Frankly I'm amazed it's taken this long for somebody else to take a bite. EI have been filling 2 A330s a day on the route for years now in peak season.

Great news from DL. EI must of been expecting someone to join them with a long time. both will do just fine and it will likely be enough to make DUB the second largest international route from BOS. CDG sits at 2 and DUB at 3.

Transavia to MUC is another completely un expected addition.

Segregation of 200 gates has also started.

Sabre timetable is currently listing 4th weekly flight for Air Canada rouge's Vancouver – Dublin in S17, however this is unconfirmed.
____

In other news:

TS back to x4 weekly and YUL will now be direct end to end and not YYZ-YUL-DUB-YUL-YYZ.

EI increase LAX from 4 weekly to daily (1/6/17) which has now filled one aircraft with MIA (strongly rumoured) and expected flight numbers posted elsewhere. MCO also returns it's fourth weekly service (1/6/17) and 300 ops to SFO start on 4/7 weekly in May.

LAX must of had a good summer as they dropped the planned fifth weekly this summer.

Etihad

EY have announced they will return to full 2 daily year round operations from 1 April 2017 (6 months currently). They will also be moving from T2 to T1 on 24 January 2017. Their lounge is slightly close to 300 gates as well.

There is no deal to be reached.....FR had the deal other airlines had. As for the routes two are served and croatia airlines will serve the last. Really cant see LUX been a route FR are interested in.

The alleged cuts are far from clear as some will happen even if they had a deal as situation is beyond their control and the daa.

https://www.dublinairport.com/latest...e-400-new-jobs

Four hundred new jobs are to be created at Dublin Airport with the opening of a new terminal-linked four star hotel which is to be built adjacent to Terminal 2.

The new hotel will provide employment for 250 people, while an additional 150 new jobs will be generated during the construction phase of the project. The new 402 bedroom property will be Ireland’s fourth largest hotel upon completion.

Planning permission for the 11-storey hotel has already been granted. Construction is expected to begin next October and the property will open in 2019.

The new hotel will have a total floor area of 22,840 square metres comprising 402 bedrooms, as well as extensive bar, restaurant, café and conference facilities and a fitness suite. It will occupy a prime 0.81 acre site between Terminal 2 and the T2 multi-storey car park – and will be located just 95 metres from Terminal 2.
_____

In recent weeks Radisson Blu announced they are to seek permission to build a second 7 story (144 rooms) hotel in the car park next to existing one while The Clayton plan to add 140 rooms.

_____

QR also speaking about DUB again and the CEO says they need Airbus to deliver A350's to free up B787's before it can start.

Yup, will be slightly higher than T2.

Strange to be allowed build such a tall building in Dublin, the planning laws are really restrictive on tall buildings here.

Reminds me of that incident years ago where a Spanair mistook that big hotel in Ballymun for runway 34.

The AAIU flew the same approach in the same weather conditions in a helicopter and found the lights on the hotel roof bore a striking resemblance to approach lights and the lights in the stairwells either side of the building looked exactly like runway edge lights, all were changed IIRC.
