Cons: "It is very uncomfortable to fly 5 hours on a seat without the possibility to lean back. The fixed back of the seat might be acceptable on short flights, but not on a 5 hours flight."

Pros: "Despite an hour's delay on the runway (not easyJet's fault) and some turbulence, we still arrived with time to spare for our onward travel, so the pilot must have made up some lost time."
Cons: "The wait on the runway - French Air Traffic Control strike."
Pros: "Straight forward, no hassle flight. Staff (cabin crew) were pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Nice crew, on-time flight"
Pros: "Old aircraft and most uncomfortable poor seat and leg space"
Pros: "Empty seat next to me. Arrived a few minutes early. Looked like a new plane: was Austrian registered which is new for EZY (thank you Brexit)"
Cons: "Boarding process always feels more irritating than it should."
Cons: "On the flight home from Milan to Barcelona they charged me 67 Euros to check one bag even though on the flight to Milan I was allowed to bring it as a carry on and check it at the gate for free."
Pros: "Excellent. Flight was on Time . Easy to board and no problems! Would fly easy jet again!"
Cons: "1h 50 minutes this time"
Pros: "Once I got to the plane, everything was fine. The crew did their best to accommodate everyone. ."
Cons: "It was getting there that was a pain. I am a handicapped passenger, traveling alone, walking on a cane. When you enter Terminal 1, you have to turn left and walk about 150 meters to an "assistance station" to get a wheelchair before you even check in for the flight. So for me it was walk 150 meters to wait for a wheelchair, be wheeled back to the airline's desk to check in, then go back the way you came to pass through security. (By the way, in the UK, you must remove all gels for a separate inspection, meaning toothpaste and shampoo, and they must be 100ml or less, or else you must check the bag.) After that rigmarole, you don't even go to the gate, because the flight doesn't have a gate assignment until about 35 minutes before departure. Then I had to climb stairs to get to the cabin. Shouldn't an airport in a market this large have jet bridges for every flight?"
Pros: "That we had priority boarding because 2e had a small child with us"
Cons: "There was a delay on both flights. I had a small child with me which was hard ."
Cons: "Return flight on Friday night cancelled, no reason given. Next alternative offered Monday afternoon, still awaiting compensation."
Pros: "Fligh attended were so friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle for not only for us " family of 4" but also for a lot of customers. So basically one of the boarding workers went through the line and ask how many luggage do we have. My dad said she already checked once while we were waiting by the gate. Anyway we made the line and basically the 2 nd time that she checked our loggage and I said we r 4 ppl and each one carry on and she said that besides carry on we had 2 back pack which we fit laptops . She checked and left and when we start boarding the said oh wait here you have 2 back pack so we need to pay for each carry on €60. She not only pulled us out of the line but also asked too many customers to go out of the line and fit even their small purse inside carry on. I was so mad cuz she already asked 2 times Before boarding and she didn't say anything. And during boarding she made us to leave the line and got the back packes inside the carry on . We travelled 3 countries in Europe w one back pack and one carry on. This was my first time ever experiencing this . I would never ever take any flight w easy jet again."
Pros: "Flew from Manchester to Hamburg. Seated exit row in 11C. Leg room great. Crew was efficient. Good cheap flight. Delayed but kept well informed."
Cons: "Delay and boarding in Manchester. 'Now boarding' on notice board 10 mins before flight arrived."
Pros: "left and landed on time"
Pros: "Take off to landing everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hours to get to the aeroplane. 1 hour in easyJet queue. 1 hour in security. Only just made the flight. People should be fired for this continued incompetence and poor customer service."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Pathetic website. Charges for everything other airlines provide upfront. Unable to reach their customer service call center or chat room which were always unavailable. I will not fly with their f**ked up service again."
Pros: "Fairly cheap flight."
Cons: "The baggage fee is very confusing and I paid extra for my luggage returning not knowing that the fee for luggage covered there and back. When I asked for a refund they denied me."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, once we were permitted onto aircraft the boarding was quick as both forward and rear doors were used."
Cons: "The crew didn't bother to offer a full retail service on board, aircraft had seat pads missing, crew sat eating for bulk of journey. Delayed inbound meant plane was over an hour late, and not cleaned between service."
