The check in was not good. I was unable to check in on line the previous day. I was rudely informed that I was late checking in and I was on standby. My husband and I were separated on the eight hour flight. It was very difficult to travel so long away from one another.
Multiple cancelled flights ended up cancelling the whole itinerary. Went on my own and booked directly the day of flight and am demanding full refund.
Improve gate boarding communication through better sound system and signage.
Free water and chocolate on board
Pros: "Loved this flight, crew was amazing!"
Cons: "The only company that constantly delays flights. Narrow and uncomfortable places in the business class. They waited 4 days for the suitcase! They are not responsible for receiving compensation for the delay in suitcases! Where to write and call?"
Pros: "Flew Business Class with miles program (United). Lufthansa always gives good basic flight experience. Watched two movies so saved some time at home. Lounges are getting better every time I fly. They are especially good, understandably, in Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nada. They get the job done."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage. Still waiting in my hotel."
Pros: "Great airplane. Very nice staff. Great service."
Cons: "My baggage didn't come on time. I have to stay at the airport for additional 3h"
Pros: "Very pleasant experience. Seats were comfortable! Nice to get a pillow and blanket at each seat. Also that the tv had a space for a USB plug!"
Cons: "Was told that an upgrade to premium economy entitled us to lounge privileges. Were told by attendants that we had to pay an extra $35. each. We had $6.30 subs from potbelly."
Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"
Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."
Pros: "Crew was personable and friendly"
Cons: "delayed boarding then waited three hours after we boarded for deicing. The piolet and crew did not update us. Made the flight very long."
Pros: "Great staff, amazing experience."
Cons: "No vegetarian food"
Cons: "Two flights delayed then no bags when we got to Chicago- disappointing and annoying. Great to arrive with no coats in winter!"
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Flight on time, crew was efficient even though the the flight was full."
Cons: "food. The chicken had a bad taste and smell to it."
Pros: "Good service.good movies.Good food."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delay for 45 minutes; unfortunately, it's becoming a trend at Lufthansa"
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "The attention to service. We traveled with an infant and Lufthansa staff was more helpful and attentive than any other airline we've filed with our infant in the past."
Pros: "The crew/ service was great & clean bathrooms on the flight"
Cons: "Terrible food quality. Zero leg space. The Newark terminal is ancient & fire alarm went off for over 20min before boarding."
Pros: "The food (breakfast) was great. The plane was clean. The whole operation was very orderly."
Pros: "Everything is great,will fly more with u people"
Cons: "No entertainment during the whole flight at all."
Pros: "The crew were very polite."
Cons: "Food could definitely improve, and so could the entertainment systems."
Pros: "The Quietness of the trip. Enough to sleep."
Cons: "There is no possibility for me ti eat. I have a sugerless diet without any aotmeel, rice, corne and other wheat. Just almendraflour is allowed and cooked vegetables and fruit and chicken and fish. I always have huge difficulties in flying intercontinental."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me on my right side was disrespectful and putting his head and legs up on my seat even after I told him not to do that and even spoke with the flight attendant. I felt uncomfortable with his behavior and the way it was managed by just telling him not to do that. I asked for a different seat but wasn't moved. For the price I paid for the seat and his behavior of taking up my spot and the empty spot in between us (he took up 2 chairs because he was laying down to sleep) I was very disappointed and uncomfortable during the flight."
Pros: "Crew very NICE. Customer service means a lot and they were wonderful."
Cons: "Old school entertainment system. A lot of hard tapping on the screen which bugs the person in front of you."
Cons: "Economy class felt like a punishment. It seemed like I was forever being reminded that the business and first class passengers were treated better. I'm not talking about perks like free champagne, but asking the economy class to enter the airplane from the rear using a lower standard stairwell ramp seems bizarre."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Cons: "Seated near and next to me were about 9 German men who had begun their vacation to Colorado in the airport bar prior to the flight. I was seated in a middle seat "J" (I believe) in row 37 or 39. The men were receiving from the stewardesses repeatedly two glasses at a time and kept going back to the galley and getting two glasses of wine at a time Although they were loud, congregating in the aisle around rows 37 and 39 they were not limited in what they could drink. The two on either side of me were disrespectful of my personal space and were very inappropriate. I got up and went to the galley behind my seat to ask the stewardesses to get me another seat. During this time the guys kept coming back to this galley for more wine still taking two at a time. The stewardesses explained that the plane was full. Others complained also. I then asked the stewardesses if since they were over serving these guys, would they trade one of their jump seats with me. At this point they cut the guys off and got the pursar. She talked to them and ignored my personal safety concerns and said no one gets on a plane drunk (yeah, right) and that they would now behave and were asleep. That's why they are still talking at the top of their lungs and standing in the aisle? I asked. I wish I had video recorded this, I did not as others with kids in the aisles across from me did. I hope their videos go viral Not impressed with Lufthansa"
Pros: "United is a good partner to Lufthansa. I like United. It was a quick flight, but a good one."
