In the early 90s, EI called in at MAN on five Dublin - Europe routes. Apart from CPH and ZRH, they also served AMS, but I've forgotten the other two!

I have a question.....does EI fly to any Asian or Middle East destinations, and if not, why? Do they have any plans to do so in future?

Dubai is due to start later this month with possible ten other destinations on a code share with EK.

Hmmm, wonder if EI CEO's last job has got something to do with this? Big grin

Aer Lingus at one stage operated a hub-concept at MAN, virtually all Dublin-Europe flights were routed through Manchester for many years, helping fill the aircraft and allowing service to destinations that would probably otherwise not have been viable at the time.

In 1989 the following were served via Manchester

Amsterdam
Copenhagen
Dusseldorf
Hamburg
Milan
Paris
Zurich

The 5th freedom Manchester-Europe services started in the 1960s with BAC1-11s and later operated with 737s until the late 1990s when the DUB-MAN-ZRH route finally closed after being operated with the BAE146 towards the end.

There was of course MAN-SNN-JFK operated for winter 1994/1995 with the A330. The route ended fairly quickly as Continental had announced non-stop MAN-EWR flights for 1995, together with the existing BA and AA service on the MAN-JFK route the market was already crowded. In fact thinking about it I'm not even sure MAN-SNN-JFK did ever operate with the A330... Perhaps someone could confirm?

Aer Lingus at one stage also planned a MAN-SNN/DUB-BOS flight with the A330 for 1995, but this idea was dropped when the JFK flight was dropped. The Manchester-based A330 seemed to be an attempt to fill the SNN Trans-Atlantic flights when they were initially separated from the DUB services, which given the short-lived nature of the services indicates the experiment wasn't a success!
