Pros: "Quick boarding and departed on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Air Lingus is like Ryan Air with an Irish accent. No space, terrible food, very low quality entertainment system with the sound muffled and barely audible."
Cons: "Many people missed their connection at Dublin. I had a horrible ~6hr wait. Aer Lingus did nothing to help or compensate."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "We arrived late to Dublin because of weather and we’re going to miss our connection to Leeds so they rerouted us via Manchester but our bags, though tagged “Rush” did not make it on the new flight and we were without them for five days! we still had to get to Leeds so we had to pay for train tickets"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "When I checked in, I was asked if I would consider taking a United flt instead of aerlingus. I agreed but the flight had already filled up so the woman checking me in offered to seat me at an exit row. However on check in I realized she gave me someone else’s ticket. It was disappointing. My first f"

Cons: "The check-in at Washington Dulles was understaffed. Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Polite and friendly."

Pros: "The flight attendants on Aer Lingus have to be the kindest people ever!"

Pros: "on board staff very friendly and helpful on ground staff in Dublin airport"
Cons: "on ground staff for AER LINGUS at Miami airport- unable to communicate proper in English, does not know own luggage policy Aer Lingus rep ( when making our reservation 4 moths ago) mislead us that we were able to get a bassinet for our 11 month old lap infant on transcontinental flights- never happened."
Cons: "This was not a British Airways flight. They should have done a better job of communicating that. I wasn't informed until I tried to check in online 24 hours before my flight."
Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."
Cons: "Delayed, they even charge for water, no entertainment"
Cons: "I had a 5 hour delay. I had to cancel the trip"
Pros: "Plane, crew"
Cons: "Boarding agent took too long to load the plane which caused a delay which ultimately had us miss our connecting flight Didn't like that Aer Lingus didn't wait for us at Dublin when they knew we were going to be a few minutes late"
Pros: "Almost everything was good. Friendly crew, easy boarding, safe flight even with lots of air gusts (thanks to the pilots!)."
Cons: "Whatever fare Kayak provided was the worst seat (last row next to bathrooms). I wouldn't book through Kayak again and instead would go through the airline directly."
Pros: "Blankets and earphones provided."
Cons: "Couldn’t checkin at British Airways; there needs to be better signage at desk. Flight was delayed and we almost missed connection. Seat would not tilt back."
Pros: "1. Friendly staff 2. Good food on the plane"
Cons: "The cost of luggage - unfreaking real to have to pay for first suit case when flying overseas and they at a cost of $100 per item!!! Definitely not recommending this airline to my friends unless they are only taking carry-on luggage. The cabin room was more cramped then usual also but it was ok."
Pros: "Food was delicious. Plenty of space to stow carry on baggage. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "The crew were very professional and courteous"
Cons: "No USB ports and no way to plug in one's personal earbuds. Sounds quality on the airline supplied earbuds was horrible. Gave up on the entertainment offerings and watched movies I had stored on my iPad. And really the worst food I've ever had on a flight."
Pros: "Same as above: great staff and service"
Cons: "Horrible online service and the surprise of being on a different airline than my travel documents had stated."
Cons: "Being charged $100 each way for checked baggage, no where on my itenerary did it mention that"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable plane that I have travelled on. Seat - unbearably uncomfortable. Toilet falling apart, parts of seats falling off."
Pros: "Boarding made sense. They boarded the back of the plane first. Kudos for that."
Cons: "The seat cushions were nonexistent. Less legroom than a mini backseat and no way to upgrade since I purchased on kayak...unless I was willing to pay $4000 more to get premium coach seats. Will not use kayak again."
Pros: "Seats and service was excellent. Flight was on time and very organized."
