Cons: "We didn't select our meal option for vegetarian because the last time we did we ended up with a horrible, horrible, hockey puck like dry food option. We assumed there would be a cheese pasta option, as there usually is, well we were completely wrong. Both options were meat, even the salad had meat in it. So we got a roll with butter, a tiny fruit, and a disgusting wet dessert. Even the breakfast was meat and cheese. I got online to select our meal option for our return trip, and the options are out of control. We have a lacto-ovo-vegetarian option, whatever that is"

Cons: "Flight was late on way back. Also no food optipn for vegetarians"
Cons: "I booked this flight months and months ago on Kayak, excited by what I thought was an excellent deal to go visit an old friend. When I got to the Boston airport, I was told there is a fee to check a bag with the ticket type I purchased- of 90 DOLLARS each way!!! This is absurdly expensive. I tried to pay with cash as I had very little on my card, and was told this isn't possible. So I had to pay the fee, and arrive at my 7 hour layover with next to no cash on my card- too little to buy a meal in the airport. So I had a miserable layover experience. I do not recall seeing this baggage fee listed anywhere on Kayak when I booked my flight- it looks like this policy took effect in September 2017, but I booked my flight in July. I am very upset about this additional charge- it is dishonest and I will not be flying with TAP again. I am also considering using alternatives to Kayak, as the TAP representative said that it's Kayak's fault the baggage fee wasn't listed."

Cons: "We arrived early to airport but it took almost an hour to go through check in..We arrived early to airport but it took almost an hour to go through check in... we did not account for the long security which held us up.. it would have been nice if they would have called us out over the intercom and if need be held up flight as we were running from security to the boarding area. Afterwards the guy at the desk was not helpful at all and told us to leave the airport and then go back to the ticket booth.. if they could have made a call that would have been nice."
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: "SEN airport. Friendly cabin crew. Plane on time! Thanks!"
Pros: "On time good service Barry Pope"
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."

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?"
Pros: "The staff in Mykonos were super helpful, wheeled me through the airport, got someone to help me with my bag and got me onto the flight. The crew did put my bag in the overhead for me."
Cons: "I was told I would be helped in the UK. I was not I was told by the staff to be careful and not "slip" on the wet floor as I walked down the metal steps on a broken and cast foot. The staff said they could not radio through and get help for me because it would take 2 hrs. Luckily passengers helped me instead- ridiculous. I was a solo traveller."
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: "I like the EasyJet app and the ease of getting through security at Malpensa"
Cons: "I did not like that my flight was delayed two and a half hours, and EasyJet's idea of compensation was €4.50. I had meetings this morning that I had to cancel; Transportation into London is very challenging at 2:30 in the morning - we were supposed to arrive before midnight; and now one day, of my THREE day trip is pretty rough because I couldn't get into London until 04:30."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Pros: "Take off to landing everything was good"
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: "All of it"
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: "I really like flying with easyjet, it's a budget airline so I know there will not be amenities such as free snacks and drinks. The crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was organized and quick. Overall a very good experience."
Cons: "I am short so I don't need a lot of leg room but the seats are very narrow. I was pressed between two grown men and was a little too close to be comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and onboard refreshments ok. Staffs were polite so on the scheme of things it was a good flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice, flight good"
Cons: "You changed the airplane and didn't tell your customers. I did't have my seat and we had to wait 5-10 min before getting seated. We were already on the plane when we discovered what was happening, blocking the aisle. Very unconfortable"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "First, when getting my boarding pass I was NEVER notified that I had the right of one bag only inside the cabin. Once I reached the gate I had to check in one bag and pay a ridiculous amount for it (more than the ticket itself) You should be much more proactive in communicating this as most airlines allow one bag and one personal item on board, so most of travelers might be used to this policy. Then, seating space is very cramped, not even a drink is complementary, and it is not very tasteful to have the place full of advertisements and have a market inside the plane"
Cons: "Last row on the A320 and doesn't have a window so makes it feels very cramped and uninviting."
Pros: "Comply plane and nice staffs with a decent variety of snacks, sandwiches and drinks."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Easy jest sold me ticket when wasn't sure they will have enough seats.after spending 3 hours to get to the airport and pass check in and security i have been told right on the front of the plane that there is no seat for me. They offered me next day flight from Luton when my original one was from Gatwick! They even didn't want to make refund and wanted to give me flight voucher.pleased after they have been told i will make a post in social media they made the refund. Never ever with Easyjet.no mayer how much will cost me!!!! Shame on you Easyjet!!!!!"
Cons: "EasyJet made us pay for our checked in luggages almost more than the ticket because we did not do it online: 14 euro per kilo! We did not and had no way of knowing. Not that cheap of a flight after all."
Cons: "No communication and little respect that people are taking time out of their lives to travel. Utterly appalling"
Pros: "One of the crew member was really rude, she made a mistake went off on me and didn’t even apologize, she act like nothing happened, I tried reaching out to the airline and they never got back to me"
Pros: "The crew seemed very nice."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time."
Pros: "Seats were slightly more comfortable than Ryanair."
Cons: "Not making us bounce between gates 3 times because they didn't know where the plane was going."
Pros: "La sinceridad del piloto al señalar que los retrasos se debieron a los proveedores de servicios en el aeropuerto de Roma"

Pros: "The worst crew I’ve ever experienced on a flight, and I’m a frequent flyer, both domestically and internationally."

