Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "When I reserved in Kayak it said it included luggage!! I was charged 65 pounds!!! I need a regund for this!!!! Please let me know what to do!!"
Pros: "When I left my wallet behind in my seat, it was returned quickly with everything intact. This was most likely due to quick action by the Bulgarian security personnel, but whoever did it, I am very grateful!"
Cons: "The cart delivering drinks was not capable of providing a simple glass of ordinary water. I waited 20-30 minutes for a small plastic glass to arrive. The effort to sell their expensive bottled water instead was obvious. Not very customer friendly."
Cons: "You had to pay for your drinks and snacks on the plan."
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "It was short and fine"
Cons: "not much room. cant explain the boarding. too complicated and required going down stairs."

Pros: "Did not like that I had to buy a coke. Like common really?"
Cons: "Boarding started 10-15 minutes before the announced boarding time and I did not hear an announcement for that. Seats are very uncomfortable, they have no lumbar support and my lower back still hurts from the three hours on the plane. 2 toilets for all economy class passengers are not enough - there was a line most of the time. Water for purchase???Are you kidding me? That was the worst surprise! What a shame, British Airways! Now you are one of the inhumane airlines! I will tell THE WORLD about that ridiculous fact! And not even extra small packages of snacks?! Now my favorite airline becomes Delta. There was no entertainment of any kind. There were no air vents above our seats (row 20 in that Airbus) and it got really hot before we were airborne."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID."

Cons: "En el aeropuerto la recogida de la maleta venía con otro número de vuelo, me tocó ir a información a averiguar."
Pros: "it was very nice,"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and I still had a 4 hour train ride to go. My luggage made the transfer in LHR BA scanned claim checks and confirmed they had them. This was on Friday, I finally picked them up on Tuesday. They never called me, and it cost me a €70 taxi. Not happy with BA or Iberia."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. Thank you!"

Cons: "Quality just feels very cheap, seems to cut a lot of corners."
Pros: "Everything was perfect !!"
Cons: "Hate BA."
Cons: "no tv"
Pros: "Personell helpimg mobility impaired travellers were wonderful"
Cons: "Airport is poorly equipped to handle more than 2-3 mobility impaired travellers at a time, information desk personnel very indifferen t (fellow travellers had more information and were more helpful)t, inadequate signage for how to navigate to the train between terminals, filthy bathroom, outrageous parking garage fees."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding"
Cons: "My headphones and audio were not working."
Pros: "It got us there in good time."
Cons: "Bit of a cattle car, but that's sort of what you expect."
Pros: "Boarding was very fast compared to most other flights. Crew was friendly. Flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Honestly - a bunch of drunk Scandinavians all around me. Very noisy and smelling so much from the alcohol, I almost got sick. Luckily, a very short flight. The guy behind me was very rude to the crew. Crew member handled him well. Was worried about him throwing up on me. Rest of flight was good."
Pros: "All the rest was fine I was happy with you service"
Cons: "The delay in on way going and coming back the only issue"
Pros: "Straight forward flight"
Cons: "Economy flights are not known for the space"
Pros: "Cheerful crew"
Cons: "Terrible queues and no graciousness from easy jet. Hospitality should be offered or something - very very poor. Will not fly with easy jet again."
Pros: "I don’t expect much from low cost airlines. Convenience and being in time"
Cons: "Passport control is just unbearable. 45 min because they had one person for Sever flights. A third world country does better"
Pros: "The journey was made easy & stressfree with all our info on the easyJet app. Staff were very friendly on both flights. Paid for the extra leg room & that made all the difference."
Pros: "Efficient, fast, decent legroom as we were on the exit row."
Cons: "No frills. No drinks or snacks. Everything is an extra charge however the flight was super short, so no big deal."
Pros: "Very fast turnaround, prompt boarding and disembarking."
Pros: "Despite an hour's delay on the runway (not easyJet's fault) and some turbulence, we still arrived with time to spare for our onward travel, so the pilot must have made up some lost time."
Cons: "The wait on the runway - French Air Traffic Control strike."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "When I booked this I didn't see an opportunity to pay for our bags on the Kayak booking site When I checked in the charge was about $60.00 for each of 4 bags .... more than half of the ticket costs. I don't think I'll use Kayak again if they are not clear regarding paying for bags ahead and saving. It may have been my oversight but I'm both poorer and wiser. Easyjet seems to thrive on the baggage charges.... it's not comparing apples and apples when Kayak gives prices if the baggage charges are hidden. I would like Kayak to change it's program or provide an option so that any baggage charges are calculated in the "up front" cost quote so that airlines are compared "apples to apples"."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Bristol airport security."
