Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "My seat was sagging in from use. And some men were standing in the aisle, talking loudly and laughing while I was trying to nap. The staff did nothing about it."
Pros: "The staff was really nice and on time"
Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "Crew was very informative and honest about all the extra fees there are with easy jet."
Cons: "During Boarding there were two entrances, from the front of the plane and from the back. The crew misdirected passengers and passengers with the lower seat numbers boarded from the back. Passengers with higher seat numbers boarded through the font entrance. Getting to your seat felt very crowded."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "I don't like the boarding procedure and I have problems with the legroom between seats. But then it's a no frills airline and the price was attractive."
Pros: "Not a lot! Crew was okay but it was cramped and hot. And speedy boarding is pointless when they put you on a bus. You pay to beat the crowds!"
Cons: "more space, less heat."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Friendly. Extra leg room for free. Nice company in plane"
Cons: "2 people were kicked off the plane because they were drunk and called the flight attendant FAT BOY. not only once ! i can still see the flight attendant quite distressed. It’s absolutely horrible to see these things happening more and more often. The police have arrested them and thank god we weren"
Pros: "EasyJet are generally efficient and feel like they have the passenger in mind."
Cons: "Not sitting cooped up in our seats waiting 45 minutes for a slot."
Cons: "I missed my flight and no one answered when I tried to call through kiwi"
Cons: "Boarding was chaos"
Cons: "Too crampt. Food like cardboard."
Cons: "Airport - took way way too long for security. I had to rush which was v v difficult as I have a Prosthetic right leg!! Plus security took away my aftershave but yet allowed a lady to bring in a 500ml skin cream!?!?"
Pros: "Don’t sit in Window seat 40A. Smallest on the plane."
Pros: "Seat wasn’t that comfy"
Cons: "Boarding process is suboptimal to say the least."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and a far better experience than EasyJet's competitors"
Pros: "Did not take this flight- had to be rescheduled on a different airline because of a missed connection."
Pros: "Friendly crew, arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Seat wouldn’t recline."
Pros: "Flight from US got delayed and easyJet charged us full fare for next day flight."
Cons: "Flight from US got delayed and easyJet charged us full fare for next day flight. Really bad services and policies. Should have gone British Airways."
Cons: "I missed this flight because my Norwegian flight from Oakland to Gatwick was delayed"
Pros: "I am certainly purchasing speedy boarding again. Stress free!"
Cons: "Out of easyJet's control but air strikes in France resulted in an hour and 20 delay on the tarmac. The pilot was nice enough to let passengers view the cockpit which was a good way to help pass the time."
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Speedy boarding was shambles"
Pros: "It's easyjet so no expectations really"
Cons: "Late take off with very poor info in the airport. On the flight it was impossible to tell what that air hostesses said. Apart from that it was Ok."
Pros: "The check-in and boarding were cery quick"
Cons: "The place seats were a bit dirty"
Pros: "The option to have an early boarding for not too high a premium was good for me. The flight crew was good, we were kept apprised of the schedule, weather, etc. Arrived early and comfortable enough."
Cons: "Even in the front "chosen" seat the spacing was tight."
Pros: "Staff were lovely and very attentive, and frequently passed through with bags to collect rubbish so you didn't have to sit with it for hours. Overall it was a relatively comfortable flight despite being a bit on the cramped side. A female crew member handled a disruptive group promptly and very calmly during the safety demonstration which others may have just ignored."
Cons: "Seats don't recline and padding is very thin. Food is overpriced (£2.50 for a tea, £14 for bacon roll and drink with "free" crisps) brought my own food so wasn't an issue but it was extortionately priced and put me off buying any other snacks or drinks. No entertainment. Unfortunately boarding was late and a bit chaotic, which led to a half hour wait after flight restrictions were placed."
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike but i wish there was more organization when it came to the flight delay and the boarding process."
Cons: "I have never been on a flight that didn't allow a carryon bag and some kind of bad to tuck under the seat ahead of you. There was room for my small backpack but because I had a carryon suitcase to go in the overhead bin, they made us check that bag and pay a very hefty fee."
Cons: "The easyjet app is really not good. I only received updates through Kayk app on my phone about delays that were constantly increasing and decreasing in time. At one point, there was a delay for 1.5 hrs, but suddenly, the delay changed to just 30 minutes. If I hadn't of had my other app, I would have never known. Secondly, the easyjet app didn't save the fact that I had checked in. This caused an issue when I wanted to access my boarding pass getting onto the plane. I tried to see it, but the app said my plane had taken off and so I couldn't access it and therefore, wasn't sure of my seat number. Next time, I'd just appreciate a paper boarding pass because the issues that occur on the phone are too numerous."
