Pros: "We got to our destination, crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Delayed flight by an hour, airplane smelled like body odour as we boarded. Leg room was insufficient (5ft 11, not a huge traveller). Cramped bus to get on aircraft, overpriced food and drink so did not buy any."
Pros: "That I could buy a ticket on the day (EasyJet said they were sold out at the desk but Kayak had one online - well done Kayak)."
Cons: "The queue to check in that was caused partly by weighing cases for the cargo hold and trying to charge extra at a higher 'desk rate' forcing people to either pay the desk rate or open their bags and transfer stuff to their carry on bag. The lack of room for carry on bags, requiring that some bags be transferred to the hold (caused by the above 'luggage transferring fiasco). The two people at the desk with a queue of hundreds waiting to check in. The one hour delay in the flight. The marathon walk to the other end of the airport to board the plane."
Cons: "The plane had a hole in the wing. we sat for an hour on our sits till we got an engineer to look at it and put sticky tape. It was very stressfull flight. we couldnt go to the toilets while we were sitting on the tarmac for 1 hr"

Fortunately, we all got a seat in the end, but my family of 5 was scattered all over the plane, with 3 of us in the exit isle, which would have been great if our kids weren't all < 12."

Cons: "Some of your flight staff need to cheer up a bit at times , why when you are already ripping us off for a small can of beer for £4.50 it’s warm at least chill it for that price , why is it as soon as the plane stops people have to grab their luggage first and block up the aisles your not going to get there any quicker"
Pros: "Crew was nice and polite"
Cons: "Boarding process was an absolute mess."
Pros: "Fast boarding (at extra cost) Good value tickets Online check in and boarding pass printing"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats Nothing at all to eat or drink without payment no terminal dock - walking on airport apron during Storm 'Brian' no fun"
Cons: "late departure"
Pros: "No problems at all"
Cons: "Bus ticket sold on plane was quite restrictive and left every 50-60min not every hour as stated onboard."
Pros: "Nothing special to mention"
Cons: "No luggage room above our head, we had to leave our luggage somewhere else far from our seats and the crew should help us promptly to get those luggage back but no, we had to get it ourselves and had to wait till the very end after all the other passengers have already got off the plane. Not fair on us when we were sat next to exit but had to anxiously wait. Shame!"
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: "Staff were pleasant, eager to help, efficient. Flight arrived early."
Cons: "A long time standing waiting for boarding - no seats."
Pros: "The crew were amazing, and had a lot to deal with,"
Cons: "That we late, but it was understandable, could have explained why whilst waiting"
Pros: "We were kept well informed about the delay. Appreciated the captain coming out to explain very quickly what the problem was."
Cons: "Thought I'd got a window seat at the back instead very claustrophobic seat with no view."
Pros: "The online booking & check in saved time. Process from baggage check in to boarding were smooth & hassle-free. That's what I need for a short flight. Will recommend to my brother when he & his wife travel to Europe end of this year"
Cons: "No time so approached the counter staff at the airport about baggage hold, info provided was not complete. Luckily found some time to double check online, saved €€€ on baggage hold. Also, pls ignore rating on the food & entertainment, there were none. Overall, experience good enough for my short flight."
Cons: "Flight due at 1550. At 1500 boards said now boarding. The plane hadn't even landed! Kept waiting over an hour in airless crowded room with no seats. Silly notices about wonderful easyJet service on screen added to insult. Eventually took off 1625. Crew said sorry for 10 minute delay - actually 35 minutes."
Cons: "Drink /food trolley didn't make it to row 18 during the flight"
Cons: "Why the crew disnt tell us at the check in desk that we are not allowed to bring ladies hand baggage. If they told us at the first place. We could put our stuffs in our luggage. Does easy jet try to earn more money???!??"
Cons: "the Madrid - Bristol connection is a mess. Grossly delayed on the way up and down, which in the case of a night flight can let you stranded in the airport to wait for the next bus to the southwest for a couple of hours, like it happened to me."
Cons: "There's no lifts to board the planes. So with your on-board luggage, a buggy and a baby it is really hard with the stairs and there's no one around to help"
Pros: "The flight was very late over an hour late and as a results I have to take taxi from schipol airport to Amersfoort which cost me a lot"
Pros: "On time fantastic !"
