General good experience. However, the only thing can be improved is the airline website for booking and check in. I had made paid necessary extra due to the website information process system unclear

Dublin - Heathrow ( DUB - LHR )
5.0 /5
Date 2018-02-22 Age Over 70 Class Economy

While the flight experience and value rating was very good, the pre-flight experience was a bit of a nightmare. I couldn't find a way to add an extra bag and the cost of that online. I was kept being told over the telephone that I could only add an extra bag when I arrived at the airport, usually the most expensive option. I traveled from Belfast by bus and was greatly inconvenienced by not knowing even approximately how much an extra bag would cost. I don't think I would have had this problem had I booked my flight directly with the air line. I will not use a third party agent ever again.
