Airline reviews

"The flight crew was very attentive and nice, but the ground crew sadly wasn’t, the overall experience is I WOULD NOT, again NOT TRAVEL with TAP Portugal… We where supposed to board at 11am and started at 11:40 with minimum to non-coordination…"

Pros: "Nothing, Air Portugal is the worst I have ever experienced. Never fly Air Portugal, you have been warned."
Cons: "A different airline"

Pros: "TAP always has great team members and crew. They are polite, professional and helpful. The flight itself is comfortable and relaxing; very enjoyable."
Cons: "TAP does not check your bags all the way through if you are having a layover. This makes NO SENSE and requires that you retrieve your luggage from baggage claim, and then check in once more and then another trip through security once again! This never happens in the US - one of the few things we get right. Also, I have never had to board a plan from the tarmac since 1970 in the US - why do we have to always wait for and take buses from our check in gate out to the flight line? And how is this ever considered, "Premium Boarding?" It's like a cattle car. Fix these things and I will sing the praises of TAP forever."

Pros: "Nothing! Horrible!"
Cons: "I had small carry on And there were nowhere to put them. The cabin for the carry one were full and my carry on had to be placed somewhere else, and knowing I had personal information in my bag. Very disappointed"

Pros: "Efficient check in and polite crew."

Pros: "Some on crew lovely. Others terrible, bitter people, not at all suited for customer service."
Cons: "Disgusting food. Price gouging for checked baggage. Surly attitudes."

Cons: "Flight to Lisbon late. Missed connection Now have 10 hour delay"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and the light snack provided terrible. No entertainment at all. The A319 is a horrible airplane: rather uncomfortable!"

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster that took an extra 30 min"

Pros: "The flight was fine no problem"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Baggage crew broke both our suitcases. Awful crew who was really rude to me when I was desperate for the toilet as seat belt sign was constantly on. Hot flight with hardly any air con"

Pros: "On time flight, good service"
Cons: "Long wait for deposit luggage . Food could be much better."

Pros: "Better system to boarding."
Cons: "Announce properly for boarding."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A modern airplane properly equipped with padded seats and provisioned with quality food. Charging outlets!!"

Pros: "Crew and on time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."

Pros: "Overhead luggage space"

Pros: "Excellent landing, adequate number of attendents, food served, wide aisles"
Cons: "I would not do Nee as well ll for the twwwo plus hour flight. If the center seat was occupied as there simply was no space for my knees."

Cons: "poor and cheap plane"

Pros: "Clean, modern plane - tightly-packed but comfortable seats. Note: if you travel with a bag with wheels it will be weighed at the gate and those over 8kg will be checked. If you have a heavy bag without wheels, it gets no scrutiny."
Cons: "Odd they didn’t have a terminal gate on their home airport - we were bused from a distant spot on the tarmac to the terminal."

Cons: "TV didn't work. A female attendant made me store my hat but didn't make a male passenger."

Pros: "You can charge your devices (only in one plains from London to Portugal)"
Cons: "Cabin crew were far from welcoming when dealing with the African passengers (including me though I'm Spanish) the food was a disgrace On a 5 hour flight to Accra there was no entrainment, the chairs were incredibly uncomfortable and you could not even charge your devices... The food arrive way too early. I believe the airline has put less of an effort on these planes due to the nature of the passengers... I have been traveling for 20 years and I never felt so disappointed by an airline... I will not use this airline ever again"

Cons: "If you're going to charge for a checked bag on an international flight, it would be nice if you made that clear on the ticket purchase. A tiny link buried in the information section "See baggage information for additional fees that may apply" doesn't make it abundantly clear that you're going to be hit with an $85 charge each way (ultimately $380 for my wife and me round-trip). Sneaky and dishonest!"

Pros: "Good and entertainment options in executive class."
Cons: "Flight departed LIS late due to a couple of passengers. Definetly not the airline’s fault."

Cons: "Delay one hour"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."

