Airline reviews

Pros: "Spacious not over crowded smooth flight British Airways was great! Very attentive flight attendants."
Cons: "Chicago O'Hare was a mess as far as making connections. There was no signage and the airport attendants did not offer any assistance."

Cons: "It was a two hour flight, we did not get the opportunity to buy a drink and food until an hour and forty minutes into the flight. This is not acceptable."

Pros: "The crew did their best to minimize delay"
Cons: "Flight delayed, arrival very late night. No snacks, drinks , only to purchase. Like a low cost airline"

Cons: "No free water on the flight. I was not able to use my USA credit card. Water is essential during flights!!!! I got sick on the pain from headaches!!!!!! Water should be a basic, free thing to served on a plain."

Cons: "there's no screen. hence there's no chance of entertainment. a cup of water or just a juice box should be free/standard."

Cons: "On a flight to Budapest, budapest airport had issues that forced us to land in Austria. 5 hours later we’ve been completely abandoned in an empty airport while all the other planes that landed paid for their customers transport. It’s 4am, we have not been given food water or a plan as to how we will get to our destination. The plane crew basically told us we are on our own and left. This is straight up cruel, unjust and completely unacceptable considering we paid more than 2000 dollars for these flights"

Pros: "They arrived a few minutes earlier than expected."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "carry-on not allowed on board"

Pros: "Good leg room, good service from staff and left early"
Cons: "Did not have food so can't comment but tea was cold, however cabin crew more than happy to change it. no other negatives to think of"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I understand that airlines want to cut back where ever they can, but I have a hard time believing that you cannot swing a bottle of water and a sandwich. Oh BTW beware of their new “security” regulations. So I had a bottle of perfume in my carry on, only about a quarter maybe a third left in a 100 ml bottle. Guess what, it is not the amount of liquid you have in it, it is the amount the bottle can hold that matters. Needless to say they confiscated it."

Cons: "Only card why?? No free food??"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Even coffee was not complimentary"

Cons: "Corralling people into shopping area by not disclosing gate assignment. Then corralling people into a boarding area where there is no access to bathroom facilities. Then boarding without any order except for some privileged passengers (first class, club members). Finally,not serving any soft drink or little snacks unless you pay for some overpriced stuff. This is a sure way to drive passengers away from BA towards no-frills discount airlines."

Cons: "Asked for water when they were selling beverages, and was told sharply "not yet". Flight attendants did not make eye contact and never return for us or other passengers around us."

Pros: "Pilot was communicative about flight delay."
Cons: "The food service never made it to our row. Not even water was offered on a two hour flight."

Cons: "for the price I paid the service did not offer complimentary food or even water or soda."

Cons: "I can not comment yet, it will be unfortunately several hours before I take this leg of my trip"

Pros: "The seat I had was good"
Cons: "No food, no drinks. They asked me to pay even for water. After a very long trans Atlantic flight, this being a connecting flight after a long a tired 11 hours layover in London. It is an embarrassing how the airline cares (or doesn't care) who travels with them, where the people are coming from so they can understand their needs. I don't think it would had make a difference to the airline if they would acknowledge connecting passengers and eventually try to make their experience a little easier. But asking for a glass of water and not getting any is an embarrassing experience for this airline. I will never fly with British if I can."

Pros: "The plane is a newer one than what they are flying across the Atlantic and the seats were decent for the length of the flight. The crew were very nice and gave us tap water to drink for free."
Cons: "They don't offer any free food or drink, not even water. The boarding process was slow and laborious as they were making people check their carryon bags as they were checking the boarding passes."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no complimentary water and coffee and more."

Pros: "Politeness, precision, correctness."
Cons: "It was a little bit hard to understand the words of the pilots because of the noise."

Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "person in seat reclined and their seat hit my knees and was uncomfortable"

Cons: "Requested a Kosher meal through the British Airways reservation directly, was not provided with such for the trip. Boarding was delayed by 35 minutes."

Cons: "They lost all of our luggage from our group traveling together. 8 bags didn't make it. Very frustrating."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Nice high tech tvs to watch movies and tv shows"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Could not check in online"

Pros: "See above."

Pros: "We made it to our destination."
Cons: "The airline misplaced our stroller and one of our cases. We felt abandoned."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "That we did not fly British Airways."

Cons: "The arrangements by Kayak did not allow me to make my connections on time. I missed the connection from Heathrow to Manchester. And only made the connection from Manchester to Heathrow because I was escorted in a wheelchair."

Cons: "Very slow operations at the Heathrow airport."

