Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Pros: "The crew was extremely efficient in everything they did. Beverage service was super but many of us didn't know we could get our own from the front of the plane."
Cons: "The seats lean too far back and are hard to get in and out of. There's very little space for anyone in the middle seats to move, much less climb out from. Oh, it was never clear to the passengers that anyone could get up and get drinks from up front during the flight."
Cons: "Worst possible gluten-free meal. Other airlines do it better. One CFAN make a sauce to put on chicken - it doesn't have to be boiled or microwave into a piece of rubber, with plain rice and a couple of boiled carrots. This isn't just gluten-free, it's complete allergen-free which is quite different"

I wanted a drink on the plane and had to pay for it- I’ve always had free drinks before."
Cons: "Haven’t flown it yet"

Cons: "They airline left our luggage in Dublin and we still do mat have it. It's been over a day. 25 other people were impacted by this error. My daughters wedding is in two days. I have no clothes.

Pros: "Short and sweet but a very comfortable ride."
Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"
Pros: "Their best was merely adequate."
Cons: "Unlike modern airlines Aer Lingus does NOT let you check in ahead of time. You have to WAIT in line forever with people checking luggage. Also, my flight was an hour late. No reason or apology given. It nearly made me miss my connecting flight"
Cons: "Ability to choose seats ahead of time was not streamlined."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "Not a single thing"

Pros: "Food, movies, snacks"
Pros: "Entertainment and meals make flying comfortable again."
Cons: "Seats are very close together. Glad to be short!"

Cons: "Professional staff"
Pros: "Nice crew, fairly comfortable seats. Lots of tv and movie choices."
Cons: "Food was not as good as flight in other direction. Limp and close to expiration. Boarding on this airline is always a rush. Flight is announced and advertised as wifi enabled but impossible to connect, despite multiple tries throughout the twelve hour flight."
Pros: "Professional and caring crew."
Cons: "Random additional security check AT THE GATE in Dublin was unnecessary and poorly organized, as it required my 18 y/o daughter to go all the way back to passport control; they were already closing the gate when the associate brought her back; extremely stressful and unnecessary! In my experience when random additional check is required it is done at security checkpoint, never at the gate."
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Cons: "Had to go through security twice"
Pros: "open seats were a blessing"
Cons: "food terrible, entertainment very poor for a 10 hour flight - old, boring movies, also the restrooms in the terminal at Dublin were really bad - terrible way to start a long flight"
Pros: "The best part of the flight was the crew. They were calm, professional and incredibly kind. We had along our 10 month old baby and they were so welcoming and helpful with her. The best crew I've ever interacted with on a flight."
Cons: "Seating space is way too little! No food."
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "Attendants were not overall friendly and a bit impatient"
Cons: "This really is more about the flight from paris to Bucharest: I’ve literally never experienced a worse ticketing and boarding process. Old planes, ride staff (even by remarkably curt and abrupt Romanian standards). Broken inline experience. Overall unpleasant. Seems to be flown only by Romanian families with hundreds of pounds of luggage. Like a caravan."
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."
Cons: "I was not allowed to take the push chair on board even though on the inbound flight was ok to do so. I have purchased the push chair especially so I can take it on board. Disappointed."
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."
Cons: "Passengers traveling with pets took our reserved seats. The places for our baggages were occupied. When addressing this issue, we were told to move further ahead to empty seats. There was no meal included, and the one we purchased could not be paid by POS."
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"
Pros: "Stupid survey can’t eliminate category that doesn’t ajgpply"
Cons: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Pros: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Cons: "I liked everything"
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"
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!"
Pros: "On time ,clean aircraft..."
Cons: "Crew was very serious...a smile can make a difference....."
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: "Arrived early to destination"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment also limited drinks"

Pros: "On time , crew good... no complaints"
Pros: "free breakfast great staff"
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"
Pros: "Everything was awesome!!! I am going to buy only from you my next flights."
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."

Cons: "No online check-in. 1 hour waiting for nothing."
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"
Pros: "The crew is very good"
Pros: "Seemed like a technical problem. The pilot wouldn't give up any information."
Cons: "Small seats with little legroom"
Pros: "All was very efficient, food and drink a nice surprise"
Cons: "Delayed flight, once on board the aircraft, further delays on the ground (at Glasgow) made up time in the air landed (not too far from our original landing time) only to be told we’re now being held on the ground (at Gatwick for at least another 20 minutes!) I flew with BA this morning and rated them excellent for everything! EJ you need to up your game!"
Pros: "Big fan of easyJet"
Cons: "Be good as you are."
Pros: "Very little to like flying like this"
Cons: "This is a cut rate airline and if that is what you want and nothing else available this is your flight"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "On time boarding, better communication, better amenities. Cheap airline. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "Board on time or at least updates why we are waiting."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."

