Did not eat so cannot comment on the food Flight comfortable and smooth
on time for the most part (one small delay) smooth process through bag checking to bag claiming.
The boarding staff at the gate could be more professional and stop talking in their native language to each other while people are boarding.
We landed at 8:30pm and did not deplane until 9:45pm. We had to take busses to a terminal gate. It was awful.
Old plane. Zero leg room. Dour staff. Turn lighting on repeatedly on redeye - spend half the time making useless announcements. Impossible to sleep even if you were in 1st class.
Pros: "Peaceful in cabin"
Cons: "Blanket ,"
Pros: "Crew could have been more helpful, had a 30 min layover and the gate was very far away. They could have told us directions"
Pros: "Very attentive staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Cons: "Food and service. Our flight attendant didn’t seem to want to be there. Sub-par service for first class by a long shot."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about the experience and flight was the Delta Sky Club"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "K a y a k. Booked tickets on WestJet for us, but we were never told that check in and reservation was to be manage through delta so checkin was difficult and we ended up with poor seats because we were not given any advance notice"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."
Pros: "Great crew. Seat was not too bad."
Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."
Pros: "Delta’s crew is always the best. On schedule"
Cons: "This was a 2 hour flight, some entertainment would be nice..."
Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."
Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and we arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Seats are too tight and too expensive to upgrade."
Pros: "The plane was an older model but staff allowed main cabin to use 1sr class bathroom."
Cons: "The choices of free snacks were limited. They should also give more than 1 package of peanut."
Pros: "It was very quick! Great service."
Cons: "We need more food options and a little bit more legroom."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."
Cons: "Can you make the seats any smaller? Cabin space is tight and for people who suffer from claustrophobia it makes it difficult traveling. More cabin space with raising the fares would be great!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable no room to move"
Pros: "The crew was very professional, hejpful and had good attitude towards the passengers. This made the flight easy and enjoyable."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."
Pros: "No waits, front desk personnel were helpful about baggage accommodations. Clear communications."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Pros: "Nice flight nice crew just about as good as you would want"
Pros: "Easy work trip and with the storms coming in I was able to get out early without fees"
Cons: "Snow storms. Not a fan."
Pros: "direct flight from bdl to cun."
Cons: "reclining seats that doesnt give much room to person behind recliner"
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly, plane was clean, and boarding was painless and efficient. Food was served which was a huge plus. I appreciate having a choice of almonds for a snack."
Pros: "everything is fine except th nickel and dime."
Cons: "Why do airlines charge you an arm and a leg to fly then force to 1. Check a bag, or 2. Get a drink, or 3. Get a seat in an exit row or worst of all now 4. WIFI IS NOW A STANDARD ON PLANES BUT PASSENGERS MUST PAY?!?!"
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. Food and beverage service was excellent along with entertainment options."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Pros: "Delta graciously rebooked us on a different flight."
Cons: "Late delayed notification after we reached airport and kept delaying for several hours"
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "Staff was amazing! Very friendly and accommodating. We were traveling with a two-year-old and they moved us to first class to give extra room for the car seat."
Cons: "Lots of turbulents. The plane was smaller so they asked me to check in my carry-on as we were boarding. No issues getting my luggage back."
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned well from the previous flight and looked dirty from being overlooked for so long. There was garbage in my seat back pocket and the overhead areas all looked dirty as if they were never cleaned at all."
The flight was cancelled at the last minute. It was a big inconvenience especially when you pay a lot for your ticket and plan a vacation and can’t get to it on time.
Lufthansa can't handle the new challenges the pandemic brought. Next time I would do everything possible not to flight with them.
Pros: "I was not allowed to board the flight."
Cons: "Consistency of communication online and at the airline counter about who is able to fly right now."
Pros: "Food was absolutely terrible. Worst airline food of any trip I‘ve taken. Service was sparse. One beverage for the entire flight"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seat space and food"
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not that good, flight was over an hour late causing us to miss our connection in Frankfurt. Consequently we were also charged for our car pickup in Prague. Overall, not impressed with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Perdieron las maletas"
Pros: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."
Cons: "The boarding was very chaotic. Very few institutions or announcements made by ground crew. Passengers weren’t sure where to queue being that there were multiple gates for the A380-800 and were left asking each other and comparing boarding passes. Little to no air circulation in economy."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The sandwiches"
Pros: "Excellent service, professionalism, and almost no turbulence."
