  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest San Francisco flight deals.
  • If you are booking flights to San Francisco, be sure to look at flights to San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International Airport, both of which are located in the San Francisco area. While most of the larger airlines fly into San Francisco International Airport, some airlines (such as British Airways) also fly from the UK into Oakland International. Other airlines (such as Norwegian) only fly into Oakland, but it is worth having a look to compare the prices.
  • Stressed about flying – look no further than San Francisco International Airport’s ‘Wag Brigade’. This Brigade consists of dogs (and now a pig) – brought in by the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – that wander around the terminals with their handlers to bring calm and happiness to nervous travellers. The animals, selected specifically for their temperament and suitability for airports, wear vests with the words “Pet Me!” written on them so you know who they are.
  • If you have a layover for four hours or more after your flight to San Francisco, take advantage of the time to venture into San Francisco and the Peninsula Bay area. This can be done easily on public transport – catching the BART train from the airport to, for example, Montgomery Street Station, will take you to Chinatown, the historic heart of San Francisco and Northbeach which, with its Italian influence, has a mixture of jazz clubs, galleries, restaurants and gelato shops. The trip will take you 30 minutes one way and tickets can be purchased at the station.
  • Fancy pampering yourself while you wait for your next flight, XpresSpa services, which exist at all terminals, are the perfect places to go. These spas offer treatments such as manicures, pedicures, massages and facials – a perfect way to treat yourself in between flights or before you head into the city.
  • For families travelling with kids there are a range of activities to keep them happy while in between flights. There are play areas in T2 and T3 or you can visit the Aviation Museum and Library which is free of charge and contains exhibitions about the history of air transport and the development of commercial flights. For children (and adults) who love aviation – this is a good place to spend some time.

Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned.

Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"

Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"

Cons: "need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights."

Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."

Cons: "Crew helping everyone be more courteous to people sleeping. Group of guys being loud in the back of the plane while I was trying to sleep"

Cons: "Lack of business class seats and no premium economy seats on this flight"

Cons: "No flight"

Pros: "I thought the airline amenities were excellent and it was a seamless process getting on the flight. The flight attendants were very warm and accommodating. I felt immediately welcome as soon as I got on the flight. I liked that they were playful with my son and engaged him."
Cons: "Nothing. We did leave a piece of luggage on the plane so hoping that things turn out okay."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Arrived 1:10 min begore departure. Customer service reps quoted me with No Show. When asked they have no courtesy to answer. Both the rep over the phone and the rep at the airport were horrible. Did I say I was traveling business class? You could imagine the economy"

Pros: "Flight was close to being on time. I was able to get a lot of sleep on the flight."

Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."

Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"

Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"

Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"

Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."

Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"

Cons: "Service is super fast"

Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."

Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."

Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"

Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."

Pros: "The speed of boarding, then the frequency of service. Cabin crew were very dedicated. All in all, a very smooth flight. Ps. my first Virgin was called Carole. ;)"
Cons: "The food left a lot to be desired, but apart from my flight on Emirates to Auckland, Airoplne food does tend to be somewhat......mmmm not sure what the word is, but room for improvement describes it."

Pros: "Legroom was much better than on U.S. carriers doing same long trip."

Pros: "Aisle/window seating!"
Cons: "My entertainment unit did not work. I was graciously offered an iPad, but declined, however, the picture quality at my son's seat was also iffy. Both my long-haul flights had poor signage for toilets."

Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."

Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."

Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."

Pros: "Great service outstanding staff"
Cons: "Entertainment package needs to better emirates and qatar could be taken as examoles Delay un take iff 3 times now in last 12 months"

Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Virgin has the nicest staff, good food, and excellent movie options. I had a great time on my flight!"

Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."

Cons: "Everyone was delightful during the entire flight."

Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."

Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"

Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."

Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "Price?"

Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."

Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"

Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"

Pros: "Entertainment system is great"
Cons: "Still very cramped. Cannot lower tray if you have anything in pocket (like an iPad or magazine) Should board rear section first."

Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."

Cons: "Bad social distance"

Pros: "Felt safe and sanitary"

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Price is ok"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"

Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"

Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."

Pros: "Food was plenty."
Cons: "Long security lines at Logan. No free WiFi"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Got in early"

Pros: "Being on time."

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."

Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Cons: "Luggage left in London and had to pay for baggage when Momondo said luggage was included"

Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Glad that i was able to secure a seat in the emergency exit row (row 70)"
Cons: "Wow, I am not a heavy woman, I wear a size large but I am not in the least obese, just tall and not skinny. The seat width was ridiculously tight! I have NEVER experienced such discomfort in a Emergency Row seat!"

Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."

Pros: "The seating configuration was ideal (2-3-2)"

Pros: "Gate, boarding and smooth sailing on A380 bus by the pilots"

Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."

Pros: "The short wait for departure."
Cons: "The long complicated walk to the gate...."

Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."

Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."

Cons: "It took 90 (ninety!) minutes to get my suitcase at SFO. What a shitty, second-world airport. "Love" the crt tvs playing awfully low-quality "welcome to the US" videos. Way to showcase Silicon Valley's technical advances. Laughable."

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "Was informed that boarding would be delayed but began within minutes. Arriva time was spot on"

Cons: "Most cramped seat I've ever sat in. Couldn't even sit because my knees hit the seat in front, before my but was in the chair."

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Terminal procedures, particularly a tarmac delay and understaffed customs and security personnel, jeopardized my London Heathrow connection in spite of the 80 minute layover. Itineraries with less than a two-hour connection should be discontinued as a fraudulent misrepresentation of the passenger's likely success. I will never fly through Heathrow again."

Pros: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Cons: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"

Pros: "The price for a direct flight was reasonable"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working and movie selection poor. No individual screens especially for a 10 hr flight. Staff were not that friendly either. Old plane and small seats. I would rather pay more for a more comfortable flight."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "In seat entertainment, better food."

Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."

Pros: "I loved how friendly the airline attendants were."
Cons: "I didn't like how in the Munich airport I couldn't find a place to plug my phone in. they should make those more accessible"

Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"

Pros: "The whole flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "all the food relied on bell pepper for flavor. Bell pepper is highly overrated"

Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."

Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"

Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"

Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."

Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"

Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Flight delayed ... Myself and three other colleagues didn't have our luggage show up from KLM flight from Amsterdam to Brussels...even though all of our luggage was labeled "priority". Once in customer service line, we looked and saw that many of the other passengers on our flight also never received their luggage. We estimated that 20-25% of the people on that flight did not receive their luggage as they were in line with us for the same problem. Hard to understand how so many pieces of luggage could have been overlooked and not loaded on our flight. Obviously there is a huge gap in their quality system to ensure mistakes like this are prevented."

Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"

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: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."

Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."

Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."

Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You are selling tickets for flights that are not available. You are taking money from people and cheating them. You should check to make sure the flights are still going"

Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "Water"

Cons: "Only item that could be better is quality of onboard entertainment."

Cons: "Excellent airline. Always my first choice!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The last 4 flights with Aerlingus have all been at least 2 hours delayed to London. People give out about Ryan Air but I have been flying with them to France 2 a year for the last 4 years and I only had one delayed flight because of air traffic controllers"

Cons: "The information at boarding time was hard to understand, even coffee was a charge, they didn’t have our stroller at the gate when we got off then when we got to baggage claim it was still hard to find."

Cons: "Nothing, everything was exceptional"

Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour even though the aircraft was there. Also my luggage did not arrive aty destination"

Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Paying more for closer to the door is like cheese on a burger. Not my favorite move by airlines."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Que in immigration"

Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the service was disgraceful"

Cons: "Very bumpy takeoff and landing"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic because everyone, no matter where they were seated, queued up half an our before the boarding began. There was no "pooled"boarding"

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."

