Lounge in Heathrow is great. Staff aim to please and very courteous. The upper class seat is very narrow with no storage area. Strange seating position, no options to recline the seat while sitting up. Who thought that this was a good idea? IFE minimal. On borard Lavs shared with premium economy class.
Pros: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
Pros: "Amazing crew, excellent drinks and decent food. Very comfortable seat"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "The seats reclined at a good pitch and were very comfortable. The crew were friendly and service was good."
Cons: "I understand that on the night flight, they were trying to keep the lights up for dinner service, but it prevented my toddler from being able to sleep and thus made for a difficult rest of the journey."
Pros: "Excellent airline"
Cons: "The business seats could have been wider. I have sat on business class other airlines and the seat was a bit wider but overall still great experience"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats were ok."
Cons: "Not a lot to Improve on to Be fair"
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost."
Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Bad entertainment system"
Pros: "Limited numbers in the top deck, silence, service and deplaning first."
Cons: "Food has to much of an asian slant."
Pros: "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."
Cons: "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."
Pros: "They didn't serve any refreshments or even water"
Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."
Cons: "LAX AIRPORT signage leaves something to be desired. Nothing to do with airline."
Pros: "The flight felt so short, service was amazing, food was good. Great overall experience."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, and ruined my trip, Customer service doesn't pick up the phone"
Pros: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Pros: "I thought the airline amenities were excellent and it was a seamless process getting on the flight. The flight attendants were very warm and accommodating. I felt immediately welcome as soon as I got on the flight. I liked that they were playful with my son and engaged him."
Cons: "Nothing. We did leave a piece of luggage on the plane so hoping that things turn out okay."
Pros: "Cabin crew were accommodating and nice throughout the flight. Meals were good and the service was quick. Large range of entertainment selection for the trip helped pass the time."
Cons: "The check in process and boarding process were very slow. It made going through security a bit stressful and I didn't have much time after going through the security to use the bathrooms or get a quick bite to eat before the plane boarded."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Cons: "No indication of where to go to get to connecting flight. Luckily we had 2 1/2 hours to find the flight."
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."

Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Cons: "Very small leg room"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "This is my new favorite airline. I loved the staff and all the amenities. I was so comfortable and the food choices were great. I felt like I was cared for and my comfort mattered."
Pros: "I've had knee surgery and the flight attendants were very accommodating as to "make" and ice pack for me. The recline of the seats was impecible. The food was great. Overall, great flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did a great job."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight."
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."
Pros: "The crew where very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The ticket agent was anal about 1-2 kgs for our checked luggage and even weighed our carry on luggage...which no agent had done on our entire trip from atlanta to melb. Seemed pointless and a hassle for 1-2 kgs."
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "Genuinely pleasant cabin crew, good service, good food."
Cons: "Virgin Upper Class seats are cramped, with very limited stowage space. Turning the seat into a lay flat bed (and returning it seat at the end of the flight) takes some effort--not the simplest of processes. I'm not tall, but my feet protruded into the aisle so I was being disturbed whilst sleeping. Seat is also quite narrow--feels quite claustrophobic when sleeping."
Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"
Pros: "great food and service!"
Cons: "It got a little cold in the cabin for a few hours."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Open area for self-serve snacks and non-alcoholic drinks Food was very good Super friendly attendants"
Pros: "Smiling and helpful staff Great FREE food and drinks good movies Free goodie bag of travel goods, blanket, pillow etc Free candy for landing descent"
Cons: "Leg room is a little tight"
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Cons: "Cold draft at all times."
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "The most miserable 10 hours of my year, so far. Sat in economy. Small seats. Uncomfortable seats. Design of headrest made comfort an impossibility."
Pros: "At JFK the lounge and service was the best I have encountered."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Food, service, attendant, on-time etc,"
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Kayak offered terrible service, and was unwilling to come up with better alternatives to fix their mistake. Don't choose KAYAK, if the airline cancels the flight, KAYAK only makes effort to avoid any accountability.
Pros: "First time on SAS in many years. Service was lower than average. Will fly with other carriers on my next Euro trip."
Cons: "Flight left Boston 1.5 hours late. I barely made my connecting flight but my checked bag did not. SAS outsources to GBS to handle missing bags. They promised 24 hours to deiiver to my hotel, but took 3 days. No one answers their phone. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Made it"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Checked bags left behind, no food, no drink."
