Does Aer Lingus Fly The A330 To LHR?

Hi,

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)?

Any info etc. welcome.

Many thanks,

Pierre.

Your right, EI158 was operated by an A330 today. Reg was EI-DUZ.

EI162 DUB-LHR was cancelled today so maybe they sent in an A330 to fly those passengers too.

It's very rarely EI send A330's to LHR!

Hi Pierre,

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.

Kevin.

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...  Wink

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...

Here is a photo of EI-DUZ arriving into London earlier today:

It's always good seeing widebodies from European airlines at Heathrow.

Hi,

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(!)

Many thanks,

Pierre.

Saw it too, while waiting to take off to DUS. Glad to see that there were other a.netters at LHR. But that is hardly surprising, I guess.  Smile


Where have all the tri-jets gone...

Delightful! I find getting the 124/125 helps with the entertainment choice, as well as being at civilized departure times.

Me too - looked up from the kitchen window by chance and got quite a surprise! Same day that Pulkovo sent in a Tu.154, and that is not so common at LHR anymore.

You just never know at Heathrow, even on the quietest day, something odd is likely to show up...  Smile
