Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Cabin crew were competent"
Cons: "Over three hours late in taking off"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "Friendly staff as always, and more leg room than most budget carriers"
Cons: "They announced a 10 minute delay, which lasted for two hours without passengers getting any information, and had to take the bus a long way as the plane had somehow ended up at the other side of the airport. Then once boarded, we sat on the tarmac for at least 30 minutes."
Pros: "New Boeing Dreamliner plane was very comfortable. We successfully bid for an upgrade which was of course spacious. Most food and drink was complimentary."
Cons: "The movie selection was limited. If there was on board music I couldn’t find it. There are usb and power points so you can bring your own though. It was awkward to eat out of the meal boxes with little plastic cutlery."
Pros: "Excellent value flight to Seattle. Very helpful at check in. Brilliant plane."
Cons: "We choose not to pre-book seats or order meals as we felt both were expensive options."
Pros: "Nice and ckean airplane. Smooth travel"
Cons: "We didn't know our 11 hour flight didn't have food. And then when we try to order food, on the menu it's all just sandwiches. There's no option for hot food."
Pros: "Nice new planes"
Cons: "The food wasn’t great"
Pros: "Service and overall experience was outstanding."
Cons: "Only graded one star for last two as short ball NA"
Pros: "Plenty of lavatories"
Cons: "Food cost extra and it was horrible"
Cons: "I've been traveling to Europe and back for 40 years+. This is the first time I have ever had to weigh in my pocketbook along with my carry-on bag - that's outrageous!!! I realize that you are a discount carrier, and one has to pay for luggage, but this is ridiculous!!! You go to the extreme, and a women's pocketbook should not have to be added to the scale along with any other carry-on bags for a total weight of 10 Kil. That's extreme and very miserly in my opinion and not a positive refection on your airline!"
Cons: "The cabin crew didn't have any personality, and didn't look happy most of the time, a smile goes along way. When you look for a cost effective flight especially when flying with family including 2 young children you think it is good that the flight costs were quite good, however when you add in the additional baggage fees each way and the reserving you seats so you can all sit together the overall flight costs including the extortionate food prices on board makes them out to be much the same if not higher than that of one of the premium airlines that already include all those things in your flight cost. Not to mention when arriving home in Boston around 40 passengers bags had been left in London and there was NO Norweign staff available to help with this, it tool numerous requests from passengers as well as the flight services people to get a Norweign member of staff to come and help. SO there were a lot of unhappy passengers. I will be seriously considering whether i use Norweign any more in the future because of this."
Pros: "The boarding was stress-free and the leg room was excellent"
Cons: "Delayed by over 3 hours."
Pros: "I recieved emails informing me of possible disruption to travel to and from airport ie road congestion & weather conditions and recommendations to avoid delays which I thought was a very helpful service."
Cons: "We didn't pre order food but understood snacks could be ordered during flight. The sandwiches had all sold soon after we departed New York. We were lucky enough to buy the last fruit salad. We had nothing else to eat for the entire journey. We booked hand luggage only. Obtaining a boarding pass electronically for myself and my partner was impossible. On the fourth attempt I booked myself in individually and was successfully. I then booked in my partner successfully.We tried to go through departures armed with our boarding pass but we're refused entry. We were redirected back to Norwegian main check in to obtain a happy face stamp on our boarding pass which is obtained after the weight of the luggage has been checked. Unfortunately this means that instead of going straight through departures with hand luggage only we had to go to the main Check in anyway. I agree with checking weight of hand luggage but the process could be improved greatly."
Pros: "Quick flight. Good entertainment Quite spacious Quick boarding."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Not including food Staff aren’t as friendly as other airlines experienced."
Pros: "Modern newish plane & generally a good flight with minimal air disturbance"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before taking off although we landed only 35 minutes late. Would have thought some free drinks might have been served given length of the flight even if it is a budget airline. Room between seats is a bit tight."
Pros: "Economy Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Information about system for ordering food was very problematic. I was not informed that I needed to order food 3 online days in advance. I tried to order it while checking in online because I realised only at that point that it was likely I would have to order in advance...I was charged but did not receive what I ordered. One crew member was nice, the others were not. When checking in at the airport the staff desk attendant was very rude. Too many hidden costs. Paying for extras like food and luggage does not make the price economical."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, nice planes."
