Am at Heathrow today watching planes and I'm pretty sure I just saw an Aer Lingus A330 here. Was just wondering if anyone knew if Aer Lingus flies the A330 regularly to LHR. Is it from Dublin or another destination (I saw an A320 I think just 1/2hr or 1 hr later)?

Aer Lingus very rarely operate A330s into Heathrow, it's almost always a mix of A320s and A321s which are always visible at Heathrow no matter what time of day. I think the last time Aer Lingus sent an A330 was during the snow early last month, a number of their flights had been cancelled so it was brought as a replacement and to make up for some of those flights.
Edit: I wish I would have known EI-DUZ was operating, would have gone down to see it. Those passengers must have got a nice surprise when boarding, all those AVOD screens. Wonder if they were turned on for the short flight?

Probably.. they are even switched on for DUB-SNN...
You will sometimes see A330's at LHR around xmas too... a nice change from the ever present 320 and 321's.. its rare (if ever!) that there isnt an EI aircraft at LHR...

Just to say many thanks for the replies etc. Was definitely quite cool to see the A330 here today and must have been pretty cool to be a passenger to get the plane too. Felt like for a minute I was back in Dublin airport with an Aer Lingus A330 around(!)
