Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."

Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."

The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out.

I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"

Cons: "Boarding in Naples was dire"
Cons: "Seats don't recline"
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"
Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "People had to go a long way to find space to stow their bags. No one was telling people to put small bags under their seats."

Pros: "Boarding well organised, cfrew friendly."
Cons: "Announcements too frequent and very loud."
Cons: "Missed the need to add luggage to both inward and outbound journey, that got excessively charged on the way back.

Cons: "Nothing to not like. Jet2 have good planes, excellent legroom and great staff."
Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."
Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."
Cons: "Timing and space"
Pros: "The convenience of the route"
Cons: "The thumping 'music' as we boarded, the over-jolly announcements which treated the passengers as if they were all mentally deficient or poorly educated. The information they conveyed was clear and comprehensive and obviously, safety instructions are crucial, but the format and tone of delivery were so patronising I thought they were a parody. They also assumed everybody was coming back to the UK after their holiday - the flight had a good proportion of French passengers and some of us don't live in the UK. Make the announcements more neutral. I fly with a lot of no-frills lines, especially Ryanair and EasyJet as well as the larger carriers such as Air France, BA, SAS and Air Canada, but I have never come across such grating and irritating announcements. I will think twice before booking another flight with them rather than endure this again."
Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."
Cons: "Nothing. Superb flight."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Charge to ensure you keep your free hand luggage in the cabin. Security delays at Belfast."
Pros: "First holiday with Jet2 and really impressed. My only tip would be to book a meal, as pre-booked meals are served first and the non-booked sandwiches ran out by our row. Will fly with them again."
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Having to turn off electronic equipment for take off and 30 mins before landing. Ridiculous as all other airlines now agree this is pointless."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Although as always we seemed to end up in the crèche part of the cabin."
Cons: "Having to switch off all electronics while the seatbelt sign is on believe bags in the last century. Even a kindle! This is just ridiculous."
Pros: "- Boarding was quick and effortless - Customer service was excellent from both ground staff and in flight team - No niggly baggage rules - Fair prices for in flight meals and snacks A huge thank you to Jet2 for providing an excellent service at fair prices"
Pros: "Short check in, good leg room in seats"
Cons: "Overpriced food"

Pros: "Everything, staff the whole package faultless, well done !!!"
Pros: "First time iv used jet2 and I will again"
Pros: "Great flight, super low price. Overall great value. Also the cabin staff were great. The flight was quite empty so we had a bit of a blether"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong with the flight, aircraft or service. Only one star for food cos I didn't order, and for entertainment as there was none. Wasn't expecting for £80"
Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"
Cons: "Delay due to incompetence at Venice airport"
Pros: "- Flight was on time, yet they pad the timetable to make it difficult to be late. - Aircraft was relatively clean considering this was its 4th flight of the day, and the fact it's 29 years old. - More laid back then EZY and FR as they allow a reasonable turnaround time."
Cons: "- Seat assignments don't always make sense, we were split up even though there was an empty row behind us. - Shortly after takeoff passengers moved into the extra legroom seats without paying. - Constant attempt to sell things to you, scratch cards, overpriced drinks etc."
Pros: "On one of the busiest weekends for flying it was perfect..... the plane the staff and the flight"
Cons: "The food was expensive and not great"
Pros: "Convenient flights. Friendly staff. Excellent price."
Cons: "Older aircraft means electronic devices can only be used while cruising. Long queue for bag drop due to many flights leaving at once."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew and clean aircraft both ways."
Cons: "Poor entertainment and lack of holder on seat in front to hold magazines, phone, iPad etc."
Cons: "Our flight out was delayed by a couple of hours and the return flight was delayed at least an hour. It was clear skies, no tusre why. Also, after having paid to check our bag, the bag didn't arrive at our destination because it was removed from the plane, along with 26 others. We didn't get it back for 5 days, just in time for our holiday to be over."
