Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."
Cons: "Unbelievable waste of time and gross inefficient experience trying to get assistance service for a wheelchair abominable delays wrong numbers and general disconnection between ground services & personnel. No problem in New York with Delta no problem in Barcelona but London was a sad performance."
Pros: "Things were pretty smooth."
Cons: "Could have done without the flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "loved the interactive flight information, movies, and the food and crew were great"
Cons: "Getting through customs in UK and getting luggage tags to Dublin was a nightmare. Took over 2 hours, went through 4 lines to get luggage tags and given misinformation. Poorest travel experience in 40 years of traveling. Brits need to learn how to expedite processing."
Pros: "Not enough information"
Cons: "The flight times went explained properly very missleading"
Cons: "Finding out that I had to pay more for my bag."
Pros: "Kind and caring staff"
Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The unpleasant unhelpful staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 mins"
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food and entertainment are not applicable for this flight as it is too short to need this anyway"
Cons: "Late, no food or drink, confusion at checkin"
Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"
Pros: "A bit late getting started but very nice after that."
Cons: "Must you charge for tea?"
Cons: "That I missed the flight because of Iberia airlines"
Pros: "Boarding clerk was excellent. He was very helpful"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and staff wasn't actively being helpful with information. Got absolutely nothing to drink/eat on the plane-not even a glass of water! The flight crew was just ok, no one "stood out" as good or excellent. Again, nothing about this flight made me want to definitely fly British Airways again."
Pros: "The Aer Lingus staff are brilliant!"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Cons: "It would be nice if someone cared about something. It didn't seem like anyone liked their job or cared about the passengers. All seemed like corporate greed. I have flown over 40,000 miles this year. This was the most unsatisfactory flight. Come on guys, create a good environment for a win win situation. Happy passengers make more money for the corporation in the end."
Pros: "I liked the professionalism of the cede and the cleanliness of the cabin"
Cons: "I was a little frustrated with the delayed start"
Pros: "They got us there."
Cons: "We flew in from San Francisco to London on full-price Business Class tickets. Stupidly, I bought Coach tickets separately for the short leg to Dublin. British Air would not check two bags all the way to Dublin. For one of the bags, we did the measurements, and joined all the other people who haul extra luggage onto the plane for carry-on. For the other bag, sixty-five Pounds Sterling (about eighty-five bucks) for the other bag for a one hour flight. Wow! That put a big damper on the whole flight experience."
Pros: "I really liked how neat & professional the crew were dressed. The plane was new & the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that beverages (like water, juice, coffee) weren't complimentary. All the flights I've been on in the U.S. offer those for free, along with a small snack."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight. It was so short that we didn't even have time to get a drink or snack. Quite a bit of turbulence but I think that might be typical."
Cons: "Gate not given until last minute. The most cramped plane I have ever been on and I’m petite. No complimentary anything."
Cons: "Horrible plane. Sounded like it was on its last legs."
Pros: "Short flight, slept all the way!"
Cons: "Did not eat and no entertainment on this short flight so food and entertainment not applicable."
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Food options were bad"
Pros: "My flight was changed at airport"
Cons: "Barely made flight-- no help offered"
Pros: "The staff onboard the flight was friendly."
Cons: "There was a last minute gate change that was not announced until boarding was closing, so I had to race across to the other side of the airport to catch the plane. There was no food/drinks provided on the flight."
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "Landed over 40 mins ago and still waiting to get off the flight."
Pros: "I did get to Glasgow"
Cons: "Boarding by bus, late, expensive, bag fee, no drink."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the BA planes even for such a short hop, efficient service and fast."
Cons: "Shame the service no longer includes a complimentary snack/drink, especially as the prices have not changed. Doesn't encourage brand loyalty, although on that route BA sadly have the monopoly."
Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"
Pros: "They tried to help me in person by making a phone call to the security gate."
