Why do they want to replace their A330's already. Aren't they less than 10 years old ?
|Quoting LH477 (Reply 5):|
Wouldn't switching to 787 reduce their capacity?
|Quoting Shamrock350 (Reply 8):|
The A350 seems a better aircraft for Aer Lingus, on grounded Ireland they were talking about the both aircraft and which suited Aer Lingus more and the A350 came out best most of the time.

What are EI's loads on all US flights, JFK, LAX...??
|Quoting GARPD (Reply 3):|
I think anything that suggests EI are interested in the 787/777 duo is purely tactical.
|Quoting Kaitak (Thread starter):|
The latest rumour surrounds 11 787s, for delivery from 2008 - which would presumably make them -800s,
|Quoting Dalecary (Reply 15):|
This sounds very plausible to me and all whispers I have heard concur that EI has always favoured the 787 over any of the many 350 iterations.
|Quoting Cityjet (Reply 18):|
any restrictions at Dub they have to consider i.e. length of runway, when they consider A versus B for new routes ?

Given that there are only about four weeks of summer in Ireland and their tourist season is a few months,
|Quoting EI321 (Reply 29):|
New roumer that instead of taking interm 777s before 787s arrive (if they do), EI are interested in 3 Air Transat 330s.
|Quoting Danny (Reply 30):|
Is there any credible source for this or it's just another Boeing boys wishful thinking thread?
On the other hand it will be really interesting to see how Boeing delivers all those 787 in 2008 as almost every airline that ordered it claims they will get it in 2008.
|Quoting Btriple7 (Reply 31):|
Would they lease those planes from Air Transat?
|Quoting EI321 (Reply 32):|
What engines to Air Transats 330s have?
|Quoting Shamrock350 (Reply 34):|
It will never happen but it would be great after all this speculation that they announce an order for both the A350 and 787!!!
|Quoting EI321 (Reply 37):|
Theres not a chance of them getting both 350 and 787. Whatever happens, EI are definitly going to be getting either 777s or 330s soon (ie within the next year).