Pros: "Staff and process"
Cons: "No entertainment, pre booking hot food"
Cons: "This is a buckle and fine airline. I went to check in online the day before my flight and added a checked bag for each passenger. The website did not work well and it ended up booking 2 bags each and charging me for two each. When I arrived at the airport they said I had not checked on online and had to pay extra for checking in at the airport. I asked for a manager who said there was no record of me going online. That was odd because I booked and paid for my bags online the previous day while I was checking in.they said I had to write a letter to get back my extra baggage fees I was charged in error. I doubt I will ever see that money again."
Pros: "Good service and price"
Cons: "Poor food selection"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Was told five minutes before landing that we would be circling the airport for 20 mins due to runway closure which turned into half an hour. When we landed we had to wait a further 10 - 15 minutes before we could taxi to the airport, so nearly an hour late but no delay."
Pros: "Fast, efficient boarding. Helpful cabin staff."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats that don't recline and seat back pockets have no "give" to fit your personal items."
"7 hour delay poorly handled by airline"
Pros: "the only thing that stands out was the agent who checked me in at Entebbe. She was pleasant and helpful. Most things were ok, but not special."
Cons: "Because I require oxygen onboard, I was not allowed to check in on line. consequently, my wife and I got middle seats that were very tight. At least one of them was an aisle."
Cons: "Everything went wrong. The flight arrived 40 minutes late and I missed my connecting flight because they closed the gate before I could get there. As a result, when I asked both airlines involved (Brussels Air and Portugal Air (TAP) what to do, each airline blamed the other airline for the problem and each said it was my problem to fix. After speaking with ten people and begging them to make the problem right for a problem I did not create, they finally issued me a new ticket but I had to wait 24 hours for the new flight to leave. It was a total breakdown in communication and organization and customer support and problem resolution on the part of the airlines and the airport. I never want to fly these airlines again and never want to take a flight with connections."
Pros: "On board service and entertainment. The plane itself was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in process was slow and inefficient. One of our bags was routed on another flight (we’re still waiting for it). Ridiculous amount charged for chech in luggage for an international flight!"
Pros: "Best Econ service for a long time.Beats the Comp hands down."
Pros: "All was planned, no surprises, on time and no hassles"
Cons: "Keep it as it is. No need to fix what is not broken. Just reduce the very expensive prices that Brussels Airlines charge for its economy class tickets"
Pros: "After a bad experience checking in from Paris, the Ouagadougou part of the trip went well and the food was good, and a good entertainment system."
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "No food except for purchase. Expected at least cup of coffee/crackers"
Pros: "Pleasant staff. Comfortable plane. Second leg from Brussels to Frankfurt was great."
Cons: "Check in at Manchester was a joke. No signage for Brussels Airlines to start with and no one to help. Long queue, over 1½ hours to drop a bag after checking in on line. Every other airline was way faster. Thankfully, security was relatively quick."
Pros: "clean plane and nice crew"
Cons: "plane was an hour late, there was no lounge access and no where to sit my pregnant wife in the departure hall"
Pros: "The crew was kind and respectful. The flight was on time and the food was OK."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, food was good, efficient and friendly service!"
Cons: "When I was trying to get in the line to check"
Pros: "Brussels Air was on time, attendants were courteous, plane was clean and in great condition. For a discount flight, it was great!"
Cons: "Despite the fact that I reserved a window seat, I was assigned a seat in the middle of the center row. They also 'sanitized' the airplane twice after that closed the doors before take off. They walked up and down the aisle with aerosol spray cans. I don't think people should be subject to unknown chemicals in order for the airline to save time on cleaning the cabin before take off."
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Pros: "Brussels Air ensured my safety. They made sure that the plane was airworthy."
Cons: "I was due to fly from London to Entebbe via Brussels. Sixteen hours after boarding the flight, I am still in Brussels. We try to complete the assignment another day. My criticism was the overoptimism of the captain how quickly things would happen and on arrival in Brussels the total unpreparedness of the ground staff to cope with half a plane load of people with connections having missed those connections."
Pros: "While the flight left late, the service on board was good as was the comfort provided. Staff friendly. I actually was pleasantly surprised overall given a long past experience on the old SABENA."
Cons: "None, overall a decent transatlantic flight without any problems."
