Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "not really"
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Cons: "Had to check prophylacticly my roller bag, even though flight wasn't full—"
Cons: "Delay of a half hour."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot took off and landed very well and I got completely drink and food. I will fly again. Thanks"
Cons: "It’s a bit cheeky because I know all airlines do it. But to bring a case included in the price and less hand luggage would be great. Having said that the hand luggage is very generous and I managed a full week in Ibiza with hand luggage. Thanks"
Pros: "Offer of small meal."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour. Asked to check in bag as full flight"
Pros: "The stewards were very nice and professional!"
Cons: "From my point of view, everything was just right. Loved it."
Pros: "The Flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The gate could have actually showed our flight which it did not. Someone could have communicated that the flight was delayed instead of saying final call on the boards. Overall it was very confusing and no staff was present to assist. In the end we were 2 hours late."
Cons: "Be on time so we dont miss our connection"
Pros: "Flight and on board service was fine"
Cons: "It is not acceptable when arriving at the recommended time, at a major airport, with a major airline, to find no desks open. We checked in online but our passes “could not be issued”. There were no self service terminals so we stood waiting an hour. Staff were sitting idly but not serving customers."
Pros: "Nice, remember usb charger cord & earbuds."
Pros: "More legroom comes as standard, compared to competitor airlines on the same route with the same aircraft"
Cons: "The interior of the plane is a little bit tatty"
Pros: "I like every single thing staff was kindly, smiley and helpful. Check in easy, I liked very much our pop corn and Fanta complimentary offer as also our quick trip. Landing smoothly and nicely"
Cons: "there was nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "choice of snacks, unfriendly staff"
Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"
Pros: "The crew is always incredible"
Cons: "When you buy business you expect the quick boarding etc. Boarding group 1 and 2 together created a mess"
Pros: "I think I may have had more room in the seat on this little plane than when I crossed the ocean. Also the window seemed bigger. Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Easy check in online , E tickets - only took hand luggage so no long queues ! Flew both ways with BA - food was very good and drinks included so happy travellers"
Cons: "Nothing on this trip ! Only reduced *** for entertainment because short flight so no entertainment"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "Nothing good to say about BA"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour from NICE and connection at Manchester was badly handled by BA and missed connection. With no refund or hotel or alternate flight offered. Total failure. Am now stuck. And very upset"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, staff was delightful, flight was early arrival, everything was super."
Cons: "We arrived with 3 hours before our flight, as recommend for International travel. But we were not allowed to check our bags until 9:50 AM. We waited on line for almost 2 hours! If we had been told of this restriction we could have gone to a lounge to relax. Instead we waited a long time on foot."
Pros: "Stuff happens outside of the company's control and the inbound flight was an hour late due to crew absence. We were kept informed along the way and we boarded 55 minutes later than expected. However I couldn't have wanted for a better inflight service. Charming helpful and effective."
Cons: "Having to wait for the delayed flight."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "There were no gluten-free food options, not even an apple, so no food for us."
Pros: "What a superb service! Impeccable staff, free meal and alcoholic drink, larger seats, excellent flight! Couldn't ask for more"
Pros: "Better than Ryanair/easyjet but then again. That’s nothing to write home about"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours. The plane was old dirty and stinky. I paid last minute for my flight so it was a lot more than usual so I feel ripped off because of the poor quality"
Cons: "I missed the flight not because of me, but the confusion information that a staff gave it to me."
Cons: "BA has a problem with one of the doors. Chaos."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and boarding was completely stress free. Myself and my partner checked in online with ease and were at our gates efficiently upon departure and return"
Cons: "Our flights were delayed 3 hours and 20 and although we were compensated for lunch at the airport, when handing out refreshments onboard we were completely missed out. Also pretty annoyed to find that we could only use the lunch vouchers in a hand full of the bars and restaurants."
Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."
Pros: "Aircraft was excellent LCY is very convenient Price was very competitive for most trips"
Cons: "BA is BA, Better than low cost guys but not LH Sometimes prices are high, with coach being higher than Club."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. On time, clean aircraft and professional."
Cons: "But the food policy is a joke. They wouldn’t give us anything, including water without buying it. I had no local currency and was waiting until I landed to use the ATM. When flying, people need water."
Pros: "The Service, with smile, awesome service. Very British!"