Cons: "Not knowing about no food provided but had to buy and book meals 72 hours in advance, which I couldn't do, as it was last minute. No blankets or pillows were provided - had to buy a blanket. No headsets were available, which also had to be purchased, but received text notification to bring my own."
Pros: "The flight itself was really good, smooth and easy. The staff were also very helpful. Good value for money"
Cons: "The plane hadn't been cleaned properly, there was still food in the pocket in my seat from the flight before. And they didn't bring the trash through nearly often enough which resulted in passengers leaving wrappers and cups on the floor. We were 30 min delayed as well."
Pros: "It was pretty cheap to travel but came with a lot of restrictions"
Cons: "Baggage allowances where very restricted and no headsets on airplane. Good choices where bad and had to pay for snacks and coffee."
Pros: "My seat was comfortable,bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Some not all of the staff was a tad bit cooler in demanor than was needed. Too much movement by other passengers."
Cons: "Boarding staff a bit unwelcoming"
Cons: "I fly routinely for work including internationally. I have always been able to carry on 2 pieces of hand luggage -- 1 small rolling bag and a personal messenger bag. I was surprised upon my return flight to be told I had to check one of my bags because their combined weight > 10kg. There was no problem with me having both bags for carryon during my departing flight. The return flight wasn't even half full, so there was plenty of cabin space for my rolling bag. Instead, this was a ridiculous policy of Norwegian so that they could ring some money out of me. I doubt I will fly with them again."
Pros: "Just all in all, a really decent flight. The airplane was clean and tidy, staff were polite and I was really impressed with the free wifi. The flight was comfortable and I was able to get a little power nap in before we landed!"
Pros: "I had a window seat..."
Cons: "Very confused as to why I was wasn’t told that I needed to pre order my meal.. On my way to London I got a meal included and on the way back I didn’t even get a bottle of water! Awful awful experience and will never be flying Norwegian again. , no matter what the price is!"
Pros: "The flight was on a nice modern 767, clean and I was lucky as a tall person I had no one next to me. So I was relatively comfortable. Tickets for a flight from London to JFK were very cheap. USB port to keep phone charged was nice, but whats the point with no WiFi available?"
Cons: "I felt this was a bait and switch offer. Cheap price offered, but no checked in baggage included nor any food and drinks or snacks. NOTHING. Flight attendants basically ignore you the whole flight unless you purchase on the flight or in advance. Very poor choice of movies, all old movies. And no WiFi whatsoever. All of these are major inclusions on trans-Atlantic flights, and were not visible when purchasing this flight. I thought it sounded too good to be true. To be honest, if this were all included up front, I couldve brought on-board food and drink for the flight. I dont like being nickel and dimed on everything. Charging over $50 for a checked in bag is ridiculous. At least if it were for $25 like every other flight, I wouldnt of minded."
Pros: "Norwegian is bare bones, but this flight on the Dreamliner is very comfortable. It ‘helped’ that the delay meant lots of people cancelled and there was a lot of spare space on board."
Cons: "It’s a long flight with no drinks... but with Norwegian you know what you sign up for! Water is $3. The 5 hour delay left something to be desired, but Norwegian texted me early so I knew not to head to the airport."
Pros: "Price of the ticket was good Modern plane Clean plane Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "The flight was full The seats in economy were small"
Pros: "Nothing particularly special."
Cons: "Arrived 4 hours delayed, and they always say due to weather to rid of any responsibilities. Flight had no food and had some insane safety warnings saying gathering in groups was not allowed. That's the most big brother thing I've heard in an airplane."
Pros: "Dreamliner was a very good place to be for seven hours. As budget airlines go Norwegian are the best we've used, amazing value to cross the atlantic."
Cons: "Film selection wasn't the best, but you can't have it all."
Pros: "Friendly Crew members"
Cons: "Not enough food choices. Limited entertainment."
Pros: "Booked this as was going to Denver direct and ESD a fair price. Generally well looked after."
