Pros: "Service was minimal but sufficient, Food was good"
Cons: "Seats 23A, 23B were extra cramped on the B777-300ER, even though they are sold as "extra comfort"! due to the video screen taking space between the seats. The seats were so cramped that the overhead light kept coming on, unknowingly, when people shifted in their seats."
Pros: "Service was excelent puntualiti was excelente thank you very much"
Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."

Cons: "Just before landing in Zurich the flight attendant started to announce the gates for flight connections. I was on tight schedule trying to make my connection to Amsterdam. He first started to give my gate number, but then said there won't be flight to Amsterdam until the next day. I was very worried. When landing it was very difficult to find anyone working for Swiss to assist me. Then someone told me that my flight would be leaving in 3 minutes. I asked to be rushed through line, but everyone said not too worry because plane would wait for me. When I arrived at gate there was no one there. Then it took quite a while to find another Swiss employee to help me. There seemed to be a lot of confusion."
Pros: "It was nice to be given a 20 euro voucher for food and beverage, due to the 5 and a half hour flight delay."
Cons: "There was much confusion and no one seemed to know what was going on with this flight. By the time I reached Schipol all trains and trams had stopped. I had to pay an extra 40 euro for cab home that night."
Pros: "The larding was terrible. I came in a wheelchair but am able to walk short distances. I spoke to man at the gate about boarding early and he said he would come and get me. But he did not and I had to push and shove with everyone else as their is no plan. Awful! Service was good. Lots of water and juice brought round in the night of"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Was not able to perform online checkin and thsu was not able to pick seats."
Cons: "The handle of the pull-stick that slides into the suitcase was broken off with the pull-stick sticking out of the TUMI suitcase. Used a pen point to release it and get it back into the suitcase. No handle so it was impossible to drag the suitcase. The ground personnel representing Swiss Air at the Boston Baggage carousel was a novice, had never filled out a baggage claim form before. Told me they would phone me. I am a bit skeptical about this claim. Not sure if it was Swiss Air of the local ground personnel who damaged the suitcase."

Pros: "Nearly all Flights on time"
Pros: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Cons: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Pros: "Crew was super professional and friendly !"
Cons: "Little to no overhead cabin room to stow by my bag so had to place under my feet."
Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"

Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."

Cons: "I wish there was a vegan option for the food/snack onboard."
Pros: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Cons: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."
Pros: "Although the flight to Frankfurt was delayed for more than an hour they made special arrangements to get on time to the next flight."
Cons: "I have no flight to connect to."
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"

Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."
Pros: "You guys did a great job. I've never seen boarding go so smooth, The self-serve boarding gate was better than any human."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Flight was on time. We boarded and left on time. Flight attendants were friendly and courteous. I was happy to get a complementary sandwich and drink on such a short flight. We arrived at our destination earlier than expected. Seats were no frills, but decent. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Boarding is stressful. A free for all. I wish they would announce and board one section at a time. I'm traveling with children! I don't want extra stress of people being so pushy. Also,on arrival the bus back to the terminal was similar."
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."

Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"
Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the food was poor"
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"
Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."
Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."

Cons: "Delayed - but made up for later!"
Pros: "The crew was very kind."

Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."
Pros: "The food was pretty exceptional for a 2 hr flight."

Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and capable."
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."

Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
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: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"

Cons: "Tiny seats"
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."

Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."

Pros: "The long flight"
Cons: "The long flits"
Pros: "Service - Crew"
Pros: "I can't even count the number of times I have flown KLM in the last 4 years. They are my airline of choice when I fly back and forth from the U.S. thru Amsterdam to Nairobi. This last flight I boarded and then 90 very exuberant girls from London board in all the rows in front of me. I was concerned it was going to be a less than restful flight. Just the opposite. As always the KLM crew took extra ordinary care of all of use. The service was wonderful and I scooted off the flight ahead of the girls to make my very short connection. The crew is what always make the experience delightful! Thank you again KLM."
Cons: "It would be so nice if the arm rests came up all the way. When you have empty space on your row it would be nice to move the arm rests all the way and stretch out. Also there were not as many New Release Movies to choose from as usual, it seemed."
Pros: "The service is very good.Crew is very nice and flight on time."
Pros: "the hostess was nice"
Cons: "i was givven a poor seat at the end of the airplane, 2 people slept next to me and for 9 hours i couldnt leve my seat untill the hostess asked me if i needed help"

