Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"

Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"

Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "Entertainment, cabin crew great."
Cons: "Seat layout may now be standard but is still cramped."
Pros: "Thanks to COVID, minimal service"
Cons: "A cup of tea about $7.00. Can it be better. Certainly"
Pros: "Comfortable, good food and good crew"
Cons: "Flight was late due to earlier mechanical error. These things happen but still annoying when they do. Crew didn’t seem too bothered."
Cons: "Flight was delayed once we had boarded, so we had to sit at the gate for about 2 hours, which was not the crew's fault of course, however, they could have offered drinks. Once we finally got in the air, they only offered purchasable snacks in a way that was confusing--and did not even come through the cabin with complimentary drinks. Given the circumstances, and the fact the time in our seats was extended by over two hours, there could have been some better service from the actual flight attendants. It should have been clearly stated at the beginning of the flight, and once more when we were in the air, that no complimentary drinks were going to be handed out, and if we wanted anything, we would need to purchase it. I wouldn't have minded purchasing if I had known that was my only option."
Pros: "Crew have specific instructions and we're lovely"
Cons: "Recommending people don't push the seat back as the coach class is very tight"
Pros: "Out of my four flights with Aer LIngus, this leg of my trip that both left and arrived on time. It is sad, that when landing they had to say thank you for flying another on time Aer LIngus flight. Makes me wonder how often are you not on time? My experience says 75% of the time your late."
Cons: "First off, don't try charging me 150 euros to check my bags when I already paid for it at booking. Then who charges for 2,50 for a can soda on an air plane? Lastly, I'm 6'4" and the seats were so close there was no way to sit without my knees pressed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Best flight I have ever been on"
Cons: "The airline charged for luggage at airport check in."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and narrow"
Pros: "Hostess were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat in first row and my bag half way down the plane so although I could’ve been first off I was in actual effect the very last."

Cons: "No TV on board and you had to pay for a glass of water"
Pros: "NO SECURITY CHECK FOR INBOUND FLIGHTS. What a relief!"

Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Staff did not seem engaged in customer service, did not go up and down the aisles to collect cups, paper, etc. very disappointing in tight space."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly"
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee and soda is something I would expect from a budget airline and not a major carrier"
Cons: "Paying for inflight drinks. All US airlines provide FREE complimentary drinks and snacks. Seemed in poor taste to charge for such things made the airlines appear cheap."
Pros: "The leg room was smaller some of the other airlines. The seat was so uncomfortable to sit on for the flight."
Cons: "Airplane was late 90 mins"
Pros: "Friendly and practical no complaints"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian option. Most airlines now have at least one vegetarian option. You had to ask at time of booking.Booked flight last min as Mom not well,l no time to think @ food."
Pros: "More room on the Airbus on Aer Lingus. Comfortable temperature in plane. Easy boarding."
Pros: "Space for legs unlike ryanair"
Cons: "We were told to be at the airport 3 hours in advance of our 9:35AM flight. We arrived at 6:45 to find a line of passengers at the aer lingus counter and no personnel. It was at least 1/2 before anyone arrived for work. The gate on the boarding pass printed that morning, was the furthest gate and a very long walk. When we arrived there we were told it was changed. We heard a lot of gate changes over the loud speaker, but no announcement from aer lingud. British airways was at"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful."
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to a storm at AMS. Then delayed further in AMS waiting for a gate. Not the airlines fault though. They are one of the few major European airlines that don't serve free food."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Broken seats, headphone socket not working, smell of aviation fuel in cabin and then our luggage did not arrive at our final destination."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and efficient. The flight was smooth aside from the minor turbulence."
Cons: "I sat in a seat with a broken entertainment screen and the WiFi was so slow it was unusable. The seat I sat in also would recline on its own at times. It made for a very long annoying and boring flight."

Cons: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"
Cons: "this flight was unnecessarily delayed. it was possible to have an earlier connection"
Pros: "Passengers were spread out. Empty seat between each of us"

Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight. Food was actually pretty decent, the beef stroganoff was decent. We were offered refreshments frequently and crew was friendly."
Cons: "The people behind me kept yanking on my seat back, making catching a few z's an impossibility. However, that's hardly the fault of the airline. Aircraft seemed a little old, but otherwise nothing extraordinary"
Pros: "On board staff is very nice."
