Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"

Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."

Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"

Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "Crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seats are awfully tight and no padding The plane was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were on it because of some air conditioning issue"
Cons: "Not much. Outside influences not under their control"
Cons: "Everything is made easy...."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane everyone had hoods up and coats on."
Pros: "Seats and legroom very good for a budget airline. Crew very good."
Cons: "Boarding in Naples was dire"
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alanya airport puts you through security 3 times. If they want to do this at the gate including hand searching they need to employ more staff to speed up the process. Food and drink at the airport is expensive"
Cons: "People had to go a long way to find space to stow their bags. No one was telling people to put small bags under their seats."
Cons: "Food options are very bad & there are no TVs on the plane but otherwise this was an excellent flight & a seamless holiday transfer from the moment that we arrived."
Pros: "Nice plane and well trained crew, will fly them again, without any doubt"
Cons: "Missed the need to add luggage to both inward and outbound journey, that got excessively charged on the way back. Have never had to select luggage allowances both ways, clearly we want to bring our luggage back! + why should it cost twice as much to add to the hold when paying at the airport, rip of"
Pros: "Amazing customer service from the moment we arrived at the airport, throughout the checkin process and on the plane. Really extraordinarily amazing given that it was the Saturday of half-term. Cannot praise highly enough."
Cons: "I canot think of any single fault at all."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant and know how to smile"
Cons: "Air con started out super hot then went rather chilly!?"
Pros: "Great boarding decent legroom"
Cons: "Good all round - no entertainment but it’s short haul so expected"
Pros: "Comfortable, quick flight to prague, even landed early! The cabin crew were efficent and the cabin was kept clean and tidy. Legroom is always better on Jet2"
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Jet2 have good planes, excellent legroom and great staff."
Pros: "Cheap and easy."
Cons: "The announcements were a bit “organised tour” excitement which was odd. Also not allowed tablets during take off and landing which was a bit behind the ball compared to other carriers."
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly service on the plane."
Cons: "Connection issues from previous flight. Connecting ground staff didn't seem to have their game together. In all fairness, it was after midnight and I don't think it was connected to the Aegean airline. More like airport security."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "Late at the airport but they managed to get us all through and boarded on time"
Cons: "Too many steps especially at Birmingham"
Pros: "Crew was good, boarding was good. On time."
Cons: "All food/drinks are chargeable, but they will not accept credit cards without a raise number on the front so I couldn't use my travel credit card and then I couldn't use my debit card because they said "often the debit card will not run through while in the air"...fortunately I had some Euros."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived on time. Clean. Everything worked. Competent and friendly crew. Great price. Yes, we definitely would fly with Jet2 again."
Cons: "Really packed us in. Crew kept on offering items for sale. But, it is a deeep discount carrier so we were not surprised."
Pros: "Good flight (when we eventually got airborne. Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Last minute gate changes at Heraklion meant lots of confusion & frustration plus late departure. Edinburgh airport is a joke since its recent upgrades, plane sent to wrong bay caused delays getting off then baggage handlers are slow beyond useless, seem to think they are doing everyone a big favour & will do things when it suits them. No help or information from airport staff who promptly vanished at the 1st sign of trouble. Edinburgh airport really needs to have a long hard look at itself."
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Short flight good check in, comfortable seat. Nice staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were polite, better than on the outward flight from Paris CDG to Leeds, but seemed more interested in chatting to each other than to reassure passengers about the long delays. Once underway, the flight progressed well."
Cons: "When a 30 minute delay was announced (13.45 instead of 13.15), I was fairly philosophical. However, we didn't board until 13.45. Once settled in our seats, another 25 minutes went by when the plane did not move. No information's given. I asked a member of the cabin crew what was going on who said she didn't know anything. I then heard her ask (presumably the captain) on the intercom if he could make an announcement as 'passengers were enquiring' We were then informed that we would have a further delay of up to an hour. We eventually took off at 16.00, over two hours after scheduled time. Thank goodness, I had left plenty of time for my connecting train. I was equally unimpressed for different reasons with Jet2.com on the outward flight on 12 July. I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "The convenience of the route"
Cons: "The thumping 'music' as we boarded, the over-jolly announcements which treated the passengers as if they were all mentally deficient or poorly educated. The information they conveyed was clear and comprehensive and obviously, safety instructions are crucial, but the format and tone of delivery were so patronising I thought they were a parody. They also assumed everybody was coming back to the UK after their holiday - the flight had a good proportion of French passengers and some of us don't live in the UK. Make the announcements more neutral. I fly with a lot of no-frills lines, especially Ryanair and EasyJet as well as the larger carriers such as Air France, BA, SAS and Air Canada, but I have never come across such grating and irritating announcements. I will think twice before booking another flight with them rather than endure this again."
Pros: "I actually found the seat quite comfortable, compared with other low-cost airlines. I was glad that i could take my hand luggage onto the plane, allowing me to exit without having to wait at the carousel. There was plenty of space in the overhead locker. I liked the sense of humour in the announcements - it proves that even serious things can be said in a pleasant manner"
Pros: "Last minute booking from Alicante, amazing seat allocation and the flight arrived 35 minutes early."
Cons: "Shame Leeds wasn’t ready for us, took far too long to access the terminal and queue at passport control was a joke. Landed feeling great, now I’m ticked off."
Pros: "Another excellent flight on Jet2 , 35 minute delay but handled with such relaxed professionalism by the crew. Highley recommend *****"
Pros: "excellent legroom"
Cons: "Nothing. Superb flight."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Charge to ensure you keep your free hand luggage in the cabin. Security delays at Belfast."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively painless. Although as always we seemed to end up in the crèche part of the cabin."
Cons: "Having to switch off all electronics while the seatbelt sign is on believe bags in the last century. Even a kindle! This is just ridiculous."
Pros: "New plane. Great legroom. Generous luggage allowance. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "- Boarding was quick and effortless - Customer service was excellent from both ground staff and in flight team - No niggly baggage rules - Fair prices for in flight meals and snacks A huge thank you to Jet2 for providing an excellent service at fair prices"

