Aer Lingus Insanity

Jump to last reply

All we needed was a one-way flight from Edinburgh to Dublin and decided on Aer Lingus. Until now, my joke was if that is what they do in the sky, what do they do on the ground? Well now I know.

We tried to book the flight on-line and although we went in order of their process, we were told we were timed out twice. So when we went back the third time it immediately stated that the price was $30 higher for each of us. This occurred in a matter of seconds.

Annoyed, we closed out Aer Lingus and looked for another flight and would up booking with the annoying and nickel grabbing Ryan Air. When that was done we went to check our e-mails to look for the confirmation, which was there, but there was also a confirmation from Aer Lingus at the higher price. None of the Aer Lingus on-line screens ever confirmed our reservation.

Although we did not know it at the time you can canel a US carrier flight, even if non-cancellable, with 24 hours of making the reservation which we did.
