Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Aer Lingus webpage is terrible. Kayak’s is excellent, but I tried to change seats, it would not let me."
Pros: "Really liked the flight staff.. great service and all very humorous. More room than on most flights and everything was on time"
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."
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: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Waiting for an hour to disembark"
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: "Good to have movies to pass time on lng flight."
Cons: "2 days prior to returnflight I called stating the at was not enough time to catch a flight transfer having to go thru tsa again . B A assurred me I was o.k. ..It was not. A person should not have to physically run and have stress of wait to get thru TSA then run again back,get on train to next plane.Other passengers then said "ou are why we are starting late". It was a transfer off a plane from Ireland not a traffic issue. BA SHOULD HAVE PUT ME ON A LATER FLIGHT. TO SEATTLE."
Cons: "No wifi. No tvs. 1985 just called and they want their no entertainment airplane back. This is 2017.... get with the program!"
Pros: "The snack provided onboard was tasty. The flight attendants took their job seriously."
Cons: "Southwest Airlines style seating with a foldable tray table over a middle seat. Sold as a business class cabin at a high price for an hour and a half flight but we left feeling ripped off. No boarding order and overall chaos boarding. I feel that for the price and being advertised as business class I was taken for a ride so to speak, and not in a good way. This would not qualify as business class on any other airline irregardless of how short the leg was."
Cons: "Air Lingus is awful! It had 1:20 hours delay that resulted in missing the second flight. The check in people don't know their job. The lady named Michelle in Dublin almost killed me with her lack of knowledge and slowness. The airplane was extremely dirty including diner tables, seats, and bathrooms. It is the worst airline that I ever flied with. In Dublin the check in and information desk of air lingus were awuful. Full of attitude and absolutely no knowledge."
Pros: "Luggage delayed."
Cons: "Both legs were late. Outgoing was significantly late. Surprise charge of 75 euros to check a bag. Almost as much as a seat."
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: "Comfortable seating"
Cons: "No beverage service."
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: "My screen worked and there was a good selection of movies. I also had a window seat which was great. Any seat except the middle, is always great."
Cons: "No vegetarian options."
Cons: "The metal boxes below the seats mean that the little space allowed to a person is now all the more clipped. My backpack wouldn't even fit under the seat. My knees are already pressed up against the chair in front of me, now there's nowhere for me to stuff my feet even."
Pros: "British Airways offered me a direct flight from Dublin to Philadelphia on their sister carrier American Airlines."
Cons: "British Airways carrier American Airlines was not clearly notified on tickets/boarding passes/itineraries nor was there any communication between the carriers, so when I checked into British Airways I got no help expediting my check in at American. It was confusing and no one was helpful and instead flip. At American every interaction, whether about connecting flight boarding passes, my five and half hour delay or seating left me feeling unimportant and disrespected. I will never use either airline again nor Kayak"
Pros: "Short flight but thought there would be beverage service????"
Cons: "Rude at check in. Late taking off."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good"
Cons: "This was an old plane with the cvs in the ceiling and only every 8 or so seats so the entertainment was difficult to see and much needed during a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "British Airways certainly has slipped. Very mediocre service."
Cons: "Didn't tell us if/when we would be eating. I called for a flat attendant twice, with no response. When I pointed this out, she said that she knew they would be coming through the cabin with drinks, so she didn't bother to respond. Just so long as it was easy for her..."
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: "Great meals, entertainment options, and service. Perfect landing of the 747 as well."
Cons: "Not the fault of British Airways, but Denver International Airport has a cumbersome and lengthy process for the re-entry of U.S. Citizens. We stood in two different lines for over an hour to be screened for customs."
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: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, good food, individual entertainment consoles, and plane was not very crowded."
Cons: "Extra charge for items traditionally included on trans-Atlantic flights, entertainment choices dated and limited, assigned seating clumped travelers together instead of spreading them out among available travelers."
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: "Arrived ahead of time."
Cons: "No free alcoholic drinks. Seats are barely up to international standard - narrow, as is the aisle. Very poor quality food."
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."
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"
Cons: "The sign said it would board by rows but they did general call and it was ridiculous on a flight this large. Nothing"
Pros: "Staff was cheerful"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Small seats."
Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."
Cons: "Good entertainment choice but terrible touch screens"
Cons: "they lost all our luggage"
Cons: "We were late taking off due to the airport and plane not sharing passenger data, and then forced to delay exiting the plane and then forced to sit on a bus rather than enter the terminal."
Pros: "Cleanness and convenience."
Cons: "Seat selection only 24 hours ahead."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a little rough."
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Less time at the AirPort after landing"
Cons: "Plane was late as most Ryanair flights in the afternoon are expected to be."
Pros: "We had an emergency exit seat with extra leg room."