Cons: "BA used to feel like luxury travel. Now they just feel like any run-of-the-mill budget airline. Felt nickeled & dimed from start to finish. Staring with being asked to pay $39 if I wanted to preselect my seat. My friend and I chose the free option of selecting our seats 24 hours before the flight--her luggage didnt even make in on the plane! It was finally delivered at 2:00 AM the next morning; well past the 8:00 PM promised delivery, which caused us to lose an entire eveing in Paris. On the return flight, home, she was told there wasn't even a seat for her on the plane. I failed to add that after booking and paying for her flight, they cancelled and deleted the SFO to London leg of the flight without so much as notifying her via email, phone, or text. Mind you, the London to Paris leg was not cancelled. Had we not tried to pre-book our seats, she would never have known they had cancelled her flight. What impacted her, impacted me, so needless to say, neither of us will ever fly BA again! BTW, their online customer service representatives were very nasty to deal with."
Cons: "I bought a BA flight because I am oneworld premium member. However, I learnt the flight was operated by Aer Lingus after I bought the ticket and I had no benefits."
Pros: "Goo entertainment on Dulles Dublin sector."
Cons: "It would help if ba would hilight fact that this is a code share with are linguistic. Seat were unbelievably small and had to walk to ends of earth for both the gate in Dulles and Dublin. No free food or drink on Dublin madrid sector but thankfully not full so I could stretch out. New planes on both sectors."
Pros: "Pilot told us the flight plan"
Pros: "Flight made great time! Boeing 757 was disappointing as it felt extremely crowded."
Cons: "Flight attendants were not very friendly or helpful (except the one in first class that help us out when needed). Never was asked for additional beverage and no extra with dinner."
Pros: "check in was efficient."
Cons: "purchase of beverages; lack of understanding food schedule"
Pros: "Staff was very cheery and thoughtful! Made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "No boarding gate was ever given to us, nor available by looking up online. Caused us to almost miss our flight. Very frustrating to be running around and even the information desk couldn't locate our boarding gate! Aircraft also old and worn down."
Pros: "Crew on board were very nice and very helpful.Apart from that I am struggling to see how this is a 4 star airline. It's a joke"
Cons: "AerLingus use a Boeing757 on this route and the seats are old, uncomfortable and many have dips in them.The entertainment system is ancient and had limited stuff on it. The food was as bad as airplane food gets. The 'beef' Shepard pie was lumpy and over salted. Also you must pay for beer and wine on this 4 star airline. They use "smart flies aer Lingus " as their advert tag line. In my opinion smart flies someone else"
Cons: "Flight did not include a snack: even a tea cost $3."
Cons: "Ability to choose seats ahead of time was not streamlined."
Pros: "The in-flight experience and service."
Cons: "The fact that my luggage did not initially transfer from the first leg of my trip to the second leg of my trip. I received my luggage by the end of the day, but it was somewhat inconvenient to not have a lot of my personal effects for several hours."
Pros: "okay, nothing special"
Cons: "Munich airport had poor signage to find airline to check bags and get boarding passes as we did not have access to print them prior to the flight. Aer Lingus attendant was annoyed that we did not have printed boarding passes and would only give us the one for the first leg with incorrect instructions for getting the second leg boarding pass in Dublin. With the delay finding the counter we almost missed getting through passport control and needed the airport staffer to get us ahead in the line to make the flight. A tense start......."
Pros: "Great crew food was good timely and professional."
Cons: "Need headphone adaptors. Airline headphones terrible."
Pros: "Everything except the amt of room"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to preorder better meals. Good selection of in-air movies. Sitting anywhere for almost 7 hours is no fun but it could have been much worse."
Cons: "Small seats. My tray table wouldn't stay up."
Cons: "Added 12 hours to my trip and had to rebook on another airline for the second leg. The crew was unapologetic after sitting on the tarmac for three hours. Terrible airline"
Cons: "You can't get a seat assignment until you check in at the airport. I ended up in the very back row, right in front of the galley for a 7 hour flight. No sleep for me."
Cons: "You lost my luggage with my dead mother's paintings."
Pros: "Both British airline and Aer Lingus service was 5star. and kayak did its job they made reservation super easy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 mins"
Cons: "Seat 31A: Headphone socket was not working properly, table was broken (didnt keep the food tablet), entertainment system crashed after pausing the movie. check-in baggage was lost during journey and still couldnt get found. Very annoying."