Cons: "Ticket counter agent at SFO placed wrong tag on suitcase. This created lost luggage 4 four days. Boarding gate time posted on boarding pass from DUBto SFO as gate closing at 10:25 am when flight left at 12:30pm. We ran to gate to be told the gate won’t open for boarding until 11:40. While at DUB going to LHR none of the Aer Lingus staff told us we were to go to British Airways terminal until we got to counter. Why couldn’t there be advance notice?Aer Lingus is lame. This was my first & last time I fly Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Hostesses were pleasant, food was ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, on flight entertainment system did not work consistently."
Pros: "comfortable flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian options for meal, unless arranged ahead of time...which was not an option."
Pros: "everything was good as usual"
Cons: "check-in desk couldn't check me through to my connecting flight with Virgin Atlantic so I had 15mins once landed in Heathrow to get through passport security and checkin at Virgin Atlantic desk.... I'm young and fit so was able for the dash but elderly or familys would not have made the connecting flight in that time"
Cons: "Custom made bike box erroneously classified oversized, but they didn't charge for it so ok"
Pros: "Crew, speed, ease of security at Cork"
Cons: "The lady in 1C who turned her phone on as soon as we hit the British coast"
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Pros: "Speed of boarding from both the gate crew and the cabin staff. At that hour of the morning the last thing you want is hassle when boarding."
Cons: "It's a very very early morning flight."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 40 mins because Aer Lingus was unable to meet departure time and Air Traffic Control couldn't fit them into the departing flights rotation outside of their originally scheduled time. As a result, the airplane was stuck at the gate for 30 minutes. The rest we spent taxiing to what seemes the furthest end of the airport. The airplane hadn't been cleaned in a while as was evident by extremely sticky and smelly tray tables in our row."
Cons: "Aer Lingus personnel were incompetent and inefficient. Most were more interested in chatting with coworkers than actually assisting customers. Seats had not been assigned despite my previous assurance from EA customer service folks, and special meal requests for my wife and child had not been added to our booking record. Calling Aer Lingus almost always requires you to hold 30 minutes before anyone answers. Again, I suspect they are just as disinterested in helping customers as the ground personnel."
Pros: "Punctual and on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Clean plane & bathrooms"
Cons: "About 45 minute late in take off. The sound system for movie was very distorted almost not usable. I fly several times a year. My first time with Aer Lingus. This was not a good example of your profession"
Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I had to put on lots of layers of clothes and I was still cold."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. I was seated quickly and the flight took off on time. No complaints."
Cons: "I needed wheelchair assistance due to a back injury. The person that picked me up at the aircraft from London was terrific, l was taken to the terminal and told that another team member would take me to the aircraft. No one showed up until the aircraft was fully boarded, then he left me at the beginning of the ramp instead of wheeling me to the aircraft. I was very disappointed! I was so disappointed I didn’t wait for a pickup at the airport in Amsterdam. I regret it, because I’m in so much pain!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Having free snacks"
Cons: "With 2h30 hours delayed flight I missed my train and had to have a hotel Arcturus airport in Amsterdam and continue my journey only the day after."
Cons: "Honestly nothing needed improvement/ it was a really good experience!"
Pros: "The fare was OK"
Cons: "British Airways was once again late and they lost my luggage -- on a short, direct, one-hour flight, where I checked in 2 hours early. Unbelievable. They have gone from one of the best to one of the worst. No amenities, surly crew, and terrible performance. Never again."
Cons: "The seats are too small no entertainment No fast track for business class"
Pros: "Planes are well maintained"
Cons: "Rigid attitude of the staff that goes the extra mile to find ways to irritate and upset clients"
Pros: "Again, I liked that we reached our destination safely."
Cons: "Because of the almost 3 hour delay, almost all of the passengers on the flight missed their connecting flight. Including myself. I was moved to a flight four hours later Finally, the last leg of my flight was again delayed 55 minutes and I ended up on a very, very crowded flight and getting to my destination at almost 5pm instead of 9am.... missing a whole day of activities. What did I get as compensation from British Airways? A 5 pound coupon for 'light refreshment' for an 8 hour inconvenience. Brilliant :|"
Cons: "My flight was changed to a later flight without giving me a reason. I was never given the option of why this happened. As a result i missed my meeting."
Pros: "I was flying Business and I couldn’t tell any difference between Business and Economy except the covers on the headrest"
Cons: "No difference between Business and Economy"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, even coffee"
Cons: "Feels like BA has turned into Ryan Air. £65 for a checked bag, cramped seating and not even a free water."
Pros: "Not much. They got us there."
Cons: "Flight was late. London heathrow is such a pain. You have to ride a bus between terminals. You have to sit in the A terminal area waiting for your gate then hustle to your gate. The plane was old. The British crew was less than friendly. Everything on the flight costs. Couldn’t even get water for free."
Pros: "We got nothing:-(!"