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "3 hours late! Horrible on time service."
Cons: "they over booked the flight and i couldnt fly out to the next day."
Cons: "EasyJet flight departed two hours late and caused me to miss the last Rhônexpres train. I therefore had to take a taxi, which cost me 80 Euros!"
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time even though I had received a message earlier in the day that the flight was delayed."
Cons: "The extra costs associated with flying EasyJet.. the flights aren't that inexpensive to begin with and then every little thing costs extra.. it's kind of annoying."
Pros: "Bag drop very quick. Service friendly and efficient ."
Cons: "A lot of speedy boarders so almost defeated the object of prebooking but still better than not having speedy boarding."
Pros: "Mostly one time and fit my budget"
Cons: "Asking passenger to fit the laptop bag in to the cabin baggage is ridiculous when you know that it will be taken out after boarding"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Pros: "For a short trip it's fine. Price is right, the staff is cheerful, shuttle buses took us to customs very quickly. The bag drop system is very efficient."
Cons: "You know what you get with this airline: no frills, tight spaces, and you board and deplane outdoors (in a downpour in London)."
Pros: "Great at moving lots of people everyday so the whole transportation part is honed experience of getting people on and off aircraft efficiently to keep busy schedules on time."
Cons: "Walking off the plane onto a bus and waiting. Only getting our baby stroller back at baggage claim meaning someone has to carry the baby on top of hand luggage. Other airlines have the stroller available as you get out of the plane."
Pros: "Once on board, evertything was ok"
Cons: "Easyjet lost my babys baggage and the stuff didn't cooperate with me or emphatize at all with my situation"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the staff were very pleasant! The flight was very smooth hardly any turbulence at all!"
Cons: "I was put in the awkward situation of trying to stuff my handbag in my carry on suitcase because apparently with eastJet you can only bring one bag on not even a small hand bag. Unfortunately my friend had a backpack and could not fit it in her carry on suitcase and we were then charged an additional £45. EasyJet should make it more clear that only one bag is allowed on the flight as many people were not aware of this and everyone had to open their bags and try to stuff everything into one bag. Unsure why this is a rule as most other airlines allow a carry on and a small handbag considering the space by my feet was empty because I had to shove my handbag/purse in my carry on which was stowed in the hold anyways because they did not have enough room for it. Very disappointed and will never book with EasyJet again."
Pros: "It went fine. Did not have food though."
Pros: "great no frills airline"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1.5 hours on the runway. We were told we would receive a free beverage and snack however the cart never made it down to the end half of the plane so we couldn't even get a drink of water for almost 4 hours until we landed. The crew did not name any apologies and a woman in the row next to me pressed the assistance button to ask a question and they completely ignored her until we landed."
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!"
Cons: "The answer I heard from the guy in the airport : "they should have tell you this in Israel"."
Pros: "Nothing we booked because of flight time but was not worth it"
Cons: "They charge u extra for your carry on we were flying internationally which allows u 1 suitcase 1 carry on and a hand bag easy jet only allows I carry on charges for suit case and hand bag would not take ever again u have to pay for food too"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Boarding seemed unorganised and messy. No snack"
Pros: "Easy and convenient"
Cons: "Clarity of front and rear entry instructions."
"The one thing I must say is that the flight wasn't full at all, and in this case, I'm really unsure why they wouldn't sit people farther from each other."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Let me know by mail to check in before I got to the airport and save me 35 euro"
Pros: "- the food trays of seats of the plane are in such a way that you can lay your head on them and sleep. It’s really the most comfortable of all Continental flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "- on board WiFi -"
Pros: "Fast and smoothy check in"
Cons: "After arrival to budapest not platformy ready and waiting over 10minutes"
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "You must check in few hours before the flight. Checking in at the airport will cost you 35€. Besides that, the boarding took almost 40min and the seats are not comfy at all. That said, i would rather pay extra $50 and fly with normal company."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and I cannot complain about that."
