Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent professional and friendly. They were also very patient. The best part of the trip."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people on other flights with Lufthansa complain bitterly about the food. It has gone down hill. People should not be dreaming of Virgin Atlantic food while on a flight with Lufthansa!"
Pros: "La atención de la tripulación es la mejor que he visto. El servicio de alimentación es muy bueno."
Cons: "I could not check in because the system cannot link my flight legs and as such it considered that I’m going to Europe although I’m just transiting in Europe. So it required a visa which I don’t have."
Pros: "The take off and landing was peaceful and on time"
Cons: "I didn’t like changing boarding gate three times. The crew member was poor overall including the one providing service I must say."
Pros: "Airplanes, crew, entertainment on Lufthansa airplanes"
Cons: "Leaving Frankfort on-time"
Pros: "Crew was awful. Grumpy and not friendly. They hate their customers especially children."
Cons: "This was my worst experience on any Lufthansa flights. Worst ever!"
Pros: "More space for the kids!!"
Cons: "Space is limited even for a small built person. Too crowded considering long the travel time"
Cons: "Yo no pude viajar y no tube ni siquiera una remuneración un empleado de luftansa me dijo que no podía viajar Ali mejor por que no le simpatize y le quedó sin viajar y perdiendo dinero tiempo"
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "Entertainment was ok."
Cons: "I was called the night before saying our flight was overbooked will you change flights for 300.00 dollars each. We needed to get home so we turned their offer down. The day of the flight our connection flight was delayed we were told someone would escort several of the passengers from Lufthansa to the connection with United no one was there. Several of us ran to where the flight gate was but the plane already left. It turns out other people were also called and turned down United’s offer. So the question is since our flight was purposely overbooked did United take advantage of our situation and just leave and cause all of us great pain and duress with no compensation for all of our inconvenience."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was awesome!"
Cons: "I got bit by bugs. I’ve never experienced something like that on a flight."
Cons: "I was rebooked onto LU 1203 from Basel to Frankfurt from LU 1201 without notification. Probably because Flight LU 426"
Cons: "I didn’t like selection on movies"
Pros: "Food was very good"
Cons: "Boarding process in Frankfurt was horrible, confusing, uncoordinated, lack of clear instructions offered by crew."
Pros: "We were traveling to cancun, the best part is we picked up our bags just in our final destination."
Pros: "Nothing this was a nightmare."
Cons: "We missed our connected flight because or flight was delayed... this does not make any sense. If the flight is delayed, there should be proper high priority check in and bus transport implemented so we arrive at our gate on time. Me and the 2 other passengers had zero chance to arrive on time and were at a loss of breath. And i paid for my selected seats to which i am asking for a refund because what happened was unacceptable. When we addressed our concern, the lufthansa employee told us that u cannot have buses for all the passengers in a situation of a delay.... unacceptable.... how is this the client's fault to miss a flight due to a delay?"
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and many passengers were as well. Really commend cabin crew for their excellent work on a full flight."
Cons: "A bit cramped and I really didn't like the people in front of me who reclined in coach. The cabin crew got them to put up their seats for the food service, but otherwise there was nothing they could do. Can't we just tell people that coach doesn't have the room to recline. Also, you guys are German, can't we at least board by rows?"
Cons: "Beware. Frankfort to Paris A321 Business class is coach with an empty middle seat. Uncomfortable even for a short flight. Very disappointing following excellentvbusiness class on first leg of trip Orlando-Frankfort"
Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."
Cons: "Charged $200 for extra bag after a phone customer service representative confirmed it was only $100 at the airport"
Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."
Cons: "Rude staff and poor connection management. Airport sucks."
