 9/11 but with privatisation around the corner they might start again. The shamrock does look good in the snow! Big grin
