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

Any idea why EI-FNG departed for Abu Dhabi this morning?

It positioned DUB AUH for maintenance. EDY also positioned for maintenance today except it went to BOD.

Stobart has deployed an Embraer E190, EI-GHK on Aer Lingus Regional routes today. The aircraft was until yesterday (4th March) operating for Flybe.

With all the fallout from FlyBE, I reckon Dublin will be losing over 100K transfer passengers, most of whom would have used Aer Lingus.

What are the prospects of the freed up Stobart aircraft finding their way into an expanded EI Regional network in Dublin?

Cardiff and Southampton would surely make sense at least.

Flybe feed into Dublin is nothing like that volume, I'd be fairly sure of that.
Aer Lingus will reaccomodate the passengers from SOU, CWL and EXT via nearest gateways in the UK, BRS, NQY and London airports.
I would not be at all surprised to see Stobart pick up SOU and/or CWL, but slots are scarce and to use the Flybe slots you'd need a night stop in the UK or a late start from Dublin, neither of which are very attractive.

A double daily Dublin service into SOU would be really appreciated

Eastern may pick this up after things settle down (if)

The Irish Foreign Minister, Simon Coveney, speaking on RTÉ radio today (22 Mar 2020) has said EI is to operate freight only flights between China and Ireland to bring in medical supplies and protective equipment for medical staff to help the effort against Covid-19.

It also seems EI and BA are working together to bring Irish and UK citizens home from Peru.

If traffic on Dublin - London becomes very light, could EI run ATR's or RJ's into Heathrow as a minimum service level?

Loads may be light but you have remember about Cargo. I believe ATRs are unable to operate into LHR due to low speed?

I drove past Heathrow today having landed at Gatwick. Slow speed is no longer an issue!
