We talked to a person from Air Lingus and he said it happens often but there's nothing to do. on board, the head sets are very old and you could only hear from one ear using the head set provided by Air Lingus. in 2018 ?! seriously !?"

Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The service was really poor. An international flight wee u have to pay for the alcohol, and no cheap either!! The food was mediocre! The plane was outdated. No USB or headphone. Only those offered by the airline and the sky da was awful!! The seats were small and not comfortable! The tv screen wasn't responding to the fingers, had to use the remote!! Everything was not nice at all. The stewardess and steward were not pleasant, it looked like they didn't want to be there or they were bother!! I will never fly again either British or Aer Lingos."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food not good , entertainment system old un updated and slow"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At Frankfurt Main airport the check in counter had initially only one person and the lines were very long. After about 30 minutes they opened 2 more counters. We were waiting at the gate for the bus and the flight time had passed , but no announcement that the flight is delayed. finally we get on the plane and then we get an announcement that we the plane does not have clearance for another hour and half. The entertainment on board is very very old stuff, and shockingly the food is also bad and no vegetarian food."

Pros: "The flight left almost on time which was good and landed a little over 20 minutes late which was ok."
Cons: "I had a window seat and felt very crammed. Also, we had to wait close to an hour for our luggage to come through. That was most annoying."

Cons: "Was hungry."

Pros: "Staff was always nice & helpful."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and arm rest doesn't fully fold back. The airplane wasn't cleaned up after the previous flight so there was a few wads of tissue paper around our seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."

Pros: "Nothing."
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!"

Cons: "Could not get the WiFi to work."

Pros: "The cabin was quite comfortable and we had all we needed from the get go, ear plug, TV, blanket, and pillow. We had good seating as there were only 2 seats on each wing. Even tough we couldn't reserve our seats, these were good."
Cons: "Why do those long distance air hostesses treat us as if we were a nuisance? Not a smile, rude; they had decided that those going to the US had to be bad people. Are they that political or just bad mannered????"

Cons: "Not polite and patient enough"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Limited choice of entertainment. ****Lost my luggage both destination bound and home bound**** Being kept in the plane for an extended period of time after having landed. Not even a coffee during the connecting flights (Dublin to Cardiff and Gatwick to Dublin). Poor connecting facilities and having to repeat security screening before connecting to the second leg of trip."

Cons: "Plane is Dirty. Trash around seat floor and crumbs where remote is. No charging station on seats."

Pros: "They did a great job. Pillows and blankets were provided. We also got to have maps showing us where we were flying over and how long until we landed. Made the trip much easier. I've always appreciated the affordable flights Aer Lingus has offered travelers."

Pros: "Crew was great very attentive"
Cons: "My monitor kept restarting or would freeze"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic:) Food unfortunately not so good. Can person who order such m type of food try it actually first? TV system had issues so I had to switch places, likely flight was not full. Other passengers had issues with remote controls Plane needs some kind of checking (interior). Can you setup different TV programs/movies per route? I was flying to Dublin then back to LA, nothing much to watch :/ repetitive selection:/"
Cons: "TV selection Food"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"

Pros: "The videos worked."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew. The arm rests don't go all the way up which makes it really hard when traveling with a toddler. This was the case on the short flight and the longer flight to LAX. Not a fan of the food. Most of the crew seemed preoccupied and grumpy."
