Cons: "Not to fly with Ryan air which I won’t be!"
Pros: "On time - From Southend"
Cons: "The extra charges at EVERY turn on a hellish web site that makes you never fly again"
Pros: "Nothing, DO NOT flybw this airline"
Cons: "They charged me 220 pounds at the counter for boarding passes"
Pros: "The cost was the big plus on this flight."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed missed my last connecting train"
Pros: "Quick easy and cheap"
Cons: "I had to pay for priority 2 bags only because I didn't want to check my small carry on - frustrating. I was told I needed a paper copy ticket, couldn't get one until exactly 2 hours before my flight according to the ticket agent. I waited patiently while many others checked in (later to see those same people on my flight who clearly checked in before the 2 hours), but then found out from a different ticket agent that I didn't need a paper copy ticket, so I waited there for no reason due to misinformation from your ticket agent. My flight was delayed twice, then they lined us up at the wrong gate. After scanning our tickets, the door wouldn't open to let us out to the airplane, then they lined us up outside the plane in freezing cold winds because they were still cleaning the plane-the guy was still taking the trash out. Where is the "priority" in that? I know I really only paid to not have to check my bag, but it's also called priority - not quite sure they understood that. Will probably never travel this airline again, too much hassle and frustration for such simple things."
Pros: "Got there on time"
Cons: "It's Ryanair - a thoroughly unlikeable airline."
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: "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."
Cons: "Having to pay fee for airport check in."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Delayed Limited information/explanation provided Ground staff rude"
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "The cabin bag fiasco"
Pros: "Speed of flight, getting off the plane"
Cons: "Stinking aeroplane, long delays, immigration and security queues"
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3.5 hours"
Pros: "You can load and unload from the plane on both ends."
Cons: "They do not offer a complimentary drink and small snack for any flights, short or long. Anything other than a seat comes with a price tag."
Cons: "the fact my flight time was changed and no-ne told me!"
Pros: "Customer service was horrifying"
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: "inexpensive and quick flight so did not mind the tighter space"
Cons: "after all the fuss I heard about the airline, they never checked bag sizes or weights for anyone! the gate agent could not figure out how to login to start the boarding process, prolonging the on-boarding process"
Pros: "Our experience with Ryan Air was a nightmare! We liked nothing about the experience!!"
Cons: "We were charged for them to print our boarding passes. We were charged 50 pounds per person because we hadn't checked in online, despite our having done so. We had a change in plans so had to change our flight time after we had booked back in February. . Ryan Air charges more to rebook a flight than the initial cost of the booking, so we just bought another ticket. I will never book on this airline again."
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: "Plane was fine, crew was pleasant, flight was on time."
Cons: "We checked a golf bag. It was disaster trying to retrieve it at Stanstead. It took one solid hour, three people, and my husband finally having to get it out or the security area himself."
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."
Pros: "Cheap and cheerful great service very efficient"
Cons: "Very bumpy landing at Glasgow"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Would like people boarded according to their seats. Putting the carry on baggage away is disruptive to steady flow of taking seats. So if front and back doors board call in middle 10 rows first."
Pros: "Easy boarding (by boarding both ends of the plane at the same time it speeds things up). Cheap!"
Cons: "The process of checking in online was very misleading. While checking in online, their website continuously glitched. It would jump back a page, add products that I did not want (such as early boarding) without me selecting those products, etc. Finally after quite some time, I was able to check out only with the products I actually wanted (luggage fees). I received a confirmation email, and therefore I assumed we were good to go. We arrived at the airport to find out according to the staff we had only partially checked in. They could see that we started the process but since we apparently did not fully check in, we were charged £90 (45 per person) to check in at the airport. When I emailed Ryanair customer service and explained the entire situation, they absolutely could not have cared less. As a seasoned traveler, this one really takes the cake for poor customer service. Absolutely the worst experience that I've had with an airline. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Low fare. Efficient check in process."
Cons: "Long walk to the gate. No ramp into the plane from the gate. No escalator. You have to go down the stairs and walk to the plane to board."
Cons: "Plane was half hour late and they refused to post that it was delayed. We landed 30 min late. We also SLAMMED into the Tarmac, felt very close to a crash landing. It was a scary. I have never had such a violent landing. Couldn't have been good for the plane. All the passengers were clearly worried. Not the way you want to stay a trip. Not comfortable w this trip, probably wouldn't recommend Ryan. It also feels like your on a subway car in the sky."