Pros: "It was great that there was a vegetarian food option for everyone; I forgot to call ahead to ensure that I got one"
Cons: "The TV screens on the seat backs were old; gave a fuzzy low-res picture. The audio in the headphones was never correctly left-right balanced. The controls for movie/audio playback were slow to respond and clunky."
Pros: "Delft-themed safety briefing was lovely. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient"
Cons: "No leg room. The box underneath the seat in front makes it impossible to stretch your legs. The arm rest lifts only to 45 degrees which is useless. No way to gain some lateral space there."
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "the cabin configuration is bad"
Pros: "2-4-2 configuration was ideal, because we had a pair of seats on the side"
Cons: "HIndu vegetarian meal was FISH!! Hindus DO NOT eat fish!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew and staff were very professional, courteous."
Cons: "50 Euro charge for one checked bag, and they placed me on a locked standby list (at initial check-in the were unable to assign me a seat despite staff efforts) for the second leg of my return journey after I had paid extra for checked baggage and reserved my flight well in advance. My impression is that they may be deliberately overbooking flights. I was given a seat assignment at the gate, however I didn't like the uncertainty of not knowing wether or not I would be boarding until the last minute."
Pros: "entertainment options"
Cons: "lack of USB or other power outlet to charge my own devices, poor responsiveness from crew"
Cons: "Helpful flight attendant, kind check in attendant"
Pros: "Crew was good, especially from Beijing to Copenhagen"
Pros: "The flights and food were good. no problems there."

Pros: "Check in was so easy."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Entertainment was great. The service by the crew was great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if the armrest went as far back as the seat. Flying with my partner, she doesn’t sleep well on planes unless she can completely lean on me. The armrest between our seats only retracted to the upright seat level."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly. I was not expecting walking down to the tarmac to board the plane. But flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Checking in didn’t open until 2 hours before plane was scheduled to take off. Really? We got to airport early so we could eat dinner. You are depriving the airport of revenue. Not to mention we had to stand there for over an hour. And then just one agent showed up. Terrible service and planning."
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Everything was pleasant as expected except for one thing, mentioned below."
Cons: "45 minutes late taking off. Could have been the airport's fault rather than the airline though. I don't know."

Also flight was delayed leaving and there was rubbish and chewing gum from previous flights. we had to clean the tables ourselves with wet wipes as they were dirty from previous flights."
Cons: "Flight delayed and we sat on tarmac for 2 hours"
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: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Hottest I have ever been in a plane (we were in 40G and H) and I “run cold”. We were sweating and drinking water like crazy (they gave us one bottle and did not routinely walk the aisles handing out more). Luckily we brought our own water. Early June and headed to Scandinavia, not someplace hot. Seats were hard and I put my unused blankets under me."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth, luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "No entertainment, only coffee and tea served."
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster. Took almost one hour for a trainee to check us in. Printed 8 bag tickets (for 2 bags) and after we complained was told there was no line at immigration, so should be okay. Guess having a 3 year old wasn’t enough for us to get any compassion or expedited service. At gate. No early boarding for children."
Cons: "Internet page for buying excess baggage was difficult to understand."
Pros: "No comment since very short flight."
Cons: "My husband was unable to check in on line. SAS when contacted by phone which was difficult to do because it is hard to locate their number had no explanation other than maybe due to security. We missed a tour due to the time spent (unsuccessfully) trying to solve this problem."
Pros: "I liked that boarding and take off went smoothly. The cabin crew was extremely nice and always was there when you need something!"
Cons: "There was no snack served."
Pros: "No entertainment. Food not part of basic deal. But was both no problem for me because it was a short flight. On both points I rather would say: N/A"
Cons: "Chairs were narrow and not so comfy."
Cons: "gate change at the last minute across whole airport, and I am in a wheelchair so it was very challenging. people at airport not accommodating, kind or friendly"
Pros: "I liked that we landed."
Cons: "Why can't SAS ever be on time? The last 4-5 flights I've been on have connected me either too late or just barely in time for connecting flights. Please be more like Swiss."
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "1 hour delays and 70 euro bag fee"
Cons: "The agent at the gate misled me into thinking there would be no fee associated with a checked bag. When it turned out there was, I was told it was too late."
Pros: "Ok friendly"
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Cons: "They charge me €70 for my bag and it should have been free!!"
Cons: "70euro baggage fee at counter check in while flying on SAS. The same fee is 13 Euro if is bag selected at the time of ticket booking. kayak never gave me the option."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff in airport and on board. Really like the new planes, too. Food served on long haul international legs even on SAS Go which was great."
Cons: "Boarding a bit confusing on a couple legs, didn't really announce boarding group etc, but otherwise was fine."
Cons: "I understood I could check one bag. Nope. Checking one bag cost me $67. So much for saving money."
Pros: "Was able to selct my seat"
Cons: "Had to pay €70 to check in luggage - most expensive ive ever seen! No beverages other than coffee and tea abailable, water could be appreciated"
Pros: "Fish was excellent, flight attendant gave me free wifi after after I had an issue to pay w my card, I was let through express security in copenhagen, US border protection was fast and easy."
Cons: "I didn't get a window seat and it was a little bit tight."
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."
Cons: "The flight to Stockholm was late which made it stressful to make my connection to Seattle. However the SAS agent I talked to was very helpful."
Cons: "During online check in and through the website, I was informed that I would be able to have one free checked bag. I was never prompted that I would have to pay additional. However, when I arrived at the airport, I was told that I had to pay an additional $75 to check my bag in even though my boarding pass stated I was able to check in one bag. I was then pushed back and forth through the airport to complete this process. I would have liked to be given warning if I had to pay any additional costs."
Pros: "The extra leg room I paid for."
Cons: "The cost to change my flight"
Cons: "Delayed departure. Temperature in cabin was uncomfortably hot while waiting for departure."
Pros: "short - efficient"
Cons: "no problems"
Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"

