Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "They are great at service and care of their passengers. Their staff always go out of their way to make sure of comfort. Loganair seems one of the few to still give a beverage and a snack with purchase of ticket (wonderful). I am super thankful of well trained staff and their knowledge on luggage and sizing on the smaller planes especially when traveling to and from larger planes. I never had any issues with being able to take my backpack on or being asked to check it as it carried my laptop & wallet...unlike other airlines of similar size running to & from SYY."
Cons: "That I could not find any Tunnocks Cream Wafers in a retail store to purchase after only the caramel wafers."
Pros: "Great service. Good food and drinks."
Pros: "great airport with great efficiency (Glasgow) wonderfully polite and friendly ticket agent"
Cons: "We were delayed by over four hours due to weather but still the flight that was supposed to leave after us got out before because they were more concerned about getting that flight out on time than the 20 people who had been waiting for hours. We ultimately got out about six hours late."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "The light attended to help me with problems from prior flight"
Cons: "The propeller plane is noisy and uncomfortable. But it made it to Stornoway. Strong crosswinds made it a tough landing. The pilots did a good job."
Pros: "The staff was reasonably pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was four hours late. There were no announcements so passengers waited in a cold, damp terminal area where there was active construction. The peopeller plane was noisy and there was no storage. They had to check my small bag and then left it on the wet tarmac where my clothes were stained. FLybe is notoriously bad. They certainly lived up to their reputation"

Pros: "Very quick flight :)"
Pros: "crew was super nice"

Cons: "Worst possible gluten-free meal. Other airlines do it better. One CFAN make a sauce to put on chicken - it doesn't have to be boiled or microwave into a piece of rubber, with plain rice and a couple of boiled carrots. This isn't just gluten-free, it's complete allergen-free which is quite different"

Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped. And I am only 70kg."
Pros: "The first plane left without us, so I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport late because our first plane arrived at the airport late, then we were held up because of poor weather. When we arrived at the Dublin airport, we had to run the gauntlet, only to be told our plane had already left- a few minutes early - thanks a lot. I wanted a drink on the plane and had to pay for it- I’ve always had free drinks before."
Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"
Cons: "US pre-entry then told to wait in line until pre-entry area closed. Moved up to general boarding area. Reason for delay kept changing with no ETD announced until 20 min before takeoff. Food voucher was nice"

Pros: "We arrived minutes earlier."

Pros: "The service was wonderful ! I’m handicapped and I was treated very well!"
Pros: "Not much paid for prority boarding but we were bussed to the flight in Faro and this made prority boarding nul and voidboarding"
Pros: "Entertainment system did it work well. Controls were slow and difficult to navigate and graphics were poor. The audio was poor and did not work at all the last 3 hours of the flight."
Cons: "The extra charge for seat selection for an aisle seat added $50 each way (NYC to Dublin and connecting with Munich) which made the cost more than anticipated. This should be more clear when booking, because it was a surprise. It was appreciate to have no charge, however for carry on + one checked bag."
Pros: "Friendly staff with excellent humour, and an efficiently short flight time."
Cons: "No entertainment for a 3 hour flight??"
Pros: "On time, no fuss, got us there"

