1 hour late each time

Overall it was all good and Swiss Air is a great company —however check in time in MIami was 1 hour and 45 minutes. This was very frustrating

Cons: "Rude ground staff at Athens airport, unable to check in online prior to flight, had to wait in line for over an hour for a connecting flight and run to the gate to then be told I was on standby for my next connecting flight. Poor customer service, no headphones given even though all seats have tv screens - such a small thing can make a difference to overall experience eg providing headphones. The check in and boarding forbthis flight was an absolute joke. Two men were about to have a fight due to how irritated everyone was for standing in line for so long. No need whatsoever. Meanwhile 3 staff sat at the ticketing desk and just watched the line grow! When I asked for assistance they brushed me off as if I were a flea! Athens Swiss airlines ground staff are up there with the worst customer service I’ve seen."
Cons: "70’ late on a 45’ flight"
Cons: "The seat bottom was very uncomfortable and made my bum sore the rest of the day."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 12 hour flight, but we could all see the full signal WiFi for the crew, aptly named. LXCrew. Awful to see them using WiFi when we are unable."
Cons: "This flight was poorly advertised as Economy Light. I had to pay $500 in baggage fees to being one checked ski bag round trip - more than the cost of my entire fare!"
Pros: "The food was great. The service is excellent. Swiss Air gets an A+."
Pros: "Service and food were good considering it was "plane food". No delay whatsoever."
Cons: "Black box under the front seat. No room for legs. Seat blocked in lower position, impossible to make it stay in upper position. Entertainment wasn't working good: extremely laggy when it was working ... Seats are way too short. You got the neck support into the upper back ... And I am only 1.80m. Overall, I am done with Swiss until they upgrade their planes. Wifi was 99usd for 220 mo ... what a joke. A 20+yo plane for a such reputated company. There was still the ashtrays inside the restrooms."
Pros: "Spacious Aircraft, nice business class, friendly crew, punctual flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Crew were good, apart from forgetting at breakfast time that I had ordered gluten free food. Food was OK but not memorable."
Cons: "Business class is not as roomy as other airlines. My partner had to climb over me to reach the aisle, there is very little storage space and seat size is quite small. Choice of movies is limited."
Pros: "Good and fast service"
Cons: "The size you allow for the hand baggage is insufficient"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Seats comfortable. Slept most of flight."
Cons: "Didn’t bother me because sleeping but much of flight apparently the entertainment system had issues"
Pros: "Abosolutely nothing i paid extra for the good reviews i found online but the service was so poor i am disapoi ted i paid that nuch extra for a terrible experience"
Cons: "Entertainment didnt work for the entire trajectory I requested assistance and was ignored every time I requested a vegan meal and was not provided one Boarding was long and disorganized Bathrooms were so dirty, we had not taken off and the barthrooms smelled terrible"
Cons: "It was hard to figure out how to request a special meal"
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."
Cons: "Roughest flight ever, many people got sick, too much turbulence to fly"
Pros: "Staff walked around with water quite a bit, gave my kids a special kids meal"
Cons: "A little tight in economy and i am short"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Service, entertainment and food are top notch!"
Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly service, superfast check-in"
Cons: "The entertainment remote was not working and the crew member could not fix it. Indicated that his happens and that the planes are supposed to be refurbished within the year. The screen was the most user-unfriendly I have seen in a long time"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment offered and the seats were cramped."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly. Was pleased that everything went smoothly."
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything was very good except the TV screen on my wife's seat malfunctioned after the first movie watched. The crew "tried" to fix it but nothing happened, not blaming them specifically but I don't think they were to concerned about one customer with no entertainment. After a long while it started working again. It was a long flight to not have entertainment the whole duration of the flight. Besides this little problem it was a very good flight. Crew very professional and nice."
Pros: "The Swiss personnel both on board and off (check in) were courteous, efficient and very nice."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was put on standby because of overbooking. My luggage did not arrive with me. Next day, getting luggage was a hassle, not convenient."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive. The food was surprisingly good. I would definitely try to fly SWISS again."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I missed the vents above the seats."
Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"
Pros: "Courteous staff,"
Pros: "everything, the crew, the journey, the food and the entertainment as well"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "Super nice and skilled staff, everyone was great to interact with."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Checki-in via mobile app was easy, as was baggage dropoff at the airport. Both airport staff and flight crew were efficient, courteous, and friendly. Excellent service, good good, nice selection of entertainment."
Pros: "Plane was held for us for the late arrival of a previous flight. Extremely professional crew."
Cons: "Entertainment system fairly dated."
Pros: "Very nice flight back home! Comfortable seats (Great receline - almost too much for your neighbors), great food, lots of entertainment, etc. Flight attendants were nice. They left snacks, water, juice and soda out in the galley if you were in the mood for something. Bathrooms were clean. Overall I rate this flight a 9/10."
Cons: "The seat reclining in front of you made it very hard to get out of your seat and into the aisle without major clumsiness and disturbing your fellow passengers. Also the headphone jack has the old fashioned 2 prong. So you can't use your own headphones without an adapter if you only want to listen out of one ear the whole time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful because I needed assistance due to back injury."
Cons: "Food was not very good."
Pros: "Got upgraded to business class and had the best flight of my life!"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. Great food"
Cons: "The handle of the pull-stick that slides into the suitcase was broken off with the pull-stick sticking out of the TUMI suitcase. Used a pen point to release it and get it back into the suitcase. No handle so it was impossible to drag the suitcase. The ground personnel representing Swiss Air at the Boston Baggage carousel was a novice, had never filled out a baggage claim form before. Told me they would phone me. I am a bit skeptical about this claim. Not sure if it was Swiss Air of the local ground personnel who damaged the suitcase."
Pros: "Crew was very kind and accommodating."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat online due to Swiss system issues and when I called, customer service was completely unhelpful despite the 25 minutes I had to wait for someone to answer."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Small jet for transatlantic didn't allow for being able to walk, stretch and move about much during such a long flight, unlike larger airbus planes or larger Boeing planes. Why do airlines hire chefs then serve lousy food!? First meal was so so while wake up meal was really bad. Was so disappointed in Swiss Air so will not fly with them again. Great service doesn't make up for the noted disappointments. Spending a $2-3 more on food would have helped, but placing us in a long flight in such a small airbus plane just won't do!"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and trying their best."
Cons: "The boarding process was quite bad. Apparently their computer system was not working. Waiting, delays. Also, although it was absolutely not necessary they took our carry-on-s with the check-in luggage. Disappointed. First time with Swiss and I though Swiss in general are more organized. But no."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and presentable. The cabin was very nice. The entertainment screens were nicer than any other airlines I have seen. It was a short flight, but so they didn't serve food, but they offered water and chocolate, which was a nice touch."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed disorganized. If someone leans their chair back, they are sitting right in your lap."

