Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The space in the seats are very small for such a long trip"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Check in counter service is the worst I’ve ever experienced. On board, not all menus were available so I ended up eating the leftovers..."
Cons: "It was frustrating to have to pay to check only one bag for a long international flight. Fortunately, I had two seats to myself, so it made it easier to be comfortable during the long flight. Food was mediocre, but good enough. Would have preferred more vegetables or fruit than sweets."
Pros: "The crew was good. Seat is ok, not very comfortable."
Cons: "Too many people and little space to move"
Pros: "We arrived on time!"
Cons: "Checking in and dropping off luggage was a nightmare... There was no one at the check in desks indicated on the screens or the check in terminals. Eventually I found a desk at a different location that would take my bag. Boarding was chaotic, no lines, just a crowd blocking access. Even passengers with small children couldn't get through. Space between seats was minimal. Crew was ordering passengers to take headphones off during security demo. I understand it is important to be attentive, but ultimately you shouldn't be forced to."
Pros: "Iberia airlines is a disaster"
Pros: "Iberia offered the worst ever flight of my life"
Cons: "I was charged $55.00 to book early and choose seats. I agreed because I wanted to be sure to sit with my husband and have a view. Iberia changed my seats without my knowledge, and denied charging me extra. I have papers to prove my claim and will dispute the charges with my credit card company. Directions to our connecting flight in the airport by Iberia staff was confusing and they were extremely rude. We asked 3 different times! We were in danger of missing our connecting flight. Iberia is the worst airlines I have ever experienced, and I will never purchase a flight on Iberia again! Lesson learned!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled because of the error of the travel agency to book enough time for me to connect to my flight so I was stranded in Manchester."
Pros: "Two hour flight, with nice crew. Entertainment on board with a good selection is based on wifi and your ownd device. On time"
Cons: "Food is not free. If you want some, pay for it (what nowadays is normal). Leg space was tight for me"
Pros: "Iberias actual flights are always excellent from the crew, entertainment, food, and all the way up to the pilots smooth landings."
Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"
Cons: "No free food or drink was offered."
Pros: "The seat, the screen, the plane. Premium Economy in Iberia is totally worth."
Cons: "The power source wasn't working, Premium Economy pax can't go to the Business class restroom, although is just next to their area and have to cross half of the plane for the 1st Economy class restroom."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t unfriendly , no food was provided"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Lack of water, food, attentiiveness, leg room, wife's lost luggage"
Pros: "The flight was a smooth one."
Cons: "One flight attendant was quite rude."
Pros: "EVERYTHING AS PROMISED . ALL WENT THROUGH IN A SMOOTH AND TIMELY WAY"
Cons: "TRAVELING IN COACH ON A LONG HAUL FLIGHT IS A NECESSARY EVIL"
Pros: "This was a good flight with good service and a nice crew. It was especially nice to have actual silverware to use for the meal."
Cons: "Changing terminals in New Yory was challenging because the route was not clearly marked. They did not honor the on-line boarding passes, so I had to go to the counter to reprint the boarding passes and then go through security again. I also would have preferred a clean blanket once I got on board. The flight attendants seemed hesitant to speak to me in Spanish, which I speak pretty well and they also seemd uncomfortable talking to me in English, which is my native tongue. This made it hard to interact with them in my normal good natured way."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Nice choice of movies, and boarding was easy."
Cons: "The space in the cabin left something to be desired compared to most transcontinental flights I've been on. Atmosphere was stuffy and hot."
Cons: "didnt get support for connecting flight. Flight was delayed in run way making us miss the connecting flight."
Pros: "Dinner was good. Sandwiches and breakfast are just bread"
Cons: "Crew could pretend to be nicer"
Pros: "Check in personnel were able to place me in the 3rd row where the seat pitch was poor but not as bad as the rows farther back. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "This was return part of my journey. The LHR to MAD leg of my journey was extremely painful. I was unable to pay online or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time online or on the phone. Even in the 3rd row it was difficult to fit my thigh length in the seat pitch. I had to sit with my legs splayed and with one leg in the aisle. My leg was constantly hit by luggage, pax, and cabin crew. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. With the short seat pitch emergency evacuation would be very difficult for me and the other pax. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years."
