Pros: "Fligh attended were so friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle for not only for us " family of 4" but also for a lot of customers. So basically one of the boarding workers went through the line and ask how many luggage do we have. My dad said she already checked once while we were waiting by the gate. Anyway we made the line and basically the 2 nd time that she checked our loggage and I said we r 4 ppl and each one carry on and she said that besides carry on we had 2 back pack which we fit laptops . She checked and left and when we start boarding the said oh wait here you have 2 back pack so we need to pay for each carry on €60. She not only pulled us out of the line but also asked too many customers to go out of the line and fit even their small purse inside carry on. I was so mad cuz she already asked 2 times Before boarding and she didn't say anything. And during boarding she made us to leave the line and got the back packes inside the carry on . We travelled 3 countries in Europe w one back pack and one carry on. This was my first time ever experiencing this . I would never ever take any flight w easy jet again."
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: "left and landed on time"
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."
Cons: "Did not see in kayak that no baggage was included and also could not add luggage. Went to the airport with time enoight to do it there annd they charged me €100 for a bag and skis. They say no baggage was included and adding in the airport costs more. When said i did not see the baggage option in kayak they told me i first have to book in kayak, then go to easyjet. Com and modify the booking to add luggage. So easyjet ends up being all but easy. I enden paying 180€ instead €80 for this reson."
Pros: "Went from A to B."
Cons: "They charge for bags, first flight was overbooked so we almost didn't get on, the people at the gate had no interest in being even somewhat sympathetic. It would be nice if at some point during the check in process or ticket buying process were told that we can only bring one carry on so my girlfriend and I aren't scrambling to fit everything into one bag outside the gate. Also the crew took our coats from us when we had them on our seat because they said they needed to stow them, which makes no sense. I would not and will not recommend easyjet to anyone."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and friendly....lovely!!"
Pros: "Everything but the constant delays of these flights on Sunday evening . Last Sunday had the same problem and the invoked cause was traffic are barcelona airport."
Cons: "Recurrent delay"
Pros: "Flight went well, staff was great, there was a class on a type of field trip that made boarding difficult but other than that everything was fine"
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."
Cons: "Space and environment."

Pros: "the hospitality of the crew"
Pros: "Seems they dont care others customers who do not speak Spanish...!!!!"

Pros: "Modern aircraft. Very clean. Polite staff. Some more willing than others to be friendly and helpful. Staff left you be rather than bombarding you with sales of various items like with some other low cost airlines"
Cons: "Boarding was very late for no apparent reason. Left us almost an hour delayed once boarded. Some of the staff were unfriendly while others were lovely. Not much space at all between the seats both forwards and back. In flight service was poor. As I booked through BA I expected a BA style of flight; in flight meal and drinks."
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: "Comfortably seats and more reliability."
Cons: "It’s a classic ryanair flight. Need I say anymore!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."
Cons: "The announcements made by the main air steward were mostly unintelligible due to a very strong Spanish accent."
Cons: "Great attractions and clean descending"
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: "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."
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: "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: "The pilot and safety tannoy is not loud enough"
Pros: "'ve Ry quick"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "Price and punctually."
Cons: "As mentioned being separated by the “ random computer choice of seats. We were put rows apart both with empty seats either side of us, we fly lots and only Ryanair and Jet2 do this."
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."
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: "Finding an affordable flight to allow the family to get away for a weeks holiday that would otherwise not be possible."
Cons: "Having the family sitting separately on the flight as we were not able to afford to pay additional money to per book seats. But it was only a 2 hour flight so we coped. Think it would be a good idea if the airline didn’t just assume that because a child is 11 years old they are able to sit away from their parents. My son has additional needs and so although his chronological age is 12 years his developmental age is only 7/8 years so being sat away from his parents was very stressful for him. Maybe asking during booking if any of the party hav s additioonal needs would be a good idea."
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: "leaving later than scheduled"
Cons: "landing had some turbulence"
Pros: "Ryanair gets you there."
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: "Ground crew went on lunch break causing an hour delay. Seat was dirty. Could not understand what the crew was saying."
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: "Delay of flight and delayed access to car rental (made via Ryan Air). Ryan Air did nothing to help with communicating the delay to the car rental company."
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: "Delay on departing"
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: "Arrived at 5.45, checked in, gone through security by 06.30. Flight delayed by 15 minutes, due to passengers not Ryanair. Arrived 15 minutes early so would have arrived earlier at Palma. Staff seemed friendly. No real complaints."
Pros: "Travel with you again and again"
Cons: "I am satisfied"
Pros: "Row 1 seating"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "Some crew nice"
Cons: "Not enough room for carry on bags."
Pros: "Service on time"
Cons: "People next to me"
