Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"

Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."

Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"

Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"

Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"

Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"

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 pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Cons: "Crew was a bit loud and kept me awake during flight in one of the tail seats"

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."

Pros: "nice airline clean"
Cons: "is really nice I will flay with them they are ok"

Cons: "Best flight I have ever been on"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Never made it onto the plane due to flight departing early and my flight landed in Dublin late. So there was no experience for me on this flight"
Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart. But by time we walked out we all missed our flight and had to rebook. I’m sure the flight to Madrid could’ve waited for the 15 of us. But they didn’t."

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."

Pros: "The crew was charming and very attentive to passengers."
Cons: "Could have announced that there was a cost for ginger ale etc. before passengers placed request. Frankly overall it was excellent service."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "No food no entertainment"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Crew bare minimum service entertainment not functioning properly check in difficult flight operated by aer lingus"

Pros: "We were at front"
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding line held in confined area on stairs before boarding"

Pros: "Could not get seat assignments online when checking in."

Pros: "The pretzels."
Cons: "The customer service from Aer Lingus is the worst ever. This is our honeymoon and it got ruined. The flight was 3 hrs delayed, and they started rerouting people that had connection flights to London, we had a connection and randomly Wendy the service agent decide to not reroute us because we had plenty of time, of course we didn’t make the flight, we have been hostages of Aer Lingus for the last 21 hrs so far, but more will be added until we make it to Hamburg tomorrow at noon instead of tonight at 8."

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: "Everyrhing as wxpected for a small plane"

Pros: "Seats were larger with more leg room. Flight calm and without incident"
Cons: "No snack"

Pros: "Pleasant crew and good food/snack service almost forgotten as I stood at the baggage carousel for 40 minutes."
Cons: "Baggage claim very frustrating (40 minutes) particularly after 12 hours of airports and airplanes. Messed up our ground transportation plans for no apparent reason. Totally unexplained!"

Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"

Cons: "Not enough food served, they charged for alcohol on a transatlantic flight! Some of the crew were not the friendliest."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable on the newer plane and the in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "The airline features an upgrade yourself bid option that starts at a minimum bid. We went above this and got rejected, only to find there were still open seats. They tried to then upsell is at 4x the cost which makes the entire thing seem terribly dishonest. After calling customer service, they hung up on me. It’s clearly a scam to extract more pricing data from customers."

Cons: "I had to pay 3 euros for a cup of black tea? Seriously? The captain could have lowered the volume when speaking. It was too loud."

Pros: "Best thing was the Aer Lingus check-in in London, which advised me to switch to earlier flight knowing that delays were imminent and that if I took my regularly scheduled flight, I would probably miss my connection in Dublin to Washington DC. Kudos to them."
Cons: "The online check-in does not work well."

Cons: "Boarding process in Dublin was long"

Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour"

Cons: "No complimentary drinks of any kind."

Pros: "Passengers were spread out. Empty seat between each of us"
Cons: "I am tall and I find the rows too close to eachother"

Pros: "Check-in was quick and easy. The plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating was cramped. The video screen did not work and after rebooting the selections were poor. I would have enjoyed a current live steam news program."

Cons: "Cannot believe they charge for a Cup of tea! we took a 3+hour flight from Rome to Dublin with not even a complimentary beverage nor a small bag of pretzels. There was also no in flight entertainment. Our flight from Dublin back to Boston was a bit better, but not much. The boarding process took much too long with only one gate agent checking in people. I will say he did turn people away who were not in the rows being called in front of us, but not the woman who cut the line behind us who was 13 rows behind us."

Cons: "Out of your control but the shuttling around from gate to gate was inconvenient"

Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."

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: "They airline left our luggage in Dublin and we still do mat have it. It's been over a day. 25 other people were impacted by this error. My daughters wedding is in two days. I have no clothes. My tray table was filthy. Had to ask the flight attendant for a wet napkin to clean the tray and my hands."

