Royal Air Maroc

I heard a rumour that RAM would launch a Dublin route. I heard Agadir, but Casablanca would sound more probable.

Has anybody else heard anything to this effect?
I didn't see anything on the previous pages on this thread.

They don’t have slots for S20 Currently.
i would expect Casablanca as MAN gets that route with RAM

CX HKG bookings been blocked to full fare buckets only until Jul. Seems ominous.

Take a look at Airline Routes to see how CX are 'culling" flights to almost everywhere - they made route cancellations/services reductions to flights to 53 destinations on their network yesterday. LGW's dai;y flight is cancelled, MAN reduced from 4 weekly, LHR seems to have full schedule at present, so re-routing MAN & LGW (and any DUB passengers?) from cancelled flights is comparatively easy for them.

Unsurprising given the outbreak in China

Honestly, I don't know why anyone got excited about this one.

It was a flight from Dublin to Helsinki that happened to connect to another flight to Shanghai.

There are a bucket load of destinations served "via Amsterdam", "via Dubai", "via Frankfurt", et al. What makes (made) this one different?

Isn't it a flight from Shanghai that stops at Helsinki - no plane change?

The flight originates in Shanghai and operates daily to Helsinki. The same aircraft then operates to MAN 3X weekly, DUB 2X weekly and RKV 2X weekly. This is the same as Eithiopian operate to DUB 3x weekly via VIE (increases to 4X weekly from June). In each case, the return flight operates via HEL to PVG and VIE to ADD. No change of aircraft in either case.

From the perspective of the average passenger what difference does that really make? Presumably they still have to disembark and re-clear security during the stopover?

I flew from DUB to ADD via BRU recently. We were able to stay on the plane in BRU and await the boarding passengers. It was definitely more convenient than getting off, reclearing security, and boarding again, even more so if I'd had to board another plane (and therefore take the risk of a delayed connection etc). I don't know what the procedure is in the other direction, but I suspect that it might be the same, because Ethiopian in that case wasn't selling 5th-freedom tickets between BRU and DUB.

Now arguably a 2/week 1-stop service is not necessarily a big deal in terms of the overall connectivity that's on offer between DUB and PVG, but the fact that it was a Chinese airline is relevant because that's the way that a lot of Chinese inbound tourists to Ireland would choose to travel.

European airports view transit passengers somewhat differently, and allow them to remain on the plane unlike the UK

It’s not only the UK. Every time I’ve taken flights with stops I’ve had to re-clear — from memory BKK, DMK, MEL, TPE, and SIN.

if you can stay on board that changes the equation a little, but I sill find it hard to get excited about anything other than a nonstop.

When I checked some dates in March, CX looked to be down to 2 x daily. Isn't it normally 5 x daily for LHR?
MAN has survived so far but down to 2 x weekly

Hi,
Last night I noticed an Omni Air 767 Freighter en route SOF/IAD turn around over eastern Atlantic west of Ireland and then land at DUB (how bored was I?!).
Anyone here know what was going on?

Why does DUB need to keep two terminals open?

Why on earth does DUB need to keep two terminals open for just 900 passengers a day? Do they not need to shield their business from the financial impact of Covid-19?