Better options for food, friendlier staff and better inflight entertainment

Sitting on the plane waiting for take off for 30 minutes and not AC plus rude flight attendants.

They could have used some air conditioning it was ridiculously hot

improve services on board

Pros: "missed the next flight due to problems at Frankfurt Airport. No stairs or busses available"
Pros: "nothing really. There were so many rude staff members at this airline. I saw people get yelled at by staff members. They were just trying to get information on the late flights and missed connections. It happened repeatedly. this company has the worst customer service I have seen probably ever."
Cons: "They need to care about their customers and care for their customers better. They have a lot to be ashamed of."
Pros: "Nice to have room to spread out. Amazing that a staffer in Greece managed to quickly rebook us on a different flight due to delays and the fear of missing our connection! The best!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. The movie system or user interface was clunky - nice variety of films but hard to find them and choose them."
Pros: "Drinks served on flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing, from the crew attitude to the food to the entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy this flight as everything seemed very unwelcoming here"
Cons: "Take care of passengers for drinks and others. Treat passengers with other languages nicely rather than in condescending way. I saw air hostess laughing among themselves and being little short with passengers who couldn’t communicate. The boarding process was very chaotic with no groups."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was just ok."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the food was surprisingly delicious and despite weather conditions being rough and causing significant turbulence the pilot handled it well and landed so smoothly I could honestly barely tell we had landed!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty comfortable for economy seats but still could have been a bit more comfortable. The standard leg room could be increased as well as overhead storage"
Cons: "My seats were broken on two flights--could not recline. Maintain the equipment better."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly. The seats were new. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The scrambled eggs for breakfast appeared to be powered eggs, or overcooked eggs. The storage bins for the luggage were very small for the middle seats (aircraft was an Airbus A330-200). After several hours of flying, there was trash in the aisles and on the toilet floor. The toilets were dirty and not cleaned. Finally, the toilets ran out of paper towels and tissues with 3 hours to go in the flight, and they were never refilled. The flight attendants put a roll of toilet paper next the sink to use for your hands."
Pros: "Leg room, comfortable seats, staff great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The 9 hour flight was made so much nicer with and excellent and attentive flight crew. They were always available with a hot towel, drink, meal or a snack. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "45min to 1 hour is barely enough to switch the plane in Frankfurt. Distances between gates are very significant and if you are not running there is a possibility you not going to make your connecting flight. Information how to get to the Z gates are not clear and it really takes a long time with all passport check points and security to pass through."
Pros: "Nice, uneventful, on time flight with adequate food and entertainment. Good seat recline. Good service. Boarding from the back of the plane makes good sense."
Cons: "First time my knees have touched the seat in front of me (I'm 5-10). Not sure how much more airlines can squeeze us in. Good seat recline is great if everyone is reclining, if not you will have someone in your lap. Had to ask person in front of me to not recline during meal. What really bothered me though was paying for a reserved seat and finding out we had been moved to the dreaded back row due to an equipment change. Strongly suggest passenger notification for this move. Was able to re-reserve seats on check in but there were some significant angst when I found out about this mischief."
Pros: "The entertainment, food, and crew were great."
Cons: "I had no problems with this leg of the flight."
Pros: "Very professional!"
Cons: "The movie collection could be better."
Pros: "Good Service , and overall friendly crew"
Cons: "Automaten Check in / boarding Cards, is hard for some people and took really long . Extra help on these machines would be good"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Good snacks"
Pros: "The service couldn’t have been better! Constant supply of water, the food was good, and they have champagne in economy - always a win for me!"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Good plane"
Cons: "No entertainment on board of the aircraft"
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Pros: "Even though we boarded the plan via a bus, I appreciated that business class was given priority boarding the bus."
Cons: "The waiting area was a bit spartan, but quite acceptable."
Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight with Lufthansa. My gluten free meals were very good and the service was excellent!"
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to reserve seats ahead of time without charge"
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to premium economy"
Pros: "It was my first time using the upper deck of a 747. The setup is pretty decent with lay flat beds (I still couldn't sleep though). The attendants were all very nice. The food was much better than on my inbound flight on United..."
Cons: "The entire experience was ruined by one hour spent on the tarmac in Seattle, waiting for a gate to become available... This is lame not only for the passengers but also for the people waiting to pick them up. The selection on the entertainment system was limited."
Pros: "This was still a Lufthansa flight. Meaning there was a lot of leg room, the food was nice and the staff was great."
Cons: "The only thing i did not like is that for such a long flight (5 hours), also being an international flight, i was expecting an entertainment center, but there was none."
Pros: "Friendly service and good food."
Cons: "Long flight"
Cons: "The boarding was very disorganized."
Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."
Pros: "Initially things were smooth. Boarding was on time."
Cons: "But then they deboarded the plane and everything went south fast. They didn't tell us what was happening or where to go or what to do. Instead we were directed to different service centers. We were told conflicting things. Sometimes they told us to exit the airport through passport control, but without any information on what to do next. They reopened the terminal but then redirected us to a service center. That center was overloaded and we ended up waiting in line for service/information for the entire day. Once I was near the service center they dissipated the line. They told us there was another service center in a different part of the airport and that this one we have waited for was closing. We went there and it was also closed instead they had beds without blankets or pillows limit the halls. Alia we were in line for hours before they offered any water or food. Food was really late. Information was the problem here. We were not told what we should do except to check with the service center. Eventually a few of us tried to get through passport control and check the service center out front. This worked much better. I was able to get a hotel and a standby ticket. That flight went much better but getting that far was a mess."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."
Pros: "The agent at the counter was very very helpful and accommodated us to an earlier flight. That saved us lot of time."
Pros: "The whole flight went in time and all was well..."
Cons: "But when we got to Barcelona we had to wait 40 mins to get off the plane and another 2 hours to get our luggage. The baggage handlers went on strike."
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Got the seat that I paid extra for ,,,"
Pros: "female attendants were nice boarding was efficient Munich airport was unbelievably clean and well organized movie selection was good"
Cons: "the male flight attendant on the Munich to Washington DC leg was very short with people food was just average definitely not enough leg room in coach"
Pros: "Crew was excellent!! Very attentive to all passengers, offered to assist passengers to move to less crowded rows on the flight"
Cons: "Gluten free meal - it was very spicy and loaded with carbs (rice and potatoes). Gluten free snack before landing - the bread crumbled, unable to eat as a sandwich and no utensils provided. Please review the gluten free meals and snacks - I am celiac so I must eat gluten free. Thank you!"
Pros: "Much better than lax to frankfurt"
Cons: "Too much walking from one gate to another. Seemed as if I walked the whole airport."
Pros: "Good plane, good crew, very nice having a row to myself. Loved the pretzel roll sandwich - good flavor, good texture, just the right amount of warmth!"
Cons: "Was spoiled by the 787 entertainment system on the outbound trip to London - this one was sluggish and dim. The curry chicken meal was not terrible, but not great."
Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "Movies didnt have subtitles. Any volume issues or wanting to watch a movie not in your native language and you are out of luck... For 10 hrs."

