There are no non-stop flights between Dublin Airport and Brisbane Airport. However, there are a number of one-stop options. You can fly to Brisbane with Qatar Airways via Hamad International Airport in Doha (DOH), or with Emirates via Dubai International Airport (DXB). Another option to consider – although it does involve two stops – is to fly from Dublin on Aer Lingus or British Airways to London Heathrow (LHR), then with Singapore Airlines to Singapore Changi (SIN), and then connect to Brisbane. For this last leg, you can choose to fly with Singapore Airlines or with Qantas. You can also do this route from London with Cathay Pacific via Hong Kong, or with Thai Airways via Bangkok.
A quick way to get from Brisbane Airport to the downtown area is by taxi, or by using an e-hailing service. A taxi will cost upwards of around A$47 (€30) and will take about 20min. The Airtrain departs every 15min at peak times and takes 20min to reach the city centre. The cost for this is around A$9 (€6) each if you travel as a group of four or more.

Cons: "Everything is excellent"
Pros: "Very pleasant and comfortable flight with QA."
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."
Cons: "Not a lot other than better choice of movies and music. Super airline as always"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "The crew were good"
Cons: "Food- eggs were terrible. The touch screens for the movies didn't work properly on either of our seats. Flight took off late, spent a long time taxi'ing. Sound for announcements was very bad"

Pros: "Qatar airlines the service was awesome and the planes very clean"
Cons: "Seating not able to upgrade"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."
Cons: "Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Nothing much except for Hamad Airport ."
Cons: "Food . Seats. Entertainment - half the time , the touch screen doesn’t work."
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth; Plane was clean; Flight departed on time;"
Cons: "Flight arrived late for no obvious reason; Crew was good but not as good as what I have experienced in the past with Qatar and other airlines"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Lack of diversity with the area crew. It would be good to have some Black area crew staff."
Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."

Cons: "Great staffs and food service."
Pros: "Wonderful airline! Very nice and friendly staff. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "The plan was very hot and made the experience less than desirable."
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Cons: "The boarding process was strange, with one guy directing several different zones to stand in line, people not cooperating and just overrall not very organized."
Pros: "The flight attendents were chilled. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "The food is much tastier in business class. Used to be better in economy, but that has changed."
Pros: "On time. food were good in general."
Cons: "Complimentary hotel for 10 hours layover is needed whether or not if it's an economic passenger. Air stewardess can improve basic English pronounciation of English is her / his second language."
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"
Pros: "One of the best flights in the past 5 years! 5 gold star service!"
Cons: "Wonderful friendly and helpful crew and check in staff. Excellent food and service. On time departure and arrival. Help with bags during the check in process."
Pros: "Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Gate security at Doha was too disorganized - could have let passengers know put everything in bag instead of at last minute having to put wallet, passport, etc in open bin and be afraid it would get stolen or misplaced."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."
Pros: "New planes, Excellent Service"
Cons: "Meals could have been better"
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Cons: "The guy on the second flight was a bit creepy"

Pros: "Excellent food and serving"
Pros: "Friendly staff at boarding and on flight. Very attentive."
Cons: "Food was not as nice as other airlines and my 11 yo daughter was only provided normal adult meal. For full service airline actually went thirsty - constant water should be a given."
Cons: "Queuing in the sky bridge reminds me of boarding a budget carrier. Birmingham needs expansion to be seriously considered a major international airport."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment and the service was exceptional."
Pros: "The departure & arrival time. A fantastic price that included an excellent meal there and back, 30k luggage quota, entertainment that lasted throughout the duration of the flight.

Pros: "I like the aircraft itself, so far pilots are well professionally trained. I feel safe riding in your aircraft."
Cons: "The food is not good. I chose chicken but unfortunately no chicken only small mashed potatoes and gravy and when I asked for another one the crew said no more chicken lol.So I skipped 1 meal"

Pros: "Overall a good experience. Flight did not appear to be overlong,mostly due to ambience in"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Plane was almost full, had a spare seat in the middle. Meals were good. Staff were run off their feet but coped well."
Cons: "The flight from Brisbane to Dubai then to Barcelona was excellent compared to the return flight from Dubai. Dubai to Brisbane flight, seats were very uncomfortable, seat cushions were hard. Toilets ran out of paper and hand towels, I had to Inform a staff member. Cabin had a peculiar odour."