Pros: "I liked how smooth the boarding was handled. The flight attendants where polite and helpful. A very comfortable flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "2 hours delayed in Munich"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "The food, the staff, the plane"
Cons: "Unfortunately my movie screen wouldnt work which bummed me out for the long flight ☹"
Pros: "Crew are very helpful, but some how looked unorganized"
Cons: "Complete unorganization during boarding. Not enough staff. Plane is small and no entertainment for a 4:30 out trip."
Pros: "Only best part of Lufthansa is newer planes. Smooth rides. However, I don't think they can count on their customers base only on one positive for long run."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Pros: "The 747 is a big plane. Each seat had a full entertainment system in the back of the seat ahead. Seats actually reclined! Cannot recommend cabin crew highly enough. Efficient, polite, professional."
Cons: "I cannot understand why any airline continues to board forward to aft, forcing people with just a backpack to stack up behind others, allowed to bring obscenely over-sized carry-on bags, wrestling to get their sea chests into the overhead bins. Seat upholstery could have been better for such a long flight. I have "asnahtfuL" permanently embossed on my butt. 747 is an aging craft and this plane had disappointing response to turbulence."
Pros: "I paid an additional fee for a seat with more legroom....a great investment! Also, crew members were very attentive and courteous."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"
Cons: "The delay after boarding in Lisbon"
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late!"
Pros: "Ouldn't have been better Good choice of movies Food was fine"
Pros: "Love to be in the air... any flight"
Cons: "Price... When I found this flight it was under $500. As I waited for my check to be deposited the price went up nearly $500 as if it was programmed to go up if I didn't take book it the first time. From that point on, my flight was the highest priced flight np matter where I looked, my dates were the highest priced. Not happy. And my charges were more than the flight. How can that be fair. $400 flight $500 fee??? WTF??? But I needed the flight. I feel like I was screwed."
Pros: "With this being my first flight to and from Europe from the USA I found the airline, overall, very comfortable and run by a friendly staff. The on flight meals and drinks were delicious and the entertainment selection was much larger than I expected. I hope to use this airline company again in the future."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and varied."
Cons: "We were significantly delayed on take-off, landing, and taxi to our gate, and the staff was very rude about the whole ordeal. One flight attended shouted at us over the intercom several times. I won't be flying Lufthansa again. The food was inedible and the seats were horrible."
Pros: "I am trying to figure out the difference between Premium Economy and Economy. Looks like the seats are a bit wider, but the meals are just about the same. We waited 45 minutes a Newark for a Gate, but that is not the fault of the airline or the crew"
Pros: "The hot towels twice were refreshing. Great selection of movies and documentaries. Also liked that the crew came through with water several times without me asking."
Cons: "The touch screen for my television didn't always work the first or second time I tried to close a window or pause a movie."
Cons: "The flight was canceled because of terrible engine maintenance problem. After leaving the aeroplane no information or structured assistance was given. If I did not have roaming and would have called to re route I would have been possibly stranded in Berlin TEGEL for more than a day."
Cons: "Flight may have been overbooked. Very confusing boarding/seating arrangements."
Pros: "The staff were great. Food (sandwiches) and drink were included in the service. Music entertainment was included at no extra charge."
Cons: "All good. United and USA domestic carriers need to learn what to do from lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything was great, from a complimentary checked bag to plentiful drinks and entertainment choices. Plus the seat backs recline and the seat pushes out so you're extra comfortable on long flights."
Cons: "I will never fly Lufthansa again anywhere"
"Great flight Will go again!"
Cons: "Friendlier crews"
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."

Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Terrible boarding after 2 hours."
Pros: "Crew excellent, really looked after a single mum who's very young son kicked off on take off. Very helpful, always friendly. Pilots kept us updated at regular intervals."

Cons: "Baggage reclaim very slow"
Cons: "Last flight of the night always running late"
Pros: "Nothing much every other plane is more comfortable."
Cons: "We were five people with five carry-on lugages and five small individual bags. The people in boarding tried to charge us €76 for each one of the bags for a total of €380 extra. We managed to put three of those bags inside our suitcases but we were still charged for two very small bags €152."

Cons: "It could have been on time."
Pros: "Crew good and flight on time"
Cons: "Food options more for vegans."

Cons: "Very slow baggage reclaim at Bristol Airport"
Cons: "The plane was late and we were all crammed into a tiny area whilst we waited to board. We got on straight after the previous passengers disembarked so the plane had not been cleaned well and the whole flight was uncomfortable as it was so hot. The staff were rude in the check in at the Basel airport"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding zero food and drink"
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient. Pilots got us there effectively. We left on time and arrived early. All good."

Pros: "One time"

Cons: "Terrible check in / bag drop, long queues, no smiles from staff, jobs worthy- go by another airline"
Pros: "We got to our destination, crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Delayed flight by an hour, airplane smelled like body odour as we boarded. Leg room was insufficient (5ft 11, not a huge traveller). Cramped bus to get on aircraft, overpriced food and drink so did not buy any."
Pros: "Very quick and pleasant journey"
Cons: "Nothing all good"
Pros: "The crew were great. The waiting rooms in Basel euroairport were good"
Cons: "A 7am flight with a two hour delay so we got up at 4am for nothing. The email woke us at 4am and said we must still check in at the same time. Once boarded we had a further delay of half an hour. The queues were quick at Basel but dreadful at passport control at Gatwick. Presumably because were were so late. Meant we had to run and stress ourselves to get next transport. We are too old for all that. If not for all that I would have been saying what a great flight"
Pros: "Staff were great at accommodating us. Passengers also. Eventually I was able to get my twin girls to sit together so they kept each other's spirits up."
Cons: "EasyJet website failed to allow us to checkin my wife's itinnery meaning we had to queue for boarding passes, despite having no luggage to check only to find out the flight was oversold and at least one of us was on standby. Fortunately, we all got a seat in the end, but my family of 5 was scattered all over the plane, with 3 of us in the exit isle, which would have been great if our kids weren't all < 12."
Pros: "The charges for baggage and seat choice is annoying. I understand if you paying dirt cheap (under let’s say ~50 GBP per flight) but if I’m already paying 330 GBP round trip, I should be able to bring a back pack and a carry on suitcase without having to cost extra!"
Cons: "Baggage and seating fees. Also, cost for even drinks?"
Cons: "More than 60 min delay!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "No information, deley after deley and no reps or updates."
Pros: "The flight was fine and safe"

Cons: "Boarding process always feels more irritating than it should."
Pros: "Very helpful friendly staff would definitely be using them again"
Cons: "I liked the ease of use on the website,once I arrived there friendly staff from start to finish which helped the flight go by so much better"
Pros: "As always good service with EasyJet, ignore all the extras they try and tempt you with it’s a plane with seats I just want to get there in one piece I’m not worried about boarding first I’d rather be in the bar ! or extra legroom either the plane will still be there when I arrive"
Cons: "Some of your flight staff need to cheer up a bit at times , why when you are already ripping us off for a small can of beer for £4.50 it’s warm at least chill it for that price , why is it as soon as the plane stops people have to grab their luggage first and block up the aisles your not going to get there any quicker"
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite"
Cons: "Boarding process was an absolute mess."
Pros: "Fast boarding (at extra cost) Good value tickets Online check in and boarding pass printing"

Pros: "No problems at all"
Pros: "Plane was OK for a low cost"
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that despite carrrying a luggage that fit the specs I was forced to check it because the overhead space was full. When I boarded I realized that there was plenty of space. In fact on the space over our heads (row14) there was space throughout the flight"
Cons: "Boarding halfway through was delayed, had to wait on the ground at Bristol for some unknown ground staff person to turn up before we could disembark"
Pros: "The crew were amazing, and had a lot to deal with,"
Cons: "That we late, but it was understandable, could have explained why whilst waiting"
Pros: "We were kept well informed about the delay. Appreciated the captain coming out to explain very quickly what the problem was."
Cons: "Thought I'd got a window seat at the back instead very claustrophobic seat with no view."
Cons: "Drink /food trolley didn't make it to row 18 during the flight"
Cons: "the Madrid - Bristol connection is a mess. Grossly delayed on the way up and down, which in the case of a night flight can let you stranded in the airport to wait for the next bus to the southwest for a couple of hours, like it happened to me."
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "When boarding, they call out speedy boating holders, they forgot to call out families with children's"
Pros: "Cheap efficient and comfortable"
Cons: "Some very noisy Swiss kids in the back of the plane with me"

