As mentioned above, its the SHARP kit. It uses the aileron as an additional spoiler on landing and is available on all A32X models (also as an upgrade package).

Ive flown 3 times on the 736 and twice on the same frame, all SK and both frames now retired (LN-RCU x2 & LN-RPW). The second flight was scheduled to be a 73G and from the gate I couldn't see the aircraft so wasn't aware until I boarded that it would be a 600. When you notice that the cabin is n...Jump to post

Agreed with everything except the 717. Delta got them from WN/FL. I don't think they had much in expectations beyond basic support since the 717 had been out of production for quite some time before DL ever got their hands on them. I knew there was something hazy in my memory about the 717 bit. Edi...Jump to post
Boeing and DL never had a great relationship and DL were traditionally a Douglas customer. They've had big Boeing orders in the past (see recently completed 737 order) but these days Boeing don't offer anything can't be matched in some degree by Airbus. Boeing's antics with BBD over the C-Series cem...Jump to post
The slot was assigned on the basis of a narrow body, the A340 was a very late addition to the schedule. It's only once a week at a peak time for wide body operations so getting your preferred stand isn't guaranteed. Dunno about that.. Ive known for several months that the A340 would be used once a ...Jump to post
He sure seems friendly with Qatar Airways and their afliates. Ive been aware of him for quite some time and I believe the Qatar association has a large degree of truth to it.

BA leased an EI 747 for a short period in the 80's and was in a hybrid livery could have been that. If not, EI were known to flew them to LHR from time to time but they were not a frequent visitor. You speak of short 747 routes, but ironically EI had an even shorter 747 route DUB-SNN with a flight t...Jump to post

My home airport here in the states is right behind it at #2 on that list and is occasionally #1 passing JFK. Guess.
DUB has scheduled pax 747 ops until 1995 when EI retired them in place of the A330, however SQ kept running a twice weekly 74F via CPH until the early 2000's. I also think AF used them on the way from ORD to CDG, but that route's a 77F now every Sunday morning. However, its still common to see them ...Jump to post
From another thread, I've read that a new US policy with regards to wet leases might have some impact for Aer Lingus. In effect approval to operate the 757's will expire on 30 March unless the EU implement an agreement made between the US and the EU back in Feb 2018. https://www.regulations.gov/docu...Jump to post
You can see it on Google Maps, behind the big hanger with the flared corners. I would appreciate it if you could give some more detail about where the aircraft is, thanks!

I was told from a normally reliable source that BA have two 744's heading to DUB in the next few weeks for a paint job. This isn't to say they'll be in any special livery, but just that they are getting a lick of paint. Although BA do some of their painting in DUB anyway, so it wouldn't be unusual t...Jump to post
I agree. I believe Thomson had them in 2-4-2. I never flew it but I saw footage when they were on Airline back in the Britannia Airways days Yup that's correct, flew both DUB-CUN and DUB-AUH-BKK with BY in the late 90's/early 00's.

I know they must be saving a ton on fuel. I was flying JFK-NRT-MNL on the 744 we had to return to the gate to top off with fuel because we taxied too long and we couldnt make it to NRT with the fuel on board. That sounds like to me they were already cutting it a bit close, unless you were sitting o...Jump to post
Let’s not diss the livery before it arrives. No doubt everyone here will hate it, just like every other logo that’s revealed. Just like the current livery. Then it will grow on us and we will love it and moan in 15 years when it is replaced. Delta American Cathay Come to mind immediately. Haha! I l...Jump to post
The airline will remain nameless but a friend of the family was a captain who upgraded from the A320 to the A330, realized quickly that the A330 lifestyle wasn't for him and went back to the A320. What stood out about it was back then getting onto the A330 had a 7 to 10 year waiting list, so for a p...Jump to post

I mean how much traffic is there in Ireland and probably much easier to ask for deviations around weather While nowhere near the congestion of NYC, DUB handles nearly 30M pax per year so its hardly a quiet airspace. I think the EI crew were right to request a deviation, but I also think the control...Jump to post

By all accounts he a bit of a "spoofer" and most of what he says either has no substance or is a regurgitated press release. I think he comes across as quite a "insert swear word here" on Twitter, but on the flip side, millions of people BS their way trough life so credit to him.Jump to post
Irish Air Letter’s December edition lists the exQatar Airways A330-200 c/n 441 as joining the Aer Lingus fleet in May 2018. This will be the second A330 to start operating next year, GCF being the other one. Quite an old frame as far as A330's go. Delivered new in 2003. Although, looking at airflee...Jump to post

Boeing's deal to United is irrelevant. The question relates to what has BBD done in the U.S. market.

I'm sorry but what you are saying is impossibly stupid. The WTO panel hears disputes regarding -international- trade matters (as does the NAFTA panel).

I was reading the below article and noticed the following paragraph, Since that time, Air Force officials and Boeing executives have tried to make it seem as though they're acting in a frugal manner.

These works have been going on for the best part of a year now, by my reckoning.

I've got some FR flights booked for the end of the week, which I'm a bit concerned about. I suppose EU261 would make rebooking more affordable.

It depends on a lot of things and also the airport. The ramp or ground controller decides on which way they want you pointing after pushback. Most of the time it depends on which runway they are departing on. A few airports, like ATL, you call with your SID departure and that determines which way t...Jump to post
