Joint-ventures are complex to manage in terms of bringing together different commercial organisations and establishing governance and reporting structures etc but the Oneworld transatlantic joint-venture is already well-established and has small players like Iberia and Finnair in it.

Willie Walsh's comment about AA having not understood EI's business model suggests there is more than meets the eye going on between AA and EI.

With there only being 4 757s what's the story with Summer routes? They were:

SNN-JFK
Earliest DUB-JFK
DUB-IAD
DUB-YYZ

With DUB-BDL does that mean the early JFK isn't returning or is a 330 picking up one of the above routes in Summer?

DUB-YYZ goes 332 to allow DUB-BDL.

Day JFK usually doesn't go on sale until New Year, surprised if they don't return it!

Im sure at the IAG investor day (#ShowMeTheF******Money :roll eyes EI mentioned 5 757s in the oral presentation, however I've never seen another reference to an additional 757 joining the fleet, so another 757 would be possible, perhaps even planned.

757 did DUB-EWR today

Expect to see the 757 appear on DUB-BOS services also to maintain frequency while allowing A330 go in for maintenance

A drunken plane passenger who caused a landing to be aborted when he insisted on using the toilet just before touchdown has been jailed for two months.
Drunken plane passenger who caused landing to be aborted 'in split-second decision' jailed for two months - Independent.ie

Not sure what's more impressive the 2 month sentence or the fact it was handed down within 36 hours of the incident.

I'm pleasantly surprised that the idiot got a real punishment. Well done judge.

Maybe he can reimburse the airlines for all the extra fuel burned putting the go around aircraft back in the sequence.

Stephen Kavanagh gave a talk on Aer Lingus yesterday evening and said:

1 - A321NEO (LR) order will be finalized and announced in a few weeks with aircraft to work US and European services. RTP said 7 but I wouldn't be surprised if it was higher.

2 - 2 additional A330 will join in 2018, would take A330 fleet in DUB to 14.

3 - No business case for A330 NEO or A350 due to fuel and costs, 9 A350 still remain on order books. So likely they will stick to new cheap A330's instead.

4 - Like LHR-MAD, A330 will likely be deployed on DUB-LHR for cargo in the future.

On a different note they are going recruiting cabin crew in Italy next month, could VY operation if correct be bigger than just BCN.

Does anyone have any idea what happened to 'Aer Space' - the not-quite-business-class product for short haul flights that was announced back in 2015?

Aer Lingus and WestJet have become partners feeding YYZ hub.

Not sure if they will formally announce it but it's live on website.

Interesting development as BA and WestJet terminated their codeshare agreement last year.

Not a full code share nor close relationship. EI are offering services via WJ in YYZ but WJ are not offering EI flights via their website. More like Flybe set up.

I did notice that but AA are still with WJ while both AA and BA dropped JetBlue not so long ago.

EI need us partners for their business model to work. Perhaps WJ will be more acceptable than AC whenever OW happens.

Interview with Aer Lingus CEO Stephen Kavanagh from 2nd Feb's Irish Independent.

Kavanagh is throwing the dice with his plan to operate an Aer Lingus service between Dublin and Las Vegas next winter. But it's a calculated risk - like one taken by the gambler who's been playing blackjack, but has been busy counting cards. "We are working to build a business case to operate a seasonal service to Las Vegas," he says. "We need to find a balance to the peak summer months, where the US consumer the main source of our traffic and where Ireland is the destination."

IAG released 2016 results today and EI operating profit increased by €109 million to €233 million. There was significant improvements in employee costs dropping 9.6% per ASK.

When yo compare EI and IB, if it continues not long before EI over take them even though they are more than double the size of EI.

2017 Capacity for Q1 up 15.8% and for FY 17 up 11.8%.

Definitely good figures, not matter what way you look at it.

There's nothing really so called 'Legacy' about EI nowadays, in a cost sense.

Good for them.

I hear the CEO is using the Norwegian expansion announcement as a card against pay rises and yet the bosses will get their bonuses because their targets were met.

Need some more baggage handlers.

Landed to day at 13.39 p.m. at gate 412. Bags took almost an hour to start to arrive. mine finally came through at 14.48. Shocking stuff. And not the first time. Even the Italians are quicker at this stage!

I've heard and seen first hand of issues like that, alserire.

Absenteeism can be, shall we say, high enough at times to have a visible effect on passenger experience like that. Throw in a rugby game against France and well.......

My point about 'Legacy' was in the financial sense only.

I'd recommend you contact EI outlining what happened. You could nearly throw your bag from 412 to the baggage hall. An hour wait is simply down to poor resources on the day.
