Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

Pros: "Reclinable seats."

Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Cons: "Didn’t happen."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Free wee cake."

Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Cons: "Opodo messed up my booking. I reached the airport only to find out that the booking was cancelled by Opodo though I received an email from Opodo 24 hours before advising me to check in on the flight. As I was busy with some construction work at home I thought I would check in at the airport. Opodo advisors were not helpful on the phone and I ended up missing a family get together due to their incompatibility."
Cons: "Late - again!"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour. Gate changed twice without announcement"
Pros: "Quick, on time, professional."
Cons: "Shuttle transfers... I prefer direct to plane boarding."
Pros: "Crew, plane was very comfortable, meals good and generous, luggage easy, on time. Overall, outstanding"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Rude flight personnel. We werent assigned seats by each other when we have a four year old. Personnel was rude when addressing the issue. Very rude flight attendent as well. Flights were not child friendly in regards to beverages. No apple juice or milk. We will never fly Air Lingus again."
Pros: "I was able to sleep the whole way!"
Pros: "The first plane left without us, so I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport late because our first plane arrived at the airport late, then we were held up because of poor weather. When we arrived at the Dublin airport, we had to run the gauntlet, only to be told our plane had already left- a few minutes early - thanks a lot. I wanted a drink on the plane and had to pay for it- I’ve always had free drinks before."
Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"
Cons: "Delayed for 8 hrs. Had to go through passport control twice. Horrible service"
Pros: "Quick, short"
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "Small plane, boarded efficiently and quickly. Friendly crew."
Pros: "I got from point a to point b just fine"
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, the boarding process could be more organized, nothing complementary."
Cons: "The entire crew needs to be a little attentive to their passengers you could visually see when they needed to assist a guest it was a bother to them."
Cons: "Still have not received a credit they owe me."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "I am 6ft 2ins. and the legroom was awful. My knee still hurts. The staff was not very friendly. It’s amazing that flight attendants don’t realize that they work for the passengers and not vice versa."
Pros: "The Crew was lovely on the Transatlantic flight. The Dublin-HH crew was polite, one older lady was warm. Of course I would have like free wine, but I imagine many passengers might abuse the offer..."
Cons: "Narrow seats, not spacy feet place (fortunately a nice gentleman in the middle of us, 2 people, found a seat with more space - he was a very long and not too skinny man. Only 3 toilets for both isles of passengers on a TRANSATLANTIC flight."
Pros: "everything was fine"
Pros: "Average economy for a 90 minute flight. Crew were cheerful."
Cons: "They don't have a free drink service like most European airlines."
Pros: "I didn't like anything!!"
Cons: "I bought a BA flight because I am oneworld premium member. However, I learnt the flight was operated by Aer Lingus after I bought the ticket and I had no benefits."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hour is barely enough for going to U.S. because U.S. pre-custom clearance takes a long time. This should be taken into consideration when the airline provides this flight option. When we get boarding pass for the second leg, Dublin to LAX, the way seats are assigned doesn't make any sense. I was assigned to row 12 but my husband was assigned to row 36. We checked in together. When we got on board, there were plenty of seats available, so it did not make sense that we were not assigned together."
Cons: "Screen inop boarding terrible"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed by 30 minutes"
Pros: "The Dublin to Manchester leg of the flight was far friendlier. Food was bad. No service to speak of on transatlantic potion. Couldn’t even get a refill on coffee after one tiny cup at breakfast."
Cons: "The aircraft was very cold."
Cons: "Spilled a coke on me due to person in front of me recling his seat. Flight attendant asked if i was ok. Told her no. She waited on three more people before offering 2 napkin. Not sure what I was supposed to with those other than wipe the residue from the tray as it was now all soaked into my jeans"
Cons: "The aircraft was too old and poorly kept."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff with excellent humour, and an efficiently short flight time."
Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"
Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "There were absolutely no vegetarian meals. All flights should at least have a few extra just in case someone needs some. After I refused the meal, I didn't even get water or anything. I was given a nauseating wrap with tea towards the end of the flight. I'm not even sure how that was expected to be edible. Unbelievable, I will not be flying Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "The opening of a rear exit door. Using the stairs and then walking across the tarmac to get to the terminal is much better than wasting a lot of time waiting to use the jetway."
Cons: "no real problems."
Cons: "The map feature in the entertainment console didn't work."
Cons: "Late service, poor communication leading to events that left me angry and frustrated and left my friend in tears. I won't be flying British Airways ever again if humanly possible."
