Am I right in hearing that all Aer Arann flights will operate under Aer Lingus Regional as of this June?

SOU

It is a shame that Aer Lingus Regional are not considering flights to SOU especially from Cork as this was an origional Aer Arran flight, I am sure it could be a success if restarted especially under the Aer Lingus brand.

Just to be clear, will the company be operating any flights in it's own colours and codes or is the whole operation going to be sold as Aer Lingus?

All rumours suggest all services will be under the Aer Lingus Regional banner.
Aer Arann/Aer Lingus have not announced anything yet. I would think they will do this before the summer schedule starts ???

If BYO is in for painting etc now then its likely they are being done one by one, I suppose there is no point announcing anything until they are ready to rock and roll with a full fleet. Wonder will we see EIR at GLY and WAT? Interesting to see what W flight EIR do from BHX as the SNN flight in summer looks like it goes off somewhere else before returning to SNN.

EI BHX

Yes this Shannon detail was pointed out to me

It arrives at BHX at 0850 and departs 1310 so looks like something will be put in between

Hopefully we will see RE/EI regional at NQY at some stage soon, there is certainly a need for a DUB service

I'm thinking its the wrong end of the day for a BHX-BFS flight, unless they are just going for a mid morning run but it would seem daft not to offer a more business friendly timing. More I think about it more likely it is going to be NOC or some other regional Irish route. They may very well see WW's situation as the opportunity to get in and any new owner may very well say adios to the route to concentrate on other things.

If the ATR42s and the remaining white ATR72s are being painted green, does anyone know if the interiors are being upgraded at the same time? Have flown on a 42 and a white 72 recently and the cabins were an absolute disgrace both in terms of maintenance issues and cleaning. Both were disgusting and looked like they had not seen a proper deep clean in months together with various bits of tray tables, cabin trim missing, seat covers ripped.....not pleasant.

Flightrider...

To my knowledge EI-CBK has had interior refurb and seats replaced with vibration absorbing ones, don't know if thats leather covered??? I would have thought most of the fleet needed similar treatment. EI-CPT was in a dire state when I flew on it. I don't suppose EI would allow such tatty aircraft to fly under their banner.

The suggestion of a BFS BHX service with EIR/AerArann has been kicking about for ages, does anybody actually in the know have anything to say about this, or is more wishful thinking talked about to the extent that it seems it is a certainty?

It would be nice if they did but unless they base an a/c in BFS I can't see it somehow. Surely they would want business friendly timings and thats nigh on impossible without doing so.

Bournemouth thread is saying EIr to start 6xweekly DUB summer 2012, AT4. Anyone back this up? Are they planning any other UK destinations?

Kind regards

canberra97, I think it would more likely that Flybe could offer a Southamption-Cork service.
Since Aer Lingus came on the ORK-LGW route, I think Aer Lingus Regional would be more likely to offer a Cork-London Luton, Southend or even London City service if they based another aircraft in Cork this year.

16.00 departure from DUB and 17.30 from BOH. DUB-BRS have being reduced to make way for it.
