Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "More food options. Free WiFi."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "First the flight was delayed for 1.5 hours as it left the previous city late, no reason was given, however when the plane finally arrived we boarded a hot plane that was experiencing electrical problems. The plane was rebooted multiple times, making it even warmer as the air was shut off with the plane. We waited on board at the gate for over an hour to be told we would deplane and reboard a new plane. All in I experienced a 3.5 hour delay on a late night flight. The second plane was much more comfortable, but didn’t make up for the long delays"
Cons: "due to delays, switched to United"
Pros: "The timeliness, crew were very nice and courteous. The overall feel was very positive. The lady at the check in counter was amazing.she was friendly,welcoming and set a very good tone for the flight"

Pros: "Everyone from counter check-in to flight attendants were very kind. You just don't see that anymore. This is my first time with Alaska Airline and I would be glad to fly you again."
Cons: "The Gogo internet was very slow to non-existent -- like dial-up slow. WiFi delivery may not be Alaska Airline's fault, but $40... woof. For that price, I want it to be blazing fast."
Pros: "When flight was delayed for better than two hours with mechanical problems, they allowed us off the plane, kept us briefed, made up some of the time in the air, provided free drinks and discounts on subsequent flights. If you can't be perfect, they displayed an exemplary response when things went wrong."
Cons: "flight two hours late."
Pros: "Flight attendants and gate staff are welcoming, attentive, and helpful. Food onboard is well above average."

Pros: "Clear regular flight notifications. Clean cabin. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Both flights in and out had snappish flight attendants who were short-tempered and actively unfriendly. Otherwise fine flights."

Pros: "I like that there is good legroom for long flights. I also like the entertainment."

Cons: "Bad wifi/internet connection. Toilet in first class cabin stopped up. Plane interior needed refurbishing."
Pros: "Crew was so awesome keeping us hydrated the whole time! Early flight arrival, and it was such a smooth trip. Comfortable seats, and not what I was expecting from an "off" airline"
Cons: "It was quite hot sitting next to the window."
Pros: "Flight attendant really kind and helpful, brought me tea and honey for laryngitis."
Cons: "Pilot should welcome, check in at some point, and definitely comment on turbulence or any turning on or off of seatbelt sign other then for takeoff or landing. Was really weird to get no updates other than from flight attendance when at times we had bad turbulence but silence from cockpit. I'm afraid of flying so I listen for this every time I fly and this was first experience of so little from pilots."
Pros: "The entire on line checking in process including self bag tag was easy and bag drop was efficient."
Cons: "Initially I had problem with on line checking in. So I called help as was suggested. But the agent was not helpful or resourceful in solving my problem. So I said goodbye and tried it again from beginning and it worked."

Pros: "The staff were pleasant, helful and truly desirous of making sure all had a comfortable flight."
Cons: "Miss the real airline food. Don't like having to pay 6 dollars for a box of munchies. Especially when you are flying trough two meal times."
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english. For some crazy reason she singles me out and says "you understand that sir". My neighbor in seat 17b said "she told you off hahaha". I was embarrassed."
Pros: "Best flight attendants in a long time. Lots of fun!"
Cons: "seats seemed extremely narrow"
Cons: "When you changed board gate, please let us know through broadcast and write notice on the previous gate."
Pros: "I think Alaska is trying hard to compete with the big boys, and they do a good job. Seats are comfortable and the entertainment device is really good."
Cons: "Had to change my flight- $125 cancellation fee is almost as much as the flight itself. At least let people use their credit on Alaska like Southwest does! Makes me hesitant to ever book with them again."
Pros: "Great service , great crew members treat you with so much respect and help you the best they can. They need to train the staff from America Airlines."
Pros: "The food, the service, the ability to charge my phone"
Cons: "Still haven't received email from Alaska with voucher for bag that was damaged on the DCA-PDX leg. Alaska PDX supervisor stated it would arrive within 24 hours, which was on 8/12/16."