Cons: "The seats recline too much! The passenger in front of me almost immediately reclined her chair right into my face, making an irritable experience on a long flight for me. That is the only flaw in your service in my experience."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was late, probably the fault of destination airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very friendly. Everything went perfectly."
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Cons: "27 hours of delay. Nobody cared about our booking. Almost no service counters open. Worst airline service ever"
Cons: "Tight quarters for long trip"
Pros: "Very organized,professional ,nice.."
Cons: "Was delay a little bit,but this is not problem"
Cons: "My connecting flight was very close in time and even when I told a stewardess while I was exiting the plane, she made no effort to get me any help to arrive at my next gate faster. This resulted in my having to run to my gate after waiting on the long line at customs and I barely made my flight. Had I not been as physically able, I would have missed my flight even at my normal fast-walking pace. This should not have occurred- I should not have to run to my gate from one flight to another especially when I raised this concern to an employee of Lufthansa as well as a customs officer."
Cons: "Missed my conection flight I wil not recomend air canada or british airlines for anyone"
Pros: "Additional legroom"
Cons: "Business class should offer more in seat than empty seat between two coach seats"
Cons: "The screen was really close got me dizzy when I had to put my seat back to upright position for meal and drinks"
Luggage to be boarded are smaller than usual standard. This is unacceptable.
The flight boarding time was changed so many times and the passengers weren’t notified about boarding time until the boarding actually started.
Delayed connection and ensuing missed flight. Replacing
O voo foi cancelado quanto a gente já estava no portão de embarque, e adiado para o dia seguinte, sem explicação aparente. Foi uma confusão interminável até conseguirmos um lugar para dormir. A equipe da companhia parecia perdida, não sabiam o que fazer, e alguns eram mal-educados. No dia seguinte, chegamos cedo ao aeroporto e o voo foi adiado de novo. Péssima experiência, teria sido melhor pegar um trem.
Comfy, speedy and nice staff
It is a low cost airline so, like all is them it is more of a flying convenience store than anything else but for short flights you know what you have and it is fine
Cons: "Seat numbers, check in capacities"
Cons: "Crew would be better if they smiled a bit. They seemed tired and sleepy."
Cons: "No hassle cheap flights"
Cons: "More communication from ground crew when boarding the bus to the tarmac."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Airport, Crew, Bag Drop"
Pros: "4 hour delay."
Cons: "On time. At least vouchers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. As a very tall person, I was put in the backmost seat, which is the only row which doesn't recline."
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: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours delayed, we had to throw away our backpacks because the the crew said we could not bring them on. They said throw them away or you have to stay in Portugal and can’t go to Madrid. We missed our connecting flight. Worst flying experience I’ve ever had! No one was apologetic."
Cons: "Flight could’ve arrived on time."
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"
Cons: "Late flight and re allocated seats"
Pros: "Everything was smooth :)"
Pros: "The staff were friendly"
Cons: "The passengers were arse holes bit the crew dealt with it well"
Pros: "They were apologetic for the delays, which were out of their control due to bad weather They did their best to turnaround the flight as quickly as possible and make up lost time quiet flight due to time so no cabin crew coming back and forth all night for no reason"
Cons: "turbulence - again not avoidable time taken to allow us off the plane once landed - it would have been nice for us to get off quick after a long journey which was delayed bag damaged in transit as well"
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!"
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: "We had to pay 60$ for our carry on and it probably costed more than our entire ticket. I am so upset and infuriated at the fact that we weren’t warned in advance. The last easy jet flight we took a week ago we didn’t have to pay for our carry on."
Cons: "Crew very rude and not informative"
Pros: "I thought the crew members were nice. Probably because they feel like they have to make up for the fact they are required to completely rip off the passengers... I mean not to even provide free water..."
Cons: "This company will gauge you for money. It’s a complete joke. To check two smal bags they charged me $94 euros, which unfortunately I had no other option but to pay. The easy jet representative charging me for the bag check treated me like I was stupid for not checking the bag online. I didn’t know until late that I was going to need to check a bag... The flight boarding was completely unorganized. They shuttled 3 bus loads of people to the plane and had everyone board on either end of the plane, making it so people had to scoot past each other both ways to get to their seats creating a traffic jam. The biggest insult was they don’t even provide water unless you pay for it. All the food and drink must be paid for. Not only that they have a magazine for items you can buy while flying with them. It felt so commercialized and like a complete rip off. I will never fly with easy jet again. Oh and I forgot to mention, the plane was dirty when we loaded. There was a dirty tissue under my seat and trash in then compartment in front of me."
