So now even with a 200€ flight you get only water and a piece of chocolate, no more food. Aircraft was 30 minutes late and no information on connection flights.
Cons: "We were delayed thirty minutes due to slow service. Zero entertainment and only a brownie for a snack"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, adequate legroom; clean aircraft, polite and professional crew."
Cons: "Super crowded gate -- but that's more the CDG problem than Norwegian's one."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"
Pros: "Space in cabin, friendly crew and nice food"
Cons: "Shorter stoppage ;)"
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "Short flight but staff very attentive, food good."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, relaxing."
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "Enough space for my legs, cabin crew okay"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Although clearly an older plane, it was clean. Gate personnel re-assigned me to a seat in a row with no-one in it."
Cons: "The gate of departure moved twice before departure. The last change was to a completely different building. Apparently the equipment was changed and I did not learn that I would need a seat re-assignment until I scanned my boarding pass during boarding. (However, the gate agent was quick to accommodate)."
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
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: "Late baggage, incompetent staff who each told me a different lie about when the bag would arrive"
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: "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."

Cons: "Flight delayed by over 3 hours, inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and eager to help, as I was traveling alone with a baby"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Pros: "The experience was fantastic, can not critique at all. They made a 14 hour flight a great experience and even a 5hr layover be relaxing. It will be hard to travel with other companies now"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "Standard short flight."

Pros: "Good service except added an extra flight to my trip and"
Cons: "Pilot strike rerouted added a flight and 12 HRs"
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: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"

Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
Pros: "The food was pretty exceptional for a 2 hr flight."

Pros: "Great service and entertainment. Pretty comfortable, too."
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and capable."
Pros: "It was our first time to fly Lufthansa and the overall experience was exceptional. The flight crew was great. We enjoyed the food, drink and movies. We would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "EXCELENT SERVICE BOTH ; COUNTER & IN AIR:: GREAT FOOD ; LOVED THIS AIRLINE"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats comfortable. Served candy and snack on a 20 minute flight. Amazing. Definitely book a flight rather than ferry from Mykonos to Athens."
Cons: "Boarded plane from front of plane back. I paid €18 extra for my seat and I was the last to board. My bag was taken from me because there wasn’t room and it was lost during my layover. Crew members were all scowling and not helpful."
Pros: "The service was excellent. I felt I was flying in first class. Thank you."
Cons: "I think the entertainment should include movies."
Pros: "Cabin crew was polite and accommodating"
Cons: "The captain failed to provide updates on the the delayed due to storms. We were sitting on th plane at the gate for an hour and a half with no updates. Also the seat rows are to narrow/close with its other and seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Apparently Aegean has stopped offering candy before take off. That's a pity as this was a nice (and presumably low cost) way of differentiating from other Star Alliance airlines. Food was mediocre and there was no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Food was very small portion, chicken (2 little slices) with plenty of potatoes. Forgot to give me the tray with the food,didn’t apologize at all.then they told me i need to wait cause they ran out of food trays.."

Pros: "Roomy seats and good food"
Pros: "The food was excellent and the cabin crew were friendly"
Cons: "Not enough water available as it was a very warm flight and I was quite dehydrated"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude and unhelpful. They refused to do a spelling change on my name and forced me to purchase a second ticket. The flight was 25+ minutes late taking off due to lack of organization at passenger check-in. It really is a shame that Agean is pretty much the only option to Istanbul (IST) from Athens."

