Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"

Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"

Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "Seat cramped for business"
Cons: "Had to check prophylacticly my roller bag, even though flight wasn't full—"
Pros: "The 'ease' of travelling with B. A., the efficiency of the staff and the comfortable seats in the plane all added to an enjoyable trip."
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"
Cons: "Delay of a half hour."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot took off and landed very well and I got completely drink and food. I will fly again. Thanks"
Cons: "It’s a bit cheeky because I know all airlines do it. But to bring a case included in the price and less hand luggage would be great. Having said that the hand luggage is very generous and I managed a full week in Ibiza with hand luggage. Thanks"
Pros: "Offer of small meal."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour. Asked to check in bag as full flight"
Pros: "The stewards were very nice and professional!"

Pros: "Nice, remember usb charger cord & earbuds."
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "choice of snacks, unfriendly staff"
Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"
Pros: "The crew is always incredible"
Cons: "When you buy business you expect the quick boarding etc. Boarding group 1 and 2 together created a mess"
Pros: "Easy check in online , E tickets - only took hand luggage so no long queues ! Flew both ways with BA - food was very good and drinks included so happy travellers"

Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats comfy for the 2hr flight"
Cons: "Having to board the plane in the pouring rain by running across the tarmac."
Cons: "Called me a no show even though I was there."
Pros: "Not much - actually nothing"
Cons: "Seats were way too small, no legroom, entertainment options were sub-minimal and the staff was rude. Told one person to turn off their electronics while another watched a movie on his iPad during take off and landing"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, staff was delightful, flight was early arrival, everything was super."
Cons: "We arrived with 3 hours before our flight, as recommend for International travel. But we were not allowed to check our bags until 9:50 AM. We waited on line for almost 2 hours! If we had been told of this restriction we could have gone to a lounge to relax. Instead we waited a long time on foot."
Pros: "What a superb service! Impeccable staff, free meal and alcoholic drink, larger seats, excellent flight! Couldn't ask for more"
Pros: "Better than Ryanair/easyjet but then again. That’s nothing to write home about"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours. The plane was old dirty and stinky. I paid last minute for my flight so it was a lot more than usual so I feel ripped off because of the poor quality"
Cons: "I missed the flight not because of me, but the confusion information that a staff gave it to me."
Cons: "BA has a problem with one of the doors. Chaos."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."
Cons: "Flight was fine LCY Worked very well. You are BA I DO NOT WANT TO BE NICKLE AND DIMED TO TAKE LUGGAGE. Yare not Ryan Air. If there is a charge make it clear when I buy the ticket. I do not expect to have to tell BA to grow up."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"
Cons: "Massive delay due to snow, no vouchers given until flight was cancelled (and it was all closed). Only updates were via BA app or email. Next day flight also delayed, and again delays communicated only via app or email (not at signs at airport)"
Pros: "The Service, with smile, awesome service. Very British!"
Cons: "THE BACK FIRST TOOK MY MONEY, THEN MY FULL PASSPORT DETAILS AND THEN DENIED ME FLYING BECAUSE THEY PUT MY SURNAME TWICE ON THE BOARDING PASS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WIN. I AM OUT OF POCKET FOR £170 AND DELAYED BY 2.5 HOURS. THIS IS THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY - BY CHEATING ON PASSENGERS."
Pros: "How do you be a full service airline and charge for check in bag. I had no way provided to prepay for a bag resulting in getting charged £60 at the airport. This notwithstanding trying to explain how your website failed me."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian entre and also ran out of snacks, so I was very hungry and had no options."
Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."
Pros: "Ease of checking in and getting to departure gate at London City Airport."
Cons: "No food or drink on flight for normal travellers."
Cons: "Bad service, messed up booking, change me to the last row at boarding, I can keep going"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"
Pros: "I understand and appreciate not being able to land in Florence due to conditions and safety, and they were able to give us the closest Pisa airport."