Cons: "1,5 hour delay flight from Brussels to Venice and no service with hot tea or coffee for appologize :("
Pros: "Easy to cancel Trip"
Cons: "Kayak did not have a system of knowing that I cancelled the flights"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I landed safely in Brussels."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with seats that didn’t recline, head rests that didn’t move, no in-flight entertainment, no pillows or blankets, and unfriendly and somewhat rude, jaded flight attendants. The most uncomfortable international flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding. All amenities were available."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "The fight was delayed and cause me to lose my second flight even though they were the same airline and the second plane was still sitting at the airport. It added 6 hours to my journey."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Excellent feature that shows your current trip progress on the world map. Excellent selection of movies. Excellent employees."
Cons: "The seat was alittle uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "Food was bad. Seats not very comfortable. Food was awful. Very few movies in English."
Cons: "Plane was malfunctioning- the electric went out several times ont be way to take off and right after landing. Food and drinks only for sale. Boarding late"
Cons: "Boarding late. Good for sale-not even a cup of water free, staff rude, there is no entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was late and I almost missed my connection in Brussels"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay"
Pros: "On time boarding and the flight was in less time than expected."
Cons: "No leg room, my tray table was broken"
Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."
Pros: "The chocolate was delicious!"
Cons: "The food was not that good but edible."
Pros: "On time Polite crew"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I paid for a ticket that includes a hot meal, but a day before the flight they changed their policy so I didn't get any meal. They even asked for money for a cup of water, and this is my red line. The seats recline and comfort is poor."
Cons: "I would like a survey about my experience flying FROM JFK TO MONROVIA on Dec. 5 & 6! I have decided that this was my last voluntary flying experience with Brussels Airlines!"
Cons: "I lost whole lot of items from my suitcase when it left behind at my arrival to Liberia. I never said any because it was Africa and I knew. I would never get those stuff back. I am disappointed"
Pros: "I flew on United, not Brussels, on this leg."
Cons: "Old plane. Seats couldn't be adjusted. Had to take a bus to board the plane."
Cons: "* No information was provided to the passengers about an additional delay of the flight after the original 5 hour delay. * No compensation was offered for the inconvenience of a delayed baggage by 2 days. * My family is definitely not going to fly with Brussels Airlines after the experience we had."
Pros: "In-flight staff are professional and try to get on with things even in tricky situations."
Cons: "Inbound connection from Tokyo was late (1 hour) but this flight BRU-MAN was also 1 hour late, so got to the gate easily in time for boarding only to find my seat and boarding pass had been cancelled! Poor management of the situation - they don't check whether the connection is *actually* OK, just use the timetable. Poor real-time handling of the situation. This flight is sometimes subcontracted out to WDL who fly various other flights for SN throughout the day, and so any delay elsewhere in Europe can delay this flight. Baggage priority ignored for Star Gold. Missed train connection on arrival in UK. Due to the above problems. In-flight staff OK but ground crew seem disorganised."
Cons: "We found the crew to be abrupt in manner on both flights."
Pros: "Crew was polite in spite of their frustrations and ours."
Cons: "Power outage at Brussels airport caused a delay (no ones fault), a drunk man was let on the plane, which led to us detouring from taxi to another gate to have police escort him off. This led to extra security checks of hand and checked baggage. They found an extra bag? Which led to extra, extra security checks. Worker fell off the luggage conveyor belt, plane was surrounded by medical staff and an ambulance. We finally took off, 3 hours late. I arrived at St. Petersburg, but my luggage did not. The next day I found out it had been sent to Frankfurt. An absolute disaster, many of the problems could have been prevented by more diligence from the airline."
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Seats unbelievably uncomfortable. Not in terms of leg room, but rather they were just hard to sit on for more than 10 mins. Not hard and not soft just weird"
Pros: "the same"
Cons: "the same"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "3 hour flight to Athens would have been much better if they at least offered water at no charge!"
Pros: "There were a couple of the flight attendants that were excellent: Friendly, welcoming and service minded. Not all, but I have come to expect the worst from United (I fly 5-6 trips a year with UA, 5-6 trips with other Star Alliance airlines). Food in Economy Plus was mediocre at best, it seems United are catering this from a correctional facility. Overall good experience due to the staff, but nothing that wow'ed us beyond being better than what we have come to expect from United."
