Book cheap flights to Ireland(Return)
Pros: The flight itself was fine. No issues whilst on the plane.
Cons: The website gives option for e-bording passes but the front desk wouldn't allow them. We had to use a printer/pay for internet to get our boarding passes printed. Then they didn't even use the ones we printed off. They printed off their own.
Pros: Could have been a nice cheap flight to Irland
Cons: We were unable to pre check-in for the flight so we just checked in at the gate but didn't know that would cost £45! Knew it would cost to check a bag but £40? The flight only cost £50 to book. Woman at the counter to pay the fees was rude and would not listen to our explanation as to why we couldn't pre check-in.
Pros: Even though I had a middle seat with no legroom (I'm 6ft7), it was still more comfortable than the Easyjet aisle seat I had outbound. The seat backs are plasticky but at least they are thin and don't encroach on your leg room.
Cons: departure gate area was standing room only
Pros: There is reallly nothing to like. It’s just a flight similar to a bus ride.
Cons: It’s a low cost no frills airlines. It’s just like riding on a bus, so there is really nothing positive above t th experience. The worst part is the lack of directions to check in bags. At Gatwick, I had to pay for my bag in a completely different location and being the receipt to the counter. The website was ambiguous and it appeared as if one bag checked was free. Of course, that’s way too optimistic because nothing is free on the bus...I mean Ryan Air.
