It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, we have an Aer Lingus Airbus A330-300 at Chicago O’Hare International as it loads and is prepared for its return journey back to Dublin Airport.
Aer Lingus operate a fleet of 12 Airbus A330-300 aircraft. These are supplemented by four Airbus A330-200 and six Airbus A321LR aircraft in their long haul fleet.
The long haul fleet is supported by Aer Lingus’s fleet of Airbus A320 and Airbus A321, which operate on short-haul routes and ATR72-600/ATR42-600 in their regional fleet.
This aircraft is EI-LAX, named St Mella. It joined the fleet in April 1999 and has been parked in February 2020 due to a decline in traffic. It remains on Aer Lingus’s books, however it is due to leave the fleet for parting out at Ireland West Airport (Knock).
The aircraft operates in a two-class configuration, with 23 Business Class seats and 243 economy seats.
