Pros: "Surprised it was as good as it was having read so much negative news about what British Airways had become"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection. However I waited in line for an hour and a half, maybe I was lucky because I was near the beginning of the line. There was only one person for awhile helping re route people."

Pros: "Pre clearance in Dublin Lounge Seat facilities"

Pros: "Flew business class for the first time with Aer Lingus. The crew are friendly and helpful. The food on board was top quality."
Cons: "The lie flat seats in business class are not very comfortable. Especially in the straight up position. The entertainment system is pretty bad and the choice of movies, tv etc is very poor. The complimentary WiFi only worked occasionally. Can not understand how Aer Lingus claim to be a 4* airline."

Pros: "Direct flight and preclearance completed in Dublin"
Cons: "Not a great seat, back middle; poor food"

Pros: "Uneventful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."

Pros: "the immigration in Dublin and the connection services in Dublin"
Cons: "I booked extra space seats and then they changed the plane and moved us in regular seats. We talked to a person from Air Lingus and he said it happens often but there's nothing to do. on board, the head sets are very old and you could only hear from one ear using the head set provided by Air Lingus. in 2018 ?! seriously !?"

Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."

Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"

Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"

Pros: "The flight was nearly empty. Never had that silent, and peaceful flight. Everyone found there space and fell asleep."

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "Too cold"

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: "Crew polite. Seats comfy."
Cons: "One person checking boarding cards at gate led to a ridiculously long queue for a nearly full flight and made it late getting us all on the plane and passengers were getting annoyed. Then whatever machinery Aer Lingus use to push the plane back from the gate actually got stuck on the plane cone leading to another delay. Knock on was we were made to wait for a take off slot and made to wait for a landing slot at Heathrow so late arriving."

Pros: "Reilly dolly"
Cons: "The other trolley dolly"

Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."

Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Cons: "..."

Pros: "They were really good with my daughter who was very scared of flying"

Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"

Pros: "Everything except the amt of room"

Pros: "Staff ruth, no asistent help, no staff on airport of rayanner in Dublin, dirty flor inside of plane I will never ever never never travel with Rayanner Slow slow service with both/ cheek in and boarding"
Cons: "No good coustumer service I will make sure non of my famili or friend not gone travel with rayaner OTHER COMPANY MUCH BETTER THEN RAYANER PAYING LITTEL EXTRA BUT NEVER WITH RAYANER 2 TIEMS AND SOO DISAPOINT"

Pros: "I was comfortable enough to fall asleep before takeoff. No long lines or waiting"

Pros: "All was perfect"

Cons: "Plane was full of noisy school rugby children"

Pros: "Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat by door very uncomfortable"

Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Delayed. Confusion over gates."

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "The ground crew was very helpful before boarding."
Cons: "Delayed announcement could be done a little earlier before boarding time, not after it was past the boarding time."

Pros: "Seat was all sticky and I had to clean it"

Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "Well it is a low cost airline, you get what you pay for"

Pros: "Seat not too cramped. We didn't get lost - as BA flight did recently!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed! Info re delay was limited."

Cons: "Late takeoff - late arrival"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"

Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."

Pros: "No frills but got us there safely on time."
Cons: "Had to walk on the Tarmac."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."

Pros: "The price, and that’s it."
Cons: "The airline had hidden regulations that if you are a first time customer will cost you way more than you think. Just be carefull"

Pros: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"

Cons: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"

Cons: "Very long walk on landing"

Pros: "Staff is young and energetic! Beat crew on trip so fat and we've been on three other planes."
Cons: "Seats are eat too close if you are,tall. The landing was a,3,out of 10."

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."

Cons: "Flight was very late.(over 2 hours) Notices not posted timeously No meal tokens offered, or anything else to soften the irritation Boarding and offloading by stairs into the rain - cheapest possible options."

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Cabin crew is pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Two days in a row the gate operations seemed disorganized. My flight from London to Dublin was over an hour late, and then my return flight from Dublin to London was also an hour late today."

Pros: "Wish the back of the seats in front of me had the pocket to hold things."
Cons: "Tap water offer would be appreciated. Too bad the checked bag price is so high that everyone brings what they can onboard which fills up all the overhead storage. Tickets that are bought together should be seated together if possible and not just randomly assigned."

Pros: "737 800 plane much more comfortableScramble at boarding."
Cons: "Load in numerical order by ordering passengers to line up in that order"

Pros: "i made my flight and saved a lot of money."
Cons: "i was shocked that i had to pay for water."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"

Pros: "Was cheap"
Cons: "Was very late"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The customer service agent was horribly rude. When asked her name, because she wasn't wearing a name tag, she said "Oh, you'd like my name? I'll be sure to write it down for you." I never ended up getting her name, but the way she treated me and my fiancé - as two customers that were very much over paying - was inappropriate and unprofessional. Never again will I fly RyanAir."

