Cons: "Everything. I was re-routed and never told why."
Pros: "Crew was kind and professional Flight was overall comforable"
Cons: "On my return flight to Athens from London, I was told that my hand luggage was too large and needed to be checked. I had to pay an extra 55 pounds (75 USD) to check the bag. On my Aegean flight to London a few days before, I was able to check the bag for free. I do not understand why I was charged for the bag on the way back but not on the way over. $75 is half what I paid for the flight itself - seems way too much just to check a small bag. I will keep this in mind when considering flying with Aegean in the future."

Pros: "Accurate times"
Cons: "Night travelling"
Pros: "Thanks for everything"

Pros: "Gate staff are able to deal with things"
Cons: "Check-in can't process baggage charges, so they send you off to an office across the airport, just to find that the payment processing office is closed for a couple hours in the late afternoon. Why don't you just set the baggage check in people up to process a credit card transaction?"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service"
Cons: "The other passengers were very loud and obnoxious. During boarding it felt like we were a heard of cattle."
Cons: "boarding took for ever. service from the cabin crew was not good. no entertainment."
Pros: "The overall flight was okay. It wasn't as comfortable compared to other flights I've been on and it's a bit difficult to stow luggage. However, I miss my original connection due to flight delays and I was added to a different find free of charge! Very grateful and thankful for that."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "The fact the passenger behind me needed me to sit up straight so he could eat mad me feel bad. I suppose entertainment is not a big thing nowadays with all the choices we have with smart phone's and tablets, so not so much a big deal. But with space itn is a big deaI. I reclined my seat and Icould feel my seat on top of someone's knees. So i sat up and struggled to sleep. I suppose in a sleepy haste I reclined my seat. I was awaken to a gentleman asking me to sit my chair up so he could put his tray down to eat his dinner. I felt horrible."
Cons: "Chaotic loading typical of Greek airports."
Pros: "They served a meal!"
Pros: "LHR-ATH was all excellent. Good boarding, seats and service."

Pros: "Was functional, did the job"
Cons: "More organization"
Pros: "Nice and clean aircraft nice service"
Cons: "we were charged twice for the exact same flights, date and seats. My husband made the same reservations as I had for both of us three weeks later than my reservation was made. When this was discovered by us I called and was told by two agents that I couldn't get any money back. What a rip off."
Pros: "Very quick ...very nice the airport needs better signage ..not under your control I know but would help"
Cons: "The staff at the counter snd in the booth were great"
Cons: "could not be delayed"
Cons: "I missed my flight because my previous flight was delayed 2.5 hrs"
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "To be going home!"
Cons: "Female crew taking orders then taking ages to ring drinks a d they move on to others instead of finishing what they were doing. Then you're lucky if you get given 1 sugar and no spoon lol."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Pros: "The crew was well trained, kind and receptive. The pilot managed to drive through a storm and even arrive 10 minutes faster after leaving 5 minutes late."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Cons: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Pros: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Cons: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Pros: "What to like? The rudness? The delays? Or the fights on board!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with nearly 2 hrs. Cabin crew were rude made as feel very uncomfortable. This flight as whoke was the worst one I have even been too. Never ever again. BLUE AIR NEEDS TO SORT ALOT OF THINGS BEFORE OFFER SUCH SERVICES"
Cons: "I was unable to check n online (although the process was intitated well earlier than 12 hours prior to departure). The system charged y credit card for a seat reservation and then crashed with an error, both on my phone and laptop browser. When I called at 9:00 am (when their offices are open) to ask for help with what happened, I received no answer other than, "the check in system has just closed. I am unable to help you in any way". I booked another flight with another carrier, and did not take this flight., not do I plan to book with them in the future That being said, it is not the job of the employee to defend a poorly working system. Services need upgrade asap."
Cons: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Cons: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."

Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Clean enough"
Cons: "Charged £60 for hold luggage because the airline’s unstable website wouldn’t allow me to book in advance (£20 extra in the airport). Plane was delayed because they were late allowing passengers to board and missed the runway slot. Seats were uncomfortable - it was an older airframe."
Pros: "Flight Attendants very good"
Cons: "Dusseldorf to Warsaw: Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight out of Dusseldorf (about an hour) - Just before landing, pilot announced all connections would be made - (and even mentioned chicago) - Connecting flight was gone when I arrived at gate, and I was quick in getting to gate from prior flight - next flight caused 5 hour layover in Warsaw Warsaw to Chicago Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight our ot Warsaw (about an hour) - no messaging at gate about reason for delay - kept increasing departure by 5 minute increments; started at 16:40 ended 17:05 (I beleive) - once boarding was complete, pilot said delay was due to wait for connections (boarding was an hour and 15 minutes late). Very frustrated"
Pros: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"
Cons: "The plane seemed very old, toilet in poor condition."
Cons: "7hour delayin onnecting flight! Seats on plane torn and very uncomfortable, meal booked but no food available."
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled for 3 hours later than original departure. Check in opened less than two hours before the rescheduled flight time so everyone was stuck waiting at check-in for hours. We couldnt even go in and relax inside at restaurants or the gate because online check in wasnt available. Then the flight was further delayed with no news about when the new take off would be or why the delay. Finally boarded a tiny plane that had propellers and a loud take off, if you easily fright on planes probably not the best choice for you. And then someone started smoking on the flight and the attendants had to announce again that smoking wasnt allowed. On and off throughout the flight it smelled like someone was smoking so I wonder if it was even coming from the cockpit."
Pros: "Flight was delay by 1 hour consequently my luggage did Ot arrive with me to Katowice on top of that there is no more flights today from waw to kat with lot Airline"
Cons: "Serive to pay extra luggage very very slow"
Pros: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Cons: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Every thing."
Pros: "Very good airport check-in and flight. The Check-in staff were quick and efficient and the Flight Crew were friendly and attentive. It was calm and restful."
Cons: "The internet support. I spent meny hours trying to check-in and upgrade my case allowance from 20kg to 32kg, and failed. When I tried to change the baggage weight to 32kg a charge was added for NOT taking the case PLUS the extra for the 32kg case! The cost of a case is reasonable and I would advise to pay the extra £5 for 32kg for most flights. The on-line Seating Selection is also unreliable, I was seated next to an empty seat which had been showing to be unavailable on-line! A response to my query which I sent to Blue Air arrived when I was in the air on the flight! It only repeated the baggage section of the Confitions document! Thank goodness for the excellent airport check-in staff and the Flight Crew!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled a week before and didn't get a replacement flight. Got half of my money back. Will never book a blue air flight again !"
Pros: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Cons: "Lack of leg room ."
Cons: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."
Pros: "The flight was punctual"
Cons: "I got charged twice for luggage and couldn't get a refund"
Cons: "Rude crew, not organised work , not enough space for legs"
Cons: "I had to make my own way home from Manchester.. plane diverted due weather."
Pros: "Leg room and reclining"
Pros: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Cons: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"
Cons: "The agent lady on the desk did nothing to help us get on our flight. She refused to identify herself. We intend to sue the company for the damages caused to us because of this bad attitude."
Pros: "I recomand to Everyone to use the airlines!!Very good quality"

Pros: "The service was OK, we flew on time and the flight itself was pleasant."
Cons: "The interior of the aircrafts looked old and a bit dirty. The feeling is that you are flying on a poor low cost service."
Pros: "I was surprised and pleased as well that the flight attendant listen to me when I mentioned that it's very cold in the cabin and in less than 30 minutes the temperature was changed and bearable"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Made us run from one end of the airport to the opposite end, because they said they had ‘operational difficulties’, causing them to switch gates between two flights. Total baloney, and completely avoidable."

Pros: "The staff was really nice and on time"
Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "It left on time and the service was reasonable."

Pros: "Crew was informative and tried to help as much as possible"
Cons: "Extended almost 2 hours stuck in a place with a defective AC sensors. Now I understand these things happen. Also it’s admirable the powers that be would rather fix than fly with a questionable part. But shouldn’t this be a maintenance issue and not a wait till it’s broke thing. 3 hours lost is 3 hours lost"
Cons: "no entertainment no food, no snack, no drink scary landing due to strong, gusty wind in Innsbruck"
Cons: "Loud passengers"
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Pros: "All excellent"
Pros: "Appreciate that the situation with the Virgin flight meant that safety checks had to be completed before we could take off. Cabin crew were very chatty, but a free drink or packet if peanuts would have been appreciated. Had a similar delay with a BA flight in June and they gave us a soft drink from the bar as a gesture of goodwill."
Cons: "Once airborne, it would have been good if the pilot could have made up lost time and got us to Malta with less of a delay. Bloke next to me was downing beers and either had a stunning hangover or raging cold. His eyes were bright red and his breath was hideous. Made the whole flight a really unpleasant experience."
Cons: "Just not good enough for business travel. Stick to ahipping holiday makers who have a bit more flexibility on schedules!!"