Pros: "It was an easy quick trip! No problems. Kind service."
Cons: "We had bags to check and had to pay $50 extra per bag. We weren't aware we had to check them prior to checking in for flight. It took forever and we had trouble when having to return to show proof of payment. Not a good experience in Nice."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and onboard refreshments ok. Staffs were polite so on the scheme of things it was a good flight."
Cons: "Did not see in kayak that no baggage was included and also could not add luggage. Went to the airport with time enoight to do it there annd they charged me €100 for a bag and skis. They say no baggage was included and adding in the airport costs more. When said i did not see the baggage option in kayak they told me i first have to book in kayak, then go to easyjet. Com and modify the booking to add luggage. So easyjet ends up being all but easy. I enden paying 180€ instead €80 for this reson."
Pros: "With an obvious broken foot, I was first ignored and rudely spoken to by the gate crew. I wanted info on preloading and was dismissively told to wait for boarding. Finally, when boarding was about to start, a new agent appeared who cheerfully helped me and other disabled passengers. I was able to board early...that's the one good thing."
Cons: "My check in experience was horrific! Because of my broken foot I cannot walk long distances and had requested assistance. The agent check-in told me I had arrived too late for assistance and it would not be available to me. I almost started to cry because the gate is so far away. It was with the help and kindness of two strangers in line that I was able to get a chair and be wheeled to the gate. I had arrived one hour and 45 minutes prior to my flight but was told I was too late for assistance. After the check-in agent gave me the information she completely ignored me! I wish I had her name."
Pros: "Went from A to B."
Cons: "They charge for bags, first flight was overbooked so we almost didn't get on, the people at the gate had no interest in being even somewhat sympathetic. It would be nice if at some point during the check in process or ticket buying process were told that we can only bring one carry on so my girlfriend and I aren't scrambling to fit everything into one bag outside the gate. Also the crew took our coats from us when we had them on our seat because they said they needed to stow them, which makes no sense. I would not and will not recommend easyjet to anyone."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and friendly....lovely!!"
Pros: "Flight went well, staff was great, there was a class on a type of field trip that made boarding difficult but other than that everything was fine"
Pros: "Crew was nice, flight good"
Cons: "You changed the airplane and didn't tell your customers. I did't have my seat and we had to wait 5-10 min before getting seated. We were already on the plane when we discovered what was happening, blocking the aisle. Very unconfortable"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "First, when getting my boarding pass I was NEVER notified that I had the right of one bag only inside the cabin. Once I reached the gate I had to check in one bag and pay a ridiculous amount for it (more than the ticket itself) You should be much more proactive in communicating this as most airlines allow one bag and one personal item on board, so most of travelers might be used to this policy. Then, seating space is very cramped, not even a drink is complementary, and it is not very tasteful to have the place full of advertisements and have a market inside the plane"
Pros: "Easy app use and automated check-in. Score!"
Cons: "Last row on the A320 and doesn't have a window so makes it feels very cramped and uninviting."
Pros: "Comply plane and nice staffs with a decent variety of snacks, sandwiches and drinks."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours delayed. Multiple times I asked for an update and wasn’t given one by any crew member, nor did they make any announcements giving the passengers and update. The other passengers on the plane were extremely rowdy and loud during the wait and the crew did nothing to keep ca"
Cons: "The seat area was dirty with broken biscuit crumbs - both seat and floor. The pocket in front of the seat (back of previous seat) was filthy with what looked like yogurt and chewing gum. Very unpleasant!"
Cons: "We had to wait for someone... Couldn't leave with out them. Departed an hour late."
Pros: "Good but not the delay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my coach from Barcelona to valencia and had to pay €34.50 for another ticket can you please try to refund me this money."
Pros: "The crew are so helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Our flight was ridiculously delayed due to fog no fault of the airline but the communication was terrible"
Pros: "Nice, simple. Friendly"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "30 minutes late - better than 2 hours with previous Vueling flight..."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats are like deck chairs with no leg room"
Pros: "When check-in online I was given 1st row seats, as a result I was treated as an excellence customer. Great service."
