Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight was comfortable however the boarding process was a bit disorganized but I’m pretty sure that was an airport issue"
Cons: "Get rid of the nickel and diming!"
Pros: "Baggage drop informed gave us a heads up of extra charges to additional carry on bags if they need to be placed as hold luggage at gate, so we were able to check them at bag drop and save lots of money!"
Cons: "Flight could have been on time."
Pros: "I couldn't tell you. They were basically non existent."
Cons: "Easy jet lost my bag. For four days. I had to go back to Naples airport and find it myself"
Pros: "The crew very unpolite My reservation was for me and my husband and the gave us separated seats"
Cons: "Quality of service Long lines Very caotic Terrible experience"
Pros: "EasyJet are generally efficient and feel like they have the passenger in mind."
Cons: "Not sitting cooped up in our seats waiting 45 minutes for a slot."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Cons: "3 hours late and very little information. No refreshments provided."
Cons: "Flight overbooked, I got my seat at the very last moment"
Pros: "Efficient No Frills Value For Money"
Cons: "Cramped Seating"
Pros: "On time and nice staff"
Cons: "No vegan options on menu other than crisps......."
Pros: "Great service landed early both ways defo use again"
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding was quick, flight was smooth and arrived 20 minutes early to our destination. I looked ahead on their site and paid a little extra for XL seats, with those you get speedy boarding and can bring a purse or backpack on top of your one rolly-bag carry on - they make it VERY clear on their site that you are only allowed 1 carry on within very specific size measurements. The XL seats were worth it for the leg room and extra small bag."
Cons: "No snack, no entertainment, and a charge for water."
Pros: "What a landing from the pilot. Straight from the aviation textbook."
Cons: "12 min delay."
Pros: "If I could zi would fly from Southend every time"
Pros: "The man at the self check in was really helpful."
Cons: "Baggage check in online and at the desk in the airport makes me really stressed. It is not straight forward, it is complicated and unclear. Every time I fly with Easyjet"
Cons: "Absolute worst experience in 15 years of frequent travel. EasyJet flight was cancelled from Paris to Nice incurring and additional 417 euro flight with Air France and 250 euro TAXI from Toulon to nice. Absolute absurdity as there were no other flights to Nice for 2 days. Easy jet then OVERBOOKED me from Nice to Paris. I had to fly Air France AGAIN, an additional 380 euro and I missed my connecting flight from Paris to jfk costing me an additional $800USD. How is this even allowed? WORST company to have ever existed, they must go out of business, contacting BBB and getting the word out on this disgusting company."
Pros: "Overall Easyjet is an ok airline, I will continue to fly with them, however, small things like paying extra for speedy boarding and then not having a separate line is a real disappointment. Given the option I would pay a the extra to fly with a better airline, however, being from Northern Ireland we are limited to what we can have."
Cons: "Flight left late. Hand luggage bag had to be checked in. I had to go straight to work after I Ianded so didn’t appreciate the extra 20 minutes wait at the luggage carousel. I was told the overhead lockers were full, which they weren’t."
Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "had to wait nearly an hour from departure lounge then on the plane before takeoff. Felt we were being herded like cattle and then left to stew in a holding room before allowed access to plane."
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 2 hours (19.05 flight)... Even the 20.30 flight left before us! Zero communication from ground staff, no food vouchers. Extremely poor!"
Pros: "Overall plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "Big delay causing me terrible losses."
Pros: "On time good service Barry Pope"
Pros: "Staff were good. EasyJet kept us informed. There is a high degree of efficiency and you are treated as a paying passenger rather than cattle."
Cons: "Delays seem inevitable with EasyJet on the Belfast route. I can't remember the last time we had one that wasn't delayed by more than half an hour. The scheduled time is longer than any flight has taken, but I think this is actually a realistic approach given the probability of a delay. There is an issue with 2-3 year olds and seat belts - they are not allowed to travel on a parent's lap, but they can wriggle out a lap belt easily and so are unsecured."
Cons: "Long delay of over 2.5 hours. Communication about the delay from the airline was poor. Limited food options at the airport at the hour."
Cons: "Using buses rather than gates to to enter the airport. Is it some kind of saving money with out considering passengers comfort"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline and very little leg room"
Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"
Pros: "Fares were very low, boarding was smooth, several seats were empty."
Cons: "We were told that we could only carry on one item, unless we upgraded to Easyjet plus, but we were not able to upgrade because no seats were available, even though the plane was only ~2/3 full. Our 'extra' items were a knitting bag and a laptop bag, but the checkin agents persuaded us that we would need to check the carry ons anyway, which slowed our departure enough that we missed our bus and had to get a taxi (for 200 pounds). Our flight had plenty of empty seats, and there was more than enough room for us to have had our carryons and personal items (which I would have been willing to pay the upgrade fee for, as the total price would still have been competitive."
