Donít forget DUB is likely to be over its passenger cap this year. Slot reductions are already in place for winter. There may be places they want to fly but canít.

They haven't yet operated. It will be identical to the existing J class, apart from the new temporary plane smell

EI-EIL had to return to stand after push for attendance of maintenance, ended up on a 200 gate after starting from 307, well over an hour late as a result

We ended up with an hour delay back into Dublin. The captain said that there was a mechanical issue with one of the engines when they departed Dublin that caused the delay.

The plane smells brand new and had the new interior! The new J seats are fantastic. Including some pictures here.
