KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Pros: "Well maintained and good friendly staff."
Cons: "Alcoholic drinks should be free."
Cons: "Food and limited movie selections"

Cons: "The gal who checked me in for my flight didn’t check my baggage all the way through even though I have a connecting flight with Aer Lingus to LA. However, fortunately, the baggage team caught the error and retagged my luggage properly. By the time I realized her error, they had already emailed me with the solution! Yay baggage team!! Thank you!"
Pros: "Nothing since I’m still in dublin"
Cons: "There was minimum help. Wait actually, in Manchester there was none. No one at the gate until 2:15pm when the flight was already 20mins late! No one updated an incoming flight with passengers needed to make connections."

Pros: "The flights themselves were nice. Food was fine. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Only two check in desks. On the line for over an hour. Good thing we got there over two hours early. Computer and belt broke down. Finally got passed security with minutes to spare. Had to run to our gate. We should not have to do this if we arrive very early. If you have an early morning flight make sure you have enough people working to check them in on time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "There was a delay in getting us boarded. My main complaint is the length in the baggage reclaim. It should not have taken as long as it did. I gave low rating for entertainment because there wasn’t any, again it was a short flight. I did not have any of the onboard food."
Pros: "Nothing. It took longer to get from the gate to the runway than the flight itself."
Cons: "When I was about to board the flight after a 23 hour delay, I saw my bag sitting AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STEPS leading to the flight. I asked the flight attendant about it and she assured me the bag would arrive with me. Guess what? A dat later and I STILL don't have my bag! Absolutely ridiculous and will NEVER fly Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Free checked baggage. Calm atmosphere.. low marks for food and entertainment because there was no option to say not applicable. The options in the magazine were reasonable."
Pros: "Crew pleasant"
Pros: "I barely remember the flight as I was traumatized by the flight previously mentioned."
Cons: "Lost luggage!!!!!!!!! See above. The seating was a little better than British Air."
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Pros: "Boarding at rear as well as front"
Cons: "Boarding outside in drizzle. Charging for soft drinks"
Pros: "Never got on as we were 5 minutes late at the bag drop. Attendant telephoned her line manager 40 minutes before take off and refused to take our luggage. She did manage to book us on flights for the following day at a cost of £290. Not a good experience!"
Cons: "Never made the plane."
Pros: "Overall the flight was great but the seating was extremely tight which made it hard to get comfortable. Not sure what type of airplane this was. Our return flight was much roomier."
Pros: "Good food, that’s it!!"
Cons: "Entertainment system is very very poor. There was no tissue paper in the business class toilets on the return flight. The Aer Lingus reos in Orlando were rude and unhelpful. Sat in business class and the seats are very annoying. They adjust using a sensor pad and the slightest touch off it,your seat starts shifting. I’ve had better experiences in economy class with other airlines. I just think it’s laughable that Aer Lingus class themselves as a 4* airline"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable. The seats were too close together and not enough room, but overall the airline is great. Will travel with them again, but will travel business class next time."
Pros: "It was smooth. The flight felt like it went by pretty quickly."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing jumped out at my about this flight. All I remember is that it was not a bad experience."
Cons: "Overall good experience"

