The stewardesses were a bit intense, no entertainment systems, no complementary drinks
It was one of the best experience ever
Toke forever to clear security at DUB airport, the flight was comfortable but no food served.
First time with Aer lingus, excellent job. Recommended ;)
Pros: "crew was super nice"
Cons: "major delay, no info, boarding process felt like a cluster"
Pros: "Everything about this booking was a disaster. Not the least of which is that my bags are still on London and are total travel time will end up being about 24 hours returning."
Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Pros: "Rapid boarding with no delays"
Cons: "No snacks, no entertainment."
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Food was hot"
Cons: "Seat were slightly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Could do with some entertainment ie. a film"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence which the crew could not do much about. Apart from that a good experience"
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: "The crew are the friendliest, nicest crew. I’ve flown Iberia and JetBlue the past year and the Aer Lingus crew are so much more hospitable and service oriented. From cockpit announcements keeping passengers up to date on flight info, to food service, the crew does an excellent job."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was too chaotic. There seemed to be a lot of confusion. They were boarding rows 8-23 but no one was getting through the gate to the plane. Before anyone from this group got on the plane, they added rows 24-46. Ambiguity causes stress. A more orderly lining up of passengers would be less stressful."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We had to spend $1000 on tickets because Kayak DID NOT book us on the flight we had a confirmation for"
Pros: "They had vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "I couldn't check in until I got to the airport so I was stuck in a middle seat. Boarding went smoothly but we sat on the run way for an extended period of time. The screens weren't working for the first 45 mintues and when they were finally reset the movies kept skipping which made it unwatchable, the 7 hour flight from hell."
Pros: "Didn’t feel cramped like on the Air Transat flight to Dublin. The food was quite good and they had a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Crew were efficient and courteous. Food was tasty."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken and leaned back too far. Audio plug wouldn’t accept two prong headset. Video screen was nonfunctional on flight to Dublin."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. The staff was extremely friendly. The games on the video screen weren't bad."
Cons: "There was a technical problem with the plane at our gate when we landed, so we were on the tarmac for an hour waiting for a gate to open. Video choices were limited, and Internet was extremely overpriced."
Cons: "Seemed like when we landed the crew didn’t seem to know how to assist such a large crowd. When we did ask if we were in the right boarding area attendant was rude. Seemed like we were a bother."
Pros: "Boarding was very quick"
Cons: "Non-alcoholic drinks should be free on the flight."
Pros: "Overall flight was fine."
Cons: "Sports equipment charge descriptions are vague, and not well understood by staff. They charged me for two additional bags Skis, and boot bag, one directions and for one bag on the return trip. A total of $300 extra total! I would either rented equipment, optimized packing, or selected another airline. In the end not a good airline to accommodate sports equipment. Be careful. Chicken dishes were bad."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely... what was wrong with this plane was not their fault and they did their best."
Cons: "Not only was my seat cushion lumpy and extraordinarily uncomfortable, the seat back was broken. My video monitor was as well... Possibly the worst overseas flight I've ever taken...10 hours of pure torture. Never again."
Cons: "BA used to feel like luxury travel. Now they just feel like any run-of-the-mill budget airline. Felt nickeled & dimed from start to finish. Staring with being asked to pay $39 if I wanted to preselect my seat. My friend and I chose the free option of selecting our seats 24 hours before the flight--her luggage didnt even make in on the plane! It was finally delivered at 2:00 AM the next morning; well past the 8:00 PM promised delivery, which caused us to lose an entire eveing in Paris. On the return flight, home, she was told there wasn't even a seat for her on the plane. I failed to add that after booking and paying for her flight, they cancelled and deleted the SFO to London leg of the flight without so much as notifying her via email, phone, or text. Mind you, the London to Paris leg was not cancelled. Had we not tried to pre-book our seats, she would never have known they had cancelled her flight. What impacted her, impacted me, so needless to say, neither of us will ever fly BA again! BTW, their online customer service representatives were very nasty to deal with."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Terminals were too far apart. Long walk to get to security. Too many repetitive checkpoints."
Pros: "Food, crew"
Cons: "No wine for economy class on a nine hour flight?"
Pros: "Prompt Rebooking. The new schedule was better the original schedule with fewer connections."
Cons: "My original flights from Dublin to London and London to Munich were cancelled. The booking agency Webjet did not inform me about the cancellation. I noticed changes to my schedule three days before the flight and requested a rebooking. The entire leg to Munich was rebooked by Webjet but again I had to call and ask for an update since they don't issue a second round of confirmation emails."
Pros: "Excellent service and courteous staff"
Cons: "I didn't like they charge for all drinks including water on a 2hour flight"
Cons: "When sitting in an exit row an attempt should be made by staff to reserve overhead storage for those in the exit row because of the no storage under your seat policy, after all you had a staff member right there!"
Pros: "Not much paid for prority boarding but we were bussed to the flight in Faro and this made prority boarding nul and voidboarding"
Pros: "Overall good flight. Everyone was nice. Flight attendants were attentive. Plane was nice, clean, comfortable."
