Airline reviews

Cons: "We had a huge delay"

Pros: "Even though we flew through turbulances the crew was able to manage their tasks. Plus beautiful stewardess."

Pros: "Very short flight so pretty standard."
Cons: "The flight attendants and employees at the airport seemed completely miserable. I heard flight attendants telling passengers on multiple occasions that because the flight was short they couldn’t help them."

Cons: "Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore"

Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."

Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"

Pros: "Reliable, modern cabin, nice crew"
Cons: "Some more music choices would be nice"

Cons: "We didn’t make it to Venice due to delays because Boston wasn’t ready for a snowstorm."

Pros: "On time; smooth boarding process; lights dimmed for a reasonably long time."
Cons: "NO legroom on the Zurich to Dusseldorf flight."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was so friendly and professional, on top of the nice plane condition, which made the trip very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food standard seemed to be lowered a little bit, but still very well prepared."

Cons: "2.5 hour delay, missed connection, arrived more than 5 hours after originally planned. Entertainment system did not function. Crew did not collect garbage/unused items prior to landing and I was holding garbage in my hands during landing (and some spilled on my lap)."

Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "Very Pleasant Staff!"

Pros: "Great service."

Cons: "I chose my seat online and when I got to the gate they changed my seat to the way back of the plane"

Cons: "I couldn’t take it. To travel to pass through Canada you need a Visa"

Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."

Pros: "They waited for us. We came in late and had to connect to this flight and they waited the 10 min for me and 8 other passengers. Very grateful for that. Service and food was amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Easy, quiet boarding and flight, USB port available, audio and sound were working, nice movie selection. Friendly and helpful crew, assisted with cough crisis"
Cons: "Seats from JFK to Zurich were a little bit squeezed."

Pros: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."

Pros: "Flight was exactly on time as described. Crew was friendly"

Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."

Pros: "Overall excellent. Full professional and caring staff and company."

Cons: "I was randomly selected for a second security check at the boarding gate in Zurich airport, the security staff were unfriendly, said it was a TSA requirement even though I stated I am a United States Citizen and That I have already passed through a complete security check Point, still they placed a metal & scanning detector on my feet, hands & belt. This was a complete violation of my rights. Never have I faced a humiliating situation at any other airport. If this was a TSA requirement then everyone should be subject to a second security check."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The business class seats were just like the economy class, not wider or extra space, only an empty seat in between, not worth the money. The first flight from Cairo to Zürich, no meal or snack was offered. Very disappointed in Swiss business class"

Pros: "Kind crew and a short flight"
Cons: "Snack choices too limited, but it was great that they even had them."

Pros: "Friendly service. Efficient. More leg room than most other airlines. Decent entertainment. Decent food."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Seats too small. Staff not friendly"

Pros: "See above. Zurich is a very easy airport and even though our layover was short we never felt rushed or stressed."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, also the service given since it was a long flight."

Pros: "The flight had a delay but managed to (partially) make up for it."
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow. Perhaps it would be nice to more explicitly explain to people how to more quickly stow their luggage and then sit down in order to let other people through. The seats felt a little more cramped than usual."

Cons: "Too narrow seats."

Cons: "No announcement regarding delay. No boarding announcement. Very uncomfortable, older business seats. Actually had a sore back after the flight. Couldn't get comfortable. Travelling companion had the same experience. Small screen."

Pros: "nice and efficient crew. seats had good space for flight"
Cons: "no entertainment."

Pros: "food and crew were excellent: good meals, free wine."
Cons: "Screen was dim and low-resolution, controls slow and hard to use, no power outlets."

Pros: "No delays. Good boarding *but I have Senator status so I bypass lines). Food good even on short flight"

Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"

Cons: "Checking in we had a nasty representative, but other than that, all was well"

Cons: "Ice cream snack."

Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. I LOVE that we were given ice cream and chocolate - only wish I'd been given more chocolate. They came by with drinks often and made sure that we were well hydrated."
Cons: "It was only an hour long flight, and I slept most of the way. From what I could tell, the staff seemed friendly. Only complaint would be that on the way to the plane (we had to take a bus) we were packed in like sardines and it was very hot. Once we got to the plane, we were left standing in the bus for a couple minutes. Because of the heat, I thought I was going to pass out."

Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."

