Pros: "The crew were outstanding - providing an excellent service, above and beyond what I expected. The First Office provided 5 updates during the 2.5 hour flight which were colourful and informative (ie not just blah blah announcements but a valued and interesting announcements) and the Cabin Service Manager was personalable and friendly. At the end of her flight she publicly thanked her staff for a good days work which I thought was very nice of her to acknowledge her staff like that. All round - a great flight made very easy with brilliant staff."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be better - it was 110% perfect already"

Cons: "There was nothing that could be better - it was 110% perfect already"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "easy"
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: "Helpful staff, very pleasant flight and even arrived early!"
Cons: "The fact that you had to buy even water."
Pros: "Entertainment system and staff were kind"
Cons: "Food really wasn’t good on this leg for either evening meal or snack first thing."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the schedule"
Cons: "Not even a free bottle od water included in price of the flight anymore."
Pros: "Was delayed by 45 mins but managed to turn plans round quickly and get back faster than planned"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothinh"
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: "Despite all the “delays” it actually arrived on time."
Cons: "First it was on time (this morning t-12 hrs) Then it was delayed (delayed incoming flight) Then the plane changed and was on time Then something weird happend, departure was on time, arrival was delayed by 2 hours. Of course, officially there was no delay as departure was still on schedule - but “departure” just means everyone is boarded and plane door is shut, you could still be sitting on an empty stand on the tarmac for two+ hours. Complaints ensued. Captain rerouted plane. Back on time. Arriving at LGW is ridiculous - only 3!!!! THREE! Border nazis manning passport desk for entire south terminal, there must have been at least 700 people queueing. So that delay of 1 hour plus still occurred just within the airport. #ThisIsBrexitBritain #BrokenBritain #PeopleJustDoNothing #NothingWorks #AlexCruzIsACunt"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "The complete lack of help from BA staff after I missed my flight. No helpful suggestions at all when I asked for guidance. Just 'the flight is closed and there are no more seats left today'."
Cons: "They kicked me off the flight and I missed my husbands performance"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."
Pros: "Nothing. Delayed. Waiting around a lot. No satisfactory explanation."
Cons: "Delays. Poor communication. Disappointment that you can now count on BA to be worse than just about all other airlines."
Pros: "My first domestic flight with BA for years yet the service imo has got even slicker and better. From check-in to boarding to disembarking and all ahead of schedule, I doubt if I would fly domestically with anyone else."
Cons: "Crews hair all seemed to be scruffy with bits hanging in their face. Most unlike BA. Only thing I can think of all rest was faultless"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "It got me to where needed to get to. First flight in 12 months that wasn’t delayed."
Cons: "Poor value for money. The food & drink selection (that you have to pay for) is abysmal. UK Border is a joke, 20+ passport desks but only 2 are ever occupied, ePassport gate DOESNT work (won’t eork if you have kids). Zero f**ks given. #BrexitBritain #BrokenBritain"
Pros: "Crew and drink selection"
Cons: "3/4 of a sandwich for afternoon tea beyond a joke Barcelona lounge not great"
Pros: "The space"
Cons: "Messy boarding"
Pros: "The plan was nice and the crew was good"
Cons: "Seating was to close together"
Cons: "Luggage did not follow me. Still without."
Pros: "Mostly the crew made me feel welcomed. They were polite and courteous, when I ordered hot food, they advised there would be a delay, but promptly delivered it after. When they forgot my drink, they did not seem put out to get it for me."
Cons: "When I boarded, I was asked by a lady at the gate how many months I was pregnant, I felt her manner could have been more polite, and that, since she had noticed I was pregnant and I was quite tired, I might have been given a bit of priority to get to my seat, but I was stood in the queue and had quite a wait."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"
Pros: "Service and price"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours because of hydronic issues. I feel asleep and missed the food which was part of the ticket wasn’t woken up. Was then woken by the passenger behind kick my chair which was not comfortable at all and the entertainment system was something out of the 80s, screen so small could see the picture that well and the touch screen was not that reactive. Cabin crew we grumpy. Ashamed this is called British not what I called British........"
