Cons: "Not be 1.5 hours late"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Online layout of the plane is deceiving. The plane isn't separated into classes is just a standard set up throughout the plane.

Cons: "Luggage situation"
Cons: "I received a flight delay notification saying that my flight is delayed by 37 minutes. But I still did arrive airport 2 hours before my flight, checked bag On time and went through security clearance 1.5 hrs before. The gate number was not assigned and later I found out that my flight took off on time. So I had to come out by front desk and rebook the flight to different airport which cost my extra taxi fare half day and too much Hassel. Never ever flying again in easy jet."
Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."
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: "Check in was efficient and good customer service"
Cons: "The plane is "bare-bones." I get it, it's economy. However, that's no excuse to neglect basic comfort. The seats for both my flights, two different planrd, were worn such that I could feel the medal supports. Very uncomfortable. We sat in the rear. Stewartess sat behind and loudly gossiped the entire flight. Would I fly again? If no other option, yes"
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: "Flight was timely."
Cons: "There was a rowdy bachelor party group on the flight that was obnoxious. We paid extra to have our luggage checked so we could use the overhead bins for our backpacks. Were told by the crew we could not use the overhead bins for larger backpacks since they needed them for other luggage. Then someone else put their backpack up in the overhead bin and the flight crew told us that was their option."
Pros: "not much. that flight is cheap."
Cons: "When we arrived at the check-in counter we checked in together with my husband. I told the check-in counter personnel that we would like to sit together. My husband was put in seat 1F and I was put in 2F. We didn't look at the boarding passes until we reached the plane and saw this. The row where my husband sat was empty (row 1) so I don't know why i was put on row 2 when we could have sat together on row 1. This is very bizarre. Furthermore I had to walk half way down the aisle to put my suitcase because all the overhead lockers were full. The flight attendant who was overseeing all this was very rude and kept telling me that I need to walk all the way down to find a space to store the luggage. She could have offered to have a look with me and try to squeeze it somewhere closer than half way down the plane."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "Delay as usual"
Cons: "Long delay as usual which caused very inconvenient domino effect in London."
Pros: "Nothing, only good thing was that the girl at the check-in was very nice and felt bad for the situation, then inside the plane after we landed, the manager was very attentive and nice to me, she heard my complaints and made sure I spoke my part."
Cons: "- They charged me 55 GBP for missing the check-in - They didn't let me facture the suitcase even tho I paid for the priority entrance. I had to throw away my liquid bottles. - While boarding one of the flight attendants told me to walk faster because they were late, even though I had two heavy bags in both of my hands. Then he insulted me in Italian and after I asked him 8 times to tell me what he said to me he told me to shut up and sit down. I sat down for 2 hours in a very bad mood trying to control myself from starting a fight. After the flight I waited and spoke with the manager about it, If I'm not wrong the name of the attendant was Luca and the manager heard my complaints. This was the worse flight of my entire life, I have never been treated so disrespectfully in a plane, I felt humiliated. I will never touch a Ryanair plane ever again. I definitely should be getting a refund for this."
Cons: "Flight was delayed missed my last connecting train"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Delayed Limited information/explanation provided Ground staff rude"
Cons: "The cabin bag fiasco"
Pros: "Speed of flight, getting off the plane"
Cons: "Stinking aeroplane, long delays, immigration and security queues"
Cons: "Delayed then not delayed then the crew were late and made no attempt to hurry themselves then wen we boarded we were told we were delayed an hour and 40 minutes so had to sit there on the plane with no1 telling us wats going on or wen we were leaving! No refreshments available while we were waiting really poor from Ryan air I won't be flying with them agen"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"
Pros: "Passengers and crew were nice. The basic price is ok, but many people buy "extras" like "privileged" boarding, and seats next to friends/relatives, so not so cheap overall."
Cons: "I don't understand Ryanair policy on random seat assignment. It delays boarding while passengers negotiate on swapping seats. I guess it's just a cynical ploy to extract more money, like the privileged boarding scam. In Palma, the departure board went from Delayed to Boarding without any announcements. The plane was late arriving and the crew blamed the ground staff. The ground staff were certainly slow coming to the plane at Stansted. I wonder if they are disenchanted with Ryanair too. We will actively avoid Ryanair where possible, and advise others to do so."
Pros: "Cabin baggage management"
Cons: "Hold baggage took over half an hour to arrive. Loot enough seats in gate at airport of departure"
Cons: "Gates announced too late"
Cons: "Everything wasnt fully compensated and when zi asked for help refused to speak to me"
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"
Cons: "We were stuck on the ground for an hour. Not impressed."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight was late to take off, and had to queue for 30 minutes at Shannon - before the plane had even landed. At stansted then had to get a long bus to the terminal and wait on the bus for 10 minutes because they couldn't open the doors. Luckily after a sprint to the station we made the last stansted express of the evening (£28 return each - 'London' airports for you)"
Cons: "Plane was late to take off by 40 minutes We arrived at the plane early on the bus, but couldnt board as the stairwell hadnt been fitted to the plane, therefore had to sit on the bus in the heat until the stairs came along"
Pros: "everything on this flight went like clockwork the flight left on time and the crew onboard were really helpful and pleasant"
Pros: "Nice, not that noisy"
Cons: "Other passenger a bit loud"
Pros: "Adequate seat room, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Priority boarding but congested at Gate and held standing on bus for 10+ mins. Cabin staff ok but not as alert, proactive or responsive as normal. Trying to sell scratch cards rather than provide relevant services."