Pros: "Everything, staff the whole package faultless, well done !!!"
Pros: "First time iv used jet2 and I will again"
Pros: "Great flight, super low price. Overall great value. Also the cabin staff were great. The flight was quite empty so we had a bit of a blether"
Cons: "Nothing was wrong with the flight, aircraft or service. Only one star for food cos I didn't order, and for entertainment as there was none. Wasn't expecting for £80"
Cons: "temperature too cold on return flight from Faro, especially having been in hot weather for 16 days"
Cons: "Delay due to incompetence at Venice airport"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly"
Cons: "The constant talking on the overhead trying to sell something (food, donations, duty free) and then the stewardess didn't make it to the back to hand over landing cards."
Pros: "- Flight was on time, yet they pad the timetable to make it difficult to be late. - Aircraft was relatively clean considering this was its 4th flight of the day, and the fact it's 29 years old. - More laid back then EZY and FR as they allow a reasonable turnaround time."
Cons: "- Seat assignments don't always make sense, we were split up even though there was an empty row behind us. - Shortly after takeoff passengers moved into the extra legroom seats without paying. - Constant attempt to sell things to you, scratch cards, overpriced drinks etc."
Pros: "On one of the busiest weekends for flying it was perfect..... the plane the staff and the flight"
Cons: "The food was expensive and not great"
Pros: "Great service and food and smooth all the wsy"
Cons: "BiokAggrevation beforehand trying to book guaranteed cabin baggage"
Pros: "Convenient flights. Friendly staff. Excellent price."
Cons: "Older aircraft means electronic devices can only be used while cruising. Long queue for bag drop due to many flights leaving at once."
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew and clean aircraft both ways."
Cons: "Poor entertainment and lack of holder on seat in front to hold magazines, phone, iPad etc."
Cons: "Our flight out was delayed by a couple of hours and the return flight was delayed at least an hour. It was clear skies, no tusre why. Also, after having paid to check our bag, the bag didn't arrive at our destination because it was removed from the plane, along with 26 others. We didn't get it back for 5 days, just in time for our holiday to be over."
Pros: "Staff and process"
Cons: "No entertainment, pre booking hot food"
Pros: "The crew were very nice overall but one flight attendant in particular was incredible. I didn’t get a name but he was friendly, welcoming, and kind."
Cons: "I sat in an emergency row with an empty seat to my left and really did not like how the passenger in the row behind me kept getting up and walking into my row to get his stuff from the bins."
Cons: "Late as always"
Pros: "Crew very good nice fligth too"
Pros: "Fairly new plane with clean/comfortable seats"
Cons: "Bus transportation to the plane was delayed. People were uncomfortable having to stand in the bus for so long. Then the flight was delayed for 15 minutes due to airport traffic. As the only business class passenger i would have expected to be offered a drink then or even a bottle of water at my seat"
Pros: "Very happy with the service and seat comfort. Thank you"
Pros: "Boarding efficiency although the ... see below. Loved the salmon wrap and cheese 'n' biscuits"
Cons: "flight was delayed at check in and on the tarmac - 40 minutes. No explanation for this"
Cons: "Real time information about departure and gate info for delayed flight would have been helpful"
Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new and well appointed."
Cons: "Service with a frown by half the staff. Took away headphones that I had stowed aside for a later time while taking a nap and gave it to another passenger - on a long haul business class flight. Poor service culture. Outbound flight was terrible. Six hour delay. No apologies. Rude telephone staff."
Cons: "Not cancelling it"
Cons: "It cold be better if there is no flight delay which put in cause all our plans!..."