Pros: "It was nice to land a few minutes ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Having to walk so much to reach the gate"
Cons: "forced to have cabin bag taken away as hold luggage when they ran out of over head space athough it was small enough to fit under seat - very rude Easyjet staff at boarding who did not want to understand situation. thanks to being delayed by hold luggage pick up missed my connecting journey"
Cons: "I found my luggage broken!!!!"
Pros: "Slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Speedy boarding was a joke. We speedy boarded onto a bus and then everyone else got on so there was no real speedy boarding getting on the plane at all. This is the second time this has happened, and I am seriously thinking of not renewing my EasyJet Plus Card because of this."
Cons: "Very tight seating for people who are over 6’ tall."

Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "No sucked"
Pros: "For a short trip it's fine. Price is right, the staff is cheerful, shuttle buses took us to customs very quickly. The bag drop system is very efficient."
Cons: "You know what you get with this airline: no frills, tight spaces, and you board and deplane outdoors (in a downpour in London)."
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, they changed the gate at the last minute I had to run fom One end of the airport to another. The food in the plane was not nice and expensive"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Although I had a child and was at the boarding gate in time,boarding was a free for all. We were also left waiting in a doorway with baby in the cold and with the fumes of the plane. The food was good but although I was on the first few rows with one of the first to request food some of the selections were not available. The fold out tables were also very dirty and the plane was uncomfortably cold"

Cons: "Application instruction on baggage hande king and que to boarding."
Pros: "Courteous crew, polite and knowledge. Just wish they wouldn't talk so fast over the tannoy! :-)"
Cons: "To find a way to enforce people to only put their baggage in the compartments above their own seats. If i choose a front-row seat, I find that other passengers have filled the compartment despite sitting nowhere near the front. Given that you pay the most money for front-row/extra leg room seats..."
Pros: "Flight arrived"
Cons: "Flight left vaguely late, air stewardess disappeared into the cockpit for 50 minutes. Hmm, I wonder what she was doing in the cockpit. Whatever she was doing she wasn’t helping the cart so I only got my food 20 mins before landing approach. Air pressure was weird too, nice American lady next to me had problems with her ears more than usual."
Pros: "The flight arrived ten minutes early at our destination."
Cons: "Extremely small and uncomfortable seats even for a small person."
Pros: "I called flight network and was put on hold for about five minutes, simply to get an answer to the question of the baggage allowance - I didn’t see it anywhere when booking the wiz air ticket. They told me that I was slowed one checked baggage and one cabin baggage that would be charged about €40 if it was over 30 kilos (which it was not). At the airport wizz air said that I had chosen online booking (which I had not) and therefore I had to pay a €30 fee. Also they said I had no checked baggage allowance and was charged an additional €150 !!!!"
Cons: "That I wa given false information that cost me a huge amount of money, And that the booking page does not make it easy to add baggage information."
Cons: "Did not fly. They wanted $100 to check my bag. I flew another airline."
Pros: "I liked how the crew on the plane worked. Very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the tedious boarding process when we were all herded into a very confined space. Also there was a cabin baggage issue that came up that might have been avoided if the new policy would have been made more obvious during the ticket purchase process."
Pros: "Easy to book. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Would be good if there was complementary tea/coffee or water. People might then buy a snack to go with it."