Pros: "My flight was cancelled at midnight. It was delayed at least five times before we were notified it was cancelled. The staff was rude and mon accomidating. I had to cancel work. I'm tired and angry."
Cons: "United airlines"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and actually smiled often! The food served was tasty and they made sure we had plenty of water throughout the flight."
Cons: "A crying baby for most of the flight. I offered to help the Mom a bit. Couldn't be helped by the airline of course."
Pros: "Quick boarding and landed earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "The air-con was too cold. The seats don't allow you to sleep as there's no where to rest your head against."
Cons: "Was good flight overall, clean, friendly staff,"
Pros: "It was very quick and arrived ahead of time."
Pros: "Crew were amazing arrived early"
Cons: "In flight entertainment"

Cons: "long delays"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly cramped - felt like the seat back in front of me was right in my face!"
Cons: "It’s was late both out and return"
Cons: "Plane delayed and overbooked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, normal easy jet flight, not expensive, short on space and just about ok on comfort. But, good flight times and reasonable cost. There was a very big man in my row, with his small wife, he just about fitted on,but I don't think of have accepted him sitting next to me."
Cons: "Horrible boarding process."
Pros: "easy, no fuss boarding and flight"
Cons: "the queuing to have your bags scanned as you board your flight was confusing as there were 3 queues in the same space for flights leaving within 10 minutes of each other. Not a big deal, but someone explaining which queue to those at the back would have been helpful"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "quick check in information given in good time regular messages about potential disruption friendly staff"
Cons: "some times cabin staff were a bit too business-like al few people skills would be good"
Pros: "Efficient No Frills Value For Money"
Cons: "Cramped Seating"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "2-hour delay due to "crew welfare issues" Even after a 2-hour delay, they let more cabin baggage on board than was possible to stow in the lockers, resulting in rather chaotic scenes around transfer of baggage to the hold, and adding toi delay.. Entirely avoidable"
Pros: "Great service landed early both ways defo use again"
Pros: "No having to have hassle of traveling"
Pros: "Crew got a late running service boarded and off the gerund promptly and made up time during the flights."
Cons: "Slightly worrying that it was running late n the first place; it’s a no-frills airline. But that’s fine!"
Pros: "Great flight great staff"
Cons: "Can’t wait to fly again"
Pros: "I don’t expect much from low cost airlines. Convenience and being in time"
Cons: "Passport control is just unbearable. 45 min because they had one person for Sever flights. A third world country does better"
Cons: "I missed the flight,because not enough time"
Pros: "I liked the price of my flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no update on the app to indicate it. A lot of time wasted waiting in the airport and a very late arrival in Manchester."
Pros: "Crew was very good keeping everyone happy"
Cons: "Delayed and boarded plane and sat for 2 and half hours before taking off."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 minutes"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Almost 2hour delay"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant and the pilot did an excellent job in difficult weather conditions"
Cons: "The flight was not stocked with sufficient food and had run out of sandwiches by row 3. Considering food is purchased for an additional fee this is surely makes poor business sense aside from being frustrating for passengers on a 3 hour flight plus a delay. Flights were very expensive especially when factoring in that we had to pay to check a bag, to select seats and to purchase food and drink. Worked out as terrible value for money when compared with an Emirates flight to New Zealand."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow Seat was very uncomfortable, it is like they discriminate against tall people, leg space gets less and less by the year"
Pros: "The landing was hairy and I have never experienced a fish tail landing quite like it before."
Cons: "The landing was horrid and Im sure I lost £15 off the cashier for wine and cheddar crackers was like a magic trick gone wrong. Sort your float for each flight and stop making assumptions with short change and playing games."
Pros: "Flight was well organised and lef on time."
Cons: "Rating of one star for food was because we didn't have any and entertainment because understandably there wasn't any."
Pros: "Friendly staff, food ok"
Cons: "Shepherded into a small area with very few seats, and anyway, we were held in lanes like sheep! Seating on the plane - narrow and little space between rows. Had to wait quite a while for baggage to arrive."
