Is that the only daytime flight operating from New York to Dublin this year?

Yes, it is. Aer Lingus apparently feels they can do more with Newark (and no connections) than a flight that I used several times.

Well United their partners at EWR.....I do think this will put them under pressure to bring it back in future. With 4 aircraft due next year it could well happen.

Awk it's great, by the time you land, pick up your hold luggage, clear security, get on a bus, drive to Manhatten, it'll be time to get the bus back!

Not so, first off you get US pre clearance at Dublin so when you land at Stewart it’s a domestic flight, just walk out collect your bags and your off...you then have a choice you can jump on the dedicated Norwegian coach ( run by stagecoach) shuttle into downtown NYC in around 60-90 minutes ( bus waits for your flight) or jump on the other dedicated Woodbury Common retail outlet bus to the 240 store retail outlet which takes around 30 minutes, shop until you drop and then back to the airport for your red eye flight home which takes around 5:30 most nights although the record is well below that, of course with the latter option you wouldn’t bother taking any luggage out bound would you?

Interesting idea, but I don’t think the flights are on sale yet? stand to be corrected.

Can think of nothing worse

I think anyone bringing a suitcase or two back from a day trip to NY would certainly attract the attention of customs....

We’ve seen how thin their margins are ex DUB from that chart the released a month or so ago, something like €3 per passenger. If the can get more people to take more bags and spend more cash then it could work very nicely, especially eastbound.

Edit, they’re actually losing €4 per passenger ex DUB, but they’re new markets.

Would not take much notice of that data, speculation at best. Fares are much higher after introductory offers.

The profit listed are for summer onwards for Ireland, and don’t include the dreaded winter death in yield and loads. Ireland isn’t as rosy as they are making out.

Anyone know why American Airlines suddenly removed the cheap £1400 Business Class Return Fares? There was still quite a few seats left!

Fares up to £1900 now.

Shop till you drop and hopefully have your collar felt on landing by the nice ladies and gentlemen of the Eire customs for spending in excess of €430 !

They will know especially on a day trip !

Perhaps just thought it odd that the fares were dropped so quickly.

The Virgin Atlantic fares were on sale for quite a while.

I'm sure he wouldn't have said it unless Westjet, Transat and AC were actually looking at new routes.

I see the daa have announced plans to spend an extra €285 between 2019-2021 on minor infrastructure changes in additional to the €100 million p.a spend. Regulator will allow €267.5 to be recovered.

Plans include:
* T1 Immigration Halls Expanded
* T1/T2 Self Service Check In System Expanded
* South Apron Stands
* T2 Bus Lounge
* Docking System & Fixed Ground Power Units in T1
* Major Taxiway Changes to elevate current bottle neck, dual taxi extended, extra line up points and second Runway 10 line up points, improved pier 4 access, future runway and reduce taxi times.

They'll do well to get all that done for just €285!