Cons: "I have travelled many easyJet flights but today’s ground crew in Nice were rude, hostile and not nice to passengers"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Friendly. Extra leg room for free. Nice company in plane"
Cons: "2 people were kicked off the plane because they were drunk and called the flight attendant FAT BOY. not only once ! i can still see the flight attendant quite distressed. It’s absolutely horrible to see these things happening more and more often. The police have arrested them and thank god we weren"
Cons: "takeoff and landing weren’t very comfortable"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "It was one of the best flights ive been on and would recommend easyjet."
Pros: "quick check in information given in good time regular messages about potential disruption friendly staff"
Cons: "some times cabin staff were a bit too business-like al few people skills would be good"
Cons: "Excellent flight, only issue was flight information from Captain was spoken too fast and it was hard to understand what was said...please ask them to slow down their speech on the in flight announcements, cabin staff were fine"
Pros: "Flight on time and arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Not having to put our hand luggage in the hold and delaying our journey home"
Pros: "Amazing timely departure and super fast luggage!"
Cons: "Boarding process always painful. Not sure why they always take passengers in an uncomfortable standing only zone and still make them wait."
Cons: "Terrible experience with easy jet, for the second time the broke my bag, the attendant just before boarding to the plane she charged me ( in a very rude way) 50€ just because she thought my cabin bag is bigger than standard!! Who will redeem me for my 300€ broken bag. I will try never to fly easy jet unless it is the only available option."
Pros: "EasyJet is always a good option. Baggage is included which is not common these days among small airlines. Flight attendants are very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding was quick, flight was smooth and arrived 20 minutes early to our destination. I looked ahead on their site and paid a little extra for XL seats, with those you get speedy boarding and can bring a purse or backpack on top of your one rolly-bag carry on - they make it VERY clear on their site that you are only allowed 1 carry on within very specific size measurements. The XL seats were worth it for the leg room and extra small bag."
Cons: "No snack, no entertainment, and a charge for water."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok, price"
Cons: "Delay and no explanation, located on the worst gate which was announced late. Worst gate because the path led to another gate in super close proximity which created a blockage for other who wanted to get on to their plane. Least resourceful flight attendants Ive ever met, luggage, that was excessive on this flight, instead of placing in it as a check in luggage the asked passengers with smaller package to just keep it with them while seated."
Pros: "Everything went to schedule and the crew dealt with an illness emergency without fuss and I am sure more than half the passengers never knew about it."
Cons: "40 min departure delay due to Stanstead airport unable to allocate the usual landing slot before we left Glasgow."
Pros: "Flight was fine, but no luggage at other end. Have to fill out forms on line that are more work than ideal ! Hope they contact me tomorrow since we are going to a wedding Sat and have zero clothes or toiletries. Uggghhh"
Cons: "Flight was fine, but no luggage at other end. Have to fill out forms on line that are more work than ideal ! Hope they contact me tomorrow since we are going to a wedding Sat and have zero clothes or toiletries. Uggghhh"
Pros: "A standard good Easy Jet experience"
Cons: "We (along with everyone) had to check luggage (at no charge), despite being first in line (regular queue) and despite the fact that there was plenty of room in the overhead lockers (and would have sped up boarding considerably)."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Long lines, long delay, non comfortable seats, no entertainment"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Cons: "More than 60 min delay!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The food wasn't that great but it was reasonably priced to not the end of the world"
Pros: "Easy booking app"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Over one and half hour delay meant I had missed last train to Victoria and instead had to wait a further 40min for a slow train to Kings Cross. If on time i would have been home by 12am latest. Instead got home at 3.30am. Unacceptable for Easy jet not to take much responsibility of this massive inconvinece"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight that didn't allow a carryon bag and some kind of bad to tuck under the seat ahead of you. There was room for my small backpack but because I had a carryon suitcase to go in the overhead bin, they made us check that bag and pay a very hefty fee."
Cons: "It was appalling. 2 hour delay. Good reminder why I never fly them usually."
Pros: "Spacious seats for an airplane! And the takeoff and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "Being from the US, we weren't familiar with the boarding process (no gate # until almost time)- but that was our challenge, not anyone else's. we really enjoyed flying Easyjet."
Cons: "Failing to check in before getting to the airport will result in them selling your already bought ticket to someone else. This happened to me and had to by a one-way ticket with British Airways at double the cost of the original return ticket from EasyAir. Did not even try to help."
Pros: "Short, quick flight that saved me a lot o time"
Cons: "Queuing on a stairwell in Belfast"
