Airline reviews

Pros: "The 'ease' of travelling with B. A., the efficiency of the staff and the comfortable seats in the plane all added to an enjoyable trip."

Pros: "Crew was nice, complimentary refreshments on board. Seat had spacious leg room."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The hot bacon sandwich for breakfast was generous for economy."
Cons: "We left late but I’m not sure the airline could do much about it."

Pros: "The seating configuration. Complementary drinks."
Cons: "The chance to be able to volunteer the hand baggage in Dusseldorf airport the same as available in London Terminal 5. The plane is small and it is best to have it sent to the haul after clearing security. This was not offered at any stage at Dusseldorf."

Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight due to delay"

Cons: "Delay of a half hour."

Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot took off and landed very well and I got completely drink and food. I will fly again. Thanks"
Cons: "It’s a bit cheeky because I know all airlines do it. But to bring a case included in the price and less hand luggage would be great. Having said that the hand luggage is very generous and I managed a full week in Ibiza with hand luggage. Thanks"

Pros: "Offer of small meal."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour. Asked to check in bag as full flight"

Pros: "The Flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The gate could have actually showed our flight which it did not. Someone could have communicated that the flight was delayed instead of saying final call on the boards. Overall it was very confusing and no staff was present to assist. In the end we were 2 hours late."

Cons: "Be on time so we dont miss our connection"

Pros: "Flight and on board service was fine"
Cons: "It is not acceptable when arriving at the recommended time, at a major airport, with a major airline, to find no desks open. We checked in online but our passes “could not be issued”. There were no self service terminals so we stood waiting an hour. Staff were sitting idly but not serving customers."

Pros: "Nice, remember usb charger cord & earbuds."

Pros: "More legroom comes as standard, compared to competitor airlines on the same route with the same aircraft"
Cons: "The interior of the plane is a little bit tatty"

Pros: "I like every single thing staff was kindly, smiley and helpful. Check in easy, I liked very much our pop corn and Fanta complimentary offer as also our quick trip. Landing smoothly and nicely"
Cons: "there was nothing I didnt like"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Because some of the passengers had not booked in online they were selected to be admitted from fight if takeoff problems occurred. Apparently there was a problem due to high wind gusts in taking off from Florence but information was very minimal and not displayed to passengers. People should not be discriminated because they are unable to go online!"

Cons: "Better not be hungry while boarding"

Pros: "I think I may have had more room in the seat on this little plane than when I crossed the ocean. Also the window seemed bigger. Very comfortable flight."

Pros: "punctual ,good service"

Cons: "Il"

Pros: "As someone who hadn’t flown with BA for a while, I certainly had positive experience with this flight. The staff was professional and the boarding/disembarking processes were smooth and quick."
Cons: "Need to work on punctuality. Would have been an excellent journey if it wasn’t for the delay."

Cons: "Called me a no show even though I was there."

Pros: "Ease of boarding, staff was delightful, flight was early arrival, everything was super."
Cons: "We arrived with 3 hours before our flight, as recommend for International travel. But we were not allowed to check our bags until 9:50 AM. We waited on line for almost 2 hours! If we had been told of this restriction we could have gone to a lounge to relax. Instead we waited a long time on foot."

Pros: "Stuff happens outside of the company's control and the inbound flight was an hour late due to crew absence. We were kept informed along the way and we boarded 55 minutes later than expected. However I couldn't have wanted for a better inflight service. Charming helpful and effective."
Cons: "Having to wait for the delayed flight."

Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "There were no gluten-free food options, not even an apple, so no food for us."

Pros: "Better than Ryanair/easyjet but then again. That’s nothing to write home about"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours. The plane was old dirty and stinky. I paid last minute for my flight so it was a lot more than usual so I feel ripped off because of the poor quality"

Cons: "I missed the flight not because of me, but the confusion information that a staff gave it to me."

Cons: "BA has a problem with one of the doors. Chaos."

Cons: "No WiFi"

Pros: "Free wine or beer"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and boarding was completely stress free. Myself and my partner checked in online with ease and were at our gates efficiently upon departure and return"
Cons: "Our flights were delayed 3 hours and 20 and although we were compensated for lunch at the airport, when handing out refreshments onboard we were completely missed out. Also pretty annoyed to find that we could only use the lunch vouchers in a hand full of the bars and restaurants."