Pros: "This flight is exactly what you’d expect it to be- no frills, just a cheap way to get around! Coffe is 30 pnc so come pr prepared!"
Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."
Pros: "Gatwick is very well organized, making the boarding process very smooth. The flight to Amsterdam is short - only an hour. And the crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee anymore - low cost carrier behaviour against full price fare. KLM is much better"
Cons: "Poor check in process, no complementary food or drink and 30 late arriving"
Cons: "The flight staff of my flight to Amsterdam were horrendous. I was in an aisle seat and was woken up by the drink cart hitting my leg and a hot coffee being poured a good 7 inches from my face. This was not acknowledged or apologetic. They also took drink orders by shouting. They were easily the loudest people on the plane and made the flight way less comfortable than it could have been."
Cons: "Carrier was small. Crew could have been more helpful and courteous."
Pros: "The crew are friendly and do help where possible."
Cons: "Choice of food is poor, not having a full service and having to pay for checked baggage from what was once “the world’s favourite”"
Pros: "Fsst board to front of plane."
Pros: "Both flights were on time. Funny comic relief safety film kept my attention. Friendly cabin crew member gave me a hot tea for free."
Cons: "No breakfast served in economy to my disappointment, there was no mention of that when I booked with Kayak. The seats are not too comfortable, with little legroom. The BA app did not show gate information when I needed it."
Cons: "Not impressed at lack of free food on ba flights"
Pros: "Safety, fast arrival, interactive pilot"
Cons: "No snacks no entertainment"
Pros: "Classic, reliable and trustworthy British Airways. Does what it says on the tin"
Cons: "Very full flight but still comfortable"
Pros: "Good price, got to check a bag included in my fare ( always nice when on vacation)"
Cons: "For short Hall flights: You have to pay for any drinks (even non-alcoholic) which is kind of a shock especially if your use to USA airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process. It's a bit of a free for all."
Pros: "On time, polite crew."
Pros: "Easy boarding, quick travel and smooth landing."
Cons: "Basic snacks"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour after we were boarded because of place in the takeoff schedule. We have a scheduled flight time, so that doesn't really make any sense to me."
Pros: "Flight was okay and staff where friendly"
Cons: "Delay on take off even though we was early loaded, rusty wings on the plane made you wonder if it would make it!"
Pros: "Communication regarding weather problems"
Cons: "My luggage arrived 3 days after I did. Communication between baggage delivery service and BA baggage reps terrible. BA baggage reps never told delivery service the hotel room I was at was registered under another name. BA baggage reps gave me miss information each time I spoke with them."
Pros: "Good flight, bit bumpy due to weather."
Cons: "4-hour delay for a 40minute flight"
Pros: "There is nothing to like. I paid for three return tickets from Amsterdam to London. My family and I were at airport and couldn't get on the flight. Even return trip wasn't honored. I made a mistake by choosing this carrier and would never do this or even recommend British Airline to anyone. . What disaster."
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "It took over an hour after clearing customs for my bag to arrive. Overall, I was in the airport 1.5 hrs before it arrived."
Cons: "Two big devaluations to oneworld emeralds: 1) boarding is totally unregulated: they call oneworld emeralds first but everyone just comes stampeding through and they don't check, 2) no free beverages in economy - even for Oneworld emeralds - the highest tier - despite just having had champagne in the first class lounge for being emerald. How does this make sense?"
Pros: "Great it was a short flight."
Cons: "Plane had no entertainment"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The seats on this little plane were more comfortable than the huge double decker plane."
Pros: "It went by quickly"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the captain did his best to make up for a delay"
Cons: "There was a bit of stress during boarding with people unable to find luggage space - and at least one verbal argument between passengers"
Cons: "They loaded us on the plane only to inform us that we'd be in que for an hour+... not acceptable. They should have delayed loading."
Pros: "smiles and kindness efficiency"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Rude, entitled and lazy employees. Zero recognition of Emerald status. Forced me to check my bag which fit the onboard limits and flew on 3 flights, incl one on BA - on this very same itinerary."
Cons: "Cancelled with no opportunity to rebook. I missed my entire trip!"
Pros: "The crew was great and everything about the whole experience was wonderful."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew were very professional."
Cons: "Need to reduce waiting hours at gate"
Pros: "Not super comfortable"
Cons: "Snacks/Drinks for free"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Chose priority boarding, waste of time so did everyone else. Long queues to board."
