Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."

Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."

Pros: "It was very comfortable"

Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "Water"

Cons: "Excellent airline. Always my first choice!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The last 4 flights with Aerlingus have all been at least 2 hours delayed to London. People give out about Ryan Air but I have been flying with them to France 2 a year for the last 4 years and I only had one delayed flight because of air traffic controllers"

Cons: "Nothing, everything was exceptional"

Pros: "I liked the pretzel snacks and the entertainment options."
Cons: "I had a flight from London to SFO with a connection in Dublin. However, since I was traveling to the US I had to go through customs in Dublin. There was an hr an a half layover and yet I was running to the gate to make my connection. This seemed to be due to an inefficient system."

Pros: "Ordinary flight, no food (though International it operates like Domestic Travel)."
Cons: "Boarding is extremely weird for Air Lingus. Causes problems when there is no proper order."

Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."

Pros: "Nothing was pleasant for this flight"
Cons: "Keep the schedule up to date on the web When there’s delay, keep customers posted Don’t miss customers luggage"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Roomier seats, include a beverage (soda, juice, and at least water), child free section"

Pros: "It was a short flight but the flight attendants made the most of my trip. They were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Liked the logistics from the European side for connecting flights, the airplane, crew, and entertainment."

Pros: "The first plane left without us, so I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport late because our first plane arrived at the airport late, then we were held up because of poor weather. When we arrived at the Dublin airport, we had to run the gauntlet, only to be told our plane had already left- a few minutes early - thanks a lot. I wanted a drink on the plane and had to pay for it- I’ve always had free drinks before."

Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"

Cons: "Very bumpy takeoff and landing"

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing"
Cons: "Can believe they charge you for water."

Pros: "I barely remember the flight as I was traumatized by the flight previously mentioned."
Cons: "Lost luggage!!!!!!!!! See above. The seating was a little better than British Air."

Pros: "I like the options of entertainment throughout the flight to help keep your mind off of how long we're trapped in a metal tube 40,000' in the air."
Cons: "It's a little discouraging to see the flight attendants asleep in the back of the plane. The flight was 7 hours in the daylight. I know that crews can't be flown for more than 8 hours in a day, so it shouldn't be too much to ask the attendants to stay awake during a 7 hour flight."

Pros: "The flight was on schedule and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The cabin and restrooms were a bit dirty. The seats weren’t the most comfortable and the attendants didn’t make as many rounds as expected for a 10 hour day flight."

Pros: "* New planes * Easy check in"
Cons: "* Last minute seat assignment * Crew is helpful but not friendly"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."

Pros: "everything was fine"

Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "Price Staff Efficient Comfortable Boarding and exit procedure excellent"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on our way home. Worst is that it has our toothbrushes and I can’t find new ones at 10:00 at night..."

Cons: "Per usual, airline food is blah!"

Pros: "Friendly staff with excellent humour, and an efficiently short flight time."

Pros: "You can choose your seats without being charged and it was a very clean and comfortable flight"

Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"

Cons: "Cramped seating. No food or beverage provided without charge."

Pros: "We waited about a half hour for the fuel crew to come and fill up the plane, but the staff and the captain were very nice and informed us of all updates and progress being made. I didn't even mind the extra wait! We still were able to make our next transfer and got to the airport in great time!"

Pros: "I liked doing immigration in Dublin rather than Chicago, even though the process was lengthy. We couldn't understand why, having done the automated system, the process was virtually repeated at the immigration desk. Queues were very long."
Cons: "As above plus my husband's seat arm was broken. The inflight entertainment system was a joke. Back of seat screens fitted but not working. Very distant ceiling screens and only one working before the whole system failed. Not acceptable on a long flight."

Cons: "Custom made bike box erroneously classified oversized, but they didn't charge for it so ok"

Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "We borded Kemal time, but did not take off until an hour later"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Limited choice of entertainment. ****Lost my luggage both destination bound and home bound**** Being kept in the plane for an extended period of time after having landed. Not even a coffee during the connecting flights (Dublin to Cardiff and Gatwick to Dublin). Poor connecting facilities and having to repeat security screening before connecting to the second leg of trip."

Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are too close together!"

Pros: "Seats on flights between London and Dublin."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, poor meal offerings, delays and long check in process"

Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."

Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"

Pros: "The Aer Lingus flight from London to Dublin was fast and easy"
Cons: "short duration in the air, no in flight entertainment or food and beverages"

Pros: "The crew was awesome and so accommodating"
Cons: "Not the flight/airline fault, but the getting through us preclearance was a nightmare"

Cons: "Had lovely pix of nice looking food but charged for it! I had come over on a BA flight that served a really nice snack b'fast. Thought it odd that same route with different carrier made you pay. I was in desperate need of a coffee, could have offered complimentary beverages."

Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."

Cons: "Late departure on way back"

Pros: "Boarding from back and rear of plane made passenger loading faster. I had to purchased seats with more room to provide comfort for long flight."
Cons: "The food was only okay and I'm sure that better food could have been purchased."

Pros: "A lot of space for feet"
Cons: "The service and food"

Cons: "The food"

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: "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: "The flight arrived ten minutes early at our destination."
Cons: "Extremely small and uncomfortable seats even for a small person."

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."

Pros: "Easy to book. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Would be good if there was complementary tea/coffee or water. People might then buy a snack to go with it."

Cons: "2 hrs late and we missed all our following connections as a result."

Cons: "You have to inform the customers, that company needs you to have a visa"

Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."

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."

Pros: "There wasn't any delays, perfect landing"

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Last minute boarding change & overall 1 hr delay"

Pros: "Nothing!"
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: "Excellent pilot"

Pros: "Staff were generally sweet & approachable."
Cons: "Cannot understand management of border control security before boarding. This is done in the corridor on route to gate. Long long queues, then continued to queue before boarding in the waiting/holding room. No toilets once you enter the corridor to go to gate. Unsatisfactory management. Water from air conditioner dripping on me on board from take off. Not an immediate suggestion to move, but agreement to do so on my suggestion and then gentle insistence. Thankfully there was a seat for me! It seemed to be a problem staff were aware of which is concerning that Wizz did not block that seat."

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."

Pros: "Purchased priority boarding for a change which was nice to be able to not have to jump in the queue quickly. Boarding was fine and the crew were very friendly and professional. The extra legroom seats over the wing provided a good extra space."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane was not good, the carpets were fraying and the seats were old and tired. The seats were positioned too upright and there was no option to recline the seat so it was a very straight seat for 2hrs on the flight."

Pros: "Standard service , even was late come almost in time"
Cons: "Was a bit late"

Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."

Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."

Pros: "The crew are always lovely,very professional,helpful and make us feel welcome"
Cons: "The gate number was displayed and all passengers made their way to the gate were we made to wait for about 30min before passport control took place,no information was provided as to what caused the delay;after the passport control we had to wait again for about 15min.The late take off resulted in me narrowly missing my train home"

Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"

Pros: "was on time"

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."

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: "The staff was fine. We arrived on time."
Cons: "These discount flights from Luton are packed with obnoxious, drunken Brits going on holiday in Hungary. In future, I will fly from Heathrow. Besides, by the time one pays all the little incidental fees at WizzAir, the cost is about the same as the legacy carriers."

Cons: "I wasn't to bucharest because on the phone the laidy said to me i can travel with my driving license because my id was lost and at the gate they stop me i lost all money from ticket plus transport to airport and back you should refound my money this company is the most worst company in the world"

Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"

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."

Cons: "Before bording a man ask me to gollow him to mrsire my bag and let me pau 40 pound because its litle bit biger than he want and let others pass woth biger bag ."

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!!!!!"

Pros: "Facilities are terrible! It was like stepping back in time! To use this as a stopover, is a poor decision because this airport does NOT meet the brief and does NOT warrant being used for passengers. I’ve been very polite here, I have more choice words I could use"
Cons: "Nothing! To learn that Wizz Air ‘allowed’ cabin size is so tiny was really shocking! With All the other budget airlines, easyJet, Monarch & even Ryanair my cabin would’ve been fine. This is the same hand luggage I’ve been using using for many years."

