The check in was not good. I was unable to check in on line the previous day. I was rudely informed that I was late checking in and I was on standby. My husband and I were separated on the eight hour flight. It was very difficult to travel so long away from one another.
No wifi or entertainment on board at all.
We had to go down 4 flights of stairs holding our bags to get to the bottom, to wait for 10 mins for a bus...that took us all across the airport to board our plane. We were about 40 mins delayed on top of that.
Great leg room in economy and the entertainment system has lots of options, I watched a few docs with David Attenborough. the flight crew were wonderful and helpful. I was really impressed with the food, both the main meal and the snack prior to landing. Some of the best food I have had on a flight! Great job Air Canada!
Basic level business class with few frills!
Free water and chocolate on board
Pros: "Boarding was crazy and confusing. Ground crew poor communication and rude"
Pros: "We ran into a passport problem and they sent Wilis Otieno back home to Nairobi instead of helping him resolve it. I made a dozen phone calls to no avail. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was told on the phone earlier (and very rudely) there are no gluten free options for eating. I have celiac disease and do not do the diet for "fun". It's for health. I found out thanks to the excellent crew on board there is an option."
Pros: "Seats were spacious and they fed us on the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "the flight got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "no boarding zones. boarding was a free for all."
Pros: "Food and crew were terrific."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is particularly laborious"
Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."
Pros: "Only thing I liked was getting off that compact death trap"
Pros: "Gate, boarding and smooth sailing on A380 bus by the pilots"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."
Pros: "friendly service"
Cons: "no head support"
Pros: "I like everything. Everything orderly and perfect."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time."
Pros: "Nice to be on a full service airline for once"
Pros: "Great flight and a super smoth landing in strong southerly winds."
Pros: "The organization of this flight was great— my party of three boarded quickly, and we were pleased with the complimentary drinks service. The entertainment options could have presented with more options, however, I was not upset with what I watched. The crew was very attentive, and the flight was smooth, overall."
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was very hot— there were a lot of us packed into this flight, and there were no sources of air.. so it got pretty stuffy. Between the temperature and the lights staying on for a majority of the flight, it was difficult to sleep, especially for so many hours. In addition to this, I had a dairy allergy, and was not able to eat either of the meals I was offered, because the fish and “veggie pasta” were both covered in cheese."
Pros: "I was better prepared"
Pros: "Very friendly and polite crew, pretty good meal in economy. I liked the entertainment selection"
Cons: "Bathrooms should have gotten a bit more attention in terms of cleanliness."
Pros: "My first time flying with Lufthansa was outstanding. Great service, super friendly and ready to please. Appreciated the free adult beverages and frequent availability of water during the long, dehydrating flight. In-flight movies were fun to pass the time."
Cons: "Disembarked the plane in a lot and had to shuttle back to the terminal. Not a big issue but much prefer disembarking at the terminal."
Pros: "Staff was nicer on this flight verus the first flight."
Cons: "My tv didnt work. They tried to reset it twice. So 9 hours without entertainment sucks!"
Pros: "Appreciated pillow, blanket and headphones on each seat. Served edible dinner on a 10 pm flight."
Cons: "Movie selection was subpar."
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "To italy united by Lufthansa had great Netflix shows, movies and better interface. This flight to Chicago was Germany based, so I understand the international choices, but there was very little to watch in the movie, tv and show categories. Otherwise all great!"
Pros: "Crew was very professional, friendly and helpfull. Fantastic entertainment selection. It was a pleasure."
Cons: "The seat space a bit tight in economy."
Cons: "Because of mechanical errors in our point of origin (NJ, USA) we were unable arrive on time in Germany to make this connecting flight. Very very disappointed in United Airlines. Will never travel with them again."
Pros: "Exceptional staff, service."
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "Paying for wifi"
Pros: "Crew was nice, doing the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "Awful food, small seats. Exactly same as economy."
Cons: "Can they turn the heat up. So cold!"
