    Thanks for the thread Kcormahs, useful for spotters.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,497 ✭✭✭Jack1985


    CityJet have 2 aircraft dedicated to the Aer Lingus operation inclusive of all services to BHX and LCY. So its 2/2 for WX. :)

    So slow on the rest... ok that it’s summer season but airlines like Lufthansa American etc changed their liveries much quicker even at peak seasons

    Huge airlines with likely much lower utilisation than Aer Lingus, even in peak summer so more aircraft available to repaint. 

    Also, Aer Lingus is trying to keep the costs of the rebrand down by ensuring repaints only happen when the aircraft would normally be scheduled for one, they aren't taking aircraft out early to repaint for the sake of it but waiting for its natural repaint cycle. 

    There are also some unknowns in the fleet, the original A321s, the future operator of the Regional franchise and the older A332s for example. We'll see more A320s and A330s repainted this winter, in addition there will be more newly delivered aircraft so the percentage of new livery vs old will increase considerably.

    On the other hand airlines like United were slow to update their livery that at one point they had 3 liveries across the fleet.


    There’s no tangible benefit to EI to repainting quickly. They have launched the brand refresh, all their promo material uses the new livery. I’m guessing they will ensure any new routes/photo worthy flights will utilize the new liveried frames. The relain only started in January. This coming winter they have December-March to repaint .

    So basically they haven't painted anything since the rebrand push in May, just taken new deliveries with the livery?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,129 ✭✭✭goingnowhere


    Correct

    Full fleet is required during the Summer, expect quite a few repaints over the Winter


  • Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators Posts: 9,711 Mod ✭✭✭✭Tenger


    Taking aircraft out of service in peak season is a loss making decision. They will have already booked their paints hop slots for Jan/Feb/Mar next year.
    They were very clear in January that the fleet repaint will have minimal cost overall.

    Ex Flybe ATR 72 arrived in yesterday from Stockholm for Stobart. I wonder will it be the first in new Aer Lingus livery.

    Picture on facebook of DVM back in Dublin after painting, still in the retro livery


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,632 ✭✭✭Captain_Crash


    I read that EI-ELA is gone for painting into the new livery.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,497 ✭✭✭Jack1985


    DEK returns tomorrow with new livery, DEE heads off to SNN tomorrow for repainting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,729 ✭✭✭✭Inquitus


    How long does it take to paint the new livery, a couple of days?

    Approx a week for the A320’s. An A320 has been positioning to SNN every Sunday for the past 2-3 weeks for paint.

    EI-ELA is now out of the paint hanger and looking fresh in the new livery.

    Any ideas which one is next?
