Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Video was good, seats were good."
Cons: "Man doing the check-in in Madrid (site 909) was very rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "they lie to you, they tell you that your luggage is included and then it's not and it cost you $300 more. only one meal in 9 hour flight. Find another company and another searcher"
Pros: "Between this nonstop and Iberia’s nonstop, these seats are much more more comfortable, they recline and there is actual legroom."
Cons: "There was no air"
Pros: "They let me sleep and didn’t wake me for food or beverages."
Cons: "Boarding was down a jetway, down a light of stairs, stand around in the heat while they get the busses to the bottom of the stairs, and then cattle call onto the jet. Other than checking IDs and boarding passes, there was no organization to the process at all."
Pros: "Too long ago!"
Cons: "I missed the flight so I don’t have any feedback."
Pros: "GOOD SPACE FOR THE LEGS, AND COMFORTABLE SEAT"
Cons: "SINCE I WAS SEATING IN THE BACK SEAT, IT WAS REALLY HOT, NO AC COMING OUT OF THE LAST ROW OF VENTS"
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Small and old aircraft, worse food and the entretainment is almost inexistent, you need to use your device to download an app, is ridiculus,"
Cons: "The food it wasnt good"
Cons: "Boarding took 3 hours"
Cons: "There was no entertainment system, it was a short flight anyway"
Cons: "The hidden baggage fees was a surprise when checking in. I have never not been allowed one check in bag for an flight from Europe to the US. The crew did what was needed but made you feel like they were doing you a favour by showing up for work. Other airlines such as emirates, ethiad, virgin Australia all make a person feel welcome with great attention to detail international flight from Europe to the US. I will never fly air Europa again as I feel they are dishonest. The charge for the headphones is ridiculous when the entertainment is limited (most tv series will have one episode and the shows are old) The food was sub par. The sandwich with one sliver of ham was pathetic and the main meal was lacking with only chicken and rice, a small desert, no fruit/ salad and or crackers with cheese which is the norm on international flights."
Pros: "People and new plane"
Cons: "We have to take a bust to catch the plane. It ya to drive for ages! We left about 40mins later than schedulled."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I was ticketed on AirFrance/Delta, but I guess they are a part of Skyteam and the plane was Air Europa Old decrepit aircraft, that had years of accumulated dirt between seats and such No personal TV screens Food was as bad as it gets for the snack, though the main meal was as they all are except more frugal. Headphones were available for 3 euros- never had that occur on an international flight. I will always ask if my ticket includes Air Europa as an operator and avoid them if that is the case"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule out and inbound."
Cons: "Paid for wifi didn't work for me."
Pros: "Check in at airport staff Alba was very nice and helpful. Airplane crew was friendly but some of the air hostesses push their way through the pushing customers"
Cons: "Needed my family to be together at flight. Customer service was useless and did not help to resolve the problem. It was only resolve at last minute at the airport check in. Jose the supervisor at sift 10!am was like a robot about the allocation sitting. Did not understand personal circumstances to have a family flying together on a 9 house flight. Customer service is generally useless and a very unpleasant experience, the new seat charges and the inflexibility is making me wonder if I will choose air Europa again for my flights from the US. Flight was also delay due to some lugage delays. Pretty messy experience overall."
Pros: "This is the most basic service of just get on the plane type of travel. Nothing is included. They would charge you for the air you breath if they thought they could get away with it."
Cons: "My carry-on of clearly leagal size was tested to see if it passed. Happy to say IT PASSED they could not charge me. No in flight entertainment as there is no place to put a headphone into. They tell you to use your smart phone. The flight attendants disappear and really are not there for any reason I could see except to find ways to charge you for something. When they do show up they basically try to ignore you."
Pros: "Imagine that I lost my flight and I had to rebook another flight that departed from Milan - Copenhagen and from Copenhagen - Miami... I paid $1,200 to get this flight... plus I lost my flight that they didn't want me to board in... plus imagine, the €150 for my luggage that they dropped it for me by the baggage claim in Malpensa airport, after I was rejected to board the aircraft... Believe me that I am not much concern about the loss of money that happened to me in this situation, as I am more concern about IS BEING AN ARABIC MUSLIM PERSON, was the reason to lose my flight??? Really guys??? Why really??? I am not a terrorist... I love everyone and I expect people to respect me for who I am, not for where I am coming from..to keep repeating same word ( Arabo Arabo ) ???..... I just need fair judgemental... I've been flying with Air Europa many times and love the company but now I will remain in shock the rest of my life with this experience, to be discriminated in that level from different representatives of this company in Malpensa, Milan... I felt that I need to speak and seek fair judgemental... may I really get an answer?? My name is Abdelrahman Morsy Flight# UX 1066 Confirmation# 073-807-352 Departure: Malpensa (MXP) Arrival: Barajas (MAD) Time: Thu Oct 26 2017 10:45 am CEST - Thu Oct 26 2017 1:05 pm CEST I will remain waiting for fair answer.... and if I am bad person as the lady called me, I will walk away with respect... Thank you.. Abdelrahman Morsy. An Arabic, Egyptian and Muslim HUMAN who loves everyone.. and will never hate anyone.. No To Racism...."
