it was nice to see that over 300 former Pan Am employees chose Limerick to host their "possibly" last ever world re-union.

Yes, great to see so many still proud of a once iconic airline. Hope they have many more reunions, given that they look so young, and still fit into their uniforms, that seems likely.

Well they've been patiently waiting for years.....ever since Aer Rianta showed their hand decades ago with their future plan for the airport. Then when the McEvaddy's let them know who owned the land they suddenly got all moody about it. Don't show your master plan to other companies employees unless you own the land you plan to build on, farcical behaviour by the old Aer Rianta.

They really need a short/medium-term plan for contact stand capacity. So far, we haven't even seen a timeline for Pier F.

I imagine any Terminal 3 is at the very least a decade away.

Aer Lingus use it for all flights now, it was just LHR regularly but more recently it seems they've committed to its use at every chance they get.

EI seem to be using an airbridge for all LHR flights at SNN now too where they rarely did before (although this might be due to construction going on downstairs).

I used SNN-LHR in March, and we used the air bridge. Before then, it was back in 2005 when I flew the route, also with the airbridge. I am massively confused, how EI can not have used the airbridge so frequently, on such an important route for the airline from SNN. It sets itself apart from FR, especially with any business travellers. It makes for a better boarding experience, especially on a winter's evening in SNN!!! Plenty of wind and rain.

FR not best pleased about the extra 70 million the daa have said the runway will cost and even less happy with the IAA new tower. He however couldn't wait until after the meeting with the daa before moaning.

"Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has strongly criticised the €70m cost increase for the second parallel runway at Dublin Airport."

FR are in less of a position to throw toys out of the pram and cut ex DUB now, so I'm not sure the daa will be to worried.

One third of Aer Lingus cabin crew rely on sleep medication - report

A report by trade union IMPACT claims that rates of ill-health among Aer Lingus cabin crew are "extraordinarily high".
The Health & Wellbeing report, compiled for IMPACT by Dr Richard Wynne of the Dublin-based Work Research Centre, took place over 28 days in July 2014.

It examined health indicators among Aer Lingus cabin crew based in Dublin, Shannon and Cork, and found the rate of ill-health to be "extraordinarily high".

Almost 50pc of respondents said they had worked while sick, with 39.4pc saying they did so to avoid the company's disciplinary process, IMPACT says.

Belfast International Airport flying high as number of passengers expected to hit 5m this year

And managing director Graham Keddie has said that it could break the five million passenger barrier by the end of the year.
He also revealed to the Belfast Telegraph that the airport has capacity for another million passengers.
Passenger traffic has been boosted by increased capacity from easyJet, transatlantic airline United and holiday airlines Jet2 and Thomas Cook.
And the announcement that Ryanair is bringing eight new routes to the airport will also help to grow passenger numbers as the bulk of its flights go live in the autumn.
And combined with passenger traffic from Belfast City Airport - which is also expected to increase this year - Northern Ireland's two main airports could be flying nearly eight million passengers by the end of 2016.
The new figures show that more than 370,000 passengers travelled through the airport last month.
It was also confirmed that the upward trend was continuing, as passengers had increased by 16% since January.

More than 138,000 passengers used Dublin Airport as a hub to connect to an onward destination during the first three months of the year, a 60% increase on the same period in 2015. The number of passengers connecting from the UK and mainland Europe and transferring onwards to the United States increased by 68%. Passengers transferring in the opposite direction, from the US to Britain or the Continent, grew by 72%. “More and more passengers are choosing to use Dublin Airport to connect to the US from the UK and from the US into UK and continental European destinations,” said Dublin Airport Head of Transfer Product, Ronan Fitzsimons. Boston, New York (JFK) and Chicago are the most popular onward destinations from Dublin with an extra 65,000 connecting passengers during the first quarter of 2016. Dublin Airport has direct flights into 21 airports in the UK where the most popular connecting destinations are London Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh. Dublin-London is the busiest route in Europe and the second biggest in the world. Mr Fitzsimons said: “We are working closely with our airline partners to build Dublin Airport as a gateway. “Dublin Airport is the only major airport in Europe to offer US preclearance, which enables passengers to save time on arrival in the US by completing all the necessary immigration and customs checks prior to departure. “Dublin Airport is now fifth among European airports for the number and frequency of routes into North America behind Heathrow, Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.” He added: “All boarding gates are located under one roof between two terminals making it easier for customers to make connections to Britain, Europe and North America via Dublin. In addition our new Flight Connection Hosts will assist all our connecting passengers through our seamless first class connecting product.” Dublin Airport offers free unlimited WiFi and a free virtual digital assistant to help passengers who have onward connections. This can be accessed on any mobile device through www.dublinairport.com/dubhub Dublin Airport, which is Ireland’s key international gateway, welcomed over 5.5 million passengers through Dublin Airport in the first three months of the year, representing a 17% increase, or an extra 817,000 passengers. The Airport has direct flights to over 180 destinations in 40 countries on four continents.

