Boarding process was not announced.
Lufthansa boarding is certainly easier and organized, staff is courteous always. But they can offer better food and definitely better selection of movies onboard. Also, all airlines offer two baggage’s for an international trip except Lufthansa. That needs to be reconsidered. Overall, a good trip. Thanks!
They could not check me in through to my final destination, even though it was through a partner airline. We departed the first flight 1.5 hours late, which gave me 45 minutes to run around the connecting airport trying to figure out where and how to get my next ticket. Very unpleasant experience and do not want to fly with Lufthansa again.
Be dubious if you cant choose your seats
It's my first time on Eurowings and it didn't meet the standards am used to from lufthansa.
The usual mediocre coach experience
I needed more seat room. Next time, preferred seating or business class.
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Cons: "It’s very very poor and flight radar is below average"
Cons: "Great experience."
Cons: "Very professional, helpful and friendly. Clean, great ride, smooth landing."
Pros: "International flights are always the best! You’re treated like you’re sitting in first class!"
Cons: "I packed a SOLID body butter that was brand new. I thought that because it was NOT a liquid but a SOLID it would be okay. Wrong! I took every precaution and even called prior to packing. I didn’t think this would be a problem. So, out it went! My SOLID deodorant was fine, though."
Pros: "All was fine on the flight."
Cons: "The woman at the "Groups" check in area on 4/20 Saturday morning had the personality of a cactus needle. She was condescending and sent us on a wild goose chase to pay for our bags. Why didn't she just send us to that area in the first place to take care of the check in process at the same place?"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attent ive"
Cons: "Delay cause sings uS to miSs oUr fliGh? ENT.ert.ainmrt wasn't good eitHer and way to cramped even for coach on that long of a fligh"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly staff"
Pros: "The staff is good"
Cons: "The service for a wheelchair is extremely bad"
Cons: "Airbus was warm. There were no personal vents on the plan. Made for a very long and warm/hot flight. Other than that. The flight was good."
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
Pros: "On time flight with no problems"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats so hard to sleep during flight"
Cons: "professionalist from the whole crew"
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Pros: "Everything is on tine"
Cons: "Food is very disappointing"
Cons: "Limited choice of types of meal - no vegetarian option."
Cons: "I didnt get my reserved seats, and the seats were not most comfortable compared toothed airlines."
Pros: "1. I like the plane and the comfort of my seat. 2. I was pleased to find my luggage in Athens as Lufthansa was the only airline that in the past twice had misplaced my luggage and had to wait for one day to get them. 3. The flight arrived at the scheduled time and going through the airport , security to my connection was especially easy. 4. The sandwiches also at the airport were tasty."
Cons: "1, It isn't really a 100% complaint because I'm also responsible. As I was waiting for the dinner to be served it took more time and I felt asleep watching a bad movie, so I missed dinner when I finally woke up. This is the reason I have no opinion about the food. My sole complaint is about the general practice in all airlines that they serve first the slim minority that does not eat meat. Democracy means that the majority should be served first. Unless the airlines consider the vegetarians as some kind of sick people! 2. The crew didn't offered us enough liquids during the flight and the excuse that they didn't wish to disturb our sleep is too lame."
Pros: "Departure was a bit late but we were informed. Even with that delay arrived on time. Coach seat was okay for me. Movies offered could be better but there was enough for my taste. It was a night flight anyway, so I was asleep most of the time."
Pros: "Hasn't happened. Still waiting."
Pros: "The service and food was excellent"
Cons: "The seats are too close together like most airlines but for a long flight this is very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The lady at the check-in at the Atlanta airport was extremely nice and extremely helpful"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I had ordered a child meal but it was not available. Also they did not have a child pack for my son."
Pros: "Everything except the entertainment"
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't work. It priduced some sound, so it might fool a tchnician doing a quick check. But voices and most of the sound track garbled and muted."
Cons: "They switched me to a different flight saying I won't make my connection due to high traffic at the BUD airport and they never told me that instead of arriving to JFK, they are flying to Newark airport. Having not known this at all, I had no ride home, super inconvenienced and I was 2 hours plus away from my home in Jersey. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Boarding and departure+arrival times were excellent. Baggage was handled well, arrived without damage. Much better marks here than AirFrance."
Cons: "Food was quite poor, much worse than KLM or Delta... no match for AirFrance,thoug I'd rather get poor food and arrive on time and without getting stranded at CDG. Also, Neither on-board wifi, nor the entertainment touchscreen worked, not at all. You'd be well advised to bring your own iPad... :-))"
Pros: "The first leg of our flight came in late, but the staff at the airport already had someone waiting for us by the gate to escort us to the connecting flight. And the staff was extremely organized and transported our luggage so that it made it to the final destination with us. All this happened in under 30 minutes. Great service"
Pros: "Food was better than American or Delta."
