Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."

Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."

Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."

Cons: "Attempting to check in online the day before was a nightmare and after half an hour on two different sites and an hour of speaking to very rude customer service reps for both BA and Aer Lingus, we were told we just had to check in in person. The check-in line opened fifteen minutes late, the woman who checked us in didn't answer our questions because she was busy talking to her friend. Once on the plane the Airbus seats were truly awful and should not hold a person for 10+ hours. The wifi also never worked."

Also insisted my sleeping 7 yr old upright his chair for beverage service when everyone around us had their seat reclined(the people around us were all Caucasian btw) and she didn't seem to feel the need to remind them."

Pros: "Flights were on time. Planes were clean and comfortable. The food was ok - the ice cream was great as was the extra water."

Cons: "Security. Large distances to walk. Poor signage. Poor processes re onboarding. Booked Aer Lingus. Was actually a shitty Stobard plane."
Pros: "Good leg room, comfortable."
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal. They were able to handle the plane issues and boarding problems with a smile and did their best to accommodate and make things right but unfortunately had limited resources available to them."
Cons: "Did not like the 2.5 hour delay and plane de-boarding/change - this is something that should have been checked before 200 people were allowed to get on the plane and get situated. Also did not like the fact that I called ahead of time (5 weeks) to request a gluten free meal (which was on my flight to Dublin I will add) and it was not on my return flight to the USA. I was starving and was not able to eat that day because the cafes were closed in Dublin (Christmas eve), no food on plane, and because of a missed layover due to flight delay was scrambling to make the new connection and could not get food. Also, rescheduling for missed connection was a nightmare. Not enough personnel to assist in process and took over an hour just to get re-assignment information. Was sent to wrong gate and almost missed new connection. Then on top of that my luggage was lost and the american airlines operating staff sent me to the wrong terminal to make a claim and it ended up taking 1.5 hours longer than it should have just to submit my claim. This is on Christmas Eve mind you, after everything else that is happened that day on this nightmare of a flight. I realize American Airlines is just a partner airline, but you choose to partner with a company that provides sub-par service and an inability to resolve issues so I suggest finding a new partner if you want your customers to have better overall experiences."
Pros: "Fine going through customs in Ireland"
Cons: "Delay made it a problem getting though almost missed flight"
Cons: "Not enough variety in food. Should be one meat and one non meat style menu."
Pros: "Easy check in at Dublin. Got upgrade to good seat near front."
Cons: "Did not enjoy the lunch served. Spicy food."
Pros: "Boarding from back and rear of plane made passenger loading faster. I had to purchased seats with more room to provide comfort for long flight."
Cons: "In Dublin, we were sent to an area for a long wait with no decent food at all, even though the Dublin airport has good restaurants. It probably has to do with U.S. security, but certainly something more accommodating could be worked out. They had an Aer Lingus lounge, but only for business class and gold card holders, so after spending thousands on tickets, we were not allowed in. Guess the "1 percent" privileges."
Pros: "A pleasant flight, good crew."
Cons: "They lost a bag and so far, 36 hours later, have not responded to our recorded messages, which us the only option we've found to reach them."
Pros: "Nothing, felt worse than a sardine in a cheap tin can. Paid extra for leg room and didn't have it. Kept getting leg cramps and when I stood up I was told to sit down"
Cons: "Everything from rude airline steward, when I thanked him for anything never got a response to the incredibly narrow seats with poor leg room. Staff was not friendly."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No bad experiences"

Cons: "Baggage reclaim very slow"
Cons: "Last flight of the night always running late"

Cons: "Why is it always my flight that's delayed????"
Pros: "Helpful staff"

Cons: "Nothing at this point"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice There are always delays"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding zero food and drink"
Pros: "Crew were polite and efficient. Pilots got us there effectively. We left on time and arrived early. All good."
Cons: "Instant coffee!"
Pros: "Preferential boarding was useful as the flight was full and cabin baggage space was tight."
Cons: "People shouldn't be allowed to carry two bags of the same size and dimensions onto the plane, space is too tight for that, they should be made to put all their bags into the hold."
Pros: "On time and boarding witoutvchas"
Pros: "quick flight staff excellent"
Cons: "Very. bumpy lots of turbulence I know that's not the airlines fault but you asked what I didn't like."

