Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No hassle cheap flights"
Pros: "Bag check in was great! Had a great experience with the Easy Jet staff. Security was u bit unfriendly."
Pros: "Cheap fare for this short flight. New planes, seats while thin still offer acceptable comfort."
Cons: "Very long walk to the farthest end of terminal for gate and have to walk up the stairs to board plane on the tarmac. Not a single human being to help check in or tag luggage for drop off. Everything’s self service. The check in/luggage drop off counter difficult to find."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Airport, Crew, Bag Drop"
Pros: "No food or entertainment available on board so I simply gave a neutral three stars (this was not expected with a budget airlines). Quick and easy boarding."
Cons: "I sprinted to my gate because I was panicked I would not be allowed to board, because the gates “closed” 30 minutes before my flight. I arrived 5 minutes prior to this and they hadn’t even begun boarding."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination Prices are acceptable"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late Pilot was rough flinging the plane"
Cons: "Comfort of seats and entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were excellent. I find flying uncomfortable so the seat was as comfortable as it could be."
Cons: "I wish they had a foot rest. Slightly elevated legs gives more comfort. But this a wish ( unlikely to be fulfilled) as I’m living in the real world : ). The process of check in took a while"
Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding was speedy"
Cons: "Late departure and late arrival."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "The crew were efficient."
Cons: "The flight left late. The seat was uncomfortable for me ( that is usual ) My major problem is that I was charged £247 and then a further £378 when I had to re book due to easy jet systems changing the dates. I am certain I booked the correct dates."
Pros: "I liked that we made it safely. That’s about it."
Cons: "No delays, more information, good communication and some compensating!"
Cons: "The landing was very bad"
Cons: "More legroom than expected. Large fees for checked bags in my opinion."
Pros: "Plenty space in the cabin and decent leg room on standard seats"
Cons: "Cabin crew are not very warming or hospitable feel like they are just doing their job rather than offering customer service which should be high on any airlines priorities when people are 33 000 ft away from comfort"
Pros: "Cheap flight and good service on bord."
Cons: "Bording area crawled and takes too long time."
Pros: "Quick and no fuss"
Pros: "The security check was fast."
Cons: "The bus from the plane to the airport."
Pros: "Everything was smooth :)"
Pros: "The staff were friendly"
Cons: "The passengers were arse holes bit the crew dealt with it well"
Pros: "Flight took off slightly late but landed at PMI roughly on time. I had the worst seat on the aircraft according to seat guru 31D which is the last row by the back door. But being the NEO 320 the seat was extremely comfortable and for someone who doesn't sleep on flights I nearly nodded off a few times. Knee room was ok but overall the seat was very comfortable and I could have easily spent a few more hours in that seat."
Cons: "Only problem was that the service trolley started at the front of the plane and it took a fair amount of time before it reached the last row, and being a fairly short flight by the time we finished our drinks the seat belt lights came on for landing."
Pros: "I don’t expect much from low cost airlines. Convenience and being in time"
Cons: "Passport control is just unbearable. 45 min because they had one person for Sever flights. A third world country does better"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The gates allocated to EasyJet are barracks manned by very unqualified personnel. Flight was delayed by 30 min"
Cons: "The flight was delay for 20 minutes other than that is fine"
Pros: "Once we were able to board, things went smoothly. The crew did well and were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed more than one hour was quite annoying."
Pros: "First time using EasyJet. Everything was very easy. All done online. No problems whatsoever. A very pleasant journey."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just fine!"
Pros: "Liverpool airport is really easy to arrive at and get to your gate. easyJet have some relaxed Liverpool staff and with Liverpool airport and easyJet Liverpool staff you have a relaxed combination."
Pros: "Easy jet staff were fab! At bag drop and despite their conveyers not working all great. Gate staff just as good. On plane no issues. Many thanks."
Cons: "Liverpool airport. No direct train link! Expensive to drop off £3.00 No staff to help navigate round. Signage poor. Forced through stupid duty free shops. No obvious way to avoid crowds and winding shop stuff! Despite being forced miles through the airport we still had to get a bus to the plane. No costa!"
Pros: "In flight crew were great."
Cons: "Seems like the consensus. Nice in flight crew, very rude check in crew. One worker at check in went out of her way to make me pay for a bag that the other lady said would be fine. I agreed to pay and she still tried to shame me. Kind of sad if that is where she finds enjoyment."
Cons: "Because my bag was 1.5 inches to big I was charged 50 pounds.i will not fly with easy jet for one year to ensure they do not profit from me.jobs worth at desk disgusting and have already ripped them on social media .So well done to that jobs worth.hope you sleep well at night"
Pros: "Didn’t die"
Cons: "No personal items allowed. Can’t have both a personal item and a carry on. At least we weren’t allowed but they let others in with both. Charged us sixty euros per bag."