Cons: "The flight attendants went right past us never asking if we wanted anything. They served the people to our right and in front of us. Mystifying."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Plane was clean."
Cons: "Crowded and assigned to the back. Charge for a coffee and long bus wait."
Pros: "Why are they flight atendants. So nasty"
Pros: "Pleasant, courteous staff. Average room in economy. Less pressure and bustle at Dublin than bigger airports."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was skipped the first time they came around with drinks. It happened on our way to Europe and the way back. I did not appreciate that."
Pros: "courteous crew, reasonable food and snacks"
Pros: "Not much to say about Air Lingus averall bed experience. Will not book with airline again"
Pros: "I appreciated that Aer Lingus kept track of our vegan food choices for all 4 flights and and every flight flew on schedule. Watching movies without an extra cost was appreciated. Attendants were all very nice."
Pros: "The fact I got hone"
Cons: "Didvto security breach and also an issue with ground staff not bringing a wheel chair for a passenger we were herded round for 3 hours . We were told we could keep our water but then going through security wevwetevtoldcwe couldn't and there was no offer of water. The captain did apologize. I have no issue with aer Lingus staff they did their job. It is Mabchester airport which is bad as they are the ones that were responsible for these two incidents happening"
Pros: "Flight went smoothly, staff were pleasant, seat was fine, entertainment worked well"
Cons: "The overall feel is that the staff are very rigid about their rules. They come down the aisle at their appointed times, but never just check up to see how people are doing. The rule about registering for a vegetarian meal 72 hours advance is ridiculous. there should always be meat-free options for people, not just vegetarians. The flight attendant was kind enough to find some fruit salad for me, out of the crew meals, but she shouldn't have to. in general they don't feel very warm or inviting."
Pros: "You lost the suitcase I needed for the next 2 weeks of my last family vacation in Europe. When I called for an update after 2 days (the promised notification from you was not made) I was told it was found and would be brought by courier to my Airbnb. When I called again, I found out it had arrived in Frankfurt but I'd have to come back to the airport to retrieve it. I had to cancel some plans and inconvenience my family because of your inept handling of my personal property. Other people were in line at the service desk to report their luggage lost. I'm VERY upset. I will avoid Are Lingus and BA in the future. NO LEG ROOM! (Crying, wailing infants the whole 7 hour flight--not your fault, but no sleep for any of us unfortunate passengers)"
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "I was told I had three aisle seats back to back. When we got to our seats, we were one seat in from the aisle. They changed my original flight which had a 1 and 1/2 hrs layover to a flight that had a 20 and 1/2 hour layover and refused to pay for a hotel or meals for my family."
Cons: "Sound was very poor on movies. Difficult to recline seat."
Pros: "The takeoff, flight, and landing were all very smooth. The staff were nice and courteous. The boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "The video screen for my seat locked up and was unusable."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Cons: "Let us board, then flight was delayed. Sat on tarmac 2 hours. Didn't offer any snacks. Dinner options were poor."
Pros: "Overall a good experience"
Cons: "Head phones, Real hard to hear sound, very poor quality"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled, after that I had to find out what I would have to do next! Horrible! Nobody knew what would come next! In Heathrow, the staff in the morning has the worst attitude ever when I was getting my Voucher for breakfast."
Pros: "Leather seats"
Cons: "Our flight had an 1hr delay, lucky to make our connecting flight but our luggage did not make the connecting flight. Waiting for airline to send us our luggage. Did not offer free water or soda for a 3 hr flight. Seats were dirty"
Cons: "Rude check in lady who said I needed to check bag (but didn’t. Loads of space)"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Cons: "No ability to secure seats online despite Aer Lingus stating on line that you can choose seats up to 72 hours prior to the fight. Terrible customer service cramped planes food not great! 72"
Pros: "Good legroom, comfortable seat and great entertainment to keep me occupied for the 10 plus hours."
Cons: "Security at Heathrow -slow!!!"
Pros: "they got me to LA"
Cons: "food and drink not served for 2 h ours / flight delayed 1hr 45 mins, no choice of meal it was a take it or leave it offer, ice lolly served 2 hours after food and horrid snack before landing - on a 10.5 hour flight not good enough, I will consider another airline next time I go. 3 trips a yr"
Cons: "Once again BA lost my luggage from my connecting flight. Twice in a week and a half."
Pros: "Good crew; no more or less better seating than other airlines we have used to the UK."
Pros: "As always no issues at all, I reserved my seats early to get extra leg room which is always great. Fast boarding and a quick flight, having been on a long haul flight a few hours before I needed this to get home."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that we had to pay for a cup of tea. Surely that should be complimentary."
Cons: "My mother needed assistance with the disable wheelchair and was given one but the staff that was meant to wheel her into the flight abandoned her and she almost missed her flight."
Cons: "Inept staff throughout at Heathrow. Sat on the plane for half an hour while they located someone ‘qualified to open the door’."
Pros: "Champagne and hot face clothes to greet us. Perks of Economy premium were lovely"
Cons: "Quality of movies was not A.+"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour from NICE and connection at Manchester was badly handled by BA and missed connection. With no refund or hotel or alternate flight offered. Total failure. Am now stuck. And very upset"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Arrived pm from manchester stayed in hotel at heathrow to fly out following day to Basel at 8am. BA would not check bag all way through. Seems they only do this at Gatwick. Poor service from Heathrow/BA"

