Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Cons: "When you book BA and end up with Iberia, that’s definitely not what you want..."
Cons: "Crew wouldn't let me board because a ticket from Spain to France was not sufficient evidence I would leave Europe. So I bought one from Italy to Singapore and they didn't accept that either. I lost over 1,000 dollars."
Cons: "The people working on the land side lack of a complete sense of service. They are rude, unrespectful and with no professionalism. It is a shame that the last impression you get from Israel is the aggressiveness."

Cons: "If the plane had some wifi, better food,"
Cons: "Awful awful baggage collection in Madrid - longer than. One hour"

Cons: "The airplane was super uncomfortable and it was a long flight. I’ve flown with Iberia to Europe in the past and this was my worst experience in terms of comfort."
Pros: "Delay of 1 hour, but flight was good!"

Pros: "Iberia is awesome, they are so nice and accomodating, I appreciate the time that they spent making me feel comfortable. The food was awesome!"
Cons: "Why you have to charge for the bags ?"
Cons: "IBERIA crew lacks manners & are simply not pleasant. Plane was delayed 2 hrs & crew only told publicly what the problem was about 30 mins after original departure time. Food has been reduced & of less quality. Entertainment system wasn't working & crew didn't seem to understand it's their problem to fix it. It finally worked 3 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "We booked flights with more than 75 mins connection time in Madrid but then the airline changed their schedule which reduced our connection to less than 55 mins. I was traveling alone with my 5 & 7 year old and we had to run non-stop from our 1st domestic flight to the international one, changing terminals, passing passport control (huge lines), and another security. No help from Iberia at all in terms of providing any assistance like a shuttle bus, quick passage thru passport or security. And they were nonchalant in terms of “if you miss your connecting flight, it’s your problem...”. Come on, we paid $4,500 for 3 tickets, and deserve better customer service than this, specially when you changed the flight schedule for your operational reasons!"
Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"
Pros: "The Iberia crew person named Ms. TENORIO was excellent. As an American with disabilities, I felt safe, protected and assisted throughout the flight with my various requests and needs. The rest of the crew was also .efficient and pleasant. Finnair&Iberia are tops."
Cons: "Logan Airport in Boston, Terminal E was so upsetting. There was NOBODY to help me. I arrived early because I am disabled. There should be somebody there at all times. Very distressing-=- me in a wheel chaiir with 2 suitcases and ZERO assistance. I felt helpless and sad."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Did not have any leg room. Could not get my knees and legs into the seat area."
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty good. Touch screens work great, and you can charge your phone. The plane itself is fairly up-to-date, and the headrest is adjustable and very comfortable."
Cons: "I am 6' / 183cm and 210lbs / 95 kg. The seats are quite narrow, and little legroom. I don't think I'll fly them again."
Pros: "Staff was very nice There was a medical emergency that deleted our deplaning Passagers were concered regarding their connection The medical staff was still on board when we deplayed"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on line Had difficulty in getting a contact phone who dismissed my concerns Just said show up two hours before Good thing I went earlier since Ben Gurion has long lines for security before one gets to the ticket counter"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go, on time. Reasonably comfortable."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that we were charged 75 euros because our bags were .5 kilos over weight. The lady put the bags through before giving us the cost and the option to move things around into our carry on bags. That was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Fast boarding, excellent entertainment, crew were friendly and helpful. Arrived 45 min early, which made the drive to downtown easy."
Cons: "Check in online was useless, still had to stand in line to check luggage. Food was ok, kind of mushy chicken, cold bread, and minuscule salad. Breakfast was a sad cold and dry ham and cheese croissant."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft was really hot, I was sweating in my seat... I did not receive any complementary drinks or snacks."
Pros: "Take-off and landing was timely."
Cons: "Really disappointed with a lack of service. On the 8 hour flight we had one meal service within an hour of take-off and one within an hour of landing.

