All Eastern carriers where airports and airlines have 24 hour operations
Have always thought 24 hour to be very sensible and an efficient use of assets!
Thanks OA260 for the A3 update

It may not be in use however, I'm pretty sure that when Norwegian leased the HiFly A380 to cover London-New York the IFE was disabled.

Virgin Atlantic are replacing their 747 on the Belfast to Orlando flights with an A332, anyone know if this is due to their 747's being phased out or just less demand on the route?

Possibly both. They’re also still struggling with RR engine problems and have had to consolidate some flights or use sub-optimal planes, the A332s were brought in to try and cover for some of the 787s.

That's incorrect, there are only five A332 VIR flights scheduled for Summer 2019. The 45 other movements will use the B744.

They are actually operating additional services this year, right through April, so it's certainly not reduced demand...

Indeed the VS flights Ex BFS are very popular and they do very well. They teamed up with a few TO in the North and the Prem Classes sell out.

For a lot of people In NI Dublin is a very convenient airport , it would be silly for EI to chase low yield point to point traffic which can easily be funnelled via DUB

Grounding of 737 Max 8s could cost Ryanair €10m this year, analysts say
Goodbody downgraded its view on the stock to ‘hold’ from ‘buy’

The global grounding of the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft could add €10 million in costs to Ryanair this year, stockbroker Goodbody said as it downgraded its view on the stock.

Analysts Mark Simpson and Nuala McMahon wrote that they had assumed cost improvements for full year 2020, helped by the arrival of 47 Boeing Max 8 aircraft.

The Dublin-headquartered airline has the largest order book of Boeing 737 Max 8s and was due to begin taking delivery of the first of up to 200 aircraft early this year.

www.irishtimes.com/business/transport-a ... 9?mode=amp

RYANAIR has reportedly cut a large number of flights from two key UK routes after the worldwide grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

According to the Independent, Europe's biggest budget airline will cancel several flights to Belfast and Edinburgh from London partly in response to the grounding – which followed last month's deadly Ethiopian Airlines crash.

Travel correspondent Simon Calder says Ryanair is cutting back its Stansted-Belfast service from three flights per day to just two per week – while its Stansted-Edinburgh service will be slashed from four per day to only four a week, with none of Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays.

I think BFS burnt all bridges with EI after their switch over to BHD with legal action/vitrolic press releases etc.

I wonder if we'll ever see the day of BHD being granted a runway extension.

.


However memories are short in the travel world and should EI ever offer to go back to BFS they would not turn them away. Very unlikely though for EI to go TATL from NI. Its a different era compared to the reasons why they were there before. EI would need to be literally paid to operate the route and I do not see that happening currently. Never say never though in another 5-10 years time. Aviation developments never cease to amaze me.

Maybe, but i'm sure they would rather use it for any new route out of Dublin instead. Hopefully there might be at least a seasonal SNN-ORD on the cards in a few years.

Dispute at Stobart Air could ground Aer Lingus Regional flights
Cabin crew may serve strike notice over pay, conditions and union recognition

Cabin crew could serve strike notice on Irish airline Stobart Air on Friday, potentially grounding Aer Lingus Regional flights in coming days.

Staff directly employed by Stobart Air in the Republic voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action in a dispute over pay, conditions and union recognition.

A spokesman indicated their trade union, Fórsa, could serve strike notice on the airline by Thursday. This could leave Stobart facing possible stoppages in as little as seven days.

Disappointing to see "other" long haul traffic decline. EY having only one daily and EK reducing traffic due to runway work at DXB might have had something to do with it, but still not a healthy development.

Time for Kerry Airport to fly solo?

It is wonderful for Kerry Airport and its shareholders that a Saudi Arabian billionaire banking family has taken such an interest in the facility.

Having initially invested in the early 1990s, the bin Mahfouz family have decided its high time they had a member on the board of the company running the airport.

Kerry Airport chairman Denis Cregan confirmed that Sammy Haress had been co-opted on to the board with effect from March 28th. He will represent the interests of Glenmore Capital, which is registered in the British Virgin Islands and represents the original investment in the airport by the late Sheikh Khalid bin Mahfouz.

It is not clear if the Saudi family are planning to take a greater interest in the day-to-day running of Kerry Airport, or if it is planning any investment in the facility. It might ease the strain on the public purse if they were.

This is not good news.

It’s dreadful that Kerry Airport would accept invested funds from companies and individuals from a country with such an appalling record in democracy, human rights, openness and equality.

Such egregious actors should be blocked from investing in democratic and free countries countries like Ireland and the UK.

