Pros: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
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."
Pros: "There wasn’t anything to highlight as good. On this trip except LHR was organized and clean. The boarding was a free for all after the elderly and young had been boarded footstep as they should."
Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"
Pros: "Crew friendly, attentive. Great plane, comfort, etc. Boarding & disembark easy. Given a little snack as we entered plane was a great touch!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and efficient, even though there seem to be only two of them."
Cons: "Seats did not recline, and it is hard for those of us trying to sleep after connecting from a trans-Atlantic flight."
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"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "It was a horrible experience. I was trying to check in a few hours before my flight, and my reservation just vanished. I was on the phone with VAYAMA twice, and both times they were extremely unhelpful and one of the times just very very rude! I will not be booking with Kayak again."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and accomodating from check in to debording."
Cons: "Plain was very warm. Boarding in Frankfurt was on the tarmac and because I was traveling with someone who required wheelchairs it made boarding a huge pain."
Pros: "the fact that the departure was delayed due to a late connection flight from Pisa."
Cons: "the extra fees for the tickets of our pets because the reservation was not made on line when that was impossible for us to do when we purchased our tickets, nor when we received the notice on the 31st of August because our computer was already packed in the suit case and didn't see it until September 2nd."
Cons: "Seats in front recline so that seat back is in your face."
Cons: "Flight late"
Cons: "Seems like they want to nickel and dime you for everything now..."
Cons: "Lufthansa lost our bags at Heathrow for over 2 hours. I waited with my toddler for two hours in a terminal with no food options and our transport waiting. While on the flight, there were no food options appropriate for a toddler and no gluten free options for myself."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Pros: "We liked it all. Great flight!"
Cons: "The big layover but even that worked out well"
Cons: "That you get out the plane using the steps and take a bus to the main airport.. and waiting for the wheelchair for half an hour"
Cons: "No room for my knees."
Pros: "I liked how smooth the boarding was handled. The flight attendants where polite and helpful. A very comfortable flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Guy next to me died. Emergency landing. They refused to hold the gate for my connection in Frankfurt for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Helpful crew, comfortable seats"
Pros: "At least should have good brands of alcoholic drinks. Ugly mag limit the no of drinks consumed but keep better standard drinks"
Pros: "wasn't Lufthansa it was actually Singapore airlines they changed my flight and it was very good"
Cons: "It was very good"
Pros: "I just love flaying with Lufthansa Airline, absolutely love it! Everything starting from customer service to blankets is great quality."
Cons: "The food could be better tobut I was pleased with the service"
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "The sandwich was ok. Flight attendant was just fine as well."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for no apparent or known reason. Took forever to board and then we missed our connecting flight. I have no need to fly Luthansa again. Get what you pay for with bottom of the barrel airlines I guess."
Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"
Pros: "The perfekt assistance we needed in Munich. We were asisted by an exellent young man."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The hot towelettes before eating was very nice."
Cons: "Squished in the middle of a row. Unable to get up and get things out of my bag. Video screen not working. I had been looking forward to catching up on some movies ( rarely have time for to or movies usually) was disappointed to have no working screen on such a long flight. Did appreciate the effort to supply a gluten free meal, unfortunately someone added whole wheat crackers ( luckily still in wrapper ). The boarding area was mixed with people trying to get to New Jersey at the next gate making it very crowded and confusing, people found themselves in the wrong line."
Pros: "Food and overall service"
Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."
Pros: "The stewards did their jobs well."
Cons: "Our departure was severely delayed due to airport and aircraft crew errors. This meant that I missed my connecting flight in Munich, had to endure an extended lay over, board an extra flight to Budapest and endure an even more unbearable lay over there before being able to reach my final destination in Athens. I paid for a one-stop flight and have ended up having to endure a two-stop flight with extended lay overs. I feel completely cheated out of my money and overall have had a terrible experience."
Pros: "excellent flight crew, and entertainment options. My husband lost his boarding pass in between connections and staff was able to help him out and even was able to arrange that we sat next to each other."
Cons: "Transferring flights it was difficult to make it to our flight on time. More snack options would be nice."
