This isn't the first time using Dublin, Aer Lingus and the US Pre-clearance, but it was the first I used the automated entry machines, easy to use but for some reason the CBP guy did the whole finger print thing again when I handed the recipe from the machine to him, the CBP seem to be doing this with everyone.... it seems a waste of time having the machines.
As for the flight the experience was ok, my only criticism was the seat, I found it very uncomfortable after a few hours, the base had no cushion worth speaking of on it, all the seats are the same in economy, it is like sitting on a park bench, I had a muscle on the back of my left leg hurting for a day or two after the flight. The food was ok, as was the service from the crew, I wasn't impressed with the entertainment but that is probably just me. If the seat base had been better the whole flight would have been close to 100% (if flying economy can ever be described that way)

As I only have hand luggage the plus side to flying from Dublin and the using the pre-clearance is that 5 minutes from leaving the plane you can be out of the terminal and on your way.
