Be a good idea to get on pronto with the 2nd runway, please, else when the grand plan meets reality, trouble ahead.
Yes, I accept that the pot should not call the kettle black! LHR's lack of runway capacity is a mistake best not repeated.

There genuinely does not seem to be any tardiness with that if noises coming out of the DAA are anything to go by. The stipulation set by the regulator was that construction could commence once 25 Million pax per annum was reached. We'll probably hit that in 2015.

Hearing that indeed the plan is grand.... grander than most would believe.

If the DAA are watching... they could make one really big improvement to T1? By actually having the same floor throughout check in and arrivals? It still looks like two separate buildings!

Having a quick look and they are gone however they have also adjusted something else which points to a third route been announced as well, it's a route already served from Dublin and perhaps it will not have a Berlin connection and why the cat is not out of the bag yet.

Will post what the route will be if they don't announce it this week. To end any speculation it is 100% not DUB-PHL so that leaves the other 5 as possible contenders.

I'm going to take a punt on Halifax (seeing as there was a buzz about it way back in 2014), and after that Montreal perhaps because the TS service seems too sparse from DUB, and the YHZ service not too sparse but just too inflexible. The only reason I raise the Canadian routes is because it all seems too YYZ-centric on the Aer Lingus and Rouge fronts and other routes much forgotten.

Agreed, i heard it was close but the regional marketing support (Canadian side) was only available for one route, and the Westjet route from St Johns got it.
It's a pity because EI could provide a better range of connections than Airpost.

YHZ being discounted then, I side with BestWestern in saying YUL and if there's one destination I'd be surprised about EI entering into, it'd be EWR because with the improvements EI has made at JFK Terminal 5, I can't see them wanting to dilute the New York market any more than serving BDL might. ATL may work, but DL are not exactly displaying the fullest confidence in not providing a year-round service, same goes for CLT really - plus with AA being part of the joint venture with IAG, would this be the first target for conversion to green spirit?

Ok, it could be EWR, DUB-EWR was removed and reinstated yearerday like it was not possible to book DUB-LAX (connections)

If it happens prehaps the B752 may be aplit between Heartford and Newark 3 and 4 weekly). Will be interesting to see what they announce.

As for Canada I would love to see Air Canada Rouge add something or even TS which have GLA/MAN linked with multiple cities.

While I can completely understand BDL not being daily, initially anyway, I don't see the point in having EWR as less than daily. The extra costs involved versus just having an extra 4 flights a week to JFK don't make sense. And up against a daily UA flight, twice daily in summer peak, they'll struggle to get any high yield traffic which are opting for EWR specifically over JFK

Shamrock604, I wonder if this grand plan will include a pair of new long runways facing the prevailing wind?
And a large new terminal building or buildings between them, in the modern way?

Currently, cross winds on the existing shortish runway seem a nightmare?

Such a development would effectively create a new airport, and could be constructed without turning the existing into a construction site. So quicker, less chaos and relatively less expensive to build?

IAG has bags of cash just now, perhaps they can be tapped on the shoulder for some funding? They only want a 12% return to shareholders. Although the Government can borrow for less, it might make the difference between a nice new airport and a superb new airport.

LOL - Let's not go crazy - I was referring to the IAG plan, which I'm led to believe is quite exciting - not the DAA's.

I cannot imagine any new runway scenario such as you describe - for one, the noise problem that would be created for Suburban North west and West Dublin, and indeed for Swords and Malahide in North Dublin would be totally unacceptable. The cross winds on 10/28 are not really as big issue as you seem to believe, and certainly not with the existence of Runway 16/34.

Any new terminal will IMHO be positioned between the parallel 10/28 pair. The Parallel when built is expected to be 3660m long, with the existing 10/28 extended soon after.

Yes the Aran PSO contract is being extended for a year. The €1.62 million agreement will secure scheduled flights to and from the three islands until the end of next September.

Most likely that the original contract winner will take action for damages.

Aer Lingus appears to have loaded 2 new sets of flight numbers for Trans-Atlantic routes, each shows 6 weekly flights in 2016

Assuming this is LAX and BDL. Or the possible EWR? I would've thought LAX would be 5 weekly at the start.

Another record breaking month at Dublin Airport: Passenger Numbers Up 14% In September:

Just over 2.3 million passengers passed through Dublin Airport in September, which was a 14% increase on the same period last year.

The growth in passenger numbers made last month the busiest September in Dublin Airport's 75 year history.

Definitely leading the way to the 25 million mark.

Fantastic news. They definitely have seemed keen on geting A330-300s instead of -200s. So, what does this mean? 1 for LAX and the other for additional frequencies across the TATL network..or another new route?

Thanks.

