First of all I don’t want this thread confined to Fingallians. We may be the home of Irish aviation but others should express their thoughts too.
I’d like for people to rate their airport and airline experiences here but not to be waffling about bookings etc. It should be restricted to more aeronautical matters.
Anyway I had experience with two Aer Lingus pilots today. We had Captain Jimmy this morning (Bandage will remind me of his surname) and he was nervy and unconvincing throughout. He went so far as to express doubts over his ability to land the plane in a light fog which put less frequent travellers into an uneasy state.
By contrast Captain Ross Concannon was a model of professionalism on the journey home. He was efficient aerially and on the apron area, taking great care throughout but not at the expense of speed. Smooth and swift. A terrific performance and I’d have no hesitation in recommending him for one of the more prestigious routes.
