My family and I will NEVER TRAVEL WITH AER LINGUS AGAIN....the worst airline in the world"

Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work for me"

Pros: "Quick organized boarding, friendly staff, much better flight than I expected. Food was even pretty good...Customs in Shannon was MUCH easier than Heathrow would have been, so thankfully, I went through customs in Shannon."
Cons: "Person in front kept seat reclined the entire time. Grrrrr"
Pros: "Checked in online. Got boarding pass. Dropped bag at Aer Lingus desk. All easy. Very cordial and helpful staff."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable plane. I’m small so usually I have some room to move in my seat. Not on this plane. Most uncomfortable ride ever. Once seat in front of me was back I could not retrieve anything stowed under my seat. No room to bend. Awful. Also plane seemed worn. The magazine rack in front of my seat was brokenness one side and kept falling forward on my knees. Had hoped to sleep during this redeye; not a chance."

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and considerate."
Cons: "Breakfast was disappointing, I would prefer something savoury. As another passenger commented ... "It was not worth being woken up for a muffin and juice." The entertainment was excellent, however the screen lit up repeatedly for announcements about an offer of connectivity while we were all trying to sleep. Those who had wished to avail of it had probably done so long before. It was quite annoying and intrusive."

Pros: "Very comfortable Transfer in Dublin very easy Everyone very helpful"
Cons: "Plane was dirty - petri dish mold on window blind No choice of food seats uncomfortable for 6 + hours"
Cons: "I was not permitted to check in online through any website (BA, Are Lingus etc.) then I was not permitted to self-check in at a kiosk. By the time I was able to check in all that was left was a middle seat. I asked about upgrades and was told I would need to pay full price for one of those tickets. The seats are veryyy cramped, the entertainment system was outdated, the food was gross and wine was expensive."

Was under the impression i was paying for a British airline flight, not Aer Lingus - feels like a budget airline at a premium price - broken everything from chair to very poor seat design and situating, bathroom door was broken and was exposed to the toilet the whole flight -flight attendant service and attitude was beyond lousy. - never will i book from kayak or webjet every again."
Pros: "The biz class seat was good."
Cons: "Disorganized / messy check-in."
Cons: "A/c was not working and is not the first time that happened on aerlingus....my question is do you do maintenance on aircraft??????"
Pros: "Great crew food was good timely and professional."
Cons: "Need headphone adaptors. Airline headphones terrible."
Pros: "Clean plane & bathrooms"
Cons: "About 45 minute late in take off. The sound system for movie was very distorted almost not usable. I fly several times a year. My first time with Aer Lingus. This was not a good example of your profession"
Cons: "This was the first time in my life that an airline lost my luggage. I finally got it back 2 days later but it was a very stressful experience."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment selection. Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "So many unnecessary announcements. Repeated staff on board introducing pilot and crew members twice a well hour into a red eye flight. Lights were left on for far too many hours for a flight where most are sleeping. and they were extremely bright for the window seat. airlingus made it extremely difficult to get some shut eye."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment system--so many great movies & tv shows to choose from but the earphones were so bad I couldn't hear any of it."
Cons: "We were delayed on the plane for almost 3 hours and it was uncomfortable at times because it was warm and stuffy on board. Pilot did his best to get the air going again. Crew was great."
Pros: "Comfortable flat seats. Nice staff"
Pros: "I liked the straightforward flight home. Always friendly staff."
Cons: "I also loved that my return flight was changed to a much better convenient time ar no extra cost. I recommend this site for anyone to book their flights and hotels.."
Pros: "The crew were leaders. So much when you fly these days the crew don't take a leadership role. I don't mean, become mean - I mean to be a true leader. Say what needs to be said but don't say it mean."
Cons: "The plane was cold at times. The breakfast muffin could have been healthier....the ingredients were a bit off putting..too much sugar and artificial ingredients!!"
Cons: "Gate agents were quite rude"
Pros: "You can never really go wrong with Aer Lingus."
Pros: "The crew was great. We were given seat assignments 16 rows from our daughter, but they assisted and a passenger switched with her. The entertainment center looked good, if it had worked."
Cons: "The seating is so tight that reclining more than two inches severely interferes with the passenger behind. The narrow seats meant leaving an arm in the aisle, which the crew constantly ran into. The entertainment center was broken. The shepherd pie reminded me of military rations, and not in a good way. Between the tight space, reclining seats, blanket and pillow, you really have no room at sll"
Pros: "blankets were about as thick as toilet paper. Seats were really cramped, and difficult to sleep in. pillows felt like sandpaper, breakfast was unimpressive. Asked for an extra blanket and was told no, even though I saw many when I was leaving the plane. Young daughter was shivering while trying to sleep. Really bad experience."

Cons: "I'm still at Heathrow 12 hours later. I never made it to Oslo."
Cons: "Simply everything"
Cons: "The food could have been a a bit better."
Pros: "Love the A380 it’s smoothness quietness and spaciousness. The experienced mature crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food quality and selection. I"
Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"
Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."
Pros: "The crew was so incredible, the safety video was funny, the food was DELICIOUS, the accommodations were above and beyond. Comfortable, great movies, relaxing. First international flight and now I’ll always use British Air"
Cons: "Nothing. This has been the best flight experience I’ve ever had."
Pros: "No complaints at all"

Pros: "Getting our bags through on a tight connection - great job Staff were helpful in finding a safe place for my bassoon."
Cons: "inability to select seats without having to pay vast extra amounts of money is totally unacceptable. Ended up initially separated from my daughter and then on seats that did not recline.

Cons: "as always, rather crowded, seats rather tight,"

Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"
Pros: "Waitied.. in the okanevdir 40 minutes! Because couldn’t get the jolly to work for the steps Had to walk steps with my elderly mother with our carry on in the pouring rain.. then miss our flight to Milan had to wait 3 hours for the next flight ... which was also delayed."

Cons: "More legroom would have been nice"
Cons: "Paid for seat upgrade for "twin" seats on the side. Armrest did not move up, seats were tiny, and the side storage cabin that was one of the perks of the upgraded seating was dirty. For that matter the entire plane was dirty. Food was disgusting. The entire plane was understaffed; multiple people had their call lights on at one time. It was a miserable flight."
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Our vegetarian food was not available as requested."
Pros: "I like the fact that was San Francisco to London just one chunk of the flight."