Cons: "Delayed flight that was a connection and nearly missed my next flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour which made me late for where i needed to be"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Barcelona"
Cons: "Extremely poor service by the cabin crew. They were extremely lethargic and slow with service. So much so that numerous rows of seats with young families were never served. No announcement or apology, they just stopped serving as they needed to prepare to land. They knew from the start how long they would have to serve drinks/snacks but didn’t care and definitely did not go out of their way to ensure everyone would be served. The worst service or total lack of that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "Flights notoriously late Staff useless Service inexistant No information provided Avoid Vueling"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane late Check in late What a joke first time flying with this joke company"
Pros: "Staff and smooth fligfht"
Cons: "Really long delay with hardly any information of when takeoff will be"
Pros: "we reached our destination alive"
Cons: "We sat on the aircraft on the tarmac for two hours, no explanation. Food and drink were served 20 mins before landing, some people didn’t get a chance to have a drink. Staff were disorganised confused and rude. My debit card was handed to another passenger because the steward had no idea what he was doing. Beyond awful!"
Pros: "Seats were clean"
Cons: "Delayed flight which lead to then sitting in the plane on the runway awaiting a time to take off. Flight attendant didn’t serve the back half of then plane with drinks. Luggage Carousel kept changing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed by almost 4 hours with no communication. By the time we found out we could get a meal voucher it was too late"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "Nothing.... Very poor. Generally Vueling has a poor image but I took a chance nothing has changed"
Cons: "On board the plane I was told you have to pay for all the food drinks quite abruptly maybe because I had shorts on and a tee shirt the lady in question thought I did not have much money.....Never go by how somebody is dressed that's my advice to your airline staff...."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "On arriving two hours early to my flight I was told that I was being put on standby because the flight was full. Not sure how I got bumped from a flight that I bought a ticket for 3 weeks ago? Upon waiting at the gate I came to realise that 17 other people had also been bumped. How does an airline overbook a flight that much? We were led to the baggage claim and told to pick up our bags to be rechecked- then the flight attendants disappeared, giving us no further direction as to where to go or what to do. My bags did not arrive on the carousel, either did anyone else’s that had been bumped. We walked up to the check in desk only to be told to consult the baggage service desk downstairs. Upon doing that we were told to go back to the check in desk. After going to the check in desk again we were told to go to the customer service desk. After doing that and waiting another half hour, we were given new tickets and told that our baggage had left on our original flight and would be waiting for us in Barcelona once we got there. Our compensation for all of this hassle was only a free meal from the restaurant. When we went to the restaurant we were told that we were only allowed one of the cold sandwiches and a small drink. Absolutely appalling as we were starving and exhausted. All of the flights were also delayed, however all the boards continued to say they were ‘on time’. The board for the flight we eventually took said we were ‘on time’ despite the fact we were still standing at the gate at the time we were supposed to depart. After arriving on a flight 5 hours later than we should have arrived, We were then told by the baggage desk that the luggage had not arrived in Barcelona and were instead back in Paris. So the staff in Paris blatantly lied just to get us to leave them alone. No apology was offered at any point of this whole ordeal, no compensation other than a sandwich and a bottle of water, and i’m now left with absolutely nothing but the clothes on my back. Not even a complimentary toothbrush which has been given to me along with toiletries and a t-shirt the last time my bags were delayed. Absolutely appalling from all aspects of this whole company. I am sorry to say I’ve already booked my return flight, however after that flight I am never flying Vuelig again!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and decent legroom in the cabin."
Cons: "Slight delay on departure but not really an issue. Bit of a long wait for baggage in Barcelona on arrival but don’t think it’s Vuelings fault."
Pros: "Safe flight, good leg room"
Cons: "Delayed departure, delayed boarding"
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Plane took off an hr later, not many vegetarian or vegan meals to choose from, my legs didn’t fit in my seating area..."
Pros: "cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "ground staff was so trained to brush problems to the customers that never again Vueling, so bad experience compared to Ryanair..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after checkin . Trying to get an alternative was futile with no success.Had to drive 1000 km in the end. No announcements made in English. Plese advise how to get a refund."
Cons: "Very little legroom"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Was made to put case into the hold at the gate, they said there wasn't enough room on the plane, got on, there was loads of space and loads of cases. Got to Barcelona and my Kipling monkey had been removed from case, either in Birmingham or Barcelona."