Pros: "Chicken with polenta was better than most airplane meals."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats/Bed. tray table hard to come out. no one answered the bell. Old movies (same 2 yrs ago). 1st meal OK, not great. Second meals not good at all. They should learn service from Lufthansa/United or Emirates. Very Disappointed."

Pros: "Crew was very kind and accommodating."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat online due to Swiss system issues and when I called, customer service was completely unhelpful despite the 25 minutes I had to wait for someone to answer."

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Very old plane. Had a big metal box at my feet, could not stretch out. Tv screens old and hard to watch. Food was pretty bleak too. Very disappointed."

Cons: "No room and very hard to get t your seat"

Cons: "late due to late arrival to Zurich, 45 min late."

Pros: "Good frequent food / beverage service."
Cons: "Bathrooms were pretty soiled - may have just been seen between having been noticed by staff."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing short"

Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."

Cons: "Cleanliness"

Pros: "Crew was awesome! Service was quick!"

Cons: "They lost my bags. Unacceptable"

Pros: "Seats too small"
Cons: "Crappie entertainment. Never figured out how to login on phone,"

Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"

Cons: "Delayed and did not explain why"

Pros: "Crew is always friendly"
Cons: "Aircraft broke, had to route me to an additional three stops just to get me home and through the night. Also, still unsure of where my checked baggage is."

Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"

Pros: "Crew was really nice."
Cons: "My first flight was delay because of that I lost my second flight."

Pros: "Nothing to like when 1. you are arriving at your destination after 24 hours plus delays. 2. you paid Comfort+ class (not cheap) and are constantly pushed back in the Main Cabin."
Cons: "Actual flights flying on time. What a mess!"

Pros: "The food. And services."
Cons: "Upgrade for customers like me. For next fly to first class."

Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should be assigned when we checked in. They weren't for the second leg. But, the seats are fine."

Cons: "In the last months I have travel 3 times , this is the first with Delta. I can say it has been the best experience I had. Good entertainment, the access to texting and the variety of snacks make superior this airline."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Don’t change my chosen seat that I paid for as I am entering the plane without my knowledge and acceptance"

Cons: "Upgraded to comfort, I’ve never sat in a better seat. The crew was all very polite, informative and friendly. Quick and easy flight. Thank you!!"

Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on the plane."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Ac not working properly. Hot."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No food or drinks"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."

Pros: "Excellent attendants. Smooth boarding and on time flight."

Cons: "Too cramped. No leg room"

Pros: "Entertainment on first flight"
Cons: "Food, no smoking at Minneapolis airport"

Pros: "in Charlotte"
Cons: "delay on flight"

Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("

Cons: "Was not a wheelchair waiting for Wallace."

Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Good boarding experience. Seating had access to electrical plugs for charging my phone."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "That we weren't automatically transferred to the next available flight to Burbank."

Cons: "requirement to wait for seat assignment until at the gate"

Pros: "On Time"

Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."

Pros: "The crew was great, boarding and exit went smoothly."

Pros: "Crew was quick and nice."
Cons: "Not many options for food."

Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."

Cons: "Amazing"

Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"

Pros: "They had aircraft flying to my destination. All other airlines were booked for the time and the destination I had in mind."
Cons: "Long Delays, Over Booked Flights, Customer Service is not helpful, Wrong info delivered by Customer Service, No boarding gate info, Luggage was damaged, and I was charged a large premium with no added value. Delta sold me a 1st class flight because of their delays and overbooking their flights. This was because they could not fulfill the ticket I had. This was Delta's solution to their problem caused by them. I still have no idea why the flights were delayed. On top of all this, I overheard a walk-on pilot ask if there was room for him to catch a lift home. The flight attendant responded with "absolutely this flight is not full at all, you can sit right here". Wait I had to pay 200 bucks extra for an overbooked flight and you are having your Delta representatives say different. This was my first and last trip with Delta. I spent 1000 dollars for round trip ticket from Seattle to Spokane WA. No way is that OK or acceptable under any circumstances to treat your customers like this. The best part about all of this is, I have sent feedback and called customer service to talk to a manager to hear the blame put on back on me. Perception is reality Delta. Awful service, awful prices, awful care, awful communication, and awful value for the money."

