Pros: "Food was hot and tasty."
Cons: "Near 2 hour delay."

Pros: "All is great. Just tired after a long day...."

Pros: "Airport OK. Efficient service. On time arrival."
Cons: "Gate area bit narrow and clumsy. Walk to plane. Deposit your own bag on large trolley outside plane due to opportunistic charging policy of RyanAir. Seat basic no recline. No seat pockets. No wifi. Still paying £200 return.."

Pros: "we did not receive the boading check in pass even we did an online check in and end up we have to pay 55pounds extra"

Pros: "They got us to Manchester alive, although late as always with Ryanair"
Cons: "Everything else, Ryanair provided an awful service, delays on both ends of the journey. No info provided to us and to top it off, there was a screaming child in front of me and next to me."

Pros: "All good - typical Ryanair - on time , comfortable , good crew , no frills - perfect price"
Cons: "Nothing !"

Pros: "The crew were really friendly and helpful. It was painless, quick, and easy :)"

Pros: "Reasonable seat space, good crew"

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: "It was very speedy and the crew were helpful, it was value for money."

Cons: "The plane was faulty so we had to change aircrafts and ended up leaving 2.5hours later than scheduled"

Pros: "Cheap and got to Madrid 15 mins early. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Early Sunday fligh... took 30 mins to queue from motorway to Stansted terminal. If were checking in bag there was a big queue too (I didn't need to). The slowest part was airport security, allow extra 20 minutes at least to get through. Did priority boarding so we didn't queue to board and sat together and had room for our bags (some ended up at feet or in hold)"

Pros: "Ease of being all done online check.in . Seats . Loved the crew the friendliness. The seat comfort and space ."
Cons: "The allowing of drunk passengers on return rude loud quite scary . Crew dealt with them very professionally"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "6 hour delay. 5 euro voucher - that could only buy water. But worse than that was the staff on board. Their rudeness was beyond belief. They: - Stood next to me and bitched about their job and people on board the flight - Laughed about a girl in front of me and her weight - Yelled at me for having my laptop open at the start of our decent (rather than ask me to close it) - Did not apologies once for the delay (which meant I missed a family members birthday) A formal complaint will be written."

Pros: "The air crew were excellent"
Cons: "Communications around boarding and gates was chaotic and our take off was delayed for over an hour. Staff were rude and unhelpful. They seemed confused themselves and found it difficult to communicate anything helpful to passengers"

Cons: "They took my cabin luggage to the cargo even though it is the right size due to no more space in over head compartment and I believe if they where strict about the size with the All Pax and only allowed one price each in the hand the compartments would have been sufficient. You need to make sure to ask pax to be at check in desk 2 hrs before dept during peak periods due to security takes longer time make the story short I was happy with the above all standards Abdullah Benafif."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Allocation of seats saw my wife in 5c and myself in 31d. 31e was vacant."

Pros: "The flight was speedy and the plane was one of the new ones with a new interior, which was a nice change from the flight out to Germany."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and disorganised, the plane set off late as Ryanair always do, there were incredibly loud and rude customers onboard which the staff did nothing about. The seats weren't comfortable at all and the headrests were awful. Generally just an uncomfortable plane, the new design looks nicer but the seats are a lot thinner and it shows Just felt very cheap, the flights weren't even particularly cheap either"

Pros: "There is nothing to like about flying RyanAir"
Cons: "No legroom, seats are cramped. £100 for 1x 20kg bag and £56 to reserve 2 seats. £2 payment charge in order for me to give them money... No entertainment Delayed inexplicably for an hour on the taxiway - no reason given. There aren't even seat-back pockets. Truly awful flight."

Pros: "Seats were more spacious then expected."
Cons: "When checking in I noticed me and my boyfriend were "randomly allocated" seats 10 rows apart. When I called and enquiried about this I was told that I would have to pay to move the seats even though there were 4 seats available next to my boyfriends allocated seat. This is ridiculous seeing as it was not a separate booking and there were plenty of seats available! On the way back my boyfriend was charged 50 euros for a bag which the flight attendant deemed as oversized even though on the way there it was perfectly fine. Her reasoning was that it would have to be put under the plane... When walking to the plane we saw that most people were asked to leave their hand luggage on the tarmac to be put "under the plane" without being charged so essentially we were ripped off yet again!"

