Airline reviews

Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "We were delayed for nearly an hour."

Cons: "Get rid of the nickel and diming!"

Cons: "Seats are really small and stick together, super uncomfortable for more than 2h"

Cons: "Free refreshments"

Cons: "Facilities at gate 12 at Luton were non existent, plenty of money spent on departure lounge to get money out of people but gates were atrocious with no guidance, space or seats"

Cons: "It could have been on time"

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."

Cons: "On time would have been good and longer than 2 minutes to get to the gate after it came up on the board"

Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarkation"
Cons: "Poor seat pitch. But only a half hour flight so wasn’t really a bother."

Cons: "Flight delay but that was of no issue. Apart from that there was nothing to complain about. Boarding was speedy. Plane was comfortable. Flight was smooth"

Cons: "Both flights there and back we're delayed in total about 4hours and when you're away for a wkend that's a long time!! I've flown with other companies over the last few years and times have been spot on!"

Pros: "Flight on time and arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Not having to put our hand luggage in the hold and delaying our journey home"

Pros: "Worried that the flight wouldn’t make it due to the weather, but except for a little delay everything was very good!"

Pros: "Am very upset with how I got treated"
Cons: "Paid GBP 26.99 to be able to take with me my carry-on that was refused by a groundstaff standing outside and informing me she determined what would happen. Bad bad experience and paying GBP 26,99 for nothing is a real shame"

Pros: "Flight was ok once we finally got on the plane. Very basic but ok for a short flight"
Cons: "Customs clearance que was ridiculous, a massive line that was slow moving. Took well over an hour and got out of control as many people on the flight tried to fight there way to the front. I’ve traveled to many many countries over 30 years and it’s one of the worst travel experiences I’ve had. The one easyjet person that we could find had no clue and all he could do was try and hurry everyone up which added to the panic and made it worse. I won’t be rushing back to france."

Pros: "crews are efficient and polite"

Pros: "Smooth landing, good communication during flight. Lots of food choices to purchase"
Cons: "Thought I had booked an isle seat - maybe my mistake; entertainment was a few magazines"

Pros: "On time, friendly, polished,"
Cons: "No offer of any refreshment"

Pros: "We left about 30 minuets late but flight was great and landed about 25 minutes late"

Pros: "Very efficient. Staff helpful."

Cons: "Minimal leg rooml"

Pros: "The only positive aspect of last night's flight was the helpful, friendly crew."
Cons: "When eventually called to the departure gate we were around an hour and a half delayed so 8.30pm rather than 7pm. We queued along a corridor down a stair case and into the gate itself. It was hot, stuffy and families with small children and pram/, pushchairs were left balanced on the steps. 2 ground crew eventually arrived. No announcements were made. Children cried and got restive as we waited and waited. Eventually we heard our plane arrive at the gate. No announcement from ground crew. We waited. People felt ill. we were called through and herded towards to exit door. We waited, we complained, some decided the train might be a better option."

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: "the crew were great. the flight was smooth. the plane was clean"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, because the plane was on a remote stand and there were no busses to take us to the plane. The gate we were at did have an air-bridge, but for some reason the plane was not able to be brought to the air-bridge. i have never heard such a stupid reason for a delay in my life!"

Pros: "It was horrible we was delayed 40 minuets originally to then be told we was going to be delayed another 3 hours"
Cons: "Because when we needed information about the delay and when we could leave the airport no one could give us any information"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Ends up costing me ½ day of work around £500"

Pros: "Airport restaurants would have been nice...without the overcrowding"
Cons: "Terrible automated check-in. Harried and worried staff. Extra costs. Invasive and slow security. Overcrowded airport. Ancient plane with too many tiny seats. Abrupt and unfriendly service."

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

Pros: "The staff at baggage check in were gracious."
Cons: "Concur with the comments on the ruckus at the gate. Can’t comment on food or entertainment."

Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Crew were welcoming"
Cons: "Flight was full, noisy and one hour late"

Pros: "Flight was packed, boarding was easy, plane was crowded, in flight service felt rushed."