Cons: "even though I paid for premium economy, the seating was still cramped shoulder to shoulder"

Cons: "This flight was bad from the beginning. We tried to check in and immediately received an error msg stating there was a mis connection due to a delay on the cancun to atl flight. This made no sense bc the cancun to atl flight left on time. We landed 6 minutes late but had already been rebooked to a later flight to LGA. I'm also disappointed delta even allowed us to book on the original flight because there was no way we could have made that connection!! We arrived at our terminal 20 mins prior to boarding for the rebooked flight. It took us approx 2 hrs to get through customs and security in Atlanta."

Pros: "I was upgraded to First at the gate. The crew was very professional and friendly. Food mini-minimal, but OK."
Cons: "On this A320 craft, old style, the First class seats are a joke. I had seat 2B. The pitch is apparently less than in the Comfort+ rows. The passengers in 1A and 1B started reclining even before departure, and during the whole flight. For me and my neighbor, with that seat on our chest, it was impossible to reach down to the seat-back pocket, not to mention to the bag stowed under the seat in front. To get out of the seat, I almost could not get my legs through the 5-in. interval between the back of the front seat and the irremovable armrest. I shook the passenger sleeping in 1B rather violently a couple times. The lady in seat 2B apologized, but she had to climb and put her feet on my seat to get out of hers, there was really no other way. Delta needs to address this ridiculous situation of their First Class seats urgently."

Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"

Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and helpful"

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"

Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."

Cons: "No proper wheel chair assistant and made passenger miss the flight. Airlines have to take extra steps to make wheel chair passengers to reach the gate safely and on time."

Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."

Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."

Pros: "We purchased seats with extra legroom. They were well worth the extra cost as we were very comfortable."

Cons: "Very bad food"

Cons: "Seats are tiny and crews English was just okay."

Pros: "Good plane and service"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "Rating and bad customer experience shared on web...."

Pros: "Food was excellent. Wide variety of entertainment options. Good German beer."
Cons: "Cramped seating in economy for the long flight with thin padding making me very aware of the knees of the man behind me."

Pros: "On time Boarding was convenient"
Cons: "Food Seats"

Pros: "Great cabin crew. Acceptable food and beverage es"
Cons: "Long delays and missed connections. Shoving more people than possible in airport bus. Disfunctional audio jack on passenger entertainment panel (same as last year (poor Maintanence)"

Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Crew was not nice at all. They would skip us along the way while serving others, or even drop ice on us, and never said sorry once (instead, they would say it's only ice, or if I want 2 since they skipped me already twice when serving tea unlike the passengers around me on both sides). We paid nearly $6k for the 3 of us, but the crew made us feel as if we paid nothing. The entertainment system did not work well, and most of the time the movies refused to play. We were always suggested to restart, and were not even given free access to internet as an alternative. No one ever apologized for anything in the entire flight, it felt like this flight was a favor."

Pros: "The crew was extremely responsive, inviting, and constantly walking about the cabin to see if passengers needed juice or water. The boarding, for such a large flight, was pretty smooth."
Cons: "The small screens for entertainment need to be updated. It took mine a few minutes into the flight before I could access all of the entertainment options. Additionally, the touchscreen was very difficult to navigate, as it jumped between non-responsive and too sensitive throughout the flight. Furthermore, the headphone jack should be updated, so that passengers can use their own headphones without an adapter. The headphone audio setup at my seat did not work very well."

Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Most of it"

Pros: "Everything was generally good and normal"
Cons: "Except the plane was roasting and had no vents"

Pros: "Service , on time"

Pros: "it was quite comfortable"
Cons: "luggage got delayed by 2 days. No dresses to even wear. Plus lufthanse didn't know where my bags were."

Cons: "Leg room was less"

Cons: "Terrible food and atrocious crew staff -- impatient, rude, unhelpful and racist. Unacceptable to give kitkat and sweet offerings for kids meals both times. Zero nutrition and terrible for children. Adult meals were equally unpalatable. Aircraft was also older and not in the best condition."

Pros: "Services, Food, Crew"
Cons: "IFE doesn't had much options."

Pros: "service, care for my 85 pound dog and his kennel while traveling halfway across the globe! Thank you! Flight was smooth, services on board excellent."

Pros: "Aircraft crew was decent."
Cons: "Seattle to Frankfurt aircraft was the dingiest and most crammed aircraft I have ever used on an international leg. The seats were tiny so much so that some other passengers were not able to fit in! The lighting was gloomy, restroom dirty within the first hour of the flight, no space to keep any magazine or books on the back rest of the seat in front of you, etc. Overall - such a bad experience. Not expected from Lufthansa, especially as I have had great experience with Lufthansa earlier."

