Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"
Pros: "Consistent SAS quality"
Cons: "Drinks expensive"
Cons: "Terrible to have to pay 70 Euros when you are an elite gold status member. And no mention of this during booking process and checkin unless you dig in deep via links. Not used to this with other airline partners and likely last time I am flying SAS"
Pros: "On time. Arrive early. Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "More meal options. Only chicken for dinner. I’m vegetarian."
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "One more pass at the end of flight to pick up more trash, to create less work for cleaning crew."
Cons: "More free meal choices"
Cons: "Outstanding service, comfort, food, entertainment options May have been best experience ever flying"
Cons: "Luggage fee were outrageous."
Pros: "Food was good and entertainment system was full of plenty of options to help pass the time"
Cons: "Seat got hard and so little leg room."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and went out of their way to make sure the passengers were well taken care of."
Cons: "Have more books available for passengers who want to read."
Pros: "Everything was bearly acceptable"
Cons: "I asked the stewardess if she could fill my water bottle and was actually told that only one glass of water per person was allowed! Next time I would try Norwegian Air, which is known as a budget airline."
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable seats with good room, complimentary beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "Late leaving, when boarding in CPH had to wait in extremely hot area once past the desk where our boarding passes were scanned and then the area where we had to queue just prior to boarding the plane was glass and therefore extremely hot. The worst issue was that there was one family with extremely loud children with the parents doing nothing. I saw a steward way up the plane looking down at them at one stage while serving another passenger but she did nothing. I like children but this was constant with the father actually encouraging the children to make more noise once he realised that other passengers were annoyed. There were plenty of other children on the plane who were behaving. Although SAS staff were aware of this they did nothing to ensure the comfort of the other passengers. One friend of mine stood for about 40 minutes at the back of the plane and another for about 20 minutes to get away from this constant noise as it was so loud and persistent. I had to listen to music to block it out.SAS staff should have intervened because this was very loud and as I have said constant i.e. every few seconds for most of the flight."
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "boarding was on time, crew were polite, food was great, and the extra cup of tea was really hot"
Pros: "Flight left on time, the plane was clean and comfortable, but the staff could do with some additional training."
Cons: "They did not serve coffee in our table, the cabin crew were abrupt, almost rude, and in my opinion they can do better."
Pros: "The water bottles, pillow, and earbuds were on the seats."
Cons: "The returning flight to the US they did not dim the lights so that it was comfortable to sleep. A red light was shining down on my head most of the trip because I had a window seat. It was very annoying."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take 2 other flights to get to the final destination. Arrived at 9pm instead of 2pm."
Pros: "We were in an empty Plus cabin at front. Coming from Miami, the hot towel service would have been nice. I blinked and missed the service. They will quickly skip you if they can. Food weird. Salmon in a box with no bread or rice or anything and a strange savory muffin. Ate neither. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above. Sorry. Nothing was good. Came in 10 mins early!"
Pros: "Convenience, timely procedures, comfortable seats, plenty tea or coffee"
Cons: "No Entertainment, no snacks included, only tea and coffee"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment"
Pros: "I chose SAS since I have used this airline on most of my travels to Norway. It has been without any problems and I highly recommend it. The staff all try to make you comfortable and do not hesitate to get whatever you ask for. I have no plan to change plane. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office. I know they are very busy like any other airlines but please return our calls and answer questions as we are fully entitled to their attention using their airline. . Thank you."
Cons: "Tried THREE hours to get a phone picked up to cancel my flight the day before this scheduled flight. My friends booked with Expedia the exact itinerary and were able to reach a human and we're told that SAS always reimburses for cancellations. I finally emailed vayamas/kayak to cancel and 5 days later received a reply that there was no cancellation refund. Apparently Kayak provides a no communication/no refund policy. My travel companion had the opposite experience with Expedia."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "1 hour delays and 70 euro bag fee"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Pros: "People food"
Cons: "Seats small"
Pros: "I was able to get to my destination safely b"
Cons: "Planes are old. No conveniences at all - none. Charged for one piece of luggage (my only piece) at the gate. Security process extremely slow. 1.5 hours early to airport and I made it on board by 9 mins. There plane sat for 20 mins on runway before departing."
Pros: "I had a row to myself because I was a 1st class ticket holder but they didn't actually have 1st class seating."
Cons: "Smaller than average seat size."
Cons: "Even though it was clear from my reservation that checked baggage was not included in the initial price, there were no clear links in kayak/vayama or SAS to prepay baggage, and the price is double if you pay at the airport."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew, food was excellent."
Cons: "Seats very cramped"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero leg room, no overhead compartment space. Pinned to the wall in my window seat by an over weight Swedish man sitting beside me. Horrible flight !!!"
Pros: "Traveled business class after winning the upgrade bid. Really felt like there was little room for improvement. The physical set up, the service, the entertainment were all delightful. The privacy, the horizontal sleep option on a 9 hour flight were just special."