Cons: "it was perfect"

Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Pros: "Madrid airport is seriously beautiful Flight departed on time Seats was lie flat and comfortable Food was best of any European business class"

Cons: "Wasn't able to board in Munich still stuck their ... They wouldn't work with me to either give a refund full or partial and weren't able to give me a credit to rebook at a later date ... I was unable to board due to an error on my green card that I was unaware of ... Iberia says I is considered a no show and wouldn't budge ... Once I'm able to reschedule my flight I will be looking at other airlines"
Pros: "Kind staff"
Cons: "Cushioning on seats worn out - getting uncomfortable. Slightly confusing on who was boarding when; crowd was blocking entry. The path to the plane was not covered, despite the rain and the suitcase had to be left on a cart without cover - I ended up with wet clothing in my suitcase."
Cons: "Delayed flight, once on board the aircraft, further delays on the ground (at Glasgow) made up time in the air landed (not too far from our original landing time) only to be told we’re now being held on the ground (at Gatwick for at least another 20 minutes!) I flew with BA this morning and rated them excellent for everything! EJ you need to up your game!"
Pros: "Standard seat. Crew engaging and entertaining without compromising safety or comfort"

Pros: "quick check in information given in good time regular messages about potential disruption friendly staff"
Cons: "some times cabin staff were a bit too business-like al few people skills would be good"