Pros: "nothing ..."
Cons: "Queuing for 45 mins at boarding at 21.25 pm which grew to 10.05 pm! no apparent reason for this although we were all given manual luggage tags and then they were checked off again before getting into the plane- the Malaga ground staff could not answer questions as they didn't speak english well enough.. poor. onboard completely overcrowded locals and no help from crew on seating = lots of spare stoats at back.. i.e. space."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "All passengers were lined up waiting to Board at the correct gate at leading up to and at the time the flight was supposed to depart at 11.55am. There was no communication on the flight boards and no member of staff from Ryanair or other near the gate. At about 12.30 two members of airport staff turned up and started the boarding process and eventually we got away an hour late at 12.55 still none the wiser about the lack of communication, service and delay. It would take a lot to persuade me to fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Timely departure, relatively smooth check-in"
Cons: "Too much in-flight advertising, no complimentary drinks."
Pros: "A 6 hour delay with rude, nasty staff. I will be making a formal complaint."
Cons: "The staff bullied a girl next to me and have no sympathy."
Pros: "Timing was ok"
Cons: "All passengers were asked to pre-board which meant standing in the bridge to the plane before the plane arrived. We then had to walk down the stairs outside with the mosquitoes then walk up the stairs to the plane."
Cons: "The air conditioning was very high and I think that most passengers feel very cold during the flight."
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: "Cheap and cheerful great service very efficient"
Cons: "Very bumpy landing at Glasgow"
Pros: "No frills, on time, good value for money"
Cons: "The food selection is nothing to rave about."
Pros: "The flight was on time and I got a good seat despite not upgrading."
Cons: "Some passengers were noisy, but luckily I had earplugs."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay by two hours"
Pros: "Ryanair professionals are soo better than a few years ago"
Cons: "To pay for water if I feel thirsty during the flight"
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: "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,"
Pros: "Cabin crew were brilliant and dealt with all questions with ease. Well trained team and immaculate appearance."
Cons: "Rough landings but not sure if that's due to aircraft model."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Not a lot of point in having priority boarding as everyone on the coach so no priority"
Pros: "They didn't disturb us with as many sales calls down the isle as usual. Smartly dressed crew. Otherwise nothing."
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay Lack of communication Constant queuing No leg room No head rest No entertainment what so ever No food/drink provided FoC No compensation Chair does not recline"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 7 hours"
Pros: "Crew boarding and overall is good"
Pros: "Simple, comfortable, practical & cheap.Love Ryanair...they make quick weekends away possible...Ryanair have changed. In particular the fact that they allow a second small bag in the cabin make them now a lot better than easyjet (My experience with easyjet recently has been much more pedantic & fussy & awkward). Ryanair gets you there cheaply and with a decent degree of comfort and service."
Pros: "I can't think of any."
Cons: "Rude gate staff at Otopeni Airport insisting I place my hand luggage in the hold until I informed them I had priority seats. The whole concept of priority boarding goes out the window as boarding was via a bus"
Pros: "The plane was clean and we boarded on time ..... however we sat on the plane for 2 hours whilst Ryan air staff disembarked a drunk passenger from the plane and found his luggage . It was very obvious whilst waiting at the gate that this man was very very drunk and already being extremely abusive to his partner . Why was he allowed to board the plane causing inconvenience to all the passengers on board and the cabin crew and the following passengers on the next flight ? Yes the team apologised but we weren't provided with any drinks or offered a discount on pod and beverages and practically had to beg to be able to use the toilet during the delay ........ really disappointing"

Cons: "landing was terrible"
Pros: "Crew were fine, but I'd rather pay a few quid more on the ticket to have a better experience. Something between this and BA would be fine for me."
Cons: "Never a pleasant experience, but mercifully brief."
Pros: "The morning flight was over an hour late with considerable time spent on the apron - the evening flight was equally late - I don't have a problem with planes being late - it happens due to weather etc. BUT. only if I am told what is happening, no information was provided whatsoever, this is not helpful...."
Pros: "Busy departure time, waited 45mins in the aircraft for take off. Had to check in our hand luggages due to busy flight so again waiting at the other end to retrieve our baggage."
Pros: "Barcelo hotel it couldn't have better staff. From reception, waitress/bar, and all the people involve in the service, they are all great professionals and it give you the best services. We will come back asap Xxx"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Was delay an struggled with baby"
Pros: "Great app"
Cons: "Boarding was manic and Kerry airport facilities poor."
