Cons: "Date: Mon, 11 Sep 2017 09:26:17 -0500 Subject: Re: How was your Aer Lingus flight to Chicago? The Aer Lingus flight was fine, but Vanama, the middle agency that youhave processed my tickets through- caused me a lot of stress. The daybefore my flight, I was trying to check in, and I received a message thatmy reservation was cancelled. I called Vanama, who rudely put me on morethan 30- minute hold on the phone, told me that Aer Lingus would not dealwith them, but the customer directly. I told him(Daniel of Vanama) that Ihave paid for my fare, that it was their responsibility, not mine to dealwith the airline. Never-the-less I tried calling the Airline, severaltimes, and listened to their own voice messages up to 2 in the morning ofthe day of my flight. Lacking sleep, and still not packed, I went to bed, went very early to the Madrid airport. I knew by the look on the AerLingus(Cristina) staff that there was a problem---she went ahead issued mea boarding pass, told me to go to the ticket counter in Dublin, and ask forhelp. After going from one floor to another, and another, to twodifferent staff-the problem sorter at Aer Lingus told me, Vanama never issued the ticket. That they should not have let me board the plane in Madrid, but he said he took care of the mess. Now you want to know how my flight went."
Pros: "The staff were so, so helpful and made sure we were all as comfortable as possible. I liked all the snacks and drinks and the no charge for checked bags. (A big help after a long trip and short on $!) And the best part? They dealt with U.S customs before we left Dublin so that we didn't have to deal with the long lines in Boston. So grateful!!!"
Cons: "My entertainment screen froze every time I tried to play a game, had to reset a few times before I gave up."
Pros: "The crew tried to accommodate and offered food to everyone."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Delay at Dublin waiting for plane to get parked"
Pros: "Nice stewards."
Cons: "Terrible bag handling and passenger experience management wrote to airline 3 times and no response. Was without luggage for a week with no offer of assistance."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The plane was dirty and old, the food horrible, cramped seats, dirty and non functioning bathrooms, stressed out and inattentive staff, poor coordination of seating families together (I was told my seat was given to a woman so she could sit with her adult daughter...I wasn't asked, just told), the flight was 1.5 hour delayed, my bag was lost because the incompetent staff member in Italy didn't give me a bording pass for the Dublin to LA flight (I'm still waiting over 24 hours later to find out what's happened to my luggage). Overall, this flight was a nightmare and a huge let down after flying to Rome on British Airways. I can't say enough about how wonderful that flight was..Aer Lingus was a big disappointment and a poor substitute for BA. Very unsatisfied customer!"
Pros: "Food excellent, plane staff pleasant. Plane was late."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. The young man at the,AL desk at Frankfort was tude,and dismissive. It is more than 24 hours later now and they have made no contact."
Cons: "Security. Large distances to walk. Poor signage. Poor processes re onboarding. Booked Aer Lingus. Was actually a shitty Stobard plane."
Cons: "There's no aer lingus desk at marseille airport. I arrives a few minutes late and nobody could help me. I missed my flight. Ryanair staff have me aer lingus's phone number to rebook for the day after, and of course on the phone she told me that I had to do it online."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "No entertainment and no snack I don't believe"
Cons: "Shopping was not avail on the plane"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional. The food was very good and plentiful. The entertainment options were very good. I have absolutely no complaints."
Cons: "Delay after delay for hours and hours, and not even complimentary wine and beer like other airlines. Finally we're provided with a meal voucher after every restaurant in the terminal had already closed"
Pros: "I love your airline. First trip with you this week. Clean spacious planes. Friendly and caring staff... noticed great things watching crew help others. Great entertainment options and quality. Food was tasty! Looking forward to my next trip with you."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."
Cons: "I was recently on a 5 week tour of South America where I took 13 flights. They had a boarding system whereby you boarded by numbers with the highest numbers boarding first and they had 3 designated small queues 1-15 16- 30 30 -46 and this worked extremely well"
Cons: "I requested an aisle or window seat and was not able to get one."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delayed by 30 min"
Pros: "staff on board aircraft were all very friendly"
Cons: "More check in staff. electronic check in quiosk. more organized way for check in bags. DON'T LOOSE LUGGAGE! Shorter wait times."
Cons: "Our clothes and baggage wet with beer. Three days of holiday ruined trying to get clean clothes and unsucessfully to remove smell from luggage."
Pros: "The basics for the seating and in flight were fine overall. The airlines and crew were helpful getting our family together, although we had booked separately."
