Long delays of two hours leaving Manchester
Aer lingus were great to fly with but I got some very confusing calls from chatdeal that I booked with at midnight, 5 hours before I had to be up for my flight telling me I had to “uncheck in” to fix an issue on their end. It wasn’t an option and after an hour of trying I gave up as I had my boarding card already. Boarded the plane just fine. So I don’t know why they gave me an hour of stress just before my flight… I’ll book directly through aer lingua next time
Cons: "Crew was a bit loud and kept me awake during flight in one of the tail seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "WiFi was not working. Flight was 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "It was a quick, short flight."
Cons: "My bags did not make the connection, which is crazy considering I was in Dublin for about 7 hours. It was not a quick layover, and my bags should have been on the plane with me."
Pros: "Super friendly, comfortable for the long flight, plenty to keep you occupied. Its my 3rd time flying with them and the flight is always smooth. And it doesn't hurt that there is a huge shamrock on the tail wing to make superstitious people like me, feel a little bit better! I will only use them!"
Pros: "Great equipment. Decent entertainment, sparsely filled cabin. Seat change to isle request before boarding readily made with no fuss. I noticed that passengers could actually make out pa announcements both at PDX and in flight. Doesn’t bother me anymore when I can’t but can be very concerning to anyone who rarely flies. Never understood going to the trouble of making announcements both pre-boarding & on-board pre-flight, that no one can even make out. That was not an issue here."
Cons: "Better lumbar support is always appreciated, adjustable lumbar would be very nice and could make or break an entire flight. No seat on any flight should ever be even the slightest ill repaired. Again, this equipmemt all seemed great. Lastly, since I prefer to always have a water, coke or coffe and or snack in front of me during entire flight, a bit of self serve (grab a water, coffee or snack yourself without having to make staff work a simple task would be nice on every flight. The flight from SEA-DUB was basically great and equipment is always of the utmost importantance."
Pros: "Crew, plane was very comfortable, meals good and generous, luggage easy, on time. Overall, outstanding"
Pros: "This was my first flight on Aer Lingus and it was excellent. Prompt take off and Dublin Airport is modern and extremely comfortable. I plan on using this airline again. Flight attendants were polite and helpful, as well as check-in personel."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Rude flight personnel. We werent assigned seats by each other when we have a four year old. Personnel was rude when addressing the issue. Very rude flight attendent as well. Flights were not child friendly in regards to beverages. No apple juice or milk. We will never fly Air Lingus again."
Cons: "Have to pay for a coffe"
Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Food was excellent and drinks came along frequently"
Cons: "Staff wasn't rude but not friendly."
Pros: "Good seats Good entertainment Good plane Nice staff and flight crew"
Cons: "Could not select a special meal online (I am vegetarian), which left me with poor food selection on the plane. Dublin airport was chaotic, difficult to find bathrooms, long lines. Didn't like that alcoholic beverages weren't included. Most other airlines offer wine or beer at no extra cost."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Gate unknown till last minute"
Pros: "Overall flight was fine."
Cons: "Sports equipment charge descriptions are vague, and not well understood by staff. They charged me for two additional bags Skis, and boot bag, one directions and for one bag on the return trip. A total of $300 extra total! I would either rented equipment, optimized packing, or selected another airline. In the end not a good airline to accommodate sports equipment. Be careful. Chicken dishes were bad."
Pros: "Direct flight LAX to Dublin with no lay overs"
Cons: "No toilet paper or paper hand towels in the bathroom. Early on in the flight I went to ask for toilet paper and was given a nod. Tried a different bathroom and no toilet paper there. Servicing the toilets on the full flight was neglected."
Cons: "The booking left no time to make it to the next flight. Had to purchase a separate flight last minute."
Cons: "Cramped seats no vegetarian food and our bags went missing for three days!"
Cons: "they charged me 100 dollars to check a bag - nothing at all about this during my purchase. i am so mad at these guys."
Cons: "Didn't take Dublin to LA."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight ever"
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Pros: "Flying overnight across the U.S., and then the Atlantic, to Dublin would have been very difficult if not for the accommodations and service provided by Aer Lingus. The reception was warm and comfortable. The in-flight food and service was perfect. The environment was conducive to sleeping during this red eye flight."
Cons: "I have no complaints, to be honest. The flight attendants were so welcoming and accommodating to every request. They were efficient and quick to respond to my questions and requests."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment provided"
Pros: "Everything on time, good crew service, good food"
Cons: "Entertainment system issues: slow response, flight info maps didn't work"
Pros: "Hostesses were pleasant, food was ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, on flight entertainment system did not work consistently."
