Purchased this trip for my son to go visit his sister who is stationed in Germany with the US Army. The ticket was purchased on Travelocity. Because Aer Lingus punishes customers for not booking directly, it was impossible to use the Aer Lingus site to choose seats, add his frequent flyer number, etc. Ridiculous. I am a 1K Million Miler...

I flew from Dublin to Seattle return at the start of November. The entire experience was excellent. The staff could not have been better - pleasant and cheerful, helpful when needed. Would recommend Aer Lingus in a heartbeat.

We flew with Aer Lingus to JFK in October. It was my first time flying with this airline and I was apprehensive as it was a lot cheaper than flying with BA. First impressions were good though. A handy app on my phone with our trip details, check in online and select seat online - which is an additional charge....

Our flight to Dublin was overnight. They brought out a hot meal at 10:30 PM which my husband and I declined as we had eaten in the airport. I think a better service might have been a hot breakfast or at least something more appetizing than a cold muffin and orange juice. The attendants were a delight. Economy is not...

The service was wonderful. A meal and a continental breakfast were served. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The flight was smooth. I heard a number of people ask about a vegetarian option and were told they should request at time of booking. I don't recall seeing one. Perhaps this could be made more visible. I am planning on...

Going, a late flight (problems at B'ham and Dublin Airports). Coming back, no issues at all. One tiny problem was on the computerised maps. They had Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, WOLVERHAMPTON and London. Probably that I'm from Birmingham but how strange that they put Wolverhampton. Wolverhampton, a great city but makes me wonder if it was intentional.

First time flying Aer Lingus and was very happy. On the way to Ireland we were virtually on a new plane. It was very comfortable with a decent amount of leg room for economy. Plane left as scheduled, staff were friendly and it was just an overall pleasant experience. They also fed us pretty well too, which I know many...

I have flown several times with Aer Lingus. I am giving a medium grade, as I think there are few things to be improved. I will begin with the good ones: 1. Excellent prices compared to other airlines, including Alitalia and Air Italy (formerly known as Meridiana). 2. Excellent timetable, when flying out of Milan (3hrs), but not from Naples...

Our flight to NYC was a fantastic experience with Aer Lingus with the added bonus of pre clearing US immigration meaning that we went from landing to hotel in midtown Manhattan in around 2 hours! Our flight from Edinburgh was slightly delayed and we had a long bus journey from disembarking in Dublin to our connecting terminal which meant we...