Cons: "I didn't have any video for over two hours. I had to speak to 4 different crew members to get them to reset my monitor. They were not very friendly."
Pros: "The dinner that was served wasn't terrible"
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane. The movie choices were mediocre. Could have used a little bit more leg room."
Pros: "It was short."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was great also. As the plane wasn't full, I was able to move my seat and have two seats which was lovely. Thank you"
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane. I had a jacket on and socks and used two of the blankets and was still cold. I also had tried to contact Iberia to order a special meal, but was not able to get through on the line even though I tried for several days. I also was not able to figure out how to order a meal on-line. I was disappointed with the choices of movies."
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "Reasonable leg room for a a 6 foot tall passenger"
Cons: "Old planes, pilot didn't communicate at times when he would mess around with engine speed and then increase altitude suddenly. Some passengers were truly scared."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly"
Pros: "The films are a bit old but ok."
Cons: "Delayed flight, attendants rude, boarding not organized, the plane has too many rows, only pasta left for the last 10 rows. The touch screen in the seat is not quite nice for the one that is sit on it, looks like you have a bird hitting your head."
Pros: "Missed flight as scheduled changed forward by half an hour and re-organising another flight was difficult. Had to fly from another airport in Spain and transfer was without assistance. Staff did a good job at sorting a solution. The return home on BA was excellent and very efficient."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Pretty hassle free. Our flight wasn't completely full which helped. International flight so food was served as well as complimentary wine and beer. Would fly with them again."
Pros: "The price,. The plane. The food and the intertanment"
Cons: "Could be perfect if the service in the flight was better"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Business class service, there were no pre flight drinks served. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew, Iberia has the most beautiful bears on board! So handsome guys on beard!!!!!!!"
Cons: "While making the reservation online it said that you could declare your luggage when you do online check in 24 hours before your flight and the charge would be 15 euro's per bag or if you wait and do it at the airport it would be 30 euros per bag. I tried numerous times to do the check in before our flight and it kept saying unable to complete. I explained this to the agent at the airport and he still charge us 30 euros per bag."
Pros: "These were actually American Airline Flights 90 and 89. I really had a very good experience with American and though they tend to be more expensive they seem to be worth it in terms of comfort and amenities. I am willing to spend the extra money on Anerican if they continue to provide better than average service."
Cons: "I was wondering why I paid Iberia for an American Airline ticket. I wondered if this was some way to avoid paying taxes by funneling an US registered corporation fees through a Spanish registered corporation. It didn't make sense to me. I'm not a huge fan of legal games to avoid responsibilities. Still, very good flights."
Pros: "The seating in business class was excellent and comfortable."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and personal touch screen were great. The captain seemed to do well with abating most turbulence."
Cons: "The cabin crew weren't all that friendly and were super stingy about giving out water during the flight. The legroom was very limited compared to my last trans-Atlantic flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Misplaced luggage. Long lines. Poor staffing. Had to give up food vouchers for delayed flight given long lines just to pick up vouchers. Long lines due to poor staffing."
Cons: "When I got on the plane there was urine on my seat and no one told me before I sat down. DISGUSTING"
Cons: "had a booked flight from madrid to gatwick, london and connection the next day at 11 am to Tampa US. We were at the airport at 1500. Flight was supposed to board at 1820 and leave at 1850. When checking the board, the flight's boarding was anticipated to 1810. We were at the gate at 1815 and there was an electronic sign signaling "boarding". However there was no personal, no line of waiting passengers and no plane. Upon checking we were told that the plane had already left. (this was at 1828). The only way to make our connection in london was a flight to Heathrow later with BA. Then we had to get a taxi to get to gatwick. Will never fly Iberia again."
Cons: "At the airport (Madrid) too long to get to the Gate. Line for baggage, security and passport. It took more than two hours to get to the gate. Personnel too slow and passport check in moody day."
Pros: "Service was good... Overall it was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats didnt have individual a/c and it was kinda hot... Also the ligjts were not individual"
Cons: "Baggage lost."
