It's all about scale

UK airlines barely serve Ireland never did never will

On the other hand most uk airports number one or two busiest routes are EI or Fr ,so both the uk and irl want to have competition to Ireland and that means two irish airlines, very simple it's in UK interest to have its top ten airports whose number one or two busiest routes are to Ireland on one of two irish carriers, continue to grow and prosper.

Economics page one chapter one , keep the revenue coming in by product that's wanted and competitively priced .

UK needs EI footfall and FR cannot provide it to UK by themselves

Perhaps the interest of the British Office of Fair Trading is based on the importance of the Irish market to British exporters.
Ireland is one of Britains major export destinations, as well as being a major source of British imports.
Safeguarding rapid access, and crucially, non - monopolistic, competitive fares is therefore important to the home economy, hence the OFT concern.

BMI did rather well, indeed BA kept the LHR-DUB route after the take over. The only reason GO and EZY didn't last was Ryanair went in with loss making and predatory pricing practices. EZY didn't even try Dublin and still were roasted by FR into LGW.

Agreed re Bmi ba be etc

But
Overall the percentage of people who fly uk Roi is 80/20 on Fr and EI
ba are doing fine on one route no longer serve ex man Bhx LGw to Dublin so Fr really need proper competition to ROI and BA have bigger and higher yield routes to focus on other than ROI ?

DUB-SFO may be announced on Wednesday.

I took this comment from the Travelbiz.ie PPRuNe account.

"It looks as though Aer Lingus are launching their new Dublin-San Francisco flight at last. With Christoph Mueller inviting the trade to lunch on Wednesday it is assumed he will officially announce it then. But watch out for a second announcement ! Might be another new route !!"

eick320, thanks for posting this news - if you are going to cut and paste, it's polite to at least credit your source Airline Route

It's been taken off the site, probably in preparation for their own official announcement either today or tomorrow. The Toronto service showed a 757 seat map with a small Business Class cabin of 12 seats.

About time they confirm them, SNN-BOS will also be daily year round and SNN-JFK will still have the 12 week or so break but operate 5 weekly at other times with the B757.

Delighted for Aer Lingus, Just wondering is there scope for a further route or possibly extra frequencies?

well if JFK-SNN is 5 weekly will they use the 757 on another route on the 2 free days? Prehabs a W style rotation into Dublin.. Or SNN to Orlando route could do very well twice a week in the summer

They have to keep a day off for maintenance of the 3 B757 and some slack is needed for recovery of schedules if any major delays take hold and with connecting passengers it can cost the carrier a lot if flight schedules are not restored as normal as quickly as possible.

They keep a day free for the A330 fleet and that will happen next summer to so no room for extra flights from DUB besides the new ones just announced