Cons: "smile it helps"
Pros: "The flight was on time and direct."
Cons: "Ryan Air is like a city bus for air travel. There are no luxuries. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Really rude staff member getting people through to plane. Food I ordered came to me as something totally different because they had run out of what I ordered they didn’t ask me if I wanted it instead so had to refuse it as I can’t eat cheese so I ended up going without."
Pros: "Was reasonably on time"
Cons: "Lagguage took for ever to come out."
Cons: "Very unorganised, one person checking in luggage, long queues, two flights mixed together. The boarding gate was really badly organised, passengers being held in a very small space to wait for a bus, the buses were late. Priority boarding wasn’t being checked so everyone was being sent through into the holding space which was about 3 metres by 7 metres standing room only. The plane was late."
Pros: "Flight got me home..."
Cons: "Tatty magazine/menu that was passed round passengers, unclear cabin baggage sizing and almost made to pay extra fee for something that fit!"
Cons: "Extremely outdated and old planes... they are goofy and don’t feel safe"
Pros: "Great to have cheap flights so must be remembered"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, stuck in hot bus on tarmac."
Pros: "Clean, comfy, practical. Just as you expect of low cost flight."
Cons: "Staff were tired and although not rude looked like they'd had enough."
Pros: "The frew was nice"
Cons: "When I made the reservation, I paid 20 Euro for 1 suitcase (20 kg.), but was surprised to realize that the payment was not valid for the whole trip (but only for one flight). I had to pay 40 Euro for the flight back. It could be helpful if you'd clarify this as part of the reservation process."
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Width of seats was far to small, the seats covers are dated and gruby, the queing process for standard and fast track was a shambles. Checking in was slow due to there being only 1 desk open for a full flight."
Pros: "On time great service"
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"
Pros: "Cabin crew very good, lovely flights out and back but food sparse. Lots in the in flight magazine but seemingly little on board. I was v hungry!! Mr O'Leary, love the cheap flights and booking system fine but you could make more money from better food options. Pity."
Cons: "Much waiting in line for most of an hour bofore gate opens and incredibly slow inflight food service"
Pros: "Short and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Setting off time delayed by 40 minutes"
Pros: "Crew very friendly, helpful and professional."
Cons: "The one and a half hour delay in taking off, especially the part where we were made to wait outside in the rain for about 10 minutes before being allowed to board. (This is not to reflect in any way on the cabin crew, who were wonderful)"
Cons: "Huge delay as usual"
Cons: "3 hours delay no assistance 1 hour queue to leave registered luggage, paid separately, among screaming children, hot and nervous people"
Cons: "Flight delayed, so usual knock on effect with lifts, people coming to meet."
Cons: "No drinks left hot or cold for whole flight"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "The guy who was checking us in mumbles the entire time. Couldn’t understand a word he was saying and why we were delayed 50 mins. There was supposed to be an open seat next to me and I even paid for priority but someone got their friend to sit next to them and she took the entire arm rest that she didn’t pay for. Overall I didn’t enjoy my time on RyanAir. I will need to looks elsewhere as I don’t think I can ever fly with RyanAir ever again."
Cons: "We were not told the reason for the delay. We were not given an estimate of the length of the delay. No update information was given. We all understand there can be problems; but just tell us what they are? Then, we were all called forward to board, but I was still standing 45 minutes later in the queue. Let us wait in (relative) comfort in the terminal (restrooms, drinks, wider seats etc), don't start to board us ridiculously early."
Pros: "On time and fairly quick baggage retrieval. Being able to check-in before you leave UK is very useful."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak and although it does warn about extra charges for baggage, I feel I was duped because I booked for 3 check-in bags at additional cost thinking that would mean for outbound flight and return but once the booking transferred to Last minute on completion it turned out I only had check-in baggage for the outbound flight (different airline) and not for the Ryanair return flight. Ryanair charges more if you book check-in baggage after the original booking so the flights were much more expensive than I had thought. Kayak did not help with this issue. I would not use them again."
Pros: "We managed to arrive."
Cons: "I disliked the lack of information about the delays, the poor facilities and extremely rude staff. It’s understandable that they’ve been working all day, but unfortunately this is the job they chose and I am paying for service of which I should be satisfied with."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and was well organised."
Pros: "Price and punctuality"
Cons: "Families have to pay extra to sit together. Children should automatically be seated with their parents. Basic safeguarding standards should be priority, not making more money out of necessity."
Cons: "Too expensive for what you get. Bad landing! Oh dear"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seating arrangements. It seems all the passengers were separated by purpose. No one set with their spouse."
Pros: "I was able to take my guitar as hand luggage, which is very important. Even though guitars exceed the hand baggage limits, many professionals need to be able to carry on their instruments. Priority boarding is essential."
Cons: "We only received emailed in Greek while we were in the United States and didn’t receive any emailed while we were in Greece prior to our flight to Santorini from Athens. When we went to the airport we were told that we had pay 66 euros per person because we didn’t register online for checkin. We were told that if we didn’t we wouldn’t be let on our flight. This happened with many customers that were inline with us. Terrible flight, would not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "Once boarded it was very smooth"
Cons: "Over 3&a half hours delay was sooooo painful"