Pros: "Loved the cheap fare - went off pretty much as expected - big crowds at security in Bristol, paid for express - it seems every little extra is charged for - paid £15 each for an extra legroom seat which also gave us priority boarding and an extra bag, although it wasn't clear if they were being strict about hand luggage or not."
Cons: "We sat in the XL first row - seats don't recline! and everyone trooped past us when boarding and a stiff breeze blew on us through the door. Had to keep our down coats on but then when the door closed and it warmed up we weren't allowed to take it off because it was an emergency exit row and now clutter! So we got a little overheated until at altitude - weird. The coffee was £2.50 for instant! weird."
Pros: "Delay as usual"
Cons: "Long delay as usual which caused very inconvenient domino effect in London."
Pros: "It got me to my destination"
Cons: "Over an hour's delay on an evening flight explained as a 'technical issue' via the app but no reason given at the airport."
Pros: "Great cheerful helpful crew as ever, even if the lady on the bag on the bag drop seemed rather unhappy."
Cons: "Luton Airport. This is the first time I have landed there and I think it competes for the worst airport in the world. Very cramped, long queues at passport control, toilets out of order everywhere, awful decor, terrible signage. Dirty crowded, depressing. And the train service at the station is also dreadful."
Pros: "Actual flight good once we got going"
Cons: "Delayed departure by two hours"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and professional"
Cons: "Nothing i can think of to be honest"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Ryanair - takes you from A to B on time"
Cons: "Really rude staff member getting people through to plane. Food I ordered came to me as something totally different because they had run out of what I ordered they didn’t ask me if I wanted it instead so had to refuse it as I can’t eat cheese so I ended up going without."
Cons: "Very unorganised, one person checking in luggage, long queues, two flights mixed together. The boarding gate was really badly organised, passengers being held in a very small space to wait for a bus, the buses were late. Priority boarding wasn’t being checked so everyone was being sent through into the holding space which was about 3 metres by 7 metres standing room only. The plane was late."
Pros: "Flight got me home..."
Cons: "Tatty magazine/menu that was passed round passengers, unclear cabin baggage sizing and almost made to pay extra fee for something that fit!"
Pros: "Great to have cheap flights so must be remembered"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, stuck in hot bus on tarmac."
Cons: "Waiting in long lines for a extended period of time to board the flight. It’s almost like someone is trying to make things more uncomfortable for passengers"
Pros: "Clean, comfy, practical. Just as you expect of low cost flight."
Cons: "Staff were tired and although not rude looked like they'd had enough."
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Width of seats was far to small, the seats covers are dated and gruby, the queing process for standard and fast track was a shambles. Checking in was slow due to there being only 1 desk open for a full flight."
Pros: "Cabin crew very good, lovely flights out and back but food sparse. Lots in the in flight magazine but seemingly little on board. I was v hungry!! Mr O'Leary, love the cheap flights and booking system fine but you could make more money from better food options. Pity."
Cons: "Much waiting in line for most of an hour bofore gate opens and incredibly slow inflight food service"
Pros: "Hubo una persona discapacitada a la se necesitaba ayuda. Y le dijeron prioridad para sentarse primero en su silla del avión. Entonces las azafatas inmediatamente dejaron pasar los pasajeros creando así un bloqueo en medio del avión que tomó mucho tiempo."
Cons: "La comida estuvo bien. El servicio a la silla fue rapido.. Aunque los precios no son los mas económicos"
Pros: "Short and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Setting off time delayed by 40 minutes"
Cons: "Staff were quite rude and didn't spend time explaining the delay we were having in English"
Cons: "Flight delayed, so usual knock on effect with lifts, people coming to meet."
Pros: "Bad and expensive"
Cons: "Bad expensive and delayed"
Cons: "We were not told the reason for the delay. We were not given an estimate of the length of the delay. No update information was given. We all understand there can be problems; but just tell us what they are? Then, we were all called forward to board, but I was still standing 45 minutes later in the queue. Let us wait in (relative) comfort in the terminal (restrooms, drinks, wider seats etc), don't start to board us ridiculously early."