Cons: "Did not get to board my flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Had to exist and renter via departure and go through security again because there was no direct transfer, it was horrible having to go through security again."
Cons: "I was informed upon arriving that I was on "standby" for a flight I'd booked weeks in advance, and told the reason was I had not paid the surcharge to reserve a specific seat, and Vueling oversold the flight by 10%. Not cool, Vueling. Also the flight was almost an hour late taking off."
Cons: "A bit late getting underway but flight crew courteous, plane clean, deboarding efficient. Overall, reasonably comfortable efficient budget airline"
Cons: "Pay for all, it's ridiculous for the price of the ticket"
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: "Assigned exit seats to us"
Cons: "Rude staff, grabbed my shoulder to ask a question instead of just asking verbally, not allowing us to bring carry on bag, etc."

Cons: "very easy checkibg, friendly at airport, snd same day reminder"

Cons: "vueling is the worst airlines ever"

Cons: "Lost luggage. If they would let me speak with someone live, I could give them an idea where they lost it. Looking online, I see many comments that the airline has not. located nor compensate for lost bags."
Cons: "At the check in gate the man made us pay for the luggage we carried on the plane"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Flights usually delayed Cabin crew are rude specially Lucia who was on the Vueling 08:55 flight from Bilbao to Barcelona on 21/04/2018"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Everything else! Where am I supposed to put my legs?"
Cons: "Your staff was so unfriendly and treated us like some cattle. I have missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Difficult to say, probably just returning home"
Cons: "1. After 4 hours in line in front of the boarding desk (I was between the first 10 people in line) due to a flight delay, when they began boarding they decide to start from the 15-31 rows. As I was on the 6th row, for which I payed an overprice when buying tickets, I eventuallypassed frome the first 10 people to be boarded to the last one. 2. As a consequence of point 1. As I arrived in front of the airplane door, the crew said the remaining luggages couldn’t be boarded with us because there wasn’t anymore space in the lockers. 3. The crew was very unprofessional. So, in the end, after paying more for first rows tickets and after being one of the first people in line to be boarded, because of poor organizarion I ended as one of the last to be boarded and without the right to bring with me the personal luggage. A nightmare"
Cons: "Boarding was messed up. Paying for priority boarding then having the gate open the boarding area to all passengers created some heated words, plus people pushing ahead for boarding."
Pros: "crew was friendly and timely ..providing regular snack/beverage service on a relatively short flight"
Cons: "beverage/snack service should be complimentary like itbia on most other flights"
Cons: "It was so uncomfortably cramped on the back row that my knees were numb by the end of the flight. I am tall but not ridiculously so. I think there should be minimum standards for legroom that exceed what was available on this flight."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "very less leg space which doesn't even permit to head down on front tray."
Cons: "Never again"
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."

Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "You had to pay fo water..."
Cons: "I had to pay €129.00 for an extra piece of luggage a a service free of €162.00. The crew was unfriendly. They did not say hello nor did they say good. Last but not least, they did not provide me with an entry form."

Pros: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."
Pros: "that it wasn't a long flight"
Cons: "the crew weren't very friendly, from checking in to landing. too stressed out I think. I wasn't made to feel like I wanted to have a return booking. Also there was pressure to add extras that I didn't want. I resisted but when I've paid for something I don't expect to be coerced into paying more for something I didn't need. For example seat selection."
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: "Some of the staff were nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours, and while that happens sometimes, what really upset me was the compete lack of help and competence from the staff. It seemed to me nobody knew what to do or what was going on. I tried to talk to three different desks and the cabin crew and nobody could help at all."
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."
Pros: "No hassle"
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: "Airport security"
Pros: "A pleasant journey."
Cons: "It was fine. No complaints."
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: "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: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."
Pros: "Nice and cheap."
Cons: "The window was in the wrong place so I got a bad neck trying to look out."
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"
Cons: "you sent the us the wrong us the bookings the wrong way round malaga to newcastle 10th of march instead of the other way rounding the same on the return flight newcastle to malaga 17th march .hence had to rebook costing us a fortune.!!!"
Cons: "Delayed a little"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Everything. I’d rather walk than use this company again"
Pros: "Ryan air crew very good"
Cons: "No vegatarian food"
Pros: "Price of tickets!"
Cons: "Walking out on the tarmac to board."
Cons: "leaving later than scheduled"
Pros: "No hitches. I recently bought proper cabin baggage with Ryanair approved dimensions and had checked in online so no hassles. If you follow Ryanair guidelines and have requested paperwork and baggage allowance your experience should be incident free."
Cons: "Nothing to declare."
Pros: "easy to check in with self-service check in and bag drop"
Cons: "seats are not particularly comfortable"
Pros: "Everything was acceptable apart from their petty ploy to split couples up"
Cons: "Because we don't want to pay extra for seating we don't check in until 4 days before the flight. Usually this is not a problem but on this flight they split us up, one at the front & one at the rear, then they ask if we want to pay extra to sit together. This is a very petty ploy to get extra money. It doesn't work !! The passengers just swop when on the plane"
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"
Pros: "Everything was very good"
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: "The air crew were excellent"
Cons: "Communications around boarding and gates was chaotic and our take off was delayed for over an hour. Staff were rude and unhelpful. They seemed confused themselves and found it difficult to communicate anything helpful to passengers"
Cons: "They took my cabin luggage to the cargo even though it is the right size due to no more space in over head compartment and I believe if they where strict about the size with the All Pax and only allowed one price each in the hand the compartments would have been sufficient. You need to make sure to ask pax to be at check in desk 2 hrs before dept during peak periods due to security takes longer time make the story short I was happy with the above all standards Abdullah Benafif."
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: "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!"