Cons: "it was extremely hot in boarding area. when we landed we sat on the tarmac for an hour with no air conditioning and we weren't allowed to use the"
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Pros: "It was the only non-stop flight for our needs. Timing was great too. It was nice to have 2 seats to ourselves."
Cons: "Going over our flight was cancelled at the last minute. We paid more for a non-stop flight we did not receive, lost wages because we both worked half-days to accommodate this flight departure time, and lost half a day of our trip. When we did fly on SAS to return, I found the service and amenities lacking. Why serve drinks well before your meal time and then not come back through with drinks again? Overall, it was not the best flight experience."
Cons: "Seats are bit dence. It would have been nice to get a complimentary soft drink, even it's a short flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, the seats were very comfortable, and the lunch was good. The movie selection was great!"
Cons: "I wished the dinner was a little more substantial. It felt more like a snack than a meal."
Cons: "We were delayed before boarding, then delayed again upon landing. Hence, we missed our connection and had to fly to Copenhagen and not arrive in Helsinki until after midnight."
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."
Cons: "Nothing! This was one of my best flights ever."
Pros: "Thanks to COVID, minimal service"
Cons: "A cup of tea about $7.00. Can it be better. Certainly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed once we had boarded, so we had to sit at the gate for about 2 hours, which was not the crew's fault of course, however, they could have offered drinks. Once we finally got in the air, they only offered purchasable snacks in a way that was confusing--and did not even come through the cabin with complimentary drinks. Given the circumstances, and the fact the time in our seats was extended by over two hours, there could have been some better service from the actual flight attendants. It should have been clearly stated at the beginning of the flight, and once more when we were in the air, that no complimentary drinks were going to be handed out, and if we wanted anything, we would need to purchase it. I wouldn't have minded purchasing if I had known that was my only option."
Pros: "Out of my four flights with Aer LIngus, this leg of my trip that both left and arrived on time. It is sad, that when landing they had to say thank you for flying another on time Aer LIngus flight. Makes me wonder how often are you not on time? My experience says 75% of the time your late."
Cons: "First off, don't try charging me 150 euros to check my bags when I already paid for it at booking. Then who charges for 2,50 for a can soda on an air plane? Lastly, I'm 6'4" and the seats were so close there was no way to sit without my knees pressed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "The airline charged for luggage at airport check in."
Cons: "Dublin airport No suitcase when we arrived No food. No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "No TV on board and you had to pay for a glass of water"
Pros: "NO SECURITY CHECK FOR INBOUND FLIGHTS. What a relief!"
Cons: "Cramped rickety stairs, up & down to Passport control. In flight service non-existent. Tepid coffee at absurd $4.50!"
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly"