Pros: "They actually flew into the main airport"
Cons: "The whole priority thing is a total joke and just another way to f*** the passengers over why don’t they just give us a price without all this bloody nonsense of baggage"
Pros: "Crew were good considering the difficult situation they found themselves in"
Cons: "Once everyone had boarded we were told we would be on the tarmac for 2 hours before we leave. While we sat there we were told they could not serve us anything while on the ground...even water! When we finally were airborne the crew were overwhelmed with customer orders and not all people got served"
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: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Plane left an hour after scheduled time. Amenities were mediocre but that's what you expect with Ryanair. Didn't even get water."
Pros: "I was pleased with the RyanAir staff at the Dublin airport and on the flight. Easy booking process and many options to help make traveling a bit easier"
Cons: "I have an American passport and did not realize I needed to get a visa stamp before boarding the plane. While I do realize now that it is mentioned on my boarding pass, there was no other mention of it along the way from arriving at the airport, checking my bag (I used self check), going throigh security, or anywhere else in the RyanAir terminal. Perhaps this could be made more clear for travelers who have never experienced this before."
Cons: "Rude gate agent and they played the blame game as to why they were late!"
Pros: "Got home."
Cons: "They managed to mangle the queuing in the terminal, getting everybody on theit feet and I need the queue 20 minutes before boarding started and then have us standing in a queue on the stairs for ten minutes. The flight was delayed an hour or so, and pass Nebraska then asked to take their seats quickly as if they had caused the delay. The crew were tired but polite. Standard Ryanair fight, really, run for the airline’s convenience rather than the passengers’ comfort."
Cons: "We spent a lot of time standing in lines."
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "To be charged $20 at the ticket counter for a printed boarding pass is offensive. Despite having already checked in online, Ryannair apparently thinks I should have spent my holiday hunting down a print shop as not to incur their "get a printed boarding pass from an unpleasant ticket counter employee" fee. No boarding pass kiosks and unclear why they would not provide a digital one upon online check-in. Or rather it became clear as I handed over my debit card. Seats are intentionally designated apart from your travel companions so you'll pay more to have them switched to sit next your friend. Cabin is extra cramped. Ryannair is all-around terrible by budget airline standards."
Cons: "When check in took place we were kept in a dark,cold,wet & windy covered area for about 10/15 minutes before being allowed to board the plane. This is really unacceptable in this day & age."
Cons: "The fee to check in at the airport was absurd. There is no reason that they should not have been able to accommodate me when I was unable to check in online. The luggage is incredibly expensive as well."
Cons: "Delayed take off 20 minutes late from Cork, now at STN, we stuck on the plane because the ladder and stairs to get off the plane are not ready?????? Do we blame Ryanair???? Second time I have had this excuse while flying with them!!!! Maybe this is what you get when you fly with an airline who cut corners and costs?????"
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."
Pros: "Boarding was quick from front and back. Food service aslo went both directions, quick and efficient."
Cons: "all the extra charges... late take off not being able to get the seat desired general nervousness due to low level of confidence in the company"
Cons: "Arrival is horrific"
Pros: "Nothing even though the advertised price was cheap by the time we added on all the other charges we could have flown with a more reputable airlines and it was not a deal by no means."
Cons: "Everything. Abrupt staff at check in and on board staff also had attitude.Seats where dirty .We stood outside to wait to board when the plane was not even there and lucky it was not raining as we would all have being soaked. I don't know why we had to stand outside in the cold when the plane was not ready."
Pros: "Deboarding and never having to fly Ryanair again."
Cons: "Our inbound flight was cancelled. The outbound check-in agents we're rude. Forced to print our tix before arrival we "failed to read the fine print" that we were supposed to undergo a "visa check" before the gate. Whatever the heck that's about. First time requirement and totally obtuse. Gate agents did their best to humiliate. No inflight free services. Just be glad you aren't made to pay to pee (yet)."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ruined my travel plans and made me miss another flight, bus ride, and also got charged for a hostel I never made it to. Thanks Ryan air!!"
Pros: "We arrived about 20min earlier than expected. Our bags were checked in for free and we got them on time and without issues at the baggage belt on arrival. Snacks and drinks are not free but available for purchase. There isn't any kind of on-board entertainment. We sat in the last row and we have plenty of leg room - surprisingly."
Cons: "No drinks for free. It would be nice to get at least a glass of water. But it is understandable that low budget- short flights are not offering such services anymore."
Pros: "The staff were okay."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "Extra baggage cost"
Cons: "An obnoxious hen party disrupted our enjoyment of the flight. Cabin crew didn't try to control them"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Haven't received a response to my late flight from London to Dublin from Ryan Air- flight Fr143"
Pros: "They didn't make me check my bag on the first flight but did on the second. It cost me 50 Euro, which is more than I paid for the flight. Overall, good airline if you pack light."
