Honestly looks like a slot filler timetable.

Over 2 million passengers in July down 0.7% due to domestic closures on 21 July 2011.

UK - 620,000 down 6%
European - 1.2 million up 1%
Transatlantic - 190,000 flat (good considering a slight reduction in seats)
Middle East/Africa - 46,000 up 75%
Domestic - 6,000 down 53%

Almost 11 million year to date less than 1% decline.

Good to hear that the passenger numbers are almost level with last year

On another note how likely is it that next we could see these routes being operated ?

Reykjavik with Icelandair
Los Angeles or San Francisco with United
Moscow with Aeroflot
Tel Aviv with EL AI
Luxembourg with Cityjet ?

Thanks

Dont forget to include a Cork to Dublin in that list!

We, in Cork, are lost without it!

Emirates B777-31HER [A6-EGO] 1000th 777 at Dublin | 18-08-2012

How does this look for the EI code share?
Dead in the water I suspect - unless they ARE just short-term slot-fillers. Certainly, if BA are operating two-class, all business class transfer traffic will migrate to BA. Where this leaves Cork and Shannon is anyones guess.

Why would BA do this? My own theory is that EI tying up with Etihad is a factor, as it would channel Ireland - Middle East and potentially Ireland - Far East / Australia traffic away from LHR and, by extension, BA. By operating their own services they can defend those markets.

Just my 2c.

Or maybe Willie W just is giving EI the two fingers. Either way you look at it it is kinda hard to beat what BA are offering now, as it is one airline from DUB to end destination.

And i guess EI cant exactly start a price war or BA would I suspect pull the codeshare. I have heard from a source who says that he knows for sure that a work friend of his has assured him that he heard through the grapevine that BA are also looking at LGW from DUB and one more possible destination ex-DUB. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Can't see Cork to Dublin coming back, now the train has come down in price if booked ahead and now there are express non stop luxury coaches between the two cities. There is now even less of a demand for it than there was when it was first stopped.

There appears to be an understanding that against your common garden variety legacy carrier, it's just competition. There is some degree of respect between the old flag carriers and some of the new guys, even between the likes of BA and EZY. However the middle Eastern goliaths are seen by some (not all) as to be beyond the pale and by getting into bed with Etihad, Aer Lingus have crossed a line. These airlines are perhaps (feared) seen in a way that KLM and Lufthansa are not.

Skipness One Echo you are right about EY/EI thing but my view is:
BA timetable for coming winter is a slot filler as with new LBA service.
Don't think the 8 daily will be carried through next summer.
BA might be P***** of with EI now but in a year or two BA will drop Dublin flights a substancial amount or a possible full pull out when they find more profitable routes to use the slots and will have no choice but to come back to EI for there feed from DUB,ORK,SNN
Also EI feed the majority of long haul carriers at LHR and I also think that BA are possible anoyed that EI are taking a substancial % of UK regional T/A traffic which would normally go through LHR. (ABZ, EDI, MAN, GLA in particular)

According to EK CEO a second flight to Dublin will be added within 18 months but I have read a few places that it could be much sooner than that.

It's clearly a partial slot filler, that's not the same thing as holding to drop a route. Is there a compelling reason why Ireland ought to be the only major European capital without a BA LHR connection? BA lost money as their cost base was out of kilter with the market, that has been rectified and as Mixed Fleet grows that will only get better.
I am old enough to remember Aer Lingus replacing jets (BAC111 / B737) on the Scottish routes with Fokker 50s and increasing frequency, with a view to feeding DUB and long haul. It did not set the heather alight then, nor will it do so now. Even with preclearance and all the good stuff therein, Aer Lingus is a minor player on the atlantic, commeasurate with the size of it's home market.
BA are possible anoyed that EI are taking a substancial % of UK regional T/A traffic which would normally go through LHR. (ABZ, EDI, MAN, GLA in particular)
It's not substantial given EI are only offering five flights daily ex DUB to popular BA destinations and feeding with ATRs. Having said that I do agree that EI is a very good option from those regions, however EI have never taken it to the limit of possibilities therein. I still recall an article about the SF340 NCL-DUB-JFK service where the Newcastle Airport manager got practically moist at what this was going to become. We're still waiting 20+ years later. Aviation is cruelly cyclical!

You say BA will pull out when they find more profitable uses for the slots, however BA need the short haul feed to make those long haul routes work, and the BA product on short haul is better than EI, in my view. Also given Mr Walsh's heritage it would be a brave exec who pushed for a Belfast/Dublin pull out without a watertight business case. I also suspect LBA may yet work out as BA have happily taken an axe to the remaining BMI network, there does appear to be room for both.

Emirates are also to sponsor DIY SOS where contestants are building a dedicated EK first and business class lounge for use of their customers in DUB.

Where does bmi fit in here? Dublin isn't a BA start up. The services out of Heathrow T1 don't seem to have changed all that much since the takeover, the only changes I noticed was the aircraft's exterior livery and the BA branded tea/coffee cups and snack (complimentary now)! The staff were in bmi uniforms a month ago, except with stickers on their name badges...

...it's a nice product, but not terribly inferior to what bmi offered. Major difference is OneWorld and frequency.
