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."

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."

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."

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.

I was flying to Dublin then back to LA, nothing much to watch :/ repetitive selection:/"