Cons: "Lost all our luggage"

Cons: "Landing was rough. Very rough."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our British Airways flights were cancelled going & returning on the trip. This resulted in rebooking in both directions, at different points in the trip. The cancellation on the return trip was extremely inconvenient since we didn't have a phone to contact BA. After wondering the airport on the day of our departure, for a BA representative that could help, we were directed to a ticket sales office. Then after waiting for another one (1) hour in a line, the BA representative rebooked our return flights. This was not a good way to start or end a trip!"

Pros: "Heathrow Terminal; Check in easy. Staff knowledgable Security smooth until you reach carry on check. Disorganized area very cramped, 3-4 individuals at a time to place items in trays."
Cons: "Gate not assigned until 1 hour before boarding but this issue would be workable if the assigned gate is A. I am 68 years old the trek to gate C was ludicrous."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It took us over an hour to board. There were 3 lines. 3 attendants. One attendant would leave and we would be left standing there for 20 min. Then they lost my luggage. After 1 day they said they found it in Rome. Each day I would call and they said Rome wasn't sending it. They said they were in India and they couldn't do anything. Finally after 5 days I got it"

Pros: "Was able to move a passenger so that we had an empty seat between us in a row of three."
Cons: "BA check-in system down and could not get a boarding pass. Could not proceed without one and could only get one via a long wait in the "assistance" line. Departed an hour late due to a passenger not getting clearance to leave the country and then for them to remove their luggage."

Cons: "Could not check in advance. At least this was not clear to me from the email notification."

Cons: "Made us run from one end of the airport to the opposite end, because they said they had ‘operational difficulties’, causing them to switch gates between two flights. Total baloney, and completely avoidable."

Cons: "Timing being more accurate"

Pros: "The staff was really nice and on time"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours"

Pros: "It left on time and the service was reasonable."
Cons: "This probably isn't to do with EasyJet, but the Nice airport was a disorganised mess. It was under-staffed and there was some type of problem where they wouldn't let anyone leave the airport for an extra hour."

Cons: "It all could have been a bit better. I feel like I’m traveling on a bus- & the price is not sooo much lower to warrant that!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour"

Pros: "Boarding flowed well. Good flight, helpful staff."
Cons: "Left a little late but made good time. A positive experience."

Cons: "Arrived late, I lost my connection, costing lots of money"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Legroom - knees jammed into sest in front, and guy next to me had to put legs into me to fit. Painful"

Cons: "no entertainment no food, no snack, no drink scary landing due to strong, gusty wind in Innsbruck"

Cons: "Loud passengers"

Pros: "Quick and convenient"

Pros: "Appreciate that the situation with the Virgin flight meant that safety checks had to be completed before we could take off. Cabin crew were very chatty, but a free drink or packet if peanuts would have been appreciated. Had a similar delay with a BA flight in June and they gave us a soft drink from the bar as a gesture of goodwill."
Cons: "Once airborne, it would have been good if the pilot could have made up lost time and got us to Malta with less of a delay. Bloke next to me was downing beers and either had a stunning hangover or raging cold. His eyes were bright red and his breath was hideous. Made the whole flight a really unpleasant experience."

Cons: "Just not good enough for business travel. Stick to ahipping holiday makers who have a bit more flexibility on schedules!!"

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Minimal leg rooml"

Pros: "Scheduled to depart at 19.50, left at 01.50 and arrived in Barcelona at 5am."

Cons: "Really hard to land past 10pm with 2 young children. Over 3 hours delayed."

Cons: "Flight delayed by over 2 hours (19.05 flight)... Even the 20.30 flight left before us! Zero communication from ground staff, no food vouchers. Extremely poor!"

Pros: "Straight forward, no hassle flight. Staff (cabin crew) were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Went straight from boarding to gate closed, and when stated gate was closed there was still a queue s mile long. Flight was delayed, but this was presumably due to French air traffic control strike."

Pros: "Similar to my last booking, EasyJet was unable to process my checkin. I will be adding this entire booking as part of my fraud claim against Kayak, which will include costs incurred for the two additional bookings I had to make."
Cons: "Nothing to add here"

Pros: "Easy checking in"
Cons: "Delays of 1.5hrs, slow food service onboard. Uncomfortable seats Typical easy jet"

Pros: "It was nice to land a few minutes ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Having to walk so much to reach the gate"

Cons: "forced to have cabin bag taken away as hold luggage when they ran out of over head space athough it was small enough to fit under seat - very rude Easyjet staff at boarding who did not want to understand situation. thanks to being delayed by hold luggage pick up missed my connecting journey"

Cons: "I found my luggage broken!!!!"

