It could just be a case that the HU website is being updated or the route is yet to be loaded and everyone has got their knickers in a twist
The winter schedule only showed for both airports briefly until mid November for a week or two after the announcement.

Amazing figures , flew to LAX with Aer lingus earlier this month and both flights I was sitting beside people connecting from Europe, Munich and Liverpool to be exact . Took in the 51st and green lounge , very impressive with it and amazing views of the runway .

I have saw mixed views on the South Gates, flew home this morning with Aer Lingus. Arrived at 05.30 for an 06.30 to BHX (work up late!!), checked in bag and printed boarding cards in 5 minutes with Self Service Desks (EI app doesn't allow Multi City Passes). Went up to security at 05.35 and the timer said 20 minute queue (got worried when I saw this and gate 335 on pass), but had cleard by 05.45, was on the bus at gate 335 after a quick walk at 05.55 and sitting on the aircraft at 06.00. They had 3 buses waiting to shuttle passengers and boarding was more relaxed as passengers don't all arrive together. Most were on by 06.15 apart from two who didnt board until 06.25. Left on time and taxi time was less than 10 minutes (both runways in uae). S Gates are ran well and still better than boarding with Ryanaur.

The place was busy and security could be improved with more lines open but up to 20 mins is fine IMO at peak times.

The only problem was late steps in BHX but we did land 20 minutes early and had to squeeze onto a single bus.

EI have the exit from arrivals covered advertising T/A flight.

Norwegian is to fly its first ever route from Europe to Canada – and it’ll be out of Dublin from March 31, 2019.

The new daily service will between Dublin and Toronto Hamilton, with fares starting from €189 one way from today on www.norwegian.com/ie.

The nonstop flights from Dublin to Hamilton – Toronto will be operated using brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft offering 189 seats in a single-class cabin.

I really canít get over the level of expansion from DUB on Canadian routes in recent years, and I suspect itís only going to keep growing with EIN and TSC A321LRs coming online next year and WJA and ACA getting more MAXs.

Huge expansion to Canada, but so much of it is going to Toronto. That's now 5 airlines operating to Toronto region airports. Only London matches that; even Paris and New York only have four. I wonder could it be oversaturation. And with all other Canadian airports being seasonal, and with some fairly substantial places like Ottawa, Edmonton and Calgary not having a service, you'd wonder if it's the best option (allowing that of that list Ottawa is probably the only one possible on the equipment).

range for a start.. then trona is a big city so visiting friends and relations PLUS business is an attractive, round the year market

even Canadians won' t go to Ottawa and Edmonton & Calgary have always struggled

Canada was very undeserved (most went via LHR) however in recent years there was been an increase in tourism here/there and of course people moving to Canada. WestJet and Norwegian have/will attract a new market that didn't exist before just like Ryanair can do in Europe. AC have moved to promote US connections and of course EI have there own connections particularly from Abu Dhabi taking up a lot of seats.

YQB easily in range of the MAX and NEO, could be a runner for someone. If Halifax and Saint Johnís work....if EI timed it well for French connections it might have potential.

TAP ceo has said DUB is under consideration for 2019s route announcements. They flew LIS/FAO until late 2006 if I am not mistaken. .