Pros: "New plane. Good leg room. Good service overall."
Pros: "The flight was able to board early and arrive early. Very friendly service, enjoyable flight."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for to long...."
Pros: "As a British citizen living in the US, I have always rated the quality of the service BA has given"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Manchester to Heathrow by 30mins. OK understandable. On arrival to Heathrow we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half as apparently there was not enough staff to connect the plane to the gate.The computers to tell us where our connecting flights were down so they could not tell us which gate to go to. When we finally disembarked, I was not allowed to my gate despite it being in the same terminal and having 40 mins to go.I was directed to a BA desk to get another flight. After 15mins waiting here the staff were rude and announced they would be closing. I finally was directed to departures to be told the only option was the same time tomorrow."
Pros: "Funny safety video."
Cons: "Lost baggage. Still waiting on update and location for property. Clerk at lost baggage desk was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "The website would not allow me to enter my passport details as I have PR status. As a result I could not select a seat of choice. it would be much better if PR details could be added when passport info is not accepted. The flight was fine"
Cons: "- bad airplane - cramped - bad food and not even available on all legs"
Pros: "I was traveling by British airways flight BA271 on 13 December 2017. The plane is old but comfortable. I was looking for USB pots I can't find it. Helpful crew and flight comfortable and landing was perfect. British always need to improve. Thanks"

Pros: "Flight on time, good crew."

Pros: "This short flight had no food. I guess that is acceptable"
Cons: "I was hungry but there was nothing to eat"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The wheelchair I had ordered was also on time and handled well. There was a wheelchair waiting for me when I got off the plane and someone helped with our luggage."
Cons: "I paid two pounds for a cup of tea that was not very hot. I couldn't use money and as my credit and debit cards were visa, the machine would not accept them. I think that giving your customers a.free drink would not break the company!"
Pros: "Reasonably efficient and comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS MADE DIFFICULT AT BEST"
Cons: "INITIAL FLIGHT TO LONDON CANCELLED ONLY HOURS BEFORE FLIGHT...MANCHESTER FLIGHT WAS LATE TO HEATHROW WAS LATE,THEREFORE MISSED FLIGHT TO L.A.

Pros: "I liked the demeanor of the crew that I interacted with and I appreciated the updates from the pilot since we were delayed into London and I had a quick connection."

Pros: "nothing the plane got delayed four times with no warning and then got cancelled when we all got lined up at the gate for the plane (we stood in line for 15 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE TOLD US SHIT)"
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane got cancelled after hours of sitting in the airport, I didn't like the lack of communication between British airways staff and (would be) passengers, I didn't like that it would've taken me literally three hours to speak to a representative, and I am going to get a refund. I ended up taking an 80 pound train to London that took two and a half hours, and I expect the airway to pay for that too. This was bullshit and I hate this shirt air line."
Pros: "Service was fine, the plane was full but it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the gate was not announced at the airport n London until 15 min before departure which was irritating. This flight was delayed and my checked in luggage did not make it to my destination. Hope to get it sometime tomorrow (a bit inconvenient but it happens)"
Pros: "The crew were ok, nothing really to comment on bad or good."
Cons: "The boarding area was just a corridor. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. At check in there were not nearly enough staff to handle the volume of customers checking in."

