Also in the results is 4 A332s to go and the A318. That’s the end of LCY-SNN-JFK. Not clear if the A332s are EI, LEVEL, or a mix of both. The Paris operation had 3 A332s and EI-EWR is due to return to lessors, I think? From today’s presentation: Fleet: Aer Lingus: Grounding of 6 A320s Grounding of ...Jump to post

Ultimately, I think that the govt will need to look at providing some assistance to Aer Lingus. Can't help wondering if Italy's help to AZ is for different reasons, like "it's a Tuesday". Do the same rules apply; clearly, this pandemic is unprecedented and poses a serious threat to all ai...Jump to post

Was referring to IALPA the union. It is one of the wealthiest unions in Ireland! No one should loose their job but times are difficult for all. You’re making absolutely no sense. What are you trying to say? IALPA members in Cityjet, Stobart and Ryanair should just suck it up because times are diffi...Jump to post

How come AF22 from Paris is heading to New York, is it taking back just US citizens? It is to the SW of Ireland at the moment.... You are assuming EU airlines stop flying to the USA, this is not correct. A number of European airlines are maintaining regular operations to CDC approved US airports, a...Jump to post

The lineup at the start of summer schedule will be; 2x A321LR in SNN, 2 in DUB alongside the last B757. The 5th A321LR isn't due until April/May. It could be earmarked for Euro rotations/standby cover rather than a new route. By the end of the summer schedule all 8 A321LR should be delivered which ...Jump to post
Apparently due to the runway length in Dublin, particularly on wet days with a slight tail wind the aircraft is struggling to get enough fuel in to even make BDL, so Washington has been put back on an A330 for this winter. The website is still showing the 321 on IAD x3 weekly with the 330 x4 weekly?Jump to post
Considering the glee with which the BA pilots not only crossed the BA flight attendants’ picket line in 2010, but actively worked with BA management to destroy it, I hope they don’t expect any support from other unions. BA pilots, in many cases, worked as scab flight attendants on their days off. N...Jump to post

On leaving the hold the approach controller will give you your track miles to touch down. You manipulate your rate of descent to meet a cda profile. You need to be cognizant of potential ATC speed reductions - usually a reduction from 220 IAS to 180 IAS on turning base and then once established, 160...Jump to post
-Aer Lingus will axe its late night DUB-LHR/early morning LHR-DUB, with BA operating that service; EI is already operating the early morning BA flight from DUB (among others), will also bring an A330 onto one of the DUB-LHR routes. An irresponsible post. Aer Lingus directly employs a number of engi...Jump to post
11% payrise for EI pilots - quite a bit more than what the general staff were awarded.