Pros: "Flight left Seville on time, and landed 10 mins early. Friendly crew. Marks and Spencer food available to buy on flight. Reasonable vegetarian options available - thank goodness. Didn't have to pay for extra leg room in exit aisle - probably because no-one had bought them when I checked in at airport. Would definitely recommend."
Cons: "Only downside is crew member in Seville at the airport gate could not be understood. She spoke English with such a thick Spanish accent and intonations that no-one understood what she was saying on the speaker. She also sounded as if she was arguing, as opposed to inviting us on board in a welcoming and orderly fashion. Although at times funny, it ultimately translated into a lot of noise on her part, and a headache on my part."
Pros: "Polite crew, flight was on time landing - even early. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "According yo the kayak app on the moment of booking the flight was going to Heathrow, but it went to Gatwick. In addition, the tariff did not include one checked luggage as shown on the app as well. Really disappointed with my first use of kayak."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, smooth flight, choice of small meal - great"
Cons: "No entertainment but it is a short flight"
Pros: "Some sleep"
Cons: "No food or drink provided in crappy seats"
Cons: "We booked seats in row 30, and your seat plan showed more than 30 rows, i think it was 36, but we landed up at the back against the toilets would never have booked if aware there were only 30 rows, and to top it by the time sandwiches got to us only wraps lef, not happy at all"
Pros: "On time, lunch"
Cons: "No entertainment but it was only a two hour flight"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Disorganised queues for boarding. Ground staff seemed a but overwhelmed"
Pros: "The staff where very good, was comfy for short trip"
Cons: "2hr 40min delay, and a very hectic and long boarding process"
Pros: "Quick and efficient. Very informative about delays."
Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."
Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."
Pros: "Flight on time, good crew."
Cons: "Legroom in Club Europe is poor, seating in the front rows should not have been densified so much."
Pros: "I liked that I got home safe"
Cons: "I didn't like the 2 hour delay to my schedule. Zero complimentary drinks or snacks to say sorry. Bumpy ride for two and half hours. Stuck on the tarmac at Gatwick for 40 minutes."
Cons: "Flight full takes longer time for boarding . But staff was nice and efficient . Lots of leg room comfortable chairs."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"
Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"
Pros: "Great service & crew. Food good for aircraft food"
Cons: "Half hour delay but no big deal actually. Could have done with more leg room, but again flight was e cellent price"
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the service I received onboard."
Cons: "I found out when I got to the airport that my flight was delayed for 3 hours. I never received an email regarding this information. That was extremely disappointing. This whole travel experience has really left a bad taste in my mouth about flying with this airline. Even my flight on the way back was a nightmare. The flight was closed early and I missed my flight and had to get on a later flight out of Heathrow. My connection was delayed and they changed the gate at the last minute so I had to run through the airport to make my flight to Dc. This has by far been the worst travel situation and it really put a damper on my trip."
Pros: "The flight was one hour delayed however the captain was extremely good in 1)explaining in details the reason for the delay (air traffic control and parking slot issues) 2) allowing us to take pics in the cockpit! It turned out to be a memorable experience! In terms of customer care, it doesn't get any better, thanks captain!"
Cons: "Delays are never good...."
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "We landed and I could get off the aircraft. The flight was early - although it meant my transport was late."
Cons: "Check in process chaotic and little information. Why does he in flight menu not have any gluten free options other than crisps or cake or fruit? Would you be happy with this on a 3 hr flight?"
Cons: "Seven hours before my flight, I got an email from British Airways saying my flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked on a flight the next day. I called them immediately and was told the flight was cancelled because of inclement weather on the route. I checked the national weather advisory and saw no such weather alert. The service rep at BA told me there was "absolutely nothing" she could do, at which point I asked for a manager. I waited for almost 30 minutes, and once the manager came on I was put on a flight that same night, on a different airline. If I hadn't pushed back and demanded a more reasonable accommodation, they would have done nothing to right their wrong. For this reason I am extremely unhappy with my experience with British Airways."
Pros: "Booked front row seats with great leg room which was comfortable"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Staff on board and a great captain."
