Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight not being delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and boarding went smoothly and ontime."
Cons: "Seats are very close together. Young child behind me kicked the seat most of the way. Bags took a very long time to come out."
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Could do with some entertainment ie. a film"
Cons: "We were led to believe checked bag was included in fare. It was not and cost an extra 50 Euros."
Cons: "2 hour delay on an hour flight"
Pros: "When I finally settled into my seat on the British Airline and that Hostess came around and offered me a couple of free drinks that was the best thing that happened to me all day."
Cons: "For an older couple like us did not like having to climb the steps up into the Plane and being out in the rain did not help. However that was not the worst part of the arrangement between getting off the Aer Lingus plane and with so little time to reach the gate for our BA flight to Denver it was a total disaster. Due to a minor problem my wife had with her foot I had asked for a wheel-chair to be available when we got off the plane at Heatrow. Good job that I did because with out their help we would never have made it in time for your flight to Denver. Between up and down in elevators, running along the corridors, in and out of a bus and I myself trying to catch up with those poor attendants. I was sorry that I did not get a second wheel chair for my self. Only for the flight was delayed by about 20 minutes we would have missed the flight. Who ever was responsible for making the arrangements of just allowing a time of 1 hour and 10 minutes between flights needs to figure out a better time schedule before people of our age ends up getting stressed out and end up with a heart attack. Very stressful indeed, believe I will never let this happen to me again. Fly/Us you need to fix this."
Pros: "The crew are the friendliest, nicest crew. I’ve flown Iberia and JetBlue the past year and the Aer Lingus crew are so much more hospitable and service oriented. From cockpit announcements keeping passengers up to date on flight info, to food service, the crew does an excellent job."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was too chaotic. There seemed to be a lot of confusion. They were boarding rows 8-23 but no one was getting through the gate to the plane. Before anyone from this group got on the plane, they added rows 24-46. Ambiguity causes stress. A more orderly lining up of passengers would be less stressful."
Pros: "I love Aer Lingus, they appear to be always on time and nice comfy seats. No problem boarding, was nice and quick."
Cons: "Nothing to not like at mo."
Cons: "NO complimentary drinks or snacks. Seats are bolt upright. Not comfortable."
Pros: "Shannon is a very easy airport."
Cons: "I was unable to get my seats assigned from America. I had to go to the Aer Lingus desk when I arrived to get seat assignment."
Pros: "The flight itself was great"
Cons: "The lines to get on the plane were insane. We waited for over an hour to check our bags because the kiosks weren’t working. Our luggage gate closed at 1115 and they waited until 1130 to call us out of the line because it was last call. Then they proceeded to tell us that our luggage may not make it because we didn’t push people out of the way and throw down grandmas? Unorganized."
Pros: "took off early once they had accounted for everyone, and arrived a little early too."
Cons: "While I didn't have to check my bag on the first longer flight, I did have to check it on the connecting flight which delayed me somewhat in getting into the city of London. Not awful, but strange... Free-for-all when boarding, not nearly as organized as it was at JFK."
Pros: "The efficient flight but no drinks or snacks w/o purchase"
Pros: "The fly from London to new work was very good Very comfortable , there were many empty seats since the Hamburg airport on Sunday had a mayor outage And we were forced to change our fly and stay one more day , the representative on the phone were very helpful! When we contact them to check out fly"
Cons: "We lost a day since we supposed to return on Monday but because the outage we were forced to stay one more day in our hotel at our own expense We had pay for insurance but not sure if was cover at that moment we were tired and frustrated since they block the entry to the airport and we were force to turn around and go back to our hotel witch was hrs away , couldn’t Get nothing near by everything was bucked and all airports around as well The return was very stressful but we enjoy our stay in Germany"
Pros: "Flight was great and very friendly staff. Not sure why I couldn’t check in online."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The cabin and restrooms were a bit dirty. The seats weren’t the most comfortable and the attendants didn’t make as many rounds as expected for a 10 hour day flight."
Pros: "Nice seats food was decent crew excellent"
Cons: "Not enough room"
Pros: "Boarding was good....overhead room for carry-ons probably due to a less than full flight. The entertainment was varied, current movies, and wide selection of music. The crew was as efficient as possible and accommodating. However, we all have learned not to expect much."
Cons: "Comfort is lacking as is the case with jammed seating on all planes these days. It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, but since I resent it being done to me, I do not do it either out of respect for the passenger behind me."
