Does anyone know why Aer Lingus' (newish) Dublin flights aren't in the North Terminal? I know they are not part of OneWorld anymore, but they still codeshare I assume on the DUB-LGW flights? Or is it just the LHR flights which are codeshared?
I'm assuming a lot of people connect onto BA's services at LGW from DUB? Or am I wrong? If they do, surely it would be better if they were all in one terminal?

I can think of two reasons.
Firstly were't EI thinking of leaving oneworld alliance. If they haven't already done so then operating to the North terminal could prove a little problematic. All domestic / CTA flights in the North terminal at Gatwick have to be handled by BA so if EI are looking to move away from BA and Oneworld then that wouldn't be ideal.
Secondly I've heard that more EI pax connect onto VS services rather than BA services at LGW so operating to the South makes sense if this is the case.

I don't know much about LGW... but why not? What's the condition for an airline to use the North Terminal? As a Skyteam member, Delta is using the north terminal and some other non-alliance airlines, like Aer Lingus (such as Lithuanian Airlines, First Choice, Easyjet, Oman Air, etc.) use the North Terminal.
