Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "How friendly the crew is Ease of boarding Good organization Mostly on time"
Cons: "At least free beverages:)"
Cons: "the worst gluten-free food of any airline, and I've tried quite a few! And when the person in front reclines their seat, there's very little space left."
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: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Customer interaction is a joke"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our bags were lost, no apologies (in fact, the phone was put down on me twice), when the bags were returned after 24 hours, one was damaged and had to be replaced at my expense....no chance of a refund. My family and I will NEVER TRAVEL WITH AER LINGUS AGAIN....the worst airline in the world"
Pros: "On a 7 hour flight you want comfort. It was so smooth and easy. Watched movies, read, just relaxed. I've flown with Aer lingus before and it was just as amazing. I will ALWAYS use Are Lingus when I fly to the UK or Ireland and Shannon is a Gem of an airport. Most amazing airport I have ever been to!"
Cons: "All food and beverages had to be bought"
Pros: "Comfort. Ease of travel."
Cons: "Inflight shopping range"
Pros: "Crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Announcement could be clearer. Sometimes gabled and indistinct."

Cons: "Flight was about an hour late taking off"
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"
Cons: "Having to leave the terminal and going through security again was insanely stressful and I barely made my flight."
Cons: "My bag was lost. The staff at the airport was friendly enough and assured me it would be delivered to my hotel in dublin that afternoon. It’s now the next day and I still have not received my bag. I’ve call multiple times and still cannot give me a straight answer. So now I have to check out of this hotel and hope my bag shows up before moving on to my next destination. Also, on the flight I asked for 2 glasses of tap water while they came around asking if we would like to purchase a soft or alcoholic drink or snacks. There was no water on the cart so she had to continue servicing the rest of the plane and said she would be back. The first flight attendant must of forgotten, that’s okay she was probably busy. I asked a second flight attendant, 10 minutes go by and she still didn’t bring us water. Finally asked a 3rd flight attendant and he brought it to us quickly, this was 30miniutes after I first asked. I felt that my request wasn’t as important because I didn’t have to purchase it."
Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge. This was very frustrating and seems to be a common problem as it was also the same scenario on the out bound flight to London which then caused me to miss my transatlantic flight as Aerlingus delayed the flight leaving Dublin plus air bridge problem"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Made me check my carryon bag then it was opened - why - don’t know - and items missing along with my luggage strap. Will NEVER use Aer Lingus again"
Pros: "Waiting ages at another carousel from NY flight meant that I missed the booked flight and had to pay another $60.00. This was efficiently done...but notice about bags being taken off roundabout would help.I thought it was a tour groups's and did not search for my missing bag ...Young woman in the Air linguis Dublin baggage office sweet and patient ...give her a raise."
Cons: "The enormous distance between getting off one plane and trying to get on to another ...some signage confusing re Internal direction to Terminal 2"
Pros: "You lost myluhgage. I have no clean clothes to ware"
Pros: "They were helpful on the ground, though some of the crew were cold on the plane, not unhelpful, but not helpful"
Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"
Cons: "seats... no space menu.... skip it movie choice ... fair at best"
Cons: "I had a changeable ticket but could only do so a 1counter. Missed earlier flight as a result. Terrible service. At Dublin airport going out they let me change at the gate. Bot not in Heathrow."
Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."
Pros: "Cold air was on for the entire flight, despite it being 4 degrees outside"
Cons: "Broken seats, headphone socket not working, smell of aviation fuel in cabin and then our luggage did not arrive at our final destination."
Pros: "Best thing was the Aer Lingus check-in in London, which advised me to switch to earlier flight knowing that delays were imminent and that if I took my regularly scheduled flight, I would probably miss my connection in Dublin to Washington DC. Kudos to them."
Cons: "The online check-in does not work well."
Cons: "the food was really expensive"
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!"
Cons: "First time I flew with Aer Lingus and can't say I will do it again. Didn't realize I was flying across continents in such a small plane. The flight attendants were barely civil; the bin above me housed supplies and on more than one occasion an attendant with visibly wet armpits leaned over me without nary an excuse me."
Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"
Pros: "On board staff is very nice."
Cons: "Ticket counter agent at SFO placed wrong tag on suitcase. This created lost luggage 4 four days. Boarding gate time posted on boarding pass from DUBto SFO as gate closing at 10:25 am when flight left at 12:30pm. We ran to gate to be told the gate won’t open for boarding until 11:40. While at DUB going to LHR none of the Aer Lingus staff told us we were to go to British Airways terminal until we got to counter. Why couldn’t there be advance notice?Aer Lingus is lame. This was my first & last time I fly Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Flight was short and without any problems."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Cons: "My issue has more to do with after the flight, than the actual flight. My luggage was lost somehow between Heathrow and Shannon. The lack of communication I received from Aer Lingus, and the length of time it took for me to get the luggage was a bit ridiculous. I was never told what happened to the luggage and I was given the timeline to receive my luggage within 24 hours. Well it took over 48 hours to get the luggage. I was given specific timeframes to call the Shannon Airport Aer Lingus luggage desk, which I followed. Had to leave a message every time, and not once was it returned. The only communication I did get was calling the Shannon Airport directly and working with their employees. I could tell they were frustrated with me, which is completely understandable, because they weren't the appropriate people to communicate with. I was just very disappointed in the customer service."
Pros: "Punctuality and cost"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Delay at Dublin waiting for plane to get parked"
Pros: "Configuration of seating"
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: "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: "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: "I'm not sure if it is the fault of Aer Lingus but the gate is not know until the last minute. Flight takes of at 8:50 and they don't post the gate until 8:00"
Pros: "Flight attendant was delightful."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
Cons: "Broken kiosks at airport meant that everyone had to check in at the counter - only problem was there were no Aer Lingus staff anywhere to be found. We, and dozens of other passengers waited 40 min+ before anyone showed up. Then when staff arrived they were oblivious to the huge line that had formed - they carried on their small talk amongst theirselves oblivious to the passengers who had been waiting for a long time to get their boarding pass."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled & this meant I missed my connecting flight to Donegal at 1 pm -- had to wait for the 7 pm flight to Donegal -- I was not happy as I was to attend my Mother's 80 th birthday"
Cons: "I needed wheelchair assistance due to a back injury. The person that picked me up at the aircraft from London was terrific, l was taken to the terminal and told that another team member would take me to the aircraft. No one showed up until the aircraft was fully boarded, then he left me at the beginning of the ramp instead of wheeling me to the aircraft. I was very disappointed! I was so disappointed I didn’t wait for a pickup at the airport in Amsterdam. I regret it, because I’m in so much pain!"
Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."
Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."
Cons: "The unpleasant unhelpful staff"
Cons: "always late"
Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the travel time to destination as it was the quickest flight due to circumstances and time I needed to travel."
Cons: "I didn't like near enough everything about this flight."
Pros: "Thai airways much better"
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."
Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."
Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."
Cons: "No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced"
Pros: "flight crew were very friendly and mostly helpful, except when they could not locate my meal, and i ended up getting about half of what the other diners got."
Cons: "boarding seems intent of creating class divisions. it may be useful for profitability, but it seems quite weird in today's world. food was significantly worse than the food on another flight i had taken the same day, delhi to london. seats are a bit janky and we had problems with the seat ahead reclining too much and not being able to be held upright."
Pros: "Nothing really. Except the general BA at T5 which is fine"
Cons: "Everything about the flight. From low quality, poor breakfast on Club cabin to poor service and no entertainment on the flight. It is not certainly value for money for traveling Club."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic, the seats were spacious but not overly comfortable. Flight was punctual and bags came quickly."
Cons: "Lounge was overcrowded, the plane was very old (the headrest of the man next to me fell off) with no entertainment whatsoever"
Pros: "All perfect !!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Only accept credit cards on board."
