As we all know T2 is very congested in the mornings
Not only T2. The congestion has spread to Pier B (300 gates) which is absolute chaos and bedlam and constant EI announcements looking for their missing pax. BA have either been thrown out of there or have themselves opted to get away from the insanity and go to the peace and quiet of Pier A (200 Gates), although those EI announcements still filter through there as well.

Ah who cares about BA, they would be grand down with FR at D!, they don't care about where we go at LHR.

Would say they were booted out of B since EIR moved over from A and there is lots of room as a result.

AA OTp

AA have the worst performance by a long shot this summer daily delays of over one hour, missed connections , but have to agree re T2

One thing that greatly adds to the mess is the multiple daily dance of the queue poles, comical to see dozens of DAA Ek Ey poles being moved around in T2 ,

DAA should not allow airline branded poles at all if they have to be constantly
Moved and stored , very messy in an already busy Terminal, seen a few clipped ankles not to mention how little use half T2 check in area gets used, comical at times!!

daa estimating that 1.8 million T/A passengers will pass through the airport this year, the largest amount in its history. 2008 managed a peak of 1.748 million. 2014 could well see 2 million pax with extra YYZ, SFO and full year of AA's service to JFK.

Judging by the press release August total traffic was just short of 2.2 million passengers up on last year.

Question

Does anyone know if the new EI flight to SFO will pre clear in Dublin?

Also does AA to JFK pre clear in Dublin?

Thanks in advance.

SFO will pre clear and AA pre clear. It's only the 2 or 3 EI flights that don't clear all other flights to the US clear.

Word on the grapevine is the pre clearance is getting expanded, less of a bottleneck hopefully!

What's going on with all the delayed flights from Heathrow this evening, both British Airways flight I'm on and aer lingus flights are delayed. Looks like it will be a late one tonight.

I was wondering that since the US Government is shutdown will the preclearance be affected?

Not affected and unlikely to be either.

After one winter season with EI, SAS and FR on DUB-Stockholm route, FR have cancelled the route for the coming winter season. Didn't see this one coming.

Are a large amount of routes not coming back for Spring or is the full schedule not loaded? Tallinn, Oslo and Memmingem to name a few.

All flights from DUB to the US will be clearing this winter at DUB. EI have being pushing for this a long time, hopefully they will get the same result for the summer next year.
