BHX-Dublin-Orlando-Dublin-BHX. Very impressed with quick check-in at BHX, short flight to Dublin left on time and arrived early. Pleasant airport to hang around in while waiting for connection. Again, very impressed with flight to Orlando, food quality and quantity was very good as was the seat-back inflight entertainment - our 2 children were kept very happy! Arrived 40 minutes early even after re-route to avoid a storm. Return journey the same, food not quite as good, but still very acceptable, and all flights on-time. I was able to sleep on the overnight flight, and I've never done that before. The cabin crew on all 4 flights were very friendly and helpful. Only downside, our cases weren't transferred at Dublin and followed on the next flight and delivered to our home the next day - according to staff at BHX this happens regularly with transfers. Not impressed with airport security at Dublin - wife bought a bottle of water at Orlando departure lounge and a very rude and self-important security woman grabbed it out of her hand and threw it in a bin when we arrived -I would have drunk it given the chance. But then within 10 feet of security you can buy another over-priced bottle - what's that all about? She missed the 2 cups of airline water in our hand luggage though!