Cons: "Had a screaming baby during the whole flight. Not Lufthansa's fault though."
Pros: "Surprised by so many entertainment options!"
Pros: "If you can afford to fly business class, it is definitely worth the extra money. The flight, the crew, the comfort we're superb!"
Pros: "On time arrival and departure along with crew attitude and general high service level."
Pros: "Staff was very professional, the plain was new and clean. Food and drinks were also good."
Cons: "Excellent service"
Cons: "The food was not very good even for airplane food-- couldn't finish my chicken even though I was hungry!"
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Cons: "Small leg space"
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seats on plane. Stayed on time."
Pros: "flight was cancelled"
Cons: "flight was cancelled a few hours before with no explanation!"
Pros: "One crew refused to give food although there was"
Cons: "4 drunk passengers made flight unbearable"
Pros: "Aer lingus is the most comfortable way to travel"
Cons: "We ran a little behind; it would have been helpful for them to let us know they were running behind. Once you go through USA customs, there arent many options for refreshments or comfort. If I had known my flight would take off and hour and a half late, I would have been able to bide my time better."
Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."
Cons: "plane was so old, the seat was worn out and terribly uncomfortable sitting on it for 8 hours. It also had about a 2 inch gap of missing seat cushion. plane was very dirty. service was not friendly."
Pros: "Same comments"
Cons: "Same comments"
Pros: "Unable to check in online. Not from phone. Not on website. Called directly and waited forever. And told must do at airport. Arrived and was told flight booked and full so bumped from the flight. Paid $2000 for a coach ticket and not able to get on either flight from Boston - so missed all meeting."
Cons: "Join TSA you amateur / cut rate airline. Fix reservation system."
Pros: "Not crowded, lots of empty seats"
Cons: "Poor customer service. I think I said thank you many more times than the flight attendants who barely acknowledged me and seemed annoyed about performing any type of basic service (serving food/water/collecting rubbish/etc.)."
Pros: "Both ground crew and flight crew were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "The meal was between edible and mediocre. It would have been nice if the hot beverages were served with the mini breakfast before landing."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Service not friendly pillows are dirty no water service"
Cons: "No food or even water boarding on time but delayed for no reason"
Cons: "It was a short flight, but we had to walk literally a mile (I measured it with my fitbit) to get to the gate to board. Manchester security is frustrating...they follow different rules. Turns out you DO have to have your camera and ANY electronics (European converter, batteries, charging stations) placed outside your carry on. Only place that did it. And then they kept me in security for over an hour to have 3 different levels of security ask me the same questions over and over again. Don't know why they flagged me...maybe a false positive...as usual they won't tell you a damn thing. But the security guys weren't bad people..just been given their orders."
Cons: "not even free water."
Pros: "very friendly staff great flight with nice tech made trip fly by"
Pros: "Air Lingus is my new preferred carrier, thanks to you! They combine newest technology with traditional service values."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect flights. I went back to the crew and told them so. Compared to my BA flights eastbound, Air Lingus was heaven. I will always book them first from now on, and I just happened on to them through your site."
Pros: "There was more seat room in this plane."
Cons: "We deplaned on the tarmac and had to use steps to get to the ground."
Cons: "Delayed for 8 hrs. Had to go through passport control twice. Horrible service"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"
Pros: "We liked that they resolved our issues fast and they were very polite"
Cons: "We didn’t fly to Dublin because our fly was change to London , we had paid for our seats 150+ for 2 London was very stressful , at arriving we spend 45minutes to get into the terminal waiting for a bus The layover was 1:20 minutes so we arrived on time but all the waiting made us late to check in . After runing like chickens with no head a polite customer representative put us through and informed us that our fly was delayed becouse the plane had mechanical issues, so after all that we had to wait 1 hr at the airport and another 1 hr or so to make sure the plane was ready to leave , after that we made it to New York instead of 7 pm we arrived 10 pm , very tired"
Cons: "Food/ beverage service poor - luggage handling extremely bad. Delayed delivery at muc airport of one bag. Second bag did not arrive. Their luggage handler - global- extremely un/non professional. Absolute diaster: no offical tracing nr established, had tocontact air lingus myself.their phones seem not to work - the phone rings,then disconnects. Still no update on the present whereabout of the bag"
Pros: "Plane was clean."
Cons: "They seemed to be a bit stingy on the beverages - I was pretty dehydrated so asked for another can of soda or glass of still water and never received it. Crew was not particularly friendly. I had flown British Air on the way over to Europe and that crew seemed genuinely more friendly. The complimentary headphones were terrible. I almost gave up on watching a movie until I pulled out my iPhone headphones and realized that I could finally hear the dialogue over the roar of the plane."
