Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Carry on baggage size misleading"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."
Cons: "Crew was rude to passengers. One passenger asked for extra bread and crew arrogantly commented , we dont give but ok take one."
Pros: "Coach seats were comfortable but if the person in front of you reclines, your video screen will be inches from your face and it becomes difficult to get out of your seat."

Cons: "Only two options for dinner is very few options."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great and helped to pass the time. The food was good for airline food."

Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."

Cons: "Leg room was really bad in economy and the only upgrade option was to business for $10,000 so of course not affordable for the average person."

Cons: "Food is bad"

Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Pros: "Not very much. At least the staff was friendly."
Cons: "It seems like they always sit me next to the bathrooms. If I'm paying that much for a flight, I don't really appreciate having hordes of people lined up for the bathroom, bumping me constantly. I also don't very much like the door constantly opening and closing, due to noise and the obvious smell. Furthermore, I sat next to a family with 2 screaming babies. Overall, 8 hours of agony. Not a good experience at all."
Pros: "Food, staff, service"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."

Pros: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"
Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."
Cons: "Foddd no gud"

Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."

One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Cons: "NO INFORMATION and CHAOS at the airport in Istanbul!!"
Pros: "Thats awesome"
Cons: "All personel it was good."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago.

Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."

Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."
Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."

Cons: "Seating arrangements"
Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"

Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."

Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Cons: "I got overcharged for a bag $230 Dollars, both planes were delayed, the supervisor Danny at Ohare was horrible, will never use Lufthansa ever again!"

Pros: "Very stable aircraft with attentive staff"
Pros: "Great entertaining system"
Pros: "I am 6’3”. But I am also cheap. So I like being able to fit in an economy seat with more room than other airlines. Believe me, an inch or two makes all the difference."