Cons: "AUSTRIA AIRLINES, (YOUR OTHER COMPANY), WENT THRU MY BAG IN O'HARE, FLIGHT 66 TO VIENNA. THEY TOOK OUT ALL OF MY HOUSE, AND CAR KEYS , AND MY REMOTE CONTROL FOR MY PICKUP, (ALL ON ONE RING), AND DID N O T PUT THEM BACK INTO MY BAG. I WILL N E V E R FLY AUSTRIA AIRLINES, OR LUFTHANSA AGAIN! I SENT AN EMAIL TO YOUR CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPT...customer.services@lufthansa 3 times and they failed delivery."
Pros: "The basics were fine."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was really loud and talked about unprofessional things. Every time I was woken up it was by a flight attendant talk to another attendant really loud across the plane. Also, this was advertised as Lufthansa but was actually United. Kayak seems to do this frequently, and as a customer it is confusing and disappointing."
Pros: "Entertainment system very good ; crew very professional"
Cons: "Airline might have given warning of long long distance between connecting gates and need to undergo another security check. Also waiting area very cramped."
Pros: "Good Flight. Left a little late but arrived a little early. Was surprised to get a cookie and free coffee, tea or water. Have come to expect to pay for even this little bit of refreshment - nice surprise!"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport - Awfully long walk. We took a bus between the airplane and the airport when arriving and departing from FRA, with a long walk between drop-off and boarding spots. I had to wonder if the walk across the tarmac between the 2 airplanes would have been shorter than the walk in the airport?"
Pros: "Crew on the plane was helpful getting us to our seats."
Cons: "Flight from Florence was delayed 20 minutes, which resulted in a much shorter layover. We needed to run from one end of the Frankfort airport to the other to make the flight. We are over 60 and just made the flight."
Pros: "It was a nice, efficient flight"
Cons: "Guy at exchange should have said - All Lufthansa connections this way that way if a gate change had iccurred one didn't have to go thru security again..."
Cons: "This flight had a lactose free meal but not gluten free."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "We cheked in on line At Amsterdam airport at the drop of lugage was a nightmare Line out the door wich made us almost missing the plane"
Cons: "We cheked in on line for our flight Amsterdam Boston Ariiving at 5.05 AM for our first flight to Frankfurt at the lugage drop of desk There was a line out the door wich made us almost mis the plane At the gate they had problems with my carier on The same carier on is traveling with me for more than 15 years and never denied plane acces Result all my creditcards/money and important documents where not longer withs us So we could not buy a drink or food at two airports There was plenty of space in the overhead compartments above our seats That part of our experience was very bad Tnx"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Very smooth. Flight crew amazing. Overall experience great."
Our flight was canceled and had to stand in line for 3 hours and 11 minutes to get on a flight to Florence Italy for the same day. They couldn’t get us to Genoa for 36 hours and had to go through Rome no direct flight. We will be contacting customer service for compensation for a hotel stay in Florence and train tickets to reach our destination Genoa Italy.
same as from LUX … professional, nice.
They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "The crew."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."

Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
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"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
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: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."

Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"

Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"
Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."

Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Cons: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Cons: "The flight was late, real late."
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Cons: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Cons: "no vegeterian sandwiches very disappointed"
Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"
Pros: "It es a good flight back"
Cons: "Items missing on duty free purchases"
Pros: "Short & easy flight"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"
Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."
Cons: "the food is terrible."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Cattle car accommodations"
Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "It was an hour late"
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice to me. TV was very good. space was enough ."
Cons: "We had to pay for wi fi."
Cons: "bad smell around my seat"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "I like the service of AF"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
The crew were so kind and friendly! When chatting with the crew they asked if we were celebrating in Paris? I said we were celebrating my birthday in Paris with my husband and friends! They kindly gave us both our coffee and snacks for free! This was so kind and has never happened us before! This made the experience so personal and enjoyable! Everything else was also perfect!