Pros: "Better food than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London. More comfortable on Are Lingus than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London."
Pros: "Boarding was good....overhead room for carry-ons probably due to a less than full flight. The entertainment was varied, current movies, and wide selection of music. The crew was as efficient as possible and accommodating. However, we all have learned not to expect much."
Cons: "Comfort is lacking as is the case with jammed seating on all planes these days. It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, but since I resent it being done to me, I do not do it either out of respect for the passenger behind me."
Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."
Pros: "Time of connection"
Cons: "Was a bit dirty between sits"
Cons: "my ticket being canceled without me knowing"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Food was so so. Entertainment selection was so so. Entertainment technology was substandard."
Pros: "Good space between seats. Comfortable seating arrangement. Attentive and pleasant staff Smooth fly Good communication with passengers as required"
Cons: "Food was averge in taste. Wine was not included with the meal as does Iberia in trips to Rome Boarding took place on an overcrowded room with passangers of two flights standing all over the room due to lack of seating. Plane left late The entertainment system malfunction and had to be rebooted"
Pros: "Sat in exit row, so leg room was great. Entertainment: played 5 card draw with my wife."
Cons: "Aer Lingus' model is kind of no frills, so can't be upset about no movies, free drinks, etc."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was was great with friendly crew"
Cons: "The plugin for the movies wasn't great with the sound."
Cons: "See dislikes followig Dallas to Paris"
Cons: "First of all, they were not able to locate my reservations even after I showed them the e ticket. I had to be on call with Etihad for 1 hour to figure out my reservation. I had a small 7-year-old son with me and we were at the airport from one day. Since my other flight got cancelled I ended up boarding taking Etihad. I was first in the line at the check-in counter and ended up boarding at the end with all the hassle. I requested the vegetarian food twice and confirmed it while the reservation, but still didn't get the food. My son and myself were hungry for few hours. The crew was not very supportive to accommodate any food."
Pros: "Clean plane, great service, delicious food with a menu card to boot - nice touch - good entertainment: I highly recommend Aer Lingus!"
Cons: "The American pre-clearance in Dublin did not mind running me a half an hour late to be the last to board the plane with everyone waiting and ready to go, very stressful!"
Cons: "Flight was late departing and late arriving."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and welcoming. They directed us to the aisle for our seats. The staff at the airport were also very courteous and no question was too small to answer."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the person sitting behind me kept using his knees to make my ride uncomfortable because I reclined my seat too much. Instead of talking, he was rude in action. The stewardess did tell him that I had a right to recline when he motioned to her. I think the seats shouldn't be allowed to recline so much even though it is more comfortable for a long ride. The screen is very close to one's face when the passenger in front reclines all the way. The airport didn't have any compatible charging ports for iphones from the USA. But the plane had them. That's good. It would be good if mobile check-in boarding passes were acceptable."
Cons: "no entertainment or food on this short flight so can't assess."
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Cons: "Everything from start to finish incompetent."
Cons: "Late service, poor communication leading to events that left me angry and frustrated and left my friend in tears. I won't be flying British Airways ever again if humanly possible."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "I was told I had three aisle seats back to back. When we got to our seats, we were one seat in from the aisle. They changed my original flight which had a 1 and 1/2 hrs layover to a flight that had a 20 and 1/2 hour layover and refused to pay for a hotel or meals for my family."
Cons: "Other passengers didn't understand how pounding on the back of a seat affects the passenger in the seat"
Cons: "We had a terrible experience at the Aer Lingus desk in Paris. We got there two hours early for our flight and there was already a long line at the desk and no agents at the counter. Finally some agents arrived started checkng people in. After 15 min in line, they told us that if we were flying to the U.S., our flight was delayed and we would not make our connection, and to get out of line and wait. After 20 more minutes, they said that was a mistake and get back in line. I waited for approximately an hour and a half in line there, and had to run to my flight. There was no effort made to hurry us through security or any apologies."
Pros: "General clean: Sears, bathrooms, airport."
Cons: "Was not offered a complimentary drink."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "It was fast & got in early"
Cons: "My flights were switched at the last minute, it was very stressful, nobody was helpful, it was a terrible way to end my vacation"

Cons: "Not enough room for our hand luggage, but the crew did not help us."
Pros: "Aer lingus was good and helpful"
Cons: "I don't have my bag"
Pros: "My in flight entertainment screen did not work."
Cons: "on flight from London to Dublin my luggage got lost in Dublin terminal. The staff at the connecting flight counter went way out of their way to find it and escort me all the way through Irish customs to the on-site American customs and Immigration. Without their help I would have missed the flight from Dublin to Chicago."
