Pros: "Simplicity"

Cons: "Not much. Outside influences not under their control"

Cons: "Everything is made easy...."

Cons: "Seats don't recline"

Pros: "Crew were good, no issues. Flight was prompt and easy."
Cons: "A few too many announcements and promotions for buying stuff on board."

Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"

Pros: "That it's over"

Cons: "People had to go a long way to find space to stow their bags. No one was telling people to put small bags under their seats."

Cons: "Food options are very bad & there are no TVs on the plane but otherwise this was an excellent flight & a seamless holiday transfer from the moment that we arrived."

Cons: "Missed the need to add luggage to both inward and outbound journey, that got excessively charged on the way back. Have never had to select luggage allowances both ways, clearly we want to bring our luggage back! + why should it cost twice as much to add to the hold when paying at the airport, rip of"

Pros: "Crew are always pleasant and know how to smile"
Cons: "Air con started out super hot then went rather chilly!?"

Pros: "This plane was alot older then other planes owned but the cabin was still new, legroom brill, clean cabin and excellent staff. We were kept fully informed of the extra safety procedures needed in regards to de-ice the plane before takeoff."
Cons: "Would have rathered a new plane, and to land ontime but only 20 mins late."

Pros: "Comfortable, quick flight to prague, even landed early! The cabin crew were efficent and the cabin was kept clean and tidy. Legroom is always better on Jet2"
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Jet2 have good planes, excellent legroom and great staff."

Pros: "Nothinf"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Cheap and easy."
Cons: "The announcements were a bit “organised tour” excitement which was odd. Also not allowed tablets during take off and landing which was a bit behind the ball compared to other carriers."

Pros: "Comfortable, friendly service on the plane."
Cons: "Connection issues from previous flight. Connecting ground staff didn't seem to have their game together. In all fairness, it was after midnight and I don't think it was connected to the Aegean airline. More like airport security."

Cons: "Could not check in online"

Pros: "Late at the airport but they managed to get us all through and boarded on time"
Cons: "Too many steps especially at Birmingham"

Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."

Pros: "The crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing to report. Very efficient"

Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Clean. Everything worked. Competent and friendly crew. Great price. Yes, we definitely would fly with Jet2 again."
Cons: "Really packed us in. Crew kept on offering items for sale. But, it is a deeep discount carrier so we were not surprised."

Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."

Pros: "Nice clean plane. Short flight good check in, comfortable seat. Nice staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Timing and space"

Pros: "Crew were polite, better than on the outward flight from Paris CDG to Leeds, but seemed more interested in chatting to each other than to reassure passengers about the long delays. Once underway, the flight progressed well."
Cons: "When a 30 minute delay was announced (13.45 instead of 13.15), I was fairly philosophical. However, we didn't board until 13.45. Once settled in our seats, another 25 minutes went by when the plane did not move. No information's given. I asked a member of the cabin crew what was going on who said she didn't know anything. I then heard her ask (presumably the captain) on the intercom if he could make an announcement as 'passengers were enquiring' We were then informed that we would have a further delay of up to an hour. We eventually took off at 16.00, over two hours after scheduled time. Thank goodness, I had left plenty of time for my connecting train. I was equally unimpressed for different reasons with Jet2.com on the outward flight on 12 July. I will not be flying with them again."

Pros: "I actually found the seat quite comfortable, compared with other low-cost airlines. I was glad that i could take my hand luggage onto the plane, allowing me to exit without having to wait at the carousel. There was plenty of space in the overhead locker. I liked the sense of humour in the announcements - it proves that even serious things can be said in a pleasant manner"

Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."

Pros: "Another excellent flight on Jet2 , 35 minute delay but handled with such relaxed professionalism by the crew. Highley recommend *****"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Superb flight."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Charge to ensure you keep your free hand luggage in the cabin. Security delays at Belfast."

Pros: "First holiday with Jet2 and really impressed. My only tip would be to book a meal, as pre-booked meals are served first and the non-booked sandwiches ran out by our row. Will fly with them again."

Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Although as always we seemed to end up in the crèche part of the cabin."
Cons: "Having to switch off all electronics while the seatbelt sign is on believe bags in the last century. Even a kindle! This is just ridiculous."

Pros: "New plane. Great legroom. Generous luggage allowance. Pleasant crew."