Cons: "They kind of left us stranded in PiSA. Promised bus that didnt happen. We had to pay out of pocket 12euros each to Florence bus station, then pay another 6euros from bus station to florence airport. PAIN! Did not get to our AirBNB at tuscany until 21:30 instead of 14:00! Would be niced to get reim for all 8 members in our party!"
Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."
Pros: "All was OK"
Pros: "I thought the crew were extremely helpful and friendly and made for a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The coffee was just "okay"."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. They could not have been MORE pleasant. Really great staff, loved them. Even the captain or pilot was great, made announcements to keep us up to date on the arrival and explained everything clearly."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food was okay. It wasn't bad or anything, just okay."
Pros: "Boarded on Time"
Cons: "Flight took off but the plane was faulty. We landed an hour after take off waited in a room with no air conditioning for over an hour with no updates. After 3 hours after the flight was supposed to leave they cancelled the flight. Very poor and very disappointed!"
Pros: "Lucky enough that the flight was half empty so there was space for the passengers, the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was from Faro in July excesseding temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius outside, while inside was a an absolute freezer, not more than 15/16 degrees inside. I had to change cloathing mid flight cus I couldn't deal with the cold air anymore. On previous flight from London stansted to fato was exactly the same, and there wasn't any difference, we asked if we could turn off the aircon, no answer was given, neither warm covers were provided since the air was so cold. The flight attendant was female, by the name tag was "Praya" was somewhat a bit insensitive, but I realised after that she was as unfortunate as we were cus she was wearing a short sleeve shirt part of uniform, and experiencing the same as the rest of the passengers. The temperature issue caused the flight to be extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome!"
Cons: "They were 25 min late landing. Even though we were taking the same plan from London City to Glasgow, we had to get off and go through customs and reboard, all in 5 min. They knew we had to do that and they almost took off without us and a few others in the same position. Then the stewardesses acted like we caused them to take off late to Glasgow....really rude."
Cons: "Deylayed Took us out on the bus and then back in and then back out"
Cons: "Delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "2 and a half hour delay only announced last minute and they kept pushing it back. Unable to get my boarding pass online and huge queue in the airport to get it"
Cons: "Check in slow."
Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."
Pros: "Seats are nice and comfy"
Cons: "Flight was late. Ground crew were atrocious and lost passengers and then insisted on counting the whole plane twice (as they got it wrong the first time). The flight was delayed by 4hrs in total and then Aerlingus denied compensation was due. Appalling performance"
Pros: "Comfort. Ease of travel."
Cons: "Inflight shopping range"
Cons: "fly cleanup"
Pros: "I liked service given for special needs older senior"
Cons: "Landed early in LAX and then had to wai about 20 minutes to get a gate!!"
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew"
Cons: "Disembark down steps at back of plane onto tarmac then carry bags up two flights of steps, tiring and dangerous of falling"
Pros: "The ground staff at Heathrow were friendly"
Cons: "The old A320 is among the most uncomfortable planes imaginable, but the flight is short"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment and all the close bathroom locations"
Cons: "The crew members would always pass me when passing out water or something It’s almost as if I did not exist or I was purposely looked over more than once Then I never got a smile and it seemed as if they wanted to quickly brush over me"
Cons: "My flight from the US to Dublin was delayed by 3.5 hours because the original inbound plane broke down and they sent a smaller replacement. Then they could not locate a crew."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Clean and comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Best food I ever had on a plane"
Cons: "Felt like it was very difficult to obtain water. Confusion with checking in at the gate"
Pros: "The crew was great once aboard, the food was well above average for airplane food, the drinks were reasonably priced and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Attempting to check in online the day before was a nightmare and after half an hour on two different sites and an hour of speaking to very rude customer service reps for both BA and Aer Lingus, we were told we just had to check in in person. The check-in line opened fifteen minutes late, the woman who checked us in didn't answer our questions because she was busy talking to her friend. Once on the plane the Airbus seats were truly awful and should not hold a person for 10+ hours. The wifi also never worked."
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."
Cons: "There was a 2 hour delay which caused us to miss our connecting flight. When we got off the plane we were given vouchers for a later flight but were then “bumped” from that flight because the tickets weren’t booked correctly. Everyone from American Airlines went home and we were left stranded in a foreign airport to figure our own way to Dublin. Worst flight and customer service EVER!"
