@e_russell Wonder what is prompting the move? Consolidate BA Bay Area ops at #SFO (and #SJC)?
@JournoDannyAero Willie Walsh adds that BA almost considered exiting 🇦🇺 after QF split. Now, in happier times, would love to expand to MEL too – but again, nothing non-stop.
@peterbellew Airbus in Toulouse today with David O’Brien and Neil Sorahan. Super presentation on A320neo and A321neo. A330neo interesting takeoff as we landed. But David wants an A380 for the summer!! @Airbus @Ryanair.
@Springboard_PR “It is really important for us to serve Irish produce” Lots of luxury local food and beverage produce available in the new Aspire Lounge @CorkAirport.
@WandrMe Only about 3% of bags clearing the US CBP in DUB are sent to secondary. As much about travel patterns as what the photos show. Can take 30-45 minutes for bags to be pulled for that extra inspection. #paxex #fteEurope.
@WandrMe US @CBP in @DublinAirport processes 27 flights a day, around 5000-6000 pax. APC kiosks speed up processing and the new facial recognition version will further speed that processing. #fteEurope #paxex.