Cons: "We have never flown Ryan Air before and are not from Europe. We booked or flight one day prior to the flight and were shocked to show up at the airport and pay 90 euro to check in at the airport. This is simply a price gouge. I understand a small, nominal fee for this but not 90 euro! That is asinine. I will purposely avoid Ryan Air in the future as this leaves a bad taste in my mouth."

Cons: "I was told next time I have to be careful with my carry-on because I'd have to pay £50 otherwise. However, my carry-on is TSA approved, it has a lot of pockets so it may appear to be a bit bigger but I don't overstuff and I've had no issue getting my bag into the overhead bin. Granted, the officer was kind when she said it, but I also measured my bag and weighed it before my flight and I shouldn't feel there should be an issue with my bag. On my return flight I had souvenirs in my bag (meaning more in my SAME bag) and no one said a word about my carry-on."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable It was late"

Cons: "In order to ride the plane, I have to walk outside. It is very cold."

Cons: "Cramped seats did not recline; all drinks, including water, had to be paid for; plane did not have a jet bridge and passengers had to walk up and down stairs to embark and disembark. This airline takes No Frills to an entirely new level."

Pros: "The price is the main reason to fly. It was on time and efficient. Would definitely ride this airline again."
Cons: "Restrictions on baggage made me have to rearrange. Nothing major, just a slight inconvenience."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "My wife & I had our flight departure delayed by an hour due to overcrowding of planes & our arrival was delayed by 30 minutes for the same reason. Also, the seats were cramped & they didn't recline."

Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"

Pros: "Gave 1 star for food & entertainment as didn't buy food and of course too short for entertainment Would fly again with Ryan Air if they didn't insist on a printer boarding pass, too difficult."
Cons: "Having to print out a boarding pass is almost impossible when travelling as no access to a printer. The check-in area at Dublin as poor signage as I needed to get my booking pass stamped & passports checked The seats didn't recline & because I am not tall the head rest curve pushes my head forward (on most planes) have gap behind neck so very uncomfortable only helped by reclining seat. Boarding messy as no seat order called hence isles blocked, most planes load back seats first keeping isles free, this plane had back & front stair gangways but weren't told."

Pros: "Price - boarding was good, especially considering plane was full."
Cons: "Punctuality - about 40 mins late both ways - I kinda factor that in now!!"

Pros: "The price was right. ...at least until I figured out that my checked bag cost twice as much as my airfares ticket!"
Cons: "I think maybe I should have flown on Aer Lingus instead. Next time I will do more research. Absolutely nothing is free on Ryan. The only free thing is your carry on bag. Food, drinks, prearranged seat assignment, etc. all cost money."

Pros: "Staff was nice and flight was efficient."
Cons: "A lot of hidden fees were frustrating and flight was cramped and felt like a sales pitch."

Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and fairly smooth."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you have to pay extra for EVERYTHING! For a boarding pass, for any luggage (other than a small carry-on), for a seat assignment and for a cup of tea on the plane, The flight is relatively inexpensive, but you end up paying a lot of money for the"

Pros: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."

Pros: "Cheap, quick, and safe flight."
Cons: "Because the tickets are so cheap, they try to get money out of you at every turn! They charged us $20 each to print our boarding passes at the airport (it wasn't enough to have them on our phones)! They make you pay to check a bag and you have to arrange it ahead of time (cannot ask to do it at the airport). They made a big fuss about the sizes of our bags and threatened to charge up to $55 per bag if they needed to check them at the gate! They have tiny compartments at the gate but our bags fit without any issues on the plane itself."

Pros: "boarding was on time and no delays on the tarmac"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "It was way to small, no room. Rough take off and landing"

Pros: "The flight was very late and then the gate information came up almost as the flight was boarding."
Cons: "Lack of boarding information"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They will hit you for more money every chance they get. Checked baggage. Not printing boarding pass prior to getting to the airport."

Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was quick."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks. But I expected that so it was fine."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, especially the employees"

Pros: "We arrived to our destinations, and so did our bags. Good! And crew were all friendly."
Cons: "But this budget airline feels so in every sense. Boarding is from Tarmac, even coffee or tea costs checked bag, and weight limits are low, boarding is chaotic, no flight entertainment... By the time we paid for all our bags and did the whole dance of moving items from bag to bag to meet limits, we could have probably picked a better airline and had more comfort. They have a policy to charge for musical instruments, and even though there was space, on our return flight we were forced to check it, which we mostly try to avoid for safety of instrument...the way out no issue, the way back we got a stickler. Overall, for single travelers who don't care where you sit and just have a small bag, go for it. Trying to shoehorn a family of four plus instrument led to several up charges and annoying encounters at airport. I'll avoid next time."
