Quoting BestWestern (Reply 99):
I presume the omni aircraft will stay in an all economy format.

I'd say they could have a stock of premium seats so they can change the aircraft config depending on the lease customers requests, they revert the aircraft back at the end of lease.
A lot of these ACMI operators keep some additional seat socks, so there is no extra investment required for this.

The leased 767 will be operated by Omni International for the 12 week period next summer.

Interesting move by EI to add capacity to SNN-BOS using a leased B767. It would be nice to see it painted in EI colours buty hardly seems worthwhile if it is only for 12 weeks. My only concern is onboard product quality. I cannot imagine that Omni's on board product is up to much but then again, I have never flown with them. Has anyone here ever flown on one of their aircraft? I also wonder if there was anything to the rumoura that EI were seeking another leased B757 to add capacity via an extra frequency but opted for the B767 when they could not get one?

Pleasant flight DUB-LCY with WX yesterday. Friendly check in agent and great crew. Did hear them say the loads were lighter than usual so wonder if BA/BE are already having an effect.

So overall a good experience and it will be interesting to see how they all do. The fares are great though !

I really don't think there is room for three airlines on these route and personally I think WX stands to lose most. BA has the best aircraft on the route (RJ85 -v- E-170/190? No competition, from a pax comfort perspective!), and of course lots of onward connections. BE is a big enough carrier and can probably stay on the route for a good while, though I think that its reliability will probably turn some business travellers off.

For WX, this is its key route, along with DUB-CDG, so I think that in a long fight, it stands to be the big loser. I see that the fares are great, never a phrase I thought I'd hear in relation to WX and LCY-DUB, so I wonder if they can make a profit with these fares.

Might be nice if they kept that silvery exterior with just the EI titles and shamrock on the tail. They'd need to get rid of the dark red though.

Also I'd say EI would need a few Business Class seats - contrary to popular belief, EI does have a Business Class market at SNN. The Interim Statement mentioned that the 767 would have 210 seats. OY's 763s are currently fitted with 276 seats in an all-Y layout so would this suggest that EI are putting on Business Class seats? Would it take the removal of 66 Y seats to make room for three or four rows of J?

OY's 762s are 216 seats, all-Y and have PTVs at each seat.

It does look quite nice but that is a B777 cabin. I did a quick search and found two cabin pictures of Omni B767 interiors. One of them is from 2013 and looks quite nice, modern and comfortable but the other is from 2011 and looks really dated and old fashioned. I hope the aircraft EI leases has the cabin shown in the 2013 picture.

Despite being a much older aircraft, I think the 767 is still one of the nicest aircraft to fly on. Give me a 7 abreast 767 any day, over a 10 abreast 777!

Quoting RandWKOP (Reply 79):
So are you saying the BA 787 Y class is dirty or was the seat / experience bad?

I get to see rather a lot of the BA787 WT cabin and can sadly confirm from the first moment i stepped aboard I was somewhat underwhelmed and finding it increasingly frustrating that BA are failing to address the very real damage that the tight squeeze in the cabin is doing to the brand. Assurances have been given that the 787-9 will have some of the issues addressed (doubt it will be a 2-4-2 config but perhaps a slightly wider seat OR more legroom..they certainly won't offer both) but we will have to wait and see what happens there.

As for the comments regarding some of Aer Lingus aircraft being below standard from a cleanliness perspective all I will say is this. The airline I work for operate some very old 744's but also some very very new Boeing aircraft. The newer ones are already beginning to look tired and grubby every bit as much as the jumbos. Run your finger along a recess anywhere and on any aircraft (except maybe the fresh off the line A380s and 787s) in the cabin and a thick thick layer of dust will appear. Look down the side of the club seats, heck even the carpets are filthy! My experience of Aer Lingus is I have always found the planes well kept and more cared for than my own carrier. I recently flew to MCO in Business and found the plane above standard, not exceptional but defiantly cleaner than a carrier often considered superior to Aer Lingus!
My views are my own and do not reflect any other person or organisation.

They're being offered for lease according to Jethros Air Fleets. I think the plan is for RE to eventually fly an all ATR 72-600 fleet. Not sure what that means for the -200s and -500s.

Speaking of the 757, it looks like there was an air rage incident inbound to SNN involving Dolores O'Riordan this morning.

