Airline reviews

They changed my seat number without notifying me so I walked up to the seat number on my boarding pass and looked a like a jerk telling the guy sitting next to his 2 kids that I thought he had the wrong seat. Otherwise the crew was nice. The movie selection was good, though English closed captioning would be appreciated. The breakfast was awful--no flavor whatsoever. Not at all like the delicious Peruvian food I'd been enjoying during my visit.

I liked our stewardess Jasmin. Always a smile and kind.

The fly attendants were very unprofessional. Making faces to people.Felt unwelcome and intimidated to ask for an extra cookie.

Seats in Delta One were comfortable to sit in but not sleepable for eithet my husband or me.

Was surprised how tasty the snacks and drinks were on the flight. I was also quite comfortable on economy seats. Definitely better than other domestic airlines like United and American. The exit row seats were worth the leg room.

The seat provides more space for legs to stretch than other airlines.

No entertainment or food service on this flight. Hence rating.

Every thing is fine

Our favorite flights. Straight shots, with as much comfort as one would expect.

Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"
Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"
Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Pros: "On time. Good customer service. Easy route, no hassles."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "La atención de la tripulación es la mejor que he visto. El servicio de alimentación es muy bueno."
Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Better food, some entertainment, better bathrooms"
Cons: "It’s an international flight. It is what it is!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "better accommodation of passangers"
Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."
Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"
Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
Pros: "Touch screen is sharp and responsive."
Cons: "Food is ok. Used to be better a few years ago when the cuisine had a Southest Asian fusion style."
Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was uncomfortably warm. Not sure what was up with the AC but I had to change clothes and freshen up once arriving at my layover."
Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "It was late by 1 hour. Food was not enough. Was hungry since dinner was late due to delayed flight and breakfast was served at lunch time of MUC. Electrical outliets did not work in the flight and had problems in MUC for GPS."
Cons: "Water only and.. I had to asked for it. No snacks or other drinks in my eighteenth hour of flying back from Poland :(("
Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Pros: "The crew were impeccable."
Cons: "Very narrow economy seats."
Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."
Cons: "The air on the plane was unable to be controlled."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Cons: "Seat pocket was damaged and couldn’t be used. Food was at best mediocre. Old salad, old bread, no salt with warm meal."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 9 hours."
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Cons: "Food wasn't the best but did honor my special diet request."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were not too comfortable and the video screen was small."
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Cons: "Not enough room. Aisle seat was too narrow and short."
Pros: "Economy premium seating was definitely worth it. I had a great sleep. Stewards were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Better then United airline"
Cons: "Everything was awesome"
Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"
Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Cons: "Boarding three planes to three different destinations from the same gate is very confusing."
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I did not want to eat the food and the crew offered me fruit. Great A/V options."
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."
Pros: "They handed out baggage claim tickets for the larger carry-on items early so that passengers had plenty of time to rearrange their items, as long as they arrived at the gate in time."
Cons: "They had 3 flights boarding through 2 doors that led to one hallway, which was very confusing. It took quite a while to retrieve the checked carry-on items, with the effect that most of the passengers were lined up down the causeway tube, waiting. The seats are so very cramped on these puddle jumpers; this was way too long a flight for cramped seats that don't recline. The entertainment was wifi that never really worked."
Cons: "We missed the connection so never made this flight."
Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

Never more flight with your company!!!

Short flights there is no food and no drinks, such as coffee juice, only water.

Facilities for short connections.

Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."

Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Cons: "Nothing​"
Cons: "sardines!"
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"

The entertainment was nonexistent, no food, not very comfortable

The space for economy was reasonable. The flight was delayed 2 hours, changed gates 3 times, the food was mediocre, the entertainment was outdated, the worst part of the flight was the service by the crew , total lack of hospitality, bad manners, lack of care.