Cons: "Felt the food choices needed an upgrade. Fresh is not the only important ingredient."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice selection of movies. The best price at that time."
Cons: "Crew attitude was not pleasant: no smile, no "you're welcome", as they were robots. Food was terrible."
Cons: "Staff was not properly trained in flight protocols."
Cons: "to realise at the airport that they will charge me 70 EUR for one luggage for one way only is outrageous! it wasnt clear at all that there wasnt luggage included in the price of the ticket... all of my previous tickets bought via kayak and priceline were also with luggage included and we have understood the given price as including luggage! i find it very negative and very bad experience and feel robbed, this is not acceptable business approach. my suggestion is that you will refund me the extra cost for the luggage. thank you."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew members not friendly."
Pros: "Great crew. Clean plane. Good food. Entertainment kept us busy especially our 3 year old."
Cons: "I really enjoyed flying with SAS on my way to Stockholm but on my return flight back to DC it was dreadful. Boarding the plane in Stockholm was one of the most unorganized setups I've ever witnessed. Something so simple was made so complicated. Second, their seat recliners go so far back that you barely have space in front of you and can barely see your tv screen. On my previous flight I was in a row where there was no one in front of us so I didn't get to experience the recliner situation. Passengers on the plane were getting into fights. So bad."
Pros: "A perfect service"
Cons: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Pros: "tjis flight was on United Airlines. It was nice and simple"
Cons: "the landinf was ROUGH and The plane was very grimy"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Very hot, small seats"
Cons: "I lost my luggage!!!"
Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"
Cons: "Could not even PAY for an upgrade due to a meal request, even though I brought my own food - and would waive the meal request. Inedible vegetarian meals in flight. Earbuds didn't work. At least I had my own to use. Plane became stifling warm mid-way. Friendly flight crew does not make up for the terrible gate experience and inflight discomfort. SAS cares about profits not passengers. Plan to take another airline on future flights to Europe."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Route not following great circle, takes too long for CPH-BOS, should be 6.5 hours."
Pros: "Food, WiFi and cheap business upgrades"
Cons: "Delay and lost baggage both ways."
Cons: "Miserable cramped seating ."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. Would be nice if the crew would come around w water occasionally"
Cons: "The flight attendants were just awesome. First time flying with Aer Lingus and I must say they are my favorite airline henceforth"
Pros: "I like how they boarded the back of the plane first!"
Cons: "The seats weren't as comfortable as other airlines. The food wasn't very good either."
Pros: "Great movies and TV available."
Cons: "The food and service was pretty mediocre. The plane was old and felt dirty."
Cons: "They lost all my luggage"
Cons: "They did not include our checked luggage on our flight and had to wait for it to be delivered on the next available flight from Dublin."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"
Pros: "Everything was good except the flight from Dublin to Prague..., I was really thirsty.., and they charged me even for water..!"
Cons: "Free drink/ water on the second flight !"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I suggested I take another flight, they kept on saying we will not be late . Well i missed both connecting flights."
Cons: "The flight is advertise as a British airways flight which flies out of teminal E in Boston. In reality the flight is through aer lingus which flies through terminal C. This should be clarified upon booking...."
Cons: "Worst airline ever. Was over one hour late. I was asking to get rushed through in Dublin in order to make my connecting flight and people were just rude. One security guy even started yelling at me. Very unpleasant experience, do not recommend at all."
Cons: "My flights were cancelled by Aer lingus and I was rebooked improperly, resulting in my being removed from a plane and having to be rebooked at least three times because of how long it took."
Pros: "Quick flight. Small delay. Missing food options but didn’t want anything on the short flight. Window views were great even if I wasn’t on a window seat."
Cons: "Emergency door seating. Actually a lot of seats were free. Reclining seat should have been offered."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Staff did not seem engaged in customer service, did not go up and down the aisles to collect cups, paper, etc. very disappointing in tight space."
Pros: "great on board staff great onground staff in Dublin!"
Cons: "almost 2 hours waiting in line to be checked in (unable to check in online) due to lack of staff...only 2 check in counters open."
Pros: "Fine flight, pushed back on time, tarmac shuttle service"
Cons: "Kinda crummy to not get any water or refreshments on a 3 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was booked through Jetfly and I tried to change the date. I ended up losing the entire ticket. No flight, no money. I talked to Jetfly at least 8 times and they kept confusing things, delaying things, and were not very helpful which caused me to miss any available flights."
