Anyone out via Gatwick with Norweigian on the Wednesday? 

Got the Omena Lonnrotinkatu for €130 for 2 nights and it's very central. Pretty decent price.

Wings? They're only the band The Beatles could have been.

Think I might do the Gatwick to Helsinki route, is 90 minutes enough for connection at Gatwick?

Plan so far is Fly into Helsinki from Stansted on Wednesday night. Ferry to Tallinn and bus to Riga on Friday. Fly Saturday to Athens. Then hope it’s in Athens otherwise it’s a bus/train/boat to wherever it is in Greece.

If you have to change terminals then it probably wouldn’t be

Woukd probably disagree unless you need to go through passport control eg flying in from Helsinki and trying to make a Dublin flight 

Going from Dublin you shoukd be fine and if it’s the same terminal you just come up the small escalator, take a left and head up the big escalator for departures

Is it a connection though or 2 individual tickets ?

If its 2 do you not have to come out of arrivals and go back in again through departures and through security again, if thats the case 90 mins seems tight to me

You do indeed so I wouldn't be chancing it, and that's on a good day. 

When I was connecting there en route to Athens last year, the 1st flight from Dublin was held back from departure for about 30 minutes due to ATC restrictions at all the London airports. As it turned out, the restrictions were still in place when the Athens flight was due to depart so it was also late, but on another day they could have been ended with the 2nd flight going on time. The only reason I was happy to book that route was that there were 3 hours between the flights (both South Terminal).

Basically, I'd be looking for at least a 2-hour connection at LGW, add on an extra 30 minutes if changing terminals, just to be on the safe side.Thumbs Up

GTW - ATH 90 mins should be more than enough time to transfer unless you are hitting peak travel season and the security queues are bad but you cant really afford much of a delay on the inbound flight 

Terminal to terminal is 10 mins max , 5 min wait , 5 minute monorail journey 

ATH-GTW  GTW- DUB - is more problematic as you need to go through UK border as well security and I wouldnt risk that tight a connection at 90 mins 

Fast Pass is always an option  though if security queues are long everybody buys one 

Gtwick Security is generally on the ball , 5 mins max albeit on a thurs afternoon/evening

Grand stuff, it's from Shannon to Gatwick in the morning so I don't see that being delayed. I have two options anyway, this way or via Paris. But the first way gets me in earlier which would be ideal

I haven't been to an Ireland away game in a long time.

I'm thinking about going to this one and turning it into a bit of a weekend break/holiday while we're at it.

Would tickets be difficult to get?

Midweek game, Old Irish bar in Helsinki, same one we'd have been in when in Aarhus, €3.50 local beer all day and night midweek. Won't be as expensive a trip as you'd think.

But yeah if spending more than a 2/3 days it'll get expensive quickly
