Aer Lingus Or EL AL MD11?

Fri Jun 23, 2000 3:31 am

On 31st JULY 1999 I was at Dublin Airport Ireland (DUB).
I saw an MD11, it was all white with no markings, colours or titles. The registration was N278WA so it was leased from World Airways.

So my question is,
Was this MD11 operating a flight for Aer Lingus as I know they lease an MD11 from World for extra capacity in the summer monts on flights to places in USA such as New York.

Or

Was it operating a flight on behalf of Transaer Ireland? (As I know they have used a World Airways MD11 when they have needed an aircraft ASAP.) Or was it operating a flight for EL AL? (It says in my 1999 registration book that N278WA is on lease to EL AL.)
