The early A320s MYT/TCX had (the first one I ever flew was MSN193) had the old, first generation IAE V2500s with inherent significant performance restrictions. It never happened to me personally but I remember a colleague being stuck for a couple of hours at NCL waiting for the wind to change sufficiently for them to be able to depart.

Engaging the TOGA Bump function on those engines always gave a marvellous grinding noise. Never sounded particularly healthy!

Going further back a 1-11 500 without de-min water injection couldn't even make Alicante non stop off 25. Stu Ferguson and I found that out the hard way one day!

It's an interesting point, however these days the Airbus supplied to EZY have their engines "de-rated" as company policy as part of an economy drive as such they never have available the max possible thrust that the engine can "on paper" produce.
In noting the Aitours machines problems in earlier years then perhaps they too did not have the benefit of the availability of max available thrust.

Thats not true, there capable of TOGA which is equivalent to full Thrust and they use this regularly for example intersection takeoffs from Belfast. They use a 'flex' temperature normally which enables them to use a lower thrust setting by entering a temperature but this still gives the correct amount of runway needed and climb out speeds/heights. Its all done on a Toughpad before departure to get the correct flex temp and speeds.

Dublin

Some changes to Dublin...

Ryanair has dropped the early evening Dublin at 1845 on Sundays effective from S18.

Aer Lingus continuing with into S18 at 1 per day at 1045 and 1220 Sundays.

Dropping the Sunday flight seems bizarre in my opinion, quite busy the majority of times with people commuting back to DUB or NCL for the week ahead.

On the other hand, I do hope Ryanair are continuing their investment at NCL, with maybe 1 or 2 new routes hopefully.

That's not true,
What you say may well be, however what I'm saying is that the Airbus engines are de-rated by what is effectively a "quasi" engine management chip so that the actual max power available on "full thrust" is not the same as the potential full power that the particular engine can be set up to produce. This is done because on certain airbus types there is more than sufficient power available for most operating conditions.
It makes sense for EZY to have the performance de-rated slightly, which achieves two basic things, it protects the engine life, and it also makes operation more economic. It obviously doesn't effect safety as all calculations by "touchpad"? or what ever are simply based on the actual engine performance available for the given conditions!

Thanks SWBKCB........Bristol is 13,635 +9% and Exeter is 3867 +10%

re Dublin..very strange goings on...looks like we will see a sharp drop from the 20,000 + monthly pax levels next year

Very bizarre indeed. That flight was ideal for weekend breaks. Dropping the morning flight would have made more sense.

Grounded Darwin Airline

Darwin Airline grounded, AOC suspended

Are they still operating for Eastern Airways on the NCL - CWL - NCL - ABZ - NCL route?

Jet2 Rumour is that there are at least 2 new routes still to be announced for next summer 2018 from each base. Could be good.
