Cons: "It could have been on time"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, normal easy jet flight, not expensive, short on space and just about ok on comfort. But, good flight times and reasonable cost. There was a very big man in my row, with his small wife, he just about fitted on,but I don't think of have accepted him sitting next to me."
Pros: "On time departure, professional crew and comfortable seat for flight duration."
Cons: "30 min delay on arrival due to stand occupied by another easyJet aircraft."
Pros: "easy, no fuss boarding and flight"
Cons: "the queuing to have your bags scanned as you board your flight was confusing as there were 3 queues in the same space for flights leaving within 10 minutes of each other. Not a big deal, but someone explaining which queue to those at the back would have been helpful"

Cons: "Cramped Seating"

Pros: "Am very upset with how I got treated"

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "2-hour delay due to "crew welfare issues" Even after a 2-hour delay, they let more cabin baggage on board than was possible to stow in the lockers, resulting in rather chaotic scenes around transfer of baggage to the hold, and adding toi delay.. Entirely avoidable"

Pros: "No having to have hassle of traveling"
Pros: "crews are efficient and polite"
Pros: "On time, friendly, polished,"
Cons: "No offer of any refreshment"
Pros: "Overall Easyjet is an ok airline, I will continue to fly with them, however, small things like paying extra for speedy boarding and then not having a separate line is a real disappointment. Given the option I would pay a the extra to fly with a better airline, however, being from Northern Ireland we are limited to what we can have."
Pros: "It was horrible we was delayed 40 minuets originally to then be told we was going to be delayed another 3 hours"

Cons: "We were three and a quarter hours delayed"

Pros: "Plane boarded early and took off on time but landed 15 minutes early fantastic as I caught an earlier but that i thought I would get"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow Seat was very uncomfortable, it is like they discriminate against tall people, leg space gets less and less by the year"
Pros: "It was obvious that we had a excellent pilot ( captain) from very nice take off to a very present landing and well on time. Well done Easy Jet. I will definitely book with you again."
Cons: "Very unpleasant person sitting next to us however that was not Easy Jets fault."
Pros: "Friendly staff, food ok"
Cons: "Shepherded into a small area with very few seats, and anyway, we were held in lanes like sheep! Seating on the plane - narrow and little space between rows. Had to wait quite a while for baggage to arrive."
Cons: "Booked wrong date before confirmation came phoned to cancel was told I couldn't have a refund would never use easy jet again"
Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"
Cons: "Landing was bumpy."

Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"
Pros: "Long Queue at Stanstead but got through quickly. Boarding easy. Had a wine, chicken baguette and crisps - good. Good conversation with next passenger"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Very aggressive requirement to pack my small headphone bag into an already cramped carry on suitcase. It too three tries! Silly really cos it all flew anyway!"
Pros: "It got me to Naples."
Cons: "The flight was late taking off by an hour, we received messages that it was going to be late, but by only ten minutes. Even at the desk, a long line formed at the original boarding gate, before we were told that the gates were chaning to one at the other end of the building. Then made to queue at the gate for half an hour, then sat in the plane for an hour. Plus on top of that it was from Stansted which is the worst aiport."
Pros: "Crew always good."
Cons: "Delays, flight called way ahead of actual boarding and long delay getting off flight and in to terminal."
Cons: "Very late"
Cons: "No communication- the app told us more than they were willing to"
Pros: "It did what it said on the tin -- cheap, no frills, polite staff."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."
Pros: "On time, welcoming crew on board"
Cons: "Request to put small handbag into half empty flight bag is just petty. If easyJet insist on checking customers through and then holding them in a pen, they should provide facilities/seating - we are not cattle but that is the impression given."
Pros: "On time fantastic !"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, attentive and helpful where possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes but there was almost no information about this other than the EasyJet app, even the airport boards provided misinformation. A last minute gate change brought upon a stampede, the flight was overbooked, and whilst not EasyJet's fault, 20 children on a midnight flight did not make for an enjoyable experience."

Cons: "No reveling seat, no water available and no jet way."
Pros: "Humor of the pilot"
Cons: "One hour delay, which we had to be in the plane, and was VERY hot inside, like 35C+ and more. Total inappropriate. Noise from passengers. Tight places between seats in front of me and me. Tight places on seats between me and next passenger next to me. FastTrack was not so fast, didn't felt it is something special and priority for me and my wife. Had to wait with the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "The crew and the pilots were very nice!!"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The bureaucracy over an extra bag that took 7 different conversations to resolve."