Cons: "Paying for beverages seemed a bit much."
Pros: "seat near handicap toilet"
Cons: "Nowhere to lift my foot on entire flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for three days. Had to buy clothing. Staff seemed dismissive when I went in a search on the third day back to the EDI airport. They said they didn't have any information about it and that it was probably in Dublin. Later it showed up at my hotel with no call or notification. Not acceptable. Probably will avoid Aer Lingus in the future."
Pros: "i liked nothing from the experience on this leg or the journey. I was frustrated and angry."
Cons: "The check in procedure in Amsterdam took almost two hours. Then I was late to the gate. There was no assistance getting to the gate for none of the passengers who experienced these delays."
Pros: "I liked the level of concern the crew had for making sure we didn't miss our flights after severe delays in Amsterdam."
Cons: "I didn't like the security process. It was redundant and not well thought out."
Cons: "Baggage lost for mere one-hour flight from Amsterdam to Dublin with extended delay before it was recovered."
Pros: "Aer Lingus is a great airline overall."
Cons: "The movie selections. Too much Sci-fi and/or action adventure. Please mix it up with a variety of genres"
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "I was told I had three aisle seats back to back. When we got to our seats, we were one seat in from the aisle. They changed my original flight which had a 1 and 1/2 hrs layover to a flight that had a 20 and 1/2 hour layover and refused to pay for a hotel or meals for my family."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was too close! My knees touched for 7 hours. Plus, computer and seat support take up foot space. Very very uncomfortable for a moderately tall person (6'2")"
Pros: "We received an upgrade to Business class that we submitted a bid for -- it was the difference between heaven and the usual too small, too squashed intercontinental experience. The whole experience post-upgrade was top notch, from the service to the food. Thanks, Are Lingus!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to preorder better meals. Good selection of in-air movies. Sitting anywhere for almost 7 hours is no fun but it could have been much worse."
Cons: "Small seats. My tray table wouldn't stay up."
Pros: "Made great time crossing the Atlantic."
Cons: "This flight combination was a tough one, yet it did, in the end come together. The meal(s) were good enough (but not better than), though the stews could spend precious little time with any given passenger. Oh, the meal choices ran our such that we had a 1 choice choice. Odd. Though we got across the Atlantic pretty fast, the turbulence the pilots were unable/unwilling to evade was pretty frightening..."
Cons: "It took so long to get bags on the carousel it eliminated any extra time the pilot gave us in getting to the airport quickly."
Cons: "You lost my luggage with my dead mother's paintings."
Cons: "We arrived in Toronto from Dublin to get our connecting flight with two very tired children and were told by Air Canada that our connecting flight was never booked by Aer Lingus. We were told that the flight we were supposed to be on was full and there was no flights until the next morning. To top it off Air Canada could not locate our baggage and we were told to wait around and check back every half hour. If was past two in the morning Dublin time and our kids were exhausted and fell esleep in the airport. We could not wait around any longer with exhausted children so we booked a hotel and took our kids there without our luggage. Our kids were crying because our baggage was lost and thus was a shitty way to end our vacation and my birthday! Would not recommend flying with Aer Lingus or Air Canada. Horrible service."
Cons: "It wasn't written anywhere that my flight was serviced by air lingus. So I had to change terminals to check in barely made my flight. Slowest check in staff Ive ever encountered. No complimentary refreshments thought the credit card machine didn't work so I guess they were complimentary after all."
Pros: "Very helpful and kind"
Pros: "entertainment system"
Cons: "Our flights were changed numerous times."
Pros: "Crew was ok and the seat was a bit uncomfortable. I am over 6 feet so I always have a bit of a problem with the seat"
Cons: "Checking in was quite annoying because BA canceled our return and over the phone but we still had to transfer all our information upon checking. Boarding rather chaotic. Random searches were not organized. Seats were okay. Food just edible. Mostly the staff was polite and there was one attendant in coach who was very pleasant. Shoulder length blonde hair, she was genuine and cheerful. It was an okay flight, but my experience was more comfortable and the feeling of being dealt with as a person was more evident on my flight to London w BA. I appreciate that the flight went well but American Airlines still has a long way to go in customer genuine service and experience."
