As regards FR, reap what you sow.
It left last night. Was towed off the runway on arrival Saturday and they flew parts to fix but issues with them as well until more arrived on yesterdays scheduled flight.

There was an hydraulic issue on an A350 at MAN and an A350 at DUB, 2 different a/c and 2 completely unrelated causes.

Sounds like idle speculation but a person on social media seems to think American will add DFW-DUB/MUC in 2019. Not sure I see it but guess 3-4 weekly on the 787 could work.

Dublin Airport has opened a new €16 million facility designed specifically for passengers who are transferring from one flight to another.

Built adjacent to Pier 4 close to Terminal 2, the new transfer area will greatly enhance Dublin Airport’s ability to compete for transfer traffic between Europe and North America and improve the quality of the product available for transferring passengers.

The new building has the capacity to welcome four times more connecting passengers than currently being handled, according to Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.

The new three-story facility comprises airline information desks, boarding card checkpoints, immigration and customs facilities for transfer passengers to complete a one-stop flight connection process within Pier 4. It also accommodates an additional access route for passengers bussed from other areas of the airport.
Eliminates standard security again.

Origin of traffic heavily ex US according to these stats:

Dublin Airport’s top five transatlantic connecting routes are as follows:

• Chicago – Heathrow

• Boston – Heathrow

• Boston – Paris CDG

• Amsterdam – New York JFK

• Boston – Manchester

Last time i checked, Cathay business class was a grand (£1,000) cheaper out of DUB than MAN. Can’t be just the tax difference surely?
for the price conscious certainty worth hopping over to DUB.

J going east has always been really competitive than going west. Perhaps a combination of a relatively new route and saturation in the market. UK J tax is £156?

Worth checking a sample of dates because it could be a case of high loads on a particularly date.

JFK is still onsale on their website so it hasn't been cancelled and i'd be very surprised if AA cancelled their New York to Dublin route.

AA won't update the website until the weekend if you go by how they did it before now. DUB-JFK was never a route important to AA, it was opened because they moved a B752 and not many places they could send it to instead.

Really surprised they are deploying 789 over 788, they must be confident.

IALPA/Fórsa has written to the government stating that the planned northern runway at Dublin will limit operations as it won't be long enough.
In a letter seen by the Sunday Independent, IALPA's safety and technical director, Captain John Goss, said the length of an airport runway limited its connectivity.Capt Goss said pilots calculated the maximum possible take-off weight before each flight, but planes departing Dublin for the Far East would not be able to take off at full capacity owing to the length of the new northern runway.

Pilots just like a lot of runway in front of them, Cathay seem to do OK off the existing runway at DUB which is shorter. SQ also manage the 13 hour MAN-SIN with an A350 off 23R which is 2897m declared TORA. These services wouldn't be operating if the payloads were uneconomic. We're not flying 747 Classics and DC-8s anymore. What's the problem?
