Pros: "UP TO THE MARK I EXPECTED"
Cons: "A PILLOW WOULD BE GOOD, MAKING THE FLIGHT MORE COMFORTABLE"

Pros: "the only thing that stands out was the agent who checked me in at Entebbe. She was pleasant and helpful. Most things were ok, but not special."
Cons: "Because I require oxygen onboard, I was not allowed to check in on line. consequently, my wife and I got middle seats that were very tight. At least one of them was an aisle."

Cons: "I requested Asian vegetarian meal and I got regular vegetables and some products used by people with Celiac problems, even the wrapping of the "fake" bread says that it was for people with celiac problems. I tried three monitors and none worked properly. Any way with the poor selections of movies I did not miss it. I only missed it because I like to watch the flying statistics."

Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."

Pros: "Not really something. It was an old cabin. The seat was confortable and the food was ok. Some of the crew were nice others not that much."
Cons: "The cleaning of the toilets. Awful and without water and soap. The restrooms were not clean from the beginning. It was disgusting. Having new cabin."

Pros: "Brussels airport clearance was quite efficient"
Cons: "Better instructions at the airport"

Pros: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Cons: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats from Brussels to Accra, aircraft clean and well maintained."
Cons: "Slow Boarding from Paris. Poor, but very poor entertainment system"

Cons: "Three hour delay. Shifted all our plans and reservations. Upsetting. Made short seven hour flight a ten hour flight with sitting and waiting for three hours. We were hungry and tired and stuck. Kept getting mixed signals: to wait longer."

Pros: "Seats were old, but very spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed disorganized, and the plane took off late due to waiting for late passengers."

Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable with decent leg room."
Cons: "My biggest complaint is for the exhorbitant baggage fees—€100 for two bags is ridiculous. Also, one of the crew was rather testy with us when we first boarded (unprovoked), then came to us a few minutes later to say something nice to sort of make up for it."

Cons: "There was someone that pooped themselves, another that threw up, and the flight attendants were so rude. They kept spraying stuff in the air and even those of us sitting, so much in fact I had an asthma attack and had to use my inhaler. When I told the attendant, she said "theres nothing I can do," and kept spraying the air with this awful spray. The flight harmful to my health, exhausting, and uncomfortable. BEWARE OF THIS AIRLINE! I would have preferred not gone on my trip then fly this airline!"

Pros: "Crew were super helpful and friendly. Food was above average for airline food. It was all on schedule. On my return trip - knowing already the confusion with the exit row seat which I explained here, they switched me to the correct exit row without a problem or charge."
Cons: "I tried to book exit row seats online. The seat map would not load, so I called the number suggested. Had a long a confusing conversation with a woman who did not seem to understand what an exit row seat was. I booked seats, but my card was never charged and I received no email confirmation. I tried the website again and this time saw the seat map. Completely misleading. The real exit row is the row IN FRONT of the marked exits on the map. I chose the row which looked like an exit row, and on boarding found that I was in the row behind the exit row. The flight attendant took a photo of my seat map print out, because it was so confusing!!! No wonder the woman I spoke to sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about - she was following the seat map too!"

Pros: "Kindliness of crew"
Cons: "Impossibility to by drinks or did with bank cards"

Pros: "Good and nice Food, crew helps , comfort seat and Entertainment clean and new screens ."

Cons: "Very disappointing, Lufthansa airline sold my return ticket to another customers with out notifying me, so i’m stuck in here now and i have to find another ticket. And of course the flight is not refundable."

Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "I found that the meal served was of particularly good quality and tasty"

Pros: "Timeliness, crew and seat space.."
Cons: "I had problems checking in online and never could assign seats.. had to wait to check in at the booth and got random seats so my husband and I got seperated seats.."

Pros: "Fair amount on the seating room. Polite staff helpful, on time. good value for money"
Cons: "Plane seem a bit old lights would flicker randomly."

Pros: "Ease of boarding, reasonably comfortable seats on a short flight."
Cons: "No liquids (soda, coffee, water) offered."

