Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was ok and the seat was a bit uncomfortable. I am over 6 feet so I always have a bit of a problem with the seat"
Pros: "safe trip"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, would like to be aware no food"
Cons: "Plugs to charge devices"
Cons: "No meals served, and no beverages, unless you are willing to pay inflated prices for garbage. They will give you tap water if you ask, and that's that. I still find this approach despicable and unnecessarily stingy, especially since this is BA, not a lowcost."
Cons: "We had to beg for one cup of water on a 3 & 1/2 flight. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Checking, boarding and overall experience"
Pros: "Crew members were all very nice"

Cons: "Not even a complimentary cup of coffee or tea, just tap water."
Cons: "The equipment was old and didn't seem to be well maintained. And they did not offer even a glass of water on a 3 and a half hour flight. Even water was on sale!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Plane smelled bad. Had to pay for food. Not even water was included. Inside the plane is worn and needs upgrades."

Pros: "it got there"
Cons: "how it got there"
Cons: "The unpleasant unhelpful staff"
Pros: "Somehow we board first than everyone else. It left and arrived on time. Friendly service."
Cons: "food was not offered you had pay. to eat which in my opinion is not proper at least a sandwich should be offered,"
Pros: "More modern plane."
Cons: "No snacks, no food, 1 drink. Aegaen airlines gave good from Spain to Athens and back, for a lot less ticket flight."
Pros: "I liked your entertainment , movies, series lots to choose from."
Cons: "Your crew was horrible, I had assistance but they seemed bothered in helping me to help me get to my seat... I pity those who might assistance with that crew on future flights... Hopefully they will get the nicer crew from NY to London they were amazing."

Cons: "Disgusted that they wanted to charger £11 pp to change seat at check-in 24hrs prior to the flight!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Is this really the British Airways business class within Europe? What a disappointment. Felt like I was in economy except the only difference was I got my drink served in glass rather than plastic. Why don't you get some tips from Emirates considering from Abu Dhabi to Doha you had 10"+ tvs infront of you, tons of leg room and actually good food offerings."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Heathrow is huge and our gate changed during the last hour with out announcement until 35 minutes before the flight. There was a 2nd flight flying at the same time from a different gate with the same flight # with simply an A added which was very confusing."
Cons: "Absolutely no food and we were charged for a soda... seriously? It took the WIFI 5 minutes to process the 1.75 sale. Are you kidding BA? Flight attend were indifferent to passengers and actually held their chlorine with the foolish shopping cart when we tried to make it to the rest room. Unpleasant at best. Oh, and there was no entertainment at all on the 767 we had unless you count the magazine. Sorry BA, you have some work to do."
Cons: "Checking into Heathrow was interesting because they have automated systems to bag drop. I always like talking to a person which I could have done but was unaware. I had printed my boarding passes which then was sent to the automated line. That being said I had an issue with my carry on it was a literally too big because of the handle sticking out. So I had to check it. One of the women there was kind and sent met back to the British Airways check in section again to check it. She said don't worry it'll be free. So I went to the assigned line and a woman stopped me and told me I needed to stand with the rest of the people in the checked baggage line not the hand baggage line. I said I was sent to this line. She said well you're going to have to pay if it is too big. I said I was sent to this line because I was told it would be free to check it. Her attitude/tone was rude. Which for me was not ok. I had just landed in Heathrow from Newark and was starting jet lag, plus I literally was able to carry on my bag at Newark. Same company! I was trying my best to be kind but she just kept insisting that I was going to pay for the bag. I then stated that I already had paid for the bag! As I had paid for 4 and only checked 3! So if necessary this would be the 4th bag. Now I would not have had to do this if British Airways had allowed me to tack on my Athens trip to my Heathrow trip. When I found out they could do that they said it would be an extra $1025 to do so. I told them that I would just go through customs and get my bags and put them on the Athens flight. Of course I get to the counter and the woman there was wonderful and told me not to worry that it would be taken care of. So thank you to the woman who diverged a ridiculous argument over the handle not fitting in the cage. Moving forward boarding was interesting as I have never ridden in a train that takes you to the plane on the tarmac. It was a little long and VERY hot as they fill them to the brim and it was a good 10 min ride with people packed like sardines. When we got to the plane boarding was quick and efficient. The seating in that plane was very much like a spirit flight for close to 4 hours. There was a lot of turbulence and the landing was a little hard but that's to be expected in planes."
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."
Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."
Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."