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: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed nearly two hours."

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: "speed of flight and friendliness of the cabin crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Too busy selling food and drink to get me a water"

Pros: "The way Boarding was arranged."
Cons: "Time management was poor"

Cons: "Landing was bumpy."

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: "Fares were very low, boarding was smooth, several seats were empty."
Cons: "We were told that we could only carry on one item, unless we upgraded to Easyjet plus, but we were not able to upgrade because no seats were available, even though the plane was only ~2/3 full. Our 'extra' items were a knitting bag and a laptop bag, but the checkin agents persuaded us that we would need to check the carry ons anyway, which slowed our departure enough that we missed our bus and had to get a taxi (for 200 pounds). Our flight had plenty of empty seats, and there was more than enough room for us to have had our carryons and personal items (which I would have been willing to pay the upgrade fee for, as the total price would still have been competitive."

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."

Pros: "Didn't check in online before getting to the airport and could not get on my plane because they sold my seat. Agents didn't even try to help or care. Had to buy another ticket for full price so made the trip very expensive in the end. Not worth the discount!"

Pros: "Easy bag drop off, checkin, boarding. No entertainment but at the price didn't matter. Early boatding , plane left exactly on time."

Cons: "Very late"

Cons: "No communication- the app told us more than they were willing to"

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"

Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aeroplano"

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"

Pros: "Although flight was late they made up time pretty well"
Cons: "Flight to and from Carcassonne is rarely on time"

Pros: "nothing."
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: "Straightforward process"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "The price of checking a bag cost twice as much as the flight...just the process of getting the bag checked was stressful would’ve been better served taking the train"

Cons: "Delayed an hour."

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but nothing to tell us it was delayed apart from the screens. I got priority booking for the flight and on the way home no one shouted or got priority passengers over so it was a waste of money."

Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "Waiting in hallway and then tarmac to board."

Cons: "Boarding at Stansted not good. Security took too long. When we arrived at the gate the departure board stated "final call" however the gate hadn't opened yet? No communication as to reason for this delay."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Lateness and the waiting in the area to board with about 6 other flights in a small area with confusing announcements"

Pros: "I took 1230 flight from stansted airport to Edinburgh. I carried a personal baggage with me on the plane then flight attendant took it away and told me I will get it back at the arrival belt. When I landed I couldn’t find mine. I had reported to the ground desk and they not helpful at all. So now I lost all of my travel documents and money. I feel so bad. This Tuesday I will fly back to Thailand and still don’t know how to redo my passport."

Cons: "Issues getting checked in. Multiple lines which we were ushered from and to only to be told to go back to self check kiosk. By the time we get to self check kiosk for the 2nd time our gate is closed and we’ve missed our flight. Not sure why the person at the check in counter couldn’t check our bags for us and get us moving through security??? No offer of any reimbursement and additionall cost for new flight later in the day at more than twice the cost of the flight we missed. Lack of clear direction or any semblance of customer service. I guess you get what you pay for..."

Pros: "Nothing although crew were friendly"
Cons: "3 hour delay in both directions this week. No announcements made about delay. Gates changed 2x. Poor communication throughout. Email from Ryanair about cancellation/refund options received AFTER flight. Got home at 1 am. Truly horrible experience"

Pros: "We managed to arrive."
Cons: "I disliked the lack of information about the delays, the poor facilities and extremely rude staff. It’s understandable that they’ve been working all day, but unfortunately this is the job they chose and I am paying for service of which I should be satisfied with."

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 price. Period"
Cons: "Legroom non-existent. Sardines have more room in their can."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, no info, bad service on board"

Pros: "Very unorganized and discretion about what was a carry on bag differed. I was charged an extrodinary fee while others did not."

Pros: "Still have not left London"

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: "legs space"

Cons: "I hated the way people are processed at Stansted airport..... they seem to have invented several new ways to do things and I felt pretty much like cattle !!! The part inside the airplane were just fine....."

Pros: "Nothing. It is hard to imagine businesses advertise on the plane. Why would any reputable business want to be associated with this company?"

