Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "flight delayed by more than 1 hour"
Cons: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pros: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Clean enough"
Cons: "Charged £60 for hold luggage because the airline’s unstable website wouldn’t allow me to book in advance (£20 extra in the airport). Plane was delayed because they were late allowing passengers to board and missed the runway slot. Seats were uncomfortable - it was an older airframe."
Pros: "The added touches make all the difference! We didn’t expect free food and was delighted to receive breakfast. The chairs were much more comfortable than any other plane I’ve been on due to the adjustable head rest, and as a regular flyer to Cyprus, this made a difference. The sweets served just before landing is an excellent idea and something that we do need due to our ears, so this was appreciated. staff were attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "To have the menu and duty free booklet at the beginning of the flight would have been helpful."
Pros: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"

Cons: "7hour delayin onnecting flight! Seats on plane torn and very uncomfortable, meal booked but no food available."
Pros: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Cons: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."

Pros: "The flight went well."
Cons: "Bag drop off was terrible and stressful. We arrived 2.5 Hours early to drop the ONE suitcase and have brunch. We queued for 1.5 Hours to then be blocked as all six counters were given over to another flight and people who arrived LATER then us for our flight got to go first. It was incredibly stressful and frustrating especially when I checked in online before arriving at the airport. We had to rush and run through the airport and board at final call. In fact it would put me off flying with Blue Air again."

Pros: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Cons: "Lack of leg room ."
Cons: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."

Pros: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Cons: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"
Pros: "staff very friendly and polite ..airplane wasnt full so i get the chance to have a nice fly with my 2 little sons"

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The crew is very good"
Pros: "All was very efficient, food and drink a nice surprise"

Pros: "Overall in this trip from DUB to Romania (CLJ) was the direct connection bringing us close to where we planned our holiday."
Cons: "..with regards to the airline and usage of the word low-cost that is far away from being low-cost. No food served on-board, long waiting times in the bus from terminal to airplane. Would not go with them again. Big disappointment again, but guess that's how it goes in Romania."
Pros: "EverY things"
Cons: "Every things"
Pros: "The agent at check-in was kind."

Pros: "Nothing, really"
Cons: "Baggage fee €50 payable in cash only. Boarding was a stockyard experience. Gates are remote and obscure. €2.5 for diet Pepsi on board??!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Poor on board shopping options"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Old and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Poor customer service, outdated plane, uncomfortable seats, didn’t turn lights down until well after midnight. Hardly slept due to screaming babies and loud toilet flushes. Cold stewardesses and inedible food. Just an awful experience."

