Airline reviews

Pros: "Nothing amazing its opposite, ryanair.com its the worst airline in Europe or maybe on the world. EU parliament should closings this airlane"
Cons: "no chance to be better, I think its all Passenger should expect only its will be worse"

Pros: "Crew were amazing. All brilliant. Captain was super super cool too."
Cons: "Free snacks."

Cons: "Got asked several times for passport checks, about six times. Didn't quite understand why so many. Not many seats in Lisbon airport. Same with toilets."

Pros: "Not a lot very basic"
Cons: "Now I know the meaning of Cattle Class"

Pros: "On time, quick boarding. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No air bridges"

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early, the staff were pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit grubby."

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. ."

Cons: "Staff at check-in desk were rude. My carry on luggage was taken from me and placed in the hold even though I booked my flight long before Ryanair changed their rules about charging for carry on luggage. The sticky tab that the member of staff placed on my back has left marks all over the handle."

Pros: "The stay"
Cons: "Ridiculous long wait even though Ryanair said to still go for the original time. 9hours in the airport is not good enough"

Pros: "Crew on board"

Pros: "front-line staff were sincere. Plane was well-maintained."
Cons: "Chat staff wasn't competent."

Cons: "Delayed, then slow luggage reclaim (I believe that's your problem rather than the airport)"

Cons: "We are a family with a three year old and have been separated by the allocation system."

Pros: "By the time you were up it was on its wayndowm 40 mins"

Pros: "Flight delayed, 20 minutes to get through passport control, chaos at the car park due to changes & fees! Welcome back to England ☹️"
Cons: "Ryanair delays, Manchester airport in general, poor and anti-travelers focused"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were forced to get on the aircraft when it arrived late, with another 737 taxiing next to it( I know illegal). Then forced to sit on the plane for nearly 3 hours on the ground in heat. Staff were rude and awful. Everything was stupidly expensive, even water!!! When we eventually got to Manchester we had to wait in the plane again for 45minutes for the bus to arrive to take us to the airport. Only one person on passport control. Where our bags were all in a pile on the floor because of some malfunction. Ryanair flights are hell!!"

Pros: "3 hour delay due to an Italian air traffic control strike. Not the crews fault but they handled it well, especially the captain who spoke to everyone face to face"
Cons: "The selection of food was dismal and expensive, glad ok didn't buy as the quality looked poor"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "40 minutes baking on the bus to take us to the aircraft, Lack of communication Disrespectful and bad attitude of the crew Paying £80 to put luggage in hold to be told as I didn’t report that my case was damaged when I arrived at 01:00 am (in the morning) with an onward journey of 2 hrs I could not now place a complaint! Despite having photographic evidence!! No tap water available - given ice and boiling water I am done flying with Ryanair"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Coffee"

Pros: "Food was hot and tasty."
Cons: "Near 2 hour delay."

Pros: "Accessibility guys in both Bergamo and Manchester were brilliant."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too many passes with food & drink"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight then held in pens for ages then held on the plane too."

Pros: "Ryanair still not putting their customers first. Poor experience checking in online. Had to use online chat which needed several attempts to get an answer, be careful calling Ryanair as they charge 13p per minute"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Couldn't take on bag as not priority. Booked extra leg room seats expecting priority but no longer Won't travel with Ryan air again"

Cons: "30 minutes waiting, New lugguage policy!"

Pros: "Once boarding began, it was efficient. Service was polite and efficient."
Cons: "Narrow seats, poor selection of drinks and food."

Pros: "Easy embarkation, left on time, uneventful flight, arrived before schedule. Just what I wanted."
Cons: "Everything was just fine."

Pros: "Typical Ryanair flight. You know what you are getting"
Cons: "Delayed. Chaotic boarding"

Cons: "The service is poor. They just want to rip you off. The bag price is ridiculous. When you check in they put you in separate seats do you pay. I paid for my son when we were flying out but when coming back l refused to pay. Guess what happened they allocated my 22 year old to sit on the emergency exit. The crew then came to me asking if l could swap seats with my son as he was not allowed to sit there as if it was me who had allocated him that seat. If it was the other way round they would have asked me to pay. When it suits them."

Cons: "Not much extra leg room and one attempted rammed the trolley into my foot trapping my toe against the wall and the didn't even respond to me shouting out in pain"

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: "They got us to Manchester alive, although late as always with Ryanair"
Cons: "Everything else, Ryanair provided an awful service, delays on both ends of the journey. No info provided to us and to top it off, there was a screaming child in front of me and next to me."

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: "Ease of being all done online check.in . Seats . Loved the crew the friendliness. The seat comfort and space ."
Cons: "The allowing of drunk passengers on return rude loud quite scary . Crew dealt with them very professionally"

Pros: "The flight was speedy and the plane was one of the new ones with a new interior, which was a nice change from the flight out to Germany."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and disorganised, the plane set off late as Ryanair always do, there were incredibly loud and rude customers onboard which the staff did nothing about. The seats weren't comfortable at all and the headrests were awful. Generally just an uncomfortable plane, the new design looks nicer but the seats are a lot thinner and it shows Just felt very cheap, the flights weren't even particularly cheap either"

Pros: "It was much, much better than the flight to Ibiza because the passengers were at least civilized ,were quiet & did not cause the crew any problems maybe because they were knackered after partying."
Cons: "Nothing to report. All went well. Very efficient & pleasant."

Pros: "Effective service point A to B. Flew from Hamburg Manchester and seated 17A. Leg room good on the exit row."