Cons: "Booked wrong date before confirmation came phoned to cancel was told I couldn't have a refund would never use easy jet again"
Pros: "In general i'm a big fan of Easy jet, nothing to claim in general"
Cons: "with the cancellation i had minimal services from airline. Very very poor hotel, transport to be organised on my own, same with food but all covert by easyjet at the end..... i was really badly impress, being a frequent traveller, about the quality of hotel, the worst since years ..."
Pros: "The plane had been refitted with the new slimline seats which give more space. The actual flight was good and easyJet are very good at accommodating disabled passengers on board."
Cons: "The plane was delayed but we were called to gate regardless and had to stand on the airplane ramp for a long time, then the pilot announced he'd missed his rake-off slot and we had to sit on tarmac for further hour. The pilot, note any other staff, apologised for delay upon landing despite it being the fault of staff boarding customers so slowly and pilot not pushing back in time to get allocated take-off slot. I will be avoiding easyJet flights to/from Gatwick as they are ALWAYS delayed."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. I was directed towards the rear if the plane so I didn't have to walk town the entire plane. I was offered to check my hand luggage in the hold for free"
Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"
Cons: "Flight was 45mins delayed"
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Late departure. Limited legroom."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Easyjets own App cancelled my flight and the rescinded this cancellation. Thus I travelled to the airport and found it was cancelled again. Worse; initially no rescheduled flight for >5 days. Had to buy a seperate ticket to a different airport."
Pros: "I got home safely and sound!!"
Cons: "I needed special assistance, many delays on getting me to the departure gate, the team at the airport, really didn't seem to know where I needed to be, although I'd reminded them a number of times, even when last call for my flight was called, no action until the last minute!! Alicante airport lost our flight plan, as relayed by our pilot, eventually got told we've got 2 flight plans!! We could have been a half hour early landing but not to be, upon arrival there were not enough wheelchairs so confusion ensued."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."
Cons: "Easyjet strike caused flight cancelation. Called Easy but robot said to call back in 72 hours due to swamped calls. Then called Kayk and robot disavowed responsibility. 72 hours later still couldn't get thruough to Easy. Edward Vinieratos +371 2 658 6440"
Pros: "On time, welcoming crew on board"
Cons: "Request to put small handbag into half empty flight bag is just petty. If easyJet insist on checking customers through and then holding them in a pen, they should provide facilities/seating - we are not cattle but that is the impression given."
Pros: "On time fantastic !"
Pros: "Very comfortable experience. Boarding was easy. Check in was convenient. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike."
Pros: "The whole thing from start to finish was excellent"
Cons: "What is the point of buying priority boarding if everyone gets on the plane at once.. 9 euro for 3 bottles of water says it all to."
Pros: "On time, quick boarding. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No air bridges"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early, the staff were pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit grubby."
Cons: "Staff at check-in desk were rude. My carry on luggage was taken from me and placed in the hold even though I booked my flight long before Ryanair changed their rules about charging for carry on luggage. The sticky tab that the member of staff placed on my back has left marks all over the handle."
Pros: "Easy boarding, plane looked clean, crew all smart and genuine smiles. The bonus is we arrived early and their were no Benidorm p..s artists on board. Excellent."
Cons: "Only that we were late leaving, this didn’t matter in the end because we arrived early. I only gave one star for Food & Entertainment as the option to give no stars is not available. I’m sure the food would have been fine,however, I didn’t have food and brought a book for my own entertainment although I don’t believe any entertainment other than your own is available. I would suggest that Kayak offer a not applicable option on their star rating grid."
Pros: "The stay"
Cons: "Ridiculous long wait even though Ryanair said to still go for the original time. 9hours in the airport is not good enough"
Cons: "Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing"
Pros: "Flights ran to time"
Cons: "Some passengers were taking phone calls when the safety demonstration was being done."
Pros: "front-line staff were sincere. Plane was well-maintained."
Cons: "Chat staff wasn't competent."