Cons: "Despite the call to security (I guess it was to the security gate? Not sure) it seemed standard the way they spoke, not as if anyone seemed empathetic to my situation as I am a graduate student and was in dire need of returning to Dublin, Ireland for work the following morning. I have had a different experience with different British Airways representatives. The customer service on the phone seemed good, but in person, it just felt like robots following policy unfortunately. I spent $150 for a roundtrip flight and could not use my "Return" portion of my ticket. I arrived to the security gate and I could not be let in. My flight was even delayed which should have allowed me time to scan through security but it did not. My phone is temporarily unavailable as it is in the shop for repair, while I navigate a foreign country without the use of maps or access to email so easily. I checked my email at a random hotel in London for 1.5 hours, and 30 mins after I left, apparently an email was sent by BA to me, alerting me that I could check-in my luggage, instead of having to take it on-board as carry-on. All these details would have been nice to know a little more ahead of time. I wish I could be refunded for my flight, as that was the last flight of the evening, and I ended up having to go to Air Lingus to pay nearly 300 pounds to get on their last flight back to Dublin. As a graduate student, working on my thesis and fulfilling a job here in Ireland as the final leg of my Master's degree, any money saved is a help. Forfeiting half my ticket, and purchasing a new one twice the price of my original was not something I was expecting. I was an emotional wreck getting on-board my other airline's flight. Just not a positive experience that resonated with me overall :( I wish I had more positive insight to share, especially on social media or Yelp about my experience to London and back with BA. Plane was small, and complimentary drinks were not served as every flight I have ever been on in 30 years, and that is several several dozen, have ALWAYS given at least a drink, even if they didn't have peanuts/pretzels. Pretty disappointing.."
Pros: "Quick and easy!"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, plane didn't take off for a long time after boarding."
Cons: "The service was terrible and staff was unpleasant"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "There was no entertainment for that flight."
Pros: "I was exhausted and so was my flight buddy. The staff was helpful and quietc and got us on board and to our destination without us having to think which was great."
Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"
Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"
Cons: "Not to fly with Ryan air which I won’t be!"
Pros: "Nothing, DO NOT flybw this airline"
Cons: "They charged me 220 pounds at the counter for boarding passes"
Pros: "The cost was the big plus on this flight."
Cons: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Pros: "Quick easy and cheap"
Cons: "I had to pay for priority 2 bags only because I didn't want to check my small carry on - frustrating. I was told I needed a paper copy ticket, couldn't get one until exactly 2 hours before my flight according to the ticket agent. I waited patiently while many others checked in (later to see those same people on my flight who clearly checked in before the 2 hours), but then found out from a different ticket agent that I didn't need a paper copy ticket, so I waited there for no reason due to misinformation from your ticket agent. My flight was delayed twice, then they lined us up at the wrong gate. After scanning our tickets, the door wouldn't open to let us out to the airplane, then they lined us up outside the plane in freezing cold winds because they were still cleaning the plane-the guy was still taking the trash out. Where is the "priority" in that? I know I really only paid to not have to check my bag, but it's also called priority - not quite sure they understood that. Will probably never travel this airline again, too much hassle and frustration for such simple things."
Pros: "Got there on time"
Cons: "It's Ryanair - a thoroughly unlikeable airline."
Pros: "The trip was smooth once we got a plane. Everything else was as ecpected."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and finally departed 2 hours late. Interrupted a full day’s worth of travel plans."
Pros: "The flight arrived without crashing. 100% survival rate."
Cons: "Cattle call. Couldn’t check in early. No gate announcement until 15 minutes before boarding closed, so had to wait in central area then rush to gate. No policing of unruly gate area. Seated in middle seat that didn’t recline. Had to check in via app prearrival at airport to avoid £55 fee per person. Basically the UK version of Spirit Airlines, but worse."
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "I purchased Priority in order to have a carry-on, and even though the carry-on was fine for my first flight, they forced me to check it and pay 40 pounds for my second flight. Then the flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connection and completely ruining my entire travel day. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE LOW RATES. YOU WILL END UP LOSING MONEY."
Cons: "Plane arrived late, took off 1.5hrs after plan and arrived late in Dublin There was no tea, beer or wine. Most of the food was not available"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "We were charged almost 200 euros extra because we did not check in online (which we could not do because we had been traveling for 30 hours and did not have Wi-Fi in the air) and when we went to check in the receptionist was rude about the fact that we had not checked in, so we had to go across to a different counter to pay our fee, go back to check in at the first counter, and then was told we could not be seated together, when it turned out the flight was half empty. Besides all of this, the planes are not nice, you are only allowed one carry on (no personal item) and the seats are not comfortable. I thought we would save money but check in fees and ridiculous baggage fees made this flight cost more than a nicer airline."
Cons: "From now on I will pay a little bit more money to have a more comfortable flight. The aircraft Ryanair is employing is easily a couple decades old, and is incredibly cramped. The whole aircraft felt rickety as it rocketed through the sky. Our flight boarded an hour late (not the fault of the airline) and when we got on the plane the crew members hardly smiled and were very grumpy. That's the last time I try to save a quick buck on a cheaper airline."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3.5 hours"
Pros: "You can load and unload from the plane on both ends."