Cons: "I think it's a real shame that BA have gone budget and no longer offer complimentary food on their shorter haul flights. At least they're using M&S though."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."
Cons: "No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced"
Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Movie started too late so there wasn't time to finish"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Only accept credit cards on board."
Pros: "Quick flight. Nice crew"
Cons: "The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."
Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Cabin was shoddy. New beverage service!"
Pros: "Food awful no entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was so somth"
Cons: "The crow service was so bad"
Pros: "The payment system was down so it was painful and slow"
Pros: "The crew was the best we've experienced in years of travel."
Cons: "Non-reclining seats were less comfortable than most."
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"
Pros: "All excellent"
Pros: "On time good service Barry Pope"
Pros: "Everything went well, got on plane quickly and had room for case above."
Cons: "I missed this flight because my Norwegian flight from Oakland to Gatwick was delayed"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Delay in boarding for no explained reason"
Pros: "Easy flight conditions"
Cons: "Limited space for long legs"
Pros: "Daniel the long stay car park bus driver a real gem. he told us where he would drop us off, to ask anything we did not know ( that is if we knew we did not know) and best of all he told us were to find the pick up point when we returned."
Cons: "I did not like going to the long stay carpark north terminal it adds quite a few additional minutes on my journey, I usually use the LtP in south terminal . Also very few spaces left in zone Z even at 6 am!!! I only had hand luggage and I could not see any escalators so I had to wait for lift which was daft. Then as I had already checked in had to ask where to go next...."
Cons: "1.5 delay caused by bad management of technical and crew issues. Poor close to inexistent communication/updates. Rude staff (one in particular)."
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Speedy boarding was shambles"
Pros: "It's easyjet so no expectations really"

Cons: "The guy at boarding was rude. The plane was delayed by 80mins, where we just sat on the tarmac."
Cons: "Overbooked flight"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "We waited 1.5 hour in the plane. They didn't even offer a glass of water. Also, they didn't let us take our luggage with us and when we went in there was a lot of space available in the cupboards above the seats."
Pros: "The stewards did a great job"
Cons: "That we had to wait on the plane for an hour on the Tarmac before taking off ."
Pros: "Quick simple process"
Cons: "Not very comfortable."
Cons: "Slow buses and delays getting on and off. Flight delayed by 30minutes. Luggage took an age to arrive"

Pros: "the ticket fare is very reasonable."
Cons: "flight departure not on time."
Pros: "Liked? Price. Most staff helpful."
Cons: "Hectic 'security' check of cabin stuff. Lots of stairs at Marseille between aircraft & terminals"
Pros: "Not much it was cheap"
Cons: "Seems poor maitainane on the planes Delay on return resulted in arrival time after public transport had closed down and the chance of recovering additional costs seems remote Won't be travelling Easyjet for a long time"
Pros: "Not a whole lot to be honest. Was an okay flight, attendants were good though"
Cons: "The useless bus at ZRH to take us to the terminal because easyJet couldn't be bothered to pay to go direct to the terminal. #speedyboarding"
Pros: "It's nice to have some snacks and food available"
Cons: "There was no fresh food available that didn't have milk or meat. That is, nothing for those who don't eat animal products. Only peanuts, pot noodles, etc."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was canceled the information about the new flight was poor"
Pros: "Absolutely no information given by airline staff or airport staff."
Pros: "We had 2 hours and 45 mins delay due to technical issues as they had to change 3 aircrafts before we start boarding..."
Pros: "Good all round."
Pros: "Everyone can has to put liquids and cream into a small bag, which is so unreasonable. All my liquids are less than 100ml, they forced me to throw many things away! I never had any flight experience like this before!"
Pros: "Price, route, ease of check in. The self luggage check in at gatwick really a must in the upcoming modern airports"
Pros: "Price was very good"
Cons: "Flying to London and back both flights were delayed by over an hour, which was quite annoying."
Cons: "very long delay with no real reason given"
Pros: "on time, flight comfortable, super fast to exit airport after landing."
Cons: "Flight left super early. It didn't really seem that Gatwick processes passengers this early: - not many baggage drops open, long wait. - boarding of plain very disorderly. Stuck standing on air gate for sometime. Hadn't loaded disabled passengers first. It was hard for them to get through as other passengers allowed onto air gate."
Pros: "Staff was fine."
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late no one informed on Boarding counter only was saying it is 10 min late, then end up sitting in plane for 2 hours in hot humid condition no air con put on. For courtesy didn't offer any refreshment. Disappointing."