Cons: "Budapest airport has tricky terminal for the Wizzair planes. You have to go outside the main terminal to get to the Wizz terminals and then you have to go outside again to get to the plane. It was really weird but I understand that as it is a low budget flight provider. The thing that made me really upset was that we all (passengers) left the terminal to get to the plane and we had to wait outside till we could start entering the plane. I really don’t understand why someone made us to wait outside while it’s freezing cold when the doors are not open or plane is not ready. That was unreasonable and ruined my trip."
Pros: "Good flight, easy check-in, direct 4 hour flight"
Cons: "Seat not inclining."
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "It's the cheapest you can get"
Cons: "They split me and my wife on porpuse to force me to buy the option to choose my seating. The leg space is tiny and the chairs won't recline so it's super uncomfortable. Flight times are shitty. Te leave early in the morning so you can barely get some sleep at night. Nor on the plane. They don't any serve food or even water and let you dry up. You can buy overpriced food and beverage onboard. My purchase from the duty free was stolen and they didn't help me handle the problem. Awful experience."
Cons: "Flight was over booked"
Pros: "Overall experience was good. Boarding was fine and onboard crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and there is not a lot of legroom, especially if you are over 180 cm."
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."
Cons: "Staff could of been friendlier. They would not give me a cup of water and said i had to buy a bottle."
Cons: "Delay on departure and no bus at arrival"
Cons: "Both flues were really delay really disappointed"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Pros: "Courteous crew, polite and knowledge. Just wish they wouldn't talk so fast over the tannoy! :-)"
Cons: "To find a way to enforce people to only put their baggage in the compartments above their own seats. If i choose a front-row seat, I find that other passengers have filled the compartment despite sitting nowhere near the front. Given that you pay the most money for front-row/extra leg room seats..."
Pros: "On time without any delay"
Cons: "1h 45 minutes waiting for luggages in Bucharest Otopeni. Still not delivered."
Pros: "Flight arrived"
Cons: "Flight left vaguely late, air stewardess disappeared into the cockpit for 50 minutes. Hmm, I wonder what she was doing in the cockpit. Whatever she was doing she wasn’t helping the cart so I only got my food 20 mins before landing approach. Air pressure was weird too, nice American lady next to me had problems with her ears more than usual."
Pros: "Clean aircraft with good on board staff. Flight departed on time and arrived early. Overall they are good value for a low cost carrier."
Cons: "Wizz are a bit disorganised at bag check in, disorganised with overhead storage. Don't like the random seat assignment used if you don't want to pay the high price for assigned seats."
Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The borsing from terminal 1 is should be highlight The man in the check in and bording wad not nice at all. He didn't answer any question. They took our hand bag. We couldn't take it to the plan and no one explaon why."
Cons: "Not even a roll for a 5 hour flight! They ran out and then wanted to charge £3.50 for a coffee when they ran out of food to even buy! Staff were not friendly at all."
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Cons: "Flight delayed by more than 2 hours, additional 40 minutes in the plain before departure. At least 30 minutes until doors opened. Overall huge delay that totally killed my business day."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. I missed my train home to Ipswich. Long journey home ver late at night"
Pros: "2 hours delay. Not much one can do about this. The flight was good in general, 3* only due to the delay."
Cons: "2 hours delay. Not much one can do about this. The flight was good in general, 3* only due to the delay."
Pros: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Cons: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Pros: "Excellent pilot"
Cons: "long time wating in bus to get plane"
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Plane was late and all passengers had to wait at the gate. Too many people for such a small area for that length of time."
Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."
Cons: "So cheap."
Pros: "The flight was cheap and got you where I wanted"
Cons: "Make sure you queue early if you want to take your hand luggage on board, as if you are too late in the line they will make you check it into the hold at the last minute. I guess I should have realised that by how early people started queueing and the fact that they charge for checked in luggage."
Cons: "The airline does not have kiosk check-in. You are checked in automatically, and if you buy through a third party, your boarding pass is emailed to you. Never having flown this 'unique' airline before, we did not know the process. At the check-in desk, the clerk told us that if we couldn't show him our boarding pass, he would charge us 30GBP to print them. He was a complete jerk. After no help from him, I was able to figure out that we did have them as attachments. Never again."
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: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The fact that they have small carry on allowance (free) or with a 7cm difference in width a "large carry on" allowance . To be safe I purchase the extra allowance for large carry on which I paid £19 for on my outward journey. When clearing the check-in gates on my outward journey in London the check Inn clerk informed me that I did not have to pay the large carry on allowance. According to her in my bag but it's been classified as small. On my return journey I decided not to purchase the carry on allowance and I was told that I should have purchase it online instead I had to buy it at the airport at a premium. I won't fly with Wizz Air again."
