Airline reviews

Pros: "Good price , good career"

Cons: "Flight was about an hour late taking off"

Cons: "Nada de entretenimiento, nada"

Cons: "While we arrived on time there was no air bridge ready.We had to wait for 15min to connect the air bridge. This was very frustrating and seems to be a common problem as it was also the same scenario on the out bound flight to London which then caused me to miss my transatlantic flight as Aerlingus delayed the flight leaving Dublin plus air bridge problem"

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Made me check my carryon bag then it was opened - why - don’t know - and items missing along with my luggage strap. Will NEVER use Aer Lingus again"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Gate unknown till last minute"

Pros: "Waiting ages at another carousel from NY flight meant that I missed the booked flight and had to pay another $60.00. This was efficiently done...but notice about bags being taken off roundabout would help.I thought it was a tour groups's and did not search for my missing bag ...Young woman in the Air linguis Dublin baggage office sweet and patient ...give her a raise."
Cons: "The enormous distance between getting off one plane and trying to get on to another ...some signage confusing re Internal direction to Terminal 2"

Cons: "Still have not received a credit they owe me."

Pros: "You lost myluhgage. I have no clean clothes to ware"

Pros: "Staff and service"

Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"
Cons: "seats... no space menu.... skip it movie choice ... fair at best"

Cons: "I had a changeable ticket but could only do so a 1counter. Missed earlier flight as a result. Terrible service. At Dublin airport going out they let me change at the gate. Bot not in Heathrow."

Pros: "Really comfortable seat"
Cons: "Had to divert to Shannon due to fig. Bussed in FREEZING ancient vehicle to Cork"

Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."

Pros: "Friendly helpful crew"

Pros: "Cold air was on for the entire flight, despite it being 4 degrees outside"

Cons: "Broken seats, headphone socket not working, smell of aviation fuel in cabin and then our luggage did not arrive at our final destination."

Pros: "Not much to tell."
Cons: "Long walk to gate. Getting from terminal 5 to terminal 2 on a bus."

Pros: "no delays, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants went right past us never asking if we wanted anything. They served the people to our right and in front of us. Mystifying."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "First time I flew with Aer Lingus and can't say I will do it again. Didn't realize I was flying across continents in such a small plane. The flight attendants were barely civil; the bin above me housed supplies and on more than one occasion an attendant with visibly wet armpits leaned over me without nary an excuse me."

Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"

Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Last persons rubbish left in Seat pockets"

Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"

Cons: "My issue has more to do with after the flight, than the actual flight. My luggage was lost somehow between Heathrow and Shannon. The lack of communication I received from Aer Lingus, and the length of time it took for me to get the luggage was a bit ridiculous. I was never told what happened to the luggage and I was given the timeline to receive my luggage within 24 hours. Well it took over 48 hours to get the luggage. I was given specific timeframes to call the Shannon Airport Aer Lingus luggage desk, which I followed. Had to leave a message every time, and not once was it returned. The only communication I did get was calling the Shannon Airport directly and working with their employees. I could tell they were frustrated with me, which is completely understandable, because they weren't the appropriate people to communicate with. I was just very disappointed in the customer service."

Pros: "Punctuality and cost"

Pros: "Quiet, short"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time, no fuss, got us there"

Pros: "The window seat."
Cons: "No Guiness"

Pros: "The effort made by the flight crew to find someone who was willing to switch their emergency exit seat with my cramped seat."
Cons: "Seating was really a disgrace. Being 6'3" made it unbearable. Seats are way too narrow and leg room non existent. Especially if the person in front of you reclined their seat."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Delay at Dublin waiting for plane to get parked"

Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Reservations"

Pros: "Flight attendant was delightful."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight even though little floor space."
Cons: "Small seats. Not much legroom."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The price and convenience was great, airline was well kept with minor technology issues. Restroom facilities were well kept and food was adequate (what airline food is really good?) turbulent flight but the pilot did a goood job maneuvering around."
Cons: "The headsets provided for international movies sound quality was very poor.my daughter and I found ourselves using a single prong (airline headsets require two one for each ear)headphones from our phone to listen to movies with only one in. One flight attendant was not pleasant and wound up spilling a full cup of water on my lap, followed by another hitting me with the food cart. I am a frequent traveler so for me this shouldn't sway anyone's opinion on a minor instance."