Pros: "Check-in counter mentioned that our ticket did not include checked baggage, but she only charged for one bag (will be checking on my ticket and discussing with Aegean's corporate if I bought the correct ticket with checked bags). Boarding was easy and the crew was very nice and helpful throughout the flight. I was glad that they served a small meal - food was good...we're not talking about a restaurant meal. Seats were good and just wish there was some in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The assistance from om HE check inn clerk."
Cons: "The confusion of where to drop your bags- whether we had to pay extra and where to pay it!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 2 hours without having any announcement nor a reps to tell you what was going on or when is the new departure time. The aircraft is very small, old, narrow seats, delay in boarding and unboarding."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and happy to assist Good communication"
Cons: "Late boarding Late gate change Too many people with large carry on bags that wouldn’t fit into storage bins"
Cons: "Our first flight out of Mykonos was delayed by a little so we had to run to our connection in Athens and my bag didn’t make it onto the plane. So now I’m in London, missing a dinner because I don’t have dress acceptable clothes, can’t go out and buy any because it’s too late on a Sunday. I am also going to miss my plans which were the only reason we came to London. as I do not have acceptable clothing to go out in tonight. So it was a waste of paying the flight to London, and our Airbnb in London."
Pros: "Best airline in Europe! Excellent service, excellent food, excellent staff and young fleet of aircrafts. I always aim to pick aegean when available to the destination."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment was good! Plane wasn’t full so made a more comfortable trip."

Cons: "They kept the lights on the entire time on a 11PM 4 hour flight. The cabin temperature was very warm and not much room in each row."
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Cons: "Everything was bad delayed and unprofessional team."
Cons: "Bag fee that I wasn't otherwise notified!"
Cons: "30 minutes delay on boarding. Flight attendants did not pay any attention to me when i pressed the assistance button. No one ever came to ask what i needed, they passed by me more than 10 times while the attendance light was on but they never saw it. Very disappointing."
Pros: "I love airlines where you can drink wine with your food."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Loved the free food and coffee, the only airline that I've flown that offers such anenities"
Cons: "Doesn't mention on kayak that the flight was low-cost flight and that we need to pay extra for luggage. we had to pay it on the check -in on airport and it was so expensive."
Cons: "The baggage limits are very strict; if you haven't limited your packing & weighed your bags, be prepared for high fees. 3 of us traveling together with carry-ons that we took free on other airlines (thank you Iberia!) cost us $250!!! Lights were NOT turned off for this overnight flight & VERY noisy"
Pros: "The overall flight was okay. It wasn't as comfortable compared to other flights I've been on and it's a bit difficult to stow luggage. However, I miss my original connection due to flight delays and I was added to a different find free of charge! Very grateful and thankful for that."
Cons: "delayed departure and late notification of delay at 20 minutes to departure board said go to gate, at gate there was a 30 minute delay announcement then there was a further delay when we boarded"
Cons: "Tehran station staff need more trainig and need to be overseen"
Cons: "excessive cisa checks for my wife who is not an EU citizen"
Cons: "40 minute delay due to traffic at destination airport. Not Aegean's fault. Pilot kept us informed. Very nice job."
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket the site stated one bag checked was includEd. But when we checked in we were told we had to pay an additional 35 euros per bag. We did not expect the additional expense."
Cons: "Not a very organized airline from what I can tell. Check-in line took forever and was only staffed by 1 person. Although, this is generally true of most things in Greece (sorry to say) as the companies are simply not as efficient as those in bigger countries."
Pros: "Good food and beverage service on a short duration flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a little cumbersome, having some reading materials would help."
Pros: "Crew were attentive. It was nice there was a meal - but only bread for vegetarians. The pilot sounded very nice. The flight arrived before schedule."
Cons: "Boarding at ATH gate B26 was third world - not enough sitting to accommodate two busy flights: Heraklion and Warsaw - poor AC. On the flight itself the AC was too hot and the air was smelly. In one of the WC there was no water."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.
The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

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: "The earphones could have worked!"
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"
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: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."

Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
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: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
It had a good range of movies but the flight map was broken at my seat. I tried both online and by calling to request a menu and the wait to speak with someone was 45 minutes, and there was nothing on line that allowed me to choose a meal option. The plane was small and all seats were taken. After the meal there were incredibly long lines for only two toilets. Finally, SAS lost our luggage, which can of course happen, but there were more than 50 people waiting around at the carousel and nobody from SAS came to tell us the truth. Finally news trickled back to us by word of mouth and when we got to the SAS baggage consigne, there was only one SAS woman working there and she refused even when asked to announce to us what had happened so we would have some idea. Instead she told someone who told someone else and again by word of mouth we found forms to fill out about who we were and where we were staying. I stood in line for 45 minutes and only then would she explain the luggage had been left in Copenhagen but would arrive that night or the next day--something she could easily have shared with the group instead of leaving everybody in the dark. And at no time did another SAS official or staff member come to help all of us standing there, some of the group waiting with no news for 2 hours when the SAS lady knew full well what had happened. It is shameful. Will never fly SAS again.
SAS seems to like setting up flights that aren't ready to take off and then causing passengers to have to go through multiple transfers to get to their destination. The transfers also don't include the upgrades you paid for previously if their with a different airline. It is better to pay the extra hundred or so dollars to fly with an actual proper airline like Air France. Expect surprises if going with SAS.
Pros: "Coffee/water complimentary regardless of class. 45 minutes in the air."
Cons: "Very small plane. No USB."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was clean."

