Flight attendants were outstanding!
Delays really ruin days, excitement, the overall experience of traveling. Having inaccurate times and poor communication sucks.
It did not allow me to check in and left seats in advance or get a boarding pass. When specifically asked agent at gate for the row that had extra leg room, as my so. Is 6’4” she gives us a row where the seats do not even incline nor is there any extra room. Also the temp in Avon was high, making many passengers sweat Improve customer service !
Pros: "Pretty straight forward. Clean. Efficient."
Pros: "Thanks for choosing customer safety over profits. I specifically chose Delta because they continue to not sell the middle seats."
Pros: "Took extreme measures for COVID prevention. It felt very safe"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Paid for first class, expected something better than coach. Our food choice was a ham sandwich, there were better choices but the crew took them for themselves so nothing left for the 1st class passengers. Similar situation on our eastbound flight the week earlier. I doubt if Delta knows or cares that this occurs. After paying more than twice the coach fare, we expect something better than a ham sandwich on a coast to coast flight."
Pros: "I love the Food was really good thanks guys!"
Cons: "Have the Free WiFi option will amazing"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"

Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"
Cons: "Overall it was a great fight on time boarding. Earlier arrival to norfolk than advertised Excellent crew. This is my 3rd time flying Delta I’m impressed."
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Pros: "The crew onboard was very good."
Cons: "My 4 year old daughter and I were not seated together and I was told that a 4year old could not sit alone yet Delta refused to move anyone. Instead I had to get on board and beg someone to please wait h seats with us."
Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "no lunch on a flight that departed at 2 pm."
Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "They got us from A to B without any problems."
Cons: "Efficient to the point of robotic."
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "The pilot did a good job flying considering the conditions."
Cons: "Delta and Midway airport did not handle the weather conditions as well as they could have. Communications we terrible and no one adapted quickly to handle things properly. Of course the winter weather alert was mostly to blame, but what could be done to smooth things out didn't happen."
Flight delayed, missed my connection, had to sleep in Calgary airport for 9 hours. Westjet would only advise it wasn’t their fault. The wouldn’t connect me on an earlier flight as they said I wasn’t a Premium member. I will be doing my best to avoid Westjet in the future including canceling my Westjet credit card. This experience has really left me with a sour taste for this airline
Let people bring drinks onboard
The seats were tight, even for a average size person.
WestJet caused several problems. They messed up my ticket and somehow added my daughter (infant in arms) twice. When we went to connect it caused a huge problem that too 2 hours to solve. (Missed our flight). To add insult to injury we boarded the plane and it sat at the gate for over an hour while they found a ground crew to load the luggage.
Cons: "The cabin was very cold."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "Slightly wider seats."
Pros: "Maybe not Westjets fault but one of the affiliated companies. Loading up for Cranbrook, I could over hear the baggage loaders day, “we’re overweight”. Next thing you know, 4 people are short their luggage at the final destination. Takes one day out of my vacation."
Cons: "Rush through US customs going down do to late flight held plane"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, friendly Westjet crew as always."
Cons: "Tiny TV screens, no real food, seat cushion was so compacted it was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Pros: "Airport staff went above and beyond to get my mother through the airport. We had a tight transfer and they helped us make it to the gate on time."
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Cons: "They told us a flight attendant called in sick and they had to get a replacement to drive in from the City. Put the whole full flight an hour and a half late leaving. Poor system to deal with sick crew. I am a teacher. When a teacher calls in sick. School still starts at the same time. No postponements."

Cons: "Did not purchase food on the plane"
Pros: "staff was unfriendly. no options for entertainment that don't cost. no blankets to keep warm. i understand airlines need to make money, but they're making it much less enjoyable. on the upside, my flight down had incredible staff who treated me and my mother very well. sometimes, people make all the difference ;)"
Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."

Cons: "Food was cookies and coffee"
Pros: "My trip was so good that I wanted to recomend to every body.BUT, Last night when I came back to vncouver ,about half an hour I have to wait until my suitcase arrived. I saw a lady were coming back from England and she was tired and had another connecting flight that was worry will lose it , Another lady was coming from Nairoobi .Her kids were waiting for her . It was very bad publicity for your flights. But your staff and flight was very good. I hope you can solve Luggage problem. Thank you."
