Does anyone know if the Aer Lingus lounge or indeed if any of the other lounges in Dublin are open or due to open soon I`m "in the know" regarding the DAA lounges, heard this morning we`ll have a further update on them reopening in 2/3 weeks. News I was hoping to hear this week was a date...Jump to post
Blue Air flies from Bacau to: Bergamo, Brussels BRU, Dublin, London-Luton, Rome FCO and Turin Wizz will fly from Bacau to: Bergamo, Brussels CRL, London-Luton, Rome FCO, Turin and 7 other cities Wizz don't fly to Dublin at all - probably to avoid a major fare war with Ryanair.

What routes did they operate from Southampton? Can't find info now on wiki. Going to hit small regional airports hard .

Im wondering what the impact would be on the airports that had services from flybe such as southampton, cardiff, belfast etc. I presume some of these airports could possibly close down as flybe was the main operator at many of these airports. Such a mess for everyone involved. Those airports closin...Jump to post
9H-MIP will fly to Jeddah for the Spanish supercup with Atletico de Madrid onboard. Why is the Spanish supercup held in Jeddah? To make some airlines happy? The same reason there was a big boxing match held there at the end of last year, the same reason there’s a new ‘International horse racing fes...Jump to post
I’m surprised Wizz (& even Easyjet) have never gave DUB a go. Yes they both tried other ROI airports with Ryanair running them out of there but DUB has the market compared to the ‘regional’ airports ORK, SNN & NOC, & lets be honest, Ryanair at the moment aren’t really ready for a market ...Jump to post

I think EI own their remaining 3x A321s? The 3x that left the fleet a few years ago were leased as far as I recall. Have to agree that the A220 would be a great fit for EI. It has really low CASM and is ideally sized between the ATRs and A320s for opening new routes from DUB/SNN/CRK. That would be ...Jump to post

Ryanair’s idea to charge for the toilet & for standing room only was just basic attention seeking, they knew it wasn’t going to happen but it got their name out there time after time.Jump to post
Only two Cityjet RJ85s still active.

In New York, La Guardia has a perimetre rule that only has exception for Saturdays. How about Toronto?

Liverpool went home after their win in the European Supercup in a B767 with South African registration. Don´t remember the company know. Really?

Can you blame them, they’ve been screwed by Boeing. Would love to see Southwest & Ryanair give Airbus an order & that’s purely from an enthusiasts view of seeing a change. I’ve no allegiance to either A or B.Jump to post
Supposedly the SWF-DUB and PVD-ORK flights were the only ones actually making a profit. Id be shocked if DUB-SWF was loss making, it would still be 2x daily if it wasn’t for the MAX issues. If a TATL route like that wasn’t making a profit you’d hardly double frequency so soon. It’s how the route is...Jump to post
American POV, American reply! The world is not USA-centric Maybe MAGA is working, (or maybe not), but there is a much larger world outside of the USA than inside its borders I challenge that "FBO" , while maybe common in "The States", is not common in the other 90% of the world!...Jump to post

I notice that the fake birds of prey have been removed from the rods that they were attached to at DUB, is this related to the bird strike that happened at the weekend?

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
