She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me.

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarkation at Belfast"
Cons: "the worst gluten-free food of any airline, and I've tried quite a few! And when the person in front reclines their seat, there's very little space left."
Pros: "Captain gave some nice hotspots to look out for as clear day."
Cons: "Standing for ages before boarding and in plane. Very basic and couldn't print boarding pass before travel. Seemed like a glitch with Aerlingus and I phoned but said they would forward to technical dept. No one got back to me. This caused unnecessary stress due to connections."
Cons: "Customer interaction is a joke"
Pros: "Seats are nice and comfy"
Cons: "Flight was late. Ground crew were atrocious and lost passengers and then insisted on counting the whole plane twice (as they got it wrong the first time). The flight was delayed by 4hrs in total and then Aerlingus denied compensation was due. Appalling performance"
Pros: "Super friendly, comfortable for the long flight, plenty to keep you occupied. Its my 3rd time flying with them and the flight is always smooth. And it doesn't hurt that there is a huge shamrock on the tail wing to make superstitious people like me, feel a little bit better! I will only use them!"
Cons: "All food and beverages had to be bought"
Pros: "Comfort. Ease of travel."
Cons: "Inflight shopping range"
Cons: "fly cleanup"

Pros: "The ground staff at Heathrow were friendly"
Cons: "The old A320 is among the most uncomfortable planes imaginable, but the flight is short"
Cons: "My bag was lost. The staff at the airport was friendly enough and assured me it would be delivered to my hotel in dublin that afternoon. It’s now the next day and I still have not received my bag. I’ve call multiple times and still cannot give me a straight answer. So now I have to check out of this hotel and hope my bag shows up before moving on to my next destination. Also, on the flight I asked for 2 glasses of tap water while they came around asking if we would like to purchase a soft or alcoholic drink or snacks. There was no water on the cart so she had to continue servicing the rest of the plane and said she would be back. The first flight attendant must of forgotten, that’s okay she was probably busy. I asked a second flight attendant, 10 minutes go by and she still didn’t bring us water. Finally asked a 3rd flight attendant and he brought it to us quickly, this was 30miniutes after I first asked. I felt that my request wasn’t as important because I didn’t have to purchase it."
Pros: "Suggest lanes with seat number groups in order to avoid people crowding the entry to boarding the plane. Dinner selection: Msin dish choice ran out and was left with only one entree to choose from Increase chicken bard entrees"
Cons: "Had to fight through a crowd to make my way to the gate."
Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge. This was very frustrating and seems to be a common problem as it was also the same scenario on the out bound flight to London which then caused me to miss my transatlantic flight as Aerlingus delayed the flight leaving Dublin plus air bridge problem"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Made me check my carryon bag then it was opened - why - don’t know - and items missing along with my luggage strap. Will NEVER use Aer Lingus again"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Gate unknown till last minute"
Pros: "Waiting ages at another carousel from NY flight meant that I missed the booked flight and had to pay another $60.00. This was efficiently done...but notice about bags being taken off roundabout would help.I thought it was a tour groups's and did not search for my missing bag ...Young woman in the Air linguis Dublin baggage office sweet and patient ...give her a raise."
Cons: "The enormous distance between getting off one plane and trying to get on to another ...some signage confusing re Internal direction to Terminal 2"
Pros: "They were helpful on the ground, though some of the crew were cold on the plane, not unhelpful, but not helpful"
Cons: "I had a changeable ticket but could only do so a 1counter. Missed earlier flight as a result. Terrible service. At Dublin airport going out they let me change at the gate. Bot not in Heathrow."

Cons: "Had to divert to Shannon due to fig. Bussed in FREEZING ancient vehicle to Cork"
Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."

Pros: "Not much to tell."
Cons: "Long walk to gate. Getting from terminal 5 to terminal 2 on a bus."
Pros: "no delays, comfortable seats"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed by 30 minutes"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Aer Lingus are always late departing, but it was a blessing this time as I'd have missed the connection otherwise!"
Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"
Pros: "On board staff is very nice."
