Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Online layout of the plane is deceiving. The plane isn't separated into classes is just a standard set up throughout the plane.

Cons: "Luggage situation"
Cons: "I received a flight delay notification saying that my flight is delayed by 37 minutes. But I still did arrive airport 2 hours before my flight, checked bag On time and went through security clearance 1.5 hrs before. The gate number was not assigned and later I found out that my flight took off on time. So I had to come out by front desk and rebook the flight to different airport which cost my extra taxi fare half day and too much Hassel. Never ever flying again in easy jet."
Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."
Pros: "Spacious seats for an airplane! And the takeoff and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "Being from the US, we weren't familiar with the boarding process (no gate # until almost time)- but that was our challenge, not anyone else's. we really enjoyed flying Easyjet."
Pros: "Check in was efficient and good customer service"
Cons: "The plane is "bare-bones." I get it, it's economy. However, that's no excuse to neglect basic comfort. The seats for both my flights, two different planrd, were worn such that I could feel the medal supports. Very uncomfortable. We sat in the rear. Stewartess sat behind and loudly gossiped the entire flight. Would I fly again? If no other option, yes"
Cons: "Failing to check in before getting to the airport will result in them selling your already bought ticket to someone else. This happened to me and had to by a one-way ticket with British Airways at double the cost of the original return ticket from EasyAir. Did not even try to help."
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: "not much. that flight is cheap."
Cons: "When we arrived at the check-in counter we checked in together with my husband. I told the check-in counter personnel that we would like to sit together. My husband was put in seat 1F and I was put in 2F. We didn't look at the boarding passes until we reached the plane and saw this. The row where my husband sat was empty (row 1) so I don't know why i was put on row 2 when we could have sat together on row 1. This is very bizarre. Furthermore I had to walk half way down the aisle to put my suitcase because all the overhead lockers were full. The flight attendant who was overseeing all this was very rude and kept telling me that I need to walk all the way down to find a space to store the luggage. She could have offered to have a look with me and try to squeeze it somewhere closer than half way down the plane."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "Delay as usual"
Cons: "Long delay as usual which caused very inconvenient domino effect in London."
Pros: "I went airport for boxing pass they changed 165 £ if some one dnt no"
Pros: "never ever use this Momondo again"
Cons: "no customer service"
Pros: "Politeness of the staff"
Pros: "Online booking was nice and easy."
Cons: "Plane was small ,seats were not comfortable and plane was not connected with eye so passengees were waiting outside of plane in cold weather."
Cons: "App was down couldn’t check in had to pay cash(euros for trip). 250 euros for 180 pound as Ryanair only accepted pound (had to change at airport hence the rates) absolutely disgusting"
Cons: "Worst plane seat of all carriers. No leg room, to close to seat in front no where to put anything , no usb charger. My local bus is more comfortable & better equipped. Same as 90% of people only fly Ryanair as a last resorts. Friend tried to down load boarding pass in the morning of flight was not able as need to be done 24hrs before. 50 euro to get printed at airport outrageous. Perhaps you could Justify £10 but 50 euro!! Why do they try so hard to rip there customers off at every turn"
Pros: "Nothing, only good thing was that the girl at the check-in was very nice and felt bad for the situation, then inside the plane after we landed, the manager was very attentive and nice to me, she heard my complaints and made sure I spoke my part."
Cons: "- They charged me 55 GBP for missing the check-in - They didn't let me facture the suitcase even tho I paid for the priority entrance. I had to throw away my liquid bottles. - While boarding one of the flight attendants told me to walk faster because they were late, even though I had two heavy bags in both of my hands. Then he insulted me in Italian and after I asked him 8 times to tell me what he said to me he told me to shut up and sit down. I sat down for 2 hours in a very bad mood trying to control myself from starting a fight. After the flight I waited and spoke with the manager about it, If I'm not wrong the name of the attendant was Luca and the manager heard my complaints. This was the worse flight of my entire life, I have never been treated so disrespectfully in a plane, I felt humiliated. I will never touch a Ryanair plane ever again. I definitely should be getting a refund for this."
Pros: "The prices were ok. I’m short (5,4) so I can’t complain about the leg space. The cabin crew were pleasant, I can’t say the same about al the workers in the airport, ruining your mood before a holiday is slack - especially after"
Cons: "Not all of your staff are polite, I’m not sure if it is because we were in a country that does not accept or respect people of “colour” but I could see that there was definitely a heavy line of different treatment to other races - sadly from a very well known brand. I did feel the luggage prices were slightly tacky, and extra for on cabin prices. Also, cleanliness is clearly not a priority for all either."
Pros: "Very chip flight but expensive tricks about luggage paid my cabin bag but not allowed to check them I will never flight with Ryanair air."
Cons: "Very bad service. Everything is bad"
Pros: "Trip went well easy check in Know problems"
Cons: "The stay was too short would like to have had more time in Copenhagen"
Pros: "boarded the plane to find it looking like there had been a kids party. food all over the seats and floors, rubbish under the seats. pilot was barely competent making a harsh fumbling landing"
Cons: "disgusting plane"
Pros: "Very cheap"
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed for three hours then they gave us a 5eur/£3.50 voucher which we were only allowed to use for pizza and WATER. No other soft drink. The delay was ridiculous. The allowed us to board and be seated for about 15 mins before telling us that there was a problem with the aircraft. DONT YOU CHECK THIS BEFORE PASSENGERS BOARD?! Priority was a waste of money we all got on at the same time anyway. Rubbish service, rubbish airline and my £26 flight turned in £60 easily with all the extras which were a waste of my money."
Pros: "We made the flight!!"