Pros: "Flight was only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Food and drink (esp. non-alcoholic) is terrible. Not offering a vegetarian option - even on short haul - is ridiculous in the 21st century."

Cons: "Pilots on strike. Faro to Lisbon flighted delayed. Missed connection to London. 6 hour delay in Lisbon."

Cons: "Nothing meal was fine , flight on time, good experience."

Pros: "Nice food"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, no entertainment"

Cons: "Where to start. No soap to wash your hands in the WC. Air conditioning dripping water to a seat next to us. They run out of on food option we wanted. The flight to Lisbon was delayed. The plain was dirty. One of out seats the entertainment system did not work. We alerted the crew, they did not do anything to remediate these problems. Only bad experience of the trip. Portugal deserves a better airline than this one. Last the best of all, $90 dollars per bag we checked in, so we spent $360 dollars just to carry our luggage."

Pros: "Cabinstaff were friendly and professional"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made this flight"

Pros: "Despite the constant delays, overbookings, and other mediocre treatment of the passengers the crew and TAP personnel remained friendly"
Cons: "Flights constantly delayed, overbooked flight without a solution, overbooked hotel... Arrived at destination (Bru) 24h after arriving at airport in Faro. Will avoid TAP at all costs."

Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "The lack of entertainment"

Pros: "car rental service SIXT"
Cons: "having to check bags that we didn't on the way to Faro was annoying long line at entry (my husband and I used EU) but they made my mom and sister go in the other longer line this time we had to run for connecting flight and my mother is elderly"

Cons: "Baggage fees were unacceptable. All but one of my group of 12 had to pay and we were not told why. It was not clear that this should have been done via the website prior to the flight and why is it significantly cheaper online? Very disappointing."

Pros: "Crew on flight was pleasant and good at updating on progress of flight."
Cons: "TAP has terrible customer service and support. Was told on check-in that flight did not include checked luggage which is bizzare/unreal for an international flight especially since I also paid to upgrade my ticket. Even in explaining to me the person on the phone was rude. This was very disappointing as I had such an amazing trip to end on this sour note."

Pros: "Good pilot and flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay caused my group of 12 to miss transfer to hotel so we are tired and hungry"

Cons: "This airline company was looking like a scam. I was refused the flight. Then promised compensation, which was then refused again. Treated like kettle. Simply corrupt company."

Pros: "Both check ins (to and from Boston) the staff were rude. No information, just alot of speaking Portuguese to other staffers while my family and I stood there. The flight and crew were good, clean, kind and efficient."
Cons: "There was a strike in Lisbon. Thousands of people trying to go through security and four people working the booths. Plus NO information. Just chaos, bad feelings and HOURS of standing in lines. Stressful. Will NEVER go to Lisbon again."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Some delays at the airport but service is excellent."

Pros: "The flight was very quick but pre boarding process was too long.There was no beverage service on the flight."

Pros: "The flights was conducted safely and professionally."
Cons: "Minimal legeoom on the Airbus A319; several inches less than on the next TAP leg to BCN."

Pros: "Complimentary beverages and snacks. Understandable English from the crew about the flight information"

Pros: "The staff and no delays. Checking in , great customer services and she was vey efficient."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seats ."

Pros: "Friendly crew!"

Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."

Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. It hurt my back."

Pros: "Nothing stands out on this flight"
Cons: "No delay, the same reason was used on our flight out. Had to wait for staff to join this flight, surely they would have know the night before. No hand luggage which would save a great deal of time"

Pros: "Finally arriving at London Gatwick."
Cons: "Cabin crew could have been more friendlier and welcoming. The delay of 4 hours was not due to the passengers!"