Cons: "Flight left an hour late, cabin was very hot."
Pros: "Quick boarding , left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Having to pay $60 for a suitcase and not getting a reminder that i needed to pay for the luggage in order to save $30. Other passengers had two suitcases that were treated as carryon and they were not. I am still trying to figure out a way to check in my luggage for my departing trip."
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "A sick/drunk/unfit person delayed the take off for 1 hour, and absolutely nobody informed the rest of the passengers about the situation. We all saw her but no idea what was going on. The aircraft is old, without personal entertainment (Air Europa provided free Wi-Fi to browse a small selection of content though)."
Pros: "Reasonably priced, nice clen plane, no hassels"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "Aggressive, offensive, regimented staff almost strip searched people to assure no one violated their carry on ( one item, no purse) rule. We fortunately complied, but they humiliated an entire family for minor violations"
Cons: "A two-hour fog delay in London assured me that I wouldn't make my connecting flight to New York. Both the Air Europa desk attendants at the airport and the customer service agent on the phone took no action, telling me simply that they would take responsibility in Madrid, where I had a layover. Sure enough, I missed the connection, and the Air Europa staff in Madrid were even less helpful, showing practically no problem-solving ability and even less empathy. In the end, I couldn't leave Madrid until 24 hours later and had to cancel half of my weekend plans in New York, frustrating friends and family who were expecting me. Overall, this was a nightmare experience. The indifference shown by Air Europa staff was outrageous."
Cons: "Very unorganised"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "The flight was great overall. The staff was super friendly and they kept coming around with water and tea. My seat was comfy and I slept a lot."
Cons: "This was a pretty long flight, but the seats did not have individual screens for entertainment like on most international planes. Instead, there were a few large screens in the center aisles but the shows were not in English and you had no personal choice of what to watch."
Pros: "My baggage didnt arrive"
Pros: "Air Europa honored my SkyTeam Elite Status!"
Pros: "New clean TV"
Cons: "Entertainment good on my short flight I was wathing a show and an advertisement about EA came on and lasted way too long and I could not move back to my show at wull."
Pros: "Great prices without feeling herded."
Cons: "Boarding could have been easier. Back of the plane should board before the front of the plane. Also, don't let people at the back, use the space at the front. Use the space above your own seat!"
Pros: "Air Europa is the worst airline I ever used. Rude flight attendants. Food was awful. Old and outdated aircraft without tv screens on a 10 hours flight. Never again."
Cons: "Air Europa is the worst airline I ever used. Rude flight attendants. Food was awful. Old and outdated aircraft without tv screens on a 10 hours flight. Never again."
Pros: "Brand new plane"
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "OK for a short flight"
Cons: "The fact that a 8 hour flight doesnt have any sort of entertainment for the guest's or the ability to charge your own entertainment devices is absurd."
Cons: "The boarding procedure need to improve."
Pros: "Entertainment and the airplane itself was awesome, very please with the overall experience."
Cons: "The food quality was pretty bad. Also, they would make you start the line to board, but we wouldn't start boarding for another 15 minutes, so the lines took extremely long."
Cons: "Food. Enterteinment."
Pros: "Nothing. Totally dissatisfied."
Cons: "They could have made a better effort to get me on that plane in London. After the facts unfolded, I got the impression it was a race thing."
Pros: "The movies I watched"
Cons: "The time it took to board the plane- we also had depressed seats. I will never fly air Europa again."
Cons: "The hour plus delay that caused me to miss connection"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The checking in/boarding process was absolutely horrible. Attempted to check in through their app to avoid the extremely long line and it wouldn't accept our passport numbers. After finally receiving our boarding passes, the kiosk for our flight read "Gate Closed" and it seemed to be miles away. We got to the airport well in advanced, but due to the long line and fear of missing the flight, we didn't have time to shop at duty free or get food within the airport."
Pros: "I arrived."
Cons: "No entertainment. My husband's system was missing buttons. The person on the next row couldn't lower table. Might need maintenance. My husband and I paid for upgraded seats but they were given away. We had to fight to sit together. Not very happy."
Pros: "Convenience - nonstop to/from Madrid"
Cons: "Food, entertainment (lack of), comfort"
Cons: "The staff was not professional and extremely rude. After the flights were delayed and canceled...they were not accomodating and staff barely could speak my language English. It was very terrifying not being able to get help all alone in a foreign country."
Cons: "I did not like having to go through security procedures twice nor in the long walks both at Gatwick, Madrid and, worst, the mess at Miami International airport mile long walk and shambles of a passport control"
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "I got "upgraded" to first class. Where the spacing between seats was smaller than USA economy seating. After jamming my knees in I was told being upgraded didn't entitle me to free food or drinks. Yup wanted to charge for a bag of peanuts. Adding insult to injury takes about an hour to get your bag when you finally get off."
Pros: "A nice short flight from Barcelona to Madrid. No complaints."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report."
Cons: "Not enough legroom! Flight attendants did not seem interested"
Pros: "The seats are nice and fluffy which allowed me to sleep really well. The crew didn't bug me while I slept"

Cons: "No Food, no entertainment"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy flying with this company!"

Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "The people were great - easy check-in and boarding. The plane was nice."
Pros: "The flight was good along with the food, entertainment and staff."
Cons: "Overall the flight was good but we were delayed due to a spill behind the plane. Unfortunately during the delay we were stuck inside the airplane with no air for some time until it was turned on. Also the restrooms need to be checked more often as they became very dirty mid flight and toilet paper and hand towels ran out."
Pros: "I liked the service, the crew make efforts to serve well to the travelers. they always smile and try to be nice. The food is not free, so the qualification. Also no entertainment system, no sound"
Cons: "the seat rows are too close. So is very difficult to rest. I suppose this is because of the price. Is a short trip so it ends fast."
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: "The price is extremely misleading as they charge almost as much a ticket per luggage."

