Pros: "Got home an hour early"
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: "Flight crew didn’t ask anyone if they wanted a drink for the whole 10+ hrs unless they had pre purchased food."
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."
Cons: "We were diverted to Dulles because of weather, which is no one' fault, of course. We were assured on the flight that there would be buses ready to take us to New York or accommodation for us if the roads were too dangerous. We went through immigration and were greeted by a resounding silence on the part of Norwegian. No representative, no message, no announcement, no luggage, which we STILL have not received a week later. All efforts to get in touch with Norwegian were fruitless. Never, never, never will I give them my business again."
Pros: "Good aircraft. USB plug @ every seat."
Cons: "Boarding was late& a little disorganized"
Pros: "Nothing because I did not take this flight"
Cons: "That we were there 50 minutes before departure and it was not clear that we had to be there an hour before departure. It’s not that we didn’t plan to be earlier (we did) but our Uber driver took an awful route and turned a 50 minute drive into 2 hours. Given there was nothing else we could do, we would have appreciated a little more leniency or at least more clarity on the hour rule."
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: "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: "New plane, good value (Premium), comfortable seat, great staff and service."
Cons: "Entertainment system was limited. Seemed better for kids than parents. Not much choice of video content. No music audio."
Cons: "I wouldn’t fly Norwegian again! Poor service!!!!"
Cons: "Terrible meals. Waste of my money."
Pros: "The Boeing Dreamliner"
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: "Modern, clean plane (Dreamliner); and fuss-free experience. Definitely good value for money."
Cons: "Seriously poor leg-room for a transatlantic flight. If you're going to sell food on board. Make the most of the opportunity and ensure it's decent quality?! Options are limited and quality is noooot good."
Pros: "The comfortable seats"
Cons: "Being separated from my friend across an aisle"
Cons: "all good"
Cons: "I found a caterpillar in my salad. Glad I saw it before I ate it!"
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."
Cons: "Terrible airline, kept us on the plane for 30 minutes after we had landed"
Pros: "Norwegian airlines is amazing. Flight from London to seattle on the new 787 was so comfortable. Norwegian air runs a well run, clean, accommodating airlines. The food was good and the service excellent. The selection of movies want that great. It was either kids or violence. But over all loved the flight. Will definitely fly norwegian air again"
Cons: "Better selection of movies. Something between animated and violence"
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."
Cons: "They always run out of the chicken option first for dinner."
Cons: "Late departure and terrible customs in Oakland."
Cons: "Food choice"
Pros: "Every trans-Atlantic flight I've had with Norwegian has been on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which is an incredibly comfortable airplane compared to current standards. Ventilation and lighting are superior in a way that I doubt can be corrected on older aircraft. Norwegian's crew are *superb*. I've never had such snappy service on an aircraft; ordering via the built-in touchscreens is quick and straightforward. Also, I pre-bought the meal for a 7-hour flight, and it also came with a snack near the end, and each came with a drink."
Cons: "The food is not as good as Turkish Airlines. I don't think you can order anything but snacks and sandwiches if you don't pre-order, which isn't very enjoyable on a trans-Atlantic flight."
Cons: "We had to wait for over an hour to get our bags"
Pros: "Dreamliner was new, clean and very comfortable, plenty of leg room. The meal was excellent including choice of wine. Would definitely fly with Norwegian again."
Cons: "The process was not clear as to whether or not we had preordered dinner. Worst part of the trip was waiting for our luggage at Orlando, it took 90 minutes before our luggage appeared. Do not know where the problem originated."
Cons: "They did not have the vegetarian meal that I Pre ordered and paid for. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Boarding by seat number made boarding go smooth"
Pros: "Comfortable and easy."
Pros: "The 787 dreamlike is great"
Pros: "On time and very nice attendants very clean cabins"
Pros: "Airplane was fantastic, best I have ever felt on a plane"
Pros: "Plenty of great movies to watch"
Cons: "Could have had a little more leg room."
Cons: "takeoff and landing weren’t very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew were great and can't compliment enough."
Cons: "The boarding process really lets Easyjey down. It’s never clear where to queue or where to stand and so many passengers get angry about it. It becomes such a stressful thing. It’s literally the reason I chose not to fly with EasyJet where possible. Shame because everything else is good."
Pros: "Staff were great (as always) with Easyjet."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Athens due to heavy winds. Quite common with Mykonos apparently. Was a bit of a mess when we landed in Athens...left hand didn’t know what the right was doing."
