I don't know about anyone else but I'll miss it, Aer Lingus has been there since before I was born so every flight I've ever taken with them out of LHR was at those gates!

I can see where your coming from and I used them for over a decade but I wont miss it. I think they ruined it when they ''enhanced'' it . It was not good before . I actually miss T2 . Fond memories there both as a passenger and working there. Still it all became sub standard in todays world.

Talking of lounges the new DAA lounge (former BMI ) lounge is now open. Similar colours to the one at B Gates and equally boring. ( Mind you at least there are good views from the former ) . Never thought Id miss the BMI lounge !

The inaugural ORD-SNN service operated by UA is on its feet:



A long time coming after a four year hiatus. The service was last operated by EI, 3x weekly in Summer 2009. I recently heard a rumour from the outsourced EI groundstaff at ORD that SNN-ORD was in EI's initial 757 plans. I'm sure this has changed now though after UA announced the service. I really hope this meets and exceeds expectations for UA and here's to an extended season next summer! Can't wait to use the service myself. My extended family are booked on numerous flights over the next three months also.

There has being some technical problems this week with other aircraft so that may be why it was operating and as the new A319 only arrived Friday which as entered services on Sunday that may also be why it was operating.

Aer Lingus flying high as passenger numbers rise by 5.3pc

Aer Lingus passenger numbers rose by 5.3pc to 1,021,000 in May 2013 compared to May 2012, it was announced today, as the airline released its May 2013 traffic statistics.

The airline welcomes the increase, following a 2.5pc decline in the year on year April passenger figures released in May 2013. However, this decline was attributed to the Easter Bank Holiday, which fell in March this year, as opposed to April as it did in 2012.

http://www.independent.ie/business/i...numbers-rise-by-53pc-29327516.html

Some good news on the figures.

A more in depth analysis here :

United Airlines is “looking closely” at a non-stop Dublin – San Francisco route, probably employing a B787 Dreamliner.

Interviewed yesterday by ITTN’s News & Features Editor, Neil Steedman, United’s James Mueller, Vice President Atlantic and Pacific Sales – who was in Dublin yesterday to celebrate United’s 15th anniversary serving Ireland and for today’s inaugural Shannon – Chicago flight – said: “There is no announcement today (!) but we are looking closely at a non-stop Ireland – US West Coast service and San Francisco is a major hub for us. Customers in the IT space in California are asking for more international routes – and those in Ireland! Consistency of service is important, of course, and we are watching this issue very closely. Such a route would be ideal for our B787 Dreamliner fleet.”

http://www.ittn.ie/bulletins/united-...-of-non-stop-dublin-san-francisco/

Certainly would be an ideal route for the 787. Aer Lingus will need to get in first if they seriously want to start West Coast again .

Certainly seems likes SNN's fortunes have started to turn for the better. I passed through twice in the last three weeks on my brief trip home and the place was noticeably busier than it had been for a long time. Loads on LHR-SNN was I would say about 70% and on SNN-LHR I would say in the high 80's. There was also a FR SNN-LGW flight boarding at the same time which judging by the size of the queue was in the high 80's also. Also, there seems to be a new air of vibrance and optomism about SNN which has replaced the air of decay and doom that has hung over the place for the last seveal years. Still a long way to go to full recovery but so far so good. They certainly seem to have appointed some good people to the board of the new SAA.

Aer Lingus will only have themselves to blame if United get in there before them. I know the rumours have been rife for well over a year and they've been understandably cautious before making any announcements but that length of time leaves the door wide open for competitors like UA. I also doubt we'd see EI launch LAX in response, it's SFO or nothing.

It would appear that AUHs plans to have its own pre clearance has been quashed. Could this mean we may see more development on the EI/EY front?

SFO-SNN a possibility, but surely a longshot.
DAL-SNN has got to be pure fantasy, but I assume the writer probably intended DFW-SNN which yours truly would love to see, but I'll believe it when I see it. Have to think DFW-DUB would happen first (if ever).
Is DFW/IAH - DUB/SNN even being talked about elsewhere, or is this just journalistic wishful thinking being nurtured by the new SAA?