Cons: "No in flight entertainment on cross Atlantic is so 2005!"
Cons: "I was there 10 minutes from my flight because of a lot problems from airline doesnt matter and they supposed to take a flight at 15:30 my flight was delay but we arrived at 15:40 and i was thinking i lost but suddenly i saw that it was missing 10 people more and i was running like hell on it and at the gate they didnt let us to take a bus ... The funny was that the plane departure at 16:20 that was freaking out and Im never gona take that airline ! I always chose Norwegian but i was thinkkng that they have change little bit ° , in Norwegian one time they wait for me 20 minutes 20 minutes ! Ryanair is the most Bad and i feel sad if i m writing for them as well !"

Cons: "The obvious boredom of cabin crew due probably to poor wages and long hours."
Pros: "On time - good crew -"
Cons: "Noisy plane (737 ) and noisy group of passengers on adjacent rows pilot and crew announcements downed out. seat allocation charges are a ripoff - makes the total price unrecognisable to the advertised price"
Pros: "Really disappointed"
Pros: "Airport security was efficient."
Cons: "Every group on plane seemed to have been purposely split up even though there were many empty seats. Difficult to book luggage on the website. They said there were strict size limits on cabin bags, but when we got to the gate they didn’t check any - we had to pay for an extra bag in hold when we could have just used a bigger bag for hand luggage. Everything was difficult. Bag drop didn’t work - we had to queue to to go to the desk 3 times and the lady eventually did it herself. Staff were polite and nice."
Cons: "Boarding in Manchester was a disaster. Scanned boarding passes, let everyone down the stairs to the apron, only for to be told to come all the way back up the strairs again because of a change of aircraft. Had to do the whole pre boarding and boarding process all over again. More interested in selling hot Panninis rather than check if we had a belt for our baby. Even after doing safety checks, they passed us and still didn’t have a belt for our baby. Only when we called them back And asked for a belt did we get one, and all this whilst the aircraft was moving. Waited over 25 minutes for our buggy bag to come out the baggage belt in Dublin."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly, courteous and professional."