Cons: "They checked everyone’s carry on bags, which made the boarding process incredible slow, then they made you stand on a bus until it was full, to drive to the plane to walk up stairs in the rain. I kept my bag for 20 hours, flying from Vancouver to Calgary to London and before my flight to Madrid. They didn’t care that I said I didn’t want to give it up or that I had to make a connection. Madrid’s airport is notorious for have slow baggage handling, so they are making me wait. I packed for 2 weeks in a carry on and back pack to avoid checking luggage. I am disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
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! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."
Cons: "BA/KAYAK lost my seat booking details, so I had to pay again. Plane was 3 hours late leaving."
Pros: "On time, very pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Very good aircraft!"
Pros: "On time. Efficient"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Tiny sized seats, very narrow and no legroom. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Hospitality from Crew members. Food."
Cons: "24 hrs delay for boarding this flight. No wheel chair provided though I booked."
Pros: "Good variety of onboard entertainment. Middle seats felt roomy."
Cons: "The staff weren't the most professional (save for one or two members) and the food was not great."
Pros: "Helpful and courteous crew"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful within my two boys aged 6 and 7. There was really good room and the entertainment of Paddington 2 and then comedy shows was a great balance. Really enjoyed it."
Cons: "Only down side was the food, had to pay, quite expensive and didn’t really get ‘a meal’ as such."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Everything well. No issues"
Pros: "Entertainment is pretty good, a nice selection to choose from. The food has improved since last year with their new menu. Crew were pleasant enough."
Cons: "I paid for an extra leg room seat, which for me was in front of the bulkhead. However, I think this caused more discomfort than comfort. There is no gap under the bulkhead to put your feet, so although you don’t get a seat in front of you leaning back, there isn’t enough room to straighten your legs out which on a 12 hour flight isn’t comfortable."
Pros: "Virtually nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced. 90 minutes late departure due to “late inbound aircraft”. Uncomfortable seats - in “Club Europe”. Abysmal food - what would be an economy snack in a decent airline. Really, don’t bother with BA. It’s Ryanair with better livery."
Pros: "Security check was quick and easy."
Cons: "The flight left 35 minutes late but arrived on time"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and do help where possible."
Cons: "Choice of food is poor, not having a full service and having to pay for checked baggage from what was once “the world’s favourite”"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"
Pros: "The efficiency of every sing step from booking to boarding"
Cons: "The type of the people flew with me -loud and misbehaving. Crew couldn't do anything."
Pros: "Comfortable wear in business cabin"
Cons: "Food poor. Service mediocre. Fails to compete with middle eastern competitors"
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "Standard BA flight."
Cons: "Delayed departure missed connecting flight. Had to rebook and travel via Munich to make meeting."
Pros: "Crew were excellent. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boxes under the seat in front took up legroom (but it did ensure good entertainment options). Could have offered some more drinks."
Pros: "Flight was good . In long flight the food quantity should be increased but quality was good."
Pros: "An air steward called Frank was super cheerful and helpful. Really set a good note to the flight."
Cons: "Food was not great. Seat in Traveller Plus is hard and impossible to sleep on. Entertainment system had the same options as in August and the incomplete box sets."
Cons: "Boarding an absolute chaos, rude ignorant staff, old dirty airplane"
Pros: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Cons: "Full flight affected leaving time + 20 minute taxi to runway"
Pros: "The flight safety video and the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "I liked that the plane landed and I survived."
Cons: "The online check-in didn't work, the phone customer service only answered after a 20 min hold and was unhelpful, the seats were so close that the seat in front of me hit me in the head when the woman sitting in it reclined, and the gate attendant was rude. People taking this flight and expecting to do work or watch the in-flight entertainment shouldn't. There is not enough space to use your laptop and when the person in front of you reclines while you are trying to read, not only won't you be able to read but you won't be able to watch a movie either (unless you are very short) since the screen is tilted accordingly."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Cons: "I added a quick trip to Austria while I was in Europe and timed it so I would fly back to London and then back to LA on the same day. London had a huge wind storm on 10/21 so my flight from Austria landed 1 hour late, with that I missed my London-LAX flight on BA (that I purchased via Kayak). The BA agents tried to help me but were not able to use my Kayak ticket to re-book me or at least recover some of my investment. There was no phone number provided on my reservation and after an hour of trying to help me, they said I have to buy a brand new ticket. The cost for my return and my seat reservation both were lost and my new ticket was $1,600 (and I had to spend the night in a hotel at Heathrow as at that point all US flights left for the day). I usually book directly with the airlines because I want to avoid situations like this, so it is too bad that the one time I come to Kayak I end up having to buy a new ticket that was twice as expensive as the original one.

