It's a highly inefficient way of adding capacity though, and nothing more than a short term solution. If Aer Lingus genuinely wanted their BHD base to work, they would have leased in an additional...

If that's the case then I don't think Aer Lingus will make it until the end of the decade at BHD, never mind reach their 10th anniversary! Surely there is no economic case for operating such a small...

Does anyone know if Aer Lingus are planning on using ASL Ireland for the foreseeable future for their BHD sun routes, or is this just a capacity issue for 2018?
