Pros: "Perfect!"
Cons: "Respect the schedule. Thank you!"

Pros: "Price of flight was good."
Cons: "Price of snacks is a rip-off. Seating is cramped."

Pros: "Getting here safe"
Cons: "Waiting to broad"

Pros: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."

Pros: "La atención de la señora en Client Service"

Cons: "The announcements made by the main air steward were mostly unintelligible due to a very strong Spanish accent."

Cons: "flight landing"

Cons: "I am 6’3” I have been placed in the middle seat on four flights. The flight attendants and airport staff are the worst, they’re supposedly never wrong."

Cons: "No point paying priority boarding.... people just swap seats if not allocated next to each other makes it all feel like a messy shambles.... once sat down flight was quick and pleasant.... never ate or drank anything on board as extortionate prices... so the money saved there went on tapas and wime"

Cons: "Check in was horrific. We weren’t able to print our boarding passes earlier. Not easy to do in Morocco. We were hassled at Marrakech airport. Had to wait in separate line for boarding pass-backed up for a half hour. They HAND WROTE BOARDING PASS. And charged us an additional 100 Euros. Inappropriate"

Cons: "They charged us an additional 55 Euro per person for a boarding pass even when we have checked in on-line the night before."

Cons: "They charge extra for everything! Who can print their boarding pass while traveling?! And there’s no way to print it well in advance. The seats were very uncomfortable and not one staff member smiled the whole time. I won’t take the airline again no matter how cheap it is"

Pros: "Cabin temperature was comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly. At check-in I was given the option to add a second cabin bag and have priority boarding for only €7. Ryanair sent me a text message reminder to check in on-line, or else I would have had to pay extra at the airport."
Cons: "I do not like the bus connections from the gate to the airplane. It is always a hassle and people are packed in the buses like sardines. I understand that Ryanair is a budget airline, but they should offer free beverages."

Cons: "The gate for boarding was supposed to close at 1205pm but they didn’t announce the gate until 11:30am. The flight was supposed to take off at 12:35pm but there was no announcement of delay, all of the attendants said that everything was on schedule, yet boarding didn’t even start until 1230pm. They randomly took people out of line and told them their bags were too big and made them pay 50 euro, even though their bags still went in the same hold and they were no bigger than anyone else’s when later compared. It was an international flight and multiple people didn’t even have to show their passports. Then on the plane we sat on the runway for about another hour and didn’t takeoff until 1:40pm. The take off was one of the worst I’ve ever experienced. The seats were basically lawn chairs glued to the ground and the aisles aren’t large enough for the crew so they were constantly bumping everyone in the aisle seats. The landing felt like the plane was going to flip over and crash and then on top of everything we were told that Ryanair didn’t have enough employees to take our luggage off of the plane."

Cons: "Boarding chaotic, late departure with no explanation"

Pros: "It flew"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour with no communication. Wouldn’t let us check in online and then we’re penalized $150 to check in at airport. Boarding stared and we waited on the gate for 30+ min along with all other passengers. No communication from crew. No crew or staff working gate. No gate announced until after flight departure time. Overall awful."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Things that went wrong; 1- gate switched at the last minute. 2- the flight departed 30 minutes later. 3. At boarding, as Americans, we were singled out and had to pay €50!! For our carry on. This was the third airline we in our European vacation. No one else was being asked and had bigger bags then we did. I told them that they had to be consistent with everyone that was going by to make sure that they also paid. But they didn't even bother to check People with European passports. We will never ever flight with this airline agin. We don't recommend it. The airplane was old. The seats were torn. And the landing was horrible."

Pros: "I ultimately got to my destination."
Cons: "- Was charged left and right until I paid twice for my ticket. I even paid to get my boarding pass. - Boarding was a mess. Passengers were blocked in a hot area, then in the stairs for an hour before boarding - Flight was an hour half late - Flight crew was rude and systematically failed to resolve a seat assignment problem. They mocked a passenger instead of admitting they were wrong about not checking for the error in the seat assignment - More of an annoyance; Flight crew was constantly selling stuff, from drinks to cheap fragrance and scratch lottery cards. In summary, Ryan Air is a scam and an embarrassment to the industry."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE AGAIN, staff is rude and poorly trained in the customer service department, hidden fees/ 50 euros to CHECK IN!!!"