Pros: "Ease of booking and no fuss boarding"
Cons: "Explanation of what easyJet plus is all about when booking flight"

Cons: "Long delay back sitting around at airport, we got notification of flight being late but told we still had to book in at normal time .Why not the 2 hours before???? Mad"

Cons: "Late boarding"

Pros: "Easy boarding and quick to receive baggage in Gatwick"
Cons: "Late opening of check-in. 2 desks allocated so 2 long queues. 20 mins into check-in the queue I was in changed to priority boarding. This necessary information should have been indicated in advance as 90% of the passengers were in the wrong queue. As for aircrew 1 of the female crew was miserable as sin and unhelpful to most passengers"

Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Seats were changed without notice meaning my girlfriend and I were seated separately even though we were on the same booking - and the crew were less than helpful in resolving this, we had to correct the issue ourselves with another willing passenger. The flight was delayed by an hour and no real explanation or apology was offered. Terrible end to an incredible holiday."

Cons: "Why make you board the plane and then tell you there is a 45 minute delay"

Pros: "Staff were excellent. I felt valued as a passenger. EasyJet seem to try to improve their process continually."
Cons: "Nearly every EasyJet flight I take is delayed. I know this can be beyond their control but I think scheduling is a bit tight. That said they keep you updated often and delay times go down as well as up."

Pros: "Value"
Cons: "Speedy boarding is shambolic"

Pros: "Crew service."

Pros: "Boarding and Crew were excellent"
Cons: "There was no acknowledgement from EasyJet, when i called Customer Service, that there was a strike at the Barcelona airport. After waiting on the security line for 90 mins and concerned we were not going to make our flight, I called to find out what my options. I was greeted by a very rude and unhelpful individual who ended up just hanging up the phone on me after asking if she could help me by telling me my options. Not exactly something I wanted to experience after the frustration of waiting on a line for 90mins."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late and the crew wasn't helpful"

Cons: "Being late on both journeys! With no explanation"

Cons: "Late like usual"

Cons: "Being charged £90 when Inhad to change a typo on my boarding card. When I looked at my bc I saw that there was a typo. In the middle name section I had mis typed my name sstor..I finally worked out how to amends it..I corrected it & the next screen charges me £90.."

Pros: "I have been a fan of Easyjet for years but my last four experiences with them have been poor to say the least. A return flight to Naples earlier in the year and now Palermo shows that their attitude to customer care is slipping badly. All four flights were delayed to a greater or lesser degree. That happens and is usually beyond the control of the airline. What is not beyond their control is the way that they communicate during the delay and the way they treat their passengers. We are people not self-loading freight. Easyjet is fast becoming as bad as British Airways and they are by far the worst. A very frustrating and sad thing to see. The beginning of the end for Easyjet?"
Cons: "Abysmal communications. A don't care attitude. Not my problem syndrome. Treating passengers like cattle."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "It was delayed like the previous flight with easyJet to the holiday destination"

Cons: "Began 'boarding' the plane despite the fact people had not got of plane that had arrived from London. We waiting in corridor thing that leads to plane for over 20 minutes"

Pros: "Customer service was good"
Cons: "Delays both ways, hours waiting, no update throughout the process and if we are even 10 minutes late after staying updated online with the delayed flight times, we get told off satimof weeks can't board the flight."

Pros: "Was meant to be a 21.40 flight that was delayed until midnight"
Cons: "Arrived at gatwick after public transport closed with no assistance offered"

Pros: "Pilot's way of explaining delays & diverted route"
Cons: "FRANTIC at Marseille Airport Easyjet security check area Then after unexplained delays, at gate entrance my hand luggage was refused even though it was organised the same way as my outward journey and that was OK. Aggressive checker said it couldn't have been Easyjet - I don't lie, and my outward journey was Easyjet. Had to repack & so spoilt some contents. We were left standing in gate area for ages without explanation."

Pros: "Crew were really nice"
Cons: "Queue and staff at Nice airport were so poor/slow. Also flight was delayed"

Pros: "The welcome, the staff, everything was FAR better than my last flights with easyJet."
Cons: "New lights, lady behinds light was directly on our sleeping baby's head and we had to hold our hand over his eyes!"

