Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Cons: "Last minute change of boarding gate led to a dash across the airport!"
Pros: "My flight has been cancelled"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Pros: "food wqs decent entertainment options were also good."
Cons: "nothing to complain about except leg space"
Cons: "We had three hour delay due to thunderstorms."
Pros: "The food was great. The fresh bread is always wonderful."
Cons: "There were no free alcoholic drinks which help me to sleep. I changed seats and moved Mach further back in the plane. I don’t know if that contributed to it, but I was disappointed when I learned of this."
Pros: "That we had a bottle water"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "food selection"
Pros: "The 7 hr trip to Copenhagen was rough. The seats are too close together. My knees hit the seat in front of me even without reclining. When the seat in front of me reclined the tv screen was 6” away from my face. It was next to impossible to get out of the seat."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Complimentary bottles of water. Comfortable blankets."
Pros: "Left on time. 50 minutes early in Copenhagen. Food was not bad."
Cons: "TSA at EWR was ridiculous. Slow lines and very inefficient."
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"
Pros: "Very accommodating crew"
Cons: "I had a middle seat."
Pros: "All around everything was excellent. Will most likely always fly SAS between Riga and USA."
Cons: "late. support afterwards was awful."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Cons: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"
Cons: "The flight from EWR to Oslo was delayed by over 2 hours which meant I would miss my next connection... and I understand that happens sometimes. But, it was after hours on the airline number phone number and the fly.com customer service could not help with finding an alternate connection from Oslo to FRA. It was frustrating to then have to wait at Oslo airport for another 4 hours before the new connecting flight."
Pros: "Excellent all around. Super smooth, friendly and fast!!"
Pros: "2 meals included for a 7 hour flight!"
Pros: "Internet not working. Horrible."
Pros: "Great flight, on time great crew."
Pros: "Every one from the check-in counter to the baggage claim was gracious, courteous and very interested in my well-being. It was quite a lovely experience.."
Cons: "No problems at all... a wonderful trip"
Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Cons: "I didn't get any veg options for my dinner at all"
Pros: "First time using SAS and very pleasant trip"
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Entire crew very attentive!! We ate like Kings!"
Cons: "Long layover in Newark! My fault for not noticing when I booked it!"
Cons: "Multiple maintenance delays and groundcrew forgot to load some bags so there was an even further delay. Flight was cramped too."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Pros: "After four hours waiting on the tarmac, at 3AM in the morning, the flying attendants gave us free peanuts. That was very thoughtful."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. We waited on the tarmac for almost 4 hours, due a technical problem. Finally, they gave up attempting to solve the problem (at 3.30AM), and we disembarked. No assistance at all. No hotel. No meals. Rescheduling was a lengthy process. Staff was rude. Really a nightmare of an experience. Note to self: never ever fly again with SAS."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "The food, the comfortable seats, boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment options, very few movies, limited kinds of music"
Cons: "my flight from stockholm was delayed and there was a massive queue at border control and no SAS or airport staff to organise to get PAX through faster so they dont miss their connection I had to fight my way through the queue otherwise I would have lost my connection"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and attentive. Seemed to care about the comfort of the passengers. Very inviting and gracious."
Cons: "Seats and pillows could be more comfortable. All airline food is not good so okay indicated above is above expectations."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"
Pros: "It was great to have a bottle of water right at the beginning of the flight! Made it easier to settle down and relax."
Cons: "It would be great to have a greater offer of music. I really like to listen to some new music from good artists and to get inspired for new music on a long flight. It's too bad, SAS only offers playlists of 1 hour..."
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Pros: "No delays, early landing which made my 50 minute layover seamless."
Cons: "I have no complaints"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our bags were lost, no apologies (in fact, the phone was put down on me twice), when the bags were returned after 24 hours, one was damaged and had to be replaced at my expense....no chance of a refund. My family and I will NEVER TRAVEL WITH AER LINGUS AGAIN....the worst airline in the world"
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"
Pros: "Professionalism and kind , courteous people!!"
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."
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: "Great new seats"
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: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Shack in process was confusing and went awry taking forecer."
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"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Not enough legroom I felt like a sardine"
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: "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: "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: "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: "Comfortable flat seats. Nice staff"
Cons: "Gate agents were quite rude"
Pros: "You can never really go wrong with Aer Lingus."
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."
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: "TV and remote didn't work."
Cons: "There were 2 infants and 2 toddlers sitting directly in front of me and my newly engaged fiancé. They cried for almost all the red eye flight. 4 hours I believe it was. We did not get any sleep on the flight. We both normally do and it sets us up for the next day in Ireland. However on this occasion we did not and needed to go to sleep as soon as we got home in Ireland. It wasted an entire day for us not to mention the days to follow as our sleeping patterns were off. I understand Aerlingus could not control these crying babies however, when at the check in desk we asked could we receive 2 wing seats as opposed to the middle seats we had been assigned. The check in assistant could not do anything for us. Being from Ireland and living in New York I fly from the US to Ireland quite often. As do my family. This was my first experience with Aerlingus. One to forget."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Weather did not cooperate, not airlines fault...."
Cons: "Even though we were not rushed between flights, our luggage didn't make it onto the plane."

