Crew was always friendly

They don't offer complimentary water on a 7 hour international flight. This should be illegal. The man who checked me in at Berlin airport was offensive and uncooperative. Baggage fees are so exorbitant that they essentially cancel out the fare savings, and then you still have to pay for everything. Every leg of every flight was delayed due to poor scheduling from the airline. Both times transferring through Iceland I had to sprint with my roller bag through the airport to make my connection to my next WOW flight. I fly 20-30 times a year and my travel day back to Chicago from Berlin was literally the worst flight experience I've ever had. I will never, EVER fly WOW again.

Great crew.

No free alcochol. Had to spend a night in Dublin just to connect! Over two hours late. And Aer Lingus really stunk flying the night before from Milano to Dublin. One person at their many counters for two hundred passenegers. Last time for Aer Lingus. On the other hand British Airways flew us from SF to Milano. We thought we were returning by British Airways. Screw job!

The crew was cheerful and the food was decent. It's a nice option for going from Europe to the US. Going through US customs in Dublin is much more convenient than waiting in line for 2+ hours in America after a 10+ hour flight.

Boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Everyone had already lined up before they even started boarding business class. The seats and the on-demand IFE are a bit dated.

I didn't make the flight because I was a few minutes late and they used the excuse of US preclearance to not let me try to go ahead and go through security despite being there well over an hour in advance.

The vegetarian meal was not available on either of my flights. I’d say they were a bit stingy handing out water as well. Space was good for the seating overall.

Cheap price but hefty baggage fee and uncomfortable plane. Accommodated me with a hotel room at the Hilton and a buffet voucher for 3 meals a day. This was very nice of them to do since my flight from Gatwick to Iceland and then to Baltimore, MD wad cancelled many times due to a snow storm in Iceland.

Uncomfortable plane. The plane was delayed for over a week so I cancelled my ticket and booked it through another airline. When speaking on the phone with WOW staff I could barely understand what they were saying because most staff I spoke with had very poor English.

We were not told we would have to land the air craft in Canada to refuel until we were taking off. This caused us to miss our connecting flight in Iceland and turned what should have been a 1 hour layover into a 24+ hour nightmare. Now, our return flight has been indefinitely delayed and we do not know when we can get home or how.

The staff was generally pleasant (except for one attend on the SFO-Dublin flight. The lunch and dinner were very good (desserts as well were better than on other airlines I have flown). There was a good selection of movies.

The seats on the trip Dublin to SFO were a bit cramped. I wasn’t able to lean my seat back as the passenger behind me asked me not to because his knees were already touching the back of my seat. The web check in was prone to error. For both legs I had to start the web Checkin at least twice. I also got an error page when I tried to print my boarding pass. I do’s not find a way to add my boarding pass to my iphone’s wallet.

Not much. I'm always grateful for safe travels.

Their cc machines couldn't process America credit and debit cards (I was one of 5 ppl in my row that had the same problem). When I paid w euros they didn't have change, said they would bring if before I landed and never did. This happened both to and from EU. Additionally the internet didn't work AT ALL and none of the attendants had a Clyde as to how to set it up. Finally, the attitude at large was dismissive, the idea of customer service is clearly not one Aer Lingus has embraced.

I originally booked a straight flight from KEF to SFO 2 months in advance and all of a sudden WOW sent me an email saying that they changed my flight to a different one with 6 hour lay-over in LAX due to overbooking. And the email notice was sent < 24 hours before the actual departure. So if I didn’t check in online, I would never find out before coming to the airport. When called to inquire more info and request to change to a different flight that would work better for my schedule than the one WOW automatically decided to switch me to, the representative was not very helpful and giving push back. I had to talk to a manager... Long story short, the flight itself, the seats, and attendant crew were all fine, but the booking/scheduling is a bit of uncertainty (like they can change flight on you whenever and to whatever they want).

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
