Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "no communication and a few apologies6"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "We were about 45 minutes late taking off so it was stressful for all of us that had a connecting flight."
Cons: "Tough time. British airways wasn’t very helpful. Once our gate was changed no one told us or gave new boarding pass. We did have 7 hours to figure it out. But a clue where to go would have been nice. Missed my connection. Shuttle and hotel was a mess. Got a few hours of sleep outside the airport. Maybe I’ll get to Los Angeles soon."
Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return firstname.lastname@example.org or 07799411994 for response"
Pros: "The customer agents were helpful and just great"
Cons: "That out of 4 agents and the manager one simple agent wasn’t as nice"
Pros: "flight was great, safety video and pilots were great. 8/10 would recommend. Was great for the price. Attendants were great."
Cons: "No free beverage or food even on international flight. In the exit seats, there are major pros and cons. The exit row has amazing leg room, but you can’t use your tv screen like other passengers (can’t listen to movies because there is no aux plug and no usb to charge your phone like other passengers)"
Pros: "Overall it was fine. Friendly staff, everything pretty efficient."
Cons: "Truly disappointed to find that BA has decided to charge for ANY beverage whatsoever, even tea. I have such fond memories of flying BA years ago. My husband and I so enjoyed the disposable plastic blue teacups that we brought them home with us and still use them as kitchen scoops all these years later. I know that may seem silly, but even without that nostalgic memory, it just feels SUPER unpleasant to have to pay for the basic (non-alcoholic) beverage service. Honestly, just charge a few bucks extra on the ticket in the first place."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind"
Cons: "Charge you for even instant coffee, the alla cart way of doing things is taking over the industry. all about making more money"
Pros: "Gate agents good. Same with cabin crew"
Cons: "No AC charging. Legroom in business was tight"
Pros: "Only wish they would've put me on the direct flight"
Cons: "The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and there was planty leg room. A great airline to fly with and I'd highly recommend them."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "Great staff, ultra professional"
Pros: "Finally getting to my destination 3 hours late."
Cons: "Issues with check-in, flight delayed multiple times, gate changes multiple times, non communication from attendants."
Cons: "Not the best airplane food I had, luckily I packed some snacks before leaving Düsseldorf"
Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"
Pros: "The flight itself was good and the crew was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "We won't go through Dublin again. The walk from the arrival gate to the maze of bureaucracy ahead was way too long. The airline should have not have that tight a connection knowing all the screening that must be done to board the next flight. We were held up at every entry point, not told what to expect and thus had to prepare for screening on the fly, while hoping our plane would wait for us, which it did and the many people who boarded after us. Entertainment system was slow and non-responsive and my husband's had to be reset to even start to work. One bag left behind, but delivered promptly within days of arrival"
Pros: "This was a BA codeshare but operated by AerLingus,supposedly a 4* airline."
Cons: "So called 4*"
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "Seating was very packed"
Pros: "All staff were very helpful and polite"
Cons: "This flight was delayed. When it came to boarding my husband who needs special assistance was first taken to board first but then had to be brought back as refuelling was not done and was then last on board. When we arrived at Heathrow his special assistance was not there and we had to wait for about 10/15 minutes. It is stressful traveling with someone who needs help and even worse when there are delays. We were advised that we could leave the aircraft which we did but we were left waiting in an area without any toilets which is a problem for him"
Pros: "Luggage delayed."
Pros: "Prop plane but on time with professional staff"
Pros: "Attendance were friendly and helpful and courteous. The plane was clean and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "We were loaded onto a shuttle bus and then stood there (some sat, I could only stand...) for 10+ minutes until the last passenger arrived. Not sure what the airline could do differently there unless it's run a "late person shuttle," and from other passengers' remarks, this was unusual for this transfer."
Cons: "No food, and no entertainment. An older airplane"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Generally I like the staff at BA and they are mostly on time"
Cons: "No complimentary drink or snack, how come?"
Cons: "We are really upset that Aer Lingus and/or Bitish Airways lost our baggeage! All our clothes, toiletries, medicine, and other personal belongings are MIA and we want these two airlines to work together and expedite finding and tertuning our luggage."
Pros: "Connection desk and gate attendance were the only people who tried to help fix the mistakes made by the people in madrid. Global access allowed to quicken our time spent going home after the mets that was our flight home."
Cons: "the attendant at the connection desk did not understand why we had not been given boarding passes or allowed to check in to our flights in madrid. the gate attendants did not understand that even though we were numbers 72 and 73 person processed we were not allowed to check in, receive boarding passes or allowed to sit next to my sister who's reservation was connected to mine"
Pros: "Aer Lengus is great. Complete contrast with the trip from the US to Heathrow with BA-D. That leg was horrible, one of top two worst over my 30+?years of traveling internationally Viva Aer Lengus comfort and customer relations, what a difference with BA-Disastrous customer support in Heathrow"
Cons: "Aer Lengus is great"
Pros: "A little more leg room than regular flights, yummy food, more bathrooms. Even though I couldn't sleep during the whole 10 hours, there was a lot to watch and play provided by the airline."
Cons: "During the flight, I called the service button a few times and no one came. I don't mind going up and getting water, but it was a hassle being in a middle seat and asking my fiancé to let me out several times."
