I recently took a flight using Aer Lingus to fly from the United States to Ireland. The meal/snack/beverage service came in a very efficient and timely manner. The comfort of the seats and space around them was superior to that of other airlines I have flown. The plane had a late departure returning to the United States, however still made it relatively on time. There was no extra charge for baggage and check in at the airport took no time at all. I was actually at the terminal in ample time before the plane took off. There was a wait at the baggage claim, just because the flight was so full. The staff were very courteous, even after having been awake all night and perhaps the day before. Overall. it was a positive experience and I will certainly be flying Aer Lingus some time in the future!