Pros: "Timing and low cost for some flights"
Cons: "High cost some flights makes planning challenging."

Pros: "Aircraft was excellent LCY is very convenient Price was very competitive for most trips"
Cons: "BA is BA, Better than low cost guys but not LH Sometimes prices are high, with coach being higher than Club."

Cons: "Flight was fine LCY Worked very well. You are BA I DO NOT WANT TO BE NICKLE AND DIMED TO TAKE LUGGAGE. Yare not Ryan Air. If there is a charge make it clear when I buy the ticket. I do not expect to have to tell BA to grow up."

Pros: "Crew was nice. Small planes have better nicer seats and more leg room"
Cons: "Massive delay due to snow, no vouchers given until flight was cancelled (and it was all closed). Only updates were via BA app or email. Next day flight also delayed, and again delays communicated only via app or email (not at signs at airport)"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. On time, clean aircraft and professional."
Cons: "But the food policy is a joke. They wouldn’t give us anything, including water without buying it. I had no local currency and was waiting until I landed to use the ATM. When flying, people need water."

Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian entre and also ran out of snacks, so I was very hungry and had no options."

Cons: "City Airport crowded and overly commercialised. Rip-off prices."

Pros: "Ease of checking in and getting to departure gate at London City Airport."
Cons: "No food or drink on flight for normal travellers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad service, messed up booking, change me to the last row at boarding, I can keep going"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by seeming incompetence by ground crew in dealing with removal of bag from airplane"

Cons: "The boarding process was like a Third World country. The flight was fine, the flight attendants were lovely, but the boarding process was ridiculous. Nobody in the gate area knew which gate it was leaving from or what time it was leaving, it was quite delayed, finally it was posted to start boarding at five minutes after the departure time and instead, when everyone looked up, people were boarding 10 minutes before that. Ridiculous."

Pros: "Free food and drink remains on City flights. Convenience of City."
Cons: "Long flight. No entertainment"

Pros: "Boarded on Time"
Cons: "Flight took off but the plane was faulty. We landed an hour after take off waited in a room with no air conditioning for over an hour with no updates. After 3 hours after the flight was supposed to leave they cancelled the flight. Very poor and very disappointed!"

Pros: "Lucky enough that the flight was half empty so there was space for the passengers, the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was from Faro in July excesseding temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius outside, while inside was a an absolute freezer, not more than 15/16 degrees inside. I had to change cloathing mid flight cus I couldn't deal with the cold air anymore. On previous flight from London stansted to fato was exactly the same, and there wasn't any difference, we asked if we could turn off the aircon, no answer was given, neither warm covers were provided since the air was so cold. The flight attendant was female, by the name tag was "Praya" was somewhat a bit insensitive, but I realised after that she was as unfortunate as we were cus she was wearing a short sleeve shirt part of uniform, and experiencing the same as the rest of the passengers. The temperature issue caused the flight to be extremely unpleasant."

Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Loved arriving in the city instead of Gatwick."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Flight was being delayed every half hour. Finally after 4 hours we took off. Flight was due for take off at 16:20 but finally departed at 20:30. Food coupons were good for a sandwich and a drink. Will switch airlines in future as we make frequent trips to London."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They refused to hang my wedding dress, because I was not flying business class, so I had to shove it in the overhead. The were half hour late boarding. my "hot" meal was cold. They did not load my luggage on to the plane. I checked my bags two and a half hours before the flight time to go from Santorini Greece to Glasgow Scotland. Apparently it in three hours, since the plane was a half hour late boarding, they could not manage to load my luggage before take off."

Pros: "Punctual"

Pros: "Not a lot"

Cons: "Everything"

I'm young and fit so was able for the dash but elderly or familys would not have made the connecting flight in that time"

Pros: "Crew polite. Seats comfy."
Cons: "One person checking boarding cards at gate led to a ridiculously long queue for a nearly full flight and made it late getting us all on the plane and passengers were getting annoyed. Then whatever machinery Aer Lingus use to push the plane back from the gate actually got stuck on the plane cone leading to another delay. Knock on was we were made to wait for a take off slot and made to wait for a landing slot at Heathrow so late arriving."

