Re: Confirmed: EI to MSP and YUL in 2019

Coming a little late to the party but I thought I would chime in about a few things that I feel like people are forgetting. First, on MSP-DUB, just to echo what others have said, those are two quite powerful economies they will do fine. Same with YUL-DUB. on Delta's response, I could see them addin...

Re: Aer Lingus rumor - announcement 9/12

If MSP is indeed one of the cities why would IAG send EI from DUB first instead of BA from LHR when there has to be more O&D to London. I understand DL already has flights to LHR, but BA would have so many connection options that EI @ DUB doesn’t. Plus wouldn’t a 788 be a better plane to open a...

Re: Aer Lingus rumor - announcement 9/12

Ireland is a country of 4.7 million people. That's about the size of Alabama in terms of population. Why would they need routes to those destinations, especially when a connection in London is half an hour flight time away? In case you're unfamiliar with Ireland, I'd highlight two points which easi...
