I don't see the point in two airlines flying the same route at the same time.
They want to make money, offering better connectivity to you and me isn't their obligation since the state sold it's shares.

Is the second UA EWR definitely staying next year anyway?

So with EI in bed with both UA and AA now, ET and DL are the only airlines serving the US outside it, 17 flights a week....not a lot!

Just curious about something. BA are replacing 767s with 787s at the moment aren't they? I wonder if a couple of them could fly for EI until the A350s start to arrive? The 767 is the same type rating as the 757 isn't it? I know the 757 crews are Air Contractors, but many of them are on secondment from EI anyway

Wasn't the day flight for a period of 12 weeks over summer while an omni air 767 went into SNN? The day JFK was a 757, EWR will be A330. BDL will be 757 however, wondering if that means YYZ will be taken off for winter 16?

Happy about BDL route over here

Bradley To Dublin Aer Lingus Flights Expected To Start September 2016 - Hartford Courant

This is great for those of us who fly out of southern New England. We haven't had a direct to Europe since 2009 or so.

No wonder they choose Hartford. Once the subsidies run out will be the real test.

From what I pick up, there's a 757 due in late May/early June, that will operate an early JFK until Late September and then operate Hartford.

Believe no cuts are been made for LAX so another leased Airbus is arriving. Best chance is one Airbus will arrive on time for EWR launch and the second arrival will enter service in 2017 as whatever way you look at it they need to lease another Airbus for 2017 so leasing it for LAX saves the same expense in 2017.

17% capacity increase cannot be achieved by waiting for Airbus to arrive.

The fourth 752 will be used on IAD to operate a daily service (4 weekly now) between May-September before moving to Heartford. IAD A332 will move to LAX, while a weekly MCO will not operate and also move to LAX.

Would appear extra JFK will not run next year nor the increased capacity at SNN.

that's great to see, and they've made quite an impact when you look at fares on fr and the ei website, anybody know how bookings for it have been.

EI why did IAG buy it

So EI have a unique offering,
EI/KL so close they are nearly married
EI B6 very profitable both parties dead happy
EI /BA getting even closer
EI UA as above

Add in AC AA

First casualty , EY will go for sure IAG don't need them?

Interesting times ahead but EI are quite unique in their reach for such a small carrier

You would think but I would look at EY as no threat to BA or IAG as a whole and if you remove the booking channel from EI they will just go to EY/EK directly rather than BA etc. EI may just enjoy what revenue they receive from passengers who book via them and I think EI probably benefit more from some T/A connections at DUB. Can't see many logging onto EI.com to book EY flights and don't know of anybody who has.

The UA scenario is an interesting one and the recent announcements such as EWR and possibly using T7 at LAX. Surly UA will need to get the boot when they rejoin OW, can OW refuse EI entry if they don't get rid of them?

Personally I am not a fan of AA and would hub in the US with JetBlue or United only or fly directly from LHR or any Euro hub. I would hate for EI to force passengers onto AA.
