Curious...do the B78Xs have first class? If so, they could supplement or replace the older B772s. I don’t think anything could be more perfect to replace the 772s Just wondering, would the 787-10 be able to do LHR-EZE in lieu of the 777-200ER BA has been using for several years? AFAIK it's BA´s lon...Jump to post
Coronavirus: Ryanair plots July return with 40% of flights and masks required Ryanair plans to restore 40% of its flight schedule from July, with all crew and passengers required to wear face masks and pass temperature checks. The budget airline said it hopes to have nearly 1,000 flights per day, w...Jump to post
I've seen an alleged proposal of salaries (it's doing the rounds on social media) Supervisor salary £21500 Maincrew £13500 - no bonus - and did not mention ehr. Various shortening of some trips and removal of almost all European nightstops (much like Aer Lingus) I am wondering what kind of working ...Jump to post
Lovely read! With the lack of flying going on, I hope we get more of these!Jump to post
One Mile at a Time travel blog is reporting that EI have stopped selling Business Class on the JFK flights. The cabin is being used by a second full crew - thereby avoiding any layover in New York! Novel solution! Years ago EI investigated the possibility of cabin crew doing return trips to NYC wit...Jump to post

..... As per article above : ''The front section of the plane will be sectioned off for the staff to rest. A spare pilot will be on board for all 11 hour flights. No cabin crew workers are expected to travel.'' I also heard someone from engineering will be onboard in case of any tech issues. Rather...Jump to post
Only recent airlines I can think of were Jetmagic, Eirjet & Skynet. EUjet also but Manston was their main airport. I also remember flying on eirjet in summer '05 I think, from ORK-FAO on a 320. I don't believe they were around for very long either The current world of consolidation and big play...Jump to post
I bet they’re going really really cheap ,,, they’d be stupid not to take a look and kick the tires , even they were previously hoping to go all A330-300 Best decision ever by EI to stick withA330,,, so much availability everywhere It's definitely a buyers market at the moment for widebodies. Those ...Jump to post

I really enjoyed your report, the layout of the video is fantiastic.
You’ve paid the cheapest fare, you can’t expect a 5 star service and mountains of leg room.
Rumors on another thread that Juneyao Airlines are interested in a Shanghai route via Helsinki twice weekly Juneyao are quite a good airline with a solid service offering for a Chinese airline.

Airlines are business, if they can make money out of charging for checked baggage why wouldn’t they? Checking in baggage costs the airlines money any, screening, baggage handling staff etc.Jump to post
T5 has separate gates for domestic arrivals. 1-8 I believe can handle these, with 7/8 able to handle both. Passengers take a route that directs them to a separate baggage hall which by passes immigrations and customs.Jump to post
I took this morning's TK1975 back to Dublin, 100% full. It was stupidly swapped last minute from a higher capacity 737-900ER to a 737-800. As a result, my family lost the seats we were assigned to. We were put in separate seats but we swapped seats with other people so we could sit together. Also, ...Jump to post
4 seem fine? You definitely dont work in the area. A flight of 7/8h envolves a minimum break of 1h30 . With 16 business class pax up the front plus flight deck to deal with, you think one crew is enough? And if a second one helps up the front (perhaps you not aware of the aer lingus business class ...Jump to post
I flew with EI/WX yesterday from DUB-LCY. An hour delayed due to last minute aircraft change but this wasn’t communicated until well after it became obvious we were not leaving on time. Boarding was so slow, one EI agent who appeared to be gate checking most wheelie bags. Aircraft was in CityJet liv...Jump to post
With the grounding of the 737 MAX I was wondering what AC would use for their DUB-YUK flights this summer and it seems an A330 is scheduled. Was this announced before or is it just temporary? So with YVR also switching to mainline AC it may be possible to see 3 Air Canada A330s on the ground in Dubl...Jump to post
I’m from St. Margaret’s myself and am in a St Margaret’s residents Facebook group, it’s full of people who have nothing better to do with their time than male noise and complain about a runway.

BKK is a low yielding route that is always busy, so they are unfortunately able to get away with it! As for not investing in World Traveller and World Traveller Plus, I think this is a little unfair, the hard product in the newer cabins is as good as any other airline, appreciate Club and First may ...Jump to post
Unfortunately not, BKK will be operated by a non refurbished 3 Class 777 with a very old entertainment system. G-YMMA/B/E/T/B/U/F at least are still in this situation, my advice is to make sure you have a fully charged iPad stocked up with plenty to keep you entertained!Jump to post
That schedule would mean an A321 would be away from back for 26 hours, a return sector to Tel Aviv in this time frame isn’t good use of the aircraft. Most European airlines have 2 flights to TLV to counter his but I’m not sure the demand from Ireland could justify this?Jump to post
Nice report, how did you get to MAA in the end?Jump to post
I’ve seen an internal email from Norwegian to staff confirming the closure of their Dublin flight and cabin crew base, anyone know how many crew they had in Dublin. The email also mentioned that for the first part of summer this year they had 6 based aircraft, I had no idea it was so many?Jump to post