Cons: "Our return flight on Sunday evening from London Gatwick to Edinburgh was cancelled without any clear explanation. Customer service thereafter was poor."
Cons: "Two flights to Palma de Mallorca this week for two of us. Wednesday and Friday at the same time from Gatwick. Both late by exactly the same time but for different "reasons". Odd and annoying."
Pros: "Al went well - no props - arrival in time."
Pros: "Actual flight good and crew very friendly"
Cons: "Auto baggage check in appalling g and staff there to help - one was very rude but all did not have any solutions to practically anyone that had a problem and that was mist who we wotnessed"
Cons: "Easy jest sold me ticket when wasn't sure they will have enough seats.after spending 3 hours to get to the airport and pass check in and security i have been told right on the front of the plane that there is no seat for me. They offered me next day flight from Luton when my original one was from Gatwick! They even didn't want to make refund and wanted to give me flight voucher.pleased after they have been told i will make a post in social media they made the refund. Never ever with Easyjet.no mayer how much will cost me!!!! Shame on you Easyjet!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and rescheduled the next day Poor communication while waiting (17:35 flight, announced cancelled at 21:00, kept waiting at the gate for further instruction till 23:00) Awful experience with my 3 young kids"
Pros: "It was convenient"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "2 hour delay, massive queues, long wait for expensive service on plane, cramped seats"
Pros: "The Price"
Cons: "Once again a 2 hour delay. my last 4 flights have been delayed. Love the price but on time is also important. Time i looked elsewhere. I fly to and from Malaga every three weeks."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "In my opinion there was a total lack of information from staff to staff and from staff to customers."
Pros: "Learning that I shall NEVER fly EasyJet again Cabin crew lent me a pen and were helpful with food, which wasn't bad. But see (3) to the right"
Cons: "DifficultJet 1) At the gate, a surly man insisted overhead lockers were full when they turned out NOT to be when I arrived as almost the last person on the plane. As a result of this misinformation, my bag was put in the hold, delaying me a great deal on arrival in Lisbon. No apology was offered. When I asked for an explanation, he refused to give one and looked pleased that he had not done so. 2) Use of the rudest, clearly untrained and subcontracted ground staff I have ever met. Incredible performance by Menzies Aviation. When I tried to take my correctly sized bag to the cabin, a man about 40 years my junior accosted me. I tried to explain what had happened, and he interrupted me. When I said I would write to Caroline McCall (EasyJet CEO), he immediately told me to do so and arrogantly offered to give me his name. Yet he does not even work for EasyJet, but for Menzies. When I asked him not to tell me what to do, he replied that I was very rude. Yet at no time had I swore or raised my voice. He later repeated, gratuitously, this accusation, in a threatening manner. QUITE EXTRAORDINARY attitude to customer service, the idea that the customer is always right, etc. It appears that passengers are there to do Menzies a favour 3) Mangled English announcements over the intercom. Bored voice, running through information like a racing commentator, so one could not make any of it out. DISGRACEFUL CONDESCENSION TO PASSENGERS"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "The plane was 2Hrs late but this happens sometimes. Got there eventually all safe and sound"
Cons: "Having fully boarded the plane, and with no prior indication at all, it was then announced that we wouldn't be leaving for another 2 1/2 hours because of an air traffic control strike in Italy. Instead of allowing us to stay in the terminal, we sat in tiny seats for longer than the flight itself was scheduled to be, with no offer of any refreshments. The pilot who made the announcement made it seem like a minor inconvenience and got the times wrong twice. Of course the strike isn't their fault but their handling of it couldn't have been worse."
Cons: "The space between the seats are to small"
Cons: "Flighr cancel because of the stricke, and easy jet didn't tell us before with the mail. I am really upset and its The last time i take easy jet"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
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."
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."
Cons: "2 hrs late and we missed all our following connections as a result."
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"
Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."
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: "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."
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"
Cons: "Crampt seats, mob to board the plane, hour delay with no reason given."
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: "Brand new planes - on board crew was pleasant and the flights were smooth and on time."
Cons: "Ridiculous size restrictions on carry-on. If you can pack your clothes in a wallet, then you should be able to carry on at no cost. Only the smallest of bags will meet the "free" requirement. Website is awful to attempt to online check in. Crazy that they charge for check in at the airport if you cannot get their site to work. Customer service phone call also costs a quid a minute. It's almost as if they are proud that they screw you if you encounter any difficulty or you've made a mistake in the complicated boarding pass emailing procedure."
