I see Aer Lingus Regional used ATR42 EI-GEV on 1 of the Dublin rotations today, seems like quite a small plane for the route, nice to spot though, does anyone know why they used the ATR42?

Luton is a work in progress however has a bus just down the hill to Parkway
Southend has heavy rail with a short covered walk from the terminal
Gatwick has a huge station next to south terminal
Birmingham International whilst not next to the terminal has that maglev connection
Southampton has a station a few yards from the terminal
Tees side has a station sort of adjacent with a wapping one train a week in one direction
Edinburgh is served by a tram
Blackpool South was a short walk from the terminal however the terminal has effectively been closed
Newcastle has a Metro in Light rail station
Not in case of LCY and Crossrail/Elizabeth, ludicrous considering that a branch of Crossrail will go directly below the terminal. The DLR is at the terminal.

The MME train is what's known as a "parliamentary train" - it's apparently easier to have one train/week to run through a station than to go through the rigmarole of having it closed.

Squires Gate is walking distance from BLK, trains to Blackpool South and Preston IIRC hourly train service.

Looks like the routes that returned this summer from FR don't return for the winter. Back to just Dublin, Krakow and Wroclaw operating at the same frequencies as W18.

Prestwick also down to 5 routes for next winter and 13 weekly flights (3 less than last year). Bydogoszcz lasted one season. Malta and Fuerteventura look gone permanently.

GEV is sometimes scheduled on this route from time to time between its commitments to CFN/ION, specifically on Sundays so it isnít far from the norm.

From what I hear flight was not rammed both ways...

480ish inbound and 200ish outbound was what I was told

Is the A380 the normal equipment from now on?

With this leap in capacity, (plus the EDI-DXB), even with significant hubbing opportunities at DXB, this level of service makes no sense to me. I worked in airline sales and marketing for over ten years, so hopefully have a feel for catchment areas,seats and viability.

The A380 is to replace the twice-daily service during the runway works at Dubai, although I think it will reappear during the peak season.

Its running daily until the end of September i think. Dubai goes back up to twice daily at the start of June with the 777 taking the evening slot and the A380 moving to lunchtime.

Not sure what happens in October. EK have suggested this could be an annual seasonal upgrade if successful. No plans to run all year round as yet.
