Pros: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Cons: "Squishy space and very late flight unfortunately"
Pros: "Everything! From check-in all the way to the landing of the plane I was really satisfied! There were a couple crew members that really made the flight feel so at-home/friendly that one could not help but just smile and relax in the flight. Awesome job crew on Flight VA69!"
Cons: "I wish my partner and his family were with my parents and I on the flight to enjoy the experience we had as well."
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "I liked the movies"
Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "Food was very good"
Cons: "Economy passengers kept coming onto business class as our crew member was absent to often and didn’t police it"
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "Food was delicious, consistent timely service and excellent entertainment options onboard. The flight was an hour early!"
Pros: "The seats of the economy class are a little bit bigger than the rest of the airlines and are so much confortable to sleep."
Cons: "The crew speaks to quick and the Australian accent is not always easy to understand"
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."
Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."
Pros: "Nothing really!"
Cons: "I was coming from Sydney and I have to hurry up to take the other fly to Newark and didn’t have time to buy for nothing to eat but I was very surprised they didn’t offer me anything on the plane and when I ask they I have buy it online and didn’t have many choices anyway, I very disappointed with this fly."
Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for a long jet ride. Helpful and considerate flight attendants."
Cons: "The strange windows that kept it looking like night out until 30 minutes before we landed. I prefer the natural light to help readjust my time zones."
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "Not flown with Delta in many years and impressed by the aircraft (A320), crew and customer service"
Cons: "Check-in was a bit of a hassle as kiosk would not accept our details but agent was able to resolve the problem"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "The speed of boarding, then the frequency of service. Cabin crew were very dedicated. All in all, a very smooth flight. Ps. my first Virgin was called Carole. ;)"
Cons: "The food left a lot to be desired, but apart from my flight on Emirates to Auckland, Airoplne food does tend to be somewhat......mmmm not sure what the word is, but room for improvement describes it."
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."
Pros: "courteous attendants"
Cons: "Aircraft amenities. Small 737 for a long international flight. Waiting for busses in both Bali and Sydney."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did a great job."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight."
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, and I felt that you appeared to have more leg room in economy than other airlines."
Pros: "The staff, the food , everything was good. We were in premium economy and were impressed ."
Cons: "I have trouble walking and the golf buggy never arrived to take me and another lady to the airoplane so we had to walk."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible"
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "Very good on board services and nice crew"
Cons: "At boarding in Atlanta, they only checked in 1 of my 3 luggages to my final destination, the 2 others are lost..."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome in premium economy"
Cons: "The plane was really dirty!!!!"
Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Pros: "Smooth experience overall, from check-in to baggage claim. Crew was very nice. Economy seats had a fair amount of space."
Cons: "No meal included on international flight."
Cons: "On both flights the crew was not very friendly of helpful. No good, Except a tiny bit for the kids on a second shorter flight. And we had to pay for Wi-Fi, 12 whole dollars! A real rip off. We’ll never do Iceland air again"
Pros: "It was quiet and nice not to be interrupt Ed by food service"
Cons: "Bathrooms on plane could have been better maintained"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "My video screen did not work well"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, more roomy plane than first flight from Toronto"
Pros: "Service was great!"
Cons: "It would be nice to have a few more food choices for the long flight"
Pros: "Larger plane with more room"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, no rows called; no one at the help desk."
Cons: "Overcrowded, no leg room and staff unwilling to help move two travelers near each other. Did not appreciate the rough demeanor and having to flag down attendants for water when they skipped over our aisle. Would avoid this airline in the future if possible."
Pros: "3 hours late, no electronic notification. Figured it out on my own, then missed my connection to Oslo. Got transferred to SAS for the last part to Oslo, without checked bag. Arrived in Oslo 16:30 Oct 9, now 18:42 Oct 10 still no luggage, no help, no cooperation, no compensation, no vacation. You can’t leave to go anywhere else, if you have to be somewhere to receive the luggage, even if you go buy new clothes."