Pros: "It was easy boarding. The flight crew had been been late due to a bad taxi driver. We still arrived on time!"
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Read above!! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!"

Cons: "Sardine tin bus transfers from hell."

Pros: "Excellent feature that shows your current trip progress on the world map. Excellent selection of movies. Excellent employees."
Cons: "The seat was alittle uncomfortable."

Cons: "Stingy with food, very little entertainment if at all"

Pros: "flight arrived safely"
Cons: "everything else. Tegel is a mess, but also this Brussels Air / Lufthansa flight was tightly packed with absolutely no service for anyone not in the first 12 rows of the plane - more than half did not even get a drop of water"

Cons: "Poor customer service."

Cons: "The lady at the gate was rude. I was in a group with small children, we were all family, she made me wait in line without my family."

Cons: "The plane was changed and I was given a new seat on the last row without a window. When I complained I was told to move to a middle seat somewhere. In terms of service SN is like a low cost carrier. None."

Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."

Pros: "The fare, that's it."

Pros: "Everything about the airline"

Pros: "Leg room and food on board was pretty good. The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The competence and effectiveness of the boarding crew was deplorable. Everyone looked and acted like it was their first day on the job. If I have a choice, I don't think I will ever fly this airline again. Brussels airport is also a confusing mess. You just wait in line after line with no clear direction. They left one of my bags behind in Brussels as well, and I have yet to receive an update on where it is."

Cons: "Completely chaotic service."

Pros: "On time Polite crew"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I paid for a ticket that includes a hot meal, but a day before the flight they changed their policy so I didn't get any meal. They even asked for money for a cup of water, and this is my red line. The seats recline and comfort is poor."

Cons: "- No order to the boarding in Brussels. I am used to boarding in zones so things tend to be less congested leading up to the jetway. - This may or may not have been something the airline could have changed but sitting in the plane for 5 hours waiting to de-ice was unacceptable. The entire food service was served in this time so no food was available for the 6 hour flight to Accra. Had we been able to wait in the terminal, passengers could get their own food and the food for the flight could have been saved. Also, they ran out of chicken dishes by the time I was served and I was left with fish only. Had I been a vegetarian, this would have been unacceptable."

Pros: "the cabin crew was wonderful. We were delayed by half hour on board they kept us informed and the service was excellent"

Pros: "SN (Brussels Airlines) took on them to organize a flight via Lufthansa. this as soon as they had the info about the strike,."
Cons: "remained cancelled! Olympic did not bother to help or communicate. it was a flight operated by Olympic !"

Pros: "The food served was wonderful, as well as service."

Pros: "The food served was wonderful, as well as service."

Pros: "leg space is quite big"
Cons: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"

Pros: "Excellent staff"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight from Brussels to Kinshasa was different. It seems for the people of color, there was an old plane. My seat mate TV sCreek did not work. You could tell moldings on seat were very old. one bathroom had no soap, dispenser was broken. I hope this is not your pratice to use your older planes for those traveling to Africa. I will observe this as I travel back to Brussel and on to US."

Cons: "stuck between 2 overweight people with no possibility of moving because flight was fully booked."

Cons: "Audio didn't work, broken tray that the food and drink could fall, unresponsive crew staffs (they consistently ignored my call and even turned off the call light above my seat-they just didn't do anything)"

Pros: "In-flight staff are professional and try to get on with things even in tricky situations."
Cons: "Inbound connection from Tokyo was late (1 hour) but this flight BRU-MAN was also 1 hour late, so got to the gate easily in time for boarding only to find my seat and boarding pass had been cancelled! Poor management of the situation - they don't check whether the connection is *actually* OK, just use the timetable. Poor real-time handling of the situation. This flight is sometimes subcontracted out to WDL who fly various other flights for SN throughout the day, and so any delay elsewhere in Europe can delay this flight. Baggage priority ignored for Star Gold. Missed train connection on arrival in UK. Due to the above problems. In-flight staff OK but ground crew seem disorganised."