Pros: "Just everything was so easy and straight forward. No issues and no hassles"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the experience"

Pros: "The ride wasn't bumpy, The pilot was careful and the weather was nice."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "It was cheap"

Cons: "DELAY on this route is very normal appearance."
Cons: "I'd rather pay more to have a more relaxed experience."
Pros: "It's affordable and Ryanair offer a lot of routes, so really when you're planning a complicated trip, they're a good option at times."
Cons: "Their check-in systems are really brutal. We were flying with a 20 month old and had overweight bags. We were happy to pay for them but we had to go find an attendant to take our payment because their automated system doesn't do that. I know they're saving money on staffing but I had to seriously consider if it was worth saving a few hundred dollars to go through some pretty epic frustration."
Cons: "Tight seating."
Cons: "seats are too crammed and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Love the price"
Cons: "Service can be improved upon"
Pros: "I do not like the idea not able to take my hand luggage on the plane"
Cons: "Awful checkin staff"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Free snack and 1 water could have been nice"
Cons: "The price is extremely misleading as they charge almost as much a ticket per luggage."
Pros: "Nothing. Do not fly. They are horrible and have horrible service."
Cons: "When we got up to the register we had to fork up over $80 for bags that could have even been carry-on's. While booking there was nothing stated about these charges. If this was going to be a charge it should have been made clear. Very unimpressed and displeased with the service from Ryanair."
Pros: "It was very poor and misleading regarding the price. To charge 45 Pounds for a suitcase borders on rip off."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"

Pros: "Great boarding , on time! Friendly helpful staff . Just really good experience"

Cons: "Service was poor, plane was hot, not my best flight experience by far"
Pros: "The first leg of my trip was good."
Cons: "Pegasus first changed my 2hr layover to 24hrs then cancelled my second flight entirely without informing me. I was unable to rebook an alternative flight as they require the vendor, pricline to sort it out and priceline can only communication is email. So maybe in a week they'll sort it out. It is a totally ridiculous and irresponsible situation for these businesses to create. I had to buy a whole new ticket to reach my destination. People at the Pegasus desk at the airport were beyond unhelpful and I've spent hours on the phone while on vacation trying to sort it out."
Cons: "The company could have alerted of the 25€ you have to pay for stepping out of the airport."
Pros: "It was ok."
Pros: "Flight timing was good"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit complicated"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Unhelpful and unfriendly crew"

Cons: "Huge delay from my flight to Turkey and again a delay returning to Germany."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "No one smiles or tries to help, the Baggage weighing is farcical as people get on in Turkey with three hand luggage’s. Flight was late, no explanation and no apology. Pre flight safety and general announcements are made as fast as possible. Unintelligible"
Pros: "Easy flight and friendly staff."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Oh wow there’s a long list: -flight was late -no food or drinks were offered -seats were dirty -plane was dirty -staff spoke very limited English -every single food we ordered was “sold out” -credit. At cpayments we’re not accepted -toilets were not clean I could continue but the above suffices."
Pros: "From clealininess of the planes to the professional and sincere approach of the cabin crew, Pegasus is by far the best budget airline I have ever flown in the world. Their in flight menu prices are much affordable compared to most European airports (water is cheaper on the flight, compared to Berlin airport for example) For these prices, and this quality, they are uncompeted. I really hope they can maintain these cheap prices all the time."
Cons: "first of all the prices of drinks are very high and they rip you off since there is no option. but with that i can live. what i cant live with they try to save on gas and till you dont yell they dont turn on the AC and then they try again to lower it and again you have to complain. i hope to never fly with them again and when you say something you get a sour face"
Pros: "good crew."
Cons: "very not comfortable chairs"
Pros: "Professional crew paying fit"
Cons: "Paying for drinks"
Pros: "price good -- and it worth try again -- get more from this price"

Cons: "Checked in only to find out that someone checked allready with my name and he is sitting in my seat. The next bomber?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Public address system loudspeaker on plane was quite loud"
Pros: "This is a budget airlines, compare to Ryanair seats Pegasus Airlines seats has more leg room, especially I have long legs I need more leg room."
Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"
Pros: "Efficient and polite crew, nice flight, nice take off and landing."
Cons: "Delayed for 30 minutes."
Pros: "Quick flights"
Cons: "Long layover in inexciting airport Long, congested lines to board planes"
Pros: "Connecting flight to Stockholm was cancelled. Had to fly to Copenhagen and perchuse another flight with SAS When complaining to their staff the answer I received was that no other airline would even give me an option to fly to Copenhagen (where I was not headed by the way) in short - paid another 300$, got to Stockholm 3 hours late and will never fly them againb"
Cons: "Poor everything is poor, they are very bad specially the crew when u check in they will let u pay even for the hand baggage extras kg even if u did shopping from the duty free they will let you pay for the weight. The worst crew ever."

Cons: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Cons: "Wasn't informed of any delays. Every flight was delayed or rescheduled! Nobody was informed of anything that was happening. I will never fly again with Pegasus"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Not even water is offered. You must buy everything. We boarded over an hour late and then sat on the plane for nearly an hour. Seats very uncomfortable. A lot of very small and upset children. Due the late take off I had no time to get food during my layover and so I bought a hot meal. It was mediocre at best for 11 euro. There was no drink served with it but sold separately. Then it took over an hour for my tray to be picked up."
Pros: "I was lucky enough to have the seat next to me free, so I was comfortable during the flight itself"
Cons: "The ground service was really bad and even insulting. I was a little overweight and the girl at the counter was very rude, and eventually made me through away snacks I was keeping for the flight. Also, the weight limit is ridiculous if you're travelling for more than a weekend (I went on a 3 weeks trip with camping). On the flight itself there's nothing provided, even when I asked for water they charged me for it (no option for just a glass of water)."
Pros: "Flight delay was for 50 minutes..."
Cons: "Respect you flights timing.."
