Re: If DUB & EI transatlantic was to massively expand?

Clearly ‘massive’ meant more than just the 8 on order & the point of this non serious chat was to discuss where those LRs could fly to. Not everyone has a great knowledge of Eastern us airports & don’t see point of this? It’s an aviation discussion forum yeah?

The AC YYZ-DUB route is so unreliable it may as well be Rouge operating it! Then again the Rouge YVR flights have had some problems too, only the YUL MAX flight seems to operate fairly reliably.
