I can't see why not, you can normally add it as part of your booking. Not sure if it is worth it though as you will still have to so through CBP and wait at the gate. Just just my opinion anyway, I don't think the EI lounge in Dublin is very impressive. It's a quiet space but the food offering is not great.

Yeah anyone can pay into the lounge. Like Dublinflyer said, the food offering isn't impressive though. Basic cheese, crackers, some soup.

51st and green is a bit more expensive but probably worth paying the difference as you can relax more not worrying if you've left enough time for pre-clearance and the coffee/food is better. Though as a silver member, you'd have to pay in as well. I think it's covered under platinum.

Like the one in LHR so, pretty lame. Also Aspire in Schiphol is poor, i Upgraded to Privium Full last week as the lounge there is really good, i had basic as its essential to zip through the airport.

EI Lounge

The Baristta is there in the morning and again in the afternoon at busy periods. If there is a positive reaction they will be there full time once the refit is complete later this year.

Oh nice.

The DAA lounge in T1 has a barista from time to time as does 51st and green. Nice to see EI lounge having it too. Even when the coffee machines were working, the coffee they produced was often muck.

What happened to the fruit salad in the mornings in EI lounge Dublin. For the last few trips it's not there. I am only ever there at 6.30am
Last week on holiday trip I upgraded on Turkish airways and got daa lounge in T1. Was 3pm couldn't believe the difference was luxury in comparison to EI.

Started the booking process for my 2 "free" flights.

I knew that Taxes/Charges were not included. Requested 2 return flights to Malaga with Aer Lingus - online they were €114.98 return each.
Aer Credit Card have come back to me and confirmed that my free flights will be €91.18 each, a saving of just over €20 on each flight. A long long way from free, but that's the deal.

Hardly worth it in many respects, especially if you are Silver already. And tried ringing the reservation number to complete the bookings (can't do online) and spent half hour twice on hold before giving up.

I'm flying from SFO to DUB. I know I can access a United Club lounge. Does anyone know where exactly this is in relation to the Aer Lingus departure gate? Is it the same lounge if in business class vs aerclub lounge?
Thanks in advance
