They just bought it to replace their A330's and plan to start a hub in JFK with it.  Wink

But no, seriously. EI Does not have DC-10's anymore. It' must be a flight aware error

Geez, that's the first time that's ever happened....  Yeah sure
Seriously, it seems like flight aware is riddled with errors all the time.

The only other possibility might be a World or other charter flying under an EI flight number.

Yeah.. Thou, most times it does a good job. It seems to have more problems tracking Int'l flights.

Mhm, that could be too. Thou personally im more inclined to think its an error  Wink

Aer Lingus DC-10s? I don't think so. I remember 707s and 747s and A330s, but....

Some L-1011s did fly in EI colors, but these were wet-leases operated and flown by other carriers (ATA I believe).

EI operated a leased World Airways MD-11 (summer only I believe) between 1998 and 2001 or thereabouts.

You know. You are absolutely right... It's been one of those days... That said. It makes a DC-10 flying for EI even more unlikely  Wink

   Once in while EI will charter a Omni DC-10/World DC-10, or North American 767 when say they need an extra section OR a A330 goes tech.

I am not positive who's DC-10 they use. Both Omni and and World have them down in ATL and you will see EI numbers of there a lot. I would say World only b/c they use NAO 767s once in a while and might have a deal worked out with GAL. Plus the MD-11 they rented a few years ago from World as well have me thinking its World.

That's exactly what Omni have been doing for Monarch over the past few days. One of their A330s has been stuck in SFB since Saturday, so N810AX has been covering various flights from LGW. With a Luzair Tristar also in covering for Zoom, it was quite exciting seeing two classics together at Gatwick.

So Omni or World will operate their equipment and crew on an EI flight #?

BTW, I seem to remember reading here on a.net that EI tends to have a lot of A330 technical issues due in part to the old SNN stopover rule--the aircraft tended to build up cycles and landings more quickly than the average.

Most likely Omni running a subservice due to an A330 going tech

Correct. Sometimes EI will put two of their f/a's onboard as well.

Ein 110 is listed on a daily basis in Flightaware as a DC-10, and has been for several months. Looks like nobody has bothered to update it.

Thanks for chiming in like 4 hours after that was already said lol  Wink Plus 2 to 1 IF this a real flight right now like there have been in the past, its probably World though a deal with GAL since they us North American 767s once in a while. Plus the MD-11 that EI used from World a few years back.