Pros: "Aside from leaving on time, not much"
Cons: "Took 1h plus to check luggage because for most of the time there were only tow agents checking in people. Boarding was OK. Seats were usually uncomfortable. I know better so I got food at the airport. Delivery of luggage in Basel was relatively fast. As long as we are all willing to make cheap price the most important items in our choices we will get this treatment. You get what you pay for"
Pros: "Usual practical easyJet service."
Cons: "Long queue for passport control in Basel. What's going on with that?"
Pros: "Started boarding in plenty of time. Bus to plane. On time. Easy. Friendly. Check in at Marco Polo a bit confusing with self service but once we figured it out it was good. Didn’t try food and no entertainment on a one hour flight-not needed."
Cons: "Paid for handsfree but wa t allowed a lap top size bag despite phoning to check and being told it would be okay"
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Cons: "Delay due to late arrival then deicing. Food expensive and not much legroom."
Pros: "Easy booking app"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Great price for a flight. Also, the agent at the ticket counter was very helpful."
Cons: "It wasn't clear that their basic fare didn't allow you to bring a backpack in addition to a carry-on bag."
Pros: "Speedy Boarding is nice"
Cons: "That there is no pre-assigned gate. It's a crazy dash for the gate once announced. Seems inefficient. Wish you guys had a free loyalty program to reward people like all the other airlines do"
Cons: "Flight was 45mins delayed"
Cons: "Boarding with kids was difficult."
Pros: "Sufficient service quick boarding and de-boarding. Captain kept us well informed"
Cons: "Needs a little updating"

"There were some individuals not using face masks properly (being almost all the time without them) and the cabin crew did not alert them at all."
Pros: "Bought a seat 3 hours before check in and had a row to myself"
Cons: "Excellent Ryanair flight. 75% full. Very friendly crew."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Pros: "On boarding the plane was dirty. My daughters seat had food droppings on it which needed to brushed off before she could sit. We then had the worst landing we have ever experienced. Scary."
Cons: "A clean plane for passengers. An explanation to why the landing was so inept."
Pros: "Checkin and security Quick passport control and luggage"
Cons: "The plane was late, boarding process very slow, Lon wait to disembark"
Cons: "The area we were put in prior to boarding was just a continuous weaving queue and was quite crowded and stuffy"
Cons: "It was freezing we asked 3 times to have air con adjusted ...plus other passengers ask too . Nothing was done . Stag and hen people on flight... shouldn’t be served alcohol on flight if they seemed drunk already. People wouldn't sit down even with seat belt signs on..."
Pros: "La atención de la señora en Client Service"
Cons: "Boarding took long time took ages for a coffee . Stag and hen parties very loud and rowdy"
Pros: "Short flight so not much to expect"
Cons: "We were left sit on the runway after landing waiting for a spot to park up"
Cons: "Check in and lagged bag"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plane looked clean, crew all smart and genuine smiles. The bonus is we arrived early and their were no Benidorm p..s artists on board. Excellent."
Cons: "Only that we were late leaving, this didn’t matter in the end because we arrived early. I only gave one star for Food & Entertainment as the option to give no stars is not available. I’m sure the food would have been fine,however, I didn’t have food and brought a book for my own entertainment although I don’t believe any entertainment other than your own is available. I would suggest that Kayak offer a not applicable option on their star rating grid."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40min without any explanation or announcement from captain. We just sat on the runway for 40min."
Pros: "Service good"
Cons: "LEG ROOM TIGHT"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Very noisy people, very drunk people and like in all Ryanair flights, the staff has to keep giving people alcohol, so they were getting even more drunk. Not a good experience when all of them starts standing like in a bar on top of your head and raise the volume of the voice for no reason. Also from the time we landed until the time we were allowed to leave the aircraft, 15 minutes passed. Without anyone telling us for what reason. Very annoying..."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. I enjoyed the low fee to get priority boarding with guaranteed cabin baggage."
Cons: "The crew was late, which delayed our takeoff by 20 minutes, which is unpleasant when you have already boarded the plane and are stuck in your seat. However, the flight only landed 5 minutes later than planned. The seats are not very comfortable for flights longer than one hour. There is not enough room to work on your laptop at your seat. I was constantly bumping elbows with the passenger next to me. The cabin temperature was extremely warm. I was sweating nearly the entire flight and I felt very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The pilot and safety tannoy is not loud enough"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that there are lots of hidden fees, with the seat, luggage, etc. It is true that the ticket is cheap but paying the hidden fees adds up to the cost."
Cons: "There’s nowhere to put anything. Usually there’s a pouch to put your stuff in. That would be helpful."
Pros: "The price is generally good"
Cons: "Ryanair broke my bag and damaged my other bag"
Pros: "We arrived alive"
Cons: "Checking in was torture. It was the airline version of "The Trial" with a Dutch Twist (no one in charge). Luckily (?) the plane turned out to be 45 minutes late, so the eternity it took to have the rookie who finally showed up to look blankly at her computer screen, apprently hoping it would receive Divine instructions on how to work her way through the ONE PERSON in line in front of us, in order to stamp our pre-printed boarding passes did not cause us to miss the last flight of the day from Amsterdam to Dublin. Now lets talk about the torture device that Ryanair uses as a passenger seat. . ."