Cons: "I didnt like the food offered"
Pros: "The attendant who did help was fantastic! The ride was smooth."
Cons: "My 12 year-old had a screen that was not working and finally we got an attendant to help us out. But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Cons: "More comfortable seat"
Pros: "nice airline clean"
Cons: "is really nice I will flay with them they are ok"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and we can't reach anyone who can help us find it. The customer service people are very unhelpful"
Cons: "My luggage was delayed and did not arrive to Madrid 2 days later after I had already left the city. I tried to contacted the Aer Lingus but their contact office was at oversea (not in Madrid). It cost me so much $$$ to make international phone call to locate my luggage. But, still without success..."
Pros: "I'm very angry that the ticket sold to me was British Airways and I was told on the airport by British Airways that I should check in at the Air Lingus counter! This is cheating and false advertising!!!"
Cons: "Everything could have been better!"
Pros: "Low price via broker"
Cons: "Because I booked through a broker and saved hundred$ I couldn't bid for an upgrade or use points to upgrade. Also transfer to international (Terminal 3 to 5) at O'Hare is awful especially because you have to go through security again."
Pros: "Flight was quick"
Cons: "Small seat no recline very crowded"
Cons: "We got to gate after standing in the lobby 30 min prior to take off and they wouldn’t let us in gate . We were in the air lingus lounge waiting for the flight and the gate attendant said she called our name on speaker which she did not . We get to gate and they say we are no longer able to board the plane"
Pros: "Excellent! They quickly offered to help me board the plane since I walk with a cane. This was my first time flying Aer Lingus from Chicago to Dublin with a connecting flight to Leeds and I was impressed with their service and efficiency. I noticed the flight attendants were attentive and courteous to passenger needs throughout the flight which was 6 hours exactly. I have flown on many airlines and the service on Aer Lingus rates the highest for passenger satisfaction. Look forward to flying them again. Thank you!"
Pros: "Beautiful flight, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to equipment issues for 7 hours. Got a $20 voucher for food."
Pros: "Had to cacel this flight"
Pros: "There wasn't much to like about this flight! The seats were comfortable and we had plenty of leg room but we paid extra for that leg room! Nothing more good can I say about this experience!!!"
Cons: "Loading for departure was almost 45 minutes late. The plane had been at the gate for at least 3 hours. Many varying excuses were given. Once boarding started, it was stopped again for mechanical problems with the plane. Each announcement assured us that no one would miss connections in Dublin!! Plane was loaded and doors were closed and secured....then we sat in the plane for over an hour without moving. Still experiencing mechanical problems. Now there was no way to get off or rebook a flight. The ENTERTAINMENT system did NOT work on the plane!! Landing in Dublin we were told to see agent at the gate if we missed our connecting flight to get info on our re directed connection. If we had not been rebooked, go to a room off the baggage area to be rebooked and then get our baggage. There was no one at the gate, the person in the room that we were directed to could not do anything, the baggage carousel broke down twice and our luggage was diverted to a different carousel with no indication that it had been moved. We had to go thru customs and go down to be re ticketed for a different flight. We waited in a long line for a hour to try to get a new flight to Hamburg. There was another 2 flights that could get us to Hamburg in time to make it to our destination But the Aer Lingus did not have a reciprocal agreement with that airline. Aer Lingus could NOT get us to Hamburg in time for us to make our connection there! The Aer Lingus agent told us that her only job was to get us to Hamburg and nothing more! Anything beyond that was our problem. We missed our 10 cruise because of the excessive delays, excuses and incorrect information given by your agents!!!! We are seasoned travelers and have never experienced such terrible service! Our trip back to the States from Dublin with Aer Lingus was just as terrible! Communication is NOT one of their strong points. We were boarded on he plane and sat for an hour and a half before asked to de board the plane. The plane had been damaged by the skywalk. We were told that food vouchers would be given for lunch and that we were not allowed to leave that wing of the terminal. It took 45 minutes for anyone to meet the passengers with the vouchers. These vouchers did not, in any way, cover the cost of a lunch. We were called to line up for boarding before most even had a chance to get in an order at the food counter. Everyone hurried to get in line and it was 3 hours later before we were allowed to board the plane!?! This does not make one want to fly again soon with this airline!"
Pros: "The movies available, the plane was new"
Cons: "Due to a computer software malfunction our departure flight from ORD to Berlin was delayed 1.25 hours causing us to miss our connecting flight in Dublin. Very little updated information about our ETA was made available, the crew kept insisting that we were going to not miss our connection."
Cons: "My flight to Dublin from Chicago was delayed therefore my flight to Birmingham is even more delayed. Let’s just say, I’m really not happy. also, I had to pay to get my family to sit together and therefore ended up paying for some stranger ‘s seat. I will contact Aer Lingus"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "The flight was booked through Jetfly and I tried to change the date. I ended up losing the entire ticket. No flight, no money. I talked to Jetfly at least 8 times and they kept confusing things, delaying things, and were not very helpful which caused me to miss any available flights."
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Service was excellent. The flight was on schedule."
Cons: "I would have liked an exit seat but none were available when I attempted to purchase one."
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "I don’t know whose fault this was. The airline, the airport, the crew members at the gate. For a multitude of asinine reasons I could not board my flight and it left without me. The kiosk attendant was rude, the security people were rude...the list goes on. I don’t know know who to blame, but wow. No one was able to help me at all. No one lifted a finger. What a nightmare."
Cons: "Didn’t serve wine"
Pros: "The boarding system made a lot of sense and was very quick. The captain was very informative and kept us up to date with delays."
Cons: "The cabin was so dry and the attendants didn't come by with water very often, Getting off the plane was horrible. We sat for over an hour while they fixed the door or bridge to the door, or something. We couldn't get off."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Space was so limited it was just ridiculous"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight ever"
Cons: "Flight did not have a very good entertainment selection."
Pros: "The service was wonderful ! I’m handicapped and I was treated very well!"
Pros: "Everything wa on time"
Cons: "Broken suitcase. I have traveled quite a bit with these hard sided suitcases over the past six years and witnessed some pretty rough handling. None of that caused any damage, so I am not sure what they did to break one down the entire length."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Pleasant, courteous staff. Average room in economy. Less pressure and bustle at Dublin than bigger airports."
Cons: "We were told we would revive a seat at the bulkhead with a bassinet. We did not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and ultimately canceled. what a chaotic experience coming and going to Ireland. poor service and customer relation"
Cons: "Dodgy electronics, had to reset screen in headrest several times and never really worked. Sat 30 + mins in tarmac after landing waiting for a stand."
Pros: "You lost the suitcase I needed for the next 2 weeks of my last family vacation in Europe. When I called for an update after 2 days (the promised notification from you was not made) I was told it was found and would be brought by courier to my Airbnb. When I called again, I found out it had arrived in Frankfurt but I'd have to come back to the airport to retrieve it. I had to cancel some plans and inconvenience my family because of your inept handling of my personal property. Other people were in line at the service desk to report their luggage lost. I'm VERY upset. I will avoid Are Lingus and BA in the future. NO LEG ROOM! (Crying, wailing infants the whole 7 hour flight--not your fault, but no sleep for any of us unfortunate passengers)"
Cons: "Online check in was terrible. Takes 45 minutes to get a hold of a customer service representative"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and helpful. However, two members of our party (of five) lost their bags. It has been 5 days since our flight and while I am happy to say the bags have been "found", they still have not been returned to us. If all goes well, we should have the bags later today, but it's tough sledding to go for 6 days without any of your things."
Pros: "We got moved to Aer Lungus - I know same "group" but different. No big surprises that less comfortable than I expected with British Air."
Cons: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "Late flight made our connection at Dublin very nerve-racking. We had to almost run to get to our connecting flight."
Pros: "The best long flight in years. An amazingly nice and pleasant experience in a deeply irish identity company. Just Perfect"
Cons: "Our flights were changed numerous times."
Cons: "The airport is a joke ! People couldn't be more rude ! Trying to print boarding pass was beyond difficult the staff was unaccomidating and there were 4 screaming babies for 6 hours straight ! Also we tried to change the flight and couldn't unless we pay over $400 !!! We will NEVER fly with you again"
Pros: "The United has the option to stream on your device for this short leg. All you need is an app. It was very convenient. This is the future. Use your own device, headphones etc."
Pros: "Despite the three-hour delay and some frustrated passengers, the cabin crew stayed very calm and positive."
Cons: "The flight left about three hours late, which isn't really anyone's fault, but it would have been nice to be told more specifically what was going on (what the problem was, estimated time it will take, maybe ensure passengers that the airline is aware of all their connecting flights and are already placing them on new flights)"
Cons: "I don't like that if I get sick and have to go to a hospital and have to change travel dates, Aer Lingus has no policy to reimburse me for the flights I can't make. So I buy new tickets and lose the money on the old tickets. That is terrible customer service and makes other airlines more attractive."
Cons: "Aer Lingus lost my husband's baggage and 3 weeks later it has not been found. We had to buy all new clothes, inc a new suit for our wedding which is what we were traveling for."
Cons: "There were 150 people scheduled for this flight that only had 25 seats on it. All they could day was that it was either a glitch on the computer. Or a glitch when people bought tickets. Luckily I made it to Chicago on time, because I asked before everyone else found out. But you thought they would have told us way before the flight was scheduled to leave."
Pros: "Nothing. No luggage. No clothes, no toiletries. Vacation ruined."
Cons: "It was VERY cold on board -- even with the blanket, it was too cold to be able to sleep. Three blankets might have worked, with a wool hat. Perhaps it was because we were near the window -- but very cold indeed!"
