Off topic somewhat.

But think the new EI livery makes this old Cityjet bird look good as new, very smart.

Any idea if they plan to still operate the 330's to AGP and FAO early morning rotations next year? Not loaded for sale as of yet. Maybe new route launches will bring those to an end?

Article in the Indo today quoted Sean Doyle as saying only 3 or 4 European destinations to be served by the A321LRs initially. LHR, CDG, AMS for example. I suspect some of the older A320s will be sold/returned to leasor so the net effect won't be huge. If anything would only free up an airframe or two to do early short rotations.

However the oldest A320s CVA/VB have been repainted. I wonder will more A320s be released off AMS/CDG/LHR and then used for expansion instead?

Would be great to see EI base an A321LR in Cork for the LHR route and New York or Boston given Norwegian will likely go bankrupt over the winter season.

Wasn't Norwegian supposed to go bankrupt last winter?

Guess it's a matter of demand - I can see there is an Irish/N England/Scotland market but I suspect its for the whole Caribbean - once you choose a specific island the numbers may not stack up

It's more likely to go to Cork if Norwegian stay running.

The only way that would be made as a business decision is if they could see that Norwegian's service out of Cork was impacting on yields out of Dublin.

Having arrived earlier in the week, it looks like the first A321LR (EI-LRA) operated its inaugural revenue flight today as EI-131 from DUB to BDL