Pros: "Spacious seats for an airplane! And the takeoff and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "Being from the US, we weren't familiar with the boarding process (no gate # until almost time)- but that was our challenge, not anyone else's. we really enjoyed flying Easyjet."
Pros: "Was meant to be a 21.40 flight that was delayed until midnight"
Cons: "Arrived at gatwick after public transport closed with no assistance offered"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, "low fare" price very misleading; crew provided inconsistent and disorganized service--charged some people for snacks, forgot to charge other people--was frustrating."
Cons: "More than 4 hours delayed, very little communication from airline. Terrible customer service. No entertainment or food. Seats are very uncomfortable. Expensive to check a bag. I will not use them again."
Pros: "Shared cab to the station. Great sandwich..swift efficient flight. Easy"
Pros: "Smooth experience from boarding to landing, staff efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Cons: "Lined-up in hallway and jet bridge for 30 minutes before flight The gate attendant fought with two people over EasyJet's strict 1 BAG policy... no purses, no computers. It was sad. No recline in seats No refills of coffee"
Pros: "The check-in/security was very efficient and pain free especially at Gatwick. The return leg flight was delayed, but time was made up and information was good."
Pros: "Nothing. We were not on the flight because the gate closed before we got there. We were delayed because my wife had booked assistance from departure area to gate."
Cons: "We were delayed by Airport assistance for my wife although it was booked well in advance and Easyjet gate closed before we got there despite the fact they were told we were on our way we had to rebook at a cost of €337 single for two persons from Malaga to Belfast."
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "Loved the cheap fare - went off pretty much as expected - big crowds at security in Bristol, paid for express - it seems every little extra is charged for - paid £15 each for an extra legroom seat which also gave us priority boarding and an extra bag, although it wasn't clear if they were being strict about hand luggage or not."
Cons: "We sat in the XL first row - seats don't recline! and everyone trooped past us when boarding and a stiff breeze blew on us through the door. Had to keep our down coats on but then when the door closed and it warmed up we weren't allowed to take it off because it was an emergency exit row and now clutter! So we got a little overheated until at altitude - weird. The coffee was £2.50 for instant! weird."
Pros: "Absolutely no information given by airline staff or airport staff."
Pros: "Everyone was really nice, got us there safely!"
Cons: "very long delay with no real reason given"
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: "It was an hour and a half late going; an hour late returning. Coming back check in staff bothered me about me carry on bag, which were the same I had taken out on Easy Jet."
Pros: "Crew excellent, especially as they dealt with delay due to earlier medical event"
Cons: "Not really. Although pushback delayed, arrival was 10 minutes early"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "The seats are just not comfortable in the slightest. There is no room. No where to put your legs."
Pros: "Crew good."
Cons: "It took a long time to board."
Pros: "Getting here safe"
Cons: "Waiting to broad"
Cons: "The announcements made by the main air steward were mostly unintelligible due to a very strong Spanish accent."
Cons: "Great attractions and clean descending"
Cons: "40min delayed flight"
Pros: "Quick quiet and professional"
Pros: "Left on time got in early"
Cons: "Nothing for the price"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "Rubbish carry on policy and constant sales"
Cons: "Stood in a queue for ages. Got our bags checked and then told that flight in was delayed and once in passengers will deboard first and rhen we will board. No apologies offered. We left late and areived in Dublin late. The trays in front of our seats (all three in our row) were dirty with spilled teas etc and we were not able to use rhem. As for flight and crew and everything else it was ok and nothing special. We felt rushed and were told get a move on quickly."
Pros: "Nothing late again dirty plane not allowed to bring alcohol on which is fair enough but they don’t mind selling you there own"
Cons: "Everything was rubbish"
Pros: "The pilot and safety tannoy is not loud enough"
Pros: "Price and punctually."
Cons: "As mentioned being separated by the “ random computer choice of seats. We were put rows apart both with empty seats either side of us, we fly lots and only Ryanair and Jet2 do this."
Pros: "Staff were very friendly and very patient with difficult passengers!"
Cons: "Plane felt cramps, but it was a low price so to be expected."
Pros: "Keeps to schedule. A high performing low cost airline."
Cons: "Cost of the food and drinks but I’ll still fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "If they don’t speak good English and have heavy accents, why don’t they slow down the announcements, so people have at least a small chance to understand???"
Cons: "Boarding commenced after the given departure time with no sign of a delay on the departure boards. There was no clear guidance for queuing, so the speedy boarding we paid extra for was close to useless, staff then scanned boarding passes without a care for passports. Once on the plane the flight was delayed for 2 hours and only after 45 mins of sitting around waiting for an explanation were we given one by the captain."
Pros: "You get what you pay for, it's a budget airline everything designed tfor you to pay extra"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Delayed , everything is nickel and dime"
Pros: "It took off roughly on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, checking in was annoying (just lots of steps to be done with lots of ppl who don’t travel often and less helpful staff), and the plane smelled odd."