Cons: "First time flying with a partner through Delta, so they stuck us on a Virgin Atlantic flight meaning I didn't get my free Delta check in bag (a fee of $60 each way) when I have gotten it every other flight I have ever taken with them. It was also 2 whole hours late in boarding."
Cons: "Nobody was sat in the overwing emergency exit row seats for the whole flight (so nobody had been briefed on how to use them) and the tray tables for these seats were down during the flight effectively blocking the emergency exit in the event of an emergency. Potentially very dangerous"
Pros: "The crew were informative and friendly and attentive. We fly often and the food on this flight was the best we have had in a very long time, and we weren’t even expecting any. Thank you for a great flight Virgin ,"
Cons: "Long walk to the gate but no problem"

Eventually got transferred to Air NZ 777.Great flight .... would never use Virgin again. AKL/MEL FLIGHT 13/7 CHANGED FROM 6:30 TO 7:50 TO 8:10. No advice. Online system down. Unable to get updated status. 20mins call to Philippines. No apologies.Ended up on an A330 800 .No USB points. Got a seat, but everything from cushions to Coke had to be paid extra. At be slightly cheaper, but no better than Tiger"
Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive through out flight."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and helpful. I also liked that the exit row that I was given had more than enough leg room, the dinner was really good for airplane food and snacks were great also. The attendant that I had for my section also told me that all food and drinks were free so they gave me a few extra adult drinks here and there which is a plus for how long the flight was going to be. The movie selection is great also having some on there that are still in theaters is a huge plus."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed way out of order, they made so many mistakes and nobody knew what to do, then you have the pushy passengers that are sitting coach getting mad that you're boarding before them. Breakfast left me wanting something else, lets just say this if you are given the choice of something vs french toast, take the something."
Pros: "Safe flight, good crew"
Cons: "Food quality was poor."
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
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."

Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."
Pros: "Excellent service. It should be the benchmark for the airline industry."
Pros: "Getting off the flight"
Cons: "The seat was excruciatingly uncomfortable. My legs went numb within an hour. It was hot and stuffy in board, the head rest kept slipping down and hurt my neck the legroom was tiny and cramped my knees and feet. The jerks behind me shoved their feet in the seat and I was disturbed every rime they tapped their screen. Mine wasn't working well so I had to repeat pressing my screen the entertainment selection was lame. The food was stodgy undercooked glutinous and bland. The snacks were stale and the tiny drink servings were almost pointless. Clint think I'll fly Virgin australia again"
Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."
Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."

Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Cons: "It was late leaving."
Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."
Cons: "The food I had food poisoning"

Pros: "Frequent drinks, attentive stewards/stewardesses, good gluten free meal, comfortable seats smooth flight First checked bag is free."
Cons: "Seats were very slim - armrests were pressing on hips when trying to shift my bottom to change position. The 45 minute delay due to fog. No snacks - like nuts, pretzels, etc"

Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews. Good stuff."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Cons: "2 seats and neither tv/entertainment centres worked....unacceptable on a 10 hr flight!"

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Good boarding process. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Its a long, long flight so can't really complain too much. Overall, it was a good flight."

Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Service on tme"
Cons: "Small plan"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Pros: "How can airlines help screaming children?"
Cons: "Screaming child on plane for 30 minutes have me a headache- perhaps flight attendants could offer something like coloring books or stickers to help in the future. When I got too baggage claim the baggage claim not listed. Ticket agents declined to help, so I was walking all over try g to find which claim area to go to which was frustrating."
Cons: "Aircrafts were not maintained well and they had to return causing a 4+ hr delay"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Cons: "See above description"
Cons: "Between the flights being delayed or cancelled, and delta not giving updates or even caring about passengers"
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."

Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."
Pros: "Length of flight was good, one of the flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant arguing and having words with a passenger BEFORE the flight even took off was very alarming, the attendant had walked past the seat, we saw her face change, she halted and walked back to the passenger and a very heated and negative exchange ensued, then another flight attendant came out and threatened to evict the passenger from the flight, this was before the flight even took place .... all passengers were like just remove them already ... t his is a short flight and most of use were connecting from a long flight from overseas ...."

Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarkation at Belfast"
Cons: "They do not offer free bags to America anymore."
Pros: "The only thing to like was for the transatlantic flight they have a pretty nice selection of moves and show to watch."
Cons: "Not enough space to write all the thing wrong here. I will never fly Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "Transferring to another airline that was “serviced by”. British Airways ended up being 2 hours of stress, confusion and running to our gate. This should be made apparent while booking. Had to go through security 3 times in Toronto."
Cons: "Ran out of my preferred food choice."
Pros: "Good seats. Friendly crew. They were late serving the breakfast snack, must have not been watching the time, but it made me chuckle."
Cons: "The check-in at Washington Dulles was understaffed. Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."
Pros: "Special meals were great"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was a bit rude"
Cons: "Neither wi-if nor the movie system worked. Fortunately we had strong tail winds so an 8 hour flight was 6. They should have let us know while we were still in the terminal so we could purchase a book or download a movie. Beer and wine had to be purchased on an international flight. No economy plus."
Pros: "Well maintained and good friendly staff."
Cons: "Alcoholic drinks should be free."
Pros: "The airplane, crew, service, hospitality, and enternaintment were great."
Cons: "Logistics of US border control while leaving Dublin was not as efficient nor smooth as the EU side."
Pros: "Had to cacel this flight"
Pros: "The flights themselves were nice. Food was fine. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Getting to our connection was awful. Prescreening getting into the US was terrible. Got selected for special screening and the officers said the gate knew we were held up there. Only had one hour to reach connection. Lost an immense amount of time getting swabbed and patted down. The gate was closed when we arrived. Had to run to the gate. By accident we found out the gate was closed from someone who happened to hear word that we were looking for the gate to JFK. Almost didn’t get on the flight. If we didn’t run who knows if we would have made it. If you are only giving people an hour to get to their connection, then don’t let them get held up for 40 minutes. It’s idiotic."
Pros: "plane staff asked passengers that if they did not have a plane to catch to allow those who did to deplane first."
Cons: "Very little information regarding the two hour delay. We heard that the plane was on the ground but there were no busses available to transport us to the plane."
Cons: "Buying via Kayak seemed to put us in second class status with Aer Lingus. We couldn’t get seats ahead, nor could we check in. We never received any notices from Kayak or Aer Lingus or Justfly who processed the sale."
Pros: "Nothing really. The price was good, but only a little cheaper than others. I will pay more next time for sure."
Cons: "Hot plane (no air vents). Rude attendants. VERY small, narrow seats. They removed a few bathrooms for more seats (rows without windows now). There was nothing to like. Nothing. I was on the IAD to Dublin flight (and back). Delayed flights both ways."
Pros: "Small plane, boarded efficiently and quickly. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Basicbflight. Got us there."
Cons: "Late leaving resulted in huge rush through transfer in Dublin. Not really a fan of the "just go ahead and board" approach, bit it seems to work."
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: "Having had bad experiences with Aer Lingus before, I was hesitant to book with Aer Lingus again. But sadly, I was booking this flight last minute and had no other option. The route was Dublin to Calgary, via Toronto. I left myself plenty of time im Toronto to clear customs as I know it can take a while. The day of, the flight ended up being 1.5 hours longer than usual due to headwinds, leaving me with only 2.5 hours in Toronto. I ended up waiting 2 hours and 15 minutes for my bag and missing my connecting flight (my sister who was also on the same flight received hers in 30 mins and made the flight). Westjet was wonderful and put me on a later flight but Aer Lingus didn't have any assistance for me."
Cons: "Aer Lingus lost my sister's luggage going to Ireland and never contacted my sister once the luggage was found. She only received it the day we flew back to Calgary. Poor customer service when inquiring about the bag, no compensation for necessities purchased."
Pros: "Free update to exit row = awesome"
Pros: "Seats, Service , food Everything was great"
Pros: "Great service! Wonderful entertainment(movies, tv, etc.) delicious meal!"
Cons: "Didn't have the opportunity to book seats on return trip. Booked the seats on outgoing and found out when we got to airport they were already assigned to someone else."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old aircraft. Single aisle narrrow bodied"
Pros: "The entire crew was fantastic and the service was great. Special shout out to Patricia and Katherine."
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "The aircraft was too old and poorly kept."
Pros: "Having meals covered by the airport hotel, and quick access by car to downtown Dublin."
Cons: "Wasn't able to get to IAD when I wanted to (on same day)."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to Business class that we submitted a bid for -- it was the difference between heaven and the usual too small, too squashed intercontinental experience. The whole experience post-upgrade was top notch, from the service to the food. Thanks, Are Lingus!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and helpful. However, two members of our party (of five) lost their bags. It has been 5 days since our flight and while I am happy to say the bags have been "found", they still have not been returned to us. If all goes well, we should have the bags later today, but it's tough sledding to go for 6 days without any of your things."
