Bring back the days when monarch did SSH on the 757. Great service, great aircraft.

The first stage of the visit involved events in the west of the country, so SNN was a natural first stop.

Anyone know what the delay was with the DL flight to ATL this morning? Noticed it while driving past DUB on the M50 at around 1045, was still there at 1230.
|Quoting dstc47 (Reply 16):|
Somewhat more interesting but made no mention of the Soviet fuel base period and rather long on the "Shannon has overcome challenges before" rhetoric to address current problems. A good number of errors also, especially in the initial section but some interesting film, but edited rather out of chronology however. Interesting to see a glimpse of our current President at a Shannon protest concerning US troop movements also.

Sorry but it left DUB for turkey yesterday

For an Airport with so much history, the film should have been much better. But some nice clips all the same.

All United flights between Shannon and Newark have fully flat beds in BusinessFirst.

My guess would be that the B757 that was originally set to operate the additional rotations has been switched to DUB-IAD.
|Quoting tonymctigue (Reply 26):|
Speaking of UA, it seems as if the additional flights that CO have been operating on the SNN-EWR route for the past two years are no longer bookable which is a pity and more than a bit of a setback.
|Quoting irishbean (Reply 22):|
Can anybody help me out with a question, I fly to SFO now on a near monthly basis, currently via LHR on BA, there are options with other airlines, however, what airlines flying into Ireland have 'fully flat beds' in business class? and from where? AA from ORD is lie flat, or it was a few months ago when I took it. Aerlingus is lie flat, but I have been told this may be upgraded sometime in the future to fully flat, anyone more information on this? Delta? US? any others?

An American Airlines flight (AA109 LHR-BOS, a Boeing 757-200) was diverted to Shannon today and was on-stand between 14:21 and 16:42. Presumably a medical diversion.
|Quoting tonymctigue (Reply 35):|
As far as I can recall, DL were using a B767-400ER for both SNN-JFK and SNN-ATL routes during that summer. He thinks it was a B767-300ER. Can anyone here confirm which aircraft type it was?
|Quoting EI747SYDNEY (Reply 41):|
EI should have had an Irish Aviation museum located near to Shannon Airport with some of its old 707s etc on display!
|Quoting AmricanShamrok (Reply 36):|
I'll be able to confirm for you at the weekend if you don't get an answer by then (I don't have the Summer 2007 timetable to hand at the minute). But I'm fairly certain they operated the 764 on both routes...though they weren't using the DL122/DL123 flight numbers on SNN-JFK at the time. It was something like DL112 and another one as far as I can remember.
