Re: Irish 10/19: Winter is coming

Are we starting to here noise from EI on it's transatlantic expansion? I would have thought by.now the.known aircraft delivery dates would have been factored in!

Re: Etihad will return to profitability by 2023

I guess when Abu Dhabi runs out of money, then Etihad will be in trouble. Just like the old Swissair, a foreign gentleman thought he could build an airline empire. The similarities are surprising!

Re: Irish 9/19

Always interested in how the DAA do their maths. Why should those currently using the airport pay for future facilities. Surely the future facilities will lead to increased numbers using the airport, thereby increasing the DAA revenues? No doubt I have missed something!!!!

I only ever said that the unions should not determine the future of an airline and if EI is making any decision based on scope clauses, then the union is determining the future of the airline!