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "One more pass at the end of flight to pick up more trash, to create less work for cleaning crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "SAS generally has better planes and more space than most airlines especially in economy class. Seats were comfortable, not too tight. Food was good. Most SAS planes are really nice and new. On this flight they had a problem and had to use one of their older planes. It was still pretty nice, but the entertainment system on the older plane was a little dated."
Cons: "Used backup plane. It had an older entertainment system."
Pros: "Excellent leg room in first seat near emergency exit door"
Cons: "Seat was close to toilets so a lot of traffic"
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "Crew was great, seats in economy plus were comfortable. Arrival was 15 minutes early to Los Angeles."
Cons: "Check in took a long time at Stockholm. Waiting area to board was very small and crowded."
Pros: "We mentioned it was our anniversary and thought about moving up to SAS Plus, but the cost was not an option to us. She moved us up before we got on the plane! Extremely nice!!"
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged. Because we did not notice this until we got to our apartment we found that it is not possible to make acclaim, rather you just have to make a general complaint with a response according to SAS likely in 3 weeks. This process took over an hour of my time. The three tel numbers given to report damage are in Scandinavia and not much use when travelling within the UK."
Pros: "Pleasant and safe flught"
Cons: "Poor customer service. No notification via text or email that there was a 5 hour delay, and no immediate rerouting for connecting flights. a 15 hour trip turned into 24+. Worst SAS experience ever."
Pros: "on time polite staff comfortable flights with free coffee"
Cons: "charging for bags"
Cons: "website made it impossible to pay for baggage ahead pf time...so therefore they could and did rob us blind once we got to the airport the day of"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Alot of room for legs, good hp service"
Cons: "No snack with beverage before dinner, no choice of food , On connecting flight Kopenhagen-Krakow only Coffee/tea, no snack again, for passenger going over see very poor !!!!"
Cons: "Tried to call sas , no phone answered after 730 in Copenhagen, forced to buy my own ticket to leave early am as their incompetent sas transfer desk couldn’t find me a flight in am yet I was able on kayak.com. They refused to pay for it."
Pros: "Flight was unremarkable in every good way. Food was above expectations and the crew was exceptional."
Cons: "Not enough characters to express my disappointment."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to a bomb alert. No food or hotel compensation. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "Cheap, more than basic, and comfortable. No major complains."
Cons: "The o my thing that could be improved is a lrger selection of movies, and better food. Food is acerage compared to everything else."
Pros: "Great takeoff and landing.Care ethics of the stuff was excellent. The quality of the food was very good and it was served with care."
Pros: "Seat room good. Food very good. Flight attendants excellent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind at this time."
Cons: "Cattle call boarding in a culture where standing in que is unheard of."
Pros: "Awesome seat with great leg room for a tall person. The whole flight went quickly and enjoyed the crew and flight"
Cons: "Water and beer paying"
Cons: "Missed connection was re-routed by United directly to FRA"
Pros: "The staff and pilot kept us informed of what was happening with our delay. The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour late."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff in airport and on board. Really like the new planes, too. Food served on long haul international legs even on SAS Go which was great."
Cons: "Boarding a bit confusing on a couple legs, didn't really announce boarding group etc, but otherwise was fine."
Pros: "Best food on an airplane I have ever had. Great service from the cabin crew."
Cons: "Cabin extremely dated. Lie flat seats not flat. No built in entertainment but rather iPads handed out by cabin crew."
Pros: "Crew were nice, boarding ok and on time, flight took shorter when planned."
Cons: "Premium seats didn't have enough leg room to stretch, they could change the wall into curtains as in Lufthansa."
Pros: "The leg room. The great service and attitude."
Cons: "The food... needs to be improved, even if it means charging a fee."
Pros: "Crew exceptionally carefull and nice, boarding was quick and well managed. Landing was earlier than planned so as to leave enough time to go to the next gate"
Cons: "Food was just okay, some beverages had to paid like in low cost flights"
Cons: "No one from the flight crew gave us the border card. We waited in the border line only to be told once we reached the front that we needed to leave the line to fill one out. No guest on the Oslo to Edinburgh flight was given one."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. Boarding was fast and easy. Flight crew was attentive and friendly. I would 100% fly with SAS again."