Cons: "40 mins late"
Cons: "The heat, insane air con not working"
Pros: "In flight snacks were good. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Getting through security was a stressful nightmare. I had no idea what to put where. Was just given a tray and expected to know. Signs said inhalers needed to be in plastic bag but website said meds were ok but keep handy. Threatening notices said if you get it wrong your bag will be searched and you can be delayed for up to half an hour (the inference being you could miss your flight). Vowed not to fly again although may get over it!"
Pros: "On time and that’s about it"
Cons: "Hot, cramped, slow boarding and ridiculous wait times at the bag drop in. Almost missed our flight despite getting there 2.5 hours before boarding"
Cons: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We boarded on time but ended up 30 minutes late due to the staff running around like headless chickens, seemed very unorganised. Guy making announcements on the plane spoke so fast you couldn’t understand a word. Engine made a terrible buzzing noise for half the flight, so loud you had to shout to hear anyone."
Cons: "I paid for my seats and the ask me to change next to the emergency door, something that i would never choose."
Pros: "Nice and cheap."
Cons: "The window was in the wrong place so I got a bad neck trying to look out."
Cons: "The flight was significantly delayed because of a woman having a panic attack. Other people should not have to wait because one person is afraid of flying."
Cons: "The staff, the crew none could english well enough for anyone to understand them"
Cons: "Delayed a little"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Everything. I’d rather walk than use this company again"
Pros: "Ryan air crew very good"
Cons: "No vegatarian food"
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "Front boarding stairs out of use - conjestion at rear boarding Extras for check-in return journey"
Pros: "We didn't crash and I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight was 90 mins late, we were herded like cattle onto the plane which was filthy with empty sweet wrappers littering the entirecabin, which in turn was full of crying children (whose parents appeared powerless/unwilling to comfort them). While none of this was helped by the poor weather creating epic turbulence and a near-miss with another aeroplane, I did take a flight the following day with EuroWings in identical weather which was far better controlled with less nausea-inducing turbulence so I do feel I can blame Ryanair for feeling quite sick as we left the plane. If we'd had to go in for a 3rd landing attempt, I'd probably have turned up for my meeting all covered in vomit as they don't even provide sick bags! Ryanair isn't just basic and cheap, they don't even do the basics properly. It's as though they're deliberately trying to make the experience as horrible as possible. Ryanair is dreadful. Never again!"
Pros: "Friendlly cabin crew. Clean environment."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Cons: "leaving later than scheduled"
Pros: "Prompt take off and easy boarding.decent leg room"
Cons: "My husband was very disappointed with the coffee and the chocolate and cranberry cake. Prices very steep too.."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Flight delay and .no air bridge"
Pros: "Everything about it was smooth and easy"
Pros: "The price of the ryanair flights are great, and will probably be the reason I continue to use them"
Cons: "I am not bothered that there was no in flight entertainment, or that everything cost extra, a lot extra, like drinks (2.5Euros for a can of cola). It’s what you’d expect from a trip that only cost £14.99 each way... But, the things that don’t cost anything, the things you’d expect from any big brand weren’t there at all. Zero communication from staff about why the fliight was delayed (until we landed at Frankfurt) Zero personality from the staff. They looked unhappy, or overworked, or bored... Lufthansa, British Airways, AA, etc... all happy staff. Staff weren’t even communicating verbally... they mimed a lot of stuff... The safety breif was disorganised and they had to repeat it as the pilot interrupted... and the pilots announcements were very unclear, due to a lack of pronunciation of the words he was saying. If I was to offer a suggestion as to how this could be fixed, Inwould suggest that it has something to do with poor recruiting, low staff morale, or something similar"
Pros: "Delayed take off , arrived a head of time"
Cons: "Lack of information for delay"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The queuing for boarding and the speed for boarding was bad"
Cons: "= sardines and quite unpleasant"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no baggage tags to put cabin cases in hold and ‘random allocation’ seats actively place people as far away from each other as possible"
Pros: "The staff were friendly, the boarding crew clear and quick."
Cons: "Late take off, shouldn't happen for a regular short haul flight, meant I was too late arriving at my final destination"
Cons: "The landing very bumpy"
Cons: "Needed more self service bag drop off terminals and better instructions on how to use them. Queue to drop off bags was ridiculous."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Boarding was good. Left & arrived on time. Crew very efficient in spite of the problems encountered with passengers."
Cons: "The flight was not so much Ryanair as Liverpoolair. There were hen & possibly stag parties on board who had obviously had a lot to drink , were very noisy including when the safety procedures were being announced & the crew had to constantly deal with passengers who would not obey instructions."
Cons: "Delayed flight without being told before boarding at Paris BVA"
Cons: "Everything, firstly I checked in early as recommended to find that my wife and I were not sat together. It gave me the option to change one of our seats, stating that it would only increase in cost if we select a more expensive seat. It turns out there were more free seats than reserved but to sit next to my wife (without changing hers) it was going to cost £10, no idea why as they hadn't selected her a more expensive seat. Guess what.....the exact same happened when checking in on our return journey, can't wait to board the plane in a couple of days! When arriving at the airport it is clear Ryanair are removing staff to keep cost down with no care for passenger satisfaction, you check your bags in automatically which appears a scam for over weighing your cases and charging you without having to speak to you. It coat us £10 for being over a kilo, we didn't believe we were but paid it as we thought we had no choice because no staff were close by. A couple beside us were supposedly 3 kilos over and believed this to be incorrect, they kicked off enough of a fuss to be able to go check in face to face and not pay a single penny, doesn't quite seem fair? The final nail in the coffin was the fact that at 8.45 (our supposed departure time) we were stuck in a huge queue watching people get off the plane we were due to board. No delays or hold ups had been announced yet we should have been boarding at 8.15 and told to go to our gate as normal for this time. No plain in sight and when it arrives we can't go straight on as people are getting off it! All in all Ryanair have been awful so far and I am dreading our flight home!"
Pros: "Travel with you again and again"
Cons: "I am satisfied"
Pros: "Row 1 seating"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "Some crew nice"