Cons: "THE BACK FIRST TOOK MY MONEY, THEN MY FULL PASSPORT DETAILS AND THEN DENIED ME FLYING BECAUSE THEY PUT MY SURNAME TWICE ON THE BOARDING PASS. THEY ARE ALWAYS WIN. I AM OUT OF POCKET FOR £170 AND DELAYED BY 2.5 HOURS. THIS IS THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY - BY CHEATING ON PASSENGERS."
Pros: "How do you be a full service airline and charge for check in bag. I had no way provided to prepay for a bag resulting in getting charged £60 at the airport. This notwithstanding trying to explain how your website failed me."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian entre and also ran out of snacks, so I was very hungry and had no options."
Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."
Pros: "Ease of checking in and getting to departure gate at London City Airport."
Cons: "No food or drink on flight for normal travellers."
Cons: "Bad service, messed up booking, change me to the last row at boarding, I can keep going"
Pros: "Service good on board"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"
Pros: "I understand and appreciate not being able to land in Florence due to conditions and safety, and they were able to give us the closest Pisa airport."
Cons: "They kind of left us stranded in PiSA. Promised bus that didnt happen. We had to pay out of pocket 12euros each to Florence bus station, then pay another 6euros from bus station to florence airport. PAIN! Did not get to our AirBNB at tuscany until 21:30 instead of 14:00! Would be niced to get reim for all 8 members in our party!"
Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."
Pros: "All was OK"
Pros: "Free food and drink remains on City flights. Convenience of City."
Cons: "Long flight. No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarded on Time"
Cons: "Flight took off but the plane was faulty. We landed an hour after take off waited in a room with no air conditioning for over an hour with no updates. After 3 hours after the flight was supposed to leave they cancelled the flight. Very poor and very disappointed!"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome!"
Cons: "They were 25 min late landing. Even though we were taking the same plan from London City to Glasgow, we had to get off and go through customs and reboard, all in 5 min. They knew we had to do that and they almost took off without us and a few others in the same position. Then the stewardesses acted like we caused them to take off late to Glasgow....really rude."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "There was a special needs boy that sat behind me and he had some issues (long flight, understandable) and the crew were AMAZING with him. Not everyone has common or even human decency. These people were rad, and it was lovely to see."
Cons: "We went to Gatwick(75.00 Uber) to reschedule in person and we were told there were no refunds and if we wanted to change it would be 250 pounds. It is my wife’s and my 35 year anniversary and this wants a mood dampener"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and addressed the crew and passengers multiple times with updates."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"
Pros: "For the most part the people and workers were very nice"
Cons: "Couldn’t add baggage with the ticket bought online. Once I did it cost $100 to add 1 bag. Checking in process was the worst, as many kiosks didn’t work and the software seemed buggy."
Cons: "Constantly late! Unreliable and missed my connecting flight, AGAIN!!! 4 out of last 10 flights I have had lost luggage. No apology, it’s “just BA”."
Pros: "BAc- great brand and very professional."
Cons: "Nothing for me"
Pros: "Fab flight in every way"
Cons: "Transit time should be calculated reasonably."
Pros: "Flight screens showed info"
Cons: "Bring back free food ba"
Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Cons: "The connection was not good too little time between flights also the American Airlines desk was hidden. We had to get boarding passes at the exit gate. There should have been a rep to guide passengers to desk."
Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was left at Heathrow. It arrived on the next flight so it turned out ok but was stressful for an hour."
Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."
Pros: "The seat was fine. the flight was as expected."
Cons: "expectation that one will fly with only one carry-on bag and not receive any food or beverage during the flight. industry trend is ridiculous ..."
Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."
Pros: "Crew was mostly kind and helpful. My bags arrived at their final destination."
Cons: "I was told that I had to check my bag because it would not fit in the overhead bin. When I got on the plane I found that the overhead bins were ample sized for my hiking pack. I know that British Airways has a policy regarding bags in overhead bins that basically says 'if you cannot lift your bag into the overhead bin un-assisted, you must check your bag.' My husband and I are both experienced hikers, we lifted our packs unassisted on the last plane, yet they forced us to check our bags. I'm glad our bags made it to the UK, but this is literally the first time I've checked a bag and had it arrive. Also, the boarding passes sent to me on my phone were rejected by almost every security/boarding check. This is after BA supposedly fixed their error with the previous boarding passes. Overall not pleased with the experience but glad I paid under $300 for my ticket."
Cons: "Everything was sub par with BA. We upgraded to world traveler plus and the seats were old, there was trash from the previous flight and the tv screens were from 1995. The movies are only on loop so when you take off and are finally allowed to turn on the tv, the movies are 25 minutes in. All around a waste of money. Will never fly BA AGAIN!!"
Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."
Cons: "As requested checked my bag in and it took an absolute age to get my bag in Edinburgh. I ordered a toastie it was lukewarm"
Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Boarded on a bus"
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable enough seats"
Cons: "Not even drinks were served"
Pros: "Staff at Heathrow was professional and efficient. Staff on board was professional and friendly as well."
Cons: "could not even get water to drink without purchasing"
Pros: "The best ever and a flew crew that understands hospital."
Cons: "Movies were second rate"
Pros: "Even on a short flight, you can feel a difference with the crew. This one was very good."
Cons: "security in Heathrow was AWFUL. There was only ONE person working to screen luggage AND check luggage that was questionable. There wee 15 people waiting for luggage who almost missed their connections. I sprinted through the airport and made my connection with 2 minutes to spare."
Cons: "No hay entretenimiento"
Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"
Pros: "Seating was roomier and much more comfortable. More leg room."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks."
Pros: "It left on time."
Cons: "It was American airlines not BA. British airways never sent our bags on our flight leaving Gatwick. We got our luggage 2 days later."
Cons: "Did not get the seats I paid for"
Pros: "Was not made aware of baggage policy. Their regular policy allows one checked baggage but not our ticket. Was not prompted when doing online check in and led to me paying almost 200 pounds for luggage. Just ridiculous!"
Cons: "Baggage policy not clear - good way to force customers to pay more and help their revenue!"
Pros: "Boarding was straight forward with the automated scanning of boarding pass."
Cons: "I was totally taken aback that I had to pay for tea and coffee. After having to pay for baggage and to reserve my seat for the flight. At least beverages could have been offered at no additional cost. Very disappointed with BA."
Pros: "The 1 hr flight"
Cons: "They charged 3.50£ for tea"
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "No indication given of delay. kayak knew before ground staff. On arrival parked at cargo terminal and had to get bus. Then stuck on bus for 10 minutes as could not get terminal fooors open. They turned heating up at full blast with no air. Surprised nobody passed out"
Pros: "I was travelling alone with a baby and a toddler and found most of the staff very helpful - stowing my bags, helping to carry my buggy, helping with seat belts etc."
Cons: "A member of staff at the gate referred to my 2 year old daughter as "a difficult child" to another member of staff because she didn't like having her photo taken. I felt it was very rude and unfair, particularly as I had to lift her to an awkward height (whilst also holding a baby) as the camera was in a fixed position. It was clear the staff member didn't have children herself!"
Pros: "I received an email cancelling the flight before I left home."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation of the flight by BA meant I was unable to attend the event I was booked on. Have found service has definitely declined on recent BA flights I've travelled on. Check in staff are good though."
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew helpful."
Cons: "More than an hour late in taking off, and the food is almost inedible - get the Air Canada chef on board!"
Pros: "Slept most of the way. Cabin looked new, so that was nice."
Cons: "Having to gate check my bag even though it fit in the overhead bin."
Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."
Pros: "Nothing. At. All."
Cons: "This was a nightmare. BA had no flights available to Edinburgh. Booked on 3 separate flights at 2 different airports. Last one was canceled outright. After being awake for 28 hours and traveling for 15, we finally were given a hotel room for the night in London. Still trying to get to Edinburgh."
Pros: "The staff handled everything really well. Continuously being updated to the delay reasons."
Cons: "Being stuck on a plane on the tarmac for 2+ hours, before being moved to a corridor, and then a bus, and then boarding a new plane. No information about delay compensation or refunds being given. No provisions for providing food or drinks for the toddlers/babies/children that had been kept on the plane for a couple of hours."
Pros: "That we got home"
Cons: "It was 2 hours late which meant we missed our train and got home 4 hours late"
Pros: "I was expecting EasyJet to run late and the crew to be overworked and rude, but they were like Southwest Airlines in the USA, very nice and on-time."
Cons: "This applies to all airlines: crack down on travelers trying to bring to much cabin luggage! Also, travelers should have to first use the bin space above their seat before using some other bin space. Many people in the back of plane cram their cabin luggage into the first bins they see so they don't have to carry it from the back."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, despite the fact that they didn't recline."
Cons: "We waited in cues repeatedly waiting to board. The check in crew kept separating people into different lines (unknown reasons). We were not told that the plane was late until after departure time. (by then, we had figured it out)."
