Didn't see this coming, but good move by Aer Lingus

Will we finally see a SSJ100 flying to LCY? and in EI colours?

IAG competing with itself....

Maybe, in the future but the SSJ still is not certified. It is currently expected to be certified in '2019' or maybe 2020. The aircraft was supposed to by LCY capable by 2017, WX first took delivery in May 2016.

Could we see a C series/A220 order here? Those RJ's won't last long

They are already on their last legs and often plagued with tech issues. They need replaced sooner rather then later. This is however a perfect fit for EI to get back onto the route initially and to build the route up.

Not going to happen for along time, the SSJ still has not been certified for LCY and eventually when this happens it will have tio be fitted with winglets, which Sukhoi are working on at the moment

What's new?

When we fly London-Dublin we might as well go to the IAG website from now on...

This is exciting for fixing the issues with flying from LCY and connecting to EI TATL from BA on LCY-DUB (which only allowed exiting to T1 rather than using T2 transfers). Woot!

Not sure there's that much capacity at T2 to take on these flights. I wouldn't be surprised if they remain at the 200 gates in T1.

When EI flights arrive at T1, they exit to T2 flight connections via the airside pre-passport control walkway, but when BA flights arrive at T1 there's no option to exit to the T2 flight connections and have access to the EI transfer desk.

I didn't realise that; that's definitely a plus, then.

Hi,

Odd experience trying to book a bag onto the LCY route - The EI app and confirmation shows no bags booked... But when I try to book a bag it seems to show that one bag was included.

Is, like the old cityjet, a bag still included when you fly to LCY on an EI booking?

James