Pros: "We got to our destination, crew were polite and helpful"

Pros: "Very quick and pleasant journey"

Cons: "EasyJet website failed to allow us to checkin my wife's itinnery meaning we had to queue for boarding passes, despite having no luggage to check only to find out the flight was oversold and at least one of us was on standby. Fortunately, we all got a seat in the end, but my family of 5 was scattered all over the plane, with 3 of us in the exit isle, which would have been great if our kids weren't all < 12."
Cons: "More than 60 min delay!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "No information, deley after deley and no reps or updates."
Cons: "PAYING 150 EUROS EXTRA TO TAKE MY HANDBAG ON BOARD"

Pros: "Flight left Edinburgh on time and arrived on time that’s something that doesn’t happen to often and the crew were really friendly"
Pros: "The flight itself was quite quick and the staff on board were very nice"
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."

Cons: "I liked the ease of use on the website,once I arrived there friendly staff from start to finish which helped the flight go by so much better"
Pros: "As always good service with EasyJet, ignore all the extras they try and tempt you with it’s a plane with seats I just want to get there in one piece I’m not worried about boarding first I’d rather be in the bar ! or extra legroom either the plane will still be there when I arrive"
Cons: "Some of your flight staff need to cheer up a bit at times , why when you are already ripping us off for a small can of beer for £4.50 it’s warm at least chill it for that price , why is it as soon as the plane stops people have to grab their luggage first and block up the aisles your not going to get there any quicker"
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite"
Cons: "Boarding process was an absolute mess."

Cons: "Thought I'd got a window seat at the back instead very claustrophobic seat with no view."
Cons: "Drink /food trolley didn't make it to row 18 during the flight"
Cons: "the Madrid - Bristol connection is a mess. Grossly delayed on the way up and down, which in the case of a night flight can let you stranded in the airport to wait for the next bus to the southwest for a couple of hours, like it happened to me."
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."

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"
Cons: "Really rude staff member getting people through to plane. Food I ordered came to me as something totally different because they had run out of what I ordered they didn’t ask me if I wanted it instead so had to refuse it as I can’t eat cheese so I ended up going without."
Pros: "Flight got me home..."
Cons: "Tatty magazine/menu that was passed round passengers, unclear cabin baggage sizing and almost made to pay extra fee for something that fit!"

