Cons: "Late , last moment announcement that my flight from Toulouse to Milano was cancelled ( Friday evening ) with proposal to take instead a flight departing only after two days ( Sunday evening ), when there were solutions arriving in Milano Saturday morning ( but yes, with another companies). Completely unreliable if you fly for work and have to be somewhere at a certain hour."

Pros: "Nothing, staff didnt even attempt to help me once i eventually for the gate for easyjet and the gate had closed (due to staff telling me to go to departures after showing that i didnt have a boarding pass)"
Cons: "The lack of help recieved by staff throughout the airport to help me get to the correct gate. After 30 mins of asking different staff where to go and what i needed to do to get on the flight the gate for my flight was then closed which has caused me to pay for an extra flight. Due to this i will be requesting a full refund on the first flight."
Pros: "Fast easy hoarding. Friendly staff"
Pros: "Not much. I think anything we liked was about the airport staff, not the easy jet staff. The customer service lady was efficient, but not helpful and kind of rude and all she kept saying was “well everyone else made it”. The plane was also not full (I believe she said 60 people, maybe 58 not including us)."
Cons: "The plane was departing at 8:25 and boarding at 7:55 according to the ticket. At 7:57 there was no gate announced for the flight yet, so we went to the bathroom, came out and saw our gate and headed there. We got the gate wrong, but were only about 5 mins out of the way, so me and my 70 year old grandmother ran through the terminals and we got to the correct gate at 8:16 (less than 20 minutes from the time the gate was announced) and they would not let us on. Easy Jet’s policy (which we have a picture of) is that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure, but we did not even have a gate until less than 20 minutes from the departure. We did not hear them announce our names or last call (until the minute before we got there, and it did not seem like if they would have let us on if we were one minute earlier either). After this whole ordeal and being at the airport on time and through security in time, we went to talk to the check-in person to see what we should do. We stood in line and did not get called up (3 people did not have customers but were not calling me up), so I asked and one girl reluctantly said I could see her. As I was telling her what happened, she got a phone call, answered it in the middle of my explanation, and then chatted for a few minutes with another coworker about who was working and who was going on lunch when. After she hung up, she looked annoyed at me, and I told her again what happened, and she said she could help and to go to customer service. At customer service, we asked to see if we could get on the next flight which wasn’t leaving for over 7.5 hours, which they said we could but would have to purchase our tickets and luggage all over again. The person working was mostly professional, fairly efficient, but pretty callous overall. On top of all this, when they pulled our luggage off the flight (somehow they can board a flight of 60 ish people and still have time to remove our luggage), they pulled one of the wrong suitcases off so we had to go collect our luggage at or destination, and someone else went luggage-less. Ultimately, my grandmother’s first European trip and this was the worst experience we’ve had so far, but after $200, 6 hours, and tears from both of us, we made it to our destination and will never fly Easy Jet again."
Pros: "Very efficient. Staff helpful."
Cons: "Extra cost for hold luggage"
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: "Flight was fine - thank you"
Pros: "the crew was amazing. all of them were very helpful and smiling all the time"
Cons: "no pillows and blankets and seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Ok everything"
Cons: "I was not allowed to board by the gate crew member, as my passport expiration date was approx 4 days short of the 3 months buffer that I apparently needed to have. I was not aware of this rule, and when my reservation was accepted by EasyJet with knowledge of my passport expiration, I should have been alerted. I was even provided the boarding pass several days before the flight so there was no indication that anything was amiss. I was able to enter France by taking a train and had no issues with French immigration. My only problem was with the EasyJet gate crew member who refused to allow me to board."
Cons: "Food choice"
Cons: "Speedy boarding is shambolic"
Pros: "Almost everything I saw was smooth, friendly, and easy. Polite staff, pleasant plane time, etc."
Cons: "My Geneva to London (Stansted) flight was delayed. While there were at least two other Easy Jet planes which could have taken me to London due to no-shows, the staff told me the flight lists were lost. So I got home 4 hours late, and two Easy Jet flights landed in London with empty seats. Even if the flight is fully booked, please implement a stand-by list so passengers in this common situation can fly in the place of no shows. The poor review is because of this failure and because Easy Jet got me home 4 hours late. Otherwise pleased."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed. No in flight service."
Pros: "Crew and plane were good"
Cons: "Why do they call us to the gate and then stop us from walking to the plane for ages."
Cons: "Would like to be able to take two bags on the plane."
Pros: "Very helpful friendly staff would definitely be using them again"
Cons: "I liked the ease of use on the website,once I arrived there friendly staff from start to finish which helped the flight go by so much better"
Pros: "Staff were especially helpful at the check-in desk, ushering us straight through as we had three small children."
Cons: "Had to stand even whilst the plane pushed back waiting for staff to deal with fitting a child seat for the row in front that ultimately they were unable to achieve. At no point, even after they had failed to fit the seat, did they say it was ok for me or two of my children to sit back down. All attention was on the passengers they were dealing with directly."
Pros: "speed of flight and friendliness of the cabin crew"
Pros: "Was inexpensive. Very friendly staff. Easy trip"
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike but i wish there was more organization when it came to the flight delay and the boarding process."