Cons: "The entertainment system never worked at all. When we arrived in Dublin, the car seat for our 1-year-old never arrived. Repeated calls to ask about it resulted in one voice mail and no call backs. I had to rent a car and drive to the airport an hour distant before getting anyone to respond. It cost us (1) car rental, (2) lost day of sightseeing, (3) price of a new car seat, and (4) price of a replacement car seat when we returned home as the one we could find on the trip is not legal in the US."
Cons: "The crew and airport failed to help us through the customs process and we nearly missed our connection."
Cons: "The entertainment service in my seat was not working. I had to ask two different flight attendant in 3 times occasions for help. Finally, one of them told that she could only do something after finishing serving food to the plane (worth mentioning that at this time, she hadn't start serving food). After 3,5 hours (on a 6,5 hour flight) she said that her colleague would re-start the system. After 30 more minutes, and after I went to asked what happened, she said that the system was not functioning and that there was nothing else she could do other than giving me some refreshments."
Pros: "blankets were about as thick as toilet paper. Seats were really cramped, and difficult to sleep in. pillows felt like sandpaper, breakfast was unimpressive. Asked for an extra blanket and was told no, even though I saw many when I was leaving the plane. Young daughter was shivering while trying to sleep. Really bad experience."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No bad experiences"
Pros: "food was better than expected and not too pricy"
Cons: "no delay!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight was comfortable however the boarding process was a bit disorganized but I’m pretty sure that was an airport issue"

Cons: "Why is it always my flight that's delayed????"
Cons: "Flight could’ve arrived on time."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "What I love the most is the cabin crew through speaker was very funny, breaking the ice by making jokes. I have never experience that before and it's the best start to a flight if you are a bit concerned about flying. Was very easy and organised to board and the crew were very nice,"
Cons: "Nothing at this point"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice There are always delays"
Pros: "On time and nice staff"
Cons: "No vegan options on menu other than crisps......."
Pros: "Preferential boarding was useful as the flight was full and cabin baggage space was tight."
Cons: "People shouldn't be allowed to carry two bags of the same size and dimensions onto the plane, space is too tight for that, they should be made to put all their bags into the hold."
Pros: "Crew were excellent and the flight was without faults"
Pros: "Punctuallity & cabin crews"
Pros: "What a landing from the pilot. Straight from the aviation textbook."
Cons: "12 min delay."
Pros: "It was average"
Cons: "The hour delay"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. They were very apologetic - customer service was great."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Boarding delayedchaotic"
Pros: "Everything went to schedule and the crew dealt with an illness emergency without fuss and I am sure more than half the passengers never knew about it."
Pros: "Overall Easyjet is an ok airline, I will continue to fly with them, however, small things like paying extra for speedy boarding and then not having a separate line is a real disappointment. Given the option I would pay a the extra to fly with a better airline, however, being from Northern Ireland we are limited to what we can have."
Cons: "Flight left late. Hand luggage bag had to be checked in. I had to go straight to work after I Ianded so didn’t appreciate the extra 20 minutes wait at the luggage carousel. I was told the overhead lockers were full, which they weren’t."
Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "had to wait nearly an hour from departure lounge then on the plane before takeoff. Felt we were being herded like cattle and then left to stew in a holding room before allowed access to plane."
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 2 hours (19.05 flight)... Even the 20.30 flight left before us! Zero communication from ground staff, no food vouchers. Extremely poor!"
Pros: "No food or entertainment."
Pros: "Kept well informed about ghastly delay"
Cons: "3 hours 11 mins late arrival at destination"
Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised with how comfortable the flight was and the efficiency."
Pros: "Staff were good. EasyJet kept us informed. There is a high degree of efficiency and you are treated as a paying passenger rather than cattle."
Cons: "Delays seem inevitable with EasyJet on the Belfast route. I can't remember the last time we had one that wasn't delayed by more than half an hour. The scheduled time is longer than any flight has taken, but I think this is actually a realistic approach given the probability of a delay. There is an issue with 2-3 year olds and seat belts - they are not allowed to travel on a parent's lap, but they can wriggle out a lap belt easily and so are unsecured."
Pros: "Exactly as the title says. Really quick."
Pros: "Flight left Edinburgh on time and arrived on time that’s something that doesn’t happen to often and the crew were really friendly"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The flight itself was quite quick and the staff on board were very nice"
Cons: "We boarded really early but the plane hadn’t arrived and we were made to wait in a corridor, we boarded at about 9:30 when we were supposed to depart at 8:55, we departed almosted an hour later than expected (9:45) which made a huge difference and unfortuntely we missed the train from luton and the last tube in London."
