Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fares were competitive. Service excellent. Seating comfortable"
Cons: "Food on the plane"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence which the crew could not do much about. Apart from that a good experience"
Cons: "I went to the restroom in the back, and one of the flight attendants was sitting in her jump seat, with head phone on and appeared to be sleeping or resting with eyes closed. Her sprawling legs were blocking the aisle, therefore I could not get to the restroom on the other aisle that was the only one open at that time This is unacceptable. Also PA is way too loud."
Pros: "Food considerably better than BOS- DUB route."
Cons: "Even though all correspondence told me I could check in 24 hours ahead and choose a seat, after repeatedly trying, I gave up. I even called and was told I could do it, but I couldn’t. Because of that, I got a crappy seat. Another man and I stood outside of a bathroom for 15 minutes waiting for someone to come out, and we finally discovered that a flight attendant had locked it from the outside because of turbulence and forgot to open it. My checked bag was tagged with the priority sticker. I had a tight connection to catch a bus once I got to Boston. My bag came out of the carousel exactly 15 minutes after the first bag came out. That’s priority???"
Cons: "Before we boarded this plane we arrived at Aer Lingus for a 2 hour layover. The airport only had a snack bar open and an express bar with only drinks. There was cafes upstairs but that was closed off to hundreds of people with a layover between flights. When asked they said it was closed off by escalater and elevator to all of us. They blocked the escalator with a giant gate sign. People waited in line at a snack for over 20 mins for a bite to eat that was express food or a choice of 5 sandwiches that came hot that actually sucked not worth the money at all. People were pissed! I was looking forward to a nice meal for my layover but that definitely did not happen! They only came around once with drinks on a 6 hour flight, then twice for coffe and tea. When I asked for a sprite they said they ran out of things completely"
Pros: "We paid extra for the seats ... it's a good value to get on and off more easily. I liked the way they gave food (for free) and beverage every couple of hours. The pilot communicated well."
Cons: "The entertainment was not that great -- I had trouble filling the time of our overseas flight with movies; which I like to do going east to west to keep up with the time differential. The bathrooms ran out of water in the toilet about 2 hours before we landed so I didn't want to use it. Again, it was an old plane."
Cons: "Delayed for 8 hrs. Had to go through passport control twice. Horrible service"
Cons: "In approaching an attendant to purchase a beverage we were abruptly informed that they were on a break and go to the forward cabin."
Pros: "US preclearance in Dublin No immigration wait in Boston"
Cons: "Coffee was terrible Sound in the headset was hard to hear. Seat had to be manually pulled to vertical My ear buds would not fit the 2-hole system on this plane"
Cons: "the plane was late"
Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment selection was also good."
Cons: "BUT. Entertainment got suspended a few times it was very annoying. Flight attendants passed right by us and almost forgot us"
Pros: "Direct flight and preclearance completed in Dublin"
Cons: "Not a great seat, back middle; poor food"
Pros: "Boarding was good....overhead room for carry-ons probably due to a less than full flight. The entertainment was varied, current movies, and wide selection of music. The crew was as efficient as possible and accommodating. However, we all have learned not to expect much."
Cons: "Comfort is lacking as is the case with jammed seating on all planes these days. It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, but since I resent it being done to me, I do not do it either out of respect for the passenger behind me."
Pros: "Food provided. Enough overhead bin space for bags. Newish plane. On demand entertainment screen."
Cons: "Couldn’t change seat at checkin so couldn’t sit next to husband on a separate reservation. Not many new movies."
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "the same"
Pros: "The meal was great"
Cons: "Paying for the drinks"
Pros: "Everyone very helpful"
Cons: "Baggage took 38 min. To come out"
Cons: "The map feature wasn't working on the flight and the sound quality for media was very poor and sporadic"
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "We had an adequate amount of room and were treated as valued customers. Enough said!"
Pros: "Much better than the Rome-Dublin leg. A modern plane with entertainment. A boarding process with effective signage and flowing lines. An absolutely top-rate cabin crew. Actually enjoyable food."