Cons: "I'm curious with Air Europa for not thoroughly detailing me at the time of booking about the extraneous and very unreasonable check-in baggage fee for €60!! For checkin in 1 bag at the counter! The website was deceptive in its wording with 1 baggag is free and the rest has a fee. Therefore, i understood that i didn't have to purchase a check in luggage fee. That right there is living expense that I depended on for my trip. Thanks Air Europa! The check-in agent and another Air Europa representative at the Madrid airport did little to anull my fee that I felt mislead about. That was terrible customer service! I tried to give my flight a chance, but the touch down landing was probably one of the worst jolted sloppy touchdowns I've experienced. I looked around to see other's surprised reaction. I don't know of how Air Europa stocks or current state of economy are; but after dropping €60 for 1 checked in luggage, I'd expect a free beverage or light snack provided. Even the hot tea was €2.50. Im not happy and warning other's not to use this airline."
Pros: "The seats had a power station so I could charge electronics in flight. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "We took off 30 minutes late without an explanation. The crew never spoke to me or asked if I needed anything. I was bumped many times by crew members as they walked past."
Cons: "I am a skyteam member and have platinum status with delta and prior to leaving for my trip I had contacted air europa with my skymiles number and was told baggage was included. Upon arrival to airport my status was ignored and I was refused when asked to speak with a manager. I ended up having to pay 60 euros in baggage fees and then was not allowed to board as sky priority despite showing the airline my status."
Pros: "New airplane,"
Cons: "Madrid Rome, charged for water."
Pros: "Didn't care for just one movie choice but I liked the price!"
Pros: "Very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Can't complain everything was good."
Pros: "It was good they had pillows. It was fast, the boarding"
Cons: "TV was awful because movies were old and besides, we had to pay for wi fi services. there was no space."
Pros: "The boarding was easy. Having a blanket and pillow at my seat."
Cons: "The delay and short time between flights to get to gate and get through customs. Having no in flight entertainment for a 7.5 hour flight. There was not a vegetarian snack option for my daughter."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good proportion of quality-price for the airfare. Pleasant ride on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with features like the electronic dimmers on the windows."
Cons: "One hour into flight, the entertainment system shut down. The flight attendants tried their best to revive it, and managed to do so after 3 or 4 hours. All passengers applauded."
Pros: "The tvs on this flight worked, and they gave you water when you asked for it."
Cons: "Our flight from Barcelona on Air Europa took off late (because they shuttle you out in groups of 40 to the tarmac to board the plane). We arrived in Madrid and about 37 Boston bound passengers had to make a mad dash through the airport from terminal E to terminal A... a 22 minute dash. When we landed there was already "final boarding" listed. ( It would have been nice if the told us they would/could hold the plane). afyer our sweaty group arrived, we were stuck on the tarmac an additional 55 minutes because of traffic."
Pros: "The prive was ok"
Cons: "Late, disorganized boarding, group pf adolesccentes traveling behind me were very rowdy and on an early morning flight they have to be asked by the flight personnel to be respectful to the other passengers"
Cons: "As my connecting flight was late due to the check-in debacle, I had very little time to make it to this flight. After running I made it, and my assigned seat had a broken chair! In fact the whole thing, including the newspaper holder and the screen were broken. The flight attendant was not shocked by this at all, simply suggested to use the seat next to me if no one was using it. The entertainment on these flights is awful! Only a few very old movies, and you have to pay 3 euros for the head phones. The planes they have are quite old and broken all around."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time and seats were comfortable for airline seats."
Cons: "Departing Madrid airport while watching my luggage sit on the tarmac. It turns out their was too much weight and some luggage had to be left behind for another flight. I did get my luggage 24hrs later thankfully."
Pros: "Great price to value ratio, attentive crew, good food. Wifi available."
