Pros: "Superb food"
Cons: "Food timing, displays for video tiny and no selection possivble."

Pros: "You can charge your devices (only in one plains from London to Portugal)"

The food arrive way too early. I believe the airline has put less of an effort on these planes due to the nature of the passengers... I have been traveling for 20 years and I never felt so disappointed by an airline... I will not use this airline ever again"
Pros: "The pilot could fly the plane."
Cons: "The servers were rude."
Pros: "Flight was only 15 minutes late"

Pros: "Flight was on time and landed early. We got small samdwiches with a snack and juice."
Pros: "Cabinstaff were friendly and professional"
Cons: "1) I tried several times while traveling but was unable to figure out how to choose a vegetarian option for the flight. When I called customer service, after a long hold time, the woman I finally spoke to told me it was too late to order vegetarian and refused to help me. I have never flown another airline (Air India, Turkish Air, United, American, China Southern, etc., etc.) that did not make this easy to choose during booking or check-in and that did not already have a standard ovo-lacto vegetarian option on the regular menu. Vegetarians practice for all sorts of reasons, including religion and health needs. It's unacceptable to make it so difficult to meet your meal needs while trapped on a plane for nine hours. 2) The check-in agent did not know the rule about all remaining seats being opened for passenger choice three hours before booking and insisted we had to pay to get aisle seats despite one of us having a health problem necessitating her standing up and walking every 45 minutes. Then another agent told us we couldn't choose seats for free for our Porto to Newark flight when we check in for our Madrid-Porto flight because it wasn't technically three hours before the Porto-Newark departure. But how were we supposed to choose seats for the Porto-Newark flight three hours in advance if we are in an airplane flying to Porto at that time? This makes no sense. Seats should be opened for every leg of a same-day journey at the same time. The agents were unhelpful and unsympathetic. 3) This was an old plane without options to choose a film or show to watch. Instead, passengers could flip through a few channels and hope to find something of interest that was already playing -- there was no way to begin a film or show from the beginning if you landed on it in the middle of its running time. I cannot recommend TAP Portugal to any of my friends, family, or colleagues after this experience."
Cons: "Never made this flight"
Cons: "I was told that I can check in my luggage free of charge. So I bought some wine and checked in for the connection flights. They charged 35 euros and to final destination 75 euros. I tried to watch some movies and they had only one English channel. I couldn’t believe that kind of shitty system still exists. I don’t recommend it."
Pros: "Crew on board efficient and polite. In flight entertainment on a rolling programme of videos played an an user-friendly player and all in 2 languages. Meols - two of them- stable and standard airline fare served quickly and efficiently by crew. Comfy seat with recline and tilt. Blankets and pillows provided as standard."
Cons: "The wait for check in was almost an hour longer tha. Expected and nowhere comfortable to wait. Executive lounge overpriced and meagre without any reclining seats. May as well have saved the money and used the terminal facilities No in flight magazine available to my seat for on board purchases and very little choice off goods on offer."
Pros: "Ice cream for snack."
Cons: "Flight from Oporto to Lisbon, when we landed they did not set up the ramp to exit the plane, I had requested mobility assistance. And the ramp was right next to the plane."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Wait at baggage claim was too long"
Pros: "Complimentary beverages and snacks. Understandable English from the crew about the flight information"
Cons: "Food was a piece of bread with some ham.....why bother?????"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, but could use a bit more padding for a long flight. The food was decent, and there was a good assortment of movies, music and TV shows."
Cons: "The crew seemed unhappy to be there."
Pros: "Everything was perfect! The staff was friendly and the food was nice. I found that there was more leg room than on other airlines."
Cons: "I used TAP to depart beautiful Portugal."
Pros: "The plane had a helpful crew, the plane was modern in that they had a usb charger and plugs for both US and European voltages and there was plenty of space to relax in during my flight."
Pros: "Offered food, left on time, arrived on time. Seat next to me was empty."
Cons: "Turbulence, only one check in line at the gate."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Very friendly crew. Coach seating comfortable and roomy."
Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."
Cons: "Long delay back sitting around at airport, we got notification of flight being late but told we still had to book in at normal time .Why not the 2 hours before???? Mad"
Cons: "Late boarding"
Cons: "We didn’t take it. Although it was scheduled for a 6:50 am departure it was delayed until noon and we would have missed our flight from London to the U. S. It was very hectic and frustrating trying to find another flight. We got NO help from ez-Jet. Luckily TAP Portugal was extremely helpful and we did make our Delta flight with lots of extra help from them."
Cons: "Five hour flight delay (7:00 to 13:15) which forced us to buy 2 new tickets to same destination same day on another airline as we would have missed our return flight to the US from Hearhrow otherwise. Totally unacceptable!"
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."
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: "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: "Cost too much for checked bag which when included makes cost completely uncompetitive. Plane was more than an hour late boarding, then when we reached Gatwick, they kept us on board waiting to deplane for at least 1/2 hour"
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: "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"
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: "straight forward and short flight"
Cons: "delayed flight going out and coming home no leg room on flight and air con over us not working"
Cons: "Took over an hour for the luggage to be delivered to the belt."
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."
Pros: "This was the 4th time I've flown with easyjet and on each previous occasion it was delayed. This time the flight was cleared for take-off on time and we actually landed 10 minutes early."
Pros: "Quick and easy to find."
Cons: "A male boarding person. Now, my son has a hidden disability, which means he gets tired easily and need to sit down, so long queues are difficult. We were asked to go through boarding and people with children could go through speedy boarding, which we did, but were stopped by this male boarding person, as my son had a tiny bag across his shoulder and a trolley bag. We were then sent back to repack our bags and went last in the queue, this obviously made my sons legs very tired and he couldn't understand why this male boarding person made us go to the back. It is very unfortunate to have a hidden disability when you are a child, but to be singled out by this male boarding person was an awful experience for my family. As it were many other passengers had two BIG bags, let alone a little tiny one... Tut tut tut, give the crew customer service courses..."
Pros: "Departure and Arrival on time"
Cons: "Too short distance to fly... :)"
Pros: "No delay Everything was fine"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Three hour delay. Seats are so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Kiwi booked only 15kg bags instead of the paid 20kg bag on my booking confirmation. We had to pay an extra 90 Euro. It ruined our morning."
Pros: "I slept comfortably. Great take off and landing."
Cons: "Charles de Gaulle airport"
Pros: "Friendly check in agent"
Cons: "For the check in agent to advise passengers that E gates are extremely far for a regional flight & to make our way directly there. I was traveling with my mother, we arrived 2 and half hours before our flight and plus did online check in but the walk to the gate took us about 40 mins that we missed"
Pros: "Quick, cheap, and convenient"
Cons: "Like riding a park bench through the sky"
Cons: "Chaotic under staff and poorly organized. Forced to rush and nearly miss flight despite being at airport well in advt"
Pros: "Flight delayed, staff provided no info and was generally nasty."
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: "Everything except luggage handling."
Cons: "New luggage came off plane in pieces."
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!"
Pros: "It arrived at its destination in one piece and not on fire"
Cons: "Tiny seats, plastic seats, late as usual."
Pros: "Plane was on-time and I got to where I needed to be. Price was also very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a painful long queue. Plane was crammed and hot. Food / Beverage cart didn't come around until the flight was almost over."
Pros: "This was the first time I travel with Vueling and the crew was so nice! and the plane so clean! Loved it. Much better than LATAM for example that was my next flight."
Cons: "My bag took to long to get out I got a little scared it didn’t get to Barcelona, but everything was ok at the end so as an overall everything was perfect!"
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: "Flight attendants were very helpful, especially because we were traveling with a sick child. They let us disembark first when we landed in London to seek medical attention."
Cons: "We only flew with this carrier because British Airways partners with them. Wouldn't have flown them otherwise."
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"
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."
