I'm probably the only one who has suggested DTW here - within 757/321LR range and has a sizeable community of Irish extraction as well as a decent business base (outside the old City Council area) as well as effectively everyone in Windsor who uses it in preference to paying Canadian airport tax.

SA is well served by BA some which had a few flights a day and a partner airline in Comair in SA. Really don't think the market is there for direct flights from Dublin. Just my opinion though

I'd say another Canadian destination is likely, YUL.....?

That said, I couldn't confidently predict EI's next TATL route atm. Possibly DFW but I wouldn't hang my hat on it.
I genuinely thought he had Dismissed Dallas and was suggesting Detroit. Personally I agree that DFW (and MIA) were the obvious new routes for 2017. Amongst other things it opens up the Caribbean, Central and South America via network partners. While Iberia has a great LatAm network, DUB-MAD connectivity isn't great.

Can't see it; too long, too thin. Plenty of service through London and no natural O/D base to ground it on.

With regards to Etihad and the 787 it is well known that it will be transferring over to the 787 at some stage even Etihad themselves have said it.

Old article but they've repeated it recently at trade shows
Have to say I think the B789 would be a big downgrade from the A332. I've been on a couple and Economy looks very cramped. Even more so than the 10-abreast B77Ws.

Im not sure thats the case if SQ were to serve the route with the a350, I think 10/28 can take such an aircraft, (open to being wrong on that one) Certainly the 777 and 380 would be severely payload restricted and frankly too big an aircraft for such a route.

In relation to SQ ever serving Dublin, I wouldn’t rule it out in a few years, as they seem to be slowly targeting secondary cities in Europe with Stockholm and Dusseldorf recently added in a fight to take back some passengers off the Middle East 3.

Don’t see EI ever serve a route to Singapore. Somebody can quote me now, ~”il eat my own hat” if they do

I expect that any service would be with their low cost brand Scoot. I wouldn't put up with that for a thirteen hour flight.

Neither would I. I suspect you may be right as regards Scoot being on the scene first.

Probably wishful thinking here but what leads me to think otherwise (as regards sq) is, they have said years back(2005) that Dublin was a route that appealed to them but for the runway length. But now with Dublin ranked as the fastest-growing airport in Europe and a new runway on the way just maybe its back on the radar again.

How close is DUB to its capacity in terms of pax numbers? The new runway will surely fuel a bit of an increase in routes & with IAG probably routing a few UK/EU pax through DUB for transatlantic routes are we in for a return to the circa 2007 ****show?
Perhaps time to invest in infrastructure rather than tax cuts...

Thought that Terminals capacity is said to be 35 million annually so still a bit to go but remember the old T1 handled 23 million plus in 2007/2008 before T2. Pier 2 is now segregated and therefore can be used for more flights; there is the South apron Gates and 5G (with bussing) so I'd say the Terminals are fine for a number of years - in general. See separate thread about passport queues!

T1 at 23 had the portakabins, car park check in, area 14 etc. It was a particularly nasty experience

I'll never forget those security ques in the mornings, I recall two security points in T1 at the time, both would be seriously long and chaotic ques.
I don't remember car park check in though!!

Security at T1 most mornings in the peak the queue is now back to the barcode gates and beyond. Don't get me wrong the staff are professional and a joy to deal with, and go as fast as they can but the numbers mean it.

( BTW not all belts are always operating either even in the peak , complain to DAA about staffing on twitter or any channel you can find )

Why did they ever close the 2nd security screen in T1 anyway at the Ryanair end, that always struck me as silly
