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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
I’d like to see EI launch ORD and/or MCO from SNN with the 321LR. Maybe drop JFK as it seems crowded on the NY route at the minute. 3x weekly ORD and 3x weekly MCO with feed from UA and B6 respectively at the US side. I’d also re-time the SNN-BHX to match SNN-EDI to allow transatlantic connections a...Jump to post

Random question, does anyone know where i might be able to get a timetable of all flights that depart and arrive to and from DUB? Across all airlines.

What time is the EI press conference today? My guesses for increased SNN service would be either: - extending SNN-ACE to year-round - increasing the seasonal SNN-AGP from 3x weekly to daily - a new SNN-LPA route It would be more exciting if EI launched a city route like CDG or AMS but their SNN shor...Jump to post

Aer Lingus criticised for cancelling Shannon flights again A Fianna Fáil TD has said it could be time for Shannon Airport to penalise Aer Lingus for cancelling flights after the airline failed to operate its Shannon to New York service for the third time in a month. The key theme is that the aircra...Jump to post
I see many benefits to this, including: - IAG making use of 1 or 2 extra LHR slots (from EI) for BA expansion. - EI having a direct Business Class offering from London to the USA. The EI LHR slots are protected under the sale agreement from the government to IAG. EI's LHR slots can't be moved aroun...Jump to post
AA is surrendering most JFK transatlantic traffic to Delta. Indeed. Can anyone explain to me why PHL is AA's only year-round service from DUB, while the likes of ORD isn't? I would have thought that JFK - DUB and ORD - DUB would have been better for AA than PHL - DUB, particularly after EI launched...Jump to post
Just following on from that AA88 (PHL-SNN) delay; the return flight, AA89, just departed SNN but will be diverted to JFK with an ETA of 01:09 local.

EI does send one or two A333s to the likes of AGP or FAO during the morning downtime but all the other aircraft remain on the ground at DUB for the few hours. I guess its a good opportunity for some light maintenance and gives leeway to make up time in case of delayed transatlantic arrivals/aircraf...Jump to post
It would make sense certainly in the mornings as there will probably be some A321LRs sitting idle between the early-morning transatlantic arrival bank (05:00-05:30) to the departures (11:00-12:00). You'd neatly fit a rotation in there to LON/AMS/FRA/BRU/CDG etc. Excuse my ignorance, but why don't E...Jump to post
Yes EI seems only interested in bucket and spade and leaves the business cities to others. No Business class, lousy frequent flyer programme and less than special lounges Mind you expensive enough bucket and spade fares this year! I remember reading that EI would consider using the A321LRs on key E...Jump to post
I'm looking forward to seeing what new routes Aer Lingus announce in the next few weeks. I'd bet on LAS ( leisure market, like MCO) and DFW ( AA connections ).

Doing a search of SNN-UK flights for a relative for next weekend and all routes seem to be coming out with fares around €200-€300 return (which would be normal for the time of year and short notice I guess) with the exception of SNN-LPL at €35 return.That's some difference. Apparently the route isn'...Jump to post
Agreed the Aer Lingus use of the term "guest" is cringy and doesn't bring much to the brand. I have also finally been granted my missing Avios from 2 years ago but like that, there are a few flights missing. I've given up on it to be honest - it's not worth wasting my time on it.

[quote][/quote]The Eurowings vote is in its final stages now with SNN in second place. Voting is taking place on the EW Facebook page now: https://www.facebook.com/eurowings/
If you have a chance, vote for Shannon! The winning destination secures a new route from CGN.
Terrible week for SNN - after UA pulling ORD. my own guess is UA are not happy that Norwegian are in town. 5 years is a long time to keep a route that isn’t delivering, and that’s on the back of pulling EWR for low winter. Re SAS, I strongly doubted that would stick for long. LH is the one to watch...Jump to post

There has not been any announcement internally about SNN service other than the EWR flight going seasonal.
Chicago Midway could be an option? It's a big Southwest hub so I'd imagine costs are much lower than O'Hare. Its an "out there" option.

Oh not another I’ll fated LGW experiment!! I agree, EI are an Irish brand and though recognized in their current markets, I think their focus should be on Ireland (including NI).

UA will discontinue the daily seasonal ORD-SNN route in 2018 after 5 years of operation.

After 5 years of operation. This was the merged UA's first transatlantic 757 route from ORD. Hopefully EI or AA will jump on this in the next few years.