Cons: "Check in, delays, late arrival, luggage pick up too slow."
Pros: "Not sure?"
Cons: "Very Spartan service with little effort to make for a more pleasant flight."
Pros: "The fact that I won’t fly this airline again."
Cons: "We were delayed 1 hour on the ground in Dublin. The captain never addressed the passengers and the crew - despite being asked to allow passengers with tight connections to depart first - never allowed this to happen. Insensitive and uncaring. We almost missed a connection that would hav caused us to lose $7000. When the crew was asked to find out if we could make up time in the air they never came back with an answer. Thanks Ryan air - next time take a lesson from Southwest Airlines."
Cons: "Delayed , everything is nickel and dime"
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour with no announcement or reasons given."
Pros: "No frills but got us there safely on time."
Cons: "Had to walk on the Tarmac."
Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap!"
Cons: "I find it incredibly ridiculous that a flight is half full and I’m deliberately seated away from my husband just so Ryan Air can make an extra £4 per seat. I get that they want to make money but that’s pushing it too far. I sat next to someone who was also traveling with someone else. That lady’s companion came back and told her the seat next to her was empty. By then everyone was already settled in. Is it really worth the £8 for two people? I’m sorry but that’s just petty."
Pros: "on time quick boarding from both ends of the plane friendly staff"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing free, not even a cup of water"
Pros: "Very efficient processes and was incredibly reasonably priced. Great for flights under 2 hours"
Cons: "Seemed like everything was an ad to purchase something. I get that this is the business model, but I don't have to like it."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in desk was rude and condescending."
Pros: "The food options were pretty good."
Cons: "The seats didn't move back at all!!!"
Cons: "Extra baggage cost"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Haven't received a response to my late flight from London to Dublin from Ryan Air- flight Fr143"
Cons: "Our flight was significantly delayed and we as passengers received zero communication about time of delay and when we were expecting to depart. The lack of communication was frustrating"
Cons: "The seats were very small and my middle seat's foam was flat enough that I felt like I was sitting on a metal bar."
Pros: "I only had an hour to grab my luggage and my next boarding pass. I made it to my flight with over ten minutes to spare."
Pros: "Short flighy"
Cons: "Charge you for everything under the sun. Breath wrong and it will cost you €50"
Cons: "Bum-rush for boarding; "final call" for boarding happening more than 30 minutes before flight was due to leave."
Cons: "Got to my seat on the plane and it was covered with potato chip crumbs left behind by the previous flight's passengers and obviously not cleaned. Got harassed and threatened by the gate attendant while boarding because I didn't have a Visa check stamp on my boarding pass even though I had visited check-in and was not given one."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard and painful."
Cons: "that we need the Ryan Air app and can't print our boarding passes at the airport."
Pros: "They didn't make me check my bag on the first flight but did on the second. It cost me 50 Euro, which is more than I paid for the flight. Overall, good airline if you pack light."
Cons: "Ryanair is really pretty bad at the customer one on one model. They DO NOT WANT TO HELP AT ALL !! it just seems to me if you are in customer service you should understand that people who travel from other countries are helping with your economy,YOUR JOB, If you don't fit the model move on,find something else to do in your life. Don't make me feel like I owe you,really you owe me a easy time getting through all the troubles of your airline.If some one from the airline reads this you should play under cover and see what i mean ,act as a person who needs help,does not understand your accent .you just really are bad !!"
Pros: "I didn't really have anything positive to say about Ryanair"
Cons: "The fact that a carry on on any other airline would be free except with Ryanair! Be prepared to pay extra for your carry on!"
Pros: "The flight was A-okay, but the experience leading up to it was not."
Cons: "First of all, the website is laid out in such a way that it's easy to make unnessasarry additional purchases. We ended up purchasing seats at the very back of the plane. We were unable to print our boarding tickets prior to checking in at the airport and after waiting in line for help, were directed to self help computers that we had to pay-to-use. These were not working and after lining up for help several more times (to get change to pump into the computers etc...) and sending off a 'chat help request we finally left and got a different clerk. While this second clerk was telling us we'd have to pay for her help, someone else overheard our challenges and took over from the clerk, printed our boarding tickets at no further charge and got us on our way. While we certainly appreciate the service at the end, it should never have come to that."
Pros: "Good price - the plane was clean and appeared well maintained."
Cons: "The airlines does nickle and dime you on other fees. I find it annoying that you need to print your boarding pass at home (or incur a fee) and still stand in line at the desk to check your boarding pass. We found it worth the extra fee for priority boarding. It improves the experience."
Pros: "But not in a great way! Seat was pretty comfortable. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a loud booze cruise flight from Dublin to Malaga. Very happy Irish holiday makers. it was loud but the passengers mostly were good sorts. The flight attendants were pretty rude--never excusing themselves or apologizing for pushing past people. The toilet in the front was disgusting. NO HaNDSOAP. Told attendant--no soap, she said. Very nasty situation. i think it will be my only Ryanair trip."