Cons: "Cannot think of anything"
Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "Nothing , I travel with Ryanair because of the Cheap price"

Pros: "Fast and cheap. Clean."
Cons: "Seats too small."
Pros: "Almost evrything."
Cons: "the way of embarquement."
Pros: "I wasn't allowed to fly as the Scottish government said non essential travel wasn't allowed and I wasn't allowed the opportunity to get a voucher for my flight"
Cons: "Seeing as I wasn't allowed to fly l could have been offered a voucher or someone at Ryanair help could have answered my question about my flight"

Pros: "Really disappointed"
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Late boarding and twenty minutes late taking off then no staff to meet the plane when it landed in Stansted for 40 minutes so I missed the train I was booked on which cost me more than the return flight to renew my train ticket"
Cons: "Having to now pay and queue for cabin baggage is treating customers like dirt. Flight was one hour late to Dublin so missed my connection. Best not flying with this crowd in future."
Pros: "I booked and pey 83.5 € and when I want to get a boarding Rayan air get 55€ agin!!!!!! What has happened there?!"
Cons: "They don’t accept credit cards from USA."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight had group of youngsters who should not have been allowed on flight. They displayed rowdy behaviour and swore and gestures throughout flight. Staff did very little to try and stop them until other passengers started to complain."
Pros: "Inconvenient all, no aplogise of delayed Flight as like the turtle!"
Cons: "To prepare on time!! Plz Eeven though I’ve booked more planty of time for next plan, it was late because of too much delayed"
Cons: "RYanair always delayed (1h30 delay inbound, 2h delay outbound), that company is a disgrace"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Service was not great. The baggage allowance was lower than other airlines, forcing us to repack before we checked our bags. Checking in online was mandatory-something that wasn’t very noticeable in the email when we had a million other trip details to attend to so we didn’t and ended up having to pay a fee to check in. Ridiculous. My wife and I were not seated together even though I booked both tickets together. The inexpensive upfront price of the flight is not worth it since they will trick you into paying in other ways."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good communication at the airoplane"
Cons: "Poor and tough language of some of the warking staf, poor instructions, very bad language at the airport before going to the airoplane and delay by half an hour"
Cons: "Was told at boarding gate for a visa check stamp requirement. Admittedly it was mentioned in a casual way in the boarding pass,but wasn't a border control requirement. The airline could have done it there. But was denied boarding, waited for 6 hours to catch next flight and further connections."
Cons: "1 hour flight delay 1 hour delay disembarking due to non-availability of ground staff Another appalling travel experience with Ryanair - they should not be allowed to operate an airline"
Cons: "Departure was delayed over 3 hiurs"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"
Cons: "Having to pay to use the toilet on board"
Cons: "Tiny seats, baggage policy is garbage"
Cons: "Delay was make rest of trip worse cos my other communication away without me. And I have to find alternative way"
Cons: "Poor comfort Poor customer service and high fares Hike price on website if you search same seat second time though plane had 25% empty seats"
Pros: "It got me to Frankfurt, that’s it!"
Cons: "This flight was over one hour delayed, waiting in line to board with no information, after landing we took a long tour of the Frankfurt airport, meaning between landing and getting out of the plane was about 1 hour again and when I picked up my suitcase it was all broken! So not a good experience at all!"
Cons: "Plane was an hour and a half late showing up and taking off."
Pros: "Easy boarding, cheap, quick and comfortable"
Cons: "paying extra for 20 kg luggage"
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"
Cons: "Had to give up my hand luggage, card machine on plane did not work on my card, even though the keypad said pinok amd transaction authorised their iPhone saying it did not. By law I should have been given a declined receipt from the card machine, that is consumer law"
Cons: "No food no watet"
Pros: "She was the most miserable and unfriendly person I have ever met! Why has she chosen a customer facing role?????"
Cons: "Air stewards, all very chatty amongst themselves but no time for their customers!!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane at the other end, eventually."
Cons: "The massive delay, the move of gates to the other end of the airport only to get onto a bus and then wait 15-20 minutes to get off the bus and onto the plane. Even an offer of free coffee on board would've been nice but nope, just a few apologies over the PA."
Pros: "Crew jokes eased the tension after the flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight delayes"
Pros: "If you pay for priority boarding you do expect to get first on the airplane But you go with everyone on the bus and since you got first you are among the last to board ...what the point to pay than?"
Pros: "Good price, adequate seats, space for our carry-on bags. No surprises!"
Cons: "Boarding involved a long wait standing in the tarmac in the sun."
