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. These are people I grew up with, obviously the DAA and relevant people must pay attention to them but to b...Jump to post
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
BA are reducing NCL, ABZ and MAN next summer, have the slots come from here?Jump to post

It wouldnt at all surprise me to see a LAS or BGI flight move to LHR, I 8magine they would do exceptionally well with the added benefit of the LHR short haul network but as mentioned slots are an issue. LAS operates from both LHR and LGW proving BA isn’t against doing it or operatin gleisure routes ...Jump to post
If my boyfriend proposed to me on a plane, I’d fire him...Jump to post
EI won’t be competing with AA, the idea of a joint venture is that the airlines share the spoils so EI starting DFW would be detrimental to this. LAS would be an interesting one, lots of Irish traffic on the route and BOB alcohol on the route would be a killer, although I think we could all be surpr...Jump to post
Let’s be honest! An airline employee posting about how he’s cheated security be it at a sporting event or anywhere else and posting it on social media is going to get you into trouble.Jump to post
It’s logical for TP to return, with the growth at DUB, they can surely make it work this time round especially with their South American network. Let’s hope Norwegian make a better go at Hamilton than Globespan did, it was always very delayed! Lucky enough to be operating in/out of DUB twice in July!Jump to post
BA were granted quite a lot of the Monarch slots at LGW and have increased frequency on a number of routes but this has been done quite quickly without them having enough of their own equipment to use hence using other airlines to cover the schedule. NEO delays haven’t helped but they begin arriving...Jump to post
The wind doesn’t even have to be that strong but coming from a certain direction it creates turbulence off the rock which makes an approach difficult.
I was diverted last week but because a rock fall had damaged some equipment related to the airport but we knew even before leaving London.
My mother and 17 friends have been stuck in Amsterdam since last Tuesday because of the snow closures and the back log of customers, they are finally flying home today and have nothing for praise for the way they have been looked after by Aer Lingus.Jump to post
As some of you will have seen Aer Lingus will operate a number of BA flights to/from Heathrow from early February onwards so we’ll get to see the shamrock at terminal 5! It does mean DUB won’t have a BA LHR nightstopper for a few weeks but it returns in March. EI will also operate some HAM flights f...Jump to post
So apparently it’s been confirmed that Menzies will enter the ground handling business at DUB and will take over BA/IB/VY from April, can anyone confirm? A relative who works on the ground at EI suggests this could be the beginning of IAG outsourcing ground handling for all IAG airlines at DUB inclu...Jump to post