Pros: "Staff quite friendly Nice plane. Had 3 seat to myself"
Cons: "Once again I had no choice of meal as my seat was at the last row"

Cons: "Custom made bike box erroneously classified oversized, but they didn't charge for it so ok"

Pros: "Orderly boarding. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "Online seat assignment was unavailable. Once onboard, it felt like flight staff were reluctant to give water and keep passengers hydrated on the Air Lingus flight from SFO to DUB. They even offered my 11 and 14-yr olds coffee and tea over water! We had to ask 3 times every time we needed water. Both Aer Lingus flights to DUB and to MAD were delayed."

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"

Pros: "Excellent overall experience on my first Aer Lingus flight. As a nervous flyer I highly recommend Aer Lingus"

Pros: "From Brussels to Dublin, we had a good flight. The air hostess was attentive enough and the cabin comfort was excellent."
Cons: "That we can't even have a cup of coffee without having to pay 3 euros. I thought that was outrageous."

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: "We were only 7 across in Economy so that was comfortable. We also got feed. no surcharges! I slept so didn't check out the entertainment."

Pros: "Punctual and on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Seats comfy"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and confusing. Not organized well, check in was AWFUL. One hour to get through with two people. Not eddiexekf to make plane on time!"

Pros: "All staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are too close together!"

Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."

Pros: "On time and very comfortable."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. I was seated quickly and the flight took off on time. No complaints."

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful. We appreciated being able to preorder better meals. Good selection of in-air movies. Sitting anywhere for almost 7 hours is no fun but it could have been much worse."
Cons: "Small seats. My tray table wouldn't stay up."

Cons: "4* star airline...hahahaha... yeah,because charging for a newspaper and for headphones is 4 star stuff!!!! Staff are unprofessional and rude sometimes"

"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."

Pros: "Ok time"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Need to reduce waiting hours at gate"

Cons: "Everything good"

Pros: "I didn’t die in a fiery crash."
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The seats. The gate was one og the last ones"

Pros: "British Airlines is a great airline company"

Cons: "Everything, basically... The flight was delayed almost an hour, boarding was uncomfortable, there was no food service on board, flight attendants were less than friendly, and takeoff was shaky and turbulent."

Cons: "Significant delay, poor AC"

Cons: "This is my first time using Ryan Air. I have a very good experience."

Pros: "cheap?"
Cons: "the fare and baggage rule become complicated."

Pros: "Airport lounge"
Cons: "The obvious boredom of cabin crew due probably to poor wages and long hours."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "1. The flight was late an hour and 5 minutes. 2. There were announcements in Arabic and substandard English. Zero Spanish. For a flight going to Madrid, Spanish is a must."

Cons: "We arrived one hour late and and everything on my arrival had to be delayed as well"

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: "Nothing to like because I felt harangued. They nickel & dime you every step. Cheap rates means immense headache. Your money is wasted."
Cons: "Poor customer service, they charge you every step of the way. Tremendous loss of time."

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: "Delayed"

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: "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: "Well to get in the plane we were waiting almost 1 hour, and now that am writting you waiting again 1 hour for the baggage . I will never again flight with this company never again"

Pros: "Managed to sleep most of the way so the journey went very quickly"

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: "Not much."
Cons: "Late departure. Staff herding us like cattle before take off. Smelly cabin."

Cons: "delayed by an hour which we only found out about when we went to the gate."

Pros: "If you like be herded around like cattle, and having no apology even when your flight is late, then you've come to the right place."
Cons: "Late flight. Family scattered around cabin in different seats. Completely unnecessary."

Cons: "I paid an upgrade of my ticket and they charged me $60+ dollars for not doing online check-in. AMAZINGLY BAD."

Cons: "Plane was dirty, boarding didn't have a good organisation, crew wasn't friendly."

Pros: "Staff approacable."
Cons: "There was no water in the toilet.Aircondition not working well.Have to travel by bus to get into the plane.Delayed flight."