Pros: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Pros: "It was totally bad experience due to cancellations of the flights which I already booked to SJC airport in CA. The first confirmed Lufthansa flights No: LH 1305/ LH 488 ISTANBUL to SAN JOSE via FRANKFURT were cancelled. Then my family in USA contacted the airline and agreed about FLIGHT TK 005 / UA 1883: IST-ORD-SJC. At the checking counter in Atatürk Airport I got the last shock of being Lufthansa didn’t issue a ticket for the flight and the time was running fast and l had no contact neither with my family nor anybody else at the airport therefore i had to purchase a ticket to SFO via Frankfurt. In another word it was very bad experience."
Cons: "Check in was very poor and took entirely too long"
Pros: "In this day of continuous service cutbacks Lufthansa has managed to keep amenities that make long flights bearable. The boarding was early and efficient. Meals were decent and plentiful. Hot hand wipes were provided. Hundreds of video entertainment options and fairly friendly English speaking flight attendants. I recommend paying the small upcharge to choose seats with extra legroom. totally worth it on the long haul"
Cons: "Be early. They began boarding before the stated time"
Pros: "The bathroom downstairs"
Cons: "Late arrival inMunich, rush to connection and my luggage didn’t make it"
Cons: "My luggage didn’t arrived in Santiago And it was so frustrating start my vacation Here without medicines, winter clothes, Phones cables and chargers etc et I would like to know When I can have my suitcases"
Pros: "Good movies and TV to choose from."
Cons: "Food sucks. Bland and gooey pasta as vegetarian option."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Cons: "New plane. Very little legroom. New seat back pouches hold next to nothing."
Pros: "The app made it so easy. It is like your personal assistant with you telling you about your trip. No delays no major issues. I also liked the seats."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Boarding efficient. Chicago counter very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Some flight attendants friendly and helpful, others not so much Don't change your mind about an item or next time attendant will ignore you. If the customer speaks English, do not assume they don't understand German - so please treat your passengers well. Food was not good, have had better on Lufthansa"
Cons: "Charges for suitcase 40 euros this rediculas"
Cons: "50 min delay, had to run to next flight to make it..."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Easy check-in, boarding, on time, friendly service, good food, good movies, and overall a really nice atmosphere for such a long flight. Would recommend this Flight to anyone."
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly helpful and courteous. Service was very good even t hough the flight was completely full."
Cons: "The seating on this aircraft is inadequate for a long flights. Tall people really suffer due to seat size and spacing. There was a 6"6" man of median weight for his height who was in the middle seat next to me and he could barely fit into his seat. It was not his fault, rather the unrealistic expectation that airline seats actually fit today's customer. Not only is there not enough leg room, but the width of the seat leaves no room for arms or shoulders. No one should have to ride 7-plus hours touching the shoulders of the passenger next to them! I used to prefer to fly on Lufthansa because their seating was more comfortable than other carriers, but I will try another airline next time."
Pros: "LOVE the premium economy class - i have long legs & was traveling with two kids - we were all very comfortable!!!"
Cons: "would like to see a movie category called : academy award winners"
Pros: "Efficient and well-run operation. Professional and attentive flight crew."

Pros: "Seats in business class were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced :(((("
Cons: "Seats in business class were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced :(((("
Pros: "Love to be in the air... any flight"
Cons: "Price... When I found this flight it was under $500. As I waited for my check to be deposited the price went up nearly $500 as if it was programmed to go up if I didn't take book it the first time. From that point on, my flight was the highest priced flight np matter where I looked, my dates were the highest priced. Not happy. And my charges were more than the flight. How can that be fair. $400 flight $500 fee??? WTF??? But I needed the flight. I feel like I was screwed."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, nice breakfast pastry for the short flight to Frankfurt"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have an entertainment option, but I had a book, so the 2.5 hrs went fast enough."
Cons: "Tight quarters for long trip"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."
Pros: "Premium economy seats, also premium economy is located very well in front of the plane."
Cons: "Food quality was aweful. Not sure why Lufthansa can't train the catering in Shanghai better. Worst vegetarian food ever."
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Problems with the check-in online that made it impossible and cause that me and my partner had to seated not together. In the counters at the airport, we asked if it was possible a solution as I suffer with big anxiety and needed to be together my partner during the flight, and they answered us in an extremely rude way. Luckily we could change it with other passangers inside the plane by ourselves. Not a fault of Lufthansa but something that made the flight HORRIBLE was an extremelly smelly and very heavy guy seated next to me that used half of my seat and made me be really uncomfortable."
Pros: "everything except the fact that no explanation was given why the plane was delayed by an hour and a half"
Cons: "Food was not very good for a few euros mote per passenger food could improve a lot"

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "12 hour flights in general not the most comfortable."