Pros: "Staff where unbelievable nice and kind"
Cons: "I was fine with a 5 hour delay I was fine with my bags not being on the same flight as me I am not fine with finally receiving my bags 24 hours later soaking wet. Everything it dripping. I still have nothing to change into now and there was no compensation offered whatsoever. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "I have never been on an airplane with a crew that constantly gave out orders during the flight. Having the trays and seat backs put up one hour before the flight landed? Frequent barking about the shades needing to be up or down? Making you put your seat back up because someone’s drinking coffee behind you? It got old. I suspect this is a company thing. They seemed friendly enough but they have their marching orders!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "very little leg room"
Pros: "Smooth landing. Entertainment. That's about it."
Cons: "I've flown many overseas trips some first, some premium, some economy. This economy was the worst. I felt like a sardine smashed in a tin can. Also, extra to buy snacks and drinks? Not looking forward to the flight back. Would love to upgrade but site won't let you :( even if it gives you an option to do so"
Pros: "The only thing I can say that I liked about this flight was that we arrived a little early."
Cons: "Note: This review is for Aer Lingus a partner of British Airways. 1) Service - one of our fight attendants was incredibly rude. She clearly resents her job. 2) The plane itself was very old and not well maintained. The audio jack for the in-flight entertainment was broken and I could not watch anything. My wife complained about the touch screens being faulty and her audio system was bad. Also, the carpet and seat fabric was torn. 3) The food was disgusting. I mean, really bad. 4) There was a charge for alcohol whereas British Airways was complimentary. 5) Overall, I will never fly Aer Lingus again. It was the worst flying experience in memory."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "More room for passengers in economy class. It is becoming utterly unpleasant. I would like not to be forced to check-in the carry-on when the plane is full. Make more room, sell less, or don't tell me I have right too a carry-on."
Pros: "The flight attendents were fabulous, very friendly and helpful. I sat in the first row and when I boarded the attendant helped me find a spot for my carry on luggage."
Cons: "I paid for priority boarding but never had the chance to board early."
Cons: "my ticket being canceled without me knowing"
Pros: "Flying overnight across the U.S., and then the Atlantic, to Dublin would have been very difficult if not for the accommodations and service provided by Aer Lingus. The reception was warm and comfortable. The in-flight food and service was perfect. The environment was conducive to sleeping during this red eye flight."
Cons: "I have no complaints, to be honest. The flight attendants were so welcoming and accommodating to every request. They were efficient and quick to respond to my questions and requests."
Cons: "Worst flight experience I've ever had and I'm 70+ years old. In Dublin we were diverted from JFK to Hartford due to "mechanical problems" and told we'd be met at the gate and provided ground transportation to JFK. Approximately 30 others going to either JFK or Boston were told the same thing and joined us on a half empty flight to Hartford. When we landed there was no representative at the gate, no ground transportation provided, and no effort to help us. A little investigation on cell phones revealed both the Boston and JFK flights left on time (and I'm guessing full). Needless to say the customers were quite upset. Some even raised their voices which caused the kid representatives of Aer Lingus to call the state troopers (really). When the troopers did nothing the Aer Lingus reps locked themselves in their office rather than deal with their customers. After 2 hours of waiting for the promised ground transportation we gave up, rented a car, and drove ourselves to our destination at our own expense. We were never provided even a free drink. Horrible. Lies upon lies upon lies. I'll never consider flying with them again"
Pros: "The crew was VERY friendly and attentive. They responded quickly to requests and were very pleasant. Everyone was showed attention to details and put customer comfort at the forefront. They allowed people to relocate to seats allowing for more room and comfort once everyone boarded and empty seats were identified. The snacks and meals were tasty and generous. The entertainment options offered something for everyone - great music and movie choices. I would definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment provided"
Pros: "The crew was lovely"
Cons: "The space given was considerably smaller than other transatlantic flights and there were also no alcoholic beverages included when other airlines do."
Pros: "Seating location was as expected and service was great. We enjoyed the overall flight experience."
Cons: "Check-in at Milan was quite slow and confusing. Would recommend opening earlier or having additional staff. Once you make it through the check-in process, you are stuck in an area of the airport with very little amenities."
Pros: "clearing customs in Dublin rather than US was nice. Since we chose the flight based on price, It's reasonable to expect some corner cutting."
Cons: "Aer Lingus operated the flight. Haphazzard ticketing/check-in procedure would have been stressful if it wasn't clear that everyone else on the plane was there in line too. Both legs of our trip with Aer Lingus were on older planes, that had obviously flown a lot of miles. It was a short flight, so food wasnt a necessity, but no beverages were complimentary. Given airline security, water, at least, should be complimentary on any flight."
Cons: "this wasn't a BA flight.. it was air lingus and it was a disaster. shouldn't have been charged BA rates for this"
Pros: "The staff were very sweet and courteous love the Irish accent"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the crew was friendly and the food was okay."
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: "Check in in Dusseldorf was easy, bit they made up for it in Dublin!! In Dublin the check in and information desk of air lingus were awuful. Full of attitude and absolutely no knowledge."
