Pros: "Premium Economy was very comfortable"
Cons: "Food was delivered in a hurry just after we embarked A bit more relaxed would have been better"

Cons: "All good."

Pros: "All crews are kind, friendly and excellent services, the handling of missed flight is good."
Cons: "The plane is too old lots of things falling apart, toilet door, tv screen and its remote control ect .."

Cons: "Nonexistent leg room. Made me check my carryon bag but did come to reclaim pretty quickly. Couldn’t even get water without a charge."

Pros: "Good seats at back of plane"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, food was quite good as far as airlines go, chicken korma not bad at all."
Cons: "The premium economy seats are hard, and you really notice that on a long-haul flight. It was at least spacious and offered a reasonable degree of recline. WiFi was expensive and unreliable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed more than an hour due to mishandling of baggage - was at runway for takeoff and was called back to the gate because a bag was loaded that should not have been."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "It is ridiculous to have elderly passengers made to carry heavy luggage up and down multiple steep stairways. This happened in Dublin, Edinburgh and of all places, Heathrow was the worst. There is no excuse not to have level walkways and Entrances to these large planes. Totally unacceptable given the prices we pay to travel."

Pros: "The plane was huge with lots of empty seats. This is better than my flight out, which was oversold (I was the person who didn't have a seat, until just before departure when someone else didn't show up). The seats appeared to be new."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. No information was available about what gate the delayed flight would be departing from, which made it difficult to relax while waiting due to fears of missing the flight whenever it finally took off. The electronic flight list said to check the monitor at 6:38pm to find out what gate would be used (for a 5:30pm flight). I checked the monitor at 6:14 and it said the flight was boarding. This seems like a recipe for making people miss the flight. At the very least it made things stressful. No free food/beverages were provided (some is available at a cost). A family with a very tired baby was forced to wait in a huge long line rather than being pre-boarded. That just seems discourteous to me."

Pros: "All the flight attendants were so friendly and helpful! Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."

Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "BA lost my baggage on my flight over and I missed my conference as a result of it. On the way home I was late for my flight as a result of a flat tire and BA did not help me get on another flight they basically said good luck and purchase another flight."

Pros: "The modern plane and comfortable seats, fast boarding with little queue"
Cons: "The new strange self check in and baggage drop proceedure"

Cons: "Boarding takes longer on BA than any other airline I've flown on. Breakfast was awful. Cream cheese on a white roll tastes like paste. You'll really could be doing better than this."

Pros: "On time."

Cons: "We were late to our outbound flight due to our other flight being delayed from weather. We went to the ticket desk area, which was closed and were directed to another help desk. Once at the front the attendent refused to help us and sent us to another desk at the other end of the terminal. After waiting in another long line, the attendent told us we had missed all flights to Edinburgh. There lack of staff and customer service caused us to miss all flights and trains into Edinburgh. On top of that, we were notified our flight back to London would be cancelled because we missed our outbound flight and that she could not provide us with any credits or refunds that we would need to call customer service. We lost the money we spent on our Edinburgh hotel and had no way to get to our vacation."

Cons: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Why have they destroyed this once great airline. Better choice of destinations and better prices and similar poor service from the Budget Airlines..Once I return I WILL NOT fly BA ever again."
Cons: "Paying top dollar for the fare and the being asked to pay for the food and drink which was hugely overpriced anyway. They are now an Expensive no-frills budget service airline."

Pros: "Nice legroom in world plus."
Cons: "Wish there was live TV for sports."

Cons: "BA loaded drinks but no food onto flight. They "forgot". Paying only by credit/debit card is a time consuming nightmare. Without food, they were faster. Accept cash. Or allow pre-purchase online."

Pros: "Crew was great. Process of boarding and disembarking was fine."
Cons: "Space in regards to seating is inadequate"

Pros: "Good experience."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Rude flight crew!"

Pros: "The subject says it all."