Cons: "Older panes with no phone jack charging options. What's the use of Wifi if your battery runs low or dies. They have charging ports in Business Class. I don't remember the last time I was on a plane with at least phone charging ports."
Cons: "1.5 hrs delay in arrival. there were 9 people at the departure gate. The plane was at the gate two hours before departure; but the flight is delayed due to 'late arrival' of the equipment??? Air bus 330, circa 1970. toilets were worn out; tv screens were flickering (can't even see what's on the screen on the walls), wifi cutting in and out, meal was poor; main dish, bread and desert, that's it. In Madrid, after the flight from Zurich landing in terminal E, it was a 45 min walk to terminal A, international terminal. No bus, no assistance, no one to ask how to get there if one is in a hurry. no info desks to be found anywhere. I can't even imagine for a disabled person. THe airport crew with a cart would not give a ride to an old lady with cain. Wow. It is the worst airport anywhere I have flown out of. The check in process was less than good or efficient. I would not fly this airline nor connect through Madrid."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and courteous. Aircraft and cabin was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was pretty poor with the 2nd "meal" being awful. It's what to expect with a discount airline though. Worst was that a duty free item was pilfered out of checked luggage."
Cons: "There wasn't any entertainment. But this was a short flight, so was expected."
Cons: "Flight was over 1,2 hours late leaving MAD, causing me to miss my Cancun connection and costing me over $300.00 in hotel bills and re-booking fees. This alone trumps any positive aspects of the flight."
Cons: "I particularly hate this airline as the flight teams always seem overworked and under prepared. The flight attendants were yelling at all the passengers and threatened to kick people off the plane for trivial reasons. At the end off the day I guess you get what you pay for as this was the cheapest flight available and the service was mediocre at best"
Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "- you need to pay for everething !!!!"
Pros: "The entertaiment and the crew were fine."
Cons: "I did not like the food and I spent more than an our in the line of aireuropa in Madrid airport to check in the luggage. The space between sits us not enough."
Pros: "It got us to our destination. A member of the crew, the male attendant (can't remember his name), was very kind and helpful. We sat in the emergency exit row and it was the first time an attendant ever went over evacuation procedures for sitting there. (We always try to get the exit row bc I am six feet tall.) He was personable and funny and made us comfortable after waiting a long time to finally board."
Cons: "We couldn't find it! Our boarding pass said go to Gate ABC however that's not a thing. Each Gate A, Gate B, and Gate C had like 60 options. The crew from the previous flight didn't mention how to find connections or where to go and when we asked airport employees, they took one look at our ticket and said they didn't understand what Gate ABC meant. We saw a board and discovered it was Gate B65---a 45 minute run/walk away. We ran through the airport. We heard our flight being announced as final boarding so we ran even faster. When we got there, the attendant asked us if we were transfers and we confirmed. She then said that she was about to call our names. We were relieved we made it in time. Then we got on the bus to get to the train and waited 35 minutes!!! Why were we rushed through the airport only to wait on the bus?? Other people boarding after us did not look rushed at all. Also, the female crew member kept telling my mom to move her purse. My mom explained that it was attached to her outfit and that she wore it through takeoff but the attendant didn't listen because she just said again that my mom had to stow it. But it was part of her clothes! It couldn't detach! My mom explained again but the attendant said back "it is our policy to store purses." It was frustrating bc she either wasn't listening or didn't understand even when my mom showed her it was attached. She just stood there looking at my mom. It was attached to her jacket so my mom finally said whatever and had to take off her entire jacket (scarf was also attached) and put it in the overhead bins all because the woman seemed like she didn't understand English."
Pros: "In miami and in Madrid The flight Was delayed . The rest was excellent . I didn't have any problems with my luggage not charges at all that's why I am not very upset with the delay problems the crew was superb !! I will flight again with AirEurope !"
Cons: "They are always late, they charge for everything..."
Cons: "The long delay."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Be prepared to take a bus to the airplane. No perks of any sort."
Cons: "Paying for my seat I didn't fet"
Pros: "timeliness and attentive staff."
Cons: "Tne Air Europa departures site at Barajas is like a State Secret- almost impossible to find. The airport info is no more helpful. Once you do get to Terminal I, there are No signs directing you to their ticketing desks. You have to go askina people and praying they do not mislead you ,to finally find it literally at landsend. It would be very helpful if the airline included information as to the correct terminal and the position of the baggage and boarding pass check in in its reminder of the scheduled flight. I hesitate to travel with them again because of the airport experience, not their service once you find them."