Pros: "Crew very amicable and helpful."
Cons: "Better seats and more legroom"
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: "Flight attendants were very nice as were the pilots"
Cons: "There was no gate listed until 15 minutes before boarding time. The staff at the airport was very rude. There is no sort of process or order once boarding time comes around."
Cons: "My wife and I were traveling to Paris for our Honeymoon. Due to traffic, an accident, and a flat tire, it took us 3 hours to get to the Airport, even though it was a 1 hour ride. We were not allowed to check our luggage on to the plane because we were 1 minute late. Our flight was scheduled for 18:00 and the cut off for the luggage check was at 17:20. The EasyJet employees were very rude telling us we were late, despite the fact that there were people checking their bags on to that flight as we spoke. We will never again use EasyJet. Completely ruined our Honeymoon."
Cons: "Not enough space in the overhead bins"
Cons: "No air conditioning. Seats uncomfortable and cramped"
Cons: "No controls on boarding, no reason for SB it was agree for all! Problems for family’s with baby buggies! The boy controlling the door was useless! I hope trip home is better?"
Pros: "Flight was not that late taking off"
Cons: "I think an older plane as space in seats wasn’t the same as I have on previous Berlin flight."
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."
Pros: "Everything ran on time"
Cons: "One Air stewardess kept banging in to me while I was sat in my seat and it's not like I'm over weight and handing into the walk way, they were abrupt and rude to other people flying too. And one refused to give a man some water before we took off for his baby as he had spilt his, I later over heard them as I was at the back where they sit, saying I could have gave him water but he should have been more prepared and brought some with him! I mean to not allow a child some water is pretty low standards especially as he explain that he had spilt his!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in aircraft"
Cons: "Herding of customers like cattle, bus not big enough for all customers. Gate staff rude, generally All border staff at Gatwick were rude and treated paying customers appallingly"
Cons: "Being charged £49 for having toiletries in small bag"
Pros: "Quick service."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "In general i'm a big fan of Easy jet, nothing to claim in general"
Cons: "with the cancellation i had minimal services from airline. Very very poor hotel, transport to be organised on my own, same with food but all covert by easyjet at the end..... i was really badly impress, being a frequent traveller, about the quality of hotel, the worst since years ..."
Cons: "1h 50 minutes this time"
Pros: "Arrived early, happy relaxed flight crew, no stress"
Cons: "Speedy boarding was pointless at Schönefeld as we were all chucked on a bus (but we did speedy board onto the bus, but was one of the last people off!)."
Pros: "Crew where kind enough to explain the problem and professional throughout the flight."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour due to a technical issue. Long journey to the airplane from the departure gate on a bus"
Pros: "The staff was very kind and helpful. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "We were late but it wasn't easyjet''s fault."
Pros: "The captain was nice and kept us up to date."
Cons: "The guy at boarding was rude. The plane was delayed by 80mins, where we just sat on the tarmac."
Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of rubbish on a stairway that no one removed. Totally ridiculous."
Cons: "It's bad enough getting up at 3am to get to the airport for the early flight but when it's the first one out and it's 40 minutes late your really not happy.i can't remember the last time I booked easyJet and left on time"
Pros: "It was fairly efficient and landed on time, and the onboard crew seemed fine, if slightly disinterested."
Cons: "I used to think Easyjet were the most comfortable and relaxed budget airline but after a shouty girl at the boarding queue I then had to squeeze into a seat smaller than I remembered."
Pros: "Flight was 30 minutes late, not sure who's fault. Smooth landing"
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: "Maybe it was the time of the year but we waited longer on the plane than the flight itself."
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: "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"
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: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Although I had a child and was at the boarding gate in time,boarding was a free for all. We were also left waiting in a doorway with baby in the cold and with the fumes of the plane. The food was good but although I was on the first few rows with one of the first to request food some of the selections were not available. The fold out tables were also very dirty and the plane was uncomfortably cold"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late; and there was no room for my cabin bag except at the back of the plan. Their cabin bag policy is not consistently applied"
Pros: "Fast processing of all baggage - automated drop off points at Gatwick North"
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: "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: "The crew were lovely; very friendly and helpful. Comfortable flight; lovely food."
Pros: "Price, route, ease of check in. The self luggage check in at gatwick really a must in the upcoming modern airports"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little hectic - the sign for Venice was at gate 28, and they called for people to board, but they were still boarding for Berlin. Then there was a last call for boarding for Venice - but they hadn't even started boarding for Venice yet and it was meant to be a last call for Berlin. And then Venice ended up at a different gate (but only one over)."