Pros: "Meeting my seat mate!"
Cons: "Drunken rowdies from Ireland going to Amsterdam took over the cabin with obnoxious, vulgar behavior...fueled by the cabin staff selling the drunken crowd even more alcohol! One poor passenger had a seizure on the way to the runway and was subjected to their reticule! They should have been removed!"
Pros: "Good price - the plane was clean and appeared well maintained."
Cons: "The airlines does nickle and dime you on other fees. I find it annoying that you need to print your boarding pass at home (or incur a fee) and still stand in line at the desk to check your boarding pass. We found it worth the extra fee for priority boarding. It improves the experience."
Cons: "U have to print boarding pass 2 hours before I did t See this written anywhere . Also they close the gate 30 minutes before and it takes 30 minotes to get to the gate Very difficult process so fate was closed and I had to pay 60 eu for luggage which was never clear anywhere and I had to check-in 3 hours before you have to check in before u can print the boarding pass so I was looking for a boarding pass but could t get it since I didn't know I had to check In???????? Mo5hi g explained anywhere!"
Pros: "Quick flight, no hassle."
Cons: "Delayed without explanation, boarded the plane then sat for 40 minutes waiting to take off."
Pros: "The flight was okay."
Cons: "One of the attendants was very rude to my group leaving Ireland. We had previously checked in to our flight but didn't have our boarding passes printed. Instead giving us direction, she sent us away to figure out how to get our boarding passes in an airport we had been in."
Pros: "The crew on the actual flight was nice. Also, a kind and patient Ryanair employee helped us with check-in after our awful experience with their customer service desk."
Cons: "The customer service representative at the Dublin airport for Ryanair was extremely rude and was annoyed from the moment we stepped up to the desk. Yes, Ryanair is a budget airline but it costs $0 to be nice and helpful especially if you are working in customer service."
Pros: "They were efficient and timely"
Cons: "We asked two Ryanair employees when we arrived at the import if our bags would b considered carry-on and then we were forced to pay $50 each at the gate to check our bags, making this economy flight much more expensive. We saw a number of people with bags as large as ours carry on and even the baggage attendants outside the plane were surprised. Wong fly Ryanair again due to one stubborn employee at the gate"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice, and the flight was uneventful. Will fly again and learned lesson about luggage fees."
Cons: "Had two bags to check. Paid for two bags in advance. Didn't know there was a total weight allowance across two bags. First bag ate up most of total weight allowance which forced me to pay for the overage on the second bag of €70. I thought I could bump up my second bag to the higher weight class when checking in instead of having to pay the overage charge that was three times as much. Found out during boarding they were checking bags for free...should have done carry on and avoided the extra costs."
Pros: "I needed to be in London early as I had a connecting flight and Ryanair got me there on time"
Cons: "Standsted security not opening the door to the terminal when we arrived by bus from the plane."
Pros: "They knew that there world be a 2 hour weather delay but boarded is on the plane and made us wait 2 hours so we wouldn't have the chance to reschedule our cancel."
Cons: "over head was so small could not get bag in that was perfectly fine on other flights. And it is the only airline that we had to go to verify passport . All other did it while we were in line."
Pros: "Extremely efficient self service bag drop. Not as harsh as last time I flew with them many years ago. Was reluctant to fly them again but decided to give them another try since price was much better than others. Was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "Seats do not recline."
Cons: "I tried to check in on line but because of their website was unable to. So we were charged 45 euro each for a boarding pass. That is unacceptable. I would not recommend this airline."
Cons: "I flew from Cork Ireland to PMI and unfortunately a large group of young adults boarded as well. They were drunk, obnoxious, adding around a bottle of alcohol singing loud songs over the announcements. The crew did not control them properly and even had to call the police upon landing. Poorly handled situation that made the rest of the passengers suffer through the appalling behavior."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours early to make sure I had plenty of time to find my way around. I found out 45 minutes before my flight that it was delayed 5 hours. They apologized and offered us a $5 voucher for food/ non alcoholic beverage. $5 is like maybe 35% off a meal without a beverage. I wouldn't have even eaten there had it not been for the delay, so I ended up spending more money there to get some dinner. 7 hours in a small airport without things todo makes for a very long day. It also would have been nice if the airport had charging stations for your phone and electronic devices."
Cons: "Over 1 hour delay! Really terrible"
Pros: "Lower prices are obviously attractive"
Cons: "They had to replace something mechanical, which made us 2 hours late. It also engenders a lack of trust that the lower priced airline isn't scrimping too much."
