Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"
Cons: "Delay of a half hour."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot took off and landed very well and I got completely drink and food. I will fly again. Thanks"
Cons: "It’s a bit cheeky because I know all airlines do it. But to bring a case included in the price and less hand luggage would be great. Having said that the hand luggage is very generous and I managed a full week in Ibiza with hand luggage. Thanks"
Pros: "The Flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The gate could have actually showed our flight which it did not. Someone could have communicated that the flight was delayed instead of saying final call on the boards. Overall it was very confusing and no staff was present to assist. In the end we were 2 hours late."
Cons: "Be on time so we dont miss our connection"
Pros: "Flight and on board service was fine"
Cons: "It is not acceptable when arriving at the recommended time, at a major airport, with a major airline, to find no desks open. We checked in online but our passes “could not be issued”. There were no self service terminals so we stood waiting an hour. Staff were sitting idly but not serving customers."
Pros: "Nice, remember usb charger cord & earbuds."
Pros: "More legroom comes as standard, compared to competitor airlines on the same route with the same aircraft"
Cons: "The interior of the plane is a little bit tatty"

Cons: "there was nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"
Pros: "The crew is always incredible"
Cons: "When you buy business you expect the quick boarding etc. Boarding group 1 and 2 together created a mess"
Cons: "Better not be hungry while boarding"

Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats comfy for the 2hr flight"
Cons: "Having to board the plane in the pouring rain by running across the tarmac."
Pros: "Stuff happens outside of the company's control and the inbound flight was an hour late due to crew absence. We were kept informed along the way and we boarded 55 minutes later than expected. However I couldn't have wanted for a better inflight service. Charming helpful and effective."
Cons: "Having to wait for the delayed flight."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "There were no gluten-free food options, not even an apple, so no food for us."

Pros: "Better than Ryanair/easyjet but then again. That’s nothing to write home about"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours. The plane was old dirty and stinky. I paid last minute for my flight so it was a lot more than usual so I feel ripped off because of the poor quality"
Pros: "Leg room service and food all included and excellent"
Cons: "Unable to get e tickets,so need to find somewhere local to print ticket within 24 hours of return"

Cons: "Our flights were delayed 3 hours and 20 and although we were compensated for lunch at the airport, when handing out refreshments onboard we were completely missed out. Also pretty annoyed to find that we could only use the lunch vouchers in a hand full of the bars and restaurants."
Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"
Cons: "Massive delay due to snow, no vouchers given until flight was cancelled (and it was all closed). Only updates were via BA app or email. Next day flight also delayed, and again delays communicated only via app or email (not at signs at airport)"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. On time, clean aircraft and professional."
Cons: "But the food policy is a joke. They wouldn’t give us anything, including water without buying it. I had no local currency and was waiting until I landed to use the ATM. When flying, people need water."
Pros: "The Service, with smile, awesome service. Very British!"
Cons: "THE BACK FIRST TOOK MY MONEY, THEN MY FULL PASSPORT DETAILS AND THEN DENIED ME FLYING BECAUSE THEY PUT MY SURNAME TWICE ON THE BOARDING PASS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WIN. I AM OUT OF POCKET FOR £170 AND DELAYED BY 2.5 HOURS. THIS IS THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY - BY CHEATING ON PASSENGERS."
Pros: "How do you be a full service airline and charge for check in bag. I had no way provided to prepay for a bag resulting in getting charged £60 at the airport. This notwithstanding trying to explain how your website failed me."
Pros: "Ease of checking in and getting to departure gate at London City Airport."
Cons: "No food or drink on flight for normal travellers."
Cons: "Bad service, messed up booking, change me to the last row at boarding, I can keep going"
Pros: "Service good on board"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"
Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."
Pros: "All was OK"
Pros: "I thought the crew were extremely helpful and friendly and made for a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The coffee was just "okay"."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. They could not have been MORE pleasant. Really great staff, loved them. Even the captain or pilot was great, made announcements to keep us up to date on the arrival and explained everything clearly."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food was okay. It wasn't bad or anything, just okay."
Pros: "Lucky enough that the flight was half empty so there was space for the passengers, the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was from Faro in July excesseding temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius outside, while inside was a an absolute freezer, not more than 15/16 degrees inside. I had to change cloathing mid flight cus I couldn't deal with the cold air anymore. On previous flight from London stansted to fato was exactly the same, and there wasn't any difference, we asked if we could turn off the aircon, no answer was given, neither warm covers were provided since the air was so cold. The flight attendant was female, by the name tag was "Praya" was somewhat a bit insensitive, but I realised after that she was as unfortunate as we were cus she was wearing a short sleeve shirt part of uniform, and experiencing the same as the rest of the passengers. The temperature issue caused the flight to be extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome!"
Cons: "They were 25 min late landing. Even though we were taking the same plan from London City to Glasgow, we had to get off and go through customs and reboard, all in 5 min. They knew we had to do that and they almost took off without us and a few others in the same position. Then the stewardesses acted like we caused them to take off late to Glasgow....really rude."
Cons: "They refused to hang my wedding dress, because I was not flying business class, so I had to shove it in the overhead. The were half hour late boarding. my "hot" meal was cold. They did not load my luggage on to the plane. I checked my bags two and a half hours before the flight time to go from Santorini Greece to Glasgow Scotland. Apparently it in three hours, since the plane was a half hour late boarding, they could not manage to load my luggage before take off."
Cons: "Deylayed Took us out on the bus and then back in and then back out"
Pros: "With COVID restrictions stopping buy-on-board, all passengers in Euro Traveller recieve a complimentary packet of crisps or breakfast bar and bottle of water."