Cons: "If they could be on-time. This one was half hour late"
Pros: "Yes and yes"
Cons: "For what it is that you offer I am not sure what more I should expect. All staff were courteous and friendly. Great job."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Boarding was late"
Pros: "Friendly staff okay service"
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane when everyone was boarding then was told to go back to the boarding gate because the plane was not ready yet. Then had to check in to the gate again. Journey was a bit rough too."
Pros: "Easy boarding and quick to receive baggage in Gatwick"
Cons: "Late opening of check-in. 2 desks allocated so 2 long queues. 20 mins into check-in the queue I was in changed to priority boarding. This necessary information should have been indicated in advance as 90% of the passengers were in the wrong queue. As for aircrew 1 of the female crew was miserable as sin and unhelpful to most passengers"
Cons: "Why make you board the plane and then tell you there is a 45 minute delay"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. I felt valued as a passenger. EasyJet seem to try to improve their process continually."
Cons: "Nearly every EasyJet flight I take is delayed. I know this can be beyond their control but I think scheduling is a bit tight. That said they keep you updated often and delay times go down as well as up."
Cons: "The airline is perpetually delayed. Food options are not vegan friendly. The crew is not very service centric"
Cons: "Late and the crew wasn't helpful"
Cons: "Being late on both journeys! With no explanation"
Cons: "Late like usual"
Cons: "Being charged £90 when Inhad to change a typo on my boarding card. When I looked at my bc I saw that there was a typo. In the middle name section I had mis typed my name sstor..I finally worked out how to amends it..I corrected it & the next screen charges me £90.."
Pros: "I have been a fan of Easyjet for years but my last four experiences with them have been poor to say the least. A return flight to Naples earlier in the year and now Palermo shows that their attitude to customer care is slipping badly. All four flights were delayed to a greater or lesser degree. That happens and is usually beyond the control of the airline. What is not beyond their control is the way that they communicate during the delay and the way they treat their passengers. We are people not self-loading freight. Easyjet is fast becoming as bad as British Airways and they are by far the worst. A very frustrating and sad thing to see. The beginning of the end for Easyjet?"
Cons: "Abysmal communications. A don't care attitude. Not my problem syndrome. Treating passengers like cattle."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "It was delayed like the previous flight with easyJet to the holiday destination"
Cons: "Began 'boarding' the plane despite the fact people had not got of plane that had arrived from London. We waiting in corridor thing that leads to plane for over 20 minutes"
Pros: "Customer service was good"
Cons: "Delays both ways, hours waiting, no update throughout the process and if we are even 10 minutes late after staying updated online with the delayed flight times, we get told off satimof weeks can't board the flight."
Pros: "Was meant to be a 21.40 flight that was delayed until midnight"
Cons: "Arrived at gatwick after public transport closed with no assistance offered"
Pros: "Pilot's way of explaining delays & diverted route"
Cons: "FRANTIC at Marseille Airport Easyjet security check area Then after unexplained delays, at gate entrance my hand luggage was refused even though it was organised the same way as my outward journey and that was OK. Aggressive checker said it couldn't have been Easyjet - I don't lie, and my outward journey was Easyjet. Had to repack & so spoilt some contents. We were left standing in gate area for ages without explanation."
Pros: "Crew were really nice"
Cons: "Queue and staff at Nice airport were so poor/slow. Also flight was delayed"
Pros: "The welcome, the staff, everything was FAR better than my last flights with easyJet."
Cons: "New lights, lady behinds light was directly on our sleeping baby's head and we had to hold our hand over his eyes!"
Cons: "Decompression before landing was awful."
Cons: "Boarding time was very long.... once on the plane i wanted to sip my red wine bought at the duty free the flight attendant told me in a direspectful mannner that I was not allowed to drink any other alcohol than the one on their Bistro menu. When we Landed in london we were stuck on the ground for 15 good minsb never again!"
Cons: "Fairly cramped seats, constantly trying to sell me stuff at ridiculous prices"
Cons: "the Madrid - Bristol connection is a mess. Grossly delayed on the way up and down, which in the case of a night flight can let you stranded in the airport to wait for the next bus to the southwest for a couple of hours, like it happened to me."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Overpriced water £1.80 for small bottle rounded up to €2.50 - double ripoff"
Pros: "New laptop ban was notified by email and text, so all ready when I arrived at airport. This is a lowish cost airline and crew were good, but does offer really good value and worth paying a bit more than some of the cheapest out there. Not too much different to BA, but friendlier and better value. Flight was a bit late leaving, but arrived pretty much on time. Food is also pretty good value, high street cafe prices, although the ham and cheese toastie is not recommended. But everything else was fine."