Pros: "Head steward was very solicitous of my husband who was experiencing first signs of food poisoning. Allowed him to stand at front while passengers were boarding to get fresh air. Checked on him several times during the flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded and no leg room. Knees were up against the back seat of seat in front. There was NO SOAP in any of the three toilets! When I asked attendant the apologized but didn't have any. Gate person pulled us out of boarding line to make us check our bags even though our bags were smaller than most everyone else's carryons. We were the only ones that were checked. Can't help but feel that we were profiled as Americans.traveling."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude people working."
Pros: "The flight was okay."
Cons: "One of the attendants was very rude to my group leaving Ireland. We had previously checked in to our flight but didn't have our boarding passes printed. Instead giving us direction, she sent us away to figure out how to get our boarding passes in an airport we had been in."
Pros: "i made my flight and saved a lot of money."
Cons: "i was shocked that i had to pay for water."
Cons: "Rude staff at airport, confusing self check in, high bag fees, expectation of a printed boarding pass with no access to a printer, selling goods on flight."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice, and the flight was uneventful. Will fly again and learned lesson about luggage fees."
Cons: "Had two bags to check. Paid for two bags in advance. Didn't know there was a total weight allowance across two bags. First bag ate up most of total weight allowance which forced me to pay for the overage on the second bag of €70. I thought I could bump up my second bag to the higher weight class when checking in instead of having to pay the overage charge that was three times as much. Found out during boarding they were checking bags for free...should have done carry on and avoided the extra costs."
Cons: "Extremely expensive to check your bags. If you prepay and the weight is over, you have to pay an additional 10 Euro for each kilogram over."
Cons: "Gum and candy wrappers stuck in the sides of the seat. Crew spoke poor English. Co-fliers were loud, drunk and unruly."
Cons: "over head was so small could not get bag in that was perfectly fine on other flights. And it is the only airline that we had to go to verify passport . All other did it while we were in line."
Cons: "Unruly Irish football fans. Loud, obnoxious. When we landed in LGW 10 stood up to exit while the plane was still moving. Delayed exit."
Pros: "Crew was great. Professional, funny."
Cons: "Very cramped in the plane. Stood for an hour at the gate, not enough seats. Stood on Tarmac in the rain."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. They charged me 50 euro and checked my bag because it was 2 inches wider. Lines are long and slow to board."
Pros: "Started on time, landed on time, loaded fast. low price. About what I expected."
Cons: "Felt like I was at a carnival as they were selling for much of the flight (snacks, drinks, catalog sales, etc). I never checked luggage, but it would not have been an inexpensive flight if I had to check my bag. Also, you MUST check in online or there is another big fee."
Pros: "They should bring their service to the United States. I enjoyed it and the $499 savings over top named carriers"
Pros: "Fast, once we got going"
Cons: "They were late, selling stuff on entire flight. When landed we had to walk up stairs we suitcases. I could do it but what about the Ederly."
Cons: "When we arrived at eh queue for boarding the line was a bit serpentine since no staff was there to keep straight. This was okay until another group came into the area and then it was a disaster. i went to the desk to seek help and was abruptly told don't worry it will be sorted out. Never was and as a result people who had arrived early then ended up back in the lien and were forced to check carry on luggage. Ryan needs to set up a person at the entry lines as there are up to 7 flights that could be queuing at the same time . Not good"
Cons: "Your check in process in Dublin is extremely confusing and it's absolutely ridiculous that you charge 45 euros PER PERSON if you need your boarding passes printed. The worst part is that the person who directed us to the line to get the boarding pass could have at the least mentioned we could save the money and check in on line to save the money. We were in the two hour window of time and would have been able to. We were shifted from line to line to line. Very disappointed. Unfortunately having to pay the 90 euro completely ruined the entire flight."
Cons: "I am a musician traveling with a guitar. The staff was extremely rude and not accomodating when it came to treatment of my instrument. I was not even allowed to attempt to bring my guitar on the plane. I was told it was a full flight but after I was forced drop the guitar and borded the aircraft I not only found that there was ample room in the overhead bins for it but there were some no shows and plenty of extra seating which was used to store luggage too large for the overheads. I asked the flight attendant if I could retrieve my instrument so it could go on the plane and was told no. It is apparently much easier to travel with golf clubs than a musical instrument on Ryanair. Never again."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I paid online for a checked bag and they made me pay for it again at the airport. Staff at the airport wasn't very friendly."
Cons: "I was told I didn't make a on-line checking, and I was forced to pay 45 euro extra. That was nasty. You should have told more clearly about the on-line checkin."