My tray table was filthy. Had to ask the flight attendant for a wet napkin to clean the tray and my hands."
Pros: "Short and sweet but a very comfortable ride."
Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"
Pros: "Their best was merely adequate."
Cons: "Unlike modern airlines Aer Lingus does NOT let you check in ahead of time. You have to WAIT in line forever with people checking luggage. Also, my flight was an hour late. No reason or apology given. It nearly made me miss my connecting flight"
Cons: "Ability to choose seats ahead of time was not streamlined."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "Not a single thing"
Cons: "British airways canceled our flight, gave no warning, no alternative ticket, flight, or any option in general. We had to book an entirely new flight and had a completely horrible two days of travel just to get back home."
Pros: "Food, movies, snacks"
Pros: "Entertainment and meals make flying comfortable again."
Cons: "Seats are very close together. Glad to be short!"
Cons: "It was supposed to be a British airways flight but it ended up being an aer lingus flight."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "it was too cold, no blankets"
Cons: "Professional staff"
Pros: "Nice crew, fairly comfortable seats. Lots of tv and movie choices."
Cons: "Food was not as good as flight in other direction. Limp and close to expiration. Boarding on this airline is always a rush. Flight is announced and advertised as wifi enabled but impossible to connect, despite multiple tries throughout the twelve hour flight."
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Cons: "Had to go through security twice"
Pros: "open seats were a blessing"
Cons: "food terrible, entertainment very poor for a 10 hour flight - old, boring movies, also the restrooms in the terminal at Dublin were really bad - terrible way to start a long flight"
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew. They were calm, professional and incredibly kind. We had along our 10 month old baby and they were so welcoming and helpful with her. The best crew I've ever interacted with on a flight."
Cons: "Lead turblence"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient as was disembarking, crew were good"
Pros: "The overall price"
Cons: "Waiting in line for boarding to find out the passengers in the plane that had arrived had not disembarked. Passengers (and not just priority) brought more than one bag onto the plane. The overhead stowage was bulging. As a passenger with a foot cast the disembarkation was not the best"
Pros: "Very helpful as I required assistance"
Pros: "Crew were good. Boarding seemed to be good. When we eventually got going the flight was good and very quick (35mins)"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for 1 hour without moving anywhere as there was a discrepancy with the numbers they thought they had and the list (or something). When we were cleared for take off we then had to get in a massive queue before we could leave."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable & flight was good"
Cons: "The airport boarding process was a bit of a faff had to pass through 3 separate check points for passport before being allowed to board, the priority boarding thing is also not worth it.."
Pros: "All but one crew member where excellent. But the one girl. Made it perfectly clear that the passengers where an annoying part of her job not a pleasure. She had a sour face on her all flight. Everyone was talking about her."
Cons: "Seating is always uncomfortable on these short haul flights."
Pros: "Quick flight. However as is usual with Ryanair cabin crew their diction on the intercom giving instructions are appalling. This is a feature of Ryanair. Ask for diction or speech lessons and at least passengers will understand. My kids thought the crew were speaking Polish"
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Delay meant no public transport at London airport."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Being a bit late. Unusual for Ryanair"
Pros: "Fast. That's about it really."
Cons: "More leg room and more comfortable seats also would be nice if the food wasn't extortionate"
Pros: "As good as it can be with Ryanair"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Reasonable price. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Priority boarding didn't really work."
Pros: "The flight was quick, customer service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Checking in online was a nightmare as the site kept freezing, there was a mix up with my priority and cabin baggage, I was told by the webchat team that this had gone through but not on my boarding pass, when I got the the airport the Ryanair staff were extremely rude to us, they sent us to the back of the queue I front of everyone and then told us we would have to pay to take our bags with us, they then had to be out on the hold. When we got back to Birmingham we then had to sit on the plane for around 15 minutes as there was not a slot for us. I spent hours of my 2 day break trying to sort check ins etc, I would never fly with Ryanair again."
Cons: "The problem with random seat allocation is if you pay to sit somewhere then that should be fine, no. Today I was constantly asked if I wouldn’t mind swapping seats so the passenger could be closer to their partner which is always going to be an inferior seat or worse sat in the middle seat. Their random seat allocation therefore can inconvenience seat paying passengers not a quality experience."
Cons: "The flight attendant was actually reading from the shopping catalogue.. it was actually annoying and I couldn’t relax during the flight."
Pros: "Flight on time, luggage handling ok"
Cons: "The long walk to and from the plane. The stupid trail down the steps into the cold and rain, across the tarmac then back up the steps into the plane. At Birmingham airport. Fine at Malaga no problem."
Pros: "The "sales" gets a little old. Duty free, lotto tickets, food, drink...…."