Pros: "Boarding, take off, landing & early arrival into Agadir"
Cons: "Anti social behaviour by a group of Asian lads"
Pros: "The check-in and boarding were cery quick"
Cons: "The place seats were a bit dirty"
Pros: "Old aircraft and most uncomfortable poor seat and leg space"
Pros: "Once I got to the plane, everything was fine. The crew did their best to accommodate everyone. ."
Cons: "It was getting there that was a pain. I am a handicapped passenger, traveling alone, walking on a cane. When you enter Terminal 1, you have to turn left and walk about 150 meters to an "assistance station" to get a wheelchair before you even check in for the flight. So for me it was walk 150 meters to wait for a wheelchair, be wheeled back to the airline's desk to check in, then go back the way you came to pass through security. (By the way, in the UK, you must remove all gels for a separate inspection, meaning toothpaste and shampoo, and they must be 100ml or less, or else you must check the bag.) After that rigmarole, you don't even go to the gate, because the flight doesn't have a gate assignment until about 35 minutes before departure. Then I had to climb stairs to get to the cabin. Shouldn't an airport in a market this large have jet bridges for every flight?"
Pros: "It was fairly efficient and landed on time, and the onboard crew seemed fine, if slightly disinterested."
Cons: "I used to think Easyjet were the most comfortable and relaxed budget airline but after a shouty girl at the boarding queue I then had to squeeze into a seat smaller than I remembered."
Pros: "The flight attendants Simone and the young lady were fabulous"
Cons: "no WIFI"
Pros: "That we had priority boarding because 2e had a small child with us"
Cons: "There was a delay on both flights. I had a small child with me which was hard ."
Cons: "Return flight on Friday night cancelled, no reason given. Next alternative offered Monday afternoon, still awaiting compensation."
Pros: "The price. The website"
Cons: "The queues for baggage drop off are the worst I've ever been in. Either you're understaffed or there was some kind of mess. My back and my legs are aching from the long stand."
Pros: "Flew from Manchester to Hamburg. Seated exit row in 11C. Leg room great. Crew was efficient. Good cheap flight. Delayed but kept well informed."
Cons: "Delay and boarding in Manchester. 'Now boarding' on notice board 10 mins before flight arrived."
Cons: "It was late by over an hour and their baggage fees aren't clear, each checked bag is $45 euro."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a fourth-five late for a 1:15 minutes flight. we got to the airport 30 minutes before the scheduled flight (2 hours before the departure) and they wouldn't let me check in."
Pros: "Take off to landing everything was good"
Cons: "2 hours to get to the aeroplane. 1 hour in easyJet queue. 1 hour in security. Only just made the flight. People should be fired for this continued incompetence and poor customer service."
Cons: "i was told by Easyjet that no flight for me on that day. I had flight from lisbon to frankfurt also. The customer suggested to buy ticket of TAP portugal which I did. Told to apply for compensation by email. Please help me in this regard. It was bad experience."
Pros: "Clean cabin."
Cons: "I always seem to sit next to an obese passenger who simply cannot fit in one seat (so they spill into mine)."
Pros: "Modern aircraft, once we were permitted onto aircraft the boarding was quick as both forward and rear doors were used."
Cons: "The crew didn't bother to offer a full retail service on board, aircraft had seat pads missing, crew sat eating for bulk of journey. Delayed inbound meant plane was over an hour late, and not cleaned between service."
Pros: "Flight arrived ahead of schedule - second time this happens with an easyJet flight!"
Cons: "The waiting room after border control and before boarding was extremely crammed, there wasn't even space for sitting on the ground.."
Pros: "Flight easy! Staff friendly! Charge is too high for large bag!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and onboard refreshments ok. Staffs were polite so on the scheme of things it was a good flight."
Cons: "Stupidly long wait"
Pros: "Crew was nice, flight good"
Cons: "You changed the airplane and didn't tell your customers. I did't have my seat and we had to wait 5-10 min before getting seated. We were already on the plane when we discovered what was happening, blocking the aisle. Very unconfortable"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "First, when getting my boarding pass I was NEVER notified that I had the right of one bag only inside the cabin. Once I reached the gate I had to check in one bag and pay a ridiculous amount for it (more than the ticket itself) You should be much more proactive in communicating this as most airlines allow one bag and one personal item on board, so most of travelers might be used to this policy. Then, seating space is very cramped, not even a drink is complementary, and it is not very tasteful to have the place full of advertisements and have a market inside the plane"
Cons: "Last row on the A320 and doesn't have a window so makes it feels very cramped and uninviting."
