Though is there DUB operation even profitable? Or is it all just 5th freedom traffic? between USA - Ireland and Ireland - Africa?

They could start DFW since EY left, if the Canada ties are open, then they can start YVR, YUL, YYC, and YYZ. Starting ATQ would make sense starting YVR and YYZ as well. Hope they do well, miss Gulf Air presences.

That will be good if they can start IAH, tons of traffic to BAH, DMM, plus connections to Middle East, South Asia, and etc.

Maybe aligning with codeshare with UA, or another partner.