Cons: "North terminal is terrible it is almost designed to be anti anyone with a disability the walk is far too long and the lift from tarmac is code protected so can’t be used. My partner had awful distress walking up the three flights of stairs to the Concorde as she had a bad knee, not bad enough to warrant mobility aid but by the end of the journey to the outside of the terminal she was almost in tears. We were very disappointed at the lack of management for the old the young and anyone with slight disabilities. So much more can be done."
Pros: "They were apologetic for the delays, which were out of their control due to bad weather They did their best to turnaround the flight as quickly as possible and make up lost time quiet flight due to time so no cabin crew coming back and forth all night for no reason"
Cons: "turbulence - again not avoidable time taken to allow us off the plane once landed - it would have been nice for us to get off quick after a long journey which was delayed bag damaged in transit as well"
Cons: "A 9.10pm flight from Split to Gatwick last two and a half hours late due to “.... we were assigned the wrong aircraft so we had to wait for a new aeroplane!!!”"
Pros: "Friendly staff okay service"
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane when everyone was boarding then was told to go back to the boarding gate because the plane was not ready yet. Then had to check in to the gate again. Journey was a bit rough too."
Cons: "2h delay"
Pros: "Bigger plane, which was better."
Cons: "Flight delayed Not enough food on plane. Boarding took forever long long queues at Lisbon but security was surprisingly fast. Landed 40 min late"
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour an a half and only landed at 12.30am. Missed my Gatwick express connection (as nexttraij wouldn’t be for another 2 hours 40 mins. So I ended up spending £120 on Uber to get home."
Pros: "That I could buy a ticket on the day (EasyJet said they were sold out at the desk but Kayak had one online - well done Kayak)."
Cons: "The queue to check in that was caused partly by weighing cases for the cargo hold and trying to charge extra at a higher 'desk rate' forcing people to either pay the desk rate or open their bags and transfer stuff to their carry on bag. The lack of room for carry on bags, requiring that some bags be transferred to the hold (caused by the above 'luggage transferring fiasco). The two people at the desk with a queue of hundreds waiting to check in. The one hour delay in the flight. The marathon walk to the other end of the airport to board the plane."
Pros: "The crew were still very professional, smiled all the way despite the delays and tired customers. It was one of the most quick boarding which felt right due to the time."
Cons: "There is nothing worse that the delay with the last flights of the day. Had the knock off effect resulting in loosing last train and incurring extra fees for taxis."
Pros: "Cabin staff are courteous and professional"
Cons: "Running extremely late without an adequate excuse. Made to wait for ages standing in the departure lounge because the dispatchers wanted to get us off their hands. Oh, and one other thing. GIVE US SOME MORE LEGROOM."
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "The plane had a hole in the wing. we sat for an hour on our sits till we got an engineer to look at it and put sticky tape. It was very stressfull flight. we couldnt go to the toilets while we were sitting on the tarmac for 1 hr"
Cons: "flight delayed"
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: "Efficient, friendly crew, excellent announcements from the flight deck"
Cons: "Late for 30 min overall, long boarding queue, coffee was so-so"
Pros: "The crew were great. The waiting rooms in Basel euroairport were good"
Cons: "A 7am flight with a two hour delay so we got up at 4am for nothing. The email woke us at 4am and said we must still check in at the same time. Once boarded we had a further delay of half an hour. The queues were quick at Basel but dreadful at passport control at Gatwick. Presumably because were were so late. Meant we had to run and stress ourselves to get next transport. We are too old for all that. If not for all that I would have been saying what a great flight"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Value"
Cons: "Speedy boarding is shambolic"
Pros: "Everything went according to plan"
Cons: "Gatwick Airport, automatic passport machines not working properly so ended up having passport checked by a human."
Cons: "Top"
Pros: "Worth paying for extra legroom & speedyboarding helped make one of the easiest flights wver"
Cons: "Food & drink too expensive and not high standard."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight was smooth, captain kept us updated throughout the flight, cabin crew was friendly and polite."
