Much is being made of the late-season start at BDL, but consider that the folks in Ireland love coming here to shop (Wrentham Outlets, et al). So while it might be the tail end of the summer-weather season, it's the start of the busy shopping season.

Dollar needs to collapse in value for that to really re-start.

It helps but not needed. Europeans have always enjoyed shopping trips to the U.S. because the prices here are so much cheaper. The good news is that the way things are right now in regards to currency exchange rate, demand is not so one sided.

t will have an impact, however the ET operation is a fuel/transit stop on ADD-DUB-LAX. They also operate 2 other fuel only stops at more or less the same time. Some mornings there can be 3x B787 in ET colours on the ramp at DUB (its usally a mix of B777 and B787)

The difference with ADD-LAX-DUB is that it stops in DUB in both directions, allowing people to fly LAX DUB LAX roundtrip, which people do. This is not the case with IAD and YYZ where the eastbound flights operate nonstop. So I think this new EI service will have some impact specifically on the ET LAX route.

s that the old domestic terminal which closed a few years ago, or the IAB? I don't recall the IAB being that old. Also I think it's still in active use - DL must use it to clear customs for their CUN flights.

The IAB isn't going anywhere. DL uses it for CUN. It's Terminal B (The Murphy Terminal) that is being torn down.

Even with the weak euro right now, consumer goods are still a bargain in the States compared to Europe.

ET doesn't sell 5th freedom traffic on the sectors where they only operate in one direction. Wouldn't make sense as few passengers are flying only one way. They also didn't sell 5th freedom traffic when the fuel stops were at FCO, even when they stopped there in both directions.

So where's the announcement for Miami?

Clearly Aer Lingus didn't get the memo about the world's most unbelievably high-yielding destination. What on earth are they thinking?!?!

Then again, Aer Lingus doesn't even *have* an F product, and (lest we forget) one simply MUST have F for the ultra-discriminating denizens of South Florida.

I get the sarcasm   but lets not forget that the recent IAG takeover of EI has certainly affected some of their plans. I still think it will happen but with OneWorld now fully in control of the Ireland and UK markets there is no need to hurry.

Maybe, maybe not. I understand IAG will be a driving force behind potentially starting the route, but really what does DUB-MIA offer that LHR-MIA isn't already covering? There isn't a big Irish population in and around MIA, and MCO tends to be more of the preferred vacation market.

I believe it did quite well but it may have become a victim of aircraft availability. This summer Aer Lingus hired in a 767 for their SNN-BOS service which freed up the 757 for the 3rd daily JFK flight, unfortunately the 767 hire in proved very unpopular and seems unlikely to return.

A fourth 757 is arriving but that looks set to operate DUB-IAD daily, up from the current 4 weekly A332, the other 757 remains on DUB-YYZ and the remaining two stay at SNN meaning no room for the peak summer 3rd JFK flight.