Pros: "Really comfortable seat"
Cons: "Had to divert to Shannon due to fig. Bussed in FREEZING ancient vehicle to Cork"
Pros: "Friendly helpful crew"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed by 30 minutes"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Everything else! No entertainment. Charged you for everything! Water! Coffee which was instant, not even brewed. Plane was older than dirt. Worn interior."
Pros: "I was surprised at the minimal effort that went into that transatlantic flight. Disgraceful. I'm turned off enough to never fly aer lingus again. It was barely two steps above Ryan Air."
Cons: "The food looked like one put any effort into it, the coffee only came with milk and no milk substitute, there was only one kind of tea--no decaf and no herbal tea, and no butter substitute for people with dietary restrictions. Just a complete unthoughtful shame. My back is still sore from the lack of ergonomic considerations in seating. The blankets were cheap and thin and the plane was loud with no complimentary earplugs or sleep masks. Awful experience."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating. After boarding was complete they moved several passengers to other rows which allowed a better distribution of open seats."
Cons: "Per usual, airline food is blah!"
Pros: "The service was wonderful ! I’m handicapped and I was treated very well!"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Aer Lingus are always late departing, but it was a blessing this time as I'd have missed the connection otherwise!"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "At Frankfurt Main airport there was only one person at the check in counter and the lines were very long. Maybe after 30 minutes they opened another counter."
Pros: "We had good seats and the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "We were there 3 hours ahead of flight, but the desk was not open and the wait after we finally determined where to go was too long. Took off late, which set us all up for a mess due to the tight connection in Dublin. Additionally, sat on the tarmac after landing making us even later"
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Appearance and selection out of date Food was cheap and horrible"
Pros: "Great service as usual"
Pros: "Departure on time, good crew service"
Cons: "On arrival - long wait at the gate"
Pros: "Punctuality and cost"
Cons: "The aircraft was too old and poorly kept."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "The snack at end of 8 hour flight was a fajita (good), but no soft drink offered with it, just tea or coffee."
Pros: "Our first Are Lingus flight - would do it again!"
Pros: "The cree's energy and friendliness ."
Cons: "I don't think there were movies to be watched on the individual screens."
Cons: "Narrowness of seats is extreme. Food was terrible."
Cons: "Cheap headphones given out for the movies, almost impossible to hear speech"
Pros: "Ahead of time"
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??????"
Cons: "That we paid for breakfast for that segment. Cramped & I'm average."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly. Seats were comfortable. Food was decent. In-flight entertainment was very good. I would fly Aer Lingus again. Actually, I will make a point to book with this airline. I also really liked clearing US Customs in Dublin. This saved time and hassle when landing at O'Hare."
Cons: "I liked it all."
Pros: "Great entertainment and food."
Pros: "IT was dope!"
Cons: "I was hungover."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, the flight arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment offered, aside from what you could purchase. But as it was a very short flight, this didn't make much of a difference for me. Overall, good short flight."
Pros: "I will say the Airline seems to run a very professional operation."
Cons: "They NEVER transferred my luggage to my final destination. We spent four days in Dublin without our luggage. Aer Lingus still is looking for it according to their web site. We found it here in Fort Lauderdale right where we departed from. As one can imagine, it makes for a terrible trip when your missing your things. Especially warm clothes..."
Pros: "I liked that they eventually let my wife and I sit together."
Cons: "The tickets we were assigned were separate. I have no idea why you would assign a couple separate seats, but thankfully they were both window seats and excellent bargaining chips. They partnered with United to get us home and only booked out luggage to O'Hare, which was not our final destination. They lost two identical bags along the way from Barcelona to O'Hare. My bet is they're being rifled through in Dublin right now."