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Using buses rather than gates to to enter the airport. Is it some kind of saving money with out considering passengers comfort"
Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"
Pros: "Crew ok."
Cons: "Automated baggage drop off No one to help with bags. Very late. Sat on plane for ages before lift off. Slow to get a drink. Hardly time to drink it. Very uncomfortable and annotingz experience."
Cons: "Flight late again, plane filthy. Not good enough."
Cons: "Long wait time for luggage to appear on carousel"

Cons: "The chairs dose not move. So it's not very comfortable to sit on"
Pros: "Airport facilities in Edinburgh. No waiting time at security. Water fountaine after security."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by nearly 1 hr. No information of it until 15 min before the scheduled take off time, inspite of me signing up to text alerts at the flight booking. Boarding via bus and just 1 staircase. Passengers with children under 5 years announced to board first, but no chance as no way through unorganised crowd of passengers waiting."
Cons: "very long delay with no real reason given"
Pros: "Flight was low price and the cabin uncrowded."
Cons: "Boarding the flight in Edinburgh was delayed by forty minutes. Delays at Gatwick waiting for coaches to arrive before we could disembark and get to the terminal."
Pros: "Flight to Luton was great and even though we arrived at the gate when boarding had commenced, staff were still helpful and gave us priority boarding. Return journey was an hour which was really cool but alas..."
Cons: "...all the time savings I thought we'd made quickly evaporated after landing - we couldn't disembark until over 15mins after landing and another 45mins to reclaim baggage. With two children aged 3years and 6 months, the experience wasn't really great at all. Only reason why I'm not giving less than 3 stars are for the positives mentioned above."
Pros: "I liked the price of the flight compared to other airlines, I likEd the colour of the airline and how clean it was. I liked the fact that the flight was uneventful and completed. I liked it that we did not get delayed and I liked the professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I didn't like it that you did not carry pillows. I didn't like the food trolly, would much prefer a set meal."
Pros: "I wasn't allowed to fly as the Scottish government said non essential travel wasn't allowed and I wasn't allowed the opportunity to get a voucher for my flight"
Cons: "Seeing as I wasn't allowed to fly l could have been offered a voucher or someone at Ryanair help could have answered my question about my flight"
Cons: "Cambiaron la puerta de salida al otro lado del aeropuerto e "iniciaron" el abordaje tan rápido, que los pasajeros no habíamos llegado, luego nos hicieron esperar una hora de pie en la fila, un completo desorden y falta de organización"
Pros: "Great flight at a great price."
Cons: "Land softer"
Pros: "Fast boarding"

Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Late boarding and twenty minutes late taking off then no staff to meet the plane when it landed in Stansted for 40 minutes so I missed the train I was booked on which cost me more than the return flight to renew my train ticket"
Cons: "Having to now pay and queue for cabin baggage is treating customers like dirt. Flight was one hour late to Dublin so missed my connection. Best not flying with this crowd in future."
Cons: "They don’t accept credit cards from USA."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight had group of youngsters who should not have been allowed on flight. They displayed rowdy behaviour and swore and gestures throughout flight. Staff did very little to try and stop them until other passengers started to complain."
Pros: "Inconvenient all, no aplogise of delayed Flight as like the turtle!"
Cons: "To prepare on time!! Plz Eeven though I’ve booked more planty of time for next plan, it was late because of too much delayed"
Cons: "RYanair always delayed (1h30 delay inbound, 2h delay outbound), that company is a disgrace"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Service was not great. The baggage allowance was lower than other airlines, forcing us to repack before we checked our bags. Checking in online was mandatory-something that wasn’t very noticeable in the email when we had a million other trip details to attend to so we didn’t and ended up having to pay a fee to check in. Ridiculous. My wife and I were not seated together even though I booked both tickets together. The inexpensive upfront price of the flight is not worth it since they will trick you into paying in other ways."
Cons: "Was told at boarding gate for a visa check stamp requirement. Admittedly it was mentioned in a casual way in the boarding pass,but wasn't a border control requirement. The airline could have done it there. But was denied boarding, waited for 6 hours to catch next flight and further connections."
Cons: "1 hour flight delay 1 hour delay disembarking due to non-availability of ground staff Another appalling travel experience with Ryanair - they should not be allowed to operate an airline"
Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "We were late. Left standing for boarding out in the cold. The entire flight is spent with crew trying to sell you one thing or another. There is no break for peace. Buy these tickets buy these duty free items etc etc...seats are awful too!"