Cons: "Air Lingus is awful! It had 1:20 hours delay that resulted in missing the second flight."
Pros: "What is there not to like: The crew are courteous and caring, the planes are clean and the price is right!"
Cons: "The check-in in Duesseldorf was subcontracted and staffed by an uninformed agent which led to a lot of confusion and inconvenience in Dublin. Someone like that does not reflect well on Aer Lingus which I definitely recommend otherwise!"
Pros: "We were loaded into a bus to shuttle to the aircraft. We waited 30 minutes in the bus with everyone crowded in."
Cons: "The plane was not handicapped accessible and should have been listed that way. Fortunately my friend who was using a wheelchair was not on that flight."
Pros: "The people who worked at the front desk and boarding desk were very friendly and met my needs. As I asked to sit up front and they got me seats by aisle in the front. The beef stew were good"
Pros: "Nothing! It is ridiculous that not even water is given on an almost two hour flight. We pay enough for the flight we should not have to buy water."
Cons: "The cost"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The fact that beer and wine had to be paid for. It is such a small thing to make passengers welcome and feel good on their trip! Lufthansa and Swiss Air don't charge for alcohol on transatlantic flights."
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: "Efficient flight, left a bit late door reasons beyond control of the airline."
Cons: "Website was difficult to navigate. Check in required filling lots of necessary information and if you did not do it quickly, it blanks it all out and you have to do it over. There is no indication of it timing out. Boarding announcements were difficult to understand as were announcements on the plane."
Cons: "There's no aer lingus desk at marseille airport. I arrives a few minutes late and nobody could help me. I missed my flight. Ryanair staff have me aer lingus's phone number to rebook for the day after, and of course on the phone she told me that I had to do it online."
Cons: "Paying for water was a bit much. Fortunately, no charge was made for air to breathe."
Pros: "Everything was basic. I got an old plane so everything wasn't up to date"
Cons: "It was slow in taking off, not sure why but the plane was taxi'd for a long time. In-flight system and variety was lacking. Audio was poor. It did the job taking me to my destination but the great."
Pros: "Check-in was easy and gate agent awesome. Boarding was a breeze. Plane was reasonably comfortable (short haul flight so didn't matter much). Weather conditions great, we arrived in DUB well ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Had lovely pix of nice looking food but charged for it! I had come over on a BA flight that served a really nice snack b'fast. Thought it odd that same route with different carrier made you pay. I was in desperate need of a coffee, could have offered complimentary beverages."
I was held-up at boarding by rude employee who insisted that I had to wait until all other passengers had boarded the lane before issuing me a boarding pass so I can board the plane. I could not check-in earlier and get a boarding pass since I had flown directly from Dusseldorf.
Pros: "It flights themselves were fine. A 45 minute delay sucked though."
Cons: "Service & Notification. The airline switched my itenerary without alerting me which made me miss a connection. The resulting troubleshooting with the airline has been non-existent. I will not fly Eurowings again."
Pros: "The flight was pretty smooth considering it was a small plane."
Cons: "I did not appreciate having to give my hand luggage into the hold which meant that I did not have any money to purchase any drinks on the flights and I was also sitting next to an overweight man which made it very tight for space."
Pros: "Row 3, loads of leg room, the filter coffee was excellent, just a really calm, well run flight"
Cons: "Seat prices were expensive and should really be free as if you are a family of 4, this will add well over £50 to your flight costs."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew was horrible. They walked through the aisles with no regard for passengers seated in the aisles. No food over a 9 hr transatlantic flight. This was not explained in the ticket. This was absolutely absurd. I have never experienced that before"
Pros: "The plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats were just okay, not comfortable. No snacks or drinks were complimentary."
Cons: "I missed my connection in Dusseldorf because none of the 12passport gates worked. Two border agents tried to handle the crowd, but I arrived at the gate 1 minute after flight close. Neither the agents at the gate nor at the transfer desk were willing to help me get to Manchester. Never fly EW again."
Pros: "The crew was fine and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight, had to wait six hours to fly to Munich, then sat in the Munich airport for four more hours as the flight to Milan was delayed. My bag made it to Milan by 10:30, I arrived at 22:00."
Cons: "Boarding took ages. And there were no announcements telling passengers what was causing the delay."
Pros: "The flight was quick and they waited for our flight from JFK, which had been delayed and arrived and hour later than scheduled."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Change in gate was not anounce"
Cons: "More legroom. And not having to pay for a simple glass of water."
Pros: "No frills but no dramas either. All efficient and friendly. Helped that there were many empty seats"
Pros: "I’ve flown with various airlines and must say that I was very impressed with this crew. I guess it was because they all were young and didn’t füdisplay burnout as so many other flight attendants show when dealing with their customers."
Cons: "On both flights the control forty didn’t work."
Pros: "Good view with the high winged propeller plane"
Cons: "Small overhead storage"
Pros: "Boarded and departed gate on time. Efficient."
