Even if this is what is claimed, how far could it have migrated from any crash site due to waves and tides?
A lot of sea in the Pacific.
The U.K. has a lot of offerings. The former airport terminal at Liverpool Airport built in the 1930's has been converted to a hotel. Because the airport facilities have migrated somewhat it is a good distance from the present terminal. It also has some preserved aircraft on display. If I recall corr...Jump to post
BRU has a hotel just across the road from the Terminal.
DUB has two hotels within the airport complex, one was developed by the airport operator but both are a fair walk from the Terminals.
Sometimes television use presenters who know something about the subject being covered. However, tonight with the exception of the ex-BA captain, and a fair try from Andy Peters, this is not in evidence. Trivial, trite and with Peter Snow over the top this is mortifying.

And the walk to the furthest gate in that proposed midfield terminal (and it would be a walk some of the time anyhow, given that the moving walkways break down or don't run all the way) would be just about as long as a stroll on the main runway from end to end. Just the thing to set you up for the d...Jump to post
Yes the growth in transatlantic business ex DUB is truly amazing, as is the extent of transit traffic on EI, mostly to/from places that already have direct service to/from JFK.

By the end of the year Dublin Airport should have 24 hour service on the Dublin Bus Number 41 bus service en route Swords/City/Swords!

Perhaps not in the first line of European airports, the operator of flights to the Aran Islands off the west of Ireland, operating as Aer Arann, owns the airport on the Connemara coast from which flights depart to the three Aran Islands.

A very odd comment by the Cllr, what does he mean? He seems to believe that more bus routes will deliver more passengers from SNN. 42 bus services out of Dublin Airport ??

Even though Ireland is a relatively small island, there were until relatively recently a fair number of internal flights.

I suspect that EI's comings and goings on the Scandinavian market, with services opening and closing, may have damaged their reputation there. I cant see Dublin to Iceland ever supporting more than one carrier, as poor Wow goes down we have to hope Icelandic stick with it.Jump to post
Don't know where you got numbers for Dublin assuming these are passengers,
Dublin had 31.5 m pax in 2018, not 18.4m. Cork had 2.4m.
Bad CDG (nothing good here, strikes and often rude with it also), LHR (airport layout does not help), FRA (signage confusing, slow security, bus to gates slow), ORD ( no fun changing terminals here, weather delays) MAN ( a security nightmare). Good All in Asia, I am afraid. SIN, HKG, Osaka and Seoul...Jump to post
Hard to believe after all this time and the hours of discussion here but the sod is to be turned on the new runway at DUB today.
Some of the residents of St Margarets, who claim to be there before the airport was built (1918 initially, reinstated duning WW II) are not happy.

Sunderland owned by Al Capone from the 1930's - how unlikely is that. There were no civil Sunderlands available before the end of WWII.