Pros: "I haven't left Miaimi. American Airlines employees are horrible. After arriving from London they told me to pick up my check in baggage proceed to drop bag near exit 5. When I arrived it was crowded nobody know which line is for checkin and which line is for dropping the bag. I finally went to the counter and ask and the lady said, she couldn't accept it as it was 30 left before departure. She pointed me to another lady who also washed her hand. They were both reluctant and finally accepted my baggage but the security line was too long for me to reach departure on time. Horrible. The ladies who at the departure counter have different asnwer for my checked in baggage. I/m so tired from this domestic flight that I haven't completed."
Pros: "Staff was exceptional."
Cons: "First a large number of the flight was flagged for special screening which meant that they had to do additional procedures and were very understaffed as many of us talking near 100 people had to stay behind and wait for over an hour as three employees screened us in detail. This while the rest of the plane was already boarded. Thus the flight left late and arrived very late to LAX. Secondly the refrigeration on board for food was broken thus spoilong the food so we only received one meal on an 11 hour flight which we were starving and not what we paid for during this flight. They did offer snacks but when not having a full meal as paid for it is a huge let down. Thirdly why is Wi-Fi not offered on this flight. Due to the late departure and late arrival we missed my connection to TUS and was not able to make calls or email during the flight. Not acceptable. Very unhappy and will never be flying with British Airways again. I WILL ALSO NEVER LET FRIENDS AND FAMILY FLY WITH THEM. An airline as prestigious as BA needs to work better at ensuring the minimum on offering wait we the customer pays for and this did not happen. Staff was amazing and very friendly but we were very dejected and felt that your brand suffered a lot with this experience. I do hope to hear from airline about this incident as my wife and I travel constantly."
Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Pros: "always friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The boarding in London. They did not call numbers or rows so people just squeezed...and pushed ... drinks If I sit on a window seat I sometimes do not notice the serving of liquids. I would appreciated it very much if they talk to me when they serve water and juice. Otherwise I get dehydrated. Happened last year on my flight back to the US, too.I had to get up and walk back to get water(2016). breakfast Breakfast used to be better with fresh fruits and cheese.and roll The pizzas are like cardboard, I do not care about. Other wise I am satisfied. Thanks"
Cons: "The BA crew was awful. I was not feeling well and wanted a cup of tea. I didn't realize you had to purchase it. I gave a member of the crew my credit credit card she said out loud "your card is declined" several people heard and then proceeded to hand me my card and walked away. I was mortified. I, of course thinking my bank had put a hold on my account because I was outside the US, called them to find out why it was declined and was told they had no idea and they did even see the $2.00 charge go through and therefore it wasn't declined on the bank's end. The way she handled it was awful, no discretion. I was visibly ill and just needed something warm to help me feel better. Needless to say I will never fly BA again and will let my company know how I was treated."
Pros: "We had ONE customer service rep in Heathrow who was incredibly helpful and tried to help get us home. She was wonderful."
Cons: "Their delayed flight from Milan to London caused us to miss our flight from London to NY, and thus our flight from NY to Denver, which was standby. When we explained how difficult it would be to catch another flight to Denver from NY with it being the weekend, and attempting to get a flight to another airport with higher chances of getting us home, their customer service rep informed us that as long as they 'fulfilled their contract' to get us to NY, it wasn't really their problem how we got home (or couldn't get home) after that."
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time, although flight was fully booked, boarding was quick."
Cons: "Nothing, flights to Frankfurt have always gone off on time for me."
Pros: "on time.."
Cons: "very busy no free tea coffee."
Pros: "My flight going to the UK was rough, but the flight home was as solid as being on the ground. This is my third round trip with BA and while the trip home last year I experienced poor customer service from the flight attendant assigned to our side of the plane, both my inbound and home bound flight crews, this time were exemplary. Very kind and caring. The pasta was very good."
Cons: "The single Halloween size kit-kat bar that we were given as a snack. Was so small that I naturally believed that we could take more than one. I was politely told that the singe 3.5inch twin wafers were all that we were allowed per person. We have a candy jar, in our office and with the extra supply in the supply closet, we would have been able to give everyone at least two. So, my recommendation is if you are flying transatlantic, to stock up at Heathrow for extra food. Also, the seats were very very small. I was lucky and the plane was not sold out, so both flights my seat mate and myself were able to put a seat between each other. I found myself reasoning that for the price of the flight I was paying for transport to England not for comfort."
