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.

My first f"

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Generally a smooth experience."

Cons: "Food alright"

Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection.

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."

Pros: "Uneventful"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."

Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"

Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"

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: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."

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: "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: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Cons: "..."

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: "I was comfortable enough to fall asleep before takeoff. No long lines or waiting"

Pros: "All was perfect"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 mins"

Cons: "Seat 31A: Headphone socket was not working properly, table was broken (didnt keep the food tablet), entertainment system crashed after pausing the movie. check-in baggage was lost during journey and still couldnt get found. Very annoying."

Pros: "flight was fine."
Cons: "very disappointed Iceland Air is charging $95 for 1 piece of luggage. This is making me rethink the "deal" because it added $190 to the cost of the flight."

Pros: "The process was straight forward. There was nothing wrong but nothing special."

Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice."
Cons: "No food was served for an international flight. This isn’t a budget airline."

Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable (economy), cabin was smelling urinal, flight was full, just the thought to go to the amazing country kept us (4 of us) encouraged."
Cons: "Seat comfort for six (6) hours flight could be better"

Cons: "It was so HOT in our original row (13). The woman next to us passed out, no doubt because of how uncomfortably hot it was"

Pros: "Plane was clean and well managed. Everything felt smooth as we were well taken care of"

Cons: "9 hr delay disrupted travel plans"

Pros: "Iceland Air equipment crew & service"
Cons: "Hidden charges!!!! I was not advised until I checked in that I had to pay extra $90 for my ONE checked bag. Then, I was told that if I had paid in advance that I could have saved -20%. Then I was told that I would have to pay again on the return. And I could not pay at that time to get any discount on the return baggage charge. So the Kayak ‘discount fare’ wasNO DISCOUNT, only additional restrictions, like inability to select an isle seat for my long legs."

Pros: "My headline says it all. I am a regular user of Icelandair."
Cons: "I never like it when the person in front pushes bac their seat squishing me and putting the screen on the back of their seat too close to my face, but this is true of all sidelined. They should make seats unmovable, or make everyone lie back!!"

Cons: "Very poor explanation with fare type even contain some level of fraud"

Cons: "Didnt even offer coffee or juice in the morning"

Cons: "crew were not warm or friendly. professional, but not friendly. and bag check prices were outrageous!"

Pros: "Very reasonable cost, on time, clean plane and courteous service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Movies and USB plugs for each seat"
Cons: "Small seats, limited leg space"

Pros: "I was able to email with Icelandair in advance and reserve window seats, which are my favorite. I enjoyed watching several movies on the Icelandair system, and we arrived safely and on time."

Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover, thankfully it wasn't very long."

Cons: "At the airport in Iceland we had to go downstairs after we deplaned and then come back up to check in again. No alternative to stairs was offered."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Having to pay for everything."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I never got to go. I'm very upset about this."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Worst seat on the plane - very back row - seat wouldn't recline - toilet kept flushing all through the flight. No free headphones. No meal."

Cons: "To whom it may concern, In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. In fact had it been up to me, the first time would have been the last. But due to family traveling, our plans were set. So listed below is the detailed description of my horrible travels with your airline as well as all the added expenses it cost me. Due to all of the misshaps with Iceland air I have had in the last couple weeks, I made sure on my returning flight to check in and pick the seats for myself and the family member I was traveling with for my returning flight from Gatwick to Iceland. However when we got the gate, my ticket dinged because they had moved my seat from next to my family to the back of the plane, because they over booked the flight. This has been a disaster only because of this airline. Next time I plan on using British airways, the flight I took with them was amazing and effortless on my part!"

Pros: "The Icelandair ground staff tried their best to deal with the impossible but the end result was still totally unacceptable. See below for details."
Cons: "Incompetent ground operations. Five departure delays and gate changes. 24 hour delay. Communications and customer service disaster."

Cons: "Are you serious? I fly to Europe, and the bag doesn't even make it out of Iceland? In fact, dozens of people didn't get their bags? They never put them on the plane? How does this happen? I am in London meeting with clients... and all I have is a sweatsuit. I don't have time to go buy new clothes, so I will look like an idiot in front of my boss and our clients. Thanks a lot Icelandair."

Pros: "I was the first one off the plane"
Cons: "The emergency door was in front of my seat. I couldn't sit without my knees hitting it or at an angle which is uncomfortable. I asked the flight attendants if I could I've and they said "no it's a different class". I paid for a seat on your airline and all I wanted was that seat but was given something Waltham was not what I paid for. Also, I had to hold my water bottle and book bc there was no seat back pocket. It was a miserable flight. Especially since the gentleman on the other side of the plane in front of the emerge door was able to move to one of the seats that, "was a different class". I guess just a different class for me??"

Pros: "Arrived safe."
Cons: "Technical problems kept us at gate for 3 hours."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "No food and no room"

Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."

Cons: "Reykjavik airport was cramped, with no good food options behind security. Would not bring my stroller to me; they did have (broken) strollers for common use, but I didn't get my stroller until IAD baggage claim (and it was soaking wet). So I had to go through the haul to immigration line with no stroller."

Pros: "I liked the in flight movie selection."
Cons: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."

Pros: "Quick, efficieny, comfy and they really treat the kids well."
Cons: "Delayed baggage reclaim at Gatwick and long immigration lines."

Pros: "On time, clean, price of ticket."