Pros: "Flight was short. Only 3.x hours."

Pros: "I loved everything."
Pros: "I loved everything."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"
Pros: "We made our transfer"
Cons: "Our airplane was assigned a remote parking space instead of main terminal but our bus came quickly to main terminal and we made our transfer and through customs in an hour"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "I am disabled and we called the 24 hours in advance as requested to book seats with more leg room, accommodation for my autistic son's service dog, and special meals for my two children. None of these things were done as were booked even when presented with confirmation number provided by the central booking office. To top it off my daughter is allergic to peppers and her allergen free meal contained peppers."
Pros: "Friendly service, clean plane, good food for economy class, and entertainment was good. Seats were not bad for economy."
Cons: "For some reason this A340 does not have air vents in the passenger service unit. This is a first for me, as every other plane I've ever been on has air vents that the passenger can position to direct cool air. This airplane lacks these! For some reason our area of the plane in row 35 was so hot. It must have been 80F and air was not moving. It seems like other areas of the plane may have been cooler."
Cons: "Boarding three planes to three different destinations from the same gate is very confusing."
Pros: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Cons: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"
Pros: "Please do it more easy for the costumers"
Cons: "The people who have baggage for check in can do it since the beginin the travel gol and back"
Cons: "Second baggage charges"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Food was ok."
Cons: "Delay, twice - before we boarded and then again after we taxied."
Pros: "To reach the goal."
Cons: "Food. Time."
Cons: "Its simple. Turns out i had to pay 360 dollars for my baggages which was hever specified in the time i was purchasing tickets cause they said im flying without and i can come back with. Who is flying without baggage intercontinental for 1 month? And 3 baggages didnt arrived. Thanks"
Pros: "SAS does it right with entertainment and food."
Cons: "Seats are too small in economy to be comfortable. Boarding was unclear and confusing, mainly because I didn't have a boarding group on my boarding pass."
Pros: "The total experience from check-in to disembark was extraordinary. The crew were beyond eager to please and extremely responsive. The food was hot and very tasted. The beverage selection was finominal. The cleanliness of the plane and restrooms, although the handle for one of the restrooms fell off the door."
Pros: "Guess what, we took off and arrived on time!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, cleanliness of cabin, actual cod fish (not tilapia/suay) etc. For dinner. Good Swedish scotch too"
Pros: "Efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Seats super uncomfortable, no food for a 3.5 hr flight, just tea or coffee as free drink options."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Cons: "SAS is a train wreck. everything they told us was misinformation from the first delay (there were 5 delays, one each hour, before they cancelled) The whole time they would not allow ticket changes while we watched available flights take off for 5 hours. We had no say in the rebooking - they just said wait you will get an email. The SAS workers need to be trained - how about putting up a sign that says "this line for parking vouchers ony'ly" when 300 people are lined up for assistance."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, it did not say that I was not allowed to check any bags. My wife and I had one each, and it costed us €140 total to bring the luggage. If I had known there was a slightly more expensive ticket that would have allowed us to check a luggage each, I would of course have chosen that. Very poor information provided."
Pros: "Everyone I interacted with from SAS was very nice and very polite. Smooth, short flight. Bags came down pretty quickly. The coffee on the plane was better than in my hotel in Edinborough!"
Cons: "I didn't realize that even though I am an international traveler, I had to pay for baggage for this short flight. And since I didn't realize it, I didn't purchase it online, which doubled the price at the airport :-( also, and this is not the fault of the airline, the security line is ridiculously slow because at least 50% of the passengers get shunted to a single line because the screener saw something odd."
Pros: "Made an effort to avoid the turbulence."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Cons: "Rude crew, and apparently now you only get one free nonalcoholic drink in Economy for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Pleasant and safe flught"
Pros: "The water bottles, pillow, and earbuds were on the seats."
Cons: "The returning flight to the US they did not dim the lights so that it was comfortable to sleep. A red light was shining down on my head most of the trip because I had a window seat. It was very annoying."
