American Airlines are opening the first direct flights between Texas and Ireland in June, with a new service from Dallas to Dublin. With Dallas being a major hub for AA, it will open up easier connections for passengers.
It also opens up another potential one-stop service from Ireland to Australia. Passengers could choose to fly Dublin to Dallas on American, then transfer to the Qantas service from Dallas to Sydney. Flying the long way around could be fun.
Dallas to Dublin Advertising
For some reason, I am always interested in seeing airline advertising. Cathay Pacific had a prominent stand at Taste of Dublin last year, where I got to enjoy some delicious Asian food. With American, I spotted some bus advertising on my way to work.
Quite eye catching with that bold, “Howdy, Dallas” text. American have been flying to Ireland for years, so people are probably well used to the brand by now, so making the new city the focus point is the correct thing to do.
Apparently the secret Internet Gestapo have been watching me, because I also received targeted advertising when visiting web sites. You can see that above. Similar to the bus advertising, I see Dublin Airport are also mentioned, which leads me to believe they may be offering some marketing support.
Dallas to Dublin is a seasonal route, operating from 6 June to 28 September 2019. Covering the busy summer season, it is one of a plethora of new routes at Dublin Airport this year.
Operated by the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, flights will leave Dublin at 15:45 and arrive 9 hours and 40 minutes later at 19:25. From the USA, flights will leave at 23:05, landing in Ireland at 13:50 the following day.