Cons: "Seats do not recline on this plane."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable the free drinks and food and crew were friendly."
Cons: "Can't think of anything!"
Pros: "Nothing to like. Rude staff."
Cons: "I had to pay to check the first piece of luggage 85€ one way. I was not inform of that when I bough the ticket and I could have chosen a different airline If I had considered that expense. The first piece used to be free intercontinental flights but now it varies depending on the company. I find difficult to find this information when buying and it makes a great difference in the final price you pay. I found strange flight attendants having a very loud conversation in a very quiet flight where most of the people were sleeping."
Cons: "Switched planes both ways, changed my paid for seating. No notifications. Excess luggage charges. Would never recommend this airline."
Cons: "It was nice to get a snack but the quality was mediocre."

Pros: "The crew was very king"
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable because the backs were not adjustable"
Cons: "Could have had a vegetarian option for the sandwich."
Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for my only bag! Didn’t know it wasn’t in the coat of the ticket"
Cons: "No air conditioning. Lots of apps didn’t work on the entertainment device."
Cons: "Flight was late on way back. Also no food optipn for vegetarians"
Pros: "I got to Rio de Janeiro on time"
Cons: "cramped seats, minimal water offered by crew on 9.5 hour flight. I also found the extra charge to reserve a seat on this flight a serious affront to economic sensibility"
Cons: "Baggage fees were unacceptable. All but one of my group of 12 had to pay and we were not told why. It was not clear that this should have been done via the website prior to the flight and why is it significantly cheaper online? Very disappointing."
Cons: "Flight to LIS was delayed 2.5 hours, missed BCN flight. I was given a new flight, but boardng pass was canceled at gate. I'm stranded!"
Pros: "Good pilot and flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay caused my group of 12 to miss transfer to hotel so we are tired and hungry"
Pros: "The Magnum ice cream was a great touch."
Cons: "We thought that $35 per bag is a bit too much when other airlines are $25."
Cons: "Need to pay extra for everything...bags, seats.Very bad practice for entire industry. Should pay $50 extra per flight and mandate that all bags, except hand luggage be checked in."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and well organized."
Pros: "The flight was quick, boarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "Flight attendants can be a bit nicer."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable business class. Food was good. Entertainment system easy to use."
Cons: "They totally screwed up boarding. We waited for about 20-30 minutes in line because they had not worked out the boarding logistics properly. Seat design does not permit an independent adjustment of the foot rest. Crew seemed a little indifferent to our presence; very few smiles."
Pros: "The punctuality"
Cons: "The airplane was small for a 8-9 hours trip, the seat were super small, I'm not a big person and I was very uncomfortable in them, the crew wasn't very nice, the food was a mess the girl next to me was a vegan and they give her a cheese sandwich, entertainment didn't work well there were only 4 channels, comparing to AirEuropa very mediocre and awfull airplane, really I'm from Venezuela and even there the airplanes are better, not worthy the 600$ one way ticket I got."
Pros: "Staff couldn't have been more courteous."
Cons: "Little confusing at the gate but mainly due to poor PA system not the staff. Happens a lot at airports in my experience"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Excessive baggage fees on 2 connector flights TAP BUT TICKETS BOUGHT SEPARATE."
Cons: "childs crying, no sleep, but what can we do right?"
Pros: "Friendly service, with the exception of having to request a drink repeatedly (i finally gave up, got up and went to the back of the plane myself for water). Despite the tight connection times, made each flight and luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The seats on the transatlantic flight were small and cramped. Lucky to have had an open seat next to me on the return. No entertainment on Lisbon/ Milan flights."
Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."