Pros: "On time and fairly quick baggage retrieval. Being able to check-in before you leave UK is very useful."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak and although it does warn about extra charges for baggage, I feel I was duped because I booked for 3 check-in bags at additional cost thinking that would mean for outbound flight and return but once the booking transferred to Last minute on completion it turned out I only had check-in baggage for the outbound flight (different airline) and not for the Ryanair return flight. Ryanair charges more if you book check-in baggage after the original booking so the flights were much more expensive than I had thought. Kayak did not help with this issue. I would not use them again."
Cons: "Having chosen a seat in the emergency exit row, was told that I couldn't use my jacket to cover myself while I slept; I either had to wear it or store it in the overhead locker. I understand that this row needs to be kept clear in case of emergency (as the name indeed suggests), but I don't see much difference between wearing the coat and using it to cover myself. Worse than that though was the way the stewardess communicated this to me with a cold stare. I'm waiting for the day I can write a positive review of a Ryanair flight."
Pros: "What did I like: Price, punctuality"
Cons: "What didn't I like: Comfort (3h1/2 on these seats is inacceptable), embarcation through "bridge" in Madrid, outside stairway in the rain!"
Cons: "-On 20/12/2017 the flight was expect at 09:50 it was delayed until midday. -On 05/01/2018 I had received a message(on my mobile phone) to confirm my return and I try many times to do it without success. so i did my best to trying to call the number 080000834000 and the person who attended my call ask me to repeat several times which it make me disappoint. So i have to paid 50. 00 euros for it and plus I had to pay 40.00 euros for each suitcase (total 2 suitcases = 80.00 euros) Which i suppossed i had been paid when i booked my holidays, and no much information has been given in it. in the end too expensive. I will look at other low cost airlines in the future."
Cons: "Too expensive for what you get. Bad landing! Oh dear"
Pros: "The usual Ryanair ‘quality’: you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to technical issues… issues that were detected with all passengers and luggage onboard! 2 hours anda half delay!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed took forever to get us on the plane"
Pros: "It was nearly on time. Only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Pilot wasn't keen on communicating with us poor passengers. Where were we flying? What speed? What were we passing over? Perhaps that information would cost extra."
Pros: "I was able to take my guitar as hand luggage, which is very important. Even though guitars exceed the hand baggage limits, many professionals need to be able to carry on their instruments. Priority boarding is essential."
Cons: "Way too hard with the line for a person in her 60's."
Pros: "Once boarded it was very smooth"
Cons: "Over 3&a half hours delay was sooooo painful"
Cons: "The requirement to pay for a boarding pass after having checked in as required. The US airlines do not have this requirement. This is a very negative experience. Our gate was changed at the very last moment."
Cons: "Nos hicieron esperar dos horas para luego decirnos que iban a cambiar de Gate"
Cons: "It was a 6am flight on Monday morning and the crew did not stop using the speaker for stupid and things. Trying to sell all type of good and perfumes. Please a bit of respect for passengers, Its very intrusive."
Cons: "Priority boarding And disembarkation But had to wait half an hour for the parking people WCP recommended by Ryanair then a 15 Minuit journey to collect the car what a joke This was the only downside of what was a good trip In Poland booked taxi and tours were there waiting for us no waiting around"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, from a flying point of view."
Cons: "The "preboarding method". Waiting standing up for an hour. Comfort on board is quite "Spartan", meaning not enough room for anything, no amenities for free, etc, etc..."
Pros: "Typical Ryanair flight. You know what you are getting"
Cons: "Delayed. Chaotic boarding"
Pros: "Crew was patient and upbeat."
Cons: "Boarding time kept changing. I stood in line from 2:47 until I finally took my seat on the plane at 4:03!! If you are not checking luggage and the plane is full as was the case, you are made to stand in line because only the first 90 carry ons are guaranteed. The heat in the boarding area was unbearable. Then we proceeded to the boarding tunnel where we were made to wait AGAIN in the heat. I felt like a hostage packed into a tin can! Never in 50 years of air travel around the world have I experienced such an inefficient process. I will never fly Ryan Air again."
