Top airlines flying Dublin to London Gatwick
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding was super easy - but then I did pay extra for Priority."
Cons: "If you don't order food in advance, there's only the snack menu available, which is very limited and poor quality. Also, the cabin staff basically ignore you, while offering a range of goodies, at different times, to those who did order in advance."
Pros: "Good legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour"
Pros: "Free wifi was great!"
Cons: "機内食 35ユーロのコスパが全くない"
Pros: "brand new plane, simple check in, good food, nice entertainment, comfy seats"
Cons: "Truly, I can't think of anything"
Pros: "Left right on time with an efficient service."
Cons: "Delay, rude service, ran out of food for vegetarians"
Cons: "Carry on luggage had to be put below AGAIN as there wasn’t room in overhead lockers. Then had to wait 25mins for luggage at carousel."
Pros: "good space, especially with 3 seats to myself;)"
Cons: "-my monitor/screen did not work (many others too) until they rebooted the whole system after at least 45 minutes into the flight -no food, no snack, no drink"
Cons: "If the crew could have made sure at boarding that passengers uses the right doors to enter the aircraft , that could have avoided passengers walking over each other"
Pros: "Really pleased they fly to Austin,Texas direct from London. They give a very cost effective alternative to BA. We upgraded to Premium for a reasonable fee. We liked the masses of leg room but on a night flight it is impossible for the middle/window passenger to escape as all seats are back with footrests extended. The cabin crew were very good. The plane was new and very clean. Roast beef salad for breakfast was tasty if unusual."
Cons: "Low cost premium is rare, and some cost cutting is understandable. That said....Premium seats weren’t that comfortable. I’m not too tall (6 feet) but they didn’t support my back well. There was no music entertainment so ensure you bring your own. There is plenty of power. The film selection is the same in both directions and pretty limited. Not a problem if you are sleeping though. Note: When upgraded you don’t seem to get all your prepaid extras refunded and we couldn’t choose our seats in Premium. There is no business lounge in Austin. (There was in Gatwick). The Norwegian app never linked to my reservation automatically. Some synchronisation work required there. Unlike other premium flights the drinks service was pretty limited. I didn’t enjoy eating out of a cardboard box, but the food was tasty."
Pros: "Board crew were pleasent and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was dirty."
Pros: "On time and very comfortable"
Pros: "Fact that I eventually made it home a day later"
Cons: "The airline company and if I can avoid it in the future, I will not take this airline again!"
Cons: "Only graded one star for last two as short ball NA"
Pros: "Staff was pleasantly helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Window seat was uncomfortable, and plane was hot,as if the a/c was turned off."
Pros: "Crew was polite. Entertainment system was acceptable."
Cons: "While Purchasing our tickets, it was not made clear that our bags and meals need to be paid for separately. Once we got on the plane, there was an option to bye food however most of the food was unavailable on our flight. The only thing we could purchase on a 7 hr flight was chips and corn nuts."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Staff were not friendly. I specifically heard one attendant who had swapped out a meal for a passenger say out loud "she didn't like her vegan meal so she wanted another one" in front of the passenger. I found that rude and accusing. I know I did not pay for food and I expected that. However, I think that's a bit austere for a 10 hour flight. Not even water offered for non-paying passengers. I don't know how you expect people to be healthy and ok on such a long flight without water.. Will not be flying Norwegian again."
Pros: "Quick flight. Fast boarding Good choice of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was freezing With three people sitting together, it is definitely cramped. Staff aren’t as friendly."
Pros: "The flight was fast"
Cons: "Horrible people doing the check-in for the flight Very stricted with weight so they can charge you horribly high prices for their benefit Very arrogant Delayed flights Not offered even water if you hadn’t booked meals Very expensive snack bar prices and can only pay by card Worst airline ever with the most abusive and arrogant staff"
Pros: "I recieved emails informing me of possible disruption to travel to and from airport ie road congestion & weather conditions and recommendations to avoid delays which I thought was a very helpful service."
