BOS-DUB By BA

Wed Apr 06, 2005 3:22 am

Does anyone know anything about flight BA9163 operating BOS-DUB departing BOS at 20.45 tonight? Is it some kind of a charter? What aircraft is operating it etc?

Is it definitely a BA flight, and not a codeshare with EI?

BA dont codeshare with EI across the atlantic, only on UK-Ireland routes.
Next Flight: DUB-BOS (EI), BOS-DEN-PDX (SWA), SEA-BOS (AS)

No its operated by BA, if you go onto their website and put it into the arrivals / departures info it says its a BA flight. And it also says its operated by BA on the Dublin Airport website.

EI is short an aircraft ... EI at BOS has been dealing with irregularities all week.

I know they were discussing the other day whether BA would check-in the flight, but I think Aer Lingus will still be doing everything, it's just a BA plane/crew flown for EI.

This doesn't have anything to do with code-sharing ... EI just needs an extra plane.

It has a 'C' after the flight code. 'BA9163C' The 'C' always denotes that its a charter flight operated by British Airways. These often occur at Birmingham and Manchester!

Ah now that could be something alright. One of the JFK-DUB flights was delayed by about 10 hours today, and an ORD-DUB flight by a similar time the other day. Why are they short an aircraft?

Any BA flight number BA9xxx usually indicates that it is a special flight, be it charter, training or positioning flight. For example with the Hurricane that affected Grenada last year, BA used a special flight to bring passengers back to the US and it carried a similar flight number.

Hi everyone,

The aircraft in question operating on behalf of EI is G-YMMF ... a higher density aircraft without first class. Therefore this aircraft rarely makes appearances at BOS because BA operations 4-class aircraft.

For the fellow spotter / photographers at DUB, you can expect this plane to arrive tomorrow morning (Wednesday the 6th) around 8am!
Bonjour Chef!

They're probably flying to Rome . . .

Its because A330 EI-JFK is in hangar 6 at Dublin, was due to finish a C check last Tuesday, still there due to fuel leak problems....

I just saw this a/c, it was a BA B777 landing into DUB this morning shortly after 7.20am

It operated flight EI2138 from Boston.