Cons: "I had to pay for my wine. Usually my drinks have been free on trans Atlantic flights. Also movies were very limited, not a great selection."
Pros: "Entertaining TV options"
Cons: "Did not have enough GF food options. So I went without a meal."
Pros: "Their best was merely adequate."
Cons: "Unlike modern airlines Aer Lingus does NOT let you check in ahead of time. You have to WAIT in line forever with people checking luggage. Also, my flight was an hour late. No reason or apology given. It nearly made me miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew, speed, ease of security at Cork"
Cons: "The lady in 1C who turned her phone on as soon as we hit the British coast"
Pros: "We had an adequate amount of room and were treated as valued customers. Enough said!"
Pros: "Much better than the Rome-Dublin leg. A modern plane with entertainment. A boarding process with effective signage and flowing lines. An absolutely top-rate cabin crew. Actually enjoyable food."
Cons: "Really was well done: systems seem to be functioning smoothly and feedback processes are working. One thing I did note was that the waste seemed to be collected without sorting for recycling. Considering you all are on the Emerald (green) Isle, you could take up the mantle of being the "most ecological" airline in the world. It would only take a small amount of messaging."
Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are too close together!"
Cons: "You can't get a seat assignment until you check in at the airport. I ended up in the very back row, right in front of the galley for a 7 hour flight. No sleep for me."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and so accommodating"
Cons: "Not the flight/airline fault, but the getting through us preclearance was a nightmare"
Pros: "Good movie selection, not bad food,"
Cons: "Flight arrival time, not a fan of the red-eye."
Cons: "You lost my luggage with my dead mother's paintings."
Pros: "The personnel involved with wheelchair services who took us to our gate was very helpful and engaging. We thank them for this service. The gate personnel and flight attendants were helpful to get us on the flight earlier that was helpful with my husband" visual disability."
Pros: "Service was great, everyone was really helpful"
Pros: "Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat by door very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Did not get the correct meal on the connection flight Entertainment system and selection outdated"
Pros: "Air Lingus is my favorite airline, never had a bad flight with them."
Cons: "Bit dissapointed when the meal was served. choices were chicken or beef asked for chicken non left so had to settle for the beef."
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "No social distancing enforced, I was sat next to another person (no spaces between booked seats)"
Cons: "Missed our connection because of problem w jetway"
Pros: "Nothing British airways was fine"
Cons: "Your website messed up and booked my flight for the wrong month. I booked sept 20 2019 and your site errored out. Eventually it booked the flight but apparently it was for oct 20, 2019 and I couldn’t get a refund because it was through kayak not British airways. I’m never using kayak ever again"
Pros: "Flight space was quite empty in my section so that was AMAZING. Crew was lovely and helped with a few requests for myself and travel companions. Very good selection on tv and movies and the refurbished aircraft was very comfortable for me on this flight. Probably helps having seat to self."
Cons: "Nothing on this occasion"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "It took 3 people to check my bag something was wrong with the system ... the airplane was super hot for first half hour or so because there was a problem with air conditioner."
Pros: "The crew were what you would expect - friendly & efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat Entertainment screen inadequate - flickered and touch control worked around 30% of time Entertainment choices were tired and outdated"
Cons: "More staff needed at security clearance"
Pros: "Staff were very kind and helpful"
Cons: "The two meals we received were not quite enough to see us through a 9 hour flight"
Pros: "The BA staff on the plane were excellent, given the horrible way we arrived to board the plane. They went above and beyond to help mitigate the treatment before boarding the plane. Also, our vegan that we requested via American Airlines on the phone back in September didn't appear on their list, so they made the best out of a bad situation."
Cons: "Our first BA flight was late leaving and therefore we arrived to our 2nd flight 20 minutes before the flight was to leave. The check-in staff were completely rude, telling us to run and threatening to not let us on the plane. It was not our fault the plane left late from BCN to LHR. Once we were actually let on the plane, we didn't push back from the gate until 5-10 minutes after the scheduled departure time. There was absolutely no reason to have treated us that way, so we promptly submitted a complaint to British Airways."
Pros: "All of it we left and landed ahead of time"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Couldnt pick seat after checkin. They put me in the middle in the back row even though there were better seats left empty right next to me. baggage would have cost 100 pounds to check. Flight was not exactly cheap at 200 pounds. Will just fly the budget airline next time over british air since. I expect better accomodation for these prices."
Pros: "Arrived safely at destination."
Cons: "Even coffee cost money? Had to request water. Just cattle moving through."
Cons: "I was not able to sleep given the small business class seats."
Pros: "Nothing to like about it. We were flying into JFK on Delta and our flight was delayed because of a navigational issue which in turn meant that we were going to miss our British Airways connection. When we attempted to contact kayak to see about moving us to another flight nobody bothered to help us we lost our entire round-trip flight on British Airways and we lost $1,000."
Cons: "The fact that nobody is willing to take ownership of trying to help a passenger when they are need in a situation that they had no control over. Also please see above for additional what I didn't like"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and on time, plane was clean and warm."
