Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It flights themselves were fine. A 45 minute delay sucked though."
Cons: "Service & Notification. The airline switched my itenerary without alerting me which made me miss a connection. The resulting troubleshooting with the airline has been non-existent. I will not fly Eurowings again."
Pros: "The flight was pretty smooth considering it was a small plane."
Cons: "I did not appreciate having to give my hand luggage into the hold which meant that I did not have any money to purchase any drinks on the flights and I was also sitting next to an overweight man which made it very tight for space."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40min So i missed the connection in Leipzig"
Pros: "Boarding and getting off the plane was fast"
Cons: "Our luggage space was occupied with bags from passengers from other rows."
Pros: "It was efficient"
Cons: "More comfortable"
Cons: "Everything from checking in where I asked for an aisle seat and was informed that I was given an aisle seat just to find that I was given a middle seat on both legs even though I had checked in for the second leg of the trip. Added to which my luggage is now missing"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Change in gate was not anounce"

Pros: "Very fast check in. No problems"

Cons: "The crew (and people before boarding) were kind of rude (e.g. mean tones, not really smiling, etc.)."
Cons: "Everything, flight was super late, no explanation whatsoever,"
Pros: "No frills but no dramas either. All efficient and friendly. Helped that there were many empty seats"
Pros: "I’ve flown with various airlines and must say that I was very impressed with this crew. I guess it was because they all were young and didn’t füdisplay burnout as so many other flight attendants show when dealing with their customers."
Cons: "On both flights the control forty didn’t work."
Pros: "The flight was 20 mins faster, boarding was OK. The ladies on board were doing a good job"
Cons: "Unfortunately the seal with extra legroom was comparable with a standard seat from other mid-distance airlines. The food & drink service was only from very limited quality. There was no entertainment on the seat, only with wi-fi oboard on your own handheld."
Pros: "Boarded and departed gate on time. Efficient."
Cons: "Not the friendliest."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too late and not too much Information about that"
Pros: "Very speedily boarding, crew dealt with a passenger with a large bag well."

