Cons: "Border control at EDI. Lanes too long"

Cons: "On time would have been good and longer than 2 minutes to get to the gate after it came up on the board"

Cons: "My flight was delayed which meant I was over an hour late for my connecting travel. Delay kept increasing as I was waiting at Luton airport."

Pros: "Nothing, staff didnt even attempt to help me once i eventually for the gate for easyjet and the gate had closed (due to staff telling me to go to departures after showing that i didnt have a boarding pass)"
Cons: "The lack of help recieved by staff throughout the airport to help me get to the correct gate. After 30 mins of asking different staff where to go and what i needed to do to get on the flight the gate for my flight was then closed which has caused me to pay for an extra flight. Due to this i will be requesting a full refund on the first flight."

Pros: "Pilot got us there in less than an hour after a three hour delay"
Cons: "Three hour delay with no explanation until we were actually on the flight. Only a £3 refreshment voucher. Couldn't hear cabin crew and they rushed through the food service. Looked like they didn't want to be there."

Pros: "No complaints about flight"

Pros: "Staff were polite and friendly. We had a peanut allergy sufferer in the family and they announced this and stopped serving peanuts which was great. Quick and smooth flight and efficient boarding. Security at Bristol was fairly quick. Bit of s queue at La Rochelle passport control however the passport officer was great with the kids and quite chatty joking with them."
Cons: "Flight was late by 40mins however everyone was apologetic and this was advertised well in advance which was good."

Pros: "Comfortable. Large plane"
Cons: "I was not allowed my hand luggage on in the cabin on the trip down or return as was told the cabin was full. That is would go in the hold but it would be first off. So many people came on after me with much larger hand luggage! Also my bag was last into baggage reclaim both times"

Pros: "Plane boarded early and took off on time but landed 15 minutes early fantastic as I caught an earlier but that i thought I would get"

Pros: "Very helpful and friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Pilots didn’t make any contact to the passengers. Very weird"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Using buses rather than gates to to enter the airport. Is it some kind of saving money with out considering passengers comfort"

Pros: "Being able to check in two weeks in advance and get assigned seats is fantastic."

Pros: "It was obvious that we had a excellent pilot ( captain) from very nice take off to a very present landing and well on time. Well done Easy Jet. I will definitely book with you again."
Cons: "Very unpleasant person sitting next to us however that was not Easy Jets fault."

Pros: "The trip home was excellent, Everything from start of the journey to the finish was perfect."
Cons: "The only complaint would be the journey to Krakow, that was a bit scary dew to the fog and low cloud, the pilot had to abort the first landing and circle for over an hour. But that was out with his control."

Pros: "Take of and landing"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Good value for money. As expected"

Pros: "Easy boarding and friendly staff Left BRS 30min late but arrived FAO on time! Tail winds"

Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of rubbish on a stairway that no one removed. Totally ridiculous."

Cons: "Their check in system is not clear.. We have a reservation for 2 passengers, and in the system I paid for an extra luggage... considering the price I paid I didnt realize that that was only an extra piece only for one passenger, so we had to pay 57 euros for the additional piece of the second passenger at the counter... considering the total ticket for 2 passenger was 120 euros, that increased the total price for almost 50%... Not even in Mexico the ticket for these kind of low budget airlines are so confuse and "tricky"."

Cons: "The 1 hour plus delay at Bristol"

Pros: "As above - uneventful - ran as it should!"
Cons: "Long walk at Kastrup airport!!"

Pros: "Crew always good."
Cons: "Delays, flight called way ahead of actual boarding and long delay getting off flight and in to terminal."

Pros: "The cabin staff were awesome, and a credit to the company"
Cons: "Nothing, all good"

Pros: "No organisation at boarding. Allocated back seats.. Pokey"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Stop the incessant advertising and selling over loud speaker when most people are trying to sleep through a flight ."

Pros: "No issues - everything went smoothly"
Cons: "There are no nets on the back of the seat in front of you to put things like water bottles - headphones, books etc."

