Clearly ‘massive’ meant more than just the 8 on order & the point of this non serious chat was to discuss where those LRs could fly to. Not everyone has a great knowledge of Eastern us airports & don’t see point of this? It’s an aviation discussion forum yeah?Jump to post
Coming a little late to the party but I thought I would chime in about a few things that I feel like people are forgetting. First, on MSP-DUB, just to echo what others have said, those are two quite powerful economies they will do fine. Same with YUL-DUB. on Delta's response, I could see them addin...Jump to post
So let’s say EI is the number one airline across the Atlantic, taking into account US preclearance & connections eastward play a big part too. With a massive fleet of A321LRs amongst others which airports across Canada & USA would be on the departure boards? Being unrealistic we can use our ...Jump to post
The AC YYZ-DUB route is so unreliable it may as well be Rouge operating it! Then again the Rouge YVR flights have had some problems too, only the YUL MAX flight seems to operate fairly reliably.Jump to post
Bigger and newer - airline tests the waters for Dublin Corporate passengers travelling from Istanbul to Ireland last week could have been forgiven for doing a double-take in the business cabin. While regular travellers are used to Turkish Airlines' workhorses on the Dublin route - the Boeing 737-80...Jump to post
Somehow I don’t see them flying to Europe. There is too much competition. But who’s to say they won’t make others crack & give up the ghost? Somehow I don’t see them giving the BA/AA JV, LH Group, DL/KLM and the likes the run for their money. But what about Norwegian & Primera? The number o...Jump to post
IAG will have a truly impressive timetable between DUB and LON. Impressive, but efficient and/or necessary?. Not different than BA and EI on DUB-LHR and IAG seems to be happy with that. Now IAG will have a monopoly on LHR/LCY-DUB which is a 2.2m pax p.a. market. Better than having to waste resource...Jump to post
EI business class is significantly better than BA and the transatlantic fares ex LCY currently with Cityjet are much better value than BA, Really can't see BA01 surviving much longer IAG doesnt care , it wants competition between its carriers A fully fledged franchsie with Cityjet could reopen Wars...Jump to post
[threeid]u[/threeid] Nice to see Alitalia back in Dublin again, even if only for the day. The air to air shots of the arrival complimented the Alitalia brand and provided excellent coverage of the arrival and landing. They’re here every few weeks really, their fleet is EI registered and leased, main...Jump to post
Nice to see Alitalia back in Dublin again, even if only for the day. The air to air shots of the arrival complimented the Alitalia brand and provided excellent coverage of the arrival and landing. Could Alitalia ever return to Dublin? They have some (albeit a small) degree of expansion going on - f...Jump to post
HK’ers who live in high rise apartments (hello from the 38th floor) love what they cant get here - open space. Hope they like endless windy roads and pissing rain as well... heh heh. On that subject, was not impressed with those US craft beers I tried. Universally over-hopped tang does not a great ...Jump to post

One of the latest editions of Airliner World had an article on WX, the ACMI business is clearly a route (pardon the pun) Cityjet see as the way forward with very little flying any routes for themselves. Only DUB-LCY was mentioned as a WX route that'll remain for the foreseeable future.Jump to post

I notice the Ryanair 737-700 has been sitting on a remote ramp in DUB today. It it being used for charters or training? I recall hearing that they planned to use it for sport team charters in an all - business layout during the football season and for other purposes during the summer, possible inst...Jump to post
I was surprised to see Aer Lingus Regional and Flybe both deciding to drop this as I thought that it should have been a reasonably well-performing route and also (for EIR) a good feed into EI's transatlantic hub. I am even more surprised therefore to see Flybe take this on again and, as I understan...Jump to post

They should give DUB try, EI have held a monopoly for what seems like forever! (FR to VIE east AKA BTS doesn't count!)Jump to post

On a slightly related note, does anyone know if the 'rumour' that GO were close to becoming an Airbus operator was true? I remember reading in one of those aviation magazines that they were close to ordering some A32x not long before the EasyJet merger.Jump to post

Wizz Air boss: We will fly from Dublin but won't pick 'dogfight' with Ryanair Ryanair rival Wizz Air will eventually enter the Dublin market, but doesn't plan to engage in a frontal assault on the Irish airline just yet, according to founder and ceo Jozsef Varadi.

There were rumblings about CVG going after LHR service, maybe this will help that happen. Seems like it could be a decent route for a 752. I know the hub is a shadow of its former self but if they can make PDX work with almost no connections on either end, CVG should be doable. Highly doubt it'll b...Jump to post
Nice one Mick, more free publicity, it's been a while.Jump to post
I still see turboprops into LHR occasionally but it's very rare. I work in Windsor with a good view of the approach from my desk and saw what I think was a Dash-8 heading in to land just last week. I'm guessing perhaps they're equipment substitutions for smaller jets? Or do any visit LHR for mainte...Jump to post