Cons: "Toilets are not good"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "The ear plugs connection to the screen was not working 100%. Overall good flight, better than any of the American carriers,"
Cons: "Wheel chair assistance at Heathrow was very very slow it took 2 hours to change gates in Terminal 5"
Cons: "The TV was not working"
Pros: "Getting water offered frequently"
Cons: "Took about a month to book an infant ticket, then was issued a ticket with a wrong name, which then took another 3 weeks to be amended. When checking in, the agent told me that my daughter's ticket was not linked to anyone and looked like she was flying solo even though I mentioned to 5 different customer service agents that I would like to add her to my itinerary. Just when I thought it couldn't be worse, captain announced that they were having trouble with the AC for my part of the plane, meaning 7 hour flight was hotter than 80 degrees. I should also mention that trash was not collected until breakfast service."
Pros: "Crew member was especially gentle, kind and resourceful. She gave toys to small upset child sitting across the isle from us. Child became calm."
Cons: "Timing of the meals. Would rather have slept after take off and had a substantial breakfast before landing."
Pros: "Polite crew."
Cons: "No power outlets. TV video was shaky. The audio jack did not work. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Received a lower than expected upgrade fare for Club World. The new Club World amenities are a big improvement over the older option."
Cons: "BA still needs to improve its Club World seat and update it. It is significantly behind the competition. The seat lacks meaningful storage options and if you don't have a window seat, there is absolutely no privacy."
Pros: "Free movies Comfy seats Good food Attentative and friendly staff As a USA citizen - I would love to put us up as the pennacle, but British Airways puts United and American Airlines to shame."
Cons: "Love BA but very stand-offish and rude crew!"
Pros: "- Boarded and left on time (both flights) - Crew was excellent - Free wine with dinner even in economy! - 787 is super comfortable and enjoyed the entertainment selection as well"
Cons: "Planes should just be boarded back to front. Also, it seems that boarding just isn't announced at the gate tomorrow."
Pros: "General sense of management and professionalism, punctuality."
Cons: "Lack of attention to detail and general frugality"
Pros: "The stewardesses were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The actual food etc offered on board is horrible.BA does not know where to cut more in their services. They offer you a drink once the whole flight! Washington to London. Supper was half burned lasagna; you’d think they cannot go lower than that. Wait for your breakfast: a cereal bar. Very classy! We had tail wind so we made good time on the flight only to have to circle London around for 30 minuets. This would not have been a problem, however there was such turbulence that you could hear people throwing up! Great end to a transatlantic flight! I barely made it through it myself."
Pros: "One of the most comfortable cabin interiors I've been in for 747s"
Cons: "Flight boarding was delayed fairly significantly, the second time this has happened to me out of two flights. Certain "hand luggages" were allowed onto the plane despite then failing to fit in overhead compartments and slowing down the whole procedure. Food was bad."
Cons: "Economy seating not so comfortable"
Cons: "I had a problem with seating due to a medical condition and I wasn't relocated"
Pros: "The crew snd boarding"
Cons: "There were engine problems and the flight was delay by 2:20 and lost my train connection"
Cons: "Your partner Webjet is a horrible company lacking customer service of any kind. And since i was linked to them from your website I will be cutting my ties to kyak as well."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Breakfast was ridiculous, just a small chocolate bar!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours before takeoff. Then I missed my connection flight at LHR. Consequently I had to wait for 4 hours to catch filling flight form LHR to NCL. BA very poor service."
Pros: "Seat fine"
Cons: "Bad that no entertainment system availavlace until after takeoff and way too early before landing. Too many announcements woke me up. Very sleep"
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Cons: "cold bread"
Cons: "In our party of 3, one bag was lost -- apparently stolen at Rome airport. Nobody there from Aerolingus to go to! No complimentary food or even water from Dublin to Rome. Lousy food and expensive drinks elsewhere. Airplane from Dulles to Dublin ws old, unkept, antiquated. Serbve on airplanes was bad to nonexistent. NO coffee in the am after an overnight flight!!???"