Good to see solid growth off season and for those wondering it's around 30% of T/A traffic.

Official figures have yet to be released but Dublin Airport is likely to confirm shortly that increased numbers of passengers from the North chose to fly in and out of Dublin last year rather than through one of the three airports in Northern Ireland.

In 2014, a record 864,000 people shunned their local airports and travelled across the Border to fly to and from Dublin Airport. It could have been a sterling/euro exchange advantage or possibly the larger choice of direct flights on offer that may have lured them to Dublin. But Belfast International Airport managing director Graham Keddie says one “regressive” UK tax could also have been a key motivator.

Certain suburbs of Dublin may experience a temporary increase in aircraft movements over the next two weeks as a result of essential maintenance being carried out on the main runway at Dublin Airport.

Pavement maintenance work forms part of the upkeep and maintenance of the runway system at Dublin Airport and is essential for the safe operation of the airport.

The work will start tonight, Monday April 18 and will continue from 11pm to 4.30am each night until the morning of Saturday April 30. Work will not take place on Saturday or Sunday nights during these dates.

I would imagine fully loaded is a non runner on 16. Not sure if they take a penalty going to DXB, the tanks are far from full for a flight of that duration.

Personally been onboard an EK 777 departing off 34 for DXB - not a bother to her. We were airborne abeam the ATC tower. Granted, the flight was only about 60% full.

Have also departed off the same runway on an EI 330-300 to BOS which was 100% loaded. That was a little more interesting......

Performance off a given runway is subject to a number of variables - temperature, pressure, winds, runway wet or dry etc.

I was reading the thread about weither or not LH could use a smaller aircraft for long haul routes. One poster put A321LR range into GC mapper from DUB. The opportunities this aircraft opens up for EI from DUB (or Ireland, if you prefer) is astonishing. Essentially the entire Eastern Seabord of the US is within range. I think Florida might be a bridge too far, but key destinations like NYC, CHI, BOS, YYZ, etc are easily within reach. Northern and Central Africa too, if IAG are feeling particularly adventurous, although I suspect MAD would be a better hub for this. The 321LR seems to fit IAG's hubs like a glove, particularly if they want to grow long haul traffic from their primary hubs to secondary cities and their secondary hubs, like BCN, to primary cities in the US and Africa.

Didn't they just renovate their BOS lounge?

However It makes much more sense to operate out of the same terminal as JetBlue.

Clearly the JetBlue connections will continue despite the IAG deal. Personally I'd have thought they'd have consolidated with BA to use the same lounge at BOS

Ryanair in talks to feed passengers to Norwegian carrier

Ryanair will start feeding passengers to Norwegian Air Shuttle from airports including Dublin, Cork and Belfast, according to chief executive Michael O'Leary.

Mr O'Leary said Ryanair and Norwegian had reached an "agreement in principle" that will see the Irish carrier feed into the Scandinavian airline's long-haul operations out of London Gatwick. It serves a number of US destinations from the airport.

Hmm not sure I'd be willing to be the first test passengers. If there was a delay at either end I could see a somewhat mea culpa attitude and you'd be left stranded

I don't think so just JFK and LHR, from reading online BOS is a dump. Wonder if there is space in TC for a new one, I would expect they will be.

Although Id have more faith in a FR/DY connection than a BE/TCX one

JOE can produce some interesting articles, but their journalism leaves something to be desired. I would be surprised if they knew something that others didn't about a 5th 757.

I too would question joe.ie sources.
Combine reading online about there being "4 B757's in service" and then being told by EI that a new B757 is joining the fleet in May".....oh look......5 B757!
Here is the quote from the article: "....... included in five Aer Lingus B757s by mid-May."

I think that was more a renovation rather than a serious redesign a la LHR/JFK. This would be over 18 months ago too.
No chance of a new lounge happening again as the manager who pushed for it to happen under Mueller was pushed out by the current COO in EI.

Indeed. ORD is now using the BA J CLass lounge in T5.
