|Quoting EIDL (Reply 93):|
Disappointing to see these routes failing for EIR and indeed something of a concern as to how well EI are marketing their DUB T/A hub, particularly when you consider that these 3 airports serve regions with relatively large populations. Clearly if some of the flight timings were unsuitable for T/A connections, they were at risk from the start, but I often wondered if a somewhat smaller airliner than the ATR-72 with improved timing/frequency might be more appropriate for development of some of the EIR UK regional routes. Obviously however the economics of operating smaller airliners may well militate against this. Hopefully, at least on the CWL route, we might see a codeshare with BE replacing these flights.