Pros: "On time, quick, reliable."
Cons: "My connecting flight to Rome wasn't listed on any monitors, and four people couldn't find Terminal A on the map. Fortunately I found some fellow Americans who also couldn't find Terminal A , lower numbered gates, from our current Z gate. We went to the right, following most disembarked passengers and signs for some A gates....a mess! In the end, we had to go all the way back, past our original gate to a Customs area where they just stamped our passports and onward to our gates. It seemed like the signs only helped if you were going in the correct direction to begin with. Even my German friend said how bad that airport is for directions!"
Pros: "Good flight. Good, friendly crew. Nice snacks offered."
Cons: "Would have liked information on going through customs on arrival. Luggage was very slow to be delivered to luggage belt. Airport was not ready for flight arrival."
Pros: "The crew was very proffessional"
Amsterdam as a hub is a mess, do not use Amsterdam and KLM as a hub to European cities unless you want to miss your flight.
The boarding crew was rude, everything was disorganized with lack of information.
Short flights there is no food and no drinks, such as coffee juice, only water.
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
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: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Bus bringing us to plane was cram packed
The delayed boarding was in issue.
I am sorry to say here was not much to like about this experience. The plane was delayed for departure for 1.5 hours and then we boarded. We then sat on the plane for the next 3 hours after the jetway was pulled back but the plane did not go anywhere. We go very few updates but we were told over that time that engineers were trying to sort out a door issue. They even brought in the engineers from Lufthansa. They served one small bag of pretzels and cups of water. People watched entire movies. They then announced a flight cancellation at 7:45pm. Luckily were assigned to hotels and shuttled there in busses. I flew back to Heathrow the next day and then to LAX from there on another airline.
Flight was canceled and rebooked for 25hours later. At transfer point, baggage was lost - still waiting to hear word 3 days later. The flight itself, when In the air, was smooth and crew was fantastic. Just too many issues leading up to flying that make it hard to recommend Aer Lingus.
Aer lingus used to be awesome, after Covid travel with them is a nightmare, I would have much rather flew with British air ways or united. Arrived over 3 hours early for my flight and the line to get boarding passes on a Monday morning in the Dublin was close to a 2 hour wait, mind you the security lines and custom lines were long, we just made it to our gate and gave ourselves over 3 hours. I can’t imagine what it would be like on a weekend. The staff at the ticket counter had 3 desks open for general boarding with a line of over a 100 people waiting, I also thought it was very weird that they had a closing gate line, so if show you an hour before your plane leaves you saved yourself from waiting in extremely line. Also they told me my bag would connect with me to my connection flight. That was not true. Got to the right gate and no one working there was organized, passengers were all confused on where to stand there was no room for sitting the gates are tiny! Makes no sense all Dublin in the last 15 years re did their international wing, and they failed at that, it’s insanely tiny gate areas for international flights? Also I really don’t like how they make everyone shut or open the window shade at certain times on the plane. And their breakfast sandwich was a panini and cheddar cheese, just bread and cheese? Seems like a meal you’d feed a picky toddler.
All top class. First time flying with Aer Lingus for 50 years and will definitely fly again sooner.
Pros: "I love that you fly from Hartford. It makes my travel to Europe so much easier! Thank you!!!!"
Cons: "Our flight seemed to have only 1 toilet at the back of the plane that passengers were allowed to use so there was always a line. There was a second toilet in the crew area at the back and it seemed that they could have offered passengers to use that."
Pros: "Rapid boarding with no delays"
Cons: "No snacks, no entertainment."
Cons: "Food quality not good. Seat 16C, entertainment not good."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The Dublin airport is in desperate need of air-conditioning!! Pretty amazing and international airport doesn’t have this handled."
Pros: "Seats are nice and comfy"
Cons: "Flight was late. Ground crew were atrocious and lost passengers and then insisted on counting the whole plane twice (as they got it wrong the first time). The flight was delayed by 4hrs in total and then Aerlingus denied compensation was due. Appalling performance"
Cons: "The flight was perfect, easy on, easy off, on time, smooth comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. Plenty of entertainment options to not get bored. Food was great too."
Cons: "My seat kept sliding back and forth, on the bottom and I had to keep moving it back into place. It made it quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a free drink and snack on the short flight. We would have taken some with us on the plane if we would have known that we had to pay for everything. Just something we have never experienced on any international trip before"
Cons: "Told us to pick up stroller in Dublin. Get there and we are told that is not possible. Of course we not have arrived at our final destination without said stroller. Seats are on the pitiful side of the spectrum and gets a bit old being nickled and dimed for drinks, sodas, food. . ."
