Cons: The announcements regarding gate # and on time/delay kept changing until actual boarding, so was very confusing as the gates were on different levels. Once on the flight, I asked a young female attendant to help me put my heavy suitcase in the overhead bin and was surprised when she declined(I'm 72)

Pros: Crew worked hard to get us off the ground as the flight was late arriving - so the turnaround was fast paced.

Cons: Queue to board was ridiculous. Granted the flight was delayed but the communication with the passengers and the ground crew at the gate was pathetic.

Cons: The seats could have been more comfortable. Lots of people were separated from their party because they refused to pay to book their seats. One man had two small children and his wife was seated in the rear section. Some common sense when organising seat allocation please!!

Pros: EI-GSH, we were on one of Ryanair's newest planes at only six months old. Seats were comfy and flying at night, everything was well organised. Crew were helpful and approachable.

Cons: I was aiming to buy something from the gifts trolley on-board (the small 1:200 scale Ryanair plane) but they didn't have any available. Fair enough as they were days away from shifting stock to the summer magazine, fingers crossed it'll make it to the new selection!

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