Cons: "Our checked bag was delayed for a very long time. It came out 15 minutes after our baggage carrousel claimed all the bags from our flight were completed. My wife was obviously extremely concerned and it started our honeymoon off on a more stressful note than it had to be."
Cons: "Too much meat in meals."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine, crew was pleasant, landing in Copenhagen was pleasant"
Cons: "We arrived at Berlin-Tegel two hours before our flight, as is generally recommended for air travel... to find that there was no one working to check us in to our flight, and no option for automated boarding passes. We had to wait for a half an hour before a desk attendant for SAS showed up to begin checking people in specifically for our flight. We were told by floor staff that desk staff usually don't even arrive until two hours before the flight they are supposed to check in. Then when they arrived we were told we had been waiting in the wrong line (priority) and had to get at the back of the regular line. There were no signs, so we had no way of knowing this. Then someone else told us one line was for if you already had your boarding pass, the other was for if you didn't: luckily we had chosen the right one, but a bunch of other people had to move again. One passenger mentioned to staff that it would really help if there were signs (there were monitors, but they were blank) but she was ignored. The line was massive and there was only one desk agent, so it took a long time. Anyway by the time we finally got through security we only had 20 minutes before boarding. I don't even know how everyone else behind us made it onto the flight, or if they did. At our gate there were literally ten seats in the waiting area. So of course everyone waiting for our flight was clustered around, standing awkwardly, and couldn't help blocking all the walkways. Then when we thought we were finally boarding the plane we just got onto a shuttle bus to go all the way across the airport to where our plane was waiting. Overall, pretty ridiculous. I have not flown out of Tegel before so I'm not sure how much of this fiasco was the airline's fault and how much was due to the airport itself. But we were very frustrated by the time we finally took off, and will probably avoid both (Tegel and SAS) in the future if at all possible."
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "The plane was a half hour or so late taking off. We waited on the plane for most of that half hour with no explanation of why When calling rows to board -- after calling rows 1 through 13 she then called rows 41 and after. She skipped our row 14. This could definitely be an issue with overhead space"
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Cons: "The meals were mediocre and should be up to the standard of the rest of SAS service. The selection of movies could have been wider. They do help pass the time."
Pros: "The interior of the plane - Clean, bright an shine, even it's an old 737-700,"
Cons: "To add some selection of the food"
Cons: "I arrived in Copenhagen with no ticket. I was unable to print my connecting ticket in Gdansk and the woman at the SAS counter in Gdasnk could not help me either. When I landed in Copenhagen, I had several hours before the next flight. I went through immigration and went to the SAS counter where my gate was. Woman told me I could not print the ticket there until an hour before the flight, but if I wanted to go back through immigration, I could get it printed there. I opted to just wait. One hour before the flight there was a huge line of people like me who had not tickets. I stood for about 30 minutes until I finally got it. Then flight was delayed an hour... Everyone was really nice and the flight was enjoyable, I just don't get what the heck is up with their ticketing system. Why can't I print a ticket at any SAS counter with printing capabilities? Why doesn't the phone app work? Why can I print connecting flights at kiosk?"
Pros: "We left on time and arrived early. I got to check one free bag."
Cons: "Typically, on every other international flight I've taken, they offered at least a single glass of wine or a beer with dinner. Not so for this one."
Pros: "Not full- middle seat in coach was empty. Newish 737-700, nice crew. Seats were reasonably comfortable with decent seat pitch."
Cons: "Meal (chicken) was inedible- and I am not fussy about airline food. The in-plane entertainment system is not activated (nor on my return flight), so they hand out i-pads with a very limited movie/TV show selection- one more piece of electronics to handle. Would have been difficult juggling, along with work computer, etc. if all seats were filled."
Pros: "The plane was brand new with comfortable seats that had adjustable headrests. This made sleeping very easy. I was impressed with the food and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The seating area was cramped making it difficult to move around, do work or view the screen.I know this is typical of coach class but I still don't like it. The selection of movies was adequate but smaller than I'm used to. There wasn't much in the way of music to choose from. Only one choice for jazz and classical."