Cons: "They change flight times without notifying us. They made us spent a night in a hotel and BUY new tickets for the following day. Were unable to find a person to even file a complaint. Please feel free to contact us if willing to help us!!!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Iberia is top notch. Nothing not to like."
Pros: "From the moment we checked in at Barcelona airport the airport staff were brilliant, my partner and his daughter are on the autism spectrum and struggle with crowds and social behaviour, but the gentleman that escorted us and helped us board could not have been nicer thank you"
Cons: "The staff were great but there was a rather large rid group that could have triggered an episode, but after a quiet word with the crew we were again supported a quick exit"
Cons: "Delays meaning I missed my train in Gatwick and wont be home before 1am. Crew was not exactly nice either"

Pros: "Arrived on time."
Pros: "Fly leaves on time"
Cons: "Seat too small and did not move, no entertainment and no food"
Pros: "Easy boarding and quick to receive baggage in Gatwick"
Cons: "Late opening of check-in. 2 desks allocated so 2 long queues. 20 mins into check-in the queue I was in changed to priority boarding. This necessary information should have been indicated in advance as 90% of the passengers were in the wrong queue. As for aircrew 1 of the female crew was miserable as sin and unhelpful to most passengers"
Cons: "Why make you board the plane and then tell you there is a 45 minute delay"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. I felt valued as a passenger. EasyJet seem to try to improve their process continually."
Cons: "Nearly every EasyJet flight I take is delayed. I know this can be beyond their control but I think scheduling is a bit tight. That said they keep you updated often and delay times go down as well as up."
Cons: "Dealing with being overweight Seating was a bit tight"
Pros: "I arrived"
Cons: "I arrived late, uncomfortably, expensive for what is given."
Cons: "Long wait time for luggage to appear on carousel"
Cons: "Late and the crew wasn't helpful"
Cons: "Being late on both journeys! With no explanation"
Pros: "I have been a fan of Easyjet for years but my last four experiences with them have been poor to say the least. A return flight to Naples earlier in the year and now Palermo shows that their attitude to customer care is slipping badly. All four flights were delayed to a greater or lesser degree. That happens and is usually beyond the control of the airline. What is not beyond their control is the way that they communicate during the delay and the way they treat their passengers. We are people not self-loading freight. Easyjet is fast becoming as bad as British Airways and they are by far the worst. A very frustrating and sad thing to see. The beginning of the end for Easyjet?"
Cons: "Abysmal communications. A don't care attitude. Not my problem syndrome. Treating passengers like cattle."
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 ."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "It was delayed like the previous flight with easyJet to the holiday destination"
Cons: "Return flight on Friday night cancelled, no reason given. Next alternative offered Monday afternoon, still awaiting compensation."
Cons: "Began 'boarding' the plane despite the fact people had not got of plane that had arrived from London. We waiting in corridor thing that leads to plane for over 20 minutes"
Pros: "Was meant to be a 21.40 flight that was delayed until midnight"
Cons: "Arrived at gatwick after public transport closed with no assistance offered"
Pros: "Pilot's way of explaining delays & diverted route"
Cons: "FRANTIC at Marseille Airport Easyjet security check area Then after unexplained delays, at gate entrance my hand luggage was refused even though it was organised the same way as my outward journey and that was OK. Aggressive checker said it couldn't have been Easyjet - I don't lie, and my outward journey was Easyjet. Had to repack & so spoilt some contents. We were left standing in gate area for ages without explanation."
Pros: "Not really anything since your system caused me to miss my connection at Gatwick, despite having ample time of 2+ hours."
Cons: "Didn't like having to put up a family of four overnight in 2 London hotel rooms and being charged Norwegian transfer fees of about $1000. #AboutToGoViralOnNorwegianUnlessThoseFeesWaived. Call me. John 949.439.7256"
Pros: "The welcome, the staff, everything was FAR better than my last flights with easyJet."

