Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Planes were new or well maintained."
Cons: "Confirmed seat selection does not actually mean confirmed. BA changed our seats without notice and stuck us in the back of the plane. There was no real effort to address the unexpected change. It also took the entirety of the 3 hour flight for the service cart to make it to the back of the plane. This was after a 2 hour delay during which they provided only sporadic updates. Overall, quite a poor experience which would make me hesitate to fly BA again given a choice of comparable airlines."

Pros: "it was very nice,"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and I still had a 4 hour train ride to go. My luggage made the transfer in LHR BA scanned claim checks and confirmed they had them. This was on Friday, I finally picked them up on Tuesday. They never called me, and it cost me a €70 taxi. Not happy with BA or Iberia."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."

Cons: "Coming back from my work Christmas night, my boyfriend who has Crohn's disease and is not a good flyer, asked to be put in a spare seat located nearer the front on the aisle so that he could make a quick run for the toilets as he was having a flair up. The female flight attendant said this would be fine, but then an incredibly rude and abrupt male attendant warned us that we would have to move back or risk arrest and pay a fine!!!?! I wouldn't have been so offended if my partner wasn't so ill, and the attendant hadn't been so accusatory. We were marched back down the aisle, and made to feel like criminals. You pay for what you get. Flight down to London with BA was lovely in comparison - lovely staff, complementary drink and snacks, and overall a pleasant flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time Plane clean"

Pros: "Pre check in Plane was clean and comfortable Always delayed a little, is was twenty mins delay so quite good."

Cons: "We departed later than expected"
Pros: "All was normal"
Pros: "Plain itself and crew were OK."

Cons: "20kg limit on hold luggage instead of 15"
Pros: "It was uneventful and on time"
Cons: "Less turbulence!"
Pros: "clean, efficient"
Pros: "On board crew great."

Pros: "Smooth on boarding"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and could not be more helpful. It was a 2/3rds full flight, so no squabbles over baggage."
Cons: "I pay for easyJet Plus and it should mean my bag comes up first, but it was one of the last."
Pros: "The crew were efficient."
Cons: "The flight left late. The seat was uncomfortable for me ( that is usual ) My major problem is that I was charged £247 and then a further £378 when I had to re book due to easy jet systems changing the dates. I am certain I booked the correct dates."

Cons: "Mediocre, flight delayed toldto go to gate, Checked at gate after 1hr returned to departures the back to gate checked again, problem with seatbelt had to ask multiple times for Help. Not sorted went through flight unfastened with buckle issue, flight attendant attitude very poor."
Pros: "Pretty excellent overall. Boarding very speedy."
Pros: "Nothing, staff didnt even attempt to help me once i eventually for the gate for easyjet and the gate had closed (due to staff telling me to go to departures after showing that i didnt have a boarding pass)"
Cons: "The lack of help recieved by staff throughout the airport to help me get to the correct gate. After 30 mins of asking different staff where to go and what i needed to do to get on the flight the gate for my flight was then closed which has caused me to pay for an extra flight. Due to this i will be requesting a full refund on the first flight."
Pros: "Pilot got us there in less than an hour after a three hour delay"
Cons: "Three hour delay with no explanation until we were actually on the flight. Only a £3 refreshment voucher. Couldn't hear cabin crew and they rushed through the food service. Looked like they didn't want to be there."

Cons: "The flight was delay for 20 minutes other than that is fine"
Pros: "Staff were polite and friendly. We had a peanut allergy sufferer in the family and they announced this and stopped serving peanuts which was great. Quick and smooth flight and efficient boarding. Security at Bristol was fairly quick.

Pros: "I do not like the idea not able to take my hand luggage on the plane"
Cons: "The price is extremely misleading as they charge almost as much a ticket per luggage."
Pros: "Nothing. Do not fly. They are horrible and have horrible service."
Cons: "When we got up to the register we had to fork up over $80 for bags that could have even been carry-on's. While booking there was nothing stated about these charges. If this was going to be a charge it should have been made clear. Very unimpressed and displeased with the service from Ryanair."
Pros: "It was very poor and misleading regarding the price. To charge 45 Pounds for a suitcase borders on rip off."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything"

The funny was that the plane departure at 16:20 that was freaking out and Im never gona take that airline ! I always chose Norwegian but i was thinkkng that they have change little bit ° , in Norwegian one time they wait for me 20 minutes 20 minutes !