Cons: "Waiting a long time for my suitcase to arrive."
Pros: "everything else was awesome!"
Cons: "for much of the flight, the temp. on the plane was way too hot and there was nothing we could do about it. as i'm prone to anxiety attacks, especially while flying, this was a great concern"
Cons: "Having to divert to Calgary for broken radio. I’m positive there is enough redundancy in radio system to be down 1 radio."

Pros: "The crew was excellent !!! They were helpful and friendly. The plane was packed and they made it pleasant!"
Cons: "Lack of leg room. Fortunately ot was only an hour and ten minute flight."
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"
Pros: "The service was fantastic. It always is. I always use west jet and have never had any issues. Friendly staff very helpful. I will continue to use west jet. My parents live in Calgary and I travel a lot for work so you will see me again."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was friendly. We got drinks and snacks twice on the 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The cushions are getting thinner with every new plane. That makes for hard surface and an extra rough turbulence experience. Arm rests are almost non existent again very uncomfortable on a long flight. No Monitors in seat so no uou have to 1 have your own device or RENT one from WestJet. No place you put the device, so you must hold it in your hand for hours. VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "I had a 5 month old baby and the crew was super smiley and friendly. Also, the flight wasn't full so there was plenty of room. I really enjoyed my experience. Thank you Westjet!"
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight crew, and above all, the smooth flight conducted by the Captain.T"

Swollen ankles because flight attendant wouldn't let me put my stocking feet up in bulkhead seat, which is why I purchased it. 5. Poor service. 6. Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"
Pros: "This was my first experience with West jet -- and it compares favorably with USA Southwest which is my preferred domestic airline."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in is brutal. Ruins then entire experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Limited alcohol"
Pros: "I love everything!!!!!"

Cons: "Seat confort is bad, specially for tall travelers."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Plane arrived earlier then expected. Waited for about 35 minutes before exiting the plane."
Cons: "Schedules, schedules, schedules. What is the point of having them if they are not followed. People plan around schedules, while it is always good to on a few minutes earlier, what is the point if one is trapped inside the plane. I have a returned ticket, hope the service will improve."
Cons: "This flight had hidden bag fees. Also, it took over an hours for bags to come out the carrousel."
Cons: "Everything is perfect Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was polite and welcoming. Seats were good"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Had a 2 hour delay"
Cons: "We arrived to the airport over two hours before our departure time. We waited in line for over an hour to check our bags and get our boarding passes. When we checked our bags, we were told to hurry as our flight was boarding. We rushed through the airport to get in line to board the plane. When we got to the line to board the plane, we waited another hour before we were told to get on a bus to take us to our plane. Our plan left 45 minutes later than expected, but the airport never communicated any details about a delay. We rushed to wait in line instead of having time to get things at the airport or sit."
Pros: "Staff on board was great, super friendly & attentive!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes & there was no mention of it from the crew. They were acting as if there was nothing going on and no reason for the delay. No actions were taken to compensate for the delayed flight."
Cons: "The flight was oversold and my daughter and I couldn't check in online and or seats were given away. We were sent to a hotel far from the airport."
Pros: "No tanta supervisión en el peso de maletas."
Pros: "*Food/Beverages provided *Movie/Show selection"
Cons: "*Person in front of me was reclining their seat way too far. I think flight attendants need to pay attention to this more and prevent other passengers from being an inconvenience. *Too many people using the bathroom at once. Luckily I was able to hold it in. Maybe allowing us passengers to use the bathroom on the other side of the plane might be a good idea."
Cons: "I buy a flight ahead of time so I can be back home on time to work, I get it delays can happen, there was already a delay to start off well, turns out the flight is OVERBOOKED & even tho I arrived 3 hours earlier prior my flight I had to wait 9+ hours for another flight. If you don’t have enough seating available don’t sell a ticket that you know doesn’t exist. It’s not the first time it happens with Aeromexico, their airline is HORRIBLE & I didn’t expect with my first experience with Kayak to be just as bad. Never buying a flight through this website ever again nor am I planning to fly with Aeromexico."
