Shannon-2

I posted that in the Dublin thread rather than the Shannon one by accident and deleted it from there. A 767 into Dublin is no problem and with other operators on the route the choice of operator isn't as vital. Is that going to be the only twin aisle operating into Shannon or are Delta still using a 767?

Delta currently use a 767, and over the previous 2 years a 767 was used on BOS.

Sadly, latest info is that the announcement is delayed for a day or two. Should hear by the middle of the week.

Fairly high frequency, seasonal as it is.

Shannon Airport has today welcomed the announcement by Air Canada of a new direct service from Shannon to Toronto operating from June to October 2018. The service will operate four days a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

So if it's the 737 Max, it's Air Canada themselves rather than Rouge?

Air Canada have released their seat map for the B737-8 MAX. They'll be in 16/153 configuration with 30" pitch in economy and 38" pitch in business. For comparison, United's B752s are in the same configuration, albeit with full flat beds in business. The good news is that there will be personal TVs and wifi on board.

It's pretty much a LCC seat with legacy carrier service. Not the worst outcome really.

Only about 40 Pax on the A319 from FRA on Saturday with 2 in business. All Germans, 1 American and 1 Irish on board.

Very late in the year. Still poorly performing.

Why are Lufthansa using the A319? The E190 or CRJ900 would be a much better fit for the route. It's as if they want the route to fail.

German elections this weekend. A factor in the poor load. This upcoming weekends Inbound and outbound loads looking well. In other news, Delta will be a 757 for the whole Summer 18 season. A loss of 20,000 seats or 43%

Delta reduction to 757 next year, leaving the airport without a widebody passenger service again.

United cutting Chicago next year, another major slap in the face for the airport.

Seen it coming, just not so soon.

Airport will struggle with any growth next year and I'd wager it'll lose numbers.

Doesn't bode well for chances EI basing any more than 2 A321LRs when they get them.

Can confirm this.

Lufthansa is staying, but just hanging on.

gosh thats a big blow SAS gone, Chicago gone, NY gone for winter with UA, Delta capacity reduction for summer 2018 - just shows how hard it is to make routes work out of the regions

Great that they got Air canada in and the extra Reus service with Ryanair otherwise be a major drop in numbers next year
