Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."

Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."

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."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."

Pros: "Everything OK"

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.....’"

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "kLM staff was great."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

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."

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: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."

Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"

Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."

Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

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"

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

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: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"

Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."

Pros: "My last answer should have mentioned that the airline I referred to was Loganair not British Airways. Coffee and a Tunnocks biscuit at no charge"

Pros: "Crew were great and we left and arrived slightly early which was nice"
Cons: "The in flight magazines and safety cards were ripped and damaged. Not a good look for the flag carrier"

Pros: "quick boardling, good flight, enough personal space in business class"
Cons: "I do wish passengers would sit until the seatbelt signs are off and not all jump up and open the over heard bins and drop things"

Pros: "Good legroom, comfortable seat and great entertainment to keep me occupied for the 10 plus hours."
Cons: "Security at Heathrow -slow!!!"

Pros: "they got me to LA"
Cons: "food and drink not served for 2 h ours / flight delayed 1hr 45 mins, no choice of meal it was a take it or leave it offer, ice lolly served 2 hours after food and horrid snack before landing - on a 10.5 hour flight not good enough, I will consider another airline next time I go. 3 trips a yr"

Cons: "Beyond their control. Flight delayed 50 mins"

Pros: "Boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Typical BA efficiency."
Cons: "What’s the difference between BA and EasyJet?"

Cons: "All goid"

Cons: "My mother needed assistance with the disable wheelchair and was given one but the staff that was meant to wheel her into the flight abandoned her and she almost missed her flight."

Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."

Cons: "Inept staff throughout at Heathrow. Sat on the plane for half an hour while they located someone ‘qualified to open the door’."

Cons: "We where delayed for just over an hour"

Cons: "Too hot, meant to arrive 5 mins early but ended up 15 mins late as we sat on the runway for about half an hour without air conditioning."

Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes"

Cons: "Flight delayed an hour from NICE and connection at Manchester was badly handled by BA and missed connection. With no refund or hotel or alternate flight offered. Total failure. Am now stuck. And very upset"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Arrived pm from manchester stayed in hotel at heathrow to fly out following day to Basel at 8am. BA would not check bag all way through. Seems they only do this at Gatwick. Poor service from Heathrow/BA"

Pros: "Good flight. Friendly crew members. We checked our carry on because the flight was full and the attendants said that they wouldn’t have room for all the bags. Checking the bags was very easy and we got to board the plane first."

Pros: "Very attentive, kind caring"

Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."

Pros: "The flight was on time. The wheelchair I had ordered was also on time and handled well. There was a wheelchair waiting for me when I got off the plane and someone helped with our luggage."
Cons: "I paid two pounds for a cup of tea that was not very hot. I couldn't use money and as my credit and debit cards were visa, the machine would not accept them. I think that giving your customers a.free drink would not break the company!"

Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Nothing, felt like I was back in the 80s"
Cons: "Old plane, had no port for usb cables, no tv on the back of each seat, no wifi. Flight from Philadelphia 5 days prior had it all."

Pros: "Pleasant efficient staff. Flight on time"

Pros: "Service was fine, the plane was full but it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the gate was not announced at the airport n London until 15 min before departure which was irritating. This flight was delayed and my checked in luggage did not make it to my destination. Hope to get it sometime tomorrow (a bit inconvenient but it happens)"

Cons: "The plane was all ready to go, but it had no fuel. We were delayed by 30+ minutes while they found someone to fuel it up, and then it took forever to take off. I almost missed my connection in Heathrow and my bad didn't make it!"

Pros: "No delays, good quality seating and service"
Cons: "The change to a packet of crisps or nuts instead of a snack."

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

Cons: "much more timely assistance following our missing this flight"

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

Pros: "Mature Cabin Manager, calm demeaner, professional with informative PA’s. Relaxed flight, on time, uneventful. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
Cons: "A hot breakfast"

Pros: "Crew bright polite and friendly. Professional"
Cons: "Not being easyjet. Terribly inefficient self check in for bag drop. Manchester airport appalling as usual. Not enough easiest staff to help with machines going wrong all time. Huge slow queues. Stupid idea for these machines. Slower than old system and you still need to pay staff."

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

Pros: "Was a easyJet flight"
Cons: "Could have been Singapore airlines"

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: "Good crew - efficient, polite and made the trip easy"
Cons: "The usual shennanigans being herded into a crappy space before boarding.."

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: "Straight forward flight"
Cons: "Economy flights are not known for the space"

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

Pros: "Very efficient. Staff helpful."

Pros: "Good price"
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: "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: "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: "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: "Had a great seat, 2f and middle seat was empty so had plenty of room to lounge about"
Cons: "All was good"

Cons: "Paid for handsfree but wa t allowed a lap top size bag despite phoning to check and being told it would be okay"

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

Pros: "Boarding, take off, landing & early arrival into Agadir"
Cons: "Anti social behaviour by a group of Asian lads"

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

Cons: "Delayed nearly two hours."