Pros: "I appreciate the entertainment and overall comfort of Aeromexico. The flight itself was decent and got me home."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate that my flight time changed and I wasn't notified until well after the fact. Aeromexico at Benito Juarez didn't seem to know what was happening either. I didn't know which gate was flight was leaving from until after boarding the scheduled boarding time. When family in the States tried to get updates about the delays, the customer service rep gave incorrect information. I'm not sure that I'll be flying Aeromexico again."
Pros: "It wasn’t a full flight"
Cons: "The flight attendants were too loud and not as attentive"
Cons: "After being in the airport for over four hours waiting for the flight to depart, I was not allowed to board the plane because the airline had somehow given my seat to another passenger, even though I was sitting right in front of them. I have never experienced such a ridiculous situation. What is worse, the airline was completely obsolete in helping me resolve the issue."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They charge for luggage"
Cons: "My luggage was ripped with a box cutter or blade."
Pros: "I enjoyed being able to watch a movie on the plane. Definitely makes flying a little better!"
Cons: "We flew with AeroMexico and the customer service is horrible! No one informed us that the plane was delayed and then we heard staff talk badly about us and other customers because we asked that they give us more information. They really need to train their staff again, or replace them!"
Pros: "I was able to get home."
Cons: "Check-in at GDL airport is completely insane! They should have a line for those who have already pre-checked themselves and just need to drop off their luggage."
Cons: "Did I have to pay for my baggage"
Cons: "Everything!!!! Í Will never fly with you again"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "very uncomfortable and tight seating. Almost impossible to eat with a passenger sitting next to you. No salt, pepper or butter with food. Dried out tasteless, inedible bun served with meal. Cabin crew a little indifferent."
Pros: "No problem with the entire trip"
Cons: "Lack of quality entertainment on board"
Pros: "Everyone very nice people"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everytime we fly with Aeromexico our luggage is misplaced. This is the third time our luggage has been lost or forgotten. When asked for assistance not one flight member is there to help, and we end up waiting hours for assistance."
Pros: "I liked the meal and courteous attendants, however getting served at 3am was a little strange."
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for 90 minutes waiting for 20 passengers from another flight. That's too long... we missed our bus in Chicago because of it. My seat was also broken and wouldn't lean back, making for a long, sleepless night."
Pros: "On time and comfortable."
Cons: "My fligth was dilay for 2 hours and i got charge a baggeg on a international fligth"
Pros: "Free light meal, drinks, and entertainment."
Cons: "My seat was moved even though i had paid extra for my seat."
Cons: "The lady at Aeromexico was rude and yawned in my face twice. she charged me for my luggage twice and told me to deal with it once I get home"
Cons: "Old plane, no movie played and there was no food served even though it said there was a meal included with the flight"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Had trouble getting movies in English"
Pros: "Movies snacks coke very friendly"
Cons: "The reservation people at Aeromexico messed up my flight and kept trying to sell me more flights instead of resolving the issue."
Cons: "I am not sure if it's something new that you guys changed but on my way back from Guadalajara to Chicago they charged me for my luggage, but when I flew frome chicago to guadalajara they didn't charge me I don't know if it was something that change that I wasn't notified or what but I don't think that was fair that I had to pay without me being notified that there was a change if there was one , other than that everything else went great"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, food was adequate. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "The plane was old and extremely filthy. In flight entertainment was lacking, given the flight was over 3 hours I had expected more options."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly the planes are spacious and they give you a free meal and drink the movies and shows make the trip a lot smoother"
Pros: "Loved the movie selections."
Pros: "Service, media access. Crew was very kind and friendly. Boarding was well organized by row number."
Cons: "It was a bit too hot during the flight even though I used the overhead fan. Other than that, it was a pleasant ride. Thank you!"
Cons: "The crew was so unpolite they did not let me board because apparently i was late and instead of helping me connect with another flight they told me they could not do anything...the crew at the checking was so rude...i missed my flight I will never use this airline again Delta was much better"
Pros: "Most of the Staff was friendly"
Cons: "No wifi, some staff were oblivious of how often they hit you when walking through the plane disturbing you during the flight. I started to think it was intensional. But the other staff were wonderful."
Pros: "We've been flying with Aeromexico most of the time because of their customer service. They're professional, and with a smile. We'd never experience any issues or delays. We also appreciate the fact that we get food which is something you don't get with other airlines."
