Our journey to Ireland began mid-morning 21Jun2014 in Seattle, and we arrived in Dublin, Ireland midday 22Jun2014. We flew Delta Airlines for the domestic portion (SEA to JFK) and KLM Dutch Airlines for the bit over the Atlantic Ocean (JFK to DUB). Delta kinda sucks, but KLM was lovely. I found JFK to be an unpleasant experience, tempered only slightly by the numerous drinking establishments available. It was loud, dirty and crowded. Also, the people who worked there were not terribly cheery and at times incompetent. Avoid the place if you can.
