Re: Irish 7/19

The first A321LR is scheduled for delivery on 19th July, with 4 delivered before the end of the year.
Aer Lingus are hoping to do a flypast at the Bray Airshow with the first scheduled flight will be to Bradley on 2nd August.

Re: Long Haul Low Cost Airlines Operations

I seem to recall that they bought their 747’s which used up a lot of their cash and reduced their financial flexibility to overcome the initial
start up problems.

The damaged Star Alliance 340 is exactly where the google map location is.

Re: Icelandair taking over WOW

I can see this becoming a mess. Who pays the unpaid fees at Keflavik airport. Icelandair has to honour all the below cost fares that Wowair were pushing to generate cash in the last month. The cheaper Wowair crews will be used to force salaries lower at Icelandair causing labour issues, and any staf...

Re: WOW Air to kickstart US-DEL flights via KEF beginning Dec 5

I would imagine, seeing the queues at the Emirates counter, that many people will be bringing a lot of luggage. I can see the fees racking up to make it more expensive then other operators and if you miss your connection to Delhi, I hope you are dressed for 24 hours on Iceland.

Re: Primera Air Transatlantic Service Stopping in Iceland for Refueling

Impossible to make any money on these flights with extra flight times to Iceland , landing fees and expensive fuel on an airline whose only selling point is that they are cheap.
It’s a trip I would only do once as they may not be in existence for my return flight.

Some airlines also fly there to collect Syrian refugees to bring them to their home countries to begin a new life.

Re: Irish 7/18: Heatwave madness!

What are the pilots asking for ? The right for the most senior pilots, ie those with families and children in school, to influence where they should work. This is not a request for a pay rise or extra days off and will put Ryanair in line with most other airlines ar no cost. At the moment, your base...

To answer both questions above : Aer Lingus carry as much cargo as they can get to both destinations, the data from LAX is wrong. The aircraft are occasionally payload restricted in summer.
