Typically from Shannon the flight will go into Santa Maria's airspace LPAZ on here.  They stay with them until 40W, then go to NY Oceanic, you can try to get them on one of the HF feeds typically the HF Atlantic Caribbean (CAR-A) 6577 3455, but some days they may be on others.  Hope that helps.

AMS-AUA won't go on 6577 or 3455 ever.

Depending on the time of day (assuming late morning/afternoon dep from Europe), most likely go from VHF to Shanwick on 8906 then change to Santa Maria at 45N on same freq.  Probably will stay there til 40W then change to either 13354 or 13306 with New York.  At 60W probably a change to either NYC 11330 or 13297 before it leaves oceanic airspace just north of the island.