Pros: "Boarding, take off, landing & early arrival into Agadir"
Cons: "Anti social behaviour by a group of Asian lads"
Cons: "the three hours delay - or rather the 2.55hrs delay thanks to the super alwwdy descent we landed five minutes before being eligible for compansation. was great landing at 1.30am to no public transport"
Pros: "The process was uneventful but comfortable all round.. we left right on time and arrived back right on time."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic. One staff trying to do the boarding as well as arrival!"
Pros: "Geound and cabin crew were nice"
Cons: "Boarding with no system. SB were confused where to go. They disnt use the signs for sb boarders. They boarded sb families SA all together. So sb were stuck behind the large families. Long long wait till bus arrives. They pushed everyone in a hallway. About 40-35 min wait in the AC. Flight was short and ok. But getting to the point to fly was seriously long."
Pros: "Old aircraft and most uncomfortable poor seat and leg space"
Cons: "Delayed over an hour, no hand wash in the lavatory"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff throughout"
Pros: "everything is fine"
Cons: "food has no gluten free options"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Customs opened really late so there was no time to have any food before boarding, then boarding was delayed while already on the queue at the gat already anounced, and finally late to take off. We ended up arriving mire than an h late."
Cons: "Would like to be able to take two bags on the plane."
Pros: "On time and friendly staff"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "No problems with the flight or boarding."
Cons: "Didn't like the 3 hour 20 minutes delay"
Pros: "Staff were especially helpful at the check-in desk, ushering us straight through as we had three small children."
Cons: "Had to stand even whilst the plane pushed back waiting for staff to deal with fitting a child seat for the row in front that ultimately they were unable to achieve. At no point, even after they had failed to fit the seat, did they say it was ok for me or two of my children to sit back down. All attention was on the passengers they were dealing with directly."
Pros: "Price! Which i found out why it was so cheap."
Cons: "Aircraft disgustingly dirty. On a level that i couldnt open my tray. It was covered in dirt and drink and rubbish. Seats were worse than bus. Arm reat, well they should change the name to elbow rest as you can inly put the ellbow on it. Legroom, its ok for people that they are less than 150cm! As they push the seats close to eachother to get more people in, you find yourself sitting so close to strangers. Person in front of me hit me everytime he moved his armes. Check in was awful. We had to beg to get their attention to ask a question. Girls were so busy chatting. Boarding, so slow. Only one person. He was nice and polite. But process so slow."
Pros: "Good service & so nice"
Pros: "Crew service."
Pros: "Crew were extremely pleasant and made the whole experience comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing really. Didn't have any food so can't comment on that."
Pros: "Touching down at Gatwick"
Cons: "Being packed like sardines Being charged for everything"
Pros: "Crew ok."
Cons: "Automated baggage drop off No one to help with bags. Very late. Sat on plane for ages before lift off. Slow to get a drink. Hardly time to drink it. Very uncomfortable and annotingz experience."
Pros: "There was nothing to like!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 50mins but only found out at the airport after having spent 25euros on a taxi just to be there on time. Boarding took ages. Plane finally took off with a 1h+delay. Thankfully, I had not purchased an overprice "legroom" seat. I couldn't spot any on the plane. No food or drinks whatsoever available. Next time, i'd rather spend the extra £s and use a proper airline."
Pros: "New upgrade for 5 Euros at the desk. Put bag in the hold and got speedy boarding and bags were prioritised at the other end."
Cons: "Very, very large person next me spilled over into my seat."
Pros: "It was good"
Pros: "Airport security was efficient."
Cons: "Every group on plane seemed to have been purposely split up even though there were many empty seats. Difficult to book luggage on the website. They said there were strict size limits on cabin bags, but when we got to the gate they didn’t check any - we had to pay for an extra bag in hold when we could have just used a bigger bag for hand luggage. Everything was difficult. Bag drop didn’t work - we had to queue to to go to the desk 3 times and the lady eventually did it herself. Staff were polite and nice."