Pros: "The staff were nice, and we landed which is always a bonus"
Cons: "Almost missed the last aerobus because of the long delays. Long waits with boarding."
Pros: "Furious, Vueling is always late!!!"
Cons: "Always late,, they don't care!!"
Pros: "Staff were fine, lovely to check in online and not have to worry"
Cons: "Once onboard we sat for nearly an hour going nowhere"
Pros: "The Staff were very attentive and attractive!! Very Comfortable flight and well worth the money! I would only fly with Vueling to Barcelona! Amazing Experiance Thank you everyone"
Cons: "Outstanding"
Pros: "Excellent check in . Before time arrival."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "New plane, comfortable seat and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarking in Barcelona very disorganised"
Pros: "Comfort and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Everyone told to board at the same time but they no one being boarded for over 30 mins. So left just standing in a long line for ages. Why tell us to board before you’re ready to board anyone? And why all at the same time and not groups of rows?"
Pros: "Good flight on time so no complaints"
Pros: "I like very much weather of Barcelona which is ideal for me.people of spain very cooperative with excellent attitude."
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."
Cons: "My recline button on the seat was broken and I was sat on the back seat so wouldn’t disturb anybody behind me, the person in front reclined and rightly so for comfort leaving me very little room. Felt a little closed in."
Pros: "Friendly, pleasant and helpful staff on board"
Cons: "The delayed boarding of the flight due to the delayed arrival of our aircraft into Dublin. The 15 Minutes of silence and not knowing what was going on, or whether we were or weren’t going to eventually be landing in Barcelona or diverted elsewhere, after the aircraft had suddenly climbed very steeply away from Barcelona as we were almost about to land on the first approach to BCN."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive with the plane, we were not informed of the situation and waited for at least one hour before a passenger was told the luggage was left behind. The luggage did arrive after 90 minutes, still no explanation from the Vueling"
Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Nothing good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which meant I missed the event I was travelling for. No help from airline or any expression of sympathy for the situation, very awkward to deal with and no flexibility, no offer of refund or change of flight as no other was available with the airline, wouldn't book again"
Pros: "Was given the Exit seat"
Cons: "Had to leave my hand luggage at check in because of fully booked flight And had to take out my laptop and carry it throughout the flight without case"
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Cons: "Delay of 35-40 minutes again, as always."
Pros: "I didn't take the flight so there was nothing to like"
Cons: "I booked the flight at noon. The flight left at 12:30, so the check-in counter was already closed because it was an international flight. I wanted to make a booking for the 29th, not the 27th... bookings shouldn't be made after the counter has already been closed. British Airways said that they didn't charge my credit card but I just checked it and it was definitely charged."
Cons: "Very very small amount of legroom Flight was delayed c.90 minutes, there wasn't a lot of information and eventually were told they had to use a different plane, which may have explained it's quite poor old condition."
Cons: "You take money from my card and you send me confirmation when I go to the counter they said that I don't have any reservation I will complain about that you are the bad company ever"
Pros: "Good crew, Lovely flight"
Cons: "Slight delay but wasn't a big problem"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lazy steward talking and the toilet were he was standing next to had all water"
Pros: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."
Pros: "Airport security was efficient."
Cons: "Every group on plane seemed to have been purposely split up even though there were many empty seats. Difficult to book luggage on the website. They said there were strict size limits on cabin bags, but when we got to the gate they didn’t check any - we had to pay for an extra bag in hold when we could have just used a bigger bag for hand luggage. Everything was difficult. Bag drop didn’t work - we had to queue to to go to the desk 3 times and the lady eventually did it herself. Staff were polite and nice."
Cons: "Boarding in Manchester was a disaster. Scanned boarding passes, let everyone down the stairs to the apron, only for to be told to come all the way back up the strairs again because of a change of aircraft. Had to do the whole pre boarding and boarding process all over again. More interested in selling hot Panninis rather than check if we had a belt for our baby. Even after doing safety checks, they passed us and still didn’t have a belt for our baby. Only when we called them back And asked for a belt did we get one, and all this whilst the aircraft was moving. Waited over 25 minutes for our buggy bag to come out the baggage belt in Dublin."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly, courteous and professional."
