As for Dublin - Dallas remain to be convinced of the business case to be honest.

Are there really that many that somehow need to connect to for instance Tallahassee, Killine, Amarillo and the other similar forty or so mid state towns that make up the main points from Dallas. It might claim to be among the most connected on the planet however the VAST majority of the routes are simply feeders into the big city and a railway type regional hub of rather insignificant global importance. Yeah iĒll wait for the bashing from Texans but just look at the rather limited number of international routes that actually exist.
Over on the Blueish site they have a thread on the monthly foreign long hauls and frankly the numbers are laughable.

I will use it regularly. I'm headed for Austin, but I'll take a non-stop flight and a three hour drive over a connection any day of the week.

Suggest you keep an eye on the consolidators about 6 to 8 weeks out because there will almost certainly be significant fare dumping in the Q3 period of 2019 especially via the UK with or without air departure duty.

Recession IS an inevitable consequence of a certain event in March combined with notable slowing also being recorded across the EU and even signs of weakness in the US .

Cheers I'll keep all that in mind

Read on another forum earlier that Air Baltic are returning, 4 per week to Riga. Be nice to see another A220 in, the Swiss ones are getting boring now ;-)

Rutan16,
Any point served in North America by a network carrier will do well. The amount of connecting passengers is incredible, coming from all over the country to Dublin, and from Dublin originating pax who can connect there.

AA being the big network carrier at DFW will already carry plenty of passengers on this link. They have access to industry data showing the level of revenue and pax on DUB DFW... these guys take very calculated risks, they wouldn't be investing a 787 into this launch unless there was a solid business rationale to do so... let's hope..

Tech ( Dell et al ) needs DFW DUB. ( Similar reasoning to SEA DUB ).

HU to apparently fly twice weekly to Shenzen starting 25 Feb. They were on sale but quickly removed. Interestig one if it goes ahead.

Wonder if this is paired with a reduced PEK frequency?

On the other hand, they're launching a PEK to OSL service 3/wk, which would mean a daily westbound flight from PEK.

Shenzhen isnít exactly brilliant for connections to locations other than China. Thereís hardly that much demand when Shanghai is still not served and the major hub of Hong Kong has only recently got a service?

So they've launched a flight to Shenzen with roughly 5 weeks notice, twice per week and only running for 2 months? No wonder the whole group is going under.

Looks like summer schedule not loaded but starting in 5 weeks shows poor planning.

Perhaps it was well planned and promoted to the 12 million citizens of Shenzen?

Prehaps.

Apparently slot issues are the reasons summer 19 not released yet.

I thought PEK wasnt exactly a rip roaring success (based purely on awkward double drop CAA stats). Seems odd to be launching another at such short notice.
Any bets on what they'll still be running in a years time?