Cons: "Service can be improved upon"
Pros: "I do not like the idea not able to take my hand luggage on the plane"

Pros: "Exellent start and landing! Bravo pilots!"
Cons: "Checking opened 20 minutes late and lengthy queues through security meantwe had no time to grab food/shopping as we had to rush to gate as no notifications that our flight was actually delayed by an hour. Everyone was herded onto buses to wait there for some reason rather than at gate"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Staff where nice and flight was on time"
Cons: "I flu with my baby 18months and my partner, we were sat separately which didn’t help me at all as my child just kept asking and crying for her dad. No space to put her on my lap as she is a lap child."
Cons: "We did not realize that we had to check in within a minimum of 2 hours before the flight or else you have to pay this ridiculous fee. They were unable to do anything us at the counter and we had to go to this separate line that was very line in order to pay this massive fee. Their emails were not clear on this policy at all and you should be able to do it at the Ryanair counter vs go to another line. It was very convoluted and not a great customer experience. I wish somebody warned me of this policy as we almost missed an entire day in Santorini."
Pros: "New plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Very late service. Crew forgot about our row during the drinks service. Usual chaos from Ryanair's aggressive seating policy although people managed to swap themselves around to sit together. This wasted more time of course."
Pros: "Nothing! Terrible airline and so inefficient"
Cons: "Waited over an hour to board while we stood in line for this ! Stayed an additional 45 mins after landing for our luggage to drop. Horrible horrible airline"
Pros: "new plane"
Cons: "they forced me to check in my small han luggage even though i would have put it under my seat which does not disturb anybody and wors with every other airline. + 1h delay without information. result: I was home at 1am in the morning instead of 11h30."

Cons: "Too many passes with food & drink"
Pros: "Excellent value for money!!!"
Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"
Cons: "Don’t like the underhand Ryanair pricing"
Pros: "all airline staff caring and helpful"
Cons: "i realize you're a budget airline, but the flight was horrible. the seats were incredibly uncomfortable, and i could not recline them. the smell of the toilet was present in the entire plane. beverages (coffee, tea and water) should be provided for free, especially water. there was absolutely no organization in the airport in sofia, everyone just pushed and shoved to board. very poor experience."
Pros: "The height"
Cons: "The screaming baby"
Pros: "on time quick boarding from both ends of the plane friendly staff"
Pros: "The make cabin crew had such a strong accent and spoke so fast that no one on the plane could barely understand a word he said during any of the announcements. He made no effort to slow it down and speak clearer"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Always travel Ryan air when possible just returned from Italy having flown with them so was disappointed when we were just left hanging around with this flight"

Pros: "Not many things, I have got to the destination in one piece"

Pros: "Got extra legroom sitting in the Emergency Exit"
Cons: "Pretty much everything."
Pros: "One crew member was genuinely nice!"
Cons: "Ryanair have found yet another way to squeeze some money out of you - book two or more tickets together and rather than sitting together, they'll ensure you are randomly allocated seats away from each other! Of course for some extra money, you can "enjoy" sitting together. Pathetic."
Pros: "Simple online check in; short ride; arrived on time."
Cons: "We waited on line for over 30 min before boarding; no food or beverages were offered and the plane was not equipped for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unable to check in to flight online and charged an additional 60 euros per person at airport just to check into flight. Charged another 60 euros per bag despite fitting in the bag check dimensions at gate. Extremely rude agents at the gate. AVOID THIS AIRLINE."
Pros: "Fast efficient service no problems"
Pros: "Nice easy flight. Staff were up and down with food and drinks."
Cons: "Ryanair is the single worst airline I have experienced in 46 years of flying on more than 80 airlines from many countries. I will not ever fly them again, regardless of cost."
Pros: "Meeting my seat mate!"
Cons: "Drunken rowdies from Ireland going to Amsterdam took over the cabin with obnoxious, vulgar behavior...fueled by the cabin staff selling the drunken crowd even more alcohol! One poor passenger had a seizure on the way to the runway and was subjected to their reticule! They should have been removed!"
Cons: "its the first time and no more the worst airlane"
Pros: "Ease of booking, checking in and boarding."
Cons: "Nothing on this trip."
Cons: "The actual airport in Santorini is a zoo and everything takes far longer than it should. There are countless lines to wait in and huge inefficiencies in the way they operate. This causes frustration but Ryan Air only added to that tenfold. They nickel and dime their customers for everything including charging 62 Euro for in person check in. They then charge for overweight and oversized bags but these are based on their unorthodox weight and size restrictions. The worst part of all of this is that after going through 3 lines, you then find out your bag is too big and are forced to go back to the gate agent to start the process over. The flight left late because of these delays. This airline is a joke and I would not recommend flying with them to my worst enemy!"