Cons: "The booking left no time to make it to the next flight. Had to purchase a separate flight last minute."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."

Cons: "Plugins for headphones too old: no stereo sound. Paid for WiFi but it didn’t work."

Cons: "Their food is grotesque."

Pros: "Price Staff Efficient Comfortable Boarding and exit procedure excellent"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on our way home. Worst is that it has our toothbrushes and I can’t find new ones at 10:00 at night..."

Pros: "Great service. Food was alright. Quick boarding"
Cons: "Luggage took forever to arrive."

Pros: "The vegetarian meal was not available on either of my flights. I’d say they were a bit stingy handing out water as well. Space was good for the seating overall."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating. After boarding was complete they moved several passengers to other rows which allowed a better distribution of open seats."
Cons: "Per usual, airline food is blah!"

Pros: "Flights were on time. Planes were clean and comfortable. The food was ok - the ice cream was great as was the extra water."
Cons: "Some better food quality would be great."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "No free alcochol. Had to spend a night in Dublin just to connect! Over two hours late. And Aer Lingus really stunk flying the night before from Milano to Dublin. One person at their many counters for two hundred passenegers. Last time for Aer Lingus. On the other hand British Airways flew us from SF to Milano. We thought we were returning by British Airways. Screw job!"

Pros: "You can choose your seats without being charged and it was a very clean and comfortable flight"

Pros: "Clean plane, great service, delicious food with a menu card to boot - nice touch - good entertainment: I highly recommend Aer Lingus!"
Cons: "The American pre-clearance in Dublin did not mind running me a half an hour late to be the last to board the plane with everyone waiting and ready to go, very stressful!"

Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"

Cons: "It was delayed, stewardess not friendly"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "We borded Kemal time, but did not take off until an hour later"

Pros: "Crew members were impressive. Upon questions and requests, they respond in friendly and elegant manner."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Limited choice of entertainment. ****Lost my luggage both destination bound and home bound**** Being kept in the plane for an extended period of time after having landed. Not even a coffee during the connecting flights (Dublin to Cardiff and Gatwick to Dublin). Poor connecting facilities and having to repeat security screening before connecting to the second leg of trip."

Pros: "Crew members are very pleasant. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Very small snack provided at second mealtime was inadequate for body clock time wanting dinner."

Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"

Pros: "The Aer Lingus flight from London to Dublin was fast and easy"
Cons: "short duration in the air, no in flight entertainment or food and beverages"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No wifi on the plane...it did not work on both of my flights."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I was unable to change the flight in any way shape or form (even though I requested that weeks in advance). The only alternative was paying $+1000 more to change. While I still had tons of questions of my options (and was calm and polite!), they hung up on me. I ended up not even going on my flight and note being able to cancel my flight. Ridiculous, rude, and plain unpleasant. I will never take this airline again."

Cons: "Late departure on way back"

Pros: "I loved that there was a personal entertainment system for each passenger to listen to music, watch movies, etc."
Cons: "The system itself is extremely hard to navigate. The buttons won't respond to touch well so it takes you 10 minutes to set up a movie. Mine also kept rebooting itself so I couldn't watch a full movie the whole way through."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Alcohol was not free"

Cons: "My checked golf bag was not at baggage claim on arrival. Not delivered for 2 days causing havoc and extra expense for my golf vacation."

Cons: "i checked my luggage on tuesday 09 13 2016 and didn't get it back until monday 09 19 2016...very very very inconvenient since i was flying back on wednesday 09 21 2016 very early in the morning..."

Pros: "I was nervous about an unknown, no-frills airline. The food was nothing special, but everything else was great. I would use them again."

Pros: "Air crew are very friendly and welcoming. Plenty of space available"
Cons: "No water is brought around after the first hour until the plane lands so you could go 8 hours without a drink. Drinks are available in the galley but it's difficult to reach through all the people"

Pros: "A lot of space for feet"
Cons: "The service and food"