Pros: "Quick flight. Nice crew"
Cons: "The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Cabin was shoddy. New beverage service!"
Pros: "Food awful no entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was so somth"
Cons: "The crow service was so bad"
Pros: "The payment system was down so it was painful and slow"
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak"
Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."
Pros: "Staff are excellent, really friendly, respectful service. Food (expensive as always on planes) but excellent quality, really good choice to use M&S as providers. Excellent communication from pilot and cabin staff on delays before takeoff."
Cons: "System for paying by food with Avios points did not work. Plane left almost an hour late due to delays (landed 30 mins late)."
Pros: "Decent seat pitch on the relatively new a320 configuration. Lost my bag for a weekend trip, unapologetic ground handling staff, waited 90 mins to report it and no gesture of goodwill to remedy the situation."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Rude, entitled and lazy employees. Zero recognition of Emerald status. Forced me to check my bag which fit the onboard limits and flew on 3 flights, incl one on BA - on this very same itinerary."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID."
Pros: "Cabin crew always professional. The cabin was fresh and new."
Cons: "the leg room In club Europe is appalling. No premium feel at all."
Pros: "Food on board was tasty"
Cons: "Priority boarding not clear."
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour outward, nearly an hour flight back."
Pros: "Crew was supportive and very kind"
Cons: "Big delay due to unanounced gate for boarding. Systems at the airport were not giving the info. It took more than an hour to gather all passengers to the plane, which ended in 1hr 20 min delay."
Pros: "Cleanness and convenience."
Cons: "Seat selection only 24 hours ahead."
Cons: "We sat at the runway for 1 hour"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, no extra charge for emergency exit seat, snack and drinks included, modern interior, on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "People abusing the free drinks and the crew supplying them with them."
Cons: "It took ages to get everyone to board. Arrived in Amsterdam almost an hour later. BA need to either speed up the boarding process or allow earlier boarding time."
Pros: "Only scraped a two as was enough movies to watch."
Pros: "For a reasonably priced flight the comfort and free drink/snack were above average and very much appreciated."
Cons: "BA's online check in let them down though; the server kept crashing. They also wanted to charge £15 to pick one's seat, even at point of check in, a tacky ploy to pad profits. Forgiven on this instance as the flight was only 50 min, but would make me think twice for any longer distances."
Pros: "The seats were quite roomy and very comfortable. The flat bed with cozy duvet was great for actually getting some sleep during such a long flight. The amenity kit with Aromatherapy products was also really nice and I liked that they had separate kits for men and women."
Cons: "I was surprised that the crew didn't offer water proactively as I'm used to that on all long haul flights. I had to go ask several times for water. The meal services seemed quite slow and protracted as well."
Cons: "The seat was little more than a seat in economy as to width, leg room , etc. Really not worth the cost of a business class ticket. Whilst the service was good , the food was mediocre. This was our first [ and possibly last] business class flight with BA and will stick with our usual business class airlines e.g. Qantas, Virgin Atlantic , Delta, Fiji Air, Virgin Australia ,etc."
Pros: "Comfortable seats; good choices of movies and decent food."
Cons: "(1) Water dripping from overhead luggage area during takeoff; we were told it was due to condensation. It was a good amount of water! (2) One of the male staff would not let us stand near the toilet area and not so politely asked that we go back to our seats. It was a long file so to be told you can't stretch your legs is unacceptable."
Pros: "Punctuality, boarding, baggage handling."
Cons: "The space is very limited - almost no knee space and huge boxes under the seats. Crew not very attentive. Sandwich for dinner."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine"
Cons: "The lack of any concern or effort on Iberia's part once in Havana sans luggage was disgraceful. We were without any personal items or medications for SIX DAYS of a cycling holiday, because Iberia failed to answer the phone or deliver the baggage. We were obliged to take a 6.5 hour journey from where we were on day 6 (rural Cuba) to personally collect the baggage from Havana airport ourselves. NOT okay, Iberia/BA. Never again."