Cons: "Airplane was late 90 mins"
Pros: "Friendly and practical no complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful."
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to a storm at AMS. Then delayed further in AMS waiting for a gate. Not the airlines fault though. They are one of the few major European airlines that don't serve free food."
Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hrs - missed connection, small seats/aisles."
Cons: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "this flight was unnecessarily delayed. it was possible to have an earlier connection"
Pros: "Flight was nice and was told when there would be turbulence"
Cons: "Boarded/left 20 minutes late"
Cons: "We arrived at Dublin airport two hours before our flight--as instructed--and had to enter an enormous line. Finally, we were instructed to leave the line after almost an hour and a half and were then informed that our tickets had been sold to someone else (we were bumped!). Aer Lingus tried to "normalize" this by explaining that they always "overbook" by 10%. How irresponsible! Instead of arriving in Paris at 4:30 PM (a direct flight) we had to take a flight to London and then to Paris and arrived at 11 PM exhausted (the bus service to Paris had closed down and we had to take a taxi). We will never fly Aer Lingus again. Aer Lingus created the long line to create this very situation!"
Pros: "I had an aisle seat."
Cons: "There was very little leg room, and no comfort for a tired traveler. This was the last leg coming in from Boston and having a 2 hour layover before continuing. The 2 hour trip seemed longer than the 6 hours it took to get to Dublin. The food service never even asked my row if they wanted to buy drinks/ food, even though my seat neighbor clearly put their tables down in anticipation of getting something to eat/ drink. A set of travelers had difficulty comprehending the rules about sitting in the exit row, and the stewardess was not very helpful, but looked angry and exasperated."
Cons: "Weather delays. No water except for purchase"
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage..."
Pros: "Wonderful crew"
Cons: "paying for everything including a little sandwich and a glass of wine. Being late departing and having a rowdy group of men on board going to drink beer in Prague"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Didn't tell all snacks and beverages were not complimentary"
Cons: "All good and drink cost extra and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"
Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I had to put on lots of layers of clothes and I was still cold."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and no snack I don't believe"
Pros: "Crews attention to sick passenger"
Cons: "Coffee 3 euros? Pay for everything?"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, comfortable seats. Food was good as was the wine I purchased."
Cons: "First set of earphones didn't work properly. Second set was better, but sound quality was still weak. Had dual prong outlets, so couldn't use my own. Entertainment offerings were decent, but not great compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Coffee was 3 euros?"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Amsterdam. I wasn't offered any assistance and I had to wait a day to receive my luggage! My flight was an early flight so it,ales not sense why it wasn't brought to the same day"
Pros: "Good ticket price."
Cons: "High priced sandwiches and beverages. Even coffee/tea is for additional charge."
Pros: "It's a real airline, with counters to check in. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Not even water for free."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."
Cons: "11 hours in Heathrow. I will use another airline just to avoid Heathrow next time. You chnged my itinerary putting me there for 11 hours. This was not my choice"
Pros: "Nice plane, nice crew, the airline with the best cup of tea and it is the only airline with Tayto Crisps."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Alcohol was not free"
Pros: "We had a very pleasant experience with Aer Lingus and will not fly to/from Ireland on any other airline from now on!"
Pros: "The landing was very smooth"
Cons: "It took a very long time to get off the plane"
Pros: "A pleasant flight, good crew."
Cons: "They lost a bag and so far, 36 hours later, have not responded to our recorded messages, which us the only option we've found to reach them."
Pros: "$3 cup of coffee tasted like mud."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind. I cannot say much about the boarding process. They boarded from the front of the plane to the back (which is the least efficient way of boarding), but I was travelling in a wheelchair, so I received priority boarding."
Cons: "I fell asleep before the plane even took off - it had been a long day. Because of this, I missed the snack and beverage cart. When I awoke, I was very thirsty. I could tell I was dehydrated. I asked the flight attendant for a beverage, and she prepared a glass for me and grabbed a Coke. Then asked for $2.50. I didn't have any money on me. I also have never known a flight to charge for your first non-alcoholic beverage. The seats were cramped. I have short legs, but my knees were an inch or so from touching the seat in front of me. When the person in front of me leant back, they were practically in my lap. I also did not have much space between me and the person beside me. The rows were three deep, and I sat near the window. Getting up to use the restroom, I was practically crawling on the other passengers' laps. There was no in-flight entertainment, but I wouldn't have expected it out of such a short flight (~2 hours from Dublin to Lisbon)."
Pros: "I liked that the flight time was relatively short."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be a bit put out that there were passengers -- as if our presence was a bit of a bother. Kind of odd."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Dread the return flight"
Cons: "Plane was to take off at 0740 and finally took off apx at 0850 we missed our train had a hassle changing our tickets. Staff on this plane was exceptionally rude. Couldn't even get a free glass of water. You would think because of the long delay a complimentary beverage would be offered. Would like an upgrade at no cost for the return flight for us"
Cons: "We landed at Logan early, but then had to wait for a gate. We still arrived at the gate a little ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Everything was a cost. Nothing was free. The flight attendant would not bring us a cup of water after a wouldn't pay for the bottle one. My kids where thirsty Airfare is so expensive now days that drinks ( water, milk, juice should not cost anything) and the plane should be cleaned. Sorry."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the seats were comfortable, boarding was smooth and easy. There were no delays. Overall it was still a very good flight and I will definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "There wasn't any coffee or water available except for purchase. There was no inflight entertainment but it was a short flight so that didn't bother me too much. After arriving I noticed my suitcase was torn but it is possible this was done by airport personnel (TSA) not the airline's baggage handlers."
Pros: "Plenty of room"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "seats were comfortable! No entertainment but I didnt need any so no problem."
Cons: "boarding was delayed and gate area small, cramped"
Pros: "The plane felt fairly new, and I snoozed comfortably (well, as comfortably as it gets) all the way to Berlin. Unlike on Ryanair flights, these seats actually recline. The captain kept us well updated on take-off and landing; when he came out personally and stood with the crew to see us leave the plane at the end, I was hooked."
Cons: "If someone had been sitting in front of me, and reclined (like I did), I may have had them literally in my face. A few more inches between seats would surely help..."
