Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Too warm in airplane at boarding and took to long to cool"
Pros: "Easy boarding and quick to receive baggage in Gatwick"
Cons: "Late opening of check-in. 2 desks allocated so 2 long queues. 20 mins into check-in the queue I was in changed to priority boarding. This necessary information should have been indicated in advance as 90% of the passengers were in the wrong queue. As for aircrew 1 of the female crew was miserable as sin and unhelpful to most passengers"
Cons: "Why make you board the plane and then tell you there is a 45 minute delay"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. I felt valued as a passenger. EasyJet seem to try to improve their process continually."
Cons: "Nearly every EasyJet flight I take is delayed. I know this can be beyond their control but I think scheduling is a bit tight. That said they keep you updated often and delay times go down as well as up."
Pros: "I paid extra for exit row seats (more legroom) and speed boarding, and it was worthwhile."
Cons: "Went to the wrong airport, Kayak is so confusing that when I booked my flight I booked it at the wrong airport."
Cons: "Late and the crew wasn't helpful"
Cons: "Being late on both journeys! With no explanation"
Cons: "Late like usual"
Cons: "Being charged £90 when Inhad to change a typo on my boarding card. When I looked at my bc I saw that there was a typo. In the middle name section I had mis typed my name sstor..I finally worked out how to amends it..I corrected it & the next screen charges me £90.."
Pros: "I have been a fan of Easyjet for years but my last four experiences with them have been poor to say the least. A return flight to Naples earlier in the year and now Palermo shows that their attitude to customer care is slipping badly. All four flights were delayed to a greater or lesser degree. That happens and is usually beyond the control of the airline. What is not beyond their control is the way that they communicate during the delay and the way they treat their passengers. We are people not self-loading freight. Easyjet is fast becoming as bad as British Airways and they are by far the worst. A very frustrating and sad thing to see. The beginning of the end for Easyjet?"
Cons: "Abysmal communications. A don't care attitude. Not my problem syndrome. Treating passengers like cattle."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "High price to check luggage"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "It was delayed like the previous flight with easyJet to the holiday destination"
Cons: "Began 'boarding' the plane despite the fact people had not got of plane that had arrived from London. We waiting in corridor thing that leads to plane for over 20 minutes"
Pros: "Customer service was good"
Cons: "Delays both ways, hours waiting, no update throughout the process and if we are even 10 minutes late after staying updated online with the delayed flight times, we get told off satimof weeks can't board the flight."
Pros: "Was meant to be a 21.40 flight that was delayed until midnight"
Cons: "Arrived at gatwick after public transport closed with no assistance offered"
Pros: "Pilot's way of explaining delays & diverted route"
Cons: "FRANTIC at Marseille Airport Easyjet security check area Then after unexplained delays, at gate entrance my hand luggage was refused even though it was organised the same way as my outward journey and that was OK. Aggressive checker said it couldn't have been Easyjet - I don't lie, and my outward journey was Easyjet. Had to repack & so spoilt some contents. We were left standing in gate area for ages without explanation."
Pros: "Crew were really nice"
Cons: "Queue and staff at Nice airport were so poor/slow. Also flight was delayed"
Pros: "The welcome, the staff, everything was FAR better than my last flights with easyJet."
Cons: "New lights, lady behinds light was directly on our sleeping baby's head and we had to hold our hand over his eyes!"
Cons: "Decompression before landing was awful."
Cons: "Just fckin everything"
Cons: "They are so ridiculous with the carry on and charge me 60 euro for my carry on because they only allow you one bag per person, not even a plastic back , they are so ridiculous!!!"
Pros: "Besides the baggage ckeck in, the rest was good; boarding, flight and crew."
Cons: "I am disappointed with the baggage weight and the carry-on policy. They should be more flexible with that. Its only one carry-on per person but should not be counting on purses, lights back packs or laptops. I paid $94 for two checked baggages and only had my small carry-on and a little back pack with my personal stuffs when before boarding the crew ask me to make my bag fit into the small carry-on. Totally disappointed."
Cons: "Fairly cramped seats, constantly trying to sell me stuff at ridiculous prices"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Overpriced water £1.80 for small bottle rounded up to €2.50 - double ripoff"
Pros: "New laptop ban was notified by email and text, so all ready when I arrived at airport. This is a lowish cost airline and crew were good, but does offer really good value and worth paying a bit more than some of the cheapest out there. Not too much different to BA, but friendlier and better value. Flight was a bit late leaving, but arrived pretty much on time. Food is also pretty good value, high street cafe prices, although the ham and cheese toastie is not recommended. But everything else was fine."