Cons: "Stupidly long wait"
Cons: "Fairly cramped seats, constantly trying to sell me stuff at ridiculous prices"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Overpriced water £1.80 for small bottle rounded up to €2.50 - double ripoff"
Pros: "New laptop ban was notified by email and text, so all ready when I arrived at airport. This is a lowish cost airline and crew were good, but does offer really good value and worth paying a bit more than some of the cheapest out there. Not too much different to BA, but friendlier and better value. Flight was a bit late leaving, but arrived pretty much on time. Food is also pretty good value, high street cafe prices, although the ham and cheese toastie is not recommended. But everything else was fine."
Cons: "Laptop ban is a pain, but not Easyjet's fault."
Pros: "The flight was very late over an hour late and as a results I have to take taxi from schipol airport to Amersfoort which cost me a lot"
Pros: "Crew pleasant and professional. Explained the headwind would add time"
Cons: "No gate number posted at airport just told the flight was boarding!"
Pros: "No issues on outward flight, flight arrived early"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed for an hour and passengers were not informed why there was a delay until the captain mentioned it."

Cons: "Time taken to board"
Cons: "Approx 35 min delay on departure from London. Long waite time on getting off the plane."
Cons: "Was told I needed to check my bag when there was plenty of overhead space once we boarded the plane. The entire zone system seems to be fake, as they boarded zone 1 and then went to all zones, skipping 2 & 3."
Cons: "Kiwi booked only 15kg bags instead of the paid 20kg bag on my booking confirmation. We had to pay an extra 90 Euro. It ruined our morning."
Pros: "Seats comfy plenty of room"
Cons: "The delay which was no fault of Vueling"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with very little information given by the crew. There was a 15 min delay getting off due to there being no airbridge and no information from the crew. There was very little legroom. The seat in front was broken and kept collapsing on my legs"
Pros: "Vueling is a horrendous company, delayed flights - very bad organisation"
Pros: "Friendly check in agent"
Cons: "For the check in agent to advise passengers that E gates are extremely far for a regional flight & to make our way directly there. I was traveling with my mother, we arrived 2 and half hours before our flight and plus did online check in but the walk to the gate took us about 40 mins that we missed"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, crew good, left and arrived as scheduled."
Cons: "Cost of on-board food & drinks"
Cons: "Leg room. Better maintenance of plane. Timekeeping."
Cons: "Boarding groups (divided in groups 1, 2 and 3) unclear"
Cons: "Chaotic under staff and poorly organized. Forced to rush and nearly miss flight despite being at airport well in advt"
Pros: "The plane was newish, with comfy seats"
Cons: "The crew spend to much time on trying to order / heat / distribute food. The distribution of the staff seems odd - the one taking all the orders, putting stuff into the microwave and collecting it, collecting the money, whilst the other just seems to steer the trolley"
Cons: "The flight was 1/2 late and hence arriving"
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!"
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and replacement flight delayed, no offer of food or compensations"
Pros: "The airline was terrific, despite being delayed we really did board and arrive at our destination in quite good time. The Italian stewardesses were absolutely charming and offered their services extensively."
Cons: "Loved that me and my travel conpanion go to sit beside one another, and somehow we’re at the very front of the plane together in seats 1B & 1C Prime location. Overall had a very pleasant experience with Vueling 10/10 would fly with again."
Pros: "Straightforward flight. I feel like I would fly with vueling again but from a different airport."
Cons: "It was delayed by 30/40 minutes and the price was quite expensive (but that was probably my fault)"
Pros: "Everything except luggage handling."
Cons: "New luggage came off plane in pieces."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "If your in rows 38-40 you will not get any drink or food as it takes so long for the drink trolly to reach you before landing"
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 again to depart, and over 30 minutes to show reclaim belt to get the luggage"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour which made me late for where i needed to be"
Cons: "They told us we didn’t have seats and that we’d have to go on standby. All staff were giggling and not very helpful. In the end we managed to get on the flight which seemed to have at least 4 extra empty seats. Poor customer services and communication to us of whether we would get the flight or not and what to do if not."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight due to an earlier plane being cancelled. My boarding pass was issued with no seat number which meant I had to wait with a large group of other people until everyone that had been allocated a seat number boarded. There was no communication from their staff and departure was delayed well over two hours. Things didn’t get much better on board as the crew left it so late to start the food service only passenger upto row 24 got the chance to buy a drink or food before they had to stop serving and prepare for landing. Add all this to the saga that was the outband flight and you’ll understand why the whole plane burst into laughter when the crew announced “welcome to Gatwick, apolagies for the delay, and we look forward to flying with you again”. Shocking service! Never again!"