Cons: "They do not offer a complimentary drink and small snack for any flights, short or long. Anything other than a seat comes with a price tag."
Cons: "the fact my flight time was changed and no-ne told me!"
Pros: "Customer service was horrifying"
Pros: "Our experience with Ryan Air was a nightmare! We liked nothing about the experience!!"
Cons: "We were charged for them to print our boarding passes. We were charged 50 pounds per person because we hadn't checked in online, despite our having done so. We had a change in plans so had to change our flight time after we had booked back in February. . Ryan Air charges more to rebook a flight than the initial cost of the booking, so we just bought another ticket. I will never book on this airline again."
Cons: "Flights ended up being close to or more expensive because of baggage charges. Also, the length of the terminal to board downstairs off the tarmac is ridiculous for an older couple such as we are. The only good thing was (a) a polite airport employee who got us a wheelchair; (b) a second boarding door for rear section seats."
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Went to checkin desk and told to straight to security. Walked to the other end of the airport only to discover our preprinted boarding passes would read at security. Had to lug all our bags back to the Ryan desk, wait in a long line, and get new boarding passes. Then lug our bags back across the airport to security and FINALLY the gate. Don't assume your print at home boarding passes will work."
Pros: "Fast efficient service no problems"
Pros: "We were not called"
Cons: "We missed the flight due to not being called over the tannoy and the next flight was 710pm and was another £200, also it meant that we missed the show that we were booked in for as it was a birthday present for today. Staff on the ryannaire desk was not very friendly or understanding to our situation."
Pros: "everything on this flight went like clockwork the flight left on time and the crew onboard were really helpful and pleasant"
Pros: "The crew were really friendly and helpful. It was painless, quick, and easy :)"
Pros: "crew very professional and friendly and boarding was quick and efficient.."
Cons: "flight price extortionate......flight delayed by over an hour resulting in me missing my bus connection and having to wait 2 hrs at airport"
Cons: "Allocation of seats saw my wife in 5c and myself in 31d. 31e was vacant."
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"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful cabin staff"
Cons: "Really cramped seating :-("
Pros: "Quick and easy .. flights bang on time, Return flight very 20 mins ahead , Nice staff"
Cons: "Ridiculous overpriced snack menu. Sandwiches etc.. And coffee not good too expensive.. Let's you down.!"
Pros: "The fact that it got me to Dublin."
Cons: "After having all my liquids taken at security from my carry-on (which had been just fine on all other legs of my trip over) Ryanair decides that they are too full for me to take my bag on board, so they made me check it. When I requested that I get the bag back at the gate, they said no. It had to be checked through to baggage claim. This meant that in Dublin I had to go back to get my bag downstairs and go through security twice more. Exactly what I wanted to avoid. I had a very tight connection to the US. It was horrible! I purposely packed light for a 16 day trip!! It would've been helpful if they had let me gate check it. I won't fly them again."
Pros: "Price Ok flight Boarding was fine"
Cons: "Crumbs on seats and wrappers on floor 1:10 minutes late to depart"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Would like people boarded according to their seats. Putting the carry on baggage away is disruptive to steady flow of taking seats. So if front and back doors board call in middle 10 rows first."
Pros: "Lovely new plane lots of room"
Cons: "Bumpy landing"
Pros: "Easy boarding (by boarding both ends of the plane at the same time it speeds things up). Cheap!"
Pros: "Missed as flight from.larnaca was cancelled"
Pros: "Punctuality, cheery crew, decent leg room compared to some other airlines, inability to recline seats (great!)."
Cons: "Lack of seat-back pocket in front for book, newspaper etc."
Pros: "Low fare. Efficient check in process."
Cons: "Long walk to the gate. No ramp into the plane from the gate. No escalator. You have to go down the stairs and walk to the plane to board."
Cons: "Did not used.mistake on the date of flight purchase. Explained to Ryanair the day of purchase for change to the date.no change nor refund of my money. Free money to Ryanair. Bad experience for me. Thanks"
Pros: "It was a steady flight"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "Ticket Price!"
Cons: "Luggage fee was as much as the ticket!"
Pros: "Flight was problem free. A few delays when boarding but hardly any time delay overall. Seats were comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly. Time from start to finish was unbelievably quick."
Cons: "Not applicable as everything was fine and problem free."
Cons: "No one knew where the boarding gate was."
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."
