Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew were helpful and efficient - it was a short flight so they had very little time to prepare the meal, distribute the meal and prepare the aircraft for landing - but they did."
Cons: "The English announcements by the cabin crew (not the pre-recorded announcements) were difficult to understand at times due to the accent."
Pros: "A quick, quiet and relaxing flight - no stress at all. The flight was uneventful. My carry on bag had to be stored in the bottom of the aircraft as the overhead lockers in the aircraft are small. As such - just before you board the aircraft, you place your carryon bag at the bottom of the steps and then when you get off at your destination, you collect your carry on bag at the bottom of the steps - no time wasted and worked easily."
Cons: "The English announcements were a little hard to hear/understand as the flight attendant read it so fast - but then again - it was a short flight - so every second counts :-)"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful and the flight arrived early, even though we left a little bit late - as such - I was very happy with the flight. The onboard entertainment system was wifi based and there was a USB charging port in the seat too - modern aircraft."
Cons: "I had no complaints - the flight was just what it should have been ie no issues"
Pros: "From checkin, to boarding, to the fly, to luggage collection - the staff were all friendly and helpful and the whole experience was without issue. The flight was comfortable, leaving a touch late and arriving 10 minutes early. I have no complaints at all and would be happy to fly Iberia Express again."
Cons: "If I had to find one thing that wasn't so good - it was the time it took for everyone to put their carry-on luggage in the overhead lockers although this is not the airline's issue but became their issue because it meant the boarding process took a while. As mentioned - only a minor issue."
Cons: "Fly on time"
Pros: "Crew was nice and reliable."
Cons: "Beverages should be complimentary."
Cons: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Ibéria offers a terrible service to its customers"
Cons: "Ibéria offers a terrible service to its customers"
Pros: "The aircraft comfort"
Cons: "Do the checking before not 15 min before the departure"
Pros: "The flight was good even puntual! However I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online."
Cons: "Awful online experience! I waste 1 Hour of my day in check in desk, as I couldn’t get my boarding pass when I check in online. it never works!"
Pros: "Spacious plane."
Pros: "To check in took so long . I could have used the automated check in but my code was not recognised. Travelling as a couple we were given separate seats .The staff did not even see fit to even tell us.Poor meals. the cabin crew looked harassed."
Cons: "Send emails reminders to offer web check in."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour due to inbound delay, causing a knock-on delay with plane maintenance. While fairly comfortably seated and offered water, this still was somewhat unpleasant especially after a long-haul from Havana"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "SEAT was not confortable"
Pros: "Al the devices provided"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Arriving at the gate whilst the flight was still boarding, with a boarding pass in my hand, and being told that my seat had been given to someone else because the Airline unilaterally decided that my connecting flight from Bogotá would not arrive in time. Followed by two hours of Iberia staff being surly, not looking me in they eye and doing absolutely nothing about getting me home. I have now been travelling for nearly 30 hours without sleep, am stuck in Madrid with no certainty of when or how I will get home or see my luggage again, and am seriously seriously pissed off. I do accept that things can sometimes go wrong and that it is nobody’s fault. This is definitely somebody’s fault."
Pros: "Speed of boarding and disembarking. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "We arrived on time!"
Cons: "Checking in and dropping off luggage was a nightmare... There was no one at the check in desks indicated on the screens or the check in terminals. Eventually I found a desk at a different location that would take my bag. Boarding was chaotic, no lines, just a crowd blocking access. Even passengers with small children couldn't get through. Space between seats was minimal. Crew was ordering passengers to take headphones off during security demo. I understand it is important to be attentive, but ultimately you shouldn't be forced to."
Cons: "Had to want in aisle to go to bathroom while beverage cart took forever to get to the back of the plane. Line was 12 deep to get there."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "There was no water in business class toilets. The staff are not polite."
Pros: "The crew on board seemed efficient and friendl for this short 2.5 hour flight."
Cons: "No food, no drink, no entertainment were included with this fare. Thankfully we were so exhausted from the long haul flight immediate preceding this flight that we did not care. I'm not sure why but the gate staff was trying to get everyone to check their smaller bags including our backpacks. My husband gave in but I did not since not having them would be disaster during this trip. His backpack and many bags from other customers came about 15 minutes after the rest of the luggage so we were a little panicked. Thankfully all turned out fine."