From using an app that denied my negative covid test THREE times because they misread it and tried to mislead me about it ("Maybe the date isn't specified?" when it very much was and I'd drawn attention to its correct location); to the fact that my connecting flight wasn't even available in this app was supposed to determined whether I could fly to my final destination; ti the fact that a supposedly vital piece of documentation wasn't even mentioned in that app; to the unnecessary delaying of a connecting flight by several hours that was suddenly on time again upon landing minutes only late, which somehow required all passengers with ANY connecting flight to run to their gate regardless of destination; to the fact that the boarding passes didn't include my initial return flight and only the connecting, which was cause to be denied entry to the airport, to the apparenly unknown and much disputed location of the check-in where I would have to report to get said boarding pass; to the ONE HOUR WAIT behind maybe 20 people total in spite of having no bags to check because again, I had no boarding pass; to the app incorrectly stating that no additional covid test was needed only to find out after having been at the airport THREE HOURS; to the fact that my itinerary"couldn't" be changed because it was "in flight" while the "fare difference" I would be charged went up $100 every hour I was forced to wait because there were magically no notes regardingmy flight every time I called back as directed; this was a miserable experience all around. Never recommending aer lingus to anyone ever and certainly won't fly it again. Guess I won't ever find my long lost relatives...
Pros: "Return on investment is excellent. great ground and air crew great service all around."
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary but I am not going to fly Air Lingus or TAP ever again."
Cons: "the Team Leader at the check in counter was nasty, Her colleague made the mistake of not telling me that I had to wait there for the wheelchair that was going to take me to the plane, so I went to have a light breakfast. Then I waited half an hour on my feet waiting for the wheelchair"
Cons: "Delayed flight, no snacks, and staff not as friendly."
Pros: "It was a comfortable and roomy (nice leg room) flight"
Cons: "Their entertainment system was not working, nor was their WiFi"
Pros: "Not crowded, lots of empty seats"
Cons: "Poor customer service. I think I said thank you many more times than the flight attendants who barely acknowledged me and seemed annoyed about performing any type of basic service (serving food/water/collecting rubbish/etc.)."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Who starts a boarding process 2h before the flight with only 2 counters, with no possibility to check in online (even for those without luggage) and no automatic machine? I'm very glad the company had the kindness to wait for us on the last call for boarding when you finally check your luggage 30min before departure. Should we talk about the politeness of your fight crew? In short, very disrespectful. Delivering the luggage took an extremely long time"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We would like a lil free water"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "plane staff asked passengers that if they did not have a plane to catch to allow those who did to deplane first."
Cons: "Very little information regarding the two hour delay. We heard that the plane was on the ground but there were no busses available to transport us to the plane."
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: "More room on the Airbus on Aer Lingus. Comfortable temperature in plane. Easy boarding."
Pros: "Nothing went wrong so that's plus"
Pros: "The flight was very short, but everyone was accommodating."
Pros: "Friend staff members onboard willing to help customers"
Cons: "The snack service that had everyone line up in the aisles was a bit hectic and busy"
Cons: "BA used to feel like luxury travel. Now they just feel like any run-of-the-mill budget airline. Felt nickeled & dimed from start to finish. Staring with being asked to pay $39 if I wanted to preselect my seat. My friend and I chose the free option of selecting our seats 24 hours before the flight--her luggage didnt even make in on the plane! It was finally delivered at 2:00 AM the next morning; well past the 8:00 PM promised delivery, which caused us to lose an entire eveing in Paris. On the return flight, home, she was told there wasn't even a seat for her on the plane. I failed to add that after booking and paying for her flight, they cancelled and deleted the SFO to London leg of the flight without so much as notifying her via email, phone, or text. Mind you, the London to Paris leg was not cancelled. Had we not tried to pre-book our seats, she would never have known they had cancelled her flight. What impacted her, impacted me, so needless to say, neither of us will ever fly BA again! BTW, their online customer service representatives were very nasty to deal with."
Pros: "it was quiet and smooth for an English/Irish flight."
Cons: "Horrific food; horribly tight seats on an E330;"
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."
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Would like to be at least able to state a seat preference. With a tendency to be claustrophobic, a middle seat is the worst. Fortunately it was a short flight"
Cons: "See dislikes followig Dallas to Paris"
Pros: "Easy flight. On time."