Pros: "Was it a new plane? Seemed to be quite roomy for an Easyjet flight. Very quick security at Luton!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed really staggered instead of free flowing.like other flights, that is, a few people for on, it looked like it.was going to be a quiet flight, then a few more people for on, then heaps of people got on really late, so then there were problems with overhead space and people couldn't get past one another in the aisle... It was a bit of a shambles. Very slow passport control in Stockholm."
Pros: "Departed punctually in both directions. Just a 25 minute flight so there's not much more I can say."
Pros: "Crew were lovely, good leg room as somehow got allocated exit row. Toilets nice and clean"
Cons: "One hour late taking off. I checked in carry on luggage when requested " for the greater good" but added time to journey - shouldn't be necessary. Long bus ride from plane to terminal also added time. Everything else ok"
Cons: "Everything. 4 hour delay, no communication, no free food for our inconvenience, uncomfortable seats and unprofessional air stewards who droned on at length and in a loud voice about how tired they were, the pilot and co-pilot were and how the mechanical problems on the plane were never fixed and we flew anyway."
Pros: "Generally smooth check-in process, easy to get through airport and security, and boarding was painless."
Cons: "Disembarking required a bus to the main terminal - crowded and late"
Cons: "Speedy boarding in Venice is a complete fraud, and they should be banned from offering it! They do not manage the passengers as they board the bus to go to the aircraft, so the reserved area for SB passengers becomes full of people who did not pay for the service. Then people sneak into the seats at the front of he plane that are also an extra fee, and the flight attendants refuse to check their boarding cards."
Pros: "waited an hour in the airport and an hour in the plane."
Cons: "everything. I was told afterwards that this is standard practice. Late, Late, Late. Only one carry on making you pay for 20 kilos when the bag weighs 5 Had to check two 5 killo bags for 40 BPS! So much for low faresl Dishonesty. Walk Walk Walk Walk"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "2 hour delay, massive queues, long wait for expensive service on plane, cramped seats"
Pros: "It was an hour and a half late going; an hour late returning. Coming back check in staff bothered me about me carry on bag, which were the same I had taken out on Easy Jet."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. Flight was delayed but no gate information was given until boarding had commenced by which time 300+ people had to go through passport checks at Keflavik for multipleUK/Canada flights. When we reached the boarding gate, crew were unfriendly and screens showed boarding was already closed. the flight itself was average, but boarding procedure could have been improved as they were aware boarding would be at D gates (the only one that flies out to UK)."
Cons: "Lead turblence"
Pros: "The overall price"
Cons: "Waiting in line for boarding to find out the passengers in the plane that had arrived had not disembarked. Passengers (and not just priority) brought more than one bag onto the plane. The overhead stowage was bulging. As a passenger with a foot cast the disembarkation was not the best"
Pros: "Quick flight. However as is usual with Ryanair cabin crew their diction on the intercom giving instructions are appalling. This is a feature of Ryanair. Ask for diction or speech lessons and at least passengers will understand. My kids thought the crew were speaking Polish"
Cons: "Not to fly with Ryan air which I won’t be!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Being a bit late. Unusual for Ryanair"
Pros: "Fast. That's about it really."
Cons: "More leg room and more comfortable seats also would be nice if the food wasn't extortionate"
Pros: "As good as it can be with Ryanair"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Reasonable price. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Priority boarding didn't really work."
Pros: "The flight was quick, customer service was good on the plane"
Cons: "Checking in online was a nightmare as the site kept freezing, there was a mix up with my priority and cabin baggage, I was told by the webchat team that this had gone through but not on my boarding pass, when I got the the airport the Ryanair staff were extremely rude to us, they sent us to the back of the queue I front of everyone and then told us we would have to pay to take our bags with us, they then had to be out on the hold. When we got back to Birmingham we then had to sit on the plane for around 15 minutes as there was not a slot for us. I spent hours of my 2 day break trying to sort check ins etc, I would never fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Flight on time, luggage handling ok"
Cons: "The long walk to and from the plane. The stupid trail down the steps into the cold and rain, across the tarmac then back up the steps into the plane. At Birmingham airport. Fine at Malaga no problem."
Pros: "Nothing, DO NOT flybw this airline"
Cons: "They charged me 220 pounds at the counter for boarding passes"
Pros: "Boarding was straight forward and fast."
Cons: "Very basic comfort. Less leg room."
Pros: "The only thing good with this flight was the time keeping."
Cons: "The first time travelled with Ryanair and the last.Seating uncomfortable, back rest to upright.Difficulty understanding the crews public announcing over tannoy system.Allocation of seats diabolical. Not a lot of advantage being a priority passenger from non priority. Suggest implement similar procedures to jet2. Would learn a lot."
Pros: "Flights ran to time"
Cons: "Some passengers were taking phone calls when the safety demonstration was being done."
Cons: "Flight was delayed missed my last connecting train"
Cons: "One hour late departure insufficient information Had to be bussed to plane negating any value for paying for priority Parked off stand at Birmingham had to use steps from plane and into terminal wife has arthritis and can’t carry bags I had to carry two bags down steps unable to use handrail really quite dangerous no apology re delay"