Pros: "yes seats were more comfortable and more leg room than the other airlines I have used"
Cons: "It was all pretty good and despite leaving a little late we got there on time"
Cons: "This airline flew me from Manchester to London. At the worst time."
Pros: "As always no issues at all, I reserved my seats early to get extra leg room which is always great. Fast boarding and a quick flight, having been on a long haul flight a few hours before I needed this to get home."
Pros: "The fact that it got me there"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, even coffee"
Cons: "Flight was diverted for 4 hours due to thunderstorm in Toronto"

Pros: "This was the right size airplane for the long trip very comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The food service was very good. Entertainment choices were abundant and generally good."
Cons: "Reaching our connecting flight. The Bataan death march comes to mind—concourse 3 to 5, oh my! Having got through all the hurdles including incomprehensible up, down, up again down again escalator rides and security pat down for my wife we got to Concourse 5 where we learned our plane was leaving from C gates, but not which C gate. So we looked for directions to C gates. The only signage was for C gates 52 to 57. Common sense would lead one to believe that C gates 1 to 51 existed somewhere in the terminal; but no they do not and not many people are aware that they don’t. There has to be a better way. Perhaps before Brexit becomes a reality you could lean on Germany’s vaunted efficiency to help clean up this nightmare scenario."
Pros: "Wonderful flight! Excellent, extremely friendly service! Could not have been better!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Crew. Crew was very rude. I understand their day was difficult due to the delay, but it made it worse for passengers, many of whom missed or were about to miss connections"
Pros: "Good crew and efficient service."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable business class seats. Had a hard time getting any sleep."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was quick and boarding was easy"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system."
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Pros: "Crew were helpful, polite"
Cons: "Flight was late boarding and departing Not particularly comfortable seats No free drink"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for to long...."
Pros: "Funny safety video."
Cons: "Lost baggage. Still waiting on update and location for property. Clerk at lost baggage desk was rude and unhelpful."

Cons: "Cramped and no free tea/coffee"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"
Pros: "Nonstop flight to London from Orlando"

Cons: "I asked as soon as boarded what were your gluten free food options were? Told there would be hot food options. But this one meal was sold Hence I got nothing to eat as there was no other option"
Pros: "the person i sat beside.Food was not too bad."
Cons: "Old antiquated IFE system.Left over an hour late due to a sick crew member[why show to work if you are ill?].Old overhead luggage bins."