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: "Left late"
Pros: "Transparent fare, no frills and punctual."
Cons: "Hideous seats - seat backs don't decline which, combined with minimal legroom (even in "premium" section"), makes for a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Priority members get to jump queues when boarding."
Cons: "Long queues for boarding for non-priority members"
Cons: "Poor service and delays!"
Pros: "There wasn't anything I enjoyed about this particular flight"
Cons: "It was too hot, 2 hours on tarmac before we finally took off. Saw passengers luggage sitting in the pouring rain with no cover over them. Water was 4 euro!"
Cons: "Lateness and the waiting in the area to board with about 6 other flights in a small area with confusing announcements"
Pros: "All is great. Just tired after a long day...."
Pros: "Airport OK. Efficient service. On time arrival."
Cons: "Gate area bit narrow and clumsy. Walk to plane. Deposit your own bag on large trolley outside plane due to opportunistic charging policy of RyanAir. Seat basic no recline. No seat pockets. No wifi. Still paying £200 return.."
Pros: "we did not receive the boading check in pass even we did an online check in and end up we have to pay 55pounds extra"
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
Pros: "very friendly cabin crew..... went above and beyond when i needed some assistance highly recommend and will definitely be flying Ryan air again"
Pros: "Kept informed"
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for two hours, and being asked to pay for a bottle of water"
Pros: "All good - typical Ryanair - on time , comfortable , good crew , no frills - perfect price"
Cons: "Nothing !"
Pros: "The crew were really friendly and helpful. It was painless, quick, and easy :)"
Pros: "Reasonable seat space, good crew"
Cons: "If we must have random allocated seats and be separated could it be at least boarding on same door. I use my Ryanair app for both of us for check in and it makes boarding chaotic when one is in front and the other at the back"
Pros: "It was very speedy and the crew were helpful, it was value for money."
Cons: "The plane was faulty so we had to change aircrafts and ended up leaving 2.5hours later than scheduled"
Pros: "Cheap and got to Madrid 15 mins early. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Early Sunday fligh... took 30 mins to queue from motorway to Stansted terminal. If were checking in bag there was a big queue too (I didn't need to). The slowest part was airport security, allow extra 20 minutes at least to get through. Did priority boarding so we didn't queue to board and sat together and had room for our bags (some ended up at feet or in hold)"
Cons: "6 hour delay. 5 euro voucher - that could only buy water. But worse than that was the staff on board. Their rudeness was beyond belief. They: - Stood next to me and bitched about their job and people on board the flight - Laughed about a girl in front of me and her weight - Yelled at me for having my laptop open at the start of our decent (rather than ask me to close it) - Did not apologies once for the delay (which meant I missed a family members birthday) A formal complaint will be written."
Pros: "The air crew were excellent"
Cons: "Communications around boarding and gates was chaotic and our take off was delayed for over an hour. Staff were rude and unhelpful. They seemed confused themselves and found it difficult to communicate anything helpful to passengers"
Cons: "They took my cabin luggage to the cargo even though it is the right size due to no more space in over head compartment and I believe if they where strict about the size with the All Pax and only allowed one price each in the hand the compartments would have been sufficient. You need to make sure to ask pax to be at check in desk 2 hrs before dept during peak periods due to security takes longer time make the story short I was happy with the above all standards Abdullah Benafif."
Pros: "nothing bad attitude , theft by law , non-helping employees , misleading information."
Cons: "i went to airport and astonished that they sent me an email ( during my vacation ) saying that I must check in online ( I didn't took my vacation to read emails especially when the email is sent the same day i will travel ) , i went to pay the check in fees ( which are very high ) , the system refused the master card , Visa card and the employee refused the 500 euro bill , i was compulsory to draw cash from ATM machine , when I came back to counter the employees refused to check me in saying ( you are late now !!!!!!!!!!!) , i was late because of your way of working and misleading customers. as a result i lost more than 1500 euro to get new tickets from Thessaloniki-Athens then Amman and getting a hotel for additional night and taxis ...etc . what made me laugh is that my refund was refused by Ryanair . this is a joke company and I'm thinking in suing them ."
Cons: "Allocation of seats saw my wife in 5c and myself in 31d. 31e was vacant."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about flying RyanAir"
Cons: "No legroom, seats are cramped. £100 for 1x 20kg bag and £56 to reserve 2 seats. £2 payment charge in order for me to give them money... No entertainment Delayed inexplicably for an hour on the taxiway - no reason given. There aren't even seat-back pockets. Truly awful flight."