Cons: "Went through vayama, for this booking. Arrived for a 1:45 pm flight, which I had paperwork for. Jay Informed me, that a flight change to an am flight was emailed to me in December! No follow up email....say a week before?! Like all the other booking sites I use. Spent another night, in Ediinburgh, plus much money for new tickets. Two airport layovers. Will never go through this site again, rate it poorly and not recommend. Thanks, Vickie Varney"

Cons: "Disorganised"

Pros: "There was sufficient leg room in seating."
Cons: "No drink or snack during flight. Made it seem like a cut-rate airline. Had to board across the tarmac and up the steps as if we were on a "puddle-jumper.""

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had connection flight from Edinburgh to Amman with 1 hour 20 minutes layover in heathrow we had delay around 2 hours in Edinburgh we arrived 20 min before LHR-AMM flight and we missed our flight"

Pros: "Food and service was great. Pilot made trip smooth"
Cons: "Boarding at edinburgh was confusing."

Cons: "Boarding security very bad"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I spent e hours in the airport getting rebooked, shuffled, finding my checked luggage, and being treated like an inconvience. I will never fly British Air again."

Cons: "I on line checked in but it only checked me in for this flight and not my next flight which meant I was on standby. Agent at check-in could not change it."

Pros: "It was the beginning of school holidays so mobbed but we all got on the plane"
Cons: "Security at Edinburgh was tough for thise of us not used to the 'clear bag' policy. One steward (German guy? ) seemed to be in a permanant bad mood. And once we got to Heathrow, the jet bridge did not work, so we could see our luggage leaving the plane before we did!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The boarding crew from Edinburgh did not allow me to bring my carry on despite it being very light and within size restriction. They said this was because the plane was already full with others' luggage and could not handle my bag for safety. Had to shove my things in a Tesco carrier bag and in my daughters small backpack on wheels. The backpack broke later as it was not made to carry more than a few books. And to top it off, the suitcase I was made to check never made it on my connecting flight to Chicago. I am still waiting for it to be delivered 36 hours later. This suitcase is virtually empty. Well, it's actually carrying a pair of sunglasses and my phone charger. totally inconvenienced and the crew saved the plane from being dangerously overloaded by an empty suitcase. Absolute nonsense."

Cons: "The queuing process was not efficient, the packing of people on a shuttle bus was dangerous with the number of people squashed onto the bus and then we had to wait on the bus for quite a while for the determination to be made that the flight was ready. Once on the flight, the hanging flap that separates the first class from economy, was loosely hanging and rattled fiercely and on lift-off swung back toward our faces. We had to pay 4 pounds for a coke and weird coffee. Then we had to circle London while we waited to land because of the IT mess in London."

Cons: "You can't even get a water to drink without paying"

Cons: "Had to pay for any food or drink."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Reached 20 mins before time Leg space was ample."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Small sits for three people"

Pros: "It was a short flight, so didn't need much."
Cons: "Charged for food, even water. Boarding pass had one gate, but flight actually boarded from a different gate. No one there to tell us, no announcement. Good thing I checked board. No entertainment system."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air conditioning did not work in my section of the cabin The entertainment center felt like a 1960s generation VCR, esp the navigation and video quality. The selection was terrible. Food was terrible and unhealthy. Toilet seemed to have an air leak, extremely noisy air being sucked down sink. Aircraft appeared old and obsolete."

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"

Cons: "Little close on the connection"

Cons: "Some passengers were allowed to drink excessively becoming very loud and continually bumping into aisle-seated passengers."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost our luggage both at destination and on return to Chicago. Also canceled flights resulting in having to stay overnight at layover location spending night sleeping on sofa without blankets. Due to cancelled flight we didn't get to spend night in hotel I already payed for and now will lose day of work. My daughter and I will never travel with these are lines again. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED AND ANGRY. AMERICAN AIRWAYS AND BRITISH AIRWAYS are huge disappointment to us."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Being trapped at Edinburgh airport. The incompetence of BA. The shocking state of their aircraft. Their inability to understand customer service."

