Planes, Trains, No Automobiles - Get to Macy's in Minutes with United - Worldchoice, Bookabed and United Airlines Fam to New York City.

 

The Worldchoice, Bookabed and United Airlines Fam to New York City jetted into Newark last weekend. Mary King (Worldchoice), Lee Osborne (BookaBed) and Aoife Gregg (United Airlines) invited Shane Cullen (Travelbiz.ie) and 7 members of the Irish travel trade for a long weekend in the Big Apple.

 

The group took the 9a.m. United Airlines flight from T2 at Dublin Airport direct to Newark, beating the morning traffic as well as the pre-clearance morning rush. Economy Plus seating provided ample legroom even for Shane at 6'2". This flight lands just after noon (12:45) and Newark Airport has a train line direct into NYC costing $13 one-way, taking just 30 mins and leaving you just outside Macy's at Penn Station. Perfect for some retail therapy.

 

United Airlines is adding a 787 10 Series Dreamliner on the Dublin to Newark route to commence 23rd May 2019. As a fan of the Dreamliner (fresh air pumped into the spacious, much quieter cabin; larger, dimmable windows; less turbulence or in other words, feeling a whole lot better getting off the flight and a lesser sense of jet lag), it's great to see the airline invest in the Irish market. In addition, according to Aoife Gregg, this route will offer 21 Premium Plus seats, the only airline providing this on the route.
