Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Captain gave some nice hotspots to look out for as clear day."
Cons: "Standing for ages before boarding and in plane. Very basic and couldn't print boarding pass before travel. Seemed like a glitch with Aerlingus and I phoned but said they would forward to technical dept. No one got back to me. This caused unnecessary stress due to connections."
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Super friendly, comfortable for the long flight, plenty to keep you occupied. Its my 3rd time flying with them and the flight is always smooth. And it doesn't hurt that there is a huge shamrock on the tail wing to make superstitious people like me, feel a little bit better! I will only use them!"
Cons: "All food and beverages had to be bought"

Cons: "Nada de entretenimiento, nada"
Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge.

Pros: "Flight was short and without any problems."
Cons: "this wasn't a BA flight.. it was air lingus and it was a disaster. shouldn't have been charged BA rates for this"
Pros: "The flight from LHR to DUB was pleasant, short, and uneventful. I blissfully caught up on sleep during most of it!"
Cons: "After we landed in DUB, some other aircraft's being in the wrong place seemed to cause us quite a long delay, which meant that I very nearly missed my connecting flight to IAD. My suitcase, perhaps because of this same taxiing delay, missed the flight and had to be sent on the same flight the next day - though it reached me without incident about 24 hours after I reached my home."
Pros: "Quiet, short"
Pros: "On time, no fuss, got us there"

Cons: "Minimal service didn't appear to be any attendants down ng periodic water service but I did doze off and may have missed it"
Pros: "Fast service, kept well apprised of arrival times and such."
Cons: "Small plane but that really can't be helped. Also I didn't get the seats I picked online but that is most likely user error."
Cons: "We missed this flight due to Kayak's failure to get us on any other flights to Chicago after our original one was cancelled."
Pros: "Staff is great, attractive, and polite. Seats are comfortable. Everything was great."

Cons: "Took carry on at gate. Not even water served."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was easy, landing was smooth."