Pros: "Staff was nice and felt bad for their company’s policy."
Cons: "I was charged $45 US dollars to print my boarding pass!!! I’m used to only being able to check in 24 hours before my flight. I found out that I cannot print my boarding pass within 48 hours of my flight. I was monitarily RAPED and will be disputing these charges! Boo on you Wizz Air....aka f*ckwads."
Cons: "You have to inform the customers, that company needs you to have a visa"
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Pros: "There wasn't any delays, perfect landing"
Cons: "Last minute boarding change & overall 1 hr delay"
Cons: "My husband was seated in row 2 and I was seated in row 29, even though there were many spare seats in blocks of two and three that we could have been sat in; then I was forced to put my carryon luggage in the hold, meaning I had to wait ages at the baggage reclaim on arrival, and was late for my air BnB check in. When I booked my flight I deliberately chose not to check any luggage, spent time planning what to take so that it would fit in a carryon bag, and measured out my liquids into small bottles so that they passed the liquids restrictions: all effort and time spent in vain due to Wizz Air. I was furious!"
Pros: "Excellent pilot"
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Plane was late and all passengers had to wait at the gate. Too many people for such a small area for that length of time."
Pros: "Purchased priority boarding for a change which was nice to be able to not have to jump in the queue quickly. Boarding was fine and the crew were very friendly and professional. The extra legroom seats over the wing provided a good extra space."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane was not good, the carpets were fraying and the seats were old and tired. The seats were positioned too upright and there was no option to recline the seat so it was a very straight seat for 2hrs on the flight."
Pros: "Standard service , even was late come almost in time"
Cons: "Was a bit late"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."
Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew are always lovely,very professional,helpful and make us feel welcome"
Cons: "The gate number was displayed and all passengers made their way to the gate were we made to wait for about 30min before passport control took place,no information was provided as to what caused the delay;after the passport control we had to wait again for about 15min.The late take off resulted in me narrowly missing my train home"
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"
Pros: "was on time"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and got you where I wanted"
Cons: "Make sure you queue early if you want to take your hand luggage on board, as if you are too late in the line they will make you check it into the hold at the last minute. I guess I should have realised that by how early people started queueing and the fact that they charge for checked in luggage."
Pros: "I liked that I got to my destination in one piece."
Cons: "The plane was creaky, there was a ton of turbulence, the flight attendants even got nervous which was very disquieting."
Pros: "The staff was fine. We arrived on time."
Cons: "These discount flights from Luton are packed with obnoxious, drunken Brits going on holiday in Hungary. In future, I will fly from Heathrow. Besides, by the time one pays all the little incidental fees at WizzAir, the cost is about the same as the legacy carriers."
Cons: "I wasn't to bucharest because on the phone the laidy said to me i can travel with my driving license because my id was lost and at the gate they stop me i lost all money from ticket plus transport to airport and back you should refound my money this company is the most worst company in the world"
Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"
Pros: "Wizzair suggestion to compensate us"
Cons: "The fact that they didn't notify us regarding the cancellation of the flight, and moved us to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Before bording a man ask me to gollow him to mrsire my bag and let me pau 40 pound because its litle bit biger than he want and let others pass woth biger bag ."
Pros: "NOTHING! !!! VERY POOR wizz air!!"
Cons: "Hi. I don't understand why I have to pay £31.50 for check-in???!! Why nobody send me email with this information? ?!! I fly on the regular basis, first time I have to pay with poor wizz air!! If I know that - I will use Heathrow airport and British Airways for my flight to Riga! "Cheap flights " with wizz air : ticket -£73.00 + check-in £31.50 + coach to Luton £13.00 + coach from Stansted £13.00 + VERY POOR SERVICE! !!! NEVER EVER !!! My last time! !!! I will say to ALL my friends and posted in Facebook, Twitter and Instagramm! !! It's - ROBBERY!!!!!"
Pros: "Facilities are terrible! It was like stepping back in time! To use this as a stopover, is a poor decision because this airport does NOT meet the brief and does NOT warrant being used for passengers. I’ve been very polite here, I have more choice words I could use"
Cons: "Nothing! To learn that Wizz Air ‘allowed’ cabin size is so tiny was really shocking! With All the other budget airlines, easyJet, Monarch & even Ryanair my cabin would’ve been fine. This is the same hand luggage I’ve been using using for many years."
Pros: "Everyone was really friendly and accommodating to my needs"
Cons: "40 minutes late taking off - sitting on the plane"
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Cons: "As Usual always late, left us sitting in a bus on the tarmac for ages in30 deg heat. awful. will never use again"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, friendly airline staff (as friendly as they get, we all know how they have that teflon attitude), OK food, I sat between 2 Bulgarian passengers which were very well behaved, one screaming baby nearby (as there always is) and no-one playing football with the back of my seat all the flight (you know who you are - hope someone does it to you), and no-one fidgeting all flight so all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Bit slow in opening the gate for people to get on. They expect to cram you like sardines on a hot staircase with no where to go when there is other people being checked in to board behind you, really stupid and possibly sadistic."
Pros: "Cost was ok but you get into the trap where every turn is a cost option. The cost can climb to the point where other scheduled flights compete."
Cons: "The web site is laborious. Checking in was 48hrs prior and frankly you should be able to choose what remaining seats are available as a no cost option. You can choose prior to the 48hrs at cost (i was never given option on a 3rd party site when i booked!) Checking in should be longer than 3 hrs! Because if you book a exec lounge which is air side you lose 1.5 hrs as a minimum in the process of checking in luggage and security checks. Lose .5 hr+ to go to gate and you get 1hr only when you pay for 3 hrs! Where is the sense in that? Its miss-selling at its worst as everyone is complicit. Flight left 20min late for no apparent reason Seats are a bit stone age and hard although only a short flight my ar*e went to sleep before I could"

