Cons: "Courtoisie, respecté les horaires"
Pros: "Ryanair works very well if you follow the instructions. Check in day before departure - Don’t bring too big or too many bags onboard. Pretty perfect flight for us."
Cons: "Fellow passengers not preparing for check in and bringing too much luggage then complaining for 10 minutes while everyone else has to wait. Ryanair only had one check in / bag drop. Should be automated or more staff. Took forever. (Ok 30min and only 3 ppl ahead of me in queue)"

Pros: "It was ok. Nothing more. Crew was helpfull if needed"
Cons: "Kayak... I booked a flight from Eindhoven - Alicante AND return!!! But Kayak only talked about the trip to Alicante..."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly, priority boarding was super speedy and the food was served promptly (to my neighbouring passenger not me)."
Cons: "The seats were dirty and the plane could've done with a clean, plus I ended up with stiff knees because of how squished I was."
Cons: "Every thing was perfect . Thanks"
Cons: "Airplane was very hot when boarding and didn’t cool down till about 20 minutes before landing."
Pros: "Row 2 lots of lw"
Cons: "Boarding process was bananas, plane is old, no organization at check in. It was like a mad max post apocalyptic hellscape. No lines or stantions. Just people pushing, no rules."
Cons: "It was freezing we asked 3 times to have air con adjusted ...plus other passengers ask too . Nothing was done . Stag and hen people on flight... shouldn’t be served alcohol on flight if they seemed drunk already. People wouldn't sit down even with seat belt signs on..."
Pros: "Priority boarding and luggage storage."
Cons: "The crew had no control over rowdy/drunk passengers. A shame as young children present. Not one request to calm down and refrain from shouting and swearing. Very uncomfortable and intimidating flight. Will not fly Ryanair again"
Pros: "Online facilities"
Cons: "The police for handbags"
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "I paid for extra legroom in row 2?There isn't any and to radd insult to injury the person next to me had been allocated his seat without paying any more than the basic fare.I spent most of the flight in a vacant standard seat which gave me more leg room than than that which I had paid for.It was a total ripoff."
Pros: "Queue was long but still boarded quickly,"
Cons: "Providing even simple entertainment for kids e.g. colouring sheets would have helped them cope with the flight."
Pros: "The flights were on time and everything was very organized."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had no other option than flying low-cost. Bought the most expensive ticket I could to be in first row and have enough overhead bin space, but that still did not help the situation of a very disorganized boarding, very uncouth flight attendants, uncomfortable seats, absolutely no free drinks (not even a bottle of water), constant selling of useless things, people using the toilet in the front, obnoxious travelers, and getting yelled at. Also, contrary to what was suggested on the Ryanair web site regarding fast check-in, priority boarding and access to lounges, none of those Flying 200+ legs per year on Star Alliance flights in business and up, I truly hope I never have to take such a horrendous flight again."
Pros: "It was exactly as booked, Got rid of bags quickly, boarded easily(priority) crew were fine I expect. I slept through whole flight. Didn’t have any food and didn’t have any entertainment. Took off and landybsng on time."
Cons: "I’m fed up with that bloody music when they land."
Cons: "The price of checking a bag cost twice as much as the flight...just the process of getting the bag checked was stressful would’ve been better served taking the train"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Check in was mad"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Very noisy people, very drunk people and like in all Ryanair flights, the staff has to keep giving people alcohol, so they were getting even more drunk. Not a good experience when all of them starts standing like in a bar on top of your head and raise the volume of the voice for no reason. Also from the time we landed until the time we were allowed to leave the aircraft, 15 minutes passed. Without anyone telling us for what reason. Very annoying..."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight had group of youngsters who should not have been allowed on flight. They displayed rowdy behaviour and swore and gestures throughout flight. Staff did very little to try and stop them until other passengers started to complain."
Pros: "Someone can tell me why should I que in the check in desk just for a stupid stamp?"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Paying for hand luggage plus the then obligatory and unnecessary early boarding. having to pay to sit next to my children The warm cold drinks"
Cons: "The flight itself, the process to get a boarding pass and the fact we were charged for a boarding pass. Not specified tonprint out ahead of time, no reminder email. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Original price"
Cons: "We were on vacation with our 3 year old and spent almost 5 extra hours in the Budapest airport which ate up most of our day. We were notified of the delay 5 minutes before we checked in and could have caught a cab later in the day and enjoyed our last day in Budapest."
Pros: "You get what you pay for, it's a budget airline everything designed tfor you to pay extra"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "On time no problem"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Initial fare"
Cons: "Because of its wheels, my suitcase wouldn't fit their dimensions for gate check and they charged me 50 euros before boarding. They could have waived the suitcase through or offered to upgrade me to Priority, but they preferred to make an example of a passenger. They make you parade with your suitcase to the front of the line to "prove it." I will not fly on Ryanair again."
Pros: "Enjoyed the lasagna that I ordered, surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Under the circumstances, the staff coped well with certain difficult passengers. Noisy passengers are my pet hate especially when the safety drill is being read out."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delays over and hour after we were loaded in plane. No food or drinks offered for their delay"
Pros: "Liked no pressure sales from crew, but was there if you needed them and helpful very pleasant done their job well, would use again but if alternative carrier might consider them due to comments below."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable due to shiny covering, slide in seats when asleep ended up with bad back during break, just a suggestion being gluten free ( not a lifestyle choice) would suggest this being added to menu might make more sales as lots of us about and makes you feel cared for."
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."
Pros: "It’s nice flying into Alicante where often those awful automatic passport machines give way to mails checks so much faster"
Pros: "Price and punctuality"
Cons: "Families have to pay extra to sit together. Children should automatically be seated with their parents. Basic safeguarding standards should be priority, not making more money out of necessity."