Pros: "The flight was bad I lost my luggage"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was top-notch. Plenty of choices, good quality and the touch screen responded well to touch. Boarding was quick, efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "Cabin crew servie was somewhat lacking during the flight. We got our drink before dinner and the drink cart did not come back again when dinner was served so we had to have dinner without a drink (other than the small cup of water that comes with the tray). Breakfast now has been relegated to a breakfast bar - really?!?!"
Pros: "Many entertainment options, food was tasty."
Cons: "Movie options were not new releases"
Pros: "The people were nice."
Pros: "Flight and connections in perfect time."
Pros: "Selection of movies"
Cons: "Time of flight"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The temperature was extremely warm and the food was terrible."
Cons: "Having paid for a seat 3 months ago, I arrived at the airport to find that I was a standby passenger."
Cons: "Very cramped seats; terrible food; was put on Air Lingus instead of BA; missed our connection and Air Lingus was very difficult to work with"
Cons: "Breakfast was pathetic"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The arrival, planning and hosting at Heathrow was probably worst I have experienced in 30 years. We had a tight connection, no attempt was made by anyone to prioritize those with less than 45 minute connections. We had one immigration officer for 2 lanes including the fast lane, what is the point of it. After immigration the automatic system did not let us in the boarding area. We were redirected by staff to leave the secure area without any clear explanation of what to do next. When we arrive in the ticketing area, we, several of us, went to try to go through security. That is when we were told we missed the connection. Then we were told to go to B1, after waiting in line we were told to go to zone E for reticketing. At which point I went in standby, only passenger from the group following to Edinburgh, did not make the 2nd flight either. Waited 6 hours at Heathrow..,"
Pros: "The flight,from take off to landing & crew was very good."
Cons: "The food served from Washington to London was very good. However,food served from London-Lagos though good but i was surprised that when the cabin crew who served our compartment told me that my choice of lunch was no more available in the plane to served me. Simply, they ran out of chicken and rice when it got to my turn. I had to demand to speak with the manager who came to speak with me & had to go to business class wing to get me a meal to eat. The manager was very understanding & nice.She took good care of me & fulfilled my desire.She made me happy. In conclusion,every flight should always have more than enough food to go round every parssenger in every flight in the future."
Pros: "Seats were good, movie selection good. Everyone very nice."
Cons: "No breakfast!! Just grapes or banana and granola bar??"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly staff, blankets provided!!!"
Pros: "Great staff making the best of the economy class conditions"
Cons: "I guess it's nice that seats recline and give a few extra inches, but the rows are way too close, so when seats are reclined, nobody's getting out, nobody's getting up to stretch, and nobody's using the tray table."
Cons: "The aircraft was downgraded from an A380 to a 777, flight was overbooked, food was not good."
Pros: "The flights were fine - food was basic but fine. No leg room but that's typical of all flights these days."
Cons: "Flights were fine but connection time in London AWEFUL! They gave us just one hour to connect and you absolutely can not get from one terminal to the other - a long distance apart even by bus - and then go through security yet again, in just one hour. Then, as everyone is in the same boat, you wait in line for a couple of hours to be re-booked. Terrible! It all turned into a fiasco - 11 hours of travel, turning into 24. Awful. We will NEVER USE HETHROW AIRPORT AS A CONNECTING POINT AGAIN - EVER!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The in flight staff was great!"
Cons: "There were some rude agents we dealt with in London that made some remarks about Americans. Very unprofessional."
Cons: "They don't tell you upon booking that if you want to sit with your party you need to pay an extra $60 per seat. We were on a double decker and my little sister was on a different level from me. They wouldn't let me down to go see her after we were delayed for a couple hours. Ran out of food choices by the time they got to us. Because it was so large, boarding and unboarding took FOREVER. Finally, it was HOT. Uncomfortably so, both levels were extremely warm and there are no personal vents that you can open above your head. I would not fly this again."
Pros: "the seats,leg space"
Cons: "crew should be more involved"
Cons: "Felt cramped in the seats."
