Yes, and the Irish Times are illustrating it with a photo of Aer Lingus 737s and 146s from 2002...

With FNH now in service do they have the spare capacity or will they need to hire in an Omni?
Omni arrived on Saturday operating inbound BOS-DUB leg on Friday and will stay for a while.

One airline - one route - two standards of service
I find it unacceptable that on a route like MAN-DUB, which I have been flying for decades that a standard cabin bag is ok ....or not ok depending on the luck of the draw. It's good luck when your flight is op by Aer Lingus and bad luck when you find it is not operated by Aer Lingus but by another airline pretending to be Aer Lingus.

The difference is that the cuckoo airline's cabin bag allowance means you will almost always end up paying for an extra bag to go in the hold.

Summary:

Aer Lingus = bring your normal cabin bag, cheaper flight, no queuing to drop the bag, quicker and quieter flight

Stobart = find another miniscule bag to take on board, pack another bag(that you didn't really want to bring anyway) pay more for bringing the bag you didn't want to bring, waste more time at the airport dropping off said bag, a slower flight, a noisier flight at greater overall cost.

Ryanair is a more reliable product than the Stobart lottery.

Is the "operated by Stobart Air" at time of booking not clear.

I do agree about the baggage situation, quiet annoying but I have rarely seen it enforced.

The stobart was only there doing pilot training, 8 landings 8 takeoffs (in the form of touch and go's).

No news for NOC.

Two photos, one during and one after the event, on this report

Pictures show dramatic fire that grounded Aer Lingus plane | BreakingNews.ie

Maybe they'll fix the wonky shamrock on the tail while it's in for repair.

DUO arrived back from MCO this morning (no in serve yet) but FNG will now be out of action in BOS until Tuesday/Wednesday awaiting new engine after multiple bird strikes yesterday.

So down 2 aircraft, SNN 752 has been subbing at DUB since DUO but now Hi-Fly operating.

By end of month at latest I expect.

Nothing else.

Indeed and I even checked twice to not be confused and still managed to get it wrong!