Pros: "The Price"
Cons: "Once again a 2 hour delay. my last 4 flights have been delayed. Love the price but on time is also important. Time i looked elsewhere. I fly to and from Malaga every three weeks."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "In my opinion there was a total lack of information from staff to staff and from staff to customers."
Cons: "The food"
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: "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."
Cons: "2 hrs late and we missed all our following connections as a result."
Pros: "Staff was nice and felt bad for their company’s policy."
Cons: "I was charged $45 US dollars to print my boarding pass!!! I’m used to only being able to check in 24 hours before my flight. I found out that I cannot print my boarding pass within 48 hours of my flight. I was monitarily RAPED and will be disputing these charges! Boo on you Wizz Air....aka f*ckwads."
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"
Cons: "Last minute boarding change & overall 1 hr delay"
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: "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"
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
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: "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"
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: "Brand new planes - on board crew was pleasant and the flights were smooth and on time."
Cons: "Ridiculous size restrictions on carry-on. If you can pack your clothes in a wallet, then you should be able to carry on at no cost. Only the smallest of bags will meet the "free" requirement. Website is awful to attempt to online check in. Crazy that they charge for check in at the airport if you cannot get their site to work. Customer service phone call also costs a quid a minute. It's almost as if they are proud that they screw you if you encounter any difficulty or you've made a mistake in the complicated boarding pass emailing procedure."
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."
Pros: "Flight empty, crew good."
Pros: "Everything was okay."
Cons: "I requested for assistance, for my little brother ( 1st time in Uk) Now this days they don’t got one because of Covid 19"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are very small, but that’s what you get for flying Ryan Air"
Cons: "Always seems to be delays while seating in cabin which is frustrating"
Cons: "Flight not being late"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew."
Pros: "Actually getting on board!"
Cons: "The fact that something was clearly wrong before we started to go outside and when it was raining we were left outside with no apology at all and when we boarded the communication/apologies were scant"
Pros: "getting off"
Cons: "filthy plane, confused staff, cattle truck class. I bet people got comfier rides to aushvits. if only there were national carrier flying my route"
Cons: "My wife was not allowed to board the flight. because her passport expires in april, we was told by ryanair in a phone call that this would not be a problem,then when she tried to board she was refused. thanks ryanair you cost us a lot of money and caused a lot of stress. you just lost another customer. why not make it clear that a person needs 90 days on their passport if you are going to enforce these purile rules."
Pros: "It all went smoothky"
Pros: "Fast boarding. I exchanged place with a stranger with no problem ."
Cons: "There's not a lot of space for your legs but that's an airplane problem and not really ryanair only. They took off the little basket space from the seat in front of you so you have nowhere to put away your stuff which is very annoying. You have ton pay for everything on board, absolutely nothing is free and it's ridiculously expensive."
Pros: "Quick and efficient."
Cons: "Waiting in stairwells and in between corridors for the loading to commence."
Pros: "A lot of people seem to hate flying Ryanair and yes the airline has its list of cons. But I really like their Cabin crew. They help out inside the aircraft with luggage space etc. and are generally very good with customers I haven't seen this level of service even with non-budget airlines."
Cons: "the cold outside and the doors left open."
Pros: "Good landing and on time."
Cons: "Took my carry on bag and put I with the checked in bags without prior notice."
Cons: "We were forced to put our carry on luggage in the hold despite the fact that was loads of room in the overhead lockers. This is such a tedious new trend clearly designed to increase stress and anxiety around the boarding process (and extract more cash for priority boarding). Add to that the extra effort they take to seat you separately even when checking in together... unless of course you pay extra. Shame on you."
Cons: "Had to give up my hand luggage, card machine on plane did not work on my card, even though the keypad said pinok amd transaction authorised their iPhone saying it did not. By law I should have been given a declined receipt from the card machine, that is consumer law"
Pros: "The flights are good value and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Due to mass cancellations we had days worrying if we were able to go on holiday our holiday or get the return flight home. They got the planes at the wrong gates so our flights were delayed for and hour, a passenger being sick very close to us was not moved away into a quieter area of the plane. Our luggage was damaged when we picked it up."
Pros: "Ok, it's cheap, but added extras take the shine off this."
Cons: "To check in I was forced to book seats both ways, then had to pay extra on top of original price to pick the seats. There were a few spare seats on the flight so it wasn't a case of overbooked."
Pros: "Priority boarding was great."