Pros: "Enjoyed the lasagna that I ordered, surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Under the circumstances, the staff coped well with certain difficult passengers. Noisy passengers are my pet hate especially when the safety drill is being read out."
Pros: "Fast flight nice staff"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Cons: "Being delayed an lied too"
Pros: "Cheap and convenient"
Pros: "Easy online check in with no need to visit a desk anyway, unlike Jet2 who enforce an online check in only for you to have to do it all again in person."
Cons: "Unnecessarily held at the gate for 45 minutes as the departures boards showed the flight as boarding - no way to get out of this area so stuck. Flight left late and then had to queue up to get access to a drop off area so missed my onward train connection. Paid for food in pounds but given change in Euros - disgraceful - don't offer to take payment in a currency you can't provide change for. Overall a poor experience, will not be flying with RyanAir again."
Pros: "Comfy seats and good legroom, great cabin staff. Good special assistance much appreciated."
Cons: "Flight delay but quality of service made up for it."
Pros: "La atención durante el vuelo que duró 30 minutos"
Cons: "El trato del personal durante el abordaje . PÉSIMO !!!"
Pros: "Value for money, this was good."
Pros: "Price was right. Very short flight so it was okay. Price was good."
Cons: "Called to gate BEFORE plane even arrived. Left to stand like cattle for over half an hour. Not a seat in sight. Way too much for my elderly husband."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Pros: "Great staff, very helpful and quick with boarding, quick journey"
Pros: "I liked that fact that we board from the front and back of the plane. great staff and smooth flight"
Cons: "the checked bags is a little expensive. 30 British pounds for one bag up to 20 kgs is a bit much. I would dare to say that hinders travelers that are planning on visiting Ireland as well as Great Britain. In Great Britain you can travel by train for less money and free bags, plus a lot less security and delays."
Pros: "We were not called"
Cons: "We missed the flight due to not being called over the tannoy and the next flight was 710pm and was another £200, also it meant that we missed the show that we were booked in for as it was a birthday present for today. Staff on the ryannaire desk was not very friendly or understanding to our situation."
Pros: "Lots of interEuropean routes."
Cons: "Online check-in is mandatory but unless I'd checked online I would not have known and been charged £50 at the airport counter during bag drop. This is an unethical cash machine for Ryanair that penalises travellers who might not be computer literate or online - a big brand turnoff."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, no seat back pocket"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "Still could do with just another couple of inches more space."
Cons: "Late. No explanation. Left standing on runway also in the heat."
Cons: "Don't even get water on flight pretty cheap"
Pros: "Straightforward online check-in process Priority boarding when paying for seats during check-in"
Cons: "Prepaying for baggage weight Requirement to print boarding passes No seats at gate to wait for boarding"
Pros: "The flight arrived on time and the plane was clean. When flights are this cheap I think it's naïve to expect anything more."
Cons: "Most of the bad things about Ryanair are consequences of their no-frills setup. People who fly with them have made the choice that low price is more important than luxury. The miserable bits about flying with Ryanair are: - The terminals/gates are frequently sheds (Grenoble, Bergerac), or in bigger airports the most distant and least well appointed (Liverpool). - Very little consideration is given to customer service (such as announcements for delayed flights). - The planes are as basic as can be, as is the service. - The scratch cards, food, drink, and all the "extras" you'd get as standard on other airlines such as included baggage, seat choice etc are all ways to boost profits given the low fares. - "They always leave late" - my theory is that the flight times are exaggerated so that they arrive on time at the expense of departure times, i.e. extra time is built in to the departure time to make up for cleaning / other gate delays. In short, flying with Ryanair vs KLM, BA, Virgin or Lufthansa is like taking a long distance Megabus instead of booking a seat on the train. It's cheaper. It's cheaper because it's a bit rubbish and a bit inconvenient. If you want a flight that's nicer, pay for it. Stop moaning about Ryanair."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "There was a charge to check in - which I attempted to avoid by checking in online but I didn't have access to a printer so there was a charge to print my boarding pass. A charge to check bags (since they wouldn't let us carry on - additional $70) there was no food (it was a 55 min flight so that makes since.) The seats were cramped and hard. And for whatever reason the landing was very hard/abrupt that people screamed. If I had the choice I wouldn't fly this airline again."
Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "They charge you for everything."
Pros: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "It was slightly cheaper than other airlines."
Cons: "The airport is terribly managed and crowded, very uncomfortable. The seats are tiny. Overhead baggage competition is brutal. They try to ding you for everything - there's a forty five euro check-in fee if - God forbid - you check in at the airport. Plus the flight was over 90 minutes late!"
Pros: "It was a steady flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "Staff was friendly enough"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. That's why the ticket price is so cheap"
Pros: "I like nothing, not even the price."
Cons: "It´s my first time and definitively last time flying with this type of cheap airlines, it was almost pathetic!"
