Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "long delays"
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."
Pros: "Easy flight time and Luton airport is small and manageable"
Cons: "Cleaner plane"
Pros: "The calzone (food)."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. No direct access to the plane. They make these things called jet ways... start using them! Also the crew said the front bathroom was not in service then proceeded to allow the captain and crew plus a few passengers to use it."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice There are always delays"
Pros: "Crew were excellent and the flight was without faults"
Pros: "Punctuallity & cabin crews"
Pros: "The flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The gate crew seemed frazzled and at times rude"
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: "The flight was absolutely fine, although late. There was no entertainment on board. All food and drinks were for a fee. Crew was great."
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: "I liked the price of my flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no update on the app to indicate it. A lot of time wasted waiting in the airport and a very late arrival in Manchester."
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: "New plane"
Cons: "Almost 2hour delay"
Pros: "Adequate for short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating Long wait on jet ramp"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant and the pilot did an excellent job in difficult weather conditions"
Cons: "The flight was not stocked with sufficient food and had run out of sandwiches by row 3. Considering food is purchased for an additional fee this is surely makes poor business sense aside from being frustrating for passengers on a 3 hour flight plus a delay. Flights were very expensive especially when factoring in that we had to pay to check a bag, to select seats and to purchase food and drink. Worked out as terrible value for money when compared with an Emirates flight to New Zealand."
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: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow Seat was very uncomfortable, it is like they discriminate against tall people, leg space gets less and less by the year"
Pros: "No delays"
Pros: "The landing was hairy and I have never experienced a fish tail landing quite like it before."
Cons: "The landing was horrid and Im sure I lost £15 off the cashier for wine and cheddar crackers was like a magic trick gone wrong. Sort your float for each flight and stop making assumptions with short change and playing games."
Pros: "Friendly staff, food ok"
Cons: "Shepherded into a small area with very few seats, and anyway, we were held in lanes like sheep! Seating on the plane - narrow and little space between rows. Had to wait quite a while for baggage to arrive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Booked wrong date before confirmation came phoned to cancel was told I couldn't have a refund would never use easy jet again"
Pros: "Efficient check in and bag drop. Flight attendants were professional and accommodating."
Cons: "I sat in seat 1A, near the door, and froze. Changed seats with a lady so she could be with her children. I originally had seat 1D. I am surprised you charge extra for that seat. If one of the children would have sat in seat 1A I am sure they would be sick with a cold in a few days."
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."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Late for return and arrival flight"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. I was directed towards the rear if the plane so I didn't have to walk town the entire plane. I was offered to check my hand luggage in the hold for free"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight late again, plane filthy. Not good enough."
Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"
Cons: "Delays"
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."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "nothing. being late is a nightmare"
Cons: "I was late to connect with another flight and I spent a night in the airport."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude staff, crowded planes, stand by on a booked ticket , 3 hours late"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."
Pros: "On time, welcoming crew on board"
Cons: "Request to put small handbag into half empty flight bag is just petty. If easyJet insist on checking customers through and then holding them in a pen, they should provide facilities/seating - we are not cattle but that is the impression given."
Pros: "On time fantastic !"
Pros: "Very comfortable experience. Boarding was easy. Check in was convenient. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike."
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: "The crew were very friendly, attentive and helpful where possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes but there was almost no information about this other than the EasyJet app, even the airport boards provided misinformation. A last minute gate change brought upon a stampede, the flight was overbooked, and whilst not EasyJet's fault, 20 children on a midnight flight did not make for an enjoyable experience."
Pros: "friendly service at counter"
Cons: "the way attendants treated us when boarding deep contrast with peaple in the counter"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good quality low cost airline for a short 3 hr flight. Easy boarding. food ok."
Cons: "too crowded and many drunk people flying. seats are made for midget size people. prize of food a bit expensive."
Pros: "From pillar to post not one delay."