Cons: "Our ticket said economy, but it was a specific set of economy that did not include any baggage. If we were warned prior we could have purchased it for significantly cheaper. Our ticket was not clear and it cost us 175usd for two bags at the airport. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Really appreciated how helpful everyone was, from check-in at Newark to arrival. The entertainment system worked well, too. Aside from the two issues I describe below, SAS seems to be extremely efficient and well-run."
Cons: "There was some mix-up - not sure where - but I did requested a vegetarian meal and it wasn't in the system. I'd also requested an aisle seat due to a hip issue and was told I'd have one - but when I went to check in, I'd been put in a center seat in a bulkhead. I was able to change but it was the last row of the plane. We the gate they were able to move me up at the last minute - but this all could've been much easier."
Pros: "Quick flight and pleasant service. Seats were also comfortable"
Cons: "Walking out to the plane the markings weren’t great."
Pros: "Food, crew, overall comfort, movies"
Cons: "The plane was quite warm. We definitely could have used more water as well."
Pros: "Top notch service , catered very much to Americans . Would definitely fly again"
Pros: "I liked the movie selection! I also like the spacious size of our seats! There was just the right amount of leg room for the time of the flight. Also, the meals were served in a timely manner!"
Cons: "The breakfast entree was salty and a beverage was not served with our meal. The gap between the entree was too long for enjoymenty. My friends and I were thirsty when we were eatinmg. Also, the wine selections were not the standard fan favorite. Not many enjoy Zinfandel or the white wine they were serving."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "'Fluctuating' baggage fees, no free snacks on a four hour flight, no in-flight entertainment, no wifi, 30 minutes late without updates on monitor due to previous delay."
Cons: "SAS charged me 70 Euros for a small 14 KG carryon luggage. It should have been free. Even Ryan air only charged 35$ for a checked bag. This was ridiculous and service was poor."
Pros: "Highly efficient, no problems at all."
Cons: "I wouldn't mind a complimentary wine with dinner - other good airlines like to offer me a white wine with my chicken but here you have to pay for it.... Other than that I was happy with my travel!"
Pros: "Free water bottles, headphones, blankets and pillows for all passengers. Two meals (one full, one small). TVs in chairs. Flight felt roomy. A relatively pleasant experience."
Cons: "No free booze!"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were good. Plane new and clean."
Cons: "I think the only free drinks are tea and coffee."
Pros: "Went to help desk in Stockholm on arrival to change seats. Earlier flight with better seats at no additional charge was offered and taken. Easy boarding and nice short hop to Oslo."
Pros: "Made it safely to destination"
Cons: "Series of unfortunate events: 1. No air vents in seats. Plane was very warm the entire flight. My husband and I spent 6+ hours sweating in our seats. 2. Dinner was not served until 9:30/10PM. By the time we received our food in the back, it was cold. 3. For guests who wanted to sleep during the red eye, the lights were not turned off until after dinner and cleanup, which meant only 2 or so hours of sleep in dark."
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "My selected seat was broken and I was moved to a seat directly on the side of the toilet. Not nice!"
Cons: "Lost my luggage when the other 3 people who I am traveling with got theirs. Not sure what went wrong there. No SAS personnel was available, actually there was no airline counter even. I filed a lost and found report at the airport. I will contact the airline , hope they will find my bags or at least provide vouchers for my one week vacation."
Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Cons: "A landing card us required from each non EU passport holder. No mention of this was ever made, and we stood in front of an open customs desk filling out the forms we could have done at leisure during the flight. A lot of other stuff was poor -- seat pitch, no free food, etc. but this was one simple thing other airlines usually do."
Pros: "Clean plane, decent food"
Pros: "Quick, painless boarding process with friendly cabin staff and above average food. Flight was delayed about 15 minutes by a maintenance paperwork (according to the announcement) issue. Not fully booked, so very relaxing atmosphere onboard."
Pros: "The standout moment for me was how the crew treated my son who realized, as the door was closing, that he had forgotten his bag with all his schoolbooks. They were very kind and responsive and helped him find the bag with no fuss and without making him feel bad."

