Won­der­ing if any­one has tried the Dublin to New York JFK Delta One [busi­ness class] ser­vice, if it was any good and what I can ex­pect? I’m try­ing to de­cide be­tween them, United, Amer­i­can Air­lines or Aer Lingus.

My pref­er­ence would be Aer Lingus. Trav­el­ling from Dublin to JFK, you clear im­mi­gra­tion in Dublin, and busi­ness class pas­sen­gers have ac­cess to the air­port’s 51st and Green lounge, which has run­way views and is next to the gates. As far as I know, you can dine in their JFK lounge pre-flight, if in busi­ness. The in-flight ser­vice is gen­er­ally very good. There is also an arrivals lounge in Dublin, which is small but pleas­ant, and has nice show­ers.

I use the Dublin-US ser­vice with Amer­i­can. I tend to go for a late morn­ing de­par­ture and take the first BA flight from Heathrow to con­nect. I use Amer­i­can over the oth­ers and ben­e­fit from suf­fi­cient Avios for more than a cou­ple of Eu­ro­pean runs (ex­clud­ing Lon­don), amaz­ing busi­ness class fares to the US, use of the Global En­try sys­tem into the US (pre-clear­ance into the US for those who don’t have Global En­try) and a busi­ness class lounge af­ter pre-clear­ance in Dublin.

I think that United uses B757s [among other air­craft], just like AA, on the Dublin-New York route. Likely to be a very sim­i­lar of­fer­ing. If Delta has a larger, newer air­craft with all-aisle seat­ing in busi­ness, it may be worth a go. If you are Oneworld Emer­ald, AA’s flag­ship lounge in JFK is very good (for a US air­line lounge).