Nothing

The jet2 check in at Faro was so well done compared with other airlines. They stagger all the package holiday buses so it’s not overwhelmed. Well done Jet2

The seating leg room was good! The flight was delayed by 1.5hrs. I pre ordered a meal on board, but was the last to receive my food. So poor on board service! Jet2 managed to leave my luggage behind at Manchester airport, I’m still waiting news of its whereabouts!

Boarding lanes should have been better organised..as it always becomes a free for all..

The flight was first class the experience on landing in Edinburgh was not Crammed into a bus and held on tarmac for 15 minutes followed by just under 1 hour to clear passport control Only one flight at that time Disappointing!!!

Smooth process, great in flight crew you wouldn’t want to travel more than 3.5 hrs with them as the seats are slightly hard

Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seats are awfully tight and no padding The plane was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were on it because of some air conditioning issue"
Pros: "Simplicity"
Cons: "Everything is made easy...."
Pros: "Simple checking with baggage etc"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane everyone had hoods up and coats on."
Cons: "Seats don't recline"
Pros: "Crew were good, no issues. Flight was prompt and easy."
Cons: "A few too many announcements and promotions for buying stuff on board."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"
Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "People had to go a long way to find space to stow their bags. No one was telling people to put small bags under their seats."
Cons: "Food options are very bad & there are no TVs on the plane but otherwise this was an excellent flight & a seamless holiday transfer from the moment that we arrived."
Pros: "Regular updates during flight. Food!"
Pros: "Nice plane and well trained crew, will fly them again, without any doubt"
Pros: "Boarding well organised, cfrew friendly."
Cons: "Announcements too frequent and very loud."
Cons: "Missed the need to add luggage to both inward and outbound journey, that got excessively charged on the way back. Have never had to select luggage allowances both ways, clearly we want to bring our luggage back! + why should it cost twice as much to add to the hold when paying at the airport, rip of"
Pros: "Amazing customer service from the moment we arrived at the airport, throughout the checkin process and on the plane. Really extraordinarily amazing given that it was the Saturday of half-term. Cannot praise highly enough."
Cons: "I canot think of any single fault at all."
Pros: "Great boarding decent legroom"
Cons: "Good all round - no entertainment but it’s short haul so expected"
Pros: "Comfortable, quick flight to prague, even landed early! The cabin crew were efficent and the cabin was kept clean and tidy. Legroom is always better on Jet2"
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Jet2 have good planes, excellent legroom and great staff."
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly service on the plane."
Cons: "Connection issues from previous flight. Connecting ground staff didn't seem to have their game together. In all fairness, it was after midnight and I don't think it was connected to the Aegean airline. More like airport security."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Late at the airport but they managed to get us all through and boarded on time"
Cons: "Too many steps especially at Birmingham"
Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to report. Very efficient"
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Clean. Everything worked. Competent and friendly crew. Great price. Yes, we definitely would fly with Jet2 again."
Cons: "Really packed us in. Crew kept on offering items for sale. But, it is a deeep discount carrier so we were not surprised."
Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Short flight good check in, comfortable seat. Nice staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were polite, better than on the outward flight from Paris CDG to Leeds, but seemed more interested in chatting to each other than to reassure passengers about the long delays. Once underway, the flight progressed well."
Cons: "When a 30 minute delay was announced (13.45 instead of 13.15), I was fairly philosophical. However, we didn't board until 13.45. Once settled in our seats, another 25 minutes went by when the plane did not move. No information's given. I asked a member of the cabin crew what was going on who said she didn't know anything. I then heard her ask (presumably the captain) on the intercom if he could make an announcement as 'passengers were enquiring' We were then informed that we would have a further delay of up to an hour. We eventually took off at 16.00, over two hours after scheduled time. Thank goodness, I had left plenty of time for my connecting train. I was equally unimpressed for different reasons with Jet2.com on the outward flight on 12 July. I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "The convenience of the route"
Cons: "The thumping 'music' as we boarded, the over-jolly announcements which treated the passengers as if they were all mentally deficient or poorly educated. The information they conveyed was clear and comprehensive and obviously, safety instructions are crucial, but the format and tone of delivery were so patronising I thought they were a parody. They also assumed everybody was coming back to the UK after their holiday - the flight had a good proportion of French passengers and some of us don't live in the UK. Make the announcements more neutral. I fly with a lot of no-frills lines, especially Ryanair and EasyJet as well as the larger carriers such as Air France, BA, SAS and Air Canada, but I have never come across such grating and irritating announcements. I will think twice before booking another flight with them rather than endure this again."
Pros: "I actually found the seat quite comfortable, compared with other low-cost airlines. I was glad that i could take my hand luggage onto the plane, allowing me to exit without having to wait at the carousel. There was plenty of space in the overhead locker. I liked the sense of humour in the announcements - it proves that even serious things can be said in a pleasant manner"
Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."
Pros: "excellent legroom"
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Although as always we seemed to end up in the crèche part of the cabin."
Cons: "Having to switch off all electronics while the seatbelt sign is on believe bags in the last century. Even a kindle! This is just ridiculous."
Pros: "Short check in, good leg room in seats"
Cons: "Overpriced food"
Pros: "Delayed boarding, taking off, landing, and then getting from plane to gate"
Pros: "What a breath of fresh air. Simple no frills service but very friendly attentive staff. Can't quite say why but 100 times more pleasant than a Ryanair flight!"
Pros: "Everything, staff the whole package faultless, well done !!!"
Pros: "First time iv used jet2 and I will again"
Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"
Cons: "Delay due to incompetence at Venice airport"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly"
Cons: "The constant talking on the overhead trying to sell something (food, donations, duty free) and then the stewardess didn't make it to the back to hand over landing cards."
Pros: "Convenient flights. Friendly staff. Excellent price."
Cons: "Older aircraft means electronic devices can only be used while cruising. Long queue for bag drop due to many flights leaving at once."
Pros: "Staff and process"
Cons: "No entertainment, pre booking hot food"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Was told five minutes before landing that we would be circling the airport for 20 mins due to runway closure which turned into half an hour. When we landed we had to wait a further 10 - 15 minutes before we could taxi to the airport, so nearly an hour late but no delay."
Pros: "Fast, efficient boarding. Helpful cabin staff."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats that don't recline and seat back pockets have no "give" to fit your personal items."