Pros: "Price ...but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "scam carry on luggage policy. had Ryan employee random stopping passengers and letting or not seeing others with bigger bags through. overall not a got system at Ryan Air for carry-on. its all on luck. So good luck if you fly with these guys."

Pros: "Cheap and got to Madrid 15 mins early. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Early Sunday fligh... took 30 mins to queue from motorway to Stansted terminal. If were checking in bag there was a big queue too (I didn't need to). The slowest part was airport security, allow extra 20 minutes at least to get through. Did priority boarding so we didn't queue to board and sat together and had room for our bags (some ended up at feet or in hold)"

Cons: "I paid extra for priority boarding and, though I was one of the first 20 passengers on board, I was not allowed to put my bag in the overheard compartment. I was told to put both my purse (not a tiny one, mind you) and my carry on bag under the seat. And, because I had an isle seat, the space was smaller than average. So I had to fly cramped up. Because I'm not an EU citizen, I had to queue up as if to check in luggage to have a stamp placed on my boarding pass. Then another queue to board the plane because they don't bother to call by row or group number like most airlines. The boarding was chaotic. The seats are very uncomfortable. They don't even give you one small cup of water. You have to pay 3 euros for a bottle of water that would cost you 1 elsewhere. Finally, the landing was very hard and shook everyone about."

Pros: "It is just like riding the bus"
Cons: "They charge extra to seat passengers together. They wanted 30€ to print boarding passes when my phone was low power."

Cons: "Mientras se esperaban los buses, la tripulación gritó irrespetuosamente a los pasajeros que aguardábamos a nuestros familiares en la pista de aterrizaje dado que la capacidad de los buses que pusieron a nuestra disposición era escasa; debe comprenderse que se transportan personas, no reses (con el respeto que estas merecen)"

Pros: "I liked that my priority seat meant early and quick boarding. The crew was friendly and competent. The plane was clean. I had no checked luggage so traveling was not stressful. Overhead bins seemed roomy enough."
Cons: "Nothing is free - not even a coffee on the early morning flight. Might be that I've been spoiled with American airlines. Not crazy about having to check in and purchase seat online. It seems the seat selection - from basic economy - should be included in the ticket price. Again, maybe spoiled by American airline companies."

Pros: "They did get me there is one piece..."
Cons: "By the time you get what you need, it's cheaper to just book a "real" flight, where you don't get extra bills for every item, such as having to pay over 50+ Euros for luggage and carry-on, not to mention 15 Euros for a boarding card. I understand it makes it cheaper to print it ourselves, but I don't have access to a printer while on vacations. 5 Euros might be understandable, but 15 is abuse. Plain and Simple. My first and last RyanAir experience."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Every moment of us flying with Ryanair was a disaster as well as the part of us missing the flight even though we were at the airport. When you get to the airport you can't even change anything , all they let you do is check your bag in for a pre determined kg purchase. Who has a scale with them when right before they fly ? How are we supposed to know how many kilos our bags are after one or two weeks on a euro trip? If you want to pay at the airport , you have to pay ten euro or more per kilo and only up to 20 kilo (which is less than the standard 50 pounds ). This is in addition to your "low fare" ticket and FORTY EURO luggage price. Also, you can't even purchase at the place of leaving your bags, you have to walk to the office in the airport and pay. Also, they close the gates extremely early and don't tell you that you have thirty seconds to make your flight or you miss it altogether. The worst part is that you MUST check in online previously to coming to the airport and print out a boarding pass , all things that are impossible to do when you're traveling constantly and have no access to Internet or printer. If you didn't come prepared to the airport they can't even print it for you. It's awful. They are the devil. The workers are awful. They don't care about you and don't help you at all."