Pros: "A lot of seating space. very comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi."
Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"
Cons: "Its simple. Turns out i had to pay 360 dollars for my baggages which was hever specified in the time i was purchasing tickets cause they said im flying without and i can come back with. Who is flying without baggage intercontinental for 1 month? And 3 baggages didnt arrived. Thanks"
Pros: "Easy to board, on time and food was good"
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."
Pros: "Good selection of movies and music. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "Our seat location was near the toilets in the middle of the plane. Seemed like an unusual high number of passengers constantly using the toilets throughout the flight which created long ques in the isle and very unpleasant smells. Would never select these seats again."
Cons: "Got asked to leave my seat in row 3 for one further back because I couldnt pull up my ticket mid flight to show it was my seat. Their system had me in another row so I missed out on the extra service offered to that row."
Pros: "Nice staff, good leg room, comfortable seats, complimentary hot beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "One seat was wet and steward had to provide blanket for my friend to sit on, one other persons bag got stained as floor was wet in front of her and bottom of middle seat magazine holder was also wet! 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."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Audio quality not great"
Cons: "No choice in main course. Only one option Long time since wine or beer is not offered free on a “major” airline. The entertainment was interrupted a couple of times with adds. Seats are tight and space more in line with a discount airline."
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: "Crew were very pleasant. Flight was smooth, even though did not leave on time & therefore arrived later."
Cons: "More selection of food, more variety of sandwiches and bread used."
Cons: "Nothing to hate"
Pros: "Everything. Nothing ever goes wrong when I fly SAS which is why I seldom don't. And if something does go wrong their manners and spirits are high and they make sure everyone is still happy and comfortable. Best service in the airline industry."
Cons: "I like everything."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled the morning of."
Pros: "Transfer desk was remote but once found, staff was very good"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet due to late flight/missed connection"
Pros: "It was a normal flight, only a few hours long. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Once again, just some leg, and arm space issues but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Safe departure, flight and landing."
Cons: "An in flight breakfast snack would have been appreciated. The drinks served were okay. Nothing special."
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Pros: "The seat are different from any other airplane I've traveled with the way the recline make a tremendous difference in the comfort."
Cons: "I paid for internet but it never worked"
Cons: "The SAS Supervisor at the gate permitted all preferred-level economy class ticketed passengers to board irrespective of the amount of their carry-on items - in some cases as many as three different items and many over-sized as per the measuring box located at the gate walkway, before conducting a bag-by-bag weight check on all the remaining economy ticketed passengers. Any carry-on item over 8 kgs was refused access to the airplane, and had to be unpacked at the gate in full view of other passengers to remove all electronic devices or breakable items, prior to being left with the gate agent to be placed on the plane as checked luggage. This procedure was conducted in an officious and highly non-customer friendly way, and was embarrassing to those passengers who had to "strip down" their single bag, in particular for female passengers who had overnight clothing and toiletries. A more practical and customer appropriate approach should replace such a draconian procedure."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment. They didn't notify us that there was no wifi until 5 minutes before we boarded. Being older than the electronic age, I did not have movies or games on my phone. Had we had earlier notice, I would have had time to hit the book store. Since the flight was delayed an hour, they had plenty of time to notify us earlier than just before boarding. An 8.5 hour flight without entertainment made the experience unpleasant."
Pros: "I mean, it was how a flight should be, painless."
Cons: "Not water for children."
Pros: "Food, crew, entertainment"
Cons: "We departed almost 3 hours late. No explanation given over speaker. No compensation, no apologies."
Pros: "The boarding was more organized than our other flights with this airline. Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The food was not so good. It looked like they were really trying to cut corners with very small portions."
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: "plenty of space (very few passengers)"
Cons: "scary old plane and a (Estonian) crew with mediocre skills with the local language"
Pros: "The cleanliness"
Cons: "I Had checked several times to make sure I had 2 bags included ( standard for US-EU flights) and every time. At the airport I had to pay an extra charge for my second bag which made the flight very expensive and just ruined the whole experience for me"
Pros: "Clean and good food."
Cons: "It was a fine flight. Nothing to worry about. I liked it."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food option, Drinks are not free(international flight), no toilet paper"