Cons: "Not the friendliest."
Pros: "Quick efficient boarding - on time."
Cons: "Not terribly comfortable seats but for short haul flights, just fine."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew."
Cons: "There wasn't enough seating at the gate, people (the elderly included) had to sit on the floor or stand for quite some time as boarding started well after the gate closing time printed on the boarding pass."
Pros: "Very speedily boarding, crew dealt with a passenger with a large bag well."
Cons: "Chair didn’t lean back, unclear that water wasn’t free"
Pros: "Staff super friendly. Comfortable sears. Food very good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we could not check in online from home."
Cons: "There was a change of name and the wrong name was changed. I very nearly didn’t get on the flight and had to pay extra fees to fly. I wasn’t aware I was booking with last minute.com, whom I have had issues with before. Worried about the return flights already."
Pros: "If I can give this airline negative stars, I would."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Lack of sympathy. Lack of knowledge. From the beginning, I wasn’t given the boarding pass to my connecting flight nor was I informed as to why. When I finally made it to my connecting flight with NO time to spare (very small window of approximately 45 minutes to make it to my connecting flight) my husband, my son and I were turned away from our flight due to over booking. The Eurowings manager guarantees we would be able to make another flight if we went to the ticket counter right away. At the ticket counter, (different airline) the ticket agent explained we’d have to transfer our booking over from Eurowings to the new airline. This left us NO time to make that flight the Eurowings manager guaranteed us we would make. We also waited 3 hours at the baggage claim office only for them to tell us they lost all our bags. Only 2 out of our 5 bags made it onto the flight and will be waiting at lost and found of our final destination and the other 3 bags are unknown of their whereabouts. The Eurowings ticket agent took ALL of our bags including my husbands and I carry ons, so we were left with no clothing and had to stay at the airport over night. This airline really sucks. We were never informed in advance of this over booking issue or I would have certainly made my own accommodations before hand. Will never fly Eurowings again. Definitely the worst airline I’ve traveled with. And I lost 5 bags in the process."
Cons: "Timing Food Service Entertainment"
Pros: "Seat comfort Nice stafflost"
Cons: "They lost our luggage Major bummer"
Pros: "Attendants and counter staff all super friendly, seats were comfortable with decent leg room, frequent beverage and snack offerings, and a nice selection of entertainment at the seat."
Cons: "Vegetarian hot meal option was a little strange, but not terrible."
Cons: "I did not board, because another flight delay caused me to miss this flight."
Pros: "We had one of the more legroom seats so that was nice"
Cons: "Everything else. I felt the stewardess from my aisle was extremely rude. She would ask someone a question and obviously they can’t hear her because their watching a movie, so she would wave her hand in their face. Another time she was telling me “excuse me” in German while I was watching a movie. I thought she was speaking to someone else since I did not understand German and then she very rudely said “excuseee me”. The food was not filling and they charged for drinks. She also said I was only allowed one free drink of coffee. The second snack was a cake or cheese sandwhich. We were starving the entire flight we had to give in and pay for snacks on board. I’ll try to avoid eurowings from now on."
Cons: "The seats are broken and the crew treats the passengers like they do not matter."
Cons: "Delayed on both legs of the flight plus poor communication relating to why and approximately how long we would have to wait."
Pros: "Staff at the airport (ticket counter and check-in) were very polite."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Then, after flying to Berlin, the staff said we couldn't land there because of weather. They decided to fly us to Leipzig-Halle (another city a two hour drive away) and said they would provide busses to take us back to Berlin. But then, when we got to Leipzig, they said oh we might be able to fly you back to Berlin, just let us refuel. So we all sat in the plane for an hour and a half while they did that. Then, they announced that they couldn't go back to the Berlin airport because there were too many planes landing there. So they told us to get off the plane, go into the arrival hall and we would get more information there. When we got out of the plane, we were greeted by an information lady who informed us that no trains were running at that hour (it was about 11:30pm), and Eurowings would not provide us with accommodation or transportation back to Berlin. The information staff told us that our options were to personally pay for either a taxi back to Leipzig (two hours away!) or rent a car, or wait until morning to take a bus or train. I was able to stay with a friend in the city, and paid to take a bus to Berlin the next day, but what about everyone else who didn't know people in Leipzig and had to fend for themselves? As a young woman traveling by myself in a foreign country, landing in an unexpected city in the middle of the night, it could have been a potentially dangerous situation. I am extremely frustrated with Eurowings. I paid them to take me to Berlin, and they didn't. I talked to customer service on the phone, and they told me that I should make my own travel plans to return to Berlin and they would reimburse me later. Aside from the fact that there weren't buses, trains or flights running till the next morning - I shouldn't have to make my own travel plans! My plans were to fly Eurowings from Duesseldorf to Tegel, and they should be responsible for getting me there. I am never flying Eurowings again, and sharing the story with any friends who travel in Europe. They absolutely do not care about their customers."
