I was thinking the same, so no UK AOC and the end of May has passed. They have said there side is in order so you would wonder why the CAA are not issuing. Not sure the US would bend the rules and allow the BA sale without the AOC.

One positive is possible US-UK travel soon.

Cabin Crew training was due to start over the last week or two, not sure if it did. Anyone confirm?

Given the direction of political travel I don't so much see the UK government as an obstacle, more so the US government where the Delta variant hasn't really taken hold and cases are much lower than the UK whichever statistical measure you use.

As a somewhat interesting aside, I've just had a look at the EI fleet listing on Jethros, it would appear that there will soon be a Concord flying the G- register.

EI-LRG is to be transferred to be G-EILG and, as with all the EI Fleet carries the name of a Christian saint associated with Ireland, in RG's case that's St Concord, or Conchobhar in Irish.

The now G-EILA is St.Patrick/Pádraig, the frame carrying that name is usually considered the fleet flagship (although it's been know to switch aircraft)

Not sure where you got that information but Concobhar is the Irish for Cornelius and also Conor. It’s also a variation on the family name Connor. Definitely not Concorde.

True but that is the name Aer Lingus has gone for, Concobhar is visible on the Irish side of EI-LRG and St Concord on the other.

These flights have been operating for a few weeks now, what are the loads like? Is it a success yet or has Omicrom stuffed it?

JFK and MCO doing well considering it's winter. BGI figures have been poor with only a few flight going into triple digits.

MCO &JFK doing very well. bgi has been busy over xmas and new year but with the current state of travel to be expected it’s quieter outside the holiday season. Confirmed BGI back for winter 2022/23 though. Summer 2022 sees MCO daily (which was always the plan) and daily JFK.

I don't think that the A321NX quite has the range to reach BGI, otherwise that would be a good equipment swap at leaner times of the season.