Pros: "I landed alive"
Cons: "No information about the gate until you have tk run across the airport to board"
Cons: "Nothing, the price is great and I would take a cheaper price for the flight over free drinks and food anyday"
Pros: "Crew were lovely and happy and kept us abreast of the problems that caused a delay in departure."
Pros: "Receiving updates about delays"
Cons: "The flight could have left on time"
Cons: "Free refreshments"
Cons: "It could have been on time"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Border control at EDI. Lanes too long"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed which meant I was over an hour late for my connecting travel. Delay kept increasing as I was waiting at Luton airport."
Pros: "Pilot got us there in less than an hour after a three hour delay"
Cons: "Three hour delay with no explanation until we were actually on the flight. Only a £3 refreshment voucher. Couldn't hear cabin crew and they rushed through the food service. Looked like they didn't want to be there."
Pros: "Staff were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and ended up parked so far from terminal, not the best for a late flight. The new smal airbus was cramped legroom wise, I had hoped for an improvement over 737"
Pros: "Not much. I think anything we liked was about the airport staff, not the easy jet staff. The customer service lady was efficient, but not helpful and kind of rude and all she kept saying was “well everyone else made it”. The plane was also not full (I believe she said 60 people, maybe 58 not including us)."
Cons: "The plane was departing at 8:25 and boarding at 7:55 according to the ticket. At 7:57 there was no gate announced for the flight yet, so we went to the bathroom, came out and saw our gate and headed there. We got the gate wrong, but were only about 5 mins out of the way, so me and my 70 year old grandmother ran through the terminals and we got to the correct gate at 8:16 (less than 20 minutes from the time the gate was announced) and they would not let us on. Easy Jet’s policy (which we have a picture of) is that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure, but we did not even have a gate until less than 20 minutes from the departure. We did not hear them announce our names or last call (until the minute before we got there, and it did not seem like if they would have let us on if we were one minute earlier either). After this whole ordeal and being at the airport on time and through security in time, we went to talk to the check-in person to see what we should do. We stood in line and did not get called up (3 people did not have customers but were not calling me up), so I asked and one girl reluctantly said I could see her. As I was telling her what happened, she got a phone call, answered it in the middle of my explanation, and then chatted for a few minutes with another coworker about who was working and who was going on lunch when. After she hung up, she looked annoyed at me, and I told her again what happened, and she said she could help and to go to customer service. At customer service, we asked to see if we could get on the next flight which wasn’t leaving for over 7.5 hours, which they said we could but would have to purchase our tickets and luggage all over again. The person working was mostly professional, fairly efficient, but pretty callous overall. On top of all this, when they pulled our luggage off the flight (somehow they can board a flight of 60 ish people and still have time to remove our luggage), they pulled one of the wrong suitcases off so we had to go collect our luggage at or destination, and someone else went luggage-less. Ultimately, my grandmother’s first European trip and this was the worst experience we’ve had so far, but after $200, 6 hours, and tears from both of us, we made it to our destination and will never fly Easy Jet again."

Pros: "The ease of journey."
Pros: "Was inexpensive. Very friendly staff. Easy trip"
Pros: "Good value for money. As expected"
Cons: "Bag drop staff rude."
Pros: "Staff were good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of rubbish on a stairway that no one removed. Totally ridiculous."
Cons: "Their check in system is not clear.. We have a reservation for 2 passengers, and in the system I paid for an extra luggage... considering the price I paid I didnt realize that that was only an extra piece only for one passenger, so we had to pay 57 euros for the additional piece of the second passenger at the counter... considering the total ticket for 2 passenger was 120 euros, that increased the total price for almost 50%... Not even in Mexico the ticket for these kind of low budget airlines are so confuse and "tricky"."

Pros: "Got from A to B, no fuss about bag sizes - symptomatic of them needing us to board quickly perhaps?"
Cons: "1.5 Hours late; a typical delay with easyJet No real apologies offer of refreshment vouchers, although there was regular updates provided Pilot interrupted sleeping cabin halfway through - at about midnight - with long update On Departure and arrival plane was located away from gate and the bus journey seemed to take an eternity - in Edinburgh in particular"
Cons: "Landed 3 hours late"
Cons: "They didn't confirm the delay - only said it was estimated meaning while we could have come to the airport at a later time given the delay they made us come at the time required for the original flight. For a three hour delay thy gave us a 3GBP voucher. I will be fighting for compensation but am appalled by their service"
