....aer lingus have used a 747 recently for one of the boston flights..... That was a hire-in, therefore it was only carrying an A330 pax load. On top of that, Boston is only a short hop across the pond. ...singapore airlines 747 cargo operating out off dublin .... True, but as far as I'm aware it ...

... I AM NOT A HUMAN DICTIONARY... people make mistakes... May I suggest you invest in one though? If you want your views to be taken seriously, at least present them in a clear and concise manner. True, nobody`s perfect, but your posts verge on the illiterate. Incorrect pluralisations, capital let...

Re: Another new hole in the ground!

..The new link will be open by 2012 ... well, that's when it's predicted to open. From previous experience we can expect it to be at least 10 years late, 8x over-budget, too few stops, too small trains and about 25Euro one-way then!! ...However, it will be smaller than the port tunnel and hopefully...

Re: Airport Security!!! Joke or not?

.....Has anyone else realised that the security at the airport is still a bit of a joke from your own experiences?.... I have no faith in the "Hitler Wannabees" that are Dublin security.
