Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fast flight with no issues"
Cons: "Check In- as the airport was so busy, I nearly missed my flight due to queuing in lines for long times and poor communication form airport staff as to priority boarding etc"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Very cramped Carry bag allowance too small"
Pros: "I got there nearly on time"
Cons: "65% of customers had priority so a bun fight to get on. We then tried to use the faster entry on non priority to get into the lounge and were sent back to the priority queue. families with kids weren't given the option of getting on first. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Lack of space for bags."
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: "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: "The crew is doing its best job given the cards they gave been given to play with !"
Cons: "It was all good for a budget airline."
Pros: "On time and quick boarding, arrived before schedule and no issues with flight"
Cons: "Some passengers very noisy and shouting throughout flight but not the airlines fault"
Pros: "No hassle"
Cons: "Airport security"
Pros: "I liked getting off it he aircraft n Dublin."
Cons: "I didn't like that we were told the aircraft was ready to board at 8.30 pm and we were still stood waiting at 9.10 pm. I didn't like the staff's 'nobody cares, you're the last flight of the day' attitude, I didn't like we were late in but there was no apology for that, I didn't like that we got whiplash on landing, and I didn't like the apathetic manner that we were let off the aircraft. I realise it had been a long day, but it was for all of us. There were a lot of parents with very young children on that flight, so leaving them standing for 40 minutes to board just made them all fractious. By the time we boarded, those poor kids were beyond tired, so they were all crying. If Ruinair knew they were going to be late, there was no need to speed us towards a queue we'd be standing in for a good while after, they could have allowed the parents, kids and elderly to remain seated. All this did was serve to underline how little respect they treat their passengers with. Its unnecessary. ."
Pros: "Crew on board"
Cons: "We are a family with a three year old and have been separated by the allocation system."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Paying for hand luggage plus the then obligatory and unnecessary early boarding. having to pay to sit next to my children The warm cold drinks"
Cons: "Lack of comunicoation and lack of services. Probably it was a bit cheaper than the competitors. But I made me think twice for next time Ryanair cross my way."
Cons: "Terrible time checking in on line .Finally got some help but was told if I did not check in on line it would cost me another 55euros. :0("
Cons: "We booked our daughter priority so she was entitled to bring a hand carry on board. When she got the airport they insisted that she had to put her hand carry in the hold despite it having her passport in it!! The Captain very kindly helped her retrieve it from the hold at the end of the flight but why did she ever have to put it in there when she was priority and we paid for it?"
Pros: "The efficiency of the staff, the cost of the flight, the food."
Cons: "The queue at the airport."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
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: "Cost of on board services"
Pros: "Boarding and flying time very good"
Cons: "Noisy passengers (stag party and 40birthday)"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too many passes with food & drink"
Cons: "I was trying to check in in the past 24 hours. The system wouldn’t allow me and I ended up paying 50 Euros extra only to check in what I had already paid for in full in the first plCe. Then, just to top off the wonderful morning - I got an agent whose attitude was extremely rude and poor to inform me correctly what was the next steps and procedure. Finally, both my hand bags carry on get checked in and now I am stuck at the airport waiting for two little bags that could’ve easily got on top of my compartment where I was."
Pros: "Can’t complain about £14 flights"
Pros: "That there was a possibility the plane crashed, so my flight would end earlier."
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."
Cons: "The Ryan Air staff were ignorant and complained when asked any questions."
Cons: "My connection at Stansted was very tight. Faced with long lines which could have mennt me missing my flight, I was five no option it to upgrade my ticket. Flight was also 20 minutes late."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are not comfortable. I was in a bus at the back and when it arrived at the demarcation door, the driver didn't open all the 3 doors! He only opened the front door beside himself so everyone had to exit by that door."
Pros: "Flight took 1.5hrs rather than the expected 2hrs, departed on time. Cheap as chips if bought at right time."
Cons: "No entertainment and poor food choice quite expensive and limited inflight purchases"
Cons: "Never got a heads up for boarding pass and baggage. I now know to pay $100.00 more when dealing with your competitors."
Pros: "Once boarding began, it was efficient. Service was polite and efficient."
Cons: "Narrow seats, poor selection of drinks and food."
Pros: "The Gin and Tonic"
Cons: "3hr delay and the worst landing I have ever experienced, Stevie Wonder would have done better."
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"
Cons: "Asked to put cabin bag in hold despite having no other hold luggage. Plenty of room for cabin bags right above my head. Even more delayed time"
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't go"
Cons: "Very small space..no basket on seat Staff asked customers for change to give the change that they owed to other customers Couldn't sit with my family due to odd number of seats together Needed entertainment for children"
Pros: "Price was ok if you don't have to check in luggage."
Cons: "Had to check on line to avoid a check in fee !!! Seats are crammed, thank God it was a short flight. Long line to check bags & to board"
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: "Cheap and chearful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Polite staff. Flight departed on time. Pleasant flight."
Cons: "My seat/seating area was littered with crisps, this was very obvious to anyone and should have been cleaned up. The seat tray was sticky."
Pros: "Cheap..ish, reasonable experience."
Pros: "Excellent throughout outward and inward journey's"
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."
Cons: "They tell you to check in online, it is not possible, then they charge you an extra €45 at the airport. Second time it has happened, it's a scam. Last time I fly Ryanair."
