So, one of the based do 3x LHR, and the other does 2weekly flights?

Edit: Oh the AGP and FAO are daily.

Still poor utilization?

TBH not really as the AGP/FAO services take 14.5 hours. Even with longer hours you couldn't fit something in operating at a reasonable time unless it was to UK. EI aircraft start finishing between 22.00-02.00 in summer.

Also worth remembering where frequencies are concerned 2016 was a big increase over previous years and ALC new. Since then FR have arrived on all those routes except PMI (watch this space) and LS have upped frequencies. The W flights will deliver high utilisation as they won't be arriving back to DUB till the wee small hours. We will still have 3 sunshine flights a day.

Two based aircraft:
LHR x3
AGP x1 (-2 weekly) and FAO x1 (-2 weekly)

Non based:
ALC x3 (-2 weekly) - DUB operated
PMI x4 (-1 weekly) - DUB operated

I'm sure freq changes are possible so some may appear.
On the ball there Jamie2K9!
Bookable Thursday morning....

Far too late.

We've our S17 family holiday flights booked months ago ... ironically the outbound flights are with Aer Lingus, but from Dublin (and a lot cheaper too).

Quickly and efficiently handled by the looks of it.

I know this has already been covered but the EI PMI and ALC flights will now be evening departures... is this correct? I know on a Saturday the airport departures are all done by about 1830.

Has anyone heard any rumours on the sale process at Harbour? It all appears to be quiet at the moment, perhaps not a good time for airport investment.

Any guesses on what a sale price would be and how much of a difference from last time?

Going fine I believe
It's part of a portfolio of companies so price is a bit grey
But then they could buy Monday and sell Tuesday what they don't need / want

I see KLM goes from the Fokker 70 to E-175 on Sunday 29th October 2017 for good.

Where did you see that? Interesting to see what flight times are like, this winters flights work well for JFK connections, under 400 return, very quick transfer at AMS. Not possible on next summer times as it reverts to the later flight time.

"City radar offline again?" "Surely not" I respond, until checking the NOTAM indicates "yes". SSR only. How did that work out for Tornado pilot this morning, I wonder.