Cons: "We didn't pre order food but understood snacks could be ordered during flight. The sandwiches had all sold soon after we departed New York. We were lucky enough to buy the last fruit salad. We had nothing else to eat for the entire journey. We booked hand luggage only. Obtaining a boarding pass electronically for myself and my partner was impossible. On the fourth attempt I booked myself in individually and was successfully. I then booked in my partner successfully.We tried to go through departures armed with our boarding pass but we're refused entry. We were redirected back to Norwegian main check in to obtain a happy face stamp on our boarding pass which is obtained after the weight of the luggage has been checked. Unfortunately this means that instead of going straight through departures with hand luggage only we had to go to the main Check in anyway. I agree with checking weight of hand luggage but the process could be improved greatly."
Pros: "Quick flight. Good entertainment Quite spacious Quick boarding."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Not including food Staff aren’t as friendly as other airlines experienced."
Cons: "Seats too small in economy"
Pros: "The flight from Boston to Gatwick was most pleasant - plenty of leg-room in Economy Class. The food was somewhat mediocre, especially the snack served at breakfast-time. Overall, however, a very good five and a half hour journey."
Pros: "Economy Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Information about system for ordering food was very problematic. I was not informed that I needed to order food 3 online days in advance. I tried to order it while checking in online because I realised only at that point that it was likely I would have to order in advance...I was charged but did not receive what I ordered. One crew member was nice, the others were not. When checking in at the airport the staff desk attendant was very rude. Too many hidden costs. Paying for extras like food and luggage does not make the price economical."
Pros: "The film selection was good."
Cons: "Delays with very little information. Cramped plane. Unprofessional staff. No free refreshments. Bad website and faulty app. A budget airline to be avoided."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours but it was quite well handled by the crew"
Cons: "Wheelchair was not boardedit first and was not brought to the gate on landing. We were not assigned seats near front until I complained North hot food available on flight Seats cramped"
Pros: "Great leg room considering it's a short flight."
Cons: "Rude staff."
Pros: "Just all in all, a really decent flight. The airplane was clean and tidy, staff were polite and I was really impressed with the free wifi. The flight was comfortable and I was able to get a little power nap in before we landed!"
Cons: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Pros: "I received a meal and a breakfast to go for no additional charge."
Cons: "I booked a Norwegian airlines flight but it was actually run by another airline. The movie selection was bad and the touch screen did not work very well. The seat were cramped and they did not pass out blankets."
Pros: "The comfortable seats"
Cons: "Being separated from my friend across an aisle"
Pros: "Norwegian is bare bones, but this flight on the Dreamliner is very comfortable. It ‘helped’ that the delay meant lots of people cancelled and there was a lot of spare space on board."
Cons: "It’s a long flight with no drinks... but with Norwegian you know what you sign up for! Water is $3. The 5 hour delay left something to be desired, but Norwegian texted me early so I knew not to head to the airport."
Pros: "All in all a great flight both there and back. I'd recommend this airline without hesitation. I didn't have a single issue with them. Great plane with all the new gadgets etc, love that the windows could be dimmed for sleep/watching movies. Lots of leg room, bonus for me was that both flights I had nobody next to me so I was also able to lie down! Shopping system worked great, every time I ordered I received my food/drink within minutes. Boarding was carried out in number order and worked well as they give themselves loads of time. There was no backlog of passengers waiting for that one person (there is always one!) to arrange their overhead space perfectly!! Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Overall good service with timely information."
Cons: "50 minutes delay. The message from Kayak update stated terminal B and I needed to go all the way to Terminal A with luggage. A bit of exercise!"
Pros: "Quick flight on which I was able to sleep most of the way and wake up at 6am in uk. Good entertainment offering that I didn't use. No food but worked well with my sleeping."
Cons: "Lack if food might not suit all and should be made mire obvious. I nearly missed it but once aware covered it very successfully."
Pros: "The price point, relatively efficient, good baggage of you shop around for the right fare ie, kayak etc. Comfortable seat and similar leg room to BA/Virgin economy for a much lower price."