Pros: "Comply plane and nice staffs with a decent variety of snacks, sandwiches and drinks."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "First 45 minute delay because the plane arrived late. Then another half hour or more delay because of passengers being rowdy. It was an endless reshuffle of luggage in the compartments."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Reasonably comfortable for a budget airline"
Cons: "We had no complaints about the flight"
Cons: "1 Seats too upright with no movement. 2. No choice of whole milk. Semi skimmed milk is poisonous for our endocrine system, due to over- processing chemicals !"
Pros: "Convenient departure time, Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "middle seat, not enough leg room, no free water, missed mobile check-in (my fault)"
Cons: "Took so long to put our luggage on the gate was closed on my freind who missed the flight.we were two hours early I just managed to catch flight"
Cons: "I missed my flight. Due to British Rail I was very late and I had to run like crazy to get to the flight. Then security held me up for 15 minutes because my tablet was placed wrongly in the plastic box, despite me telling them I was super late. When I got through to the departures lounge the gate was already closed. I ran half a kilometer through the terminal and despite that, arrived at the gate while people were still boarding the plane for at least 5 minutes while I begged the staff to let me on the plane (I could see them through the window). The staff just insisted that nothing could be done even though I know very well it's a matter of adding "+1" to the load sheet. Ignorant, petty staff. This is not how you win new customers. I had to buy a new flight and travel from Gatwick to Luton because an officious staff member was too lazy to add "+1" to a piece of paper."
Pros: "Brilliant flights no problems departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Randomly picked for paying a carry on fee. Misleading, expensive, and the feeling of being extorted. I will push for a refund."
Pros: "If you are just looking to get from point A to point A and don't expected anything additional you will be ok on this flight."
Pros: "Cheap Quick Easy"
Cons: "Luton Airport needs an upgrade (already underway) Flight was late leaving Luton No food or entertainment provided as such so rated as a neutral 3 stars"
Cons: "The gate was całosezonowe way before so ive missed my flight"
Pros: "Petra is beautiful"
Pros: "The staff was very plesent"
Cons: "There was no water"
Cons: "Rubbish food options"
Pros: "The customer service of the cabin crew and nothing else!"
Cons: "They charged me £45 for my hand bag which was smaller than the standard handbags in other airlines, I had bought priority check-in service but still they didn't allow me to check in before anyone else, as I had to go to a separate queue to pay for my smaller than normal sized hand baggage ( in all other budget airlines its more than acceptable and was slightly bigger than Wizz Air allowance), the WizzAir hand baggage size allowance is way way too small and its a trap to make money off unsuspected passengers like myself. They were rude at the boarding gate and non-apologetic. Did not sympathize with me, although they were nice to other white passengers, I felt I was treated differently because of my race, specially after the Paris attack all brown skinned men were viewed as a potential threat I suppose and did not have a good experience in the flight as all passengers were looking at me funny! Point to be noted: On my way to Budapest from London I was carrying the same hand bag and I was not asked to pay extra!! Inconsistent service!"
Pros: "The wizz cabin crew was great as usual !"
Cons: "The plane was delayed for one hour. The gate was announced only 5 mins before boarding. Not enough to do during this time in the small airport. The meal selection on board was non-existent"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Nice modern plane (but spoilt by too many seats -see below). (Paid for) sandwich was very nice."
Cons: "Too many rows of seats fitted. The seat pitch was such that anyone over 5'11' would be in real trouble. Luckily the flight was far from full so I could put my legs sideways into the empty seat space next to me."
Pros: "Seats are ok but unable to recline"
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."
Cons: "boarding process felt like herding"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "We had an eventless and safe flight and it was not too cold on the plane."
Cons: "There was no paper towel in the toilet, the water for the tee was not warm enough to have tee. We have been told to have 10-20 min delay we arrived much later. And the intonation of the speaking stewardess was so annoying that you could not listen to it :( These are minor things but can change the customer experience."