Cons: "I was sitting in the middle seat"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "It was late causing me to miss my connections"
Cons: "cramped seats-- but MOST IMPORTANLY HUGE surprise that there was a $ 95.00 charge for each checked bag. This was not stated anywhere clearly that this was an extra charge that had to be paid and therefore made the not so expensive ticket much more expensive in the end. It cost 400 dollars more and I think that is outrageous that this was not told by anyone until the flight itself. I fell Kayak owes usan explanation and money back ."
Cons: "Wish there were more current options on the infotainment system."
Cons: "Cabin was very cold"
Cons: "The terminal at JFK was a nightmare. Crowded. Overheated. Filthy. And no electrical outlets anywhere."

Pros: "I need a cheap flight and at the time that was my best bet. Didn't have a bad time but next time I will fly direct from the US."
Cons: "Seats were so so, leg room was barely substantial. Iceland is expensive even on a layover. Layover was a bit more excruciating on the second leg."
Pros: "Seating was good."
Cons: "What appeared to be the cooling system leaked onto me from above the seat. The blankets were not new as there was hair (not mine--different color), dried snot, and what looked like dandruff on two blankets in the row."

Cons: "It took three attempts to land. First Manchester, then Liverpool and finally (after declaring a fuel emergency) back at Manchester. Everyone knew a storm was brewing so why didn't the plane have extra fuel on board in case of a diversion?"
Cons: "Food and alcohol and headphones weren't free. The movies were very old."
Pros: "There were so many things wrong with our flight from Gatwick to NYC. The check in staff were rude and homophobic at check in, forcing my partner and I to separate for check in while we watched heterosexual partners check in together freely. The disabled toilet alarm broke as we descended into NYC and we listened to end-of-the-world death sirens as we were landing. It was not communicates that food was a microtransaction on flight and was so overpriced so we went nearly 13 hours without food because the flights were also delayed on the tarmac. The de-icing tow truck in Iceland was broken down so we were delayed two hours on the layover. On return, both Icelandair gates opened late. During the layover we were kettled in hot container units before 20 min before being bussed to the plane and held for 15 minutes. Then, the icing on the cake was landing back at Gatwick and seeing my brand new luggage I bought on the trip damaged with thr back pocked ripped out along the bottom seam. I will never again ride with these rude, price-gouging, apathetic amateurs."
Pros: "nothing, but previously I've had great experience with this airline"
Cons: "They cancelled this ticket. I was unable to make a flight on the first ticket due to a business partner being ill (blood pressure issues). I then purchased a premium economy comfort ticket for the next day, also on IcelandAir, which was TWICE the cost of my original deal yet they would not honor my ticket. It really was quite disgusting and handled very badly. There was a medical situation that cost me far more than and then they would not honor my ticket to Manchester, so I had to fly WOWair to Bristol UK instead."
Pros: "Flight crew was really nice, attentive, respectful"
Cons: "Avoid if you prefer being able to sit down."
Pros: "Flight good. Missed the pay for food trolley, so didn't eat."
Cons: "Reykavic airport has the least amenities I have ever experienced. Very few seats in the lounge. Most are forced to stand or lie on the floor. Don't think that getting through the gate will mean getting on plane, it's too another waiting room with a few seats, mainly standing. The airport has no seated restaurants or cafes. So getting off a plane hungry id not pleasant. I will never again fly to and from New York via this 'airport'"
Pros: "Efficient and smoothe flight, on time"
Cons: "baggage delay due to? security breach at aircraft. 2 hours standing around, almost as long as the flight"
Pros: "Safe and pleasant."
Cons: "I arrived my destination 24hrs late. 2 unplanned stopovers. Terrible experience."
Pros: "All was smooth and comfortable. Thanks"
Cons: "Plane was too warm. Air conditioning was set much too high. Uncomfortable to us. No way to set air vents."
Pros: "Service was great and all went exactly as planned. No delays!"
Cons: "When we boarded in Reykjavik al was fine until the pilot announced that the bag sorting machinery was malfunctioning. We were told we'd be delayed while 18 bags were found and sorted by hand. Then it was 14. And an hour later, we left. Apparently it was still five. That is how many of us were still waiting at the carousel when all the bags had come off. I suspect Iceland Air decided that was an acceptable number and sent us on knowing that they hadn't found all the bags. I did eventually get my bag... six days later and after quite a few unanswered messages. That is partly because Iceland subcontracts list bag service to a company called THS, which again subcontracts delivery to a company called APC. All of these appear allergic to caulking US numbers. Iceland Air for the win."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The plane was too hot, delayed take off lost luggage"
Cons: "Although I paid for a confirmed seat and chose my seat 6 months in advance, when 24 hour check-in rolled around I was told I had been moved to standby and would thus only have a seat if there were any left once everyone else had checked in. I had to wait until I arrived at the airport the day of to even find out if I had a seat. There were only two left when I checked in, so I just barely got on the flight. I had originally chosen a seat next to a friend traveling with me in the middle of the cabin, in the end I got a seat in the very back of the plane- no room in the overhead bins since they were reserved for flight equipment, couldn't recline, and was right by the kitchen, so it was too noisy to sleep. When I called customer service to try to fix all of this, in the middle of explaining my problem (after waiting on hold for an hour) I was told to stop talking and that it was the rep's turn to talk. In addition to not getting my problem resolved, he hung up on me! Worst treatment I've ever received on an airpline, and I've flown thousands of times on dozens of airlines. Once this trip is over I am never flying Icelandic again!"