Cons: "Not getting bumped from a flight set up 2 months ago"
Pros: "I liked the fact that Aer Lingus screwed up so badly that I got to fly United back to Chicago instead of Aer Lingus."
Cons: "They could have gotten us to and from our destination on time. Ten hours late coming in and 24 hours late getting out. They could not have lost our luggage for 5 days. The logistics people haven't a clue. I feel sorry for the customer service people who have to work for this organization."
Cons: "Food was meh...would have rather had a sandwich than the congealed mess that was supposed to be cheese sauce. Needed way more water offered for such a long flight."
Pros: "Seats offered decent space and crew was nice."
Cons: "I called the airlines and requested a special meal, and was only provided it one-way so was left unable to eat anything. Water was free, but would only give you small amounts and was very infrequent. Waiting in the queue to check luggage took over an hour. There were only a few attendants, and at one point all attendants left except for the one that was checking in flight attendants. Awful."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Rude flight personnel. We werent assigned seats by each other when we have a four year old. Personnel was rude when addressing the issue. Very rude flight attendent as well. Flights were not child friendly in regards to beverages. No apple juice or milk. We will never fly Air Lingus again."
Pros: "Crew was professional and polite. Food was tasty. Good entertainment available."
Cons: "Unfortunately, some technical issues prevented us from taking off on time, and we had about an 1 hour and 15 minute delay."
Pros: "Crew members, pilots, food, entertainment."
Cons: "Couldn’t pre print boarding passes."
Cons: "Dublin airport was very confusing! Inconsistent information about gate and flight details in the monitors - was stressful enough that flight was delayed"
Pros: "Staff held the plane 30 minutes to allow us to make the flight."
Cons: "Its hard to sleep on the plane when staff"
Cons: "US pre-clearance involves a second run through security, which required again getting all liquids into one place. I also means arriving another 20 minutes early at Dublin airport. I suppose this affects every carrier from Dublin to US."
Pros: "Service and people were nice enough"
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable and thin. Less room then normal US domestic flight. Lost my bags."
Pros: "We arrived minutes earlier."
Cons: "The cabin lights after dinner were supposed to go off so people could sleep. The lights were going on and off uncontrollably the last few hours of the flight. Flight attendant said the plane had issues with the "control panel because it was an old plane". The worst part was when a female flight attendant wouldn't move her feet over a few inches while sitting in her chair, so that I (a pregnant woman) could use the closest bathroom to my seat in the back cabin. I had to ask her twice and both times she confirmed "She was on her break and would not move her feet" so that I could use the bathroom. Also note, the seatbelt sign was off but that wasn't even her excuse. The bathrooms were dirty and the toilet seats need to be replaced to be asked to sit on those is degrading!"
Cons: "Tight plane. Curry? Really? Couldn't get boarding pass for partner airline until I got to the airport. Never again! Amateurish airline. Directions from staff made us go through security again."
Pros: "Food was definitely improved!"
Pros: "Seating location was as expected and service was great. We enjoyed the overall flight experience. In hindsight, I did appreciate the customs check in Dublin versus having to do it in Chicago. That ended up being a nice surprise."
Cons: "Not as rushed as with Milan, but still a lot of confusing check points with poor instruction along the way. More of an airport design than anything, but still it was 'unnecessarily' confusing."
Cons: "The entertainment console wasn't working properly, very poor sound, could not access maps or games at all"
Pros: "I paid extra for food and my seat so I don't like giving 5 stars for what I paid for."
Cons: "Changed my friends seat after she paid for bulkhead months ago! The woman in her original seat had just booked her flight two wk's ago!!!! and my friend hurt her knee on the trip and really needed the extra room!!!!"
Pros: "Everything on time, good crew service, good food"
Cons: "Entertainment system issues: slow response, flight info maps didn't work"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable with very little padding. I'm glad I went to seat guru.com prior to my flight so I could bring a seat cushion!"
Pros: "Please see end of negative comments."
