Both BHX flights Sunday are showing as A320
Aer Lingus Reigonal will once again do the Dublin- Donegal route from February 26th. The current operator doing the routes contract ends on the 25th February which is planned to be their last flight. Emerald will take over after that.
You've lost me with your post. Are you really referring to Aer Lingus?AOC issued today
They currently have 1 registered aircraft: G-CMJN (formerly EI-GZY). I expect more to followEmerald Airways UK (operating as Aer Lingus Regional) have been awarded there UK AOC this evening.
So the Leeds - Belfast flight will be operated by Emerald Airways UK (EAG) whilst the Dublin route will continue to be operated by Emerald Airlines Ireland (EAI)

What advantages does a UK AOC bring with it?As far as I understand Emerald need 5x ATR72's aircraft for the Belfast City based operation.
So expect at least 4x more aircraft to be delivered or transferred from Irish register (EI-,) onto the UK (G-) registration within next few days & weeks to come.
I understand the majority of the Belfast City based crews have already had training and transferred over to the new UK operating company AOC.

Yes they voted for strike action last week. It seems to be a similar issue to that involving Ryanair a couple of years ago, basically that the airline isn't recognising or negotiating with the pilots union.Are Lingus Regional (Emerald) pilots have apparently voted in favour of strike action. No specific details/dates as yet so no idea what, if any, impact this is going to have on their LBA network. Let’s hope a deal is reached to prevent action