Pros: "- Boarding was quick and effortless - Customer service was excellent from both ground staff and in flight team - No niggly baggage rules - Fair prices for in flight meals and snacks A huge thank you to Jet2 for providing an excellent service at fair prices"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Short check in, good leg room in seats"
Cons: "Overpriced food"

Pros: "Delayed boarding, taking off, landing, and then getting from plane to gate"

Pros: "Have drag A1 do great space, all in timd"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "What a breath of fresh air. Simple no frills service but very friendly attentive staff. Can't quite say why but 100 times more pleasant than a Ryanair flight!"

Pros: "Great flight, super low price. Overall great value. Also the cabin staff were great. The flight was quite empty so we had a bit of a blether"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong with the flight, aircraft or service. Only one star for food cos I didn't order, and for entertainment as there was none. Wasn't expecting for £80"

Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"

Cons: "Delay due to incompetence at Venice airport"

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly"
Cons: "The constant talking on the overhead trying to sell something (food, donations, duty free) and then the stewardess didn't make it to the back to hand over landing cards."

Pros: "On one of the busiest weekends for flying it was perfect..... the plane the staff and the flight"
Cons: "The food was expensive and not great"

Pros: "Great service and food and smooth all the wsy"
Cons: "BiokAggrevation beforehand trying to book guaranteed cabin baggage"

Pros: "Friendly, polite crew and clean aircraft both ways."
Cons: "Poor entertainment and lack of holder on seat in front to hold magazines, phone, iPad etc."

Cons: "Our flight out was delayed by a couple of hours and the return flight was delayed at least an hour. It was clear skies, no tusre why. Also, after having paid to check our bag, the bag didn't arrive at our destination because it was removed from the plane, along with 26 others. We didn't get it back for 5 days, just in time for our holiday to be over."

Pros: "Staff and process"
Cons: "No entertainment, pre booking hot food"

Cons: "This is a buckle and fine airline. I went to check in online the day before my flight and added a checked bag for each passenger. The website did not work well and it ended up booking 2 bags each and charging me for two each. When I arrived at the airport they said I had not checked on online and had to pay extra for checking in at the airport. I asked for a manager who said there was no record of me going online. That was odd because I booked and paid for my bags online the previous day while I was checking in.they said I had to write a letter to get back my extra baggage fees I was charged in error. I doubt I will ever see that money again."

Pros: "Good service and price"
Cons: "Poor food selection"

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Easy flight time and Luton airport is small and manageable"
Cons: "Cleaner plane"

Cons: "Flight could’ve arrived on time."

Pros: "The calzone (food)."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Not much leg room"

Pros: "What I love the most is the cabin crew through speaker was very funny, breaking the ice by making jokes. I have never experience that before and it's the best start to a flight if you are a bit concerned about flying. Was very easy and organised to board and the crew were very nice,"
Cons: "Nothing at this point"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice There are always delays"

Pros: "Preferential boarding was useful as the flight was full and cabin baggage space was tight."

Cons: "We boarded really early but the plane hadn’t arrived and we were made to wait in a corridor, we boarded at about 9:30 when we were supposed to depart at 8:55, we departed almosted an hour later than expected (9:45) which made a huge difference and unfortuntely we missed the train from luton and the last tube in London."

Pros: "No delays"

Pros: "Crew ok."
Cons: "Automated baggage drop off No one to help with bags. Very late. Sat on plane for ages before lift off. Slow to get a drink. Hardly time to drink it. Very uncomfortable and annotingz experience."

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Cons: "The chairs dose not move. So it's not very comfortable to sit on"

Pros: "Airport facilities in Edinburgh. No waiting time at security. Water fountaine after security."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by nearly 1 hr. No information of it until 15 min before the scheduled take off time, inspite of me signing up to text alerts at the flight booking. Boarding via bus and just 1 staircase. Passengers with children under 5 years announced to board first, but no chance as no way through unorganised crowd of passengers waiting."

Pros: "friendly service at counter"
Cons: "the way attendants treated us when boarding deep contrast with peaple in the counter"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after they told us it was just delayed. They did not re-book us on any other flight or airlne, therefore, they left us stranded to fend for ourselves. The expenses and reimbursement claim process is quite lengthy. I'm not at all impressed with EasyJet"

Pros: "Plane on time, new plane, nice crew."
Cons: "Ability to move seats."

Pros: "I did not fly"

Pros: "- the food trays of seats of the plane are in such a way that you can lay your head on them and sleep. It’s really the most comfortable of all Continental flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "- on board WiFi -"

Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Leg space, cabin bag allowance more than 5 kg. Water at least to be served onboard a long distance flight."

Pros: "The food options were amazing and the wine was very nice!"