Cons: "Ticket counter agent at SFO placed wrong tag on suitcase. This created lost luggage 4 four days. Boarding gate time posted on boarding pass from DUBto SFO as gate closing at 10:25 am when flight left at 12:30pm. We ran to gate to be told the gate won’t open for boarding until 11:40. While at DUB going to LHR none of the Aer Lingus staff told us we were to go to British Airways terminal until we got to counter. Why couldn’t there be advance notice?Aer Lingus is lame. This was my first & last time I fly Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"
Pros: "Great service as usual"
Pros: "Punctuality and cost"
Pros: "Quiet, short"
Pros: "The window seat."
Cons: "No Guiness"
Pros: "I missed the flight, and was put on a scheduled one for the next day. Also, I love the fact that I can do customs before arriving stateside."
Cons: "The air conditioning on board was FREEZING. It took three tries to get a blanket."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Delay at Dublin waiting for plane to get parked"
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Pros: "Fast service, kept well apprised of arrival times and such."
Cons: "Small plane but that really can't be helped. Also I didn't get the seats I picked online but that is most likely user error."
Pros: "Over the past week I had the pleasure of flying Britiish Air and codeshare Aer Lingus. I don't fly international that much, but I found that there was more room than I remember. I don't think how have had such a pleasant, eager staff on both airlines. The food was okay, but still better than I expected. It is tough to serve that many people. I would certainly fly BA again."
Cons: "Not much to say here. I am a critical person but I don't think that the crew could have done better. My only complaint...boo hoo, first world problem, my video screen didn't work very well. If it was tilted just right it would work. The free head phones have really poor quality. I had my own. In the end... not a big issue."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight even though little floor space."
Cons: "Small seats. Not much legroom."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, the flight arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment offered, aside from what you could purchase. But as it was a very short flight, this didn't make much of a difference for me. Overall, good short flight."
Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."
Cons: "Broken kiosks at airport meant that everyone had to check in at the counter - only problem was there were no Aer Lingus staff anywhere to be found. We, and dozens of other passengers waited 40 min+ before anyone showed up. Then when staff arrived they were oblivious to the huge line that had formed - they carried on their small talk amongst theirselves oblivious to the passengers who had been waiting for a long time to get their boarding pass."
Pros: "I love your airline. First trip with you this week. Clean spacious planes. Friendly and caring staff... noticed great things watching crew help others. Great entertainment options and quality. Food was tasty! Looking forward to my next trip with you."
Cons: "All great!"
Cons: "Professional staff"
Pros: "Everything went surprisingly smooth. Coffee was good, but had to pay for it"
Cons: "Didn't try the food"
Cons: "I needed wheelchair assistance due to a back injury. The person that picked me up at the aircraft from London was terrific, l was taken to the terminal and told that another team member would take me to the aircraft. No one showed up until the aircraft was fully boarded, then he left me at the beginning of the ramp instead of wheeling me to the aircraft. I was very disappointed! I was so disappointed I didn’t wait for a pickup at the airport in Amsterdam. I regret it, because I’m in so much pain!"
Pros: "Service and staff were great."
Cons: "Food not so good. Storage locker against the side bulkhead was constantly difficult to open."
Cons: "The unpleasant unhelpful staff"
Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the travel time to destination as it was the quickest flight due to circumstances and time I needed to travel."
Cons: "I didn't like near enough everything about this flight."
Pros: "Thai airways much better"
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."
Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."
Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."
Cons: "No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced"
Pros: "flight crew were very friendly and mostly helpful, except when they could not locate my meal, and i ended up getting about half of what the other diners got."
Cons: "boarding seems intent of creating class divisions. it may be useful for profitability, but it seems quite weird in today's world. food was significantly worse than the food on another flight i had taken the same day, delhi to london. seats are a bit janky and we had problems with the seat ahead reclining too much and not being able to be held upright."
Pros: "Nothing really. Except the general BA at T5 which is fine"
Cons: "Everything about the flight. From low quality, poor breakfast on Club cabin to poor service and no entertainment on the flight. It is not certainly value for money for traveling Club."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic, the seats were spacious but not overly comfortable. Flight was punctual and bags came quickly."
Cons: "Lounge was overcrowded, the plane was very old (the headrest of the man next to me fell off) with no entertainment whatsoever"
Pros: "All perfect !!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Only accept credit cards on board."
Pros: "Quick flight. Nice crew"
Cons: "The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Cabin was shoddy. New beverage service!"
Pros: "Food awful no entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was so somth"
Cons: "The crow service was so bad"
Pros: "The payment system was down so it was painful and slow"
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak"
Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."