Cons: "Flights delayed significantly on outward and return journeys with no one providing any detail regarding next steps or estimated departures. But it was alright once things got moving."
Pros: "Safe journey!"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and professional and managed to have a laughter with. Definitely a plus"
Cons: "The delays. It's not the first time travelling with Ryanair and not my first delay either. But overall it was a pleasant trip"
Pros: "Speedy boarding."
Cons: "Stansted security a pain. Seat uncomfortable."
Pros: "Checked bag for free at gate. Got a window seat"
Cons: "departed 15 mins late."
Pros: "Nothing to brag about really"
Cons: "The plane was 30 mins late setting off. Food as an extra was terrible. And the seats are narrow and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Ground crew went on lunch break causing an hour delay. Seat was dirty. Could not understand what the crew was saying."
Pros: "Crew are relatively nice people"
Cons: "Ryanair in general. The ridiculous queue to get on first so they don't decide to put your luggage in the hold. The cramped uncomfortable seats. The monumental number of attempts to get you to buy useless addons. Not to mention that they have now gone one step further and make you pay extra to sit with the person/s you booked your ticket with. If I was travelling with a small child I would be outraged. I along with every other person who can't afford a more expensive airline royally salute you on such a sensational farce."
Cons: "There was a 50 minute delay and they kept us outside in the rain and wind fir half an hour"
Pros: "Got extra legroom sitting in the Emergency Exit"
Cons: "Pretty much everything."
Pros: "Crew were competent and happy, not overworked, dour or dim."
Cons: "Big queues to board, followed by bus transfer to plane => first ones to stand in line at the last ones off the bus to board the plane. My fault really, but why encourage people to stand in a queue for 30 mins at all?"
Pros: "Paying for the extras to make my journey as better for me"
Cons: "Selling of the scratch cards and cabin crew asking everyone row by row for change for €20."
Pros: "On time, and comfortable"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Nice crew and good informations flow"
Cons: "Had to wait outside for boarding. No pocket on seats."
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't go"
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "Called to gate only to then have to wait over an hour before boarding. No info given just stood there like lemons. Also they do their upmost to make you pay to sit next to each other! I know they are trying to make as much profit as poss but just annoying."
Cons: "3 hour delay! Walked out of barcrlona airport ar 3am!"
Pros: "Very badly handled delay .Letting people line up at the gate even though they knew the aircraft was still at least 40 minutes from arrival .No announcements letting anyone know what's going on .Then letting us board only to be stuck in a stair well with door locked for 10 minutes and then on the tarmac for 15 minutes while the aircraft was being prepared ,It also staring raining .this is not how to run a airline .Perhaps training is needed from the likes of AirAsia"
Pros: "Good service to local airports"
Cons: "Left late due to passengers acting like zombies"
Cons: "Four hours late leaving Stansted because Ryanair ground crew were under staffed"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, and the flight was smooth, plane was clean."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed by the previous flight landing late. Obviously this happens, that's fine, but on landing at stanstead the bags from the hold were not released onto the baggage carousel for over an hour and a half after we landed. This is completely unacceptable and wasn't acknowledged by airport staff for over an hour, with no explanation given at any point."
Pros: "Boarding was reasonably slick. Staff were very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Disembarking was aWful. Flight was packed and the buses from landing site to airport entry were rammed. At least 6 passengers left standing outside the bus for a good 10 minutes with indecisive ground crew pacing, staring and disappearing with no solution until a senior member arrived and squeezed people into the driver's cabin. Seat space is pretty tight. Not the most comfortable. Not a fan of trekking to Stanstead but it was earliest flight so no option but Ryanair"
Cons: "4hr delay"
Pros: "We had no problems with our flight"
Pros: "Service costumers disagree"
Cons: "The whole experience. Everyone we interacted with was just not nice or appreciative."
Pros: "Ryanair - the carrier for low class English people looking for a cheap holiday in the sun"
Cons: "Gosh, what a horrible airline. To avoid unless the price is dirt cheap."
Pros: "Friendly, calm crew. Luggage collection was speedy."
Cons: "When gate was announced everyone went straight to long queue, with only one person working gate. No sign of anyone to do priority seating, if we had booked it. We had earlier been in a long queue for security, so were feeling, tired & frazzled. Our hand baggage went into the hold instead of on the plane."
Pros: "Cost Convenience"
Cons: "Walking across tarmac to board No music or anything"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "small delay. Old plane"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, very friendly and professional cabin crew. Good landing."
