BACF will be operating EI mainline flights in this case? Must be tight on A/C over the summer period?

Anybody know why Aer Lingus flight between Gatwick and Knock stopped in Dublin en route tonight? Resulted in a very late arrival into Knock...?

British Airways mulls Chinese airline alliance - MarketWatch
However, Mr. Walsh ruled out possible acquisitions for IAG in Asia or in Europe to boost connections between the two regions. "Our strategy within Asia is organic growth," he said, noting that the group may also look at expanding Aer Lingus into Asia amid growing trade activities for Ireland with China and Japan.

Mr. Walsh said British Airways currently has no plans to launch more destinations in China. Apart from twice daily services between Hong Kong and London's Heathrow Airport, British Airways also operates daily services from Heathrow to Beijing, as well as 10 weekly flights to Shanghai and up to five weekly services to Chengdu.
Another site reports first A350-941, RR engines has been given LN 197 on production line.

Another site suggesting EI moving in to TC at BOS which is where JetBlue are based on 2 May.

Sign that the codeshare won't be touched?

Also lounge passengers in ORD given an upgrade from AF/KLM one to BA J class one

The terminal move in BOS is probably more to do with the airport authority wanting to free up space at the international terminal for a carrier that doesn't have CBP pre clearance.

It's in Madrid but Vueling must go find a different one as Aer Lingus will not take the one offered apparently. They have the A319 due to Vueling as back up and will likely stay until they receive the A320 requested.

Any insight as to the reason for wanting a different aircraft?

EI at BHD

Strong rumours are continuing that EI will pull out of BHD by next summer at the latest leaving BA to do LHR on its own.

I hope they are not from the same reliable source. It could well happen but such a decision would unlikely o f been made at this time.

No, but they are not happen with it.

Other news:

IAG is examining the feasibility of allocating a small fleet of Airbus A380s to its Spanish division Iberia and possibly an aircraft with its recently acquired Irish arm Aer Lingus.

Willie Walsh, IAG's chief executive, tells Flightglobal that the group, which also owns British Airways, is considering expanding its A380 fleet and that its structure would allow it to create sub-fleets at its other airlines.

EI representative said at the launch of LAX yesterday that about a third of their TATL pax ex DUB originate at another airport, big change from the days when they used to have to lease out 2 of the 3 747s to BCAL and LAN Chile.

That pilot who brought the idea of EIR to Kavanagh and Mueller deserves one hell of a bonus.

The person who suggested ending the Shannon stopover should also get an award as that prevented Aerlingus from developing a hub at Dublin for many decades.

Chances are the DUB hub would not have happened. Aer Lingus was a corrupt, government run airline based on parish pump politics. Aer Rianta was even worse.

It just happened Aer Lingus lost this corruption shortly after the end of the Shannon Stopover, so in essence it may have actually benefited the hub at DUB.

Anyway at this stage, its gone over 8 years and if you still have sour grips over it you really need another past time.

I remember there were days Delta used to land in SNN, backtrack and depart straight away just to fulfil the stopover requirement.