Cons: "It was late and I almost missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Pros: "Everything on time. Crew had a smile."
Cons: "USB charger was not working in seat 34f."
Pros: "Reasonably efficient and comfortable."
Pros: "Great staff, and very helpful."
Cons: "Small seats, and the website wouldn't let me choose an exit row. The seatbelt signs in the back section DID NOT WORK, and got me scolded when I went up for a bathroom trip (no announcement and you couldn't see any other signs from the seat). When we boarded the plane, the rear half or so of the plane was a ridiculous temperature"
Pros: "The video selection was terrific."
Cons: "I was right in front of a cabinet that the stuardess used and my seat was hit at least three times. The seat bottoms were much too painful for a 10 hour flight, I even sat on my pillow the last five hours just to be somewhat comfortable. Next time I will request a second pillow."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "My seat covering was too short and plastic part exposed. Luckily empty seat was used to replace actual seat"
Pros: "same as newark-london sector."
Cons: "same experience as in newark- london sector"
Cons: "I was a sardine in a tiny tin for 10 hours."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Attentive and amusing."
Cons: "I hate that the armrests don't raise up only halfway, so if you happen to luck out and have an empty seat next to you, you will can't lie down comfortably."
Pros: "Good overall. Such a quick flight there's not a lot to experience."
Cons: "Nothing negative, we didn't have entertainment or food service, so can't comment."
Pros: "Not absolutely full so space overhead was available, allowing some foot room."
Pros: "Nothing stood out good or bad. Average plane. Average service."
Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people on the prior flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."
Cons: "Too many passengers taking oversized cases on flight. As a result delays whilst luggage was removed into the hold"
Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight was comfortable however the boarding process was a bit disorganized but I’m pretty sure that was an airport issue"
Cons: "Free refreshments"
Pros: "EasyJet are generally efficient and feel like they have the passenger in mind."
Cons: "Not sitting cooped up in our seats waiting 45 minutes for a slot."
Cons: "Horrible boarding process."
Pros: "On time and nice staff"
Cons: "No vegan options on menu other than crisps......."
Pros: "What a landing from the pilot. Straight from the aviation textbook."
Cons: "12 min delay."
Cons: "Followed online checking, wasn’t seated with my wife, called support, they told me to ask a stewardess when I board. So she is terrified of flying and had a horrible flight sitting with 2 strangers. Had to pay for baggage, I just finished traveling all over Greece, never paid for baggage, until Easy Jet.. I wasn’t impressed at all with Easy Jet and will never book with them."
Cons: "The seats not comfortable for such a long flight, especially compared to bue air on the outbound trip"
Pros: "Overall ok experience"
Cons: "Flight delayed, and had to wait long in the airport. Limited seating while waiting"
Pros: "Overall Easyjet is an ok airline, I will continue to fly with them, however, small things like paying extra for speedy boarding and then not having a separate line is a real disappointment. Given the option I would pay a the extra to fly with a better airline, however, being from Northern Ireland we are limited to what we can have."
Cons: "Flight left late. Hand luggage bag had to be checked in. I had to go straight to work after I Ianded so didn’t appreciate the extra 20 minutes wait at the luggage carousel. I was told the overhead lockers were full, which they weren’t."
Pros: "Plane was fine"
Cons: "had to wait nearly an hour from departure lounge then on the plane before takeoff. Felt we were being herded like cattle and then left to stew in a holding room before allowed access to plane."
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 2 hours (19.05 flight)... Even the 20.30 flight left before us! Zero communication from ground staff, no food vouchers. Extremely poor!"
Cons: "Late take off"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "At first we had no seats as the plane was one row shorter than the one booked, so we had to wait. It turned out there were 3 free seats on the back row so my son could have a window seat for his 2nd time in the air."
Cons: "Speedy boarding is shambolic"
Pros: "Staff were good. EasyJet kept us informed. There is a high degree of efficiency and you are treated as a paying passenger rather than cattle."
Cons: "Delays seem inevitable with EasyJet on the Belfast route. I can't remember the last time we had one that wasn't delayed by more than half an hour. The scheduled time is longer than any flight has taken, but I think this is actually a realistic approach given the probability of a delay. There is an issue with 2-3 year olds and seat belts - they are not allowed to travel on a parent's lap, but they can wriggle out a lap belt easily and so are unsecured."
Pros: "Worth paying for extra legroom & speedyboarding helped make one of the easiest flights wver"
Cons: "Food & drink too expensive and not high standard."
Cons: "PAYING 150 EUROS EXTRA TO TAKE MY HANDBAG ON BOARD"
Cons: "The ground crew in Berlin was rude and impolite. They decided to check in our bag for the hold luggage without asking us and ordering us. In comparison the ground crew in Paris asked politely who would like to check in the bags because of a space shortage."
Pros: "The process was uneventful but comfortable all round.. we left right on time and arrived back right on time."
Cons: "Using buses rather than gates to to enter the airport. Is it some kind of saving money with out considering passengers comfort"
Pros: "Crew were extremely pleasant and made the whole experience comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing really. Didn't have any food so can't comment on that."
Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"
Pros: "The hot tea"
Cons: "The noisy children they were not controlled by there perants"
Cons: "We thought we were saving so much money by using KAYAK. When we got to the airport, the airlines charged us a premium because we did not alert them we would be checking in our baggage. Kayak did not give us the option to check in our baggage, and we ended up paying more to check in our baggage than the airfare. There is no way to contact KAYAK and speak to a human being, so we will not be using this service ever again to book flights or anything else for that matter."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Late departure. Limited legroom."