Cons: "Delayed, then slow luggage reclaim (I believe that's your problem rather than the airport)"
Pros: "By the time you were up it was on its wayndowm 40 mins"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Filthy seats and pull down trays and chaos boarding as people being asked to change seats"
Pros: "Flight delayed, 20 minutes to get through passport control, chaos at the car park due to changes & fees! Welcome back to England ☹️"
Cons: "Ryanair delays, Manchester airport in general, poor and anti-travelers focused"
Pros: "crew very good"
Cons: "2 hour delay and no information, even changed boarding gate and did not inform passengers who was already waiting."
Pros: "Nothing really, it's a cheap ticket and that's it."
Cons: "Ridiculous boarding situation, expensive onboard food and beverage. Upright seats. Advanced check in always seats your group apart to encourage you to purchase seats. Budget airline that trust to milk their clients for every penny. Only use them if no other option."
Cons: "We were forced to get on the aircraft when it arrived late, with another 737 taxiing next to it( I know illegal). Then forced to sit on the plane for nearly 3 hours on the ground in heat. Staff were rude and awful. Everything was stupidly expensive, even water!!! When we eventually got to Manchester we had to wait in the plane again for 45minutes for the bus to arrive to take us to the airport. Only one person on passport control. Where our bags were all in a pile on the floor because of some malfunction. Ryanair flights are hell!!"
Pros: "3 hour delay due to an Italian air traffic control strike. Not the crews fault but they handled it well, especially the captain who spoke to everyone face to face"
Cons: "The selection of food was dismal and expensive, glad ok didn't buy as the quality looked poor"
Pros: "Landing at Liverpool to get off the plane"
Cons: "A 3 hour delay. Unruly passengers."
Cons: "40 minutes baking on the bus to take us to the aircraft, Lack of communication Disrespectful and bad attitude of the crew Paying £80 to put luggage in hold to be told as I didn’t report that my case was damaged when I arrived at 01:00 am (in the morning) with an onward journey of 2 hrs I could not now place a complaint! Despite having photographic evidence!! No tap water available - given ice and boiling water I am done flying with Ryanair"
Pros: "Food was hot and tasty."
Cons: "Near 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight then held in pens for ages then held on the plane too."
Pros: "Ryanair still not putting their customers first. Poor experience checking in online. Had to use online chat which needed several attempts to get an answer, be careful calling Ryanair as they charge 13p per minute"
Pros: "For the price what is there to complain about."
Cons: "Too expensive for what you get. Bad landing! Oh dear"
Cons: "As we landed at las palmas the passengers were screaming as we had turbulence, no one from the crew tried to ease their fear."
Cons: "Boarding at Alicante was disorganised"
Cons: "On both flights we were called tbrough for boarding only to be kept queueing for over half an hour before actually boarding the plane. On the flight to East Midlands when everyone was on board we were then told due to an air traffic restriction we had to wait another 45 minutes before we could take off. On the return flight after queueing for half an hour only after I asked why we had waited so long were we told that the plane HADN't EVEN LANDED YET. So both flights were delayed with no explanation from anyone. Also all announcements on both flights were very difficult to hear above the engine noise. I am afraid that this experience has made me realise that I will NEVERTHELESS fly with Ryanair again. I would rather pay the extra and fly with a better airline."
Pros: "Easy embarkation, left on time, uneventful flight, arrived before schedule. Just what I wanted."
Cons: "Everything was just fine."
Pros: "The flight there and back got us there early each time despite being late departing. Choosing your seat is the ideal thing to do, even if it is only £6 more its worth it."
Cons: "There was no Aircon on the plane out which made it an uncomfortable flight out there and caused for certain people to smell slightly. The staff on the flight back weren't overly great and one accused a bloke of snatching when actually his bag was just heavy. She also had attitude towards others which made me think, whats she going in this job."
Pros: "Typical Ryanair flight. You know what you are getting"
Cons: "Delayed. Chaotic boarding"
Cons: "The service is poor. They just want to rip you off. The bag price is ridiculous. When you check in they put you in separate seats do you pay. I paid for my son when we were flying out but when coming back l refused to pay. Guess what happened they allocated my 22 year old to sit on the emergency exit. The crew then came to me asking if l could swap seats with my son as he was not allowed to sit there as if it was me who had allocated him that seat. If it was the other way round they would have asked me to pay. When it suits them."
