Flight was ok but agency forced the check in.
Transavia sent an email Where they explained they had to hire a mini plane with crew to serve us , the crew was rude , and un prepared , they splashed sparkling water all over me and two roads , no apology or nothing just 2 napkins , I paid to bring a horas my hand luggage that was refused and put it with the check inn luggage I snapped several videos of the poor and uncomfortable situations we lived and will post it later on my social media to warn people about it , and will contact the customer services at the airline so they know about it
too hot and too tight, no even small cup of water.

Pros: "It was a very nice, standard flight. Nothing remarkable good or bad."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats and legroom"

Cons: "Baggage claim was nearly one hour long"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 30 minutes and it took the crew too long to address the issue. It left the passengers wondering what was going on. While we waited the air conditioner did not work and we were left in intense heat. I still don’t know the reason why the flight was delayed because it ."

Pros: "We departed on time It was cheap to check a bag"
Cons: "No one in orly is here to communicate with passengers. Neither airline ground personnel nor airport staff"
Pros: "The crew were very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no entertainment, have to pay for everything, arrived late, bathroom smelled like pee"
Pros: "All went well with no interference."
Cons: "The boarding and bad experience at the departing gate was unprecedented!!! I am a gold & platinum traveler, due to millions of mileage flown for over 40 years. This experience that I experienced at the departing gate was unprecedented, worse than the worse charter flight from a third world country decades ago!!! Apparently Transavia has "Sky Serv" employees doing their departing gate work, and they are the worse I have encountered in my life. Rude, irresponsible, talking back to customers when they dared ask them a question, not caring about anything let alone the comfort of the customers, or advising them of status of departure. As a result, they allowed a line to form for boarding, with all the relevant shoving and pushing, including older people standing and being pushed in line, as the Shy Serv employee went behind the departure desk and THE TIME OF DEPARTURE HAD COME, so it was natural for all to stand up in line thinking they will board, while the ARRIVING PLANE HAD NOT EVEN ARRIVED. And when I realized that (also in line) I asked the Sky Serv employee who appeared as the supervisor, why are they not telling the people that so they can sit down, the answer was "we didn't tell them to stand up"!!! When I told them that I thought it was just considerate to do that, he was joined in defence by his colleagues saying "no-one told you or anybody else to stand up, you and they did". As if this was not enough, when finally the plane came, people debarked, and plane was made ready to board, we were asked to board, only to stop us on the middle of the the boarding bridge and stand there for 15 minutes with no one to tell us anything, until a member of the plane crew came out to advise us of the delay and allow us to proceed to the plane. NEVER AGAIN WILL I FLY TRANSAVIA, or any airline that has "Sky Serv" as it's ground handlers!!!!"
Cons: "Arrivato con 43’ di ritardo da sommarsi 15’ per scala e autobus non presenti . Uno scandalo"
Pros: "The crew was personable. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Transavia delayed 1:30h the flight."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "no pre-checkin on my return flight"
Pros: "I was stranded in Budapest due to weather and was thrilled to find this flight for same day travel, a few hours later and have a decent price!"
Cons: "I liked it all!"
Pros: "great crew and exellent service"
Pros: "Plane comfort was normal to good."
Cons: "Boarding staff at Orly was disgustingly rude."
Cons: "When I arrive to Orly Airport îm waiting 2 hours to the claim baggage for take my luggage, 2 hours late is very not normal..."
Pros: "That I could finally land in Madrid, actually a quick flight!"
Cons: "The delay in the flight, a mess at the time of boarding the plane, just terrible!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking were poor"
Pros: "Terrible experience. From sub par USA style security lines to delays, poor boarding.... Gong show."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I did'' that we have to pay for have water to drink !"
Cons: "water is not complimentary"
Cons: "Poor attitude from ground service at the boarding gate"
Pros: "Quick boarding comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours and we were informed about the delay until 20 mins before boarding. The service was all round horrible"
Cons: "Awful customer service, no way to handle issues or problems. Their website had a glitch that didn't allow us to pay ahead of time for checked luggage. Calling them didn't help as the call center has no ability to change anything on your booking. At the kiosk they charged us double to check our bags because that's just how that works, even though their website ate our credit card information and didn't give us an ability to pay for luggage before check in online. The whole experience has made me decide to never use them ever again."
Pros: "Staff in the plane and food options"
Cons: "The major slowness and inefficiency to board and the major delays. Trapped in te plane when they would clearly know that the destination airport would not receive the plane late because of the airport space limitations."
Pros: "Lines and delays and shuttles and more delays."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and happy to ask any questions we had when not all announcements came through in English, so we couldn't quite understand them."