Cons: "I can’t rate it is it left without us"
Cons: "The flight circling for 1 hour leaving our connecting flight cancelled and forcing us to stay in Madrid for 24 Hours and the Iberia staff being rude and unhelpful left us in the airport for 6 Hours before offering us a hotel and coming back the next day to do 2 flights instead of a direct flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The lack of water offers during the flight"
Pros: "They made up time on the flight"
Cons: "This was already a makeup flight and it wasn’t efficient enough to help me"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was in bad shape, dirty and the seats were very worn out. There was no entertainment."
Cons: "One of the cabin crew had a attitude problem, very much a bull in china shop. Very disappointed. She threw a pillow someone had dropped at the seat between my partner and I. Kept on bargain past me and kept on knocking my arm while I was seated"
Pros: "Was very lucky and had whole row of three seats to myself. Also time zone change so flight was only really 1 1/2 hours instead of 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Good, quick flight!"
Cons: "Being told that we could not bring cabin luggage on board with us when there were empty seats and luggage space around us."
Pros: "The attention, food and entertainment available on board"
Pros: "The screens on a dozen seats just failed a few hours in - engineering issue. And breakfast was a cold pretzel. Food gets let’s generous on BA all the time. The crew were lovely."
Cons: "A 2330 Flight ran significantly late with a passenger delay and then de-icing. The repeated assurances of “a 10 minute or so delay” were obviously not correct. Takeoff close to 0100 was followed by drinks AND then food - my vote would be neither. Please oh please just let us sleep."
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "food is expensive"
Pros: "When I got off a previous flight, I had missed my connection. I was greeted with someone who had already booked my next flight. Also, the seat was fairly comfortable for a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "As great as it was that they booked my connecting flight, I wish I could have my luggage. It has been over a week and I believe that it is because I had such a short layover from my first flight to this one."
Pros: "Turist class is now low cost class too"
Cons: "Overall a very uncomfortable journey"
Cons: "Iberia lost one of our bags and also broke our stroller"
Pros: "Every thing special the staff generaste thy was perfect"
Pros: "Check-in was good, no queues. I arrived about four hours before scheduled departure time and check-in had been open already for an hour. In Mexico City Airport I had missed a flight three days earlier as I'd been observing the departure screens and they'd failed to update the status of my aircraft: this time I was informed of the gate at check-in. Flight was on time and didn't do anything scary. I was lucky as my neighbour found another free seat so left me with more room."
Cons: "I've found Iberia to be uncaring. This flight was much the same. The food and drink service was cheap, and I felt the attendants didn't feel like they had to try to give good service. The new entertainment screens kept coming on, and I kept turning them off as I wished to sleep. Eventually I discovered they were being triggered by the electrostatic charge on the pillows that I was rearranging."
Pros: "Pilot advised passengers of a flat tire in order to be prepared for ground crew and firefighters to inspect the mishap."
Cons: "Baggage size for carry on luggage changed from BA to Iberia aircraft."
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Boarding process and pitiful legroom space . Iberia clearly loves showing the privileged few who have paid top dollars to be at the front , that we must be made to wait and struggle to get to our seats .Then, we have to squeeze into a tiny , pitiful space of a seat .....Even Ryanair does better !"
Pros: "Price to fly on this airline is very reasonable and affordable. I would fly on on this airline just for that reason alone."
Cons: "Seats are VERY small and squished together."
Pros: "The discomfort of the cramped seating overshadows everything"
Cons: "This was the 3rd time I had to take Iberia coach in Europe in 4 week. As horrible as the first 2 times. The rows are too close to each other. I can not sit straight. My knees hit the seat in front of me. I was not the only one measuring more than 6 feet. Other men equally were obliged to sit sort of diagonally. It a real torture. Horrible. Never again."
Cons: "Entertainment Screens did not work. Charged for drinks."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "No free drinks, and I had to flag down a crew member to buy the €2.50 bottle of orange juice; even then I had to remind him before he brought it! We had little time between flights, and had to empty water bottles at Security before boarding but forgot to refill them, so we really noticed the lack of beverages."
Pros: "That we at least got some water"
Cons: "The gate changes, the late start, bad or no info or help from front desk or onboard personnel regarding your connections"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Confusion at boarding gate with different groups being called with no clarity - overpriced for 1 way Trip"
Cons: "This sucked."