Pros: "Reilly dolly"
Cons: "The other trolley dolly"

Pros: "Journey was good"
Cons: "Air lingus checked on my bag under someone else's name, now I am stuck in San Diego with no luggage and no answer as to where my bag is, very disappointed"

Pros: "I love this airline. I have a few suggestions below if you care to read them."
Cons: "You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy. Online check in was difficult to navigate and ultimately unsuccessful. There was not a roamer person in baggage check in area to assist those with language barriers or even electronically challenged people which delays the process."

Cons: "Airline lost my luggage..."

Pros: "Punctual and on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "I enjoyed the turkey and cheese pretzel sandwich, but I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard."
Cons: "I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard"

Pros: "IT was dope!"
Cons: "I was hungover."

Pros: "Quick and efficient."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Efficient staff and timely I would book again for sure"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Having to use steps at Cork airport . The cost of tea served in a disposable cup is too expensive."

Pros: "Preferential seating, though I had to pay for it."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea."

Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."

Pros: "Very good crew who were welcoming and attentive"
Cons: "We were placed at an international gate, had to wait for stairs (for the rear of the plane) and then a bus to the terminal. We arrived early but by the time we had waited for steps, bus etc, we were late!"

Pros: "Premium Economy was very comfortable"
Cons: "Food was delivered in a hurry just after we embarked A bit more relaxed would have been better"

Cons: "All good."

Cons: "Weird boarding process. We all stood in lines uncomfortably for a longish time."

Pros: "All crews are kind, friendly and excellent services, the handling of missed flight is good."
Cons: "The plane is too old lots of things falling apart, toilet door, tv screen and its remote control ect .."

Pros: "Good seats at back of plane"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "It is ridiculous to have elderly passengers made to carry heavy luggage up and down multiple steep stairways. This happened in Dublin, Edinburgh and of all places, Heathrow was the worst. There is no excuse not to have level walkways and Entrances to these large planes. Totally unacceptable given the prices we pay to travel."

Pros: "The plane was huge with lots of empty seats. This is better than my flight out, which was oversold (I was the person who didn't have a seat, until just before departure when someone else didn't show up). The seats appeared to be new."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. No information was available about what gate the delayed flight would be departing from, which made it difficult to relax while waiting due to fears of missing the flight whenever it finally took off. The electronic flight list said to check the monitor at 6:38pm to find out what gate would be used (for a 5:30pm flight). I checked the monitor at 6:14 and it said the flight was boarding. This seems like a recipe for making people miss the flight. At the very least it made things stressful. No free food/beverages were provided (some is available at a cost). A family with a very tired baby was forced to wait in a huge long line rather than being pre-boarded. That just seems discourteous to me."

Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."

Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times!"

Cons: "Flight delayed and caused me to miss connection. The flight from Edinburgh to London is only an hour. This became a disaster for travel all day."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "BA lost my baggage on my flight over and I missed my conference as a result of it. On the way home I was late for my flight as a result of a flat tire and BA did not help me get on another flight they basically said good luck and purchase another flight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was laid back. Not much else to say about a 1 hour flight."

Pros: "The modern plane and comfortable seats, fast boarding with little queue"
Cons: "The new strange self check in and baggage drop proceedure"

Cons: "Boarding takes longer on BA than any other airline I've flown on. Breakfast was awful. Cream cheese on a white roll tastes like paste. You'll really could be doing better than this."

Pros: "On time."

Cons: "We were late to our outbound flight due to our other flight being delayed from weather. We went to the ticket desk area, which was closed and were directed to another help desk. Once at the front the attendent refused to help us and sent us to another desk at the other end of the terminal. After waiting in another long line, the attendent told us we had missed all flights to Edinburgh. There lack of staff and customer service caused us to miss all flights and trains into Edinburgh. On top of that, we were notified our flight back to London would be cancelled because we missed our outbound flight and that she could not provide us with any credits or refunds that we would need to call customer service. We lost the money we spent on our Edinburgh hotel and had no way to get to our vacation."

Cons: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Why have they destroyed this once great airline. Better choice of destinations and better prices and similar poor service from the Budget Airlines..Once I return I WILL NOT fly BA ever again."
Cons: "Paying top dollar for the fare and the being asked to pay for the food and drink which was hugely overpriced anyway. They are now an Expensive no-frills budget service airline."

