Airline reviews

Cons: "Significant delays"

Cons: "Hi, Pliz sort out the menu,the food was rubbish."

Pros: "It was great."

Pros: "Quick and Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Flight was wonderful, landing a little rough"

Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."

Cons: "Unbelievable waste of time and gross inefficient experience trying to get assistance service for a wheelchair abominable delays wrong numbers and general disconnection between ground services & personnel. No problem in New York with Delta no problem in Barcelona but London was a sad performance."

Pros: "Things were pretty smooth."
Cons: "Could have done without the flight delay."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled."

Pros: "loved the interactive flight information, movies, and the food and crew were great"

Cons: "Getting through customs in UK and getting luggage tags to Dublin was a nightmare. Took over 2 hours, went through 4 lines to get luggage tags and given misinformation. Poorest travel experience in 40 years of traveling. Brits need to learn how to expedite processing."

Pros: "Not enough information"
Cons: "The flight times went explained properly very missleading"

Cons: "Finding out that I had to pay more for my bag."

Pros: "Kind and caring staff"

Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins"

Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Food and entertainment are not applicable for this flight as it is too short to need this anyway"

Cons: "Late, no food or drink, confusion at checkin"

Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"

Pros: "A bit late getting started but very nice after that."
Cons: "Must you charge for tea?"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "That I missed the flight because of Iberia airlines"

Pros: "Boarding clerk was excellent. He was very helpful"

Pros: "Flights were on time"

Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and staff wasn't actively being helpful with information. Got absolutely nothing to drink/eat on the plane-not even a glass of water! The flight crew was just ok, no one "stood out" as good or excellent. Again, nothing about this flight made me want to definitely fly British Airways again."

Pros: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"

Cons: "Please include a complimentary tea and/or snack."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "It would be nice if someone cared about something. It didn't seem like anyone liked their job or cared about the passengers. All seemed like corporate greed. I have flown over 40,000 miles this year. This was the most unsatisfactory flight. Come on guys, create a good environment for a win win situation. Happy passengers make more money for the corporation in the end."

Pros: "Did not like that I had to buy a coke. Like common really?"

Pros: "I liked the professionalism of the cede and the cleanliness of the cabin"
Cons: "I was a little frustrated with the delayed start"

Pros: "They got us there."
Cons: "We flew in from San Francisco to London on full-price Business Class tickets. Stupidly, I bought Coach tickets separately for the short leg to Dublin. British Air would not check two bags all the way to Dublin. For one of the bags, we did the measurements, and joined all the other people who haul extra luggage onto the plane for carry-on. For the other bag, sixty-five Pounds Sterling (about eighty-five bucks) for the other bag for a one hour flight. Wow! That put a big damper on the whole flight experience."

Pros: "I really liked how neat & professional the crew were dressed. The plane was new & the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that beverages (like water, juice, coffee) weren't complimentary. All the flights I've been on in the U.S. offer those for free, along with a small snack."

Pros: "No complaints about the flight. It was so short that we didn't even have time to get a drink or snack. Quite a bit of turbulence but I think that might be typical."
Cons: "Turbulence."

Cons: "Gate not given until last minute. The most cramped plane I have ever been on and I’m petite. No complimentary anything."

Cons: "Horrible plane. Sounded like it was on its last legs."

Pros: "Short flight, slept all the way!"
Cons: "Did not eat and no entertainment on this short flight so food and entertainment not applicable."

Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Food options were bad"

Pros: "My flight was changed at airport"
Cons: "Barely made flight-- no help offered"

Pros: "The staff onboard the flight was friendly."
Cons: "There was a last minute gate change that was not announced until boarding was closing, so I had to race across to the other side of the airport to catch the plane. There was no food/drinks provided on the flight."

Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"

Pros: "They tried to help me in person by making a phone call to the security gate."
Cons: "Despite the call to security (I guess it was to the security gate? Not sure) it seemed standard the way they spoke, not as if anyone seemed empathetic to my situation as I am a graduate student and was in dire need of returning to Dublin, Ireland for work the following morning. I have had a different experience with different British Airways representatives. The customer service on the phone seemed good, but in person, it just felt like robots following policy unfortunately. I spent $150 for a roundtrip flight and could not use my "Return" portion of my ticket. I arrived to the security gate and I could not be let in. My flight was even delayed which should have allowed me time to scan through security but it did not. My phone is temporarily unavailable as it is in the shop for repair, while I navigate a foreign country without the use of maps or access to email so easily. I checked my email at a random hotel in London for 1.5 hours, and 30 mins after I left, apparently an email was sent by BA to me, alerting me that I could check-in my luggage, instead of having to take it on-board as carry-on. All these details would have been nice to know a little more ahead of time. I wish I could be refunded for my flight, as that was the last flight of the evening, and I ended up having to go to Air Lingus to pay nearly 300 pounds to get on their last flight back to Dublin. As a graduate student, working on my thesis and fulfilling a job here in Ireland as the final leg of my Master's degree, any money saved is a help. Forfeiting half my ticket, and purchasing a new one twice the price of my original was not something I was expecting. I was an emotional wreck getting on-board my other airline's flight. Just not a positive experience that resonated with me overall :( I wish I had more positive insight to share, especially on social media or Yelp about my experience to London and back with BA. Plane was small, and complimentary drinks were not served as every flight I have ever been on in 30 years, and that is several several dozen, have ALWAYS given at least a drink, even if they didn't have peanuts/pretzels. Pretty disappointing.."

Pros: "Quick and easy!"

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plane didn't take off for a long time after boarding."

Cons: "The service was terrible and staff was unpleasant"

Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Cons: "There was no entertainment for that flight."

Pros: "I was exhausted and so was my flight buddy. The staff was helpful and quietc and got us on board and to our destination without us having to think which was great."

Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"

Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"

Pros: "I wasn't allowed to fly as the Scottish government said non essential travel wasn't allowed and I wasn't allowed the opportunity to get a voucher for my flight"
Cons: "Seeing as I wasn't allowed to fly l could have been offered a voucher or someone at Ryanair help could have answered my question about my flight"

Pros: "Very quick flight"

Cons: "Travelers need to be informed better about Ryanair's baggage restrictions."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cambiaron la puerta de salida al otro lado del aeropuerto e "iniciaron" el abordaje tan rápido, que los pasajeros no habíamos llegado, luego nos hicieron esperar una hora de pie en la fila, un completo desorden y falta de organización"

Pros: "Airport"
Cons: "Delays and missed bus"

Pros: "that it wasn't a long flight"
Cons: "the crew weren't very friendly, from checking in to landing. too stressed out I think. I wasn't made to feel like I wanted to have a return booking. Also there was pressure to add extras that I didn't want. I resisted but when I've paid for something I don't expect to be coerced into paying more for something I didn't need. For example seat selection."

Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "I paid for extra legroom in row 2?There isn't any and to radd insult to injury the person next to me had been allocated his seat without paying any more than the basic fare.I spent most of the flight in a vacant standard seat which gave me more leg room than than that which I had paid for.It was a total ripoff."

Cons: "inconvenient"

Pros: "Quick easy and cheap"

Cons: "I arrive 2 hours before flight only to be told I must print out my boarding pass BEFORE I get to airport ! I was charge 55 English pounds for me and for my wife 110 pounds, ! ? what a surprise, I do not like this at all. angry bitter pissed off"

Cons: "Not good communication regarding delays-except from the pilot after we were waiting too long."

Cons: "There’s nowhere to put anything. Usually there’s a pouch to put your stuff in. That would be helpful."

Pros: "Nothing to like, the flight was delayed over 5 hours."
Cons: "No communication as to what our options were, stuck at the airport for 7+ hours while on holiday. Absolutely horrendous. Then finally after all this time, seats don't move a centimeter and they are extremely tight with minimal spacing between rows."

Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"

Pros: "Straight forward flight"
Cons: "Having to pay for my family to sit together, this could have been offered with the automatic seating allocation, there were lots of 4 seats together . It seems that you are intentionally separated so that you pay to change."

Pros: "Can’t complain about £14 flights"

Cons: "Screwed up airport - if you're just flying through, Dublin is a MAJOR hassle. Had to leave the airport and go through security once again to connect."

Pros: "The employee were very nice."
Cons: "The plane was late getting off the ground, no where to put our bags"

Cons: "Ryanair's new random allocation for the seats is a joke. They are trying to make the most money off their passengers. I've flown with them for the past 5+ years and this is the first time I've encountered this nonsense."

Cons: "Small seats"

Cons: "3hr delayed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "We had to carry our bags up and down several flights of stairs. Not very friendly to disabled or elderly folks."

Cons: "Delayed a bit."

Pros: "Ease of use"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"

Cons: "took forever, endless queues, confusion, more queues. Plane looked dumb inside. Constant up-charges. The whole experience felt bush-league and classless."

Pros: "no redeeming quality"
Cons: "the accommodations, seats, personnel, ticketing, take off, landing, lack of courtesy, lack of amenity, lack of charm, lack of class, lack of professionalism"

Pros: "Ease of booking, checking in and boarding."
Cons: "Nothing on this trip."

Cons: "Late. No announcements. Tight seating."

Pros: "No problems"

Cons: "Rude representatives and terrible organization."

Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "Cheap air fare"
Cons: "Not even water to drink on plane"

Pros: "Lovely new plane lots of room"
Cons: "Bumpy landing"

Cons: "The announcements over the PA system are garbled. I challenge you to sit in the body of the Plane and compare the diction on the Security announcement to that of Pilots/Cabin Crew This is particularly relevant when the Pilot recommends passengers to keep their belts fastened during flights. Cabin Crew fail on repetitive announcements -such as food service. It is almost like a race to see can they beat a time set by a previous Crew member on the flight out!!"

Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"

Pros: "Price and did not crash"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Sardine seating. Very poor "breakfast". Constant selling of deals"

Pros: "The food was decent and there was certainly enough"
Cons: "The make flight attendant physically pushed me down the isle and told me to move because he was frantic about getting trash picked up. So so rude"

Pros: "Quickness"
Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Website hard to use"

Pros: "Nothing. Do not fly. They are horrible and have horrible service."
Cons: "When we got up to the register we had to fork up over $80 for bags that could have even been carry-on's. While booking there was nothing stated about these charges. If this was going to be a charge it should have been made clear. Very unimpressed and displeased with the service from Ryanair."

Pros: "Ticket Price!"
Cons: "Luggage fee was as much as the ticket!"

Cons: "We followed all carryon size and weight guidelines and passenger carried on bags much larger and heavier than ours. Why did we bother?"

Pros: "Got in extra feet room row!"
Cons: "Too cool, and forgot my jacket!"

Cons: "Delay is annoying!"

Cons: "Problems with securing printed boarding passes (non EU) as could not print them ourselves at motel. Finally able to get them without charge after protest. Problem paying for checked bag online (did not go thru) so had to pay higher fee at airport. All this caused delay and rush to not miss flight. Not familiar with Ryan Air M.O. Not informed till 2 days before flight of online check in requirements. Not told could check in 30 days ahead-so could not print passes at home in US before travel. Did not know would have to enter and exit plane via stairs with large carry-on. Ryan Air should be more up front about extra charges incurred if you don't follow their protocol-esp. for first time users. Now know and will not fly with them again. Ended up costing as much or more than flying Aer Lingus Bristol to Dublin would have."

Cons: "Late in both directions, dead light in WC, seats cramped too close together so that you couldn't properly stretch legs"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My jacket was stolen on board"

Pros: "Bad!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Do you have a hour!!!!!!!!"