Pros: "Staff super friendly. Comfortable sears. Food very good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we could not check in online from home."
Cons: "Timing Food Service Entertainment"
Cons: "Fligjt canceled, bad customer support, lost bag"
Cons: "Another delayed Eurowings flight to Stuttgart with no information provided."
Pros: "The two staff I randomly meet and ask for questions"
Cons: "Stereo type staff unnecessarily and poor customer services from two ladies while I was leaving to exit. I didn’t know I should be escorted by them at that point and they were so rude on . They couldn’t even be nice and understand that I miss my flight."
Pros: "We had one of the more legroom seats so that was nice"
Cons: "Everything else. I felt the stewardess from my aisle was extremely rude. She would ask someone a question and obviously they can’t hear her because their watching a movie, so she would wave her hand in their face. Another time she was telling me “excuse me” in German while I was watching a movie. I thought she was speaking to someone else since I did not understand German and then she very rudely said “excuseee me”. The food was not filling and they charged for drinks. She also said I was only allowed one free drink of coffee. The second snack was a cake or cheese sandwhich. We were starving the entire flight we had to give in and pay for snacks on board. I’ll try to avoid eurowings from now on."
Cons: "Das ist nicht das erste Mal dass ein Eurowingsflug verspätet ist. (Verspätung von einer Stunde!)"
Cons: "Cancelled the flight from Cologne to Zurich - It was showing on time when we left home, but at the airport we saw the status change. No one called or emailed us even when all the details are provided while booking the ticket. The line for the ticket counter at the airport was miserably long, so we had to use international roaming to make our calls to customer service. They never told us why the flight was cancelled and changed the topic to how they can rebook us - my suspicion is that there were very few customers for that flight so they thought its cheaper to cancel the flight and let the customers figure out the solution. Horrible! Te only option given to us was a late night flight to Vienna (more than 12 hours later), and then staying overnight there and then flying to JFK. That was of course unacceptable as we had to join work on Monday. I asked them to then look into Dusseldorf and any flying options from there. They were able to book us a flight from there. We rushed to DUS airport - The email confirmation took hours to show up in my inbox even though they promised 10-15 minutes. After waiting for the confirmation for a little, we had to take a cab from Cologne airport to Dusseldorf airport. It cost us over 200 euros and a lot of stress. The whole experience was a nightmare and I would not wish it upon anyone."
Pros: "Departure on time, arrival even earlier than scheduled. Great!"
Cons: "The boarding system in Olbia is chaotic. We were "boarded" to be kept in the building like cattle, then got into a bus waiting for about 20 min. before we were driven to the aircraft that was standing about 200 m from a gate where we could have boarded walking over. Very poor organization"
Cons: "Is there anything more to say?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and punctual."
Cons: "Service and seat comfort not as by the same standard as Eurowings."
Pros: "Once we were all aboard the completely booked out flight, it didn’t take long to take off. The captain apologised for the delay and kept us up to date with our progress during the short flight. Staff were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Lack of communication at the boarding gate. It wouldn’t take much to let people know the reason for the delay. And, while I understand that it isn’t possible to cater for all allergies on a short flight, there are enough people with food intolerances to have a few options other than wheat based snacks."
Pros: "Spacious seating for a budget airline."
Cons: "Nothing. All good."
Pros: "legroom was ok but i paid for it"
Cons: "i somehow ended up having paid for a "meal" onboard, which consisted of half a sandwich (don't know why they thought mayonnaise went with cheddar), half a cup of coffee and a carton of water. Apparently that cost me 10 euros and it was something i should have unticked when reserving my seat. the flight was also delayed an hour with minimal apology."
Cons: "Delay almost 3h. No food, no snack at all offered for passengers waiting in the airplane for hours after boarding. After 2 hours they offered water. Woow!"
Pros: "Very nice plane with the most legroom I’ve ever had"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour"
Cons: "I wasn’t offered any refreshments despite having pre-paid for it, onboard Wifi and entertainment did not work, cabin crew were no polite"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "boarding took too long"
Cons: "Long walk plus bus ride to plane in windy and chilly weather with slight drizzle."
Cons: "- the staff member who was boarding patients at Glasgow airport (although not on the flight itself) was very rude and impatient. she seemed to be having a bad day - the light was delayed by approximately 45 mins"
Cons: "Paid 18 pound extra for extra legroom and a snack but when asked the airhostess she said we didnt pay for one"
Pros: "Only good thing about flight was it is cheap"
Cons: "Button of my travel bag was broken during transfer of luggage by airlines.no leg space in flight."
Cons: "EW lost my suitcase in transit in Duesseldorf. Suitcase arrived in Berlin on next flight but then didn't get delivered until 24+ hours later. Hard to reach both EW and delivery service. Due to the delay and further travel plans the next day, I had to buy new clothes in Berlin to have something to wear."
Pros: "Prices of food items was reasonable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour . The aircraft had to be refuelled and we were asked to remove our seat belts and wait for an hour. Ae Service was horrible. The passengers who paid extra for snacks with the ticket were served first and even after I said my ears were hurting and I needed something sweet to chew on (I was going to buy something to eat anyway) I wasn't served till roughly 75 minutes into the flight. The crew was inconsiderate towards passengers who bought economy seats and was focusing only on passengers who paid extra for seats and snacks. If that's the case then they should stop serving other customers anyway and tell us beforehand so that we can arrange our own food/drinks from the airport lounge"
Cons: "The service of the airline was horrible. They lost our bags and refused to show any empathy towards us or the multiple other passengers that also lost their bags from our flight. I will never fly Eurowings again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over and over and finally cancelled. We had to go out to the ticket counter to rebook. That meant clearing customs and then going back thru security again. A real Hassel!!! I think any other airline would have rebooked people in the terminal!!!"
Cons: "I travelled with my two children and they have given us three completely separate seats. I tried to ask the crew to help but they refused, both ground crew and in flight crew. We have flown with both Wizz Air and Easyjet this summer and those airlines have always assigned us seats together. Lufthansa did also. No idea why it was not possible for Eurowings. Also, crew were completely unhelpful, did not want to lift a finger for us. Luckily, a kind lady switched seats with me so I could sit next to my youngest son. Would definitely think twice about flying Eurowings again..."
Pros: "Everything was fast and convenient and the price was good"
Cons: "No sign of eurowings on check in"
"I love everything"
Cons: "The seats more comfortable."
Cons: "No good planning for cabin baggages, caused ~2 hour delay, sitting inside the craft."

Pros: "The crew is good But the seats not comfortable .. it's like minibus .. no range of movement .."
Cons: "Toilet .. seats .. windows.. air conditioning must be stronger .."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The airline should at least provide a snack. It's 4 hrs of travel."
Pros: "One Crew member was very nice, the rest were not so friendly. But overall a smooth ride, and no problems."
Pros: "No different than other airlines as far as airplane goes. Crew was OK."
Cons: "Ticketing process was little bit chaos. I had 5 different names on my e-tickets, but one person name was missing and there were duplicate names.I showed my e-tickets and a ticketing agent took care of it."
Pros: "The crew doesn’t smile! The economy seats are narrow, with the same ticket price I can fly with a plane with infotainment"
Cons: "Though it was a one hour flight At least you could offer passengers water or coffee plus a smile would do make us feel relaxed."
Cons: "We were really afraid from istanbul to beirut."