Terrible communication from Aer Lingus. The flight was delayed but nothing was communicated to passengers.

This summer is full of horror stories of airline understaffing, and I was concerned about flying Aer Lingus for the first time after reading mixed reviews. My concern grew when I had a very hard time reaching someone in customer service to answer an important question: my young daughter's passport had just less than 6 months validity, so more than the 3 months required (I checked) with both US and EU border regulations - would she be allowed to travel despite the Aer Lingus 6 months policy I had read online? The answer ultimately was yes, but I maintained a niggling trepidation that we would be turned away at EWR (as I had read had happened to other travelers). HOWEVER, this did not happen, AND our check-in and flights went smoothly, including a tight connection in Dublin. We had packed carry-on which, because the flight was full we had to check, but our luggage was not lost. :) On the return her car seat did not arrive (which was not a problem for us) and it got delivered the next day. The flight attendants were extremely nice and professional, even when clearly working in a generally challenging situation. The food was good. The best part? Dublin has its own US customs so we went through that during our layover so landing at JFK was so much more pleasant than the usual harrowing arrival in the US (even for US citizens with little luggage and nothing to declare.) I will definitely fly Aer Lingus again.

The seats were too close together and my tv was not working!

The airplane selected for this 8-hour journey was way too small! It was uncomfortable, cramped, and not to the usual standards. A long-haul transatlantic flight needs to have more space and adequate overhead locker space for carry-on baggage. We had to check our small carry-on and they were the very last bags to arrive at baggage claim, 40 minutes after arrival. On two occasions I counted 17+ passengers lining up in the aisle waiting to access the bathroom, as there were only 2 lavatories in the economy area. Staff were clearly frustrated and the crew had to ask passengers to sit down to avoid blocking the aisle... another point why the plane was too small for that travel duration. Turbulence was frequent, again something that is not as obvious on a larger plane. As an Irish citizen living in the US, I'm so disappointed to see the Aer Lingus standard dropping and will be likely looking for other carriers for my frequent tranatlantic travels.