Cons: "It sucks to have your vacation ruined by lack of ability to deliver my luggage 35 kilometers from the airport. terrible customer service from Icelandair, SAS, and Gardemoen Airport. All fingers pointing other directions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours due to an unexplained "maintenance issue." A friend of mine who had paid extra to get an exit row with extra leg room was inexplicably moved to a normal seat, and was only upgraded when she complained. I was moved from a window seat to an exit row without explanation, unfortunately, this was an exit row where a life raft was attached to the door, leaving me even less leg room than a normal seat would have."
Pros: "All the Icelandair staff from Seattle to Frankfurt represent their airline well, thank you! Stop having Kayak sell your tickets"
Cons: "All the extra charges for anything other Seat on the plane. I don't blame Icelandair for this, I blame Kayak for it. Kayak really suck at informing customers about the services offered by Icelandair, I would have bought a better ticket if I was given all the info to make a informed decision"
Cons: "It was a very uncomfortable flight as there was a box under the seat in front of seat 26E so I could not get comfortable and I’m only 5’7”. As it’s in the middle of the plane they we were the last row to be served"
Pros: "We had exit row seats that had more room in the front."
Cons: "1) While there is more room in the front, there is less room in the width because the trays are built into the armrests instead of in the seat in the front. Because of that, the armrests take more space below and remain static, while the normal armrests can be lifted up and have nothing below the armrest. 2) The text describing the "deal" for the exit row, which costs more, said that the seats have limited recline compared to normal seats. The fact is that the window seat did not recline at all. The button stayed pushed in all the way and the seat would not move at all. We do not know whether it was broken or intentionally disabled. 3) The attendant's approach was somewhat dismissive at first, but on the good side, she quickly rectified and came through with offers and a more understanding attitude, she was nice. 4) We brought this up to the flight attendants' attention, but the best they could do was to give us 1 free headset and any food we wanted. This was not much since we did not want the food. A refund for that extra payment for that seat would have been a better move. 5) The middle seat (it's a row of 3), has a metal box hanging from the front seat, taking a bit more than half the width of the space, so you can only put your feet under the right side of the front seat. 6) I don't think we'll do exit rows again on Icelandair. We did it before on other airlines with good results. 7) Not sure how the prices compare per mile with other airlines really, but on Icelandair, if you get the "Economy Standard", you really don't get much, no peanuts or snacks, no food, only soft drinks, no video games, only movies and music, and you have to bring your own headset or buy one, along with that the better classes of service run out quickly (I booked maybe 6 months ahead) and are rather spendy in comparison with standard."
Pros: "Departure from Reykjavik was delayed by about 15 minutes. The flught was not full so I had a spare seat next to mine to stretch s bit"
Cons: "More communication on delays would rsse strees on passengers"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating!"
Cons: "You had to purchase food for the 7 hour flight I had from Seattle to Reykjavík. I was hoping for a complimentary meal since it was a long flight."
Cons: "Iceland Air did not pick up our baggage from the transfer area in Seattle. Ultimately spent three days in Paris without our luggage. Poor communication from Iceland Air regarding the whereabouts of our baggage. Bad experience!!!"
Cons: "We were an hour late with no update Food service took a long time No water given out at check in People in front put their seats back the entire ride and swished is. Should be a rule to keep seats upright"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was very impressive. Very good customer service after our bags were delayed by the plane sliding off the runway. They were super accommodating of my travel plans and delivered my bags to me three hours away from the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants were extremely rude. They also were very conflicting with their directions for the exit row seats. One attendant would situate you and your belongings and then the next would come and make you move everything and this happened more than once before taking off. The attendants were also giving away seats that people had tickets for and forcing a lot of people to move seats more than once. They also would not take trash more than the one time about an hour after the drinks service, so slow drinkers were forced to keep all their trash for the entire flight and ending up leaving it in the seats because no one is going to take their trash off the plane with them when they had asked the flight attendants to take it during the flight and were refused. Also for a 7 hour flight, at least offering pretzels would be polite. The plane slid off the runway upon arrival and then we had to wait 2 hours for a ground crew to come with stairs and a bus to unload us. Communication to the customers was extremely poor during this time, we had almost no idea what was happening, and with where our bags were, we waited in the airport for an hour before they announced that they wouldn’t be unloading our bags for another few hours."