Pros: "I'm pretty sure the seats have more space and lean back further than most American airlines so that helped me get some rest. I didn't eat the food because I was really trying to fall asleep but it smelled delicious! They offered iPads to everyone to use for entertainment during the flight. it was smooth and landed a bit early!"
Cons: "Food & Beverage service almost nonexistent. Anything beyond water is almost $7.00."
Pros: "Return on investment is excellent. great ground and air crew great service all around."
Pros: "The crews were awesome and very friendly professional"
Cons: "I booked a business class, round trip ticket, only to find out that one of the legs was not."
Pros: "the seat configuration is 2/4/2 so if you get a seat by the window, you have your significant other or friend next to you and no one else which is nice. Food was decent."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have any interesting movies or TV shows. Bottom of the barrel. No coffee or tea was offered before landing and it was advertised."
Pros: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and well trained"
Cons: "The food needed salt and the bread was a little dry."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable and . The plane was over booked"
Pros: "The crew was as amazing as they were 9 years ago when I flew Aer Lingus. The plane was very clean and comfortable. The entertainment that we could choose from very good. Something for everyone was provided."
Cons: "One thing that I would like to see improved is for the announcements to be spoken slower than they were. The announcements were so quick that I could not understand what was being said. This should be an easy fix so I have no worries ."
Cons: "Overall pleasant More pleasant than with some other carriers recently"
Cons: "Had to cancel trip due to avalanche risk and snowed out resort. In order to claim insurance CSA travel protection I need a copy of flight fare rules. But JustFly will not send me a copy of those rules. Some crazy policy that requires I pay $150 cancellation fee in order to get those. If I own the ticket don't I have a right to know what the rules are? CSA and JustFly have created a catch 22. CSA requires something to make a claim but JustFly won't provide it!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I suggested I take another flight, they kept on saying we will not be late . Well i missed both connecting flights."
Cons: "Missed my connection because lingus sucks. Crew were miserable and was afraid to even approach them for water."
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."
Cons: "The flight is advertise as a British airways flight which flies out of teminal E in Boston. In reality the flight is through aer lingus which flies through terminal C. This should be clarified upon booking...."
Pros: "Excellent accommodations and assistance given by the ticketing agent"
Pros: "My mother uses a wheelchair and the service for her was outstanding"
Pros: "On Board Gate Connection info. A great convenience. Also, NO SECURITY check! for connecting flights. Why not at other airport-hubs?"
Cons: "Most of the flight 'COLD WIND DDRAFT'. Had to use 2 blankets. Staff said it will warm up as we cruise higher! Where does that logic come from? Outside temperature plummets as one goes higher!"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Staff did not seem engaged in customer service, did not go up and down the aisles to collect cups, paper, etc. very disappointing in tight space."
Pros: "No delays. Reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Not a single vegetarian option on the flight ??!?"
Pros: "Food was good, individual entertainment system was good."
Cons: "Cramped spaces"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "The seats were exceptionally narrow. Seats were firm and uncomfortable, my entire body was aching and it was impossible to sleep bc the cabin lights were on the entire flight . I’ve flown to Europe via British airways before and I can’t even compare the two. THe thought of having to fly back in the same aircraft is giving me cold sweats and i wish I didn’t have to"
Pros: "Pretty good flight for a good price."
Cons: "It would be so nice to have tea and/or coffee served before landing. oming in at 5am or 1am North America time is difficult and if you have to travel more that day a cup of coffee or tea sure would help. Serving tea and coffee at ten pm after serving dinner isnt good if you want to sleep..just keep it warm and serve it before we land."
Pros: "Girl sitting beside me!"
Cons: "Guy sitting behind me!"
Pros: "We got to Berlin quickly..."
Cons: "Could not choose seats Could not check in online Was not informed of the correct departure terminal Had to pay for drinks onboard Long distances between gate and terminals, seemed like the flight was 2nd class in terms of airport gate locations...."
Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"
Cons: "seats... no space menu.... skip it movie choice ... fair at best"
Pros: "Was exceptionally impressed that the cabin crew made a cabin-wide announcement concerning a passenger with a peanut allergy. Other airlines could learn a lot in this department. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "In flight service was good."
Cons: "Check in desk is always packed."