Pros: "Extra legroom seats are a godsend (but that's applicable to any airline, not just Wizzair, although they do seem to have a few more of these than other airlines - low cost or not). Also, despite a 35 min. initial delay, we eventually landed only 15 min. later than the scheduled time."
Cons: "The boarding process at Gatwick was disastrous. There were only 2 agents, none of which spoke proper English. Also, one of them was busy checking each individual carry-on bag with unnecessary extra scrutiny, only to provide customers to the second agent, which was taking the payments for extra bags."
Cons: "Staff could of been friendlier. They would not give me a cup of water and said i had to buy a bottle."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Long check-in lines Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "I did not had a seat"
Cons: "I did not had a seat"
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Comply with departure times"
Cons: "Better organization on the boarding process, i.e. separate lines for priority and normal."
Cons: "Application instruction on baggage hande king and que to boarding."
Pros: "Good airport . Punctual flight ."
Cons: "1h 45 minutes waiting for luggages in Bucharest Otopeni. Still not delivered."
Pros: "Clean aircraft with good on board staff. Flight departed on time and arrived early. Overall they are good value for a low cost carrier."
Cons: "Wizz are a bit disorganised at bag check in, disorganised with overhead storage. Don't like the random seat assignment used if you don't want to pay the high price for assigned seats."
Cons: "Unconfortable sears. The seats cannot be moved back. The table is too high. I have traveled a lot but never seen tables at this height (above the chest). No entertainment, no wifi, and no food, but that's ok. After all, it's a low cost floght although many other low cost companies have wifi and entertaonments via mobile devices."
Pros: "Crew nice,seats ok"
Cons: "Expensive hold luggage,rip off"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The staff took ages boarding us because they were obsessed with trying to scalp people for exceeding baggage limits. Nothing free aboard, no entertainment, the seats were uncomfortable too."
Pros: "I asked for a cup of water for my child and they gave me a bottled water. Then they charged me 2.50 euros. Their credit card processing machine was not working properly, which was frustrating: the flight attendant got frustrated and had to come back again until she can process my payment."
Pros: "It flies direct to the airport that I wanted to go to."
Cons: "Little space. Legroom & hand baggage (which had to go in hold). Family of four were not seated together. Cabin pressure change made child ill (my phone has a pressure sensor and I could see the change in pressure trigger a desire to vomit). It should be transitioned more slowly."
Pros: "Mobile app is very good, but just allow you to download boarding pass on PDF version right at the moment of the check in"
Cons: "They didn't let me flight. Even that I did the online check in 24 hours before they didn't send me the boarding pass on PDF format via email. Also there were no way to download it from the mobile app or the website. I was in the airport 2 hours before and they didn't want to print it for me even that I showed all the online check in confirmation. They requested that I pay €35 Euro for the airport print. I submitted a complain and hope to get a credit or refund. Confirmation code: L3QZWB"
Pros: "Staff were generally sweet & approachable."
Cons: "Cannot understand management of border control security before boarding. This is done in the corridor on route to gate. Long long queues, then continued to queue before boarding in the waiting/holding room. No toilets once you enter the corridor to go to gate. Unsatisfactory management. Water from air conditioner dripping on me on board from take off. Not an immediate suggestion to move, but agreement to do so on my suggestion and then gentle insistence. Thankfully there was a seat for me! It seemed to be a problem staff were aware of which is concerning that Wizz did not block that seat."
Cons: "long time wating in bus to get plane"
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."
Cons: "Very very routh unprofessionally and disrespectful check in person . I did not receive by boarding pass through the email and was charged with 35 euros to have my boarding pass printed ! The clerk raised his voice and was disrespectful to me and other customers. The flight itself was ok, nothing special but not bad either."
Pros: "Price price price"
Cons: "Messy boarding"
Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."
Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"
Pros: "Crew were friendly! The app for the journey is good."
Cons: "announcements a little muffled. A delay caused us to wait on the bus for a good half an hour which was somewhat uncomfy, and the plane was very warm. couldn't take my shoulder bag on as well even though I could've put it under the chair, which I feel like is a sneaky way of making you pay for the speedy boarding thing."
Cons: "The airline does not have kiosk check-in. You are checked in automatically, and if you buy through a third party, your boarding pass is emailed to you. Never having flown this 'unique' airline before, we did not know the process. At the check-in desk, the clerk told us that if we couldn't show him our boarding pass, he would charge us 30GBP to print them. He was a complete jerk. After no help from him, I was able to figure out that we did have them as attachments. Never again."