Pros: "food was better than expected and not too pricy"
Cons: "no delay!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight was comfortable however the boarding process was a bit disorganized but I’m pretty sure that was an airport issue"

Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding was speedy"
Cons: "Late departure and late arrival."

Pros: "Didn't need to worry about my bag being larger than a handbag"
Cons: "Why is it always my flight that's delayed????"

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

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: "On time and nice staff"
Cons: "No vegan options on menu other than crisps......."

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: "Crew were excellent and the flight was without faults"

Pros: "Punctuallity & cabin crews"

Pros: "What a landing from the pilot. Straight from the aviation textbook."
Cons: "12 min delay."

Pros: "It was average"
Cons: "The hour delay"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. They were very apologetic - customer service was great."
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Cons: "Boarding delayedchaotic"

Pros: "Everything went to schedule and the crew dealt with an illness emergency without fuss and I am sure more than half the passengers never knew about it."

Pros: "Overall Easyjet is an ok airline, I will continue to fly with them, however, small things like paying extra for speedy boarding and then not having a separate line is a real disappointment. Given the option I would pay a the extra to fly with a better airline, however, being from Northern Ireland we are limited to what we can have."

Cons: "Flight left late. Hand luggage bag had to be checked in. I had to go straight to work after I Ianded so didn’t appreciate the extra 20 minutes wait at the luggage carousel. I was told the overhead lockers were full, which they weren’t."

Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "had to wait nearly an hour from departure lounge then on the plane before takeoff. Felt we were being herded like cattle and then left to stew in a holding room before allowed access to plane."

Cons: "Flight delayed by over 2 hours (19.05 flight)... Even the 20.30 flight left before us! Zero communication from ground staff, no food vouchers. Extremely poor!"

Pros: "No food or entertainment."

Pros: "Kept well informed about ghastly delay"
Cons: "3 hours 11 mins late arrival at destination"

Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised with how comfortable the flight was and the efficiency."

Pros: "Staff were good. EasyJet kept us informed. There is a high degree of efficiency and you are treated as a paying passenger rather than cattle."
Cons: "Delays seem inevitable with EasyJet on the Belfast route. I can't remember the last time we had one that wasn't delayed by more than half an hour. The scheduled time is longer than any flight has taken, but I think this is actually a realistic approach given the probability of a delay. There is an issue with 2-3 year olds and seat belts - they are not allowed to travel on a parent's lap, but they can wriggle out a lap belt easily and so are unsecured."

Pros: "Exactly as the title says. Really quick."
Cons: "Nothing"

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"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "None"

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."

Pros: "No delays"

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

Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"

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."

Cons: "Flight late again, plane filthy. Not good enough."

Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "Long wait time for luggage to appear on carousel"

Cons: "Boarding halfway through was delayed, had to wait on the ground at Bristol for some unknown ground staff person to turn up before we could disembark"

Pros: "Good flight - nothing much to report other than it was a flight without any hassles."

Cons: "no WIFI"

Pros: "Smooth experience from boarding to landing, staff efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late."

Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"

Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."

Pros: "Absolutely no information given by airline staff or airport staff."

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."

Cons: "very long delay with no real reason given"

Pros: "Flight was low price and the cabin uncrowded."
Cons: "Boarding the flight in Edinburgh was delayed by forty minutes. Delays at Gatwick waiting for coaches to arrive before we could disembark and get to the terminal."

Pros: "Flight to Luton was great and even though we arrived at the gate when boarding had commenced, staff were still helpful and gave us priority boarding. Return journey was an hour which was really cool but alas..."
Cons: "...all the time savings I thought we'd made quickly evaporated after landing - we couldn't disembark until over 15mins after landing and another 45mins to reclaim baggage. With two children aged 3years and 6 months, the experience wasn't really great at all. Only reason why I'm not giving less than 3 stars are for the positives mentioned above."