Cons: "Decompression before landing was awful."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Fairly cramped seats, constantly trying to sell me stuff at ridiculous prices"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Overpriced water £1.80 for small bottle rounded up to €2.50 - double ripoff"

Pros: "New laptop ban was notified by email and text, so all ready when I arrived at airport. This is a lowish cost airline and crew were good, but does offer really good value and worth paying a bit more than some of the cheapest out there. Not too much different to BA, but friendlier and better value. Flight was a bit late leaving, but arrived pretty much on time. Food is also pretty good value, high street cafe prices, although the ham and cheese toastie is not recommended. But everything else was fine."
Cons: "Laptop ban is a pain, but not Easyjet's fault."

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: "Crew pleasant and professional. Explained the headwind would add time"
Cons: "No gate number posted at airport just told the flight was boarding!"

Pros: "No issues on outward flight, flight arrived early"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed for an hour and passengers were not informed why there was a delay until the captain mentioned it."

Pros: "Slight delay in boarding which seemed due to ground staff shortage resulting in 30 minute delayed departure, but overall the flight was good - no complaints."

Cons: "Being delayed Not being told anything"

Pros: "Air being recycled"

Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "When boarding, they call out speedy boating holders, they forgot to call out families with children's"

Pros: "Easy boarding--priority boarding"
Cons: "So far to walk"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Full flight. One working bathroom. The seatbelt light stayed on longer than I've ever seen on a flight and I was begging the crew to go to the bathroom. Utterly ridiculous. 200 people and one bathroom. Get it together."

Pros: "Flight was on time, staff good."
Cons: "Would not have wanted to be on the flight any longer as there wasn't much leg room."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "You gave us no support and little guidance when we had to find our way from Gibraltar airport to the coaches waiting to take us to Malaga airport today for our rearranged flight to gatwick. No one was there to show us where the coaches were, the snack was chocolate and crisps, the meal handed to us in Malaga was a ham baguette! So for us who eat healthy, or gluten intolerant, or vegetarian there was no food available all day... So no support, little directions, no real food and no care... Unless I have to I will never choose to fly easyjet again"

Pros: "Crew were lovely, good leg room as somehow got allocated exit row. Toilets nice and clean"
Cons: "One hour late taking off. I checked in carry on luggage when requested " for the greater good" but added time to journey - shouldn't be necessary. Long bus ride from plane to terminal also added time. Everything else ok"

Pros: "Makeing up lost time"
Cons: "Time taken to board"

Cons: "Approx 35 min delay on departure from London. Long waite time on getting off the plane."

Pros: "The cabin crew were very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the flight crew sounded professional and kept us informed of progress. the food was fine and not horrendously priced."
Cons: "the plane was late arriving and the information received on KAYAK and the Easyjet app did not match the information displayed in the terminal (the apps were correct)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything Easyjet is simply a poor company. Flights are late and not cheap, staff attention is very weak"

Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Huge trek to gate. Late - again."

Pros: "Well organised. Pollute efficient staff."
Cons: "One particular member of staff @Gatwick airport who was racist towards non whites."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nothing the flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was cancelled but nobody had the courtesy to tell us. Actually the flight from Southend wasn't cancelled, it took off as planned but everyone who had paid a lot of Money was thrown off to make way for other people. I will never trust easy jet again."

Pros: "No delay Everything was fine"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"

Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."

Cons: "Late, dirty and not properly stocked..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The landing was dangerous and rough."

Pros: "This flight issues were so plentiful they provided me with knowledge on how not to run an airline."
Cons: "5 X delays, Incompetent pilot, No organisation of ground crew 2.5hr late"

Cons: "Booked 3 flights all on Ryanair for a trip inside Portugal. The booking agent, Gotogate.com, and Ryanair left me deserted. Some error occurred and I received the same flight booking # for all 3 the flights. I discovered this when trying to retrieve my boarding pass for the second flight. Neither company fixed the problem and I could not board the flight. I ended up having to rent a car and drive to Porto (6 hours away). Neither company have anyone that can assist with these issues on the weekend. The worst experience I could have had on my birthday vacation."