Cons: "Laptop ban is a pain, but not Easyjet's fault."
Pros: "The flight was very late over an hour late and as a results I have to take taxi from schipol airport to Amersfoort which cost me a lot"
Pros: "Crew pleasant and professional. Explained the headwind would add time"
Cons: "No gate number posted at airport just told the flight was boarding!"
Pros: "No issues on outward flight, flight arrived early"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed for an hour and passengers were not informed why there was a delay until the captain mentioned it."
Pros: "Slight delay in boarding which seemed due to ground staff shortage resulting in 30 minute delayed departure, but overall the flight was good - no complaints."
Cons: "Being delayed Not being told anything"
Pros: "Air being recycled"
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "When boarding, they call out speedy boating holders, they forgot to call out families with children's"
Pros: "Everything went smooth & as planned"
Pros: "Easy boarding--priority boarding"
Cons: "So far to walk"
Pros: "Full flight. One working bathroom. The seatbelt light stayed on longer than I've ever seen on a flight and I was begging the crew to go to the bathroom. Utterly ridiculous. 200 people and one bathroom. Get it together."
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff good."
Cons: "Would not have wanted to be on the flight any longer as there wasn't much leg room."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "You gave us no support and little guidance when we had to find our way from Gibraltar airport to the coaches waiting to take us to Malaga airport today for our rearranged flight to gatwick. No one was there to show us where the coaches were, the snack was chocolate and crisps, the meal handed to us in Malaga was a ham baguette! So for us who eat healthy, or gluten intolerant, or vegetarian there was no food available all day... So no support, little directions, no real food and no care... Unless I have to I will never choose to fly easyjet again"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, good leg room as somehow got allocated exit row. Toilets nice and clean"
Cons: "One hour late taking off. I checked in carry on luggage when requested " for the greater good" but added time to journey - shouldn't be necessary. Long bus ride from plane to terminal also added time. Everything else ok"
Pros: "Makeing up lost time"
Cons: "Time taken to board"
Pros: "Crew was superlative."
Cons: "Super tight seats did not recline. Flights are not confirmed had 2 flights cancelled and had to fight to get onto another flight. Tough with a baby and toddler."
Cons: "Approx 35 min delay on departure from London. Long waite time on getting off the plane."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the flight crew sounded professional and kept us informed of progress. the food was fine and not horrendously priced."
Cons: "the plane was late arriving and the information received on KAYAK and the Easyjet app did not match the information displayed in the terminal (the apps were correct)"

Pros: "Cabin staff"
Cons: "Huge trek to gate. Late - again."
Pros: "Well organised. Pollute efficient staff."

Pros: "Departure and Arrival on time"
Cons: "Too short distance to fly... :)"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Three hour delay. Seats are so uncomfortable"
Cons: "We have a 5 hours delay inside the plane. The crew has to been change and the second crew is the worst crew in all my flights The captain also was change after 4 hours of delay, and is the worst captain, nothing polite"
Pros: "Vueling is a horrendous company, delayed flights - very bad organisation"
Cons: "Leg room. Better maintenance of plane. Timekeeping."
Cons: "Boarding groups (divided in groups 1, 2 and 3) unclear"
Pros: "Flight delayed, staff provided no info and was generally nasty."
Pros: "The plane was newish, with comfy seats"
Cons: "The crew spend to much time on trying to order / heat / distribute food. The distribution of the staff seems odd - the one taking all the orders, putting stuff into the microwave and collecting it, collecting the money, whilst the other just seems to steer the trolley"
Cons: "They asked me to store my suitcase in an overhead bin at the front of the plane as they had run out of space so I complied. When it was time to disembark, someone had stolen my suitcase. I have not located it since and the customer service from Vueling is horrendous - they keep running me around to different departments and sending automated responses, refusing to answer my questions."
Cons: "The flight was 1/2 late and hence arriving"
Pros: "Glad I paid for the emergency aisle. A long flight with plenty of leg room."
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and replacement flight delayed, no offer of food or compensations"
Pros: "Straightforward flight. I feel like I would fly with vueling again but from a different airport."