Cons: "This was horrible. I purchased a ticket on Iceland Air leaving Seaattle at 410pm. However when I went to check in I had been bumped to an earlier flight on Delta!! I can’t believe a person buys a ticket on one airline and it gets changed. How does this happen?"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"
Cons: "The airline charged me $95 to check a single bag after refusing to honor the fee I paid to a third party when I booked the flight. Avoid Icelandair and Justfly."
Pros: "Flight crew, movies,plane"
Cons: "I bought tickets in march for a sept flight and was assigned seats with the bathroom wall behind me so I had limited reclining. Seems with such an adavance purchase I could have better seat assignments are at least been forewarned that I was assigned seats that had limitations."
Pros: "I was transferred to a direct British Airways flight to Heathrow that arrived in a time-frame that was close to when I would have arrived there on the Icelandair service. The transfer (including check-in luggage) was completed rapidly with minimal inconvenience which was appreciated"
Cons: "The scheduled Icelandair flight was cancelled at late notice because the aircraft was unavailable. I defective part could not be delivered and fitted in time for the aircraft to be available at Sea-Tac airport."
Pros: "The flight went exactly to plan. The cabin crew was very friendly and the seats were comfortable. I like the transfer in Iceland, because it allows you to stretch your legs on the long haul from the West Coast to Europe, and generally only adds about an hour to the total flight time."
Pros: "I'm a European tour and booked a flight from Reykjavik to Amsterdam, I received an email to make an offer to upgrade and I quickly jumped at the chance. I received an email 2 days prior to departure that my offer was excepted and I would be upgraded to economy comfort. Economy comfort is between First Classe and economy and the cool thing about it is that you get treated as if he had a first class ticket. I had access to the lounge which was amazing, the spread out was wonderful he sat in the choices plentiful. Reykjavik is a small airport therefore it's a busy airport, what do you economy comfort I was able to use the saga class lane and I checked in less than five minutes whereas the regular lane was backed up. I was able to board along with first-class passengers and the lane was short which I love. Overall it was a great experience and Icelandair will make you a trip even better if you fly with them first class or economy comfort. I highly recommend them and I am definitely flying with them again."
Cons: "The breakfast menu was limited but since I had the economy comfort upgrade,it was free so I can't really complain since I had the economy comfort upgrade."
Pros: "Boarded so quickly! Very efficient. Checked baggage also arrived quickly at final destination."
Cons: "A little unclear on both legs which Icelandair was boarding because they didn't change the sign at the gate and had another flight directly prior. "Last call for IcelandAir" - confusing messaging. Same thing at second location - started boarding but sign didn't change so if you arrived after they made the call you couldn't tell which flight without asking reception."
Cons: "Long layover in Iceland, and refusal to work with me on scheduling. They would not give refund for ticket or offer to help me change the flight date. Very rude customer service."
Pros: "The flight went very well, and a little faster than what I'm used to on other airlines."
Cons: "Meals and/or more meal options but I also understand you sacrifice this comfort given the discounted prices for flights."
Cons: "In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. The airline was a not efficient and caused me to sit in two different airports for over 16 hours and cost me to miss a day of vacation and extra expenses to accomidate them. 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"
Cons: "No food is served for economy level and the food available to purchase was very limited and expensive Also entertainment had mostly old movies and being your own headphones or pay for one"
Pros: "Seat is comfortable , nice blanket"
Cons: "Super old movie, no food include"
Cons: "Bad entertainment, almost no new movies. No meal or drinks on international flight, food for purchased was not as advertised."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating, new flight was booked immediately after being cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, missing our 10+ layover in Iceland and trip to the blue lagoon. We missed arriving to Amsterdam for our friends birthday and ended up getting there the next day. The most dissappointing and quite frankly ridiculous part was that after being on hold for 2 hours Iceland air refused to upgrade our seats to first class after such a huge inconvenience. We boarded the plane and the entire first class portion of the flight empty!! This makes zero sense to me. Iceland air should seriously reconsider their upgrade policies. They would rather have first class be empty than make their customers happy! We were even willing to pay extra."
Pros: "The blankets were nice and long."
