The Ryanair offer for Aer Lingus

A good read about FR and EI DUB operations.

Does anyone have any more information on the T1 renovation? Seems to be a pretty big job.

I've heard the total cost of revamp is 20m+. Entire retail space is to be changed including the fairly new T1X...

Was all that not put on hold a while ago. Pier B needs a full revamp. Stevek any idea if check in hall will be changed. The plan was to have it like T2 and not have the current islands. The amount of desks not being used is un real.

Well half the B pier duty free shop has gone and the House Of Ireland, not to mention Easons is hardly open so not a lot of retail really to revamp!

This revamp will be mainly the main retail area. The check in area I haven't heard anything about recently. B will loose its retail area at some point next year current set up is only temporary from what I've been lead to believe.

Hi folks - will be arriving off TS on a Sun at 0725 in a few weeks with an infant who may or may not have enjoyed himself. Any recommendations for decent places/options to catch one's breath at DUB T1 Arrivals? I looked at that airport genie thing but the arrivals option is basically just someone to cart your stuff.

I'd say it would be the same aircraft that Bmi used (A319,A320,A321)

The BA DUB-LHR winter schedule is now loaded - 4/day but with a lot of chopping and changing of off-peak times, which makes it look like a combination of long-haul feed and slot-sitting rather than a genuinely competitive point-to-point schedule. In addition, the taxes and charges come to something like 61 each way so the cheapest possible round-trip is about 122.

The first official British Airways flight to LHR will be on Saturday morning, it will be operated by BA aircraft and crew. It will arrive DUB at 09.15 and depart DUB at 10.50. Over the next few weeks all flights will be officially operated by BA.

Although not scheduled to happen until saturday, BA operated one of the LHR flights this morning even though it was scheduled to be operated by BMI.

Thats incorrect all ba flights today operated by bmi aircaft. dont forget that the ba flight price includes everyting. bags checkin seat alocation and free food and drinks onboard so the fares in real terms are actually rather cheap.

Sorry i'm confused- are bmi staff still working on bmi or ba metal, and do you get the full ba service if the metal is bmi and operated by bmi crew-cos technically you've booked through ba website?