Pros: "Staff are excellent, really friendly, respectful service. Food (expensive as always on planes) but excellent quality, really good choice to use M&S as providers. Excellent communication from pilot and cabin staff on delays before takeoff."
Cons: "System for paying by food with Avios points did not work. Plane left almost an hour late due to delays (landed 30 mins late)."
Pros: "Decent seat pitch on the relatively new a320 configuration. Lost my bag for a weekend trip, unapologetic ground handling staff, waited 90 mins to report it and no gesture of goodwill to remedy the situation."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Rude, entitled and lazy employees. Zero recognition of Emerald status. Forced me to check my bag which fit the onboard limits and flew on 3 flights, incl one on BA - on this very same itinerary."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID."
Pros: "Cabin crew always professional. The cabin was fresh and new."
Cons: "the leg room In club Europe is appalling. No premium feel at all."
Pros: "Food on board was tasty"
Cons: "Priority boarding not clear."
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour outward, nearly an hour flight back."
Pros: "Crew was supportive and very kind"
Cons: "Big delay due to unanounced gate for boarding. Systems at the airport were not giving the info. It took more than an hour to gather all passengers to the plane, which ended in 1hr 20 min delay."
Pros: "Short and convenient flight"
Cons: "My hand luggage was taken to be checked in"
Cons: "We sat at the runway for 1 hour"
Pros: "Boarding was so much more efficient than I'm used to with Aer Lingus! Staff all lovely."
Cons: "One-door boarding and exiting makes it so much slower...."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, no extra charge for emergency exit seat, snack and drinks included, modern interior, on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "People abusing the free drinks and the crew supplying them with them."
Cons: "It took ages to get everyone to board. Arrived in Amsterdam almost an hour later. BA need to either speed up the boarding process or allow earlier boarding time."
Pros: "Only scraped a two as was enough movies to watch."
Pros: "For a reasonably priced flight the comfort and free drink/snack were above average and very much appreciated."
Cons: "BA's online check in let them down though; the server kept crashing. They also wanted to charge £15 to pick one's seat, even at point of check in, a tacky ploy to pad profits. Forgiven on this instance as the flight was only 50 min, but would make me think twice for any longer distances."
Pros: "The seats were quite roomy and very comfortable. The flat bed with cozy duvet was great for actually getting some sleep during such a long flight. The amenity kit with Aromatherapy products was also really nice and I liked that they had separate kits for men and women."
Cons: "I was surprised that the crew didn't offer water proactively as I'm used to that on all long haul flights. I had to go ask several times for water. The meal services seemed quite slow and protracted as well."
Pros: "It's a short trip on Aer Lingus 1.5 hours so all was good"
Cons: "Wish Cork airport had an enclosed ramp for de planning rather than a step outside in the rain."
Cons: "The seat was little more than a seat in economy as to width, leg room , etc. Really not worth the cost of a business class ticket. Whilst the service was good , the food was mediocre. This was our first [ and possibly last] business class flight with BA and will stick with our usual business class airlines e.g. Qantas, Virgin Atlantic , Delta, Fiji Air, Virgin Australia ,etc."
Pros: "Comfortable seats; good choices of movies and decent food."
Cons: "(1) Water dripping from overhead luggage area during takeoff; we were told it was due to condensation. It was a good amount of water! (2) One of the male staff would not let us stand near the toilet area and not so politely asked that we go back to our seats. It was a long file so to be told you can't stretch your legs is unacceptable."
Pros: "Punctuality, boarding, baggage handling."
Cons: "The space is very limited - almost no knee space and huge boxes under the seats. Crew not very attentive. Sandwich for dinner."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine"
Cons: "The lack of any concern or effort on Iberia's part once in Havana sans luggage was disgraceful. We were without any personal items or medications for SIX DAYS of a cycling holiday, because Iberia failed to answer the phone or deliver the baggage. We were obliged to take a 6.5 hour journey from where we were on day 6 (rural Cuba) to personally collect the baggage from Havana airport ourselves. NOT okay, Iberia/BA. Never again."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Priority boarding and luggage storage."