Cons: "Food could be better. Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Everything went surprisingly smooth. Coffee was good, but had to pay for it"
Cons: "Didn't try the food"
Cons: "My only complaint is that my luggage was delayed on my trip out, and that the delivery service did not communicate well. I was expecting a two-hour prompt for delivery, and received a text from the delivery person saying he was at the door. I was having lunch 30 minutes away, and had to hurry up, which affected the best pub meal that I had in London."
Pros: "Smooth flight....nice crew...clean"
Cons: "Outdated entertainmant systems, older plane....too many ads about buying goods on the plane....wine is bad and the food is just ok."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight which needed no meal, but a cold drink (not water), free of charge, would have come in appreciated. This comes in very useful (and even necessary) when it is remembered that it was a morning flight which made passengers to leave their houses very early without having time to take breakfast before leaving home. And those who needed assistance with a wheel chair were left at the last point to the boarding of flight as early as 7:00 AM with no opportunity to look around for food."
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"
Cons: "Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish."
Pros: "It was great."
Pros: "Quick and Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Flight was wonderful, landing a little rough"
Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."
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: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "loved the interactive flight information, movies, and the food and crew were great"
Cons: "Getting through customs in UK and getting luggage tags to Dublin was a nightmare. Took over 2 hours, went through 4 lines to get luggage tags and given misinformation. Poorest travel experience in 40 years of traveling. Brits need to learn how to expedite processing."
Pros: "Not enough information"
Cons: "The flight times went explained properly very missleading"
Cons: "Finding out that I had to pay more for my bag."
Pros: "Kind and caring staff"
Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins"
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food and entertainment are not applicable for this flight as it is too short to need this anyway"
Cons: "Late, no food or drink, confusion at checkin"
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?"
Cons: "That I missed the flight because of Iberia airlines"
Pros: "Boarding clerk was excellent. He was very helpful"
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: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "Please include a complimentary tea and/or snack."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "It would be nice if someone cared about something. It didn't seem like anyone liked their job or cared about the passengers. All seemed like corporate greed. I have flown over 40,000 miles this year. This was the most unsatisfactory flight. Come on guys, create a good environment for a win win situation. Happy passengers make more money for the corporation in the end."
Pros: "Did not like that I had to buy a coke. Like common really?"
Pros: "I liked the professionalism of the cede and the cleanliness of the cabin"
Cons: "I was a little frustrated with the delayed start"
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: "I really liked how neat & professional the crew were dressed. The plane was new & the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that beverages (like water, juice, coffee) weren't complimentary. All the flights I've been on in the U.S. offer those for free, along with a small snack."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight. It was so short that we didn't even have time to get a drink or snack. Quite a bit of turbulence but I think that might be typical."
Cons: "Gate not given until last minute. The most cramped plane I have ever been on and I’m petite. No complimentary anything."
Cons: "Horrible plane. Sounded like it was on its last legs."
Pros: "Short flight, slept all the way!"
Cons: "Did not eat and no entertainment on this short flight so food and entertainment not applicable."
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Food options were bad"
Pros: "My flight was changed at airport"
Cons: "Barely made flight-- no help offered"
Pros: "The staff onboard the flight was friendly."
Cons: "There was a last minute gate change that was not announced until boarding was closing, so I had to race across to the other side of the airport to catch the plane. There was no food/drinks provided on the flight."
Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"
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.."
Pros: "Quick and easy!"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plane didn't take off for a long time after boarding."
Cons: "The service was terrible and staff was unpleasant"
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"
Cons: "There was no entertainment for that flight."
Pros: "I was exhausted and so was my flight buddy. The staff was helpful and quietc and got us on board and to our destination without us having to think which was great."
Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"
Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"
Cons: "could not be delayed"
Cons: "I missed my flight because my previous flight was delayed 2.5 hrs"
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "To be going home!"
Cons: "Female crew taking orders then taking ages to ring drinks a d they move on to others instead of finishing what they were doing. Then you're lucky if you get given 1 sugar and no spoon lol."
Pros: "Food was excellent; boarding a litlle bit crowded, but didn't notice as had been busy; crew has been kind and helpful"
Cons: "Unconfortable chair seats; seatbelt too short; tables too low for tall ppl"
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Pros: "The crew was well trained, kind and receptive. The pilot managed to drive through a storm and even arrive 10 minutes faster after leaving 5 minutes late."
Cons: "Passengers traveling with pets took our reserved seats. The places for our baggages were occupied. When addressing this issue, we were told to move further ahead to empty seats. There was no meal included, and the one we purchased could not be paid by POS."
Pros: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Cons: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Cons: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Pros: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Cons: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Cons: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Cons: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pros: "The added touches make all the difference! We didn’t expect free food and was delighted to receive breakfast. The chairs were much more comfortable than any other plane I’ve been on due to the adjustable head rest, and as a regular flyer to Cyprus, this made a difference. The sweets served just before landing is an excellent idea and something that we do need due to our ears, so this was appreciated. staff were attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "To have the menu and duty free booklet at the beginning of the flight would have been helpful."
Pros: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"
Cons: "The plane seemed very old, toilet in poor condition."
Cons: "7hour delayin onnecting flight! Seats on plane torn and very uncomfortable, meal booked but no food available."
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled for 3 hours later than original departure. Check in opened less than two hours before the rescheduled flight time so everyone was stuck waiting at check-in for hours. We couldnt even go in and relax inside at restaurants or the gate because online check in wasnt available. Then the flight was further delayed with no news about when the new take off would be or why the delay. Finally boarded a tiny plane that had propellers and a loud take off, if you easily fright on planes probably not the best choice for you. And then someone started smoking on the flight and the attendants had to announce again that smoking wasnt allowed. On and off throughout the flight it smelled like someone was smoking so I wonder if it was even coming from the cockpit."
Pros: "Flight was delay by 1 hour consequently my luggage did Ot arrive with me to Katowice on top of that there is no more flights today from waw to kat with lot Airline"
Cons: "Serive to pay extra luggage very very slow"
Pros: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Cons: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Every thing."
Pros: "On time ,clean aircraft..."
Cons: "Crew was very serious...a smile can make a difference....."
Pros: "The flight went well."
Cons: "Bag drop off was terrible and stressful. We arrived 2.5 Hours early to drop the ONE suitcase and have brunch. We queued for 1.5 Hours to then be blocked as all six counters were given over to another flight and people who arrived LATER then us for our flight got to go first. It was incredibly stressful and frustrating especially when I checked in online before arriving at the airport. We had to rush and run through the airport and board at final call. In fact it would put me off flying with Blue Air again."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled a week before and didn't get a replacement flight. Got half of my money back. Will never book a blue air flight again !"
Cons: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."
Pros: "The flight was punctual"
Cons: "I got charged twice for luggage and couldn't get a refund"
Cons: "Rude crew, not organised work , not enough space for legs"

Pros: "Free drinks, cheap flight and fairly comfortable!"
Cons: "No allocated seat."
Pros: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Cons: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"
Pros: "staff very friendly and polite ..airplane wasnt full so i get the chance to have a nice fly with my 2 little sons"
Pros: "Everything was awesome!!! I am going to buy only from you my next flights."
Cons: "The agent lady on the desk did nothing to help us get on our flight. She refused to identify herself. We intend to sue the company for the damages caused to us because of this bad attitude."
Pros: "I recomand to Everyone to use the airlines!!Very good quality"
Cons: "Nothing , was everything perfect!The stewardesses very nice"
Cons: "Space to sit, especially when seated in the middle"
