Cons: "The food. We waited too long to take off and there was no announcement why we were sitting on waiting..."
Pros: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Customer interaction is a joke"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our bags were lost, no apologies (in fact, the phone was put down on me twice), when the bags were returned after 24 hours, one was damaged and had to be replaced at my expense....no chance of a refund. My family and I will NEVER TRAVEL WITH AER LINGUS AGAIN....the worst airline in the world"
Pros: "On a 7 hour flight you want comfort. It was so smooth and easy. Watched movies, read, just relaxed. I've flown with Aer lingus before and it was just as amazing. I will ALWAYS use Are Lingus when I fly to the UK or Ireland and Shannon is a Gem of an airport. Most amazing airport I have ever been to!"
Pros: "Got a free seat next to me."
Cons: "Plane delayed at one airport and again for 15 agonizing minutes at Dublin as an Aer Lingus ground crew forgot to turn on a parking indicator according to the pilot. Then nearly missed connecting flight made it by running. Nobody would allow someone to move faster through lines for a connecting fligh"
Pros: "Crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Announcement could be clearer. Sometimes gabled and indistinct."
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late taking off"
Pros: "I like there systems of getting people on and off -- it's efficient and easy. I like the price."
Cons: "We were jammed packed in; no water or beverages; and no entertainment ... an old aircraft."
Pros: "Very professional crew, super tight seats and not much room under seat, so very cramped for 8.5 hour flight"
Cons: "I was at the airport 4 hours early- no connections. They still managed to lose my bag. I don’t live near an airport. It added 2 hours to a long trip to wait for it, then wait with others to fill out papers when it didn’t show up."
Pros: "Quick organized boarding, friendly staff, much better flight than I expected. Food was even pretty good...Customs in Shannon was MUCH easier than Heathrow would have been, so thankfully, I went through customs in Shannon."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Made me check my carryon bag then it was opened - why - don’t know - and items missing along with my luggage strap. Will NEVER use Aer Lingus again"
Pros: "Everything really"
Cons: "That aerlingus doesn't offer a refreshment and a snack. All other national airlines do so.."
Pros: "You lost myluhgage. I have no clean clothes to ware"
Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"
Cons: "seats... no space menu.... skip it movie choice ... fair at best"
Pros: "I had a good flight. No complaints."
Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."
Cons: "very little leg room"
Pros: "Time of connection"
Cons: "Was a bit dirty between sits"
Cons: "First time I flew with Aer Lingus and can't say I will do it again. Didn't realize I was flying across continents in such a small plane. The flight attendants were barely civil; the bin above me housed supplies and on more than one occasion an attendant with visibly wet armpits leaned over me without nary an excuse me."
Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Cons: "My issue has more to do with after the flight, than the actual flight. My luggage was lost somehow between Heathrow and Shannon. The lack of communication I received from Aer Lingus, and the length of time it took for me to get the luggage was a bit ridiculous. I was never told what happened to the luggage and I was given the timeline to receive my luggage within 24 hours. Well it took over 48 hours to get the luggage. I was given specific timeframes to call the Shannon Airport Aer Lingus luggage desk, which I followed. Had to leave a message every time, and not once was it returned. The only communication I did get was calling the Shannon Airport directly and working with their employees. I could tell they were frustrated with me, which is completely understandable, because they weren't the appropriate people to communicate with. I was just very disappointed in the customer service."
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"
Pros: "Friendly efficient Staff. On time baggage both in Zurich and in Dublin almost literally as I got through passport controls. So I could not have asked for better."
Pros: "Constant attention to comfort"
Pros: "The cree's energy and friendliness ."
Cons: "I don't think there were movies to be watched on the individual screens."
Pros: "The effort made by the flight crew to find someone who was willing to switch their emergency exit seat with my cramped seat."
Cons: "Seating was really a disgrace. Being 6'3" made it unbearable. Seats are way too narrow and leg room non existent. Especially if the person in front of you reclined their seat."
