Ei0583 agp - dub a330

Just realised Aerlingus are using one of their A330 on my Malaga to Dublin flight this Friday 11th May. I'm going to upgrade to business just to experience the seat but will there be a business class service?

I'm pretty certain it is just the seat, service nominally the same as the rest of the aircraft. Obviously also being at the front of the aircraft and having access to a likely less busy toilet at the front of the plane are coincidental benefits of being seated in the front cabin.

Do your homework on seat selection - Not all seats are created equally!

Just wondering if there is still residual impact from the diversion into ORD & YYZ last weekend?

I appreciate everyone's opinion is individual what's your opinion on the 5K 'throne seats'?

No impact from last week, all back to normal

5K and 3K are the best seats, huge amount of space. Really enjoyable almost first class in terms of size

No business class service other than you can use the entertainment system, which actually economy passengers can do as well so it's not really a business class perk. So it's all about the sea and the space. 3K and 5K the best seats alright

I have done this a few times over the years. The A330 gets put on AGP and FAO in Summertime. It is certainly worth the fee IMHO. BOB catering and no other perks other then the seat as suggested above.

WiFi on AGP A330

No WiFi cards are loaded for shorthaul flights on the A330. AFAIK, the complimentary WiFi for concierge level is only available for long haul services.

When wifi first came out onboard and they were trialling it those in J Cabin on the AGP route were given a card but when that finished they stopped.

Yeah this is correct unfortunately, I asked and they said they didn't carry any of the wifi cards on the AGP flights, only transatlantic ones.
