When I was in Dublin about 2 years ago I saw a Gulf Air plane. I think they had just started the service.

GF dropped BAH-DUB at the end of June as part of their restructuring due to their serious financial problems. Obviously it wasn't profitable. They dropped several other longhaul routes around the same time. DUB had only been served for about 18 months, starting in late 2005, 3 flights a week if memory correct.

Aer Lingus was serving DXB but I hear that thats being dropped.

Etihad started AUH/DUB on July 1st and flights are doing very well.

That is not exactly true. GF did not say they weren't making money in DUB. The company when through a complete re-strucutre. Don't forget they also dropped BAH-SYD.

This was the carrot that was dangled to Irish passegners to use this route as a different Kangaroo route to DUB-LHR-SYD.

I saw the EY 330 at DUB on the 11th Sept while waiting for my flight to BRS.

EY is a very good airline, although I much preferred the 345 than 773.

Aer Lingus IS serving DXB until the end of March. No announcement has been made about it being dropped, but I'd say it will!

Is there a large Middle Eastern population in Ireland?

There is a significant, though not large, population, but the main value of a M/E operation is the onward connections. One of EY's advantages (which will increase, as it adds to its network) is its route network out of AUH; EI should have - but didn't work closely with EK; sure, you can interline, but it could have made it work much better and now it's paying the cost. It is expected that EI will withdraw; in that case, EK will hopefully replace them.

EY is going up to 6 w. for the Winter, but I've heard it rumoured (on the Dublin Airport Forum) that they're coming back to 4 weekly for next Summer.