Pros: "I liked the price of the flight compared to other airlines, I likEd the colour of the airline and how clean it was. I liked the fact that the flight was uneventful and completed. I liked it that we did not get delayed and I liked the professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I didn't like it that you did not carry pillows. I didn't like the food trolly, would much prefer a set meal."

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: "I really enjoyed my window seat. The flight was on time and sightly early which was great."
Cons: "I didn’t realize it was an outdoor boarding process so i wasn’t prepared for the rain. But i will be ready next time!"

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cambiaron la puerta de salida al otro lado del aeropuerto e "iniciaron" el abordaje tan rápido, que los pasajeros no habíamos llegado, luego nos hicieron esperar una hora de pie en la fila, un completo desorden y falta de organización"

Pros: "Fast boarding"

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."

Cons: "They don’t accept credit cards from USA."

Cons: "My travel agent could not check us in as she did not realize she need passport info, exp. date, and birth date and we couldn't reach her in time to get us checked in with the time difference. It cost us an extra 115 pounds to checkin at the airport. That is ridiculous!"

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: "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."

Cons: "A horrible airline. They charge you for everything, you have to pay a checked baggage fee for both ways. I bought a round trip ticket, if I'm bringing luggage, I'm going to want to bring that luggage back with me. You have to pay if you have more than one cabin bag, everyone boards at the same time, the plane is cramped and old. The landing was just us slamming into the runway. I can't tell you about the staff because I never saw anyone that worked there"

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: "I actually received my checked bag on the other side, so that's good."
Cons: "Positively, unimaginably unenjoyable in every other way."

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"

Cons: "Very rude counter help. Long lines for non E U members"

Cons: "No customer service, hidden fees, rude staff, small plane"

Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everytime I fly Edinburgh to Dublin and in the reverse direction I am delayed. This has happened for 4 return journeys I have made in the past 10 months. Last night's delay meant I missed my 3hr bus home to Galway and had to wait until 6.30am!!! Why is this flight alway always delayed. This has also happened to my family on different occasions, Why??"

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "We were late. Left standing for boarding out in the cold. The entire flight is spent with crew trying to sell you one thing or another. There is no break for peace. Buy these tickets buy these duty free items etc etc...seats are awful too!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That they over charge over €50 for not checking online. And not being warned about it on the reservation. Cramped seats, it was giving sounds all the flight."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable and very clean. You could tell it was a newer aircraft. The crew was very polite."
Cons: "Charging a fee to check-in at the airport is ridiculous. Not every traveller has access to a computer/printer when they travel so that can be big hassel for customers. We didn't have to deal with this, but it could stress out other customers."

Cons: "Tiny seats, baggage policy is garbage"

Pros: "Crew on board was fine."
Cons: "Tried to check in only days and hours before. No one could help me navigate. At one point, 5 hours prior to the flight they said I would be upcharged $100.00 then hung up on."

Cons: "Paid for priority boarding, first on the bus, not on the plane. Delayed 2 hours, and 3 gate changes."

Cons: "The carry on bag size... my bag is the proper size because I made the purchase special for the trip. When they checked the size, the wheels made it to large. Then I was charged £45 which was more than the cost of the flight. Baggage agent was very rude."

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: "The availability to go from Ireland and Scotland was very nice. The cost was cheap with an additional fee for everything else. I did purchase an extra bag at 20kg before. I also paid 5 GBP for priority seating. Your ticket is your phone or a print out. There is no entertainment, possibly with the exception of conversation. You could purchase limited food items."
Cons: "The plane numbers did not seem to correspond to the download. I had to check the screen by town and I was vaguely concerned I might have made a mistake. The gates changed twice. Or, they announced the wrong gate change the first time."

Pros: "It made it there"
Cons: "It was a half an hour late. My fourth Ryanair flight that was at least a half hour late. I thought they were known for arriving on time."