Pros: "Got there on time"
Cons: "It's Ryanair - a thoroughly unlikeable airline."
Pros: "Quicker flight late at night"
Cons: "Waiting on bus to terminal Almost missed last train."
Cons: "Staff were quite rude and didn't spend time explaining the delay we were having in English"
Pros: "Honestly nothing, apart from welcome smile from crew..."
Cons: "dirty, overcrowded, seats even closer in my opinion (Boening 737-800), broken window cover, bad smell"
Pros: "You get what you pay for. No issues"
Cons: "The queue on the tarmac waiting to board but I realise they are trying to keep to schedule"
Pros: "Once the aircraft arrived the boarding and take off were fairly quick. The flight itself self was extremely quick and there was no hassle. Quite impressed with that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed initially with 2 hours. There was no notification by the airport. After 2 hours there was another hpur delay. Again there was no notification. We and the other passengers had to constantly last to the gatw screen to see any updates. We were left in the dark until the very moment we started boarding."
Pros: "Nothing -apart from the fact I eventually got to the destination I needed the same day!!"
Cons: "The delays. The lack of information. It became obvious we were not going to leave on time. But No announcement. nobody told us of the delay - or why. Then the conflicting information. Technical problems. Flight cancelled. Go to Ryan air deal to organise your own forward travel. Then - once back through Police & customs. No - flight going to happen!!! I have more to say about service & crew - but no space"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Delayed Limited information/explanation provided Ground staff rude"
Pros: "Nothing really, it's a cheap ticket and that's it."
Cons: "Ridiculous boarding situation, expensive onboard food and beverage. Upright seats. Advanced check in always seats your group apart to encourage you to purchase seats. Budget airline that trust to milk their clients for every penny. Only use them if no other option."
Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "The delay in boarding particularly as no explanation was given."
Cons: "The cabin bag fiasco"
Pros: "Speed of flight, getting off the plane"
Cons: "Stinking aeroplane, long delays, immigration and security queues"
Pros: "Uncomplicated flying."
Cons: "I planned to eat on the plane so bought nothing onboard with me. By the time the cart got to me there was no food left. I had no option but to buy some crackers for my meal. The moral of the story: buy food to take with you!"
Pros: "Was quick and easy"
Pros: "For the price what is there to complain about."
Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Sitting with a stranger"
Cons: "Don’t like the underhand Ryanair pricing"
Pros: "Most parts were as to be expected"
Cons: "Unavoidable Weather caused diversion to Manchester. Like all airlines, Ryanair are unable to perform to expectations, and promises made (Low priority to get off plane into terminal comp to planes that arrived after us.No busses to Birmingham had been arranged for onward travel of passengers.) Etc."
Cons: "Everything wasnt fully compensated and when zi asked for help refused to speak to me"
Pros: "We landed 10 minutes earlier than expected"
Cons: "We paid £80 a person which is over double what it costs us to fly there with vueling on less notice They then moved the boarding location after everyone had lined up causing us to loose out place in the queue They made us check our cabin bags which we were warned could happen but is never appreciated The seats were uncomfortable and very cramped for leg room The touched down while not totally their control was very harsh and a panel over the engine actually slid open on touch down which is a little concerning There was also a 20 minute delay taking off"
Pros: "It was nearly on time. Only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Pilot wasn't keen on communicating with us poor passengers. Where were we flying? What speed? What were we passing over? Perhaps that information would cost extra."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and helpful on board I didn’t have any food and there wasn’t any entertainment"
Cons: "I didn’t like that there was absolutely nobody at the airport to answer any questions or just guide you in the right direction"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours, Ryanair lied to us the entire time"
Pros: "Nothing, taxi plane, expectations not high"
Cons: "Cramped seating, flight delay, time waiting at the boarding gate."
Cons: "If RyanAir reads these reviews can I make a small suggestion that would make a big difference? The plastic cups provided with drinks are tall and narrow making them unstable inflight.Simply changing to a more squat shape would increase passenger comfort."
Pros: "The flight there and back got us there early each time despite being late departing. Choosing your seat is the ideal thing to do, even if it is only £6 more its worth it."
Cons: "There was no Aircon on the plane out which made it an uncomfortable flight out there and caused for certain people to smell slightly. The staff on the flight back weren't overly great and one accused a bloke of snatching when actually his bag was just heavy. She also had attitude towards others which made me think, whats she going in this job."
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "We were stuck on the ground for an hour. Not impressed."
Pros: "everything on this flight went like clockwork the flight left on time and the crew onboard were really helpful and pleasant"
Pros: "no redeeming quality"
Cons: "the accommodations, seats, personnel, ticketing, take off, landing, lack of courtesy, lack of amenity, lack of charm, lack of class, lack of professionalism"
