To clarify the scope clause hasnít been discarded. Itís been slightly amended, and would still not permit Aer Lingus to operate BA branded service to/from London.

I was infering more to a harmonisation of scheduling, i.e. alternate BA/EI flights throughout the day using a common terminal/check-in process etc... as oppsed to currently BA and EI operating their own independent scheduling/checkin using different terminals (At the London end)

Aer Lingus 321LR

Quick question from anyone technically minded.
with the news that EI are to deploy 2 A320-lr aircraft somewhere in the uk... could BHD be a possibility?
the LR clearly have more powerful engines than FR did back in the day and more powerful than the 320 currently based there by EI
Could the 321 make it to the west coast from BHD?

Nope.

They have performance issues out of DUB on them. Just as well they dropped opposition to the new runway. Most have extra fuel tanks.

Do you mean the east coast?
I would guess if Northern Ireland ever gets scheduled transatlantic flights again then JFK, EWR or BOS are much more likely that SEA, SFO, LAX etc.
I think I read on another forum that EI would have problems using the A320-lr on the DUB-MSP route so west coast would be out.

Not sure that they could operate the A320-lx to the east coast of the USA from BHD?

Great to see increase on Glasgow. Hopefully things keep building up.
