Good news about Aer Lingus holding recruiting events for MON crew, although both Virgin Atlantic and Ryanair are trying to recruit them too.
easyJet have also been encouraging ex-Monarch crew to apply for vacancies they have at LTN and LGW.

Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if all airlines are interested in any applications that come from ex-Monarch crew. It's good to see that other airlines are keen to taken them on and I hope they all find new jobs quickly.

Appears to be some speculation EI will announce Seattle in the next few weeks if they can secure an additional aircraft in time for summer 2018.

They did say when they announced PHL they hope to be back with another announcement in a few weeks.

Mood lighting roll out on long haul fleet has also started.

A one off Copenhagen flight is on sale for the Ireland vs Denmark match.

Aer Lingus have tried and failed this route numerous times, don't see it making a full time return.

They may have in the past, but Facebook are building a huge data centre in Odense and 75% of the construction workers and engineers are from Ireland. The daily Ryanair, SAS and Norwegian are doing very well from this project which is set to last 3 years

Looks like EI recruitment announcement came at the right time:

Thousands of pilots from around Europe, many from troubled carriers such as Monarch Airlines and Air Berlin, have applied for 100 jobs at Aer Lingus.

The Irish airline announced several weeks ago that it intends to hire 200 pilots over the next three years; it advertised the first 100 positions in October, and by the closing date, on Tuesday this week, almost 3,000 experienced pilots are understood to have applied.

Reported Aer Lingus will announce new T/A route on Friday. They have apparently agreed A330 lease in the last 2 weeks. Rumoured x4 weekly SEA while PHL will be increased to daily.

Well hopefully then EI will be able to use that relationship to codeshare with them as Seattle is their biggest hub.

While not part of Oneworld or any alliance, Alaska routes/fares are listed with Oneworld Global Explorer as well.

SEA has become a major tech hub....even Apple have a serious setup there.

EI flying a kite in the hope of Microsoft, Amazon etc block booking capacity ?

Perhaps with a bit of a push from IDA to all concerned ?

The aircraft will be from air tanker - air tanker flight deck and aer Lingus cabin crew.

If it's air tanker that will seriously dilute the Aer Lingus experience. Air Tanker have been running TCX long haul flights from MAN and pax already complain that there are no seat back TV's and lack of premium cabin, imagine what that's going to be like for EI who have a J cabin?

Hard to see Air Tanker unless it was a medium/long term lease and EI would fit out the aircraft. They have no new A330 on order after the final one arrives this month.

Getting pilot approval for outsourced A330 ops is rather interesting, hard to see how they would get it passed.

The aircraft would be reconfigured into the standard Aer Lingus layout, with the Aer Lingus hard product. Air Tanker did the same when they leased their aircraft to Jet2 - their A330s all had Jet2's grey and red seating. Also, Thomas Cook's Air Tanker A330 was in fact reconfigured into standard Thomas Cook layout, with Zodiac Rave seat back IFE installed, so your comments regarding the matter are incorrect.