Cons: "It was delayed by 30/40 minutes and the price was quite expensive (but that was probably my fault)"
Pros: "Crew good"
Cons: "Booked extra legroom didn't get it."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "If your in rows 38-40 you will not get any drink or food as it takes so long for the drink trolly to reach you before landing"
Pros: "Quick boarding with the baby, very helpful friendly staff"
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 again to depart, and over 30 minutes to show reclaim belt to get the luggage"
Cons: "Flights notoriously late Staff useless Service inexistant No information provided Avoid Vueling"
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight due to an earlier plane being cancelled. My boarding pass was issued with no seat number which meant I had to wait with a large group of other people until everyone that had been allocated a seat number boarded. There was no communication from their staff and departure was delayed well over two hours. Things didn’t get much better on board as the crew left it so late to start the food service only passenger upto row 24 got the chance to buy a drink or food before they had to stop serving and prepare for landing. Add all this to the saga that was the outband flight and you’ll understand why the whole plane burst into laughter when the crew announced “welcome to Gatwick, apolagies for the delay, and we look forward to flying with you again”. Shocking service! Never again!"
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "My flight was approximately five hours delayed and I received no communications from the airline other than changing updates to departure time ranging from two hours to twenty minutes to five hours of delay. Airport staff offered no condolences or compensation."
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: "The boarding time has been changing every few minutes since the morning. I arrived in the gate where there were about 30 people with boarding passes but no assigned seats all overbooked. Half the people left on a bus then boarding stopped and we're returned back to the terminal going through security and hour or so later. The company reps had a big attitude problem and could provide no explanation to what and why anything is happening. In the end they tell us to leave the gate after 1.5 hours wait and look for new boarding info around 2pm. I managed to get on the flight by chance: no updated info was announced - I by chance heard a poor fellow working for the airline trying to find people at a nearby cafe who were supposed to be on that flight. If I had my headphones on I doubt I would be able to board that plane"
Cons: "unorganised deaprture @ barcelona airport where everyone was allowed to board at the same time. Also our flight way delayed but Vueling did not text anyone on our flight to inform us."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Boarding took place in a separate area of the airport, no access to shops. Flight was delayed, we arrived an hour late at our destination."
Pros: "Comfy seats, plenty of legroom"
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Cons: "Sitting at the back of the plane meant that we were the last to be served any food and only had about 20 mins to eat anything that was left over prior to landing. They ran out of most hot food"
Pros: "crew excellent and after much discussion they performed miracles"
Cons: "wife is disabled,told she had aisle seat,staff on board had to shift her 3 times,we were booked in together but sat apart on both trips,full marks to the cabin crew who really did a great job of moving people around but we had no help from last minute.com and less from the airline when we phoned in regard to my wifes mobility scooter.sorry its back to Easy jet."
Pros: "...and don’t really do that in a way helpful to the passenger! I couldn’t get my boarding passes from Vueling’s website, as the login details as required by Vueling, are actually those used by who “bought” the ticket - some random email used by Kayak / Lastminute.com, and not mine! Crazy! Moreover, the whole business processes that Vieling use are just dijointed. even getting help I still never received by boarding passes via email."
Cons: "Worse, Vueling charge you, on checking, to “choose seats” with no obvious way of not paying for them! I’m sure here was a link somewhere - but could I see it?! Nope! that and my suitcases, and I had paid over €100 extra on top of my initial flight cost. BA or Easyjet next time!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but that was not Vueling’s fault. Despite the delay the staff did all they could to notify passengers and leave as soon as possible."
Cons: "Our hand luggage had to go into the hull so we had a long wait at the other end. Cabin crew explained 220 people and space for 180 bags, wouldn’t mind as much but I follow the rules and only bring one bag when people in front of me have 2 bags! Too ch down was very bumpy!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful, especially because we were traveling with a sick child. They let us disembark first when we landed in London to seek medical attention."
Cons: "We only flew with this carrier because British Airways partners with them. Wouldn't have flown them otherwise."
Pros: "I've lost my job! The flight first thing in the morning should respect that we rely on them to get on time in the morning. One in 3 flights of Vueling are delayed! Ryanair is far better in this point! Today I really hate Vueling"
Cons: "I also lost the train tickets! I had to pay twice for everything. An apology is not enough, it sounds like they are laughing on us!"
Pros: "Cheap, clean, great on board crew. I arrived early for my flight and was able to change my flight to an earlier one cheaply, quickly and hassle free. Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Shocking check in. Only 2 desks open queued for 45 mins just to check in. Despite arriving in plenty of time. This was a Saturday lunchtime and the queue quickly built up and despite several members of staff being around no further desks were opened up until the queue became huge."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "clean aircraft"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "The music in the background was a nice touch to the flight."
