Talking Extra A330 s15

Well two extra flights to SFO using a 200 plus 1on Mco plus 4 on IAD means it's fully tasked?

With the new re-jigging of the schedule now taken into account, there now remains a two weekly (Tues/Sat), A330-200 slot for a transatlantic route. I doubt they would use a two weekly slot to launch another destination. I think more or less they will use it for extra capacity on Europe in the evening after the A332 is back from FAO that morning (On Tues/Sat), either that or maintenance although I doubt the latter following the trends of schedules in the last few years.

They always least a minimum of one free day in schedules. Having 2 is needed as its to risky with SFo as a tech fault in SFO puts the schedule out by 24 hrs.

If IAD does well I can see a fifth weekly added peak season.

They can't afford to max schedules out when a hub is being operated. It costs them to much.

They got stung.a couple of times last summe.

2 gaps were kept during summer 14 and I think not certain it was 3 in summer 13 schedules also. You are right they did the odd rescue to Europe and replaced some delayed T/A departures. Majority of the time they were given a rest though!

This sums it up nicely

[url]http://www.irishtimes.com/business/sectors/transport-and-tourism/aer-lingus-announces-new-dublin-to-washington-route-1.1989108[/

SNN-BOS "increases capacity" which is obviously the 767. Speaking of which, whenever I've seen 767s contracted in by EI on trans Atlantic it's been either Omni or Atlas. Last time I remember clearly was when EI-ORD and EI-LAX went bang on the same day

So EI trans Atlantic in peak summer (open to correction here): DUB-JFK 3 x daily: 2 xA332/3, 1 x B752, SNN-JFK 6 x weekly B752, DUB-BOS 2 x Daily A332/3, SNN-BOS 1 x Daily B763, DUB-ORD 2 x daily A332/3, DUB-SFO 1 x daily A332, DUB-YYZ 1 x daily B752, DUB-IAD 4 x weekly A332, DUB-MCO 4 x weekly A332

Think they will win it however no way will BFS get 20 million out of it if it was lost.

Wonder was a change in management at BFS placed into the contract.

I don't think they have a snowball in the sahara's chance of 25 M but I don't see it as not going to cost something.

Change of management is probably not relevant unless New management acted in a way that EI would say that they had no other option but to cancel.

Even then they will need to show that after making representations to new management nothing was done, leaving no option but to cancel.

I think like most disputes this will not go to Judgement, will see inside of court room but parties will come up with a negotiated settlement.

Flybe Codeshare

I see EI codes are now on Flybe services from DUB. One anomaly I've spotted: Inverness and Southampton are live on the EI website however, Exeter is not.

I have managed to get a quote for an EI fare from EXT-JFK with Skyscanner for GBP3419 return (I'm guessing the full economy fare!) Anyone in EI know when EXT fares will be loaded on the EI website. Aer Lingus were very vague on Twitter and Flybe's response was something about 'the summer timetable not being finalised yet'???

I assume someone just has to load the correct fares in the system if the codes have already be added....? Or is there some other reason for the delay.

There had been no change in owners or management at BFS when EI made the decision to leave.

A passengers is trying to sue Aer Lingus for $1 million dollars who is distressed at the loss of a engagement ring on a JFK-AMS flight.


They are also being sued $75,000 by another American passenger for allergically being hit by baggage on a HEL-DUB flight.


I mean what planet do Americans live on!

It's predominately in American culture to sue rather then deliberate unfortunately.

The role of Chairman isn't has involved in the daily running of an organisation as that of CEO. At a minimum, it's just running the board meetings, then starts to increase depending on the needs of the other board members/directors/share holders/other CxO level executives.
