Could an Aer Lingus A321LR do Cork to JFK? Is the runway at Cork long enough?

The only way I could see them looking at Cork is if they see the possibility to chase Norwegian out of Ireland altogether.

Once the 757s have been replaced, there are only 3 aircraft yet and there are plenty of destinations where they might come in handy from Dublin. Montreal and Philadelphia immediately spring to mind. Also, increasing frequency to somewhere like Boston, while freeing an A330 to go somewhere further (Dallas? Seattle?) may also be an option.

Problem is Aer Lingus carry cargo so the question is can a fully loaded pax and cargo A321 get to the East Cost from Cork.

Don't see that happening as they would need to drop fares considerably and the impact would be fares in rest of the business would collapse as a result.

Matching Norwegian would mean forget €500 fares and they be back in the loss position again.

They have been offering return trips for 400 euro or below before DY even announced services. EI are high for peak few weeks.

The A321LR does not have much space for cargo the space is used for an extra fuel tank.

You mean the airline that has 3 based aircraft, and 3 based aircraft on it's partner regional airline, with 22 routes operated from Cork?

Yeah they don't know where Cork is at all

In the case that Cork's runway can't get the A321LR across the pond non-stop, how about they hold on to some 757's for it? The A321LR will get PIP's down the line I'm sure, then it might be in a better position for transatlantic from Cork.

Although... If Norwegian are going to be flying those ground effect dogs transatlantic from Cork, the A321 shouldn't be any bother

They know Cork is not that far from Dublin and with only 1/2 million population, demand will not be that high. It would be nice to offer the convenience for the few but would they pay the high price required to make a profit? Unlikely.
Charters may be possible though.

Has anyone any idea why it is so hard to have AerClub Avios credited for flights coming to Dublin? From Dublin there's no issue at all but EI are saying that flights from other destinations to Dublin that have not been added (and it seems to be affecting a lot of people, I have two already) will be added in "the next phase of the AerClub roll out". But when you inquire when that might be they cannot tell you.

Very odd.

It's been a complete shambles, and taking a long long time to get sorted. They have made a lot of customers very angry.

Not 100% on this it's the IT system they use, Irish, most UK, US/Canadian airports tend to credit points automatically. European airports are causing some problems.

Just keep records of any flights and/or boarding passes as well. You could be waiting a few more months.

What color is along the top or your boarding pass green or black?

I don't have the passes but the flights are recorded in my AerClub account and I still have the emails and records of communication with EI. One was a cheap flight to Rome but the other was business from JFK. It was only a few days ago but the outbound was updated almost immediately. I might hit platinum status this year if they credit me with all my tier points. Thanks for the info. Hopefully they can sort it. Hard to believe it's that difficult to record a person's travel!!

Once they are showing you should get them at some stage. Allow 5-7 days for the J ticket ex JFK to credit as it should be an automatic credit.

Tier credits now added to my account for return leg of flight but Avios have not been.

This really is a shambles.