Cons: "The food quality wasn't great on the supplied meals, the best option is to buy at the airport and take onboard. Delayed flight almost guaranteed. No IFE on our flight home apart from a few TV shows. No movies. Crew are hit or miss with the quality. Some are good, some are not so good or welcoming. Gate staff/set up wasn't great and not much information about the delayed departure given out."
Pros: "The cabin crew were personable and professional. The seats were comfortable and there was a good amount of leg room."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment was not working. Within 40 minutes of take off, hot snacks were no longer available. Poor distribution of seats - many people (not travelling together) were seated 3 in a row yet several people had 3 seats to themselves. Captain did not address the one hour delay with an apology or an explanation."
Pros: "Very pleasant folk on-board. Comfortable new plane"
Cons: "Staff didn't manage boarding well with the result that people were standing for long periods waiting needlessly in a queue. The entertainment system broke down which on a 7 hour flight is not a trivial loss. The flight was one hour delayed in departing, although it did make up some of that time over the Atlantic."
Cons: "I was running late for my flight home to Dublin I had 40 minutes until the flight was due to take off. The guy on check in was extremely rude and sent me off in an awful panic to my gate. It was an emotional parting with my partner as I won't see him again for a few months and this very rude employee didn't help at all This was my second flight with Norwegian in the space of a few weeks and I could very well be a regular flyer as my partner is in Sweden for the foreseeable future. This guy gave an awful representation of your airline. People get delayed these things happen he wasnt one bit nice about it and I was very unhappy how I was treated"
Pros: "The crew was fun, helpful and nattily dressed. The entertainment is all free and plentiful."
Cons: "There was no food available with more than half of the flight left."
Cons: "The fact that my husband and I were one of the first people to check in, four hours ahead of boarding, yet we were not even asked or told that we were being allotted seats in the row closest to the toilet- had we been told that at the time of checking in by the customer rep, we would have had the chance to request for a seat change as both of us were unable to sleep at all."
Cons: "I was charged $65 for a carry on that they wouldn't allow me to carry and made me check the bag ..."
Pros: "The whole process from Departure to Arrival was one phenomenal experience. Crew was super attentive and very client focused. Norwegian has proven to be a top class service provider and is evidence that low costs and good client service does not have to be mutually exclusive."
Pros: "The plane was nice and cool, and the music was a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats were very crowded, little to no leg room available, and the movies kept crashing every time I tried to watch them."
Cons: "6 hour delay and the worst customer service"
Pros: "Crew were attentive."
Cons: "Front row passengers were loud and inconsiderate the whole way across. Couldn't sleep. Perhaps an announcement to inform passengers to please keep conversation to an appropriate level for most want to sleep would be nice."
Cons: "Delayed. Confusion over gates."
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"
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."
Cons: "It would be amazing to get 30 minutes without trying to sell something and constant use of the microphone for useless promotions. I don't really get on flights so I can buy a watch, a perfume or a scratch card, no need to spend 5 minutes trying to sell it."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled , next flight 2 days later. Only online checking within 24-2hours else 55£ at the airport . Tried to checking online multiple times. Advance checkin online not free , checking at airport 55£ . In Less than 2 Hour before boarding online is not possible anymore. Ryanair counter cannot check you in and you will be sent forth and back to other counters"
Pros: "Cheap & Cheerful, as usual"
Cons: "Delayed Boarding Delayed Taxi Delayed dis-embarking (no dispatcher) just two bus drivers and no unloading of cases o those with mobility issues"
Pros: "Late departure from Dublin as expected But it was 30 min, anyways the flight made up time and only arrived 5 minutes late. The staff were very helpful also"
Cons: "The new slimline seats are very uncomfortable when seated for anything longer than an hour, the cushioning is very light and the angle of the seat is not as comfortable as the old ryanair seats. Also there was a long delay in Ciampino at the baggage belts considering the airport was empty - i know this is more a problem with the Airport but ryanair would surely have enough pull to get this sorted."