Cons: "Pointless paying extra for priority boarding as both lanes boarded at the same time"

Cons: "If the seat and sitting area would have been cleaner and if you could recline your seat"

Cons: "Don't turn up with a cabin case, it will cost you £20 to have it put in the hold"

Cons: "Leg room & seat comfort"

Pros: "Price perfect, I love it. Seat great even for a very large person like me."
Cons: "Very hard landing, never hit the ground harder."

Pros: "Efficient and on time."

Cons: "Carcassonne is a tiny airport, be aware there are only vending machines after security, and not much seating. Announcements difficult to hear. Flight was fine, usual Ryanair."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful,and our seat confortable,the food and dring very good"

Cons: "The plane being on time, we got to the departure lounge ready to board only to be told there was a technical fault. They knew the plane had a fault, could have notified us sooner. Once on board we were delayed a further half an hour at no time were there any apologies or explanation."

Pros: "Straightforward process"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "From arriving at the airport to departing destination airport everything was seamless and perfect. Would like to travel like this every time. Hats off to everyone who involved."
Cons: "Being treated like a valued customer. It makes a difference."

Cons: "Checking opened 20 minutes late and lengthy queues through security meantwe had no time to grab food/shopping as we had to rush to gate as no notifications that our flight was actually delayed by an hour. Everyone was herded onto buses to wait there for some reason rather than at gate"

Pros: "price time of flight"
Cons: "unable to choose your seat free expensive tea and coffee and others"

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Check in was mad"

Pros: "That I made it home..and that the pilot was honest about running late and tried to make up the time. The guy checking us in at Fuerteventura was very pleasant."
Cons: "That the so called budget airline charges for everything..now on board bags. What next..a tariff for the toilet or to exit the plane..nothing would surprise me! 20kg isnt enough for a holiday...but just another excuse to charge more money. The on board staff never offered to help anyone struggling to find their seat or with their hand luggage. In fact the 2 girls at the back end of the plane were too busy bickering to notice anything. The space you get to sit in is ridiculous you can't even bend down in it. And the plane was delayed."

Cons: "inconvenient"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but nothing to tell us it was delayed apart from the screens. I got priority booking for the flight and on the way home no one shouted or got priority passengers over so it was a waste of money."

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "i' sat in row 10 with aspare seat next to me, my wife is in row 32 with 2 empty seat s next to her.Otherwise all good."

Cons: "Sneaky pricing methods set up to catch you on return flight when you have no option but to pay to get back with dreadful unprofessional staff. I will never fly with them again if I can help it.i will go out off my way to tell as many as possible to never use or trust them."

Cons: "Boarding at Stansted not good. Security took too long. When we arrived at the gate the departure board stated "final call" however the gate hadn't opened yet? No communication as to reason for this delay."

Cons: "We booked our daughter priority so she was entitled to bring a hand carry on board. When she got the airport they insisted that she had to put her hand carry in the hold despite it having her passport in it!! The Captain very kindly helped her retrieve it from the hold at the end of the flight but why did she ever have to put it in there when she was priority and we paid for it?"

Cons: "Seat pitch is too short for anyone over 5’8”"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Lateness and the waiting in the area to board with about 6 other flights in a small area with confusing announcements"

Pros: "I took 1230 flight from stansted airport to Edinburgh. I carried a personal baggage with me on the plane then flight attendant took it away and told me I will get it back at the arrival belt. When I landed I couldn’t find mine. I had reported to the ground desk and they not helpful at all. So now I lost all of my travel documents and money. I feel so bad. This Tuesday I will fly back to Thailand and still don’t know how to redo my passport."

Pros: "Nothing although crew were friendly"
Cons: "3 hour delay in both directions this week. No announcements made about delay. Gates changed 2x. Poor communication throughout. Email from Ryanair about cancellation/refund options received AFTER flight. Got home at 1 am. Truly horrible experience"

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."

Cons: "Couldn't recline seat Can't use Bluetooth as phone on airplane mode Hold luggage cost a bit expensive Automated seat allocation separates couples so we are forced to purchase seat to sit together. This is unacceptable."