Cons: "Crampt seats, mob to board the plane, hour delay with no reason given."
Cons: "Never ever gonna choose Wizz air ... not a frist time I had to pay extra because of the suitcase ... But this is happening always on Hungary not in London."
Pros: "The crew in the plane"
Cons: "The quality of service in the boarding, Modified types of cabine bags, practically you have to bring one change of clothes an nothing else in order to fit for the standards of the "small cabine luggage" . The boarding crew was very rude"
Pros: "We landed in one piece"
Cons: "I didn't receive my online check in details so I couldn't check in. I was abroad so chasing up details I should have been provided with / were never told that I should have, were not on the top of my to do list. I only found out that I had to check in online and that I hadn't been provided with these details when I arrived at the airport. I spent 30 minutes on hold before the problem was rectified and I was given my online check in details but it was now top late to check in online (by 5 minutes ). The flight was delayed due to a number of things - a late arrival, people being let onto the plane slowly, people not sitting down and allowing the plane to taxi and leave. This had a knock on effect of making the plane land late and for me to miss my connection (train) so basically through last minute.com not providing me with the correct details regarding the flight and the flight then being delayed it tripled my whole journey back home."
Pros: "No food or entertainment on this flight,"
Cons: "I found the luggage allowance confusing"
Pros: "I use Wizzair very often .flight is always good.Pilots and crew are very well experianced.so if turbulences there is still trust in flight crew .today is very misty and cloudy in London .Very good landing in these bad conditions.i want to Thank all team of the crew."
Cons: "Turbulences.It is sad that wizzair charges very high cost large cabin bags (especially on holidays time is bags different price than other months.)but other companies as Easyjet and ryanair allows one big and one small bag for free on board"
Cons: "Tried to check in online was unavailable the system upon arrival they charged us an extra €105 it's theft"
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: "Seats far too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Timely departure and quick boarding."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and staff was not exactly tentative."
Cons: "Kayak sucks. I chose to buy ticket w kayak and took me to vayama (another horrible site). The ticket they sold me, which was not cheap, didn’t let me check in online and didn’t say that I was gonna have to pay 200 euros at airport to check in 2 bags!!!! A disaster everything."
Pros: "Nothing. This was poor service from every stand point, starting from punctuality. Almost 2 hours delay and almost lost my connecting flight in Barcelona"
Cons: "Change management"
Pros: "Kayak never sent me a confirmation of the purchase kd the tickets. We arrived at the airport (family of 7, with 3 kids) and the reservation was non-existing. We were not able to board the flight and had to buy another ticket at a much more expensive price in addition to losing an entire day in paris"
Cons: "Kayak never sent me a confirmation of the purchase kd the tickets. We arrived at the airport (family of 7, with 3 kids) and the reservation was non-existing. We were not able to board the flight and had to buy another ticket at a much more expensive price in addition to losing an entire day in paris"
Cons: "Was an hour late."
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Over three hour delay for mechanical issues! Also, check in was a big pain. Bought tickets through vayama. Not recommended."
Cons: "There was nothing about the trip to like. I still have not made it to Agadir. The flight in Denver was delayed two hours, causing my family to miss all connections. This I turn required me to fork out $1000 additional to make it to my final destination."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "I have not gotten my baggage for my flight I have been here 3 days after I landed"
Pros: "Good but not the delay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my coach from Barcelona to valencia and had to pay €34.50 for another ticket can you please try to refund me this money."
Pros: "The crew are so helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Our flight was ridiculously delayed due to fog no fault of the airline but the communication was terrible"
Cons: "Seats are like deck chairs with no leg room"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Barcelona"
Cons: "Extremely poor service by the cabin crew. They were extremely lethargic and slow with service. So much so that numerous rows of seats with young families were never served. No announcement or apology, they just stopped serving as they needed to prepare to land. They knew from the start how long they would have to serve drinks/snacks but didn’t care and definitely did not go out of their way to ensure everyone would be served. The worst service or total lack of that I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Staff and smooth fligfht"
Cons: "Really long delay with hardly any information of when takeoff will be"
Pros: "we reached our destination alive"
Cons: "We sat on the aircraft on the tarmac for two hours, no explanation. Food and drink were served 20 mins before landing, some people didn’t get a chance to have a drink. Staff were disorganised confused and rude. My debit card was handed to another passenger because the steward had no idea what he was doing. Beyond awful!"
