According to CH Aviation, ''the Irish carrier will lease either N225AX (msn 30434) or N234AX (msn 30436) to cover the drop in capacity brought on by the cancellation of plan to bring back A330-200 EI-EWR (cn 330) into the fleet.''
I hadn't read that report. My understanding was that the B767 was planned 2 months when the EI-EWR plan was still a runner. It dropped into DUB for 2 days for a pre-lease inspection. My info came from EI engineering "she'll be back sometime after March" was the quote.
As of early Dec the plan was a lease for 12 weeks, with the B757 operating those 12 weeks ex-DUB. The CH Aviation article states the lease is for 6 months...why would EI need the B767 up until Dec 2015?

As an aside, two A330s (DUO , EAV) headed down to BOD today for their check ups and presumably installation of their new thrones.
I saw that the B757 operated the late DUB-JFK for the first time today. Was trying to figure out which 2 aircraft were first to go. 5-6 weeks till their return?