Cons: "Not made clear that this trip did not include food unless purchased separately but spotted It day before so purchased our own to take on board. Was actually better as we had what we wanted and most importantly could eat/sleep when it suited us. Not offered any drink not even water but had our own. Nearly slipped up with baggage as did not purchase bags coming back as missed the point while booking. How many people book return flights and don't bring bags back? Should have been an 'are you sure' check."
Pros: "Very good seats and a new plane for good value."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work, ordering system didn't work. When my kid got a black eye from the spring-loaded entertainment system they didn't even have a first aid kit on board with a cold compress--shocking."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and helpful staff."
Cons: "Did not know that I would need to have my own headphones. Purchased rather poor sound experience headphones. Could not make my meal request change as vegetarian. Did not see that even when I booked the flight. Passengers should take their own light snacks and drinks after security."
Pros: "Newer planes"
Cons: "Paid extra to pick seats. Not to pick a better seat but just to pick any seat ahead of time so family could sit together-like a lot extra! Not good Norwegian. Paid extra for food. Not clear on site so didn't know that even on long trip overnight, you get nothing to eat or drink- not even water- unless you order it ahead online and pay OR order it on board and pay. And if you didn't order any food or extras, the crew pretty much ignored you like you werent there not good Norwegian Paid extra for baggage-and a lot! Sizes/weighs allowed for baggage is less than American air carriers and they charge you per kg for overage."
Pros: "Bigger windows, better storage, and the cabin pressure meant no jet lag. Cabin attendants were great. Amazing!"
Cons: "Other passengers: I can't believe how rude people are these days. No fault of Norwegian, though!"
Cons: "Showed up to my flight an hour before and was told I was late and booking closed... was told by another airline three hours later that an hour before I was able to change my flight for another time but was never told by Norwegian airlines employee. Not only did I pay $542 for a flight home that I actually never was on but had to pay an additional $1400 to get back home and getting home the following day. I would like a refund of my $542 since I was told the wrong information and was on time for boarding."
Pros: "Staff were helpful and friendly :)"
Cons: "No pillow or cover supplied. Food was an additional charge :("
Cons: "Late departure and terrible customs in Oakland."
Pros: "The boarding process with pretty seamless."
Cons: "No blanket or pillow provided for an 11 hour flight? No headset to watch entertainment? Why don't seats in front of toilets adjust but the ones in front do..thus squashing us in even further?! Why must we pay extra for drinks or snacks? Remember it's an 11 hour flight, fully paid for.."
Cons: "They did not have the vegetarian meal that I Pre ordered and paid for. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "The Dreamliner was lovely, seats comfortable with enough space The entertainment system was good, easy to use but USA biased of course"
Cons: "My expectations were high! So maybe that's why I am so disappointed. Should have been warned as the app is terrible, hardly ever works. OK we were delayed an hour, it happens. The food and drink service was awful. So very average hot meal 2 hours into the flight. Hardly "nice and tasty". If you're going to do the talk you got to deliver. Then nothing for 7 hours! Even trying to get water was not easy. I paid £50 for a bag and this terrible service. We get to Oakland and there's nowhere to dock! We wait 40 mi ms just to get out. More problems at Immigration There's no other flights but it takes over 2 hours go get through. This plane does this flight 4 times a week. Get it sorted. Could have been great. Couldn't recommend this service"
Pros: "Boarding by seat number made boarding go smooth"
Pros: "Comfortable and easy."
Pros: "The 787 dreamlike is great"
Cons: "Arrived late, I lost my connection, costing lots of money"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice as were the pilots"

Cons: "Loud passengers"
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Minimal leg rooml"
Cons: "Really hard to land past 10pm with 2 young children. Over 3 hours delayed."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Delay in boarding for no explained reason"
Pros: "Daniel the long stay car park bus driver a real gem. he told us where he would drop us off, to ask anything we did not know ( that is if we knew we did not know) and best of all he told us were to find the pick up point when we returned."
Cons: "I did not like going to the long stay carpark north terminal it adds quite a few additional minutes on my journey, I usually use the LtP in south terminal . Also very few spaces left in zone Z even at 6 am!!! I only had hand luggage and I could not see any escalators so I had to wait for lift which was daft. Then as I had already checked in had to ask where to go next...."
