Aer Lingus Has Made A Major Change To Its Transatlantic Flights

If you're flown on a transatlantic flight with Aer Lingus, you'll know that there are a lot of extras involved with your flight.

These can include everything from an extended baggage allowance to a cosy blanket to keep you snug during your journey.

However, many of us would rather travel without the frills if it meant a cheaper price and Aer Lingus has announced today that it is making some major changes to accommodate this.

According to The Irish Independent, the airline is about to split its fares into two options - Smart and Saver, depending on your priorities.

The Smart fares will remain the same as customers are used to and include additions like extra baggage allowance, while the Saver fares are being touted as "the lowest possible Aer Lingus fares across the Atlantic".

They will start from €169 each way and include one piece of 10kg cabin baggage, in-flight entertainment and on-board meals.

Everything else - like headphones and blankets - will cost between €5 and €50.

What do you think of the new changes?