Cons: "Was delayed on tarmac due to security error, not their error, but they seemed unwilling to at least give people complimentary water or coffee. Cheap airline they are!"
Pros: "Cooperative and kind crew. Excellent service. Pleasant flight, great landing and take off."
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"
Pros: "Arrived only slightly delayed"
Cons: "They made my boyfriend pay 35 gbp for a case 5 cams longer than their stipulation. Yet, lots of other passengers didn't have to pay. Sheer discrimination. Crew is unfriendly and refused to help me place my bag in over head locker. Really poor professional s"
Pros: "Well organised."
Cons: "Charging for light refreshments."
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Pros: "I was lucky to be seated next to the emergency door so I had a very comfortable seat. Also, the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The flight departed around half an hour late."
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."
Cons: "All was good"
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."
Cons: "The price is extremely misleading as they charge almost as much a ticket per luggage."
Pros: "Nothing. Do not fly. They are horrible and have horrible service."
Cons: "When we got up to the register we had to fork up over $80 for bags that could have even been carry-on's. While booking there was nothing stated about these charges. If this was going to be a charge it should have been made clear. Very unimpressed and displeased with the service from Ryanair."
Pros: "It was very poor and misleading regarding the price. To charge 45 Pounds for a suitcase borders on rip off."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"
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: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Strict baggage rules, uninterested attendants"
Pros: "that we arrived to destination."
Cons: "dirty interior around the cabin including the bathrooms. late leaving and arriving by 35 minutes. constant hustle to purchase airplane stuff."
Pros: "Fast and cheap. Clean."
Cons: "Seats too small."
Pros: "The flight went smoothly other than the problems mentioned."
Cons: "There were passengers on board who were already rowdy/excited when they got on board. They proceeded to drink heavily on board, yelling, putting on music on their iphones and singing along to it. Teh crew asked them occasionally to tone it down but did not stand up to them to make them shut up. It was worse than sitting next to a screaming baby for the entire 3 hours of the flight."
Pros: "Almost evrything."
Cons: "the way of embarquement."
Cons: "I was there 10 minutes from my flight because of a lot problems from airline doesnt matter and they supposed to take a flight at 15:30 my flight was delay but we arrived at 15:40 and i was thinking i lost but suddenly i saw that it was missing 10 people more and i was running like hell on it and at the gate they didnt let us to take a bus ... The funny was that the plane departure at 16:20 that was freaking out and Im never gona take that airline ! I always chose Norwegian but i was thinkkng that they have change little bit ° , in Norwegian one time they wait for me 20 minutes 20 minutes ! Ryanair is the most Bad and i feel sad if i m writing for them as well !"
Pros: "Comfortably seats and more reliability."
Cons: "It’s a classic ryanair flight. Need I say anymore!"

Cons: "Another passenger had exactly the same seat number as me which caused confusion and an uncomfortable situation"
Pros: "Nothing about the flight did I like"

Pros: "Really disappointed"
Pros: "Airport security was efficient."
Cons: "Every group on plane seemed to have been purposely split up even though there were many empty seats. Difficult to book luggage on the website. They said there were strict size limits on cabin bags, but when we got to the gate they didn’t check any - we had to pay for an extra bag in hold when we could have just used a bigger bag for hand luggage. Everything was difficult. Bag drop didn’t work - we had to queue to to go to the desk 3 times and the lady eventually did it herself. Staff were polite and nice."
Cons: "Boarding in Manchester was a disaster. Scanned boarding passes, let everyone down the stairs to the apron, only for to be told to come all the way back up the strairs again because of a change of aircraft. Had to do the whole pre boarding and boarding process all over again. More interested in selling hot Panninis rather than check if we had a belt for our baby. Even after doing safety checks, they passed us and still didn’t have a belt for our baby. Only when we called them back And asked for a belt did we get one, and all this whilst the aircraft was moving. Waited over 25 minutes for our buggy bag to come out the baggage belt in Dublin."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly, courteous and professional."
Cons: "Literally everything from checking in to seat and baggage is unnecessarily monetized."
Pros: "A pleasant journey."
Cons: "It was fine. No complaints."
