Travel Insurance waste of money - Fly Delta!

We bought a flight for an Irish citizen who was unable to make the flight. The insurance we purchased for the flight through Allianz was a waste of money as the insurance company refused to reimburse the flight and suggested we contact Aer Lingus about Travel funds. Of course, you can't call Aer Lingus, you have to fill out a multitude of forms and then no one ever gets back to you, so there's $900 down the drain. We flew 9 Irishmen over to the states to the tune of $9,000 and Aer Lingus couldn't even discuss future travel funds for the 1 who couldn't make it. So be sure to read all 21 pages of the 8 pt type of terms and conditions or better yet...don't buy the travel Insurance and book on Delta.

Horrible experience: would not recommend this airline

I fly 3+ times a year internationally and this was my first time flying Aer Lingus. The transatlantic flight from Seattle to Dublin was delayed, awfully dirty and the seats wouldn't recline. The staff was impolite. The entertainment options were extremely limited and they did not have any working headphones.

The domestic flight from Dublin to Birmingham was worse; it was delayed and the management was a mess. As I was getting through security, the airline updated the monitors that the flight had left, whereas they hadn't even started boarding. The also lost and damaged my luggage and were always unaccessible whenever I reached out. This flight was cheap and the food (on the transatlantic carrier only) was good but the pros are not worth the hassle. I would recommend finding a better airline. Their organization is a mess and they are unreliable. I'm regretting booking my return flight through them. If you do decide to fly through them, get travel insurance and cover your bases.

Pushed to pay 110$ extra to seat together as a family while a lot of seats were free for whole flight.

Yesterday we boarded an Aer Lingus flight and were told that there were no places available for my husband and me to sit together, even though we...

Cabin crew very rude and did not accept me and my husband on board for no reasons

We were told by the cabin crew that our both cabin bags will go with the luggage. We had no other bags with us and we asked to give one cabin bag and to keep one cabin bag with the medication for my husband and the apple tablet. We observed the other passengers they have their cabin bags. We were told that by the cabin Superviser Ciara that if you not give your bags YOU ARE NOT FLYING on the EI609 flight. We accepted to give both cabin bags but anyway we were not allowed to fly. The cabin crew treat us like no humans and called the airport police for us. We were forced to stay one night in Amsterdam and buy new tickets with Ryanair which cost us 550 Euro. We were sick and late for work in Dublin( working in private hospital as Clinical Coordinator in operation theatre).
The Aerlingus ground Superviser in Dublin apologise and told us that the behaviour of Cabin staff Ciara was unacceptable and she could not see any reasons that we were not accepted on board.

Will never take this service due to desktop computer fail...

Thank you Aer Lingus. Due to your crew prohibiting me to bring a desktop computer (properly secured in a customised case for electronics) as cargo baggage in October and also for failing to include this bit of information in that baggage information website of yours, I have endured a costly, time-consuming and stressful procedure to import this piece of equipment to my country (customs in this country is also crap) up to day (end of December).

The rest of it was at most, average.

Will never require your services again.

Good flight

A good flight between Gatwick and Dublin.

The LGW is completely renovated and very good. The flight was delayed of 30min which is ok.

On the flight, everything was perfect. A bit disappointed that there was no free refreshment.

The arrival in Dublin was very good and very quick.

The lowest of the low-cost

Reserving tickets on this airline's Internet site was confusing due to numerous translation errors, but we managed.

The flight was delayed 45 minutes without an explanation and there was no information provided about the delay before we boarded (the departures board listed the flight as on time), even though they knew about the delay. There were no excuses or explanations for the delay. The rotation times in airports seem much too close together. The smallest delay on the 1st flight leaves no room to catch up that evening.

This was a flight with no real problems, but the service was terrible (no food or drink was offered, not even a glass of water.

The absence of "extras" seems normal with a company such as Ryanair because of the cost of the ticket, but at the same price as Aer Lingus, HOP offers beverages and snacks.

In short, a company to avoid. For the same price, or even less, you can find better flights.