Pros: "The view - flying low over the northern extremes of Canada was superb. Thanks to the pilots etc."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving at Frankfurt. I requested a notification to my connecting flight. Crew member frowned, turned away and in formed me, "We don't do that". I ran to the Connecting Lufthansa flight and barely made it on time."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "The boarding process made it easy to find my seat and get settled in."
Cons: "My seat back didn’t recline. But the one in front of me did. So I was penned in."

Pros: "The staff and food was great!"
Cons: "Seats are very close. Not comfortable when neighbors are big and fake up my space!"

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent, and entertainment was also very good. Most importantly, there was no delay."

Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."

Pros: "OK"

Pros: "Food was pretty good except for breakfast. Hospitality is great. Wish there was more access to water."
Cons: "Big passengers sitting near smaller passengers is annoying as they encroach on the limited space that exist and armrests suck as per usual."

Pros: "Our attendents were clearly focused on our needs. Efficient and still very human and kind. A real treat."

Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."

Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."

Pros: "Everything! Excellent stewards too!"

Cons: "You lost my luggage"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Few choice of movies"

Pros: "Thank you for the great experience!"

Pros: "Entertainment options were incredible; great legroom in our seats."

Pros: "COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT WAS BEST"
Cons: "BOARDING SLOW CREW A BIT RUDE"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. No compensation given either"

Pros: "Lufhansa did a great job. During flights, everything was good."
Cons: "Security check in Frankfurt was terrible, violating all human rights in every possible way! Please don't tell me that it is for passengers safety; such a humiliation cannot be justified by any reason! Since Lufthansa uses this airport for the most of their flights, I would not fly with this company anymore"

Pros: "Check in smooth and professional. Please change places with Asia air so you are in front of rather than behind the hoard of people."
Cons: "On my flight from Seattle to Frankfurt I had one stewardess repeatedly skip me. She was a bit older. I thought after the first overlook she would take extra care but did not. This resulted in me having to ask the crew to repeat their previous steps just for me. "Hi, I know you are serving coffee but I wanted red wine". She was a bit clipped about having to repeat steps but what was I to do? She never looked up enough to see my hand and clearly didn't look at my face. She also didn't pick up my hand towel. I essentially had to rely on the rest of the crew but the care from this lady started to feel purposefully negligent of me. The rest of the staff was friendly and efficient. I also thought we were supposed to get an appertiff...one was never offered. Couldn't check in online. Was fine once I got to the countr but could you trade space with Asia air? It makes sense to have them at the end as they have a huge hoard of people it would be nice not to have to go through and several spots to check in. Check in at the desk otherwise was smooth and professional."

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. I bought the extra legroom seats and they were so worth it! I couldn't even tough the seat in front of me. Free wine. And the movies on your personal screen were all really good. Probably the best flight I have ever been on."

Pros: "The crew was especially great!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything - Seating is so cramped. Food was even worse than usual airline food. Will never fly Aer Lingus again"

Pros: "On time, as expected, no delays"
Cons: "USB chargers and more modern entertainment systems"

Cons: "No USB charging point working and I had purchased on board wifi"

Pros: "The entertainment was good and that’s about it! The crew was extremely bossy! The aircraft should have been cleaned better. Terrible odors and dirty kitchens!"
Cons: "See above"

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: "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"

Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour. Gate changed twice without announcement"

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: "See above"

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: "Smooth uneventful flight. Still needs far more leg room for everyone taller than 5’5”. This is makes longer flights very difficult to endure."

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: "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."

Cons: "Older plane was provided by Prestige. Not operated by Aer Lingus. Did not find out until gate. No entertainment, limited food and drink choices. Families were split up causing very slow boarding. Long flight over 7 hours with no movie or screens."

Pros: "Had to cacel this flight"

Cons: "chaotic boarding process"

Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"

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"

Cons: "Having to leave the terminal and going through security again was insanely stressful and I barely made my flight."

Pros: "Suggest lanes with seat number groups in order to avoid people crowding the entry to boarding the plane. Dinner selection: Msin dish choice ran out and was left with only one entree to choose from Increase chicken bard entrees"
Cons: "Had to fight through a crowd to make my way to the gate."

