I'm travelling between DUB and SNN onboard an EI A330 next week. After I've got off, the aircraft will continue to JFK or BOS (can't remember which).

What, if any, service is available on the hop between DUB and SNN? Is there a drinks service or are the catering trollies only brought out from the galleys after the stop at SNN?

And is there anyone on here who has travelled for that hop before that could tell me a bit more about it?

How does that work - does everyone have to get off the aeroplane at Shannon and preclear Immigration for the USA there?

Yes, everyone will get off at SNN and go through immigration.

The only service you get are the headphones in the seatpocket in front of you...

That's why Ryanair is always number-one in customer service.  Wink

Thanks for your responses.

Ah well! I'm taking three flights that day (LGW to DUB, DUB to SNN and SNN to LGW) and none of them will have free service. Ironic that the shortest flight was the most expensive of the three.

By the way, how reliable are the DUB to SNN EI hops? If it's not on time, I may miss my connection at SNN...

I'll have them then!

It's a 25-minute hop.

No service.

Usually on time, sometimes late - like most scheduled services.

This is surely a joke. "Ryanair customer service" is an oxymoron.

You should be fine, but if there is a problem with your flight, go straight to customer service and ask them to change your flight. EI133 and EI111 leave within 30mins of each other, so if you are on the 1st one and it goes tech, because you are only going to Shannon they should be able to change you without any hassle (but everything should go fine)

I have done this SNN-DUB a couple of times when I was still living in SNN, they once just put me on an earlier flight because I showed up early at check-in. At the time it always was a fixed fare of 29 EUR plus tax no matter when you booked and which flight, even the night before departure in the morning.

Hope so!

Anything interesting to look out for at DUB and SNN these days?
