Its going well AFAIK. I hope AA open more routes but theywill probably wait until the SNN stopover is weakened.

Quoting EI321 (Reply 1):

Please explain your theory.

Anymore comments on the ORD-DUB or BOS-SNN service is welcomed!

Thanks!

I'll be flying ORD-DUB the day after tomorrow, and DUB-ORD on Sunday. The flight to Dublin is about 60 percent full, the return flight is only about 25 percent full. I will post a full trip report with photos when I return.

well, the lfights for tomorrow look OK.

I came close to flying them in December, from SSN to BOS and this was when non reviing out of LHR seemed impossible. But yet there were 60 seats on the SSN-BOS.

So bottom line is dont know how that route is right now.

FXramper, the stopover rule - which currently requires one flight from SNN for every one from DUB - holds back demand at DUB. From November, however, the rules change due to the new Open Skies agreement (which includes a new bilateral between Ireland and the US); the ratio will be 3:1 in Dublin's favour, which basically means that AA can add two more n/s flights from Dublin without more flights ex SNN.

The impression I get is that the ORD flights from DUB are doing well, but that the SNN-BOS route is not, at present, doing too well. However, this is the off season and Summer will probably be a lot better.

I flew ORD - DUB on AA on Dec. 27 and back on Jan. 7. The flights were packed full both ways. It was a very comfortable flights, good food, decent entertainment. I am actually planning on purchasing another AA ORD - DUB - ORD ticket for next New Years when it goes on sale next month.

In the summer, it is 7x a week, and in winter 5x a week (ORD - DUB not Monday or Wednesday; DUB - ORD not Tuesday or Thursday).

Keep in mind BOS-SNN is competed by EI....guess ORD-DUB is too though? I know in the summer the BOS-SNN are pretty full.