Cons: "Short flight but had to pay for snacks or drinks on Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Ahead is schedule"
Cons: "Even had to pay for coffee"
Pros: "Boarding Gate crew were good."
Cons: "Seat cushions are worn out. Need new foam. Hostesses spent more time talking to each other during food and beverage service than to the passenger."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice looking, very friendly, smelled nice they could not have been warmer people!!"
Cons: "Paying for beverages seemed a bit much."
Pros: "entertainment was great on board food was good (for airline food) staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not able to ceheck in on line and then was put on standby for a ticket I purchased in January. Others in my party got their seats at the airport when they checked in. Two of us were put on standby. Food had a problem with coordinating serving and there were few liquids offered for an overseas flight where it is important to stay hydrated. One liquid with each meal. If I had known I would have bought water at the airport before boarding."
Pros: "Loved being on a flight for holiday, and knowing I wasn't being overcharged for needless frills."
Cons: "I don't remember if they served a drink, I know things were for sale. But that seems to be the European way."
Pros: "We left on time and landed a bit early. Only 1 1/2 hour flight, so no food, drink or service, but it got us there."
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."
Pros: "Efficient staff and timely I would book again for sure"
Pros: "I liked the straightforward flight home. Always friendly staff."
Cons: "I also loved that my return flight was changed to a much better convenient time ar no extra cost. I recommend this site for anyone to book their flights and hotels.."
Pros: "We landed safely."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "I requested an aisle or window seat and was not able to get one."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Hard landing."
Pros: "Our return trip from Shannon to JFK was the best flying experience we have ever had. I requested an aisle seat for my 6'5" husband and we were given the emergency aisle. The flight crew was outstanding- Ashley and Hazel could not have been nicer to us. My TV set was broken in my seat but I did not care as I had a lot of reading to do. It was an outstanding return trip from a wonderful time in Ireland"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The fact that I could charge my i phone..."
Cons: "The lax attitude to service and customer satisfaction there was a problem with the entertainment system, took over an hour to get attention... But no positive resolution..."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful."
Pros: "We were late for our connecting flight because of a plane issue and no one from the Air Lingus did anything to help us get to our next flight out of London to Munich. We asked several times and they said follow the signs ."
Cons: "The connection between AMS and IAD at DUB was simply insane, only 10 minutes to walk back to security, us customs and another security check when the plane from AMS was parked NEXT TO plane I was about to board. Lost luggage in DUB because of it. Very bad experience !!"
Pros: "Pilot welcomed us on board, cabin crew were friendly and attentive"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service and complimentary late flight snacks with beverages a nice touch you don't get on other transatlantic flights"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. The movie selections were outstanding."
Cons: "When it came time to choose our seats, there was no indication of where the bathrooms or any walls were. We chose a row in the middle if the plane. Come to find out it was against the bathrooms. Seats were unable to recline making for a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Staff - attitude and so forth. All was done nicely"
Pros: "- prompt boarding - friendly staff - good movie selections"
Cons: "- not enough leg room - incredibly cramped seats Granted, I was stuck in the middle, but it was impossible for the people of either side of me to avoid encroaching on what little space was mine. It was an almost unbearable experience and I flown many times, with a variety of airlines."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and friendly. Entertainment system worked well."
Cons: "The seats were atrocious. I literally felt lost feeling in my legs at one point. They are super old and worn down with no real padding to speak of. I had to sit on top of a pillow for partial comfort but that didn't feel great either."
Pros: "Nice crew and helpful check in person."
Cons: "We waited outside in the heat for 35 minutes. Insane! How is that a “priority” experience?! We were all drenched in sweat before take off?! Horrible!"
Cons: "AC needs to be on as the cabin was extremely warm on entering"
Pros: "The crew is doing its best job given the cards they gave been given to play with !"
Cons: "It was all good for a budget airline."

Pros: "Quick flight, low cost."
Cons: "Didn’t follow the rules with the checked bag as was unclear. No problem, but staff member aggressively explaining over and over when understood the first time. Would rather have just been charged than getting and ear bashing. Staff were main problem, not particularly friendly. Fault with plane?"

Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "The check in process"
Cons: "Flight was late. They announced that it was time to start boarding so we left our seating area in the airport just to go stand around for a half hour. Then they scanned our passes and made us stand outside in the windy cold for another 15 minutes. They should’ve let us stay where we were until the plane was actually ready."

Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Delays and lack of clarity and updating"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and very helpful with my sister struggling with her baggage due to her breaking her arm a few weeks ago. The crew on the ground at Shannon and on-board the flight could not do any more for us."