Pros: "We were in coach and it was comfortable and the food was good. The crew was helpful and pleasant. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I have never been on a trans-Atlantic flight before that did not include wine and liquor! Surprising."
Pros: "I arrived alive...."
Cons: "Lost my luggage... can't even track it or give me any sense where it is or if it will be returned. My vacation is ruined and I have to wait 3 weeks before I can request minimal compensation. I'm frustrated and angry, and get little help. Everyone is sorry... but no answers. Never will fly SAS again"
Cons: "Over crowded boarding area - delay at departure"
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: "Overall, the flight was good. As always, I like SAS's service. Crew are friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "When waiting to board the flight, it was difficult to understand when different parts of the plane were boarding because of the soft volume of the loud speakers. All people could really hear was "boarding now", which created a bit of a rush of everyone. It would be helpful if there were an SAS representative to stand next to the line, to physically say to people, 'Okay, we are now only doing priority boarding. If you are priority boarding, please stand her. After that, if you are business class, please stand here. Everyone else, please wait, but know that we will start to board from the back of the plane. Thank you." This will to help guide people BEFORE the ticket check."
Pros: "Friendly crew, the plane was Very new and had wonderful screens for viewing entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Delay was ovet 4 hours."
Pros: "I was traveling internationally alone with my 5-month old daughter. The crew was both kind and accommodating. It was a smooth stress-free trip for all!"
Pros: "Everything about this booking was a disaster. Not the least of which is that my bags are still on London and are total travel time will end up being about 24 hours returning."
Pros: "Seats were better than the international leg."
Cons: "Everything. Offer at least a drink - all drinks were a charge. Staff was rude. Also they lost our luggage."
Pros: "Quick boarding, kind crew"
Cons: "All food and drinks for a cost. I had to run to make it to my gate which was quite a distance and a shuttle ride away."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the service was disgraceful"
Pros: "Hate Ryanair! Cheap fools! Air Lingus are miles better. No pun intended."
Cons: "The flight was nearly an hour late taking off."
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "No free food or drink service."
Pros: "Crew remained civil under duress"
Cons: "Flight delays going over and coming back"
Cons: "The chairs are so uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Never made the flight"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Pros: "David and Kate the flight attendants great banter with passengers"
Pros: "That it only lasted 50 mins"
Cons: "Packed with low class beer drinking plebes."

