Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."

Cons: "Flight could’ve arrived on time."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Not much leg room"

Cons: "Nothing at this point"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice There are always delays"
Pros: "Preferential boarding was useful as the flight was full and cabin baggage space was tight."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The flight itself was quite quick and the staff on board were very nice"

Pros: "No delays"
Pros: "Forget the flight, think where you’re heading!! Old Lisbon, Chiado, is well worth a visit. Almost seems like time stopped with all the architecture. People are friendly and not too pushy while selling you intems. Well worth a visit as a city break. B&B €25 for two per night!!"
Cons: "What would you expect from a great name? Still have to be disappointed! But while in Lisbon learn some words in Portuguese. They’re essential. If they see that that you’re making an effort, they’ll appreciate it more. Speak in foreign and straight away your price rises!"

Pros: "Crew ok."

Pros: "Good flight - nothing much to report other than it was a flight without any hassles."
Cons: "no WIFI"
Cons: "i was told by Easyjet that no flight for me on that day. I had flight from lisbon to frankfurt also. The customer suggested to buy ticket of TAP portugal which I did. Told to apply for compensation by email. Please help me in this regard. It was bad experience."
Cons: "Nos antendieron mal en el aeropuerto , mucha negligencia . No nos decían nada hasta la puerta de embarque . Consideró uno de los peores servicios brindados ."
Pros: "We had difficulty trying to add baggage fare for our flight from Funchal to Lisbon and do I thought I would settle it when we hot to the airport. This was not such a good idea I discovered as they charged $94 euros for one large and one small piece of luggage. Almost as much as the fare itself. I have flown on many airlines in many countries and have never experienced baggage fees this high."
Cons: "The chairs dose not move. So it's not very comfortable to sit on"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, and boarding relatively easy."
Cons: "I waited over an hour after the flight to pick up my luggage- something that is completely unacceptable to me."
Pros: "Airport facilities in Edinburgh. No waiting time at security. Water fountaine after security."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by nearly 1 hr. No information of it until 15 min before the scheduled take off time, inspite of me signing up to text alerts at the flight booking. Boarding via bus and just 1 staircase. Passengers with children under 5 years announced to board first, but no chance as no way through unorganised crowd of passengers waiting."
Pros: "Put us into hotel in Madrid, because of redirection"
Cons: "Delayed departure and, when checking in at Madrid airport, total confusion, lack of direction to (tired) passengers and minimal staff"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after they told us it was just delayed. They did not re-book us on any other flight or airlne, therefore, they left us stranded to fend for ourselves. The expenses and reimbursement claim process is quite lengthy. I'm not at all impressed with EasyJet"
Pros: "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: "The flight was really fast!"
Pros: "I was in Emergency row by myself!"
Cons: "I felt like I was always being sold something throughout the Ryanair experience. It’s too much."
Cons: "Communication, comfort, customer service, timeliness"

Pros: "Crew were polite and friendly. Aircraft was clean and comfortable and the price was unbeatable."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Late boarding and twenty minutes late taking off then no staff to meet the plane when it landed in Stansted for 40 minutes so I missed the train I was booked on which cost me more than the return flight to renew my train ticket"
Cons: "Having to now pay and queue for cabin baggage is treating customers like dirt. Flight was one hour late to Dublin so missed my connection. Best not flying with this crowd in future."
Pros: "The take off was very smooth"
Cons: "It was a bit too warm"
Cons: "They don’t accept credit cards from USA."
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."

Cons: "To prepare on time!! Plz Eeven though I’ve booked more planty of time for next plan, it was late because of too much delayed"
Cons: "RYanair always delayed (1h30 delay inbound, 2h delay outbound), that company is a disgrace"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Confusing baggage policy. You are told to take your bag to the gate where it will be taken and put in the hold. It is not made clear that this bag must go through security with you and therefore cannot contain liquids. We had to jettison a lot of toiletries. When we got to the gate we were allowed to take the bags on anyway. What is the point of this?"
Cons: "Was told at boarding gate for a visa check stamp requirement. Admittedly it was mentioned in a casual way in the boarding pass,but wasn't a border control requirement. The airline could have done it there. But was denied boarding, waited for 6 hours to catch next flight and further connections."
Cons: "I paid for my seats and the ask me to change next to the emergency door, something that i would never choose."
Pros: "My own boarding was went ok"
Cons: "What was the most annoying part of the whole experience was the fact that they were other passangers on there school trip. Yes they are just still kids, but from the very start of them boarding, thats when everything just went downhill. The kids was just screaming, shouting, and sprinting into there sits. Even after being told to quite and calm down, all them were still screaming and shouting at the top of there vioces throughtout and non-stop for the whole flight (even after landing and getting into the bus). The worst fact of all is that, there was just far too many of them for everyone to handle (by the flight crew, and the trachers). It was also the first thing in the morning so it’s not like everyone would most likely be well rested already."
Cons: "1 hour flight delay 1 hour delay disembarking due to non-availability of ground staff Another appalling travel experience with Ryanair - they should not be allowed to operate an airline"
Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"
Pros: "Not much"
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: "Flight was delay, and I don't see crew doing the best to make the people confortable. Or happy to flight"
Cons: "Having to pay to use the toilet on board"
Cons: "Tiny seats, baggage policy is garbage"
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"
Pros: "Standard Ryanair flight. Usual boarding etc. No problems."
Cons: "Being split all over the aircraft because we refuse to give in to Ryanair extortion to squeeze more money out of us. Clearly would have been able to seat us all together. Won't buy another coffee or food until this policy changes."
Pros: "Fast boarding. I exchanged place with a stranger with no problem ."
Cons: "There's not a lot of space for your legs but that's an airplane problem and not really ryanair only. They took off the little basket space from the seat in front of you so you have nowhere to put away your stuff which is very annoying. You have ton pay for everything on board, absolutely nothing is free and it's ridiculously expensive."
Cons: "They took my carry on away and then we had to wait for all of the bags to come through. Not fair"
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: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Boarding area was completely full with no where to sit because there wasn't enough seats for the amount of people."
Pros: "How helpful they were"
Cons: "Baaaaa they treat you like sheeple. And they try to sell you perfume and cosmetics like it's an Armenian used electronics store. Yuck."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Just about everything."
Cons: "Rude representatives and terrible organization."
Pros: "Arrived on time after leaving late"
Cons: "I was too tall to be sitting beside two very big people"
Cons: "Plain had technical issues so we waited for 45' standing up outside in the cold until they got us back inside and wait another hour for a new plain to come,"
Pros: "The plane landed safely, but a bit rough."
Cons: "Paid €80 for 2 bags, then the agent told me that I could have saved over 50% if I had prepaid. It would have been nice to know that. The seats were incredibly cramped, even though I am not tall. The plane sat on the runway for about 40 minutes."
Pros: "The plane made it to Las Palmas"
Cons: "8 drunk women shouted and disrupted other's quiet"
Cons: "7 hour delay"
Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"