Pros: "Nothing. Utterly horrible experience."
Cons: "I checked in two days in advance, had to pay for the check-in and baggage fee. There was no link sent to me to print out my boarding pass When we got to Stansted, there were no working kiosks. We went to the check-in desk, where apparently many people were having the same problem we were. My wife and I were told by a very rude Ryanair employee we hadn't checked in. I showed the woman my email receipt and she refused to honor it. We are challenging the charge on our credit card. She lectured us on showing up to the airport two hours in advance. We told her we had, but had been in line for 50 minutes. My wife paid 50 pounds each to check us in, even then the security set up was... labyrinthine. And mind you, I say that knowing full well how long an airport security line can be. When we got to the point where we were supposed to hand our boarding passes over to be scanned and verified, mine wouldn't work. I waited there while the security officer called the desk we'd just come from to verify I was allowed to fly. Mind you, we were being told the gate was about to close, so time was precious. After getting through that and security, we encountered another problem. If you don't know, Stansted airport is actually a mall with an airport somewhere inside. We ran through a long, snaking corridor of shops, following signs saying "all gates." It was an absurdly long run. I don't think I've seen any other airport laid out so poorly, most have shops mixed in with gates, but not Stansted. The gates are all at the end of this silly commercial strip. But not really, you see... when we got to the end, there were no gates, but trams to another terminal. We boarded the tram, got to our terminal and ran even faster to make our flight. Luckily, Ryanair is so disgustingly disorganized that the flight was delayed. Amazingly that which caused us so much stress ended up saving us. I will never fly on this pathetic, god-forsaken airline again. It is a scam designed to filch people who are in a desperate position out of money. Also, I would advise anyone to stay away from Stansted airport. Seriously, I've flown extensively in the Americas and have encountered some pretty chaotic facilities, but Stansted was utterly soviet in its disorganization. I'd rather wait for a bus at New York City's Port Authority bus station, navigating vomiting hobos, than deal with Ryanair, or Stansted airport, ever again."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Everyone, EVERYTHING, horrible customer service!!!"

Pros: "Just everything was so easy and straight forward. No issues and no hassles"

Pros: "I didn't like anything about the experience"
Cons: "Customer services aren't very helpful have a figure it out attitude. Don't tell you proper information. Not even employees to with customer demand. I will never ride with again!"

Pros: "Good flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight taxied from gate more than 40 minutes late. We stood in line to board for well over an hour."

Cons: "I checked in online as instructed. Then at the airport I am told I am not checked in, that online check in is over and that I have to pay £50 PER PERSON to get printed boarding passes. Then the flight was delayed over 90 minutes."

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: "Unaware you were not allowed to take coffee on the jet bridge let alone the plane. I guess so you will buy theirs? Wish I had not spent 4 pounds on a coffee they confiscated."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was not part of the deal. Fine with me."
Cons: "Everything was fine. 15 minute early arrival."

Cons: "Awful"

Pros: "The team was nice."
Cons: "DELAY on this route is very normal appearance."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cattle car approach. Cost saving is commendable. Charging for EVERYTHING is not."

Cons: "Tight seating."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Charging £66+ just to print a boarding pass at the airport is ridiculous."

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: "Timing"

Cons: "Almost everything : surprise charge for not having printed out a boarding pas before I got to the airport : extortionate fee for checking on one bag : I guess I've been spoiled on other airlines with the privilege of being able to take a bag of luggage. This, together with the penalty for not checking in online more than doubled the cost! : be prepared for a long wait : very disorganized at the airport : they want you to arrive very early. : one of the flight attendants was pretty rude. : the flight was about an hour late : moral of the story is never take luggage on Ryanair : it's only meant for travelers who can keep up with the hidden fee schedule, travel light and who can put up with discomfort."

Cons: "Late, high extra fees for bags, horrible checkin process"

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: "Cheap travel"
Cons: "We were delayed two hours, with no announcements of changes. You needed to watch the boards and if you missed it, you missed the flight even after you had sat there for two hours."

Cons: "Was late almost one hour"