Pros: "Boarding was faster."
Cons: "No free drinks. Tight on legroom"
Cons: "Small seats but overall a comfortable quick flight"
Pros: "On time and very comfortable."
Pros: "bia preorder meal was fantastic. Problem is that on 11 hour flight, you need at least 2 meals"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment selection. Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "So many unnecessary announcements. Repeated staff on board introducing pilot and crew members twice a well hour into a red eye flight. Lights were left on for far too many hours for a flight where most are sleeping. and they were extremely bright for the window seat. airlingus made it extremely difficult to get some shut eye."
Pros: "Having two seats together but separate from the others. The departure time and connection to Edinburgh were also convenient."
Cons: "As with most other airlines, I don't like not having a direct flight from Boston to Edinburgh."
Pros: "I love your airline. First trip with you this week. Clean spacious planes. Friendly and caring staff... noticed great things watching crew help others. Great entertainment options and quality. Food was tasty! Looking forward to my next trip with you."
Cons: "All great!"
Cons: "There wasn't any food choices for people who are vegetarian. Needed more soft drink options and a lot more blankets to go around."
Pros: "Some of the flight crew."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew. The arm rests don't go all the way up which makes it really hard when traveling with a toddler. This was the case on the short flight and the longer flight to LAX. Not a fan of the food. Most of the crew seemed preoccupied and grumpy."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was very good. lots of choices."
Cons: "slow check-in terrible, website was down so no on-line check in, stuck in a window seat. seats in main cabin are too small. too many chiefs and not enough indians... check in at CDG was a joke, terrible service!"
Cons: "11 hours in Heathrow. I will use another airline just to avoid Heathrow next time. You chnged my itinerary putting me there for 11 hours. This was not my choice"
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: "Very kind and helpful crew"
Cons: "Boarding process with a wheel chair passenger should be better organized"
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Once on board, we were told there was going to be a 30 minute delay. It was hot as balls on the plane."
Cons: "Plane delayed and overbooked"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. All smiles"
Cons: "We give our tickets to board and they tell us we have to put our purse backpack in our suitcase. Why? Really we are boarding. Of course it didn’t fit so we are charged 60 euros!! Per bag !! There are five of us so 300 euros. It’s no better than extortion. Then we pay and give our tickets and wait."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "It was one of the best flights ive been on and would recommend easyjet."
Cons: "3 hours late and very little information. No refreshments provided."
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"
Cons: "Excellent flight, only issue was flight information from Captain was spoken too fast and it was hard to understand what was said...please ask them to slow down their speech on the in flight announcements, cabin staff were fine"
Pros: "In résumé everything is cool. Thx"
Cons: "The land"
Pros: "The flight was on time and everything was o.k. I had no high expectations as it was a cheap flight"
Pros: "On time and boarding witoutvchas"
Pros: "Flight took off slightly late but landed at PMI roughly on time. I had the worst seat on the aircraft according to seat guru 31D which is the last row by the back door. But being the NEO 320 the seat was extremely comfortable and for someone who doesn't sleep on flights I nearly nodded off a few times. Knee room was ok but overall the seat was very comfortable and I could have easily spent a few more hours in that seat."
Cons: "Only problem was that the service trolley started at the front of the plane and it took a fair amount of time before it reached the last row, and being a fairly short flight by the time we finished our drinks the seat belt lights came on for landing."
Pros: "Scheduled to depart at 19.50, left at 01.50 and arrived in Barcelona at 5am."
Cons: "40 min departure delay due to Stanstead airport unable to allocate the usual landing slot before we left Glasgow."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 minutes"
Cons: "Delayed, limited food menu"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Long lines, long delay, non comfortable seats, no entertainment"
Pros: "Quick flight, great take off and smooth landing"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Pros: "It's easyjet so no expectations really"
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: "Quick boarding, quick departure, quick landing. Polite flight crew and efficient service."
Cons: "no complimentary drinks, or small snacks. everything has a price. I'm used to airlines in the US where that kind of service comes with your ticket and the airline does not put a price on every little thing."
Pros: "Had a good flight that was on time, can't complain."
Pros: "good crew, easy flight, on-time"
Pros: "Everything was fine for a 1-hour flight. Sure, there isn't a lot of room, no entertainment, and no refreshments included (like water) but it's pretty standard for budget airlines. Boarding and unboarding were quick enough."
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: "It was good"
Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."
Cons: "Long wait time for luggage to appear on carousel"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the wide aisle was a bonus! I liked the magazine a lot. Overall it was an average flying experience, no problems."