Cons: "We weren't allowed access to fill empty water bottles before boarding the plan. The plane made a stop at Kigali, Rwanda, where it was cleaned, resupplied and picked up passengers. It was almost 4 hrs. before we were offered water to drink. Drinking water is vital for maintaining health while travelling."

"The crew was exceptionally kind. Communication in terms of gate changes could be better"

Pros: "Seats are ok but unable to recline"
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Cons: "Lower the aircondition temp, it was hot in the plane during flight"

Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats no conmfortable."
Cons: "Every time the same problems. Bording we have to wait almost an hour and then all the people have to wait for the bus in a very Small place(like animals) then at the bus... waiting in a full one untill someone says ok to ride.."

Pros: "Fast and smoothy check in"
Cons: "After arrival to budapest not platformy ready and waiting over 10minutes"

Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."

Cons: "not charge me for carry on luggage"

Cons: "I paid 3 tickets for my kids from Prishtine to Budapest online through Kayak and when they went to check in they didn’t accept the tickets!!! They made them to buy new tickets because they didn’t accept those that I bought online.!! When I asked why they it happen they lady From call center turned the phone off."

Pros: "Smooth"
Cons: "All was fine"

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: "crew and boarding was nice"
Cons: "don't stop the airplane 5 miles from the terminal in a pouring rain making everyone have to walk to the gate and getting soaked."

Pros: "Prices on in flight purchases"
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculous, check in lady had no idea what an infant is and how their own app works. Suggested us to use the e-gate with an infant and angrily put us at the back of the cue. The infant wanted to breastfeed..."

Pros: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."

Cons: "Staff could of been friendlier. They would not give me a cup of water and said i had to buy a bottle."

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."

Pros: "The crew was so helpful and nice"
Cons: "I was happy with everything"

Pros: "Flight arrived"
Cons: "Flight left vaguely late, air stewardess disappeared into the cockpit for 50 minutes. Hmm, I wonder what she was doing in the cockpit. Whatever she was doing she wasn’t helping the cart so I only got my food 20 mins before landing approach. Air pressure was weird too, nice American lady next to me had problems with her ears more than usual."

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

Cons: "I went up to the check in desk 4 hours prior check since this was a connecting flight.I asked the employee when can I check in,she told me 1 and a half hour prior boarding,when I walked back the same person told me I have to pay 35 euros for not checking in online.I told her that I have been flying for about 20 years but I have never been charged for checking in at the airport and I also told her she should have told me when I asked her hours before.She just ignored me and gave me a shitty attitude at the Frankfurt airport.I was expecting a professional costumer service,like that I'm being used to by other airlines,but it was a total disappointment."

Pros: "Easy to book. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Would be good if there was complementary tea/coffee or water. People might then buy a snack to go with it."

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."

Cons: "You have to inform the customers, that company needs you to have a visa"

Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "They are not organized. This company doesn’t have a transparent policy. Because I didn’t checked in on time I had to pay 35 euros. I was there 2 1/2 hours early and I almost missed the flight. I’m extremely upset"

Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Last minute boarding change & overall 1 hr delay"

Pros: "Cheap flights, priority boarding."
Cons: "No meal included, no entertainment provided"

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

Pros: "The staff - friendly, polite,, helpful and a nice uniform! No silly uncomfortable and unsuitable as in some airlines. Reasonably clean. Good price for a glass of wine and pac of dry fruit."
Cons: "Unable to understand tanoi messages - mumbling & too fast. Could not make out most of what staff said including why there was an hour's delay and safety procedures. If i were to bring an oversized and too heavy handluggage on board no doubt I wouldn't get away with it ! However the number of large and heavy bags passengers brought on board last night was ridiculous . It was a real struggle for people to find lockers for.their bags. Some people had quite a few. Delays take off and creates unnecessary chaos. Couldn't understand why I had to pay to check in online, obviously missed that when bookrd. Although I recall reading that it will cost if you check in the airport- so most likely my error. No facility or button to print boarding pass once checked in. No contact us button - I would like to change seat I booked for return but cannot see how to do this on line."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "-Crew were very rude, check in crew and flight attendants -Luggage and checking in fees not advertised enough. Too many people getting their money stolen by Wizz Air. - Boarding extremely chaotic and not organized."