Cons: "We attempted to cancel our reservations more than a week before our trip because my husband was hospitalized. Not with the flu or a broken arm, but a major and serious life threatening illness we are still dealing with. We provided numerous documents as proof of the absolute dire situation and they denied the request over and over again. I get that the tickets were "non-refundable" but at least offer vouchers, credit, or be totally a stand-up company and refund the tickets. It wasn't buyers remorse, trust me, we would have preferred to be in Portugal, rather than sitting in a hospital hoping and praying for his recovery."

Pros: "You get what you pay for. No issues"
Cons: "The queue on the tarmac waiting to board but I realise they are trying to keep to schedule"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were all friendly and welcoming"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."

Pros: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"

Pros: "Boarded from gate beside the executive lounge."

Cons: "Ground staff made final boarding call too soon. Had to rush from the lounge only to find no passengers had left the terminal steps to walk to the plane to board."

Cons: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"

Pros: "It got me home"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, seats not together unless you pay, uncomfortable seats, park up in poor location meaning you have to go up and down steps. Not good with push chair"

Cons: "Very long walk on landing"

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Not alot,crew was pleasent and staff in London were lovely"
Cons: "Small seats, uncomfortable,over priced drinks and food terrible landing.delayed"

Pros: "The flight boarding was delayed by 45 mins originally, which was added 15 mins onto then half an hour when we were then we were all very badly moved to another area when I say very badly, we were given poor instructions and me and some other passengers almost ended up on the wring flight. After we finally got to where we were supposed to be half hour was said that came and gone then another 15 mins when we were moved back to boarding area. Another half hour finally got boarded then and after this was the usual great Ryanair experience."
Cons: "The flight boarding was delayed by 45 mins originally, which was added 15 mins onto then half an hour when we were then we were all very badly moved to another area when I say very badly, we were given poor instructions and me and some other passengers almost ended up on the wring flight. After we finally got to where we were supposed to be half hour was said that came and gone then another 15 mins when we were moved back to boarding area. Another half hour finally got boarded"

Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."

Pros: "Seat ok"
Cons: "Delay with no information.this is an airline that although cheap has no interest in customers"

Cons: "From Bournemouth to Faro and Family,when do you start again? Sincerely. J. Tavares"

Pros: "The helpful, friendly, happy crew. The fact you get a choice of food and the crew are not run off their feet serving everyone food that is included in the flight price. Very efficient shuttle bus service between airport and destinations, again with helpful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Cramped seating. High cost of booking hold luggage."

Pros: "Prompt take-off, good in-flight service, landed 30 minutes early."

Cons: "Flight was very late.(over 2 hours) Notices not posted timeously No meal tokens offered, or anything else to soften the irritation Boarding and offloading by stairs into the rain - cheapest possible options."

Cons: "Sitting 10 rows from my wife"

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?"

Cons: "My wife and I was split up and ended up in middle seats of different rows and neither of us had people to either side of us. This is Ryanair trying to get you to pay for guaranteed seating the next time you travel. Ridiculous!!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The customer service agent was horribly rude. When asked her name, because she wasn't wearing a name tag, she said "Oh, you'd like my name? I'll be sure to write it down for you." I never ended up getting her name, but the way she treated me and my fiancé - as two customers that were very much over paying - was inappropriate and unprofessional. Never again will I fly RyanAir."