Cons: "A/c was not working and is not the first time that happened on aerlingus....my question is do you do maintenance on aircraft??????"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Lingus lost my wife and my luggage along with 20-25 other passengers. It took two days to get out baggages back and cost me a bunch of money, time, headache & hassle."
Pros: "Flight attendant was delightful."
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
Pros: "Well fed"
Cons: "Plane not clean. Movie screen did not work."
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful"
Cons: "inability to get seats ahead of time - sat in rear of aircraft - cramped. I would have liked ability to pay for upgrading seats for more room. In-seat entertainment was glitchy much of the flight."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, and it was on time. There was no enternainment on board, but it's no problem for a short flight."
Cons: "Not enough room for our hand luggage, but the crew did not help us."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the seat was very narrow wasn't comfortable to seat the not like other planes that they normally better , and a lot of people was walking around and screaming the whole flight and the food was just a little I really didn't like the flight wite El Al"
Cons: "No TSA precheck Confusing check-in based on counter location and inexperienced agents."
Cons: "We froze the entire trip each way as we had the exit seats"
Pros: "the anticipation of a great flight back to the USA"
Cons: "The reality. The staff were not not at all friendly and chatty in the tradition of Aer Lingus. It felt like I was on an American Airlines flight :("
Pros: "The in-flight staff were also very helpful."
Cons: "The food was not tasty. Poor flavor. I had the Shepherds pie. And although I was grateful to have a meal offered, this one was a little off in flavor."
Pros: "Everyone is so nice!"
Pros: "The crew was incredible!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room.."
Cons: "The staff was more interested in selling things than providing service. Not friendly or helpful. Didn't' even offer hot drinks in the morning. Audio on the movies was poor."
Cons: "Stewardess were lovely food ok easy flight well donr"
Cons: "We asked to take an earlier flight to Louisville and were told that the Chicago crew would not have time to get our bags on board. When we arrived in Louisville, many hours later, our bags did not appear with everyone else's. It seems they had come on the earlier flight that we were not permitted to take. This was one of many issues with Aer Lingus during a trip we started planning last November. I will never fly through the Louisville KY (SDF) airport again nor will I ever use Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "Efficient, friendly service (no surly attendants)."
Cons: "Die Wartezeit in Londonit 5,5 Stunden war viel zu lang, das sollte auch kürzer möglich sein"
Pros: "We were early"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Seat didn’t recline..."
Pros: "Crew was amazing!!!"
Cons: "The onboard entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are not just uncomfortable, they are awful. Worse than Wizzair!"
Pros: "The seats were nice and roomy and there was a great entertainment system. The flight was on a American Airlines 777."
Cons: "Very Little"
Cons: "Hard to get over having to recheck our luggage"
Cons: "For a first class flight, I think they gotta change everything. Concorde lounge in london outdated, bad food, no snacks.. on board monitor was so low in resolution that watching was a pain and movies with subtitles impossible to watch. Compared to LH Air France or any Asien Avery bad"
Pros: "There is o option to say food not applicable hence 1 star the menu to buy looked ok but didnt use it seat was standard and fine"
Cons: "At Heathrow, the boarding agents kept calling few passengers without letting the rest of the passengers know what was going on. Also the boarding was delayed without giving specific reason almost 50 min later. Finallly they said the boarding was delayed to catering and cleanning, which I could not believe since the plane has been on a tarmac close to an hour. Passengers were lining up to board, but one of the gate agent kept asking to sit down without giving any reason. Probable one of the worst boarding experience I have ever had in international flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "We sat in Row 25, which did not have a seat in front of it, so we got lots of extra leg room. British Airways have incredibly friendly crew :) They feed you really good, better than any other airlines I've been on :)"
Pros: "Great seats, lots of room. The ground crew were great and helped with our baggage and the cabin crew was as good as they could be given the restrictions on their jobs."
Cons: "Had to pay for water or drink tepid tap water, we were not even given water or a cheap bag of pretzels, also the plane had not been cleaned forever, there was crusty food on the floor and trash. It was very strange for an international flight."
