Anyone know whats the craic with their flights to Dublin?

It seems that they have put their summer time-table to Ireland in place for the whole year. What 767 will they be operating to DUB? It's usually the -400 for the summer months but their website only shows 767 and not the 764. Continental are using the 757 for their direct flights to shannon.

Do they ever use the 777 on it's Irish routes? Or would they plan to during the very high season?

CO's distinction between their variants is as follows:

764: 35J/200Y 767-400 Internationally configured
767: 20J/233Y 767-400 Hawaii configured
762: 25J/149Y 767-200

If you see a 767 in the schedule, its a 764-Hawaii.

Thats great!!

Im lookin forward to a year round 767-400 in Dublin. Now I will really enjoy a flight to newark on this lovely plane. I wouldn't be too keen on a long-haul 757. I would feel slightly cramped. Does the 767-Hawaii have a god IFE with P-TV's like their other 764?

CO is not planning to keep the flight seperated for the whole year.

I believe the flight combine again around the end of OCT back to the 757.

No CO are operating this summer service all year now.

Its on their website when you try to book flights and on Sunday it was in an Irish newspaper that they are to increase capacity to Ireland by 60%.

Continental are not keeping this flight all year round, only till Jan 4th 2005, then it goes back to EWR-DUN/SNN as flight 25. EWR - SNN - 752, EWR - DUB 764, after 30th Oct 04, the 764 will be down graded to a 752.

I flew EWR-DUB last October and Shannon flight was loading at the adjacent gate in Newark. Both planes were almost completely full. I asked the agent and she said the Shannon flight does very well and Shannon is becoming its own not-all-tourist market quite distinct from Dublin.

So, it sounds as if the folks in Shannon don't have to worry about Dublin stealing all their flights any longer.

Continental operates a single 757 service from EWR to DUB, then to SNN, and back to EWR during the winter travel season. In summertime, nonstop 767-400 service is offered to Dublin. The Shannon route continues to be operated, independently, with a 757.

Continental has not flown the 777 to Ireland on a regular basis. Perhaps an equipment sub, or a capacity increase, but not a regular.

Correction: Continental's "Pacific" 767-400s are configured 20J/236Y not 20/233. Also when u see a "767" in the schedule that means a 767400 "Pacific" version. You know your on a 767200 when you see "762" in the schedule.
