Only just hearing about the new cadet pilot programme today. Well done Aer Lingus, it's one of the best around, if not the best. Great to see the airline investing in it's staff and not burying aspiring pilots under a mountain of debt.

Any ideas when the new T/A routes are to be announced? Are they in talks with Aer Contractors for more 757s?

Looking at the timetable for summer 2015 it looks as though the Newcastle route has a massive reduction from up to 3 daily to only 1 daily and no Cork service. I thought the Dublin route had reached a 7,000 pax milestone in August and was doing well.

Is this information correct or are the timetables not finalised yet?

EI-EWR will be rejoining the fleet in 2015 growth, aircraft flown to Dublin earlier under its current registration 9M-XAD, A330-200. Had previously operated until 2009 but left once SFO/IAD was cancelled if I am correct.

One of the A332s is still going to Novair for the winter, so this will allow SFO to continue. What new route will that aircraft serve when it gets back though?

The A332 going away for winter will not effect SFO operation. Remember this winter there is the additional 332 that was SNN based last year. EWR not starting until 2015.

Interesting. So are they just planning on leaving it parked up beside hangar 6 for the next few months or will they just use EWR for the Novair contract?

Its not fully EIs yet, departed at 11.03 yesterday and continues to operate for Saudi. Just a flying visit possibly for an inspection of some sorts from EI?

Do the EI A330s operate any short haul operations?

Faro and Malaga 2 days a week each as far as I remember, summer only. Uses the downtime between the early east coast arrivals and the afternoon departures.

They're also used for some direct (EI codes, rather than the Novair stuff) charter work in winter, and some rare substitutions - e.g. there was a 330 to CDG the night of the World Cup playoff a number of years ago.

They operate the daily 07.00 to AGP for the full summer schedule and this year twice weekly 07.30 to FAO between May and September (likely to increase in 2015). They have also operated to Nice regularly a few years ago. The schedules don't really allow time for other routes.

Cian got there first!

There is a rumour, that with an extra 330 next summer, it may operate the early morning Rome next summer also.

Most likely will happen, they have being sending out 2 A320s in the mornings during peak summer once or twice a weekly for the last 2 summers. Only problem is one of the afternoon T/A may need to go slightly lather.

Looks like Thursday is the long haul news day. Lots of speculation but IAD may be back so might be time to say bye bye to United if it happens.

Halifax has being cancelled, appears the region don't want the Shamrocks flying to protect WestJet.

330 may be replacing 4 or 7 weekly YYZ instead.

Also the A321 LR is going ahead so probably a very likely 757 replacement.

Are they after any more 757s from ACL? Only 1 new A330 or 2?

1 757 on the way. Agreement for a fifth when they want.
Just EI-EWR on the 330 side for the foreseeable.

I reckon the majority of future expansion will be through stobart and ASL, unfortunately.

Think its more a case of waiting for the 350s for their own growth. Some will replace 330 but they will have extras. They will probably get the A321 for SNN in future to.

Third daily JFK with the extra 752. Interesting to see the times they pick.