Pros: "Staff courteous and helpful, information mostly good including on delays. Food and drink options on flight mostly good though additional cost. Plane clean and comfortable enough for a 3hr flight."
Cons: "Random seat allocation without additional payment, Split airport is small and cramped with lots of people sitting / lying on the floor due to lack of seats - they appear to be building a new terminal to upgrade this. Food / beverage options at Split poor with large queues and low quality. Flight delayed circa half an hour. Person behind me kept putting knee in my back whilst talking loudly to neighbours despite me asking him to refrain... Split airport process of bag drop then security then passport control did lead to repeated queueing though not for a huge amount of time. Suggests the systems are not quite as high tech as other airports. No entertainment applicable to this flight."
Pros: "A standard good Easy Jet experience"
Cons: "We (along with everyone) had to check luggage (at no charge), despite being first in line (regular queue) and despite the fact that there was plenty of room in the overhead lockers (and would have sped up boarding considerably)."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Long lines, long delay, non comfortable seats, no entertainment"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Cons: "When I booked this I didn't see an opportunity to pay for our bags on the Kayak booking site When I checked in the charge was about $60.00 for each of 4 bags .... more than half of the ticket costs. I don't think I'll use Kayak again if they are not clear regarding paying for bags ahead and saving. It may have been my oversight but I'm both poorer and wiser. Easyjet seems to thrive on the baggage charges.... it's not comparing apples and apples when Kayak gives prices if the baggage charges are hidden. I would like Kayak to change it's program or provide an option so that any baggage charges are calculated in the "up front" cost quote so that airlines are compared "apples to apples"."
Cons: "More than 60 min delay!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight was smooth, captain kept us updated throughout the flight, cabin crew was friendly and polite."
Pros: "I cancelled the flight 30 mins after the booking"
Cons: "That the search engine changed the date i wanted to fly as there were no flights on the 28 Dec. So I cancelled my flight. I had problems with the easyjet cancellation process online. It wouldnt let me in! So I had to do it over the phone. The proccess was very stressful"
Pros: "Being able to check in two weeks in advance and get assigned seats is fantastic."
Pros: "It was obvious that we had a excellent pilot ( captain) from very nice take off to a very present landing and well on time. Well done Easy Jet. I will definitely book with you again."
Cons: "Very unpleasant person sitting next to us however that was not Easy Jets fault."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great but it was reasonably priced to not the end of the world"
Pros: "Plane was OK for a low cost"
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that despite carrrying a luggage that fit the specs I was forced to check it because the overhead space was full. When I boarded I realized that there was plenty of space. In fact on the space over our heads (row14) there was space throughout the flight"
Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."
Pros: "The hot tea"
Cons: "The noisy children they were not controlled by there perants"
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."
Cons: "After the landing we had to wait a long time in the plain. the announcement was that due to how the suitcases where loaded into the plain if all people will get off the plain might tip."
Pros: "Flight was on time and bags came out quickly"
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: "How helpful and accommodating all the staff were to me, I needed assistance and this was given with a genuine smile!"
Cons: "The food on board was not up to par"
Pros: "Cheap fare. Friendly crew. Don't book a budget flight and expect First Class facilities."
Cons: "I'm 6'3", so found the seats a little cramped. Bearable for the 2 hour flight from London to Murcia. I wouldn't want to go much further in those seats. Food and drink onboard is ridiculously overpriced."
Pros: "Great at moving lots of people everyday so the whole transportation part is honed experience of getting people on and off aircraft efficiently to keep busy schedules on time."
Cons: "Walking off the plane onto a bus and waiting. Only getting our baby stroller back at baggage claim meaning someone has to carry the baby on top of hand luggage. Other airlines have the stroller available as you get out of the plane."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Pros: "Was it a new plane? Seemed to be quite roomy for an Easyjet flight. Very quick security at Luton!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed really staggered instead of free flowing.like other flights, that is, a few people for on, it looked like it.was going to be a quiet flight, then a few more people for on, then heaps of people got on really late, so then there were problems with overhead space and people couldn't get past one another in the aisle... It was a bit of a shambles. Very slow passport control in Stockholm."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Cons: "extra charge for luggage 47€!! At checkin I as first told to pay 18€ for a different seat which includes luggage and then I had to pay 47€ because the bag was 2 cm more than hand luggage limit! never again cheap airlines! they are only a hazzle!"
Pros: "The Easy Jet staff was great and very upbeat. It felt like they were actually excited to be doing their job, unlike some other airlines. The plane was very comfortable and the flight was smooth."
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely and accommodating. Very friendly, they would make a point to speak to everyone. The actual flight was great."
Cons: "One of the worst check-ins I have witnessed. My name is Tania and I do travel on a weekly basis due to my job. This is the worst, rudest check in crew I have ever seen. The communication with your customers should always be pleasant and polite, not arrogant and, quite frankly, dismissive. As it happens with many flights, a lot of travelers are not familiar with the "one bag" easyjet policy. I did not have the issue as I am quite familiar and make a point to put my tiny hand bag inside my carry on. I did witness the uncourteous way the boarding crew explained or shall I say, unexplained the policy. As it was a rather full flight, most of us that boarded pat had to check in our bags as we board the flight. The boarding crew did not bother to let us know that it was a full flight and unfortunately we had to check in out bags, but rather ignored us, put the checkin tag on our bags while avoiding eye contact. I had to literally bend over to search for the boarding crew 's eyes to confirm I had to check in my luggages as she refused to even listen to my question. She rudely responded that yes, your bag in going down. Now, as I said, I am a frequent traveler, and I understand the stress of the flight running late, the ocerbookings, the cancellations and the less amiable travelers (I have seen my share or indecent people who have no decor what so ever). However, in this case your boarding crew did nothing to communicate properly to their customers, your customers! Being rude, unfriendly and unnacommodating is simply unacceptable when it comes to customer service. I normally don't write reviews, but the behavior was so outraging that I cannot be a quite passenger... not this time."