Pros: "Crew were awesome, plane was clean and entertainment and food were good."

Pros: "Excellent customer service thank you"
Pros: "No fuss, the cost benifit is perfect for short distances flights"
Cons: "One of the planes was a A321, room for legs was short"
Pros: "Every flight was late. And then we missed a connection not because we landed late, but because they didn’t have a bridge crew. So we sat on the ground for 45 minutes awaiting a bridge crew. Invitee were re-booked on a new connection, but low and behold that was also late."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew were helpful and friendly. Asian vegetarian meal was good. I had tomato rice, broccoli and eggplant as side dish. Toilets were clean."
Cons: "Breakfast was not great. I had asian vegetarian meal. I had uppuma, mini dosa and sambar and they were tasty. But I also had bread, sweet bread and a piece of sweet cake. Three kinds of bread is not necessary. Too much carbo. Please provide, vegetables like cucumber, tomato and carrot with breakfast. Also chick peas without spices and rava kesari can be served with breakfast."
Pros: "Customer service."

Cons: "We booked seats in row 30, and your seat plan showed more than 30 rows, i think it was 36, but we landed up at the back against the toilets would never have booked if aware there were only 30 rows, and to top it by the time sandwiches got to us only wraps lef, not happy at all"
Pros: "We arrive twenty minutes early."
Cons: "We lost a half hour because of defective equipment and had to exist the back of the plane on to the runway."

Pros: "Amazing! Great customer service from flight attendants and it was a smooth travel. Loved it!"
Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"
Pros: "The crew and assistants were excelent"
Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."
Pros: "Very pleasant and solicitous British cabin crew."
Cons: "Delayed departure."
Cons: "The fact that even water is for purchase is disgraceful"
Cons: "Having paid for a seat 3 months ago, I arrived at the airport to find that I was a standby passenger."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Offer more water throughout the flight"
Pros: "Check in, flight was on time"
Cons: "The time it takes for getting from 5 to 3. Almost missed my plane on the trip in."
Pros: "Very upscale aircraft, Polite staff and overall nice flight."
Pros: "Ear phones for those of us who did not bring any. Having a meal and drink available and at no extra cost."
Cons: "Not knowing if I could get an extra drink after the food was served, would have been helpful. Snacks of chips, pretzels would be tasty. Offering more water or a larger container offered would help. Explaining how u have to get to the next terminal would help. Having to go to many shuttles is confusing."
Pros: "For economy class it was good seats (bulkhead), the crew were nice, and the food was good."
Cons: "The tiny screens for movies were awful. Worst of all, the horribly loud voices that nearly break eardrums when the crew comes on during the flight was both painful and annoying."
Pros: "I liked that there was no one in the seat next to me. The seats were large enough. I am 5'9" so that is always important for me."
Cons: "The kid sitting behind me intermittently kicking my chair. I was awoken with 3hrs left to go with a hard kick. But kids what are you gonna do."
Pros: "my luggage was lost and it took 3 days to get it back I had no clothes , so I had no choice to buy new clothes"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "The tannoy was difficult to hear at the airport, guess that is not the fault of the airline but it made boarding difficult. Stewardess whizzed past when offering duty free shopping on board."
Pros: "Im 55 and slightly over weight getting a middle seat when the arm rests don't raise and seats so close together was a major issue getting in and out on such a long flight and I watched other women experiencing the same issue."
Cons: "Armrests to raise up 2 to 3 inches more between seat front to back. Especially if the persons in front of you have reclined there seats"
Pros: "On-time departure, comfortable cabin, good communication and attentive crew, that's all I want and I got it on this flight!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was missed because of a late arriving plane. No real concern from British Airways in my opinion. We should have made it home at 6:50pm and didn't arrive until 2am and without 3 out of 4 checked bags. And we are being told the bags weren't scanned. How is this possible? So not only are we exhausted from all the delays. Now we have to worry if our bags will turn up. I'm so disappointed in the unorganization of this whole ordeal."
