Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."

Cons: "Beware: You go down 3 flights of stairs with your carry-ons, then up another flight of stairs to get on the jet (without weather cover). If you need the lift, you would need to ask in advance OR fight your way back through other boarders to ask for staff assistance. No seat pockets,"

My wife, for whom I had bought a ticket but was not present because of a heart attack, obviously did not have any luggage on board which should have compensated for my overweight bag. Boarding required you to haul your bag down several flights of stairs and than up a flight of stairs to get into the airplane. Not a pleasant experience."
