    Default Flying Aer-Lingus over the pond

    Yes, I know it's General and I know you cheeky scamps will all want to add the prefix Cunni in your replies, but has anyone flown over t'Atlantic with Aer Lingus. . Any bloody good?

    I remember reading somewhere that they do immigration in Dublin, so when you land stateside, you go straight through.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    Clearing immigration in Ireland is a time-saver, but maybe choose one of the US/European airlines for the journey rather than Aer Lingus.

    Are they that bad? TBH its working out better with them as its B'ham Int (only 30 mins away from house) to Dublin, then Dub to Boston.

    All the rest are flying from Heathrow.

    Always reminds me of this joke.
    er Lingus Flight 101 was flying from Heathrow to Dublin one night,with
    Paddy the Pilot, and Shamus the co-pilot.
    As they approached Dublin airport, they looked out the front window.
    "B'jeesus" said Paddy "Will ye look at how fookin short dat runway is".
    "You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy" replied Shamus. "Dis is gonna be one a'de
    trickiest landings you're ever gonna see" said Paddy.
    "You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy" replied Shamus.
    "Right Shamus. When I give de signal, you put de engines in reverse" said
    Paddy.
    "Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus.
    "And den ye put de flaps down straight away" said Paddy
    "Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus.
    "And den ye stamp on dem brakes as hard as ye can" said Paddy
    "Right, I'll be doing dat" replied Shamus.
    "And den ye pray to de Mother Mary with all a' your soul" said Paddy
    "I be doing dat already" replied Shamus.
    So they approached the runway with Paddy and Shamus full of nerves and
    sweaty palms. As soon as the wheels hit the ground, Shamus put the engines
    in reverse, put the flaps down, stamped on the brakes and prayed to Mother
    Mary with all of his soul.

    Amidst roaring engines, squealing of tyres and lots of smoke, the plane
    screeched to a halt centimetres from the end of the runway, much to the
    relief of Paddy and Shamus and everyone on board.
    As they sat in the cockpit regaining their composure, Paddy looked out the
    front window and said to Shamus
    "Dat has gotta be de' shortest fookin runway I have EVER seen in me whole
    life".
    Shamus looked out the side window and replied
    "Yeah Paddy, but look how fookin wide it is".