Pros: "Nothing late again dirty plane not allowed to bring alcohol on which is fair enough but they don’t mind selling you there own"
Cons: "Everything was rubbish"
Pros: "'ve Ry quick"
Cons: "40 mins late"
Cons: "The heat, insane air con not working"
Pros: "In flight snacks were good. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Getting through security was a stressful nightmare. I had no idea what to put where. Was just given a tray and expected to know. Signs said inhalers needed to be in plastic bag but website said meds were ok but keep handy. Threatening notices said if you get it wrong your bag will be searched and you can be delayed for up to half an hour (the inference being you could miss your flight). Vowed not to fly again although may get over it!"
Pros: "On time and that’s about it"
Cons: "Hot, cramped, slow boarding and ridiculous wait times at the bag drop in. Almost missed our flight despite getting there 2.5 hours before boarding"
Cons: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We boarded on time but ended up 30 minutes late due to the staff running around like headless chickens, seemed very unorganised. Guy making announcements on the plane spoke so fast you couldn’t understand a word. Engine made a terrible buzzing noise for half the flight, so loud you had to shout to hear anyone."
Cons: "Delays, with poor comms. After advising of delays, they called us to form queues at the gate, but it was more than 1.5 hours before we started boarding. That’s 1.5 hours standing in line with no communication! No apologies from staff, and when we did start boarding a member of staff was so annoyed at some passengers who we’re in the wrong queue that they called out to the entire queue, (quote) ‘the little baby Jesus is sending you a sign so look to the heavens and you’ll see a sign which says priority to the left and non-priority to the rigjt, ok?’ Again, this is after keeping us queuing with no apologies and no refreshments for 1.5 hours. In all, we were three hours delayed, and not one member of staff even mentioned it. Staff on board were really poor also: huffing and rolling their eyes at passengers ordering food. Genuinely shocking service."
Cons: "I paid for my seats and the ask me to change next to the emergency door, something that i would never choose."
Pros: "Nice and cheap."
Cons: "The window was in the wrong place so I got a bad neck trying to look out."
Cons: "The flight was significantly delayed because of a woman having a panic attack. Other people should not have to wait because one person is afraid of flying."
Cons: "The staff, the crew none could english well enough for anyone to understand them"
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: "The price"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Delayed a little"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Everything. I’d rather walk than use this company again"
Pros: "Ryan air crew very good"
Cons: "No vegatarian food"
Pros: "We didn't crash and I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight was 90 mins late, we were herded like cattle onto the plane which was filthy with empty sweet wrappers littering the entirecabin, which in turn was full of crying children (whose parents appeared powerless/unwilling to comfort them). While none of this was helped by the poor weather creating epic turbulence and a near-miss with another aeroplane, I did take a flight the following day with EuroWings in identical weather which was far better controlled with less nausea-inducing turbulence so I do feel I can blame Ryanair for feeling quite sick as we left the plane. If we'd had to go in for a 3rd landing attempt, I'd probably have turned up for my meeting all covered in vomit as they don't even provide sick bags! Ryanair isn't just basic and cheap, they don't even do the basics properly. It's as though they're deliberately trying to make the experience as horrible as possible. Ryanair is dreadful. Never again!"
Pros: "Price of tickets!"
Cons: "Walking out on the tarmac to board."
Cons: "leaving later than scheduled"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Flight delay and .no air bridge"
Pros: "Everything about it was smooth and easy"
Pros: "The price of the ryanair flights are great, and will probably be the reason I continue to use them"
Cons: "I am not bothered that there was no in flight entertainment, or that everything cost extra, a lot extra, like drinks (2.5Euros for a can of cola). It’s what you’d expect from a trip that only cost £14.99 each way... But, the things that don’t cost anything, the things you’d expect from any big brand weren’t there at all. Zero communication from staff about why the fliight was delayed (until we landed at Frankfurt) Zero personality from the staff. They looked unhappy, or overworked, or bored... Lufthansa, British Airways, AA, etc... all happy staff. Staff weren’t even communicating verbally... they mimed a lot of stuff... The safety breif was disorganised and they had to repeat it as the pilot interrupted... and the pilots announcements were very unclear, due to a lack of pronunciation of the words he was saying. If I was to offer a suggestion as to how this could be fixed, Inwould suggest that it has something to do with poor recruiting, low staff morale, or something similar"
Pros: "Attentive crew and departed on time."
Cons: "The seat was not the most comfortable (of course) and the 10EUR meal I bought was not good either."
Pros: "The staff were friendly, the boarding crew clear and quick."
Cons: "Late take off, shouldn't happen for a regular short haul flight, meant I was too late arriving at my final destination"
Cons: "The landing very bumpy"