Pros: "Low price, clean, cheerful cree"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment, seats do not recline, and even a beverage must be purchased"
Pros: "Crewmembers were very nice. Offered me the emergency exit row more legroom"
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. I felt valued as a passenger. EasyJet seem to try to improve their process continually."
Cons: "Nearly every EasyJet flight I take is delayed. I know this can be beyond their control but I think scheduling is a bit tight. That said they keep you updated often and delay times go down as well as up."
Cons: "Paid for handsfree but wa t allowed a lap top size bag despite phoning to check and being told it would be okay"
Cons: "the three hours delay - or rather the 2.55hrs delay thanks to the super alwwdy descent we landed five minutes before being eligible for compansation. was great landing at 1.30am to no public transport"
Cons: "Being charged £49 for having toiletries in small bag"
Pros: "Spacious, speedy, friendly staff, things available for purchase"
Cons: "Only one bag allowed on cabin which is either carryon or personal"
Cons: "Long wait time for luggage to appear on carousel"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time arrival, nice and clean airplane!"
Cons: "Boarding halfway through was delayed, had to wait on the ground at Bristol for some unknown ground staff person to turn up before we could disembark"
Pros: "The crew and the pilot were exceptionally kind and accommodating- I got to see the inside of a cockpit!"
Cons: "A 1 1/2hr delay with no explanation (in fact, the check in agent told me there was a 20m delay when she obviously knew very well it would be an hour+ since the plane left Gatwick an hour+ behind schedule). Then being herded like cows onto the plane only to discover we'd have to wait another 1 1/2 hrs on the tarmac so that if we could get an earlier departure time we could take it and EasyJet wouldn't have to refund our tickets for wasting 4hrs of our lives."
Pros: "Sufficient service quick boarding and de-boarding. Captain kept us well informed"
Cons: "Needs a little updating"
Pros: "Nice and helpful crews"
Cons: "Flight was delayed three times, from 6pm to 8:40pm, and then after we finally boarded the plane we waited on the tarmac for another hour almost, before taking off. No compensation given - they could have at least provided some drink or snacks on the flight! The worst part is that there was very little information or update about the delay and new departure times until almost right before the actually boarding time."
Cons: "Flight delayed, gate changes twice. By the time I get to the new gate, doors are closed. Asked the desk staff for assistance given the gate change. Claimed they had no information and couldn't help. Said flight was already in the air. Flight actually departed an additonal 30 minutes after the original delay time. Cheap flights justify poor customer service according to easyjet!"
Cons: "We were a family of 4 traveling to Paris from Barcelona and had minimal luggage, yet the attendant singled us out and made us pay 60 Euro per bag to stow our carry-on bags. We had small book bags/purses and I tried to explain that they were our purses. She wouldn't listen. Our luggage was taken, we paid 60 Euro for 3 pieces to be stowed. Once we got on the plane, there were at least 14 people that boarded with a small roller carryon (like ours) and a backpack purse or small backpack. There was also plenty of room in the overhead bins as the flight was not full. In addition, one of our carry-on bags was torn apart by the time we arrived in Paris---the wheels were broken off and it would no longer roll. I am not sure why we were singled out when others had the same or much bigger luggage on the plane. Disappointed."
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "We rushed through the duty free shops because the sign said the gate was closing, but boarding had barely even started."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "I am a normal sized tall person. 5'11" and I was so uncomfortable. My knees were against the seat in front of me. I felt like I was in a straight jacket. It was terrible! I really know that I can subject myself to that again at any cost."
Cons: "Rude staff, no responsibility taken by the airline for delayed flights. Although already checked in and the board stated it was boarding we were told we missed the flight after waiting around in the lobby for hours. Apparently easyjet and the airport boards don't communicate with one another? Took 40 minutes to escort us back to the front of the airport then had to pay an extra 160 quid to change to the next flight. Coming back the flight almost landed on an unclear strip so we had to pull back up when we were very close to the ground which scared a lot of people. Felt like we were treated like cattle rather than people. Although our trip was wonderful everything easyjet related was awful. Parking price due to delays cost me a further 100 quid at Luton airport. Flight time is 45 minutes. We arrived 2 hours after the time we were supposed to arrive. Another couples bag was lost, 5-6 were told they missed their flight when they had not missed their flight and they also had to pay extra, extremely unhelpful."
Flight delayed by an hour. Crew were great; happy and friendly.
