I don't think it was ever a serious proposal. Seems to have been comments the CEO made in an interview that got taken out of context. Will hopefully be launched eventually though.

Over 1.8 million passengers in February up 3%, guess numbers would have been a little higher had weather been better.

Europe 890,000 +4%
UK 737,000 -2%
Transatlantic 152,00- +20%
Other international 61,000 +11%
Domestic 8,000 +18%

Year to date over 3.8 million +5%

Wasnt really a runner. It was a throwaway comment from the EI CEO which got taken a lot more seriously than it should have been by the Irish media.
LAS is on their list but it doesnt that the RoI potential as other routes, ie PHL, DEN, DFW.

Good news for Dublin and for a lot of people with business links to China.
Is having 2 of the flights direct and the other 2 through Edinburgh not a bit of an odd way of doing it though?

The flight routes PEK-EDI-DUB-PEK or PEK-DUB-EDI-PEK, on an alternate. So both DUB and EDI get a 4 weekly service, customers can select non-stop routings to both destinatons on both inbound and outbound. Its pretty clever scheduling, really.

A bit surprised that, outwith the spotters, theres very little interest in this story and new schedule. i thought it was being sold as a major coup

Upgrade works to lighting etc Both runways have been shortened between 21.15-04.30 so expect delays over the next few weeks.

There is usually a launch event here in time.

Trying to compete with Ryanair? Good luck with that.

Very easy to do when you're a renowened package holiday company. You do realise that they compete with Ryanair on many routes?

TUI operate with loads of over 90% all season and have flown to DLM and LCA before. They see Ryanair as no threat and have actually grown capacity to some core Ryanair markets a lot this year.

Ryanair will be out of DLM as soon as any marketing runs out. Cyprus will probably last with FR, Irish tourism there is currently 91% below its peak and has only started grow since Cobalt started LCA (first direct flight in years). Its more likely than not FR would not of considered PFO if Cobalt wasn't here given they have been operating out of LCA and now PFO for quiet some time and not started DUB.