Cons: "Four hour delay that started out as a one hour delay, then we were told it would be a two hour delay. Ended as four hours. First mechanical and then fuel spill. Since the delay was so long the hallway lights in gate area seemed pre-set to turn off; so they did turn off, leaving travelers in the waiting area in semi-darkness. On the positive, we were each given 7euro food voucher and closest food vender remained open for us. Ground crew maintained their professionalism and good humor... even when all could see jet fuel leaking out of the fuel truck lines attached to the aircraft and runway/taxi/apron staff scrambling as the fire trucks pulled up. Fuel pooled around the truck and formed a riverlet flowing about forty feet .Yikes! ...but in the end we got home safe!"
Cons: "After booking 2 months in advance to be placed at the LAST ROW next to the toilets? I will think long and hard before booking Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Enjoyed Empty seat next to me. Food was good. Good attention for snacks and drinks from flight attendants. Boarding process was orderly and efficient in Dublin."
Cons: "Date: Mon, 11 Sep 2017 09:26:17 -0500 Subject: Re: How was your Aer Lingus flight to Chicago? The Aer Lingus flight was fine, but Vanama, the middle agency that youhave processed my tickets through- caused me a lot of stress. The daybefore my flight, I was trying to check in, and I received a message thatmy reservation was cancelled. I called Vanama, who rudely put me on morethan 30- minute hold on the phone, told me that Aer Lingus would not dealwith them, but the customer directly. I told him(Daniel of Vanama) that Ihave paid for my fare, that it was their responsibility, not mine to dealwith the airline. Never-the-less I tried calling the Airline, severaltimes, and listened to their own voice messages up to 2 in the morning ofthe day of my flight. Lacking sleep, and still not packed, I went to bed, went very early to the Madrid airport. I knew by the look on the AerLingus(Cristina) staff that there was a problem---she went ahead issued mea boarding pass, told me to go to the ticket counter in Dublin, and ask forhelp. After going from one floor to another, and another, to twodifferent staff-the problem sorter at Aer Lingus told me, Vanama never issued the ticket. That they should not have let me board the plane in Madrid, but he said he took care of the mess. Now you want to know how my flight went."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses kept a cheery attitude and tried their best to deal with the customer complaints and the constant need of attention of people whose entertainment units didn't work."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was the unlucky one and had the broken tv and remote set for the entirety of the plane. About 1 in every 3 people however were experiencing issues with their video or audio and had to have their sets rebooted multiple times. This was mainly due to it just being a very old plane and the systems not working anymore. As one of the stewardesses said, she can reboot it, but shes not an engineer. It is majorly time for them to update their interiors."
Pros: "SItting on the aisle near the toilets"
Cons: "Seat curved up on the sides which strained my back & thigh muscles."
Pros: "No one was assigned the seat next to me so I got to slide over from my leg limited seat."
Cons: "Sound quality on movies was terrible. My suitcase made it with me but my golf clubs did not. Still waiting on word about clibs"
Pros: "I liked the level of concern the crew had for making sure we didn't miss our flights after severe delays in Amsterdam."
Cons: "I didn't like the security process. It was redundant and not well thought out."
Pros: "On time. More or less comfortable. Food was fine. Attendants were professional."
Cons: "Limited entertainment; old screen and remote was hard to work."
Pros: "All flight attendants were cheery & kind throughout the 8-hour flight."
Cons: "Only downsides were with Dublin airport/U.S. security, so not Aer Lingus's fault."
Pros: "I liked that they eventually let my wife and I sit together."
Cons: "The tickets we were assigned were separate. I have no idea why you would assign a couple separate seats, but thankfully they were both window seats and excellent bargaining chips. They partnered with United to get us home and only booked out luggage to O'Hare, which was not our final destination. They lost two identical bags along the way from Barcelona to O'Hare. My bet is they're being rifled through in Dublin right now."
Pros: "Great flight on this flight. Reagular earbuds work with entertainment system, seats were very comfortable with a bit of more leg room, again, the food was great."
Cons: "Delay after delay for hours and hours, and not even complimentary wine and beer like other airlines. Finally we're provided with a meal voucher after every restaurant in the terminal had already closed"
Pros: "inflight entertainment uptions were good."
Cons: "check-in terrible, website was down, stuck in a window seat for over 9 hours. seats in main cabin are too small."