Cons: "We didn't like the charge to select seats together"
Cons: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Showed up an hour and a half before departure time at Chicago OHare and there was no one staffed at the check in desk to print out boarding passes and they had no electronic kiosk to print out boarding passes either. There was just a sign that said call customer service. Then the several passengers that were never boarded for the afternoon flight due to the unavailability of staff were asked to pay $200 to get on the next flight due to "corporate policy." We refused and booked another airline. Horrible customer service."
Pros: "Nice plane, nice crew, the airline with the best cup of tea and it is the only airline with Tayto Crisps."
Pros: "The crew, the comforts, the convenience of USA pre-arrival in dublin"
Cons: "The unscheduled pre-flight maintenance that held us up a bit at the beginning."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable though a tad bit cramped."
Cons: "Window was dirty from someone touching it on a previous flight. Cannot wear headphones during takeoff or landing was an inconvenience. Cabin crew made sure all passengers were held tightly to their rules but then got themselves a coffee and chatted up front the majority of the time. (Only an hour trip, so no beverages or snacks for us)"
Cons: "Significant delays"
Pros: "We took the offer of putting cabin baggage in hold. Some of those that retained theirs had "oversized" bags that should have been taken from them at the steps of the plane. As this did not happen there were a lot of problems including the problem of opening the lockers"
Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"
Cons: "Unbelievable waste of time and gross inefficient experience trying to get assistance service for a wheelchair abominable delays wrong numbers and general disconnection between ground services & personnel. No problem in New York with Delta no problem in Barcelona but London was a sad performance."
Pros: "Things were pretty smooth."
Cons: "Could have done without the flight delay."
Cons: "A plane made any year after 1990... Last minute flight switch caused great discomfort and VERY narrow seats"
Cons: "Incoming flight delayed so late departure"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Never board check in luggage at lcy, they don't know what to do with it"
Pros: "Not enough information"
Cons: "The flight times went explained properly very missleading"
Pros: "Short flight, uncrowded Embraer plane, easy check in at City airport and easy arrival at Prague."
Cons: "Late departure due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” - which seems to be the norm."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed early, no queues at passport control and bags were delivered quickly."
Cons: "Finding out that I had to pay more for my bag."
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins"
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Clean efficient on time Nice staff"

Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"
Pros: "A bit late getting started but very nice after that."
Cons: "Must you charge for tea?"
Pros: "The gate agents had no idea how to effectively board passengers in an expeditious and civilized manner. The on-board crew was top-notch. Seat room was adequate, but justthat."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and staff wasn't actively being helpful with information. Got absolutely nothing to drink/eat on the plane-not even a glass of water! The flight crew was just ok, no one "stood out" as good or excellent. Again, nothing about this flight made me want to definitely fly British Airways again."
Pros: "On board entertainment was very good with movies, tv, games, etc. The flight was on-time. The food was good. No hassles regarding paying for a checked bag."
Cons: "Small seating area. Paying extra for advance seat assignments."
Pros: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "Seats are way too tight. Plane itself was very loud."
Pros: "Great service, and very smooth flight"
Cons: "I got to the airport the morning of my flight from Warsaw -Dublin and was told my flight was cancelled and no longer exists. Luckily I got a hold of my daughter who was in LA at this time and woke her up at 1am with this issue. She called the web booking company Webjet where you directed us to buy the flight, and was told by Webjet that my flight was cancelled the day before and we were not notified IN ANY WAY! By some miracle, my daughter was able to talk to Webjet and get me on a new flight last minute. Again, this is all happening at 1am California time while I am stranded at the airport in Warsaw! Unacceptable!!! I am however glad that the issue was resolved and I made it home safely. But I think someone needs to look into this immediately because if it wasn't for my daughter, I wouldn't have left the Warsaw airport due to the fact that the airline cancelled the flight and neither the airline, Kayak, nor Webjet notified me...."
Pros: "Easy boarding, quick travel and smooth landing."
Cons: "Basic snacks"
Pros: "They got us there."
Cons: "We flew in from San Francisco to London on full-price Business Class tickets. Stupidly, I bought Coach tickets separately for the short leg to Dublin. British Air would not check two bags all the way to Dublin. For one of the bags, we did the measurements, and joined all the other people who haul extra luggage onto the plane for carry-on. For the other bag, sixty-five Pounds Sterling (about eighty-five bucks) for the other bag for a one hour flight. Wow! That put a big damper on the whole flight experience."