Cons: "Boarding was slow, stuck in hot bus on tarmac."
Pros: "Great flight at a great price."
Cons: "Land softer"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "Clean, comfy, practical. Just as you expect of low cost flight."
Cons: "Staff were tired and although not rude looked like they'd had enough."
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Width of seats was far to small, the seats covers are dated and gruby, the queing process for standard and fast track was a shambles. Checking in was slow due to there being only 1 desk open for a full flight."
Cons: "the heat in the cabin was unbearable"
Pros: "Crew were polite and friendly. Aircraft was clean and comfortable and the price was unbeatable."
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: "Cabin crew very good, lovely flights out and back but food sparse. Lots in the in flight magazine but seemingly little on board. I was v hungry!! Mr O'Leary, love the cheap flights and booking system fine but you could make more money from better food options. Pity."
Cons: "Much waiting in line for most of an hour bofore gate opens and incredibly slow inflight food service"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight had group of youngsters who should not have been allowed on flight. They displayed rowdy behaviour and swore and gestures throughout flight. Staff did very little to try and stop them until other passengers started to complain."
Pros: "Inconvenient all, no aplogise of delayed Flight as like the turtle!"
Cons: "To prepare on time!! Plz Eeven though I’ve booked more planty of time for next plan, it was late because of too much delayed"
Cons: "RYanair always delayed (1h30 delay inbound, 2h delay outbound), that company is a disgrace"
Pros: "Short and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Setting off time delayed by 40 minutes"
Cons: "Was told at boarding gate for a visa check stamp requirement. Admittedly it was mentioned in a casual way in the boarding pass,but wasn't a border control requirement. The airline could have done it there. But was denied boarding, waited for 6 hours to catch next flight and further connections."
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: "Flight delayed, so usual knock on effect with lifts, people coming to meet."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We were not told the reason for the delay. We were not given an estimate of the length of the delay. No update information was given. We all understand there can be problems; but just tell us what they are? Then, we were all called forward to board, but I was still standing 45 minutes later in the queue. Let us wait in (relative) comfort in the terminal (restrooms, drinks, wider seats etc), don't start to board us ridiculously early."
Pros: "On time and fairly quick baggage retrieval. Being able to check-in before you leave UK is very useful."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak and although it does warn about extra charges for baggage, I feel I was duped because I booked for 3 check-in bags at additional cost thinking that would mean for outbound flight and return but once the booking transferred to Last minute on completion it turned out I only had check-in baggage for the outbound flight (different airline) and not for the Ryanair return flight. Ryanair charges more if you book check-in baggage after the original booking so the flights were much more expensive than I had thought. Kayak did not help with this issue. I would not use them again."
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"
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"
Cons: "Too expensive for what you get. Bad landing! Oh dear"
Pros: "I was able to take my guitar as hand luggage, which is very important. Even though guitars exceed the hand baggage limits, many professionals need to be able to carry on their instruments. Priority boarding is essential."
Pros: "Once boarded it was very smooth"
Cons: "Over 3&a half hours delay was sooooo painful"
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."
Cons: "Priority boarding And disembarkation But had to wait half an hour for the parking people WCP recommended by Ryanair then a 15 Minuit journey to collect the car what a joke This was the only downside of what was a good trip In Poland booked taxi and tours were there waiting for us no waiting around"
Pros: "Crew jokes eased the tension after the flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayes"
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: "I arrived safely without a scratch. The entire crew were very nice. Things were clean. There were no screens for the addicted. I got some sleep before the announcements and sales kicked in on the short flight."
Cons: "Gate was changed after initial assignment. I wouldn't have known if I hadn't sat almost in front of the counter and overheard a customer there saying my flight. I asked someone even closer to the counter if that's the gate, and was told no. There aren't even display boards at the counter so you really have to check. The right gate ended up on the opposite end of the airport, so I wasted a trip and a half, in a way. The previous flight was late, so we boarded half an hour late. We were warned to wait another half an hour on the tarmac but luckily got out in less than half that time. There was no liquid soap in the toilet. I unscrewed the bottle (they really save money and the environment there), put in hot water, and was able to get the soap I needed."
Pros: "I needed a glass of water as soon as I boarded to take some tablets as I was starting to feel unwell. The crew accommodated this immediately and were very pleasent."
Cons: "Why people don't just pay if they want to sit together. It is that way now so go with it rather than main and play chess on the plane, asking people if they will change seats. Sort it out your adults. Surely you can cope for a few hours?"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, plane was clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as the flight before hadn't landed, which happens. But when we arrived at Stanstead we waited a long time to get off of the plane, and the bags from the hold were not released for another hour and a half after landing, with no recogition of this or apology for the wait."
Cons: "Late no communication stuck in a queue at airport and no one said a word for over an hour! Will never use again"
Cons: "The 1.5 hour delay with no info. We're told that there was a problem that had been affecting the flight all day, they ccould have forewarned us as a matter of courtesy."
Cons: "CHAOTIC. Found the Ryanair booking site difficult to log into with my booking number constantly not being recognised. Once I'd booked it was pay, pay, pay for luggage and seats making the flight expensive. Biggest insult was they took my money for a transfer, return email saying it was accepted. A later email saying it was cancelled with no refund of money. A 12 month credit note ( not seen yet ) which I can't use in 12 months. Now feeling ripped off Will not be flying with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Price was good. Staff are good in general but felt that the cabin crew lacked professionalism - a tough job noted however. Overall very happy with the service - please note my comments."
Cons: "Why did I pay for a priority que ? The point being exactly what ? The herding of customers into a cattle gate affair ? Last call 45 mins before the flight. Cheap flight - cheap organised. I note below someone has stated crew were professional and VERY entertaining ...... thatnis not professional I am afraid. A crew that is busy entertaining the passengers is a crew that lacks focus on the primary role of the cabin safety ... Human Factors !"
Pros: "Arrived on time after leaving late"
Cons: "I was too tall to be sitting beside two very big people"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Did not receive an email from Ryan air. Arrived at Edinburgh airport and was told that since I did not check in and it was within 2 hours of the flight, I would have to pay 50 Euro per passenger to check in. There were 3 of us. I had previously paid for checked bags and to reserve seats. Sneaky way for an airline to sucker people out of money. Have flown Ryan air before. Will never again. Unfortunate. Staff was welcoming and flight was comfortable. Not a reflection of employees. 100% reflection of upper management."
Pros: "Price only."
Cons: "Gathering in long queues, not enough room for seating and luggage, stewardesses not really nice and many other remarks."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the pilot landed without any ear discomfort for the three of us as he kept his decent not too quickly"
Cons: "The food supplied by Ryanair is very expensive rubbish"
Cons: "Delayed flight , loads of drunks onboard and very noisy"
Pros: "The price was very good, new plane crew were efficient and no hold ups brill."
Pros: "Speed of boarding"
Cons: "Ran out of tea and coffee after first 3-4 rows so most of us had none."
Cons: "Ryan air staff attitude and lack of efficiency."