Pros: "crew was super nice"
Cons: "major delay, no info, boarding process felt like a cluster"
Pros: "Great to go through customs in Dublin so the landing at home is easy."
Cons: "The airline made people unnecessarily nervous by posting a very early boarding time so people thought they had to jump in line in customs when, in fact, we all had the same departure times and all had plenty of time."
Cons: "The flight attendants were just awesome. First time flying with Aer Lingus and I must say they are my favorite airline henceforth"
Pros: "Crew was good. Boarding was good."
Cons: "Seats not that comfy."
Cons: "Check in slow."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, v professional, v pleasant! The meal was hot fresh delicious! Great flight!!!!"
Cons: "They should serve FREE coffee on the connecting flight Dublin to London at 6 am. Ridiculous to make us pay for coffee after a long, international flight."
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: "Friendly and helpful crew. We were served drinks and food. I liked that the flight attendants requested everyone put their seats in the upright position anytime food was served so that the person sitting behind you had space to eat."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable (in all fairness, most airplane seats are uncomfortable!)."
Pros: "Staff were great both to and from our vacation spot. This was my first time flying Aer Lingus and I was more than satisfied with the experience."
Cons: "Seats are always a little cramped when flying coach but that's in the plane design not to do with flight service."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew! Good food and drink"
Cons: "We left an hour late due to "paperwork". Made for a long flight on a long day."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aer Lingus made us miss our flight and has us still waiting for a resolution after 22 hrs. This is the worst airline ever!"
Pros: "On Board Gate Connection info. A great convenience. Also, NO SECURITY check! for connecting flights. Why not at other airport-hubs?"
Cons: "Most of the flight 'COLD WIND DDRAFT'. Had to use 2 blankets. Staff said it will warm up as we cruise higher! Where does that logic come from? Outside temperature plummets as one goes higher!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible- no information and it was late"
Cons: "Flight attendants rude. Often delayed"
Pros: "Check in was great. On board crew was excellent and very attentive. Many offerings of drinks and food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, free for all situation. Signage could have been better at the gate. One of the TV viewers/overhead lights didn’t work for our party. There was a large chatty group of people that were milling around, standing in aisle, talking loudly for much of the flight. I understand that there is only so much the crew could do about that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "When we arrived at Lyon Airport there were no signs or information on departure board on where to check in to get boarding passes. Also had to buy water, soda, coffee, tea and snacks. No tv screens on plane."
Cons: "You can not bring a hot drink on board,but they give you hot drinks on board it doesn't make sense.. The seats are very small on a 9 hrs flight,the arm rest should go up for some space when available..There should be at least a vegetarian option for people who don't eat meat.."
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Pilot failed to inform us why we were sitting on the tarmac for 40 mins before taking off."
Pros: "It landed early"
Cons: "After dinner, seat belt sign was on for the rest of flight. They didn't want anyone to use the bathroom...for over 4 hours. There was really no turbulence. Basically it seemed to be a reason to not provide service and trap people in their seats. You also had to pay for alcohol. Worst international flight I ever had in terms of customer service"
Pros: "Aer lingus took good care of us, and put us up at a hotel."
Cons: "Could not get a replacement flight and had to book with another airline and different route. Hoping the refund process will go smoothly."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Long distance to boarding gate vis bus and walk. Late taking off so late arriving"
Pros: "The flight was very short, but everyone was accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight from LA to Dublin was cancelled day of and the airline put us on another flight. We came to find out that they did not place my fiancee and myself together. We tried talking to the crew but they seemed apathetic and uninterested in helping us. The said the flight was full and everyone checked in but after boarding we found many open seats.. while on the plane I requested help trying to relocate seats so we could sit together and not a single steward would help us. In the end, we finally found seats on our own... Very unhappy throughout the entire journey the quality of service. Never flown with such rude and unaccomadating service personal."
Pros: "The economy seats are more comfortable than average transatlantic flights on other airlines, albeit far from perfect. The meal was nicer too. The crew both onboard and on land was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system is slow and the selection of films to watch could be better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours. They also lost my luggage. Very poor and rude customer service."
