| Seattle to Barcelona via Dublin. The overall quality for the price was good the international flight had good food and surprisingly good entertainment, but where we ran into some major problems was when it came to luggage and flight times. Both flights were quite late by about an hour (SEA to DUB and DUB to Spain) While this is rather common for a cheap airline it is nonetheless annoying, and probably something to be expected from Aer Lingus in the future. The biggest issue and really the reason I even chose to write this review is that they lost our luggage. The only reason we took this flight and the connecting one was because it was exclusively through Aer Lingus and we figured that with a 6 hour layover in Dublin they would have time to move our bags from one plane to the other. This was too much to ask, however, and despite being told they would transfer the bags they did not. (I am speaking for me and my friend) Once in Spain we learned that another passenger that flew from the UK and then connected to Barcelona from Dublin had the exact same issue, however his story was even stupider since he actually happened to see that his luggage had been unloaded and placed in the carousel in Dublin airport. Keep in mind this was just by chance, he grabbed his bag and told the staff that Air Lingus was supposed to have taken care of this and should have put it on the Barcelona bound plane. Despite him correcting this mistake and giving them another chance to fix it, they till forgot his bag in Dublin. That is pure incompetence. So now me and my friend are in Barcelona for a two month long study abroad, havent heard anything from Aer Lingus and have literally one change of clothes and nothing else. Maybe other peoples' experiences are better than ours, but this airline although has some promise of being sub-par, is simply not worth the risk. Spend the extra money, I know I will next time. Side note: legroom was pretty good and me and my friend are both 6'4".
