Since when had Aer Lingus had DC-10's? This has to be wrong.

Even if it was operated by another airline, say Omni, wouldnt they still have to use the Omni call sign?

Thanks so much!  Confused

NO, standard procedure when doing a wet lease or ad hoc charter for another airline is to use their callsign. The exception for this is if the chartering carrier doesn't have traffic rights for the route and the operating carrier does.

Negative. They are supposed to use their callsign (in this case Omni using Aer Lingus') unless an instance arises in which the chartering carrier doesn't have the rights to operate the route and the operating airline does.


Still, not a bad looking bird..

So was this aircraft filling in for an Aer Lingus jet with scheduled passengers or was this a normal Omni charter flown to Dublin?


There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

This was a scheduled EI flight operated by Omni. Omni have aircraft based at SNN so they often operate EI flights if an Aer Lingus a/c has gone tech.

Just consider them the TAM of the northern hemisphere!

This is interesting info, and it seems throughout its recent history, it has flown an array of widebodies. Didn't they lease an L-1011 from ATA, with a shamrock on the tail? They also owned 747s in the early 70s, and went through a 767-300 phase which didn't seem to last long. Of course, there are the A330s (both sizes).

If they would only add the A340 or MD-11, they would be all set. An A310 would be pretty sharp in their scheme. Have I missed any? The IL-86 .....

Aer Lingus has operated its own B747s, A330s, B767s and has leased in for long periods at different times L1011s from ATA and Caledonian and a MD-11 from World.

It has regularly leased a wide range of 747s, A310s, B757s, DC10s and B767s from a host of US and European airlines to cover both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for periods a short as one flight to up to a week or so. All flights are operated under EIN flight numbers.

Quoting EI320 (Reply 5):

I think there was an aircraft at Shannon that went tech recently but surely that must be fixed by now.

It's funny how such a small airline had so many different aircraft over the years, it's all changed now though, all Airbus including 26 A320s (more on order) , 6 A321s, 9 A330s (6 on order) and in a few years 6 A359s. The 777 and 757 would have looked great!

EI have drafted in Astreaus before as well if an a/c has gone tech, a few weeks back there was an Astraeus 757 operating as EI111, and the remaining pax were flown from SNN to London on an Astraeus BAe146 and then onward to the US. Just goes to show how much inconvenience it causes an airline when an a/c the size of an A330 goes tech on the last minute.
