Also, if it was out over Dublin bay and on base of the runway then the pressurisation issue would likely no longer be urgent as it would be below the (8000ft?) altitude at which the cabin requires pressurisation? I notice the 757 is still in Dublin today so presumably the crew timed out or it requir...Jump to post

Delighted to see El Al finally arrive in Dublin. I used to wonder if their enhanced security requirements (each passenger is interviewed at check in) was a factor in them not flying to Dublin. Tel Aviv is probably the longest short haul route from Dublin at over 5 hours? Tel Aviv has the largest tec...Jump to post
Bit of a long shot but I'm flying New York to Vancouver the second week of September, does anyone know which route combinations and flight times I could get on an MD90 or 87 via Atlanta?
It's approaching the time of year when the new route announcements begin for next year. Anyone care to make some predictions? I wouldn't be surprised to see Norweigan return to transatlantic out of Dublin next summer, assuming the 737 max is back in service (and assuming the airline survives another...Jump to post
Looks like Dublin - Beijing will be back next year. Along with Air China being the other potential carrier for a Beijing route, I wonder would China Southern look at a Shanghai route in the coming years.

Is it just me or has the AA Dallas-Dublin flight in particular been subject to a lot of long delays on arrival due to lack of available stands all Summer. I've noticed it sitting remotely for up to an hour on several occasions that I've been in the airport. Its all grand though cause the DAA CEO ins...Jump to post
Also, on the topic of the Aran Islands, is there any news on what will happen to the flights at the end of September? Thanks. Just a thought of mine, could the Eviation Alice aircraft help solve the situation? A worthy investment that will help the environment and the running costs of an Island hop...Jump to post
Irish airlines vs DAA: Battle lines drawn over price of progress at Dublin Airport

With the recent merger of Cityjet and Air Nostrum, I suspect that there will be changes afoot; at the very least, WX will be gunning for some of Stobart's feeder service (the current ATR ops). Those Avros will need serious consideration for a replacent soon since the SSJ operation fell through. Air...Jump to post

Surprised at the general lack of interest in rhe arrival of the A321Neo! Are we avi- maxed out?? I don't think maxed out, just waiting for more photos or information about the cabin to be released. We know business will be similar to the 757, save an extra row. Sounds like Economy has had a signifi...Jump to post
I notice that the fake birds of prey have been removed from the rods that they were attached to at DUB, is this related to the bird strike that happened at the weekend? Speaking of birds, I think adding an additional bin to the spotting areas and actually emptying the bins regularly might be appropr...Jump to post

Delta's website showing #177 diverted to JFK, before it even departed, and then continuing on to ATL. Anybody know what's up? DL seems to be having a few tech issues recently.

Adding a few piers to the 100s stands that are closest to terminal 1 would definitely help. They really need to get more pier space built though, I think a cut and cover tunnel with travellators to a remote pier parrallel to the new runway would be very possible from an engineering point of view (an...Jump to post
Sorry yes I meant the 100 gates (pier D). I assumed it's because the 300 gates are already full of long haul widebodies in the late morning but I dont see why they couldn't put the A340 on one of the 100 gates that's closest to the terminal. I think that's what they usually do with Air Transat and I...Jump to post
24,000 passengers have used Dublin - Beijing route in first year.

That seems to be a load factor in the region of 50% to 55% ?

Are Lingus stated on Instagram recently that all aircraft including the 757s will be getting the new livery, I assume this was an error.

Hainan flights to Edinburgh and Beijing are back on sale from the 1st of September. Good news. I would like to see the Shenzhen flight continue but with the loads seen so far it may not be realistic.

A C130 Hercules is in Dublin at the moment, I assume its transporting vehicles for Nancy Pelosi's visit. Interesting about paint discrepancy on the tail on the Aer Lingus A321neo.