Pros: "Seats were more spacious then expected."
Cons: "When checking in I noticed me and my boyfriend were "randomly allocated" seats 10 rows apart. When I called and enquiried about this I was told that I would have to pay to move the seats even though there were 4 seats available next to my boyfriends allocated seat. This is ridiculous seeing as it was not a separate booking and there were plenty of seats available! On the way back my boyfriend was charged 50 euros for a bag which the flight attendant deemed as oversized even though on the way there it was perfectly fine. Her reasoning was that it would have to be put under the plane... When walking to the plane we saw that most people were asked to leave their hand luggage on the tarmac to be put "under the plane" without being charged so essentially we were ripped off yet again!"
Cons: "Just not nice . I know it is budget but whole experience was nasty"
Pros: "Ryanair compares well with a lot more expensive airlines. It's not perfect by any means but it offers excellent value for money."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding, I had priority boarding pass..I was so confused where to go"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful cabin staff"
Cons: "Really cramped seating :-("
Cons: "Rude crew... chaotic at airport... upswell on everything make it expensive not cheap flight"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "Everything is boor"
Pros: "Nothing I can think of."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. This affect our hotel and taxi arrangements severely. Also the baggage collection was extremey slow and painful with a wait of 1-2 hours."
Pros: "Service on time"
Cons: "People next to me"
Pros: "Overall was fine."
Cons: "The chairs are way far be replaced as they are extremely uncomfortable. Thanks anyway and all the best"
Pros: "Ryanair - the carrier for low class English people looking for a cheap holiday in the sun"
Cons: "Gosh, what a horrible airline. To avoid unless the price is dirt cheap."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and the crew were welcoming on board. The aircraft was clean and tidy. The flight en-route was comfortable, but only as we were asked to move to the emergency exits due to a lack of occupancy. The aircraft arrived on time and disembarkation was efficient. Castellon is a small quiet regional airport and a pleasure to fly from and to. There are now some additional facilities being installed (food and drinks outlets) which will make the experience more comfortable."
Cons: "We pre-paid for speedy boarding and fasttrack. Fasttrack was good but speedy boarding was a waste of money as we were boarded via a single queue onto a bus and then transported to the aircraft. On-board service was chaotic with many passengers around us complaining about the hot food. The method of pre-ordering whilst they then serve the cold service went badly wrong and all around us passenger were complaining about not getting their food. Then it would appear they ran out of one food product which left one passenger behind us very upset and they complained. Our food arrived but it was overcooked and they attempted to overcharge us but did not argue when we pointed out their error. On arrival at Castellon whilst waiting for border entry passengers were queuing onto the tarmac prior to having access to the under-cover terminal. It had been raining but had unfortunately stopped. If it were raining this would not be an acceptable situation and one that Ryanair should address with the airport."
Cons: "I had to ask 6 times for sugar for my tea, I was brought some without spoon almost after an hour and it was already cold by then. Also there was 1 hour delay"
Pros: "As per always, Ryanair are cheap, get you to your destination on time with minimal effort."
Pros: "Friendly, calm crew. Luggage collection was speedy."
Cons: "When gate was announced everyone went straight to long queue, with only one person working gate. No sign of anyone to do priority seating, if we had booked it. We had earlier been in a long queue for security, so were feeling, tired & frazzled. Our hand baggage went into the hold instead of on the plane."
Pros: "Punctuality, cheery crew, decent leg room compared to some other airlines, inability to recline seats (great!)."
Cons: "Lack of seat-back pocket in front for book, newspaper etc."
Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "Nothing , I travel with Ryanair because of the Cheap price"
Cons: "Bad service, bad use of technology, complicated baggage systems. Overall a terrible experience and not worth flying with them"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, very friendly and professional cabin crew. Good landing."
Cons: "The woman working at the boarding desk. Although we were running late the door was still open and she closed it in front of us and did not let us board the plane making us miss the last flight of the day and for the whole weekend. Horrible staff, terrible airline and costumer service is below acceptable"
Cons: "Motor sounds"
Pros: "Ryanair is always and will always be the worst airline ever."
Cons: "Because of how Ryanair works"
Pros: "Cannot complain about the price and allocated seating"
Cons: "Not much food available as advertised Herded into the waiting area before the plane has landed, no seating available there"
Pros: "Comfortable enough that I slept the whole way through the flight. I like the tall seats as they provide moe privacy."