Cons: "Laptop ban is a pain, but not Easyjet's fault."
Pros: "The flight was very late over an hour late and as a results I have to take taxi from schipol airport to Amersfoort which cost me a lot"
Pros: "Crew pleasant and professional. Explained the headwind would add time"
Cons: "No gate number posted at airport just told the flight was boarding!"
Pros: "No issues on outward flight, flight arrived early"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed for an hour and passengers were not informed why there was a delay until the captain mentioned it."
Pros: "Slight delay in boarding which seemed due to ground staff shortage resulting in 30 minute delayed departure, but overall the flight was good - no complaints."
Cons: "Being delayed Not being told anything"
Pros: "Air being recycled"
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "When boarding, they call out speedy boating holders, they forgot to call out families with children's"
Cons: "The website did not allow me to add a checked bag to an existing reservation which resulted in having to pay €45 at airport bag check (half the amount of actual airfare). Totally predatory practice especially for first time passengers of airline. The crew at boarding was less than pleasant. I guess there's a reason why the airfares are so low - manners and courtesy are not included."
Pros: "Easy boarding--priority boarding"
Cons: "So far to walk"
Pros: "Full flight. One working bathroom. The seatbelt light stayed on longer than I've ever seen on a flight and I was begging the crew to go to the bathroom. Utterly ridiculous. 200 people and one bathroom. Get it together."
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff good."
Cons: "Would not have wanted to be on the flight any longer as there wasn't much leg room."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "You gave us no support and little guidance when we had to find our way from Gibraltar airport to the coaches waiting to take us to Malaga airport today for our rearranged flight to gatwick. No one was there to show us where the coaches were, the snack was chocolate and crisps, the meal handed to us in Malaga was a ham baguette! So for us who eat healthy, or gluten intolerant, or vegetarian there was no food available all day... So no support, little directions, no real food and no care... Unless I have to I will never choose to fly easyjet again"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, good leg room as somehow got allocated exit row. Toilets nice and clean"
Cons: "One hour late taking off. I checked in carry on luggage when requested " for the greater good" but added time to journey - shouldn't be necessary. Long bus ride from plane to terminal also added time. Everything else ok"
Pros: "Makeing up lost time"
Cons: "Time taken to board"
Cons: "Approx 35 min delay on departure from London. Long waite time on getting off the plane."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the flight crew sounded professional and kept us informed of progress. the food was fine and not horrendously priced."
Cons: "the plane was late arriving and the information received on KAYAK and the Easyjet app did not match the information displayed in the terminal (the apps were correct)"
Pros: "We kept getting delayed and delayed. We were delayed for 2 hours due to the plane and crew not available and not being on time!"
Cons: "I was delayed. I had to be in London at a certain time. I felt that i very much overpaid and very upset about this PLUS we were subject to pay for luggage"
Cons: "Everything Easyjet is simply a poor company. Flights are late and not cheap, staff attention is very weak"
Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Huge trek to gate. Late - again."
Pros: "Well organised. Pollute efficient staff."
Cons: "One particular member of staff @Gatwick airport who was racist towards non whites."
Cons: "Horrible service, slow check in staff. Once arrived noticed my luggage was broken"
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. Flight was delayed but no gate information was given until boarding had commenced by which time 300+ people had to go through passport checks at Keflavik for multipleUK/Canada flights. When we reached the boarding gate, crew were unfriendly and screens showed boarding was already closed. the flight itself was average, but boarding procedure could have been improved as they were aware boarding would be at D gates (the only one that flies out to UK)."
Pros: "Nothing! This is the worst airline I have traveled with. Always late and usually by servers hours not just a few minutes late. I mean late when you have to wait for the announnouncement of your flight for hours"
Cons: "Personnel, seats (even in expensive preferential class which I used) boarding, they want to charge you even if you ask for a glass of water. Come on !"
