Aer Lingus And Belfast

Sun Sep 15, 2002 8:59 pm


On this web site there is a photo of an Aer Lingus 737 departing from Belfast, this was taken in 2001. It states that this was the last Aer Lingus service from Belfast. My question is..... I thought that Aer Lingus operated a
A330 service from JFK-SNN-BFS and the same aircraft operated all the sectors. What was this 737 doing in Belfast?????

The 333 service from Belfast was shortlived.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

EI used to do the BFS-SNN-JFK route a few ties a week. The other days it just did SNN-JFK. The route had been operated by a 333 and one summer with a M11. Sicne discontinued after 9/11/01. If there is a photo of a 737 it is highly likely that was a charter flight and not a feeder flight to SNN.