Cons: "Seats far too small and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Kayak sucks. I chose to buy ticket w kayak and took me to vayama (another horrible site). The ticket they sold me, which was not cheap, didn’t let me check in online and didn’t say that I was gonna have to pay 200 euros at airport to check in 2 bags!!!! A disaster everything."
Pros: "The crew with neither rude nor particularly welcoming."
Cons: "When did vueling stop offering a free snack and drink. Not even a glass of water for your passengers is just plain inhospitable."
Pros: "Save you money and avoid this airline."
Cons: "Complete overhaul of the company."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and everything was on time"
Pros: "we landed safely"
Cons: "need entertainment system. need complimentary drinks and snacks need comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nothing. This was poor service from every stand point, starting from punctuality. Almost 2 hours delay and almost lost my connecting flight in Barcelona"
Cons: "Change management"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late with no announcements made in the terminal"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with very little information given by the crew. There was a 15 min delay getting off due to there being no airbridge and no information from the crew. There was very little legroom. The seat in front was broken and kept collapsing on my legs"
Cons: "Late as per Vueling fashion"
Cons: "Was an hour late."
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Over three hour delay for mechanical issues! Also, check in was a big pain. Bought tickets through vayama. Not recommended."
Cons: "My passport was stolen and the airline couldn’t help me at all as far as reimbursement or travel voucher. It was just a tough situation."
Pros: "The person I was sitting next to."
Cons: "Everything. Horrible experience at Gatwick and witnessed one staff member being very condescending towards a guest and made her get off the plane for Vuelung’s mistake. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Short flying time"
Cons: "Communication with flight delay"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Had to exist and renter via departure and go through security again because there was no direct transfer, it was horrible having to go through security again."
Cons: "There was nothing about the trip to like. I still have not made it to Agadir. The flight in Denver was delayed two hours, causing my family to miss all connections. This I turn required me to fork out $1000 additional to make it to my final destination."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. And the departure time kept changing. To the point that we had to run for the flight"
Pros: "The crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "I had to purchase a change in ticket due to delay in first flight. Only take American Express or cash, which was difficult, not a credit card with a chip. Disappointing."
Cons: "They closed the gates on time despite the flight being nearly 2 hours late. So, passengers sat in the plane for about 4.5 hours for a 2h flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Horrendous experience from checking to the airport. Be aware when trying to check in online, not only posible if you don’t pay a fee to choose seats. Therefore you are unable to check in until the last minute, and as they overbook the flight, if you don’t pay, You risk not get into the plane."
Cons: "A bit late getting underway but flight crew courteous, plane clean, deboarding efficient. Overall, reasonably comfortable efficient budget airline"
Cons: "There were no real vegetarian options from hot and cold food menu for both adults and children"
Cons: "boarding was slow"
Cons: "Did not get to this flight due to cancellation from the initial flight"
Pros: "The seat comfort was acceptable. this is what you get for what you pay."
Cons: "no comments"
Pros: "Trying to be the worlds worst airline. They get my vote. With totally mixed up gates many missed flight. Airline didn’t care"
Pros: "The overall was good, the flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding system could be changed: they start boarding when the aircraft is not yet ready, so the line just moves from the gate to the finger, which is annoying. They should wait until the plane is ready to start with the boarding."
Pros: "Because kayak did not alerted me my flight had to be moved to Miami since is the only city that provides passports the same day. This extra expense costed me over 400$ in hotels gas and extra parking costs."
Cons: "Kayak services were terrible and I do not plan to use them again. The website should have alerted me that I needed a passport valid for longer than 3 months to my flight for Spain."
Cons: "The flight was 1/2 late and hence arriving"
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "I have not gotten my baggage for my flight I have been here 3 days after I landed"
Cons: "Most Vueling flight that I take are delayed"
Cons: "When we got to the airport, the gate info wasn’t on the screen. We found a seat and waited until the time it said the info would be available. When the info was available, it said the gate was closing in 10 minutes. You have to pay for everything. I ordered a meal, but there must have been a language barrier because the stewardess sold me a meal and extra sandwich, when I only wanted one. The seats don’t recline."
Pros: "Good but not the delay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours so I missed my coach from Barcelona to valencia and had to pay €34.50 for another ticket can you please try to refund me this money."