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Speedy boarding was shambles"
Pros: "It's easyjet so no expectations really"
Cons: "The delay and the fact I didn't have a seat because of overbook!"
Cons: "Overbooked flight"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "We waited 1.5 hour in the plane. They didn't even offer a glass of water. Also, they didn't let us take our luggage with us and when we went in there was a lot of space available in the cupboards above the seats."
Pros: "The stewards did a great job"
Cons: "That we had to wait on the plane for an hour on the Tarmac before taking off ."
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "Is it really necessary to charge for even water?"
Pros: "Quick simple process"
Cons: "Not very comfortable."
Cons: "Slow buses and delays getting on and off. Flight delayed by 30minutes. Luggage took an age to arrive"
Cons: "That we now have to pay for snacks, which were previously inclusive with the flight."
Pros: "the ticket fare is very reasonable."
Cons: "flight departure not on time."
Pros: "Liked? Price. Most staff helpful."
Cons: "Hectic 'security' check of cabin stuff. Lots of stairs at Marseille between aircraft & terminals"
Pros: "Not much it was cheap"
Cons: "Seems poor maitainane on the planes Delay on return resulted in arrival time after public transport had closed down and the chance of recovering additional costs seems remote Won't be travelling Easyjet for a long time"
Pros: "Not a whole lot to be honest. Was an okay flight, attendants were good though"
Cons: "The useless bus at ZRH to take us to the terminal because easyJet couldn't be bothered to pay to go direct to the terminal. #speedyboarding"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "No sucked"
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."
Pros: "It's nice to have some snacks and food available"
Cons: "There was no fresh food available that didn't have milk or meat. That is, nothing for those who don't eat animal products. Only peanuts, pot noodles, etc."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was canceled the information about the new flight was poor"
Pros: "It went fine. Did not have food though."
Pros: "great no frills airline"
Cons: "The chairs are not comfortable"
Pros: "Absolutely no information given by airline staff or airport staff."
Pros: "We had 2 hours and 45 mins delay due to technical issues as they had to change 3 aircrafts before we start boarding..."
Pros: "Good all round."
Pros: "Everyone can has to put liquids and cream into a small bag, which is so unreasonable. All my liquids are less than 100ml, they forced me to throw many things away! I never had any flight experience like this before!"
Pros: "Price, route, ease of check in. The self luggage check in at gatwick really a must in the upcoming modern airports"
Pros: "Price was very good"
Cons: "Flying to London and back both flights were delayed by over an hour, which was quite annoying."
Cons: "very long delay with no real reason given"
Pros: "on time, flight comfortable, super fast to exit airport after landing."
Cons: "Flight left super early. It didn't really seem that Gatwick processes passengers this early: - not many baggage drops open, long wait. - boarding of plain very disorderly. Stuck standing on air gate for sometime. Hadn't loaded disabled passengers first. It was hard for them to get through as other passengers allowed onto air gate."
Pros: "Easy and convenient"
Cons: "Clarity of front and rear entry instructions."
Cons: "26A for 1.85m guy. Not even a window. I thought i would die. Legs cramped."
Pros: "It got me to my destination efficently"
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed for 1h30min"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "The plane was 2Hrs late but this happens sometimes. Got there eventually all safe and sound"
Cons: "Having fully boarded the plane, and with no prior indication at all, it was then announced that we wouldn't be leaving for another 2 1/2 hours because of an air traffic control strike in Italy. Instead of allowing us to stay in the terminal, we sat in tiny seats for longer than the flight itself was scheduled to be, with no offer of any refreshments. The pilot who made the announcement made it seem like a minor inconvenience and got the times wrong twice. Of course the strike isn't their fault but their handling of it couldn't have been worse."
Cons: "The space between the seats are to small"
Pros: "I did not fly"
Pros: "i like the service"
Cons: "water free"
Pros: "Good flight, easy check-in, direct 4 hour flight"
Cons: "Seat not inclining."