Cons: "Priority boarding And disembarkation But had to wait half an hour for the parking people WCP recommended by Ryanair then a 15 Minuit journey to collect the car what a joke This was the only downside of what was a good trip In Poland booked taxi and tours were there waiting for us no waiting around"
Pros: "Lots of interEuropean routes."
Cons: "Online check-in is mandatory but unless I'd checked online I would not have known and been charged £50 at the airport counter during bag drop. This is an unethical cash machine for Ryanair that penalises travellers who might not be computer literate or online - a big brand turnoff."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. Also, most passengers were made to check cabin baggage at the gate, reason given as 'a full flight. but once on The plane, there was many empty seats (6 alone in the two rows around me) and the overhead lockers were about half full."
Cons: "When I was check-in at the airport, the staff in the Basel airport, was so rude. Even though I've done online check in, unable to use online boarding pass. Only said, I have to printing the boarding pass, but I was traveling around country side, so there were no place to printing the ticket. When in the airport , the staff require either online or printing boarding pass, but as my online boarding pass is not working, I said I would like to get boarding pass and willing to pay for it. But she was almost shouting to me and her face looking vey annoyed for doing additional work. I was uncomfortable for her service. And she only said "NEXT TIME!, OK?", her tone was like scold to child. I don't expect either excellence service or big friendly smile, but I paid for ticket and printing, I didn't bagging anything. I really did't understand her attitude, I don't have any reason to heard her shouting voice in the airport after holidays. I was consider never use Ryanair next time, seriously."
Pros: "Ground and flight crew were attentive, polite, and helpful. The price of the flight was unbelievable, excess luggage fees were reasonable. Shuttle into town was efficient and economical."
Pros: "The steward was friendly."
Cons: "Low fare is an illusion. They forced customers to check in carryons that would have been qualified as carryon by other airlines. Any checked in bag cost $35 and there is absolutely no free check in bags. We ended up check in 3 bags for two of us. Service is super slow. In addition, if you are traveling to London, the airport they use is STN which is at least 1 and half hours from the City. There is no Uber available from that airport. Tax cost is $120+. As you can see, no matter how cheap the ticket might seem, it ends up to be very costly, no matter you are talking about money and time. Flight attendant was friendly but the Rome CIA airport service was horrible (that's where they fly out from). You first have to stay in a long slow line to get the check in bag invoice, take it to a payment counter where 3 out of 4 service people were on there phone texting while there is another long and slow line of travelers are waiting to make payment. We almost missed our flight despite the fact we got there 3 hours earlier."
Pros: "I needed a glass of water as soon as I boarded to take some tablets as I was starting to feel unwell. The crew accommodated this immediately and were very pleasent."
Cons: "Why people don't just pay if they want to sit together. It is that way now so go with it rather than main and play chess on the plane, asking people if they will change seats. Sort it out your adults. Surely you can cope for a few hours?"
Cons: "The 1.5 hour delay with no info. We're told that there was a problem that had been affecting the flight all day, they ccould have forewarned us as a matter of courtesy."
Pros: "The flight was on time, I paid the extra for the seat at the front which got priority boarding, and there were empty seats at the front of the plane. I was out of there as soon as the plane landed. Just close your eyes and it will all be over soon."
Cons: "People were lining up 15 minutes before boarding and the boarding process was more like a rugby scrum as everyone piled into the back of the plane. The food was pretty mediocre and not cheap, but there was nothing to purchase in the airport terminal."
Cons: "Packed us in to prepare us for boarding like cattle. The plane landed, unboarded and boarded us so quickly that there was no cleaning between flights. Even the cost savings wasn't that great."
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "Everything is boor"
Cons: "CHAOTIC. Found the Ryanair booking site difficult to log into with my booking number constantly not being recognised. Once I'd booked it was pay, pay, pay for luggage and seats making the flight expensive. Biggest insult was they took my money for a transfer, return email saying it was accepted. A later email saying it was cancelled with no refund of money. A 12 month credit note ( not seen yet ) which I can't use in 12 months. Now feeling ripped off Will not be flying with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Price was good. Staff are good in general but felt that the cabin crew lacked professionalism - a tough job noted however. Overall very happy with the service - please note my comments."
Cons: "Why did I pay for a priority que ? The point being exactly what ? The herding of customers into a cattle gate affair ? Last call 45 mins before the flight. Cheap flight - cheap organised. I note below someone has stated crew were professional and VERY entertaining ...... thatnis not professional I am afraid. A crew that is busy entertaining the passengers is a crew that lacks focus on the primary role of the cabin safety ... Human Factors !"
Cons: "no refundon tickets,since i missed the flight."
Pros: "Price only."
Cons: "Gathering in long queues, not enough room for seating and luggage, stewardesses not really nice and many other remarks."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the pilot landed without any ear discomfort for the three of us as he kept his decent not too quickly"
Cons: "The food supplied by Ryanair is very expensive rubbish"
Cons: "We are done our pre-check online two days before the flight. When we arrived at the airport we were told that it had not been completed and sent to another office. There we had to pay a 45 euro penalty each The boarding took forever. And they were probably the most uncomfortable seats we've ever flown in. We like to save a dollar if possible, but will never fly Ryan air again. Life is too short."
Cons: "Delayed flight , loads of drunks onboard and very noisy"