Cons: "Wasn't allowed to board connecting flight"
Pros: "I upgraded for reasonable $$ and it was great - will do it again! Flight was in time, easy, friendly service and good flight"
Cons: "Could not even PAY for an upgrade due to a meal request, even though I brought my own food - and would waive the meal request. Inedible vegetarian meals in flight. Earbuds didn't work. At least I had my own to use. Plane became stifling warm mid-way. Friendly flight crew does not make up for the terrible gate experience and inflight discomfort. SAS cares about profits not passengers. Plan to take another airline on future flights to Europe."
Pros: "One of the best we've experienced--very comfortable very spacious seats , The crew is very attentive and accommodating. We were fed three times and was offered beverages frequently."
Cons: "Not enough room to work on laptop."
Pros: "12 people got bumped!"
Cons: "The food options need improvements. The portion and items are not tasty or plentiful."
Pros: "One magazine was not enough"
Cons: "You expect me to vacation time trying to contact you about the items missing from my suitcase. I have read where I have seven days to report this. This happened on June 20 almost a month ago I am at home trying to straighten out this I had yet to even speak to anyone about The luggage items missing. Why would I miss out on my vacation trying to write you???"
Pros: "Leaving on schedule and arriving 20 minutes early. The crew was very helpful to families with children."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Not much leg room"
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"
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: "No delays"
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."

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: "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!!!"

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.

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: "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: "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: "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!!"
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: "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: "The extra cost for baggage. The flight was late but there was no announcement or explanation. The flight attendants talked over the loud intercom the entire time trying to sell products like perfume. One flight attendant kept bumping into me each time she walked by. The flight felt crowded. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. I fly a lot and this was my first and probably last time flying ryan air."
Cons: "Late no communication stuck in a queue at airport and no one said a word for over an hour! Will never use again"
Pros: "Arrived on time after leaving late"
Cons: "I was too tall to be sitting beside two very big people"
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."
Cons: "Printing my boarding pass at home to make sure I didn't have to pay a 50 euro fee. It's hard enough to do it right before you leave, but we couldn't print anything for the flight back to Brussels."
Pros: "The staff on board is very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "Too many handlagguages of the people, so I needed to check in my bag..... and got it back broken! :-( the service for handling the replacement of broken bags is a kathastrophy!!!!"
Cons: "They send email about check in but if you did not get it for various reasons while traveling (lack of wi-fi access) the day of the flight even though I was there 21/2 hours before I could not get my boarding pass from the agent I was told that I had 15 minutes to check in thru the Internet because I could check in only thru the airport automatic check in system as a result I missed the deadline ( only one station was functioning) and I had to pay 55 additional euros to board the flight another ways "legal highway robbery". Traveler be aware of this airline cheap tickets but they get you in other ways...."
Cons: "Horrible airline!!! You could not pay me to fly with them again!!! Short, rude staff, every little thing was an additional charge, super uncomfortable seats. Flying with them was a nightmare, never again!"
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: "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."
Cons: "I checked in online to avoid the fee yet when I arrived they claimed I didn't fully finish the check in process so they charged me 135 pounds for 3 of us. The website was horrible and kept dropping me so after I chose the extras, paid with my credit card, and received the billing confirmation I thought I was done. I even showed them the email but they played hardball and made me pay the fee. Funny thing was they had all the passport information they needed because I really did check in online so all they had to do was push a button to print out my boarding pass. Biggest ripoff ever!"
Cons: "I arrived at the Athens Airport 3.5h in advance. I tried to check in online. The ultimately unworkable airport wifi meant that I spent about an hour trying to get to the Ryanair website. I found an internet kiosk, only to find out that the fact that I am Canadian prevented me from checking in online. I got in the very long line to get to the Ryanair service desk and print my boarding pass, but by the time I got to the desk, I was 2 (two) minutes after the 2h boarding period limit. As a result, I was charged over twice the cost of my ticket, simply to print a piece of paper confirming the reservation I had already paid for, and had proof of in my email inbox. I am understandably outraged. I am telling everyone I know to avoid Ryanair in favor of other low-cost carriers."