Pros: "Boarding took forever and we were an hour late"
Cons: "Start boarding time 30min before it is set to fly instead of doing when we are supposed to take off"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Not having a 3+ hours take off delay"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "One of the very rare on-time, efficient and smooth flights with Wizzair. Check-in was fairly quick and incident-free, despite some of the other passengers reporting problems with the procedures and the staff. Boarding was quick and the flight actually arrived 10 minutes earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "As usual, the cabin crew is adequately polite, but not overly friendly, the food & beverage range is mediocre and overpriced at best and the entertainment is virtually non-existent."
Pros: "Extra legroom seats are a godsend (but that's applicable to any airline, not just Wizzair, although they do seem to have a few more of these than other airlines - low cost or not). Also, despite a 35 min. initial delay, we eventually landed only 15 min. later than the scheduled time."
Cons: "The boarding process at Gatwick was disastrous. There were only 2 agents, none of which spoke proper English. Also, one of them was busy checking each individual carry-on bag with unnecessary extra scrutiny, only to provide customers to the second agent, which was taking the payments for extra bags."
Pros: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."
Cons: "Staff could of been friendlier. They would not give me a cup of water and said i had to buy a bottle."
Pros: "I liked that we were not late and that the late coming priority guests were told to pay attention next time. Take off and landing were both nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow and we were somewhat late."
Pros: "The crew was so helpful and nice"
Cons: "I was happy with everything"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Cons: "Never announced for non-priority boarding, so many people were late to flight, causing delays. Much less than minimum leg room required for any normal human. Sat bolt upright with front seat digging into knees for 3 hours. Far from the cheapest ticket, but totally no frills, no food, no entertainment, limited baggage. Wizz Air mobile app barely works when required (for boarding passes, etc) Not enough room in overheads for all the carry on they allowed, had to sit with bag and jacket on my lap for flight, as no room under seat either."
Cons: "Did not fly. They wanted $100 to check my bag. I flew another airline."
Pros: "I liked how the crew on the plane worked. Very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the tedious boarding process when we were all herded into a very confined space. Also there was a cabin baggage issue that came up that might have been avoided if the new policy would have been made more obvious during the ticket purchase process."
Cons: "Unconfortable sears. The seats cannot be moved back. The table is too high. I have traveled a lot but never seen tables at this height (above the chest). No entertainment, no wifi, and no food, but that's ok. After all, it's a low cost floght although many other low cost companies have wifi and entertaonments via mobile devices."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and there was even no information about it. Gate number was changed after boarding time and we didn’t hear any appologize not even receive some meal vouchers or food on board. We arrived more then 1 hour later- I can not evalute this as a good service."
Cons: "Extra charges. £35 to check bags in"
Pros: "I asked for a cup of water for my child and they gave me a bottled water. Then they charged me 2.50 euros. Their credit card processing machine was not working properly, which was frustrating: the flight attendant got frustrated and had to come back again until she can process my payment."
Pros: "On time boarding, departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Better than Ryanair."
Cons: "Seats were horrible. Narrow, no leg room and awfully uncomfortable. Worse than easyJet."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 45 mins, and on board there was no water in the bathroom basins. This was known by staff, but they didn’t warn me as I went in, so I didn’t find out until I had already put soap in my hands"
Cons: "My husband was seated in row 2 and I was seated in row 29, even though there were many spare seats in blocks of two and three that we could have been sat in; then I was forced to put my carryon luggage in the hold, meaning I had to wait ages at the baggage reclaim on arrival, and was late for my air BnB check in. When I booked my flight I deliberately chose not to check any luggage, spent time planning what to take so that it would fit in a carryon bag, and measured out my liquids into small bottles so that they passed the liquids restrictions: all effort and time spent in vain due to Wizz Air. I was furious!"
Pros: "Mobile app is very good, but just allow you to download boarding pass on PDF version right at the moment of the check in"
Cons: "They didn't let me flight. Even that I did the online check in 24 hours before they didn't send me the boarding pass on PDF format via email. Also there were no way to download it from the mobile app or the website. I was in the airport 2 hours before and they didn't want to print it for me even that I showed all the online check in confirmation. They requested that I pay €35 Euro for the airport print. I submitted a complain and hope to get a credit or refund. Confirmation code: L3QZWB"
Pros: "So many crying children"
Pros: "Maybe the food selection and the price of it."