Cons: "I called in several days in advance to reserve a seat next to my brother. When I got to the airport they said that I didn't even have a seat. The airline stewardess kept running into me without acknowledging that she did, even though I wasn't in the aisle. This happened three or four times. I tried to ask her to stop and she didn't seem to hear me. The sound for my seat's audio entertainment system didn't work. It didn't work for my brother who was sitting next to me. They did not serve complimentary snacks or a meal for a 7.5 hour flight that started at 4:30pm."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, and a very smooth ride. They had a lot of movies for in flight entertainment as well- I recommend the Iceland air documentaries!"
Cons: "No free in flight food, however there were lovely options to purchase!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "There was no way to reserve seats for the flight. I made our reservations eight months in advance and there was no way via kayak or Icelandair to choose seats. When we tried calling the airline, they told us we needed to call back 36 hours before the flight. When we called 36 hours before the flight they told us all of the seats were alr day taken and we needed to speak to the agent when we checked in. When we were given seat assignments at checkin and asked why we'd had no input into the seat selection, they said we should have called in advance. It was really frustrating, especially because we ended up in th back of the plane. I was in a middle seat, winch don't have any space for a bag under the seats in front of them. Then there were no meals served on the overnight flight. I bought a small salad for 12 euros. I have never in my life taken an overnight flight where they don't serve at least dinner, if not both dinner and breakfast. The flight was on time and the attendants were friendly, but I wasn't terribly impressed otherwise."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Could not select seats when booking 3 months out. Could only do this 24hr in advance. No app to checking/select seats. Had to be on computer. 7 hours and no food for free? Had to buy a $9 roll with some ham and cheese slapped on. Only came by with drink/water 2 times in 7 hours."
Cons: "We didn't actually make the flight due to a fiasco with our shuttle company. We called the third-party company to assist with changing flights and, after 40 minutes on hold, JustFly.com said there was nothing they could do and that we needed to contact IcelandAir. After another 60 minutes on hold IcelandAir said there was nothing they could do except rebook us on a new ticket. $2000 later we finally got to go on our honeymoon. Long story short we had to buy all new tickets. JustFly.com only refunded $200 of our original ticket cost after assessing numerous cancellation fees (over $700 in cancel fees). We won't be booming JustFly again. Happy Honeymoon to us, once we finally got there."
Pros: "The plane was new which meant new entertainment system and seats."
Cons: "It took over 30 minutes for our luggage to arrive on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "Overall this was a good flight! I'd recommend Iceland Air for budget flying and just bring a few snacks."
Cons: "I'd honestly rather there be no food than gross airplane food so no real complaints. I appreciate the price!"
Pros: "I enjoyhed the entertainment on the flight. Great movies and tv selections."
Cons: "It was the first international flight I've ever been on where no meals were included in the price, so it was a disappointment that we were not given any complimentary meals or snacks, especially for such a long flight through dinner time."
Pros: "Mostly on time"
Cons: "No food or drink amenities"
Pros: "Nice and quiet flight."
Cons: "Menu is limited for vegetarian options, but the flight attendant was great at helping to find options."
Pros: "They gave a complimentary meal to my child immediately after take-off."
Cons: "Lost my luggage-- no customer service to recover my luggage. No reimbursement for days without luggage. The flight was insanely hot. It was simply not worth saving a hundred or two hundred bucks to fly this airline and I've never felt that way about a flight."
Cons: "Our suitcases got lost and there was an hour and a half delay on this flight"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Cons: "Short lay over. 1 hour. Bag did not make it. Poor entertainment system. No current films. Audio poor. Airport in Iceland has awkward arrival with long lines up one staircase to passport control."
Pros: "The price is right, free bags, on time."
Cons: "No free food and purchased is so"
Pros: "For economy class the leg room was actually decent."
Cons: "On every other international flight I have flown on meals and drinks are included. Kind of ridiculous you paid for these things individually on the flight b"
Pros: "I like the price and the opportunity to do a stop over in Iceland. Generally crew was nice going into the plane and leaving the plane."
Cons: "Plane was outdated and older with USB ports not working. The crew had forgotten about drinks I asked for several times. I was disappointed that the fight didn't offer free booze and food like other airlines. The crew made me feel like I was bothering them. The crew and passengers were inconsiderate and would constantly slam my arm while walking in the isle way. It was annoying from passengers, but unbelievable from the crew. I got no sleep and it was infuriating. Worse flights I have experienced, may have been better if I had a window seat."
