DUBLIN TO JFK – DELTA ONE
POST Andrew DATE June 5, 21:18
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).
