Airline reviews

Pros: "They are great at service and care of their passengers. Their staff always go out of their way to make sure of comfort. Loganair seems one of the few to still give a beverage and a snack with purchase of ticket (wonderful). I am super thankful of well trained staff and their knowledge on luggage and sizing on the smaller planes especially when traveling to and from larger planes. I never had any issues with being able to take my backpack on or being asked to check it as it carried my laptop & wallet...unlike other airlines of similar size running to & from SYY."
Cons: "That I could not find any Tunnocks Cream Wafers in a retail store to purchase after only the caramel wafers."

Pros: "Great service. Good food and drinks."

Pros: "great airport with great efficiency (Glasgow) wonderfully polite and friendly ticket agent"

Cons: "We were delayed by over four hours due to weather but still the flight that was supposed to leave after us got out before because they were more concerned about getting that flight out on time than the 20 people who had been waiting for hours. We ultimately got out about six hours late."

Pros: "Friendkiness"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "The light attended to help me with problems from prior flight"
Cons: "The propeller plane is noisy and uncomfortable. But it made it to Stornoway. Strong crosswinds made it a tough landing. The pilots did a good job."

Pros: "The staff was reasonably pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was four hours late. There were no announcements so passengers waited in a cold, damp terminal area where there was active construction. The peopeller plane was noisy and there was no storage. They had to check my small bag and then left it on the wet tarmac where my clothes were stained. FLybe is notoriously bad. They certainly lived up to their reputation"

Pros: "I can't give 5 stars for food or entertainment, but on a hop like this no one should expect them. Coffee was fine. 5 overall"

Pros: "Very quick flight :)"

Pros: "The staff handled everything really well. Continuously being updated to the delay reasons."
Cons: "Being stuck on a plane on the tarmac for 2+ hours, before being moved to a corridor, and then a bus, and then boarding a new plane. No information about delay compensation or refunds being given. No provisions for providing food or drinks for the toddlers/babies/children that had been kept on the plane for a couple of hours."

Pros: "That we got home"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed which meant I was over an hour late for my connecting travel. Delay kept increasing as I was waiting at Luton airport."

Pros: "Pilot got us there in less than an hour after a three hour delay"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was smooth :)"

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: "Extra cost for hold luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Ends up costing me ½ day of work around £500"

Pros: "Nothing"
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"

Cons: "Flight 1.5 hour delay"

Pros: "Comfortable. Large plane"
Cons: "I was not allowed my hand luggage on in the cabin on the trip down or return as was told the cabin was full. That is would go in the hold but it would be first off. So many people came on after me with much larger hand luggage! Also my bag was last into baggage reclaim both times"

Cons: "Very unpleasant person sitting next to us however that was not Easy Jets fault."

Pros: "The crew was nice"

Cons: "To many people that had carry ons which would not fit. Long wait to board the flight."

Pros: "The trip home was excellent, Everything from start of the journey to the finish was perfect."
Cons: "The only complaint would be the journey to Krakow, that was a bit scary dew to the fog and low cloud, the pilot had to abort the first landing and circle for over an hour. But that was out with his control."

Pros: "The ease of journey."

Pros: "Good value for money. As expected"
Cons: "Bag drop staff rude."

Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of rubbish on a stairway that no one removed. Totally ridiculous."

Cons: "Long walk at Kastrup airport!!"

Pros: "Sufficient service quick boarding and de-boarding. Captain kept us well informed"
Cons: "Needs a little updating"

Pros: "Crew always good."
Cons: "Delays, flight called way ahead of actual boarding and long delay getting off flight and in to terminal."

Pros: "Got from A to B, no fuss about bag sizes - symptomatic of them needing us to board quickly perhaps?"
Cons: "1.5 Hours late; a typical delay with easyJet No real apologies offer of refreshment vouchers, although there was regular updates provided Pilot interrupted sleeping cabin halfway through - at about midnight - with long update On Departure and arrival plane was located away from gate and the bus journey seemed to take an eternity - in Edinburgh in particular"

Pros: "Nothing"
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"

Pros: "Got to my destination"

Cons: "Flight delay"

Cons: "No entertainment options. Not a big deal."

Pros: "Staff were excellent. Very friendly and nothing was a problem."
Cons: "Everything had to be paid for. Not even a free drink of water."

Cons: "Pointless paying extra for priority boarding as both lanes boarded at the same 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."

Cons: "The area we were put in prior to boarding was just a continuous weaving queue and was quite crowded and stuffy"

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

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

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"

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

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

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

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

Pros: "Service good"
Cons: "LEG ROOM TIGHT"

Pros: "The pilot and safety tannoy is not loud enough"

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

Pros: "The price is generally good"
Cons: "Ryanair broke my bag and damaged my other bag"

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pros: "0"
Cons: "Being delayed an lied too"

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

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

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

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

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

Pros: "Cheap and convenient"

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

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

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

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

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

Pros: "Value for money, this was good."

Pros: "Everything was very good"

Pros: "Great staff, very helpful and quick with boarding, quick journey"
Cons: "N/A"

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

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Cons: "Still could do with just another couple of inches more space."

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

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

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."

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

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

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

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

Pros: "It was a steady flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"

Cons: "Was late almost one hour"

Pros: "On time"