Cons: "Insufficient leg room my knees touched the person infronts chair and when they reclined my knees were under pressure from the recline. It wasn’t very pleasant."
Pros: "Nothing !!"
Cons: "No snaks, no food, no water and no reclining seats. Vueling wants to sell you everything. Is like going to the mall. My family give you F"
Cons: "Delayed over two hours both ways. Crew didn't make it down the aisle with the trolley for refreshments. Didn't have food vouchers and would not give me more than a a small glass of water even though we were stuck on a plane for over 5 hours."
Pros: "An employee walked down the line, scanned tickets=fast process. The lines were designated by row seating."
Cons: "I'm 5'9" & knees hit the chair in front. No complimentary water or coffee. EVERYTHING was a charge. Broken armrests & other materials."
Cons: "Took no responsibility for missed flight to NYC after flight from Barcelona was delayed. It took 3 hours in Gatwick airport to get rebooked on a flight the next day. Did not agree to pay for accommodation or food or transport for the 24 hour interval between flights. Terrible."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Less than 20cm from edge of seat and back of seat in front. Late."
Pros: "The airline decided to change the plane so everyone could not fit. As a result, we have been changed to a new flight but a different airport. This is an incredibly poor airline and this type of service should not be allowed nor acceptable."
Cons: "Delay Cramped"
Pros: "The fly was delayed 45min. The spaces between seats are to small I ask for a soft bread sandwich and the staff tell me is assigned for another customer and i need to choose another one Overall was ok"
Pros: "clean aircraft. smiling smart and friendly staff. on time departure. ultra quick bag retrieval. would highly reccomend"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "they left my lugage the delayed the flight for 2 hours, terrible services"
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "The crew were very rude, there was no more overheard space in the cabin so two people in our party had to check their luggage, the washrooms at the rear of the plane were out of order and the they were out of three quarters of the food on the menu - effectively nothing to order!"
Cons: "Poor food quality, even for a budget airline"
Pros: "None of it. I understand it's a budget airline but there was just no hospitality."
Cons: "The attendants didn't do much to resolve issues. I was last on the plane and had one carry on bag which there were no rooms in the bin. She just shrugged, and told me to try and fit it under my seat, which by the way was too big, then she told me to just hold it on my lap. Everything that she said, and asked me to do was a full violation of what airline safety calls for."
"There were some individuals not using face masks properly (being almost all the time without them) and the cabin crew did not alert them at all."
Cons: "Food and drinks for free"
Pros: "On time no depay. Peacefully flight"
Cons: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Delayed. Confusion over gates."
Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "Well it is a low cost airline, you get what you pay for"
Pros: "Seat not too cramped. We didn't get lost - as BA flight did recently!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed! Info re delay was limited."
Cons: "Late takeoff - late arrival"
Cons: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"
Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."
Pros: "This flight issues were so plentiful they provided me with knowledge on how not to run an airline."
Cons: "5 X delays, Incompetent pilot, No organisation of ground crew 2.5hr late"
Pros: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."
Pros: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"
Pros: "Boarded from gate beside the executive lounge."
Cons: "Ground staff made final boarding call too soon. Had to rush from the lounge only to find no passengers had left the terminal steps to walk to the plane to board."
Cons: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"
Cons: "Very long walk on landing"
Pros: "Staff is young and energetic! Beat crew on trip so fat and we've been on three other planes."
Cons: "Seats are eat too close if you are,tall. The landing was a,3,out of 10."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."
Cons: "Flight was very late.(over 2 hours) Notices not posted timeously No meal tokens offered, or anything else to soften the irritation Boarding and offloading by stairs into the rain - cheapest possible options."
Cons: "Sitting 10 rows from my wife"
Pros: "Wish the back of the seats in front of me had the pocket to hold things."
Cons: "Tap water offer would be appreciated. Too bad the checked bag price is so high that everyone brings what they can onboard which fills up all the overhead storage. Tickets that are bought together should be seated together if possible and not just randomly assigned."
Pros: "737 800 plane much more comfortableScramble at boarding."
Cons: "Load in numerical order by ordering passengers to line up in that order"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "Was cheap"
Cons: "Was very late"
Cons: "The customer service agent was horribly rude. When asked her name, because she wasn't wearing a name tag, she said "Oh, you'd like my name? I'll be sure to write it down for you." I never ended up getting her name, but the way she treated me and my fiancé - as two customers that were very much over paying - was inappropriate and unprofessional. Never again will I fly RyanAir."