Pros: "Super easy online check-in, comfortable plane, lovely crew"
Cons: "Waited a bit in a long hallway waiting for the last flightload of passengers to deplane."

Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"

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: "The staff was fine. We arrived on time."
Cons: "These discount flights from Luton are packed with obnoxious, drunken Brits going on holiday in Hungary. In future, I will fly from Heathrow. Besides, by the time one pays all the little incidental fees at WizzAir, the cost is about the same as the legacy carriers."

Cons: "Extra fees for baggage and tickets that were not disclosed. The check in was incredibly disorganized. No help was provided with problems."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."

Cons: ""Wizard of Oz Airlines" I'm surprised the pilots didn't ask for another hidden fee! Please book a full fair on a major carrier instead of hidden fee fiasco at the airport. headaches before a flight. Keep in mind no wizz staff to talk to before flight or in Budapest. Private contractors from airport do all the check in process and departures."

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: "Crampt seats, mob to board the plane, hour delay with no reason given."

Pros: "The weather was nice."
Cons: "The boarding was announced 30 minutes before the beginning of the procedure. All the passengers were standing in the queue, without any possibilities to sit down. At Luton there is no connection among the announcements and the actual status of the boarding of a particular plane."

Cons: "The application doesn't allow to add carrier bag check in and we paid high fee in the airport"

Cons: "Long wait in line to get on the airplane, No bathroom availability!"

Pros: "It was simple, every thing was fast in the airport."
Cons: "Small airplane it was a bit choked."

Pros: "Nice new plane and caught up time even though it was late leaving left Luton late"
Cons: "Left late"

Pros: "The crue was excellent."
Cons: "i was surprised by the high extra charge we have been requested to pay for the suitcases. Wizz attracts clients by offering low prices. while in fact the price is much higher than with other companies. price paid for the suitcases, 235 eur, is an additional ticket. unbleivable. and no one tells us that the extra fees might be as high as the ticket itself. personnaly, in future, i shall avoid flying with wizz and i shall never recommend this company to anybody!"

Pros: "There really isn't a lot to like except the base ticket fare."
Cons: "They ticketing agent lost my luggage, after misreading the "package" I had to purchase just to check a bag. They had a push cart in which they sold perfumes and cosmetics. They charged for everything, including coffee and water."

Pros: "because Wizzair needs a way to terrorize psdsengers about luggage size. It did not affect me personally, but it is shooting and scary how Wizzair bitches about 1cm oversized bsgs"
Cons: "Wizzair has the worse reputstion ehen it comes to checkin and boarding. People still fly because it is cheap and poor people are willing to take a lot of terror to save a few bucks."

Cons: "I ordered a ticket and got a confirmation email. Unfortunately I could not check in online. I arrived at the airport and found out that I did not have a ticket. This story cost me a lot of money and a lot of time"

Cons: "TERRIBLE HORRIBLE SUCK"

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

Pros: "If you are just looking to get from point A to point A and don't expected anything additional you will be ok on this flight."

Cons: "I wasn't on this flight. I wasn't able to cancel or refund it."

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: "Nothing. Wiorst flight ever!"
Cons: "Ryan air has a paid checkin policy that we were not aware of. It was not written properly in the tickets or in any checkin prompts. Since we were traveling I couldn’t check in online. So reached the airport very early but they charged me to check in, that too a ridiculous amount of 100$. The crew was generally rude and non welcoming. The aircraft stops at the middle-of the airport in Budapest and we had to walk a very long stretch to get to the airport in the cold since the plane was not connected to a gate. For sone confusion they stopped boarding in the middle and passengers had to stand in the freezing cold , outside the aircraft , in the middle of the airport for a very long time. Hated the flight. Charges you for every single think you can think and not think off. Every passenger seemed frustrated"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendliness of crew."