Cons: "I paid priority still wasnt able to board early and had to put my only bag under the seat."
Cons: "It a good option, a good price, i will fly again"
Cons: "Very long queues at boating in Charleroi airport"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Price and schedule. Going on time with no delays. Good value for money."
Cons: "Very hard on baggage policy"
Cons: "-Crew were very rude, check in crew and flight attendants -Luggage and checking in fees not advertised enough. Too many people getting their money stolen by Wizz Air. - Boarding extremely chaotic and not organized."
Cons: "Black group seemed to be singled out for more than one bag hand luggage but others were not. They were the only black group on the plane. Others let through with more bags 1ith no question."
Pros: "Crew were friendly! The app for the journey is good."
Cons: "announcements a little muffled. A delay caused us to wait on the bus for a good half an hour which was somewhat uncomfy, and the plane was very warm. couldn't take my shoulder bag on as well even though I could've put it under the chair, which I feel like is a sneaky way of making you pay for the speedy boarding thing."
Cons: "There was a mix up and the Wizz Air website did not work. Therefore, I couldn't check in a get my seats booked. I also could not prepay for my luggage so they overcharged me at the airport and had an attitude about it. My luggage was given three different prices quotes. I am very upset their website didn't work and they ripped me off at the airport."
Pros: "I liked that I got to my destination in one piece."
Cons: "The plane was creaky, there was a ton of turbulence, the flight attendants even got nervous which was very disquieting."
Pros: "Wizzair suggestion to compensate us"
Cons: "The fact that they didn't notify us regarding the cancellation of the flight, and moved us to an earlier flight."
Pros: "NOTHING! !!! VERY POOR wizz air!!"
Cons: "Hi. I don't understand why I have to pay £31.50 for check-in???!! Why nobody send me email with this information? ?!! I fly on the regular basis, first time I have to pay with poor wizz air!! If I know that - I will use Heathrow airport and British Airways for my flight to Riga! "Cheap flights " with wizz air : ticket -£73.00 + check-in £31.50 + coach to Luton £13.00 + coach from Stansted £13.00 + VERY POOR SERVICE! !!! NEVER EVER !!! My last time! !!! I will say to ALL my friends and posted in Facebook, Twitter and Instagramm! !! It's - ROBBERY!!!!!"
Cons: ""Wizard of Oz Airlines" I'm surprised the pilots didn't ask for another hidden fee! Please book a full fair on a major carrier instead of hidden fee fiasco at the airport. headaches before a flight. Keep in mind no wizz staff to talk to before flight or in Budapest. Private contractors from airport do all the check in process and departures."
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Cons: "Lots of hidden charges."
Pros: "Flight was on time unlike outward trip which was just under 2 hrs late"
Cons: "Very rude boarding staff on ground. Tried to charge me for the hand luggage but did put a small luggage sticker on when I didn't respond. Seats do not recline so most people slept on the pull down tray as a pillow."
Cons: "Boarding luggage no more that 32 cm, all comune boarding luggage are 34-38, they did on purpose to charge u €40 more on ticket, I saw at List 20 people charged for that."
Pros: "No food or entertainment on this flight,"
Cons: "I found the luggage allowance confusing"
Cons: "Basic flight. Rude crew and late flight"
Pros: "I like the bubbly upbeat attitude of the flight attendants interacting excellently in English and other languages and also how they dealt with an angry passenger."
Pros: "Nice new plane and caught up time even though it was late leaving left Luton late"
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Pros: "They robbed me saying low cost wizz sucks up airline Took my 30£ for not checking on line I already post on social media about it so the whole world knows about wizz suck airline in the world"
Cons: "Rude people on the counters racist cheating in the name of low cost never ever recommended to even my enemies that much cheaters robber other customers said is all lie"
Cons: "I ordered a ticket and got a confirmation email. Unfortunately I could not check in online. I arrived at the airport and found out that I did not have a ticket. This story cost me a lot of money and a lot of time"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly, priority boarding was super speedy and the food was served promptly (to my neighbouring passenger not me)."
