From SNN it's YYZ (AC being the operating carrier with the 7M8).

Yesterday, I dropped off a relative at T5. I parked the car and walked across the bridge to the terminal, and I noticed something that I hadn't seen before: the board at the entrance of the bridge, with the airlines list servicing T5, noted that Lufthansa LH 437 to Munich departs from T5, unlike th...

Re: Irish 9/18: Autumnal aviation

EI140 MIA-DUB diverted to YQX (Gander) last night, operated by EI-EWR. Departed for DUB seven hours later, diverted to SNN, and is now en route to DUB, will there be further cancellations? This is a bit bizarre. The official line is that the flight was diverted to YQX due to a medical emergency and...

I’d also re-time the SNN-BHX to match SNN-EDI to allow transatlantic connections a...