Pros: "I liked the fact that there were options on the entertainment that were from Iceland - not just the usual American things. All crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There was not time to get to my connecting flight in Iceland without running and asking repeatedly to go to the front of the passport line - it was awkward and stressful. I was ASSURED over the phone that there would be plenty of time - I almost didn't make it."
Pros: "Thanks to COVID, minimal service"
Cons: "A cup of tea about $7.00. Can it be better. Certainly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed once we had boarded, so we had to sit at the gate for about 2 hours, which was not the crew's fault of course, however, they could have offered drinks. Once we finally got in the air, they only offered purchasable snacks in a way that was confusing--and did not even come through the cabin with complimentary drinks. Given the circumstances, and the fact the time in our seats was extended by over two hours, there could have been some better service from the actual flight attendants. It should have been clearly stated at the beginning of the flight, and once more when we were in the air, that no complimentary drinks were going to be handed out, and if we wanted anything, we would need to purchase it. I wouldn't have minded purchasing if I had known that was my only option."
Cons: "No USB charging point working and I had purchased on board wifi"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not helpful or attentive. A nine plus hour flight and they offered drinks once, picked up garbage once and when we tried to give them garbage before landing, told us to put it in the seat pocket or toss on the floor! It looked like the plane had been trashed when we exited"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to late arrival of aeroplane."
Pros: "Out of my four flights with Aer LIngus, this leg of my trip that both left and arrived on time. It is sad, that when landing they had to say thank you for flying another on time Aer LIngus flight. Makes me wonder how often are you not on time? My experience says 75% of the time your late."
Cons: "First off, don't try charging me 150 euros to check my bags when I already paid for it at booking. Then who charges for 2,50 for a can soda on an air plane? Lastly, I'm 6'4" and the seats were so close there was no way to sit without my knees pressed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a free drink and snack on the short flight. We would have taken some with us on the plane if we would have known that we had to pay for everything. Just something we have never experienced on any international trip before"
Cons: "The airline charged for luggage at airport check in."
Cons: "Aer lingus uses double prong headphones which dates the whole experience earphones are uncomfortable and volume is bad. You have to pay for booze in economy for international flight, seats aren’t that comfortable but the selection of movies and tv is good. I will probably look elsewhere next time"
Pros: "Hostess were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat in first row and my bag half way down the plane so although I could’ve been first off I was in actual effect the very last."
Pros: "Great equipment. Decent entertainment, sparsely filled cabin. Seat change to isle request before boarding readily made with no fuss. I noticed that passengers could actually make out pa announcements both at PDX and in flight. Doesn’t bother me anymore when I can’t but can be very concerning to anyone who rarely flies. Never understood going to the trouble of making announcements both pre-boarding & on-board pre-flight, that no one can even make out. That was not an issue here."
Cons: "Better lumbar support is always appreciated, adjustable lumbar would be very nice and could make or break an entire flight. No seat on any flight should ever be even the slightest ill repaired. Again, this equipmemt all seemed great. Lastly, since I prefer to always have a water, coke or coffe and or snack in front of me during entire flight, a bit of self serve (grab a water, coffee or snack yourself without having to make staff work a simple task would be nice on every flight. The flight from SEA-DUB was basically great and equipment is always of the utmost importantance."
Cons: "Dublin airport No suitcase when we arrived No food. No inflight entertainment"
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."
Cons: "No TV on board and you had to pay for a glass of water"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 6 hours due to a mechanical problem. For 6 hours the passengers were told little or nothing & were eventually given a voucher for $10 to redeem on plane. Mechanical problems can of course occur,but how the airline,Aer Lingus,dealt with this was appalling."
Pros: "Like that we can check a bag and get free meal in economy on transatlantic flights. Good staff and nice plane."
Cons: "Add water coffee tea gratis on short haul inter-Europe flights."
Cons: "my seat wouldn't stay up, kept sliding back seat27a."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Spacey seats and plenty of bathrooms."