Pros: "Got a free seat next to me."
Cons: "Plane delayed at one airport and again for 15 agonizing minutes at Dublin as an Aer Lingus ground crew forgot to turn on a parking indicator according to the pilot. Then nearly missed connecting flight made it by running. Nobody would allow someone to move faster through lines for a connecting fligh"
Pros: "The crew did great - especially Rob!"
Pros: "This was a round trip. From Hartford to Dublin went without a hitch. From Dublin to Hartford was a nightmare - we arrived ninety minutes before scheduled take-off, having checked in and gotten seat assignments the night before. The flight was closing to boarding as we arrived at the airport,so we could not use the self-service kiosks for baggage tags and we got NO direction on how to short-circuit the hours'-long line, even though there is a procedure for doing so. Result - we had to rebook at our cost for the following day and pay for another night in a hotel."
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were big and comfy"
Cons: "I didn't like that we have to pay for every little thing to eat or drink... Even water. I suggest you bring your own snacks"
Pros: "I got from point a to point b just fine"
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, the boarding process could be more organized, nothing complementary."
Pros: "Flight was great and very friendly staff. Not sure why I couldn’t check in online."
Pros: "Smooth landing. Entertainment. That's about it."
Cons: "I've flown many overseas trips some first, some premium, some economy. This economy was the worst. I felt like a sardine smashed in a tin can. Also, extra to buy snacks and drinks? Not looking forward to the flight back. Would love to upgrade but site won't let you :( even if it gives you an option to do so"
Cons: "Cramped seats no vegetarian food and our bags went missing for three days!"
Cons: "Passengers line up to board instead of waiting for their number rows to be called. I ended up boarding later than most and the overhead lockers of the front rows (where I was sitting) were completely full. I had to place my baggage very far back and wait for almost everyone to leave the plane so I could collect it."
Pros: "Used the self check-in and an agent offered to help. She was fantastic!"
Cons: "Cattle call boarding.... No system. We prepaid 80 Euro for two carry-on size bags because they were slightly over the 10 kilo limit and then they announced at the gate that if carton bags were over size or weight, they would check the free. Really!!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew arranged for assistance at the arriving airport."
Cons: "The staff at EWR took the wheelchair that I was in and told me that someone would be along with another one. One never arrived. I went to the desk when boarding began. I requested a wheelchair and I was told that I could walk down the ramp without assistance by one of the boarding staff. I was able to but with great pain and much energy. If it had not been for the crew of the flight I probably would never fly on Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "The staff was generally pleasant (except for one attend on the SFO-Dublin flight. The lunch and dinner were very good (desserts as well were better than on other airlines I have flown). There was a good selection of movies."
Cons: "The seats on the trip Dublin to SFO were a bit cramped. I wasn’t able to lean my seat back as the passenger behind me asked me not to because his knees were already touching the back of my seat. The web check in was prone to error. For both legs I had to start the web Checkin at least twice. I also got an error page when I tried to print my boarding pass. I do’s not find a way to add my boarding pass to my iphone’s wallet."
Pros: "Staff was very cheery and thoughtful! Made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "No boarding gate was ever given to us, nor available by looking up online. Caused us to almost miss our flight. Very frustrating to be running around and even the information desk couldn't locate our boarding gate! Aircraft also old and worn down."
Pros: "I have good luck with aer lingus"
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: "Food & not enough water served. The seats had very little leg room on flight from Dublin to Lisbon and people had to maneuver their bodies to get into the seats."
Pros: "Flight crew pleasant and efficient considering it was almost a full flight. We departed Hartford 30 minutes late, but arrived only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "My seat had a broken fold down tray which meant that food and drinks would slide off unless I held it up by my knee."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No food or beverage provided without charge."
Cons: "Flight did not include a snack: even a tea cost $3."
Cons: "Narrowness of seats is extreme. Food was terrible."