Pros: "Flight was on time!"
Cons: "The security in Düsseldorf for American citizen was very nusty. They stop everywhere ask allot of non sense questions and check your bags twice! That was a real torture for no reason!"
Cons: "The entire process to get on a bus to go to flight was delayed by over 15 minutes so the ticket agent could fix one person's flight. There were over 40 people waiting to board the bus. Terrible."
Pros: "Once we were all aboard the completely booked out flight, it didn’t take long to take off. The captain apologised for the delay and kept us up to date with our progress during the short flight. Staff were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Lack of communication at the boarding gate. It wouldn’t take much to let people know the reason for the delay. And, while I understand that it isn’t possible to cater for all allergies on a short flight, there are enough people with food intolerances to have a few options other than wheat based snacks."
Pros: "RUINED OUR TRIP"
Cons: "LUFTHANSA IS TERRIBLE"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled--no crew!"
Cons: "Flight members were very rude, one didn't smile once. She also yelled at me when I was standing in an empty row stretching and waiting for the bathroom. She told me I was not allowed to stand up, even though I was in no one's way and we we're free to move about the cabin. Horribly rude during drink and food service as well."
Pros: "Very nice plane with the most legroom I’ve ever had"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour"
Cons: "I wasn’t offered any refreshments despite having pre-paid for it, onboard Wifi and entertainment did not work, cabin crew were no polite"
Cons: "Y in Geneva without clothes or meds. SwissPort at GVA doesn’t Java a clue."
Cons: "Long walk plus bus ride to plane in windy and chilly weather with slight drizzle."
Cons: "- the flight was delayed by approx. 30 mins (though this delay was not entirely unwelcome as my previous flight was delayed too so in order to make the connection safely, the delay was ironically useful)"
Cons: "Buses didn't fit all people after landing."
Pros: "Comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "EW lost my suitcase in transit in Duesseldorf. Suitcase arrived in Berlin on next flight but then didn't get delivered until 24+ hours later. Hard to reach both EW and delivery service. Due to the delay and further travel plans the next day, I had to buy new clothes in Berlin to have something to wear."
Cons: "The service of the airline was horrible. They lost our bags and refused to show any empathy towards us or the multiple other passengers that also lost their bags from our flight. I will never fly Eurowings again."
Cons: "More than 3 hours delay and this is a lot of times !!! Absolutely no matter what the relationship is about This company is disastrous !"
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "Service onboard was very efficient. Flight was short"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 45 min due to aircraft late arrival. Our seats did not recline right behind emergency row."
Pros: "Overall good experience, flight was short and painless"
Cons: "Flight borded late and at a different gate"
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
Cons: "This is the terrible airlines that we have ever experienced. It’s not organized at all. After booking the ticket, I didn’t say we have to check in 2 hours prior to not to get charged at the airport. When we stand at the encounter, everyone in line didn’t know this and had to turn around to get in the different line to pay for checking in. After that, we had to get back in a long line and the lady didn’t mentioned that she can check in our luggage’s. With that being said, we had to go back to other encounter to pay for checked in luggage. We paid almost $200 for checking in and luggage. How stupid is that? We and other customers in line all said we felt it’s the rip off. We come to Ireland for vacation and expected it would be welcome and nice. This turned us off. Never fly with this airlines again. Thumbs down!!!"
Cons: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Service was not great. The baggage allowance was lower than other airlines, forcing us to repack before we checked our bags. Checking in online was mandatory-something that wasn’t very noticeable in the email when we had a million other trip details to attend to so we didn’t and ended up having to pay a fee to check in. Ridiculous. My wife and I were not seated together even though I booked both tickets together. The inexpensive upfront price of the flight is not worth it since they will trick you into paying in other ways."
Pros: "The trip was smooth once we got a plane. Everything else was as ecpected."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and finally departed 2 hours late. Interrupted a full day’s worth of travel plans."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about an airline that appears to have low fares and then nickel & dimes you for everything, typical bait-and-switch style of doing business."
Cons: "First of all, this airline needs to train their staff better. The gate agent I dealt with on a flight has no business in any field where she would be required to work with people. Second, this airline needs to get their s*@t together when it comes to baggage. I was humiliated (by the creature they hired for a gate agent) when I was forced off the boarding line and then demanded to pay 200 euros (cash only and in euros only) for carry-on luggage that was under the size and weight requirements, and had already flown, without incident, on numerous flights during the same trip. I filed a complaint with Ryanair and weeks later received a very passive, useless, response from some brain-dead individual in corporate I suppose. No one at Ryanair cared about the mafioso-type treatment my family and I, including my 80-year-old mother, received. Avoid this airline at all costs (literally and figuratively)! It will not save you money, or anything else. It will only cost you more!"