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

Pros: "Exellent start and landing! Bravo pilots!"

Cons: "This is the terrible airlines that we have ever experienced. It’s not organized at all. After booking the ticket, I didn’t say we have to check in 2 hours prior to not to get charged at the airport. When we stand at the encounter, everyone in line didn’t know this and had to turn around to get in the different line to pay for checking in. After that, we had to get back in a long line and the lady didn’t mentioned that she can check in our luggage’s. With that being said, we had to go back to other encounter to pay for checked in luggage. We paid almost $200 for checking in and luggage. How stupid is that? We and other customers in line all said we felt it’s the rip off. We come to Ireland for vacation and expected it would be welcome and nice. This turned us off. Never fly with this airlines again. Thumbs down!!!"

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: "The gate staff did not make it clear where and when passengers with Priority seating should stand in line."

Cons: "RYanair always delayed (1h30 delay inbound, 2h delay outbound), that company is a disgrace"

Pros: "Hubo una persona discapacitada a la se necesitaba ayuda. Y le dijeron prioridad para sentarse primero en su silla del avión. Entonces las azafatas inmediatamente dejaron pasar los pasajeros creando así un bloqueo en medio del avión que tomó mucho tiempo."
Cons: "La comida estuvo bien. El servicio a la silla fue rapido.. Aunque los precios no son los mas económicos"

Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Service was not great. The baggage allowance was lower than other airlines, forcing us to repack before we checked our bags. Checking in online was mandatory-something that wasn’t very noticeable in the email when we had a million other trip details to attend to so we didn’t and ended up having to pay a fee to check in. Ridiculous. My wife and I were not seated together even though I booked both tickets together. The inexpensive upfront price of the flight is not worth it since they will trick you into paying in other ways."

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Pros: "El avión está nuevo y la tripulación está bien"
Cons: "No hicimos check in por internet y en el aeropuerto nos hicieron pagar 55 libras esterlinas por persona para hacer check in"

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"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Yes on time."
Cons: "Fine."

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: "Fair service for the amount spent"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The cabin crew"
Cons: "Budapest airport"

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: "Upright seats give more legroom"
Cons: "Queue, queue, queue Hugely confused luggage allowances - unclear even on boarding pass - urgently need overhaul and clarification"

Cons: "Slowly boarding, gate is cold, no seats, plane was in late 1,5 hour."

Pros: "Flight to Budapest from Stansted airport took off on time and landed 40 minutes early. The flight home was on schedule and I had an aisle seat both ways, couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Due to the high volume of passengers on the flight we had to put our luggage in the hold (for free) in both directions which caused a minor delay in our onward journey but nothing significant."

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: "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 like how inexpensive the flight was. This would make up for the other things had we not been seriously taken advantage when it came to our luggage!"
Cons: "We checked in online the night before our flight but didn't get a confirmation. We didn't think anything of it until we got to airport to find that we didn't show checked in, had to pay EXTRA to have our boarding passes printed off, and had to pay for EACH of our bags as well!! OH! And it's almost DOUBLE if you pay for it at the airport where you can weigh it then if you do it online! And take caution! Our bags that are considered carry on size are still too big for this airline do you will forced to check Them! This is obviously how they offset their inexpensive tickets! The cost of the ticket, once you add in all the other unexpected expenses in order to actually get on the flight, was NOT worth the "cheap" tickets we got! That's the only reason we decided to fly to Ireland while on our trip to the U.K. Had we known it would cost this much we never would have come to Ireland for two days!!"

Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "Called to gate only to then have to wait over an hour before boarding. No info given just stood there like lemons. Also they do their upmost to make you pay to sit next to each other! I know they are trying to make as much profit as poss but just annoying."

