Hi All,
I'm flying KIR-DUB-KIR tomorrow for the craic and I'm wondering if I need PLFs for these flights, the whole thing is a bit onerous and if the purpose of these PLFs was to contact trace, surely the fact that it's a domestic flight would be irrelevant.
Cheers


No you don’t.

Hi CC47.
No PLFs needed on an Irish domestic flight.
The passport control gold will ask you what flight you came from and once it's Kerry or Donegal there will be no PLF needed.
Enjoy. Looks like 43 checked in on Dublin Kerry and coming back up on the evening v flight a total of 28. You'll have lots of space!

So will they start flying before Jan 2023 then? It seems very early for them to get their first aircraft.

I’d say there’s a strong likelihood they’ll start before January 2023, it was always the ‘official’ start date from their negotiations with Aer Lingus prior to the collapse of Stobart but once that happened, everything changed.

There’s now a huge incentive to get things started a bit earlier and they appear to be progressing with the aim of doing that.

Due to travel UA business class DUB-EWR soon. Curious if UA has any lounge access at DUB? Contacting UA here in the US only informs me "they use 51st & green" which seems to still remain closed. Any other options? Asking as my journey for the 9.20 departure starts with a bus journey from Ennis at 01.00 and I'm trying to plan whether I need to self-cater. My last trip DUB-ORD on AA in early July was eye opening. Empty airport and almost nothing open!

2 quick questions. Is the DAA lounge open, or will be open in October? Also, is there a time that fast track opens? Trying to book it but only allows me to book from 5am.

The flights by BA Cityflyer flights from BHD to GLA/LBA/EXT seem now to have a code share with Aer Lingus (BHD-LBA BA7313 / EI 8383) this may be with do with
Emerald Airlines starting soon. I would expect Emerald Airlines to start with limited service from 31st Oct then build up soon as possible

Emerald Airlines secures AOC after successful demo flight.

Emerald Airlines has been granted its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by the IAA making it Ireland’s newest airline. Securing the AOC further highlights Emerald Airlines’ professional capabilities, adherence to the highest standard of safety regulations needed for aircraft operations and proves its fitness-to-fly capability following the successful completion of rigorous inspections by the IAA.

Emerald Airlines completed its Proving Flight, EAI 001, on the 3rd of September 2021. Flight EAI 001 departed from Dublin Airport at 3:48 PM and arrived 37 minutes later at Cork Airport.

I'm sure there's a valid reason but in situations like these, why can't a tug be deployed to move the aircraft off the runway to minimise disruption? It sounds like it wasn't an emergency, rather an engine malfunction.

It does, but when there is a temporary problem with the runway in use I imagine it is preferable to resolve that if possible. To redirect all traffic to runway 16/34 take a bit of time to organise too.

Quite possible that with an issue ongoing on the airfield that fire coverage may not have been available for additional arrivals if anything else had happened.

Is 16/34 not currently closed due to the northern end being worked on as it overlaps the new runway? I was taxing in the other evening and noticed barriers at the far end near the new runway area.

Part closed for N Runway however its now fully closed for maintenance. Fully operational in October.

As indicated above it would take time to open 16/34 and some aircraft on finals as the incident started would have likely diverted anyway.

Also, UA have changed EWR-DUB-EWR from a 78X to a 764 which seems like a significant downgrade.

It does (10R, 28L) unfortunately if you block one, you automatically block the other. It doesn’t matter how many you have if the fire crews close the airfield, as they have to when initiating a full rollout.

A tug wasn’t needed, the aircraft can taxi fine on one engine. They have checklists they need to run and this likely caused the delay. They need to figure out is there a fire? A fuel leak? Injuries? Structural damage? Do they need to evacuate? They must not be rushed or distracted by us in ATC in these situations, they’re working hard and need to get it right. The runway is theirs for as long as they need it. That’s what alternate and contingency fuel is for (for everyone else affected).

Yeah unfortunately you won’t get their new Polaris seats but at least you’ll get to fly on a rare aircraft! I think there are only about 40 -400s.

Almost perfectly correct, there are 37 of them. They are quite rare indeed - I'd be happy to have no Polaris and get one of those, just to say I have been on one.

Given the unusual 2-1-2 config and flying solo, I have one of the single D seats both ways. Not quite an EI throne, but looks interesting.

Well EI-GEY is approaching 20 years, as were the other 332s (LAX, DAA & EWR) that have since left so there is a strong possibility GEY will leave too. Especially given the fact that it still has the old biz cabin (Ex Qatar). So will they need a single 332? My guess is probably not, they already have a few 333s that they got last year and I doubt they need extra capacity.

Correct me if I’m wrong but i think the EI 332s were nearly always used on west coast routes that the 333s couldn’t reach? Because of crew rests and range but the new 333s can fly west coast so there isn’t much of a need for 332s.

It seems a technical error happened in the Aer Lingus reservations systems and generated cancellations on some AGP flights when the flights were not actually cancelled. Apparently they are trying to reinstate those effected.

Just for info, GEY’s cabin was reconfigured so that it had the EI Business Class seating. I can see GEY being returned to Qatar. It is worth remembering that EIK and EIL are also leased from Qatar. DAA and DUO are still in the fleet officially. A few years ago there was a fleet information notice issued by EI where a fleet of 15 A330-300s and 1 A330-200 would be in the fleet around 2023. The accepted belief was that DUO would be the last 200 standing. It was delivered in 2007. Covid may have changed this.

That was originally the case but in later years, as further A333s were added, the A332s flew different routes, dependent on demand. I flew on EI-LAX in Sept. 2019 on EI109 DUB-JFK but A333s were also used on that service.

I'm wondering if the plan to axe CFN-GLA by Loganair is potentially part of a plan to tender for DUB-CFN and in doing so add in the potential to add a GLA flight? Might make them more attractive. However, an Aer Lingus Regional service is the most attractive option. First for connectivity and the pricing was far superior to the kind of pricing that Amapola offer.

Makes sense in the short to medium term for IAG to consolidate these routes, particularly if Cityflyer is doing well and happy to continue operations there.

In the longer term it’ll be interesting to see where Emerald fit into this and what their expectations are at Belfast City.

Either way it’s great news for BHD to keep these routes and with strong brands in the market working together to maintain them.

Aer Lingus are having more technical issues with their computers . OLCI has gone down since early this morning and lots of passengers unable to check in for flights.

Strange!
I thought ASL would have done well out of covid with freight operations. But maybe not.

Loganair To Launch New Dublin-Teeside Route

Dublin Airport welcomes today’s announcement by Loganair that it will begin a new service between Dublin and Teesside next year.

The airline will operate its four times weekly service with a 49- seater Embraer ERJ regional jet aircraft from May, 2022.

Great to see another Loganair route added to Ireland.


I would be worthwhile for EI to try and hook up a codeshare with Loganair for connections. ABZ too.

To all you frequent fliers to London. I'm flying out of Heathrow in a few weeks time. With BA from T5 to Dublin. It's been about 10 years since I've done so. What's your thoughts on getting from London - is the Heathrow express worth the cost or would you go the Tube even though it takes that bit longer? I will only have a small bit of hand luggage with me, so lugging suitcases isn't a concern.


Thanks!

The article explains the situation well, I thought. It is about the group as a whole, not just the Irish arm.

Heathrow Express is way over priced unless there happens to be a deal or offer code. Id stick with the Piccadilly line into central London to be honest. Don't forget you can get duty free now its quite a saving.
