American Airlines restarts three routes from Dublin

American Airlines is restarting three more transatlantic routes as it ramps up its flying schedule to and from Dublin:

  • Dallas/Fort Worth from 4th April
  • Charlotte from 4th May
  • Chicago from 1st June

All three routes are seasonal, whilst the existing Dublin-Philadelphia flights will continue all-year-round. Dallas and Charlotte are major American Airlines hubs with lots of opportunities to connect.

American Airlines restarts three routes from Dublin

The seasonal routes will operate until 27th October 2023. Oddly, AA doesn’t operate any direct flights from Dublin to New York.

Flights appear to be operated by a combination of Boeing 787 and 777, depending on the route. You can read my recent review of American’s Flagship business class on a Boeing 777 here.

American Airlines is part of the oneworld alliance and a transatlantic joint venture partner together with BA, Aer Lingus, Iberia and Finnair, so you’ll be able to earn and redeem Avios on these flights.

You may even find some low-tax redemptions when starting in Dublin, although be warned that American makes very few Business Class redemption seats available to partners such as BA.

How to earn American Airlines miles from UK credit cards (April 2024)

American Airlines no longer has its own UK credit card.

There is, however, still a way to earn American Airlines miles from a UK credit card

The route is via Marriott Bonvoy. Marriott Bonvoy hotel loyalty points convert to American Airlines miles at the rate of 3:1.

The best way to earn Marriott Bonvoy points is via the official Marriott Bonvoy American Express card. It comes with 20,000 points for signing up and 2 points for every £1 you spend. At 2 Bonvoy points per £1, you are earning (at 3:1) 0.66 American Airlines miles per £1 spent on the card.
