Didn't someone specifically mention mainland Europe, DUB isn't mainland Europe....
You're right about Kennedy's mainland comment; but the direction IAG is taking makes me overlook that.
What is "mainland Europe"? The same as "Continental Europe"? IIRC that comment was made while also making reference to the Icelandic flights, so in that context mainland Europe (as apposed to Iceland) could certainly mean Ireland and the UK. I too think IAG is at play here.