Pros: "Well organised."
Cons: "Charging for light refreshments."

Pros: "Everyone was really friendly and accommodating to my needs"
Cons: "40 minutes late taking off - sitting on the plane"

Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"

Cons: "As Usual always late, left us sitting in a bus on the tarmac for ages in30 deg heat. awful. will never use again"

Cons: "Crampt seats, mob to board the plane, hour delay with no reason given."

Pros: "Nice clean plane, friendly airline staff (as friendly as they get, we all know how they have that teflon attitude), OK food, I sat between 2 Bulgarian passengers which were very well behaved, one screaming baby nearby (as there always is) and no-one playing football with the back of my seat all the flight (you know who you are - hope someone does it to you), and no-one fidgeting all flight so all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Bit slow in opening the gate for people to get on. They expect to cram you like sardines on a hot staircase with no where to go when there is other people being checked in to board behind you, really stupid and possibly sadistic."

Pros: "Cost was ok but you get into the trap where every turn is a cost option. The cost can climb to the point where other scheduled flights compete."
Cons: "The web site is laborious. Checking in was 48hrs prior and frankly you should be able to choose what remaining seats are available as a no cost option. You can choose prior to the 48hrs at cost (i was never given option on a 3rd party site when i booked!) Checking in should be longer than 3 hrs! Because if you book a exec lounge which is air side you lose 1.5 hrs as a minimum in the process of checking in luggage and security checks. Lose .5 hr+ to go to gate and you get 1hr only when you pay for 3 hrs! Where is the sense in that? Its miss-selling at its worst as everyone is complicit. Flight left 20min late for no apparent reason Seats are a bit stone age and hard although only a short flight my ar*e went to sleep before I could"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees"

Pros: "No food or entertainment on this flight,"
Cons: "I found the luggage allowance confusing"

Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"

Pros: "The weather was nice."
Cons: "The boarding was announced 30 minutes before the beginning of the procedure. All the passengers were standing in the queue, without any possibilities to sit down. At Luton there is no connection among the announcements and the actual status of the boarding of a particular plane."

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: "Nothing at all... They were unfriendly and I missed my flight because of them. Lot money and time is gone"
Cons: "How they organized everything in this day!!!! 4th of July 2017 TERRIBLY Terrible"

Pros: "Nice new plane and caught up time even though it was late leaving left Luton late"
Cons: "Left late"

Pros: "Transparent fare, no frills and punctual."
Cons: "Hideous seats - seat backs don't decline which, combined with minimal legroom (even in "premium" section"), makes for a very uncomfortable flight."

Cons: "Randomly picked for paying a carry on fee. Misleading, expensive, and the feeling of being extorted. I will push for a refund."

Cons: "Lead turblence"

Pros: "The overall price"
Cons: "Waiting in line for boarding to find out the passengers in the plane that had arrived had not disembarked. Passengers (and not just priority) brought more than one bag onto the plane. The overhead stowage was bulging. As a passenger with a foot cast the disembarkation was not the best"

Pros: "Quick flight. However as is usual with Ryanair cabin crew their diction on the intercom giving instructions are appalling. This is a feature of Ryanair. Ask for diction or speech lessons and at least passengers will understand. My kids thought the crew were speaking Polish"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Being a bit late. Unusual for Ryanair"

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: "As good as it can be with Ryanair"

Pros: "Flight left on time. Reasonable price. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Priority boarding didn't really work."

Cons: "The problem with random seat allocation is if you pay to sit somewhere then that should be fine, no. Today I was constantly asked if I wouldn’t mind swapping seats so the passenger could be closer to their partner which is always going to be an inferior seat or worse sat in the middle seat. Their random seat allocation therefore can inconvenience seat paying passengers not a quality experience."

Cons: "The flight attendant was actually reading from the shopping catalogue.. it was actually annoying and I couldn’t relax during the flight."