Pros: "Seats were clean"
Cons: "Delayed flight which lead to then sitting in the plane on the runway awaiting a time to take off. Flight attendant didn’t serve the back half of then plane with drinks. Luggage Carousel kept changing."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "Nothing.... Very poor. Generally Vueling has a poor image but I took a chance nothing has changed"
Cons: "On board the plane I was told you have to pay for all the food drinks quite abruptly maybe because I had shorts on and a tee shirt the lady in question thought I did not have much money.....Never go by how somebody is dressed that's my advice to your airline staff...."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else. This was the worst plane experience ever. The flight was super super delayed (as were several other Vueling flights) and we stood in the bag drop line for over 2 hours because there was no system and everyone was confused. Then when we finally got through they updated the flight status every 10 min confusing everyone cause the time kept changing and no one knew what was going on. Then they finally posted the gate and we had to run to the other side of the airport and then they delayed the flight again so it was over 3 1/2 hours delayed In the end. Then boarding was a mess and the plane itself was pitiful for how expensive that flight was. This is never going to be a company of choice for me. Definitely a last resort."
Pros: "Crew and Flight attendants were helpful, responsive and cheerful before, during and after the flight."
Cons: "I was not able to check into the flight online as the Kayak link sent me to an unknown page. It was not an Iberia flight but was operated by Veuling airlines, however was still unable to check in by going directly to the Veuling website. If you're not going to be allowed to check in online, that is one, thing, but it isn't great to be given a link that doesn't work and then be nervous that you are not going to get on your flight. The boarding process should be changed as it is a free for all and people are waiting in line on the jetway, when really they are waiting for the buses. I believe the plane was at Terminal 2, so we had to switch terminals via bus. Just seemed as though there should be a better process for boarding than lining up down the middle of the terminal or manage the process differently as we were boarding buses."
Cons: "At the check in gate the man made us pay for the luggage we carried on the plane"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Vueling—couldn’t figure out how to have us pay extra money for overweight bags It took us almost an hour to get thru the line bc our bags were too heavy, then the agent couldn’t figure out how to charge us for the extra $, so after 15 min, they just let us go without paying Then, it too forever to get thru security THEN, our flight was delayed, but they still told us to go to the gate and board, even tho there was no crew yet And then, we had to go down 2 flights of steps to take a bus to the plane and then take a flight of steps up to the plane. Then, our seats were dirty with cups and garbage Then the captain said we needed to refuel. Said it would take 5 more minutes but it was more like 25"
Pros: "Safe flight, good leg room"
Cons: "Delayed departure, delayed boarding"
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Plane took off an hr later, not many vegetarian or vegan meals to choose from, my legs didn’t fit in my seating area..."
Cons: "I was told that my carry on luggage was too big for the overhead bin and had to pay 35 euro. The flight attendant attempted to fit it in the bin and it fit just fine. So thanks...I paid for something I didn’t have to."
Cons: "Very little legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours was unable to catch my connecting flight in London to Barcelona. Had to buy another flight ticket in London, wait another day, pay for a night a hotel to get to my destination in Barcelona. I was supposed to arrive in Barcelona on Saturday April 1st and did not get there until 2 the following day. Will not use this service again."
Pros: "It was comfortable, clean and efficient."
Cons: "The crew didn’t know f they had any vegan food."
Pros: "Furious, Vueling is always late!!!"
Cons: "Always late,, they don't care!!"
Pros: "Staff were fine, lovely to check in online and not have to worry"
Cons: "Once onboard we sat for nearly an hour going nowhere"
Pros: "Excellent check in . Before time arrival."
Pros: "Comfort and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Everyone told to board at the same time but they no one being boarded for over 30 mins. So left just standing in a long line for ages. Why tell us to board before you’re ready to board anyone? And why all at the same time and not groups of rows?"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Everything else! Where am I supposed to put my legs?"
Pros: "I like very much weather of Barcelona which is ideal for me.people of spain very cooperative with excellent attitude."
Pros: "The low price and civilised flight times. Had no hold baggage."
Cons: "Attempts to get extra money by not allowing check in before 7 days without paying extra for choosing seats."
Pros: "Left on time !"
