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."

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "From the moment we checked in at Barcelona airport the airport staff were brilliant, my partner and his daughter are on the autism spectrum and struggle with crowds and social behaviour, but the gentleman that escorted us and helped us board could not have been nicer thank you"
Cons: "The staff were great but there was a rather large rid group that could have triggered an episode, but after a quiet word with the crew we were again supported a quick exit"

Cons: "Delays meaning I missed my train in Gatwick and wont be home before 1am. Crew was not exactly nice either"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Unexpected baggage charges despite only taking carryons"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late. They did not provide information or a satisfactory explanation for the delays. On hour 6 of delay we were still unsure of whether the flight would be cancelled."

Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Terrible legroom."

Cons: "Efficient, friendly at every step and on time."

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

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: "I was very impressed first time user and will use again"

Pros: "Arrived on time."

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: "Fly leaves on time"
Cons: "Seat too small and did not move, no entertainment and no food"

Cons: "Boarding delayedchaotic"

Pros: "No food or entertainment."

Pros: "Easy boarding and quick to receive baggage in Gatwick"
Cons: "Late opening of check-in. 2 desks allocated so 2 long queues. 20 mins into check-in the queue I was in changed to priority boarding. This necessary information should have been indicated in advance as 90% of the passengers were in the wrong queue. As for aircrew 1 of the female crew was miserable as sin and unhelpful to most passengers"

Pros: "Excellent pilot communication an great flight attendants."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Why make you board the plane and then tell you there is a 45 minute delay"

Pros: "Staff were excellent. I felt valued as a passenger. EasyJet seem to try to improve their process continually."
Cons: "Nearly every EasyJet flight I take is delayed. I know this can be beyond their control but I think scheduling is a bit tight. That said they keep you updated often and delay times go down as well as up."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Dealing with being overweight Seating was a bit tight"

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late and the crew wasn't helpful"

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"

Cons: "Being late on both journeys! With no explanation"

Pros: "I have been a fan of Easyjet for years but my last four experiences with them have been poor to say the least. A return flight to Naples earlier in the year and now Palermo shows that their attitude to customer care is slipping badly. All four flights were delayed to a greater or lesser degree. That happens and is usually beyond the control of the airline. What is not beyond their control is the way that they communicate during the delay and the way they treat their passengers. We are people not self-loading freight. Easyjet is fast becoming as bad as British Airways and they are by far the worst. A very frustrating and sad thing to see. The beginning of the end for Easyjet?"
Cons: "Abysmal communications. A don't care attitude. Not my problem syndrome. Treating passengers like cattle."

Cons: "no WIFI"

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "It was delayed like the previous flight with easyJet to the holiday destination"

Cons: "Began 'boarding' the plane despite the fact people had not got of plane that had arrived from London. We waiting in corridor thing that leads to plane for over 20 minutes"

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "Was meant to be a 21.40 flight that was delayed until midnight"
Cons: "Arrived at gatwick after public transport closed with no assistance offered"

Pros: "Pilot's way of explaining delays & diverted route"
Cons: "FRANTIC at Marseille Airport Easyjet security check area Then after unexplained delays, at gate entrance my hand luggage was refused even though it was organised the same way as my outward journey and that was OK. Aggressive checker said it couldn't have been Easyjet - I don't lie, and my outward journey was Easyjet. Had to repack & so spoilt some contents. We were left standing in gate area for ages without explanation."

Pros: "The welcome, the staff, everything was FAR better than my last flights with easyJet."
Cons: "New lights, lady behinds light was directly on our sleeping baby's head and we had to hold our hand over his eyes!"

Cons: "Decompression before landing was awful."

Pros: "The price for the ticket"
Cons: "No free fondo"

Pros: "B"
Cons: "Just fckin everything"

Cons: "It was delayed 5 hours. Landed at 3am."

Pros: "Very efficient, on-time, security at Gatwick is MUCH faster and more efficient than Heathrow."

Pros: "Nothing.overcharged for luggage."
Cons: "Worst airline I ever used."

Pros: "They even sold tickets for the Gatwick express to London while we were waiting to board asst the hasta in Edinburgh Scotland.that saved us the line at Gatwick.much appreciated."
Cons: "Easy jet lands at north terminal.you must take a shuttle to the south terminal to get the Gatwick express train."

Cons: "Stupidly long wait"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Fairly cramped seats, constantly trying to sell me stuff at ridiculous prices"

Pros: "Slight delay in boarding which seemed due to ground staff shortage resulting in 30 minute delayed departure, but overall the flight was good - no complaints."

Cons: "Being delayed Not being told anything"

Pros: "Air being recycled"

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 went airport for boxing pass they changed 165 £ if some one dnt no"

Pros: "never ever use this Momondo again"
Cons: "no customer service"

Pros: "Politeness of the staff"

Pros: "Online booking was nice and easy."
Cons: "Plane was small ,seats were not comfortable and plane was not connected with eye so passengees were waiting outside of plane in cold weather."