Cons: "Professional staff"

Pros: "Everything went surprisingly smooth. Coffee was good, but had to pay for it"
Cons: "Didn't try the food"

Cons: "No TSA precheck Confusing check-in based on counter location and inexperienced agents."

Pros: "Air crew are very friendly and welcoming."

Pros: "Everyone is so nice!"

Cons: "Lots of the movies were old and not much of kid movies."

Pros: "The airport security was very quick. Much better than on our way to Dublin from Chicago."

Cons: "The staff was more interested in selling things than providing service. Not friendly or helpful. Didn't' even offer hot drinks in the morning. Audio on the movies was poor."

Pros: "Efficient, friendly service (no surly attendants)."

Pros: "All Aerlingus employees were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Very smooth flight."

Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "Staff at airport were rude"

Pros: "Friendly and professional staff."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You think you are getting a good deal when you buy the ticket but they get you for everything. Our tickets where 30 euros and by the time we were done paying all their fees for baggage and printinh tickets we were up over 300!! If you don't print your ticket before you get there they charge you $45 for each one! That's more than our flight cost. On top of that you have to stand in one line to get a slip for baggage then another line to pay the fee and then go back to the original line to drop the bags. This was the worst experience we've ever had. I will not be flying Ryair ever again."

Pros: "Right price, good aeroplane, 2nd item of hand luggag"
Cons: "2 hours late Made to go to holding pen, even though the incoming plane hadn't taken off Ground crew severely understaffed No toilet or food facilities in holding pen Not enoughseats in pen Drip fed inaccurate and ambitious information In flight crew give information but spoke so fast and in such poor English they could not be understood"

Pros: "Love the crews of Ryan Air!"
Cons: "I wish that there was at least water for free."

Cons: "Late, with very little communication by the Gatwick staff."

Cons: "All of it. Plane was filthy. Service at Gatwick was TERRIBLE for everything about Ryanair. Surprised you'd even be ballsy enough to ask for feedback."

Pros: "Short Flight"
Cons: "Delay of nearly two hours Unhelpful flight crew"

Cons: "When we arrived at eh queue for boarding the line was a bit serpentine since no staff was there to keep straight. This was okay until another group came into the area and then it was a disaster. i went to the desk to seek help and was abruptly told don't worry it will be sorted out. Never was and as a result people who had arrived early then ended up back in the lien and were forced to check carry on luggage. Ryan needs to set up a person at the entry lines as there are up to 7 flights that could be queuing at the same time . Not good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed boarding for an hour, no information was given as to why there was a delay or what time the flight would leave."

Pros: "Not much."

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew seemed professional, though I had no need of it for any reason. I never eat airplane food if I can avoid it. I never use airplane entertainment; I read the materials that I've brought with me. As everyone says, your price is unbeatable"
Cons: "Gatwick security was the rudest that I have ever encountered. I am 62 and - as I've lived in five countries, and have traveled to forty five - have taken more than a hundred flights. I've never seen such arrogance. They treated many if not all of us as if we were about to commit a crime - and they wanted to make sure that we knew that they knew. . . . And to make sure that we offered not even a protest at being treated so poorly. Can someone talk to them about the need for civility - let alone politeness?"

Pros: "Flight empty, crew good."

Pros: "Everything was okay."
Cons: "I requested for assistance, for my little brother ( 1st time in Uk) Now this days they don’t got one because of Covid 19"

Pros: "Bought a seat 3 hours before check in and had a row to myself"
Cons: "Excellent Ryanair flight. 75% full. Very friendly crew."

Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aeroplano"

Pros: "Actually getting on board!"
Cons: "The fact that something was clearly wrong before we started to go outside and when it was raining we were left outside with no apology at all and when we boarded the communication/apologies were scant"

Pros: "getting off"
Cons: "filthy plane, confused staff, cattle truck class. I bet people got comfier rides to aushvits. if only there were national carrier flying my route"

Cons: "Plane was late as most Ryanair flights in the afternoon are expected to be."

