Overnighting Crews At Shannon

Thu Apr 03, 2003 7:37 am

Does anyone know if the Delta and Continental flight crews that fly the Ireland routes overnight in Shannon or Dublin? or both? do they overnight at the first stop?

Thanks! Smile

I am not 100% sure, but I think that they layover in Limmerick ( a town outside of Shannon) We layover in Limmerick with World Airways. I think i have seen DL crews out and about in Limmerick. Hope this helps some!  Smile

I'm surprised you go all the way (well, 30 minutes) to Limmerick City when there are perfectly good (read: sleazy hotels they like to stick crew in) right near the Shannon airport.

You have to love Ireland, though.

Dromoland Castle.

World Airways puts their crews up in dives--at least in Osan.

TT737FO,

I would acutally beg to differ. Name ONE place that we stay that is a "dive." Our hotel might not be the greatest in Osan (I am here right now) But the staff here treats us WONFERFULLY and we have a great lounge, free internet, VCRs in our rooms with a movie library of about 100 movies to choose from. Our hotel in Osan is as nice as they come. Keep in mind. ITS OSAN. Other than here, you are serisouly mistaken. If you consider Inter-Continental's "dives" then i seriously need to come around to YOUR hotels on your layovers. We stay in some AWESOME hotels, so I am curious as to where you came up with your little "dive" statement?

Always,