Pros: "Flight on time, luggage handling ok"
Cons: "The long walk to and from the plane. The stupid trail down the steps into the cold and rain, across the tarmac then back up the steps into the plane. At Birmingham airport. Fine at Malaga no problem."

Pros: "The "sales" gets a little old. Duty free, lotto tickets, food, drink...…."

Pros: "Boarding was straight forward and fast."
Cons: "Very basic comfort. Less leg room."

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: "The only thing good with this flight was the time keeping."
Cons: "The first time travelled with Ryanair and the last.Seating uncomfortable, back rest to upright.Difficulty understanding the crews public announcing over tannoy system.Allocation of seats diabolical. Not a lot of advantage being a priority passenger from non priority. Suggest implement similar procedures to jet2. Would learn a lot."

Pros: "Flights ran to time"
Cons: "Some passengers were taking phone calls when the safety demonstration was being done."

Cons: "One hour late departure insufficient information Had to be bussed to plane negating any value for paying for priority Parked off stand at Birmingham had to use steps from plane and into terminal wife has arthritis and can’t carry bags I had to carry two bags down steps unable to use handrail really quite dangerous no apology re delay"

Pros: "Quicker flight late at night"
Cons: "Waiting on bus to terminal Almost missed last train."

Cons: "Staff were quite rude and didn't spend time explaining the delay we were having in English"

Pros: "You get what you pay for. No issues"
Cons: "The queue on the tarmac waiting to board but I realise they are trying to keep to schedule"

Pros: "Efficiency"
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: "Nothing -apart from the fact I eventually got to the destination I needed the same day!!"
Cons: "The delays. The lack of information. It became obvious we were not going to leave on time. But No announcement. nobody told us of the delay - or why. Then the conflicting information. Technical problems. Flight cancelled. Go to Ryan air deal to organise your own forward travel. Then - once back through Police & customs. No - flight going to happen!!! I have more to say about service & crew - but no space"

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: "Nothing really, it's a cheap ticket and that's it."
Cons: "Ridiculous boarding situation, expensive onboard food and beverage. Upright seats. Advanced check in always seats your group apart to encourage you to purchase seats. Budget airline that trust to milk their clients for every penny. Only use them if no other option."

Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "The delay in boarding particularly as no explanation was given."

Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Was quick and easy"

Pros: "For the price what is there to complain about."

Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"

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: "Nothing, taxi plane, expectations not high"
Cons: "Cramped seating, flight delay, time waiting at the boarding gate."

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."

Pros: "The flight there and back got us there early each time despite being late departing. Choosing your seat is the ideal thing to do, even if it is only £6 more its worth it."
Cons: "There was no Aircon on the plane out which made it an uncomfortable flight out there and caused for certain people to smell slightly. The staff on the flight back weren't overly great and one accused a bloke of snatching when actually his bag was just heavy. She also had attitude towards others which made me think, whats she going in this job."

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."

Pros: "Ease of use"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"

Pros: "No problems"

Pros: "I love Ryan air prices , my flight was almost on time . Crew very welcoming and helpful , as usual ."
Cons: "For me , don't change Allstate good , thank you ."

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: "The crisps are fab!!"
Cons: "Slightly delayed on way out"

Pros: "Food when it finally arrived 30 minutes before we landed"
Cons: "Delays on boarding which led to a rescheduled takeoff which was 2 hours late."

Cons: "Sardine seating. Very poor "breakfast". Constant selling of deals"

Pros: "Quickness"
Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "On time, good crew, seats that don't recline. Taking my carry on luggage at check in.boarding passes on my iPhone and free check in 7 days before your flight unlike monarch where it's is 1 day. Definitely use again."
Cons: "The Plane needed a good clean, floor littered with Rubbish. The queue to board which was created at least 15 minutes before we could actually board.I realise this is to ensure a quick turnaround but in a hot country waiting in the heat is uncomfortable."

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "The very very long wait and queue checking in at Gate 11"