Cons: "We just returned home to New York from our trip to Amsterdam and Ireland. The trip itself was amazing despite the sub par customer service we received from Aer Lingus that definitely put a damper on our vacation. Our flight on Wed July 19th from NYC to Amsterdam went off without a hitch until we claimed our luggage, my brand new suitcase was covered with stains. Very disappointing but we went on to enjoy our time in Amsterdam. The real problems began when we flew from Amsterdam to Dublin, first we were seated all over the plane and worst of all when we arrived my husband's bag was lost. We went to customer service and completed the paper work. Everything my husband had for the trip was in that bag. Aer Lingus only texted him once and after that he had to call every day to check the status of his bag. Instead of exploring Dublin, we had to spend Sunday shopping to get him clothes for the trip. No word from Aer Lingus. Monday morning July 24 he calls to find the status of his bag. It was found in Amsterdam and was to be flown to Dublin and shipped to our next stop in Kinsale. We arrived Monday evening to find that the bag had not been shipped. Again no word from Aer Lingus. My husband called to find out the status and made arrangements to pick the bag up when we were flying back to NYC. We were happy the bag was found but my husband still was without all of his belongings for our entire trip. On Thursday July 27 we arrived at the airport early to retrieve the bag before we checked in to our flight. We were dismayed to find that there was not a person to talk to but a phone on a column to call to get help retrieving the luggage. There was a queue at the phone with people ahead of us in similar situations. Finally someone came out to escort my husband to get his bag. We were traveling with our son, and again our seats were scattered about the plane. There was no one at checkin to help us, and we didn't get help at the gate. So we had to sit separately for the 6 hour and 30 minute flight. When we claimed our bags, my bag now had tears along with the stains. This was a brand new suitcase and it is now ruined. My husband says he will never fly Aer Lingus again and this was the worst customer service he has had in his life. The customer service was virtually non existent."
Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The plane was dirty and old, the food horrible, cramped seats, dirty and non functioning bathrooms, stressed out and inattentive staff, poor coordination of seating families together (I was told my seat was given to a woman so she could sit with her adult daughter...I wasn't asked, just told), the flight was 1.5 hour delayed, my bag was lost because the incompetent staff member in Italy didn't give me a bording pass for the Dublin to LA flight (I'm still waiting over 24 hours later to find out what's happened to my luggage). Overall, this flight was a nightmare and a huge let down after flying to Rome on British Airways. I can't say enough about how wonderful that flight was..Aer Lingus was a big disappointment and a poor substitute for BA. Very unsatisfied customer!"
Pros: "Nice, punctual, quick flight!"
Pros: "The people who worked at the front desk and boarding desk were very friendly and met my needs. As I asked to sit up front and they got me seats by aisle in the front. The beef stew were good"
Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."
Cons: "Staff at Frankfurt desk rude and dismissive. Spent hour and a half there...spent hour and a half today replacing clothes. Using faulty gps as you have lost my I-pad."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Lingus lost my wife and my luggage along with 20-25 other passengers. It took two days to get out baggages back and cost me a bunch of money, time, headache & hassle."

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Couldn't get sound in both ears on headphones. Otherwise ''twas a great flight!"
The flight was excellent. I have no complaints.
Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.
Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Pros: "The Captain was well spoken and informative. The entire crew really seemed to care. They were so efficient. All of this happened in white-out conditions, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving—the busiest travel day in history! They were AWESOME. And the gate agents took advantage of 3 people who didn’t show to let my family sit together, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was great. I just want American Airlines to stop donating any money at all to those horrible, treasonous Republicans!"
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Cons: "American Airlines consistently proves that customer service is not a priority. Their servicemen/servicewoman make no effort to show customer care at any point whenever a customer is experiencing difficulty with ticketing or boarding. They are routinely late and appear extremely amateur"
Pros: "AA has good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1+ hour delay, could’ve left on time"
Pros: "Seat seemed smaller than previous flight BDL to MIA"
Cons: "On a short flight MIA to GCM AA has seat back screens. On longer flight BDL to MIA no seatback screens. Seems backwards logic!!"
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Pros: "The flight was very quick and the crew was very professional"
Pros: "Convenient departure time originally"
Cons: "Late start due to needing more fuel because of weather at the destination. So after everyone had boarded, at the minute we were supposed to take off, they beg for 2 volunteers to get off the flight to compensate for the weight of the excess fuel. Eventually 2 people b3came annoyed enough to get off and take a $200 voucher (probably for another delayed flight.) so we were late taking off for that. At our destination there were clear sunn6 skies. Extra fuel was needed for that. So I was stuck in a seat the size of a child’s car seat for an extra 40 minutes? And when we could finally get off, my legs had fallen asleep ffrom being too squeezed in for that relatively short flight. When will the airlines focus on the passengers’ safety & comfort and not on excessive profits?"

Pros: "all around experience was good arrived in Charlotte early"
Cons: "Nothing to really say wasn't to bad to say..."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "courteous helpful & friendly crew and really great ground crew too"

Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."

Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
