canucklad – Re: IAG and FR co-operation on feeder flights

I believe you are correct. As I mentioned in my news piece, FR has no wish to fly into LHR so any, what I would call “quasi” or “partial” interlining, would take place at Dublin or Shannon or, perhaps, another IAG hub such as MAD.

IAG has already mentioned the future possibility of launching narrow-bodied A321LR neo transatlantic flights from Shannon.

I would imagine EI would still operate the main feeder routes (these would have normal interline facilities) so only FR’s flights from the points not served by EI would be involved. For example, from DUB, FR flies to numerous points in the former Eastern Europe. It also flies to various smaller destinations in France.

Irish Independent carried a news story last month.