Cons: "The food wasn't great and I wish they would have picked up the dinner trays way sooner"
Pros: "NO SECURITY CHECK FOR INBOUND FLIGHTS. What a relief!"
Cons: "Cramped rickety stairs, up & down to Passport control. In flight service non-existent. Tepid coffee at absurd $4.50!"
Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "After attempting to check in at the baggage machine, we were told we had to go through the check in line. Then after waiting 60 minutes in line at the Aer Lingus counter we were told we were 15 minutes past the boarding closing time. So even though we were still an hour before our flight we couldn't get a boarding pass to get on the plane. We then had to pay $150 x 3 to get on the same flight the next day. We will never fly Aer Lingus again and will never fly through Dublin again."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly"
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee and soda is something I would expect from a budget airline and not a major carrier"
Pros: "Plane was half full."
Cons: "Food was terrible, and if you’re white and your significant other is black you may have to request things for her because she won’t get them even when she asks"
Pros: "Food was excellent and drinks came along frequently"
Cons: "Staff wasn't rude but not friendly."
Pros: "The leg room was smaller some of the other airlines. The seat was so uncomfortable to sit on for the flight."
Cons: "Airplane was late 90 mins"
Pros: "Friendly and practical no complaints"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful."
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to a storm at AMS. Then delayed further in AMS waiting for a gate. Not the airlines fault though. They are one of the few major European airlines that don't serve free food."
Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hrs - missed connection, small seats/aisles."
Cons: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "Excellent service and courteous staff"
Cons: "I didn't like they charge for all drinks including water on a 2hour flight"
Cons: "this flight was unnecessarily delayed. it was possible to have an earlier connection"
Pros: "Service on biz class."
Cons: "Too many boarding / customs lines in Dublin. They dumped all of my toiletries that I had carried across Europe."
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed new enough. The flight crew were all pleasant."
Cons: "Leg room is atrocious. Food is sub par even fornairline food. The drink cart should be brought around more than once. My entertainment centre was off or in disrepair for large portions Of the flight, and the plug on tomcharge the phone was not only in a difficult place down. Wtween seats but was not functioning. I paid for an internet connection I couldn't use be aide of a dead phone."
Pros: "Baggage claim assistant Peter in Dublin was very helpful"
Cons: "I asked the person checking and tagging the bags in Budapest to make sure they came off in Dublin for 24 ht overnight layover - I told him twice and he nodded agreement and then tagged them WRONG!!!!"
Cons: "I made my reservations for British Airways and the flight was by Aer Lingus."
Pros: "The cabin was quite comfortable and we had all we needed from the get go, ear plug, TV, blanket, and pillow. We had good seating as there were only 2 seats on each wing. Even tough we couldn't reserve our seats, these were good."
Cons: "Why do those long distance air hostesses treat us as if we were a nuisance? Not a smile, rude; they had decided that those going to the US had to be bad people. Are they that political or just bad mannered????"
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Pros: "Speed of boarding from both the gate crew and the cabin staff. At that hour of the morning the last thing you want is hassle when boarding."
Cons: "It's a very very early morning flight."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 40 mins because Aer Lingus was unable to meet departure time and Air Traffic Control couldn't fit them into the departing flights rotation outside of their originally scheduled time. As a result, the airplane was stuck at the gate for 30 minutes. The rest we spent taxiing to what seemes the furthest end of the airport. The airplane hadn't been cleaned in a while as was evident by extremely sticky and smelly tray tables in our row."
Cons: "Aer Lingus personnel were incompetent and inefficient. Most were more interested in chatting with coworkers than actually assisting customers. Seats had not been assigned despite my previous assurance from EA customer service folks, and special meal requests for my wife and child had not been added to our booking record. Calling Aer Lingus almost always requires you to hold 30 minutes before anyone answers. Again, I suspect they are just as disinterested in helping customers as the ground personnel."
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable in coach and the blanket and pillow help."
Cons: "Aer Lingus is definitely a budget carrier and alcoholic beverages are not complementary in coach. Not a big problem, but it is a downside to the overall experience. Definitely not the level of service I expect on BA and not as good as on the AA flight to Glasgow."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to Business class that we submitted a bid for -- it was the difference between heaven and the usual too small, too squashed intercontinental experience. The whole experience post-upgrade was top notch, from the service to the food. Thanks, Are Lingus!"
Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I had to put on lots of layers of clothes and I was still cold."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. I was seated quickly and the flight took off on time. No complaints."
Service missing, for horrible and small portions
Pros: "Comfortable seats, new plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food needs to improve. Pasta versus pasta is not a choice."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Internet connection."
Pros: "Everything was fairly mediocre..."
Cons: "They lost my ski bag! I had PLENTY of time between connecting flights and to not have my ski bag show up at my final destination (Munich - which was also a British Airways flight) was pretty bad. This set me back 4 hours after I've already been traveling for 20 hours! BOOO"
Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"
Pros: "Boarding the plane was fast and easy, crew was fantastic on and off the plane."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for the tickets to pick our seats in advance."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "Food was good. Intertainment options good."
Cons: "My seat did not recline so I had trouble trying to sleep thru the night flight. Seats too cramped even after updgrading."
Pros: "Comfy seats, pleasent crew, good selection of movies and we got there on time. Bathroom was clean."
Cons: "Food was a little gummy and breakfast was a biscuit and a cream cheese filled pretzel"
Pros: "American Airlines is kicking your guy's butts when it comes to comfort."
Cons: "Tiny seat for international flights is nearly inhuman! I became an overnight contortionist sensation whether I liked it or not."
Pros: "Staff were lovely."
Cons: "Old plane with an ancient entertainment system, generally cramped and uncomfortable. Paid for a specific seat but was given a different one."
Pros: "The plane was newly refurbished. Entertainment was excellent. Seat room, or course, is an issue and comfort was a little above average for economy, but the operation was well-run, the food was descent, and entertainment was solid."
Cons: "The screens on the seatbacks could use shielding from oblique angles. If the people in front of you decide to binge-watch movies late into the night, it can interfere with sleep."
Pros: "The movie selection was wonderful, as the amount of time with dim lightening"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane. It was too cold for summer clothing"
Pros: "Food was good. Decent movie choices"
Cons: "Plane was older and in poor repair. Our air vents and over head lights had been completely removed for our row - so we could not read or knit as others could. Seats are far to small and close together to allow for any real rest or sleep."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "Food left a little to be desired."
Pros: "Friendly people-excellent ammenitties-great flight. A new & improved airline from prior experiences."
Cons: "Nothing-all was great."
Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"
Pros: "Service was excellent, and the 777 flight was very comfortable. The flight attendants were remarkable. The ticket agents had difficulty rebooking the London to Milan leg of my flight when that flight was cancelled while I was on the way to the airport, but they were somehow able to get me onto an earlier flight than was originally offered. What I gathered was that the computer was not very cooperative. The ticket agents were incredibly helpful during this process."
Cons: "I lost my original exit row seat somehow and had to inquire into it. I think what happened was that while the ticket agents were able to rebook my cancelled London to Milan flight, my seat reservation on the Seattle to London leg got lost somehow. I suppose another passenger may have grabbed my seat during that rebooking process. I noticed the changed seat assignment only after I left the ticketing counter. I was able to get a different exit row seat (but with less leg room) assigned to me by inquiring with the agent at the gate."
Pros: "We liked that the food and drinks were included. The timing of food and lights going off and on were perfect."
Cons: "The take off was a little shaky but it was our first time on this size of plane, so that might be normal."
Pros: "Crew on flight friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Could never find anyone and at check in counter and gates. For this reason will never fly British Airways if possible."
Pros: "Eats are comfortable"
Cons: "We were on the ground for three hours before we could take off. I ended up missing my flight from London to Madrid and my luggage got lost for a day because they switched my flight."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Delayed due to inclement weather for 4 hours then lost the baggage"
Pros: "Flight crew was professional and kind! Food and drinks were free on the airbus. Roomy enough to sleep and got pillow, blanket, and free entertainment!"
Pros: "Everything was awesome! The food, the seat, the flight. My best cross-Atlantic flight ever!"