Cons: "Waiting for counter to open at 8:20. Did not know. Could have been enjohing coffee somewhere."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, skilled pilots and polite crew."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and therefore a late night became a very late night to get back home."
Pros: "Their best was merely adequate."
Cons: "Unlike modern airlines Aer Lingus does NOT let you check in ahead of time. You have to WAIT in line forever with people checking luggage. Also, my flight was an hour late. No reason or apology given. It nearly made me miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, positive crew. Clean plane. On-time departure & arrival"
Cons: "Only food offered was for purchase - even snacks. :-("
Pros: "Flight crew should have not set our expectations after leaving Paris one hour late then sitting on tarmac in Dublin with the hopes we would still make our connecting flight. Stress level was karen higher by this point"
Cons: "Took us 14 additional hours to make it home. Airline and connections should be more realistic."
Pros: "nil unfortunately"
Cons: "waiting in three different lines for over two hours with one person serving! Paying for my baggage (under20kgs) with my flight then being forced into paying again at the airport because they said they did not have my details on their system. being forced to go to another line and que up to pay a second time for my baggage to be taken onto the airport. Going back to another line to put my baggage in and show the receipt for the baggage that had been paid for twice. Going to the next (another) line with one person serving - several Dublin passengers in the que and a line that as about 100mts long- yes about 100 metres long with one person serving without any Lingus staff coming to see if all was ok . No help no announcements nothing. sitting in a plane for an hour and a half with three children under the age of four crying, screaming and yelling all the way without a thing being said by any of the crew. A little is ok, but three families with young children with no support from the crew was not pleasant"
Cons: "1 hour in the slowest line ever. No self serve kiosk. CDG security also frustratingly slow"
Cons: "No snacks or water"
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Still havent found it."
Pros: "Seats comfy"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and confusing. Not organized well, check in was AWFUL. One hour to get through with two people. Not eddiexekf to make plane on time!"
Cons: "Only 3 people to check bags for the entire flight? Are you kidding? I had to rush through passport control, skip the line, to make my flight. Unreasonably understaffed check-in in Paris. I stood in line to check my bag and get boarding pass for an hour and a half. Absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "Plane is Dirty. Trash around seat floor and crumbs where remote is. No charging station on seats."
Cons: "We had a terrible experience at the Aer Lingus desk in Paris. We got there two hours early for our flight and there was already a long line at the desk and no agents at the counter. Finally some agents arrived started checkng people in. After 15 min in line, they told us that if we were flying to the U.S., our flight was delayed and we would not make our connection, and to get out of line and wait. After 20 more minutes, they said that was a mistake and get back in line. I waited for approximately an hour and a half in line there, and had to run to my flight. There was no effort made to hurry us through security or any apologies."
Cons: "It wasn't written anywhere that my flight was serviced by air lingus. So I had to change terminals to check in barely made my flight. Slowest check in staff Ive ever encountered. No complimentary refreshments thought the credit card machine didn't work so I guess they were complimentary after all."
Pros: "The crew was great and very accommodating. Seat we're comfortable. They crew kept us all informed with the progress of the flight."
Cons: "One of my seats was not cleaned up properly. There were used napkins in the compartment in front of me."
Cons: "Since my ticket was with British Airways "Operated" by Aer Lingus, I was not the only one confused about which airport terminal to go to. The taxi driver was confused too. He was not sure he had dropped us at the right place. Even the person at the Information Desk at the airport said it could be unclear for someone "not in the business". Please rectify. Thanks"
Pros: "Good amount of legroom, nice plane in good condition. Friendly professional staff."
Cons: "They have a rather meager selection of movies and TV to watch. My flight over to Europe was on British Air, and the comparison in this regard was stark. BA has tons of movies and TV to choose from, and lots of first-run. This had about 6 TV shows, 2 episodes each, and maybe 20 movies, ranging in age but mostly not very new. When you're on a daytime flight for 7 hours, this becomes something you care about."
Pros: "The worst airline baggage handlers , will never fly with them again , stupid website , good luck trying to connect with the customer support... Irish communication is the same as 3 world"
Pros: "very attentive staff!"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was very good. lots of choices."