Cons: "The seats were dirty and the plane could've done with a clean, plus I ended up with stiff knees because of how squished I was."
Pros: "There was no legroom, the sandwiches is missing (not available at all)"
Cons: "Onboarding was like for animalls. After we pass throug the gates, were sticked into the tunnel for 15-20 min in hot air..."
Cons: "The staff are snappy with the passengers - she tried to take my coffee away from me - this was my 4th flight in 36 hours so I needed to finish it so took it back quickly !!"
Cons: "Daylight robbery. I got charged 55pound for not checking in online 2 hrs before. I felt disgusted by this ridiculous amount as I had no idea. Really frustrated with your search engine and Ryan air for not making this very clear"
Pros: "There was nothing great about Ryan air. We flew with Flybe on the way back and it was a much better experience"
Cons: "Very disappointed with Ryanair and lack of communication from kayak regarding the checking in process. This was our first time to Europe and we booked a last minute trip to Dublin. We arrived at the airport 3 hours in advance to check in and allow time for navigation. We waited in line for an hour only to know that we were either supposed to check in online or upstairs at the airport. We had 4 minutes to check in when we got to the front desk. Staff was incredibly useless and did not assist whatsoever. We had to logon the airport WiFi and watch the video then missed the checkin by 1 minute. This is absolutely unacceptable. We were then directed to another service department for a 55 pound charge each! Which was the same as our original flight. I did not receive any notification email to check in ahead of time. This was a very stressful time for my traveling partner and I and do not feel obliged to be paying the consequences given the circumstances. I am hoping kayak will honor us as loyal customers and reimburse us for these unforseeabke fees. This would be greatly appreciated. I can provide receipt and documentation if needed. Thanks"
Cons: "We are a family with a three year old and have been separated by the allocation system."
Cons: "They made is walk around barriers carrying our bags slowly shuffling forward to get into the seated area in front of the gate. It took 15 mins . They could set up the ticket check inside the seated area so we could relax."
Cons: "Not good communication regarding delays-except from the pilot after we were waiting too long."
Pros: "Price; travel light, and take own food and it’s fine."
Cons: "Wait for the drinks/food service, and we would be on the way into land before they reach the middle of the plane on London -Dublin flight"
Pros: "I like nothing about Ryanair"
Cons: "I read their policy about checking bags four times to make sure I understood. The check in staff was rude and treated me like I was stupid. About half the people in line to check in also had to go to another line to pay the fee to check a bag, and go back in line to check in for the flight. Boarding was a disaster. The inflight service was them asking you to buy perfume. Not worth the cheap ticket - at all!"
Cons: "No pockets"
Pros: "Great trip, right on time, plane was clean, colors are a little weird, guessing some one is a Michigan football fan"
Pros: "The boarding system"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "A little late setting off"
Cons: "The gate # was never posted on the flight boards so we had to run to the gate when we happened to hear the boarding announcement. We had to pay 60€ at the gate for an "oversized" carry-on, which was standard size on all other flights. Priority boarding was announced then all the gate crew left, leaving everyone else sitting there. The plane and flight were fine (if you ignore the sales pitches for perfume, raffle tickets, etc), but I could have done without the stress leading up to it."
Cons: "Screwed up airport - if you're just flying through, Dublin is a MAJOR hassle. Had to leave the airport and go through security once again to connect."
Pros: "There is a large lounge at the gate at Gatwick that the passengers could have been checked into prior to boarding commencing, but this was not used. Instead, A large queue was in place for over 40 minutes and once boarding commenced, as many were checking cabin bags into the hold, boarding took about 30 minutes, delaying the flight by 30 minutes"
Pros: "But quick boarding glad I had priority"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you have to pay to sit with your companions. As a protest for this I refuse to buy any food or drink on the flight."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Good coffee (for £3)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. Looked like the crew were a bit overworked."
Cons: "Due to a malfunction on our previous flight's plane which resulted in a 3hr delay, we missed our connection flight on RyanAir. They didn't accommodate us at all and we had to purchase a whole new flight, that departed 10hrs later but couldn't check in for 8 hours to get past security. So we had to just hang out at Athens Airport for 8hrs with all our luggage and minimal services after traveling for 15hrs."
