Cons: "Better leg room and organisation of the hand luggage in above lockers"

Pros: "flight left close enough to onetime to arrive onetime, flight was smooth"

Cons: "Not be 1.5 hours late"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Online layout of the plane is deceiving. The plane isn't separated into classes is just a standard set up throughout the plane. Also the more leg room seats that your party for is almost not worth it as the additional leg room wasn't even noticeable. Again the layout of the plane was standard."

Pros: "The crew were courteous and friendly, the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing stood out as needing improvement."

Cons: "Nothing"

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 check in information given in good time regular messages about potential disruption friendly staff"
Cons: "some times cabin staff were a bit too business-like al few people skills would be good"

Pros: "Nice plane"

Pros: "Only crew was good, everything else was horrible"

Cons: "40 min departure delay due to Stanstead airport unable to allocate the usual landing slot before we left Glasgow."

Pros: "Very fast turnaround, prompt boarding and disembarking."

Cons: "Missed connections due to long delay. Air crew good, ground crew not."

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: "Kept well informed about ghastly delay"
Cons: "3 hours 11 mins late arrival at destination"

Pros: "If you have a full plane - get luggage of people at an earlier stage without charging!"
Cons: "Luggage situation"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I received a flight delay notification saying that my flight is delayed by 37 minutes. But I still did arrive airport 2 hours before my flight, checked bag On time and went through security clearance 1.5 hrs before. The gate number was not assigned and later I found out that my flight took off on time. So I had to come out by front desk and rebook the flight to different airport which cost my extra taxi fare half day and too much Hassel. Never ever flying again in easy jet."

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: "Check in was efficient and good customer service"
Cons: "The plane is "bare-bones." I get it, it's economy. However, that's no excuse to neglect basic comfort. The seats for both my flights, two different planrd, were worn such that I could feel the medal supports. Very uncomfortable. We sat in the rear. Stewartess sat behind and loudly gossiped the entire flight. Would I fly again? If no other option, yes"

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: "Clean cabin."
Cons: "I always seem to sit next to an obese passenger who simply cannot fit in one seat (so they spill into mine)."

Pros: "Modern aircraft, once we were permitted onto aircraft the boarding was quick as both forward and rear doors were used."
Cons: "The crew didn't bother to offer a full retail service on board, aircraft had seat pads missing, crew sat eating for bulk of journey. Delayed inbound meant plane was over an hour late, and not cleaned between service."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and onboard refreshments ok. Staffs were polite so on the scheme of things it was a good flight."

Pros: "I went airport for boxing pass they changed 165 £ if some one dnt no"

Cons: "Ridiculous charging 25euro for a small backpack, by threatening to let you on is truly extortion"

Pros: "never ever use this Momondo again"
Cons: "no customer service"

Pros: "Politeness of the staff"

Pros: "Online booking was nice and easy."
Cons: "Plane was small ,seats were not comfortable and plane was not connected with eye so passengees were waiting outside of plane in cold weather."

Cons: "App was down couldn’t check in had to pay cash(euros for trip). 250 euros for 180 pound as Ryanair only accepted pound (had to change at airport hence the rates) absolutely disgusting"

Pros: "Cheap(ish)"
Cons: "Worst plane seat of all carriers. No leg room, to close to seat in front no where to put anything , no usb charger. My local bus is more comfortable & better equipped. Same as 90% of people only fly Ryanair as a last resorts. Friend tried to down load boarding pass in the morning of flight was not able as need to be done 24hrs before. 50 euro to get printed at airport outrageous. Perhaps you could Justify £10 but 50 euro!! Why do they try so hard to rip there customers off at every turn"

Pros: "Nothing, only good thing was that the girl at the check-in was very nice and felt bad for the situation, then inside the plane after we landed, the manager was very attentive and nice to me, she heard my complaints and made sure I spoke my part."
Cons: "- They charged me 55 GBP for missing the check-in - They didn't let me facture the suitcase even tho I paid for the priority entrance. I had to throw away my liquid bottles. - While boarding one of the flight attendants told me to walk faster because they were late, even though I had two heavy bags in both of my hands. Then he insulted me in Italian and after I asked him 8 times to tell me what he said to me he told me to shut up and sit down. I sat down for 2 hours in a very bad mood trying to control myself from starting a fight. After the flight I waited and spoke with the manager about it, If I'm not wrong the name of the attendant was Luca and the manager heard my complaints. This was the worse flight of my entire life, I have never been treated so disrespectfully in a plane, I felt humiliated. I will never touch a Ryanair plane ever again. I definitely should be getting a refund for this."

Pros: "The prices were ok. I’m short (5,4) so I can’t complain about the leg space. The cabin crew were pleasant, I can’t say the same about al the workers in the airport, ruining your mood before a holiday is slack - especially after"
Cons: "Not all of your staff are polite, I’m not sure if it is because we were in a country that does not accept or respect people of “colour” but I could see that there was definitely a heavy line of different treatment to other races - sadly from a very well known brand. I did feel the luggage prices were slightly tacky, and extra for on cabin prices. Also, cleanliness is clearly not a priority for all either."