Pros: "No food or entertainment on this flight,"
Cons: "I found the luggage allowance confusing"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
Pros: "The weather was nice."
Cons: "The boarding was announced 30 minutes before the beginning of the procedure. All the passengers were standing in the queue, without any possibilities to sit down. At Luton there is no connection among the announcements and the actual status of the boarding of a particular plane."
Pros: "I like the bubbly upbeat attitude of the flight attendants interacting excellently in English and other languages and also how they dealt with an angry passenger."
Pros: "Nothing at all... They were unfriendly and I missed my flight because of them. Lot money and time is gone"
Cons: "How they organized everything in this day!!!! 4th of July 2017 TERRIBLY Terrible"
Pros: "Nice new plane and caught up time even though it was late leaving left Luton late"

Cons: "Poor service and delays!"
Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "Waiting in hallway and then tarmac to board."
Pros: "There wasn't anything I enjoyed about this particular flight"

Pros: "Humor of the pilot"
Cons: "One hour delay, which we had to be in the plane, and was VERY hot inside, like 35C+ and more. Total inappropriate. Noise from passengers. Tight places between seats in front of me and me. Tight places on seats between me and next passenger next to me. FastTrack was not so fast, didn't felt it is something special and priority for me and my wife. Had to wait with the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
Pros: "The crew and the pilots were very nice!!"
Cons: "The sitting politics, and the selling system."

Cons: "Check in, crowds, cramped seats"
Cons: "My bag is a standard bag that fits on every 737-800 and they made me check it to collect the extra charge. Very shady."
Pros: "Kept informed"
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for two hours, and being asked to pay for a bottle of water"
Pros: "I really appreciated receiving one on one attention to check in on my health status as well as some sparkling water to settle my stomach, and having a bag for nausea. They were incredibly adept at dealing with a potentially sick passenger, and got me a wheelchair to depart the plane."
Cons: "Crew was inconsistent. One allowed bigger cabin luggage and some are overly strict. Our luggage was within their requirement but required us to pay, 120 euros for 2 small cabin luggage. Get extra extra small cabin luggage if you decide to fly with RyanAir. They are unfair and rude!"
Cons: "Needs better AC and to be more organized."
Cons: "Rude crew... chaotic at airport... upswell on everything make it expensive not cheap flight"
Pros: "Everything, price, knowledge, clean planes, great customer service"
Pros: "If you're from America, the carry on luggage is a whole different ball game. Dont think you bag will fit, they are going to hit you with fees."

Cons: "Bad customer service."
Cons: "I'd rather pay more to have a more relaxed experience."
Pros: "I liked that the plane was boarded from the front and the back. I liked that you could check in weeks in advance. I had no issues pre-paying for luggage - just had to figure out what I was taking."
Cons: "There was no food... literally felt like a store on wheels. They just went up and down aisle to sell their wares."
Pros: "Very good nothing bad"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "Tight seating."
Cons: "Very small print: if you don't check in, you get fined"

Cons: "Awful checkin staff"
Cons: "over charged the amount for luggage by almost 100% than promised. absolutely chaotic operation and staffs. not a bit concerned about customers needs or comforts."
Cons: "The strictness of the company's policy for carry on luggage is absurd and the price you have to pay to check a carry on size luggage is ridiculous. One of my least favorite airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"
Pros: "nothing really. the price was ok."
Cons: "the service, the seating, all the added fees"
Pros: "The crew"

Pros: "Nothing. Do not fly. They are horrible and have horrible service."

Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "Nothing , I travel with Ryanair because of the Cheap price"