Cons: "we didn't know we had to print our tickets and they charged us a big fee to print our own boarding passes at the airport"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours"

Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket, i was not clearly informed that we HAD to check in online before arriving to the airport. This was a huge issue. I held off checking in because I wasn't sure if my bag would fit in the overhead bins as I didn't have a tape measure. So I figured, like with every other airline, my wife and I would check in at the desk and pay for the extra checked bag if necessary. Well we ended up having to pay €50 EACH to the airport administrator to get a boarding pass. I went through all the documents I received from the airline, and nothing states that we had to check-in before we arrived. They said they sent me a text message to my hotel, which was the contact number I had put when we bought the ticket. That didn't do anything to help. We will be fighting this with the airlines, discussing our bad experience, and never flying with them again."

Pros: "The tickets are very cheap. That's the only good thing I can say about them. You have to check in online prior to boarding. While this may seem easy enough, their system is easily bogged down. Interesting that the portion of their system for purchasing baggage check in works like a charm. But over half an hour later the loading for the final boarding passes took forever and never finished. Shouldn't be a problem but this airline counts on it. After a long wait with a long line and 2 attendants we finally get to the front where the woman exhorts more money in a penalty from us than the entire round trip tickets cost. Additionally this means standing in another long line full of people also being extorted while we run the risk of missing our flight, though we arrived 3 hours before. Didn't have the heart to stand the line up arguing how it was wrong as that would definitely have made someone behind us miss their flight. They very nonchalantly inform you that if you don't pay you don't board though the problem is theirs."

Cons: "They say that one carry on free but they should allow standard size which other airlines allows. So we have to buy new carry on for ryan air!! then don't call it free. It is really hassle travelling in Ryan air for inside flights when you have already came from US to Europe. you need to keep your luggage in storage or pay heft money at Ryan air... They don't even give free water! I agree The money you save on a Ryanair flight is not worth the absolute hassle they put you through, especially considering that you're liable to pay the difference in fees anyway."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "We purchased a luggage allowance of 15 kilos. As it turned out the exact same bag with the exact same contents fell within this limit coming from Madrid to Arrecife but not from Arrecife to Madrid. The person that checked our bag had absolutely no flexibility. We had to pay a fee for the 1 kilo overage. Later we purchased coffee before getting on the flight only to be informed we could not have hot beverages while boarding, something that has NEVER happened to me. The money you save on a Ryanair flight is not worth the absolute hassle they put you through, especially considering that you're liable to pay the difference in fees anyway."

Pros: "Seats don't"

Pros: "Amazing price! 50.00 USD round trip from Madrid to Mallorca"
Cons: "boarding policy...... Small cramped seats"

Cons: "Ryanair required a 45 euro penalty fee claiming I had not checked in adequately. I had attempted to on my phone after receiving an email on vacation but the online app did not take me through everything needed. It was not clear when I booked via Kayak that additional information was required prior to boarding the plane. My husband is taking another flight within Spain with Iberia and I called them upon my return to avoid a similar charge. They claimed they do not charge that type of penalty and everything can be handled at the airport. I was told by Rayanair that I had to take care of it at least two hours before flight time and I had to pay the penalty.."

Pros: "I arrived at my destination albeit somewhat late."
Cons: "Firstly, during check in Ryanair said that I had to have a printed out version of my boarding pass and therefore they would have to charge me 15 Euro to print it out. Isn't this a budget airline? How do people on tight budgets afford this sort of last moment expense? Secondly, there was nothing service-minded about one of the cabin-crew who barked at me for not immediately showing her my boarding pass while boarding the plane (pure impertinence). Thirdly, the seats don't recline so the knees of tall people are hard against the front seats which puts them in an uncomfortable rigid upright position during the flight. Lastly, the flight was late."

Pros: "As long as you are aware of a few things, flying on Ryan Air was great. You must check in a certain number of hours before your flight to aviod an additional check-in fee. I checked-in from the hotel computer the day before my flight. You should pre-pay for checked baggage and seat selection with priority boarding when you book the flight if you want those 2 items when flying on Ryan Air. If you dont want to pay for a checked bag, ensure you check the airline website to make sure your carry on bag meets the size requirements for carry on baggage. My flight was on time, they offered a selection of food and drinks for purchase during the flight. The staff was friendly. Everything was great."

Pros: "The plane arrived before"