Cons: "No food for an international flight"
Pros: "Service was good, no real complaints"

Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "you had to pay for everything...."
Pros: "quiet and clean.. no turbulence"
Cons: "I spend a lot of money on tickets and it seems like a glass of wine would be a nice gesture by the airline to say thanks for coming, we are glad you are here, relax."
Pros: "Professional, helpful staff and the plane was very clean. Blankets and pillows were waiting for us and water was provided as we boarded. I needed assistance to get around the airports and someone was waiting for me with a wheel chair at each stop. Wonderful flight at a reasonable cost."
Pros: "Loved the northern lights on the ceiling! Good legroom, friendly staff, and easy boarding."
Cons: "I wish there had been some way to charge my phone"

Pros: "We arrived on time!"
Cons: "Checking in and dropping off luggage was a nightmare... There was no one at the check in desks indicated on the screens or the check in terminals. Eventually I found a desk at a different location that would take my bag. Boarding was chaotic, no lines, just a crowd blocking access. Even passengers with small children couldn't get through. Space between seats was minimal. Crew was ordering passengers to take headphones off during security demo. I understand it is important to be attentive, but ultimately you shouldn't be forced to."

Cons: "they do not offer even water with no pay"
Cons: "I can’t rate it is it left without us"

Cons: "Boarding @ JFK was a joke. That part of airport is currently under construction, so massive # of ppl & not enough room for everyone. Once on plane, all reasonably good until we reached altitude & settled in for the evening. At that point, for some reason the heat came on between rows 39 & 46 (we were in row 45) & was on all. night. long. on an overnight flight. Crew was baffled & didn’t know how to fix. I was melting & miserable — impossible to sleep. Cramped, basic economy seats. Awful experience."

Pros: "I liked the air crew and the media systems on the plane."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that we were charged 75 euros because our bags were .5 kilos over weight. The lady put the bags through before giving us the cost and the option to move things around into our carry on bags. That was extremely disappointing."

Cons: "TV/movie screen was not working."

Cons: "When I got on the plane there was urine on my seat and no one told me before I sat down. DISGUSTING"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat from Iberia Airline.The cushion was almost down to spring. Need to upgrade. Crew are not very helpful. Service is not good. Specially at the Airport, speaking English is very bad. I need an assistance to request for PRM ASSISTANCE for wheel chair, I don't believe that he don't speak English at all, Why would he be in that position. It should have bilingual person. I'm sure whether he pretend too I have walk back & forth to get help for information to have it translate to Spanish. All He does is make priority to all local people, it took one hour to get the wheel chair & then by transfer to intl national airport by bus took another hour, we check in @ 8:30AM by the time we get into the terminal was 12:30PM the flight leave 2 12:45PM. What a service. I will never ever flight with Iberia Airline. What a BAD service. Communication by itself is very very bad, the airline crew hardly can speak English. We have 6 people. We will definitely not recommend Iberia Airline. Thank you."