Cons: "On my flight, passengers were rude to the extent that a fist fight broke out and cursing amongst everyone occurred."
Cons: "seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "The tickets were relatively inexpensive."
Cons: "However, for comparably-priced flights within the United States, we would have been given a snack and two beverage services on a four hour flight. This was international (turkey to spain) and we weren't given anything. We couldn't even get water without paying for it. Definitely one of the worst flights I've ever taken."
Pros: "Bording was fast and the plane took off on time."
Cons: "Unexpected Flight Cancelation; zero assistance replacement, alternative flights, overcharging baggage, no refunds despite flight cancellation, disappearing of Pegasus staff instead of assistance, no assistance when calling headquarters, stranded for days w no help on site nor by phone, deferring to third party vendor"
Pros: "price. flight. comfort. convenience"
Pros: "Unfortunately, it's impossible to find a single positive thing to mention. I'd gladly pay more if needed and never fly with them"
Cons: "I took 4 flights with this airline. Each was at least an hour late in take offs and landings. Very unfriendly staff whether at the check-in or flight attendants. Incredibly uncomfortable seats (compared with same level seats with other airlines). They reminded me with outdoor vegetable and fruit markets where farmers and gypsies yell to sell their products; they charge for everything, offering nothing on a 4 hrs flight, not even water. Not sure if it is a language barrier, but they are very rude and impolite in English. I really wish there was a single good thing to say. Even the pilots are the worst i've seen. Very rough landing every single time"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "No one smiles or tries to help, the Baggage weighing is farcical as people get on in Turkey with three hand luggage’s. Flight was late, no explanation and no apology. Pre flight safety and general announcements are made as fast as possible. Unintelligible"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Space for the leg"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Oh wow there’s a long list: -flight was late -no food or drinks were offered -seats were dirty -plane was dirty -staff spoke very limited English -every single food we ordered was “sold out” -credit. At cpayments we’re not accepted -toilets were not clean I could continue but the above suffices."
Cons: "delay, onboard service"
Pros: "Checked in online with a carry on luggage, no waitşng in lines. Flight was on time and landed on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The space between the seats could have been a bit roomier."
Pros: "Not worse than any other low cost airline. planes are new and cabin personal was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to delay of other plane. Cabin was really hot"
Cons: "The none sense of explaining why I cant go on the plane ... according to there website I should have 2 stamps from the lebaniese authority on my passport one for going in and one for going out which I gladly provide them with... the responsoable for the check in at Frankfurt Airport and according to him was communicating with "pegasus Airline" in Istanbul by WhatsApp and just kept saying "those can't fly today" the funny thing he was writing in german and refuse to give me there number so I can explain the situation now the main reason why i couldn't go on the plane because I wasn't once in my life in Turkei which makes none sense according to there website I contacted them with Emails and they answered me that I should have the 2 stamps if i want to fly from Instanboul to Beirut which I already have but the haven't notice that i didnt even got ob the plane at the 1st place .... the huge amount of nobe sense, stupidity, the lying that there is no Pegasus airline office ath the airport and the 0 responsibility for there actions can provide you guys with a picture of how they behave with the customers"
Pros: "As long as they are reverting a cheap ticket then the service is good"
Pros: "An early landing made my onward journey so much easier."
Pros: "It has good crew members and fine alternatives for eating."
Cons: "No entertainment option is available."
Pros: "They changed my online check in into front window seats for free Was in time"
Cons: "It's low cost, it arrived in time. It's ok :)"

Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"
Pros: "Efficient and polite crew, nice flight, nice take off and landing."
Cons: "Delayed for 30 minutes."
Cons: "120 Euros for 10 kilos over in checked baggage. I have never in my life been charged such a fee with any other airline. With that kind of money, I could have flown a much better airline, with working AC, complimentary WATER, and a plane that at least doesn't smell like stale, sweaty nastiness. Pegasus is a joke and will never see a penny from me again. Not to mention that you have to take a bus to the airports from the plane!!! All in all, you will get treated like a very low class citizen on this airline."
Cons: "We didn't get a glass of water. Shame on you"
Cons: "The way of talking to the passengers."
Cons: "the air conditioner didnt work in the plane and they took very high rate for extra bag of 180 Euro!"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Cons: "Crew lacks professionalism and courtesy. Distance, between rows, is small, a few cms (5-7) more, will bring great benefit. The transfer, at Instanbul, was crowded, inefficient and noisy; it took too long. The bathrooms were filthy and stinky."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Cons: "The flight got delayed. One of my loggage didnt got to bucharest only at the evening of my second day."
Cons: "Wasn't informed of any delays. Every flight was delayed or rescheduled! Nobody was informed of anything that was happening. I will never fly again with Pegasus"
Cons: "The flight was canceled only after checking in and going through immigration. I am stuck in limbo due to visa expired and can not go back into Dubai. Had to remain inside departure terminal by gate for 18 hours. Ended up rebooking flight with another airline and delaying my arrival into Turkey by two days."
