Aer Lingus Service

Sun Jan 28, 2001 11:51 am

How is Aer Lingus' service? I will be taking a trip to Ireland in August, and I am considering Aer Lingus and Delta. I have flown with Delta several times but Aer Lingus price is better at this time. Any advice?
Thanks!

I never flown with Aer Lingus or Delta. But I have heard that Aer Lingus is a pretty good airline.

Aer Lingus across the Atlantic is a pretty decent experience. To be truthful, I've only flown two round-trips with them, but I certainly have no complaints about my flights. Staff were helpful, and the flights were on-time.

In coach, I recall a clean head towel, as well as a pillow & blanket placed on every seat. The legroom is decent, and headphones and bar service are complimentary. They claim to offer complimentary newspapers, although they have never materialized the two times I've been in coach. There are no PTVs, but the mainscreen programming is high-quality.

If you are travelling up front, I can also supply info on that...

Hi there, yes, I can certainly recommend Aer Lingus, although it's a long time since I've flown t/a with them (the last being to Chicago in 1990, when they still had 747s). However, the airline is a good one - safe, reliable and with friendly crews and a great fleet (A330s). Where are you flying from?

Also, I heard that Irish FAs are nice - definitely worth paying attention to that safety briefing  Smile (if done live, not via video...).

Seriously, flying Aer Lingus should give a chance to try out A330. I know I would go for it, as I haven't flown this beautiful aircraft yet.

Thanks for the helpful information!
Kaitak, I would be leaving from Lexington and connecting to Aer Lingus in Chicago or JFK.
