Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. 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: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."

Cons: "The crew was great"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."
Pros: "Even for a 50 minute flight, drinks and sandwich was provided"
Pros: "Crew very efficient Food was reasonably good Good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding at AMS was very disorganized. No row boarding for economy, just all at once Lights stay on during the flight, so difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The staff (ground staff and cabin) were friendly and helpful. Great to see them trying to help and going the extra mile for passengers."
Cons: "The boarding process. It is a crowded space at the gate, and the boarding ends up with long lines getting confused and in the way."
Pros: "The delightful crew members on KLM flights always make the experience the best. From the crew at check desks, to those greeting you as you board and throughout the flight, they are the reason I continue to fly with them. I love how they have bassinets for those traveling with babies. the adventure packs for children and the never ending smiles and treats for the rest of us."
Cons: "This time I was turned away as a Sky Priority Member, and told there are too many categories at boarding and told my Silver Status (after this flight was bumped to Gold). Not sure what has changed in the last 2 weeks."
Pros: "Efficient and practical"
Cons: "Could always use a little more room"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary but I am not going to fly Air Lingus or TAP ever again."
Cons: "the Team Leader at the check in counter was nasty, Her colleague made the mistake of not telling me that I had to wait there for the wheelchair that was going to take me to the plane, so I went to have a light breakfast. Then I waited half an hour on my feet waiting for the wheelchair"
Pros: "The crew did great - especially Rob!"
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Everything else. Utterly confusing answers to questions."
Pros: "Don’t know how to just give a “n/a” response for food and entertainment. It wasn’t applicable because of such a short flight."
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: "No issues at all."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "Friendly and expedient crew."
Cons: "When flying within Europe you need to pay for drinks, including water."
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: "We were at front"
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding line held in confined area on stairs before boarding"
Cons: "My flights were cancelled by Aer lingus and I was rebooked improperly, resulting in my being removed from a plane and having to be rebooked at least three times because of how long it took."
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: "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: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."
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: "Great crew. Great food. Great movie selection."
Cons: "The seats were bad seats. For a such a long flight, we couldn’t recline!! Not fun."
Cons: "For some reason I am not sure of the flight was late taking off. I think the plane may have been delayed before arriving in Dublin."
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: "The boarding system made a lot of sense and was very quick. The captain was very informative and kept us up to date with delays."
Cons: "The cabin was so dry and the attendants didn't come by with water very often, Getting off the plane was horrible. We sat for over an hour while they fixed the door or bridge to the door, or something. We couldn't get off."

Pros: "On time, newish plane. A very short flight so"

Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Fast. Not too much time wasted between connection. Dublin = small airport, it's really comfortable..."
Cons: "Not enough room for my legs Too close to the "babies rows" = difficult to sleep. It's a pity to pay now to change a seat in the same category"
Pros: "The crew was VERY friendly and attentive. They responded quickly to requests and were very pleasant. Everyone was showed attention to details and put customer comfort at the forefront. They allowed people to relocate to seats allowing for more room and comfort once everyone boarded and empty seats were identified. The snacks and meals were tasty and generous. The entertainment options offered something for everyone - great music and movie choices. I would definitely fly Aer Lingus again."

Cons: "Had a delay of nearly 3 h for maintenance issues, then once plane at the gate boarding was further delayed due to a fuel spill on tarmac when fueling the aircraft"
Pros: "They boarded us in a very timely, organized and quick manner. The food was delicious and the flight attendants were awesome."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle seats, the flight attendants missed us for water offers and our tv's seemed stopped having any sound. I believed they overheated. After a couple hours, they cooled down and went on again. It was a very cold flight. I was so thankful for the blanket and that I brought my own also."
Pros: "courteous crew, reasonable food and snacks"
Pros: "Not much to say about Air Lingus averall bed experience. Will not book with airline again"

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.

There was no one to guide me until I was close to the gate and finally after running the entire distance I was told that the flight would not board till 11:30 and depart st 12:30."
Cons: "Awe linfus should provide assistance st gates and throughout the airport. The entire experince could have been made easier with a few words of assistance."

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."
Pros: "Good food and service. In-flight entertainment was decent, and pillows and blankets were provided."
