New USPC lounge is open tomorrow but access will be restricted to:

The lounge will be available to transatlantic passengers travelling with Aer Lingus, Delta, United and American Airlines holding business class tickets and airline club cards.

What you are saying definitely makes more sense than this....

Version 2 with the odd version 3 will be used, showing both on different days.

It's an A333 scheduled to operate 10.10 departure to ATL but went tech. Now scheduled to depart at 05.55 tomorrow.

Thanks. Zipped by it on the taxi in and didn't get a good look at it.

So new routes/extra capacity for 2 of the 4 new EI A330s have yet to be announced. Might be worth keeping an eye on DL too, after them upgrading both DUB flights to A333s and Shannon to B763 after years of retreat. With VS taking more and more of their UK routes they'll have extra metal for elsewhere.

Although any extra capacity could be combatted by AA/EI in oneworld. With EI 4 x daily to NYC ex DUB it wouldn't surprise me if in concert with them AA upgraded on JFK next year to chase DL away.

Air Contractors have been kicking tyres on 757s in Europe and the States all summer apparently. They went for Rollers on the 4th one this summer so engine choice obviously isn't restricting them. Apparently the Pratts on the first 3 burn about half a tonne less per crossing. Whether they're looking at them for EI or themselves I have no idea. Remember they have something like 300 aircraft across the world.

YUL on a 757 is the latest rumour for EI. Whether that's due an A330 taking YYZ, as has been rumoured for 2 years now, or going back on IAD, both freeing up a 757, or a 5th joining? Time will tell

Rumours all 9 firm orders and 5 options for A350s will go to BA due to them lifting the same cargo and pax as a B772 for 20 something % less fuel burn. The further you fly them, the greater the benefit to the group. A330 NEO and A321 NEO LR orders will be placed for EI instead. BA's 767s are also rumoured to be earmarked for EI.

The Cityjet Sukhois may end up with green tails.

All tittle tattle with EI pilots right now.

Suggestion is the two due next year, one will arrive for May and reported routes are MIA and perhaps YUL however the second one will be a few months lather and also so speculation it may be used as replacement but it would be September/October 17 before routes start if its an addition. Still summer 17 will see a minimum of 3 extra A330 daily departures across the pond.

The July passengers take the additional traffic in the first 7 months to 1,750,000 which should see 2016 total somewhere between 27,500,000-28,000,000.

Most be the only single runway airport after Gatwick to handle such volume of traffic particularly given the poor layout. All other European airports have 2 or more runways with same volumes. Taxi times are starting to creep up this summer but another 3.5-4 years before 2nd runway is operational.

Edit - would put the BA 767 rumour to bed, not going to happen. A333 and A321LR will likely be the future. Still no word on what's happening with A350's but IAG have a lot of options so they could just delay them to EI if needed for BA. YYZ/IAD is a direct swap so either low freq A330 or daily 752 (fifth) to YUL.

It was previously speculated that there would be a tag on to GLA or EDI.
The original plan was a route through MAN to GLA and back.

The latest rumour is PEK-MAN-DUB-MAN-PEK.

We will see.

Can't see any service to BEJ somehow. PEK, perhaps...

Well spotted Nox. I wondered who would see that first.

Was that rumour for all MAN flights to go on to DUB or just some extra frequencies?

I would have thought either PEK-MAN-DUB-PEK or PEK-DUB-MAN-PEK was more likely, the 2 stops in MAN would seem unnecessarily costly?

Finnair will also increase its flight capacity to Dublin, Ireland. As of March 27, Finnair will fly up to nine weekly flights between Helsinki and Dublin, operating a mix of A319 and E90 aircraft during the 2017 summer season.

Red face DUB HUB? No!

As an experiment, and to save some money, I bought two FR tickets to get to ALC via DUB from LGW. I allowed myself about 2.5 hours in DUB hoping for a Guinness. On arrival one hour late during the afternoon into DUB I thought, no problem, I have another 1.5 hours to spare and I can use the Connections route into Departures. No such luck, the Security search area at Connections closed at 13:00! So, out through arrivals/Customs and back through Security, the queues for which were horrendous (25 minutes wait time). Fortunately my hand luggage wasn't pulled to one side for inspection, otherwise I would have missed my onward flight to ALC. Never again, DUB in the afternoon is totally unsuitable as a connecting hub

A brave experiment I think your plan would probably only have been more feasible if you had used EI

I missed a connection from CDG to CFN under basically the same circumstances. Baggage was checked all the way through but missed the flight due to a combination of a late arriving aircraft and having to go through passport control, into the checkin area and back through security rather than staying airside the entire time