Pros: "The inflight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The staff that works in the counter was very rude. My carry on bag which has fit in all the trains across Europe and other airlines did not meet the standards of Vueling so I was charged with 50 euros which is ok with me. What was upsetting was the attitude of one of the attendants of the counter. She was a spaniard lady lacking all customer service skills. I will never use this airline again"
Pros: "Seats comfy plenty of room"
Cons: "The delay which was no fault of Vueling"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with very little information given by the crew. There was a 15 min delay getting off due to there being no airbridge and no information from the crew. There was very little legroom. The seat in front was broken and kept collapsing on my legs"
Cons: "We had to spend €50 to check a bag that we can carry on to other flights due to weight restriction. There was terrible communication about a gate change. The flight was late and no one seemed to care or acknowledge that. The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Vueling is a horrendous company, delayed flights - very bad organisation"
Pros: "I slept comfortably. Great take off and landing."
Cons: "Charles de Gaulle airport"
Pros: "Nothing what so ever, not seen such a rude staff in my years of traveling. Totally no customer care"
Cons: "A bit more courtesy with passengers"
Pros: "Professional smiley crew"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, crew good, left and arrived as scheduled."
Cons: "Cost of on-board food & drinks"
Cons: "Boarding groups (divided in groups 1, 2 and 3) unclear"
Pros: "The plane was newish, with comfy seats"
Cons: "The crew spend to much time on trying to order / heat / distribute food. The distribution of the staff seems odd - the one taking all the orders, putting stuff into the microwave and collecting it, collecting the money, whilst the other just seems to steer the trolley"
Cons: "The flight was 1/2 late and hence arriving"
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and replacement flight delayed, no offer of food or compensations"
Pros: "Straightforward flight. I feel like I would fly with vueling again but from a different airport."
Cons: "It was delayed by 30/40 minutes and the price was quite expensive (but that was probably my fault)"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "If your in rows 38-40 you will not get any drink or food as it takes so long for the drink trolly to reach you before landing"
Pros: "When check-in online I was given 1st row seats, as a result I was treated as an excellence customer. Great service."
Cons: "Delayed again to depart, and over 30 minutes to show reclaim belt to get the luggage"
Cons: "They told us we didn’t have seats and that we’d have to go on standby. All staff were giggling and not very helpful. In the end we managed to get on the flight which seemed to have at least 4 extra empty seats. Poor customer services and communication to us of whether we would get the flight or not and what to do if not."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight due to an earlier plane being cancelled. My boarding pass was issued with no seat number which meant I had to wait with a large group of other people until everyone that had been allocated a seat number boarded. There was no communication from their staff and departure was delayed well over two hours. Things didn’t get much better on board as the crew left it so late to start the food service only passenger upto row 24 got the chance to buy a drink or food before they had to stop serving and prepare for landing. Add all this to the saga that was the outband flight and you’ll understand why the whole plane burst into laughter when the crew announced “welcome to Gatwick, apolagies for the delay, and we look forward to flying with you again”. Shocking service! Never again!"
Cons: "On arriving two hours early to my flight I was told that I was being put on standby because the flight was full. Not sure how I got bumped from a flight that I bought a ticket for 3 weeks ago? Upon waiting at the gate I came to realise that 17 other people had also been bumped. How does an airline overbook a flight that much? We were led to the baggage claim and told to pick up our bags to be rechecked- then the flight attendants disappeared, giving us no further direction as to where to go or what to do. My bags did not arrive on the carousel, either did anyone else’s that had been bumped. We walked up to the check in desk only to be told to consult the baggage service desk downstairs. Upon doing that we were told to go back to the check in desk. After going to the check in desk again we were told to go to the customer service desk. After doing that and waiting another half hour, we were given new tickets and told that our baggage had left on our original flight and would be waiting for us in Barcelona once we got there. Our compensation for all of this hassle was only a free meal from the restaurant. When we went to the restaurant we were told that we were only allowed one of the cold sandwiches and a small drink. Absolutely appalling as we were starving and exhausted. All of the flights were also delayed, however all the boards continued to say they were ‘on time’. The board for the flight we eventually took said we were ‘on time’ despite the fact we were still standing at the gate at the time we were supposed to depart. After arriving on a flight 5 hours later than we should have arrived, We were then told by the baggage desk that the luggage had not arrived in Barcelona and were instead back in Paris. So the staff in Paris blatantly lied just to get us to leave them alone. No apology was offered at any point of this whole ordeal, no compensation other than a sandwich and a bottle of water, and i’m now left with absolutely nothing but the clothes on my back. Not even a complimentary toothbrush which has been given to me along with toiletries and a t-shirt the last time my bags were delayed. Absolutely appalling from all aspects of this whole company. I am sorry to say I’ve already booked my return flight, however after that flight I am never flying Vuelig again!"