Cons: "The check in process was very slow and we spent almost an hour waiting in line. We boarded on time, but then sat on the plane for over an hour because of technical issues. I would rather wait in the airport during those issues, as there is more room to stretch and move about."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "Carry on baggage allowance - I had a tiny backpack and purse and wasn't able to bring both"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, clean, good flight"
Cons: "Extremely late in boarding, unorganized approach to manage lineup or boarding process, take off was delayed."
Pros: "Very quick flight"
Cons: "Travelers need to be informed better about Ryanair's baggage restrictions."
Pros: "I loved the fact that I arrived"
Cons: "Everything else. Deservedly the worst airline in Europe"
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
Cons: "This is the terrible airlines that we have ever experienced. It’s not organized at all. After booking the ticket, I didn’t say we have to check in 2 hours prior to not to get charged at the airport. When we stand at the encounter, everyone in line didn’t know this and had to turn around to get in the different line to pay for checking in. After that, we had to get back in a long line and the lady didn’t mentioned that she can check in our luggage’s. With that being said, we had to go back to other encounter to pay for checked in luggage. We paid almost $200 for checking in and luggage. How stupid is that? We and other customers in line all said we felt it’s the rip off. We come to Ireland for vacation and expected it would be welcome and nice. This turned us off. Never fly with this airlines again. Thumbs down!!!"
Cons: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Pros: "The trip was smooth once we got a plane. Everything else was as ecpected."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and finally departed 2 hours late. Interrupted a full day’s worth of travel plans."
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!"
Cons: "A horrible airline. They charge you for everything, you have to pay a checked baggage fee for both ways. I bought a round trip ticket, if I'm bringing luggage, I'm going to want to bring that luggage back with me. You have to pay if you have more than one cabin bag, everyone boards at the same time, the plane is cramped and old. The landing was just us slamming into the runway. I can't tell you about the staff because I never saw anyone that worked there"
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "How rude the crew members were and unhelpful."
Pros: "efficient, nice clean and 'modern' plane interior - no more garish yellow interiors!"
Cons: "Up stairs and down stairs.... Wasn't particularly cheap.... public transport to and from schoenfield is excellent"
Pros: "Customer service was horrifying"
Pros: "Great service, friendly crew. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight cancelled just a day before departure."
Pros: "I like how inexpensive the flight was. This would make up for the other things had we not been seriously taken advantage when it came to our luggage!"
Cons: "We checked in online the night before our flight but didn't get a confirmation. We didn't think anything of it until we got to airport to find that we didn't show checked in, had to pay EXTRA to have our boarding passes printed off, and had to pay for EACH of our bags as well!! OH! And it's almost DOUBLE if you pay for it at the airport where you can weigh it then if you do it online! And take caution! Our bags that are considered carry on size are still too big for this airline do you will forced to check Them! This is obviously how they offset their inexpensive tickets! The cost of the ticket, once you add in all the other unexpected expenses in order to actually get on the flight, was NOT worth the "cheap" tickets we got! That's the only reason we decided to fly to Ireland while on our trip to the U.K. Had we known it would cost this much we never would have come to Ireland for two days!!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The employees were just as unhelpful flying to dublin as they were flying out of dublin. Simple questions were met with disdain and annoyance rather than polite answers. We went through 3 different people before finding out that we didn't need to go through any of them which the first person could have told us. By the way the first person was a customer service attendant and he swiftly moved us on to the next line to stand in which was completely unnecessary and a waste of everyone's time. I will never fly with ryanair again."
Cons: "This is the worst airline I have ever flown and I have been flying a long time. It was hot, cramped, both flights were late and they had us sitting on the plane. And, it really is not as cheap as it first appears with all the extra feeds."
Cons: "self service kiosks were not working in airport and we were told it would cost 50 pounds each to print boarding pass. We followed directions to try to print on our own by paying for expensive internet service at the airport but still were unable to view & print boarding passes. After talking to several rather unhelpful reps, someone at the Sky Desk made an exception to allow us "free" boarding passes. This was just after 2 people were charge full price (50L each for passes & full price to check luggage, after they didn't get promised email to check bags online) Cheap fares doesn't make up for frustration"
Pros: "I liked that they boarded the plane from the front and back. It makes the loading process go so much smoother. The planes were clean and new."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Seats are too small and don't recline. There's no entertainment. We sat on the aircraft for a hour without any explanation on why we were waiting."
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane."
