And the most famous Donald on Earth is certainly celebrating today because duck isn’t on the menu.. Happy Quacksgiving Day everyone.
We all know about the Other Donald, the one with the tuft and the big mouth who doesn’t make any sense.
I’m more interested in My Donald though – Donald Duck – and of course we go way back to when we had a quacking time out in Disney World in Orlando.
And if my luck holds out then I’ll be dancing with the duck next year at the American Travel Fair, IPW, next year.
But many of us can’t wait until then and have been working with Visit USA to get out there before then.
So, it’s just as well then that our old friends, Ireland’s national airline carrier are there to help us.
Aer we go to Orlando
From this Saturday customers will be able to travel directly to Florida, following the lifting of travel restrictions to the US earlier this month.
From this weekend, Dublin to Orlando will operate three flights per week to connect families, friends, and business in the run up to the holiday period.
This weekly schedule of direct flights to Orlando will fly on Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday with fares starting from €169 each way, including taxes and charges.
Those looking to visit the Sunshine State can avail of the great Black Flyday offers on flights to the US with Aer Lingus.

That includes €100 off return flights to North America and €200 off return business class tickets.
They’ll be valid for travel from 1st January to 31st May 2022. And remember there’s pre-clearance.
Now if you want the best advice on how Aer Lingus flies then it helps to have access to the people who fly us.
And fortunately I am and they gave us the rundown on how they, and us, travel these days.
And their super-duper VeriFLY travel pass app.
Most importantly… Aer Lingus customers cannot check-in online ahead of flights to/from the USA unless they use VeriFLY.
The app allows users to upload and ensure that their travel documentation is checked and approved before travelling to the airport.
This will allow customers to get their online boarding pass and go straight to bag drop/boarding gate, and avoid queuing at check-in.