Pros: "Everything went exactly as it should with any flight - check-in (long queue, but multiple desks open so it didn't take long for everyone to check-in on time), boarding (swift and efficient), operation (no technical issues, no unpleasant experiences, flight departed and landed on time) & plane (fairly new and clean aircraft)."
Cons: "Not being connected to a jet (boarding) bridge, despite the aircraft being parked right in front of the terminal, next to one of these connecting bridges. We had to take the bus circle the terminal for what felt like an unnecessary expense-cutting choice made by Wizzair."

Cons: "You must check in few hours before the flight. Checking in at the airport will cost you 35€. Besides that, the boarding took almost 40min and the seats are not comfy at all. That said, i would rather pay extra $50 and fly with normal company."

Cons: "not charge me for carry on luggage"

Pros: "Boarding took forever and we were an hour late"
Cons: "Start boarding time 30min before it is set to fly instead of doing when we are supposed to take off"

Pros: "We had an eventless and safe flight and it was not too cold on the plane."
Cons: "There was no paper towel in the toilet, the water for the tee was not warm enough to have tee. We have been told to have 10-20 min delay we arrived much later. And the intonation of the speaking stewardess was so annoying that you could not listen to it :( These are minor things but can change the customer experience."

Pros: "One of the very rare on-time, efficient and smooth flights with Wizzair. Check-in was fairly quick and incident-free, despite some of the other passengers reporting problems with the procedures and the staff. Boarding was quick and the flight actually arrived 10 minutes earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "As usual, the cabin crew is adequately polite, but not overly friendly, the food & beverage range is mediocre and overpriced at best and the entertainment is virtually non-existent."

Cons: "The seats are cramped and you have to pay for snacks and water"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long check-in lines Seats uncomfortable"

Pros: "I liked that we were not late and that the late coming priority guests were told to pay attention next time. Take off and landing were both nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow and we were somewhat late."

Cons: "It was hot and stuffy and dirty"

Pros: "Good airport . Punctual flight ."

Cons: "Was delayed"

Cons: "Changing in luggage information was annoying"

Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "1h30 delay for no specific reason is unacceptable"

Pros: "The flight arrived ten minutes early at our destination."
Cons: "Extremely small and uncomfortable seats even for a small person."

Pros: "I called flight network and was put on hold for about five minutes, simply to get an answer to the question of the baggage allowance - I didn’t see it anywhere when booking the wiz air ticket. They told me that I was slowed one checked baggage and one cabin baggage that would be charged about €40 if it was over 30 kilos (which it was not). At the airport wizz air said that I had chosen online booking (which I had not) and therefore I had to pay a €30 fee. Also they said I had no checked baggage allowance and was charged an additional €150 !!!!"
Cons: "That I wa given false information that cost me a huge amount of money, And that the booking page does not make it easy to add baggage information."

Pros: "All and all great value for the money"

Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."

Cons: "Lost luggage. 3 days since and still no luggage.And they don't have a customer service phone number that I can call. Very dissapointed. I guess that's what you should expect from a low cost flight company. I will never book a flight with them again."

Pros: "Staff was nice and felt bad for their company’s policy."
Cons: "I was charged $45 US dollars to print my boarding pass!!! I’m used to only being able to check in 24 hours before my flight. I found out that I cannot print my boarding pass within 48 hours of my flight. I was monitarily RAPED and will be disputing these charges! Boo on you Wizz Air....aka f*ckwads."

Cons: "Flight delayed by more than 2 hours, additional 40 minutes in the plain before departure. At least 30 minutes until doors opened. Overall huge delay that totally killed my business day."

Pros: "Flight was delayed. I missed my train home to Ipswich. Long journey home ver late at night"

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: "Nothing!"
Cons: "My husband was seated in row 2 and I was seated in row 29, even though there were many spare seats in blocks of two and three that we could have been sat in; then I was forced to put my carryon luggage in the hold, meaning I had to wait ages at the baggage reclaim on arrival, and was late for my air BnB check in. When I booked my flight I deliberately chose not to check any luggage, spent time planning what to take so that it would fit in a carryon bag, and measured out my liquids into small bottles so that they passed the liquids restrictions: all effort and time spent in vain due to Wizz Air. I was furious!"