Pros: "The crew are so helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Our flight was ridiculously delayed due to fog no fault of the airline but the communication was terrible"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "30 minutes late - better than 2 hours with previous Vueling flight..."
Pros: "Key to long haul flight is keeping everyone happy without forcing them to sleep. On a westbound flight arriving at night you want to get on the target timezone asap, this flight is the FIRST that really allowed me to do that without conflicting with people who don't know how to manage jet lag. The dimmable large windows and comfortable seat make it more comfortable. A/V with 3D map, online lunch ordering, being able to see outside without the bright sun bothering anyone, all worked well. +100 I was skeptical of the a la carte food & beverage service, without any regular service, especially on a long haul flight, but it seems to be much less hassle for stewards and frees up passengers to eat when they want. the food selection was meager and overpriced though. video system worked well, fortunately I found one good one, had all the trick play (replay, captions) so, ok, given meager selection. after 12 hour, people are tired, but few were visibly annoyed or crabby."
Cons: "They didn't have place to put garbage on the airplane, we tried to stuff it in the bathroom once, we just left the rest in the empty seat next to us. Spanish airports don't have good queue management, only two boarding classes, makeshift line. People crowd the gate making it seem like they'r about to get on next confusing the people who actually are next."
Cons: "Seats are like deck chairs with no leg room"
Pros: "When check-in online I was given 1st row seats, as a result I was treated as an excellence customer. Great service."
Cons: "Delayed flight that was a connection and nearly missed my next flight"
Cons: "Late flight. Delay not announced. Late luggage too"
Cons: "They told us we didn’t have seats and that we’d have to go on standby. All staff were giggling and not very helpful. In the end we managed to get on the flight which seemed to have at least 4 extra empty seats. Poor customer services and communication to us of whether we would get the flight or not and what to do if not."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Barcelona"
Cons: "Extremely poor service by the cabin crew. They were extremely lethargic and slow with service. So much so that numerous rows of seats with young families were never served. No announcement or apology, they just stopped serving as they needed to prepare to land. They knew from the start how long they would have to serve drinks/snacks but didn’t care and definitely did not go out of their way to ensure everyone would be served. The worst service or total lack of that I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Staff and smooth fligfht"
Cons: "Really long delay with hardly any information of when takeoff will be"
Pros: "we reached our destination alive"
Cons: "We sat on the aircraft on the tarmac for two hours, no explanation. Food and drink were served 20 mins before landing, some people didn’t get a chance to have a drink. Staff were disorganised confused and rude. My debit card was handed to another passenger because the steward had no idea what he was doing. Beyond awful!"
Pros: "Seats were clean"
Cons: "Delayed flight which lead to then sitting in the plane on the runway awaiting a time to take off. Flight attendant didn’t serve the back half of then plane with drinks. Luggage Carousel kept changing."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no gate information till 18:40 - when flight was supposed to take off at 14:40 - then gate overcrowded by passengers from 3 different flights all to the same place. Crew members didnt know how to handle the situation and over 200 did not board the plane. However once taken to the plane lucky passengers had to wait outside on runway for approximately 40 mins as cabin crew also did not know how to handle the situation. Those with assigned seats did not get them and those with luggage to go in the cabin were informed there was no more space and luggage had to be put in the hold. We finally boarded the plane at approximately 8:40 but could not take off for another 2 hours where we were stuck on a small cramped space on a plane full to capacity not having eaten anything for hours with no idea of the progress of the situation. In conclusion I expect every passenger should receive a refund for not only the extrodinary 8 hour delay but for the mismanagement of the entire situation."
Pros: "Nothing.... Very poor. Generally Vueling has a poor image but I took a chance nothing has changed"
Cons: "On board the plane I was told you have to pay for all the food drinks quite abruptly maybe because I had shorts on and a tee shirt the lady in question thought I did not have much money.....Never go by how somebody is dressed that's my advice to your airline staff...."
