To mark the launch of the airline’s new and improved Business Class Experience that is being rolled out across its Boeing 757 fleet, Aer Lingus is giving passengers an opportunity to ‘virtually’ experience the product through a Google Maps virtual tour.
The introduction of fully lie flat seats across Aer Lingus’ Boeing 757 aircraft provides Business Class guests with similar levels of comfort, storage and space to that available on the A330 fleet since last year.
The inaugural flight of the newly-fitted 757 was made back in February from Shannon to Boston and a total offour additional aircraft will be fitted with the new business class cabins by mid-May.
Online users can experience walking up to the plane, climbing the steps and walking through the aisle of the B757 Business Class Cabin.
As an added bonus, the new suite of virtual tours also features ‘The Revival Lounge’ at Dublin airport which offers Business Class guests arriving into Dublin from North America the opportunity to refresh before departing the airport. The lounge offers a range of facilities upon arrival including premium changing and shower facilities, steam pressing of shirts on request, Wi-Fi, refreshments and a waiting area with TV and newspapers.
Declan Kearney, Director of Communications, Aer Lingus said: “We’re delighted to extend our Business Class experience to our Boeing 757 fleet that will cross the Atlantic from both Dublin and Shannon. Using Google maps to create a virtual tour gives everyone a chance to really see inside an Aer Lingus Business Class cabin and get a taste of what it’s like to fly Business Class with Aer Lingus.”