Cons: "Very long queues at boating in Charleroi airport"

Pros: "Staff were generally sweet & approachable."
Cons: "Cannot understand management of border control security before boarding. This is done in the corridor on route to gate. Long long queues, then continued to queue before boarding in the waiting/holding room. No toilets once you enter the corridor to go to gate. Unsatisfactory management. Water from air conditioner dripping on me on board from take off. Not an immediate suggestion to move, but agreement to do so on my suggestion and then gentle insistence. Thankfully there was a seat for me! It seemed to be a problem staff were aware of which is concerning that Wizz did not block that seat."

Pros: "Cheap with early booking"
Cons: "No food, even free coffee."

Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."

Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"

Cons: "So cheap."

Cons: "Don't forget to print a damn boarding pass. Cost me 100$ at the airport just for that... What a rip off. First time traveling to Europe so, I guess that's a part of the learning curve."

Pros: "Cabin Crew and Pilot did their best"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and landed in Birmingham instead of Luton, due to Luton being closed at midnight"

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."

Pros: "Arrived only slightly delayed"
Cons: "They made my boyfriend pay 35 gbp for a case 5 cams longer than their stipulation. Yet, lots of other passengers didn't have to pay. Sheer discrimination. Crew is unfriendly and refused to help me place my bag in over head locker. Really poor professional s"

Pros: "Well organised."
Cons: "Charging for light refreshments."

Cons: "As Usual always late, left us sitting in a bus on the tarmac for ages in30 deg heat. awful. will never use again"

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: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."
Cons: "Due to technical issue with plane, passengers were delayed about 15-20 minutes on the tarmac in a crowded, hot shuttle bus with ineffective air conditioning and almost no fresh air coming in."

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"

Cons: "Because we booked through Kayak/lastminute it was impossible to add luggage - so cost of one suitcase was same as cost of flight!!!!"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."

Pros: "They robbed me saying low cost wizz sucks up airline Took my 30£ for not checking on line I already post on social media about it so the whole world knows about wizz suck airline in the world"
Cons: "Rude people on the counters racist cheating in the name of low cost never ever recommended to even my enemies that much cheaters robber other customers said is all lie"

Pros: "Great price, excellent service."
Cons: "The size of the free cabin bag - too small"

Pros: "awesome UX/UI"
Cons: "not so great on the mobile version"

Cons: "Randomly picked for paying a carry on fee. Misleading, expensive, and the feeling of being extorted. I will push for a refund."

Cons: "Lead turblence"

Pros: "I wasn't allowed to fly as the Scottish government said non essential travel wasn't allowed and I wasn't allowed the opportunity to get a voucher for my flight"
Cons: "Seeing as I wasn't allowed to fly l could have been offered a voucher or someone at Ryanair help could have answered my question about my flight"

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: "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"

Pros: "Fast boarding"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Being a bit late. Unusual for Ryanair"

Pros: "It was an ok flight, although late in boarding pilot made up time. Good landing."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual"

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: "Exellent start and landing! Bravo pilots!"

Cons: "the heat in the cabin was unbearable"

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: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Late boarding and twenty minutes late taking off then no staff to meet the plane when it landed in Stansted for 40 minutes so I missed the train I was booked on which cost me more than the return flight to renew my train ticket"

Cons: "Having to now pay and queue for cabin baggage is treating customers like dirt. Flight was one hour late to Dublin so missed my connection. Best not flying with this crowd in future."

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: "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: "Nothing"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay 1 hour delay disembarking due to non-availability of ground staff Another appalling travel experience with Ryanair - they should not be allowed to operate an airline"

Cons: "everything"

Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"

Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"

Cons: "Having to pay to use the toilet on board"

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"

Cons: "Tiny seats, baggage policy is garbage"

Pros: "For the price what is there to complain about."

Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"

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: "She was the most miserable and unfriendly person I have ever met! Why has she chosen a customer facing role?????"
Cons: "Air stewards, all very chatty amongst themselves but no time for their customers!!"

Pros: "Getting off the plane at the other end, eventually."
Cons: "The massive delay, the move of gates to the other end of the airport only to get onto a bus and then wait 15-20 minutes to get off the bus and onto the plane. Even an offer of free coffee on board would've been nice but nope, just a few apologies over the PA."

Pros: "If you pay for priority boarding you do expect to get first on the airplane But you go with everyone on the bus and since you got first you are among the last to board ...what the point to pay than?"

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 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 ."

Cons: "Rude representatives and terrible organization."

Pros: "Arrived on time after leaving late"
Cons: "I was too tall to be sitting beside two very big people"

Pros: "The plane made it to Las Palmas"
Cons: "8 drunk women shouted and disrupted other's quiet"

Cons: "7 hour delay"
