Everything was fine until I pressed confirm payment when a sign suddenly popped up saying that my flight had increased by €50 between choosing it and paying for it. It said that the airline had increased the price probably due to increased demand for seats. Is this even legal?? I’ll be making a complaint to both Aer Lingus and whoever the aviation watchdog in Dublin is. Disgusted is the word I would use to describe this - and unbelievably unfair. It’s called gouging your customers
A comfortable flight and on time.
The flight was great. On time, no issues.
Rome was like a landfill Msilan is crazy expensive People are pig ignorant Venice was pretty.
Brilliant flight, no messing about, no delay, absolutely perfect!
Flight experience was very poor Not allowed to check in early had to wait till two hours till flight time and it was delayed
We were delayed 3 hours with no refreshments
the staff on outbound and inbound flights were excellent
Flight direct from Aer Lingus were approx 70 euros less than what we were charged by your company, so would never book with eDteams again
Flight attendants should have a list of seats assigned to passengers.
Flight delayed. Airport cold. Delay on take off. Delay on boarding
Very swift service all good
We were very happy with our flight experience
Ryanair model for significantly more money
