DUB to JFK for US Passengers

Jump to last reply

I am writing a novel which involves, in addition to a great many other things, an American character, 16 and flying alone, who departs Ireland at DUB flying economy and arrives on a non-stop Aer Lingus flight at JFK. I'm using the current flight 109, departing DUB at 3:45pm and arriving at JFK at 6:20pm as my model.

What I'm looking for is someone who could walk me through what such a flight would entail in as much detail as possible from arriving at the Dublin airport (check in, pre-customs, gates), to the flight itself (meals / snacks, flight attendants, details of their Airbus 330) to departing JFK (either via taxi or Airtrain, I haven't committed to either one quite yet).

Two other important details: my working plot point is that this passenger has pre-cleared customs in Ireland (though I don't entirely know if this entirely takes the place of having to clear customs again on arrival in NY), and that this flight would arrive in Terminal 4 at JFK.

I have a long list of questions to ask, but I thought that instead of creating a monstrously long post here, I'd test the waters a little and see if there was anyone out there who has been on this route recently willing to walk me through the process. In return, I could offer either (a) my expertise as a professional web developer for anyone with questions about creating websites, or (b) a signed copy of my book when it is finished: I can pretty much guarantee it will be finished, though not that it will be published...so a signed manuscript might have to suffice. :)