Pros: "great selection of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "At JFK there was a long wait for the luggage, which ended up not being delivered to the carousel, after we had waited for almost 2 hours. Granted, there was some snow and some technical issue since the fire alarm system was flashing the whole time, but still, there were only two announcements made during that time, and the second one to let us know that we'd have to arrange for delivery of our luggage on the website. By that time, it was past 11;30pm and everyone was dead tired, when the flight had been supposed to land at 7:25pm. I think the blame is to be laid on the JFK installations. Everywhere I travel in Europe, airports are in brand new condition, and not only departure areas like in the US. No wonder baggage delivery was a mess after just a little snow/"
Cons: "Boarding process atrocious! First a gate change from A to C gates, requiring a train to transit. Then, after walking down a jetway, we were sent through an emergency exit, down two flights of stairs and herded onto buses, and I mean herded. We (including elderly and moms with infants) alongwith our carry-ons were harshly ordered to squeeze together on a bus until there was literally no room to move. A lengthy bus ride with very disgruntled passengers to plane was followed by another set of stairs up to the cabin door. Finally, our departure was delayed 30 minutes while the bags of 2 passengers who got lost in the airport (probably on a bus or train) were retrieved. Not sure whether the fault lies with Heathrow or British Airways, but the experience was bad enough to avoid both in future."
Pros: "They changed my seat when I asked them too."
Cons: "The stewardess told me for the last meal, that they ran out the no. Vegetarian meal so I must choose the veg one. Later he said he gave me the preference for the earlier meal so this one shouldn't be a problem if I didn't get what I asked for. Totally blew my mind. The audacity with which he gave me his explanation was extraordinary. Sorry British airways, don't need that attitude. Wrote to them about this, haven't yet replied back. The flight was pretty old by itself. Not like the ones that go from London to United States. The Seats were smaller and had a very uneasy contour, the entire plane just looked a little banged up. The crew always seemed in a rush, to busy to even hear or look around."
Short flight no fuss on time
I was wrongly told I had to present a covid test, despite the fact that I'm a resident of Denmark. This then resulted in my having to rush to the other side of the airport to get a test, pay 42€, all of this within a few minutes of baggage drop closing. When I returned and asked a different staff member of I could check in despite the fact my test results aren't out yet they said yes since I do not need a test, as I had previously assumed. Staff should be briefed better on entry requirements for countries. All of this could have easily found on Google.
Cons: "It is very uncomfortable to fly 5 hours on a seat without the possibility to lean back. The fixed back of the seat might be acceptable on short flights, but not on a 5 hours flight."
Pros: "Crew was just ok nothing more nothing less.. The general service of easy jet its better for me not operate..."
Cons: "Just to behave to people like human beings... I wont never choose this particular airline to travel..it was my last one.."

Cons: "A hot breakfast"
Pros: "Crew bright polite and friendly. Professional"
Cons: "Not being easyjet. Terribly inefficient self check in for bag drop. Manchester airport appalling as usual. Not enough easiest staff to help with machines going wrong all time. Huge slow queues. Stupid idea for these machines. Slower than old system and you still need to pay staff."
Pros: "Enough leg room to extend legs under the seat in front. Orderly exit row by row instead of a scrum. Having a window seat usually means you are last to get off!"
Pros: "Was a easyJet flight"
Cons: "Could have been Singapore airlines"
Pros: "Good crew - efficient, polite and made the trip easy"
Cons: "The usual shennanigans being herded into a crappy space before boarding.."
Pros: "Straight forward flight"
Cons: "Economy flights are not known for the space"
Pros: "Short flight so no food although drinks are offered. No entertainment on short flight. Seats ok for a short flight only."
Pros: "I absolutely loved it. The staff was very kind, the plane was comfy and we saw a lot of things. Wonderful."
Pros: "The journey was made easy & stressfree with all our info on the easyJet app. Staff were very friendly on both flights. Paid for the extra leg room & that made all the difference."
Pros: "Very fast turnaround, prompt boarding and disembarking."
Pros: "We got there fine :)"
Cons: "The flight was late which complicated things for us in Stockholm."
Pros: "Despite an hour's delay on the runway (not easyJet's fault) and some turbulence, we still arrived with time to spare for our onward travel, so the pilot must have made up some lost time."
Cons: "The wait on the runway - French Air Traffic Control strike."
Pros: "Kept well informed about ghastly delay"
Cons: "3 hours 11 mins late arrival at destination"
Pros: "Cheap fare"

Cons: "Nothing really. Didn't have any food so can't comment on that."
