Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Easy to book."
Cons: "We planned this trip several months out, then my husbands military orders (temporary duty) were extended. I called and called and called and emailed because I had stupidly purchased the insurance also. No one would help even because of the sudden change to our plans. So we're out money for all of us, and nothing can be done and no one will help. When we do make this trip later -- after my husband retires, I will not be working with any of these companies."
Pros: "Basic advance price very good. Brief and on time. Pilot was good, nice landing and flight. Speedy baggage at the carousel."
Cons: "Baggage fees added up"
Pros: "We were unable to check bags in advance. Staff handled at bag drop."
Pros: "I sat in the very first seat on the plane which was a wonderful experience for me as I am 6 feet tall. I had heaps of leg room. And was able to get on and off the plane with extreme ease as I was right in front of the door. Also had great access to the bathroom and stewardesses."
Cons: "The stewardesses tried to sell me everything but the kitchen sink which was irritating since it was such a short flight."
Cons: "I had to check my bag last minute because there was only room enough for 90 bags to be carried on board. I was in the middle of the boarding line so I should not have had to check my bag--there were not 90 people ahead of me. If I had known I would have taken precautions - luggage tag, etc."
Cons: "We had to pay 160 pounds for our luggage. It was not clear upfront when we booked that there was a fee for luggage. And then upon payment if either had to be all-cash or all credit card you could not do a little of both."
Pros: "Could have been a nice cheap flight to Irland"
Cons: "We were unable to pre check-in for the flight so we just checked in at the gate but didn't know that would cost £45! Knew it would cost to check a bag but £40? The flight only cost £50 to book. Woman at the counter to pay the fees was rude and would not listen to our explanation as to why we couldn't pre check-in."
Pros: "They got there on time. Very punctual."
Cons: "Rude staff, overpriced baggage fee's for 30 min flight."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Both my wife and I where near to the start of the queue in modlin airport when a lady from Ryanair put a sticker on my wife's bag to have it placed in the hold. She stated only the first 90 bags are guaranteed to go in cabin. My wife replied im at the front of the queue within the 90 people. Lady replied I dont care its going in the hold. Our bag was well within the bag limits. I pointed to bags that where well over the baggage size limit. Lady replied I don't care its going in. And she muttered something about not being Polish. Just so you know We are Brittish. The men who had the oversized bags were Polish. Disgracef Never flying with Ryanair again. Ignorant unhelpful racists staff."
Pros: "Nothinge medíocre sistema them booking"
Cons: "Sistema them booking i need explain way do mail descartável with people do chekin them i go to court very bad tio situação were i expenc more the 600 pounds"
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: "Thank you"
Pros: "Comfortably seats and more reliability."
Cons: "It’s a classic ryanair flight. Need I say anymore!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, no issues experienced."
Pros: "Efficient and cheap"
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"
Cons: "If I had flown with a better airline Ryanair are appalling"
Pros: "I do not know why we could not select seat upon booking - so that my wife and I could have sat next to each other. I know it's away you would like to make extra cash - but its a bit silly"
Cons: "The Yellow colour on seats - juts looks bad"
Pros: "Airport lounge"
Cons: "The obvious boredom of cabin crew due probably to poor wages and long hours."
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: "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"
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: "Prompt take off and easy boarding.decent leg room"
Cons: "My husband was very disappointed with the coffee and the chocolate and cranberry cake. Prices very steep too.."
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: "Delayed take off , arrived a head of time"
Cons: "Lack of information for delay"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The queuing for boarding and the speed for boarding was bad"
Cons: "= sardines and quite unpleasant"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no baggage tags to put cabin cases in hold and ‘random allocation’ seats actively place people as far away from each other as possible"