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Pros: "Not much paid for prority boarding but we were bussed to the flight in Faro and this made prority boarding nul and voidboarding"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, the seats are very comfortable, the service was very good and the food also, except the soda bread . I do not like soda bread. You got yourself a passenger for the future. It will be a pleasure to fly with you again"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Absolutely freezing on the plane even with a blanket I. Fought from home. My tv stopped working half way through and wasn't fixed with the reboot."
Pros: "Seats comfortable even with my disabilities."
Cons: "Assistance seats all taken by able bodies. No room for disabled. Not enuf staff for volume of disabled rendering a delay to our flight E1 273."
Pros: "Overall very. I was there when the check station was down caused delays. But staff were very helpful."
Cons: "Getting through security check very slow. Not sure what the answer is but need to be looked urgently. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.. P.kehoe..sunnybank Farm.. Portersize.. Grange con.. Co. Kildare"
Cons: "Paying for beverages seemed a bit much."
Pros: "What is there not to like: The crew are courteous and caring, the planes are clean and the price is right!"
Cons: "The check-in in Duesseldorf was subcontracted and staffed by an uninformed agent which led to a lot of confusion and inconvenience in Dublin. Someone like that does not reflect well on Aer Lingus which I definitely recommend otherwise!"
Cons: "Cramped seating. No food or beverage provided without charge."
Pros: "The crew tried to accommodate and offered food to everyone."
Cons: "I have not flown on a plane that old for 20 years. Absolutely no video or electronic facilities and seats that had long lost any cushioning, The decibel level in the plane was deafening.. Will I fly Aer Lingus again.....definitely not!!!!"
Pros: "Much better than the Rome-Dublin leg. A modern plane with entertainment. A boarding process with effective signage and flowing lines. An absolutely top-rate cabin crew. Actually enjoyable food."
Cons: "Really was well done: systems seem to be functioning smoothly and feedback processes are working. One thing I did note was that the waste seemed to be collected without sorting for recycling. Considering you all are on the Emerald (green) Isle, you could take up the mantle of being the "most ecological" airline in the world. It would only take a small amount of messaging."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to Business class that we submitted a bid for -- it was the difference between heaven and the usual too small, too squashed intercontinental experience. The whole experience post-upgrade was top notch, from the service to the food. Thanks, Are Lingus!"
Pros: "Over the past week I had the pleasure of flying Britiish Air and codeshare Aer Lingus. I don't fly international that much, but I found that there was more room than I remember. I don't think how have had such a pleasant, eager staff on both airlines. The food was okay, but still better than I expected. It is tough to serve that many people. I would certainly fly BA again."
Cons: "Not much to say here. I am a critical person but I don't think that the crew could have done better. My only complaint...boo hoo, first world problem, my video screen didn't work very well. If it was tilted just right it would work. The free head phones have really poor quality. I had my own. In the end... not a big issue."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment and no snack I don't believe"
Pros: "Comfortable flat seats. Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal had to be ordered ahead of time."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Aer lingus. Crew were great, food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Although I didn't get my baggage with me and it will be delivered to me in a day, but everything else was great."
Pros: "On time, not overcrowded, straightforward flight."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "On a long flight, it was great having an empty seat between me (window) and the other passenger in my row (aisle), especially given that I paid an extra $55 for my seat.. ( I do need to add, however, that 5-6 hours into the flight, a passenger two rows back became ill which required that the row be vacated so I ended up with a young woman sitting in the middle seat next to me who announced that she was sick -- and looked that way.)"
Cons: "Food was really poor. Other airlines do a much better job! Also, it would have been nice to have had the kind of curved headrest that makes it easier to sleep, especially on a long flight. The short flight from Dublin to Alicante offered this kind of headrest."
Pros: "Nice crew, fairly comfortable seats. Lots of tv and movie choices."
Cons: "Food was not as good as flight in other direction. Limp and close to expiration. Boarding on this airline is always a rush. Flight is announced and advertised as wifi enabled but impossible to connect, despite multiple tries throughout the twelve hour flight."
Pros: "We liked the US pre-clearence process that saved us a bunch of time. The meals were great. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "Drink service needs improvement. They only came around twice and even after several requests we finally had to seek out a steward to get beverages. The earbuds are very poor quality. We took 2 different flights, each with a different style earbud and they both had terrible sound quality. There is a great Entertainment collection of movies and music but the earbud quality made it difficult to actually hear music clearly or even sound for the movies."

