In 2006/2007, LTU flew a weekly charter from Dublin to Cape Town on a Friday morning. It was an A330 which positioned in from Düsseldorf and arrived ...Jump to post

Let's not forget that ET has a pretty amazing network in the Middle East, South Asia, and the Far East, not to mention many Eastern African locations that simply do not work via MPM. ET would be a great complement to TP here, and I firmly believe that TP would also compliment ET for help service Br...Jump to post
Where are all the bodies coming from. I'm sure the population is only 4.7m Are there really that many travelling to the US/Canada?

Now that Dublin is in the 30M+ club along with Zurich, Copenhagen and Paris Orly, airlines are Likely to seriously look at DUB for growth. Good to see a new Chinese city added so soon.

If this is indeed true, what’s the advantage to ET? Maybe ET has crunched the numbers and gets higher yield on ADD > LAX and therefore they no longer want seats being deeply discounted on both legs at DUB , maybe ...

Great to have a nonstop Dublin - Calgary added!! Should do well.... and cool to have WS B789 on the route too! Can I ask - why should this route do well?