Cons: "Long flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Cons: "Very poor food menu selection. For an airlines like emirates getting even the basics for Vegetarian mean was missing. A wrap offered was no where close to edible feeling. in AVML meal ordered what was offered was Pathai Noodles and some oriental vegetable preparations with Indian Achaar. didnt make any combination what so ever."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Pros: "Good food, pretty nice staff. Entertainment options were plentiful too. Seats were fine also."

Pros: "The plane was wonderful. Even in Economy, the seats were very comfortable with lots of room, both leg and seat. It felt like I was in Business Class of any other airline I've been on."
Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "First time flying in double decker plon"
Cons: "I would have been happy to receive points for travel on star alliance"
Pros: "Everything...food and staffs were great"
Pros: "I love the wide variety of beverages. I also enjoyed how many times they passed through the cabin to offer us drinks."
Cons: "I have been on the newer planes and the TV functionality is great. However, the older versions have poor quality TVs with horrible functionality. The touch screen does not respond to your finger and sometimes you can't even get the remote to work. They definitely need to update the technology on all planes."
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."
Pros: "Before we can reserve Child food while selecting the seats now no more, can this option be available again."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."

Cons: "The delay in the return leg but all in the interest of safety so no complaints. Wifi in Dubai airport good be better"
Pros: "Variety and choice of media entertainment was superb. Enjoyed the food and service."
Cons: "1. Flight entertainment was not working from Singapore to Brisbane only me and my partner seat was not working, I know cabin crew not able to fix it, no apology given to us, said "we can not do anything at the moment", offered me to choose between bottle of wine from business class or 10% off voucher for duty free, poor compensation 2. Flight entertainment was not working AGAIN from brisbane to melbourne, 3. 2pax 20kg allowance for baggage with us, however we did have only 1 bag which 25kg, from brisbane to melbourne in airport, they did accept our baggage from brisbane to melbourne without charging, and did not mention suppose to pay for extra. from Melbourne, they did not allow us to drop our baggage for complimentary, had to explain aboout our allowance and happen from brisbane they did not listen what we try to explain. ( 28th Jan 2016, 10am ish, there were 1 eldest gentleman, and 30ish aged lady) =never happen before with other airline like cathay, singapore,korean,emirates,etihad...etc So, if we took Emirate I believe it won't happened, because it was "QANTAS" very poor service, poor equipment in flight as well. what a shame Qantas is only one of full service airline in Australia."
Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."
Pros: "Window seat on my own. Landed early."
Cons: "Direct flight to Melbourne."
Cons: "Qantas is always delayed leaving"

Cons: "Always a pleasure to fly with qantas"
Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys."

Pros: "The service was really good"
Cons: "My bag was broken when it came off the plane so I wasn’t happy about that."
Pros: "Service fantastic"
Cons: "Food was a bit ordinary but on a short flight understandable"
Pros: "We eventually got to our destination safely although very stressed"
Cons: "The plane from Sydney to Brisbane was awful. The section where we were seated had a permanent cover over the windows, ours and others near us, over a large section. This was really claustrophobic. It was like being in a closed in tin can. It should be disclosed that the window seat is not a window seat so you have the option to change to somewhere else. The seats are really quite cramped. A huge delay"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient and on time - flight was exceptionally smooth and arrival in Brisbane was 45 minutes early - keep up yjr good schedule"
Cons: "Not much to mention at this point - all good"
Pros: "Qantas staff unfailingly helpful and courteous."
Cons: "A more suitable lunch that could be eaten more easily , the quiche in a fidley box and nothing to w eat it on was trying."
Pros: "Helpful staff, well informed"
Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. There was provision for iPads in the backs of the seat, but none provided. There were drop down TVs but the audio was not working. Had I known in advance that this would be the case, I would have been able to prepare my own device and headphones."
Pros: "Complimentary Inflight drink and the effort from crew to accommodate English second language passengers in my row."
Cons: "I could not eat the food"
Pros: "Entertainment for the kids Healthy food The crew were great and interactive"
Cons: "Too much pressure for the ears"
Cons: "Qantas mucked up my seating and then tried to tell me maybe it was just my use of the booking system."

Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"
Pros: "Great entertainment and new release movies. Food was great"
Cons: "The man in front kept jamming his chair into my knees just so he could get back as far as he could, despite the only thing stopping this was my actual legs, when I tried to explain that he got a little abusive. Iv got got some light bruising on my right knee. Food was better then expected and am happy to fly Qantas again"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, boarding was efficient, and in-flight service was unobtrusive."
Cons: "To be honest, I really wish Qantas would include Bejewelled in their games offerings."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "Food, I cannot get an option to have a Cheese platter. The food has been prepared too far in advance and is tasteless and full or preservatives."

Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I hadn't had time to organize Australian currency before flying from Beijing. The flight from Sydney to Brisbane did not take credi card."
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so being tall this was very much appreciated"
Cons: "no problems"
Pros: "Snack and Qantas Entertainment app"
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 8 hours. Flight was to leave at 6.20am but left at 2.30pm. My whole day wasted. Very trying and begin in the airport at 4.00am for reporting and this happens.."
Pros: "Qantas Launge"
Pros: "I didn't ask for any upgrades, but the ground crew were attentive enough to offer me a direct flight back which was 30 minutes earlier. Everything was perfect. Food, seats, entertainment. Can't complain about anything."
Cons: "Not much of a biggie, but one of the middle aged lady flight attendant was a little rude. Perhaps had a bad passenger before serving me."
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "The Singapore Qantas lounge is well set up, despite one or two small issues. Boarding was easy after the usual Singapore gate lounge procedures. On board the crew (led by Brigita) could not have been better. I LOVE the 1 -2 - 1 business configuration. Meals and refreshments on board were just great and I enjoyed that the crew didn't disturb me (Emirates are particularly rude in this regard) when it was clear I was sleeping until descent."
Cons: "Qantas, being an Australian airline, I am clueless as to why, in the airline lounge: Australian Sauvignon Blancs are not available (NZ phewee!) Bundaberg Rum (Ozzie icon) is not available. For a major hub, it is also not clear why a separate business lounge doesn't operate."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No announcement when it was late."
Cons: "Small plane and short flight so given a small snack but no entertainment."
Pros: "Lacks a bar and for that reason is a touch behind Virgin Australia internationally. Great seats though"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "boarding and unloading are nightmares. They really should load the planes back to front and if someone has a connecting flight, they should be allowed to unload first."
Pros: "The seating, the comfort, the entertainment, the complimentary food, the drinks. Everything was great with American Airlines."
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin was delayed 2-1/2 hours. So we missed our connecting flight to SJC. Instead of flying back at 5:15 PM we flew back at 8:13 PM. But that flight didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They rerouted us to fly into SFO which is about 1-1/2 hours further than SJC from our house. Not good!"
Cons: "The sound didn't work on my entire row for the in flight entertainment; it made for a long flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Sometimes it’s not airlines fault. Not 100% clear on who was at fault. Toilets apparently water wasn’t working on aircraft. Upon landing at BNA a baggage guy attempted to rush us because flight was late and needed to get back to ORD. With no consideration for over 2hrs waiting"
Pros: "I have never experienced as smooth a landing on both legs of the trip. I’ve never flown American before and in comparison to other air lines I think they must have the most experienced pilots. Everything else was equal in quality to other US airlines I’ve flown, the usual stuff on long distance flights - but I felt the staff were a notch above the others as regards friendliness and helpfulness. I had a very smooth trip, no delays or problems. I will fly with them again."
Cons: "Bathroom on the plane could have used a good cleaning."
Cons: "Short flight there was no entertainment but that’s ok"
Cons: "Not sure why it was a Finn-Air flight when it was an AA plane and crew?"