Pros: "Straight forward flight"
Cons: "Having to pay for my family to sit together, this could have been offered with the automatic seating allocation, there were lots of 4 seats together . It seems that you are intentionally separated so that you pay to change."

Pros: "Smooth boarding and pleasant staff"
Cons: "Paying extra to sit together"

Pros: "Quick flight, friendly staff and pilot deserves credit for taking off in horrible weather conditions"
Cons: "No fault of the staff but we were an hour late boarding and I missed my connecting bus"

Cons: "two roads with Ryanair, each time delay of about one hour"

Pros: "Left late but arrived on time."
Cons: "Cost of seat and priority far too expensive, got caught out or wouldn’t have purchased. Flight really cold next to window. Boarding sign went up and our plane had not even arrived. Got everyone standing in lines far too early, my husband can’t stand for long periods, so back was sore before even on flight."

Cons: "Was approached when queing and told my bag was to go in the hold, there were people that had bigger/more bags that were not told this, i understand that if there is not enough room but surely first come first serve, we stood in the que specifically that this would not happen as we were in rush once we landed and did not have time to wait for bags. There were many people behind us that got to take their bag into the cabin."

Cons: "Bumpy Landing! Very expensive for a very basic service"

Pros: "On time and cheap"
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "price"
Cons: "There was a group of about 6 passengers that were very drunk before they got on the plane. I could hear that they were asked on their way through security 'how drunk are you?' which they announced loudly to everyone. They were shouting on board. They were still sold alcohol by the crew who did nothing to quieten them down. As usual the flight was late (around an hour by the time we actually got to the terminal)"

Pros: "The smooth landing."
Cons: "The tray tables sloped downwards making everything fall on to your lap. No storage under tray tables. No room for legs. Just a joke. Boarding took ages on tarmac. Staff were casual at best."

Pros: "Everything was great good staff with an exception. Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Crew member very abrupt didn't take time to explain that he was doing something just hand gestured to say time out. And when questioned about it no explanation amd didn't listen to my com0laint about his behaviour just brushed me off. Very disappointed. When we landed passport control was very slow and kept us all waiting in the cold. Self scanning machines were not working."

Pros: "5 stars all great"
Cons: "Tea was awful, too hot in plane at the begining."

Pros: "Nothing. Staff were pleasent enough"
Cons: "This flight was purchased on my behalf and was not chosen by me. Worst commercial flight ive ever been on. I will never spend a penny of my own money on a ryanair flight. Awful"

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "Late notification of cancelled flights. Ryan airs disregard to the impact to people's lives"

Pros: "Crew tried their best but their capacity were stretched to the max to accommodate us."
Cons: "In Malta airport they only had use of ONE wheelchair/passenger lift vehicle for all flights and we almost missed our flight because the airport team couldn't locate the lift vehicle (PRM). In Edinburgh airport, the lift vehicle got us off the plane ok but didn't have enough wheelchairs or assistants for all those who booked. In the end we were just dumped off by the luggage caramel and had to have the slightly better disabled push the severely disabled out whilst I pushed the luggages. The holiday was fine but the traveling was just terrible due to clear lack of resources and capacity of airport teams"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no leg or arm room especially when sat next to people who are too big for their seats!"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delayed again!"

Cons: "Ryanair's new random allocation for the seats is a joke. They are trying to make the most money off their passengers. I've flown with them for the past 5+ years and this is the first time I've encountered this nonsense."

Cons: "Ryanair is really pretty bad at the customer one on one model. They DO NOT WANT TO HELP AT ALL !! it just seems to me if you are in customer service you should understand that people who travel from other countries are helping with your economy,YOUR JOB, If you don't fit the model move on,find something else to do in your life. Don't make me feel like I owe you,really you owe me a easy time getting through all the troubles of your airline.If some one from the airline reads this you should play under cover and see what i mean ,act as a person who needs help,does not understand your accent .you just really are bad !!"

Cons: "Boarding was very slow, 30 minutes late taking off. Everything else was okay, nothing special but nothing wrong"
