Hi,

Just thought I'd try to upload a few pics from a flight I took the day before yesterday from Lodon Gatwick to Dublin airport (return) with Ryanair. Unfortunately the flight was delayed a little which meant I had little time to take pics at Dublin airport but hopefully overall is not too bad.

Was quite suny when I left in the morning:

That's all the pics I could take before my camera ran out. Apologies for not having more pics of the destination but hopefully they're not too bad.

Any comments etc. welcome.

Many thanks,

Nice report of your short flight to DUB and back!

Quoting Ps76 (Thread starter):
Aer Lingus A320 (I think):

It's a 321, you can see as it has 4 full size doors with the center 2 doors quite far away from each other.
The 320 has their 2 small doors above the wings, tightly next to each other.
The 319 has only one overwing door ( except U2 )

Thanks for sharing!

That is 110% a 320, not a 321.

Nice to read these European LCC reports. Nice landscape there

Im not really a fan of the Ryanair cabin crew uniform though.

Nice report.

The weather looked great, I think we've been lucky so far this month. Nice to see so much of Aer Lingus at Gatwick and Ryanair getting the job done in their usual cheap and cheerful style.

It was the Aer Lingus aircraft at Dublin which I believe is causing the confusion. It's an A321 as you can see the four full size doors and no overwing exits even at that difficult angle. The Aer Lingus aircraft at Gatwick which is the one I think you're referring to is indeed an A320.

That was a really nice TR. I loved all the pics, it was like a virtual flight.

Don't know if you agree but LGW-DUB is the route FR are most suited to. Short and sweet and extremely good value for money.

Hi,

Just to say many thanks for the comment/encouragement. The Gatwick-Dublin route is definitely a cool route. It's short and sweet and I like both airports (both have Starbucks!). Have actually booked another flight for next week (the price was only around 20 pounds) and will hopefully manage to take some pics of the terminal at Dublin this time.

Many thanks,

Pierre.