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: "My fiancé and I were on our way back from Ireland (where we actually had just gotten engaged!!!) and the flight attendants made our return flight amazing!! They were so nice and congratulatory and even provided us complimentary champagne. I cannot rave enough about the excellent customer service we received!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They were efficient and easy to understand."
Cons: "Nothing wrong here."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment screen and choice of shows, movies and music. The extra back pillow was nice. And the prepackaged food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "not enough leg room, I have long legs."
Cons: "I wrote to Aer Lingus many times to change my son's flight (I couldn't book him on the proper flight due to an issue on the Aer Lingus web site). I had to wait on hold for hours, and even though they admitted the mistake was theirs would not change his flight to match ours (which we booked via KAYAK)."
Pros: "Everything was smooth, movie selection was good, food was good."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed a bit grouchy the whole flight, but all the other ones were warm and hospitable."
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."
Pros: "Pilots and crew were courteous and professional"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too cool."
Pros: "The crew were nice and you could tell they were frustrated with the situations we were in as well. The food was pretty good, and entertainment was adequate for the transatlantic flights."
Cons: "We have a total of 4 flights with three legs of our travel. Aer Lingus failed to successfully complete any of them without substantial delays and cancellations. Every flight was botched, and three of them required us to sit on he plane on the runaway for substantial amounts of time. I'll be making a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and never flying with them again. They were abysmal, and the worst experience I've ever had flying."
Cons: "bags were not correctly tagged all the way through from Madrid to Cleveland by partner Iberia."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the movie choices were excellent, Both flights were on time."
Cons: "Waited at ORD for 45 minutes for flight check in desk to open. Process should be automated or at least the desk occupied for airports with long TSA lines. I did request decaf coffee and never saw the stewardess again. Precheck was a waste of time. Our group had to wait in line for our baggage tags because online system not coordinated with system in airport. The crew member I had in my aisle, on the return flight, was abrupt! Dinner tray delivery and pick up was slow, at least an hour after receiving the tray. Crew member offered me tea or coffee and assumed I did not want my sandwich when I responded no to those two choices. Crew seems to be distressed when water is requested."
Pros: "It was great to have a selection of shows you could watch for free on your own screen."
Cons: "A lot of the controllers/remotes for the tvs didn't work. combine that with non-sensitive screens made it difficult to navigate menus. Some screens could only be used with the controller so if your controller was one that didn't work, you had to have an attendant reset your whole screen to exit the menu."
Pros: "That long flight was awesome! So many extra seats to choose from and I could spread out. The crew was very polite as well. Lastly the movie selection was great!"
Cons: "I would change the headphone jack on the seats to standard size to allow people to use their own headphones."
Pros: "My family of 3 had assigned seats in 3 different rows and we have a 5 year old. As soon as we checked in, the staff ensured that at least 2 of us could sit together and had new tickets ready for us when we got to the gate. It made what could have been a very stressful situation, very easy to manage!"
Cons: "I don't understand why you don't offer online check in. My fiancé and I arrived to the airport three and a half hours early in hopes that we would be able to at least check in and choose our seats then but even with that much spare time, there were only 5 seats left and they were all middle seats. We were stuck sitting around at the airport for nothing when we could have been enjoying at least an extra hour with our friends and family if we would have just been able to check in online 24 hours prior."
Pros: "Service and drinks"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour in London and then immigration and customs in Chicago were awful"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Pros: "The crew was very good, really polite and nice and helpful. Pilots or the plane's auto landing system did a good touch down in a hard windy condition at Ohare."
Cons: "Cramped seating as usual in economy, but BA's is better than others in most cases. A few extra inches of leg and knee room would make all the difference in the world. Our worst experience is the over zealous highly inefficient very slow tedious carry on bag security system at Heathrow terminal 5."
Cons: "Flight were delayed abnd canceled"
Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Good good, seats comfortable, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Reclining seats meant cramped leg room"
Pros: "Customer service in London extremely helpful"
Cons: "Left our bags in London"
Pros: "crew was great, food was very good"
Cons: "entertainment bit old, too many Indian movies"
Pros: "Quick boarding, very nice crew. Helpful with infant. Lots of snacks good food."
