Other Dublin page has being closed.

Blue Air have announced a second route from Dublin to Bacau from March 31. Operates on Thursdays and Satudays.

Maybe just maybe the green shoots of new business then please god!! Maybe WW may take over the ex-FR routes?

Jamie2k9 30th Nov 2010 12:34

New Ryanair route between Dublin - Ibiza.

irish lad 1st Dec 2010 00:08

Does anyone know if Air India have made a decision as to where their new European base is to be located?
Have T2 been enough to impress them

Jamie2k9 1st Dec 2010 00:15

A few weeks ago in the press in India they said the AI had chosen DUB as their hub but nobody really knows where they will go or it they will have one.

Just a spotter 1st Dec 2010 14:52

Snow closure 1/12/2010
If anyone's interested, DUB is closed until 19:00 due to snow.


Jamie2k9 1st Dec 2010 17:16

When American Airlines resume flights between DUB-ORD next April they will be operated by a B767-300. Last summer they had a B763 but it only started on the route on June 10th.

dublindispatch 1st Dec 2010 18:22

If we make it to next summer!!! Lets get this winter out of the way first lol

Kavs8 1st Dec 2010 19:27

Seriously dangerous at DUB today one of the lads said braking action was actualy dead on 0% when checkers where out, Cork's main RWY got de-iced every hour from 5.30 upto 9 and then again around lunchtime, on top of that there was a tech fault with EI882 to AGP!!

Jamie, where did you see that article about Air India? This is the most recent that I could find:

Aer Lingus rule out zero fares in future | Irish Examiner

But there's no confirmation from the Indian media there but I am aware that Declan Collier & co. had agreed to operate some of the facilities in the airport in New Delhi which may set the ball rolling.

If it does come off, it would be interesting to see what aircraft they'll operate the flights with. Can't see their A310's being a runner.

I know we've had this discussion before, but when you think back to the April ash cloud and how Etihad were able to use B777's to get to Abu Dhabi from DUB, would the 747-400's or 777-200's that Air India have be able to get to India and the US in one go from DUB?

We're all aware that either fuel, cargo or passengers have to be sacrificed for these aircraft to do their magic from DUB so bearing in mind the above and the fact that Air France & Singapore Airlines operate B747 cargo planes to DUB, does anyone know could Air India put enough juice in their current planes to attain the above or is the Gulf the furthest you would get?

On a different note, looks like Cyprus Airlines will be operating the flights to Larnaca this coming summer along with Thomson - could this be the start of something more permanent as they were on the DAA's hitlist recently?

Jamie2k9 1st Dec 2010 21:14

It was a few weeks. I herd it off somebody. If you ask me it not going to happon.

victoria73 1st Dec 2010 21:30

At DUB apart from the checkers,who else works along side them in airside operations.

Jamie2k9 1st Dec 2010 21:38

Dublin closed again until 00:30 at the earliest.

Kavs8 1st Dec 2010 21:55

At DUB, ORK & SNN (DAA - Airports) all de-icing, runway clearing and general clearing of the airfield is privately contracted by Airport-Int Corp.

NorthernCounties 2nd Dec 2010 12:43

Their closing the runway at 12:45 to clear the snow thats accumulated. Flights have either been delayed or suspended.

dublindispatch 2nd Dec 2010 13:34

Not again!!!!

Jamie2k9 2nd Dec 2010 21:00

More problems at the airport. The airport has reopened but fuelling companies refusing to operate on the ramp, claiming hazardous conditions. According to Ryanair website.

Sober Lark 7th Dec 2010 16:47

A reviewable put up or shut up air tax of 3 and a DAA incentive.

dublindispatch 7th Dec 2010 18:56

I just hope its the shot in the arm that we have all been waiting for at the Airport. May just be the thing to make carriers take a look at Dublin again!

dublindispatch 8th Dec 2010 15:51

Would Be Guessing That There Mite Be Some Announcments At The Holiday World In The Rds In Jan Based On The Reduced Tax And New Route Schemes!

Angry Rebel 9th Dec 2010 08:30

Presumably Capitalising Every Word Makes The Post More Interesting?! :rolleyes:

dublindispatch 9th Dec 2010 14:49

no smart a*** just forgot was in caps

Angry Rebel 9th Dec 2010 16:19

Eh not likely. If you were in Caps the whole thing would be in capitals.:8

NorthernCounties 9th Dec 2010 16:21

Now now, both of you, put your handbags away! :=

dublindispatch 10th Dec 2010 22:08

A handbag!!! How rude

wanna_be_there 11th Dec 2010 18:24

is the AA DUB-ORD service still going to be axed next winter?

Ive just checked the 'new service routes' tab on the AA site, and whilst JFK-MAN has been moved to the 'non seasonal' section, ORD-DUB is still in the 'seasonal' section?

Jamie2k9 11th Dec 2010 20:28

AA will return year round flights to ORD from next March. Currently it's bookable into Novemer just like all AA routes.

It will be a B767-300ER until October 29 and the B757 will start back on the route from Oct 30 when the AA winter season starts.

DAA's €24m property punt now worth just €8m - Irish, Business - Independent.ie
Good to see our masters of the universe continue to earn their pittance.Why grouse over blind pensions when we have our titans of industry guiding the ship of state into the bermuda triangle. :rolleyes:

The ADB was a long time coming, that will do a roaring trade I wud say

Kavs8 15th Dec 2010 14:57

so much for the crap about a LH DUB-MUC route :ugh:

Droghwings 15th Dec 2010 15:49

LH Dub-Muc
There will be a LH Dub-Muc service...but only once a week! Dunno why LH dont have a daily service given the amount of onward connecions available through their Muc hub.

dublindispatch 15th Dec 2010 16:47

Maybe the once a week mite be tied into a german holiday company bring in tourists. Dont forget not all flights are just for us in Ireland some may be for those in Europe who want to come and see want a multi billion bail out buys you these days!

Kavs8 15th Dec 2010 17:35

try booking it and when you find a flight (DIRECT) tell us when then ...

Droghwings 15th Dec 2010 17:55

LH Dub-Muc
LH2514 Muc-Dub 1505-1630
LH2515 Dub-Muc 1715-2030

Direct flight only available on Saturday
Available to book Lufthansa.ie

dublindispatch 15th Dec 2010 21:38

Seems kinda pointless really at once a week unless as i said before its more for incomin tourists.

Dont forget that the Air Italy and Arkia flights in Dublin amongest others charter flights for incoming tourists too Ireland.

Kavs8 15th Dec 2010 22:33

Maybe it's the fact that there's been a lot of mueller talk from Dublin bringing in those extra german pax.

ImPlaneCrazy 15th Dec 2010 22:48

Passed through DUB a few days ago and noticed that Terminal 2 is now completeish... although there didn't seem to be that many flights op'ing out of there only Etihad by the sounds of things? What is the overall plan for T2?

airhumberside 15th Dec 2010 22:49

Seems kinda pointless really at once a week unless as i said before its more for incomin tourists.
Thats the market it will be aimed at. LH do a lot of such flights. Other examples include DUS-INV/NQY/JER

Jamie2k9 15th Dec 2010 23:14

What is the overall plan for T2?
Currently it only Eithad and around 5 Aer Lingus flights arriving daily.

In Jan Aer Lingus will transfer to T2 and US carriers will aswell.

All times are GMT. The time now is 00:37.
