First Aer Lingus A321neoLR Delivered to Dublin
Last Friday in Hamburg, Aer Lingus took delivery of the first of eight Airbus A321neoLR, registered EI-LRA. The remaining seven aircraft will join the fleet over the next 18 months and will become the backbone of the narrow body North Atlantic fleet. Aer Lingus becomes the first IAG airline to operate the A321neoLR and will deploy it on transatlantic flights to Minneapolis, Montreal and Hartford with 16 business class seats and 168 in economy. EI-LRA is powered by CFM International Leap-1A engines. It arrived into Dublin on Friday evening at 21:16, unfortunately too late to take part in the Bray Air Display on Sunday. EI-LRA will enter service this Friday on the EI-131 Dublin to Hartford (BDL) service.
