AFAIK, (1) both, and (2) yes.

The first official British Airways flight to LHR will be on Saturday morning, it will be operated by BA aircraft and crew. It will arrive DUB at 09.15 and depart DUB at 10.50. Over the next few weeks all flights will be officially operated by BA.
Indeed. Although 'BA' flight numbers to DUB have already started, the first 'BA' operated flight is BA8124 on Sat 30th, G-DBCH.

Sorry i'm confused- are bmi staff still working on bmi or ba metal, and do you get the full ba service if the metal is bmi and operated by bmi crew-cos technically you've booked through ba website?
bmi crew are working on bmi aircraft only. Several crew have been & are in the process of being transferred to BA, they will then operate on the BA fleet & currently 5 ex-bmi A319's.

Full BA service no, complimentary yes. The service on 'bmi' operated flights will be a complimentary bmi service.

Looking into Nov/Dec time BA is charging roughly the same as EI but offering catering and luggage into the equation. EI does obviously offer 3x as many flights!

Correct but incorrecrt as on the bmi a/c in c class the middle seat is not used so only four seats across the cabin used.

Alitalia will be flying from DUB-MXP & LIN for the summer.

DUB-MXP 23 June-1 September - Saturdays - A320
DUB-LIN 14 July-25 August - Saturdays - A320

Lufthansa Italia operated MXP last summer with a A319.

Aer Lingus will resume Venice flights for winter after both Aer Lingus and Ryanair suspended the routes last year. It will operate 3 weekly. Krakow will only operate from 10 Dec - 14 Jan and will be 2 weekly.

Not really, there's still demand mainly being cooped up by Ryanair and Wizz ex-Ireland. Probably the main reason for the seasonality of the route is that yields are low, Venice would be a more realistic choice for the Winter with Aer Lingus being the sole operator from Ireland to Venice during Nov to Mar.

BA capacity DUB-LHR-DUB

Well to me it makes good sense, around midday BA have inherited from BMI two flights that are at nearly the same time thus taking up two slots rather than one so it makes sense to put a larger plane on, thus freeing up a slot pair, times are not high yield friendly so makes sense

I think that is unlikely. All of BA's DUB flights operate from T1, but all the 767s operate from T5, so the largest aircraft DUB is likely to see is an A321. I understand that the majority - if not all - flights operated from T1 will be ex BD aircraft, the BD and BA fleets are relatively incompatible from a ground handling perspective, by all accounts.

Interesting idea.

Don't forget that EI used to run the occasional A330 to LHR T1 for the Christmas rush.