Pros: "It arrived at its destination in one piece and not on fire"
Cons: "Tiny seats, plastic seats, late as usual."
Cons: "The boarding time has been changing every few minutes since the morning. I arrived in the gate where there were about 30 people with boarding passes but no assigned seats all overbooked. Half the people left on a bus then boarding stopped and we're returned back to the terminal going through security and hour or so later. The company reps had a big attitude problem and could provide no explanation to what and why anything is happening. In the end they tell us to leave the gate after 1.5 hours wait and look for new boarding info around 2pm. I managed to get on the flight by chance: no updated info was announced - I by chance heard a poor fellow working for the airline trying to find people at a nearby cafe who were supposed to be on that flight. If I had my headphones on I doubt I would be able to board that plane"
Cons: "unorganised deaprture @ barcelona airport where everyone was allowed to board at the same time. Also our flight way delayed but Vueling did not text anyone on our flight to inform us."
Cons: "Sitting at the back of the plane meant that we were the last to be served any food and only had about 20 mins to eat anything that was left over prior to landing. They ran out of most hot food"
Pros: "crew excellent and after much discussion they performed miracles"
Cons: "wife is disabled,told she had aisle seat,staff on board had to shift her 3 times,we were booked in together but sat apart on both trips,full marks to the cabin crew who really did a great job of moving people around but we had no help from last minute.com and less from the airline when we phoned in regard to my wifes mobility scooter.sorry its back to Easy jet."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but that was not Vueling’s fault. Despite the delay the staff did all they could to notify passengers and leave as soon as possible."
Cons: "Our hand luggage had to go into the hull so we had a long wait at the other end. Cabin crew explained 220 people and space for 180 bags, wouldn’t mind as much but I follow the rules and only bring one bag when people in front of me have 2 bags! Too ch down was very bumpy!"
Pros: "I've lost my job! The flight first thing in the morning should respect that we rely on them to get on time in the morning. One in 3 flights of Vueling are delayed! Ryanair is far better in this point! Today I really hate Vueling"
Cons: "I also lost the train tickets! I had to pay twice for everything. An apology is not enough, it sounds like they are laughing on us!"
Pros: "Cheap, clean, great on board crew. I arrived early for my flight and was able to change my flight to an earlier one cheaply, quickly and hassle free. Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Shocking check in. Only 2 desks open queued for 45 mins just to check in. Despite arriving in plenty of time. This was a Saturday lunchtime and the queue quickly built up and despite several members of staff being around no further desks were opened up until the queue became huge."
Pros: "Some of her crew members were nice"
Cons: "Some other crew member were not nice. Also not allowing online check in when travelling with babies makes life difficult as we have to queue in a long queue with a bored baby"
Pros: "On time, easy check-in and smooth boarding"
Cons: "Seating has limited leg room if you are tall. Seats also quite hard, but bearable over short distances."
Pros: "On time. The price."
Cons: "All as expected."
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"
Pros: "We boarded and left on time, there was room for my luggage in the overhead. This is a budget airline so I wasn't expecting any thrills and thats exactly what I got - a functional, almost comfortable experience."
Cons: "You can't help but stress slightly not knowing if you're going to find a spot in the overhead."
Pros: "Nothing. Was too uncomfortable."
Cons: "I couldn't fit my legs in the space between seats, so much so that I had pins and needles in my feet by the time we landed. The food is really expensive. Never flying with this airline again."
Pros: "clean aircraft"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "The personnel was pretty nice and we arrived on time."
Cons: "I have never been on a plane that crowded, there is not an inch to breath..."
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."
Cons: "Insufficient leg room my knees touched the person infronts chair and when they reclined my knees were under pressure from the recline. It wasn’t very pleasant."
Pros: "Flight was fine. I chose a good book."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Short 2 hour flight"
Cons: "Much too small space. Felt like a sardine."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed they made up time in the air."
Cons: "Seats are very close together so not good for long haul flights. Not entirely comfortable. ."
Cons: "Delayed over two hours both ways. Crew didn't make it down the aisle with the trolley for refreshments. Didn't have food vouchers and would not give me more than a a small glass of water even though we were stuck on a plane for over 5 hours."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less than 20cm from edge of seat and back of seat in front. Late."
Cons: "Very narrow seats, in fact the most narrow I've ever been on. Plane was delayed both ways. No real explanation as to why."