Better communication from airline regarding delay(s) or updates on how to get further information.

The experience at the airport was traumatic to say the least, the flight was extremely delayed as a result

Flight was canceled and nobody notified us (business class) until we arrived at the airport. Tap tried to rebook us into economy for next flight but we would have missed out connection anyway. Had to pitch a fit to be rebooked on a different airline in business. Ended up in JFK instead of Newark but at least got home.

Check in was a disaster. The testing rules are ridiculous. They made me wait so long to tell me to get another test that I missed the flight, then they charged me a fee. The staff was rude and uninformed. I will never fly this airline again and will advise others to avoid.

DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE! I wish I would have taken the negative reviews I had read to heart before I had to discover it for myself. To start with, we were charged an extra $100 for our carry-on baggage apparently being overweight. This was not something we were told about prior to flying or we would have packed differently. During our layover in Portugal, we were delayed. Once they started to board, we got on the bus and drove out to the plane. Upon arriving at the plane, there were already two other busses there that had not even offloaded yet since they were apparently still servicing the plane. We had to stand in a crowded bus for about 45 minutes packed in like sardines. So much for social distancing and covid concerns! The plane itself was uncomfortable and the service terrible. I have flown across the Atlantic many many times on other airlines and have always received amazing service. This was not the case with TAP. Other than a small glass of water, we were only served drinks one time. There were no refills or additional service, which for a 9-hour flight is unheard of. I hated every minute of my time with TAP and will never fly with them again even if someone offered me a free ticket.

