Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."
Cons: "Food and seats"
Cons: "I travelled economy and found the seats not very enabling for big and tall folks as myself ! Other than that I highly recommend flying Lufthansa"
Pros: "S380 nice plane"
Cons: "Food lousy Late leaving Singapore caused much difficulty"
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."
Cons: "Had to wait in tarmac forever from Frankfurt to Florence"
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"
Cons: "Freezing cold temperature Too small seats Food dropped on travel partner Poor choices of food and snacks Gone down since last time years ago"
Pros: "Flight crew made up time to arrive on time despite late arrival. They are pretty amazing - they got a plane hundreds of miles in the same time it took the ground crew to get my bag from the plane to the baggage claim."
Cons: "Frankfurt is just an awful airport. Too many landings and not enough infrastructure. Also tired of planes having to park thousands of yards from the terminal. The time to get the bag is as long as the flight. Each about 55 minutes. There is very little about German efficiency here."
Pros: "Timely departure and landing"
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was outstanding!"
Cons: "Flight late"
Cons: "Had two stop over in Germany so they wont let me board stating need German visa. Requested for rerouting from FRA to USA direct, but lufthansa did nothing to help other than make me stranded had to travel with totally different airliner. Horrible experience with them..."
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."
Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"
Pros: "Food service everything"
Cons: "Everything was just perfect"
Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."
Pros: "The crew was competent and friendly. Once we missed our connection, the "help desk" was accommodating, though we had to stand in line for a long, long time before they could help us."
Cons: "We were delayed leaving Munich and the pilot simply said he had no explanation. The delay, combined with massive dysfunction at the Newark airport, caused us to miss our connection to RDU. We ended up in an airport hotel where we caught four hours' sleep before returning to the airport. Newark airport is the worst I've ever experienced. Getting our passports stamped took more than an hour. There were five officials there to clear five or six hundred U.S. passport holders. Then, the TSA people were rude, inefficient, and achingly slow. Overall, it was a horrible experience."
Cons: "Right before boarding I checked to see about purchasing an upgrade to business for my Wife and I because she was not feeling well and the added room would help. The Rude desk clerk didn’t even check and just spit out no upgrades. Yet once on the plane there were several empty business class seats and they stayed empty the entire flight."
Cons: "Leg space"
Cons: "Always the same mess in Frankfurt to get into terminal Z, surely waited 30 minutes and almost lost connection. Food quality mediocre at best. Lost luggage, no Lufthansa representative around at baggage claim."
Pros: "I enjoyed the sleep."
Cons: "No enough leg room for a slender Man of 5 foot 7 inches."
Cons: "Food was completely tasteless - of very questionable quality"
Pros: "My first time flying with Lufthansa was outstanding. Great service, super friendly and ready to please. Appreciated the free adult beverages and frequent availability of water during the long, dehydrating flight. In-flight movies were fun to pass the time."
Cons: "Disembarked the plane in a lot and had to shuttle back to the terminal. Not a big issue but much prefer disembarking at the terminal."
Cons: "Plane delayed. Then when on board, pilot apologized due to the very warm cabin as "the auxilariary power unit isn't working." Then long delay because the baggage ground crew messed up and again according to the pilot "we apologize for the ground crew's failure to do their job properly and some baggage wasn't loaded properly." Once we landed we had like 20 minutes to go through security AGAIN and nearly missed the final flight to our Seattle destination. No mention of local time upon landing, no one at gate to direct lots of people rushing for connections."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and professional. Like the use of warm towels. Most overseas airlines no longer do this"
Cons: "This is a brand new airplane. The size of these seats has hit a new low. To expect an adult to spend 8 hours crammed into this thing is barbaric. It's been a week and my back still right. Enough already."
Pros: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Pros: "Short flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delayed even though the plane was there and clean. A 2205 flight didn't leave until 2240 causing many of us to miss our train. No crew ever mentioned why flight was delayed or when we would get moving."
Cons: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Pros: "Overall good."
Cons: "Quantity of food served was very less. They could have given more."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "Competitor airlines like Emirates are way ahead of the curve when it comes to value for the money for the economy customers."
Cons: "Seating is cramped up. Entertainment options are mediocre."
Pros: "You disappointed me"
