Re: Irish 9/19

That interior looks very tired. Still not a fan of the bright headrest covers, the colours clash with the navy seats. It almost looks like the interior of some random wet leased aircraft that has seat covers stuck on to make it appear like an EI aircraft.

Re: Irish 9/19

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...

Re: Irish 9/19

Does anyone know what the plans for the 757s are after they leave the EI fleet. I assume the oldest (RR engines) one will be parted out and the younger ones will be converted to cargo.

I think that's part of an extensive marketing tour, normal for a new aircraft's sales campaign. I'd imagine Cityjet and Stobart will be taking a look also.

Re: Irish 8/19

A350-900 MTOW take off distance at sea level is 2600 metres / 8500 ft. Dublin's runway is 8650 ft.

Perhaps it would cause issues if the crossword runway is being used (about 10 days a year?).
