In reading a few topics in the past, I believe there is a clause in the US-Ireland agreement that says that EI can only serve a few select destinations in the United States. My quesiton is, what routes would Aer Lingus want to serve if this was not in place?

SFO, PHL and MIA have all been mentioned as well as YYZ in Canada.

Miami and San Francisco have been the ones they desire the most.

I find it amazing that these forigen carriers can come in and actually be profitable.

Example: Here in Dallas, AAL has a daily T7 fly to London, but so does BAW. Infact, the aircraft only depart some 30 minutes apart. Now either they are keeping eachothers prices down by doing this, or there just really is that high of a load out of dallas that warrants 2 diffrent carriers.

When I planned my trip to holland, I rode BAW...they were just a few bucks cheaper than AAL, plus they had the PTV's in Y class. Same airplane too.


So how can Aer Lingus honestly come into a place like Miami, where I am sure that there are other airlines that service Ireland, and expect to turn a profit? Are the loads really that high?

Look at IAH and many other airports. At IAH KLM and CO both go to Amsterdam, BA and CO both go to London however it is Heathrow and Gatwick, Air France and CO both go to Paris, etc.

Jetter2,

Currently, there is no direct service offered by any carrier from Miami to Ireland. I'm sure EI's target market is the large Irish tourist market which take vacation in Florida. Presently, these passengers probably route on EI to JFK/BOS/ORD where they connect with AA or connect in LHR to one of BA's 3 daily 744s or AAs777. I'm sure EI has looked at the figures. As well as the tourists I'm sure EI would be looking to exploit AA's huge presence at MIA with connections to the Carribean, Latin and South America as well as the Southern US.

I guess they would want to serve Oneworld hubs.

MIA would be good for EI. A lot of O&D as well as connecting traffic to the Caribbean.

If EI wants to directly serve more USA cities, then Ireland should remove the Shannon stopover requirement, so can non-stop to/from Dublin. Clearly MCO, MIA, would be prime tragets for new routes EI wants to directly serve.

Couldn't agree more.

Before the AA scaleback at STL they had mentioned flying here in a press release. I'm quite sure we're off the radar at this point.