Pros: "Really disappointed"
Pros: "Airport security was efficient."
Cons: "Every group on plane seemed to have been purposely split up even though there were many empty seats. Difficult to book luggage on the website. They said there were strict size limits on cabin bags, but when we got to the gate they didn’t check any - we had to pay for an extra bag in hold when we could have just used a bigger bag for hand luggage. Everything was difficult. Bag drop didn’t work - we had to queue to to go to the desk 3 times and the lady eventually did it herself. Staff were polite and nice."
Cons: "Boarding in Manchester was a disaster. Scanned boarding passes, let everyone down the stairs to the apron, only for to be told to come all the way back up the strairs again because of a change of aircraft. Had to do the whole pre boarding and boarding process all over again. More interested in selling hot Panninis rather than check if we had a belt for our baby. Even after doing safety checks, they passed us and still didn’t have a belt for our baby. Only when we called them back And asked for a belt did we get one, and all this whilst the aircraft was moving. Waited over 25 minutes for our buggy bag to come out the baggage belt in Dublin."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly, courteous and professional."
Cons: "Literally everything from checking in to seat and baggage is unnecessarily monetized."

Cons: "40 mins late"
Pros: "Staff where nice and flight was on time"

Pros: "In flight snacks were good. Staff pleasant."
Cons: "Getting through security was a stressful nightmare. I had no idea what to put where. Was just given a tray and expected to know. Signs said inhalers needed to be in plastic bag but website said meds were ok but keep handy. Threatening notices said if you get it wrong your bag will be searched and you can be delayed for up to half an hour (the inference being you could miss your flight). Vowed not to fly again although may get over it!"
Pros: "Keeps to schedule. A high performing low cost airline."
Cons: "Cost of the food and drinks but I’ll still fly with Ryanair again."
Cons: "Everyone stood up the entire flight and being split up from family."

Cons: "Long wait before getting on the aircraft"
Pros: "The staff were friendly, the boarding crew clear and quick."
Cons: "Late take off, shouldn't happen for a regular short haul flight, meant I was too late arriving at my final destination"
Cons: "The landing very bumpy"
Cons: "Needed more self service bag drop off terminals and better instructions on how to use them. Queue to drop off bags was ridiculous."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Boarding was good. Left & arrived on time. Crew very efficient in spite of the problems encountered with passengers."
Cons: "The flight was not so much Ryanair as Liverpoolair. There were hen & possibly stag parties on board who had obviously had a lot to drink , were very noisy including when the safety procedures were being announced & the crew had to constantly deal with passengers who would not obey instructions."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "Everything, firstly I checked in early as recommended to find that my wife and I were not sat together. It gave me the option to change one of our seats, stating that it would only increase in cost if we select a more expensive seat. It turns out there were more free seats than reserved but to sit next to my wife (without changing hers) it was going to cost £10, no idea why as they hadn't selected her a more expensive seat. Guess what.....the exact same happened when checking in on our return journey, can't wait to board the plane in a couple of days! When arriving at the airport it is clear Ryanair are removing staff to keep cost down with no care for passenger satisfaction, you check your bags in automatically which appears a scam for over weighing your cases and charging you without having to speak to you. It coat us £10 for being over a kilo, we didn't believe we were but paid it as we thought we had no choice because no staff were close by. A couple beside us were supposedly 3 kilos over and believed this to be incorrect, they kicked off enough of a fuss to be able to go check in face to face and not pay a single penny, doesn't quite seem fair? The final nail in the coffin was the fact that at 8.45 (our supposed departure time) we were stuck in a huge queue watching people get off the plane we were due to board. No delays or hold ups had been announced yet we should have been boarding at 8.15 and told to go to our gate as normal for this time. No plain in sight and when it arrives we can't go straight on as people are getting off it! All in all Ryanair have been awful so far and I am dreading our flight home!"