Pros: "Crew were polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours. There was no announcement that there was a delay or explanation.. The Priority boarding is very poorly organised . when we were finally let out onto the tarmac there was a mad scramble by the non priority customers to get to the plane although the one lady in charge did control things to a degree I might add that at Gatwick going to Belfast the Priority boarding was a joke. If you are going to make customers queue in the corridor please put a sign up outside to indicate the you dont't have to queue"
Cons: "We have never flown Ryan Air before and are not from Europe. We booked or flight one day prior to the flight and were shocked to show up at the airport and pay 90 euro to check in at the airport. This is simply a price gouge. I understand a small, nominal fee for this but not 90 euro! That is asinine. I will purposely avoid Ryan Air in the future as this leaves a bad taste in my mouth."
Cons: "I was told next time I have to be careful with my carry-on because I'd have to pay £50 otherwise. However, my carry-on is TSA approved, it has a lot of pockets so it may appear to be a bit bigger but I don't overstuff and I've had no issue getting my bag into the overhead bin. Granted, the officer was kind when she said it, but I also measured my bag and weighed it before my flight and I shouldn't feel there should be an issue with my bag. On my return flight I had souvenirs in my bag (meaning more in my SAME bag) and no one said a word about my carry-on."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable It was late"
Cons: "In order to ride the plane, I have to walk outside. It is very cold."
Cons: "Cramped seats did not recline; all drinks, including water, had to be paid for; plane did not have a jet bridge and passengers had to walk up and down stairs to embark and disembark. This airline takes No Frills to an entirely new level."
Pros: "The price was fantastic! the best around :)"
Cons: "There was no notification from cabin crew to advise us to ensure we collect our luggage BEFORE we go through the glass doors at Gatwick. We were expecting to show our passport and collect our luggage from the carrousel but didn't realise until after we went through the glass doors and had to wait over 40 mins for it to be brought to us. What was so astonishing- we were told we weren't the only ones this happened to. It would be very useful if cabin crew made the passengers aware of this to avoid it happening time after time with others/flights"
Pros: "The price is the main reason to fly. It was on time and efficient. Would definitely ride this airline again."
Cons: "Restrictions on baggage made me have to rearrange. Nothing major, just a slight inconvenience."
Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"
Pros: "Price - boarding was good, especially considering plane was full."
Cons: "Punctuality - about 40 mins late both ways - I kinda factor that in now!!"
Pros: "The price was right. ...at least until I figured out that my checked bag cost twice as much as my airfares ticket!"
Cons: "I think maybe I should have flown on Aer Lingus instead. Next time I will do more research. Absolutely nothing is free on Ryan. The only free thing is your carry on bag. Food, drinks, prearranged seat assignment, etc. all cost money."
Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and fairly smooth."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you have to pay extra for EVERYTHING! For a boarding pass, for any luggage (other than a small carry-on), for a seat assignment and for a cup of tea on the plane, The flight is relatively inexpensive, but you end up paying a lot of money for the"
Pros: "Ryan Air is the worst airline. They rip off unassuming people by exorbitant charges at the airport."
Cons: "The customer service is nonexistent and the companies policies ar designed to take advantage of customers."
Pros: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."
Pros: "Cheap, quick, and safe flight."
Cons: "Because the tickets are so cheap, they try to get money out of you at every turn! They charged us $20 each to print our boarding passes at the airport (it wasn't enough to have them on our phones)! They make you pay to check a bag and you have to arrange it ahead of time (cannot ask to do it at the airport). They made a big fuss about the sizes of our bags and threatened to charge up to $55 per bag if they needed to check them at the gate! They have tiny compartments at the gate but our bags fit without any issues on the plane itself."
Pros: "boarding was on time and no delays on the tarmac"
Cons: "It was way to small, no room. Rough take off and landing"
Pros: "The flight was very late and then the gate information came up almost as the flight was boarding."
Cons: "Lack of boarding information"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They will hit you for more money every chance they get. Checked baggage. Not printing boarding pass prior to getting to the airport."
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was quick."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks. But I expected that so it was fine."
Cons: "Checked our party (two adults and three kids with backpacks) of 5's hand luggage, letting most other single travelers get onboard with hand luggage. What is the point, if you choose not to travel with checked bags and at the gate they still check hand luggage?"