Cons: "Boarding in Manchester was a disaster. Scanned boarding passes, let everyone down the stairs to the apron, only for to be told to come all the way back up the strairs again because of a change of aircraft. Had to do the whole pre boarding and boarding process all over again. More interested in selling hot Panninis rather than check if we had a belt for our baby. Even after doing safety checks, they passed us and still didn’t have a belt for our baby. Only when we called them back And asked for a belt did we get one, and all this whilst the aircraft was moving. Waited over 25 minutes for our buggy bag to come out the baggage belt in Dublin."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly, courteous and professional."
Cons: "Literally everything from checking in to seat and baggage is unnecessarily monetized."
Pros: "nothing"
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: "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"
Pros: "'ve Ry quick"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Cons: "The heat, insane air con not working"
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!"
Pros: "On time and that’s about it"
Cons: "Hot, cramped, slow boarding and ridiculous wait times at the bag drop in. Almost missed our flight despite getting there 2.5 hours before boarding"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."
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: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."
Cons: "Delayed a little"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Everything. I’d rather walk than use this company again"
Pros: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"
Pros: "Managed to sleep most of the way so the journey went very quickly"
Pros: "Ryan air crew very good"
Cons: "No vegatarian food"
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "Front boarding stairs out of use - conjestion at rear boarding Extras for check-in return journey"
Pros: "We didn't crash and I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight was 90 mins late, we were herded like cattle onto the plane which was filthy with empty sweet wrappers littering the entirecabin, which in turn was full of crying children (whose parents appeared powerless/unwilling to comfort them). While none of this was helped by the poor weather creating epic turbulence and a near-miss with another aeroplane, I did take a flight the following day with EuroWings in identical weather which was far better controlled with less nausea-inducing turbulence so I do feel I can blame Ryanair for feeling quite sick as we left the plane. If we'd had to go in for a 3rd landing attempt, I'd probably have turned up for my meeting all covered in vomit as they don't even provide sick bags! Ryanair isn't just basic and cheap, they don't even do the basics properly. It's as though they're deliberately trying to make the experience as horrible as possible. Ryanair is dreadful. Never again!"
Cons: "leaving later than scheduled"
Pros: "Prompt take off and easy boarding.decent leg room"
Cons: "My husband was very disappointed with the coffee and the chocolate and cranberry cake. Prices very steep too.."
Pros: "Boarded from gate beside the executive lounge."
Cons: "Ground staff made final boarding call too soon. Had to rush from the lounge only to find no passengers had left the terminal steps to walk to the plane to board."
Cons: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"
Cons: "Very long walk on landing"
Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Flight delay and .no air bridge"
Pros: "Everything about it was smooth and easy"
Pros: "The price of the ryanair flights are great, and will probably be the reason I continue to use them"
Cons: "I am not bothered that there was no in flight entertainment, or that everything cost extra, a lot extra, like drinks (2.5Euros for a can of cola). It’s what you’d expect from a trip that only cost £14.99 each way... But, the things that don’t cost anything, the things you’d expect from any big brand weren’t there at all. Zero communication from staff about why the fliight was delayed (until we landed at Frankfurt) Zero personality from the staff. They looked unhappy, or overworked, or bored... Lufthansa, British Airways, AA, etc... all happy staff. Staff weren’t even communicating verbally... they mimed a lot of stuff... The safety breif was disorganised and they had to repeat it as the pilot interrupted... and the pilots announcements were very unclear, due to a lack of pronunciation of the words he was saying. If I was to offer a suggestion as to how this could be fixed, Inwould suggest that it has something to do with poor recruiting, low staff morale, or something similar"
Pros: "Delayed take off , arrived a head of time"
Cons: "Lack of information for delay"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The queuing for boarding and the speed for boarding was bad"
Cons: "= sardines and quite unpleasant"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no baggage tags to put cabin cases in hold and ‘random allocation’ seats actively place people as far away from each other as possible"
Pros: "The staff were friendly, the boarding crew clear and quick."
Cons: "Late take off, shouldn't happen for a regular short haul flight, meant I was too late arriving at my final destination"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "The landing very bumpy"
Cons: "Flight was very late.(over 2 hours) Notices not posted timeously No meal tokens offered, or anything else to soften the irritation Boarding and offloading by stairs into the rain - cheapest possible options."
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."
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: "Row 1 seating"
Cons: "40 mins late"
