Aer Lingus vs. Delta?

Aer Lingus vs. Delta?

  1. Sheldon Cooper Enthusiast

    Would you recommend the new Aer Lingus business class or Delta A330 business class to get to Amsterdam? Connections, mileage price etc… are irrelevant.

    Welcome [USER=1040]@Sheldon Cooper Enthusiast[/USER] – Lucky hasn’t reviewed the updated Aer Lingus Business Class yet and as we know, he doesn’t fly Delta a whole lot. 🙂

    Did find a couple of reviews of each of these product from fellow Boarding Area bloggers – though not necessarily on the same routes:

    And Chris McGinnis of Travel Skills reviewed the Aer Lingus A330: [URL]http://travelskills.com/2015/03/25/trip-report-aer-lingus-new-business-class/[/URL]

    Which one is best for you will depend on what you value in a trip. One thing to consider: if flying Aer Lingus via Dublin, there is a US Pre-clearance facility there so you’ll land in the US like a domestic flight since you’ll already have cleared Customs.

    Thank you so much for the insight. I will take it into account.

    Also keep in mind that Aer Lingus does not have any J seating on their short haul fleet, only Y.

    Pitch is not as bad as Air Berlin which operates the same way, but it still a tight fit.
