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 think this confims that AA will be back:

AA LHR BOS Diversion

Without trying upset or offend anyone would it not have been better to divert aircraft to SNN/ORK/NOC where there would've been less disruptions?

Noc was closed.
Ork don't think anyone diverted there? Weather?

Have read the same comment on a few sites. DUB was pickesd because hydraulic problems particualy with no nose steering affect the aircraft ability to land saftely and a major emergancy plan was activated and many hospitails near the airport were put on standby and in the event of a crash landing which was prepared for passengers would get to hospitial quicker. That and the fact AA have gound staff at the airport and somebody to carry out maintance as they operate here daily.

Off topic but AA have picked DUB for the last few divertions they have needed.

Have heard that British Airways will be night stopping 2 aircraft from November with 2 morning flights. One around 06.30 and other around 07.45 and the first arrival around 08.00 and departing again at around 08.45. Reported that LHR will be 5 or 6 daily for winter.

This is not on the BA website yet but is there any accurate info in it.

I have saw a BA schedule which show BA operating up to 8 daily flights Sunday - Friday and 7 daily on Saturday. Waiting to see if it appears on BA site before I post it but what I have saw is from BA.

And yes it shows two aircraft night stopping.

Do BA have the same draconian baggage polices as EI/BD?

I'm happy as they offer concession travel

Dublin Airport is expected to handle 35,000 passengers traveling to the United States on 2 September after the match at the Aviva. They majority will be flying direct from Dublin with a small amount going via European hubs.

Sorry to be ignorant, what's on at the Aviva?

Is the Aviva what used to be the rugby stadium called "Lansdowne Road"?

How will that work though? Taking a ball park figure of 350 pax per TA flight, [okay, slightly less, but work with me here], then that's 100 extra flights in the one day, in the height of the summer season!!! No way that would work, probably spread more over 3-4 days I'd say...

There is around 5,000 seats outbound on scheduled direct flights to the US on 2 September, flights to LHR, AMS, FRA are also heavily booked. 35,000 is most lightly over a few days.