Cons: "Could not buy a beer as they “ran out” of alcohol! Cramped seats and could not position myself comfortably as just no leg room."
Cons: "Everything was Ok, staff, ladies are elegant and pleasant. Planes are on time. Could not be better"
Cons: "It was so uncomfortably cramped on the back row that my knees were numb by the end of the flight. I am tall but not ridiculously so. I think there should be minimum standards for legroom that exceed what was available on this flight."
Pros: "Spacious, punctual, friendly"
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Cons: "2h delay for an already late flight. landed at 2am."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Flat out the worst flying experience I've ever had. The bag checkin processes was a nightmare; I showed up super early to the airport, with more than enough time to check my bag and board without issue. The bag checkin line didn't move for over an hour, and while there were still tons of people waiting to check their bags for flights that were soon departing, most of the counter employees packed up and left. When someone pointed out that we would miss our flights, the attendants said "my shift is over" and walked away. At this point, the line broke and passengers started to cut the line, two people nearly got into a fight, airport security even had to come. My bag was finally checked five minutes before the flight left (!!!!!). I was unsure if I'd make the flight, or if my bag would make it on the aircraft. The worst part is that throughout their incompetent checkin processes, the attendants were all incredibly rude. I am NEVER flying this airline again, even if I have to pay twice as much for my ticket."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants were courteous and polite."
Cons: "Our flight left 20 min late but we landed on time so it wasn't terrible."
Cons: "Very very small amount of legroom Flight was delayed c.90 minutes, there wasn't a lot of information and eventually were told they had to use a different plane, which may have explained it's quite poor old condition."
Pros: "Efficient way to get to Paris"
Cons: "Small. Narrow seats. Late flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hs, they kept changing the departure date with no explanation over and over again. about3 0 ppl couldnt even get on that plane. a complete disaster."
Cons: "Everything from the waiting time to boarding"
Pros: "Don't know I slept."
Cons: "They were get 6th disorganized at check in and boarding."
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."
Cons: "Was late for 1.5h"
Cons: "Take off and arrive on time not an hour late. No trumpet this time."
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 !!"
Pros: "The crew and the timeliness of the flight."
Cons: "The level of comfort. Pretty terrible airplane seats, but are tolerable if you’re doing a short flight."
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"
Pros: "No alert upon booking that any bags whatsoever are included in the price. We ended up paying to bring bags onboard and check bags. Turning a reasonable flight into a very expensive one."
Cons: "There is no Ryan Air ticket counter. Only a bag drop. Be prepared to get the complete run around. We can 3 hours early and thank god."
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."
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"
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours before the flight. No gate info available for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes it said gate info would be in 20 more minutes. After that 20 minutes they said another 20 minutes. There was no info on the flight and you have no place to wait until they decide to tell you where your gate it. When the gate info finally came up it said to report to the gate immediately and then we were supposed to board. Basically you are forced to stand for 3 hours not knowing anything about the flight."
Cons: "The heat in the cabin was way too high"
Cons: "No pockets"
Pros: "The boarding system"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Polite cabin staff."
Cons: "Delays, no information given until After entering the gate area, and even then not until after we should have been boarded. Not enough information and not clear when eventually given. Tray table and back of the seat in front were both dirty, dried on spillage from a previous flight."
Cons: "A little late setting off"
Pros: "Great service, friendly crew. Smooth flight"
Pros: "There is reallly nothing to like. It’s just a flight similar to a bus ride."
Cons: "It’s a low cost no frills airlines. It’s just like riding on a bus, so there is really nothing positive above t th experience. The worst part is the lack of directions to check in bags. At Gatwick, I had to pay for my bag in a completely different location and being the receipt to the counter. The website was ambiguous and it appeared as if one bag checked was free. Of course, that’s way too optimistic because nothing is free on the bus...I mean Ryan Air."
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: "Trying to work my way threw the line to board as I had priority boarding. Had to pay for water even in priority. Can't see why I paid for priority. No leg room in priority. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Good coffee (for £3)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. Looked like the crew were a bit overworked."
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!!"
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."
Cons: "The lady at check in was rude. Also how she wanted to charge us 140 pounds because our luggage was over in kilos. So we removed everything to lower the amount only to bring the items onto the plane anyway. Then there was hardly any room in the over head compartments for everyone to put their things. very counter intuitive."
