33/07 - A Special Dubliners' Aviation Thread!

Well it had to happen! And to celebrate properly, we're going to find an airline willing to order thirty three widebody Airbus twins - and get the Taoiseach to announce the order!

Turty tree A-tree turties!

I know it's lame, but hey it's midweek; you get the better jokes at the weekend!

Welcome to a new Irish aviation thread and don't worry, it's not just for de Dubliners; de Corkonians and de Shannonsiders are all welcome!

It's been an interesting few days and with Aer Lingus about to announce its new Belfast route and Ryanair jumping the gun, it looks like Belfast - City/Aldergrove - will be a new battle ground between EI and FR. Big Green is apparently about to add BFS-LHR, with four daily services; interesting to see how BD reacts to this.

I would just love to be a fly on the wall when all this was being discussed; I know the airline is supposed to be privatised and the airline, independent of govt control, but I wonder how BFS was chosen over BHX, if indeed this is the outcome!

What does the future hold? Well, if we knew that ... Will there be long haul; will there be a new order?

There's no break from the action on the Irish aviation front, Summer or not. Even outside Dublin!

Excellent introduction as usual Kaitak.

Quoting Kaitak (Thread starter):

I hope you're not suggesting government interference in the Irish aviation industry here Kaitak, that wold be unheard of!!! Seriously though, Im rally disappointed about BFS. Yes Im sure it will work for EI, in a way. But compared to the sort of success they could have had by just being a little braver and picking somewhere with a bigger population and more possibilities (yes of both success and failure) then BFS surely will just be more of the same EI spinelessness

Thank you Kaitak for another great intro. Do you stay up all night thinking of what you are going to say or do you just come up with these ideas off the top of your head? I could name a few politicans in Co. Clare who would definitely be interested in hiring you to as a speach writer.

Glad to hear we are all still welcome.

I am surprised with EI chosing BFS over BHX. One can only imagine that BHX has much more potential than BFS but lets give BFS a chance & see how it works out. FR are already on the offensive as usual announcing three routes out of BHD today albeit with a restricted payload.

Sure, we're past the days of central planning, but I am concerned that there's an attitude that just because EI won't serve Asia, or if it makes a pig's ear of DXB and doesn't interline with EK, we say "oh well, that's it".

Hmm quoting this from the last thread. Hope it works. Anyway i forgot to say i was talking to an acquaintance of mine from Australia and he flew home via dubai with EK/EI bout 2 months ago. He commented on how crap EI was but i never found out why that was. He said he got a o/w flight for $800 which is a brilliant price. I think i paid about $1300 o/w with SQ.

Anyway did anyone hear Adam Ruddock on the radio talking about his biography of MOL. He was asked where MOL would go after Ryanair and he said he did not know and also he thinks he will be around for some time in FR.

Regarding Asian flights dont we need to lengthen our runway before this can happen. I think SQ will be here like a shot once this happens as they have an office here and they were doing lots of advertising in Feb/March. I would say they would outdo EY on advertising. I suppose we will have to see. So is anyone going to buy a charity seat on the A380???

Hmmm no I would probably be out priced!! Although the more they get the better as its a good cause!! I will wait until miles seats become available and also when its on the LHR route so I can do LHR-SIN-SYD !!

EISHN just one question , you say on a DUB to SNN flight you cant do web check in and you cant use fastpass machines ?? Is that right?? Do you just have to go to the desk to get a seat??

I'd say he flew on an A330 without any PTVs. This means he gets off of a 14 hour or so flight with EK, on an A345. Those seats look pretty comfy. Not to mention the immense size of the IFE system, and the size of the PTVs. It has the new Airbus cabin. Everything is much more rounded, sleek, elegant, and fresh. He stapes onto one of EI's ageing birds, with the old cabins, practically no IFE, no Laptop power, broken lights and air conditioning, not to mention how bad the toilets get on EI flights. Also the food offerings. Big tasty meals with EK (from what I've heard) with free snacks and alcoholic drinks as well. EI serve decent enough meals out of Ireland. Snacks have to be payed for, as well as drinks. Has anyone seen the "new" headphones on EI lately (and not the one shown in my TR   )? They look like what VS was offering in 1992. Just some thoughts of mine.

You can't select your seats. You can check in via the web and the machines, you just can't select your seats. They just give them to you. But once onboard, you can change to wherever (except Premier seats).

Jees pretty damning comments EISHN, unfotunatly there is f**k all there i can disagree with. Westbound EI are considered to be fine purely due to the fact that the competition is crap. Lets be honest, 20 year old DL 767s, cramped CO 757s and the awful planes that US offer would look good if we compared them to some Latin American planes of the 1980s. But when EI come up against any sort of a quality airline such as EY, EK, CX, SQ etc then hey really do look second rate in every way, except for their fantastic staff

Looks like EI's current product just isn't good enough for East bound routes yet & maybe that's why they are continuing to focus on the US for the time being.

The Aer Lingus long-haul product is poor but thats being sorted, other airlines take a while to retire and introduce new aircraft with better products the same goes for Aer Lingus. One thing I am not happy about is that EI-DAA, EI-EWR and EI-LAX will be in the fleet for many years and they will not improve the cabin, the fact that passengers will still be flying to LAX without PTVs in 5 years time is embarrassing for Aer Lingus, even if they put the new A330s on the longer routes theres still a chance that you may get a PTVless aircraft. They could also work on the menu in economy, some more choice wouldn't hurt!

