Reply To: Aer Lingus an interesting transatlantic option for UK travellersBack to Forum
Now that Aer Lingus has introduced its new commuter routes from the UK – including Cardiff, Doncaster, Edinburgh, Durham etc. – you can easily fly to the US from these areas. It seems to me it could be a lot easier than rail-linking it to London and dealing with all that hassle. From these smaller airports to Dublin airport (now a very easy airport to navigate and very quiet these days), clearing US immigration in Dublin on most flights, and walking straight out at NY, ORD, BOS etc. looks good.
The fares are very competitive, like £1700 biz return all in, and Aer Lingus has a really good Biz product now – angled, yes, but comfortable, good AVOD, and above all a very small biz cabin on the A330s, with really excellent staff.
I wonder if anybody will use these options?