Pros: "Once I got to the plane, everything was fine. The crew did their best to accommodate everyone. ."
Cons: "It was getting there that was a pain. I am a handicapped passenger, traveling alone, walking on a cane. When you enter Terminal 1, you have to turn left and walk about 150 meters to an "assistance station" to get a wheelchair before you even check in for the flight. So for me it was walk 150 meters to wait for a wheelchair, be wheeled back to the airline's desk to check in, then go back the way you came to pass through security. (By the way, in the UK, you must remove all gels for a separate inspection, meaning toothpaste and shampoo, and they must be 100ml or less, or else you must check the bag.) After that rigmarole, you don't even go to the gate, because the flight doesn't have a gate assignment until about 35 minutes before departure. Then I had to climb stairs to get to the cabin. Shouldn't an airport in a market this large have jet bridges for every flight?"
Pros: "Punctuality, service and how easy is to check in through the app"
Cons: "Everything went pretty well"
Pros: "That we had priority boarding because 2e had a small child with us"
Cons: "There was a delay on both flights. I had a small child with me which was hard ."
Cons: "Return flight on Friday night cancelled, no reason given. Next alternative offered Monday afternoon, still awaiting compensation."
Pros: "Flew from Manchester to Hamburg. Seated exit row in 11C. Leg room great. Crew was efficient. Good cheap flight. Delayed but kept well informed."
Cons: "Delay and boarding in Manchester. 'Now boarding' on notice board 10 mins before flight arrived."
Pros: "Crew were really nice"
Cons: "Queue and staff at Nice airport were so poor/slow. Also flight was delayed"
Cons: "The airport staff clueless. The flight attendents were terrible, one guy wouldn't stop talking about himself and how great he was. the plane was cramped and smelled."
Pros: "Take off to landing everything was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed over four hours. Didn't take it as I had already missed my meeting in Basel."
Cons: "2 hours to get to the aeroplane. 1 hour in easyJet queue. 1 hour in security. Only just made the flight. People should be fired for this continued incompetence and poor customer service."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2:30 hours"
Pros: "Flight was timely."
Cons: "There was a rowdy bachelor party group on the flight that was obnoxious. We paid extra to have our luggage checked so we could use the overhead bins for our backpacks. Were told by the crew we could not use the overhead bins for larger backpacks since they needed them for other luggage. Then someone else put their backpack up in the overhead bin and the flight crew told us that was their option."
Pros: "Clean cabin."
Cons: "I always seem to sit next to an obese passenger who simply cannot fit in one seat (so they spill into mine)."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, once we were permitted onto aircraft the boarding was quick as both forward and rear doors were used."
Cons: "The crew didn't bother to offer a full retail service on board, aircraft had seat pads missing, crew sat eating for bulk of journey. Delayed inbound meant plane was over an hour late, and not cleaned between service."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and onboard refreshments ok. Staffs were polite so on the scheme of things it was a good flight."
Pros: "Price, friendly staff-"
Cons: "Super Strict luggage rules! Can't even have a purse as a second carry on!! So beware, the extra luggage fee was as much as th flight itself!!! But they were supper nice about it!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, flight good"
Cons: "You changed the airplane and didn't tell your customers. I did't have my seat and we had to wait 5-10 min before getting seated. We were already on the plane when we discovered what was happening, blocking the aisle. Very unconfortable"
Pros: "Delay as usual"
Cons: "Long delay as usual which caused very inconvenient domino effect in London."
Pros: "Smooth flight path."
Cons: "Left ramp 35 minutes late... Taxiing to take-off runway took too long and no explanations. Flight was over an hour late in arriving - and then at the furthest possible gate from immigration. Connecting flight out of South terminal nearly missed. What a disaster the entire Gatwick experience continues to be. Will avoid it next time - which may mean avoiding EasyJet."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "First, when getting my boarding pass I was NEVER notified that I had the right of one bag only inside the cabin. Once I reached the gate I had to check in one bag and pay a ridiculous amount for it (more than the ticket itself) You should be much more proactive in communicating this as most airlines allow one bag and one personal item on board, so most of travelers might be used to this policy. Then, seating space is very cramped, not even a drink is complementary, and it is not very tasteful to have the place full of advertisements and have a market inside the plane"
Cons: "Last row on the A320 and doesn't have a window so makes it feels very cramped and uninviting."