Pros: "It arrived at its destination in one piece and not on fire"
Cons: "Tiny seats, plastic seats, late as usual."
Cons: "The boarding time has been changing every few minutes since the morning. I arrived in the gate where there were about 30 people with boarding passes but no assigned seats all overbooked. Half the people left on a bus then boarding stopped and we're returned back to the terminal going through security and hour or so later. The company reps had a big attitude problem and could provide no explanation to what and why anything is happening. In the end they tell us to leave the gate after 1.5 hours wait and look for new boarding info around 2pm. I managed to get on the flight by chance: no updated info was announced - I by chance heard a poor fellow working for the airline trying to find people at a nearby cafe who were supposed to be on that flight. If I had my headphones on I doubt I would be able to board that plane"
Cons: "unorganised deaprture @ barcelona airport where everyone was allowed to board at the same time. Also our flight way delayed but Vueling did not text anyone on our flight to inform us."
Cons: "Sitting at the back of the plane meant that we were the last to be served any food and only had about 20 mins to eat anything that was left over prior to landing. They ran out of most hot food"
Pros: "crew excellent and after much discussion they performed miracles"
Cons: "wife is disabled,told she had aisle seat,staff on board had to shift her 3 times,we were booked in together but sat apart on both trips,full marks to the cabin crew who really did a great job of moving people around but we had no help from last minute.com and less from the airline when we phoned in regard to my wifes mobility scooter.sorry its back to Easy jet."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but that was not Vueling’s fault. Despite the delay the staff did all they could to notify passengers and leave as soon as possible."
Cons: "Our hand luggage had to go into the hull so we had a long wait at the other end. Cabin crew explained 220 people and space for 180 bags, wouldn’t mind as much but I follow the rules and only bring one bag when people in front of me have 2 bags! Too ch down was very bumpy!"
Pros: "I've lost my job! The flight first thing in the morning should respect that we rely on them to get on time in the morning. One in 3 flights of Vueling are delayed! Ryanair is far better in this point! Today I really hate Vueling"
Cons: "I also lost the train tickets! I had to pay twice for everything. An apology is not enough, it sounds like they are laughing on us!"
Pros: "Cheap, clean, great on board crew. I arrived early for my flight and was able to change my flight to an earlier one cheaply, quickly and hassle free. Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Shocking check in. Only 2 desks open queued for 45 mins just to check in. Despite arriving in plenty of time. This was a Saturday lunchtime and the queue quickly built up and despite several members of staff being around no further desks were opened up until the queue became huge."
Pros: "Some of her crew members were nice"
Cons: "Some other crew member were not nice. Also not allowing online check in when travelling with babies makes life difficult as we have to queue in a long queue with a bored baby"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "On time, easy check-in and smooth boarding"
Cons: "Seating has limited leg room if you are tall. Seats also quite hard, but bearable over short distances."
Cons: "Late a full hour leaving Florence, so late into London."
Pros: "On time. The price."
Cons: "All as expected."
Pros: "We boarded and left on time, there was room for my luggage in the overhead. This is a budget airline so I wasn't expecting any thrills and thats exactly what I got - a functional, almost comfortable experience."
Cons: "You can't help but stress slightly not knowing if you're going to find a spot in the overhead."
Pros: "Nothing. Was too uncomfortable."
Cons: "I couldn't fit my legs in the space between seats, so much so that I had pins and needles in my feet by the time we landed. The food is really expensive. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "clean aircraft"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "The personnel was pretty nice and we arrived on time."
Cons: "I have never been on a plane that crowded, there is not an inch to breath..."
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."

