    HIGHLIGHTS

     

    When it comes to iconic airline brands, Aer Lingus is an airline that should never be overlooked. In fact, Aer Lingus is part of the IAG group which is well known as the parent company for airlines such as British Airways, Iberia and Vueling and the airline has had a rich history which began in 1936. From its small beginning some 80 years ago with a six seater De Havilland 84 Dragon, Aer Lingus has grown into an international major airline with a modern fleet of Airbus aircraft which include the A319, A320, A321, A330-200/300 and orders for the new A350-900.

     

    This program takes us on an epic journey from Dublin to San Francisco onboard the A330-200, along with a brief tour of San Francisco before returning to Dublin. We begin with an introduction to the Aer Lingus Passenger Lounge and the many amenities available to passengers travelling with Aer Lingus. One advantage offered to passengers travelling out of Dublin Airport is that it offers US border Preclearance services for US bound passengers. This especially allows Aer Lingus passengers to have a hassle free travel experience once travelling out of Dublin Airport. Following the introduction, we meet up with our flight crew as they review their dispatch documents for the 10 hour flight to KSFO. After the routing, weather and other important NOTAMs have been considered, we head off to the aircraft where a thorough exterior walk around presentation is conducted. Some may assume that a walkaround inspection may be a simple and sometimes trivial assignment; however it is a crucial step before departure than can mean life or death if any anomalies are detected on the exterior of the aircraft.

     

    Once the walkaround is completed, we join the rest of the crew as they complete the cockpit preparation and performance calculations prior to our departure. After departing Dublin, viewers are treated to numerous presentations that cover the career history of our pilots which can all be linked back to the Aer Lingus Cadet pilot programme. In addition to these interesting details, you will also learn a few facts on how Aer Lingus was an instrumental part of the ETOPS certification of the A330 along with a pilot’s viewpoint on transitioning from Boeing to Airbus aircraft. With so many insightful presentations, this 10 hour flight was educational and inspirational to say the least. After a beautiful approach and landing in San Francisco, we take a tour of some of the most popular attractions in the San Francisco area which is a lovely unofficial promo for this unique city. Once the fun and exploration was over, it was time to prepare for our return to Dublin.

     

    For our return to Dublin, one of the most outstanding highlights was the departure out of KSFO at dusk. While taxiing to the runway, viewers have the opportunity to see a host of other aircraft as they land and depart from this airport. As many of you may know, KSFO has parallel runways and it isn’t uncommon to take two aircraft landing at the same time side by side. This program nicely captured a simultaneous landing from the best view possible. In addition to this, the stunning views captured from the cockpit of our A330 were simply awe inspiring. While enroute to Dublin, viewers will also be very pleased to know that there is a detailed cockpit presentation on various systems of the A330 which is followed by an amazing max crosswind landing.

     

    In the end, I would highly recommend that pilots and aviation enthusiast alike should definitely consider purchasing this program. Just Planes did a fine job with capturing the exciting moments of this flight and we certainly applaud the highly trained flight crew for their outstanding performance. Aer Lingus has shown itself to be an airline that is keen on training pilots to be highly professional and we certainly hope that they will allow the rest of the world to see more videos like this in the future.