Cons: "Literally everything from checking in to seat and baggage is unnecessarily monetized."
Pros: "Nothing late again dirty plane not allowed to bring alcohol on which is fair enough but they don’t mind selling you there own"
Cons: "Everything was rubbish"
Cons: "Kayak did not forward me bookin confirmation and I paid extra 60€ At Ryanair no customer service desk. Nearly missed flt. Never again w Ryanair"
Pros: "'ve Ry quick"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "Reasonably priced. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Seats are very cramped and uncomfortable. I’m 179cm and it’s a tight enough squeeze for in the seats."
Cons: "The heat, insane air con not working"
Pros: "In flight snacks were good. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Getting through security was a stressful nightmare. I had no idea what to put where. Was just given a tray and expected to know. Signs said inhalers needed to be in plastic bag but website said meds were ok but keep handy. Threatening notices said if you get it wrong your bag will be searched and you can be delayed for up to half an hour (the inference being you could miss your flight). Vowed not to fly again although may get over it!"
Pros: "We actually made it"
Cons: "The 3hr delay with no explanation or any information whilst waiting in the airport."
Pros: "On time and that’s about it"
Cons: "Hot, cramped, slow boarding and ridiculous wait times at the bag drop in. Almost missed our flight despite getting there 2.5 hours before boarding"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."
Cons: "We were charged an additional $70 per person to have our boarding passes printed at the airport. After waiting 40 minutes in line to check in, we were made to go to another office to get boarding passes. Even though we arrived 3 hours before the flight, we barely made it. Ryanair tries to put as many obstacles and charges in your way before you fly. You have no recourse as you would miss your flight if you don’t pay the extra charges. During the flight, the whole purpose of the crew is to sell duty free goods. This airline is the worst! I’d pay more to another airline, just to avoid Ryanair."
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "If they don’t speak good English and have heavy accents, why don’t they slow down the announcements, so people have at least a small chance to understand???"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We boarded on time but ended up 30 minutes late due to the staff running around like headless chickens, seemed very unorganised. Guy making announcements on the plane spoke so fast you couldn’t understand a word. Engine made a terrible buzzing noise for half the flight, so loud you had to shout to hear anyone."
Cons: "I paid for my seats and the ask me to change next to the emergency door, something that i would never choose."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding commenced after the given departure time with no sign of a delay on the departure boards. There was no clear guidance for queuing, so the speedy boarding we paid extra for was close to useless, staff then scanned boarding passes without a care for passports. Once on the plane the flight was delayed for 2 hours and only after 45 mins of sitting around waiting for an explanation were we given one by the captain."
Pros: "Nice and cheap."
Cons: "The window was in the wrong place so I got a bad neck trying to look out."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "The flight was significantly delayed because of a woman having a panic attack. Other people should not have to wait because one person is afraid of flying."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff, the crew none could english well enough for anyone to understand them"
Cons: "I didn’t know that I had to pay and extra £15 just to get a seat! I thought I already paid enough for my ticket ."
Pros: "0"
Cons: "Being delayed an lied too"
Cons: "We boarded after the time it was supposed to take off and once in Barcelona we had to wait about 25 minutes to collect our bags."
Cons: "Delayed a little"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Everything. I’d rather walk than use this company again"
Pros: "Managed to sleep most of the way so the journey went very quickly"
Pros: "Ryan air crew very good"
Cons: "No vegatarian food"
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "Front boarding stairs out of use - conjestion at rear boarding Extras for check-in return journey"
Pros: "We didn't crash and I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight was 90 mins late, we were herded like cattle onto the plane which was filthy with empty sweet wrappers littering the entirecabin, which in turn was full of crying children (whose parents appeared powerless/unwilling to comfort them). While none of this was helped by the poor weather creating epic turbulence and a near-miss with another aeroplane, I did take a flight the following day with EuroWings in identical weather which was far better controlled with less nausea-inducing turbulence so I do feel I can blame Ryanair for feeling quite sick as we left the plane. If we'd had to go in for a 3rd landing attempt, I'd probably have turned up for my meeting all covered in vomit as they don't even provide sick bags! Ryanair isn't just basic and cheap, they don't even do the basics properly. It's as though they're deliberately trying to make the experience as horrible as possible. Ryanair is dreadful. Never again!"