Cons: "slow check-in terrible, website was down so no on-line check in, stuck in a window seat. seats in main cabin are too small. too many chiefs and not enough indians... check in at CDG was a joke, terrible service!"
Cons: "I was very lucky to make my connecting flight because of a 90 minute delay. I was informed that my bags might not make it, which is the last thing you want to hear when you need your bag for the next day..."
Pros: "Got in early"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 25% of the flight. They say this happens often. spent 3 hours at the airport filing a claim. I hope I see my suit case again"
Pros: "Boarding on AerLingus is messy and last minute. But crew is nice. Short flight so no food without paying separately for it, and no entertainment options."
Pros: "Seats were overall comfortable, though the plane's upholstery was showing its age."
Cons: "We had to pay for refreshments on the European flights."
Pros: "1. The staff was very friendly but hampered by poor food and water planning. 2. The airline's name is humorously suggestive."
Cons: "1. We were informed by CDG's website that international travelers should arrive 3 hours before the flight. Our flight was at 10:20 AM. We arrived before 7 AM. There were 4 people in line ahead of us. No one from Are Lingus arrived until 7:45. There were no apologies, no friendly welcome, just officious personnel who could have cared less about us. We had had a problem at JFK on our flight out and we were told to expect problems on the return. The clerk separated me from my wife and sister (who needed a wheel chair) and then issued us boarding passes only for the flight to Dublin without explanation. I waited in a line at the gate for another 2 hours to straighten it out."
Flight was ok but agency forced the check in.
Transavia sent an email Where they explained they had to hire a mini plane with crew to serve us , the crew was rude , and un prepared , they splashed sparkling water all over me and two roads , no apology or nothing just 2 napkins , I paid to bring a horas my hand luggage that was refused and put it with the check inn luggage I snapped several videos of the poor and uncomfortable situations we lived and will post it later on my social media to warn people about it , and will contact the customer services at the airline so they know about it

Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Not even complimentary tap water offered. Horrific boarding method and rude staff shouting at people who were waiting patiently. Very likely they will take your carryon even if you comply with requirements, but after you go through the process of security, which is irritating. If they need space they should offer upon check in."
Pros: "great crew and exellent service"
Pros: "Cheap. Gets you from one stop to the next."
Cons: "Took forever to check in. I know they were under strike at that time but then after waiting for so long and just making our flight, they sent my luggage to Seville Spain. It took 3 full days for me to get my luggage. I contacted via Facebook and email and basically just got the response of I have to wait until it arrives at the airport and the best advice they could give was to call the Seville airport. I mentioned multiple times in my email and message that I did not have phone service. I showed up to the airport everyday to see if it made it in finally it did on day 3. It wasn’t until 5 days later that they even contacted me to say it had arrived but I had already picked it up. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Plane comfort was normal to good."

Pros: "Terrible experience. From sub par USA style security lines to delays, poor boarding.... Gong show."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "We were sent to Kiwi booking to complete the ticket booking. Flight was canceled due to strike but we weren’t informed this till at the airport. This is likely because airline only has Kiwi contact info and never reached to us. Kiwi also didn’t inform us. We were stuck at airport for 6 hours trying to contact airline. Phone can’t be reached. We talked ied WhatsApp Facebook tweeter. All takes like one hour to get response. In the end flights can’t be rescheduled we had to book new flights ourselves and find hotel to stay. They won’t cover for hotel either. The flights refund is now funded to Kiwi which we also need to find time to argue with Kiwi to get back. DOnt know how long that may take. The overall experience has been terrible"
Cons: "Transavia should have more capacity to hold customers requests. The representative from Transavia at airport provide absolutely no help. Just told us to WhatsApp Transavia. If that’s the approach then more people should be there responding WhatsApp comments not like no response within one hour. Kiwi is of no help as well. If flights get canceled agents should provide us updates as well. When we contacted kiwi in the airport Kiwi even denied flight cancel."

Cons: "I did'' that we have to pay for have water to drink !"
Cons: "water is not complimentary"