Pros: "Generally smooth check-in process, easy to get through airport and security, and boarding was painless."
Cons: "Disembarking required a bus to the main terminal - crowded and late"
Cons: "Only one piece of luggege was taken too far - your crew did not allow people to carry their purse to the cabin. I had to put my purse in my carry on and go through the flight without very necessary things for my comfort. Needless to say I could not buy anything (food, duty free) on the plain... Very annoying experience!!!"
Pros: "Flight empty, crew good."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew excellent, especially as they dealt with delay due to earlier medical event"
Cons: "Not really. Although pushback delayed, arrival was 10 minutes early"
Cons: "Courtoisie, respecté les horaires"
Cons: "Not waiting in the cold for 15minutes before boarding the plane"
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: "Not to fly with Ryan air which I won’t be!"
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: "Nothing, DO NOT flybw this airline"
Cons: "They charged me 220 pounds at the counter for boarding passes"
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: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Check in was mad"
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed missed my last connecting train"
Pros: "Quick easy and cheap"
Pros: "Got there on time"
Cons: "It's Ryanair - a thoroughly unlikeable airline."
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"
Pros: "The flight arrived without crashing. 100% survival rate."
Cons: "Cattle call. Couldn’t check in early. No gate announcement until 15 minutes before boarding closed, so had to wait in central area then rush to gate. No policing of unruly gate area. Seated in middle seat that didn’t recline. Had to check in via app prearrival at airport to avoid £55 fee per person. Basically the UK version of Spirit Airlines, but worse."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Delayed Limited information/explanation provided Ground staff rude"
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Pros: "You get what you pay for, it's a budget airline everything designed tfor you to pay extra"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "The cabin bag fiasco"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "We were charged almost 200 euros extra because we did not check in online (which we could not do because we had been traveling for 30 hours and did not have Wi-Fi in the air) and when we went to check in the receptionist was rude about the fact that we had not checked in, so we had to go across to a different counter to pay our fee, go back to check in at the first counter, and then was told we could not be seated together, when it turned out the flight was half empty. Besides all of this, the planes are not nice, you are only allowed one carry on (no personal item) and the seats are not comfortable. I thought we would save money but check in fees and ridiculous baggage fees made this flight cost more than a nicer airline."
Cons: "From now on I will pay a little bit more money to have a more comfortable flight. The aircraft Ryanair is employing is easily a couple decades old, and is incredibly cramped. The whole aircraft felt rickety as it rocketed through the sky. Our flight boarded an hour late (not the fault of the airline) and when we got on the plane the crew members hardly smiled and were very grumpy. That's the last time I try to save a quick buck on a cheaper airline."
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."
Pros: "all airline staff caring and helpful"
Cons: "Bumpy Landing! Very expensive for a very basic service"
Cons: "Birmingham airport is awful the facilities the infrastructure the waiting the queues for security 0/10"
Cons: "Everything wasnt fully compensated and when zi asked for help refused to speak to me"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours, Ryanair lied to us the entire time"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delayed again!"
Pros: "Once boarding began, it was efficient. Service was polite and efficient."
Cons: "Narrow seats, poor selection of drinks and food."
Cons: "Flights ended up being close to or more expensive because of baggage charges. Also, the length of the terminal to board downstairs off the tarmac is ridiculous for an older couple such as we are. The only good thing was (a) a polite airport employee who got us a wheelchair; (b) a second boarding door for rear section seats."
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Went to checkin desk and told to straight to security. Walked to the other end of the airport only to discover our preprinted boarding passes would read at security. Had to lug all our bags back to the Ryan desk, wait in a long line, and get new boarding passes. Then lug our bags back across the airport to security and FINALLY the gate. Don't assume your print at home boarding passes will work."
Cons: "We were stuck on the ground for an hour. Not impressed."
Pros: "everything on this flight went like clockwork the flight left on time and the crew onboard were really helpful and pleasant"
Pros: "no redeeming quality"
Cons: "the accommodations, seats, personnel, ticketing, take off, landing, lack of courtesy, lack of amenity, lack of charm, lack of class, lack of professionalism"
Pros: "Flight went to plan, no problems boarding and on time."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "The fact that it got me to Dublin."
Cons: "After having all my liquids taken at security from my carry-on (which had been just fine on all other legs of my trip over) Ryanair decides that they are too full for me to take my bag on board, so they made me check it. When I requested that I get the bag back at the gate, they said no. It had to be checked through to baggage claim. This meant that in Dublin I had to go back to get my bag downstairs and go through security twice more. Exactly what I wanted to avoid. I had a very tight connection to the US. It was horrible! I purposely packed light for a 16 day trip!! It would've been helpful if they had let me gate check it. I won't fly them again."