Pros: "Straightforward process"
Pros: "No issues getting on flight pretty straight forward."
Cons: "Drunk and loud people on the flight."
Cons: "We were told to board but then waited in line an hour We then waited on the tarmac for 45mins We then arrived and waited for the bus A whole lot of waiting for a simple quick flight"
Pros: "Left absolutely on the dot. Everything very clean and comfortable, crew very friendly and professional. That includes the Ryanair people in the airport who guided me (first time flying alone) to make sure I was doing everything right."
Pros: "Staff were fine."
Cons: "Paid for legroom, there was none!"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Check in was a complete disaster. I only needed to check my suitcase as we had our boarding passes already. It was anarchy and we nearly missed our flight despite being there hours early purely because the check in procedure was so chaotic. Then to top it off, my bag was lost and I was given a stranger’s baggage tag. I don’t know how they will be able to trace my bag with this. It is currently missing in action. Great start to a long awaited holiday!"
Cons: "Delays, with poor comms. After advising of delays, they called us to form queues at the gate, but it was more than 1.5 hours before we started boarding. That’s 1.5 hours standing in line with no communication! No apologies from staff, and when we did start boarding a member of staff was so annoyed at some passengers who we’re in the wrong queue that they called out to the entire queue, (quote) ‘the little baby Jesus is sending you a sign so look to the heavens and you’ll see a sign which says priority to the left and non-priority to the rigjt, ok?’ Again, this is after keeping us queuing with no apologies and no refreshments for 1.5 hours. In all, we were three hours delayed, and not one member of staff even mentioned it. Staff on board were really poor also: huffing and rolling their eyes at passengers ordering food. Genuinely shocking service."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Take off delayed by over 3 hours, poor communication,noisy boisterous passengers."
Cons: "Delayed at Stansted due to Donald Trump"
Pros: "Cabin crew remained calm and polite"
Cons: "Almost 3 hrs late, and no communication from Ryanair a all (on board and trackers as on time until already 30 minutes post planned departure time, got us all on board an hour late ajd made us sit there for another 90 minutes without any communication fo an hour, no water or snacks etx (30 degrees that day)"
Pros: "The price of the flight was fair. I had booked 4 days in advance and overall the seat was comfy, leg room was good and flight crew okay and apologetic about the delays."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by nearly an hour. The boarding staff member was rather rude and loved talking about how much Ryanair always delayed at the moment, which I felt was odd to be bragging about how the company you're working for isn't performing well and my suitcase was damaged and now has a rather large hole in its side"
Pros: "Best Ryanair flight I have been on. We'll organized from start to finish"
Pros: "Great job! Timely departure and arrival, quick, uncomplicated and easy boarding, pleasant staff."
Pros: "I liked that I got a seat on the plane and it didn't fall out of the sky"
Cons: "Stansted Airport was just a complete shambles. Ryanair used a gate thhar had almost no seating and the flight left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Nothing although crew were friendly"
Cons: "3 hour delay in both directions this week. No announcements made about delay. Gates changed 2x. Poor communication throughout. Email from Ryanair about cancellation/refund options received AFTER flight. Got home at 1 am. Truly horrible experience"
Pros: "We managed to arrive."
Cons: "I disliked the lack of information about the delays, the poor facilities and extremely rude staff. It’s understandable that they’ve been working all day, but unfortunately this is the job they chose and I am paying for service of which I should be satisfied with."
Cons: "As usual with ryan air it's all about the cash. Missed my flight because of lip balm and a baggage check and then when I asked for help. They basically did nothing. I will never fly with you again. Luckily managed to get a B.A flight for £95.00 the same day and Ryan air wanted £413.00"
Cons: "Stansted airport is very poor. Not enough space, facilities or anything. Ryanair flight delayed. “Boarded” into cramped holding area. Very poor form."
Pros: "With Ryanair, you can only really like the price and the people. To be fair though, m the toilet was clean.."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7.30 am, but was still refueling after an earlier flight at that time. In a way it was lucky that it was late; if it had been in time, we would have been queueing on the Stansted tarmac in the rain. As it was, the rain had just stopped while we waited at the foot of the aircraft stairs. We actually took off 45 mins late. The new, additional-cost priority boarding is a joke: almost everyone was a "priority". Several passengers didn't understand the long "priority" queue, so joined it only to be turned away at check-in."
Pros: "Boarding was by bus but worked out ok."