Pros: "No frills but got us there safely on time."
Cons: "Had to walk on the Tarmac."
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"
Cons: "Notification of flight cancellation even though the flight departed on twitter. Flight should have been cancelled as no transport links to Dublin Airport due to adverse weather."
Cons: "Both our flights to and from Malta were delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "Everything ok"
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!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seats"
Cons: "The delay."
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."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are not comfortable. I was in a bus at the back and when it arrived at the demarcation door, the driver didn't open all the 3 doors! He only opened the front door beside himself so everyone had to exit by that door."
Pros: "Crew were lovely both at gate and on board. They were very reassuring as the flight was very bumpy for a while due to weather conditions"
Cons: "nothing really would have liked a little more leg room but those seats were booked when I booked mine"
Cons: "Unpunctuality again."
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: "One of the staff in the terminal was friendly and showed us how to weigh our bags and collect the bag tag."
Cons: "Forced to check in online or face a charge. Paid €45 Euros per bag to check in. For Americans traveling between outside countries, Ryan Air has a small area on the boarding pass regarding the "attaining of a visa stamp on the boarding pass, in the baggage drop-off area, prior to boarding the flight." The rest of the boarding pass has other nonsense in larger and highlighted texts, but something as important as obtaining a visa stamp was small and obscure. The gate attendant made a stink about us not having it stamped and was trying to prevent us from boarding because of it. Our response was that no one, at any point, stated we needed a visa stamp on the boarding pass when we checked our luggage in the baggage drop-off area. I've traveled between countries before and have never experienced something like this. Additionally, Ryan Air knew we were Americans since we had to provide our passport numbers abe the country that issued them when we checked in online. You would think that they would have their systems flag Americans so that their employees know to say "hey, I see you're an American. FYI, you need to her a visa stamp on your boarding pass at the baggage drop-off area prior to boarding." Will never use Ryan Air again in my life, regardless of the supposed savings (cause in reality, there are OTHER & BETTER airlines to choose from; don't give crooks business and better to give it to their competitors)."
Pros: "staff in Dublin"
Cons: "Not Ryanair fault but it took over an hour to get our luggage at Edinburgh - no exaggerationas it took 75 min. Baggage staff said they were understaffed"
Cons: "Sitting 10 rows from my wife"
Cons: "They didn't have record that I had paid for extra luggage for my party of 7. Luckily, I had my paperwork so I was able to finally get my luggage on without paying again. The flight bordered 40 minutes late and then sat on the runway for an hour. They was never an announcement as to why. My mother is in a wheelchair. They didn't let her pre-board, and then put her wheelchair through with the luggage. She had to get to the luggage carousel without it. They told her to just walk. Luckily, she can walk a little with help. Yikes, if she was totally disabled."
Pros: "Take off delayed due to some technical issue, but still landed on time, very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendents were a little tough"
Cons: "We paid for a checked bag and the airline made us pay again."
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: "Flight went to plan, no problems boarding and on time."
Cons: "All good."
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: "I love Ryan air prices , my flight was almost on time . Crew very welcoming and helpful , as usual ."
Cons: "For me , don't change Allstate good , thank you ."
Cons: "half hour delay for take off :( sitting in cabin- cant use loos until plane is up... uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew did a fine job. It was a short flight with no problems."
Cons: "The leg room is very tight if you have even moderately long legs."
Pros: "Ticket personnel were very helpful"
Cons: "Flight attendants were less then helpful in all area's ..."
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."
Cons: "Finding our way around the terminal. We finally found the check baggage and checked them. Then we went to security which was at the opposite end of the terminal but we were sent back to baggage to have our boarding passes stamped with the visa stamped. Then it was back to security."
Cons: "Couldn't check in early on the app because of US passport. Nothing directed us to the website, saying we could check in there. 2 hour shift before the flight was looking for a kiosk to check in- they had none. Had to pay $100 euros just to check in at the desk."
Pros: "no delayed, staff helpful"
