EI only has one 330-200 that has seat back video and it usually does either LAX or BOS. Exits are 12 and 31 on the 330-300 which is the most likely aircraft.

I would avoid the exit row window seats on the EI A333 due to the size of the emergency slide which severely restricts leg room. I noticed other passengers having to stretch their legs round this box and it looked rather uncomfortable. Legroom is a tolerable 32" pitch on all rows, seats in the normal A330 2-4-2 config.

I flew JFK-DUB on 23 Dec in the forward economy cabin. It was significantly quieter than the rear cabin when i flew DUB-BOS. Perfect for concentrating on that good book! IFE was on the mainscreen, dropdown CRT monitors from the central overheads rather than above the aisle. There was a main movie (should be 2 movies on the ORD route) as well as a few shorter 20-30min sit-com programs. Its nothing to write home about but its a welcome distraction.

Weeksy am I correct that EI between Dublin and New York serve only 1 meal? We are going to NYC on EI next week.
Thank you.

Semsem, yes thats correct. At least flying JFK-DUB just a mainmeal was served. Non-Alchoholic drinks were available to help yourself to in the galleys for the rest of the flight but no food/snacks. The flight time was only slighty more than 5.5 hours though. The westbound leg takes longer - if i remember correctly a small snack is served but only consists of a muffin or cookies.
