Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Internet"

Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."

Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"
Cons: "Not being to help on the ground in Copenhagen with delta issues"

Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"

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!"

Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"

Pros: "General flight journey"

Pros: "Entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "Seats a bit hard"

Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"

Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."

Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."

Pros: "Everything OK"

Pros: "Short flight and being able to escape from drunk belligerent Passenger on previous flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"

Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"

Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"

Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."

Pros: "quick and relaxed"

Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"

Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."

Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

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: "Excellent service, excellent food."

Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"

Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."

Pros: "The whole thing from start to finish was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing amazing its opposite, ryanair.com its the worst airline in Europe or maybe on the world. EU parliament should closings this airlane"
Cons: "no chance to be better, I think its all Passenger should expect only its will be worse"

Pros: "Very bad"
Cons: "Very bad"

Pros: "It was ahead of schedule"

Pros: "Crew were amazing. All brilliant. Captain was super super cool too."
Cons: "Free snacks."

Pros: "Very efficient"

Cons: "Got asked several times for passport checks, about six times. Didn't quite understand why so many. Not many seats in Lisbon airport. Same with toilets."

Pros: "Not a lot very basic"
Cons: "Now I know the meaning of Cattle Class"

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: "On time, quick boarding. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No air bridges"

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early, the staff were pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit grubby."

Cons: "Staff at check-in desk were rude. My carry on luggage was taken from me and placed in the hold even though I booked my flight long before Ryanair changed their rules about charging for carry on luggage. The sticky tab that the member of staff placed on my back has left marks all over the handle."

Pros: "The stay"
Cons: "Ridiculous long wait even though Ryanair said to still go for the original time. 9hours in the airport is not good enough"

Pros: "front-line staff were sincere. Plane was well-maintained."
Cons: "Chat staff wasn't competent."

Cons: "Delayed, then slow luggage reclaim (I believe that's your problem rather than the airport)"

Pros: "By the time you were up it was on its wayndowm 40 mins"

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."

Pros: "Flight delayed, 20 minutes to get through passport control, chaos at the car park due to changes & fees! Welcome back to England ☹️"
Cons: "Ryanair delays, Manchester airport in general, poor and anti-travelers focused"

Pros: "Cabin crew - efficient, friendly and with a sense of humour."
Cons: "Having to buy Prority boarding to guarantee access to the overhead bins. Seats not that comfortable. Little legroom (i’m average height at best)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were forced to get on the aircraft when it arrived late, with another 737 taxiing next to it( I know illegal). Then forced to sit on the plane for nearly 3 hours on the ground in heat. Staff were rude and awful. Everything was stupidly expensive, even water!!! When we eventually got to Manchester we had to wait in the plane again for 45minutes for the bus to arrive to take us to the airport. Only one person on passport control. Where our bags were all in a pile on the floor because of some malfunction. Ryanair flights are hell!!"

Pros: "3 hour delay due to an Italian air traffic control strike. Not the crews fault but they handled it well, especially the captain who spoke to everyone face to face"
Cons: "The selection of food was dismal and expensive, glad ok didn't buy as the quality looked poor"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "40 minutes baking on the bus to take us to the aircraft, Lack of communication Disrespectful and bad attitude of the crew Paying £80 to put luggage in hold to be told as I didn’t report that my case was damaged when I arrived at 01:00 am (in the morning) with an onward journey of 2 hrs I could not now place a complaint! Despite having photographic evidence!! No tap water available - given ice and boiling water I am done flying with Ryanair"

Pros: "Food was hot and tasty."
Cons: "Near 2 hour delay."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dirty seats, tables and floor. Both times we checked in and because we didn't pay for early check in we all got separated despite there being room to all sit together or at least in pairs. Had to pay to move to sit together. It costs £80 to bring a suitcase for the hold, however if you don't pay for priority boarding your handluggage gets placed in the hold anyway despite there being more than enough space in overhead lockers. If I had known how much it would be to pay for the 'extras' which area really basic requirements, I would not have booked with Ryanair. Next time I'll be going with another company who actually provide a basic service"

Cons: "No reveling seat, no water available and no jet way."

Pros: "Accessibility guys in both Bergamo and Manchester were brilliant."
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours the first hour was on the departure boards - fair enough but almost all of the second hour was on the plane with hardly any information at all."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight then held in pens for ages then held on the plane too."

Pros: "Ryanair still not putting their customers first. Poor experience checking in online. Had to use online chat which needed several attempts to get an answer, be careful calling Ryanair as they charge 13p per minute"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Couldn't take on bag as not priority. Booked extra leg room seats expecting priority but no longer Won't travel with Ryan air again"

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."

Cons: "30 minutes waiting, New lugguage policy!"

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

Pros: "Boarding was relatively quick"
Cons: "Left late and the staff were a little rude"

Pros: "Left 15 mins late due to idiots not making the gate on time and luggage having to be found for them and arrived on time in Manchester so well done Ryanair!!"

Cons: "As we landed at las palmas the passengers were screaming as we had turbulence, no one from the crew tried to ease their fear."

Pros: "Easy embarkation, left on time, uneventful flight, arrived before schedule. Just what I wanted."
Cons: "Everything was just fine."

Pros: "Typical Ryanair flight. You know what you are getting"
Cons: "Delayed. Chaotic boarding"

Cons: "The service is poor. They just want to rip you off. The bag price is ridiculous. When you check in they put you in separate seats do you pay. I paid for my son when we were flying out but when coming back l refused to pay. Guess what happened they allocated my 22 year old to sit on the emergency exit. The crew then came to me asking if l could swap seats with my son as he was not allowed to sit there as if it was me who had allocated him that seat. If it was the other way round they would have asked me to pay. When it suits them."

Cons: "Not much extra leg room and one attempted rammed the trolley into my foot trapping my toe against the wall and the didn't even respond to me shouting out in pain"

Pros: "They got us to Manchester alive, although late as always with Ryanair"
Cons: "Everything else, Ryanair provided an awful service, delays on both ends of the journey. No info provided to us and to top it off, there was a screaming child in front of me and next to me."

Pros: "Ease of being all done online check.in . Seats . Loved the crew the friendliness. The seat comfort and space ."
Cons: "The allowing of drunk passengers on return rude loud quite scary . Crew dealt with them very professionally"

Pros: "The flight was speedy and the plane was one of the new ones with a new interior, which was a nice change from the flight out to Germany."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and disorganised, the plane set off late as Ryanair always do, there were incredibly loud and rude customers onboard which the staff did nothing about. The seats weren't comfortable at all and the headrests were awful. Generally just an uncomfortable plane, the new design looks nicer but the seats are a lot thinner and it shows Just felt very cheap, the flights weren't even particularly cheap either"

Pros: "It was much, much better than the flight to Ibiza because the passengers were at least civilized ,were quiet & did not cause the crew any problems maybe because they were knackered after partying."
Cons: "Nothing to report. All went well. Very efficient & pleasant."

Pros: "Effective service point A to B. Flew from Hamburg Manchester and seated 17A. Leg room good on the exit row."
Cons: "New slimline seats will be difficult for anything more than 2 hours"

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."

Pros: "On time Pleasant cabin crew Fast Track"

Pros: "Arrived 25 minutes ahead of schedule"

Pros: "1 star given for food & entertainment only because no N/A rating option, first time to use Ryanair, better experience than expected, will not hesitate to use again, thank you"

Pros: "Getting home"