Pros: "Quick boarding, quick departure, quick landing. Polite flight crew and efficient service."
Cons: "no complimentary drinks, or small snacks. everything has a price. I'm used to airlines in the US where that kind of service comes with your ticket and the airline does not put a price on every little thing."

Cons: "Cost"

Pros: "Old aircraft and most uncomfortable poor seat and leg space"

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: "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?"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Long Queue at Stanstead but got through quickly. Boarding easy. Had a wine, chicken baguette and crisps - good. Good conversation with next passenger"

Cons: "the ground crew took way too long in loading the bags and thus we were delayed 40 minutes."

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: "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: "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: "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: "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."

Cons: "I was there 10 minutes from my flight because of a lot problems from airline doesnt matter and they supposed to take a flight at 15:30 my flight was delay but we arrived at 15:40 and i was thinking i lost but suddenly i saw that it was missing 10 people more and i was running like hell on it and at the gate they didnt let us to take a bus ... The funny was that the plane departure at 16:20 that was freaking out and Im never gona take that airline ! I always chose Norwegian but i was thinkkng that they have change little bit ° , in Norwegian one time they wait for me 20 minutes 20 minutes ! Ryanair is the most Bad and i feel sad if i m writing for them as well !"

Pros: "Comfortably seats and more reliability."
Cons: "It’s a classic ryanair flight. Need I say anymore!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."

Pros: "Efficient and cheap"
Cons: "Another passenger had exactly the same seat number as me which caused confusion and an uncomfortable situation"

Pros: "Nothing about the flight did I like"
Cons: "If I had flown with a better airline Ryanair are appalling"

Pros: "Decent enough flight, seats comfortable enough for short haul wouldn’t want to go long haul on the same seats, good selection of onboard snacks"
Cons: "Flight was half hour late, priority seats should be reserved for the first seats on the plane rather than scattered all over the plane, suitcases shouldnt be allowed on board they take up too much space for anyone else and slow down the boarding of the plane as people attempt to haul them up the stairs, some staff could be more polite and less abrupt and some could attempt to speak louder and clearer"

Pros: "Airport lounge"
Cons: "The obvious boredom of cabin crew due probably to poor wages and long hours."

Pros: "Really disappointed"

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: "A pleasant journey."
Cons: "It was fine. No complaints."

Pros: "A1"

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: "the departure was dine with about 1 hour delay"

Pros: "'ve Ry quick"
Cons: "40 mins late"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."

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: "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"

Pros: "Good coffee"
Cons: "Delayed by around 100 minutes. No soup no tea."

Cons: "No vegatarian food"

Pros: "Price of tickets!"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Needed more self service bag drop off terminals and better instructions on how to use them. Queue to drop off bags was ridiculous."

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Boarding was good. Left & arrived on time. Crew very efficient in spite of the problems encountered with passengers."
Cons: "The flight was not so much Ryanair as Liverpoolair. There were hen & possibly stag parties on board who had obviously had a lot to drink , were very noisy including when the safety procedures were being announced & the crew had to constantly deal with passengers who would not obey instructions."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything, firstly I checked in early as recommended to find that my wife and I were not sat together. It gave me the option to change one of our seats, stating that it would only increase in cost if we select a more expensive seat. It turns out there were more free seats than reserved but to sit next to my wife (without changing hers) it was going to cost £10, no idea why as they hadn't selected her a more expensive seat. Guess what.....the exact same happened when checking in on our return journey, can't wait to board the plane in a couple of days! When arriving at the airport it is clear Ryanair are removing staff to keep cost down with no care for passenger satisfaction, you check your bags in automatically which appears a scam for over weighing your cases and charging you without having to speak to you. It coat us £10 for being over a kilo, we didn't believe we were but paid it as we thought we had no choice because no staff were close by. A couple beside us were supposedly 3 kilos over and believed this to be incorrect, they kicked off enough of a fuss to be able to go check in face to face and not pay a single penny, doesn't quite seem fair? The final nail in the coffin was the fact that at 8.45 (our supposed departure time) we were stuck in a huge queue watching people get off the plane we were due to board. No delays or hold ups had been announced yet we should have been boarding at 8.15 and told to go to our gate as normal for this time. No plain in sight and when it arrives we can't go straight on as people are getting off it! All in all Ryanair have been awful so far and I am dreading our flight home!"

Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "Everything is boor"

Pros: "Travel with you again and again"
Cons: "I am satisfied"

Pros: "Row 1 seating"
Cons: "40 mins late"

Pros: "Some crew nice"
Cons: "Not enough room for carry on bags."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was very cheap"
Cons: "Arrived late"

Pros: "Plane was late and no reason given until we were sitting on the plane."

Pros: "Fast and efficient."
Cons: "Expensive poor coffee."
