Any further expansion at Dublin should be halted and audited against our carbon emission obligations. Otherwise we’ll all end up paying more carbon taxes.

No to Dublin Airport Expansion.
Aka Aer Lingus busy putting all their eggs in the one basket.

Government will pitch carbon tax as a necessity because of agricultural and road transportation while conveniently ignoring the enormous carbon emissions belching out of Dublin Airport so that IAG can ship people from regional airports in the UK to the US.

No new runway at Dublin Airport. Remember, YOUR carbon taxes are subsidising IAG Ireland and the DAA.

Aer Lingus flight makes emergency landing in Dublin after birdstrike
Incident seen by air traffic controllers who confirmed seeing a flame-out of right engine

A US-bound Aer Lingus flight has made an emergency landing at Dublin Airport this Saturday afternoon after suffering an engine failure on departure believed to have been caused by a bird-strike.

Aer Lingus fight EI-115 (EI-11J) took off from Dublin at 1.36pm and was bound for Philadelphia in the US state of Pennsylvania. Almost immediately after departure the crew issued a Pan-Pan radio distress call reporting they had struck a bird on departure.

The pilot reported: “Pan-Pan, the Shamrock One One Juliet (EI-11J), birdstrike on the runway.”

The bird-strike was also observed by air traffic controllers who confirmed seeing a flame-out of the right engine. It is understood that at least one bird was ingested by the right engine resulting in the engine flame-out and subsequent engine failure.

An immediate inspection of the runway was ordered and carried out by ground crews to check for any debris that might affect a departing or arriving aircraft.

In the meantime, the Boeing 757-200 jet levelled off at 3,000 feet and entered a holding pattern north of the airport while the crew went through their checklists before returning to Dublin to land again.

The pilot also asked controllers to request fire crews to inspect the aircraft’s brakes after landing to ensure they had not overheated.

The flight landed safely at 2.05pm and was met by airport fire and rescue crews. The jet was able to taxi to the terminal where engineers were waiting to inspect the engine.

An airline spokesperson said: “Aer Lingus flight EI115 (Dublin to Philadelphia) was required to turn back when the aircraft experienced a bird strike shortly after take-off. The aircraft landed safely at Dublin Airport and all guests and crew safely disembarked. As a result flight EI115 and return flight EI114 (Philadelphia to Dublin) have been cancelled.

“Our guest relations team are working on a recovery plan for affected guests who will be offered hotel accommodation as required and will be accommodated on the next available transatlantic services. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to our guests.”

It must be an IAG thing.

“Suckers” doesn’t have the same ring to it