Cons: "the entertainment system is not good as other airlines, also the served drink is not good."
Pros: "On time, no lost luggage, Entertainment system when working."
Cons: "Seats next to toilette doors, entertainment system not working one of the four booked seats"
Pros: "Jet blue had best seats by far and Dunkin Donut coffee was to die for"
Pros: "Flight crew was great! Food was better than most airlines I’ve flown. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Having to pay for a glass of wine with dinner... every other airline I fly gives free alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "Nothing but the price, flight was Aer Lingus to PRA and was less than expected"
Pros: "Check-in was quick and easy. The plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating was cramped. The video screen did not work and after rebooting the selections were poor. I would have enjoyed a current live steam news program."
Pros: "Fast. Not too much time wasted between connection. Dublin = small airport, it's really comfortable..."
Cons: "Not enough room for my legs Too close to the "babies rows" = difficult to sleep. It's a pity to pay now to change a seat in the same category"
Pros: "The crew was VERY friendly and attentive. They responded quickly to requests and were very pleasant. Everyone was showed attention to details and put customer comfort at the forefront. They allowed people to relocate to seats allowing for more room and comfort once everyone boarded and empty seats were identified. The snacks and meals were tasty and generous. The entertainment options offered something for everyone - great music and movie choices. I would definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "Flight delayed by a day. No reasonable efforts to get us there through another airline."
Pros: "We had an excellent experience flying with Aer Lingus! We had a little trouble in the beginning due to my husbands CPAP machine. We did not realize you need a doctor’s note in order to fly! The first girl, Ajla, was sweet and just doing her job as she explained to us that we needed the note. My husband and I were upset, but she remained calm and kept a smile on her face. She got her supervisor, Ismail, to help us with our situation. We were able to resolve our problem with his help and check into our flight. Sean P helped us check into our flight and got us all situated. Ismail was amazing and upgraded our seats AND escorted us through security to make sure we would get to our flight with extra time to relax before we boarded! After our rocky start at check in Ismail made everything all better!! I highly recommend this Aer Lingus team at Logan International Airport!"
Pros: "Entertaining TV options"
Cons: "Did not have enough GF food options. So I went without a meal."
Pros: "The individual seat provided me with privacy and a window seat, as well as the comfort of being able to lay down flat. And the chair had a massage option!"
Cons: "The buttons to change seat alignment are too sensitive. Several times during the flight I just grazed my arms on the panel and my seat alignment moved."
Cons: "Lost my luggage for two days. Follow-up on lost luggage was extremely poor. As far as plane flight: No place to charge phone on transatlantic flight. Charged for *all* food and drinks including 4 Euros for cup of tea! Plane was very late leaving, and very late arriving. Plane seats were significantly smaller than on other airlines' international flights. Can't see any reason to fly Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The fact that beer and wine had to be paid for. It is such a small thing to make passengers welcome and feel good on their trip! Lufthansa and Swiss Air don't charge for alcohol on transatlantic flights."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats that do not always work properly (the recline will recline too much and not go back up)"
Pros: "Having two seats together but separate from the others. The departure time and connection to Edinburgh were also convenient."
Cons: "As with most other airlines, I don't like not having a direct flight from Boston to Edinburgh."
Cons: "It was supposed to be a British airways flight but it ended up being an aer lingus flight."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and the plane was clean."
Cons: "The rows were terribly tight (no one in my group is over 5'1" and neither of us could cross our legs). The cabin was too bright and the announcements were too frequent to be able to rest."
Pros: "Service was great, everyone was really helpful"
Pros: "Crew were professional and attentive Plane was clean and mechanically sound Take off and landing were on time or earlier"
Cons: "Because we bought seats from a third party vendor and not directly through Aer Lingus, we had terrible seats (right across from the bathroom) on both long flights. We could not check in on line until 2 hours before the flight and the seats available to us were single seats with no options to change. The AL staff at the airport told us that we should have booked through them directly but as you know the flight prices would then have been several hundred dollars additional for each. Seats were SO CLOSE, way too close for a 6+ hour flight Crew allowed passengers to drink alcohol until they were totally inebriated, which was unpleasant for many of us"
Pros: "Great flight, smooth, nice crew, newer movies to watch, I couldn't ask for anything more"
