Indeed daily April-October to AGP, two down in AGP together on Sundays in Sep/early Oct this year. FAO twice weekly May-September. Nice served in previous years.

With possibly as many as 12 in the fleet next summer they may start popping up in other European locations. FCO, BCN and CDG seem to get quite a few transfers for EI.

There would still really only be 2 frames free to do Euro services in between. I expect FAO may see some extra flights and free up the A321 in the mornings but that's it. Rome is way to risky to send an A330, they are after getting FCO sorted this summer and I expect they won't go upsetting that. They have at times added a second morning flight out to cope and I think that's more likely than an A330 service.

Anywhere in Italy is completely packed, to few A321

Notice EI have started another round of events in the UK promoting US routes. They were in MAN and BHX earlier this week.

EI winter schedule

Tried to book Dub- Nice for January this evening. Looks like service dropped from Nov to late Feb.
Surprised not kept at 2/3 weekly as load factors respectable in previous winters.
Any particular reason for this?

anna.aero fly on the launch from BHX. Not sure about in bound load was sold out.

anna.aero joins in Hartford BDL?s BDL (Big Dublin Launch)

Loads to NCE may be good in Dec-mid Feb but yield probally isn't hence the cut back.

Some of OneWorld seem to think Nice is just a summer leisure destination, the BA service from London City is similarly ended over the winter, which inconveniences us for business traffic. There is a lot of international IT presence behind the Riviera now, and the film industry, not just the stars but myriad support services, all seem to add a good load when the services are running. There are also a significant number of international trade shows there, almost all out of season. Marseilles used to be the French commercial centre on the Mediterranean, but is slowly losing it to Nice. The number of BA services from Nice to LHR/LGW all through the winter is a bit of a clue as well.

A hundred years ago Nice was purely a winter destination. Nobody was insane enough to visit the heat of the summer.

Must admit that DY's LGW/FLL service has previously aroused my passing curiosity - as did Zoom's in years gone by - but changing airlines en-route gives me caution. In the event of flight delays or cancellations, I'd prefer such to remain the airline's problem, not mine!

That's not to mention also avoiding lugging Mrs Seafire's extensive baggage around at transfer points! After deciding to bypass BA this time, we're both happy to have chosen EI. It seems win/win all the way: much enhanced EI J service over BA's WT+, increased baggage allowance, lounge access, pre-clearance into the USA (a fantastic plus!), significant fare cost-savings and finally, no Heathrow Zoo - despite having access to BA's T5 lounge there. Good choice Seafire!
Time to share my update. Had a very good experience with EI Business Class at the end of last month GLA-DUB-MCO, which knocked BA's WT+ into a cocked hat! The scheduled 90mins at DUB was just time enough for a quick drink (although not at the EI Lounge, Mrs SF was browsing the shops...), grab some duty free and only 10mins to pre-clear into the USA - the latter being solid value on its own!

Boarded the flight to MCO and was impressed all round. A very open "feel" to the cabin, excellent & spacious seating, good flight attendants, menus and big-screen IFE. Thanks guys, I'm sold, there'll definitely be no looking back to BA's WT+ product.

Now enjoying our holiday in south Florida, but will have to "hunker down" tomorrow - the locals keep saying that someone called Matthew is going to "breeze by" on Friday!

@EIDW are you saying that cargo being loaded onto the aircraft went on fire or that the loading equipment went on fire?

Will be grounded until some work is carried out.

EISNN loading equipment caught fire, two handlers hospitalised. Aircraft was been unloaded.

Irish Times are calling it a "suspected oil pipe malfunction". No mention of whether the plane is damaged, and Orlando is closed to flights because of the hurricane.

Repairs are needed before it goes anywhere.

With FNH now in service do they have the spare capacity or will they need to hire in an Omni?

They have spare aircraft on Saturday and Tuesday so hire in or cancellation. Not sure how long it will be out of action but think it wont be to long.

They had a week with FNH spare but that ended on Thursday, same day this happened.

----

20 October for possible route announcement, today they announced 200 cabin crew jobs in Dublin next summer.
