Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the boarding process was relatively smooth."
Cons: "The A/C made the cabin so cold that I am still shivering nearly two hours after landing. The cabin was cramped and uncomfortable, but I have experienced less comfortable seats on other budget airlines."
Pros: "the plane was really nice and smooth flight"
Cons: "seat didnt lean back and nothing to read or watch."
Pros: "This was the worst boarding process we’ve ever experienced. It wouldn’t take much effort or common sense to bring some order to it. Ridiculous!! Also, as others have said, they really get you on the baggage fees, and push you by email to check in early and charge you for it. We waited until a few days prior to check in for free, but then we were unable to sit together... We did arrive on time and the flight went very smoothly."
Cons: "Unnecessary charges,Dodgy website,Very bad reputation and seems you don’t give a toss.Your chat service does not work you spoil people ‘s joy when they use your service .It is just horrible"
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."
Pros: "Seats have plenty of legroom and flight was good."
Cons: "Boarding slow and in the rain to get on board. Attendants spoke too quickly."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "I tried to check in on line but their website had major issues. When I arrived at the airport, Ryanair hit me with a 40 Euro surcharge for not checking in on line. Worst airline I have ever experienced in my 40 years of airline travel."
Pros: "Bordeaux terminal is horrible, not enough seats. Rough landing. No ground staff at stanstead. Massive passport queues. All round horrible experience."
Pros: "I couldn’t confirm my flight because I never received an appropriate code to verify my trip. The codes I entered were ineffective. I read I could confirm it upon arrival and after bringing my receipt to the customer service desk, they claimed my flight was not confirmed and I need to pay $40 in Euros. I feel deceived and lied to."
Cons: "I didn’t like concern for customer care and placing blame on travel agency instead of taking responsibility. I had a receipt and someone accepted my money. My contract for a flight was made the moment my money was received!"
Cons: "The service overall"
Pros: "Friendly crew. And that is it. The plane was poorly constructed inside but managed to land without falling apart. I prefer not to fly Ryan again."
Cons: "They seated us apart because we wouldn’t pay extra. Seats are cheap, uncomfortable, and don’t recline. Baggage policies were ridiculous but weren’t enforced. Very little legroom. We had to walk up the stairs and down on arrival. Apparently a proper gate costs extra."
Cons: "Two hours delayed"
Cons: "Flight was late. They announced that it was time to start boarding so we left our seating area in the airport just to go stand around for a half hour. Then they scanned our passes and made us stand outside in the windy cold for another 15 minutes. They should’ve let us stay where we were until the plane was actually ready."
Pros: "Spacious seats with leg room"
Cons: "Too much talking over intercom"
Pros: "We arrived"
Pros: "Crew very polite and took excellent care of my 83 year old mother"
Pros: "Passengers and crew were nice. The basic price is ok, but many people buy "extras" like "privileged" boarding, and seats next to friends/relatives, so not so cheap overall."
Cons: "I don't understand Ryanair policy on random seat assignment. It delays boarding while passengers negotiate on swapping seats. I guess it's just a cynical ploy to extract more money, like the privileged boarding scam. In Palma, the departure board went from Delayed to Boarding without any announcements. The plane was late arriving and the crew blamed the ground staff. The ground staff were certainly slow coming to the plane at Stansted. I wonder if they are disenchanted with Ryanair too. We will actively avoid Ryanair where possible, and advise others to do so."
Pros: "Cabin baggage management"
Cons: "Hold baggage took over half an hour to arrive. Loot enough seats in gate at airport of departure"
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: "Gates announced too late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, very uncomfortable seat, excessive waiting time even after landing, cabin crew weren’t welcoming"
Cons: "All flights were cancelled no refund. Ryanair rebooked me without letting me know, and then told me at the airport they could not check me in."
Pros: "Crew: cheerful, kind Smooth flight"
Cons: "Very crowded conditions at the gate and on board"
Pros: "The most relaxed Ryanair flight I have ever been on"
Cons: "Having chosen a seat in the emergency exit row, was told that I couldn't use my jacket to cover myself while I slept; I either had to wear it or store it in the overhead locker. I understand that this row needs to be kept clear in case of emergency (as the name indeed suggests), but I don't see much difference between wearing the coat and using it to cover myself. Worse than that though was the way the stewardess communicated this to me with a cold stare. I'm waiting for the day I can write a positive review of a Ryanair flight."
Cons: "The worst of all the budget airlines"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B without any hassle. I passed out as soon as I got on the plane and there was nothing that kept me from sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit tedious and there was a lot of unnecessary standing around."
Pros: "Your personal in plain is young, nice and I like them becouse they are smailing all time."
Cons: "You can give to pasenger one drink (coffee) like preasen!?"
Pros: "I was allocated an emergency exit seat, luck of the draw. It was the only flight left going to the UK following the extreme weather in CPH and UK."
Cons: "No tables in the seat backs! Gaudy decoration and plastics that had clearly been designed to be hard to damage. It felt like a kebab shop in a rough area or the custody area in a police station."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no apology by Ryanair."
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?????"
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"
Pros: "Cheap and cheerful great service very efficient"
Cons: "Very bumpy landing at Glasgow"
Cons: "You don't take US credit cards!"
Pros: "So quick and easy"
Cons: "Shortage of seating in boarding area."
Cons: "Typical indifference at Lisbon where we were sent to the gate at expected time but there was no plane - it left 40 mins late. So we left an area with seating, toilets etc and stood for 90 mins waiting to board. They KNEW there was no plane - we saw it arrive AFTER our supposed takeoff time. They'll blame the airport info but it must be sorted. Everywhere, every time we come last. No more flying for us."
Pros: "NOTHING. I haven't had a worse airport/airline experience. I would NEVER fly this airline again. No matter the cost. HORRIBLE I felt taken advantage of and swindled. Not to mention incredibly uncomfortable."
Cons: "EVERYTHING. Ryanair is hands down the most horrendous airline I've encountered. What a joke. I can't believe they're in business."
Cons: "Delayed for boarding the aircraft"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Huge delay of 9.5 hrs No indication of issues Bought a priority boarding ticket but no queue for it Seats as uncomfortable as always"
Pros: "Crew's attention. Flight's punctuality and price."
Cons: "No entertainment on board."
Pros: "I liked that I'd be off in 2hrs"
Cons: "This airline is horrible. Unless prices are significantly lower, any other European airline is significantly better"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Wait to get in the bus that took us to the plane where there was not enough bus to accommodate everyone"
Cons: "An hour late"
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: "No frills, on time, good value for money"
Cons: "The food selection is nothing to rave about."