The check in operator

Excellent flight

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not loose my luggage:)"
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4+ hours"
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort, food could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"
Cons: "More chose in meals. I flew to and from within a week. All I had were chicken, chicken and chicken for snack too."
Pros: "DIY snack area"
Cons: "Food and seating"
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Very quiet"
Cons: "We were in the last few rows on a turbulent route. The yaw damper constantly overcorrected, resulting in lots of side to side motion for the passengers"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Pros: "Haven't flow with Air France for some time now and definitely noticed a lowering of standards"
Cons: "The gate changed 3 times and the terminal was very crowded. The staff seemed disinterested and distracted. The quality of the food has dropped dramatically."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Long delay during connection at CDG Unclear information about delay Repeated changes to boarding time Unable to take stroller during connection Had to go through security again at CDG, although same terminal (2E)"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Pros: "It was a 30min flight not much to say The crew on the ground really took care of us"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Cons: "bad smell around my seat"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."

seat was cramped, food was terrible and service poor.

The flight was late, then later, held in a bus for at least 30 minutes, no information, treated like cattle off to market. Once on the plane we waited and waited and waited for another half an hour. Really poor service, cost me more the other end in terms of car parking et cetera. Ryanair offer a much better service, you have a lot to do to get me back as a customer.

Flight was delayed, waiting area in Chicago was uncomfortable and amenities were limited near the gate.

Flight was cancelled! A total travel nightmare.

Cramped. Good staff. Food was congealed. Warm white wine.

Overall, a very good experience and a great price! Lovely crew and the food was not bad at all! A few delays but all connections were made and their Passport and customs process was very well done!

Our luggage has been lost. My grandson and I are here at our London hotel with nothing but the clothes we wore. Reports have been filed through the airport LHR, and with Aer Lingus, but no one communicates back. Never again!

It was cancelled -- and everyone involved was unhelpful and rude.

All top class. First time flying with Aer Lingus for 50 years and will definitely fly again sooner.

Empty flight was great. The food has improved tremendously. Wish the flight took off later, the time difference and departure and arrival times make it more challenging to sleep on the flight.

Though the staff was very friendly, a nearly 4 hr delay (albeit due to drunken passengers refusing to wear masks, removing said passengers, and waiting for their luggage to be unpacked, and then having plane shut down to conserve fuel, & waiting for weather) is NEVER acceptable. The drunken passengers’ luggage should have stayed on the plane and the plane should have taken off with it. Why should an entire cabinfull of passengers should have to suffer and miss their international connections? The drunken passengers should have been removed and let their luggage catch up to them in a week or so. Upon arrival at Dublin, my daughter has to wait another 10 hours for a new connecting flight and was only offered a food voucher for roughly $9. UNACCEPTABLE