Cons: "This was the WORST flying experience of my life. You have to check in online otherwise they scam you out of tons of money. Seems pretty straight forward right? WRONG! They don't send you an email when it's time to check in. They will also send you on a wild goose chase through an airport and have NO CUSTOMER SERVICE WHAT SO EVER. I will never fly with them or their affiliates again."

Cons: "Lots of lines for a long time. No explanation about the delay until we were on the plane. Also lots of added costs after the initial low fare."

Pros: "Room for my bag."
Cons: "Changed Gates at boarding time, twice. Taxied for almost an hour before take off. I was on an aisle seat and the crew kept bumping into me, somehow even when I leaned the other way."

Cons: "Rude representatives and terrible organization."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "30 minutes late, not enough room for everyone's baggage, small seat next to large guy"

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."

Pros: "Not much. I'll never fly Ryanair again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ryan air is the worst airline I have ever encounter. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THEM."

Cons: "The have good plans flying at reasonable rate and good schedules. If the seat is a bit stiff and the hard surfaces reflect noise...I take that into account when iBook the flight.."

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

Pros: "Initial price was good but a bait and switch if not a carry-on commuter."
Cons: "Check online was difficult to understand and took several attempts to complete. Expensive airport checking option was 45 Pounds. Birthday year started at 2000 and had to be scrolled back a couple of months at a time. Misunderstood adding luggage and had to pay 35 Pounds at a/p for 1 passengers bag. Hated the experience!"

Pros: "Had seat assignment with my husband. Short easy flight"
Cons: "Seats didn't adjust. Plane could have been cleaner"

Cons: "Airport checking fee Baggage fee 45 pounds Crew behavior"

Pros: "Only flight from Edinburgh to Ireland that fit our time schedule."
Cons: "The outrageous add-on costs; e.g. having to pay for a boarding pass at the airport. We had been traveling around Scotland for ten days and on our last night we were at a place where we had no access to a printer. Also the cost of one piece of luggage seemed excessive - I would rather it had been included in the ticket price and paid up front."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable Confusing check in with no help or assistance. Employees answer questions like you should already know the answer. Standing outside waiting to board"

Pros: "They did not crash the plane"
Cons: "nickel & dimed entire process. Crew hates their lives so they yell at passengers. They would not allow you to lower your window shade at any point during the flight and would verbally assault you if you did."

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: "Cheap flight Was on time and got us to our destination on time"
Cons: "Had to pre-print our own boarding pass before getting to the airport or you pay 45 euros more if you don't. Lost my friend's luggage The price of bringing a bag is kind of ridiculous."

Pros: "The flight was fine. The on board staff was competent."
Cons: "I was not able to use the flight to Edinburgh so this information pertains to my flight from Edinburgh to Dublin. Myself and two friends on the same flight arrived at the airport very early because we were warned we needed extra time for customs. Little did we know that the extra time we needed was to make sure we didn't miss our flight due to the incompetence of the Ryan air staff checking baggage. But actually even before that, you need to be aware that you'll pay another $15 if you are in the same situation we were in and are unable to print your boarding pass. When we arrived to check baggage their automated system was not working. This appeared related to payment however there didn't appear to be anyone in the long line able to do this. We were subsequently sent back and forth about six different places in order to Just check our one piece of luggage each. One of my friends was directed to a separate line at one point and the agent started yelling at us while we were in line. There was only one poor woman who knew what she was doing having to handle several of us who were angry (not just us), as well as a long line of passengers trying to also check their bags. As I said I would not fly Ryan Air again if you paid me! In the long run you pay more between their "extras" and the aggravation."

Pros: "The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a very rough landing, the roughest I've ever had. Also the airline tries to gouge people by having unexpected costs such as that for luggage. No baggage is included but that is in the fine print or not explained at all so when you get to the airport you have to buy luggage for the flight which unsurprisingly, is more expensive at the airport rather than online."