Cons: "Hidden fees after hidden fees... The lady at the check in counter said my bag was fine... At the gate they said it was to big and weighed too much. £50 Extra. I bought an exit row seat because I'm big guy. The seat belt didn't fit so I asked for an extension and the flight attendant got very snippy with me and said she would not give me an extension because of "safety reasons". (This has never been the case on any other airline I have flown.) She then very rudely said because of your rather large size we are going to have to move you to another seat where we can give you an extension. Like I said I know I'm a big guy but you don't have to so loud and rude about it. At least say it with a smile and some kindness... Wow. It was just uncomfortable and not a good feeling. Later when I got to sitting in my new seat, they came through with the convince cart (no free snacks or drinks, you pay for everything.) She nor the other attendent with her asked if we wanted and thing, if we were doing alright, nothing. Thank God it was only a 1.5 hour flight. So glad that experience is over."
Pros: "the flight crew was nice and friendly when they werent trying to sell you something."
Cons: "Ryanair is a bunch of criminals that prey on the Americans traveling abroad. Yes its a discount airline but my $18 flight turned into $150 after all the hidden fees were paid for. To charge a passenger 15 pounds each to print a boarding pass is absolutely ridiculous. Everyone else around us could use their phones as a boarding pass except for the traveling Americans who did not have access to a printer while on vacation is criminal. Lesson learned, I will never fly Ryanair again and will tell every American I know not to be blinded by their discount fare."
Cons: "The announcements over the PA system are garbled. I challenge you to sit in the body of the Plane and compare the diction on the Security announcement to that of Pilots/Cabin Crew This is particularly relevant when the Pilot recommends passengers to keep their belts fastened during flights. Cabin Crew fail on repetitive announcements -such as food service. It is almost like a race to see can they beat a time set by a previous Crew member on the flight out!!"
Cons: "We departed an hour late. The crew was very unprofessional. The landing wasn't good. Kept the light on."
Pros: "The efficiency of the crew"
Cons: "The flight was almost an hour late"
Pros: "The price is great. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Delayed with no explanation. Chaotic boarding. Super cramped seats."
Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"
Pros: "Really enjoyed my flight to London & back to Dublin with my Nieces"
Cons: "Would have loved it if there were some Irish stewards or stewardesses on board as it would have been easier to understand their accents and they tend to warmer & friendlier in their dealings with passengers"
Pros: "Quick trip from London to Dublin. Clean, new aircraft. Safe flight from start to finish."
Cons: "No complimentary water!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"
Pros: "No frills cheep short flight. Good enough"
Cons: "The comfort"
Cons: "No one knew where the boarding gate was."
Cons: "slow, disorganized check in. Boarding is hideous, I'd rather wait in a DMV line. Airline run as if consumer, and luggage, are to be avoided. I cannot understand why Anyone would fly them routinely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no on was told"
Cons: "Did not know there was a 45 euro check in fee per person...never was advertised!"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Tried to charge us for everything, including 15 pounds for printing a boarding pass. WiFi was only free for an hour at the airport, flight was delayed by two hours, plane lacked AC and was super cramped and hot. Boarding was also a mess."
Cons: "The crew said there would not be drinks because of anticipated turbulence for the entire flight. There was NO turbulence."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and took forever"
Pros: "We had been scared by other reviews, but this was not as bad as we'd read. There is no entertainment onboard, no food except for sale, and some luggage restrictions you need to take note of before you check in. Otherwise, quick smooth flight, friendly staff, luggage arrived, so overall fine experience."
Cons: "All the last minute fees are more than the ticket price"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "If you are flying without luggage or carry-on, Ryan Air might be fore you."
Cons: "The airline charges a ridiculous amount for EVERYTHING! We bought our tickets and realized almost immediately that bags were not included. We tried to upgrade our ticket type to be inclusive of a bag, but took two hours to navigate their automated "customer service". Finally got through to a live person (which they charge for), they will allow you to upgrade the ticket if you bought through KAYAK. You have to purchase your bags separately, and 1 bag was significantly more than what our ticket costs. I contacted KAYAK roughly 5 hours after the original purchase, and they could do nothing because Ryan Air is a low cost carrier. It was cheaper buy Aer Lingus seats inclusive of luggage than to add luggage on Ryan Air. I will never fly Ryan Air again, and caution anyone trying to buy Ryan Air through KAYAK"
Pros: "We were unable to check bags in advance. Staff handled at bag drop."
Pros: "Love the crews of Ryan Air!"
Cons: "I wish that there was at least water for free."
Cons: "All of it. Plane was filthy. Service at Gatwick was TERRIBLE for everything about Ryanair. Surprised you'd even be ballsy enough to ask for feedback."
