''But the commuter routes were flown by Aer Lingus a/c after EI Commuter, weren't they''
I guess it depends which ones. After the restructuring, all of EI
's internal Irish routes (except DUB
) were dropped, along with most of the thinner UK - Ireland routes, but some of the commuter branded aircraft, such as the 146s had always been used on some of the mainline flights to the continent also. Eg the 146s served DUB
which was dropped, as was DUB
- Rennes with the fokker 50, but the 146s were also used on routes like DUB
, or DUB
etc which remain.