Pros: "On time, not overcrowded, straightforward flight."
Pros: "On a long flight, it was great having an empty seat between me (window) and the other passenger in my row (aisle), especially given that I paid an extra $55 for my seat.. ( I do need to add, however, that 5-6 hours into the flight, a passenger two rows back became ill which required that the row be vacated so I ended up with a young woman sitting in the middle seat next to me who announced that she was sick -- and looked that way.)"
Cons: "Food was really poor. Other airlines do a much better job! Also, it would have been nice to have had the kind of curved headrest that makes it easier to sleep, especially on a long flight. The short flight from Dublin to Alicante offered this kind of headrest."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal. They were able to handle the plane issues and boarding problems with a smile and did their best to accommodate and make things right but unfortunately had limited resources available to them."
Cons: "Did not like the 2.5 hour delay and plane de-boarding/change - this is something that should have been checked before 200 people were allowed to get on the plane and get situated. Also did not like the fact that I called ahead of time (5 weeks) to request a gluten free meal (which was on my flight to Dublin I will add) and it was not on my return flight to the USA. I was starving and was not able to eat that day because the cafes were closed in Dublin (Christmas eve), no food on plane, and because of a missed layover due to flight delay was scrambling to make the new connection and could not get food. Also, rescheduling for missed connection was a nightmare. Not enough personnel to assist in process and took over an hour just to get re-assignment information. Was sent to wrong gate and almost missed new connection. Then on top of that my luggage was lost and the american airlines operating staff sent me to the wrong terminal to make a claim and it ended up taking 1.5 hours longer than it should have just to submit my claim. This is on Christmas Eve mind you, after everything else that is happened that day on this nightmare of a flight. I realize American Airlines is just a partner airline, but you choose to partner with a company that provides sub-par service and an inability to resolve issues so I suggest finding a new partner if you want your customers to have better overall experiences."
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: "The flight staff were professional and friendly."
Cons: "No complimentary beer and wine on a trans-Atlantic flight? What's up with that? The food was ordinary at best."
Pros: "Great price and friendly service"
Cons: "cramped seats, terrible audio - could not really watch the movies the sound was so bad."
Pros: "Crew was very responsive."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, miserable seats with no space"
Cons: "Both flights, outgoing and returning, had the same problem. My family was spread all over the plane. My wife was in the back, I was in the front, and my two kids (ages 2 and 4) were split apart in the middle! Aer Lingus won't allow kids to be checked in online or over the phone so we couldn't address this until we arrived at the airport. At the check in desk, Aer Lingus personnel who are usually very accommodating told us "I'm sorry. It's a full flight. You'll have to talk to the flight crew." As if boarding a an international flight with two toddlers isn't difficult enough, now we had to do it without knowing where are seats were. All I can say is thank God for the accommodating passengers on our flight. The flight attendant was not helpful so I had to ask people myself."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."
Pros: "The crew is helpful and efficient. Not a whole lot of smiling. The food is good. Even though we ran out of the chicken choice for dinner ( which was my first choice), since I was sitting in the last row I was left with beef-chili. It was very good.For snack I had the chicken sandwich and that was excellent as well. The leg room is ok. My only problem is the entertainment. The selection is limited. Some of the movies are old ( Goodfellas, Godfather). Maybe 30 movies overall and that includes the animated ones and documentaries. The TV selection is ok. I usually use closed caption that was not available for most of the movies."
Pros: "Everything was GREAT! No complaints from me. The food was great, inflight entertainment was never-ending. Though it was a seven hour flight, it didn't seem like it. We'll use Aer Lingus again when possible."
Pros: "Direct flight from Washington to Dublin"
Cons: "VERY CRAMPED couch section. Best to avoid cramped single aisle aircraft, such as this leased Boeing 757, for flights over 6 hours. Other than the plane markings and the uniforms, very little about this flight felt 'Irish'. Aer Lingus I know you can do better!"
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "Attendants were not overall friendly and a bit impatient"
Cons: "The connection between AMS and IAD at DUB was simply insane, only 10 minutes to walk back to security, us customs and another security check when the plane from AMS was parked NEXT TO plane I was about to board. Lost luggage in DUB because of it. Very bad experience !!"
Pros: "The fact that the plane was empty! It was me and like 20 other people in a 737 lol"
Cons: "Every once in a while the tv for freeze up...really it was fine"
Cons: "Delay in identifying boarding gate, had to wait in the common area until knowing which gate to go to and some gates were in opposite directions from others."
Pros: "Always fly home with them and have to say its the staff that makes this air line. There great."
Cons: "Pleasent all round"