Pros: "That you could watch movies and shows from the headrest, very helpful to pass the time. They fed us a lot (very salty) and were very nice."
Cons: "I was in the back in the cheap seats (row 50) with a friend, we are both small to regular size and the guy seated in the aisle seat was very small and it was still difficult to get up and around each other to use the restroom. Oh well I paid $462 for round trip and arrived safely, that's what matters most."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. BA said I couldn't get a seat before 24 hrs before. Then when I tried to get a seat assignment I was told (by email) to contact Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that I should have called before 24 hrs before, and that seats were now in control of the gate (this still 22 hrs before flight time). Total lack of coordination. 2. At check-in I was first told that my bag was too big for carry-on, although BA had accepted it. I shrunk it down. Then I was told it weighed too much at 15 kg. When I asked why BA accepted the weight I was told BA's weight limit was different. 3. Net net, if BA is "arranging" the flight through a code-share it should have responsibility for insuring I am treated like a BA customer. Aer Lingus' customer treatment leads much to be desired."
Pros: "swift boarding allowed for an earlier departure and arrival 30min ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "I waited 30min at the priority check in queue while being first in line this whole time. There was only one counter open for normal check in and one for priority when I arrived and after 20min waiting, the priority counter closed completely and there was just one counter open remaining, with just 10-15min before the check in closed. We had to wait another 10min to be able to check in our luggage! On arrival, luggage took 45min to just start delivering, completely wiping out the 30min arrival ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Website didn't work for online checkin. Flight only half full but somehow I was assigned to the coldest seat on the plane with an exit door obstructing legroom. Toilets were out of order and only one was available for most of an eight-hour flight. Airline charged for drinks. Food (chicken stew in a brown gravy?) was repellant. Entertainment choices dated and uninteresting. Luggage lost, with one agent available to slowly help more than 30 people. Luggage missing for over 24 hours. No response from airline. Enough."
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The movie selection was really bad and not updated. They lost my luggage, but not only me, 10 more people luggage. And when we went to reclaim they didn't even have papers for all of us. Really unorganized"
Cons: "Terrible food, no option available online to order special meals, the restrooms were filthy and not looked after. We are never flying either British Airways or Aer Lingus in future. It was a big mistake !"
Pros: "The boarding process was better than I expected in such a large plane. There were multiple lanes open to check in at the gate."
Cons: "The crew were not very attentive or polite when asked a question or for help. Then tended to go up and down the aisle with their carts with out stopping or offering anything and if someone asked them for a drink or something they would tell the, they would have to come back. The food on this trip was terrible and not well planned out. They ran out of the meat option for dinner before they were even halfway through the plane. At least 100 people had no food option. What was left was something with a cheese sauce cooked into it so it stunk with the foil was peeled back. I would have preferred the traditional peanut package to that."
Cons: "The plane was old, so the entertainment system was buggy. It flickered, got loud then quiet and would reset over and over again."
Cons: "Good entertainment choice but terrible touch screens"
Cons: "they lost all our luggage"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a little rough."
Pros: "The actual aircraft was well maintained and inviting. The crew and the food, as always, was outstanding."
Cons: "Two things: 1) My screen wasn't functioning properly. I did tell a crew member and she re-started it for me; but, it continued to glitch and was, for the most part, unusable. (The touch screen was unresponsive and kept getting stuck). 2) When the person in front of me reclined, her seat was very close to my face, giving me very little room. I didn't want to do the same thing to the person behind me, so I kept my seat upright, which didn't help. I only got up once during the whole flight and I know it was uncomfortable for the reclining person because there was no way to exit without jostling her."
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Hard brake on the landing."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats for a long haul flight. Don't appreciate having to pay for a seat assignment!!!"
Pros: "Good service from check till off the plane"
Cons: "I did not take the flight due to a delay in the gate being displayed. I was check in with baggage and everything, but I get to the gate for them to tell me that it was too late. So the 2nd part of flight was a waste of money since I was not able to board my flight. Kayak would not give a refund or book another flight. So I was stuck in Ireland and had to spend another $1100 to get home. This was the worst experience ever and I will never book anything through Kayak again!"
Pros: "Pilots were great. Extremely rough weather (Desmond) but they did an awesome job! Crew great as well. Security thorough. Arrived in London safe and sound. To me that's the name of the game."

Pros: "Quick easy boarding."
Cons: "2 Bachelourette parties were on the flight, they boarded already drunk. Singly loudly and shouting profanities across the plane.

Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."
Cons: "Group of men, loud drunk and obnoxious. Filling the aisles, the bathrooms, swearing and shouting. The crew seemed powerless to quieten them- or perhaps the money they spent on booze and food persuaded the airline to let them ruin the calm of the flight?"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "2.5 hours late for a 60 min flight. Got given snack tokens as compensation but they applied only to airport shops that were all shut"
Pros: "Regular stuff. Mostly good."

Pros: "Nothing !!!"
Cons: "Twenty five minutes late taking off. Flight time 1hr 5 mins ... Time waiting on Tarmac on arrival 1hr 1 min before we got to terminal."

Cons: "1h delay in both ways!"