Pros: "Great service from entering the airport to leaving. Flight a little bumpy at times.."

Cons: "Lost luggage"

Pros: "Entertainment very good food good"
Cons: "Cramped boarding disorganized"

Pros: "The leg room was smaller some of the other airlines. The seat was so uncomfortable to sit on for the flight."
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "Quick efficient"

Pros: "He crew were nice."
Cons: "The flight has an hour delay from LAX that caused me to have 20 minuets catch my connection flight and I did not receive my bag. I’m on vacation for 5 days in Hamburg and I’ve already lost 1 day to go out and explore the city. This was my first time flying with Aer Lingus and I unfortunately will be my last time."

Pros: "They were helpful on the ground, though some of the crew were cold on the plane, not unhelpful, but not helpful"

Cons: "Only water was free on inter EU FLIGHT and AL made it,inconvenient"

Pros: "On time, newish plane. A very short flight so"
Cons: ". Couldn’t change seat at checkin so couldn’t sit next to husband who was on a separate reservation Boarding is not by seat number, you have to queue up in a long line ."

Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."

Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."

Pros: "Decent meals."
Cons: "Pretty frustrated with in flight movie unit. Audio kept dropping out. One time entire unit locked up for about 45 minutes and had to be reset."

Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, okay food."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't great. The earphones quality was quite bad and felt really uncomfortable. Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side). I'll definitely fly with them again, only next time I'll bring an attachment for me to be able to use my headphones."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Lost our luggage for a few hours after we landed"

Cons: "No movies, no entertainment and the crew were not polite"

Pros: "I liked doing immigration in Dublin rather than Chicago, even though the process was lengthy. We couldn't understand why, having done the automated system, the process was virtually repeated at the immigration desk. Queues were very long."
Cons: "As above plus my husband's seat arm was broken. The inflight entertainment system was a joke. Back of seat screens fitted but not working. Very distant ceiling screens and only one working before the whole system failed. Not acceptable on a long flight."

Pros: "I had not pre-ordered a vegetarian meal, and there were no extras, but one of the flight attendants gave me a fruit salad from one of the crew's meals."
Cons: "The sound quality for the announcement system and the headphones was really bad, so I could never understand what anyone was saying. The crew is very formal and sometimes curt and borderline rude. They just seem very inflexible and seem to put rules before people."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."

Pros: "in flight entertainment was diverse and kept me occupied. the food was quite good, and free since it was a transatlantic flight. smooth flight and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding is very haphazard and disorganized. Somewhat the airlines responsibility since they could keep it more controlled by enforcing what tows they will allow to pass. I couldn't do an online checkin with any of my Aer Lingus flights. As a result, my partner and I had seats far from each other and at the back of the plane."

Pros: "Food excellent, plane staff pleasant. Plane was late."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. The young man at the,AL desk at Frankfort was tude,and dismissive. It is more than 24 hours later now and they have made no contact."

Pros: "The crew seemed genuinely happy. They were fast and accommodating. The food was good and they kept the cabin dark so those that wanted to sleep could. Food service was timely and on point. We had 1 full meal and 1 snack. The snacks were, strangely, quite good."
Cons: "The entertainment was hard to hear. I think it is due to the old style 2-jack headphones. I suspect that the supplied headphones aren't the highest quality (they are free, for everyone, why would they be?). I forgot my adapter so I couldn't use my own headphones... oh well."

Pros: "Nice, new clean aircraft, excellent meal service, very very friendly crew, top notch the minute we got on plane"
Cons: "Two major problems, when we went to check in, we stood in line and were very rudely told by some German British Airways attendent that we couldn't check in with them and that we needed to go to Aer Lingus, this even though our reservations were through British Airways. Second, despite my efforts over a few months to make seat reservations, my daughter and i were separated. Aer Lingus reps in rome fixed that and I was very, very grateful for that, but when we got to the Dublin/Boston leg of our flight, they couldn't or wouldn 't fix the seating issue. On board the plane though, the flight attendents arranged for my daughter and I to sit together. Really upset me that I didn't know until the very last minute, on the plane, whether I was going to be able to sit next to my child."

Pros: "All crew members were friendly and courteous. The gluten free dinner was good."
Cons: "The sound on the on board entertainment system was not good at all. It was difficult to hear the dialog."

