Iberia or AerLingus?
I am planning a trip to Malaga Spain (AGP). My best choices are AerLingus out of BOS or Iberia out of JFK. I am planning on purchasing a Business Class ticket. Repositioning costs are all similar. I am trying to figure out which one I should choose. The DUB to AGP flight appears to be configured with international lie flat seating (although still listed as Economy with free premium seats for those purchasing a Biz Class fare). Which would you guys choose? (It doesn’t appear I can go wrong with either).
I’d go with AerLingus. It does look like they fly an A330 to Malaga, which is still almost a 3hour flight. It doesn’t look like you’ll get “business-class amenities” but still nice to have another lie-flat seat for the last 3 hours of your journey, whereas Iberia will fly a typical European business class (coach seat with a blocked middle).
Also, on your return back to the States, you will have pre-clearance in Dublin so you can land back in the US as a domestic flight.
Personally I’d lean towards the longer flight and shorter connection. I’m assuming the outward is a red eye and if I’m paying for a J fare I’d rather have as much sleep time as possible.
Both make good points. Thank you. I am going to play with repositioning costs and figure it out.
