I thought it would be appropriate to continue the meet planning in this thread instead of here
As some of you may know, Aer Lingus are selling off a positioning flight CWL-DUB very cheaply, and on the A330-200. Most of the following a.nutters have managed to grab C class seats for cheaper than I have my Y class seat!
EI2283. Saturday, March 21st. CWL-DUB, A332. Departing: 1245 Arriving: 1345
I can't believe I missed out on this in the other thread. I'd so do this. The problem is, getting to CWL from a London area airport, as I would be flying in from one of the Delta hubs. Obviously I would return to the U.S. via DUB.

Yep get a FGW train from Paddington to Bristol. From there it's just a hop to Cardiff
There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

What a cool idea. Count me in ! I will make a whole trip around it and try to combine it with visiting Concorde in Bristol and flights with Skybus and Air South West. We should decide if we hang out further in Dublin that afternoon or so? I will be at seat 3H

Quoting Nighthawk (Reply 10): Jordan, you do realise that EI send the A330 to Edinburgh for the matches too, the weekend before? Its currently showing as £39.70 (inc taxes) for the midday flight (A330-200).
I didn't realise that
but seeing as Trentles paid for my CWL-DUB hop and EDI-LHR is only £30, I'll do that instead and use a new airport too

Quoting Nighthawk (Reply 7): I doubt this is the first. For iceland we all met in LGW beforehand and took the same flight, also I believe in madrid they all organised to fly an A340 to/from one of the spanish isles?
Indeed firstly out of those there was the IB A340 where we all bizarrely went to Las Palmas for a day from Madrid, crazy fun- few years back now? Then there was the BA 737 that was taken over by A.netters in all cabins to Iceland and the Captain made an announcement to cheers all around
Have fun guys!
Despite the name I am a Boeing man through and through!
Yeah its something to do with the 6 Nations I believe..
I'm looking at doing this but CWL is a bit difficult to get to from where I live... BUT... I'm thinking of flying MAN-EDI-CWL with FlyBe first to actually get to CWL then the EI flight then possibly stay in DUB for a night then fly back to LPL with FR.. Will confirm in the next few days if I can get the days off work..

Nope - 2G, 3DG and 4DGH are still showing as available on the EI web site.
I'm staying overnight on Friday night at the Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Airport. The rooms are only £63 - apparently one side of the hotel has an "airport view" and the other is a view over the water.
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Quoting ClassicLover (Reply 19): fly EI to London on the Friday, Tube to Paddington, train to Cardiff
You could take the Railair coach to Reading from LHR and catch the train there, saves the hassle of the tube into London and the train might be a bit cheaper too (although not sure about that as I don't use trains - unlike FGW125 aka MYT332)
Sounds like a good meet though, shame I can't commit to anything that far ahead.