Cons: "I had to miss one of the legs of my trip to Dublin due to connection problems and struggled to find out if I could reschedule the flight. In the end I resorted to simply missing it and booked elsewhere as there were no tickets available on either Ryanair or your site.Ryanair need to be more accommodating of people who need emergency contact."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "It appears that all the flights are late. We ended up over 2 hours late. This has been occurring more frequently."
Cons: "Having to pay extra on top of fare to sit beside my own wife!!"
Cons: "I was charged 62 eu for my carry on. It was about 1in to tall."
Pros: "crew very professional and friendly and boarding was quick and efficient.."
Cons: "flight price extortionate......flight delayed by over an hour resulting in me missing my bus connection and having to wait 2 hrs at airport"
Cons: "Delayed a bit."
Pros: "Ease of use"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Cons: "self service kiosks were not working in airport and we were told it would cost 50 pounds each to print boarding pass. We followed directions to try to print on our own by paying for expensive internet service at the airport but still were unable to view & print boarding passes. After talking to several rather unhelpful reps, someone at the Sky Desk made an exception to allow us "free" boarding passes. This was just after 2 people were charge full price (50L each for passes & full price to check luggage, after they didn't get promised email to check bags online) Cheap fares doesn't make up for frustration"
Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "Loved the new plane and good crew, though we could not understand the announcer's English! Wild! They were nice enough, but the announcements were unintelligible. Not good in an emergency situation."
Cons: "As above the poor English from main flight attendant (purser?)"
Cons: "Charged €62 each for "not checking in online 4 hours or more before" when i thought I had checked in the night before via the email I received"
Cons: "£50 x2 charge for not being checked in We checked in 24hrs before hand but they said it wasn't on the system When we checked in we checked our bags in and choose our seats. Absolutely disgusting a £17 flight ended up over £200"
Pros: "Missed as flight from.larnaca was cancelled"
Pros: "Boarding was cramped and it seemed like they ran out of overhead storage fast but everyone got safely on and off the plane."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. No issues whilst on the plane."
Cons: "The website gives option for e-bording passes but the front desk wouldn't allow them. We had to use a printer/pay for internet to get our boarding passes printed. Then they didn't even use the ones we printed off. They printed off their own."
Pros: "On arriving at London, Gatwick, for our trip to Dublin, discovered that Ryanair wanted 105 pounds sterling for our luggage for the 3 of us. That was a surprise I did not appreciate as was not highlighted on their website when I made the reservations. Also, the lift to allow our daughter, in a wheelchair, access to the plane was broken and her Mom and I had to help her carefully and with a lot of effort up the plane 20 step ramp from the tarmac to the plane's rear door. Not fun at all. Rick Sickles"
Cons: "Sardine seating. Very poor "breakfast". Constant selling of deals"
Cons: "Crying baby"
Cons: "The airline ticket desk where we check in at the airport staff was extremely rude. They insisted that we must check-in online before the day of our flight, which we were not aware of or informed about this procedure. They then charged me $400 penalty fee for not checking in online prior to the flight (despite that I was not aware of this procedure). The airline ticket check in staff was extremely mean and rude with long lines of people waiting and almost missing their flights."
Cons: "Chair does not decline"
Pros: "The staff was helpful, I was not stressed out about couple of kilos overweight for luggage. On return they checked in my carry on free of charge. Flights were on time, efficient and no unnecesary delays. The overhead speaker was only so loud it would hurt my ears. Thank you!"
Cons: "The overhead speaker painfully loud."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "The very very long wait and queue checking in at Gate 11"
Pros: "Boarding from both sides of the plane was good"
Cons: "Made us wait in line for way too long, No air conditioning on the ground made the plane sweltering."
Cons: "The crew said there would not be drinks because of anticipated turbulence for the entire flight. There was NO turbulence."
Cons: "Do you have a hour!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Outward trip was delayed by approx 1 hour. Without any announcements or information. The return flight was just as bad, rushing everyone through to the gate waiting area just to be left sitting there for an extra hour."
Pros: "speed of getting on and off the plane"
Cons: "leg room"
