Delta 359 is stunning. Also they will be the first US carrier to give it's PAX that Delta service on the 359. Best plane and Airline in their relevant class/country.

Re: Aer Lingus @ BDL

JFK-BDL to get a 763 out of there was a lovely flight replacing the J-41. Many times there were so few of us that we all just sat in Biz. Flights up to BDL were very quick, coming down to JFK took longer because of the holds. Happy Days.