Pros: "Nice legroom in world plus."
Cons: "Wish there was live TV for sports."

Cons: "BA loaded drinks but no food onto flight. They "forgot". Paying only by credit/debit card is a time consuming nightmare. Without food, they were faster. Accept cash. Or allow pre-purchase online."

Pros: "Crew was great. Process of boarding and disembarking was fine."
Cons: "Space in regards to seating is inadequate"

Pros: "Good experience."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The subject says it all."

Cons: "Went through vayama, for this booking. Arrived for a 1:45 pm flight, which I had paperwork for. Jay Informed me, that a flight change to an am flight was emailed to me in December! No follow up email....say a week before?! Like all the other booking sites I use. Spent another night, in Ediinburgh, plus much money for new tickets. Two airport layovers. Will never go through this site again, rate it poorly and not recommend. Thanks, Vickie Varney"

Cons: "Disorganised"

Pros: "There was sufficient leg room in seating."
Cons: "No drink or snack during flight. Made it seem like a cut-rate airline. Had to board across the tarmac and up the steps as if we were on a "puddle-jumper.""

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had connection flight from Edinburgh to Amman with 1 hour 20 minutes layover in heathrow we had delay around 2 hours in Edinburgh we arrived 20 min before LHR-AMM flight and we missed our flight"

Pros: "Food and service was great. Pilot made trip smooth"
Cons: "Boarding at edinburgh was confusing."

Pros: "I would have liked to have been offered water at least without a charge."

Cons: "Boarding security very bad"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I spent e hours in the airport getting rebooked, shuffled, finding my checked luggage, and being treated like an inconvience. I will never fly British Air again."

Pros: "It was the beginning of school holidays so mobbed but we all got on the plane"
Cons: "Security at Edinburgh was tough for thise of us not used to the 'clear bag' policy. One steward (German guy? ) seemed to be in a permanant bad mood. And once we got to Heathrow, the jet bridge did not work, so we could see our luggage leaving the plane before we did!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The boarding crew from Edinburgh did not allow me to bring my carry on despite it being very light and within size restriction. They said this was because the plane was already full with others' luggage and could not handle my bag for safety. Had to shove my things in a Tesco carrier bag and in my daughters small backpack on wheels. The backpack broke later as it was not made to carry more than a few books. And to top it off, the suitcase I was made to check never made it on my connecting flight to Chicago. I am still waiting for it to be delivered 36 hours later. This suitcase is virtually empty. Well, it's actually carrying a pair of sunglasses and my phone charger. totally inconvenienced and the crew saved the plane from being dangerously overloaded by an empty suitcase. Absolute nonsense."

Pros: "Efficient at boarding gate all electronically monitored, photo recognition boarding a little confusing but help was on hand."
Cons: "The fact that we had to pay for something as basic as tea and coffee!!! Very disappointed in BA, their standards have dropped, not sure if I will continue to fly with them in the future."

Cons: "You can't even get a water to drink without paying"

Cons: "Not many choices on direct flights from Edinburgh to Shannon our final destination. Waste of time having to fly to London first for a connecting flight"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Reached 20 mins before time Leg space was ample."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Small sits for three people"

Pros: "Efficient check in and boarding. And friendly staff."

Pros: "It was a short flight, so didn't need much."
Cons: "Charged for food, even water. Boarding pass had one gate, but flight actually boarded from a different gate. No one there to tell us, no announcement. Good thing I checked board. No entertainment system."

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Not only no space to get comfortable but the seats themselves are not comfortable. We had better constructed seats on the hopper from Edinburgh to London. It is unconscionable that long flights are so uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Plane was new and clean. Entertainment selections were good. Lots of food and drink served. Lots infomercial space for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seating is cramped in Coach. The headrests on the seats have a tendency to push your head forward when the seat is in an upright position. When the seat in front of you reclines, it is difficult to cross your legs or reach for something stored under the seat. It seems to me that given how long passengers are in their seats on overseas trips, that seating should be more comfortable."

Cons: "Little close on the connection"

Pros: "The flight was very good- nice that food was served even on a short flight- crew was very nice- everything was easy."