Cons: "Late a full hour leaving Florence, so late into London."
Pros: "On time. The price."
Cons: "All as expected."
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."
Cons: "Left late (and therefore arrived late) due to starting the boarding process late and slow boarding. I wouldn't go so far as to say the attendants were rude, but they were not friendly, either. Could not check in online ahead of time due to flying with a US passport (which was not a problem with, for example, British Airways, flying from London to Rome)."
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: "Nothing !!"
Cons: "No snaks, no food, no water and no reclining seats. Vueling wants to sell you everything. Is like going to the mall. My family give you F"
Pros: "Short 2 hour flight"
Cons: "Much too small space. Felt like a sardine."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Luggage drop and boarding pass took 45 min.- too long"
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."
Cons: "The flight was unable to take off on time, which they did not communicate until after boarding. All of the passengers had to sit on the plane on the tarmac and wait an hour until we were able to take off."
Cons: "Took no responsibility for missed flight to NYC after flight from Barcelona was delayed. It took 3 hours in Gatwick airport to get rebooked on a flight the next day. Did not agree to pay for accommodation or food or transport for the 24 hour interval between flights. Terrible."
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."
Cons: "EXTREMELY cramped. Worst experience since Ryan Air."
Cons: "Worst experience ever. Will not fly with them ever again. Avoid at all costs"
Pros: "cheap ticket"
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!"
Cons: "The landing was very rough. My mom and I felt sick."
Pros: "Atraso del vuelo"
Pros: "Yes, the onboard crew did a great job."
Cons: "Their crazy rules with “hand luggage” makes me nuts."

Cons: "They charged us an additional 55 Euro per person for a boarding pass even when we have checked in on-line the night before."
Pros: "price time of flight"
Cons: "unable to choose your seat free expensive tea and coffee and others"
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."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
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: "My own boarding was went ok"
Cons: "What was the most annoying part of the whole experience was the fact that they were other passangers on there school trip. Yes they are just still kids, but from the very start of them boarding, thats when everything just went downhill. The kids was just screaming, shouting, and sprinting into there sits. Even after being told to quite and calm down, all them were still screaming and shouting at the top of there vioces throughtout and non-stop for the whole flight (even after landing and getting into the bus). The worst fact of all is that, there was just far too many of them for everyone to handle (by the flight crew, and the trachers). It was also the first thing in the morning so it’s not like everyone would most likely be well rested already."
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."
Pros: "the pilot didn't care about landing, it was the worst landing ever"
Cons: "the pilot didn't care about landing, it was the worst landing ever"
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: "Customer service"
Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."
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: "Boarded on time"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable. Not roomy but fine. Crew was polite when not hawking wares. Felt safe landing"
Cons: "After paying €30 for a 20kg checked bag ahead of time, we waited for 20 minutes to get our bag weighed and checked. when it was our turn in line, the steward simply left and we eventually went to another line, where they said there was no bag on the reservation, even after I showed her my online receipt. She was very rude and clearly didn't want to deal with us. We stood for another 20 minutes in a different line only to be told that the bag was clearly on our reservation. We finally got the bag checked after yet another wait. We waited about 25 minutes in line to board for the plane and had to gate check our carry ons. No water served on the flight, and instead the flight attendants were aggressively trying to sell perfume."
Pros: "Cheap before extras. I think I'd rather pay more for better quality airline."
Cons: "I've had three flights with Ryan Air this week and every one has been so unorganized and stressful. The boarding process is slow, and a lot of getting in line and standing for long periods of time. Even with open seats they don't boom groups together (when they book at same time). I assume to get more money to switch but this just leads to masses of people trying to swap seatings during boarding. The landings on all three were rough, I fly a lot and have never had an issue and these landings were concerning. One they came into fast and had to pull up quickly to avoid landing."