I haven't flown UA but my AA experiences haven't been that great. IFE was fine but I'm sure the new AVOD EI have would be better and the seats would probably be better for space and overall comfort. Food was really nice on AA but the cabin crew looked like they were ready to chuck you out the door if weren't quick enough eating it. My last AA flight was in 2004 so things may have changed.

My two experiences with AA were both crap. I flew twice from SNN-BOS with AA & both times on the outward leg of the journey the IFE system broke down. Both times were on 752's which are very cramped even at the best of times. However I will concede that the food was above average as far as airline food goes.

I can concure. Although with these new aircraft coming on line things should be looking up. Im flying delta at xmas so i will see for myself what they are like. Unlike you OA260 i dont get free upgrades or i cant/wont pay the price. Flying east i will always choose SQ if it suits. I would not be interested in Dubai anyway.

You know, it's funny. Fly on DUO after flying on DAA, you can't get over the world of difference there is. The cabin is brighter, sleeker, modern, refreshing, and relaxing. But, I was surprised. Flying home, I couldn't help but feel a little more cramped, and the seat felt a little more firm, all in all making it hard to get any sleep, although I did manage an hour or so, I'm not really sure. But then, for my DUB-SNN flight (EI 133) on EI-DUB, we had the old seats like on DAA, and most of the cabin was covered with the new covers, although about 30% still had the old green covers. It felt like I was flying in a dinosaur, even though it also had the new carpet. But, I found it to have more legroom, and also found myself to be a little more comfortable, although I prefer the position of the headrests on DUO. But I'd take DUO anyday for the IFE (although chatting to the cute american student across from me for the flight was good enough entertaiinment for me on the way to SNN Big grin ).

De paper is reporting that there is a serious risk of all out industrial action at EI, over PCI 07; the unions and SIPTU particularly are objecting to plans to cut employee holidays and overtime; industrial relations are apparently at an all-time low. It's also been revealed that Merrion Stockbrokers are predicting profits far higher than those suggested by the airline at arbitration talks earlier this year.

I agree completely; this really isn't good enough; another good reason, as suggested above, for EI to focus on routes to the U.S. That said, I flew CO and although the 757 is a narrowbody, the service was very good and CO will soon have PTVs in Y class - AVOD included - on the 757.

Looks like EI are in for more turbulent times. This really needs to stop if EI is to have any sort of a chance to compete on level terms with other carriers. It is very obvious that EI still carry's the burden of "Semi-State Company" & that employees/unions have not fully adapted to working in the private sector just yet. I hope all sides involved will see reason & avoid yet another embarassing strike in EI.

Couldn't agree more Kaitak. Having flown both AA's & CO 757's for some reason, even though the planes are almost identical, CO didn't seem so bad whereas AA seemed to be the longest most cramped flight I ever was on. I found it was so bad that when I finally managed to get to sleep, I dreamed I was getting off onto the airbridge at SNN! I I woke up after about an hour to find there was still three hours flying to go. Perhaps the most depressing moment I can ever remember while flying. Contrary to this, CO seem to have slightly more leg room & more comfortable seats as well as the fact that their 757's generally look to be in better condition than AA's both inside & out. Once they get the PTV's installed, flying on CO's 757's will be quite pleasant. The thing I hate most though about the 757 is its ability to cope with turbulance. Has anyone here ever experienced bad turbulance on a 757? They are bloody terrible. There's nothing more nerve recking than bad turbulance on a 757 somewhere over no mans land above the North Atlantic. I would love to eventually see a CO widebody serve the SNN-EWR route. Maybe in a couple of years time if the demand is there on this route they will upgrade to a 767.

I heard a few threads back that LH were going to pull out of Dublin altogether, but are they not currently running 3 daily flights from FRA to DUB? Also, I saw it mentioned sometime back that LH were looking at expanding from HAM and MUC to DUB as well, but nothing materialised here either...
Remember those LH CRJ's from TXL, STR and HAM on a Saturday to DUB back in mid 90's?!

Yes its un real . Oneway and well worth it. I couldnt believe it. Called up and got my fav seat 3D also!!! Good IFE and loads of leg space. I know it wont be on the new A/C but still its pretty cool. I actually like the old J class seats. Im really glad i booked it as the planes quite full now and if I were to book it today it would be €826 oneway!!!

The unions will not get what they want by going on strike and I dont think DM would be very happy after they staged that strike a few weeks ago. Staff should realise that whenever they are unhappy about something they cant run to their union and go on strike and then expect their job to be there when they decide to go back. DM should also put more effort into talking with staff and unions and not just when theres a problem.

We can look forward to new A330s with a better product and we can say goodbye to some of older A333s in 2009 but I still think Aer Lingus really should update the A332s, they have no real excuse not to. I think EI need to work on the catering, more choice and better quality on all flights long-haul flights not just flights out of Ireland but flights on the way back too.

Nothing new there, Aviajet is not the most reliable airline, I used to handle them when I worked in the airport. they once dropped a 747 in DUB with 25 minutes notice to the handlers. Other times flights where suppose to be positioning in and end up coming in full and often the handlers know flights are due in but times/aircraft/loads seem to be unimportant to aviajet.