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "My console did not work for the entire flight, including the overhead light and hellp/call button. The screen in front of my seat displayed error messages for the entire flight of 8 hours, from the time I got into my seat until after landing. I asked the crew about it before take off. Nothing they did fixed it, not could the screen be turned off completely to avoid scrolling messages for 8+hours. During the flight I was told it couldn't be fixed until after landing. In that case why wasn't it taken care of before my flight ever started? Anyone inspecting the plane properly in between the previous flight and mine would have and should have seen the same error messages on the screen I saw, and resolved it then. ''Hot'' food in the main meal was salty and lukewarm. Also irritating that flights for 3 people booked 5 months ahead of take off with no option for us to choose seats should end up with 3 separate seats at opposite ends of the plane. Should automatically assign seats together for people booking that far out, on a first come first serve basis or allow seat assignment at time of booking by the customer. This flight was about the typical experience most passengers have come to expect from companies who have too much power and really don't care about the customers they are supposed to serve. This is not a reflection of the actual crew on the flight itself, they were average, not bad, but not great."
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, the crew was really nice (and it didn't hurt that they were generous with the wine)."
Cons: "Despite being listed as vegans, we were not provided with vegan meals. When pointed out to the staff, we were given a small packet of soy crackers."
Pros: "on time, quiet trip, lots of entertainment to chose from. if you like to eat and get alot of beverages you'll love this flight"
Cons: "had to do pre-clearance security screening before getting to the states and no notice given. This takes twice as long and if you don't get to the gate by a certain time you don't get to your flight. Thankfully we were at the airport 2.5 hours early and it saved us!!"
Pros: "Staff was great. choice of food/beverages."
Cons: "The people in front of us were having a party all night during the quiet period."
Pros: "On time, efficient, new plane. No troubles."
Pros: "New plane, all kinds of entertainment choices including new movies, great flight crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "American check in software was down when we got to the airport. Created a very large line. Did not delay boarding, even though passengers still had to go through customs before reaching the departure gates. Had a bit of jog to make sure I was able to get on the plane."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Poor service and food quality for having paid for business class. Cabin crew more focused on their own convenience than the customers."
Cons: "The Video on Demand service for movies, TV, and Music would skip every 10 to 20 seconds, jumping forward about 2 or 3 seconds at a time...making videos unwatchable. This was a problem for my seat, the two in front of me, and apparently many other seats on the flight."
Pros: "Lots of movies. Constant trash collection and drink service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Dirty bathrooms."
Pros: "We appreciated that American Airlines found us two seats together for the long Dublin-Chicago leg of our journey."
Pros: "Food was good as were the movies & seat"
Cons: "Gate supervisor (male) in Dublin was unhelpful. He announced theee times that the US Customes pre-clearance would close shortly. This announcement was in the gate area where everyone had already had to have cleared the Preclearance US Customs. Then when he announced boarding for priority and Business class he "pointedly" told the zones 1 thru 4 to all begin boarding at once (w/ one agent while three agents stood behind chatting) and to only use the one Priority lane. Thirty people all gathered for the very slow process. The Gate Supervisor the says he would start boarding Zones 5 and 6 in the other lane. Zones 5 & 6 all boarded while I (zone 1 passenger) and five others were still in que boarding thru the priority lane. Poor leadership. The Business Class flight attendant while serving snack, spilled my hot tea on my shirt, trousers and iPad. She was very apologetic and said that she wished she had not filled the cup so full. The tea "happens" and was no big deal. The Gate agent on the microphone in Dublin was having a bad morning and transferred his unhappyness to me, which I did not bargain for on the 27th."
Pros: "Nothing it did not exist"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight without telling me"
Pros: "Friendly crew made a long international flight with a 14 month old as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for the most part friendly crew, with one exception. Flight left right on time and landed with no extra time to taxi. That was a welcomed benefit."
Cons: "No wifi on plane and no individual tv's for movie selections. Also had to pay extra for an aisle seat. Could not select seat at time of purchase. Didn't know if I called Iberia or American to make seat selection. Confusing with two different flight numbers. One from Iberia and one from American. Passengers should be made aware of which airline they are flying on at time of purchase."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good crew, no other problems."
Cons: "Several video system restarts and my arm rest USB and audio jack randomly stopped working for the whole flight. Lots of people had no video screen working too. Food tasted good but had so many chemicals in it that I had digestive issues the whole flight from both meals."
Pros: "I wish I could remember the names of our flight attendants- but they were wonderful and really took time to get to know passengers! They were so friendly and went above and beyond in any of our requests. Loved them!"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have individual screens for such a long flight, but I wouldn't say that's a complaint. The flight was fine."
