there is a 9 and 10 (technically still an 8 too) There are actually 19 pax stands and 5 freight that are available at any one time.

Shhh.... don't mention the GLT. First rule of flight club.......

That's more a you problem than an us problem.

Just because ye can't agree on the colour white doesn't mean that other threads should be brought down to the childish level seen on the NI threads.

Anyone know what the deal is with LH, have flights booked and have received an email saying my departure was been advanced from 05.25 to 04.55. Its must be one of their first European departures so is there a particularly connection in FRA they are aiming to meet with an 07.55 arrival or just slot issues in FRA.

Since the move from 06.50 it has never been earlier than 05.15.

Flew DUB to BGY on Sunday evening. The terminal ( 1 ) was very busy but waiting time at security only about 10 mins. Great buzz about the place. Nearly 30 mins taxi from gate to airborne. Felt like LHR with the queues of a/c. Love to fly!

Sounds like runway 10 was for takeoffs and not 28?

Ultimate Destination
 
I was reading this article earlier in the week and I seen they stated approx. 30,000 passengers per year flew to Beijing, and I remember about 5/10 years ago they used to show ultimate destination for passengers originating in Dublin that wasn´t currently served direct from Dublin on anna.aero, but I can´t seem to find this information anywhere now. They also used to have www.flytodublin.com as well, and even checking www.dubplus.ie that appears to have superseded, it doesn´t seem to provide this information. Does anyone know if this information is still provided, and where I could see it?

A333 - 32 J, 260 Y, Total 292
B789 - 30 J, 259 or 262 Y Total 289 or 292

Better runway performance would be my thinking.

Edit - A333 still showing later this summer.

VG31 17th Jun 2018 11:46

I booked a flight with Hainan from DUB in July and it listed the aircraft as being an A333 but the seat map was for a B788.

CabinCrewe 17th Jun 2018 18:15

An A330-300 down to a 787-8 is a fair drop in capacity already in such a new route. Perhaps that was always the intention after peak European inbound summer.
I would be surprised if careful accurate runway performance (outwith provisional low initial loads) was not calculated and known in advanced. The original marketing was for year round A330-300.
Interesting times with this route I think.

2.9 million passengers in May up 10%

Europe 1.5 million up 12%
UK 871,000 up 3%
Transatlantic 383,000 up 19%
Other international 69,000 up 23%
Domestic 10,000 up 27%

Almost 11.6 million so far this year up 6%. Also the 50th month of consecutive growth.

Perhaps relevant? Hainan's jacket's on a shoogly peg.

The indecision from HU has cost them big time, the very unexpected CX announcement and then the announcement of a low freq one stop HU service was always going to be a hard sell. There has been little promotion in comparison to CX. Saying that the direct DUB-PEK can and is filling the capacity of a B788 alone so if they want to make the route work a better schedule will be needed and more direct services. Cargo is strong also.

HU
 
According to folks on the EDI thread, EDI-PEK appears to be dropped after 27th Oct, routings on HU website only available via BRU.

It could just be a case that the HU website is being updated or the route is yet to be loaded and everyone has got their knickers in a twist