Cons: "Having to pay to use the toilet on board"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and very clean. You could tell it was a newer aircraft. The crew was very polite."
Cons: "Charging a fee to check-in at the airport is ridiculous. Not every traveller has access to a computer/printer when they travel so that can be big hassel for customers. We didn't have to deal with this, but it could stress out other customers."
Cons: "Tiny seats, baggage policy is garbage"
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"
Pros: "She was the most miserable and unfriendly person I have ever met! Why has she chosen a customer facing role?????"
Cons: "Air stewards, all very chatty amongst themselves but no time for their customers!!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane at the other end, eventually."
Cons: "The massive delay, the move of gates to the other end of the airport only to get onto a bus and then wait 15-20 minutes to get off the bus and onto the plane. Even an offer of free coffee on board would've been nice but nope, just a few apologies over the PA."
Pros: "Crew jokes eased the tension after the flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayes"
Pros: "If you pay for priority boarding you do expect to get first on the airplane But you go with everyone on the bus and since you got first you are among the last to board ...what the point to pay than?"
Pros: "The availability to go from Ireland and Scotland was very nice. The cost was cheap with an additional fee for everything else. I did purchase an extra bag at 20kg before. I also paid 5 GBP for priority seating. Your ticket is your phone or a print out. There is no entertainment, possibly with the exception of conversation. You could purchase limited food items."
Cons: "The plane numbers did not seem to correspond to the download. I had to check the screen by town and I was vaguely concerned I might have made a mistake. The gates changed twice. Or, they announced the wrong gate change the first time."
Pros: "Good price, adequate seats, space for our carry-on bags. No surprises!"
Cons: "Boarding involved a long wait standing in the tarmac in the sun."
Pros: "nice crew, they tried their best"
Cons: "the plane was packed with drunk af stag groups screaming shouting abd drinking non stop from takeoff to touchdown"
Pros: "Nothing! Crew was decent, but not great."
Cons: "Basically everything. Long wait in unannounced. unstructured line (s). Miserable seat."
Cons: "Rude representatives and terrible organization."
Cons: "30 minutes late, not enough room for everyone's baggage, small seat next to large guy"
Pros: "Arrived on time after leaving late"
Cons: "I was too tall to be sitting beside two very big people"
Pros: "Flight and crew and service were good once we got to the gate and on the plane."
Cons: "We were required to have a printed boarding pass, and since we were traveling it was difficult to get prior to getting to the airport. Once we got to the airport, we were bandied about from one desk to another, then told we would have to go spend money at a computer/printer station, or else pay 15 pounds."
Cons: "Printing my boarding pass at home to make sure I didn't have to pay a 50 euro fee. It's hard enough to do it right before you leave, but we couldn't print anything for the flight back to Brussels."
Pros: "The plane made it to Las Palmas"
Cons: "8 drunk women shouted and disrupted other's quiet"
Cons: "7 hour delay"
Cons: "Ryan air is the worst airline I have ever encounter. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THEM."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call--corralled into a small hot space, standing because there was no seating and waiting for over 1/2 hour to board. Seats were cramped. There was no food--unless you are accustomed to paying over $10 for an unhealthy snack. To call the safety card affixed to the back of the seat in front of me "entertainment" is a joke. You will not need to worry about my ever flying your airline again."
Cons: "The have good plans flying at reasonable rate and good schedules. If the seat is a bit stiff and the hard surfaces reflect noise...I take that into account when iBook the flight.."
Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"
Pros: "Initial price was good but a bait and switch if not a carry-on commuter."
Cons: "Check online was difficult to understand and took several attempts to complete. Expensive airport checking option was 45 Pounds. Birthday year started at 2000 and had to be scrolled back a couple of months at a time. Misunderstood adding luggage and had to pay 35 Pounds at a/p for 1 passengers bag. Hated the experience!"
Cons: "For the price was fair"
Pros: "Price was cheap, that's it!"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, without any explanation. We had to pay for water!"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable Confusing check in with no help or assistance. Employees answer questions like you should already know the answer. Standing outside waiting to board"
Pros: "They did not crash the plane"
Cons: "nickel & dimed entire process. Crew hates their lives so they yell at passengers. They would not allow you to lower your window shade at any point during the flight and would verbally assault you if you did."
Cons: "We followed all carryon size and weight guidelines and passenger carried on bags much larger and heavier than ours. Why did we bother?"