"Ms O’Riordan has been arrested and is currently detained in a garda station following an alleged air rage incident on a transatlantic flight.
Musician Dolores O’Riordan allegedly stamped on a flight attendant’s foot, headbutted a garda and then spat in his face."

Flybe and Aer Lingus sign codeshare


http://www.businesstraveller.com/new...lybe-and-aer-lingus-sign-codeshare

Flybe and Aer Lingus have signed a codeshare agreement, to start immediately.

The deal allows Flybe passengers travelling from regional airports — Exeter, Inverness, Southend and Southampton — to access, via Dublin, Aer Lingus destinations in North America and Canada.

Aer Lingus' North American routes include ten daily flights to Boston, New York, San Francisco, Orlando, Chicago and Toronto.

Passengers travelling on Flybe franchise partner flights — from Donegal with Loganair and Flybe's joint operation from Southend with Stobart Air — to Dublin can also benefit from the codeshare.

Dublin airport provides US customs pre-clearance, meaning passengers can bypass the often lengthy queues on arrival in the US.

Paul Simmons, Flybe's CCO, said: "Our new codeshare agreement further demonstrates our commitment to providing seamless connectivity from the regions of the UK, which means passengers do not have to face long road or rail journeys to the UK's south east hub airports."

Stephen Kavanagh, Aer Lingus' chief strategy and planning officer, added: "The combination of our services will give both airlines increased network reach and will help Aer Lingus to further develop our transatlantic hub at Dublin to the benefit of customers in the UK and the US."

Flybe now has codeshare agreements with six airlines — Air France, British Airways, Etihad, Finnair (see news, September 11), KLM and Aer Lingus — and interline agreements with 17 carriers including Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, Delta, Air Portugal and Qatar Airways.

Yes, I was thinking there might be scope for changing the schedules. For example, in the summer, the EI137 (DUB-BOS) and AG135 (SNN-BOS) flights depart within 10 minutes of each other, arriving in BOS about the same time. To give passengers in the catchment of both DUB and SNN more choice, why not change the times by having say, the SNN flight depart at 14:00. That way, EI would have departures from Ireland to BOS departing at ~12:00, ~14:00 and ~16:00 and arrivals into Ireland at ~05:00, ~06:30 and ~08:00 - more evenly distributed. Although this might interfere with connection opportunities with B6 at the other side.

The early arrival is suited to maximise the number of onward connections that can be made in the morning rush ex Dublin. The later JFK flight the 108 gets in at a more 'normal' time for Dublin destination pax. Reminds me years ago of the 104 arriving via Shannon at 0800, when onwards traffic was more by accident than design.

BE is a big enough carrier and can probably stay on the route for a good while, though I think that its reliability will probably turn some business travellers off.

I agree, from one airline to three overnight is going to trash yields. It would seem not just to LCY, EI is reducing frequency to LHR too. I wonder where these frequencies will turn up, of if they are leased slots due to go back. The thing about LCY is potentially weather disruption. If you are on BA, its a fair assumption that they would transfer you over to LHR, preferably on BA metal, but I suppose EI at a push. Im not sure BE will have any significant IRROPS policy. Just a case of refund and/or try again later. What do WX do?

Im not sure they are wholly bothered, to be honest. The new Short Haul cabins are pleasing to they eye, but certainly not to the knee. 30" in Business and 29" in Y on the A319, thats worse than FR and equivalent to U2. Admittedly the seats are comfortable and the seat pocket is out of the way, but it does demonstrate that BA don't intend to use personal space as a USP going forward.

Quoting EIBusiness (Reply 83):
Brian; how often have you travelled AL Long Haul in J recently? The product has been on the decline now solidly for 18 months. Before that; I would have argued it was one of the best on the North Atlantic; especially around the 2010/2011 period.

Twice in the past twelve months. Personally, I think the food and wine is as good as its ever been, I agree the menu does not change, but sometimes the devil you know is better. It's straightforward, simple food done well, which is what Irish cuisine is all about anyway. I genuinely believe EI business class catering is very close to OS, who are by far and away the best business class cabin I have travelled on, Do&Co catering and an in-flight chef, it is a real treat. I rate EI equivalent because the food is more to my personal taste.