Cons: "We attempted to cancel our reservations more than a week before our trip because my husband was hospitalized. Not with the flu or a broken arm, but a major and serious life threatening illness we are still dealing with. We provided numerous documents as proof of the absolute dire situation and they denied the request over and over again. I get that the tickets were "non-refundable" but at least offer vouchers, credit, or be totally a stand-up company and refund the tickets. It wasn't buyers remorse, trust me, we would have preferred to be in Portugal, rather than sitting in a hospital hoping and praying for his recovery."
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "How rude the crew members were and unhelpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "We were charged almost 200 euros extra because we did not check in online (which we could not do because we had been traveling for 30 hours and did not have Wi-Fi in the air) and when we went to check in the receptionist was rude about the fact that we had not checked in, so we had to go across to a different counter to pay our fee, go back to check in at the first counter, and then was told we could not be seated together, when it turned out the flight was half empty. Besides all of this, the planes are not nice, you are only allowed one carry on (no personal item) and the seats are not comfortable. I thought we would save money but check in fees and ridiculous baggage fees made this flight cost more than a nicer airline."
Pros: "Customer service was horrifying"
Pros: "Great service, friendly crew. Smooth flight"
Pros: "On time and friendly service"
Cons: "Hard landing was a bit worrisome"
Cons: "Flight cancelled just a day before departure."
Pros: "I like how inexpensive the flight was. This would make up for the other things had we not been seriously taken advantage when it came to our luggage!"
Cons: "We checked in online the night before our flight but didn't get a confirmation. We didn't think anything of it until we got to airport to find that we didn't show checked in, had to pay EXTRA to have our boarding passes printed off, and had to pay for EACH of our bags as well!! OH! And it's almost DOUBLE if you pay for it at the airport where you can weigh it then if you do it online! And take caution! Our bags that are considered carry on size are still too big for this airline do you will forced to check Them! This is obviously how they offset their inexpensive tickets! The cost of the ticket, once you add in all the other unexpected expenses in order to actually get on the flight, was NOT worth the "cheap" tickets we got! That's the only reason we decided to fly to Ireland while on our trip to the U.K. Had we known it would cost this much we never would have come to Ireland for two days!!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The employees were just as unhelpful flying to dublin as they were flying out of dublin. Simple questions were met with disdain and annoyance rather than polite answers. We went through 3 different people before finding out that we didn't need to go through any of them which the first person could have told us. By the way the first person was a customer service attendant and he swiftly moved us on to the next line to stand in which was completely unnecessary and a waste of everyone's time. I will never fly with ryanair again."
Cons: "This is the worst airline I have ever flown and I have been flying a long time. It was hot, cramped, both flights were late and they had us sitting on the plane. And, it really is not as cheap as it first appears with all the extra feeds."
Pros: "The fact that it got me to Dublin."
Cons: "After having all my liquids taken at security from my carry-on (which had been just fine on all other legs of my trip over) Ryanair decides that they are too full for me to take my bag on board, so they made me check it. When I requested that I get the bag back at the gate, they said no. It had to be checked through to baggage claim. This meant that in Dublin I had to go back to get my bag downstairs and go through security twice more. Exactly what I wanted to avoid. I had a very tight connection to the US. It was horrible! I purposely packed light for a 16 day trip!! It would've been helpful if they had let me gate check it. I won't fly them again."
Cons: "self service kiosks were not working in airport and we were told it would cost 50 pounds each to print boarding pass. We followed directions to try to print on our own by paying for expensive internet service at the airport but still were unable to view & print boarding passes. After talking to several rather unhelpful reps, someone at the Sky Desk made an exception to allow us "free" boarding passes. This was just after 2 people were charge full price (50L each for passes & full price to check luggage, after they didn't get promised email to check bags online) Cheap fares doesn't make up for frustration"
Cons: "Seats are too small and don't recline. There's no entertainment. We sat on the aircraft for a hour without any explanation on why we were waiting."
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane."
Cons: "Hidden fees after hidden fees... The lady at the check in counter said my bag was fine... At the gate they said it was to big and weighed too much. £50 Extra. I bought an exit row seat because I'm big guy. The seat belt didn't fit so I asked for an extension and the flight attendant got very snippy with me and said she would not give me an extension because of "safety reasons". (This has never been the case on any other airline I have flown.) She then very rudely said because of your rather large size we are going to have to move you to another seat where we can give you an extension. Like I said I know I'm a big guy but you don't have to so loud and rude about it. At least say it with a smile and some kindness... Wow. It was just uncomfortable and not a good feeling. Later when I got to sitting in my new seat, they came through with the convince cart (no free snacks or drinks, you pay for everything.) She nor the other attendent with her asked if we wanted and thing, if we were doing alright, nothing. Thank God it was only a 1.5 hour flight. So glad that experience is over."
