Just wondering does anyone know of airlines considering aircraft choice in the last that seriously considered ordering but for whatever reason didn’t order that aircraft type ? One that springs to mind is Qantas 777 which the A330 seemed to win out in the end. Anybody any others ? Any examples of ai...Jump to post
Saw a news article this morning about possible 747 order by Turkish. Just thought I'd put this out there would be nice to see.
Anybody know why Etihad from Oct 6th, have a 777 instead of the A330? Coming into high season for them or? Will be travelling with them and flight got upgraded to a 777, looking forward to it
I searched for Nov this year, €500 rtn to LA or EIs €439 one way, whats better value lol EI will have to reduce them prices

Flew to <acronym title="Southend - Rochford (SEN / EGMC), United Kingdom">SEN</acronym> yesterday on the new ATR72-600. Had never been on a prop before. Must say hugely impressed! Felt like more legeoom than airbuses. Comfortable enough seats for 1 to 1.5hr flights. Friendly crew and the smallest, e...Jump to post
Random question again, but im looking for information on rough operating costs per hour for narrowbody planes eg 737, 757 and A321 preferably. Have done some seatching but cant seem to find anything more up to date than the year 2000. Any help would be greatly appreciated for a college assignment. T...Jump to post
And heres for a follow up question, to which I dont know if anyone knows! Why didnt they select the 727 or L10-11 or any other aircraft that were available. Surely at the time of switching to airbus, huge switching costs would have been incurred as a result. It must have been an extremely good deal ...Jump to post
Hi all, I dont really post on here much, but do read here all the time. Jus quick question.

People shouldnt have to suffer in employment either tho. Theres no excuse for bad employment. I dont know whats involved in Aer Arann but i assume its serious enough to warrant a possible strike. But they should wait til after the olympics yes
Does Aer Lingus still thru check bags on the same reservation fro free eg to BA or Virgin?
Em it was a cheap fare, like €75 rtn! So i dont know why it says Business! Very wierd!!
I have a booking in August on bmi. Booked in economy, now jus says Business, anyone know why or just a glitch?
Think theres something wrong on the BA website, its €263 each way from DUB-LHR any date, cant be right!
Hi does anybody know if EI are fittin sharklet winglets on there A320s?
I highly doubt EI are looking at regional jets let alone BMI regional! Regional jets are too costly to fit into Aer Lingus' model.
Very interesting that BA are coming back, shows there is money to be made! I presume it will be A320/21? Full service to Heathrow again! Will this pose a threat to Cityjet with BA offering their Exec club?
I notice in the Metro Herald, the EI ad today, it has a team Ireland logo! With a nice shamrock! Love it!
Aer Lingus need to get into gear with their <acronym title="Tower Air (USA)">FF</acronym> progam. Set up proper relationships with airlines, other companies and a credit card (money earner). They need to redesign earning and spending miles etc. Have even the lowest fare earning some miles. This wont...Jump to post
So if <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> are painting aircraft into <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> colors, will there be <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> service onboard or?

I wonder what the pricing would be like wit <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> to <acronym title="London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL), United Kingdom">LHR</acronym> ? I cant imagine them being really overpriced, as Ireland is such a price sensitive market for airfares - hence the lack of full ...Jump to post
Hi, just had a thought today, and I don't know if anyone has an answer. But was wondering, does anyboody know why EI didnt buy, (or know if they even considered buying), say DC9s, B727's, MD80s etc? or even A340s?
I don't know the exact strategy, but 2 things i noted from the talk was 1) <acronym title="Niagara Falls - International (IAG / KIAG), USA - New York">IAG</acronym> wanted more access into emerging markets, ie South America and Asia and to a lessor extent Africa, so I wouldn't count the African rout...Jump to post

when people emigrated in the 1980's to America, Im assuming the visa situation was different, because you cnt just up and off to America, theres strict regulations, so pretty much you cant emigrate there unles you have a set up job sponsored, which would be extremely rare?!
I have just seen the 75 years of Aer Lingus video on youtube! WOW, amazing, just amazing. It shows how Aer Lingus can really pull it all together. You get so much pride to be Irish watching it! It represents Ireland is the best light possible, only 1 thing, PLEASE drop the GREAT CARE, GREAT FARE. It...Jump to post
What i kind of meant was why <acronym title="Lufthansa (Germany)">LH</acronym> went for the 748 over the 777W? Jus because so many other airlines went 777W and not 748? Im sure discounted proces helped but can't be the only reason? Also when do <acronym title="Lufthansa (Germany)">LH</acronym> plan ...Jump to post

Seems like a case of "dont't know what you have til its gone". On that note, I was thinking, the DAA are looking for new routes, have they tried new european carrriers at all?!