Cons: "On arriving two hours early to my flight I was told that I was being put on standby because the flight was full. Not sure how I got bumped from a flight that I bought a ticket for 3 weeks ago? Upon waiting at the gate I came to realise that 17 other people had also been bumped. How does an airline overbook a flight that much? We were led to the baggage claim and told to pick up our bags to be rechecked- then the flight attendants disappeared, giving us no further direction as to where to go or what to do. My bags did not arrive on the carousel, either did anyone else’s that had been bumped. We walked up to the check in desk only to be told to consult the baggage service desk downstairs. Upon doing that we were told to go back to the check in desk. After going to the check in desk again we were told to go to the customer service desk. After doing that and waiting another half hour, we were given new tickets and told that our baggage had left on our original flight and would be waiting for us in Barcelona once we got there. Our compensation for all of this hassle was only a free meal from the restaurant. When we went to the restaurant we were told that we were only allowed one of the cold sandwiches and a small drink. Absolutely appalling as we were starving and exhausted. All of the flights were also delayed, however all the boards continued to say they were ‘on time’. The board for the flight we eventually took said we were ‘on time’ despite the fact we were still standing at the gate at the time we were supposed to depart. After arriving on a flight 5 hours later than we should have arrived, We were then told by the baggage desk that the luggage had not arrived in Barcelona and were instead back in Paris. So the staff in Paris blatantly lied just to get us to leave them alone. No apology was offered at any point of this whole ordeal, no compensation other than a sandwich and a bottle of water, and i’m now left with absolutely nothing but the clothes on my back. Not even a complimentary toothbrush which has been given to me along with toiletries and a t-shirt the last time my bags were delayed. Absolutely appalling from all aspects of this whole company. I am sorry to say I’ve already booked my return flight, however after that flight I am never flying Vuelig again!"
Pros: "Plane was on-time and I got to where I needed to be. Price was also very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a painful long queue. Plane was crammed and hot. Food / Beverage cart didn't come around until the flight was almost over."
Cons: "All the agents were not professional, stupid and did not explained to the pasengers which line to check in. Took me 1and 1/2 hour to check in and went to 2-3 differents lanes and keep waiting each lane for long time."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Better way of boarding as priority boarding still involved a long wait and it was far from clear which line to stand in."
Cons: "Delayed an hour."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about an airline that appears to have low fares and then nickel & dimes you for everything, typical bait-and-switch style of doing business."
Cons: "First of all, this airline needs to train their staff better. The gate agent I dealt with on a flight has no business in any field where she would be required to work with people. Second, this airline needs to get their s*@t together when it comes to baggage. I was humiliated (by the creature they hired for a gate agent) when I was forced off the boarding line and then demanded to pay 200 euros (cash only and in euros only) for carry-on luggage that was under the size and weight requirements, and had already flown, without incident, on numerous flights during the same trip. I filed a complaint with Ryanair and weeks later received a very passive, useless, response from some brain-dead individual in corporate I suppose. No one at Ryanair cared about the mafioso-type treatment my family and I, including my 80-year-old mother, received. Avoid this airline at all costs (literally and figuratively)! It will not save you money, or anything else. It will only cost you more!"
Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "Waiting in hallway and then tarmac to board."
Cons: "I don't think it was very clear when I made the reservation that paying for a checked bag was only one way. I would like to have some reminder or notification that I had selected only one way. I was surprised to have to pay for the bag on the way back. And it was significantly more than on the website."
Pros: "There wasn't anything I enjoyed about this particular flight"
Cons: "It was too hot, 2 hours on tarmac before we finally took off. Saw passengers luggage sitting in the pouring rain with no cover over them. Water was 4 euro!"
Pros: "The staff was good and attentive even under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "I took two flights today. Both were late. Ryanair also lost my baggage."
Pros: "It is a cheap flight. I don’t espect first class. The ride was smooth, the flight was cheap, the cabin crew were friendly and it wasn’t horrendously dirty."
Cons: "I had to print the boarding pass on my own, cannot get it at the airport. Also the fact that they delay in telling you where the gate is and then it is a 10 minutes stride to get there."
Cons: "We had to wait 2 hours on board + 1 hour 40mn in the airport !"
Cons: "I couldn’t get the flight because I couldn’t find a good services from their representatives in airport. I went to 4 desks with no helpful. So, I change this airline to Easyjet. I’ll never use Ryanair."
Pros: "The staff is rude."
Cons: "Never heard of having to keep windowns open the entire flight."
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized queue, 'Priority boarding' was ignored for everyone who purchased, then a nearly 2hr delay in a hot airplane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and even the crew seemed to be getting no information about it. Ryanair did nothing to compensate their passengers for a 2 hour delay."
