Does Scoot have any intentions on going that far at all? They do fly to Australia and they'll start Athens before too long, but Dublin seems quite a stretch to me ...

Why would someone want to fly AMS-DUB-BKK for example? The DUB-BKK flight would fly them straight back over AMS again. DUB is interesting for flights to America since that's what's closest from Dublin from Europe. A flight AMS-DUB-JFK would make sense, a flight AMS-DUB-BKK would not.

It would improve profitability dramatically. And DUB is known to hand out fifth freedom rights easily. ET already does that.