Cons: "Chaos over seating families together, one family of two adults and two infants got moved twice, another family was moved once due to allocated seating not putting families together. We eventually offered our seats to try and help out which eventually the reluctant crew accepted. Emergency exits row passenger was allowed to keep their handbag and another had a plastic bag under their seat. (Regulations state no bags at emergency exits). One passenger was chatting using his mobile phone during taxi out. Captain having exited the flight deck for a break then opened the cockpit door and whilst remained open then proceeded to have a nice chat with the cabin crew. Crew were having a bad day. Food was over cooked and nasty. Seat comfort apauling no elbow room and no legroom, still as Ryanair say you only get what you pay for whereas I’d rather have value for money rather than just a cheap and nasty experience."
Pros: "It was a cheap flight. Crew on board was ok."
Cons: "Plane arrived at Stansted late. The queues were horrendous and not clearly marked. One of the ground staff was very rude to an Indian lady who only asked if it was the correct queue to be in. Perhaps the customer was Indian born and the ground staff was British born of Indian descent? Flight arrived late to destination by about 30mins."
Cons: "Everything about Ryanair"
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
Pros: "The Price of the flight that was all."
Cons: "Very unorganized no idea about time scheduling boarding right up until take off and then spent nearly a further hour trying to get off of the run way. No reason given just blamed ground staff at the airport no apology felt very unprofessional. Should of made me effort explaining why we were delayed had to cancel plans as we were nearly an hour later than taking off was planned."
Cons: "The rest especially the quick boarding ( 1h30 to wait )"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Thę policy to make sure you do not sit with your family and have to buy seats to make sure you are all sitting together. The salaries of the staff are the worst in the industry."
Cons: "We boarded after the time it was supposed to take off and once in Barcelona we had to wait about 25 minutes to collect our bags."
Pros: "Well to get in the plane we were waiting almost 1 hour, and now that am writting you waiting again 1 hour for the baggage . I will never again flight with this company never again"
Pros: "I was by myself with a toddler, a pram and 2 hand baggage. down"
Cons: "I thought the would take at least one of them at the gate as usual and I asked if they could help with pram and they said NO! It was a nightmare I had to go down a lot stairs. The only person that helped me it was an old lady! This is a rubbish service I won’t reccomend to anyone with kids!"
Pros: "Nice staff, flight was fine"
Cons: "Extras are ridiculous and couldn’t pay through the website so stressed about getting on the flight. Exorbitant cost of carrying a bottle of wine"
Pros: "all airline staff caring and helpful"
Pros: "Late incoming aircraft. Delayed boarding as we were told that there was a wait for an assistant to facilitate the boarding of a passenger using a wheelchair."
Pros: "The worst service in my life If I can I will be give 0"
Cons: "Rubbish service Never again"
Pros: "Chatting with fellow passengers in the queue"
Cons: "Lack of regular information regarding delays. Even the occasional "we still have no updates" would have been helpful."
Pros: "The crew and polo te where very helpful and the plan e arrived on time."
Cons: "Everything was good!!"
Cons: "The Lithuanian crew team was far too casual. Service as well. Informal."
Cons: "Was freeze/cold inside .."
Pros: "The crew were quick and efficient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to stand outside on the tarmac in the freezing cold for about twenty minutes before we were allowed to board."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for everything!"
Pros: "Great price to Pisa. I was asleep the entire flight so I didn't suffer too much from the seating"
Cons: "Lack of seating in boarding area"
Pros: "great service, no turbulence"
Cons: "delayed by an hour which we only found out about when we went to the gate."
Pros: "Getting home so fast"
Cons: "Unrespectulful customer"
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."
Pros: "The flights are good value and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Due to mass cancellations we had days worrying if we were able to go on holiday our holiday or get the return flight home. They got the planes at the wrong gates so our flights were delayed for and hour, a passenger being sick very close to us was not moved away into a quieter area of the plane. Our luggage was damaged when we picked it up."
Pros: "Ok, it's cheap, but added extras take the shine off this."
Cons: "To check in I was forced to book seats both ways, then had to pay extra on top of original price to pick the seats. There were a few spare seats on the flight so it wasn't a case of overbooked."
Pros: "Crew were competent and happy, not overworked, dour or dim."
Cons: "Big queues to board, followed by bus transfer to plane => first ones to stand in line at the last ones off the bus to board the plane. My fault really, but why encourage people to stand in a queue for 30 mins at all?"
Pros: "Paying for the extras to make my journey as better for me"
Cons: "Selling of the scratch cards and cabin crew asking everyone row by row for change for €20."
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't go"