Pros: "Quick efficient flught"
Cons: "Didn’t pay for priority booking as I had my seat prepaid and only one bag . Why would you pay for priority booking?? I think the system could be simpler"
Cons: "Toilets needed a good clean, they also smelled stale"
Pros: "Efficient, good value and on time"
Cons: "Non priority Queue and the fact that my bags were put in the hold."
Pros: "Finding an affordable flight to allow the family to get away for a weeks holiday that would otherwise not be possible."
Cons: "Having the family sitting separately on the flight as we were not able to afford to pay additional money to per book seats. But it was only a 2 hour flight so we coped. Think it would be a good idea if the airline didn’t just assume that because a child is 11 years old they are able to sit away from their parents. My son has additional needs and so although his chronological age is 12 years his developmental age is only 7/8 years so being sat away from his parents was very stressful for him. Maybe asking during booking if any of the party hav s additioonal needs would be a good idea."
Cons: "When check in took place we were kept in a dark,cold,wet & windy covered area for about 10/15 minutes before being allowed to board the plane. This is really unacceptable in this day & age."
Pros: "With Ryanair, you can only really like the price and the people. To be fair though, m the toilet was clean.."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7.30 am, but was still refueling after an earlier flight at that time. In a way it was lucky that it was late; if it had been in time, we would have been queueing on the Stansted tarmac in the rain. As it was, the rain had just stopped while we waited at the foot of the aircraft stairs. We actually took off 45 mins late. The new, additional-cost priority boarding is a joke: almost everyone was a "priority". Several passengers didn't understand the long "priority" queue, so joined it only to be turned away at check-in."
Pros: "Staff were good - even the cabin crew member who was still training was friendly and professional. Landing was incredibly smooth. The pilot also dealt very well with the turbulence and was able to predict it so the seatbelt sign already came on before any trouble."
Cons: "Even by budget airline standards, Ryanair is mediocre at best. The chairs are uncomfortable for a 4 1/2 hour flight - manageable, maybe, for a shorter journey but not anywhere good enough for that length of time. Boarding took an unusually long time and even priority passengers were stood around waiting to get onboard a good 15 minutes or so after already having gotten into the jetway. Not to mention after landing, we were stood over an hour waiting for baggage because, for some reason, four different flights used the same carousel (and presumably only had one team getting baggage off all four planes) despite there being a second one free which I'm sure they could have easily used. Don't have four planes landing near concurrently if you don't have the facilities to deal with it. Ryanair is cheap, yes, but by the time you have to pay ridiculous amounts for things most other airlines consider normal (for starters, you can't even take a full size hand luggage bag on board without priority boarding), it adds up to being less "budget" than it would have been to fly with a higher end airline like British Airways and you'd have to be an idiot to choose Ryanair over a cheaper, higher quality, airline. Honestly, I have no idea how people choose Ryanair more than once in their lifetime."
Pros: "Reasonable cabin bag allowance."
Cons: "Even with priority boarding, kept standing as long time in a freezing tunnel."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Seating was cramped"
Pros: "It’s nice flying into Alicante where often those awful automatic passport machines give way to mails checks so much faster"
Cons: "Birmingham airport is awful the facilities the infrastructure the waiting the queues for security 0/10"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Late departure. Staff herding us like cattle before take off. Smelly cabin."
Pros: "savannah and other staff member who catered for front of airline were just fanstatic.. down to earth really helpful and clearly experienced. really well done. please can they be passed some thanks from me. wayne trueman front row"
Pros: "If you like be herded around like cattle, and having no apology even when your flight is late, then you've come to the right place."
Cons: "Late flight. Family scattered around cabin in different seats. Completely unnecessary."
Pros: "Left on time,arrived early."
Cons: "All the steps to board plane."
Cons: "landing had some turbulence"
Pros: "Simple budget flight. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Unexpected manual checking of bag into hold. I hadn't packed with that in mind and was concerned about breakage and the fact that my bag had no lock. But the bag survived intact."
Pros: "Ryanair gets you there."
Cons: "Carry on luggage put in hold"
Cons: "They left the luggage behind.... LoL"
Cons: "Ground crew went on lunch break causing an hour delay. Seat was dirty. Could not understand what the crew was saying."
Pros: "We had to carry our bags up and down several flights of stairs. Not very friendly to disabled or elderly folks."
Cons: "Delay on departing"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours"
Pros: "Arrived at 5.45, checked in, gone through security by 06.30. Flight delayed by 15 minutes, due to passengers not Ryanair. Arrived 15 minutes early so would have arrived earlier at Palma. Staff seemed friendly. No real complaints."
Cons: "Delayed for a couple of hours, and had run out of most things on the plane."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I chose Ryanair because of their 10kg cabin baggage allowance. They've really improved from my past (and after that I swore I'd never use them again) experience. Really slick."
Cons: "Constant trying to sell you extras."
