Its an extra flight due to high demand. They had planned to operate it with the spare A332 but I am guessing its due to some aircraft in France having checks. So they may overrun. It won't be Titan operating it, EI always use an American company to operate any extra flights that they can't. I think its Air Transport International that they use.

That may present a problem tomorrow given that EI have 6 scheduled t/a flights tomorrow and only 4 planes(assuming EI-LAX is still tech tomorrow).

Good to see them making a bit of publicity about the return of the summer transatlantic services. In years gone by, they just sort of started with little or nothing said about it. The SNN marketing team have really srtarted to put in a badly needed effort this past year or so. I thing the press releases section of the SNN website has posted more articles in the past year alone than the 10 years previous put together.

Yes it did operate the 137 but had to return to DUB with flap issues. Doesn't look like any of the t/a flights are cancelled today though. So I am guessing that some other metal will be operating some flights today for EI.

Air Zambezi (defunct since 2002) previously used the IATA code ZT, which is now used by Titan. This is obviously another of those IT issues with old IATA codes and the flight will be flown by a Titan 767. The outbound is the EI 2017 earlier in the day.
Most Flown:- G-BUVA (20 Flights), EI-DEB (12 Flights), EI-JFK (11 Flights)

I hope it happens myself, i think Ireland's location is positioned that it can take advantage of A321NEO services to deeper N American cities than from any other European and even most UK airports.

Quoting BestWestern (Reply 127):
Could EI do something radical eastbound with the 757, like CAI, TLV, or even south to Lagos - all (somehow???) feeding the DUB trans-Atlantic services?

I can't see CAI or TLV on the cards but Lagos would be very interesting. It seems to have decent yields and you can time it to fit in with all the UK connections.

Currently in DUB T1 catching my flight to LHR and can't help but notice that gates 312-313 in Pier B are all blocked off and undergoing a significant refurb. Oh well so much for them demolishing the facility and building a proper pier! Lol

Also notice a Titan 757 parked over at T2. Sources suggest its operating the EI109!

That would make sense. What happens to J passengers in this instance? I am assuming that the Titan 757 doesn't have the same business class seats etc. I would be pissed if I paid a full J fare and got that instead of the normal J EI service.

To be fair to Titan, purely being an ACMI & ad-hoc charter airline why would they need to a have a nice product or many J class seats. There just happy to get any business from BA, EI & others.

I read on another thread the Titan 767 is flying for BA so obviously the 757 is the next best alternative.

Have seen on here suggestions that there's likely a rather large hole in the order books for NG models during the Max rampup period due to most recent orders being Max and even some conversions.

The Jurassic/Classic and Classic/NG had some overlap too, so I strongly suspect this will be NGs.

I think their 767 is configured in all Y setup and therefore wouldn't suit EI's need as such. The 757 does have business class if required I believe.

So with the FR announcement about getting ~200 new planes from Boeing coming on Sunday, what are the chances that they might surprise everybody with some l/h aircraft thrown in the mix? I know it is highly unlikely but given that their chances of taking over EI have all but disappeared, there might be a tiny tiny chance

FR are capable of anything but they did say that any long haul operation would be a fully owner subsidary and not FR themselves. Not to mention the huge backlog of long haul aircraft orders at Boeing recently made worse by the B787 grounding. Unless FR are going to order the B748! Now that would be way, way out of left field! I think the biggest revelation about the FR order will be if they go for the new MAX or stick with end of the line NG aircraft.

Good news for cross border business for DAA .

Dublin Airport Grows Northern Ireland Business by 15% in 2012

More than half a million Northern Ireland residents used Dublin Airport last year, a 15 per cent increase on 2011, according to new figures from the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).

The growth in northern business was far in excess of the average at Dublin Airport in 2012, as total passenger numbers at the airport increased by 2 per cent to 19.1 million last year.

“Dublin Airport’s business from Northern Ireland is booming,” said DAA Public Affairs Director, Paul O’Kane. “Last year 521,000 Northern Ireland passengers travelled through Dublin Airport, which is equivalent to almost 30 per cent of the population of the North.”

There's a major upgrade of Pier B going on currently.

Gates 312 and 313 are closed currently as part of the first phase. It will apparently be a complete upgrade of departures level.

One has to speculate given the current low level of traffic at Pier B if a similar standard to T2 is being sought in order to persuade certain carriers to move over from Pier E, which will certainly be full at peak times this summer.

Well T2 use this as the over flow for some time now so its not a surprise and was much needed. Lets hope they put some heaters/AC in there also. During the Winter its freezing and during the Summer its roasting.

Just finished my recent TR on the trip I took Us Airways Envoy and BA Club Europe. We opted for the Via LGW/LHR option rather than the direct into DUB on the B757 . We just thought that the product would be alot better and we were right. For anyone interested its here :

Aer Lingus trustees must get notice of move to pay shareholders €500m

The High Court has ruled that the trustees of Aer Lingus workers’ pensions funds must be given prior notice of a proposed €500m distribution from Aer Lingus’s capital reserves so as to pay dividends to shareholders.

It is then open to the trustees to bring a claim against the company given the €930m deficit in the funds and to seek injunctions restraining distribution of the €500m if that brings the reserves below the amount of the claim, Mr Justice Roderick Murphy directed.

He said Aer Lingus was not entitled to an unconditional order concerning the proposed €500m distribution but the trustees’ application for any distribution to be conditional on retaining sufficient reserves to address a claim also “poses a problem”.

Citjet are offering a free ticket to anywhere on their network for anyone flying 4 times from DUB-LCY-LUX. Interesting that they have chosen LUX. I guess with the absence of LG there is still some traffic which is quite high yielding to get.

Yeah the A330 has a much superior product and even though I only paid GBP137 for the whole lot I still wanted the best product  

Was that the price all in or just for an upgrade?  Wow!

With Vodafone ending their sponsorship of Dublin GAA, anyone think EK could take over? Im surprised that they still have not really got into sports sponsorship in Ireland yet apart from, IIRC a golf tournament. Considering how many different sports & teams they are involved with worldwide surely they would be interested. Also being involved with one of the biggest 'brands' in GAA could be a way of getting one over EY with their not exactly well known involvement in the hurling championship?

No it was the last BMI redemption. 17,500 miles plus GBP137 cash/taxes. Still an amazing finale before they closed down

Yes it will be great. Not many chances if any from Ireland on these machines.

Hmm EK at least would be a more ethical choice

So today is the first day that 3 scheduled EI flights go to BOS. I believe that I correct in saying that this is the first time this has happened for EI. I know the BOS is strong but is there enough demand to fill 3 330's in a day? I did notice that they did send all three 332's to BOS today but that may have more to do with demand for JFK and ORD given the weekend that is in it.

I hope Aer Lingus would fly to MIA.

Study supports three weekly A330 (or equivalent) roundtrip passenger frequencies with 80% load factor potential. This route would qualify for Miami International Airport (MIA) Air Service Incentives.

When EI were in OW, there were rumors of such a route starting up to DUB. I don't see it happening now.