Pros: "Flight was fine. I chose a good book."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Luggage drop and boarding pass took 45 min.- too long"
Cons: "Delayed over two hours both ways. Crew didn't make it down the aisle with the trolley for refreshments. Didn't have food vouchers and would not give me more than a a small glass of water even though we were stuck on a plane for over 5 hours."
Pros: "An employee walked down the line, scanned tickets=fast process. The lines were designated by row seating."
Cons: "I'm 5'9" & knees hit the chair in front. No complimentary water or coffee. EVERYTHING was a charge. Broken armrests & other materials."
Cons: "The flight was unable to take off on time, which they did not communicate until after boarding. All of the passengers had to sit on the plane on the tarmac and wait an hour until we were able to take off."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less than 20cm from edge of seat and back of seat in front. Late."
Cons: "CONVOLUTED BOARDING PROCESS"
Cons: "Very narrow seats, in fact the most narrow I've ever been on. Plane was delayed both ways. No real explanation as to why."
Cons: "First of all we were delayed an hour with no explanation or apology, the service was poor at best, and after all the trouble they managed to lose my bag as well . Two thumbs DOWN"
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: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."
Pros: "Seat was all sticky and I had to clean it"
Pros: "Airport lounge"
Cons: "The obvious boredom of cabin crew due probably to poor wages and long hours."
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."
Cons: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"
Pros: "A pleasant journey."
Cons: "It was fine. No complaints."
Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."
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"
Pros: "'ve Ry quick"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "This flight issues were so plentiful they provided me with knowledge on how not to run an airline."
Cons: "5 X delays, Incompetent pilot, No organisation of ground crew 2.5hr late"
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!"
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."
Cons: "The staff, the crew none could english well enough for anyone to understand them"
Pros: "Ryan air crew very good"
Cons: "No vegatarian food"
Pros: "Friendlly cabin crew. Clean environment."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
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"
Cons: "The landing very bumpy"
Cons: "Anxiety over the luggage."
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."
Cons: "Sitting 10 rows from my wife"
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."
Cons: "Delayed flight without being told before boarding at Paris BVA"
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: "Travel with you again and again"
Cons: "I am satisfied"
Pros: "Row 1 seating"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "Some crew nice"
Cons: "Not enough room for carry on bags."
Pros: "Was cheap"
Cons: "Was very late"
Cons: "The customer service agent was horribly rude. When asked her name, because she wasn't wearing a name tag, she said "Oh, you'd like my name? I'll be sure to write it down for you." I never ended up getting her name, but the way she treated me and my fiancé - as two customers that were very much over paying - was inappropriate and unprofessional. Never again will I fly RyanAir."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable It was late"
Pros: "It was very cheap"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Pros: "The price was fantastic! the best around :)"
Cons: "There was no notification from cabin crew to advise us to ensure we collect our luggage BEFORE we go through the glass doors at Gatwick. We were expecting to show our passport and collect our luggage from the carrousel but didn't realise until after we went through the glass doors and had to wait over 40 mins for it to be brought to us. What was so astonishing- we were told we weren't the only ones this happened to. It would be very useful if cabin crew made the passengers aware of this to avoid it happening time after time with others/flights"
Pros: "Plane was late and no reason given until we were sitting on the plane."
Pros: "Fast and efficient."
Cons: "Expensive poor coffee."
Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"
Pros: "Price - boarding was good, especially considering plane was full."
Cons: "Punctuality - about 40 mins late both ways - I kinda factor that in now!!"
Pros: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."
Cons: "It was way to small, no room. Rough take off and landing"
Cons: "Website hard to use"
Pros: "Flight was problem free. A few delays when boarding but hardly any time delay overall. Seats were comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly. Time from start to finish was unbelievably quick."
Cons: "Not applicable as everything was fine and problem free."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Most of it"
Cons: "Checked our party (two adults and three kids with backpacks) of 5's hand luggage, letting most other single travelers get onboard with hand luggage. What is the point, if you choose not to travel with checked bags and at the gate they still check hand luggage?"
Cons: "The queue for bag drop was absolute CHAOS. On the ground this is the worst airline on the planet. Granted not so bad in the air, but no opportunity is lost to remind you how no frills Ryanair really is..."
