Aer Lingus recently upgraded its business class cabins on its Chicago-Dublin route to provide fabled Irish hospitality to its premium customers. The airline offers daily nonstop flights between Dublin Airport (DUB) and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD). Ireland’s national carrier
Aer Lingus said that its customers booking business class flights to Chicago from its main hub Dublin deserve “high-margin premium cabin product” that is up-to-date. A spokesperson of Aer Lingus said that those purchasing business class tickets for travel on Chicago-Dublin route can now look forward to new lie-flat seats that extend to a generous 6 and 12 feet.
Media reports said that Aer Lingus has devised a clever marketing strategy and branded its business class product in an exquisite way by offering “four rooms in the sky”, which veritably are areas to unwind, eat, work and sleep. With its upgraded business class cabin the airline wants to provide a great flying experience to its privileged customers. Apart from the lie-flat beds, each seat in the business class cabin will also be equipped with tray tables that are large enough to accommodate both a laptop and a meal at the same time. The airline also makes it a point to serve meals on board the flights based on time of day on the ground in order to help the customers adjust to substantial time differences on long-haul international flights. The menus are also changed by the airline at least four times every year reflecting the seasonal ingredient availabilities in Ireland. Among other amenities offered on board the flights include amenity kits, pillows, duvets, eyeshades and socks.
Though Aer Lingus conducts daily flights services between Dublin and Chicago O’Hare, it also operates a second flight on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays during the peak summer season.