Cons: "Not much extra leg room and one attempted rammed the trolley into my foot trapping my toe against the wall and the didn't even respond to me shouting out in pain"
Pros: "They got us to Manchester alive, although late as always with Ryanair"
Cons: "Everything else, Ryanair provided an awful service, delays on both ends of the journey. No info provided to us and to top it off, there was a screaming child in front of me and next to me."
Pros: "Ease of being all done online check.in . Seats . Loved the crew the friendliness. The seat comfort and space ."
Cons: "The allowing of drunk passengers on return rude loud quite scary . Crew dealt with them very professionally"
Pros: "The flight was speedy and the plane was one of the new ones with a new interior, which was a nice change from the flight out to Germany."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and disorganised, the plane set off late as Ryanair always do, there were incredibly loud and rude customers onboard which the staff did nothing about. The seats weren't comfortable at all and the headrests were awful. Generally just an uncomfortable plane, the new design looks nicer but the seats are a lot thinner and it shows Just felt very cheap, the flights weren't even particularly cheap either"
Pros: "It was much, much better than the flight to Ibiza because the passengers were at least civilized ,were quiet & did not cause the crew any problems maybe because they were knackered after partying."
Cons: "Nothing to report. All went well. Very efficient & pleasant."
Pros: "Effective service point A to B. Flew from Hamburg Manchester and seated 17A. Leg room good on the exit row."
Cons: "New slimline seats will be difficult for anything more than 2 hours"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Me on row 2 ...wife row 18. All because we didn't pay 'extra' for seats that we had already paid for in the price of a flight! So, basically, if you don't pay, then Ryanair purposely separate couples in punishment. As a frequent flier, this was the very last time myself and my family will be using Ryanunfair!"
Pros: "On time Pleasant cabin crew Fast Track"
Pros: "Arrived 25 minutes ahead of schedule"
Pros: "1 star given for food & entertainment only because no N/A rating option, first time to use Ryanair, better experience than expected, will not hesitate to use again, thank you"
Cons: "No problem with flight"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "The delay no information why Struggling to find room for your bags when you have paid for luggage Staff where rude when you asked questions why we are late why no room for bags"
Pros: "Can't argue about price Planes were within 20 minutes of expected arrival time"
Cons: "Slow slow slow boarding, took forever. Too many people with big carry on bags that they were unable to stow, holding up the entire aisle. It was an evening flight and the lights were dimmed, but then the crew started blaring loud dance music before selling scratch cards: seriously annoyed the majority of the plane that was sleeping!"
Pros: "flight dayed after boarding. comfortable for an ecomomy flight . no food or drinks purchesed .no entertainment on short haul flighs. overall value on a budget"
Cons: "The female staff member at the gate was extremely loud and rude and tried to charge £50 to get a luggage bag put into the hold after her colleague had approached and offered this service to my friend. She was extremely embarrassed and offended as the staff member insisted that she place the item into a bag measure. The interaction was unnecessary and unwelcome as my friend had not sked for the kind gesture made by the first staff member. As we were seated in the back row, we were subjected to the raucous behaviour of two of the cabin crew members throughout the entire flight which included discussing particular passengers on the flight including their seat numbers and their personal 'differences' with other cabin crew members whom they would be flying with today! The behaviour of the male and female crew members, both of whom appeared to be American, was nothing short of embarrassing for Ryanair and utterly unprofessional, even during service the couple appeared oblivious to the passengers as they carried on in their interactions with each other. It appeared that the only person who was actually working was the attendant at the front of the plane who I believe may have been the flight manager. A fellow passenger even commented that the couple must have been smoking something before the flight to explain this behaviour. Having flown with Ryanair on many occasions and having recommended them to friends and family in the past, we were bitterly disappointed with both these issues and would suggest that they re-examine their customer care!!"
Pros: "The crisps are fab!!"
Cons: "Slightly delayed on way out"
Pros: "Seemed organised"
Pros: "Good flight out"
Cons: "A shame there was an hours delay on return journey with no information given"
