No chance to go for a lounge here. Sunny, just a couple of clouds, 9 degrees and windy, nothing else expected in England, isn´t it?

That´s the one at gate 18, I believe.
EI-EZV "Tartan Lassie" is an A320, leg no. 118 on type and a new machine to the log.
In the air with Eurofly from 20.05.2003, a name change for Meridiana at 28.02.2010 and with AerLingus since 02.04.2013. Three examples operated the Little Red brand and here are some stories:

Cabin crew is all female, one senior, nice talking, one elder, ok, one middle aged nice and one younger, not that really motivated today, hangover style!.
Cockpit crew is irish, the chief introduces the crew by name during a nice welcome speech, he´s once again to hear short to London. No route or flight level data to notice. Do not miss the safety card, isn´t it?

Six for me at least around 29F, the load is not more than 50%.
Brown red oldfashioned style leather seats, low legroom and not that really clean it is.
Don´t get me wrong, but this looks like London, so fast and much faster than
