In your honest opinion, is it worth the step up to Business Class from Economy on an ORD-DUB RT? Getting close to buying some tickets and am weighing my options. It would be nice to fly premium to Europe for a change. By the way, is booze free in Economy??

You've not told the cruical information needed to help you....how much is Y, and how much is C. If there's a $300 difference, then yes, do it. If its $3000, then no. Of course, if money is no object, then definately book Biz, as it'll probably be more comfortable for you.

What kind of business class seats are there on Aer Lingus? I haven't flown biz on them for close to 10 years and the old recliner wouldn't deserve much more than Y in that recliner..that barely reclined. Did they upgrade that hard product?
The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

The Aer Lingus business class cabin is fitted with angled lie flat seats from Recaro which are very similar to what a number of other airlines feature, there's also only 24 seats which make it quite a cosy cabin experience.
The economy product isn't bad either, cabins are comfortable and there's the usual AVOD entertainment system you'd expect these days but the economy meals never look too appealing and theres a charge for alcohol which is probably why they've started offering an online meal upgrade service.
I'd definitely go for business class if you were really considering it, the product may not have all the bells and whistles that the premium carriers have but it's still a very nice way to cross the Atlantic.
