Something to cheer us up and remind us of the good times.
If you fancy an Irish aviation Christmas present while helping St Vincent de Paul, check this out.
but if the crew were operating with the APU air bleed pressuring the aircraft then they could climb back to 20000 feet as the APU is certified up to 22500 ft using one pack.
This could have been done to avoid high terrain before diverting.
As the PPE equipment is usually packed in boxes for loading, it results in the aircraft ‘ bulking out ‘ ( physically full ) before it reaches it’s maximum weight carrying limit. Masks, gloves and gowns are not very heavy so while 1200 tonnes doesn’t sound like much in weight, it is millions of items...Jump to post
Here’s a link to a website detailing defunct Irish airlines with pics.
Including some not mentioned yet.

Seems like they are just stretching out the announcements to gain the maximum publicity.
eg Aer Lingus reminded everyone of their 6 other new routes while announcing Rhodes.
The public are easily distracted these days and need to be brought back to the shiniest ball.
EI cabincrew are normally hired for the Dublin base now but can bid to transfer to Cork or Shannon if a vacancy becomes available as these bases only have enough crew to cover their local flights . So it’s generally a lifestyle choice by them. They can be rostered from another base with their travel...Jump to post

Here we go.
This will keep him happy
I believe the 17th January is the date for the big reveal.Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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.Jump to post
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.Jump to post
Galwayman, You obviously have some personal issues with seniority. Are you a professional pilot ? In general, the senior pilots are the most experienced pilots in the airline, I would like the Captain flying me to be happy and focused on his flying and not distracted by missing his children’s birthd...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
At €12 for a pint of beer I am surprised any pilot can afford to be intoxicated, allegedly.Jump to post
Perhaps Ryanair have to appear to be trying to set up a Berlin base in order to attract any Air Berlin
pilots into Ryanair.
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. As to why EIGAJ has not visited Boston? : This is their newest aircraft a 242tonne max takeoff -300, it's esse...Jump to post
