Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"

Pros: "We love the flight all the way"

Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"

Pros: "On-time Quick boarding Friendly staff"

Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Stop the incessant advertising and selling over loud speaker when most people are trying to sleep through a flight ."

Pros: "No issues - everything went smoothly"
Cons: "There are no nets on the back of the seat in front of you to put things like water bottles - headphones, books etc."

Cons: "Very cramped Carry bag allowance too small"

Pros: "Price perfect, I love it. Seat great even for a very large person like me."
Cons: "Very hard landing, never hit the ground harder."

Pros: "Although flight was late they made up time pretty well"
Cons: "Flight to and from Carcassonne is rarely on time"

Pros: "Straightforward process"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "It was far too hot making some of us feel dizzy & sick"

Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "Being allocated when we booked seats apart to make us pay £11 to sit together. All we can take from this is that it was another money grabbing exercise by Ryanair as there were plenty of empty seats available when we boarded!"

Pros: "From arriving at the airport to departing destination airport everything was seamless and perfect. Would like to travel like this every time. Hats off to everyone who involved."
Cons: "Being treated like a valued customer. It makes a difference."

Cons: "Checking opened 20 minutes late and lengthy queues through security meantwe had no time to grab food/shopping as we had to rush to gate as no notifications that our flight was actually delayed by an hour. Everyone was herded onto buses to wait there for some reason rather than at gate"

Pros: "price time of flight"
Cons: "unable to choose your seat free expensive tea and coffee and others"

Pros: "That I made it home..and that the pilot was honest about running late and tried to make up the time. The guy checking us in at Fuerteventura was very pleasant."
Cons: "That the so called budget airline charges for everything..now on board bags. What next..a tariff for the toilet or to exit the plane..nothing would surprise me! 20kg isnt enough for a holiday...but just another excuse to charge more money. The on board staff never offered to help anyone struggling to find their seat or with their hand luggage. In fact the 2 girls at the back end of the plane were too busy bickering to notice anything. The space you get to sit in is ridiculous you can't even bend down in it. And the plane was delayed."

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but nothing to tell us it was delayed apart from the screens. I got priority booking for the flight and on the way home no one shouted or got priority passengers over so it was a waste of money."

Pros: "Price and punctually."
Cons: "As mentioned being separated by the “ random computer choice of seats. We were put rows apart both with empty seats either side of us, we fly lots and only Ryanair and Jet2 do this."

Cons: "Sneaky pricing methods set up to catch you on return flight when you have no option but to pay to get back with dreadful unprofessional staff. I will never fly with them again if I can help it.i will go out off my way to tell as many as possible to never use or trust them."

Cons: "Boarding at Stansted not good. Security took too long. When we arrived at the gate the departure board stated "final call" however the gate hadn't opened yet? No communication as to reason for this delay."

Cons: "Delayed for over an hour with no announcement or reasons given."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats doesnt recline Nobody from the company to ask situation We los all conections and paids hotels"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Lateness and the waiting in the area to board with about 6 other flights in a small area with confusing announcements"

Pros: "Nothing although crew were friendly"
Cons: "3 hour delay in both directions this week. No announcements made about delay. Gates changed 2x. Poor communication throughout. Email from Ryanair about cancellation/refund options received AFTER flight. Got home at 1 am. Truly horrible experience"

Pros: "We managed to arrive."
Cons: "I disliked the lack of information about the delays, the poor facilities and extremely rude staff. It’s understandable that they’ve been working all day, but unfortunately this is the job they chose and I am paying for service of which I should be satisfied with."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "The almost two hr delay sitting on the plane then having to change planes."

Cons: "Couldn't recline seat Can't use Bluetooth as phone on airplane mode Hold luggage cost a bit expensive Automated seat allocation separates couples so we are forced to purchase seat to sit together. This is unacceptable."

Pros: "We got there on time,"
Cons: "- Surliness of staff especially at the gate: some passengers were queuing for the wrong flight and gate staff did very little to ensure that the risk of this was highlighted to others. Consequently when boarding some people were turned away as they should have been elsewhere - Unecessary split seats - New cabin baggage rules - caused delay at the gate and could have been avoided by asking people to check in the excess earlier as other airlines do."

