Confirmed all flights to North American will clear in DUB from 30 March. Capacity to the US/Canada is up by 320,000 (17%) in 2014. 10% to US, 80% to Canada.

Three airports trying to secure it, probably 2015 before anything happens now.

There will be another carrier enter DUB before them if some rumours are correct. Going east!

Could we ever see CX operating to HKG or would the payload restrictions be too great? I know that a lot of people travel to HKG from DUB with many from Northern Ireland (including myself), with many choosing to fly BA or EK, maybe CX could snap up some of their business?

They could do it with an A332, but I can't see it happening. CX used to have alot of cargo contracts in Ireland. EI would do the DUB-LHR leg, then CX would take over. Most of these contracts were lost to EY/EK. So if they didn't do it when they had the cargo to boost revenue, I don't think they would do it now, but who knows

CX identified future European routes to tie in with the A350, and Dublin was not mentioned.

Can't see BA being too happy if Qatar were to arrive in Dublin since they are one world partners.

The negotiations were very intense Racedo. Something about nice package this, pre clearance that bla bla bla, then one of them said what about throwing in 162 feet of additional runway. Sorry couldn't hear the rest.

Lufthansa adding fifth weekly to MUC for peak summer and Flybe replacing Dash 8 with E-195 on Exeter route.

You can send the 162 foot of extra runway down to Cork.

Just heard that the unions have decided to go ahead and shut down DUB/SNN/ORK for four hours on 14th March despite an expert group having been set up to try to solve the pensions dispute and are already working on the next phase of strike action. Obviously, a statement being made that they still have the power to cut off access to/from Ireland by air whenever they feel like it. Methinks, time for legislation to be rushed through.

Time to privatise the airports - more and more airport workers are getting closer and closer to minimum wage territory anyway.

Did yez all hear that snobby aul' EI wan on the TV aviation show last week - that and the tripe about snn?

Who do they think they are holding to ransom unsuspecting passengers?

The Cork Airport crowd worrying about the new terminal's debt and the roof leaking! I would tell the DAA to stick their debt up their jacksie.

What legislation would that be? the bill for screwing employees?? Good to know you're all for workers rights who have been 100% screwed by there employers and let me just be clear, they will not get away with it.

Hilarious some of you think the Gov would dare publish such legislation, in the words of Putin, such actions would bring the ''Storm''.

Welcome to the real world that everybody else lives in.
And the real world you speak of? The real world where I myself have had;

1) Hours increased by 10%
2) Introduction of Standby days (i.e. 4 days on 3 days of, of which 2 will be standby)
3) Accepting a pay-cut of 15%, of which 5% of that could be redeemed through Increased hours - We all did that.
4) Accept above conditions in order to protect pensions, and future prospects.

I accepted, and part 4 has now been reneged on through no fault of my own. I basically accepted to work 10% more hours for nothing, which I gladly did. There are less fortunate people then me and I completely understand that. I've been in the real world my whole life racedo, struggled to pay bills some weeks in order to keep a job I absolutely love - and now I'm being lectured by a Ryanair PR man who welcomes me to the real world? This the same company that has absolutely no credibility when it comes to its treatment of employees (circa '98).

Let me give you a quote circa 09, to the above in which I signed the dotted line below it;

The objective of the first stage of the Plan is to deliver substantial operating cost reduction, in both staff and non-staff areas, to enhance productivity and to implement change in order to secure the Group's pension arrangements.