Pros: "Crew were polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours. There was no announcement that there was a delay or explanation.. The Priority boarding is very poorly organised . when we were finally let out onto the tarmac there was a mad scramble by the non priority customers to get to the plane although the one lady in charge did control things to a degree I might add that at Gatwick going to Belfast the Priority boarding was a joke. If you are going to make customers queue in the corridor please put a sign up outside to indicate the you dont't have to queue"

Pros: "Most of the crew were hard working, pleasant and the flight came in slightly early"
Cons: "There was a cabin services director (or whatever his title was) who clearly liked the sound of his own voice. He kept going on and on about how bad the weather was in London and how sunny it was in Portugal. He mentioned rain and snow in London and suggested that people booked a return flight to Portugal in the twenty-five minutes available to them in London after the plane had landed. One joke about the sun versus the rain might have been acceptable but to raise it again ad again just became irritating and an abuse of the PA system. He shouted Halleluja amongst other things when trying to get money out of people for the Ryanair charity. If he wants to be a professional comedian he should change his profession as he was just annoying people and he stopped the flight from being relaxing,"

Cons: "We have never flown Ryan Air before and are not from Europe. We booked or flight one day prior to the flight and were shocked to show up at the airport and pay 90 euro to check in at the airport. This is simply a price gouge. I understand a small, nominal fee for this but not 90 euro! That is asinine. I will purposely avoid Ryan Air in the future as this leaves a bad taste in my mouth."

Cons: "Flight delayed by 7 hours"

Cons: "I was told next time I have to be careful with my carry-on because I'd have to pay £50 otherwise. However, my carry-on is TSA approved, it has a lot of pockets so it may appear to be a bit bigger but I don't overstuff and I've had no issue getting my bag into the overhead bin. Granted, the officer was kind when she said it, but I also measured my bag and weighed it before my flight and I shouldn't feel there should be an issue with my bag. On my return flight I had souvenirs in my bag (meaning more in my SAME bag) and no one said a word about my carry-on."

Cons: "In order to ride the plane, I have to walk outside. It is very cold."

Pros: "The price was fantastic! the best around :)"
Cons: "There was no notification from cabin crew to advise us to ensure we collect our luggage BEFORE we go through the glass doors at Gatwick. We were expecting to show our passport and collect our luggage from the carrousel but didn't realise until after we went through the glass doors and had to wait over 40 mins for it to be brought to us. What was so astonishing- we were told we weren't the only ones this happened to. It would be very useful if cabin crew made the passengers aware of this to avoid it happening time after time with others/flights"

Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"

Pros: "Price - boarding was good, especially considering plane was full."
Cons: "Punctuality - about 40 mins late both ways - I kinda factor that in now!!"

Pros: "Speed of boarding"
Cons: "Ran out of tea and coffee after first 3-4 rows so most of us had none."

Pros: "Used rynair few times now easy to book great value"
Cons: "Cant say there was anything negative ."

Pros: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."

Cons: "Ryan air staff attitude and lack of efficiency."

Pros: "Cheap, quick, and safe flight."
Cons: "Because the tickets are so cheap, they try to get money out of you at every turn! They charged us $20 each to print our boarding passes at the airport (it wasn't enough to have them on our phones)! They make you pay to check a bag and you have to arrange it ahead of time (cannot ask to do it at the airport). They made a big fuss about the sizes of our bags and threatened to charge up to $55 per bag if they needed to check them at the gate! They have tiny compartments at the gate but our bags fit without any issues on the plane itself."

Pros: "boarding was on time and no delays on the tarmac"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They will hit you for more money every chance they get. Checked baggage. Not printing boarding pass prior to getting to the airport."

Pros: "On time, good crew, seats that don't recline. Taking my carry on luggage at check in.boarding passes on my iPhone and free check in 7 days before your flight unlike monarch where it's is 1 day. Definitely use again."
Cons: "The Plane needed a good clean, floor littered with Rubbish. The queue to board which was created at least 15 minutes before we could actually board.I realise this is to ensure a quick turnaround but in a hot country waiting in the heat is uncomfortable."

Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was quick."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks. But I expected that so it was fine."

Cons: "Checked our party (two adults and three kids with backpacks) of 5's hand luggage, letting most other single travelers get onboard with hand luggage. What is the point, if you choose not to travel with checked bags and at the gate they still check hand luggage?"