Cons: "I didn't love taking a bus to and from the plane but maybe that is fairly standard in Europe. I wish there was wifi/USB plug on the plane or at least tvs. I didn't have any food or see any entertainment offered so I cannot speak to that! I am unclear on the baggage allowances for this airline and it seemed to be dependent on the employee you happened upon, but everyone was nice and professional."
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: "Leg space was better than most. Crew was very very nice and professional. The pilots spoke very clearly/"
Cons: "It was late, no one will pay us back for our bus. Luton airport is horrible at night, nobody knew how to help us get to London and the area is not friendly. It was late again on the way back, no explanations why. After boarding, we were put in a room with no w/c for approx. an hour waiting for the plane, no clear reason why."
Cons: "It was late by over an hour and their baggage fees aren't clear, each checked bag is $45 euro."
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: "Days were comfortable and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The airport in Dubrovnik is sheer chaos! The Easy Jet people were pleasant and helpful. It would have been nice to have limited free drinks."
Pros: "price of flight was very good"
Cons: "Carry on baggage policy restrictions for non-members. High price of checking carry on baggage at airport. Only one person at customer service window who also served as cashier. We could not pay your fees at check-in counter although we already stood in line once."
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: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Pathetic website. Charges for everything other airlines provide upfront. Unable to reach their customer service call center or chat room which were always unavailable. I will not fly with their f**ked up service again."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and went well."
Cons: "At the check-in gate we paid for our two roller bags, got our boarding passes and gate assignment. When it was near time to start boarding and there was still no Easy Jet staff there we, investigated and found there was a different gate assignment. As we handed in our boarding passes to get on the plane, my wife was told she could only bring one piece on board. We each had a daypack on our backs and she was carrying a satchel. It's too bad for us the initial check in person didn't inform my wife she couldn't carry both her pack and satchel onboard because the extra cost was 12 Euro more than it would have been had we paid for it an hour earlier at check-in. And of course you're stuck paying the extra because there's no way to run back and check it in and still catch the plane."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Cons: "Delayed and over-zealous ex-RAF types on security"
Pros: "The check-in/security was very efficient and pain free especially at Gatwick. The return leg flight was delayed, but time was made up and information was good."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly. We arrived 5min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The new seats are smaller and narrower. Flight arrives very late at Southend airport which leaves just 15min to catch the last train to Liverpool Street (doable if you are very fast and sitting next to the exit, otherwise taxi would be about £100!)"
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was canceled the information about the new flight was poor"
Pros: "Actual flight good once we got going"
Cons: "Delayed departure by two hours"
Cons: "Lead turblence"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient as was disembarking, crew were good"
Pros: "The overall price"
Cons: "Waiting in line for boarding to find out the passengers in the plane that had arrived had not disembarked. Passengers (and not just priority) brought more than one bag onto the plane. The overhead stowage was bulging. As a passenger with a foot cast the disembarkation was not the best"
Pros: "Very helpful as I required assistance"
Pros: "Crew were good. Boarding seemed to be good. When we eventually got going the flight was good and very quick (35mins)"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for 1 hour without moving anywhere as there was a discrepancy with the numbers they thought they had and the list (or something). When we were cleared for take off we then had to get in a massive queue before we could leave."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable & flight was good"
Cons: "The airport boarding process was a bit of a faff had to pass through 3 separate check points for passport before being allowed to board, the priority boarding thing is also not worth it.."
Pros: "All but one crew member where excellent. But the one girl. Made it perfectly clear that the passengers where an annoying part of her job not a pleasure. She had a sour face on her all flight. Everyone was talking about her."
Cons: "Seating is always uncomfortable on these short haul flights."
Cons: "Not to fly with Ryan air which I won’t be!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Being a bit late. Unusual for Ryanair"
Pros: "Fast. That's about it really."
Cons: "More leg room and more comfortable seats also would be nice if the food wasn't extortionate"
Pros: "As good as it can be with Ryanair"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Reasonable price. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Priority boarding didn't really work."
Pros: "The flight was quick, customer service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Checking in online was a nightmare as the site kept freezing, there was a mix up with my priority and cabin baggage, I was told by the webchat team that this had gone through but not on my boarding pass, when I got the the airport the Ryanair staff were extremely rude to us, they sent us to the back of the queue I front of everyone and then told us we would have to pay to take our bags with us, they then had to be out on the hold. When we got back to Birmingham we then had to sit on the plane for around 15 minutes as there was not a slot for us. I spent hours of my 2 day break trying to sort check ins etc, I would never fly with Ryanair again."