Cons: "No"
Cons: "The"
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: "The time of the layover between a Ryanair flight that requires you to check baggage and then pick up from the carousel, go through customs, and an Aer Lingus flight that you then had to check into at the Aer Lingus desk (online check in was not an option) and go BACK through security IS NOT HUMANLY POSSIBLE. This was a huge waste of time and money and I do not recommend using two airlines, especially not if it involves RyanAir and the Manchester airport. I have to cancel reservations that I will not be able to make the rest of the time I’m at this destination. Moving flights cost me €60 and missing my reservation at an escape room is an emotional cost that cannot be compensated. Very unsatisfied."
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: "The crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The flight itself was great.... just the 90 min delay that put a downer on things."
Cons: "The 90 minute delay was a bit of a killer... also we where not told about the delay when checking in our hold luggage.... one of my party smoke and where a bit put out to find out about the delay once they had gone through customs etc and then couldn’t smoke."
Cons: "Flight didn’t leave until about 11 as boardinf didn’t start until after 10 so we arrived in Manchester at midnight."
Pros: "Crew were fabulous, boarding on time and was quick and easy."
Cons: "Plane was filthy, covered in rubbish, crisps, dirty seats. There were no drinks left to buy as it was the last flight of the day, no milk for tea which wasn't good."
Pros: "Cabin crew - efficient, friendly and with a sense of humour."
Cons: "Having to buy Prority boarding to guarantee access to the overhead bins. Seats not that comfortable. Little legroom (i’m average height at best)."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable and more leg room than some other airlines random seat allocated no charge no complaint. Only bought cup of tea so can’t comment on food. Tea was fine."
Cons: "The seemingly squashy way of making sure hand luggage is tagged. Why not use a system of gradual approach. Don’t like euro charging if card used. Seems strange. Cash sterling ok."
Pros: "crew very good"
Cons: "2 hour delay and no information, even changed boarding gate and did not inform passengers who was already waiting."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the Chicken tikka masala was too, it could have done with a little more chicken in it though."
Cons: "The hour delay in Rome and the heavy landing in Manchester really scared the hell out of me."
Pros: "On time fly gut and prompt baggage handling"
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."
Cons: "Waiting time, unfriendly crew, pilot out of the cabin chatting with the door wide open."
Cons: "Getting charged 220EUR to check in at the airport."
Pros: "Easy and quick and cheap"
Cons: "The seats are too steep inclined"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, not even a space/pocket slot on the rear of the seat in front to place a book, phone, bottle of water etc Boarding was delayed and this appeared to be due to cabin bags being moved to hold luggage but had not been tagged in advance. Seemed a bit disorganised. Fair enough have the rule about potentially putting them in the hold but make sure they are pre tagged. Flight delayed as a result."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were forced to get on the aircraft when it arrived late, with another 737 taxiing next to it( I know illegal). Then forced to sit on the plane for nearly 3 hours on the ground in heat. Staff were rude and awful. Everything was stupidly expensive, even water!!! When we eventually got to Manchester we had to wait in the plane again for 45minutes for the bus to arrive to take us to the airport. Only one person on passport control. Where our bags were all in a pile on the floor because of some malfunction. Ryanair flights are hell!!"
Pros: "3 hour delay due to an Italian air traffic control strike. Not the crews fault but they handled it well, especially the captain who spoke to everyone face to face"
Cons: "The selection of food was dismal and expensive, glad ok didn't buy as the quality looked poor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "40 minutes baking on the bus to take us to the aircraft, Lack of communication Disrespectful and bad attitude of the crew Paying £80 to put luggage in hold to be told as I didn’t report that my case was damaged when I arrived at 01:00 am (in the morning) with an onward journey of 2 hrs I could not now place a complaint! Despite having photographic evidence!! No tap water available - given ice and boiling water I am done flying with Ryanair"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The crew didn’t allow a very visibly drunk passenger on board which was good. We were concerned about him coming on the plane so were very pleased they didn’t allow him to board."