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: "Fligh attended were so friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle for not only for us " family of 4" but also for a lot of customers. So basically one of the boarding workers went through the line and ask how many luggage do we have. My dad said she already checked once while we were waiting by the gate. Anyway we made the line and basically the 2 nd time that she checked our loggage and I said we r 4 ppl and each one carry on and she said that besides carry on we had 2 back pack which we fit laptops . She checked and left and when we start boarding the said oh wait here you have 2 back pack so we need to pay for each carry on €60. She not only pulled us out of the line but also asked too many customers to go out of the line and fit even their small purse inside carry on. I was so mad cuz she already asked 2 times Before boarding and she didn't say anything. And during boarding she made us to leave the line and got the back packes inside the carry on . We travelled 3 countries in Europe w one back pack and one carry on. This was my first time ever experiencing this . I would never ever take any flight w easy jet again."
Pros: "Kind, attentive service on board. Left a little late but still made good time."
Cons: "For boarding, we were all queued up in one small space at Schoenfeld, then had to go sit in another room, before we boarded, seemed like extra steps. Maybe that's more of an issue with the airport's policy, it was my first time there."
Pros: "In flight magazine"
Cons: "Lack of gluten free choices Queues and delays getting on the aircraft"
Cons: "They didn't confirm the delay - only said it was estimated meaning while we could have come to the airport at a later time given the delay they made us come at the time required for the original flight. For a three hour delay thy gave us a 3GBP voucher. I will be fighting for compensation but am appalled by their service"
Cons: "Website is poorly designed and bag charges are excessive. I will not use this airline again and suggest others to avoid."
Pros: "I was offered to check in my hand luggage for no extra fee"
Cons: "apparently easyjet sends wrong check-in instrucions to all passengers and so we had to shuttle between terminals, face extremely long queues etc. check-in took from arrival to arriving at the duty free lounge 1.5 hrs(!)"
Pros: "Smooth experience from boarding to landing, staff efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Cons: "Leg room was tight. No drinks were offered on a two hour flight."
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "The pilot kept refering to Tel Aviv air port as Jaffa airport, made me feel unconportable."
Pros: "Nothing. We were not on the flight because the gate closed before we got there. We were delayed because my wife had booked assistance from departure area to gate."
Cons: "We were delayed by Airport assistance for my wife although it was booked well in advance and Easyjet gate closed before we got there despite the fact they were told we were on our way we had to rebook at a cost of €337 single for two persons from Malaga to Belfast."
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "Window seat, friendly staff"
Cons: "One bag rule, dont get a personal bag. Small seats with less leg room than other budget lines. Cant even fit carry on under seat in front. Overall the worst of all the budget flights I took. I would recommend WOW or Norwegian over easyjet anyday."
Pros: "Absolutely no information given by airline staff or airport staff."
Pros: "Easy boarding--priority boarding"
Cons: "So far to walk"
Cons: "very long delay with no real reason given"
Cons: "EasyJet made us pay for our checked in luggages almost more than the ticket because we did not do it online: 14 euro per kilo! We did not and had no way of knowing. Not that cheap of a flight after all."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The flight was delayed Changing info re going to gate meant it was difficult to judge the very long walk"
Cons: "No communication and little respect that people are taking time out of their lives to travel. Utterly appalling"
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: "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"
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: "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"
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: "flew from eindhover to london."
Cons: "flight was a late time slot. Could have done with a few hours less in Eindhover. We were told to board and left outside in the cold for 15 minutes. No information or announcement as to why the delay.. or why in the freezing cold."
Cons: "The flight was half an hour late arriving than its departure time, then we waited a further 1.5 hours before taking off arriving in London at quarter to 2. Barely any announcements were made meaning many felt confused and frustrated. Understandably the weather meant we couldn't take off but that wasn't explained until it was too late. Upon arriving in London we then waited a further 15 mins to disimbark as they only had one person who could open the doors at Stanstead. This felt like adding insult to injury."
Pros: "Was delay an struggled with baby"
Pros: "Great app"
Cons: "Boarding was manic and Kerry airport facilities poor."
Pros: "Friendly staff, arrived on time despite poor boarding protocol."
Cons: "Been invited to board, only to end up waiting in a freezing cold stairwell which lead outside, only to find that nobody from Ryan air had even been on the plane yet. The plane door had never been opened until 10 minutes after we had been waiting in the cold."
Pros: "The planes are getting older apparently. This plane was very noisy."
Pros: "I hated everything"
Cons: "I will never fly with Ryanair again. They ripped off all my money. If I would have booked 2 tickets with British airways would have been much better and cheaper."
Cons: "Suitcases took ages to come out!"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours early to make sure I had plenty of time to find my way around. I found out 45 minutes before my flight that it was delayed 5 hours. They apologized and offered us a $5 voucher for food/ non alcoholic beverage. $5 is like maybe 35% off a meal without a beverage. I wouldn't have even eaten there had it not been for the delay, so I ended up spending more money there to get some dinner. 7 hours in a small airport without things todo makes for a very long day. It also would have been nice if the airport had charging stations for your phone and electronic devices."
Cons: "Staff was rude at check in and a group of us was all over the plane and 45 min delay for take even though we all boarded the plane"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Some passengers a bit too noisy."
Pros: "Check in efficient."
Cons: "Delayed. Changed of check in desk."
Pros: "Staff were helpful, reasonable price."
Cons: "Having to board and disembark in the rain. Very little room."
