Re: Irish 6/20: The behemoth reawakens ...

Have we become so entrenched that we require the Government to make every decision? If Kl, AF, LH, LX and others are flying to Ireland there must be some passengers. If EI don't try they won't know what's possible. As for Ryan in transport, anyone is better than Ross! Germany has lifted non-essenti...

Conservative? Surely it is important to get flights operational? EI are posturing on jobs so why not get aircraft in the air and see what is actually required! Every seat missed is lost revenue. Lost revenue? They are losing less by keeping aircraft grounded. Important to get flights back but also ...

As expected the Greens got a rebranded Transport minister position. I don't think it will bad for Aviation but not exatly the best outcome. The junior position remains with FG so I don't think anything to radical will happen.

If loads are really bad on EI routes to MAN and BHX, would it not make more sense to use an AT7 on the route, rather than an A320? Can't see AT7s doing DUB-LGW, but they were already being used to MAN and BHX. Certainly would not rule out LGW being downgraded for Winter depending on how the situati...

But they have requested 14 more it says. From what I can see, S20 they have 28 slots which is 2 flights per day. Emirates will not be announcing any increase unless DAA sort out infrastructure at Dublin Airport, as made clear by Enda Corneille Looks like they applied for 42 but only given 28 for now.
