Aer Lingus has been forced to make summer 2019 schedule changes due to Airbus A321LR delivery delays.
Aer Lingus has eight Airbus A321LRs on order. The new type will eventually replace the four leased Boeing 757-200s.
Aer Lingus issued this statement:
Aircraft delivery delays have necessitated Aer Lingus make the following changes to our summer 2019 schedule:
Postponement of the commencement of the Dublin to Montreal service, due to start on August 8, 2019 to summer 2020
Temporary reduction in frequency on four transatlantic routes (DUB-PHL, DUB-MSP, DUB-BDL, SNN–JFK) during July.
All guests booked to fly on affected flights are being accommodated on alternative flights. Aer Lingus wishes to apologise for the inconvenience caused.
