Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "On time, clean on the plane."
Cons: "Air line was fine but there was a big queue for security for everyone at the airport, was slow going through there, probably took at least half an hour. Only got to gate just before closing as did other passengers on the flight. A member of staff near the gate was impatiently telling people to hurry up but we could n't help being delayed at the security check."
Cons: "Timing being more accurate"
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."
Pros: "On time ,staff great"
Cons: "Maybe free beer ??? But know ,all sound"
Pros: "Crew were lovely and happy and kept us abreast of the problems that caused a delay in departure."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. I find flying uncomfortable so the seat was as comfortable as it could be."
Cons: "I wish they had a foot rest. Slightly elevated legs gives more comfort. But this a wish ( unlikely to be fulfilled) as I’m living in the real world : ). The process of check in took a while"
Cons: "takeoff and landing weren’t very comfortable"
Cons: "Luggage payment check in and boarding is too slow and inefficient"
Cons: "Too many delays with a lot of miss information"
Cons: "Boarding at gate 43 at Berlin was very bad. Encouraged to go to gate very early. The gate area wasn’t pleasant. Once checked in through the gate we had to stand in a cramped fenced off area for more than 30 mins Seating on aeroplane cramped Everything else was good."
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"
Pros: "All went fine. Staff friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seating is cramped, and I’m under 5 ft 2 inches."
Cons: "Being delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "One time"
Cons: "Cattle car boarding. But expected. Luton airport is confusing for transport to London"
Cons: "Delayed for 90 minutes"
Cons: "Huge lines at baggage drop when we arrived 2 hours ahead of flight, for domestic flight in Germany. Barely made it on board due to the long lines. Then plane stood on runway without power for 45 minutes, and delayed us by that much time. Arrived in Munich, our checked luggage was lost. Personnel stated it takes at least 3 days to be sent after us. Terrible for a domestic flight. Separately, easyJet mobile app wouldn’t let my wife download boarding pass and security didn’t accept her check-in. App is useless as a result."
Pros: "Didn’t die"
Cons: "Hour late Packed like cattle into waiting line Had to walk 10 miles to baggage claim"
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: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Long lines, long delay, non comfortable seats, no entertainment"
Pros: "The staff at baggage check in were gracious."
Cons: "Concur with the comments on the ruckus at the gate. Can’t comment on food or entertainment."
Pros: "The flight was fine and safe"
Cons: "The flight hour since we spent time in the small unconvinient airport. If the flight was one hour later i would be able to sleep in zh and come with the train"
Pros: "Empty seat next to me. Arrived a few minutes early. Looked like a new plane: was Austrian registered which is new for EZY (thank you Brexit)"
Cons: "Boarding process always feels more irritating than it should."
Pros: "We arrived 25 minutes before. Great flight and crew."
Pros: "Short flight but was fine"
Cons: "It was cancelled and we were left to book alternative flights and hotels."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster. We just stood in line like sardines for an hour. The other issue was bags. They wouldn't let me buy bag vouchers online because I had checked in. Something they don't tell you until after and wouldn't even let me buy for my return flight a week away. So I had to pay 200 euros extra for bags (more than 1/4 of my flight cost.) plus Emirates, my first flight said the bags were free because international travel. It is a failing of kayak not to fix this issue and I regret using this service. Either kayak needs to figure out a way to warn you or they should cancel using this rude, incompetent airline."
Cons: "Seats don't recline"
Pros: "Easy boarding and friendly staff Left BRS 30min late but arrived FAO on time! Tail winds"
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 with kids was difficult."
Pros: "At least they are consistent"
Cons: "I take this flight every week. 1/5 are on time"
Cons: "Flight due at 1550. At 1500 boards said now boarding. The plane hadn't even landed! Kept waiting over an hour in airless crowded room with no seats. Silly notices about wonderful easyJet service on screen added to insult. Eventually took off 1625. Crew said sorry for 10 minute delay - actually 35 minutes."
Pros: "Price, staff, safety.."
Cons: "1h late"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Told that you could not bring your purse and carry on"
Pros: "We were delayed but the flight was pleasant and they kept us in the know. Very important. Staff was friendly and courteous on our short flight. Checking in and the bag collect all went easily. If fly them again."
Cons: "Keep an eye on costs. You pay for everything. So be aware. But it was not an issue."
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "When boarding, they call out speedy boating holders, they forgot to call out families with children's"
Cons: "Not allowed a small handbag had to put in hand luggage case"
Pros: "On time. Boarding was smooth, seat was comfortable, pilot pointed out interesting landmarks."
