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: "Ridiculous charging 25euro for a small backpack, by threatening to let you on is truly extortion"

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: "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: "We did not crash"
Cons: "*the plane was late showing up. *staff in France locked the doors while we were waiting for the late plane, cutting off the only source of fresh air in the terminal *the slam down landing was unpleasant *the crew did not distribute immigration cards causing delay at the terminal as I had to fill it in there while the line grew longer *once we landed, there was no place for the plane to park so we waited *once we docked, there were no stairs available for the plane, so we waited *once in the terminal, they announced delays for the baggage, so we waited."

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: "It was normal"
Cons: "Spent an hour from landing to taxi, park and gwt out of the plane and airport. Car hire representatives left before we arrived"

Cons: "We waited on the plane for at least 45 minutes because a different passenger could not figure out their ticket."

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?"

Pros: "That it was cheap, and short. Would've paid slightly higher ticket prices for less sales pitches and maybe tv shows on seats."
Cons: "That every two minutes, we had a session pitch for everything from food to scratch off tickets. Give it a rest!"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Super delayed, made me Miss my train connection"

Pros: "Flights were ok. No real complaint."
Cons: "Stanstead is awful. Not enough Ryanair staff on bag drop. Rude staff at disorganized we bring check. Biggest shopping mall compulsory march i have seen anywhere. Terrible. Walkways to gates are too narrow. Felt like a cattle market."

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: "Notihng"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Poor customer service specially in Berlin"

Cons: "Make sure to all you need to do is the bag drop at checkin. The lines to see an agent are horrendous."

Pros: "Getting off the plane after we landed."
Cons: "Everything."

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

Pros: "Nothing! 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: "We got comfortable seats. The crew was lovely Overall it's nice."
Cons: "All the handling with the luggage was complicated"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay No communication from staff No announcement Staff risky rude and didn't care Staff extremely unhelpful"

Pros: "Cheap, efficient, works!"
Cons: "Customer service is just bad. We had to self check in and self drop bag. We intentionally went to a lady to help us she said "this is self check in and you have to do it alone", in the process we had a mistake so she asked "why did you do that, the machine told you not to" - that's exactly how you should NOT treat your customers. We thought our luggage will not arrive - and she was rude and stressing us out. 0/10 for her"

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

Cons: "For the price was fair"

Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"

Pros: "Planes are new."
Cons: "Ryaniar uses questionable practices to charge for services that are free on almost all other airlines. What is most offensive is not the fact that they charge but they make it difficult for passengers to reduce or avoid such fees."

Cons: "The line for security was an hour (really), and the line to get your passport stamped was another hour. The passport line is for them to let you *leave* the country. Worst lines I've seen in years. There's no reason for it, apparently they are just horrendously understaffed and everyone knows about it."

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

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

Cons: "Service was terrible. Employees were rude. Charged for everything."

Pros: "Staff was friendly enough"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. That's why the ticket price is so cheap"

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."

Cons: "They set up the lines so that Priority goes first .. cool... then you wait as EVERYONE piles onto a bus to then shuffle onto a plane ... defeating the point of paying extra for priority..."

Pros: "The pilots had excellent take-offs and landings both ways."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, I discovered that they will not print your boarding passes -- unless you want to pay $66 per ticket (I printed at computer station for about $25). Baggage charges were also a surprise: you have to pay to check your bag separately for the out and return journeys -- to the the tune of $51-66 each way. $6 to pick a seat (a necessity since I had my children along). My $53 city hop wound up costing me about $183. Times that by 5, as I had my family along. That and the entire flight, the crew tried to sell me stuff. Never flying Ryanair again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Apparently you are supposed to "always" check in prior to to arriving to the airport! That's a first. Also they charge you 45 ponds to check in at the kiosk! What? That's unheard of around the globe. I missed a flight and I was charged 100 per ticket for a tickets that was worth only 100 in total."