Pros: "Slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Speedy boarding was a joke. We speedy boarded onto a bus and then everyone else got on so there was no real speedy boarding getting on the plane at all. This is the second time this has happened, and I am seriously thinking of not renewing my EasyJet Plus Card because of this."

Cons: "Very tight seating for people who are over 6’ tall."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff was very kind and helpful. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "We were late but it wasn't easyjet''s fault."

Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "Is it really necessary to charge for even water?"

Pros: "It was very efficient. I didn't expect such digital service. It was all self serve. There were plenty of people to help us though. Our bags were waiting for us in Stuttgart."

Pros: "Efficient service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No sucked"

Pros: "For a short trip it's fine. Price is right, the staff is cheerful, shuttle buses took us to customs very quickly. The bag drop system is very efficient."

Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, they changed the gate at the last minute I had to run fom One end of the airport to another. The food in the plane was not nice and expensive"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Although I had a child and was at the boarding gate in time,boarding was a free for all. We were also left waiting in a doorway with baby in the cold and with the fumes of the plane. The food was good but although I was on the first few rows with one of the first to request food some of the selections were not available. The fold out tables were also very dirty and the plane was uncomfortably cold"

Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Smooth"
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: "Prices on in flight purchases"
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculous, check in lady had no idea what an infant is and how their own app works. Suggested us to use the e-gate with an infant and angrily put us at the back of the cue. The infant wanted to breastfeed..."

Cons: "Staff could of been friendlier. They would not give me a cup of water and said i had to buy a bottle."

Pros: "The crew was so helpful and nice"
Cons: "I was happy with everything"

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: "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: "Last minute boarding change & overall 1 hr delay"

Pros: "Cheap flights, priority boarding."
Cons: "No meal included, no entertainment provided"

Pros: "Excellent pilot"

Cons: "Very long queues at boating in Charleroi airport"

Pros: "The staff - friendly, polite,, helpful and a nice uniform! No silly uncomfortable and unsuitable as in some airlines. Reasonably clean. Good price for a glass of wine and pac of dry fruit."
Cons: "Unable to understand tanoi messages - mumbling & too fast. Could not make out most of what staff said including why there was an hour's delay and safety procedures. If i were to bring an oversized and too heavy handluggage on board no doubt I wouldn't get away with it ! However the number of large and heavy bags passengers brought on board last night was ridiculous . It was a real struggle for people to find lockers for.their bags. Some people had quite a few. Delays take off and creates unnecessary chaos. Couldn't understand why I had to pay to check in online, obviously missed that when bookrd. Although I recall reading that it will cost if you check in the airport- so most likely my error. No facility or button to print boarding pass once checked in. No contact us button - I would like to change seat I booked for return but cannot see how to do this on line."

Pros: "Purchased priority boarding for a change which was nice to be able to not have to jump in the queue quickly. Boarding was fine and the crew were very friendly and professional. The extra legroom seats over the wing provided a good extra space."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane was not good, the carpets were fraying and the seats were old and tired. The seats were positioned too upright and there was no option to recline the seat so it was a very straight seat for 2hrs on the flight."

Pros: "Standard service , even was late come almost in time"
Cons: "Was a bit late"

Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."

Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."

Pros: "The crew are always lovely,very professional,helpful and make us feel welcome"
Cons: "The gate number was displayed and all passengers made their way to the gate were we made to wait for about 30min before passport control took place,no information was provided as to what caused the delay;after the passport control we had to wait again for about 15min.The late take off resulted in me narrowly missing my train home"

Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"

Pros: "Super easy online check-in, comfortable plane, lovely crew"

Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"

Pros: "was on time"

Pros: "The flight was cheap and got you where I wanted"
Cons: "Make sure you queue early if you want to take your hand luggage on board, as if you are too late in the line they will make you check it into the hold at the last minute. I guess I should have realised that by how early people started queueing and the fact that they charge for checked in luggage."

Pros: "I liked that I got to my destination in one piece."
Cons: "The plane was creaky, there was a ton of turbulence, the flight attendants even got nervous which was very disquieting."

Pros: "The staff was fine. We arrived on time."
Cons: "These discount flights from Luton are packed with obnoxious, drunken Brits going on holiday in Hungary. In future, I will fly from Heathrow. Besides, by the time one pays all the little incidental fees at WizzAir, the cost is about the same as the legacy carriers."

Cons: "I wasn't to bucharest because on the phone the laidy said to me i can travel with my driving license because my id was lost and at the gate they stop me i lost all money from ticket plus transport to airport and back you should refound my money this company is the most worst company in the world"

Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."