Pros: "Good organized, friendly staff"
Cons: "I had food poisoning from the ricota pasta I ate in the plane."
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: "Crew was just ok nothing more nothing less.. The general service of easy jet its better for me not operate..."
Cons: "Just to behave to people like human beings... I wont never choose this particular airline to travel..it was my last one.."
Pros: "Flight was pretty smooth"
Cons: "Seats allocated"
Cons: "much more timely assistance following our missing this flight"
Pros: "Very little to like flying like this"

Cons: "A hot breakfast"
Pros: "Crew bright polite and friendly. Professional"

Pros: "Boarding flowed well. Good flight, helpful staff."
Cons: "Left a little late but made good time. A positive experience."
Cons: "They overbooked our flight, sold our tickets and we didn’t get on standby. We had to wait in the airport for 8 hours for another flight because of this."

Cons: "But the worse thing is easyjet wants £90 per person tho send us on next flight even though the next flight was empty. So we booked the evening flight which was cheaper than 90 quid per person. It is just another trick to earn mor"
Pros: "The journey was made easy & stressfree with all our info on the easyJet app. Staff were very friendly on both flights. Paid for the extra leg room & that made all the difference."
Pros: "Very fast turnaround, prompt boarding and disembarking."
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: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding, take off, landing & early arrival into Agadir"
Cons: "Anti social behaviour by a group of Asian lads"
Pros: "Quick and comfortable"
Cons: "Toilets on the aircraft could be cleaner"
Pros: "Old aircraft and most uncomfortable poor seat and leg space"
Cons: "Would like to be able to take two bags on the plane."
Pros: "Nothing, misleading customers with 08.00 flights confirmed as 20.00 is unfair and most sledding to customers. I had to cancel within five seconds of receiving misleading confirmation. We had a cruise to catch at 1.00pm so could not take the late flight"
Cons: "See comnrnt above"
Cons: "The plane departed over an hour late and the service was poor. Easyjet is an ironic name as it was anything but easy."
Pros: "I arrived"
Cons: "I arrived late, uncomfortably, expensive for what is given."
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: "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: "Pilot telling very clear about flight , timing,"
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: "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: "Not a whole lot to be honest. Was an okay flight, attendants were good though"
Cons: "The useless bus at ZRH to take us to the terminal because easyJet couldn't be bothered to pay to go direct to the terminal. #speedyboarding"
Pros: "Take off to landing everything was good"
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."
Cons: "It was delayed 5 hours. Landed at 3am."
Cons: "2 hours delayed"
Pros: "Clean cabin."
Cons: "I always seem to sit next to an obese passenger who simply cannot fit in one seat (so they spill into mine)."
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: "The flight was smooth and onboard refreshments ok. Staffs were polite so on the scheme of things it was a good flight."
Pros: "time of booking and checking in"
Pros: "Crew were nice, and boarding was quick."
Cons: "No entertainment. Food and drinks for purchase only. Uncomfortably firm seats."
Pros: "Everything but the constant delays of these flights on Sunday evening . Last Sunday had the same problem and the invoked cause was traffic are barcelona airport."
Cons: "Recurrent delay"
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: "Cheap & on time"
Cons: "Utterly no frills. Seats are neither comfortable nor recline."
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"
Cons: "Last row on the A320 and doesn't have a window so makes it feels very cramped and uninviting."
