The entire schedule has moved up 10-20 minutes over the last year or two

Bigger element is probably the increasing number of transfers via TATL which get in before 5am

A queue of 10-20 people was not uncommon at 0515 so that is now gone, straight in now hassle

Flying DUB-JFK soon in J. In the past I have been able to use 51&Green but I received a lounge pass email for EI's own lounge shortly after booking (which I would have access to anyway with AerClub). Has the policy whereby pax in J use 51st&Green and not the EI lounge changed recently?

If you are platinum or better you can use either, if Silver must use EI. As you have both status and are in J you have options

By default all passengers to the US will be directed to 51st and Green

Its your choice, but being on the far side of CBP and in lounge is preferable to being in lounge and having to go through CBP

Thanks. I absolutely agree. Just wanted to avoid arriving at 51st&Green and being told I was meant to use the EI lounge.

When flying to BOS in J and connecting with JetBlue (one ticket booked via EI), can I access the lounge during the layover by presenting the DUB-BOS leg boarding pass?

Nope no lounge access onward at BOS


Only if flying via ORD with United onward do you get access (ORD on the way out and at the point of departure on return, e.g. SEA)

Business class and silver do not give guesting privileges. Unfortunately being double-qualified oneself does not allow a guest entry.

Can anyone confirm that the AGP (Malaga) information listed in the main FAQ is still accurate? I could not find anything about AGP on the Aer Lingus website (or a search here).

I see a response from the EI twitter account from June this year advising lounge access no longer available in AGP.

Best place to get up to date list of lounges would be here:

The United Codeshare lounge access if traveling business via ORD has been withdrawn

So no access in Seattle if flying to Dublin via ORD in Business

Aer Lingus website very clear access is there but lounge staff in Seattle very clear that the access has been discontinued