Pros: "It was over quick."
Cons: "Seats dont recline, no free drinking water, unorganised when too many bags onboard, nl change for buying products with cash."
Pros: "Staffs are very helpful."
Cons: "Should get some drink at least some water."
Pros: "It took off roughly on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, checking in was annoying (just lots of steps to be done with lots of ppl who don’t travel often and less helpful staff), and the plane smelled odd."
Cons: "I didn’t know that I had to pay and extra £15 just to get a seat! I thought I already paid enough for my ticket ."
Pros: "two days before a bank holiday to Ibiza, this was significantly cheaper than other airlines. Departed on time"
Cons: "Waiting for check in look about 50 minutes. When I got to the front I was 1kg over the allowed 20kg and had to leave to pay £11 at another counter and come back to check in. Note the allowance on other airlines are 23kg. Security screened my hand luggage twice. The reason was that the chargers for the camera, laptop, phone, etc was 'too dense in the bag' and had to be done seperately. This took about 25minutes. I am glad I arrived at the airport two hours before take off because by the time I checked in and passed security, there was just enough time to buy food and walk to the boarding gate. The flight itself was noisy. People played music and danced in the aisle, the cabin crew just left it and did not serve the middle of the plane. But the party goers brought their own drink on board and kept going."
Cons: "A small delay but not the airline’s fault"
Cons: "Delays over and hour after we were loaded in plane. No food or drinks offered for their delay"
Pros: "The plane started, landed and took me where I wanted to go. That's the good news."
Cons: "The pricing structure is highly opaque and they nickel and dime you in every possible way. If you don't print out your boarding card, if you don't check in online… you can't make it up they charge you when you have a hiccup. It's disgraceful and shameless. You discover these extra fees along the way because they don't mention this up front and in bold letters—for a good reason."
Cons: "Lateness and the waiting in the area to board with about 6 other flights in a small area with confusing announcements"
Cons: "Horrible boarding. Horrible seats. Garbage sandwiches for a fee. Zero entertainment. Not even a seat pocket. Toilet was disgusting, no wipers. Hyper stressed. Glad it's over, baby! Never ever, again."
Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap!"
Cons: "I find it incredibly ridiculous that a flight is half full and I’m deliberately seated away from my husband just so Ryan Air can make an extra £4 per seat. I get that they want to make money but that’s pushing it too far. I sat next to someone who was also traveling with someone else. That lady’s companion came back and told her the seat next to her was empty. By then everyone was already settled in. Is it really worth the £8 for two people? I’m sorry but that’s just petty."
Pros: "I took 1230 flight from stansted airport to Edinburgh. I carried a personal baggage with me on the plane then flight attendant took it away and told me I will get it back at the arrival belt. When I landed I couldn’t find mine. I had reported to the ground desk and they not helpful at all. So now I lost all of my travel documents and money. I feel so bad. This Tuesday I will fly back to Thailand and still don’t know how to redo my passport."
Pros: "All was good, no problems at either end. Flight was on time and we cleared Passport and Customs with ease. We had the correct size baggage, unlike a great number of passengers, and sailed through with ease. Well done Ryan Air we will be back."
Cons: "All good no complaints whatsover"
Pros: "No pude abordar por un error de la gente de atencion al cliente y despues viaje por otra aerolinea pagando nuevamente mi pasaje"
Cons: "Had to wait for plane to be ready outside the building- on the street just upfront of the plain"
Pros: "Well heck it’s cheap at least. Make sure you pay for upgrades."
Cons: "You get nickelled and dimed for everything. Seats are cramped. Lots of drunk people. Miserable staff."
Pros: "All is great. Just tired after a long day...."
Pros: "I liked that I got a seat on the plane and it didn't fall out of the sky"
Cons: "Stansted Airport was just a complete shambles. Ryanair used a gate thhar had almost no seating and the flight left 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Nothing although crew were friendly"
Cons: "3 hour delay in both directions this week. No announcements made about delay. Gates changed 2x. Poor communication throughout. Email from Ryanair about cancellation/refund options received AFTER flight. Got home at 1 am. Truly horrible experience"
Pros: "Airport OK. Efficient service. On time arrival."