Very wishful thinking, at most SNN could get ATL back but I don't see anymore. The growth in T/A traffic from Ireland's will begin to slow. The bubble is close to bursting and some sings are showing that carriers are being affected. Whatever EI announce for 2014 will likely be the end of T/A growth for a while.

While I'd love to see further longhaul growth out of SNN, I think Jamie is right by saying it may be reaching its peak for a while.

In saying that, the UA man did say a San Francisco-Ireland route was on the cards (not specifically SFO-DUB)...they might try and play SNN and DUB off one another for a good deal!

It'd have to be a fantastic deal from SNN, seeing as most of the high value traffic is in DUB or ORK - and due to no M20 and no direct trains versus express buses and direct trains its much of a muchness whether DUB or SNN is quicker to get to.

It does read a bit like journalistic optomisim alright. It would nigh impossible to imagine a situation where SNN would get a SFO connection before DUB. It would also be impossible to serve such a long route non-stop with a B757 which has already been proven to be the optimum aircraft size for long haul flights from SNN. AmericanShamrock is right in that the SAA need to focus on retaining SNN-PHL and SNN-ORD for next summer and hopefully seeing the SNN-ORD service period increase and perhaps and extra frequency or two on SNN-YYZ. I think there is a decent chance we will see a Middle East route from SNN in the future and possibly a return of the summer only SNN-ATL route.

United Airlines are celebrating 15 years of operations in Ireland. Good to see that they have stayed loyal to the Irish market and also that they are looking to expand in future. Would be nice to see B787s in DUB.  

--

Etihad are recruiting for a sales based position in Ireland to further liaise with the current sales team and increase their market share from Ireland.

It would be interesting to know how EY/EK are doing against each other and who is coming out on top in the Premium cabins.

Meant to link this article but cant edit above post. !

Shannon has a viable future, says United

Shannon Airport can have a viable future, according to a senior executive at United Airlines, after the carrier inaugurated a service to Chicago from the west of Ireland.

It will operate until the end of August.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, United Airlines' vice president of Atlantic and Pacific sales Jim Mueller, said he believed connecting with Chicago – where the airline has its headquarters – generated the scale required to service a destination such as Shannon.

"Chicago on its own is a tremendous source of corporate and leisure travel.

http://www.independent.ie/business/i...e-future-says-united-29332193.html

Also DAA reported 9% increase in traffic year on year for May so a decent increase. Long may it last.

It is nice to hear from a source such as United that SNN has a future although you got to love the Irish Independent's usual thouroughness when they mention that UA serve DUB-EWR and DUB-IAH but fail to mention that they also serve SNN-EWR despite the fact that the article primarily focuses on UA's operation at SNN.

If they need crew for 2014 at SNN they won't advertise until lather in the year, the past two rounds on the website were for the main summer season at Dublin.

They will be advertising any SNN positions internally first before they consider any outside applications so its safe to assume that all new entrants will be for DUB!

Hi

I know this is a stupid question.... And probably not relevant but could you guys shed some light on the DUB - STR route...
I flew it last year on a trip, and I'm trying to get back..


Is it a seasonal service? And is there any other alternative airports around stuttgart I could use to get to the city (even the train or bus to the city) form Dublin? And is the route healthy enough to continue or are
There rumours about it?

Thank you so much....

Being dropped for winter, had very bad loads, last winter loads were between 25 and 51%, down slightly on the previous winter. Would expect it back for summer 2014, loads in the summer tend to be 70-85%.

Munich, Frankfurt and Zurich are the closest other airports but both quiet a bit away. Might be worth checking out LH via FRA to fly into STR.

Does anyone know why most AF flights to/from DUB and CDG are cancelled today?
Aircraft gone tech? Weather related?

So would EI529 the last flight from CDG to DUB have any equipment change? As I know PAX from the earlier AF flights are put on to the EI529 to DUB.

Thanks very much! Trying to meet with a friend and saw that it wasnt operating and everywhere I looked I saw it was a year round service... So was a bit Baffled...
