i think your getting confused with LAX as in EI-LAX the aircraft as this is soon possibly being scrapped and replaced.

Los Angeles the route is extremely successful and is being upgauged from A332 to A333

EI-LAX the aircraft is the oldest A330 still in the fleet (1999 build) and there is talk it may be scrapped as 2 brand new HGW A333s are being delivered over the winter and one may just be used as a replacement.

I'd be very surprised to see Seattle go double daily any time soon, the most likely west coast destination to go double daily would be San Francisco.

Seattle does appear to be doing very well though, it'll probably see the A333 more often now that additional HGW versions are on the way.

No real surprise here as the loads have been reported as extremely low by various sources, but on the positive side the Cathy route to HK appears to be doing well.

Id love to see what the airline projected for the route, as I was skeptical of this one from the moment of the announcement. There is a Dublin-China market, but its to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, not Shenzhen.

Norwegian to end t/a services from Ireland

https://www.rte.ie/news/business/201...lantic-routes/

Sad news; the Max issues are of course a key factor and the cost of hiring the Evelop A330 must be fairly high (even though it is more often than not full), but even if the Maxes were still operating as normal, would the service have been sustainable?

Is it just Irish bases that have been affected? Maybe I’m wrong but I thought that they gained their Irish AOC by operating flights from Ireland. Does this mean they lose that AOC also?

I think the promise of flights from Ireland (especially Cork) helped the lobbying effort to get their US Foreign Air Carrier Permit in the face of some of the US unions, but I'm not sure that it was linked to the AOC - do Norwegian's Ireland-North America flights even use their Irish AOC?

Wonder now about those claiming MOL was lying when he was indicating things are going to be bad in the airline industry very soon.

If Hainan EDI rumoured to have a seasonal return S20 will it still be a bolt on DUB triangle route to bolster prospects?
Lets hope all the chopping and changing, late opening of reservations and previous dire loads mean this isn't a dead 'Peking' Duck .

I believe the direct DUB-PEK were regularly carrying 80% LF, no idea about yield.

No idea about it returning, I think they either need to commit to a direct service or don't bother.

Passenger numbers have dropped by 11.3% across the network since the HK protests kicked off. HK airport was shut on a few occasions by the protesters. I know a couple who flew DUB-HKG a couple of weeks ago who needed a police escorted bus to get out of the terminal, bus was attacked etc. I also know several people who decided not to book CX as they usually do for trips to Oz, NZ etc over the next few months.

Prior to the recent unrest they were always chirping about how well the route was performing and were hinting at a daily service. I wouldn’t be too worried long term.
