Indeed, original Terminal A hosted DC-10s and 767s back in the day, and DL brings the occasional 767 to new terminal A. The issue with the A330 is the wingspan, and Aer Lingus' gate (A7) would block another one if the jet is parked there. Gate A9 is the only one that could reasonably accommodate an A330 with minimal disruption. Since DL and Aer Lingus are sharing gate A7, such accommodations could be made, I suppose. I'm pretty sure you would still end up partially blocking at least A7 with an a330, though. A 767 would be fine with no problems.
I do think that an actual London flight (say, American or DL to LHR) would be successful for the local market, but the usage of a slot would be more profitable from LHR to another destination, so I doubt AA or DL would do it with their 757 utilization as it is. DUB has an easy connection to London so that traffic may have peeled off but from the last stats I looked at London was the largest connecting intl market out of the Hartford/Springfield area.