Cons: "Some passengers were allowed to drink excessively becoming very loud and continually bumping into aisle-seated passengers."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Lost our luggage both at destination and on return to Chicago. Also canceled flights resulting in having to stay overnight at layover location spending night sleeping on sofa without blankets. Due to cancelled flight we didn't get to spend night in hotel I already payed for and now will lose day of work. My daughter and I will never travel with these are lines again. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED AND ANGRY. AMERICAN AIRWAYS AND BRITISH AIRWAYS are huge disappointment to us."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Being trapped at Edinburgh airport. The incompetence of BA. The shocking state of their aircraft. Their inability to understand customer service."

Cons: "Flight was delayed ridiculously and were not informed of what time it was delayed to until shortly before departure. Been told due to fog but other flights were leaving in the meantime!"

Pros: "Crew were professional and helpful"
Cons: "Terrible delay boarding"

Pros: "Great leg room in standard seats!"

Cons: "This flight has a record of being late 90% the times i use it"

Cons: "The airport was a bit tough to navigate, and the baggage drop area didn’t open until about 50 minutes before the gate closes, so the ticket says."

Pros: "The crew were great. Explanations given and complementary drinks given due to delay caused by medical emergency. Managed to organise new crew and problem solve very quickly."
Cons: "More leg room as the customer in front was rather large and the chair was pushed back from the weight"

Pros: "So not amazing, but good value - you get for what you pay-"

Pros: "The ground staff who helped my mother were just amazing. So kind and considerate"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"

Cons: "3 hours late and very little information. No refreshments provided."

Pros: "No"
Cons: "Anything"

Cons: "We were delayed an hour which would not have been so bad on a daytime flight but meant we did not arrive home until 3.30am"

Cons: "Half our delay"

Cons: "Calling passengers in order of seating arrangements, which in my opionion would avoid people blocking the aisle and speed up boarding."

Cons: "Boarding at gate 43 at Berlin was very bad. Encouraged to go to gate very early. The gate area wasn’t pleasant. Once checked in through the gate we had to stand in a cramped fenced off area for more than 30 mins Seating on aeroplane cramped Everything else was good."

Cons: "No delays!"

Cons: "Tall people suffer in any seat but the exit seat. Delayed flights are never enjoyable"

Cons: "More than one hour delay"

Pros: "Our outward journey was quick from parking our car through to departure lounge via bag drop and security all within 17 mins. And our return journey was just as good, from landing through security, collecting luggage to leaving the car park all within 30 mins."
Cons: "Self Service Bag Drop at Luton Airport was really quick. Security was exceptionally quiet and very quick."

Pros: "Quick and no fuss"

Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Was delayed by one hour due to fog (not airlines fault, but a nuisance nonetheless)"

Pros: "On time. Price."
Cons: "No vegan food just crisps or alcohol"

Pros: "Fast easy hoarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Ridiculously hot in the airplane before departing"

Cons: "Delay at departure one hour, long queues in Luton at passport control"

Pros: "Easy boarding and flight. The onboard meal deal tasted alright and wasn't as had value as I'd expected."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats but bearable for a few hours if you're not trying to sleep."

Cons: "The seats not comfortable for such a long flight, especially compared to bue air on the outbound trip"

Pros: "Kept informed about delay"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 3 hours so booked another flight with another airline"

Pros: "Very efficient. Staff helpful."

Cons: "Late again!! This flight has a 100% record of being over 30 mins late!"

Cons: "Extra cost for hold luggage"

Pros: "A much better return trip than the one going out so overall we were very happy."
Cons: "Delayed again. I do accept that most of the time delays are out of the control of the airline but it still detracts from the holiday. One drunk on the plane is still one too many, especially when they fall into you as the one on our flight did to me."

Pros: "Staff and flight was excellent no complaints"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 and half hrs and staff at the gates where really unhelpful when asking about information. It seemed forever getting on the plane from gate . We were waiting inbetween boarding gates and getting on the bus in small room with no room to move and still pushing more people into the room. Really unhappy."

Pros: "The flight to be on time for once"
Cons: "That this flight is ALWAYS LATE"

Pros: "The crew were good. Friendly and worked hard throughout the flight."
Cons: "Check in at Antalya was late opening, very disorganised and seemed incapable of dealing with what is a relatively small aircraft. Not easyjet’s fault, but Antalya is very poor, very much like the Greek island airports. Flight was a about 2 hours late."