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, it was very difficult for me to do all rearrangements."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all very nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "I'm told (late) that BA does not subscribe to TSA prep in the USA. That meant going to the TSA line first, being rejected, going back to check-in to know the reason, then back to the standard long line. Once onboard my seat's entertainment system dies not work. 3 reset attempted with no luck. A month ago, on another long haul flight the same happened. Food was very bad. Salmon so overdone that it was hard to cut, overcooked vegetables and some lukewarm mash potatoes."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board, because I was told I needed a Turkish Visa, even to change planes, and may have lost my ticket payment."
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, good food and great movie selection. All flights on time!"
Cons: "Very crowded - seats are so close. I’m 5 feet 8 inches and normal weight and was squished!"
Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"
Pros: "Once the flight was boarding/ boarded it was seamless. The crew were more than happy to meet or exceed your needs with snacks/ meals, blankets and even drinks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1hr and 50min and the supervisor was less than accommodating even after my wife and I had told her we had 2more connecting flights this was going to affect. Due to the delay, we spent an additional $211 on flights and spent the night at the airport."
Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight on a 747 Staff looked very smart and were efficient"
Cons: "Check in queue, queue at gate, seat was not clean, food poor The World's favourite airline is becoming impersonal"
Pros: "more comfortable than the flight from Seattle - more leg room and larger seats."
Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was not tasty, leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable,"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left late, making my connection very tight and my baggage didn't arrive with me. Very inconvenient"
Pros: "Great in flight entertainment and dinner!"
Cons: "No Wifi; not great for business travel"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, entertainment & flight info on monitor."
Cons: "Economy seating. Quite cramped.. I would make sure to book at least Premium Economy in the future."
Cons: "Food was unappetizing and down to one choice by the time it got to us in Premium Economy. nothing premium about it."
Cons: "Massively cramped seating. BA needs to work out if it is the national carrier or a budget airline. The seat back of the passenger in front, when reclined, basically trapped me in my seat and made the entertainment screen very hard to see.The crew were efficient but quite rude to the passenger next to me when she hesitated over a meal choice. I will go quite a long way out of my way to avoid traveling on BA in the future, based on this experience."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work. Crew tried to get it working with no success."
Pros: "Seattle to London was wonderful in all aspects great service comfort and amenities."
Pros: "Spacious seating."
Pros: "Got me back to the UK"
Cons: "Lack of storage around seat Lack of privacy Felt like a patient on a trolley Heavy handed portion control Club larder stocked with leftovers Poor quality tableware, that was chipped"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "London/Heathrow arrivals had us going to gate A and through all the security and then we found after going through the security check (1 hr) we saw that the gate for Flight to Venice was B gates. We are not young people, but we aren't ignorant of travel. There was a lot of running around on our part with a lot of undue stress, when we didn't have to leave the E gates at all. There were no gate assignments posted when we landed until 30 minutes out while we were running back to E gates. There is no excuse for that, except we didn't know til the last minute where we were supposed to go after asking 2 people. Why the second check for security after the states on connecting flights? Is this new?"
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional, despite plane being absolutely packed."
Cons: "Food was really horrendous. Better off sticking with basics like frit, cheese, crackers, sandwiches, etc. If I pay extra for early seat selection, don't guilt me into switching with someone who didnt, because they didnt have enough leg room and had a bad leg. Situation was such that I couldnt refuse. So ended up paying extra for a really crappy seat. Seating chart should indicate where the metal boxes are that affect leg room in certain seats so those with a disability aren't seated there."
Cons: "After a three hour delay- the flight was canceled. Was able to rebook flight for next day but took eight calls to find a room for the night. It was a bit of a nightmare. Had pre paid for up graded seat but one was not available on the re-booked flight."
Pros: "We got to our destination eventually"
Cons: "Lack of communication. No explanations. Feelings of confusion and abandonment."
Pros: "Was a quick flight from city airport. Bags out really quick in Rotterdam"
Cons: "Delayed by 40 mins. Long time to check in. Now water in the toilet on the plane."
Pros: "Crew and choice of movies were excellent"
Cons: "Loading sucked. They couldn't keep those that are not boarding yet out of the way for those in the back of the plane to board first. Made one comment to the crowd and then gave up."