Cons: "Not easyJet's fault of course, but the immigration at Tel Aviv airport was an absolute mess. It took over an hour to be processed and there was no order in the queue. At one point a scuffle broke out between some people in the queue and another time the lady next to me fainted. There was no one managing the queues. This is not easyJet's fault, but the fault of the Israeli immigration service, but perhaps easyJet could make representation on behalf of passengers to the Israeli immigration people."
Cons: "Volume of inflight announcements excruciatingly loud....always is on easyjet I average 8 to 10 flights per annum. Heavy footed flight hostesses continuously clumping up and down the aisle...extremely annoying."
Pros: "Cheap efficient and comfortable"
Cons: "Some very noisy Swiss kids in the back of the plane with me"
Pros: "Flight stood on time"
Cons: "Bad web site, it misleaded me so I had to add 44 per each bug in the check in desk."
Pros: "Staff and crew were accommodating and nice."
Cons: "When we arrived at the airport the departures monitor did not list our flight for 10:15! They had another flight that was listed for 10:55. Ended up going to 3 different gates to finally find 2 agents that then walked us to the final gate. We then ended up waiting for another 30 minutes before boarding a bus that drove us 10 minutes to a completely different part of the airport where our plane was waiting. We then waited another 45 before we took off. Staff was very nice and could tell they were stressed but at least they didn't make it any worse."
Pros: "I had an accident (fractured my shoulder). Staff very helpful both with me and my husband."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more 1.5 hrs without any compensation whatsoever. The flight was a late one that was supposed to take off at 9:40 and land at 10:10. Instead we landed at Heathrow at almost 12am. The walk from the plane to the baggage collection was approx. a 15min walk which is too long for such a ridiculously delayed flight and then when I did arrive at the baggage area, my luggage did not arrive until 5-10mins later. I then had to travel to the south terminal of gatwick to get a train. By the time I reached the train station it was already past 12:30am and the train to London bridge that I usually take was no longer running. The only option I had was to take a train into the city then take a night bus all the way home or take a taxi. So I took a tax costing me more than double the amount I would have paid taking train home. This was without any sort of compensation or real explanation for the cause of delay. This is the second time I have taken an easyjet flight from Basel and it has been delayed. I am highly dissatisfied with the overall journey. As a note, the company should consider having blankets on deck for the evening flights in the winter when it is cold. I asked for one and there wasn't even one on deck."
Cons: "Only one piece of luggege was taken too far - your crew did not allow people to carry their purse to the cabin. I had to put my purse in my carry on and go through the flight without very necessary things for my comfort. Needless to say I could not buy anything (food, duty free) on the plain... Very annoying experience!!!"
Pros: "Arrived before time"
"The flight was delayed for almost two hours. We had to wait in the bus before boarding for 30’."
"I voli sono sempre in ritardo."
Pros: "On time"

Cons: "No kosher food."
Pros: "On time, cabin crew, ease of boarding and amount of bags I could take with Priority Boarding"
Cons: "My seat hadn't been cleaned prooerly before I got there and if I hadn't done it myself, I would have someone else's chocolate all over the seat of my trousers. Also, the bathroom floors were really gross, to the point I had to roll uo the legs of my trousers so they didn't get wet when I needed to use the toilet."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No terminal connection"
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
Pros: "The flight was overbooked so they took my wife of the flight"
Pros: "There wasn't any delays, perfect landing"
Pros: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Cons: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Pros: "Maybe the food selection and the price of it."
Cons: "I paid priority still wasnt able to board early and had to put my only bag under the seat."
Pros: "The staff - friendly, polite,, helpful and a nice uniform! No silly uncomfortable and unsuitable as in some airlines. Reasonably clean. Good price for a glass of wine and pac of dry fruit."
Cons: "Unable to understand tanoi messages - mumbling & too fast. Could not make out most of what staff said including why there was an hour's delay and safety procedures. If i were to bring an oversized and too heavy handluggage on board no doubt I wouldn't get away with it ! However the number of large and heavy bags passengers brought on board last night was ridiculous . It was a real struggle for people to find lockers for.their bags. Some people had quite a few. Delays take off and creates unnecessary chaos. Couldn't understand why I had to pay to check in online, obviously missed that when bookrd. Although I recall reading that it will cost if you check in the airport- so most likely my error. No facility or button to print boarding pass once checked in. No contact us button - I would like to change seat I booked for return but cannot see how to do this on line."