Pros: "Boarding was straight forward and fast."
Cons: "Very basic comfort. Less leg room."
Pros: "The only thing good with this flight was the time keeping."
Cons: "The first time travelled with Ryanair and the last.Seating uncomfortable, back rest to upright.Difficulty understanding the crews public announcing over tannoy system.Allocation of seats diabolical. Not a lot of advantage being a priority passenger from non priority. Suggest implement similar procedures to jet2. Would learn a lot."
Pros: "Flights ran to time"
Cons: "Some passengers were taking phone calls when the safety demonstration was being done."
Cons: "One hour late departure insufficient information Had to be bussed to plane negating any value for paying for priority Parked off stand at Birmingham had to use steps from plane and into terminal wife has arthritis and can’t carry bags I had to carry two bags down steps unable to use handrail really quite dangerous no apology re delay"
Pros: "Quicker flight late at night"
Cons: "Waiting on bus to terminal Almost missed last train."
Cons: "Staff were quite rude and didn't spend time explaining the delay we were having in English"
Pros: "Honestly nothing, apart from welcome smile from crew..."
Cons: "dirty, overcrowded, seats even closer in my opinion (Boening 737-800), broken window cover, bad smell"
Pros: "You get what you pay for. No issues"
Cons: "The queue on the tarmac waiting to board but I realise they are trying to keep to schedule"
Pros: "Once the aircraft arrived the boarding and take off were fairly quick. The flight itself self was extremely quick and there was no hassle. Quite impressed with that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed initially with 2 hours. There was no notification by the airport. After 2 hours there was another hpur delay. Again there was no notification. We and the other passengers had to constantly last to the gatw screen to see any updates. We were left in the dark until the very moment we started boarding."
Pros: "Nothing -apart from the fact I eventually got to the destination I needed the same day!!"
Cons: "The delays. The lack of information. It became obvious we were not going to leave on time. But No announcement. nobody told us of the delay - or why. Then the conflicting information. Technical problems. Flight cancelled. Go to Ryan air deal to organise your own forward travel. Then - once back through Police & customs. No - flight going to happen!!! I have more to say about service & crew - but no space"
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."
Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "The delay in boarding particularly as no explanation was given."
Pros: "Uncomplicated flying."
Cons: "I planned to eat on the plane so bought nothing onboard with me. By the time the cart got to me there was no food left. I had no option but to buy some crackers for my meal. The moral of the story: buy food to take with you!"
Pros: "Was quick and easy"
Pros: "For the price what is there to complain about."
Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Sitting with a stranger"
Cons: "Don’t like the underhand Ryanair pricing"
Pros: "Most parts were as to be expected"
Cons: "Unavoidable Weather caused diversion to Manchester. Like all airlines, Ryanair are unable to perform to expectations, and promises made (Low priority to get off plane into terminal comp to planes that arrived after us.No busses to Birmingham had been arranged for onward travel of passengers.) Etc."
Pros: "This airline sucks"
Pros: "We landed 10 minutes earlier than expected"
Cons: "We paid £80 a person which is over double what it costs us to fly there with vueling on less notice They then moved the boarding location after everyone had lined up causing us to loose out place in the queue They made us check our cabin bags which we were warned could happen but is never appreciated The seats were uncomfortable and very cramped for leg room The touched down while not totally their control was very harsh and a panel over the engine actually slid open on touch down which is a little concerning There was also a 20 minute delay taking off"
Pros: "It was nearly on time. Only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Pilot wasn't keen on communicating with us poor passengers. Where were we flying? What speed? What were we passing over? Perhaps that information would cost extra."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and helpful on board I didn’t have any food and there wasn’t any entertainment"
Cons: "I didn’t like that there was absolutely nobody at the airport to answer any questions or just guide you in the right direction"
Pros: "Nothing, taxi plane, expectations not high"
Cons: "Cramped seating, flight delay, time waiting at the boarding gate."
Cons: "If RyanAir reads these reviews can I make a small suggestion that would make a big difference? The plastic cups provided with drinks are tall and narrow making them unstable inflight.Simply changing to a more squat shape would increase passenger comfort."
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: "I sat in the front row and had plenty of leg room. A crew member kindly switched my middle seat for his window seat for which I was very grateful."
Cons: "Ryanair did not offer any food or beverage for "free" (i.e., included in the price of our ticket). It was a huge hassle to get our boarding passes printed. We needed to do this in order to be spared a €50/person penalty which I think is outrageous. Boarding was a little intense."
Pros: "Ryanair check in staff helped us by handwriting our boarding passes."
Cons: "Checked baggage fees were outrageous. Cabin crew could not control loud druncks from Spanish football fans - loud yelling and screaming up and down aisle for over an hour."
Cons: "Flight delayed again in a weeks time"
Pros: "I love Ryan air prices , my flight was almost on time . Crew very welcoming and helpful , as usual ."
Cons: "For me , don't change Allstate good , thank you ."