Pros: "Very chip flight but expensive tricks about luggage paid my cabin bag but not allowed to check them I will never flight with Ryanair air."

Cons: "Very bad service. Everything is bad"

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: "Lack of info on cabin baggage until the gate. Embarrassing situation of having to pay for the excess baggage."
Cons: "Better information about baggage pre fight and more polite staff."

Pros: "Trip went well easy check in Know problems"
Cons: "The stay was too short would like to have had more time in Copenhagen"

Pros: "Despite a late departure, it wasn't particularly late when we landed."
Cons: "Flight departed late due to high winds (not the airline's fault) but the result of leaving late was a missed departure slot. To avoid passenger disturbance, they told everyone that there was an extra passenger on board? Not the best way to defuse a situation..."

Pros: "Took off on time"
Cons: "Random seat allocation due to not paying the extra fee?"

Pros: "Nothing. Flying with Ryanair is like travelling in purgatory"
Cons: "The app would not let me check in the previous day then they charged me a disgusting €55 to check in. The staff were unable to use any discretion. They clearly all hate working for Ryan Air. Flight was delayed by two hours. Overall appalling experience as it always is."

Cons: "crew where talking very loud so could hear then along the back 5 rows clearly. could not sleep due to it. they where bad mouthing passengers in general..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad baggage policies"

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

Pros: "boarded the plane to find it looking like there had been a kids party. food all over the seats and floors, rubbish under the seats. pilot was barely competent making a harsh fumbling landing"
Cons: "disgusting plane"

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

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed for three hours then they gave us a 5eur/£3.50 voucher which we were only allowed to use for pizza and WATER. No other soft drink. The delay was ridiculous. The allowed us to board and be seated for about 15 mins before telling us that there was a problem with the aircraft. DONT YOU CHECK THIS BEFORE PASSENGERS BOARD?! Priority was a waste of money we all got on at the same time anyway. Rubbish service, rubbish airline and my £26 flight turned in £60 easily with all the extras which were a waste of my money."

Pros: "We made the flight!!"
Cons: "Notification of which Gate!! All the steps Down to the tarmac then up the plane steps!!! Priority- didn't seem to mean anything- everybody boarded the same!! The Cabin crew- Rushed announcements!! And worked as I feel robots!! But definitely got Value for Money!!!"

Cons: "1hr 30 delay Gate change Queue moves Late baggage"

Pros: "Crew were ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times, no information given why. We were in priority and allowed down the stairs then kept there for 10-15 minutes. Boarded a bus to the plane then we couldn't get on as there was an issue with the steps. Took off after the final delayed time. On landing, we were told the airport was short of ground crew so we had to wait to steps and once off had to wait for 15-20 minutes for the baggage lane to be announced."

Pros: "Spacious seats with leg room"
Cons: "Too much talking over intercom"

Cons: "Unacceptable waiting time for baggage"

Cons: "There were 3 queues, supposedly- one for priority boarding, one for back row seats and one for the rest of the passengers. But there was only one person at the boarding gate and she was accepting anyone with a boarding pass regardless of which queue they came from. This resulted in a lot of shoving and pushing and a complete bottleneck at the gate. It was uncivilised to put it mildly. Really poor experience. Next time I’ll try a different airline even if I need to pay a bit more."

Pros: "Friendlly cabin crew. Clean environment."
Cons: "Delayed flight."

Cons: "The departure lounge was horrible"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Notihng"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Poor customer service specially in Berlin"

Cons: "Make sure to all you need to do is the bag drop at checkin. The lines to see an agent are horrendous."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "In the past, you could accept to be hauled like cattle through the gate, walk to the plane under the rain, sit on a bench, be bother with scratchers, etc. because the cost was really low. Not anymore. Nowadays the generic name should be very-high-cost/service-ratio airlines. They charge you way too much for the same crappy service as always. Bye, bye!"

Cons: "The plane was dirty"

Cons: "The process is set up to extract exorbitant fees."

Cons: "Late departure"

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

Pros: "Generally the whole experience was very good. I'd use Ryanair again."
Cons: "Acoustics in both the airport and airplane were very poor. I understood almost nothing in French or in English."

Cons: "7 hour delay"

Pros: "not crashing"
Cons: "being treated like a dispensable inconvenience at every turn"

Pros: "Nothing. It was all mediocre."
Cons: "You need to serve food or at least water. Airplanes are very dry. It makes you seem like a rip off."

Cons: "For the price was fair"

Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"

Pros: "Planes are new."
Cons: "Ryaniar uses questionable practices to charge for services that are free on almost all other airlines. What is most offensive is not the fact that they charge but they make it difficult for passengers to reduce or avoid such fees."

Pros: "Was much shorter than i thought"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Website hard to use"

Cons: "Service was terrible. Employees were rude. Charged for everything."