Pros: "Purchased priority boarding for a change which was nice to be able to not have to jump in the queue quickly. Boarding was fine and the crew were very friendly and professional. The extra legroom seats over the wing provided a good extra space."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane was not good, the carpets were fraying and the seats were old and tired. The seats were positioned too upright and there was no option to recline the seat so it was a very straight seat for 2hrs on the flight."
Pros: "The people are very rude no cooperation"
Cons: "The crew was very rude"
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Black group seemed to be singled out for more than one bag hand luggage but others were not. They were the only black group on the plane. Others let through with more bags 1ith no question."
Cons: "So cheap."
Cons: "There was a mix up and the Wizz Air website did not work. Therefore, I couldn't check in a get my seats booked. I also could not prepay for my luggage so they overcharged me at the airport and had an attitude about it. My luggage was given three different prices quotes. I am very upset their website didn't work and they ripped me off at the airport."
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."
Pros: "Everyone was really friendly and accommodating to my needs"
Cons: "40 minutes late taking off - sitting on the plane"
Pros: "I was lucky to be seated next to the emergency door so I had a very comfortable seat. Also, the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The flight departed around half an hour late."
Pros: "It was quite good at boarding, quick and efficient (from/to)."
Cons: "So noisy flight. I have never flown before in a such a noisy flight. Totally nightmare! Kids screaming and yelling and parents couldn't handle the situation all passengers were looking. Crew didn't ask if they need any help.."
Cons: "It was a full plane ride but they didn't seem to be boarding on time? After checking in we scanned our passports using the machines and then we were in what I thought was the boarding area so we relaxed and waited by the screens in a coffee shop. But when our flight gate was announced there was another passport control to get into those gates with a big line which threatened to delay our boarding. There wasn't enough room for everyone to put their bags in the overhead locker which meant there were even more delays and it felt a bit rushed to get off. When we arrived I was queuing down the stairs to get to the queue for passport control which took about 45-60 minutes to get through with no toilets. I was also charged 40 euros per person for not checking in and printing the boarding pass which is my fault, but the charges do seem excessive."
Pros: "The crew in the plane"
Cons: "The quality of service in the boarding, Modified types of cabine bags, practically you have to bring one change of clothes an nothing else in order to fit for the standards of the "small cabine luggage" . The boarding crew was very rude"
Pros: "Flight was on time unlike outward trip which was just under 2 hrs late"
Cons: "Very rude boarding staff on ground. Tried to charge me for the hand luggage but did put a small luggage sticker on when I didn't respond. Seats do not recline so most people slept on the pull down tray as a pillow."
Pros: "the flight to and from liverpool was for me flawless easy quick boarding punctual and good plane and journey ....others complain about the baggage charges but if you read the policy and take heed of the rules then you won’t go wrong"
Cons: "seats could be a bit more comfy"
Pros: "Horrible company never book with them"
Cons: "No hand luggage Normal luggage is the most expensive in the market ! No customer services ! Do ur self a fav and don't book it"
Pros: "The journey took less than it supposed to. Amazing service"
Cons: "Basic flight. Rude crew and late flight"
Cons: "The application doesn't allow to add carrier bag check in and we paid high fee in the airport"
Pros: "I like the bubbly upbeat attitude of the flight attendants interacting excellently in English and other languages and also how they dealt with an angry passenger."
Pros: "Brand new planes - on board crew was pleasant and the flights were smooth and on time."
Cons: "Ridiculous size restrictions on carry-on. If you can pack your clothes in a wallet, then you should be able to carry on at no cost. Only the smallest of bags will meet the "free" requirement. Website is awful to attempt to online check in. Crazy that they charge for check in at the airport if you cannot get their site to work. Customer service phone call also costs a quid a minute. It's almost as if they are proud that they screw you if you encounter any difficulty or you've made a mistake in the complicated boarding pass emailing procedure."
Pros: "Crew were average"
Cons: "Everything was a disaster. Late and very uncomfortable"
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding and getting off the plane via bus"
Pros: "The don't say the truth"
Pros: "The seats are big enough even though they do not lay back BETTER than British Airways it really is !"
Cons: "The flight attendant needs to be more friendly and clear speaking in English language"
Pros: "Luggage restrictions make people be more aware of space, which turns into less fighting for overhead space and faster boarding."
Cons: "I still struggle with any airline that doesn't give water for free. I also sat in an exit row and no one from the crew even talked to me at all to see if I understood my duties."