Cons: "Last time we flew Ryanair, we did not check-in ahead of time, so we had to pay 53 Euros at the airport. We learned our lesson, so for this flight we checked in ahead of time and had our boarding passes ready on our mobile devices. When we arrived at the airport, we were told we needed a printed ticked so they could stamp it that they had checked our passport. It would be 53 Euros for them to print the ticket. The lady at the ticket counter directed us to the business center to print, but the Ryanair website wasn't working. I eventually printed a poor quality screenshot and hoped for the best. The lady stamped when she checked my passport. Nobody ever checked the stamped ticket beyond that point. What a waste. Ryanair is cheap, of course I'll fly with them again the next time I'm in Europe. My advice to travelers is to do your research and know all the loop holes they use to make money off of you."
Cons: "we didn't know we had to print our tickets and they charged us a big fee to print our own boarding passes at the airport"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "The hard seat backs"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Cons: "The customer service agent was horribly rude. When asked her name, because she wasn't wearing a name tag, she said "Oh, you'd like my name? I'll be sure to write it down for you." I never ended up getting her name, but the way she treated me and my fiancé - as two customers that were very much over paying - was inappropriate and unprofessional. Never again will I fly RyanAir."
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."
Cons: "In order to ride the plane, I have to walk outside. It is very cold."
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: "Nothing. It was all mediocre."
Cons: "You need to serve food or at least water. Airplanes are very dry. It makes you seem like a rip off."
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: "Very good for a low cost."
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: "Friendly staff, arrived on time despite poor boarding protocol."
Cons: "Been invited to board, only to end up waiting in a freezing cold stairwell which lead outside, only to find that nobody from Ryan air had even been on the plane yet. The plane door had never been opened until 10 minutes after we had been waiting in the cold."
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: "boarding was on time and no delays on the tarmac"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They will hit you for more money every chance they get. Checked baggage. Not printing boarding pass prior to getting to the airport."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination albeit somewhat late."
Cons: "Firstly, during check in Ryanair said that I had to have a printed out version of my boarding pass and therefore they would have to charge me 15 Euro to print it out. Isn't this a budget airline? How do people on tight budgets afford this sort of last moment expense? Secondly, there was nothing service-minded about one of the cabin-crew who barked at me for not immediately showing her my boarding pass while boarding the plane (pure impertinence). Thirdly, the seats don't recline so the knees of tall people are hard against the front seats which puts them in an uncomfortable rigid upright position during the flight. Lastly, the flight was late."
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was quick."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks. But I expected that so it was fine."
Pros: "The only thing to like is that it gets you from point A to point B - very low bar."
Cons: "Not that cheap, and it includes nothing. Ends up becoming expensive with all the extras. At checkin I paid extra for priority boarding and no one ever called the priority boarding at the gate. They started general boarding immediately and there were so many people in line already we basically had to approach the counter on the side to ask, and they looked puzzled, like they didn't even know anyone had paid for priority boarding. Thats when they also realized the counter upstairs made a mistake in not stamping our boarding passes after checking our passports, so we had to go elsewhere to have our passports checked again, so ended up boarding late. We checked in online to avoid the €45 charge but didn't have a printer and they wouldn't accept our mobile boarding passes. So the worst part was they wanted to charge us €15 for printing our boarding passes at the airport. Thankfully a kind airport information employee was willing to print them for us. You also have to pay to get a seat assigned if you are traveling with others. A nightmare of an airline."
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: "We arrived to our destinations, and so did our bags. Good! And crew were all friendly."
Cons: "But this budget airline feels so in every sense. Boarding is from Tarmac, even coffee or tea costs checked bag, and weight limits are low, boarding is chaotic, no flight entertainment... By the time we paid for all our bags and did the whole dance of moving items from bag to bag to meet limits, we could have probably picked a better airline and had more comfort. They have a policy to charge for musical instruments, and even though there was space, on our return flight we were forced to check it, which we mostly try to avoid for safety of instrument...the way out no issue, the way back we got a stickler. Overall, for single travelers who don't care where you sit and just have a small bag, go for it. Trying to shoehorn a family of four plus instrument led to several up charges and annoying encounters at airport. I'll avoid next time."
