Pros: "On time - From Southend"
Cons: "The extra charges at EVERY turn on a hellish web site that makes you never fly again"
Pros: "I do not know why we could not select seat upon booking - so that my wife and I could have sat next to each other. I know it's away you would like to make extra cash - but its a bit silly"

Pros: "fast service"
Cons: "The plane was dirty... inside doors gross....a cup of coffee would have been nice or even water...it seemed like a constant sales pitch...felt bad for the crew...it was a huge value...but would have paid a bit more for just a few conveniences"
Pros: "Got us from a to b."
Cons: "No announcements or apology for lateness of slight by 1hr 15 mins No tunnels direct to plane from gate. Long flights of stairs from gate to tarmac. 10 minutes queuing on tarmac to board plane. No priority for those like us with child under 3 yrs we were always in the back of the queue. Coach from plane to terminal twice overfull and nowhere to sit with 2 year old child with slippery and wet floors. Lack of seating room uncomfortable journey. Vastly overpriced food and drinks on plane, not priced in £s so unable to pay."
Cons: "Crammed into the holding pen like sardines in a can"
Pros: "got me from point a to b without a connection or crash"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Didn’t announce gate until 5 minutes before flight was scheduled to leave. Then changed gate. People ran in a frenzy. Finally boarded and pilot announced they lost our bags. Waited on plane for another hour. Flight left 2 hours 15 minutes after scheduled. Food and drinks on the flight are ridiculously expensive. Asked for a meal and said they were out of stock. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable and too upright. The airline didn’t update the status of the flight online so my ride waited at the airport for 2 hours. overall 0/5 stars will not fly again unless ABSOLUTELY necessary."
Cons: "There check in app did not work and got charged for airport check in. Airport staff was useless and cared less."
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"
Pros: "Relatively inexpensive flight."
Cons: "Difficult to change anything with the reservation. 1.5 delay with no explanation, constant queuing and overall exhausting and unpleasant."
Cons: "The airline app did not enable us to download our boarding passes as non-EU citizens and the check-in desk refused to issue paper boarding passes. We had to wait to the last minute at the gate for the agent to write up a boarding pass by hand. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything . Staff, efficiency ,boarding process"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and very helpful with my sister struggling with her baggage due to her breaking her arm a few weeks ago. The crew on the ground at Shannon and on-board the flight could not do any more for us."
Cons: "The seating arrangements whereby we had to pay extra to sit together despite us booking the three tickets all at the same time. Ryanair are over-charging their customers with these hidden charges which are only declared at the check-in stage"
Pros: "It’s nice flying into Alicante where often those awful automatic passport machines give way to mails checks so much faster"
Cons: "Flight delayed,missing item of myluggage worth150£"
Cons: "the fact my flight time was changed and no-ne told me!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Late departure. Staff herding us like cattle before take off. Smelly cabin."
Pros: "Excellent crew trying to polish a turd, and it was cheap"
Cons: "I'm waiting 40 years for my effing bag."
Pros: "This is a good airline. I like how cheap the tickets can be"
Cons: "What I didn't like at all is the fact that you charge 15 euros just to print a boarding pass!! My phone broke, I was in a bad situation with this already and then asking for 15 when I need the back up the most?!! It's really messed up when you take advantage of people in need of help"
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and helpful on board I didn’t have any food and there wasn’t any entertainment"
Cons: "I didn’t like that there was absolutely nobody at the airport to answer any questions or just guide you in the right direction"
Pros: "I got there in one piece and had what I needed."
Cons: "The stress in having to buy a seat so I could print boarding pass in time for trip. Getting there 2 hours early for nothing.. All the threats about bags etc. Very unfriendly. Won't take it again"
Pros: "Priority boarding was great."
Cons: "Flights delayed significantly on outward and return journeys with no one providing any detail regarding next steps or estimated departures. But it was alright once things got moving."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you for everything. Bags, seating, boarding passes. I was given no warning that we had to print boarding passes beforehand. The lines were very long at airport with only 2 people working desk. Flight's don't take off on time and seats are very small."
Pros: "Easy embarkation, left on time, uneventful flight, arrived before schedule. Just what I wanted."
Cons: "Everything was just fine."
Pros: "Affordable price"
Cons: "Always i have to check in my carry on because "the overhead bins are full already". Later I realize this isnt true. No leg space. No reclining seat. They even charge you for water. Almost always departs late."
Cons: "Asked to put cabin bag in hold despite having no other hold luggage. Plenty of room for cabin bags right above my head. Even more delayed time"
Pros: "A very average flight, cannot complain. the newer mod seats made so much more room on the plane."
Cons: "When you buy tickets as a collective and check in with plenty of notice; it's an absolute disgrace to charge to sit next to your travelling partner. Ryanair going out of there way again to rinse there customers for every penny."
Pros: "The steward was friendly."
Cons: "Low fare is an illusion. They forced customers to check in carryons that would have been qualified as carryon by other airlines. Any checked in bag cost $35 and there is absolutely no free check in bags. We ended up check in 3 bags for two of us. Service is super slow. In addition, if you are traveling to London, the airport they use is STN which is at least 1 and half hours from the City. There is no Uber available from that airport. Tax cost is $120+. As you can see, no matter how cheap the ticket might seem, it ends up to be very costly, no matter you are talking about money and time. Flight attendant was friendly but the Rome CIA airport service was horrible (that's where they fly out from). You first have to stay in a long slow line to get the check in bag invoice, take it to a payment counter where 3 out of 4 service people were on there phone texting while there is another long and slow line of travelers are waiting to make payment. We almost missed our flight despite the fact we got there 3 hours earlier."
Cons: "Everything. Poor customer service. Fees galore. Fees for picking a seat, 30 euro to print a boarding pass? are you kidding me? over 90 euro to check two bags, seriously?! This airline is a joke and I will never use it again."
Cons: "Nothing was served not even water. We were crammed in very tightly"
Pros: "Every single one of the stewards was very good looking and very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was rough, and as a foreigner, it's a bit of a pain to have to print boarding passes since we don't really have a printer available within the check- in time. Luckily we didn't check any bags, so we avoided extra charges there."
Pros: "Arrived 25 minutes ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Good deal with regard to basic airfare."
Cons: "The bag check lines were slow and the agent was unfriendly. We were told our luggage was okay for carry on - size and weight requirements were met- at bag check. At the gate, the agent tried to charge us 50 euros per bag. Outrageous!"
Cons: "Charging me for not checking in online when I was not notified to so"
Pros: "The flight was very good and excellent staff."
Cons: "The system for check in very difficult getting response for some questions impossible it took over an hour to check in on line. I found the experience very stressful. Will not fly Ryan Air again. I was told by staff check in yourself or pay 44 euro each there were 2 of us. Both in our 80 s. No kindness at all from check in staff."
Pros: "i liked it when finally got out of the plane"
Cons: "first, they had a fee not well explained in the areas of bookings about check in and luggage. 40 euros per person just because we did not checked in on their app. we where not the only persons that had the same problem. about 6 other couples presented with same. plane had difficulties, nothing to drink, plane was delayed and very inconfortable. not recommended at all."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable Confusing check in with no help or assistance. Employees answer questions like you should already know the answer. Standing outside waiting to board"
Cons: "The airline ticket desk where we check in at the airport staff was extremely rude. They insisted that we must check-in online before the day of our flight, which we were not aware of or informed about this procedure. They then charged me $400 penalty fee for not checking in online prior to the flight (despite that I was not aware of this procedure). The airline ticket check in staff was extremely mean and rude with long lines of people waiting and almost missing their flights."