Looking up the weather site, it is clear that the Dublin prevailing wind is not as I assumed, but pretty much on the nose as Westerly. Which means the two parallel runways 10/28 (100/280) are good.

http://www.met.ie/climate/wind.asp

I remember that not too long ago there was trouble with strong cross wind for a few days which caused many diversions. Possibly this is another weather issue, a coastal climate (as opposed to a Continental climate) has strong winds. Mainland UK gets this Atlantic Blast, but Ireland to some extent protects us from the worst of it.

There is another good website which has also opened my eyes to all the background in the two runway project

http://www.aviationreg.ie/_fileuploa...e/2009-03-02_daa_cip_2010-2014.pdf

It seems that the existing very short 16/14 runway will disappear in due course.
Anyway, all success with this excellent project.

I wonder what airline was suppose to get these if IAG didnt acquire EI.

I wonder with these new airplanes could we see a introduction of Y+ and also a new Y cabin too. I doubt very much there will be a new business class cabin.

That may not now happen. A number of concerns were raised particularly after some harsh recent winters when 16/34 became vital to the continued operation fo the airport.

Sorry Shamrock604, do not get your point at all.
I lived near Milford Haven (South West Wales) for 3 years and my place of work was at 400ft AMSL, so I know about the Atlantic Blast. Maybe these days there is a divergence in our two languages, like there is between American English and the real thing?

Very interesting and positive news! However, they're at 1,619 now and at a production rate of about 7 a month, those two are a good year and a half away, so EI will still need to lease acft for next Summer.

Quoting A60Stock (Reply 190):

Cost wise probably not worth it as an "addition" to the fleet but perhaps it could replace one of the current 332's if they needed to.

Ah right, the only A330-202 in EI's fleet I can think of that may be a more suitable candidate for replacement is EI-DAA, from the point of view of reports that the IFE is terminally on the blink and that the paint job is worn - not that these are really good excuses when weighed up against going out to wherever in Turkey that -302 is stored, getting it back to DUB, and going through the rigmarole of ripping out Afriqiyah's cabin (which seems a terrible waste in itself seeing as it has never been used) and replacing it with EI's, and of course, a new paint job.

On a different note, do you reckon the third JFK rotation may make a return for Summer 16?

Sorry Shamrock604, do not get your point at all.
I lived near Milford Haven (South West Wales) for 3 years and my place of work was at 400ft AMSL, so I know about the Atlantic Blast. Maybe these days there is a divergence in our two languages, like there is between American English and the real thing?

LOL, its nothing to do with the weather!

Quoting EI121 (Reply 174):
Aer Lingus appears to have loaded 2 new sets of flight numbers for Trans-Atlantic routes, each shows 6 weekly flights in 2016

Any idea of the numbers. DUB-LAX was 145/144 back in the day.

Quoting EI121 (Reply 183):
I wonder with these new airplanes could we see a introduction of Y+ and also a new Y cabin too. I doubt very much there will be a new business class cabin.

Doubt we would see any change to cabin config until the A350's come into service.

Both EI-EZV AND 'ZW have been repainted at SNN and are now back at DUB in full EI colours.

Airbus A320 -214 1983 EI-EZW Aer Lingus ferried 08oct15 SNN-DUB after paint into standard cs ex I-EEZF
Airbus A320 -214 2001 EI-EZV Aer Lingus ferried 12oct15 SNN-DUB after paint into standard cs ex I-EEZG

We had suspected 'EZV would be, but not 'EZW. Two more frames to look out for!

Mainland UK gets this Atlantic Blast, but Ireland to some extent protects us from the worst of it.

Now, I know that was just an unfortunate slip of the tongue, and we wont fight over it, but you do know Ireland isnt in the UK, so hence isnt the Mainland ) lol


May I give myself another chance to solve this puzzle? Foreign languages are often a closed book to Brits like me, but it should be possible to write in English without offending folks.

By "Mainland UK", I mean the island comprising the nations of England, Scotland and Wales.
By "Ireland", I mean the island of Ireland comprising the nation of Republic of Ireland and the Northern Ireland part of UK.
By "us" I mean we who live in Mainland UK.

Shamrock604, does this help?

Aer Lingus, now part of IAG, is to announce details of its new summer schedule within a couple of weeks. It's widely anticipated that it will relaunch its route between Dublin and Los Angeles, and also open another route to the US east coast.

Miami and Philadelphia are among the cities it has been considering for a new east coast route.

Not long now; I suspect your wait (and ours!) for the new cities should be over within a week. I really do hope MIA gets the nod; if not this year, then next. LAX does seem to be a dead cert. MIA would make a lot of sense; a late afternoon departure from DUB (c.14.30) could get into MIA at about 18.00 and connect with some AA flights to South America.

Anyway, we're knocking on the door of 200 posts and like a Qatari 777 at a certain airport, it's time for us to pull up and climb without taking too many of the runway lights with us (this time!) ..