Quoting kaitak (Reply 97):
If EI does finally turn down the 330Neo, it will be interesting to see what the major factor was.

Its interesting that you don't want to see the 330NEO at EI. Personally I see it as the perfect aircraft for anything the -200 does now. It would complement the A359 nicely, which is a fair bit bigger and would probably have a lot of Y class seats to fill in EI layout. I think the gap between a "757 size" aircraft and the A359 is too much. East Coast is basically mid-haul, I don't think there will ever be a better aircraft for EI than the A330NEO for seat-mile costs. If EI has no ambition of going East from DUB I would really question the value of the A350 at all. Would they be hauling around dead weight, especially in the winter?

Tonight was the relaunch of Shannon Duty Free. Up to now it had still been administered by The Loop which of course is a brand owned by the DAA. The relaunch event was "invite-only" with 10% off all shopping for attendees, along with passengers who happened to be passing through at the time. Among the "distinguished" guests was yours truly. I was extremely impressed with the lengths they went to for this - free booze, food, samples from suppliers i.e. Clonakilty sausages, Baileys chocolates, local cheeses etc.

About 200 turned up and entertainment was also provided. Neil Pakey (CEO of Shannon Group) and Rose Hynes (chairperson) gave speeches and reiterated that the foundation of global Duty Free as we know it today all started off here at Shannon by Dr. Brendan O'Regan in 1947. The airport will actively market this in its branding.

Everyone who attended received a complimentary goody bag that consisted of a Tipperary Crystal Shannon Airport-branded dome paperweight, a Patrick Francis scarf and a Baileys Truffle chocolate bar.

The management group is doing a great job. Hopefully one of their next projects will be to fill the departure lounge with more retail/food concessions - its so big and empty; if commerically viable it could do with maybe a fast food outlet, coffee shop a la Starbucks, a clothing retailer etc. - even if opening times were limited to morning/early afternoon when the bulk of the flights depart. They were actively working on this last year but it seems to have gone quiet again.

As an aside, October traffic at SNN is up 28% on last year. Hopefully the positive growth keeps up throughout the winter.

Evening

2 quick points / questions:

1) Flew with BA on the LCY-DUB-LCY route over the weekend. The 6pm flight out of LCY on Friday night and the 7.10am out of DUB this morning - both packed - not a spare seat to be had. I can see them up gauging those peak flights to the E190 if that continues. I see Flybe coming off the route given the turboprop v jet argument first unless they offer very cheap fares.

2) United B777-200 on the remotes this morning at DUB - am guessing a tech issues over the weekend?

I also noticed on MAN-DUB, options with EI mainline are reasonable at £55 each way, but EIR flights are £200-£300 each way? Error or actual prices?!?

Just heard big news from a very reliable source re: a new route announcement but I can't say anything - it pains me! I'm very surprised though.

Everyone who attended received a complimentary goody bag that consisted of a Tipperary Crystal Shannon Airport-branded dome paperweight, a Patrick Francis scarf and a Baileys Truffle chocolate bar.

Result! Scarf not too bad looking (not my style however) I got a Patrick Francis tie as part of an EI special event a while back....even my Dad wouldn't wear it, has't left the box!!

the foundation of global Duty Free as we know it today all started off here at Shannon by Dr. Brendan O'Regan in 1947. The airport will actively market this in its branding.

Good point to highlight in my opinion.

From DUB or SNN? Existing carrier or new? Long haul or short?

Using the 2x weekly downtime in the current 330 utilisation or another craft?

For some reason I don't think it's USA or EI but just a gut feeling

Doubt it, EI need the downtime for weekly MX as well as having a bit of slack for disruption recovery.

Was actually driving past by chance and saw it depart.

It looks like it had a small RTO as it turned off a taxi way down the runway and circled around and took off again.

Perhaps testing the engines or unexpected?
Let's fly! Unless it's on a CRJ 200, then I'll stay down here.

Perhaps!

I would guess Norwegian to BKK or Hainan or Air China to PEK.

Do you mean via another European destination, or Airline X will serve DUB, and also a separate flight to ZZZ.

So rules out EI as I thought. I'm going to guess its not Asia since its seasonal so has to be America somewhere. Can't see it being AA as they've already announced their new routes for next year. DL to SEA? UA to IAH?