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: "Lots of interEuropean routes."
Cons: "Online check-in is mandatory but unless I'd checked online I would not have known and been charged £50 at the airport counter during bag drop. This is an unethical cash machine for Ryanair that penalises travellers who might not be computer literate or online - a big brand turnoff."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything, firstly I checked in early as recommended to find that my wife and I were not sat together. It gave me the option to change one of our seats, stating that it would only increase in cost if we select a more expensive seat. It turns out there were more free seats than reserved but to sit next to my wife (without changing hers) it was going to cost £10, no idea why as they hadn't selected her a more expensive seat. Guess what.....the exact same happened when checking in on our return journey, can't wait to board the plane in a couple of days! When arriving at the airport it is clear Ryanair are removing staff to keep cost down with no care for passenger satisfaction, you check your bags in automatically which appears a scam for over weighing your cases and charging you without having to speak to you. It coat us £10 for being over a kilo, we didn't believe we were but paid it as we thought we had no choice because no staff were close by. A couple beside us were supposedly 3 kilos over and believed this to be incorrect, they kicked off enough of a fuss to be able to go check in face to face and not pay a single penny, doesn't quite seem fair? The final nail in the coffin was the fact that at 8.45 (our supposed departure time) we were stuck in a huge queue watching people get off the plane we were due to board. No delays or hold ups had been announced yet we should have been boarding at 8.15 and told to go to our gate as normal for this time. No plain in sight and when it arrives we can't go straight on as people are getting off it! All in all Ryanair have been awful so far and I am dreading our flight home!"

Pros: "I like the fact that the flight landed to my destination."
Cons: "I paid for extra luggage fees, and paid for an assigned very tiny seat. Crew members declined me to use bathroom but allowed other passenger to use it. The plane was delayed to depart on time, and no explanation whatsoever. For a original flight time of one hour and a half trip, the plane landed more than an hour later than scheduled, so it took almost 3 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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late no communication stuck in a queue at airport and no one said a word for over an hour! Will never use again"

Pros: "Boarding was reasonably slick. Staff were very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Disembarking was aWful. Flight was packed and the buses from landing site to airport entry were rammed. At least 6 passengers left standing outside the bus for a good 10 minutes with indecisive ground crew pacing, staring and disappearing with no solution until a senior member arrived and squeezed people into the driver's cabin. Seat space is pretty tight. Not the most comfortable. Not a fan of trekking to Stanstead but it was earliest flight so no option but Ryanair"

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

Pros: "Flight and crew and service were good once we got to the gate and on the plane."
Cons: "We were required to have a printed boarding pass, and since we were traveling it was difficult to get prior to getting to the airport. Once we got to the airport, we were bandied about from one desk to another, then told we would have to go spend money at a computer/printer station, or else pay 15 pounds."

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."

Cons: "Printing my boarding pass at home to make sure I didn't have to pay a 50 euro fee. It's hard enough to do it right before you leave, but we couldn't print anything for the flight back to Brussels."

Cons: "I was told "if you wanted to take a cabin bag in the cabin, then you should have flown with British Airways""

Pros: "Everything seemed very efficient and was run with no time wasted."

Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "We followed all carryon size and weight guidelines and passenger carried on bags much larger and heavier than ours. Why did we bother?"

Pros: "I liked the fact that my initial ticket was a good value. I liked arriving safely and on time. A Ryanair attendant took me under her wing and made sure I made my flight, without her, I would not have made it. I am thankful for her."
Cons: "Ryanair is not for the uninitiated. Nor for those who don't read the fine print. My baggage fees were not included, nor were the extra heavy baggage fees. My flight change fees were also as much money as my initial ticket. I almost missed my flight because of the extra time required to add in and pay for all of these fees. All told, at the end of the experience, I ended up spending 400% of the cost of my initial ticket. Be wary, be informed, read the fine print, and then be prepared for shamelessly overt marketing, uncaring bored male flight attendants, and a shabby dirty plane covered in cheap vinyl and bill boards. Next time I will pay any price to avoid this experience."