Pros: "Serviceable flight."
Cons: "Unable to check in 24 hours before the flight."

Pros: "Free movies and plenty of food"
Cons: "Would have liked to been able to afford better seats"

Pros: "The choice Seats did not disappoint. Plenty of room to wiggle around. Food was ok."
Cons: "My seat was in a permanent slightly reclined position even though it's not because when the person behind me pulls himself up he would grab the back part. So it's probably broken. And so every time the crew member would check, she would say to keep my seat upright when it already is. It became annoying at some point. The touch screen did not work so you have to push several times to get the movie working."

Pros: "Good food and service. In-flight entertainment was decent, and pillows and blankets were provided."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant experience with Aer Lingus and will not fly to/from Ireland on any other airline from now on!"

Pros: "Glenlivet whisky for free"

Pros: "The entire crew was amazing! Super comfy flight with complete lie-flat club world seats. Arrived into London feeling very refreshed!"

Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Internet connection."

Pros: "Great crew and flight"

Cons: "Should have the seat assignments opened in advance for international passengers, especially who paid for business class."

Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"

Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."

Cons: "Long wait at the gate upon arrival at Heathrow."

Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."

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: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"

Pros: "I enjoyed all of the amenities provided on this flight, the service and food was great and I got to enjoy 3 new movies I'd been meaning to see."
Cons: "No complaints here! It was a great way to start off our vacation."

Pros: "Comfortable short hop"

Cons: "Pointless priority boarding if you get all priority passengers to wait for the rest of the flight.."

Pros: "Food was great. Sleeper amazing- I was asleep for at least 4 hours"

Pros: "Great movies that were free!"
Cons: "The structure under the seats were set up super odd, so that my leg space was cut in half by a bar making it difficult to store my bag."

Pros: "Fast as smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food, the entertainment and the staff was super friendly"
Cons: "The seats should be more comfortable for such a long flight"

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."

Cons: "2 Hour Delay"

Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"

Pros: "Crew was great, both ground and air. Flight was on time and baggage was delivered efficiently."
Cons: "Could not get a cup of coffee. I can't believe you charge for a cup of plain black coffee. To add insult to injury, my credit cards (plural) were declined and cash was not accepted. I have not had any problem with my cards anywhere else on this trip, so the problem was not mine."

Cons: "I had to watch movies with barely an audible and only one side of my headphones worked. It wasn't the headphones but rather the sound in the arm where the headphones plug in. Made a 10 hour flight even longer."

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."

Cons: "For some reason we were boarded and ready to go and only then did they think to send for a de-icer. A 40 minute delay on a 1 hour flight. At the other end we then had to wait 20 mins to get off."

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: "The crew was really nice overall and the entertainment system was adequate. The main meal was decent too."
Cons: "The flight was late (I was warned online but there was denial at the airport and gate) and further delayed in flight so I missed my connection. I didn't like the pods in business class. I had a forward facing seat at least, which are all by the aisles. They seemed narrow. I didn't sleep (never do). The breakfast was a bit lame. Getting into buses from the plane IS lame. It took a while to get to the terminal."

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."

Pros: "After flying internationally in business class for work a number of times, this was my first international flight in economy. Exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Second leg of flight ran late but no big impact."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"

Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time! Comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "So nice to be able to lie down fir the long distances. The food was quite good for airplane fare."
Cons: "Where do they get these movies? Surely there are good movies that are a few years old they could offer."

Pros: "When it got going, a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The delay was longer than the flight, although not necessarily BA's fault."

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: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was not tasty, leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable,"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and service was excellent"
Cons: "Keep the complementary snacks and drinks made the flight great after a long day"

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."

Pros: "Seattle to London was wonderful in all aspects great service comfort and amenities."

Pros: "Food good and very attentive and friendly Cabin crew Amanda made the flight a pleasure."

Pros: "No access to any lounge services. Food selection and quality significantly behind competitors. Does not just the price charged."

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"

Cons: "Entertainment on the flight and also seats condition"

Pros: "Seating and spacious cabin."
Cons: "Bus at GVA to furthest possible parking spot."

Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "The worst waiting for a boarding pass I ever seen.2 priority lines and a bag drop line and a check in line.both for ba 1 for city airport and the other for Gatwick at the same time.choas."

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?"

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."