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."

Cons: ""Wizard of Oz Airlines" I'm surprised the pilots didn't ask for another hidden fee! Please book a full fair on a major carrier instead of hidden fee fiasco at the airport. headaches before a flight. Keep in mind no wizz staff to talk to before flight or in Budapest. Private contractors from airport do all the check in process and departures."

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."

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."

Cons: "The application doesn't allow to add carrier bag check in and we paid high fee in the airport"

Pros: "I wasn’t even allowed to board because of their huge lack of knowledge And misscommunication"

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 crew and the pilots were very nice!!"

Pros: "Flight to Budapest from Stansted airport took off on time and landed 40 minutes early. The flight home was on schedule and I had an aisle seat both ways, couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Due to the high volume of passengers on the flight we had to put our luggage in the hold (for free) in both directions which caused a minor delay in our onward journey but nothing significant."

Pros: "Good legroom"
Cons: "No pockets in seats Crew training appears inadequate"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Check in, crowds, cramped seats"

Pros: "The price. Period"
Cons: "Legroom non-existent. Sardines have more room in their can."

Pros: "I really appreciated receiving one on one attention to check in on my health status as well as some sparkling water to settle my stomach, and having a bag for nausea. They were incredibly adept at dealing with a potentially sick passenger, and got me a wheelchair to depart the plane."

Pros: "It brought me to my destination"
Cons: "Rude people and very on the defensive. Extra visa check for no reasons. Uncomfortable seats. Don't make you sit next to the person even though you bought the ticket together."

Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "Called to gate only to then have to wait over an hour before boarding. No info given just stood there like lemons. Also they do their upmost to make you pay to sit next to each other! I know they are trying to make as much profit as poss but just annoying."

Pros: "The staff was kind and very helpful"
Cons: "The fees for if you forgot to check-in online was a bit ridiculous..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, no info, bad service on board"

Pros: "Very unorganized and discretion about what was a carry on bag differed. I was charged an extrodinary fee while others did not."

Pros: "Still have not left London"

Cons: "We stood in line for almost 40 minutes with no signs or help from anyone. Finally got to the desk and we were told we Needed to have boarding passes so we needed tonsee customer service. Stood in line for 30 minutes to have the customer service guy charge us to print out boarding passes and that we hadn't checked in. Then sent us back to check boarding passes only to find out we didn't pay for checked luggage. All in all, we arrived 2 hours early only to pay twice as much as our original tickets and barely make our flight. Do your selves a favor and pay the more expensive route, because the cheap tickets were not even remotely worth the hassle."

Pros: "Boarding was reasonably slick. Staff were very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Disembarking was aWful. Flight was packed and the buses from landing site to airport entry were rammed. At least 6 passengers left standing outside the bus for a good 10 minutes with indecisive ground crew pacing, staring and disappearing with no solution until a senior member arrived and squeezed people into the driver's cabin. Seat space is pretty tight. Not the most comfortable. Not a fan of trekking to Stanstead but it was earliest flight so no option but Ryanair"

Pros: "I didn't like anything about the experience"
Cons: "Customer services aren't very helpful have a figure it out attitude. Don't tell you proper information. Not even employees to with customer demand. I will never ride with again!"

Pros: "The ride wasn't bumpy, The pilot was careful and the weather was nice."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Unaware you were not allowed to take coffee on the jet bridge let alone the plane. I guess so you will buy theirs? Wish I had not spent 4 pounds on a coffee they confiscated."

Cons: "I did not like not knowing which gate was being used until 45 minutes prior to boarding. People who are regulars were able to queue up before those of us who did not know where we were heading. The baggage information is confusing; you can not be sure whether or not your bag will get on without a charge, but then when you get to the airport, the charge is greater than it would have been if you had more consisten info to start."

Pros: "Everything, price, knowledge, clean planes, great customer service"

Pros: "Great cabin crew"

Pros: "Food and entertainment was not part of the deal. Fine with me."
Cons: "Everything was fine. 15 minute early arrival."

Cons: "Awful"

Pros: "The team was nice."
Cons: "DELAY on this route is very normal appearance."

Cons: "I'd rather pay more to have a more relaxed experience."

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Tight seating."

Cons: "seats are too crammed and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Love the price"
Cons: "Service can be improved upon"

Pros: "I do not like the idea not able to take my hand luggage on the plane"
Cons: "Timing"

Cons: "Awful checkin staff"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Free snack and 1 water could have been nice"

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"