Pros: "the flight crew was nice and friendly when they werent trying to sell you something."
Cons: "Ryanair is a bunch of criminals that prey on the Americans traveling abroad. Yes its a discount airline but my $18 flight turned into $150 after all the hidden fees were paid for. To charge a passenger 15 pounds each to print a boarding pass is absolutely ridiculous. Everyone else around us could use their phones as a boarding pass except for the traveling Americans who did not have access to a printer while on vacation is criminal. Lesson learned, I will never fly Ryanair again and will tell every American I know not to be blinded by their discount fare."
Cons: "We departed an hour late. The crew was very unprofessional. The landing wasn't good. Kept the light on."
Pros: "The efficiency of the crew"
Cons: "The flight was almost an hour late"
Pros: "The price is great. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Delayed with no explanation. Chaotic boarding. Super cramped seats."
Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"
Pros: "Cheap flight Pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Ended up missing flight because they said I didn't check in online. I did everything I was prompted to do (passport number, add a bag, etc), but apparently there was another button on the bottom of the webpage I had to scroll down and click. They wanted to charge us 45 euros each to check in onsite. The first person also said we didn't pay our baggage fee, which we did. Once we got things situated the doors were closed (even though the plane wasn't leaving for another 45 minutes) and they wouldn't let us through. They wanted to charge us 100 euros each to change to another flight, when the flight itself cost 39 euros. They wouldn't refund the baggage fee either! Apparently they can charge such a low ticket price because they get their money by scamming people out of it. When we finally DID get on a flight the next day, it was like an infomercial the whole way there...trying to sell people everything from water to watches. I would never suggest Ryanair to anyone."
Pros: "Really enjoyed my flight to London & back to Dublin with my Nieces"
Cons: "Would have loved it if there were some Irish stewards or stewardesses on board as it would have been easier to understand their accents and they tend to warmer & friendlier in their dealings with passengers"
Pros: "Quick trip from London to Dublin. Clean, new aircraft. Safe flight from start to finish."
Cons: "No complimentary water!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"
Pros: "No frills cheep short flight. Good enough"
Cons: "The comfort"
Cons: "No one knew where the boarding gate was."
Cons: "slow, disorganized check in. Boarding is hideous, I'd rather wait in a DMV line. Airline run as if consumer, and luggage, are to be avoided. I cannot understand why Anyone would fly them routinely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no on was told"
Cons: "Did not know there was a 45 euro check in fee per person...never was advertised!"
Cons: "Delay is annoying!"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Tried to charge us for everything, including 15 pounds for printing a boarding pass. WiFi was only free for an hour at the airport, flight was delayed by two hours, plane lacked AC and was super cramped and hot. Boarding was also a mess."
Pros: "Cost Convenience"
Cons: "Walking across tarmac to board No music or anything"
Cons: "Problems with securing printed boarding passes (non EU) as could not print them ourselves at motel. Finally able to get them without charge after protest. Problem paying for checked bag online (did not go thru) so had to pay higher fee at airport. All this caused delay and rush to not miss flight. Not familiar with Ryan Air M.O. Not informed till 2 days before flight of online check in requirements. Not told could check in 30 days ahead-so could not print passes at home in US before travel. Did not know would have to enter and exit plane via stairs with large carry-on. Ryan Air should be more up front about extra charges incurred if you don't follow their protocol-esp. for first time users. Now know and will not fly with them again. Ended up costing as much or more than flying Aer Lingus Bristol to Dublin would have."
Cons: "The crew said there would not be drinks because of anticipated turbulence for the entire flight. There was NO turbulence."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and took forever"
Pros: "We had been scared by other reviews, but this was not as bad as we'd read. There is no entertainment onboard, no food except for sale, and some luggage restrictions you need to take note of before you check in. Otherwise, quick smooth flight, friendly staff, luggage arrived, so overall fine experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "If you are flying without luggage or carry-on, Ryan Air might be fore you."
Cons: "The airline charges a ridiculous amount for EVERYTHING! We bought our tickets and realized almost immediately that bags were not included. We tried to upgrade our ticket type to be inclusive of a bag, but took two hours to navigate their automated "customer service". Finally got through to a live person (which they charge for), they will allow you to upgrade the ticket if you bought through KAYAK. You have to purchase your bags separately, and 1 bag was significantly more than what our ticket costs. I contacted KAYAK roughly 5 hours after the original purchase, and they could do nothing because Ryan Air is a low cost carrier. It was cheaper buy Aer Lingus seats inclusive of luggage than to add luggage on Ryan Air. I will never fly Ryan Air again, and caution anyone trying to buy Ryan Air through KAYAK"
Pros: "We were unable to check bags in advance. Staff handled at bag drop."
Pros: "Love the crews of Ryan Air!"
Cons: "I wish that there was at least water for free."