Cons: "The crew had no control over rowdy/drunk passengers. A shame as young children present. Not one request to calm down and refrain from shouting and swearing. Very uncomfortable and intimidating flight. Will not fly Ryanair again"
Pros: "Online facilities"
Cons: "The police for handbags"
Pros: "Nothing, my worst flying experience since 1993"
Cons: "Check in, why no simple bag drop off? The cabin supervisor never shut up on the microphone, non stop it was, 14hrs later and my ears still thumping"
Pros: "We arrived at our destination"
Pros: "No hassle"
Cons: "Massive queues everywhere. Plane was delayed 40 mins"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Checking in had insufficient staff to deal with the new baggage policy. This is purely another money making scheme and not anything to do with the customer experience. Not only are there additional costs to baggage but also because of queues was insufficient time in duty free had to purchase food on the flight, no doubt part of Ryanair profit makeing scheme. Flight was still delay 30mins"
Pros: "Ease of boarding with priority."
Cons: "Long wait to board, stairs up and down for tarmac stairs to plane and off of plane."
Cons: "No vegan food."
Cons: "Paid for 20kg case not realising it was only one way. They should warn of this when booking"
Pros: "Crew were fab."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Stress of flying nowadays queueing luggage issues."
Pros: "Left outside the plane for 25 min. In the pouring rain with small children. Why start trying to board the plane when obviously it’s not ready to receive passengers."
Cons: "London Luton airport is a nightmare to get into and out of. Avoid if you can. Traffic chaos. Nearly missed our flight."
Pros: "The few were incredibly amazing they were very friendly and educated, always there to help."
Cons: "Flight supposed to start at 18.55 but we didn’t take off until 9.45pm. I ended up paying extra money for a hotel because we arrived at 12.36 and the car rental were closed. A waste of money, no food, not water. Hope to claim back compensation for my hotel stay."
Cons: "Flight bit cramped in seats"
Cons: "They screwed us at every opportunity. I tried to check on online from my smart phone. I was able to acc SS my itinerary and it allowed me to do everything BUT check in. We had to wait to get to the airport, then they said we were too late (we were 90 minutes early). They raped us with 110 pound fee, which was more then we paid for the tickets. Then because we were “late” by their definition they wouldn’t let us take our carry on into the cabin. They forced us to check it. Then on the plane they wanted to charge for a diet drink. We are usually pretty laid back but by this time we were both pretty upset. Obviously."
Cons: "The heat in the cabin was way too high"
Pros: "I liked that I got a seat on the plane and it didn't fall out of the sky"
Cons: "Stansted Airport was just a complete shambles. Ryanair used a gate thhar had almost no seating and the flight left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding as Priority boarding paid for and much improved aircraft since last time I flew with them."
Cons: "Not a great choice of food for a 3hr plus flight but plenty of alcohol! :("
Pros: "What’s there to like?"
Cons: "One of our ticket holders had to have back surgery due to herniated disks and was/is unable to travel. Ryan Air allows for refund requests but does not give refunds! We are unable to get any of the money back and not able to use the tickets. United Airlines on the other hand gave you s a full refund."
Cons: "We were told we had to go to the toilets before taking off as the Toilets were not working on the plane. Also the plane was delayed in taking off."
Pros: "Nice staff, flight was fine"
Cons: "Extras are ridiculous and couldn’t pay through the website so stressed about getting on the flight. Exorbitant cost of carrying a bottle of wine"
Pros: "The price was good, but we certainly got nothing but the absolute basics for the price."
Pros: "Late incoming aircraft. Delayed boarding as we were told that there was a wait for an assistant to facilitate the boarding of a passenger using a wheelchair."
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."
Pros: "Cheap and convenient"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and polite"
Cons: "The boarding procedure at Stanstead is terrible - lots of standing around, partly due to a delayed inbound plane, however we were all still assembled on time and this was not communicated until we were all standing in line. Seat rows are too close together - my knees were pressed against the seat in front the whole flight."
Cons: "A little late setting off"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, nice crew, and plenty of legroom."
Cons: "They did not have a space to add bags for the flight when booking. When we got to the airport, we had to pay an additional 40 pounds each for 4 bags to be taken on the plane, which was DOUBLE per bag than the seats cost ($20 each). When on the plane, I wanted a cup of water and they brought a bottle that cost 5 euros. This airline will nickel and dime you into oblivion."