Cons: "Did not think this was any better than the budget airlines, I expected more from British Airways, no entertainment on board - food limited, some gifts ran out."
Pros: "Lots of video entertainment options and economy plus was very comfortable."
Cons: "A380 takes a long time to load everyone onto plane and get everyone off the plane as well."
Pros: "Easy flight sequence to get from Seattle to BCN"
Cons: "Could use better entertainment selection"
Pros: "I always fly AA but this time was a nightmare"
Cons: "The gate agents put me on a wild goose chase as they made an error on the time of my flight departing. My wife and I were sent to three gates and finally was apologized to by the manager on duty. Our flights were changed for free put we lost 5 hours of travel. My wife started IVF treatment today... and she was uanbale to sleep before her 7am appt ( got home at 3am) Very stressful!!!"
Pros: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Cons: "Mixed up boarding arrangements, length of time to disembark, being coached to the terminal. ok these add up as stress for business travelers on a deadline for meetings"
Pros: "I love it the most that they are so helpful with excess baggage Which is why I always book with BA I am an entertainer working for many different cruise lines BA does not rob you blind if you have extra baggage Or your bags are slightly heavier ! Delta recently charged me $ 285 per extra bag Coming back BA charged me $90 and allowed me two bags The new policy on many airlines to literally rob a customer Is disgusting and the govt authorities should put a stop To it BA is welcoming and always professional !"
Cons: "Airline food is often risky to eat and The variety is poor especially if you are vegan"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "That the British Airways trip was over."
Cons: "Undue delay, but most especially that the airline's services portrays a belief that passengers travelling round-trip to Africa do not deserve the same service as those travelling between Europe and the U.S., especially for the fare being charged for the shorter distance."
Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded well"
Cons: "This was a codeshare with Iberia and the seats were incredibly close with barely room to fit a small person, much less the 6’+ person who was next to me and had to put his legs over onto my side. Had a hard time getting my bag down between the seats to put under the seat in front of me. And everything was a cost, even water. Note to self, carry water or a drink on the plane if you think you will want one."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Pros: "The crew; very accommodating and polite."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Not able to walk about the plane becuase of configuration"
Pros: "Everything. Thank you and keep up the great work"
Cons: "My seat was broken."
Pros: "I always try to fly British Airways whenever possible."
Pros: "Pleasant and efficient"
Cons: "Flight delay - but that is not always under airline control."
Pros: "did not get notification about early flight departure, I do not expect great airline food but the food was TERRIBLE ! Staff was not informative about much nor did they serve with a 'smile""
Cons: "see other note"
Pros: "The flight boarded and left on time. The seat was comfortable with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was a bit cold part of the time."
Pros: "The flight was good , seat very comfortable ,servie good"
Pros: "Actual room in coach"
Cons: "Corination chicken"
Cons: "My baggage was lost. This is ridiculous."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."
Pros: "I like that I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "That plane was filthy, the food was horrible, my luggage was lost and searched and gifts were ripped open. And at both airports Gatwk.UK and Ft L. Florida British Airlines had the worst most disorganized "Pop Up " type system. I hope I never fly the airline again. It's a lot of money to spend for such an antiquated system."
Cons: "Seating in Business Class is not satisfactory. Compared to Virgin, American and Delta, it is sadly lacking. No shelf to put water, book, etc. lighting not good and footrests aren't easily worked."
Pros: "Seats were a lil comfortable than the ones i have flown in before."
Cons: "Switched to a different plane because of delays. Was issued a ticket without getting an alert that i required a visa for italy, was detained and had to spend a night in an italian airport cell and deported the following day (not a honeymoon experience i was looking forward to)."
Cons: "We were told not to worry when there was no plane at the gate when we arrived. Then we were told not to worry that the plane was being towed to the gate when it did land in Schipol. They were aware that many on the plane were trying to make a fairly quick connection in London. And it was after that connection would have already been missed that they let us know that our flight was canceled and we would have to go back to get our luggage and get re-assigned to another plane. We stood for TWO HOURS to be reassigned with only 2 agents helping a whole plane full of people. Of course, we missed the last flight out that could have connected us. We were told to go to an agent when we got to London to get a hotel room and they would have us all sorted. They did not have us all sorted and that took another half hour. We were at the airport in Schipol for SEVEN hours [and two trips through passport control] before our rescheduled flight to London boarded. When we landed in London, we had to go to the arrivals desk for them to be informed that we needed a hotel. We were able to sleep about 3 hours and had to get back to the airport for an early morning flight. Everyone we dealt with was kind and respectful, but the Airline itself was ill-prepared to handle this cancellation. In addition, they said they would not re-book at the gate, but those who were angry and aggressive were able to do so and get out on the day we were supposed to. Pretty crummy end to a trip."
Pros: "Nothing in specific. But good service and people."
Cons: "The kids crying"
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Late departure and inefficient gate service. Seats very uncomfortable. Food was inedible. Otherwise, had a great time."