Pros: "I like to fly LH on the BOS to FRA route as they are the only carrier to fly this route nonstop. Usually the service is quite good. The crew is attentive, offers water or juice repeatedly, gives you a warm moist handcloth before the mealservice to clean your hands. Check-in in FRa can be tedious becaiuse of long lines."
Cons: "LH experienced several strikes in the last two years or so. Once I had to stay an extra day, this time I had to cut a family visit a day short. While they handled the rebooking in both cases quite efficiently, not everyone might have the flexibility to change days so easily. It is also disappointing when one has to give up on a planned activity to make it back home on time. Movie selection could be updated and I miss having an actual newspaper or magazine to read on the long flight. Will have to pack my own oin the future."
Cons: "Very crowded, the lady behind us was coughing her lungs out the whole flight. Flight was smooth but arrived behind schedule. Actually landed on time but we didn't get to the terminal for almost 15 minutes. The Frankfurt airport is a nightmare, worst designed airport I have been through."
Pros: "Flew Boing -747 in economy. Wireless internet was nice, but very slow. Food was good, crew was offering water and juice quite often during a flight. Right on schedule. Good price, but had to cough up $100 for a second piece of luggage."
Cons: "Strange selection of movies, outdated earphones, USB wasn't charging my phone."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was kind and helpful."
Pros: "I like that everything is done fairly quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "It may be a cultural thing for some, but two of the flight attendants did not smile at all. Not even really an acknowledgement when I said hello to them. And I tried throughout the flight to see if it was just because they were too busy or simply did not hear or notice me. It's not a big deal now, but it can be if the whole staff were to become silent and non-interactive."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, no information given, no compensation offered. Next day took the same flight. Bad food, uncomfortable seats, and this was in business class. All around Lufthansa is like a US airline. No thanks."
Pros: "...and not for the first time.. And won't be the last.."
Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."
Cons: "My baggage was lost. Still no word about it."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and polite."
Cons: "There was no specially designed space to hang costumes, which was surprising for international flights. All overhead bins were full, so my ballroom dress is completely wrinkled now meaning that I need to spend extra money to steam it."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Food was ok."
Cons: "Delay, twice - before we boarded and then again after we taxied."
Cons: "I didn't make this flight because of the reasons mentioned above."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was excellent, the food and service was excellent, no complaints except for legroom."
Cons: "I'm a pretty tall guy. Legroom was an issue if you are over 6 ft tall. The trey's / tables can't fully extend making it hard to use for eating."
Cons: "I wanted to check 2 bags, even though you only get one free checked bag for economy international. The desk agent at check-in wouldn't check my second bag and didn't know how much the fee even was for the second bag. She was not exactly pleasant, which might have been because it was 430 in the morning but still. I just ended up carrying on two pretty big bags. The crew ended up gate checking one for me in Frankfurt which was nice. But I would have paid not to carry that dumb thing around with me through the giant Frankfurt airport. Other than the one desk woman in Prague, everything else was good."
Pros: "So rude crew"
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"

Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."

Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."
Pros: "Food and service"

Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."

Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
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: "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"
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: "Crew members were welcoming, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Stood st the gate 30 minutes and then they changed the gate. Went to the new gate, stood in line again and they changed the gate AGAIN. Walked to the new gate and stood in line about another 30 minutes then once checked in and walked down the jetway, we were stopped again and had to wait!! Then we were delayed on the jetway waiting to load bags and once we started going, there were several planes ahead of us so we sat on the tarmac and waited some more. Flight arrived in Dublin more than 2 hours late!"
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"
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!"
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: "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."
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!!"
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."
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."
Cons: "Ryan air is the worst airline I have ever encounter. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THEM."
Pros: "The flight was painless and the staff were very kind throughout the flight."
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."
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."