Pros: "The crew was polite and boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Security at the airport"
Pros: "The flight was quiet, the staff were freindly, the flight itself was up to the standard I would hope for from Brittish Airways and Vueling."
Cons: "Re wait time for both the check in and security were both nearly an hour. I arrived with more than enough time time for these things and eat and shop, but i barely made my flight."
Pros: "Everything was ok, there was no food or entertainment but it was a short flight so I wasn't expecting much"
Cons: "I had no complaints"
Pros: "Once we got on after an hour delay we had friendly crew and had a row to ourselves in the 2nd row. Comfortable seats and didnt pay luggage fees as many others have. We took on our backpacks that were larger and enjoyed our trip."
Cons: "Our flight was an hour late as seems to be usual for Vueling and some discount airlines. Also had to pay for any refreshments of water, coffee or snack. Seems to be normal for some discount airlines."
Cons: "The crew were very rude, there was no more overheard space in the cabin so two people in our party had to check their luggage, the washrooms at the rear of the plane were out of order and the they were out of three quarters of the food on the menu - effectively nothing to order!"
Pros: "The check in was super easy, they attendent was lovely and the flight itself was alright. However, there was a toddler screaming for 30 mins and not member of the crew adressed the issue and talked to the mother ot tried to calm down the kid."
Cons: "They called us to queue up way before they started boarding. We stood there in a long line for almost 40 mins. They could've called right before they actually wanted us to start going in the plane."
Cons: "Delayed. Confusion over gates."
Pros: "N/A did not fly."
Cons: "I had a medical emergency, and these are non refundable so I contacted the airline to let them know I would not be on the flight so I would not be held further accountable for our absence."
Pros: "Seat not too cramped. We didn't get lost - as BA flight did recently!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed! Info re delay was limited."
Cons: "Late takeoff - late arrival"
Cons: "Weight limit and fees for cabin luggage is excessive. I had to pay twice for priority bording so I could bring my carry on and then they tell me it does not fit the required size. Never again I’m flying RyanAir and ever coming to France."
Cons: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"
Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."
Cons: "Food was not offered and there was no entertainment but over all the flight was fine."
Pros: "This flight issues were so plentiful they provided me with knowledge on how not to run an airline."
Cons: "5 X delays, Incompetent pilot, No organisation of ground crew 2.5hr late"
Pros: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."
Cons: "I booked a flight using Kayak and did not receive a confirmation email with boarding pass. When I arrived to the airport they said that because I didn't have a boarding pass they need to print it and charged me 50 euro. I felt that this was a scam for Ryanair to make money off their customers. They said it was Kayak's fault that I did not receive a confirmation email. Then after my flight left, an email came. I want a refund of 50 euro."
Pros: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"
Pros: "Boarded from gate beside the executive lounge."
Cons: "Ground staff made final boarding call too soon. Had to rush from the lounge only to find no passengers had left the terminal steps to walk to the plane to board."
Cons: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"
Cons: "Very long walk on landing"
Cons: "1156.64 When we arrived at the airport the clerk at the desk would not look up from her computer to help us, we went to the window and she continued to refuse to check us in. When we handed her our passports she bluntly stated that it was too late to check in because it was 10:00 and the cutoff was 9:55. We asked if she could make an exception due to our issues with transportation or if she was able to help us rebook a flight and she said no. We had already paid for this flight and had checked in baggage and paid separately for the two bags and she told us there were no Ryan air flights for our destination. We promptly rebooked with another airline at a separate airport and consequently had to pay for another form of transportation to the airport as well as a new flight and another two checked pieces of baggage. I have traveled all over Europe, the US, Canada, Central America etc. and never in my years of travel have I felt so belittled and disrespected especially considering I was a paying, respectful and loyal customer. It goes without saying I will never use this airline again and will be strongly recommending other airlines to friends and family."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Awful service. Very uncomfortable seats. 0 air conditioner, I was wearing the entire flight. I asked for ice and they said not without the purchase of a drink. Water cost money. Never Ever ever recommending Ryanair."
Cons: "The workers weren’t flexible even they didn’t help us to check in and we miss the flight ! I’m very upset"
Cons: "Flight was very late.(over 2 hours) Notices not posted timeously No meal tokens offered, or anything else to soften the irritation Boarding and offloading by stairs into the rain - cheapest possible options."