Pros: "Seats are way more comfortable than other flight companies"
Cons: "Crew could have been more patient"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Pros: "The entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Everything else was terrible. From check-in to boarding to flight."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness of flight."
Cons: "Both flights did not have any general vegetarian options in snack or main courses. There was no option online to submit a meal request and as booking last minute travel and in a foreign country, it was not possible to contact Air Portugal via phone. If the flight offers snack and two meal options, at least one should be vegetarian to accommodate this common population of passengers."
Pros: "Nothing! Horrible!"
Cons: "I had small carry on And there were nowhere to put them. The cabin for the carry one were full and my carry on had to be placed somewhere else, and knowing I had personal information in my bag. Very disappointed"
Pros: "The Tap flight was an hour late causing me to miss my connecting flight with Tap and my car rental. Attendant NO help. Sent me wrong place!!."
Cons: "Better flight attendants who know how to help. Never TAP again!!"
Pros: "On time, very polite."
Pros: "The food and crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "My eyes were closed and the crew passed by while serving food but did not wake me up. As a traveller I been woken up while food was served or food was kept on the seat tray."
Cons: "Overall the flight was good but I dont know why the crew was like that, and the flight seats ain't comfortable and were to close to each other. I legs wasnt comfortable"
Pros: "We really enjoyed TAP Air Portugal and expect to fly with them again. Comfortable seats, pillow, blanket, and MEALS! Good ones with actual silver! USB charging port at every seat, with a good selection of movies. Great airline for a great price!"
Pros: "Mechanical delays leaving London, missed flight connection to New York, now TAP wants to charge me for rescheduling!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent during the flight."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight because our first flight was delayed. Despite getting to the desk when there were still people queuing he refused to let us board. We are now delayed for 30 hours with no money or clothes. TAP staff were horrible- no sympathy or even an apology. Just awful."
Pros: "In time. Plane half full. Perfect."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Plane was 1hr late. The airlines is not very good at updating the time the flight will leave."
Cons: "It was nice to get a snack but the quality was mediocre."
Pros: "The drinks were available."
Cons: "The drinks were expensive."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."
Pros: "Smooth flight Crew extremely nice and helpful Good snack served (not the usual junk food some airlines give and charge for ) punctual"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Flight was late which seems to be a standard with TAP."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Cons: "I was not informed my flight was cancelled until the day of the flight. I was able to get in touch with someone to pay for another flight but the communication was lacking."
Pros: "Space was actually good."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. We had a little child, but no priority for families with children. Flight was delayed over two hours, no explanation, no apologies. Boarding crew was impolite and unhelpful. Then they had to weight all carry-ons! Crazy."
Cons: "Slow delivery of bags in Lisbon"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
Pros: "No issues or service challenges I could think of. Friendly. Helpful."
Cons: "Seats were a bit hard and not a lot of legroom. But. Not unexpected for the section/price. Shorter flight made this bearable. Interior looked dated. Though, it is an A319."
Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."
Pros: "Very smooth"
Pros: "Modern appointed plane with places for technology and charging points"
Cons: "Ground staff insisted carry on bags were checked in and implied this was mandatory and I complied only to discover later that majority were allowed to ignore this. Also plane was late"
Cons: "My flight to Miami was delayed due to weather. I missed my connection to LHR, therefore missed my TAP flight to Portugal. I called TAP (before the flight) and they would not change the flight because I went through a travel site. My $240 ticket was lost, and I had to pay over $900 for a new one. I doubt I will use an internet site again because I will unlikely get a refund and it was impossible to change the ticket. Feel awful!"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, fast and efficient. Crew were friendly and welcoming. Complimentary snacks were welcome and nice."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and well organized."
Pros: "Easy trip from London"
Cons: "Not sure what was in the sandwich."
Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They damaged one of my bags and lost the other one. Bad service, really old planes and seats were to small; mind you I was traveling in business class. Over all a horrible airline"
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "The food was light and good."
Cons: "Not using the tube when deplaining. Summer in Lisbon is very hot ."
Pros: "The checkin staff at LHR were really good and helped me with my visa application. They helped me to not miss my flight. Ten out of ten for them."
Cons: "In flight food was very poor"
Pros: "Aircraft seem well maintained and crews are very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess this time. The lady directing the boarding did not make clear where each group should stand. So The lady had to send most of us back which upset many. TAP should copy Southwest Airlines except self checkin kiosk are horrid no matter which airline uses it."
Pros: "solid flight, efficient"
Cons: "staff kind of moody, not really smiley"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "My special meal request was not provided despite having email confirmation before boarding the flight. Also, my luggage was lost at the transfer of my journey"
