Booked with less 24hrs before flight. Things could not have gone easier or smoother checking in online & uploading forms/vaccinations on the VeriFLY App. Attended JFK airport and in less then 5 mins I’d checked my bag in at the VeriFLY/Aer Lingus. 10 mins after that I’d been through security and was in the departure lounge. Aer Lingus boarded the plane early, took off on time and landed early. All in all it was a great flight, but the coffee was awful 😣

Cons: "Entertainment was a bit old thought and the snacks were a poor"
Cons: "Good service cold have come sooner, I wanted to sleep as much as possible but it was a full 2 hours before the service finished."
Pros: "On time flight, no problems."
Cons: "Seats more cramped than would be ideal for a trsnsatlantic flight."
Cons: "The flight was canceled hours before departure. I waited for 30 minutes on hold to see if I could get on a different flight. But they couldn’t get me to my destination for 2-3 days after my originally-scheduled arrival."
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work for me"
Cons: "Flight was good. Kayak service terriible. First time user and I’ll never use it again. Who wants to deal with a third third part. Information was not translated properly and resulted in my wife and I on separate flight."
Pros: "Professionalism and kind , courteous people!!"
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."
Cons: "Food/ beverage service poor - luggage handling extremely bad. Delayed delivery at muc airport of one bag. Second bag did not arrive. Their luggage handler - global- extremely un/non professional. Absolute diaster: no offical tracing nr established, had tocontact air lingus myself.their phones seem not to work - the phone rings,then disconnects. Still no update on the present whereabout of the bag"
Pros: "The flight was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "The packaged meals are never the best, but the breakfast box was good."
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: "I had a good flight. No complaints."
Pros: "Very comfortable Transfer in Dublin very easy Everyone very helpful"
Cons: "No free alcohol on an international flight?!?!"
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."
Cons: "Flight delayed hour and a half"
Pros: "Boarding was fast but take off was very slow"

Cons: "Some of the food"
Pros: "Staff quite friendly Nice plane. Had 3 seat to myself"
Cons: "Once again I had no choice of meal as my seat was at the last row"
Pros: "I liked that we got dinner and breakfast included and that food was actually tasty."
Cons: "- disorganized flight info from the moment it's booked. 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: "Friendly and professional service from the flight crew, the food was fine, and the flight was not too crowded."
Cons: "The viewing screen on for my seat was not working properly, but I had an empty seat next to me and could use that one,"
Pros: "Flight was not full"
Cons: "My bags are lost and no one is helping me I'm very frustrated ."
Pros: "I had been thinking about whether or not I want to contact Aer Lingus or not on this matter. The Aer Lingus personnel never gave me my dinner until 15 minutes after everyone else received theirs."
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: "Our flight was cancelled without a reschedule"
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: "Everything was basic. I got an old plane so everything wasn't up to date"
Cons: "It was slow in taking off, not sure why but the plane was taxi'd for a long time. In-flight system and variety was lacking. Audio was poor. It did the job taking me to my destination but the great."
Pros: "Very professional, friendly, on time, food was fine"
Cons: "Took very long to retrieve checked luggage....from time we landed - to deplane, secure luggage, tram to long term parking and leaving lot took over 1 hour. Most of the time was waiting for luggage on turnstile...."
Pros: "It was a full flight and the attendance were friendly and attentive."
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: "Good movie selection, not bad food,"
Cons: "Flight arrival time, not a fan of the red-eye."
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 flights were on time."
Cons: "Since I booked with vayama, through kayak, aerlingus wouldn't give me more than basic flight info. I didn't even know if my seats were confirmed, which they weren't on the connecting flight with JetBlue airlines. The website said to contact vayama, vayam said contact the airline. Our bags were not checked through to our destination so we had to collect them in New York. They are supposedly partner airlines but told us we had no choice and had to wait till aerlingus opened customer service. We were stuck for 7 hours outside of security with our bags and 1 Duncan donuts kiosk. The 12 hr overall layover was bad enough without that. I understand that booking through discount sites comes with its own cost, but you should know if you have assigned seats and that your baggage will make it."
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew. They were calm, professional and incredibly kind. We had along our 10 month old baby and they were so welcoming and helpful with her. The best crew I've ever interacted with on a flight."
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: "I thought the staff was attentive and friendly. I'm an anxious flier and the flight attendant checked on me multiple times during the flight. Thank you. The plane appeared new and clean."
Cons: "I don't have any negative feedback."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours at JFK. Missed connecting flight in Dublin. Journey from JFK to Munich took 171/2 hours. Airline gave my a big $14 worth of coupons."
