Ryanair says could start getting 737 MAX by April

Ryanair could receive its first deliveries of up to 10 grounded 737 MAX aircraft from Boeing by April, the airline's chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said.

But Mr Jacobs cautioned that the timing was dependent on regulators.

GOL are saying the same.
while today, AA have removed the MAX from flight schedules until June.

Has anyone seen any sneak peeks of the new EI uniform? Really looking forward to the reveal on Wednesday!

More blue than green on first look at the ladies designs. With hints of teal.
Gents will be a very dark navy. Keeping the light blue shirt. No idea if there is a waistcoat.
Ladies will have a choice, skirt and blouse, full length dress or trousers and blouse.

“Join us at 10.00am on Wednesday January 15th for an exclusive showcase of our new uniform. We can’t wait to share it with you.”

Check out Aer Lingus Facebook for a sneak peak at some of the cloth and materials used. They will be live streaming on FB from 10:00 Dublin time.

The previews in that video look promising and in line with what many expect, a similar colour palette but with a modern design and cut.

It shows a sketch of a waistcoat for the men, I hope that features in the final design as they can keep a uniform sharp and looking smart even when the jacket is removed.

Not surprised if there’s a focus on blue, while the livery no longer features the colour, it’s still very much part of the corporate brand and features heavily elsewhere in the company.

According to another forum, more A333s are on the way for Aer Lingus. At least one ex-Qatar A333 (A7-AEH) should arrive in April, likely to replace EI-EWR as it comes off its five year lease. It will become EI-EIK.

A second ex-Qatar A333 is also expected to arrive, again acting as a replacement for one of the current frames.

These are of course in addition to the *new* A333s due to enter service this year, these are still expected to be final passenger A330ceo’s built by Airbus.

The business class on that Qatari A333 looks much better than the last one EI leased (EI-GEY).

Definitely, still a 2-2-2 config so slightly inferior to Aer Lingus’ current product but a big step up from the very dated cabin that EI-GEY came with.

Speaking of EI-GEY, seems it has finally been updated into standard Aer Lingus configuration and should be back in service soon.

Interesting - so a net gain of two units? Must be done new destinations on the horizon?

While there is expected to be a net gain of two units, I think the previously announced increased frequencies across the Atlantic keep them busy while allowing some additional cover during the week.

Aer Lingus has already suggested that it hopes to provide more fleet flexibility this year, particularly on long haul.

Pretty much everything is accounted for this summer.

They ran with the 3/14 length sleeves though which some staff during trials were mixed about. I wonder if they compromised and are giving them a choice. Also it was nice to see familiar faces on the cat walk who us regular flyers see all the time at DUB.

Great design.

I’m actually pleasantly surprised just how nice and well put together the entire look is. Also fair play to the crew and staff who walked the catwalk, it’s not an easy thing to do and they all looked great, definitely some familiar faces in there too!

Personally I really like the navy dress, it’s a great silhouette and the other variations seems to be designed to look good on all shapes and sizes. The men’s uniform is a huge improvement, it’s smart and finally brings it all together very nicely.

Really like the brand collar and the scarf details too, adds a bit a flare!

Timing may play a role here. The 2 new A330 will be in service before the summer and will be fully tasked with the planned increase in frequency (SEA,MCO,MIA)
No word on when those 2nd hand airframes will arrive, maybe EI want to squeeze another summer out of MSN 330 (EWR)

Not too keen on some of the Items in the new uniform but overall its not too bad. The contrasting green collar on the long men's coat is quite cool, and the suit looks fairly sharp. Perhaps its like the new livery, it will grow on customers.

I suppose not many uniforms stand out nowadays. I think Ryanair's one that was launched a few years back has aged quite well, particularly the long yellow coats.

Thanks for sharing. Definitely a step up from -GEY. Additionally this one already has the mood lighting and also the higher center overhead bins, which is a nice upgrade.

Ryanair secures injunctions against travel booking site

Ryanair says a court in Hamburg has granted it interim injunctions against German travel search engine, Skyscanner.de.

The airline claims the case relates to the website's alleged display of Ryanair fares with a hidden mark-up that lead to higher fares than those on Ryanair.com.

With the RJ85 EI-RJX no longer available, the Leinster rugby team has had to look for new means of transport this season. They have flown out to Italy with Aer Lingus this week, using an Aer Lingus A320 for a trip to Treviso (flight from Dublin to Venice):

I did just see it about 30mins ago by chance but it won’t be seen until switchover date on the 10th February.

A mate of mine got theirs and certainly the material seems better compared to the old uniform. The trousers,jumper and tie for the Men is more comfortable for some compared to the suit.

Not flown T/A saver but expect its like short haul and they will open check in and allow you to select some of the cheap seats (lowest price at back) if there are available for free. Otherwise unless you decide to pay they will allocate seats at the airport check in and this will probably be from back to front of aircraft.

I though the roll-out was the 15th of Jan, not Feb. Sorry for introducing confusion.