Cons: "Gate area bit narrow and clumsy. Walk to plane. Deposit your own bag on large trolley outside plane due to opportunistic charging policy of RyanAir. Seat basic no recline. No seat pockets. No wifi. Still paying £200 return.."
Pros: "We managed to arrive."
Cons: "I disliked the lack of information about the delays, the poor facilities and extremely rude staff. It’s understandable that they’ve been working all day, but unfortunately this is the job they chose and I am paying for service of which I should be satisfied with."
Cons: "As usual with ryan air it's all about the cash. Missed my flight because of lip balm and a baggage check and then when I asked for help. They basically did nothing. I will never fly with you again. Luckily managed to get a B.A flight for £95.00 the same day and Ryan air wanted £413.00"
Cons: "Stansted airport is very poor. Not enough space, facilities or anything. Ryanair flight delayed. “Boarded” into cramped holding area. Very poor form."
Pros: "With Ryanair, you can only really like the price and the people. To be fair though, m the toilet was clean.."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7.30 am, but was still refueling after an earlier flight at that time. In a way it was lucky that it was late; if it had been in time, we would have been queueing on the Stansted tarmac in the rain. As it was, the rain had just stopped while we waited at the foot of the aircraft stairs. We actually took off 45 mins late. The new, additional-cost priority boarding is a joke: almost everyone was a "priority". Several passengers didn't understand the long "priority" queue, so joined it only to be turned away at check-in."
Pros: "The pilot on the plane at least attempted to explain and apologise. The only RyanAir staff member that seemed to have any slight sense of customer service at Stanstead."
Cons: "Everything. RyanAir Website and app weren’t working so couldn’t download boarding pass and had to queue to sort out. The operator then refused to check our bags into the hold and said we had to take them on plane. Complained as had liquids in case that we didn’t want to throw away and had to queue again for half an hour. The same operator then checked the bags in inexplicably without question - totally pointless waste of our time and theirs. Then we arrived at the gate just in time for it opening and was forced to queue for an hour as the plane was delayed without any explanation or apologies. Hope I am never unfortunate enough to travel with this airline again."
Pros: "Ship flight"
Cons: "Flight was delay, and I don't see crew doing the best to make the people confortable. Or happy to flight"
Pros: "we did not receive the boading check in pass even we did an online check in and end up we have to pay 55pounds extra"
Pros: "Boarding was by bus but worked out ok."
Cons: "Chaos over seating families together, one family of two adults and two infants got moved twice, another family was moved once due to allocated seating not putting families together. We eventually offered our seats to try and help out which eventually the reluctant crew accepted. Emergency exits row passenger was allowed to keep their handbag and another had a plastic bag under their seat. (Regulations state no bags at emergency exits). One passenger was chatting using his mobile phone during taxi out. Captain having exited the flight deck for a break then opened the cockpit door and whilst remained open then proceeded to have a nice chat with the cabin crew. Crew were having a bad day. Food was over cooked and nasty. Seat comfort apauling no elbow room and no legroom, still as Ryanair say you only get what you pay for whereas I’d rather have value for money rather than just a cheap and nasty experience."
Cons: "Excessive time to pass security, opening every bags, we were 30 passengers not able to board because Ryan Air agent didn’t wait and closed the door right in front of us when we arrived at the gate."
Pros: "Humor of the pilot"
Cons: "One hour delay, which we had to be in the plane, and was VERY hot inside, like 35C+ and more. Total inappropriate. Noise from passengers. Tight places between seats in front of me and me. Tight places on seats between me and next passenger next to me. FastTrack was not so fast, didn't felt it is something special and priority for me and my wife. Had to wait with the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "It was a cheap flight. Crew on board was ok."
Cons: "Plane arrived at Stansted late. The queues were horrendous and not clearly marked. One of the ground staff was very rude to an Indian lady who only asked if it was the correct queue to be in. Perhaps the customer was Indian born and the ground staff was British born of Indian descent? Flight arrived late to destination by about 30mins."
Cons: "Everything about Ryanair"
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
Pros: "The Price of the flight that was all."
Cons: "Very unorganized no idea about time scheduling boarding right up until take off and then spent nearly a further hour trying to get off of the run way. No reason given just blamed ground staff at the airport no apology felt very unprofessional. Should of made me effort explaining why we were delayed had to cancel plans as we were nearly an hour later than taking off was planned."