Cons: "Sitting 10 rows from my wife"
Pros: "Counter agent was excellent, friendly and professional, she even helped us get our carry-on properly assigned to go on the plane when the Nazi-like fellow, Ali, at the terminal insisted that unless it fit in that grossly undersized test frame the airlines like to use, we would have to pay an additional 35€, to get it checked. Our lovely counter agent came to our aid and spoke sense to Ali with a verbal slap about the head-free entertainment-, helping to put some semblance of joy into the experience that is flying Ryanair. If I have a choice, Ryanair would never be it. Crew was lovely allowing my wife and I to sit together after not being able to do so online without more stupid fees."
Cons: "See diatribe above. If you can discern what to do better from above, excellent, if not, it matters not as I will make it my personal mission to inform all and sundry about the horrors of Ryanair travel. Your airline makes Sleazy Jet seem like top shelf."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "We had a 9:15 am flight, we had bought one 15kg luggage for check in beforehand and we each had our own carry on (group of us 3) given that we had an early flight and it took us over an hour to get to our airport we had very limited time to get through check in and security to board our plane. Upon access to our boarding gate they would not let us in due to the size of 2 of our carry on. We understand it is policy for them to fit into the carry on fitment test in order for it to be free so we were then directed to pay extra for our carry on and have them checked in. By this time it was 8:40am, the person in charge for checking in luggage said it was closed and to let the boarding agents know that we can get through. Although we told them this (lots of going back and forth wasting more time) the boarding agent said it didn't matter and we needed some sort of proof that they said it was ok. We had no idea what to do then since they wouldn't let us check in our carry on nor get through the boarding gate & pretty much getting brushed off whenever we tried to ask if there were any other options. Finally by 8:50 we decided to take out some items and carried them. Through the security line we see a lady with a carry on almost twice the size of ours! Very frustrated with how things were dealt with considering they knew our plane was about to depart, our experience was a complete nightmare & will most likely not be flying with Ryanair again"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket, i was not clearly informed that we HAD to check in online before arriving to the airport. This was a huge issue. I held off checking in because I wasn't sure if my bag would fit in the overhead bins as I didn't have a tape measure. So I figured, like with every other airline, my wife and I would check in at the desk and pay for the extra checked bag if necessary. Well we ended up having to pay €50 EACH to the airport administrator to get a boarding pass. I went through all the documents I received from the airline, and nothing states that we had to check-in before we arrived. They said they sent me a text message to my hotel, which was the contact number I had put when we bought the ticket. That didn't do anything to help. We will be fighting this with the airlines, discussing our bad experience, and never flying with them again."
Cons: "They charge me for checking 50 Europe I haven't seen something like this it has to be optional it is a steal.overal everything was bad .delay in flight no food or beverage they just want to sell things and products im very sorry about this company."
Cons: "You have to check in way ahead of time, I actually even followed the emailed prompts to check in and add baggage but when I went to the airport they had no recollection and refused to print my boarding passes despite my 200+$ receipt for already checking in and adding baggage. I then had to pay 50$ per person for them to print boarding passes after playing tag with the attending staff. Absolutely worst airline. I could have flown first class in a premier airline for the cost."
Pros: "Crew were polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours. There was no announcement that there was a delay or explanation.. The Priority boarding is very poorly organised . when we were finally let out onto the tarmac there was a mad scramble by the non priority customers to get to the plane although the one lady in charge did control things to a degree I might add that at Gatwick going to Belfast the Priority boarding was a joke. If you are going to make customers queue in the corridor please put a sign up outside to indicate the you dont't have to queue"
Cons: "We have never flown Ryan Air before and are not from Europe. We booked or flight one day prior to the flight and were shocked to show up at the airport and pay 90 euro to check in at the airport. This is simply a price gouge. I understand a small, nominal fee for this but not 90 euro! That is asinine. I will purposely avoid Ryan Air in the future as this leaves a bad taste in my mouth."
Cons: "I was told next time I have to be careful with my carry-on because I'd have to pay £50 otherwise. However, my carry-on is TSA approved, it has a lot of pockets so it may appear to be a bit bigger but I don't overstuff and I've had no issue getting my bag into the overhead bin. Granted, the officer was kind when she said it, but I also measured my bag and weighed it before my flight and I shouldn't feel there should be an issue with my bag. On my return flight I had souvenirs in my bag (meaning more in my SAME bag) and no one said a word about my carry-on."