Cons: "Really was well done: systems seem to be functioning smoothly and feedback processes are working. One thing I did note was that the waste seemed to be collected without sorting for recycling. Considering you all are on the Emerald (green) Isle, you could take up the mantle of being the "most ecological" airline in the world. It would only take a small amount of messaging."
Cons: "Waiting in the que was very disorganized and took up the entire hallway. I didn't like running through the airport since the gate closed 5 minutes before I got off the plane from London even though the flight was almost 2 hours later."
Pros: "Nice, new clean aircraft, excellent meal service, very very friendly crew, top notch the minute we got on plane"
Cons: "Two major problems, when we went to check in, we stood in line and were very rudely told by some German British Airways attendent that we couldn't check in with them and that we needed to go to Aer Lingus, this even though our reservations were through British Airways. Second, despite my efforts over a few months to make seat reservations, my daughter and i were separated. Aer Lingus reps in rome fixed that and I was very, very grateful for that, but when we got to the Dublin/Boston leg of our flight, they couldn't or wouldn 't fix the seating issue. On board the plane though, the flight attendents arranged for my daughter and I to sit together. Really upset me that I didn't know until the very last minute, on the plane, whether I was going to be able to sit next to my child."
Pros: "Our experience is a bit atypical; we were upgraded to first class. So, everything was incredibly wonderful. Thank you for that unexpected treat! We might be spoiled for life..."
Cons: "unable to contact Aer Lingus with question dealing with clearing customs once we land in the U. S. we were on hold for over an hour"
Pros: "Great airlines!!"
Cons: "No gluten free options"
Pros: "Got in to Boston ahead of schedule, safe and sound"
Cons: "Unable to check in on line 24 hours before the flight . Unable to hear sound on any of the 3 movies I tried."
Cons: "The crew looked completely unhappy. There was only one crew member smiling. The flight was delayed by about an hour due to food. I feel if we are paying for a flight that is 7+ hours the crew should at the very least fake a smile."
Pros: "Lovely fight attendants and good food!"
Cons: "Seats are too small -- and I am not a big person, only 5'5" and 125 lbs. But too hard to sleep or stay in that tiny space for 6 hours."
Pros: "Well fed"
Cons: "Plane not clean. Movie screen did not work."
Pros: "The stewards were very hospitable."
Cons: "a gluten free meal option."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat by door very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very accommodating and helpful. Food was much better than the flight over from Boston. The in flight entertainments worked. Didn't on the way over from Boston. Thank you for that."
Pros: "on-time departure Smooth boarding Staff professional"
Cons: "could not select seat on-line <24 hrs before. Got to airport 2 hrs before departure and unable to pick seat beside my wife."
Pros: "More water"
Cons: "See above. No leg room, cramped"
Pros: "smooth landing in the snow storm"
Cons: "better movies and wifi"
Pros: "Airline cancelled flight at last minute No explanation Stranded us at a subpar hotel for 3 days We got sick there Had to cut short our vacation and return prematurely to the US"
Cons: "Everything See above"
Cons: "even smaller seats, more cramped than the previous flight and even more children crying"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to refueling?? Sorry why was this not done prior to boarding? Sat for almost an hour on the plane before take off - terrible."
Pros: "We arrived safely with good care. Smooth flight. Nothing else matters really."
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Monitors for flight data and movies kept freezing up. Questions about seating were not answered correctly when getting boarding passes. Asking for donations for UNICEF on board. Paying for alcohol drinks, usually international flights you don't. Food was really bad. Pre declaration went on forever and couldn't get a gate number. The list could go on and on. We travel a lot, first and last time with this company. Oh and TSA people had an attitude problem. Never experienced this before."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Free wifi card but it was too slow to stream"
Cons: "Broken screens"
Cons: "We landed at Logan early, but then had to wait for a gate. We still arrived at the gate a little ahead of schedule."
