Need help getting info on an aircraft. Its just niggling my mind at the moment.

Flew out of JFK last friday night. We departed at approx 1830 local,as EI104 JFK-DUB. Ahead of us in the queue (approx 6 a/c ahead) I spotted what looked like a B757 with winglets. No great surprise here, what caught my eye was that the livery was all white with a British Airways Tail. It was as if it was just acquired,either from or to BA, with the tail the only part painted. Their didn't appear to be any text on the fuselage,definitely not British Airways along the side.

Any clues as to who this belongs to? I assume BA but didn't know they had wingleted B757s.

Of course we can; we're Irish!

Anyway, yes, that 757 was Open Skies. Ironic, coming from an airline which greeted O/S with considerable reluctance!

How long was your queue? The 104 leaves at about 18.30, I think, which must be a very busy time (yes, I know, "when is it not?"). I remember leaving JFK about nineteen years ago (yes, actually the last time I flew out of JFK! - has always been EWR since!), I was on Big 'ED, the old 747 in all-Y config; we snaked right around the field, finally taking off on 13R; pushback was pretty much on time (18.50 or so), but we didn't get airborne until after eight.

I remember that flight with some affection, because the landing at SNN was my first jump seat ride!

Of course, we know JFK has always been pretty busy, but it's pretty hard, now, to avoid being in a takeoff queue at DUB either, although as yet, I don't think I've ever been in an acft held in a pattern waiting to land at DUB.

They were pushing for a 2nd daily flight but this will now not happen for the foreseeable future.

LUPOR1D and/or OA260, do you have any publicly available citations/references for this ? It is hearsay/rumour or concrete info known only inside the travel industry ? I ask as Zurich is, given my business, a city I'd dearly love to be able to commute to from Dublin - and right now it's not, as there are no early-Monday-late-Friday non-stop flights. I find it intensely annoying that DUB is connected to the likes of FDH, FAO or CCF to arrive in time for work but not to ZRH, FCO, VIE or even MAD. There should be 5am departures to all the major business centres on the mainland and 6am departures to all major business centres in Britain.

Quoting Pilot21 (Reply 212):
BA have just confirmed that the A318 LCY-JFK routing which starts next year will stop at SNN to re-fuel on the westbound leg and pax will clear immigration while on the ground.

Ok, a few extra quid for SNN but of little contribution to Irish Aviation. Nonetheless, I welcome any extra services from Lucy and this one is the most welcome in years.
Now, given Open Skies freedoms - why won't BA sell SNN-JFK seats, with the return leg on EI ? There's nothing to stop them, right ? Had they opted for DUB as the stopover surely they'd be touting the service to us.
I wonder what kind of deal BA has done with the US's immigration folks at SNN to facilitate a late night rotation....

I suppose they could do that but since this is an all business class service, I really couldn't see the demand from SNN. There are plenty of services to NYC from SNN already so they are already entering into a crowded market with very little demand for business class seats. Selling the few seats they would be able to sell probably just wouldn't be worth it. Would be nice though to have the option of taking BA. My real hope here would be for SNN to make a good impression on BA and hopefully, in the long term, we will see BA return scheduled services to SNN - perhaps to LHR?

''beleaguered Shannon Airport ''

Shannon lands BA contract as re-fuelling point for New York

By Laura Noonan


Tuesday August 19 2008

EXECUTIVES at the beleaguered Shannon Airport finally had cause for celebration yesterday when the west of Ireland facility was named as the chosen re-fuelling stop for British Airways’ new London City to New York service.



The airport was last night tight-lipped on the financial significance of the contract, but any boost will be welcome to an airport that is believed to have lost €2.3m in the first quarter of this year.


“To have a stellar aviation brand like British Airways select Shannon as the stop-over airport for this exclusive service is a real vote of confidence in the future of Shannon Airport,” director Martin Moroney said in a statement.

Ryanair cancelling up to 450 ‘screen scraper’ tickets a day

By Niamh Hennessy
RYANAIR is cancelling up to 450 tickets a day as it continues its clamp down on flights booked via third-party websites.


