I have not yet booked anything, but am looking at a R/T flight on Aer Lingus from JFK to Paris, with a connection in Dublin. The flight TO Paris has a 1 hour and 15 minute connection time in Dublin, which a couple of posters have said should be fine. The return flight, however, has either a 1 hour and 15 minute connection time, or the next flight which has a 6 hour and 5 minute connection time. Any other flights go way up in price, or take (I don't have the info in front of me right now), I believe, 17 hours (ouch!!) from NYC to Paris
They have told me that on the way home I would need to pre-clear customs and immigration in Dublin and needed at least 3 hours. Does this mean that on the flght to Paris we don't go through customs/immigration until Paris?
Does it look like the 6 hour connection is my best option?
