UA to fly DUB-SFO

UA are going to fly DUB-SFO daily next Summer with a 787

Looks like the days of the EI-UA tie up are numbered.

EI has the better schedule for business though by a mile for folks visiting the bay area plus has deals signed with the major IT companies in the valley for tickets. Going to be interesting how this plays out with ticket prices as EI are already insanely cheap.

Hopefully means an end to UA access to reward seats on EI also, might free up a few....

It will mean a swap to AA from UA in the US which means little or no difference, if anything it will be better in ORD as AA terminal is nearer and has the secret bus from domestic to international to avoid the security scrum.

True I guess, maybe we might get a gap with no UA or AA.

United has a bus too. Just go to gate B1 in T1 to get it, as long as you have your boarding pass. Comes every 20 minutes or so. Used it a couple of weeks ago. There were also signs saying you can get the bus the other way too but I haven't had a chance to try that yet.

Even though air Lingus offers a great biz product this will seriously hurt their revenue. This partnership has got to go any day now. I mean neither of them are winning anything.
