I am due to fly 4 segments on Aer Lingus (EI) next month. They are LHR-DUB (A321), DUB-BRU (737), BRU-DUB (737), and DUB-LHR (A320).
I am already not-impressed. They don't offer pre-assigned seating and seemed to not understand why I would expect there to be? Well, maybe because where I am from almost EVRY flight has it? They list all flights as BREAKFAST or LUNCH flights, but based on my reaserch, I have been told that while this USED to mean a hot meal, they recently replced that with a hot snack, and then again replaced it with a choice of cofee, beer, tea, or water, and pack of crackers. Thy don't even offer Juice or soda on these flights I've been told. On American Eagle (not even a mainline flight) one will have a FULL choice of bevreges and a snack. Also, they sent their ticket to me in a paer envelope, normal mail. This caused the tickets to be soaked through because it was raining. I needed replacments.
In addition to these problems, AER LIGUS is the only airline in One World that does not get AA Credit for "L" class. I've also been told EI is not good on legroom.
So... tell me what you think. Will I enjoy my flights?
