Grapevine tells me AA aren't coming back in 2013, United pushing to get that route AFAIH.

Anyone got any word onthe dates the summer US bound routes finish up?

There is reports that DUB-SFO will be added by United for next summer, do hope that AA stay as by the way things are/will be going nearly all US fights will be with United and Aer Lingus.

UA are restarting SFO-CDG from April 2013 after they dropped it a few years ago due to very poor yeild. If they feel they can make profit from it now then DUB has a good chance.

I really hope we get a Californian service next year but if UA operate it any idea what the frequency would be ? Or what aircraft would be used ? Maybe a 777 ?

Also about AA didn't people say last year that they weren't going to return this year ? And they did :S
Well if the rumors are true/false i still hope AA will return next summer, what are bookings like this year on the ORD route ?

Eithad CEO siad in London yesterday that the Abu Dhabi-Dublin route had been "very successful" for the UAE carrier and "you'll see more developments in coming weeks."

I know that a codeshare is coming with Aer Lingus but I have also head it going 2 daily or a larger aircraft on some of the current 10 weekly.

Etihad appear to have demonstrated a superior commitment to Emirates on the Dublin route by having their own dedicated First and Business Class Lounge at DUB.

EY at DUB

I think it must be recognised that, outside of AUH, EY's only Etihad Lounges are LHR, FRA, MAN and.. DUB, so a good sign that they've probably had DUB/EI plans for a while now.

American Airlines

I think that AA will be back and I read the same on other fourms. AA have added a restart date for 2 April 2013 and two other European routes from Chicago to Helsinki and Rome are not bookable for 2013 and have no dates added. I wouldn't be suprised if UA also started it regarudless of AA staying or leaving.

How likely Is it that next year Dublin gets new routes to Inverness, Dundee and Newquay ? Say with EIR or BE ?

Summer 2013

Turkish Airlines - Istanbul increases from 7 to 10 weekly

Aer Lingus - Chicago increases from 7 to 11 weekly and Boston increases from 11 to 12 weekly - extra aircraft which is required still has a Tues and Thur slot left to fill - lightly IAD-MAD A332 coming back in March.

Both take affect from 30 March 2013.