Cons: "You have to pay for most everything"

Pros: "Finally getting off of Icelandair for good that day."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "There were blankets. It was cool enough in cabin"
Cons: "Boarding was very difficult, exit a bus and no order to enter plane, lots of problems with people going in wrong direction and very narrow isle to try and cross paths. Very unorganized. Flight was delayed."

Cons: "It was delayed causing me to miss my connection"

Cons: "Our flight from Washington DC to Iceland was so late that we lost a day of our vacation and had to spend three hours in line at the airport to get hotel vouchers."

Pros: "They set us up with free hotel in Reykavik, but that's about it."
Cons: "Where to start? They were delayed 3 hours leaving DC because of technical issues and kept promising us they would hold our connecting flight to Zurich. That of course didn't happen, so we proceeded to have to wait in a line at their service desk for 2.5 hours just so they could rebook us for the next day. We lost a day of our vacation due to Iceland Air incompetence"

Pros: "The overnight flight from the states to Iceland was really nice and the airline provided pillows/blankets. The stopover in Iceland was easy to navigate in the smaller airport."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Comfortable, clean, and affordable! Clever descriptions about the airline and Iceland, which was a great addition to the vibe. Would definitely fly with them again, and recommend. FYI - They save money by not serving meals on the flight, but that's not a loss."
Cons: "Loved it."

Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing IAD, and arrived too late in Reykjavik for us to make our connecting flight to Paris, which Icelandair did not hold at all for the many passengers who were connecting. We were sent to England, then connected with another airline after a four hour layover. Our arrival in Paris was 8 hours late, and our bags did not get to us at our hotel until four days later. This was poor customer service by Icelandair all around, that could have been avoided by holding the connecting flight for 45 minutes. It affected many passengers, not just us."

Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Have no complaints at all"

Pros: "Very nice plane with free movies and comfortable seats."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "No food, beverage service very limited."

Cons: "never again"

Cons: "The breakfast croissant filling was disgusting!"

Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"
Cons: "The speed boarding it was confusing,no one was there in the que until they called you to board then People starting to come up from the que that was already there. Speedy boarding should be exactly that."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Landing was perfect!"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane got from a to b safely"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. Both the gluten free and regular meals. Tasteless and unimaginative. Very dodgy landing. The time of arrival given by the airline prior to flying did not take into account the fact that the clocks went back. So our pickup was delayed. Not good at 4 am"

Pros: "easy"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Long delays, little communication, stuffed into a hot bus before the plane was cleaned - not allowed off the bus, no air conditioning and kids crying whilst we were trapped for a while in the bus."

Cons: "Lots of turbulence"

Pros: "Very nice and comfortable"

Pros: "It took off. It landed. No drama. 15 mins early."
Cons: "No complimentary hookers, whisky or cocaine"

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."

Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."

Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"

Cons: "It took 1 hour to get a glass of water"

Cons: "Flight full takes longer time for boarding . But staff was nice and efficient . Lots of leg room comfortable chairs."

Cons: "At airport had line for baggage drop if had boarding passes. But, then only had one station open out of four or five. One person had problem I guess. Line didn't move for 10-15 minutes. VERY BAD!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"

Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"

Pros: "The flight was one hour delayed however the captain was extremely good in 1)explaining in details the reason for the delay (air traffic control and parking slot issues) 2) allowing us to take pics in the cockpit! It turned out to be a memorable experience! In terms of customer care, it doesn't get any better, thanks captain!"
Cons: "Delays are never good...."

Cons: "Price"

Pros: "On time and accommodating"
Cons: "All ok"

Cons: "Not really friendly. Nothing to drink. Super separated from my husband. Baby crying the whole time."

Cons: "Many passengers very noisy with no correction by staff. Children were allowed to run in the aisle."

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and polite. Energetic, good ambassadors for BA."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. My tray table hadn't been wiped down in a long time, and the prior passenger's used flight socks had not been removed from the drawer. The pillow was laughable - - flat as a pancake. . One of the business class lavs was out of service. . This was an overused 777 desperately in need of a refurbishment. And don't get me started on the ridiculous 2-4-2 seating in business class. How does BA think it can get away with it, when competitors offer 1-2-1?"

Cons: "Very bed I will never use this service iny more"

Pros: "Clean plane, efficient cabin crew, very slick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing to make it stand out from the other providers(Flybe, Ryanair, easyJet) as all complimentary offerings have disappeared."

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Seats broken..no free deink"

Pros: "Happy stewards"

Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"

Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time. Went up and came down again without any fuss. Cabin crew were efficient."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. Whilst I was travelling posh at the front of the aeroplane, why not fill it up from the back? I would be quite happy to be the last one on board."

Pros: "Polite considerate staff and more comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "Shame there are no free snacks or drinks on board anymore."

Pros: "Checked in online and very quick bag drop at MCO."
Cons: "Awful food both for dinner and breakfast. Choice of chicken curry or cheese and tomato pasta but had already run out of chicken by the time we were served. Menu doesn't seem to change from one year to the next.Bread bun like a rock, salad uninspiring. Breakfast equally disappointing with a dry bagel and a couple of breakfast bars."

Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."

Pros: "Seat was good position."
Cons: "Check in system down again meaning manual check in and causing 2 and half hour delay. This is too common with BA now and ended costing me a lot of money due to missed connections."

Cons: "Seats in the 777 were not that comfortable, in-flight entertainment system is showing its age and the food continues to be mediocre in Economy, at least it wasn't all spicy this time. Breakfast consisted solely of an uninspiring dry bagel and a crunchy bar. Taking to bringing food onto the plane with us as a substitute/supplement."