Flight boarded very late and then flight took off over 2hrs late. No food and drinks provided at airport despite law. Then before landing in Berlin, crew announced that the flight was so delayed that the airport was closed for landings and flight was diverted to Hanover. Flight crew stated over the PA that buses would be waiting at airport to take passengers to Berlin. In fact, no buses or help was provided and passengers were left looking for their own way to Berlin at 1am, when there were very few options Bad bad bad conduct
The price should be cheaper.
I was charged £45.99 for not booking priority baggage. All I had was one cabin bag. This error should have been flagged up prior to us boarding I felt aggrieved, not taken care off. Just before boarding to be stopped with baggage. Please make sure you tick priority baggage for any hand luggage/cabin bag 10kg.
There were no info about 55 eur thst I had to pay, I have back with same aircraft and didn't had to pay any fees, it would be nice if you could said before. Maybe I don't have anough money
It was exactly as I expect from a budget airline
Only relevant because it is the only direct flight.... otherwise terrible
It was late… the seat was so worn out I could feel the seat frame.
Very friendly staff at the airport and onboard.
Boarding and special attendance not managed well by ground crew. Also to late in general. After 90 Min. delayed boarding, it was found that technical repairs of the plain were needed before taxying. Immense waste of time for everybody, Ryan / Malta Air seemed to be doing it all for the first time. Not acceptable.
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..."
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: "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: "I like a few other people on the same flight were informed on checking in at Rome airport that we had no luggage drop. We were sure that we had paid for luggage for the return voyage. This meant that I was charged 80euros extra. Now obviously the site for booking did not. Make this clear or so many wouldn’t make the same mistake. I think the least that could have been done would be to charge 25 euros per bag. I my husband, brother and his wife will not travel Ryanair again."
Pros: "The pilot and safety tannoy is not loud enough"
Pros: "The price is generally good"
Cons: "Ryanair broke my bag and damaged my other bag"
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: "Very efficient."
Cons: "Long line; small seats."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "We were charged almost 200 euros extra because we did not check in online (which we could not do because we had been traveling for 30 hours and did not have Wi-Fi in the air) and when we went to check in the receptionist was rude about the fact that we had not checked in, so we had to go across to a different counter to pay our fee, go back to check in at the first counter, and then was told we could not be seated together, when it turned out the flight was half empty. Besides all of this, the planes are not nice, you are only allowed one carry on (no personal item) and the seats are not comfortable. I thought we would save money but check in fees and ridiculous baggage fees made this flight cost more than a nicer airline."
Pros: "Fast flight nice staff"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Cons: "Being delayed an lied too"
Pros: "Cheap and convenient"
Pros: "I not only had paid for 2 seats last night and paid for, but I also booked 2 bags and paid for them. In all E 37.50 per bag in cargo, then E 8 for each seat, AND I checked in both of is. Upon arrval at Athens airport, I was charged another E 62,50 for your failure to privode me with another boarding pass. Terrible,"
Cons: "Refund my trip. I will never fly RyanAir again,"
Cons: "Late from Passport control - wouldn’t hold plane for us - missed flight - no others that dat"
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: "Crew was patient and upbeat."
Cons: "Boarding time kept changing. I stood in line from 2:47 until I finally took my seat on the plane at 4:03!! If you are not checking luggage and the plane is full as was the case, you are made to stand in line because only the first 90 carry ons are guaranteed. The heat in the boarding area was unbearable. Then we proceeded to the boarding tunnel where we were made to wait AGAIN in the heat. I felt like a hostage packed into a tin can! Never in 50 years of air travel around the world have I experienced such an inefficient process. I will never fly Ryan Air again."
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: "Good price, adequate seats, space for our carry-on bags. No surprises!"
Cons: "Boarding involved a long wait standing in the tarmac in the sun."
Pros: "Reasonable seat space, good crew"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, no seat back pocket"
Cons: "Poor communication for the check in, passport control and boarding. Flight delayed with no communication. Landed late and then delayed again and had to wait 40 min to deboard the plane. Missed my connection costing me an extra 60 euro to get to my final destination :( they don't care!! I read reviews that this airline is habitually late. I assumed people were just being hard on them. Nope! I will either avoid this airline or assume an extra 2-3 hours of wasted time anytime I fly with them!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "Still could do with just another couple of inches more space."
Pros: "I sat in the front row and had plenty of leg room. A crew member kindly switched my middle seat for his window seat for which I was very grateful."
Cons: "Ryanair did not offer any food or beverage for "free" (i.e., included in the price of our ticket). It was a huge hassle to get our boarding passes printed. We needed to do this in order to be spared a €50/person penalty which I think is outrageous. Boarding was a little intense."
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: "It was a steady flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