Cons: "2hr 30 minute delay with no information or vouchers"
Pros: "Clean Aircraft"
Cons: "Boarding on the flight out did the Irish Rugby Scrum proud and on this Trip it was a STAMPEDE. Please readdress the boarding arrangements, Ever the Priority Boarders were overrun !!"
Cons: "i was charged for still water. you are flying in a pressurized cabin for over an hour, and you don't feel obligated to offer them the most basic of services, like water. when will you begin to charge for using the toilets?"
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: "I liked getting off the plane."
Cons: "Hidden fees after hidden fees... The lady at the check in counter said my bag was fine... At the gate they said it was to big and weighed too much. £50 Extra. I bought an exit row seat because I'm big guy. The seat belt didn't fit so I asked for an extension and the flight attendant got very snippy with me and said she would not give me an extension because of "safety reasons". (This has never been the case on any other airline I have flown.) She then very rudely said because of your rather large size we are going to have to move you to another seat where we can give you an extension. Like I said I know I'm a big guy but you don't have to so loud and rude about it. At least say it with a smile and some kindness... Wow. It was just uncomfortable and not a good feeling. Later when I got to sitting in my new seat, they came through with the convince cart (no free snacks or drinks, you pay for everything.) She nor the other attendent with her asked if we wanted and thing, if we were doing alright, nothing. Thank God it was only a 1.5 hour flight. So glad that experience is over."
Pros: "The price..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 2 hours with little information to passengers about why/with new expected times. Boarding was a mess with people all of a sudden rushing towards the door. On board, the crew seemed very flustered and was constantly rushing around, unsure who ordered what, etc. At a minimum, I would expect free coffee and water and was surprised to find out that was not the case on this flight. Not a positive experience and will try not to fly Ryanair in the future, will also not recommend to friends."
Pros: "Missed as flight from.larnaca was cancelled"
Pros: "the flight crew was nice and friendly when they werent trying to sell you something."
Cons: "Ryanair is a bunch of criminals that prey on the Americans traveling abroad. Yes its a discount airline but my $18 flight turned into $150 after all the hidden fees were paid for. To charge a passenger 15 pounds each to print a boarding pass is absolutely ridiculous. Everyone else around us could use their phones as a boarding pass except for the traveling Americans who did not have access to a printer while on vacation is criminal. Lesson learned, I will never fly Ryanair again and will tell every American I know not to be blinded by their discount fare."
Pros: "They were punctual"
Cons: "Their greed"
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: "Crying baby"
Cons: "Why did I pay for priority boarding? It didn't give me any sort of priority! And then we sat on a wretchedly hot flight for 40 minutes before leaving."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no on was told"
Cons: "Did not know there was a 45 euro check in fee per person...never was advertised!"
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "The very very long wait and queue checking in at Gate 11"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the food, and service wasn't too bad"
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They warn you that you need to check yourself in online at least 2 hours before or they will charge you. We got there three hours in advance, tried to check in online but the the page always redirected you to their wifi which they want you to pay for. The only other way around this was to use the other wifi but that means we would have to do download their app. In the end, we nearly missed my flight because of all this and so we ended up checking in there and being charged £90 or $135. What a ripoff."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and always smiling."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour and we weren't given any notice or information as to why. When we were finally given a gate number to board (barely 30 mins before our scheduled take off) we were directed to a closed gate with no staff or plane and waited there for over half an hour before Ryanair staff arrived. When staff members arrived (after the scheduled departure time) they had no idea what was going on or why there was a delay. I clearly heard one of them say, "I don't know why all these people are here." The lack of information was frustrating and it was unfortunate the staff at the gate had to try to deal with a problem they had absolutely no clue about let alone seem to even care about. I do not plan on flying with Ryanair again because of this horrible customer service experience."
Pros: "We had been scared by other reviews, but this was not as bad as we'd read. There is no entertainment onboard, no food except for sale, and some luggage restrictions you need to take note of before you check in. Otherwise, quick smooth flight, friendly staff, luggage arrived, so overall fine experience."
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"
Cons: "You think you are getting a good deal when you buy the ticket but they get you for everything. Our tickets where 30 euros and by the time we were done paying all their fees for baggage and printinh tickets we were up over 300!! If you don't print your ticket before you get there they charge you $45 for each one! That's more than our flight cost. On top of that you have to stand in one line to get a slip for baggage then another line to pay the fee and then go back to the original line to drop the bags. This was the worst experience we've ever had. I will not be flying Ryair ever again."