Pros: "Safe, clean"
Cons: "To difficult to get boarding passes on line . Site has a problem changes info. Had to cancel two flights because they were not helpful.your person who took our nfromation on line gave us confirmation then at airport would not let us board even though the info was on her screen at airport. There fore we had to cancel another flight through you , cancel car rentals etc,hotel, no I was not pleased with service. We missed gong to Lourdes, had to book another flight to Madrid spent entire day at airport trying to go some where as you had no other flights which was costly, many expenses we had no counted on and your girl was rude and left the counter went on here break leaving us standing there with 2 young kids and myself k 83 years old.so we could continue our trip very disappointed"
Pros: "It seems if you don't pay for the seat attribution, the system splits automatically group/couple even if with infant! My husband and I have been separated by more than 30 rows but we had 2 aisle seats! Hopefully a kind person has accepted to exchange his middle seat with my husband seat. In addition, there was no priority to boarding with infant if. You don't pay the priority boarding (although we have to carry the baby in our arm). We have to ask several times to have the specific belt for infant, hopefully it was not our first flight and we knew it was mandatory! We have as well asked for a life jacket for our 4 months baby and they informed us infant and adult life jacket are in the same place above the seat..."
Cons: "Lack of safety rules for infant (to request seat belt, no infant life jacket) Priority of buying options rather to help when traveling with infant (automatic separation on seat distribution, no boarding priority)"
Pros: "I needed a glass of water as soon as I boarded to take some tablets as I was starting to feel unwell. The crew accommodated this immediately and were very pleasent."
Cons: "Why people don't just pay if they want to sit together. It is that way now so go with it rather than main and play chess on the plane, asking people if they will change seats. Sort it out your adults. Surely you can cope for a few hours?"
Pros: "Very friendly and bearing in mind the bad weather conditions in stansted the pilot made the flight very smooth"
Cons: "The 1.5 hour delay with no info. We're told that there was a problem that had been affecting the flight all day, they ccould have forewarned us as a matter of courtesy."
Cons: "Flight delayed again in a weeks time"
Cons: "CHAOTIC. Found the Ryanair booking site difficult to log into with my booking number constantly not being recognised. Once I'd booked it was pay, pay, pay for luggage and seats making the flight expensive. Biggest insult was they took my money for a transfer, return email saying it was accepted. A later email saying it was cancelled with no refund of money. A 12 month credit note ( not seen yet ) which I can't use in 12 months. Now feeling ripped off Will not be flying with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Price was good. Staff are good in general but felt that the cabin crew lacked professionalism - a tough job noted however. Overall very happy with the service - please note my comments."
Cons: "Why did I pay for a priority que ? The point being exactly what ? The herding of customers into a cattle gate affair ? Last call 45 mins before the flight. Cheap flight - cheap organised. I note below someone has stated crew were professional and VERY entertaining ...... thatnis not professional I am afraid. A crew that is busy entertaining the passengers is a crew that lacks focus on the primary role of the cabin safety ... Human Factors !"
Cons: "A printed boarding pass is required, however, no where at the airport to print them. The second rep took pity on us and wrote out boarding passes. The first rep couldn't care less."
Pros: "En general fue una buena experiencia para ser un vuelo low cost. Importante saber que los asientos no se reclinan y que si el vuelo va lleno sólo caben las primeras 90 maletas en cabina, las demás se pueden despachar al momento del abordaje sin cargo."
Cons: "Cambian de Gate bastante, así que hay que estar atentos. A nosotros nos cambiaron tres veces de Gate en nuestro vuelo de Madrid a Dublín."
Pros: "Price only."
Cons: "Gathering in long queues, not enough room for seating and luggage, stewardesses not really nice and many other remarks."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the pilot landed without any ear discomfort for the three of us as he kept his decent not too quickly"
Cons: "The food supplied by Ryanair is very expensive rubbish"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "The delay no information why Struggling to find room for your bags when you have paid for luggage Staff where rude when you asked questions why we are late why no room for bags"
Cons: "Delayed flight , loads of drunks onboard and very noisy"
Pros: "The price was very good, new plane crew were efficient and no hold ups brill."
