Flight to Dublin

Jump to last reply

I'm flying from IAD to Dublin. I am considering all of the options below. I have factored in price (in the discussion) and cost of checked luggage. Which flight would you recommend in terms of comfort and in flight service/entertainment? Also, in your opinion is a non-stop worth it? I don't typically mind layovers but if missed connections and luggage problems are common, it might not be worth the savings in this case.

Scandinavian with a 1hr 45min layover in CPH is my cheapest but longest option (with a total of 12 hours of travel time).

Then there is Virgin Atlantic to British Airways with 2hr 45min layover in LHR. Only very slightly more expensive but a little shorter than the SAS flight. I don't know how I feel about switching airlines. But I've heard good things about Virgin??

Also, I could fly non-stop on Aer Lingus. It is about $150 more expensive and I would have to leave a few days earlier than I would like to (my accommodation cost in Dublin will not go up). Is a non-stop flight worth it.

Potentially, if you all think non-stop is worth it, I could take Amtrak (with a free travel voucher) to either JFK or EWR. That would actually be cheaper than a layover from IAD. How is the transit from the Amtrak station to either airport?