Cons: "The problem with random seat allocation is if you pay to sit somewhere then that should be fine, no. Today I was constantly asked if I wouldn’t mind swapping seats so the passenger could be closer to their partner which is always going to be an inferior seat or worse sat in the middle seat. Their random seat allocation therefore can inconvenience seat paying passengers not a quality experience."
Cons: "The flight attendant was actually reading from the shopping catalogue.. it was actually annoying and I couldn’t relax during the flight."
Pros: "Flight on time, luggage handling ok"
Cons: "The long walk to and from the plane. The stupid trail down the steps into the cold and rain, across the tarmac then back up the steps into the plane. At Birmingham airport. Fine at Malaga no problem."
Pros: "The "sales" gets a little old. Duty free, lotto tickets, food, drink...…."
Cons: "Flight was delayed missed my last connecting train"
Pros: "Quick easy and cheap"
Pros: "Quicker flight late at night"
Cons: "Waiting on bus to terminal Almost missed last train."
Cons: "Staff were quite rude and didn't spend time explaining the delay we were having in English"
Pros: "The trip was smooth once we got a plane. Everything else was as ecpected."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and finally departed 2 hours late. Interrupted a full day’s worth of travel plans."
Pros: "Honestly nothing, apart from welcome smile from crew..."
Cons: "dirty, overcrowded, seats even closer in my opinion (Boening 737-800), broken window cover, bad smell"
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"
Pros: "Once the aircraft arrived the boarding and take off were fairly quick. The flight itself self was extremely quick and there was no hassle. Quite impressed with that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed initially with 2 hours. There was no notification by the airport. After 2 hours there was another hpur delay. Again there was no notification. We and the other passengers had to constantly last to the gatw screen to see any updates. We were left in the dark until the very moment we started boarding."
Pros: "Nothing -apart from the fact I eventually got to the destination I needed the same day!!"
Cons: "The delays. The lack of information. It became obvious we were not going to leave on time. But No announcement. nobody told us of the delay - or why. Then the conflicting information. Technical problems. Flight cancelled. Go to Ryan air deal to organise your own forward travel. Then - once back through Police & customs. No - flight going to happen!!! I have more to say about service & crew - but no space"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Delayed Limited information/explanation provided Ground staff rude"
Pros: "Nothing really, it's a cheap ticket and that's it."
Cons: "Ridiculous boarding situation, expensive onboard food and beverage. Upright seats. Advanced check in always seats your group apart to encourage you to purchase seats. Budget airline that trust to milk their clients for every penny. Only use them if no other option."
Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "The delay in boarding particularly as no explanation was given."
Cons: "The cabin bag fiasco"
Pros: "Speed of flight, getting off the plane"
Cons: "Stinking aeroplane, long delays, immigration and security queues"
Pros: "Uncomplicated flying."
Cons: "I planned to eat on the plane so bought nothing onboard with me. By the time the cart got to me there was no food left. I had no option but to buy some crackers for my meal. The moral of the story: buy food to take with you!"
Pros: "Was quick and easy"
Pros: "For the price what is there to complain about."
Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Sitting with a stranger"
Cons: "Don’t like the underhand Ryanair pricing"
Cons: "Everything wasnt fully compensated and when zi asked for help refused to speak to me"
Pros: "We landed 10 minutes earlier than expected"
Cons: "We paid £80 a person which is over double what it costs us to fly there with vueling on less notice They then moved the boarding location after everyone had lined up causing us to loose out place in the queue They made us check our cabin bags which we were warned could happen but is never appreciated The seats were uncomfortable and very cramped for leg room The touched down while not totally their control was very harsh and a panel over the engine actually slid open on touch down which is a little concerning There was also a 20 minute delay taking off"
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: "The staff were pleasant and helpful on board I didn’t have any food and there wasn’t any entertainment"
Cons: "I didn’t like that there was absolutely nobody at the airport to answer any questions or just guide you in the right direction"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours, Ryanair lied to us the entire time"
Pros: "Nothing, taxi plane, expectations not high"
Cons: "Cramped seating, flight delay, time waiting at the boarding gate."
Cons: "If RyanAir reads these reviews can I make a small suggestion that would make a big difference? The plastic cups provided with drinks are tall and narrow making them unstable inflight.Simply changing to a more squat shape would increase passenger comfort."
Cons: "Small seats"
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"
