17? thats 2/3 the fleet. I'm somewhat skeptical :ugh:

Tooloose 20th Dec 2010 22:28

I think you're right. The report said they are out of position. It didn't say where they are but it seemed that they were in a number of places none of which is Heathrow.

Noxegon 20th Dec 2010 22:31

Yeah, it was seventeen out of position. Don't think the fine folks at LHR would allow EI to park that many of their aircraft at once...

Jamie2k9 20th Dec 2010 22:48

Ya they are all not at LHR. It was just they way I herd about 17 a/c and then it went talking to LHR.

Runway now open again, Air Canada aircraft getting ready to taxi, The BA aircraft has taxied and the American is cleared for take off on runway 18. Hope all those EI aircraft get returned tonight.

Hope all those EI aircraft get returned tonight.
4x EI's and 3x FR's making their way from Cork to Dublin.
2x EI's and 1x FR's making their way from Shannon to Dublin.

Many EI's over Northsea and London direction Dublin.
FR's over Benelux and Southern England, most on their way back to Dublin.

and again, and again, and again!!!!

Noxegon 21st Dec 2010 17:25

Feel sorry for those cancelled; my father's home-for-christmas flight has just been rescheduled for the 26th...

Jamie2k9 21st Dec 2010 17:35

All Ryanair, Aer Lingus and Aer Arann flights cancelled for the rest of the day as DAA can't confirm if the airport will reopen tonight.

All Aer Lingus US flights due to arrive in the morning are all cancelled except one flight from New York due at 05:15.

Jamie2k9 21st Dec 2010 19:04

Dublin now closed until 08:00 tomorrow. 15cm fell since 12:30 today.

Shamrogue 21st Dec 2010 20:45

Tomorrow
 
I see, EI have been quick off the mark and putting up the cancelled flag. Anyone know FR's plan?
Will the early morning's be cancelled or delayed?

Regards
Shamrogue

Latest I have heard is:

FR asking that only pax with confirmed bookings for flights after 8am should present themselves at DUB.

EI "hiring in larger aircraft" to clear backlog and putting on some extra flights. Subject to weather.

Jamie2k9 21st Dec 2010 23:31

All Ryanair arrivals and departures are cancelled until 09:25 when the first Ryanair flights to Malaga departs. In total 50 arrivals and departures cancelled.

Dont all shoot me down lads when I ask this but have the problems at DUB been just the weather, lack of equipment at Dublin, lack of investment at Dublin by whomever or bad management of the above. Or just a combination off all of the above or none of the above??

Quite simply - the weather. The ground crews at DUB have done a fantastic job in getting the airport operational so quickly again.

LHR had 10.7CM of snowfall, DUB has had at least double this amount and still managed to only have the airport non operational for a relatively short period of time.

The snowfall in the greater Dublin area yesterday was unprecendented and has approached 1982 levels in several areas. How often do we get a shallow area of LP on the Irish Sea driving continuous, heavy snow streamers downwind from the Isle of Man onshore across the general East for more than 12 hours?

The crews at DUB have coped remarkably well, given the dry compacted nature of this snowfall and the fact that we are seeing a prolonged weather event that is at the very least a one in fifty year event, but more likely leaning towards one in seventy five years in terms of extremes.

Extra Ryanair flights on Dec 23.

News : Extra flights - Belgium, France, Ireland, Poland & UK

Noxegon 22nd Dec 2010 13:50

There's an extra EI to JFK tomorrow too. Shows as operating by 767; I wonder where they got that one from.

Sober Lark 22nd Dec 2010 15:07

Are 110,000 pax using T1 in DUB today
 
Are 110,000 pax using T1 in DUB today and only 1 or 2 flights using T2?

Jamie2k9 22nd Dec 2010 17:27

That amount is according to RTE news.