Pros: "Everything! Leg room"
Cons: "The touch screen for entertainment was maddening!"
Pros: "I liked that a pilot of the flight was a woman."
Cons: "First, the gate staff in Dublin called my name to assure my bag was arriving to JFK. They assured it is! Guess what! The bag never arrived and was stock in London!"
Pros: "The service and the food was great and getting to watch new release movies was a pleasant bonus"
Cons: "We did not get the seats we purchased but we did get a refund"
Pros: "loved the movie selection and how nice the crew was"
Cons: "The fact that my party was seated in different areas of the plane."
Pros: "ON TIME!!!!! Nice folks, smooth and safe."
Cons: "Got through the extensive security lines to USA one hour before scheduled departure and looked at the screen which said 'final boarding' which was not true and made us panic a bit, running for the gate. It did board and leave on time but not an hour early. This flight was night and day different than our ORD to Dublin flight of 5.12.17 which was 5 hours delayed and do stressful."
Cons: "We didn't fly Finnair. All of my emails said Finnair and then when arrived at the Finnair counter they didn't have my family registered. After some panicking, we were told to try American Airlines. That is who we flew with, not Finnair"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Wish the plane had been equipped with personal entertainment screens on the seatbacks."
Cons: "Lousy food. Cramped seats, try to make you pay extra for seats to sit together,"
Cons: "Plane was falling apart. Food served frozen cold. Entertainment was commercials then nothing for hours. Crew was a mess and rude. Flight from hell."
Pros: "The access ramp lessen the risk of tripping over I've experienced with the steps in the past."
Cons: "Corny jokes from the male cabin crew don't improve the flight in experience, we're crammed in like cattle and given a LTA meal and coffee."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "No leg room, tight."
Pros: "Individual TV. Price."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Flight attendants were equally bad. Only one attendant was helpful and accommodating. They act like they don't like being there. Need to take lessons from Emirites Airlines. Or Swiss Air. Or even Ethiopian Airlines. Just smile. Be genuinely nice. This bunch were grumpy, conceded, and unfriendy."
Pros: "Got an economy extra seat without upgrading, had a variety of snacks and service extras which were nice"
Cons: "Was never asked for dietary restrictions so no vegetarian meals were available, pretty old aircraft to be flying that route, no seat back entertainment"
Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."
Cons: "No personal screens on each seat-,makes international flight very long."
Cons: "Felt like an old domestic flight. No Wifi and screens in the center that are hard to see from the window seats."
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "Available drinks"
Cons: "Poor selection and no coffee"
Pros: "We had a safe flight."
Cons: "If we wanted to fly on an old American Airlines plane, we wouldn't have purchased a British Airways ticket. Deceiving and unfair."
Pros: "The captain and the flight attendants were very communicative and kept in touch with the cabin at regular intervals but not intrusive."
Cons: "There were 2 meal choices., one was chicken and one vegetarian curry/rice dish. Clearly the chicken would be the most sought after meal and the flight attendant even suggested the possibility that everyone would not get their first choice, and ofcourse they didn't. We had a group of 10 traveling and by the time some of,our group was served the chicken was gone. Our daughter was 7 months pregnant and was one who didn't get a chicken meal. I don't understand why the airline would not provide an adequate amount of meals that would apply to the masses. Only a few vegetarian to fill in for specific diets would be expected. We all felt this was poor planning on the part of the airline catering company.."
Pros: "Upon sitting down, I was able to fall asleep almost instantly. The helpful stewardesses were constantly aware of my needs."
Cons: "Check-in desk seemed confused and unorganized. Two very friendly ladies were helping out but were on different wavelengths."
Pros: "The food was very good! Chicken and mashed potatoes with broccoli was very tasty! A very small salad, a seeded bun, cheese and crackers and apple crumble rounded out the meal. Later pretzels and the grilled cheese and blueberry pastry. Pillow and blanket nice."
Cons: "Movies hard to hear with provided ear buds. I tried three and gave up."
Pros: "Size of plane On time departure Meal choices were excellent Entertainment choices were excellent"
Cons: "That this became an American Airlines flight after booking and no one from either airline contacted us to tell us. We couldn't find the Finnair flight anywhere and came to figure out that American was handling this flight."
Pros: "It left on time, the cabin crew were very nice, they kept us well fed. The pilot didn't hit any pot holes. No annoying children. We didn't realize that we would have to go thru US customs at the Dublin airport, That added another big chunk of time to reach the boarding gate. We made it with 20 minutes to spare. On the plus side, we could just breeze thru the US side and leave the airport."