Pros: "Good leg space."
Cons: "Charging processing fee if checking in is not done online before you arrive at the airport."

Pros: "The price of the flight and convenient travel times kept making their flights more attractive. The flight itself was very nice and comparable to any other airline despite comments I had read about steep lift offs and advertisements blaring the whole time. None of that happened."
Cons: "Of course the price of the Ryanair flights is what lures you in., but just about EVERYTHING else after that is stressful with this airline. All their rules must be followed precisely or you'll pay through the nose. After painstaking finding the right sized roller bags and under seat sack and making sure I was well within the weight limit, they never measured or weighed either of them. I also saw plenty of carry-on luggage way bigger than mine come on board and go into the overhead bins just fine. Kind of pissed me off. The price to check bags is SO SO high, but with the limited weight you can take in the carry-on, you almost have to check a bag unless you're doing a short 3-5 day trip."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No food to choose from and very expensive"

Pros: "Not many things, I have got to the destination in one piece"
Cons: "Almost everything releated to the flight from point A to point B was horrible. This was the first and last time I have ever flight with ryanair. People need to know how poor the airline is, and the airline needs yo improve in almost every aspect related"

Pros: "Arrived in Barcelona 20 minutes ahead of schedule! The flight was smooth and he crew was energetic."

Cons: "delayed, rude service, unclear signage for boarding"

Cons: "When I got to the airport they made my family pay 200 Euros for not checking in online! This is basically robbery, since I had no choice but paying it without ruining the trip of a lifetime. I've never encountered such a fee from any other airline. It's true that they sent an email warning a couple days before, but I was already traveling, so didn't check my email very carefully. I chose Ryanair in order to save money, despite their planes being less comfortable (seats don't lean back at all) and I don't mind too much having to walk onto the runway in order to board the plane. I very careful to to exceed their very strict carry-on weight limits. But in the end it still wound up being the most expensive and frustrating option."

Pros: "The staff were nice people."
Cons: "I was stopped and told my bag would not fit as carry-on. It is a lie flat out because no other airline has ever said something about my bag. I was made to check it upon boarding. No free amenities, no food, no water, for a 150 euro ticket. You're all insane."

Cons: "Got a good ticket price (about $50 for two people) but then was socked with about $350 as a luggage fee."

Pros: "The flight was affordable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats didn't recline and no free beverage (water) served. Lower luggage weight limit than major airlines."

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hrs late. They charged for everything, even a drink."

Cons: "What can you expect from Ryanair? They treat their passengers like kettle when boarding. Specifically we had to stand and in a hot anghar before boarding for 40 mins. No seats, water or idea why we have to wait there rather than the airport. I experienced it so many times and tell myself never again. if I have an option I never fly with them."

Pros: "Fast boarding and deplaning. Organized luggage stowage. Friendly crew."
Cons: "The legroom has gotten to be a joke. What's next? The honey-comb? If you can't have pockets on the back of the seat, it's gone too far."

Cons: "The staff was very rude and the airline lost my bag even though it had to bright name tags on it. They minimal effort to find and now I'm abroad with nothing, thanks Ryanair!"

Pros: "Price was a lure, but not really when you get all the catches"
Cons: "Literally everything. Flying Ryan air is like flying with a team of used car salesmen. Take any other airline and you'll be better off"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "i tried to check in online but could not do so on the website. i added the app and checked in. The app informed me that this was not a mobile boarding pass which I could oinly get from the web site which wioud not work on a smart phone. At check in counter, I was charged 100 Dirham ($10) to get a hand scribbled boarding pass. I got a series of anxiety inducing emails before the trip which were completely unnecessary."

Cons: "The flight was overcrowded, cramped, and loud. The passengers were boisterous with no attempt by the crew to control them for the comfort of other passengers."

Pros: "RyanAir line failed to help me when my main air fare was delayed and I came super late to Barcelona, unable to make any sort of help for me to be able to fly to Sevilla."
Cons: "I wish I could use a stand by ticket to Sevilla, but not even that I could get. Maybe a Ticket credit would be very helpful to use for a future flight."