Cons: "The plane was delayed and when we did board it was very clear that absolutely no cleaning had taken place. Appreciate the effort not to be any later than we were but not nice to get to a seat with crisps and malteasers everywhere."
Pros: "On time and coat effective"
Cons: "At FRA Airport ryanair sits about a 20min drive from the terminal. Adds 20min to boarding and landing procedures. But this is compensated with FRA being a super efficient airport at the baggage carousel and border control"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dirty seats, tables and floor. Both times we checked in and because we didn't pay for early check in we all got separated despite there being room to all sit together or at least in pairs. Had to pay to move to sit together. It costs £80 to bring a suitcase for the hold, however if you don't pay for priority boarding your handluggage gets placed in the hold anyway despite there being more than enough space in overhead lockers. If I had known how much it would be to pay for the 'extras' which area really basic requirements, I would not have booked with Ryanair. Next time I'll be going with another company who actually provide a basic service"
Pros: "Accessibility guys in both Bergamo and Manchester were brilliant."
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours the first hour was on the departure boards - fair enough but almost all of the second hour was on the plane with hardly any information at all."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight then held in pens for ages then held on the plane too."
Pros: "Ryanair still not putting their customers first. Poor experience checking in online. Had to use online chat which needed several attempts to get an answer, be careful calling Ryanair as they charge 13p per minute"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Couldn't take on bag as not priority. Booked extra leg room seats expecting priority but no longer Won't travel with Ryan air again"
Cons: "30 minutes waiting, New lugguage policy!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"
Pros: "Early take off and excellent all round"
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seats"
Cons: "The delay."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. Flight to of only a few minutes late, considering the appalling weather back in the UK, I expected more of a delay."
Cons: "Rear door wasn't accessible, so all passengers were loaded through the front. A bit more organisation of getting rear seated passengers on first would have facilitated a faster/safer boarding for all."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively quick"
Cons: "Left late and the staff were a little rude"
Pros: "Arrived early, a bit confused as to why our bags had to go in the hold but they arrived in a very timely fashion and although the 3 of us were separated, I was in a fire exit seat and my long legged son also had extra leg room at the front. Bonus!"
Cons: "I wish the seats could recline just a little. I can't read without feeling sick so a 3 hour flight can be pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Easy online check in with no need to visit a desk anyway, unlike Jet2 who enforce an online check in only for you to have to do it all again in person."
Cons: "Unnecessarily held at the gate for 45 minutes as the departures boards showed the flight as boarding - no way to get out of this area so stuck. Flight left late and then had to queue up to get access to a drop off area so missed my onward train connection. Paid for food in pounds but given change in Euros - disgraceful - don't offer to take payment in a currency you can't provide change for. Overall a poor experience, will not be flying with RyanAir again."
Pros: "That it took off and landed. That's all."
Cons: "Being made to queue for almost an hour, with staff seeing and allowing people to push in front because they had a child (over 5y.o) with no regard for people who queued. Staff then came from the back to the front of the queue telling people they had to put their carry-on luggage in the hold. When questioned why, the response was "you either do it or we won't let you fly. You don't like it? What do you want? It's Ryanair, deal with it." Very disappointing, flown many times with Ryanair but never been treated like that. Also disgusted with the new policy of having to pay to sit next to your partner of the same booking. Disgusting."
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Extra leg room seats at the front of the plane don't actually have more legroom, and priority boarding is a farce if those without it can board the plane before you"
Pros: "Seat ok"
Cons: "Delay with no information.this is an airline that although cheap has no interest in customers"
Pros: "Left 15 mins late due to idiots not making the gate on time and luggage having to be found for them and arrived on time in Manchester so well done Ryanair!!"
Cons: "Kept staying for 1 hour unnecessarily. Plane late. Flight late, arriving 1 hour late. run out of many refreshment options, plane dirty."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable hard plastic"
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."
Cons: "As we landed at las palmas the passengers were screaming as we had turbulence, no one from the crew tried to ease their fear."
Pros: "Crew jokes eased the tension after the flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayes"