It seems the end could be near for the Aer Lingus retro livery. After almost nine years in the 1960s design, it has been flown for repainting in Shannon.



While many hope it will retain its current retro look, it seems likely that it will be repainted into standard livery.

However, the 85th anniversary is just around the corner and could bring with it an opportunity for a new retro livery.

Holiday hell as over 100 Dublin Airport passengers left stranded in Krakow with no Ryanair flight home for DAYS as starving kids sleep on floor

One angry passenger told Dublin Live "nearly all of the staff just ignored us completely like we weren't there"

www.dublinlive.ie/news/dublin-news/dubl ... 590292.amp

—-

The celebrations are in full swing today as Dublin Airport celebrates its 80th birthday having first opened on January 19 1940.
While we come to terms with the realisation that 1940 was in fact 80 years ago, the team at the airport are busy putting on a show for passengers passing through their terminals with live 1940s-style performances from harmony trio The Apple Blossoms among others...

If maintaining the retro scheme they could make the dark green more like the original, brighter shade.

*CORRECTION*

The Head of Social at Aer Lingus social media has confirmed EI-DVM has gone in for repainting but will maintain its retro livery.

We’ll know for sure in just over a week.

I haven’t used EI economy saver but I’m just back from Brazil on BA/IB using economy saver fares and would assume the experience is similar

Both IB and BA had pre- allocated me seats at - 24 online check in , these were good seats for a solo traveller aisle and window . One a 787 or A330 you’re going get an aisle or Window most times. Both allowed me to change seats at the last minute but for a fee ... and it wasn’t worth paying the money . Especially on BA the price was just beyond stupid

There were other seats available down the back for a fee and this is definitely the place to be if you’re a single traveller , the forward cabins were packed with families and crying babies

Based on my experience I would pre book a seat on IB or EI where the fee is reasonable but I wouldn’t pay the outrageous prices on BA . I would always Pre- book a seat on a 777

There aren’t really any bad seats on an A330 if you’re travelling alone . If you don’t like you’re seat just board last and head as far to the back as possible , pretend you’re going the loo or something

Air travel spurs economic growth - Aer Lingus boss says as airlines under pressure to cut carbon footprint
PEOPLE can't lose sight of the fact that air travel provides important global connectivity and spurs economic growth, even as airlines come under increasing pressure to cut their carbon footprints, according to Aer Lingus boss Sean Doyle.

“The GDP halo effect, the economic catalyst, and the social benefits of connectivity and travel are very important,” he told an audience today at the Airline Economics Growth Frontiers conference in Dublin.

Dublin Airport supports almost 130,000 jobs - study

Dublin Airport contributed a total of €9.8 billion in Gross Value Added (GVA) to the Irish economy - equivalent to more than 3% of the national economy - a new study has found.

The study of the airport's overall economic impact was undertaken by economic consultants InterVISTAS.

Nice schedule - will hopefully allow some decent photos!

Interesting article on EI and its A321LR delays in Flight: https://www.flightglobal.com/strategy/a ... 54.article

Incidentally, I had the opportunity to fly on the 321LR last weekend, taking the 154 to LHR. Very pleasant experience. The most striking feature was the quietness of the engines on takeoff, which reminded me of the A380. Don't know if it's just because of the engines themselves, or whether cabin insulation has been improved. Very impressive nonetheless.

Anyone know when the next A321 (after LRD, next month) is due for delivery.

I noticed that Jethros listing for EI now includes the A330 being acquired from QR, EI-EIK. So, for this summer, EI will have ten A333s, three or four (?) A332s and four A321Neos. Is this correct; I understand at least one of the 332s is leaving.

Still no sign of any movement on EI's short haul fleet?

I have heard conflicting reports about an whether an A332 is leaving this year. Some people are saying its staying for now. Is it confirmed? I tend to think they would be better off keeping it as a spare for now considering its age.

Yes, was mentioned here last week. The aircraft is A7-AEH from Qatar, it's expected to replace EI-EWR (A332) which is coming to the end of its five year lease.

A second frame from QR is rumoured but not confirmed.

Aer Lingus hasn't so much as even hinted that it's looking at the short haul fleet in the near term, I'd say we're a long way off seeing anything substantial on that front.

I don't think the current A320 fleet isn't going anywhere soon, the oldest frames (EI-CVA & EI-CVB) have been given the new livery while the slightly younger EI-DVx registrations are also receiving fresh repaints. The entire short haul fleet has also had mood lighting fitted in the past year, although I believe this was a reasonably cost and time effective retrofit compared to traditional lighting installations.

None of them have appeared on the production list yet, I would have expected to see them by now so I'm thinking a similar delay to last year can be expected with most coming well after the summer schedule is over.

Worth keeping an eye on this site;

https://aibfamily.flights/airline/Aer-Lingus

It usually tracks aircraft from their appearance on the production list, right through to delivery.

Still there as of late last week.

It was at BRU for a visit to LH Technics for WiFi installation. It's not required until the start of the summer schedule so will go into storage, either at BRU or the previously rumoured Malta.