Cons: "Just not nice . I know it is budget but whole experience was nasty"

Pros: "It was much, much better than the flight to Ibiza because the passengers were at least civilized ,were quiet & did not cause the crew any problems maybe because they were knackered after partying."
Cons: "Nothing to report. All went well. Very efficient & pleasant."

Pros: "Ryanair compares well with a lot more expensive airlines. It's not perfect by any means but it offers excellent value for money."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding, I had priority boarding pass..I was so confused where to go"

Pros: "Effective service point A to B. Flew from Hamburg Manchester and seated 17A. Leg room good on the exit row."
Cons: "New slimline seats will be difficult for anything more than 2 hours"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful cabin staff"
Cons: "Really cramped seating :-("

Pros: "On time Pleasant cabin crew Fast Track"

Pros: "Nothing I can think of."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. This affect our hotel and taxi arrangements severely. Also the baggage collection was extremey slow and painful with a wait of 1-2 hours."

Pros: "Service on time"
Cons: "People next to me"

Pros: "Overall was fine."
Cons: "The chairs are way far be replaced as they are extremely uncomfortable. Thanks anyway and all the best"

Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "The delay no information why Struggling to find room for your bags when you have paid for luggage Staff where rude when you asked questions why we are late why no room for bags"

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: "flight dayed after boarding. comfortable for an ecomomy flight . no food or drinks purchesed .no entertainment on short haul flighs. overall value on a budget"

Pros: "The flight departed on time and the crew were welcoming on board. The aircraft was clean and tidy. The flight en-route was comfortable, but only as we were asked to move to the emergency exits due to a lack of occupancy. The aircraft arrived on time and disembarkation was efficient. Castellon is a small quiet regional airport and a pleasure to fly from and to. There are now some additional facilities being installed (food and drinks outlets) which will make the experience more comfortable."
Cons: "We pre-paid for speedy boarding and fasttrack. Fasttrack was good but speedy boarding was a waste of money as we were boarded via a single queue onto a bus and then transported to the aircraft. On-board service was chaotic with many passengers around us complaining about the hot food. The method of pre-ordering whilst they then serve the cold service went badly wrong and all around us passenger were complaining about not getting their food. Then it would appear they ran out of one food product which left one passenger behind us very upset and they complained. Our food arrived but it was overcooked and they attempted to overcharge us but did not argue when we pointed out their error. On arrival at Castellon whilst waiting for border entry passengers were queuing onto the tarmac prior to having access to the under-cover terminal. It had been raining but had unfortunately stopped. If it were raining this would not be an acceptable situation and one that Ryanair should address with the airport."

Pros: "As per always, Ryanair are cheap, get you to your destination on time with minimal effort."

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: "Good flight out"
Cons: "A shame there was an hours delay on return journey with no information given"

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Punctuality, cheery crew, decent leg room compared to some other airlines, inability to recline seats (great!)."
Cons: "Lack of seat-back pocket in front for book, newspaper etc."

Pros: "Getting from point A to B is what it's about."
Cons: "The length of time it takes to board and sit, but that's more to do with passengers. The catering service for lack of a better word is slow, very slow in some cases."

Pros: "The crew were professional and VERY entertaining"

Pros: "Did not have food ,no entertainment. The flight back home we were in the queue to board when our hand luggage was tagged to go in the hold. There were many people behind us who we assumed would also be tagged. They weren't !! . We had to wait 30 mins at Malaga to pick up from the baggage reclaim by which time we should have been half way home. We queued to ensure that we were on the plane early so that we could store our hand luggage . Why not just make the people who have checked in hold luggage check in their hand luggage as well. Or at least make it the people who couldn't be bothered to queue or get there early who have this inconvenience We normally fly Ryanair because they're on time and good but this will make us rethink"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, very friendly and professional cabin crew. Good landing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The woman working at the boarding desk. Although we were running late the door was still open and she closed it in front of us and did not let us board the plane making us miss the last flight of the day and for the whole weekend. Horrible staff, terrible airline and costumer service is below acceptable"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Motor sounds"

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Cheap"

Pros: "Ryanair is always and will always be the worst airline ever."
Cons: "Because of how Ryanair works"

Pros: "Cannot complain about the price and allocated seating"
Cons: "Not much food available as advertised Herded into the waiting area before the plane has landed, no seating available there"

Pros: "Comfortable enough that I slept the whole way through the flight. I like the tall seats as they provide moe privacy."