Pros: "A very cheap flight; we had randomly allocated seats away from each other but as there were few passengers this was not a problem. There was almost a row of seats per passenger so I can't see the benefit of paying to sit together!"
Pros: "New plane. Fast easy boarding with priority pass"
Cons: "No back of seat storage for stuff. Food and drink expemsive No entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was late by an hour."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Long wait before getting on the aircraft"
Pros: "Checked bag for free at gate. Got a window seat"
Cons: "departed 15 mins late."
Pros: "Only the cheap ticket"
Cons: "Only one check in desk at the terminal with one member of staff!? Flight was late for about an hour! 15-20min is fine but one hour plus sitting on a runway for a long time is unacceptable. Especially in my case as I had a connecting flight to Nis and two hours between them. With one hour delay it was really a challenge to catch another flight. £25 charge for a 15kg bag I too much. I'd be more encouraged and travel more often with the ckeck in bag if that would cost 15-20£ but I anymore at this price"
Pros: "Priority boarding was beneficial . Flight landed ahead of schedule ."
Cons: "Not enough milk ! Purchased coffee but milk was scarce , didn't let us know until afterwards ."
Cons: "If we must have random allocated seats and be separated could it be at least boarding on same door. I use my Ryanair app for both of us for check in and it makes boarding chaotic when one is in front and the other at the back"
Pros: "For the price of this ticket the service was really good there are improvements but for the price of the ticket I can't complain at anything"
Pros: "Exellent friendly service by professional staff."
Cons: "On this occasion nothing, which surprisesd me"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. They even charge extra if my wife and I want the privilege of sitting together."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Customer rep at check-in counter was not friendly. Also: 1. Wanted to charge people we were traveling with for printing their boarding pass, when they had their boarding passes on line on their cell phone. 2. Could not just check in luggage at check in counter. Bags were weighed there but then we had to go to a different counter to pay the luggage fees, then return to the check-in counter. Very inconvenient for customers"
Pros: "Advertised price."
Cons: "Check-in was a nightmare. I was on international travel with no PC, only phone and Ipad. I downloaded their ap on the phone, as they do not have an Ipad version. After tedious set up of account, I went through and completed the check-in procedure the day before the flight. However, when I attempted to download my boarding pass, the ap failed. I went to the airport 3 hours early. No attendant to be found so that problem could be resolved. less than 1.5 hours before the flight time, and after standing in line for 1 agent, I was told I could not be checked in, because I did not have a boarding pass, and I would have to purchase one from a service desk (different airline was providing service). The service agent said the Ryanair ap should have worked, and called them to request a waiver on the charge. They refused. I had to go back to the gate desk in order to check in, and very nearly missed my flight. Never again!"
Cons: "The staff had no idea what was going on half the time. I had to wait in 3 different lines and were told 3 different things because I didn't check in before arriving at the airport. Unfortunately, I did not have internet access nor a phone to check-in ahead of schedule. Since the airlines assumed that everyone has this luxury, it wouldn't be a problem."
Pros: "The two seats next to me on the plane were vacant, so I was able to spread out and pretend I was in first class."
Cons: "They have you stand in line 30 mins before the flight. By the time you board the plane, you're stiff and unhappy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour and a half. Rude staff."
Pros: "Price and did not crash"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Love the price"
Cons: "Service can be improved upon"
Pros: "Inexpensive bus ride to London from Dublin."
Cons: "Everything is an upcharge...bag check, food, seating choice...and then bombarded with trinket purchase, donation to charity, beverage and food purchase... Rough landings on both legs of the trip...like pilots still training on how to land. Weather was clear and beautiful, so was not condition- related."
Cons: "I booked this flight from the US 2 months in advance, I first traveled to London and then onto Dublin after a week, I paid extra for guaranteed seats and to check my luggage. When i turned up at the airport after having no internet access for a week I was charged an extra $230 because i had not checked in online or printed my boarding pass. This is nothing more than an outrageous scam designed to swindle travelers out of more money. I will never use Ryanair again."
Cons: "they charge you 46 British Pounds if you do not check in yourself up to 2 hrs before the flight...it says in their written notes that you may have fees if you do not check in yourself....though I think they should write "if you do not check in yourself 2 hrs before the flight 46 Br Pounds fees occur!" None of their self check in terminals at Stansted did not work, their signs where to check in is totally confusing...and their staff is not very friendly...."