Pros: "Smooth boarding and pleasant staff"
Cons: "Paying extra to sit together"

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: "Quick flight, friendly staff and pilot deserves credit for taking off in horrible weather conditions"
Cons: "No fault of the staff but we were an hour late boarding and I missed my connecting bus"

Cons: "two roads with Ryanair, each time delay of about one hour"

Pros: "Left late but arrived on time."
Cons: "Cost of seat and priority far too expensive, got caught out or wouldn’t have purchased. Flight really cold next to window. Boarding sign went up and our plane had not even arrived. Got everyone standing in lines far too early, my husband can’t stand for long periods, so back was sore before even on flight."

Cons: "Was approached when queing and told my bag was to go in the hold, there were people that had bigger/more bags that were not told this, i understand that if there is not enough room but surely first come first serve, we stood in the que specifically that this would not happen as we were in rush once we landed and did not have time to wait for bags. There were many people behind us that got to take their bag into the cabin."

Cons: "Automatically being allocated seats apart from each other"

Pros: "Staff tried hard in view of the delay"
Cons: "Food was lukewarm, didnt like the self check in at the airport for checked in bags"

Pros: "On time and cheap"
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "price"
Cons: "There was a group of about 6 passengers that were very drunk before they got on the plane. I could hear that they were asked on their way through security 'how drunk are you?' which they announced loudly to everyone. They were shouting on board. They were still sold alcohol by the crew who did nothing to quieten them down. As usual the flight was late (around an hour by the time we actually got to the terminal)"

Pros: "Everything was great good staff with an exception. Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Crew member very abrupt didn't take time to explain that he was doing something just hand gestured to say time out. And when questioned about it no explanation amd didn't listen to my com0laint about his behaviour just brushed me off. Very disappointed. When we landed passport control was very slow and kept us all waiting in the cold. Self scanning machines were not working."

Pros: "Nothing. Staff were pleasent enough"
Cons: "This flight was purchased on my behalf and was not chosen by me. Worst commercial flight ive ever been on. I will never spend a penny of my own money on a ryanair flight. Awful"

Pros: "Crew tried their best but their capacity were stretched to the max to accommodate us."
Cons: "In Malta airport they only had use of ONE wheelchair/passenger lift vehicle for all flights and we almost missed our flight because the airport team couldn't locate the lift vehicle (PRM). In Edinburgh airport, the lift vehicle got us off the plane ok but didn't have enough wheelchairs or assistants for all those who booked. In the end we were just dumped off by the luggage caramel and had to have the slightly better disabled push the severely disabled out whilst I pushed the luggages. The holiday was fine but the traveling was just terrible due to clear lack of resources and capacity of airport teams"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing free, not even a cup of water"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "the departure gate was never posted on the airport monitors. Someone close to us told us the gate was announced over head."

Cons: "Ryanair is really pretty bad at the customer one on one model. They DO NOT WANT TO HELP AT ALL !! it just seems to me if you are in customer service you should understand that people who travel from other countries are helping with your economy,YOUR JOB, If you don't fit the model move on,find something else to do in your life. Don't make me feel like I owe you,really you owe me a easy time getting through all the troubles of your airline.If some one from the airline reads this you should play under cover and see what i mean ,act as a person who needs help,does not understand your accent .you just really are bad !!"

Pros: "Nothing. It is hard to imagine businesses advertise on the plane. Why would any reputable business want to be associated with this company?"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and great at handling requests."
Cons: "No entertainment provided, boarding took quite a while and don't like the extra add-ons pre-flight. The flight started off quite cheap but with all the other add ons to make it an easier trip, it seemed unfair."

Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude people working."

Cons: "Boarding was very slow, 30 minutes late taking off. Everything else was okay, nothing special but nothing wrong"

Pros: "Price and noticable improvement from ryan air"
Cons: "Real value for money"

Pros: "Can't argue about price Planes were within 20 minutes of expected arrival time"
Cons: "Slow slow slow boarding, took forever. Too many people with big carry on bags that they were unable to stow, holding up the entire aisle. It was an evening flight and the lights were dimmed, but then the crew started blaring loud dance music before selling scratch cards: seriously annoyed the majority of the plane that was sleeping!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cattle car approach. Cost saving is commendable. Charging for EVERYTHING is not."

Pros: "Great price and convenient . On time"
Cons: "Tight quarters"

Pros: "In the US, on a quick flight like that you would be lucky to get soft drinks. They sold snacks cappuccino and all the items in the catalog like Bose headphones! Impressed. They only took pounds or credit card. Having only euro and dollars, I used cc but for done reason they only take European credit cards?! They accommodated me though and took euro."
Cons: "Baggage took forever to come out. I paid for priority boarding but they put me in other boarding so I was split up from my friend. We were 30 min late so everyone was standing in line - need boarding groups to call."
