Does anyone know if Air India have made a decision as to where their new European base is to be located?
Have T2 been enough to impress them

A few weeks ago in the press in India they said the AI had chosen DUB as their hub but nobody really knows where they will go or it they will have one.

When American Airlines resume flights between DUB-ORD next April they will be operated by a B767-300. Last summer they had a B763 but it only started on the route on June 10th.

Seriously dangerous at DUB today one of the lads said braking action was actualy dead on 0% when checkers where out, Cork's main RWY got de-iced every hour from 5.30 upto 9 and then again around lunchtime, on top of that there was a tech fault with EI882 to AGP!!

Jamie, where did you see that article about Air India? This is the most recent that I could find:

Aer Lingus rule out zero fares in future | Irish Examiner

But there's no confirmation from the Indian media there but I am aware that Declan Collier & co. had agreed to operate some of the facilities in the airport in New Delhi which may set the ball rolling.

If it does come off, it would be interesting to see what aircraft they'll operate the flights with. Can't see their A310's being a runner.

I know we've had this discussion before, but when you think back to the April ash cloud and how Etihad were able to use B777's to get to Abu Dhabi from DUB, would the 747-400's or 777-200's that Air India have be able to get to India and the US in one go from DUB?

We're all aware that either fuel, cargo or passengers have to be sacrificed for these aircraft to do their magic from DUB so bearing in mind the above and the fact that Air France & Singapore Airlines operate B747 cargo planes to DUB, does anyone know could Air India put enough juice in their current planes to attain the above or is the Gulf the furthest you would get?

On a different note, looks like Cyprus Airlines will be operating the flights to Larnaca this coming summer along with Thomson - could this be the start of something more permanent as they were on the DAA's hitlist recently?

At DUB, ORK & SNN (DAA - Airports) all de-icing, runway clearing and general clearing of the airfield is privately contracted by Airport-Int Corp.

More problems at the airport. The airport has reopened but fuelling companies refusing to operate on the ramp, claiming hazardous conditions. According to Ryanair website.

I just hope its the shot in the arm that we have all been waiting for at the Airport. May just be the thing to make carriers take a look at Dublin again!