Pros: "Comfortable new plane. Pleasant staff. Captain willing to stand in front of passengers and explain why the flight was delayed and offer the opportunity to visit the flight deck - a very human face."
Cons: "Fight was delayed for over an hour but hey, it happens."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "At first we had no seats as the plane was one row shorter than the one booked, so we had to wait. It turned out there were 3 free seats on the back row so my son could have a window seat for his 2nd time in the air."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed. No in flight service."

Pros: "Aircrew"
Cons: "Delays"

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: "You get what you pay for. That is exactly what easyJet is. Do not accept anything more. Some passengers decide that they are allowed 2,3 even 4 pieces of hand luggage! That annoys the crew and they make EVERYONE check the sizes of the luggage. That is just annoying. You know you’re only allowed one piece. Why bring more? To get from a to b this is the best service you’ll ever find. I have used it many time and have had no problems, personally. It’s amazing value for money."
Cons: "Annoying people who think that they can get away with more hand luggage. It’s not going to work. Stop doing this as the crew will make you put it all in one bag. It’s not worth it!! Pay for an extra bag if you need to!! It just annoys the rest of us!"

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: "We left on time and had a very smooth take off and landing. No issues with easyJet on this flight at all."
Cons: "The usual, not much legroom unless one is prepared to pay extra."

Pros: "Nothing special to mention"
Cons: "No luggage room above our head, we had to leave our luggage somewhere else far from our seats and the crew should help us promptly to get those luggage back but no, we had to get it ourselves and had to wait till the very end after all the other passengers have already got off the plane. Not fair on us when we were sat next to exit but had to anxiously wait. Shame!"

Pros: "Cabin crew tried hard to sound cheerful and be efficient"
Cons: "One word: DIRE. No information on the delay, we were left standing with no refreshments and tired kids for 2 hours, a good part of which was outside the terminal waiting to walk over to board the plane. Staff didn't bother to say anything, didn't know anything, offered no help, no refreshments or food, and there were only a couple of benches for people to sit on (this was the covered walkway outside the terminal building, offering no shelter from the heat). easyJet showing once again that it actually manages to be worse than Ryanair!"

Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Late departure. Limited legroom."

Pros: "Pilot telling very clear about flight , timing,"
Cons: "Crows"

Pros: "I have to travel from Geneva to uk for business a lot and over the last year Easy jet have a 95% record for either being badly delayed or on one occasion cancelling my flight altogether"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "9.45pm flight was cancelled, announced 3h later, no food, no accomodation, no transportation was provided. Ground staff was not informed. airport closed at 11pm. Received SMS to find own accommodation that would be reimbursed, once did, received email, that no reimbursement will be offered. I will bring them to court, not to get the reimbursement, but full compensation stipulated by the law, i.e. 250£ + all overnight expenses + trial expenses. I also learned from the ground staff, that this is systematic..."
Cons: "NOTHING! This is first, and last time I fly with these cheaters"

Pros: "The allocated seating system avoids having to rush onboard to claim your seat. In the past it became quite chaotic when boarding the plane."
Cons: "The long wait to board our plane especially when it was so hot and clammy."

Pros: "Nothing - no certainty for me the passenger over the delay. I had info by text which stopped after a while fortunately I could check on the website - times kept changing? The board only showed delayed & few announcements. Giving us €4.50 only covered half cost of a muffin and a drink!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed four hours but they told us to check in at the early time!!!! Then had to wait at airport all that time. Nice airport a mess not re signposted hard to find gate B!The ground crew were vague & not helpful. They should have provided us with bottles of water and a decent meal!! & certainty- failed woefully. The rep was not always at the gate to assist people I sat nearby reading so saw this. When it was time to actually board they made no announcement just put the gate number up on the board!!! Later made one for speedy boarding!! Did not feel looked after in any way. Then no cold drinks on plane and no ice till I made a fuss - suddenly I had ice!!! Charged my card in £ instead of € No hot food. Card machines not working - no wifi!! Doh!! All in all appalling customer service/ PR The crew were exhausted and over it - their job to to care for passengers - I think one went off in tears??"