Aer Lingus staff to ballot for industrial action

Aer Lingus aircraft loaders at Dublin Airport are to ballot for industrial action after fears arose over outsourcing.

The move comes after staff accused management of bringing in outside trainers from Manchester to train Dublin-based workers on aircraft push-backs rather than using its own locally based training department, according to well-placed sources.

Tensions were also heightened at the airline's Cork base after an independent review of staff relations there raised "significant concerns".

In Dublin, loaders agreed to the ballot and decided that in the meantime they would turn down any extra duties such as overtime, said the sources.

Irish air traffic up 3% in 2019

Apr 15, 2019, 14:50 PM by Alec Elliott

Figures released by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) today reveal that air traffic handled by Irish air traffic control is up 3% in quarter one 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.
Figures released by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) today reveal that air traffic handled by Irish air traffic control is up 3% in quarter one 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. The total amount of traffic safely handled in the first quarter of this year was 245,461 movements, an increase of over 7,000 movements on 2018 figures.

This growth is reflected across the board in Q1 2019. Ireland’s overflight traffic movements (flights, which do not land in Ireland), grew by 2.7% in comparison to same period in 2018. Q1 2019 also saw a 2.2% increase in North Atlantic Communications flights (Europe /US Flights), in comparison to the same period in 2018.

Irish airport figures released today show that overall commercial movements at the three Irish state airports grew by 5.7% in the first quarter of 2019 when compared to the same period in 2018. Dublin and Cork in particular continue to demonstrate robust growth with increases of 6.4% and 8.6% respectively in Q1 2019 over the same period in 2018.

Looking good! Interesting to see the entire tail painted, the standard of the new livery is to leave the lower leading edge of the vertical stab white as the "swoop" onto the fuselage begins there. Obviously Airbus always paint the tail early in construction with the actual livery applied later so it's likely this will be corrected then.

Note the white in the lower forward corner of the tail:

A C130 Hercules is in Dublin at the moment, I assume its transporting vehicles for Nancy Pelosi's visit.

Interesting about paint discrepancy on the tail on the Aer Lingus A321neo. I think the livery has grown on a lot of people but I still think the titles are too small, especially on the A330s and Avro RJs. It is difficult to fit a long title name on the RJs and ATRs due to the high wing design.

Also, are they definitely putting the 'ski mask' design on the cockpit windows of the A321neo's? Some neo operators have gone for it but most have not. I saw a rendering which looked cool but not sure if it was official. It would look great if this was applied to the entire fleet.

It's a UAE c-130 that came in from Rhodes today

Any news on the EI/FR transfer deal in DUB ? Will it be operational this summer or still in progress?

Indeed it would. I love it on the IB fleet that have it so far.

Also, are they definitely putting the 'ski mask' design on the cockpit windows of the A321neo's? Some neo operators have gone for it but most have not. I saw a rendering which looked cool but not sure if it was official. It would look great if this was applied to the entire fleet.

The official renderings of the A321neo in the previous livery featured it so I’d say the new livery will do as well. It looked quite awkward in the green top livery actually.

The ski mask was actually introduced just for the LR, not the neo, if you look at EI's renderings for the old A321 in the new livery it doesn't have it:

Nor does BAs new A321neo. But the first delivery LR (to Arika Air) does have it:

EI's previous LR renders in the old livery included the mask so I'm sure it'll feature with the new one, I'm not sure if it's mandatory by Airbus for the LR but wouldn't be surprised.

Passengers outraged as Dublin Airport bound Ryanair flight delayed for NINE hours

A mechanical fault is believed to be the cause of the delay

Passengers on a Ryanair flight due to land in Dublin Airport have expressed outrage after the flight was delayed for at nine hours.

The flight was due to take off from Gatwick Airport at 1:10pm yesterday afternoon but passengers were informed there would be a delay due to a mechanical issue.

Passengers were then left to wait on the plane for two hours before being told it would be at least another five hours before it departed.


One passenger took to social media to vent her frustration at the delay.

She said: "Currently still in Gatwick airport a full 3 hours past our original departure time. I was supposed to be in Dublin 2 hours ago.

"Everything started once we boarded at 13:30 when the captain very nonchalantly announced we’d be delayed for an hour and to get comfortable.

"The captain makes another announcement saying there’s something wrong with the plane and we’re to wait for the engineers to determine the problem.

"I fell asleep and woke up at 15:00 to find we were still not moving.

"At around 15:30 the captain announces they need a spare part that’s in Stanstead and that it’s to be another 5-6 HOURS and that we’ll be let off the plane. A full hour later is when we actually get off the plane."