Cons: "App was down couldn’t check in had to pay cash(euros for trip). 250 euros for 180 pound as Ryanair only accepted pound (had to change at airport hence the rates) absolutely disgusting"

Pros: "Cheap(ish)"
Cons: "Worst plane seat of all carriers. No leg room, to close to seat in front no where to put anything , no usb charger. My local bus is more comfortable & better equipped. Same as 90% of people only fly Ryanair as a last resorts. Friend tried to down load boarding pass in the morning of flight was not able as need to be done 24hrs before. 50 euro to get printed at airport outrageous. Perhaps you could Justify £10 but 50 euro!! Why do they try so hard to rip there customers off at every turn"

Pros: "The prices were ok. I’m short (5,4) so I can’t complain about the leg space. The cabin crew were pleasant, I can’t say the same about al the workers in the airport, ruining your mood before a holiday is slack - especially after"
Cons: "Not all of your staff are polite, I’m not sure if it is because we were in a country that does not accept or respect people of “colour” but I could see that there was definitely a heavy line of different treatment to other races - sadly from a very well known brand. I did feel the luggage prices were slightly tacky, and extra for on cabin prices. Also, cleanliness is clearly not a priority for all either."

Pros: "Very chip flight but expensive tricks about luggage paid my cabin bag but not allowed to check them I will never flight with Ryanair air."

Cons: "Very bad service. Everything is bad"

Pros: "Trip went well easy check in Know problems"

Pros: "boarded the plane to find it looking like there had been a kids party. food all over the seats and floors, rubbish under the seats. pilot was barely competent making a harsh fumbling landing"
Cons: "disgusting plane"

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!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed for three hours then they gave us a 5eur/£3.50 voucher which we were only allowed to use for pizza and WATER. No other soft drink. The delay was ridiculous. The allowed us to board and be seated for about 15 mins before telling us that there was a problem with the aircraft. DONT YOU CHECK THIS BEFORE PASSENGERS BOARD?! Priority was a waste of money we all got on at the same time anyway. Rubbish service, rubbish airline and my £26 flight turned in £60 easily with all the extras which were a waste of my money."

Pros: "We made the flight!!"
Cons: "Notification of which Gate!! All the steps Down to the tarmac then up the plane steps!!! Priority- didn't seem to mean anything- everybody boarded the same!! The Cabin crew- Rushed announcements!! And worked as I feel robots!! But definitely got Value for Money!!!"

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"

Pros: "Inconvenient all, no aplogise of delayed Flight as like the turtle!"
Cons: "To prepare on time!! Plz Eeven though I’ve booked more planty of time for next plan, it was late because of too much delayed"

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

Pros: "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"

Cons: "Two hours delayed"

Pros: "Spacious seats with leg room"
Cons: "Too much talking over intercom"

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"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "We had to go to three different desks to get our bags checked in: one for payment, another for printing the bag label and another for dropping off our bag. Also they wanted to charge us 15 quid each to print our boarding pass because the airports wifi wasn't working. This will be both my first and last experience with this company."

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?"

Cons: "The departure lounge was horrible"

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: "Nothing."
Cons: "In the past, you could accept to be hauled like cattle through the gate, walk to the plane under the rain, sit on a bench, be bother with scratchers, etc. because the cost was really low. Not anymore. Nowadays the generic name should be very-high-cost/service-ratio airlines. They charge you way too much for the same crappy service as always. Bye, bye!"

Cons: "The plane was dirty"

Cons: "The process is set up to extract exorbitant fees."

Pros: "The crew were friendly, plane was clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as the flight before hadn't landed, which happens. But when we arrived at Stanstead we waited a long time to get off of the plane, and the bags from the hold were not released for another hour and a half after landing, with no recogition of this or apology for the wait."

Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "Nothing! Crew was decent, but not great."
Cons: "Basically everything. Long wait in unannounced. unstructured line (s). Miserable seat."

Pros: "The plane made it to Las Palmas"
Cons: "8 drunk women shouted and disrupted other's quiet"

Pros: "Availability to change seat if one is open"
Cons: "No leg room"

Cons: "7 hour delay"

Pros: "not crashing"
Cons: "being treated like a dispensable inconvenience at every turn"

Pros: "Nothing. It was all mediocre."
Cons: "You need to serve food or at least water. Airplanes are very dry. It makes you seem like a rip off."

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call--corralled into a small hot space, standing because there was no seating and waiting for over 1/2 hour to board. Seats were cramped. There was no food--unless you are accustomed to paying over $10 for an unhealthy snack. To call the safety card affixed to the back of the seat in front of me "entertainment" is a joke. You will not need to worry about my ever flying your airline again."

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

Cons: "For the price was fair"

Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"

Pros: "Price was cheap, that's it!"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, without any explanation. We had to pay for water!"

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."

Pros: "This flight offered excellent value and a neat atmosphere"

Pros: "The plane cabin is designed clean and modern. Found having no seat bag a little bit surprised first, but eventually the change (as to other airlines) leaves more space in the foot area. By the way, even though London Stansted is somewhat farther away, it is new, versatile."
Cons: "Too small of Stockholm Skavsta is too small with not even enough seats, which makes travellers really miserable."

Pros: "The whole process went smoothly"
Cons: "Temperature changes very contrasting. Ok in terminal, boiling hot waiting on staiwell, cool walk to plane."

Pros: "It was short so there wasn't much to do, no screens or anything but that was fine. I thought it was great."
Cons: "I think it was a bit overcrowded. There wasn't a lot of space for people and some had to put their bags at the back of the plane."