Cons: "The seating arrangements whereby we had to pay extra to sit together despite us booking the three tickets all at the same time. Ryanair are over-charging their customers with these hidden charges which are only declared at the check-in stage"
Pros: "Cheap efficient flight."
Cons: "Only two toilets were working. Big queues. Flight delayed by a passenger vomiting with chest pains as we left the standing. She refused to disembark until the captain insisted! Not Ryanair fault."
Cons: "The really need one of their newer planes ✈️ for the lanzorote route. Longer seatbelts needed."
Pros: "Got an extra leg room seat when asked for it"
Cons: "Late arriving got of plane was left waiting when asked when the bus to terminal we were told it's wierd it's Stansted airport"
Pros: "The usual Ryanair ‘quality’: you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to technical issues… issues that were detected with all passengers and luggage onboard! 2 hours anda half delay!"
Pros: "Punctual flight. Pleasant cabin staff"
Cons: "Cabin was so cold that ice was forming on the inside of the cabin wall. Paid for adjacent seats - unnecessary as there were available adjacent seats we could have been allocated."
Pros: "This airline sucks"
Pros: "Great Flight. Great Staff"
Pros: "Flight on time, very polite crew and the average experience you expect from Ryanair."
Cons: "The whole luggage handling is a nightmare. If you fly with just one luggage, be prepared to have to take everything you care from it and hold it close to your chest, as Ryanair will probably try to check your luggage."
Pros: "Always travel Ryan air when possible just returned from Italy having flown with them so was disappointed when we were just left hanging around with this flight"
Cons: "Not being told what was happening having people waiting at stanstead paying for parking"
Cons: "Not organized by any means We went back and forth in line. No one communicated that we needed to prepay before we stood on the long line to check only to get upfront and asked to go to another counter Staff not polite seemed annoyed Then after paying, got back in line and they didn't even ask for receipt of payment"
Cons: "On both flights we were called tbrough for boarding only to be kept queueing for over half an hour before actually boarding the plane. On the flight to East Midlands when everyone was on board we were then told due to an air traffic restriction we had to wait another 45 minutes before we could take off. On the return flight after queueing for half an hour only after I asked why we had waited so long were we told that the plane HADN't EVEN LANDED YET. So both flights were delayed with no explanation from anyone. Also all announcements on both flights were very difficult to hear above the engine noise. I am afraid that this experience has made me realise that I will NEVERTHELESS fly with Ryanair again. I would rather pay the extra and fly with a better airline."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight was late to take off, and had to queue for 30 minutes at Shannon - before the plane had even landed. At stansted then had to get a long bus to the terminal and wait on the bus for 10 minutes because they couldn't open the doors. Luckily after a sprint to the station we made the last stansted express of the evening (£28 return each - 'London' airports for you)"
Cons: "The delay of the flight"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "cramped seat"
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Pros: "They are al so helpful"
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: "I chose Ryanair because of their 10kg cabin baggage allowance. They've really improved from my past (and after that I swore I'd never use them again) experience. Really slick."
Cons: "Constant trying to sell you extras."
Pros: "The price of the flight and that they had direct from Barcelona to Sofia. Also that they gave us a free checked bag so that we did not have to carry it onto the already cramped plane."
Cons: "The boarding process was slow and late. When we booked the flight it was stated that we got a snack and water, but we had to pay for everything. Drinks were almost double that of other discount carriers that were more comfortable. Also, a very expensive box of chocolates, that we purchased as a gift, was stolen from one of our free checked bags, either in Barcelona or Bulgaria. We did not notice until we got home and unpacked."
Pros: "It was very cheap"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Pros: "The price was fantastic! the best around :)"
Cons: "There was no notification from cabin crew to advise us to ensure we collect our luggage BEFORE we go through the glass doors at Gatwick. We were expecting to show our passport and collect our luggage from the carrousel but didn't realise until after we went through the glass doors and had to wait over 40 mins for it to be brought to us. What was so astonishing- we were told we weren't the only ones this happened to. It would be very useful if cabin crew made the passengers aware of this to avoid it happening time after time with others/flights"
Cons: "I got wet standing on tarmac in rain"
Pros: "On time, great price."
Cons: "Cold breeze when I can out of the Terminal building!"
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"
Cons: "We were delayed for a while and no one told us what was going on."

Cons: "The customer service is nonexistent and the companies policies ar designed to take advantage of customers."
