Anyone know what's become of EI-DAA? WFU? Parked temporarily? Major overhaul? I've been on this plane a few times between Boston and Dublin and was just curious.

In the hope that this is on topic - Went through T2 in LHR over Christmas. Wow! 35 minutes to board caused mainly by he face recognition gizmo at the gate coupled with large bag syndrome. Lounge is better with bery inadequate food offerings and the showers are really just token - bad water pressure, flimsy towels and a shower cubicle with nowhere to put the shampoo, shower gel etc. Obviously fitted out by someone who prefers baths!

Interesting to say the least, I do get that taxi times from pier B to rwy 28 are pretty short, ive often heard of pilots finishing off their checklists while lining up on 28, never mind on E1! I think it was just one of those days @ DUB, when it's busy it's BUSY, and the exact opposite the rest of the time.
However, IMO the BA pilot(s) professionalism in this case should be questioned, they were instructed to vacate E1 to 34 after stalling the controller numerous times! You are either ready or not, you cannot be fully ready as they said and yet still be completing checklists! They were lucky she let them go!
Having said all that.... maybe this sort of thing happens all the time, just this time it was caught on Live ATC..
They joys of aviation..

The phone call they have to make on landing at Heathrow is serious and something normally reserved for private pilots who do not know better - a Speedbird crew causing issues on a busy day at Dublin will have a bit of explaining to do!

Does anyone know the outcome? Would this be a fireable offence or back to training?

|Quoting kaitak (Reply 16):|
I think the Facebook page was a bit OTT in saying the BA crew was rude; they were certainly unprofessional; they would not do this at LHR. Can you imagine asking the LHR Ground frequency; "sorry, we're not ready, can we wait a moment?!"

Ch aviation have confirmed that EI will lease an Omni 767-200 for the SNN-BOS route. Will be great to have the extra capacity this year from SNN. Now if we could only see it in EI colours!
|Quoting clydenairways (Reply 32):|
As reported last year, it's only for a few weeks.
|Quoting SURFER (Reply 38):|
N234ax is currently operating for Bolivia de aviacon and has been partially painted in their colours the tail and engines with the fuselage keeping the Omni grey, so maybe we will see something similar with EI shamrock tail and titles perhaps.
|Quoting 321neo (Reply 31):|
It's interesting to note that they also add that bringing in the 762 was a result of the cancellation of the plan to bring A330-200 EI-EWR back in to the fleet.
|Quoting Eagleboy (Reply 41):|
B767 is to offer extra capacity during the busy peak season out of SNN.
This also "free's up" a SNN based B757 to operate the early morning DUB-JFK.
MSN 330 will return to EI in May to allow the extra frequencies on MCO and SFO.
S15 schedule requires 8 A330's, with only 2 days per week with only 7 departures.
|Quoting bx737 (Reply 33):|
EI have sourced an additional A330-300
|Quoting bx737 (Reply 35):|
According to the September Analyst presentation (available on corporate.aerlingus.com) that there will be three A319s in 2016 and they are to be fully phased out by 2017. The presentation also shows an additional A321 in 2016 and a fourth 757/ narrow body long haul aircraft.
|Quoting bx737 (Reply 35):|
I have heard no rumours about getting rid of the A319s before that though.
|Quoting Aer Lingus (Reply 45):|
The A319 are a lovely fleet addition for us enthusiasts but those ex IB birds are dreadful past row 6 for legroom. Less comfortable than FR 738s.
|Quoting Frostyj (Reply 46):|
Ryanair planes ARE comfortable I don't know what that comparison was about. It is Easyjet that are uncomfortable!
