Who says these airlines "don't want jet bridges". Air Moldova use the 300 gates so clearly want jet bridges. The Blue Air 01:30 to Bacau also use the 300 gates as does the occasional TUI charter flight. I'm sure Croatia Airlines, TAP, BA, Iberia, Icelandair, Luxair, SAS, Air Transat and W...Jump to post
Apart from West Jet 787 (300 gates not full at scheduled time) and the odd Air Canada there is no scheduled wide bodies from 100 gates so not sure there is a case for adding an air bridge. 100 gates can handle wide bodies however it was designed as narrow body pier up to Code C aircraft. Maybe I ha...Jump to post

Two small observations from the last few days in DUB. On Monday afternoon there must have been some problem at the Terminal 1 departure gates, queue snaked half way back down the terminal towards the FR check in area. For the time of day to have that many going through security there has to be a pro...Jump to post

The Ethiopian service looks really great - hopefully they can make it work long-term. Used the T2 DAA lounge last week, it's terrible. The space has no sense of welcome, its tall and makes no use of the apron views. the furniture is drab and uncomfortable, the space looks tired and in need of both ...Jump to post

Flew on the new 5th Freedom DUB-MAD with ET. Aircraft was changed to a 77L due to being full of Liverpool fans on the inbound. Have to say it was an excellent flight and highly recommend it to fellow Anetters. I know a few are booked already and sure they will enjoy it. Im certainly going to do it ...Jump to post
Was 28 operating with a displaced threshold last night? I was on the apron at about 7.30-8 and noticed a number of aircraft, including the EK 777, landing quite long. Any idea of why this might have been? Also, I see an AC 788 on the ground - which flight is this operating? Its operating for the AC...Jump to post
Did quite a few horse charters when I flew boxes for money. A couple of our regular 757s had their rear pax and service doors reactivated, and removable slides were installed. A pallet with 18 seats was placed in the last position, and a box carrying supplemental oxygen was also loaded. We used a s...Jump to post
Godolphin, one of the racing worlds biggest owners/breeders have 2 aircraft operating equine flights for them. A 737 operated by West Atlantic on their behalf & a 747 by the Dubai Air Wing. Coincidentally Godolphins rivals Coolmore charted the 747 to fly their horses out to Dubai for World Cup n...Jump to post
These guys would be my perfect idea of the airline to get flights from WAT back up & running again to the UK especially when the ATRs arrive. New modern aircraft to LTN, BHX & MAN possibly EDI & GLA. They'd be a much better option than the runway extension & thoughts of European flig...Jump to post
Has Ryanair, or any other credible airline signalled they will launch routes from Waterford if the runway is extended? Surely EI regional would have made a route work by now if there was money in it? If Stobart had left the flight run to LTN instead of moving to their own airport there’d still be f...Jump to post

Could someone please post a link to the other website with good info about the LH (& other German airlines fleet) other than the link early in the thread. I’m almost certain there was two similar sites, tried google but it only gave me the site already posted.Jump to post

my real question, is why would the airport management not consider reducing slots from the existing LCC's in order to gain a valuable connection to a network/long haul carrier like BA @ London? Would that not be desirable for their local clientele? So discriminate against the LCCs purely because th...Jump to post
Just in answer to a previous comment regarding LCY and LTN as destinations for EK. From a technical and performance perspective, there is no way that LCY is even remotely compatible or capable to cope with a 777 let alone an A380. With respect to LTN, the 777-200 could in theory operate there, alth...Jump to post

Two rare 747 jumbo jets spotted at Dublin Airport As rare as hen's teeth!

Hi all, landing in Turin a couple days ago, I noticed a plane of a company I didn't know, FlyValan.