Pros: "Website confusing. Check in is not checking in! No help at airport otherr then go to terminal T1. Website at airport did not work!? Flight was 2 hour late to destination.by"

Pros: "Very Professional"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Cheap fair"
Cons: "At gate they removed our handbags with checked baggage because no space is available inside. But when we boarded more than half of the overhead storage was empty! This was a 45min trip and this attitude costed us another 1h wait time in the airport because we had to move and wait for the bags at the baggage claim area etc... total waste of time"

Cons: "Big unadvertised feea. You end up paying much more in the end & feel like you're trapped in a scam after you bought the tickets. See examples: - to print out your boarding pass at the airport -to check EVEN ONE bag -to get a cup of water - multiple small inconveniences & lack of service on every front, even compared to other stripped down no frills carriers Delays! Cheap seats with an ad for food purchase plastered on the back seat in front of you. Repeated attempts to sell extras - food, drinks, jewelry, perfume up & down aisles by embarrassed flight attendants Bad service & total disrespect for & misunderstanding of their customer and even their own employees. It's unbelievable. Skip this airline!"

Pros: "Super quick and easy check in"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment or reclining seats."

Pros: "Pricing of flight itself was great."
Cons: "Having to actually print out boarding passes to avoid a $60 charge. Bagge charges for first bag of about $35 each."

Cons: "My daughter and I were traveling together and my flight was booked a day earlier than hers due to miscommunication. When I asked to change either of our flights (so we could be on the same flight), they wanted to charge full price to change flights. I declined to pay that much and was crying prior and during flight. When I asked the flight attendant for a water to take medicine with (showed them my pill) they wanted to charge me for a water even though I was obviously upset (my nose and eyes were red)! Very disappointing experience with Ryannair!!!"

Pros: "Cheap prices"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled the night before we were to leave and there were no flights available until four days later to our next destination. We got a refund but per EU laws, they should cover the price of our new flights."

Pros: "The whole experience was smooth and painless, and considering it's a budget airline, no real complaints. But you have to remember this is a budget airline so this is no-frills to the extreme-- you pay for things you are not accustomed to flying "normally." (See below)"
Cons: "We were fortunately well informed, so none of this was surprising or a major obstacle to us, but remember: Absolutely *nothing* is included. You must pay to check baggage, and by weight (regular or "large" ... "Large" being just a typically full, full sized suitcase) and must pay online in advance or the price to do so at the airport is ridiculous. You must pay for ANY refreshments on the plane-- no free pretzels, no free water. Pack snack/buy drinks past security if you can't go without. Expect to pay extra for anything other than a seat (assigned seats are extra) on the plane and you won't be disappointed."

Pros: "the staff did their job and were accommodating. The plane brought me from Rome to Barcelona"
Cons: "I purchased a ticket from Ryan air the night before my flight. My first Ryanair purchase. When I arrived at the airport they held my boarding pass until I paid an additional 45 euro for a process they call checking in. The checking in process allows them to require the customer to print their own border pass and enter identifying information at least 2 hours before departure, passing inconvenience to the customer for profit. The email that contains instructions for checking in provides first the confirmation number in bold letters, then a receipt of the purchase followed by a page of advertisements and sales offers. After scrolling past these solicitations one can find a link to checking in in fine print. So far, no other low cost airline I have taken abides by this practice. (Spirit, frontier, American, United, JetBlue, southwest etc.) The boarding process did not allow for efficient queuing causing a line to form that was a couple hundred meters long that extended down the main airport walkway. The final result was a delay of 45 minutes to 1 hour after scheduled departure time resulting in a delay of transportation to city center and any connections."

Cons: "Extra fees for luggage. Tiny seats w/out reclining"

Pros: "My experience was terrible from the beginning of it to the end."
Cons: "They have the worst customer service. Though we checked in advance and arrived nearly 3 hours prior to our flight, we still struggled to have a smooth flight experience, their communications skills and attitude is unprofessional. They pick and choose who they want to assist with manner & respect. It's my first flight with them & it couldn't have been any worse. Their carry on policy was radiclious! I had the smallest carry on than any one in that flight, but my bag had hard corners & I didn't want to squeeze it into their measurement to avoid damage, but they wouldn't listen or even try to comprehend as I try to explain to them. They seem to upset almost all the passengers on that flight. Their boarding process was very an organized & untimely. Unfortunately I have two other flights booked with them and if I had time and if it wasn't so expensive to book last minute flights, I wouldn't histate to cancel it and fly with different airlines."