The airline began cancelling flights booked on so-called screen scraper websites last week and said it expects to continue to block between 400 to 450 tickets a day this week.

Tony,
I was out playing golf with a Senior Delta pilot in the BOS region a couple of weeks back. I asked him about DL to SNN. He said that while it was discussed, it seems to have taken a back seat again. But he wouldn't rule anything out given the turmoil that we currently see.
Personally I would love to see it as it would stop EI's monopoly on the route. But I can't see it as then DL would have to use Terminal E for customs and they don't to do that. A couple of years ago DL made a push to have a customs facility in the new Terminal A but never got off the ground. Since then DL have cut back on services out of BOS.

Had my 1st last Friday - at 11.30pm (yes half eleven at night!) FR flight from Stansted, we routed North of Dublin and were stacked with 3 other aircraft, we held for about 5 minutes and then flew west before turning final for RY10. Not sure if there were a few delays due to the weather, but the arrivals hall was packed at midnight - the Hertz car hire desk had a queue 10 deep..not sure if this was a one off or a regular occurrence these days - roll on T2!!

Interesting stuff. I suppose many airlines have abandoned their expansion plans of late. This thing though about having to use Teminal E at BOS for customs clearance is something that really highlights the importance of having the full US Immigration and Customs facilities at SNN and why setting it up must be expedited in order to secure SNN's future. By the way, did ORK get mentioned during that same game of golf?

He was not really aware of any DL plans for ORK but he couldn't be sure either.

I forgot about the full customs plan in SNN. That would most definitly make SNN more attractive to airlines.

Highly unlikely. With recent cutbacks at MCO, DL dont even have a focus city in Florida any more. In addition Any Florida service would likely be low yielding filled with holiday makers - I'm not aware of any significant business links between Ireland and Florida, even to Miami

Stranded holidaymakers return home

Almost 200 Irish holidaymakers returned home safely tonight after their flight from Spain was delayed and later diverted over safety concerns.

The Budget Travel flight from Reus, in the north-east of the country, arrived in Cork at 5.30pm — 22 hours after leaving the Spanish town.

The travel company said a technical fault forced the captain to land at Charles de Gaulle in Paris four hours into the flight at around 12.35am.

Just back from Cork on EI724, a good flight but it was full of drama from the start!

Cork is usually quiet in the evenings but today it was almost empty, a Ryanair flight to DUB departed, a Bluebird cargo 737 arrived and departed, then an announcement was made for my flight, it was delayed from it's scheduled departure time of 8.20pm to 8.45pm. At about 8pm EI-CPG arrived. It was quiet for a moment and then someone from EI arrived at the desk and a huge crowd formed, I waited for a few minutes before joining the crowd, no boarding announcement was made because everyone was already there!

Once on board a few people decided to sit where they liked and one of them said "that's what other airlines do, sorry we didn't know" and the FA just replied "no worries, we always like to assign seats for everyone, you have row 16 down there on the right". I remembered a few FAs from previous flights and they all seemed top notch as usual.

The SkyCafe service started after take off, I had the Ham and Cheese panini, it was nice but not very hot and the cheese was nowhere near as nice as it had been before. Just as everyone was finishing their snacks one of the FAs asked if there was a doctor on board and could they make make themselves known to a member of crew due to a medical emergency. Lots of people looked around but nobody stood up so the FA contacted the pilot, they were talking for few minutes and then the aircraft started to slow down, you could feel the change of speed and my ears started to pop. At first I thought we might be diverting because of how soon the decent started but nothing was said from anyone and the cabin crew just ran up and down the aisle taking it in turns to care for the sick passenger.

We approached London from the south and turned over central London before lining up on Runway 27R which was being used for take offs at the time. The cabin crew welcomed us to London and then made a second announcement asking us to remain in our seats so paramedics could attend to the passenger. The pilot walked down the cabin to the sick passenger while an FA and the first officer thanked us for flying Aer Lingus.

I thought everything was handled very well, all the crew were professional, smiling and looked after everyone as best they could during the situation.
