Dia dhaoibh a chairde agus failte ar bhoird ...

Morning folks! Wakey wakey, rise and shine! It's time to fly!

This week will see a new leadership take over at home and it will be interesting to see who takes over the transport portfolio. Personally, I'd love Mary Harney to take it, but I'm sure she'll stick with Health (or as the new Taoiseach used to call it, "Angola"!) ... It's ironic that anyone wishing to protect their own health should stay well away from that portfolio. Anyway, let's hope we have someone in Transport with vision and get up and go. (For most of those we've had recently, their get up and go had got up and gone).

Terminal 2 is now well under construction and it looks like the DAA has got its act together; the new airport city project is very exciting; still no word on the new runway plan, but let's hope they can keep to the planned schedule - whatever that is. We still await news of success on the eastern front (all quiet?), but since any service wouldn't start before the Winter season (at the very earliest), it's far too early to expect news.

AF has loaned Cityjet €180m to complete the purchase of VLM, so it will be interesting to see what shape this takes; it's a rather unwieldy - and ageing fleet; I don't see the RJ85s being replaced for a while, but the F50s will need to be. With the price of fuel, 50 seat jets are pretty much out the window, but I'm thinking a fleet of Embraer 170/190s might be the most likely, the former (170) being ideal for the LCY route.

All yours ...

Work begins on Ryanair hangar


Work has begun on an £11m hangar and flight simulator at Stansted Airport for budget airline Ryanair.

The facility being built by Kier Eastern will be capable of housing up to five Boeing 737 aircraft at a time.

As well as aircraft maintenance, the hangar will house three storeys of workshops, offices and crew training facilities, including two simulators.


Euroceltic - remember them?

http://www.sbpost.ie/post/pages/p/st...D-qqqm=news-qqqid=32613-qqqx=1.asp

Noel Hanley, the businessman who was behind the failed Euroceltic airline, has put up a reward of one million South African rand (€170,000) for the recapture of a Frenchman who allegedly swindled him out of stg£1 million.

Hanley was put in touch with LaCote in 2003,when the businessman’s Waterford-based Euroceltic Airways tried to buy three Fokker aircraft from Aer Lingus, for leasing in South Africa. LaCote, posing as financier ‘Roger Wilcox’, offered to lend Hanley the stg£1.5 million he needed for the deal, on condition that Hanley paid an upfront surety of stg£1 million.

new transport minister ?

http://www.sbpost.ie/post/pages/p/st...S-qqqs=news-qqqid=32593-qqqx=1.asp

There has been a flurry of speculation in recent days surrounding Noel Dempsey. Despite his proclivity for finding himself in political trouble - last year’s debacle over Aer Lingus’s departure from Shannon was the most recent - he is an old hand whose familiarity with Cowen goes back to the days of Albert Reynolds, and even before.

Eh, Kaitak, the F50 is a prop! AFAIK VLM were looking at replacing them at some stage but they did not feel any great urgency. In fact they completely refurbed them lately. I'd say something like the Q300/Q400 would be the ideal replacement for the 328s and the F50's with the E series, as you said, replacing the RJ's. I dont think this will happen for quite some time though. The high yields and price insensitive customer from LCY probably insulate WX from a lot of the pain of higher fuel costs.

The concession for the airside one will be available in September 2008 and the one landside will be available in January 2009. The overall concession will last 5 years. I agree, Easons airside is only an excuse for a bookshop. The bar should be open in the next week or two.

They would have had a storage hangar, but nothing as big as this.

Hughes and Hughes is much better. Easons seem to have lost the lead in many towns not just airports. H&H's have a much better selection of things IMHO. I would love to see Boots at DUB and SNN. Just for those last minute things that you need. Are there still restrictions on who can apply for retail space at DUB ??

I think either this coming Friday or the following one.
Anyone have any idea how long it would take to fly TSL-DUB in one of the ATR72's (I'm not a fan of props). Only flew one once with Iberia Regional Air Nostrum (an ATR as well, I think, can't remember which type) and the flight from MAD to TLS was 1 hous 45 minute compared to the usual 50 minutes to 1 hour on the CRJ 200's and 900's or and EZY A319. Just asking as a neighbour is quite high up in ATR here in Toulouse, and came around the other day to say if I even want a free flight to DUB he can get me on one of the Aer Arann delivery flights (it was he who told me the next one would probably be the end of this coming week or the following). He also mentioned there should be a delievry flight to Aer Arann every month for the forseeable future (have they so many on order?). It would be great get on a delivery flight, however not sure I fancy so long on a turbo-prop...

I think that for legal reasons, it would not be possible to get on a delivery flight, unless you were an airline (or manufacturer) employee. For one thing, there are insurance issues, because the actual contract to acquire the aircraft may not be done until the aircraft is actually in the air; I saw a JPV video on the delivery flight of an SA A346 a while back and even though the aircraft was flying TLS-JNB, it had to fly north first, into UK airspace, as the aircraft was being financed by a UK based back.

It's certainly something I would love to do; a friend of mine flew on an FR 738 from Boeing Field to Dublin about a year ago, although he had a good excuse for being on board: he was the FO.

As for TLS-DUB, I'd imagine it would take about 2h on a '72.

Just booked myself and the family (3 of us) on a flight home for this August flying LHR-ORK-LHR. The fare was quite high on the dates we wanted to travel at £292 including taxes, charges and 2 bags but our other option, Ryanair was equally expensive.

I'll probably be flying to BFS sometime in June/July but not sure yet.

I'm flying home next weekend and I had hoped to fly back to JER on the Sunday evening (Friday is Liberation Day in Jersey - they had to wait an extra day, to May 9th, '45), but not a chance, so I'm having to fly to MAN, at 6.30 on Sunday morning - eek. Some of the fares from LGW and MAN to JER were ridiculous ... £180, one way!

Just looking at the photos on the front page ... nearly sure this was the aircraft I flew on back in '98, when I flew to America, LHR-MIA with BA ... and even surer that there was more of it then!