Pros: "The price was fantastic! the best around :)"
Cons: "There was no notification from cabin crew to advise us to ensure we collect our luggage BEFORE we go through the glass doors at Gatwick. We were expecting to show our passport and collect our luggage from the carrousel but didn't realise until after we went through the glass doors and had to wait over 40 mins for it to be brought to us. What was so astonishing- we were told we weren't the only ones this happened to. It would be very useful if cabin crew made the passengers aware of this to avoid it happening time after time with others/flights"
Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"
Pros: "Price - boarding was good, especially considering plane was full."
Cons: "Punctuality - about 40 mins late both ways - I kinda factor that in now!!"
Pros: "The price was right. ...at least until I figured out that my checked bag cost twice as much as my airfares ticket!"
Cons: "I think maybe I should have flown on Aer Lingus instead. Next time I will do more research. Absolutely nothing is free on Ryan. The only free thing is your carry on bag. Food, drinks, prearranged seat assignment, etc. all cost money."
Cons: "My daughter and I were traveling together and my flight was booked a day earlier than hers due to miscommunication. When I asked to change either of our flights (so we could be on the same flight), they wanted to charge full price to change flights. I declined to pay that much and was crying prior and during flight. When I asked the flight attendant for a water to take medicine with (showed them my pill) they wanted to charge me for a water even though I was obviously upset (my nose and eyes were red)! Very disappointing experience with Ryannair!!!"
Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and fairly smooth."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you have to pay extra for EVERYTHING! For a boarding pass, for any luggage (other than a small carry-on), for a seat assignment and for a cup of tea on the plane, The flight is relatively inexpensive, but you end up paying a lot of money for the"
Pros: "Ryan Air is the worst airline. They rip off unassuming people by exorbitant charges at the airport."
Cons: "The customer service is nonexistent and the companies policies ar designed to take advantage of customers."
Pros: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."
Pros: "Cheap, quick, and safe flight."
Cons: "Because the tickets are so cheap, they try to get money out of you at every turn! They charged us $20 each to print our boarding passes at the airport (it wasn't enough to have them on our phones)! They make you pay to check a bag and you have to arrange it ahead of time (cannot ask to do it at the airport). They made a big fuss about the sizes of our bags and threatened to charge up to $55 per bag if they needed to check them at the gate! They have tiny compartments at the gate but our bags fit without any issues on the plane itself."
Pros: "The flight was very late and then the gate information came up almost as the flight was boarding."
Cons: "Lack of boarding information"
Cons: "Checked our party (two adults and three kids with backpacks) of 5's hand luggage, letting most other single travelers get onboard with hand luggage. What is the point, if you choose not to travel with checked bags and at the gate they still check hand luggage?"
Pros: "long lines, unorganized, uncourteous, no help for a disabled passenger to check-in or board."
Cons: "First problem started when the Rynair website would not recognize my information when I tried to check-in online. I assumed that this may have been completed during the recent purchase because there website said my flight was confirmed. Arriving to the airport later than I would have liked but within more then the 40 minutes required to check-in when I arrived I was put on the incorrect line, after explaining that I wasn't able to check-in online, then when told finally I needed to go customer service. I should have been on the line to check-in instead, and after standing on long lines as a disabled passenger was told that it was to late to board. Your customer service agent didn't apologize for his staffs incompetence putting me on the incorrect lines to check-in and then did not offer to put me on the same flight schedule for the following day unless I payed an additional $100. I would have made my flight in more than enough time especially in such a small airport if the staff put me on the correct line to check-in. I was flying to Madrid on business and missed and had a small window of opportunity to meet a client who because of the delay would no longer be available because they were also soon traveling on business.This snow balled into a variety of problems; I had to pay for the apartment in Madrid I had pre-booked, and train tickets that where purchased would no longer be used, I had to go back to Paris and find another hotel to stay in."
Pros: "Horrible . The app to make reservation it is poor designed. They charge me twice 200 euros and employees don't care with the excuse that everything is online. Never again"
Pros: "Special priority boarding was helpful. Leg room was good. Flight was safe & reasonably priced."
Cons: "Child behind me was angry and his mother did little to keep him from kicking my seat for much of,the flight. I let them know it was disruptive but had a window seat so,i could not easily get this frustrating experience communicated or corrected."
Pros: "Nothing !!!"
Cons: "Twenty five minutes late taking off. Flight time 1hr 5 mins ... Time waiting on Tarmac on arrival 1hr 1 min before we got to terminal."