Cons: "Notification of which Gate!! All the steps Down to the tarmac then up the plane steps!!! Priority- didn't seem to mean anything- everybody boarded the same!! The Cabin crew- Rushed announcements!! And worked as I feel robots!! But definitely got Value for Money!!!"
Pros: "They were cooperative with us and gave clear instructions"
Cons: "Delay in the flights both going and returning, poor landing"
Pros: "I couldn’t confirm my flight because I never received an appropriate code to verify my trip. The codes I entered were ineffective. I read I could confirm it upon arrival and after bringing my receipt to the customer service desk, they claimed my flight was not confirmed and I need to pay $40 in Euros. I feel deceived and lied to."
Cons: "I didn’t like concern for customer care and placing blame on travel agency instead of taking responsibility. I had a receipt and someone accepted my money. My contract for a flight was made the moment my money was received!"
Pros: "Friendly crew. And that is it. The plane was poorly constructed inside but managed to land without falling apart. I prefer not to fly Ryan again."
Cons: "They seated us apart because we wouldn’t pay extra. Seats are cheap, uncomfortable, and don’t recline. Baggage policies were ridiculous but weren’t enforced. Very little legroom. We had to walk up the stairs and down on arrival. Apparently a proper gate costs extra."
Cons: "Delayed then not delayed then the crew were late and made no attempt to hurry themselves then wen we boarded we were told we were delayed an hour and 40 minutes so had to sit there on the plane with no1 telling us wats going on or wen we were leaving! No refreshments available while we were waiting really poor from Ryan air I won't be flying with them agen"
Pros: "I got there eventually"
Cons: "4hour delay, disorganised"
Pros: "Spacious seats with leg room"
Cons: "Too much talking over intercom"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"
Pros: "Passengers and crew were nice. The basic price is ok, but many people buy "extras" like "privileged" boarding, and seats next to friends/relatives, so not so cheap overall."
Cons: "I don't understand Ryanair policy on random seat assignment. It delays boarding while passengers negotiate on swapping seats. I guess it's just a cynical ploy to extract more money, like the privileged boarding scam. In Palma, the departure board went from Delayed to Boarding without any announcements. The plane was late arriving and the crew blamed the ground staff. The ground staff were certainly slow coming to the plane at Stansted. I wonder if they are disenchanted with Ryanair too. We will actively avoid Ryanair where possible, and advise others to do so."
Pros: "Cabin baggage management"
Cons: "Hold baggage took over half an hour to arrive. Loot enough seats in gate at airport of departure"
Cons: "Gates announced too late"
Cons: "All flights were cancelled no refund. Ryanair rebooked me without letting me know, and then told me at the airport they could not check me in."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, very late notice given to were stuck and couldnt get out. Bus took us to the plane and were waiting for 20 mins in a bus while the plane was unload with previous passanger, fueled, cleaned etc!!!! Overall got 2h delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, very late notice given to were stuck and couldnt get out. Bus took us to the plane and were waiting for 20 mins in a bus while the plane was unload with previous passanger, fueled, cleaned etc!!!!"
Pros: "Main steward was a nice guy."
Cons: "Delay to get on flight of nearly an hour with no information. Delay getting off flight whilst at gate in London of over an hour after being told 10 minutes. Further 30 minutes even after the delay to get bags. A lot of the delays are the airports fault and not the airline but could do more to communicate with passengers. Also seems like Ryanair are now purposefully splitting people if they don't pay for allocated seats. Always get seats together with easyJet but not Ryanair and you could tell by the splitting of other people there wasn't an attempt to seat together. On the way over I was sat next to the partner of the person my girlfriend was sat next to."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "I paid for extras this time as on my outbound it was a shambles and did not want to go through it"
Cons: "Paid for priority, but there was no priority queue at all, then on the plane we were told yes you just push forward telling people you have Priority? Really? There was signage for normal queue and priority queue but inky the normal queue had staff on so had to join the normal queue. 26£ for what expect a refund"
Cons: "The departure lounge was horrible"
Cons: "Poor customer service specially in Berlin"
Pros: "nothing ..."
Cons: "Queuing for 45 mins at boarding at 21.25 pm which grew to 10.05 pm! no apparent reason for this although we were all given manual luggage tags and then they were checked off again before getting into the plane- the Malaga ground staff could not answer questions as they didn't speak english well enough.. poor. onboard completely overcrowded locals and no help from crew on seating = lots of spare stoats at back.. i.e. space."
Cons: "Make sure to all you need to do is the bag drop at checkin. The lines to see an agent are horrendous."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "All passengers were lined up waiting to Board at the correct gate at leading up to and at the time the flight was supposed to depart at 11.55am. There was no communication on the flight boards and no member of staff from Ryanair or other near the gate. At about 12.30 two members of airport staff turned up and started the boarding process and eventually we got away an hour late at 12.55 still none the wiser about the lack of communication, service and delay. It would take a lot to persuade me to fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Timely departure, relatively smooth check-in"
Cons: "Too much in-flight advertising, no complimentary drinks."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after we landed."
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Cons: "The process is set up to extract exorbitant fees."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Generally the whole experience was very good. I'd use Ryanair again."
Cons: "Acoustics in both the airport and airplane were very poor. I understood almost nothing in French or in English."
Pros: "Availability to change seat if one is open"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "7 hour delay"
Pros: "not crashing"
Cons: "being treated like a dispensable inconvenience at every turn"
Pros: "Nothing. It was all mediocre."
Cons: "You need to serve food or at least water. Airplanes are very dry. It makes you seem like a rip off."
Cons: "For the price was fair"
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"