Cons: "Delayed Dublin to Newcastle flight"
Pros: "Space for legs unlike ryanair"
Pros: "Fast efficient boarding. Short flight so no issues."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Free-for-all boarding was less than ideal. Boarding by seat rows as on Boston to Dublin flight would have been better."
Cons: "The boarding and deplaning was awful'"
Pros: "Swift boarding process, mannerly stewards"
Cons: "When landed, the back door of the aircraft was opened, despite passengers only disembarking form the front. It was very cold."
Cons: "Missing connecting flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Pros: "Dublin airport is cold. Security between plane in correspondance area to crowded and unnecessary."
Cons: "The good part was that I paid for what i received. So anyway why do I complain."
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Not enough legroom I felt like a sardine"
Cons: "Short flight so N/A on food and entertainment. Crew were much nicer and friendly than our first leg of the trip."
Cons: "It was like squeezing everyone into a cattle truck and airport crew double book seats of a few passengers on a full flight so there was confusion on board"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old aircraft. Single aisle narrrow bodied"
Pros: "On time delivery"
Cons: "How many seats can you cram in to an airline cabin? So tightly packed it indicates a base level of disregard by the company for their customers. And nothing offered that didn't cost (no coffee, water...)"
Cons: "Why is it not possible to print a boarding pass from a phone? This cannot be an uncommon activity."
Pros: "Seats comfortable, crew pleasant"
Cons: "My plane was broken, they had no idea when and if we were going fly away. Once the plane was brought to the gate, mechanics had the engine apart inspecting it. Then they caused a fuel spill during fill up which caused the fire trucks to come. This was very discomforting for 300 people waiting for 4+ hours to get on their plane. Once on the plane internet did not work, and my in seat entertainment was rebooting often. I spent 7+ hours at Dublin Airport, sick with a sinus congestion... Plus all the restaurants and shops were closed due to it being after hours of their operation. Last time flying this airline."
Pros: "Your staff are very friendly. But you probably need more staff to help people with self check in as there were a few elderly people standing around not knowing how to use the self check in ."
Cons: "Was not happy about paying extra for my luggage . At the price I paid for my flight I would have expected a luggage allowance of one check in bag."
Pros: "Friendly staff with excellent humour, and an efficiently short flight time."
Pros: "Overall very. I was there when the check station was down caused delays. But staff were very helpful."
Cons: "Getting through security check very slow. Not sure what the answer is but need to be looked urgently. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.. P.kehoe..sunnybank Farm.. Portersize.. Grange con.. Co. Kildare"
Cons: "We reserved specific seats by calling Aer Lingus directly 4 months prior to our trip. When we arrived in Dublin from Paris, we were told by a very uncaring Aer Lingus representative that those seats were not available and were assigned seats that split up our family. He acted as if he could care less. The food was average. I have never flown internationally and had to pay for alcohol. Seat space is never great in economy, but this was one of the worst. Luggage for our entire family was lost for 36 hours."
Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"
Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "Not even free water"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing a week after my flight arrived and no news about it. I can't get in touch with anyone from the airline or who can help me. Pretty terrible experience."
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: "check in process was easy"
Cons: "Our 2 carry-on bags were moved to checked in just before we got in. We were told that it was because it was a full flight. So what do I see in the overhead bins? 2 carry ons with "crew" tags. What bulls**t. This was a very good airline 20 years ago. Not anymore"
Pros: "The flight was so short that the food and entertainment part of this survey are. It applicable. They did serve food for purchase though and they had some good choices"
Cons: "I remember Aer Lingus being a quality airline that treated passengers well. Now charging for tea and water, and exorbitant fees for bags? Felt like Ryanair. If I want to feel like bottom of the barrel I'll just take them next time!"
Pros: "The British Airways portion was exceptional! The Aer Lingus portion was not!"
Cons: "On Departure for Dublin, waited in long line to check in at Aer Lingus only to learn it was co chaired by British Airways, so Aer Lingus would not service us at all. We had no way of knowing since it was sold by Aer Lingus and had an Aer Lingus flight number. Tried to check in on line, but was unable. Waited for Aer Lingus customer service on telephone customer service for more than one hour and finally just gave up. Aer Lingus has no Customer Service at all. Do not deal with Aer Lingus under any circumstances. British Airways met our needs!!"
Pros: "There waa great variety in the entertainment feature."
Cons: "Boarding was absolutely chaotic. There was one call for priority members, and then a call for all remaining rows, stressing that it was final call. This caused a large crowd to rush to the gate and then disorganization when on the plane. Historically, its been much more efficient when you call batches of rows, which clearly prevents overcrowding and allows people more room to stow away carry on bags. Also, i was very disappointed by the food options. As a vegetarian, i had no manageable option because i hadnt preordered. I had no wifi during the days before the flight, i couldnt get online to do it. I find it surprising that you dont at least provide a meatless option, or at least stow away a few extra vegetarian meals. Also, i have never seen that option during booking, nor have i ever recieved an email to consider meal options. Overall, the accessability of meatless food is extremely disappointing."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks. I expected at least water and a small snack."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
