Which A330 For EI133?

Sun Jul 17, 2005 2:47 am

Which A330 usually does the EI133 DUB/SNN? Is it the -200 or -300 or a combination of the two?

Hi Trident,

EI133 is almost always an A330-300, which does mean no PTV's.

Of course you may be lucky should should scheduling needs or tech probs result in an aircraft swap, but it is unlikely.

It's a short hop from SNN - BOS anyway, and you will also need to leave the aircraft at SNN to clear US immigration (only direct flights clear at DUB) but it does save you heaps of time when you get to BOS.

Enjoy the flight!

Hello, sorry I don't mean to hijack the thread, but do you mean that one clears US immigration in Ireland on flights to the USA? So EI arrives at the domestic terminal at BOS?

Hi, yes the first part is correct, but you do arrive at the international terminal at BOS. There is a separate channel for Irish pax which bypasses the passport control area. Quite handy indeed!

There are some flights (charters sometimes, or transit flights from carriers that dont fly here regularly) that dont use this facility, but all Aer Lingus, Delta, Continental, US Airways and American Airlines flights do.

Yes, the EI133 is mostly a -300, especially at this time of year when demand is very high for BOS. The last time I did this flight it was on EI-ORD.