Pros: "While the movies choices were limited and the quality not that great, the price was not large either."

Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "My wife was not allowed to board the flight. because her passport expires in april, we was told by ryanair in a phone call that this would not be a problem,then when she tried to board she was refused. thanks ryanair you cost us a lot of money and caused a lot of stress. you just lost another customer. why not make it clear that a person needs 90 days on their passport if you are going to enforce these purile rules."

Cons: "Diverted"

Cons: "Delayed an hour."

Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "Waiting in hallway and then tarmac to board."

Pros: "Nice peeps"
Cons: "Obnoxious passenger on board"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Lateness and the waiting in the area to board with about 6 other flights in a small area with confusing announcements"

Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap!"
Cons: "I find it incredibly ridiculous that a flight is half full and I’m deliberately seated away from my husband just so Ryan Air can make an extra £4 per seat. I get that they want to make money but that’s pushing it too far. I sat next to someone who was also traveling with someone else. That lady’s companion came back and told her the seat next to her was empty. By then everyone was already settled in. Is it really worth the £8 for two people? I’m sorry but that’s just petty."

Pros: "All is great. Just tired after a long day...."

Pros: "Airport OK. Efficient service. On time arrival."
Cons: "Gate area bit narrow and clumsy. Walk to plane. Deposit your own bag on large trolley outside plane due to opportunistic charging policy of RyanAir. Seat basic no recline. No seat pockets. No wifi. Still paying £200 return.."

Pros: "we did not receive the boading check in pass even we did an online check in and end up we have to pay 55pounds extra"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "All is well"
Cons: "More destination"

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

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."

Cons: "The plane was faulty so we had to change aircrafts and ended up leaving 2.5hours later than scheduled"

Pros: "Cheap and got to Madrid 15 mins early. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Early Sunday fligh... took 30 mins to queue from motorway to Stansted terminal. If were checking in bag there was a big queue too (I didn't need to). The slowest part was airport security, allow extra 20 minutes at least to get through. Did priority boarding so we didn't queue to board and sat together and had room for our bags (some ended up at feet or in hold)"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "6 hour delay. 5 euro voucher - that could only buy water. But worse than that was the staff on board. Their rudeness was beyond belief. They: - Stood next to me and bitched about their job and people on board the flight - Laughed about a girl in front of me and her weight - Yelled at me for having my laptop open at the start of our decent (rather than ask me to close it) - Did not apologies once for the delay (which meant I missed a family members birthday) A formal complaint will be written."

Pros: "The air crew were excellent"
Cons: "Communications around boarding and gates was chaotic and our take off was delayed for over an hour. Staff were rude and unhelpful. They seemed confused themselves and found it difficult to communicate anything helpful to passengers"

Cons: "They took my cabin luggage to the cargo even though it is the right size due to no more space in over head compartment and I believe if they where strict about the size with the All Pax and only allowed one price each in the hand the compartments would have been sufficient. You need to make sure to ask pax to be at check in desk 2 hrs before dept during peak periods due to security takes longer time make the story short I was happy with the above all standards Abdullah Benafif."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Allocation of seats saw my wife in 5c and myself in 31d. 31e was vacant."

Pros: "Still have not left London"

Pros: "There is nothing to like about flying RyanAir"
Cons: "No legroom, seats are cramped. £100 for 1x 20kg bag and £56 to reserve 2 seats. £2 payment charge in order for me to give them money... No entertainment Delayed inexplicably for an hour on the taxiway - no reason given. There aren't even seat-back pockets. Truly awful flight."

Pros: "Ryanair compares well with a lot more expensive airlines. It's not perfect by any means but it offers excellent value for money."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding, I had priority boarding pass..I was so confused where to go"

Pros: "legs space"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Everyone, EVERYTHING, horrible customer service!!!"

Pros: "Just everything was so easy and straight forward. No issues and no hassles"

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Walking through endless sales & loud music to get to airplane"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole experience. Everyone we interacted with was just not nice or appreciative."