Pros: "Always a good flight out of LCY"
Cons: "Gate not given until last minute. The most cramped plane I have ever been on and I’m petite. No complimentary anything."
Cons: "Took hand luggage at gate and waited an hour to get it at baggage claim"
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Food options were bad"
Pros: "Good flight, bit bumpy due to weather."
Cons: "4-hour delay for a 40minute flight"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system did not work well."
Cons: "Four hours before departure, the flight was canceled! Unfortunately, the ticket workers were too few in trying to reboot all the passengers. I was transferred to United after an hour and a half wait but was sent back to Aer Lingus (who was operating the flight for BA) by United because the Aer Lingus ticket personnel made the reservation on United but failed to provide the information necessary to generate the ticket. Never British Airways/ Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "They tried to help me in person by making a phone call to the security gate."
Cons: "Despite the call to security (I guess it was to the security gate? Not sure) it seemed standard the way they spoke, not as if anyone seemed empathetic to my situation as I am a graduate student and was in dire need of returning to Dublin, Ireland for work the following morning. I have had a different experience with different British Airways representatives. The customer service on the phone seemed good, but in person, it just felt like robots following policy unfortunately. I spent $150 for a roundtrip flight and could not use my "Return" portion of my ticket. I arrived to the security gate and I could not be let in. My flight was even delayed which should have allowed me time to scan through security but it did not. My phone is temporarily unavailable as it is in the shop for repair, while I navigate a foreign country without the use of maps or access to email so easily. I checked my email at a random hotel in London for 1.5 hours, and 30 mins after I left, apparently an email was sent by BA to me, alerting me that I could check-in my luggage, instead of having to take it on-board as carry-on. All these details would have been nice to know a little more ahead of time. I wish I could be refunded for my flight, as that was the last flight of the evening, and I ended up having to go to Air Lingus to pay nearly 300 pounds to get on their last flight back to Dublin. As a graduate student, working on my thesis and fulfilling a job here in Ireland as the final leg of my Master's degree, any money saved is a help. Forfeiting half my ticket, and purchasing a new one twice the price of my original was not something I was expecting. I was an emotional wreck getting on-board my other airline's flight. Just not a positive experience that resonated with me overall :( I wish I had more positive insight to share, especially on social media or Yelp about my experience to London and back with BA. Plane was small, and complimentary drinks were not served as every flight I have ever been on in 30 years, and that is several several dozen, have ALWAYS given at least a drink, even if they didn't have peanuts/pretzels. Pretty disappointing.."
Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"
Pros: "The seats are small but otherwise a fine flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No preferred boarding for business class. Business class seat was exactly same as economy Food option was not good"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plane didn't take off for a long time after boarding."
Pros: "Flight attendants really are nice folks"
Cons: "1. Bought ticket via kayak chicago to prague, so I got outgoing trip on British airways but they codeshare it out to Aer Lingus. Unfortunately, these dumbos haven't figured out that no matter what the gyrations they do, I still want to be able to pick my seat beforehand. Nada. Not possible online. And forget calling aer lingus 800 number. called twice and was on hold for 30 min each time, they dont bother answering. 2. At airport, I was willing to pay extra for a good seat because of the issues above, so they said they would help me out. Ha - the manager who purportedly was helping me out gave me a seat up front next to a shrieking infant and behind a bassinet (he knew exactly what he was doing but didnt care). They really lie and think we're idiots. 3. Same thing for flight from dublin to prague. This time last row next to toliets Dont fly aer lingus if you dont book directly with them, same for british airways I looked at BA's website - they do let you book a seat in advance but you must pay something for every single seat. Crazy. There are no free seats"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Going through immigration in Dublin and the flight over behind well managed"
Cons: "Security in Dublin is a bit disorgation going from the U.K. Into the US terminal. I lost my global entry card in the process and not much one could do with that process"
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Cons: "There was no entertainment for that flight."