Cons: "leaving later than scheduled"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they where delayed and as a result they made me miss my flight.. to Barcelona i hate this airlines and will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Prompt take off and easy boarding.decent leg room"
Cons: "My husband was very disappointed with the coffee and the chocolate and cranberry cake. Prices very steep too.."
Pros: "60 quid return to Barcelona from London. Can't be bad. Comfortable seat and very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "They called boarding a long time before it actually started. Food available was not so good."
Pros: "Normal simple RyanAir flight, as long as one does not eat food or buy a glass of wine at £8each."
Cons: "Priority on-boarding was fine to start with, until the later passengers started bringing on too much hand luggage and long coats stuffed with clothes, and stuff. Cabin Staff just wanted to get away as fast as and gave up preventing these degenerate snowflake freeloaders from stuffing their bits and pieces in several storage cabins along the cabin. Of course these people went to all of the lockers in turn and rifled through them as their stuff was spread across several lockers. Luckily my bag, with it’s many padlocks, was completely locked down, and it survived an attempt to open it. My partner was not so lucky, however. Clearly the cabin staff are under pressure to get moving and keep the passengers happy. But it is obvious to m that these ‘later’ passengers are working a scam to steal from other passengers. RyanAir need to make these argumentative over packers, put their stuff in the hold, without question or get off. Off-boarding was also a joke, the priority boarders at the front of the plane that Paid the most, had to get on a bus to the terminal that was the last to move...so forcing a lengthy queue at passport control, it took over an hour to get into the terminal. As the less exoerienced traveller faffled about with their documents, multiple children, and no queueing system. It was chaos on the Spanish side. RyanAir would avoid the delays by having better trained assertive staff, and a little better administration on the ground to ensure that priority boarders get what they paid for. Otherwise I might as well fly SwissAir, or Lufthansa, which are only a 15% price point away. [after seat booking and other RyanAir add on costs.] Passenger===Disappointed [and literally was robbed in flight.]"
Pros: "great service, no turbulence"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Flight delay and .no air bridge"
Pros: "Everything about it was smooth and easy"
Pros: "The price of the ryanair flights are great, and will probably be the reason I continue to use them"
Cons: "I am not bothered that there was no in flight entertainment, or that everything cost extra, a lot extra, like drinks (2.5Euros for a can of cola). It’s what you’d expect from a trip that only cost £14.99 each way... But, the things that don’t cost anything, the things you’d expect from any big brand weren’t there at all. Zero communication from staff about why the fliight was delayed (until we landed at Frankfurt) Zero personality from the staff. They looked unhappy, or overworked, or bored... Lufthansa, British Airways, AA, etc... all happy staff. Staff weren’t even communicating verbally... they mimed a lot of stuff... The safety breif was disorganised and they had to repeat it as the pilot interrupted... and the pilots announcements were very unclear, due to a lack of pronunciation of the words he was saying. If I was to offer a suggestion as to how this could be fixed, Inwould suggest that it has something to do with poor recruiting, low staff morale, or something similar"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Not very comfortable seats"
Pros: "Delayed take off , arrived a head of time"
Cons: "Lack of information for delay"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The queuing for boarding and the speed for boarding was bad"
Cons: "= sardines and quite unpleasant"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no baggage tags to put cabin cases in hold and ‘random allocation’ seats actively place people as far away from each other as possible"
Pros: "The Gin and Tonic"
Cons: "3hr delay and the worst landing I have ever experienced, Stevie Wonder would have done better."
Pros: "The staff were friendly, the boarding crew clear and quick."
Cons: "Late take off, shouldn't happen for a regular short haul flight, meant I was too late arriving at my final destination"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "The landing very bumpy"
Cons: "Asked to put cabin bag in hold despite having no other hold luggage. Plenty of room for cabin bags right above my head. Even more delayed time"
Cons: "3 hour delay! Walked out of barcrlona airport ar 3am!"
Cons: "Needed more self service bag drop off terminals and better instructions on how to use them. Queue to drop off bags was ridiculous."