Pros: "Aer Lingus crew are great. Probably some of the nicest people in the world. Lightly loaded so boarding was quick and staff were lenient about cabin baggage."
Cons: "My 757 is among the oldest aircraft in service, and it shows. Noisy and every surface is well worn. Seats are substandard in the industry for a long flight. Granted the flight was lightly filled, so that made it a bit nicer."
Pros: "Nice smooth process and good deal"
Cons: "You did just fine"
Pros: "Quick boarding and departed on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Air Lingus is like Ryan Air with an Irish accent. No space, terrible food, very low quality entertainment system with the sound muffled and barely audible."
Cons: "Many people missed their connection at Dublin. I had a horrible ~6hr wait. Aer Lingus did nothing to help or compensate."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "We arrived late to Dublin because of weather and we’re going to miss our connection to Leeds so they rerouted us via Manchester but our bags, though tagged “Rush” did not make it on the new flight and we were without them for five days! we still had to get to Leeds so we had to pay for train tickets"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "When I checked in, I was asked if I would consider taking a United flt instead of aerlingus. I agreed but the flight had already filled up so the woman checking me in offered to seat me at an exit row. However on check in I realized she gave me someone else’s ticket. It was disappointing. My first f"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour even though the aircraft was there. Also my luggage did not arrive aty destination"
Pros: "Good seats. Friendly crew. They were late serving the breakfast snack, must have not been watching the time, but it made me chuckle."
Cons: "The check-in at Washington Dulles was understaffed. Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Polite and friendly."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable and there wasn’t any room to put things in the space under the tray table. Food was below average."
Cons: "Dublin airport - huge lines foe transfers"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable, twin prop, nothing special but as expected. Smoother than expected ride."
Cons: "Boarding was by bus, which had to keep stopping for moving aircraft. And it was a cold, wet & windy Dublin day!"
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Food alright"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. The flight staff was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good. The plane arrived late, as a result we missed our connecting flight."
Cons: "This was not a British Airways flight. They should have done a better job of communicating that. I wasn't informed until I tried to check in online 24 hours before my flight."
Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."
Cons: "I had a 5 hour delay. I had to cancel the trip"
Pros: "Plane, crew"
Cons: "Boarding agent took too long to load the plane which caused a delay which ultimately had us miss our connecting flight Didn't like that Aer Lingus didn't wait for us at Dublin when they knew we were going to be a few minutes late"
Pros: "Almost everything was good. Friendly crew, easy boarding, safe flight even with lots of air gusts (thanks to the pilots!)."
Cons: "Whatever fare Kayak provided was the worst seat (last row next to bathrooms). I wouldn't book through Kayak again and instead would go through the airline directly."
Pros: "Blankets and earphones provided."
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin at British Airways; there needs to be better signage at desk. Flight was delayed and we almost missed connection. Seat would not tilt back."
Pros: "1. Friendly staff 2. Good food on the plane"
Cons: "The cost of luggage - unfreaking real to have to pay for first suit case when flying overseas and they at a cost of $100 per item!!! Definitely not recommending this airline to my friends unless they are only taking carry-on luggage. The cabin room was more cramped then usual also but it was ok."
Pros: "The crew were very professional and courteous"
Cons: "No USB ports and no way to plug in one's personal earbuds. Sounds quality on the airline supplied earbuds was horrible. Gave up on the entertainment offerings and watched movies I had stored on my iPad. And really the worst food I've ever had on a flight."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable plane that I have travelled on. Seat - unbearably uncomfortable. Toilet falling apart, parts of seats falling off."
Pros: "Boarding made sense. They boarded the back of the plane first. Kudos for that."
Cons: "The seat cushions were nonexistent. Less legroom than a mini backseat and no way to upgrade since I purchased on kayak...unless I was willing to pay $4000 more to get premium coach seats. Will not use kayak again."
Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a BA flight because I am oneworld premium member. However, I learnt the flight was operated by Aer Lingus after I bought the ticket and I had no benefits."
Pros: "Goo entertainment on Dulles Dublin sector."
Cons: "It would help if ba would hilight fact that this is a code share with are linguistic. Seat were unbelievably small and had to walk to ends of earth for both the gate in Dulles and Dublin. No free food or drink on Dublin madrid sector but thankfully not full so I could stretch out. New planes on both sectors."
Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."
Pros: "check in was efficient."
Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"
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: "Flights were on time. Planes were clean and comfortable. The food was ok - the ice cream was great as was the extra water."
Cons: "Some better food quality would be great."
Pros: "The entire crew was fantastic and the service was great. Special shout out to Patricia and Katherine."
Pros: "Crew on board were very nice and very helpful.Apart from that I am struggling to see how this is a 4 star airline. It's a joke"
Cons: "AerLingus use a Boeing757 on this route and the seats are old, uncomfortable and many have dips in them.The entertainment system is ancient and had limited stuff on it. The food was as bad as airplane food gets. The 'beef' Shepard pie was lumpy and over salted. Also you must pay for beer and wine on this 4 star airline. They use "smart flies aer Lingus " as their advert tag line. In my opinion smart flies someone else"
Pros: "The in-flight experience and service."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage did not initially transfer from the first leg of my trip to the second leg of my trip. I received my luggage by the end of the day, but it was somewhat inconvenient to not have a lot of my personal effects for several hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to preorder better meals. Good selection of in-air movies. Sitting anywhere for almost 7 hours is no fun but it could have been much worse."
Cons: "Small seats. My tray table wouldn't stay up."
Cons: "Added 12 hours to my trip and had to rebook on another airline for the second leg. The crew was unapologetic after sitting on the tarmac for three hours. Terrible airline"
Cons: "You can't get a seat assignment until you check in at the airport. I ended up in the very back row, right in front of the galley for a 7 hour flight. No sleep for me."
Cons: "You lost my luggage with my dead mother's paintings."
Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 mins"