Cons: "Missed flight due to incompetence"
Cons: "We did not know it was Finnair until we got to the airport and could not find Brittish Airlines flight. This is on Kayak because none of your information indicated anything except a British Air flight. We asked several people and finally figured it out only they changed the gate at that point and we almost missed the flight after sitting in the airport for three hours"
Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"
Pros: "The crew were great"
Cons: "The meal served left much to be desired."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "My monitor didn’t work and I asked about it twice. Two crew members said they would look into it but it never got reset."
Cons: "The seats were way too close. I even paid for an upgrade. My legs were get cramped and the width of the seats were awful!"
Pros: "Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again"
Cons: "Flight connection in Chicago for flight to Austin was missed. Had to stay the night in Chicago instead of getting home to Austin that day."
Cons: "My baggage was lost. This is ridiculous."
Pros: "Fortunately, BA got us on another flight--so our vacation plans weren't totally ruined!"
Cons: "Unfortunately we didn't receive notification that the originally scheduled flight no longer existed. We had paid a higher price to use the regional airport. When attempting to check-in online, there was no flight. The new flight involved a 2 hour drive to a different and added 2 weeks of parking charges that we wouldn't have otherwise had."
Cons: "Older plane with small display for entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was nice and food was decent. Flight left a little late but made up time in the air so arrived timely."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic - after having first class and preferred passengers board, it was a free for all for all other passengers, which doesn't make a lot of sense and caused a long line. Due to a malfunctioning piece of equipment, the plane was about 90 degrees during boarding and while waiting for takeoff, which was pretty miserable. Temperature was fine after takeoff. The plane itself was very old, seats were cramped, and the screens for movies/tv (and selections themselves) were very poor, which is disappointing for an 8 hour flight. There were no power hookups either, which my Aer Lingus flight a few days beforehand offered. Finally, the passenger in front of me put his seat back while the plane was boarding, making it a struggle to get into my seat while boarding and to get out of it to let others in my aisle out from time to time for the restroom. Can't really blame the last one on the airline, but it added to the misery."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Individual tv stations, great customer service."
Cons: "Not a big snack before we landed."
Cons: "1. Allowed us to book connection but time is limited. You need 5 hours layover to get to gates in London, every gates seem to be requiring to ride a bus. 2. We missed our connection and booked us to the next flight, waited 5 hours. 3. We were assigned to row 54, headache the whole trip, almost throw up at the end. 4. my daughter almost didn't eat because apparently only have chicken curry. My daughter is vegetarian."
Pros: "Great movie options. Numerous offers of water and juice. Friendly crew."
Pros: "We had a ton of extra leg room"
Pros: "The staff were prompt is serving food and drinks, good selection of movies on board."
Cons: "Other passengers weren't the best, and unfortunately there were many small children on the plane, which meant it was very noisy."
Pros: "AA has domestic US mkt. monopoly - they don't care to improve. People will not stop traveling so take them for suckers!!!"
Cons: "On flight service"
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."
Cons: "The air in the airplane was very cold and no blankets were provided. The aircraft seemed very old. Small movie screens on the ceiling, too far away to watch movie."
Pros: "Same as before. But I flew with Iberia."
Cons: "The seats in standard economy were the worst/most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in on an international flight."
Pros: "Everything worked as it should. A lot of people on board. Excellent food and service. Uneventful travel, which is what you want!"
Cons: "Could not check in advance. At least this was not clear to me from the email notification."
Pros: "I'm alive and i eventually arrived at my final destination."
Cons: "50 characters is too few. the check in crew made me miss my flight."
Cons: "Is way below par when compared to emirates or any other international airlines"
Pros: "I go good service in London with the assist. I liked my seat. All the crew were very helpful. Seat was okay and my travel companions were okay also. The flight was late on arrival in Chicago. But they had wheel chair assist and a nice girl Veronica that stayed with me until I got the shuttle to the Reniassance Hotel in Chicago. Great room and comfortable. Nice to have the dinner and breakfast coupons. I got assist to the airport in the van and help boarding my plane to El Paso. I give British Air ways an excellent star."
Cons: "Just the overnight but British Airways made it fine."
Pros: "Great crew. Decent food"
Pros: "Good beverage and food service."
Cons: "The movies could not be started on demand but only on schedule and could not be paused and restarted"
