Thank you for a new thread. -- Today sees FR and EI ramp up their Summer operations with routes to typical bucket and spade destinations resuming in a reduced schedule. How popular they will be is anyones guess. Despite some operators saying bookings are substantially increasing that is based on a ...Jump to post
MSP isn't an allowed port of entry currently right? EI likely have a specific customer for MSP pushing for service, cargo or pax, so tagging to BOS would be sensibleJump to post
Anyone know what happened to TK at DUB today ? http://i1160.photobucket.com/albums/q493/travelpics2019/8480689F-9A85-49C2-8F68-ADBEF185E00A_zpsapc696e4.jpg . http://i1160.photobucket.com/albums/q493/travelpics2019/17C83493-4E0B-4B3E-8381-768585956460_zpsqhfcn2k6.jpg Handover of Lisa Smith was from ...Jump to post
How much market that is remains to be seen - it definitely seems to be a niche market these days. Short-haul travel (less than a couple of hundred nautical miles) by airplane is stagnant or in decline. Islands are the likely driver for large turboprops going forward - both in developed markets (e.g...Jump to post

Flew AerSpace on Friday to AMS - ticket was actually every so slightly cheaper than the cheapest Saver, probably as the flight was basically full and it was a close in booking. It hasn't been implemented very well yet. You can't use the business/Aerclub checkin if you're just a normal non-status mem...Jump to post
Beware of reports like this. A FR24 playback confirms that no scheduled pax or cargo flights operated to or from DUB on the 25th or 26th. Someone may have looked at what tracking websites predicted, based on normal schedules. A Swedish Cessna Citation (SE-RLT) arrived at DUB on about 1945 on Christ...Jump to post

Living in Ireland makes this more awkward than it should be, relatively poor range of airlines for some time (due to strength of FR and to a less extent EI) is only being corrected now; plus I haven't flown around North America much - usually in and out on EI or KL.

Aer Lingus have issued a press release stating AerClub now has 1 million members. 450,000 Irish members, 267,000 US members and 152,000 members from across Europe and the UK, which is interesting. The person who is the 1 millionth member received 240,000 Avios, a Platinum card, and a €500 shopping ...Jump to post
The only two domestic routes, namely DUB-KIR/CFN are operated by EI Regional's ATR 42/72 fleet.
Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the host country would have to pay for a pre-clearance facility. I also thought the pre-clearance in Ireland had to do with immigration levels in the past - better for the airlines to have pax denied admission before they fly them and back messing their seat i...Jump to post

You think moving to the most volatile "currency" in the world would protect against fluctuating forex rates?

I did DUB-AMS-YUL-EWR-PDX (that turned in to EWR-IAH-PDX at the end due to a storm...) to get an MD11 and a less useful DUB-CPH flight time to get an MD80 when both were nearing retirement with those carriers (and entirely in passenger form for the MD11)
I was going to PDX and CPH anyway, though.
Its commercial and has been since first offered. Usually but not always been operated by the PSO operator during downtime but at times, such as now, the PSO operator hasn't done it and someone else has. Is the AT46 actually used for any other routes? At least initially in the Stobart period the AT43...Jump to post

These 'discounts' are usually off a full-rate fare which basically nobody pays and as a result are pointless. Good PR right now to say they're dropping it; unlikely they'll bother bringing it back if it does blow over though - and I don't think it'll blow over sufficiently anyway.

The issue is the A320 and 737, while technically the same type.. are really several different aircraft.

As I said on that thread, none of the beers in the video are black, so I don't think Dublin is one of the 3 cities.

The website makes it perfectly clear that if you dont pay for a reserved seat you will be allocated a seat at random! It could'nt be clearer so don't understand what you are moaning about.

Why would they need to defend a qualified, type-rated, employed pilot doing his job? Sorry but a 19 year old hardly has the maturity to be second in command of 150+ individuals.
