We were late boarding, late taking off, micromanaged by the crew like we’re stupid, the food was truly god awful atrocious... and there were like 20 movies to choose from for a 7 hour flight.

Pros: "Great flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t connect to entertainment didnt"

Cons: "75 euros per bag on an international flight is robbery. I was also on my honeymoon, which I know shouldn't guarantee anything, but wow did it leave a bad impression, particularly when I hear stories of free upgrades all the time and I couldn't even get a free bag."

Pros: "You can charge your devices (only in one plains from London to Portugal)"
Cons: "Cabin crew were far from welcoming when dealing with the African passengers (including me though I'm Spanish) the food was a disgrace On a 5 hour flight to Accra there was no entrainment, the chairs were incredibly uncomfortable and you could not even charge your devices... The food arrive way too early. I believe the airline has put less of an effort on these planes due to the nature of the passengers... I have been traveling for 20 years and I never felt so disappointed by an airline... I will not use this airline ever again"

Cons: "Flight was three hours late."

Pros: "Flight was only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Food and drink (esp. non-alcoholic) is terrible. Not offering a vegetarian option - even on short haul - is ridiculous in the 21st century."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pls make sure you let people know about luggage restrictions at time of purchase. Not at check in. Useless people!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They gave someone else seats I had reserved for 6 months and that I had paid extra for. I will take that up with the company forewidth"

Pros: "Clean and simple aircraft. Limited but professional service. Uncomplicated boarding procedures."
Cons: "Boarding from bus at a main airport in winter. It looks cheap flyght .But we'll organized."

Cons: "Nothing meal was fine , flight on time, good experience."

Pros: "The actual flying of the plane, take off and landing was really smooth! Well done to the flight crew! We were pleasantly surprised to be served 2 full tasty meals on our long flights as well."
Cons: "Tv/movie options were not as good compared to our previous flight to Lisbon. We used the economy option which required us to pay for a seat upgrade in order to be able to hear each other. I will use this airline again if I have to but it isn’t my first choice."

Pros: "There wasn't anything special to like compares to other good airlines. I would say crews attitudes and foods were alright."
Cons: "Doesn't have a USB cable to charge the phone and there were no perfume or toothbrush for the long journey. Also no apple juice."

Pros: "First class accommodation was great! We had about a 3-hour flight and would have appreciated a blanket, pillow and a headset."
Cons: "I didn't like that first class was checked in first at the counter. But everyone rode on the same bus and disembarked at the same time so first class didn't really board the plane first. Some of the TAP counter employees were very unhelpful & actually dismissive. We had gate 19 and there was no sign of activity when it was time to board. When asked some counter employees, they couldn't care less. You should post something at the gate assigned about a gate change or delay. A lot of passengers were confused and uninformed."

Cons: "Outdated movies"

Pros: "Cabinstaff were friendly and professional"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made this flight"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was only for meat eaters and not very Good. Would have liked a vegetarian option."

Cons: "I booked these tickets for my friends Jamal Wiggins and Anthony Maxwell and they are still Lisbon. They are still in Lisbon! Their flight, 1306, had been delayed for almost 6 hours. The gate keeps changing and they've been getting ther run around all day. No food vouchers. This is horrendous. I am here at Prague airport. We only have a few days here and now one day is gone. They should be reimbursed! We are paying 400 euros for hotel rooms that aren't even being used because of this delay."

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew very friendly, check in process easy"
Cons: "Seats are very unconfortable and the space limited. baggage policy isn't very clear; I had to pay 20 extra euros for a checked bag"

Cons: "Seats were hard as a rock"

Pros: "Efficient friendly generous service To a little used, user friendly airport (Free alcohol, i.e., wines; no spirits) I ordered a Muslim meal: delicious"
Cons: "We had trouble with the A/C leaving; until we were airborne, it was hot. I suspect that this is an unusual problem. In general, I find small international carriers better than the large ones; my favorite so far in Air Austria"

Pros: "Relatively comfortable business class. Food was good. Entertainment system easy to use."
Cons: "They totally screwed up boarding. We waited for about 20-30 minutes in line because they had not worked out the boarding logistics properly. Seat design does not permit an independent adjustment of the foot rest. Crew seemed a little indifferent to our presence; very few smiles."

Pros: "Complimentary beverages and snacks. Understandable English from the crew about the flight information"

Pros: "My wife needs help getting around but they placed us in the last row. No leg room again either. The crew was understanding and helpful."

Pros: "Friendly service, with the exception of having to request a drink repeatedly (i finally gave up, got up and went to the back of the plane myself for water). Despite the tight connection times, made each flight and luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The seats on the transatlantic flight were small and cramped. Lucky to have had an open seat next to me on the return. No entertainment on Lisbon/ Milan flights."

Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad, the flight attendant was unfriendly, which is unlike any Portuguese we have met in our trip, maybe she was just having a bad day."

Pros: "Food and attention"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I know the flight between Lisbon and Amsterdam is only 3 hours, but it could have been better. First, boarding was a mess because no one could hear announcements being made. Once on the plane, things only got worse. I'm a small person- only 5'4" and even I had no leg room! This was made worse when the seat in front reclined- very claustrophobic. There were also zero entertainment options."
Cons: "It was nice that they served light snacks even though it was a short flight."

Pros: "The attention was great, cordial and polite, was right on time, the movies current and good, I enjoyed the food too.i will fly TAP again for sure."

Pros: "Punctual, good crew"
Cons: "No free entertainment in an international flight, food no good for vegetarian meals"

Cons: "The crew might be greeting passengers onboarding."

Cons: "Nothing in time"

Cons: "At least a complimentary glass of water or juice in Economy."

Pros: "Arrival in time"
Cons: "Compartment for hand luggage was full, no space"

Pros: "Big space to front seat"
Cons: "offer drinking water"

Cons: "No information was avSo pick a couple up listen to this device again also right now dictation right now"

Cons: "Flying with the same company from Vilnius, only on Riga they decided to weight the cabin bags. I understand the police, the limit weight, but they should apply it from the first flight, not just half way"

Pros: "The airplane was brand new. The crew was very friendly"

Cons: "no food or water in economy - for a 5 hour flight."

Pros: "They just wanted more money. Charged us one small carry-on bag over 60 Euro! Ridiculous. Horrible airline, will never fly with airBaltic."
Cons: "They should have told us that one person can only bring one bag. we just flew with Ryanair and Easyjet, which allow one carryne and one bag. Again, will never fly with such horrible airBaltic, never!!!"

Pros: "All fine"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Trips"

Pros: "Tallin airport is beautiful"
Cons: "Lost luggage and indifferent assistance."

Pros: "Instructions for connected flights at airpotr were clear"
Cons: "Connection time 10 minutes instead of planned 30"

Cons: "When I got to the check-in desk, I was told to get out of line and check in online. It wasn't a big deal, but it would have been good to know that it was necessary to do this so I didn't wait in line for a long time."

Cons: "There was a sceen right before my eyes telling me how much time of the flight was left. Even if I wanted to be unaware of the information I could not because as I mensioned it was right before my eyes. I was aware of almost every minute of this flight....found it hard to let go and just let time pass"

Pros: "the flight started at time. the attendant were fine. but i consider this flight not as a cheap flight. therefore, it should be possible, so early in the morning to offer a coffee at least."
Cons: "the experience on board should be improved, particularly when the flight is not different from regular airlines in terms of cost"

Pros: "Newer plane."
Cons: "The plane we were supposed to be on from Riga to Helisinki had mechanical problems so they switched our plane. We had an hour delay do to that. Then when we got to Helsinki our luggage never made it."

Cons: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit). We explained at the checkpoint that we had a few minutes, but they controlled us several times until we had to throw several liquid items. In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."

Cons: "The passage through Riga airport was terrifying. We arrived from St. Petersburg 6.35 and we left 7.20 to Paris (passengers in transit).

In St. Petersburg they had already controlled us, without problems. In short: a sad experience in Riga, which does not speak well of this country: Latvia."

Pros: "Good service, good connection in Riga! Perfectly on time!"

Pros: "Pleasant crew, efficient boarding, flight was on time"
Cons: "No in-flight service"

Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "I wasn’t asked to prepay luggage & it cost me double. That makes me very annoyed."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Please give out water for free"

Pros: "The plane was very clean and new. The crew who worked this flight were most friendly, professional and quite articulate in three languages including the captain. I highly recommend them."

Pros: "Did not have food, so not able to rate that. Comfortable for sure! Plane ain't that big and one side had only 2 seats next to each other."

Pros: "Easy for my friend and I"

Cons: "They delayed our flight from Gatwick to Riga with no information given to passengers. Many of us had a connecting flight with Air Baltic from Riga to Helsinki- which we asked if they will wait for us, the crew member said because the flight was also with Air Baltic, they will wait for us. We got there 10 minutes before take off, and the gate has already closed. Furthermore, we got to the Air Baltic counter, we were given 5Euro meal vouchers even though we will be staying at the Riga airport for 9 hours. Also they gave us terrible customer service attitude, which we definitely do not deserve after being delayed, and causing so much trouble on their behalf. Definitely do not recommend flying with Air Baltic again. I've never been this angry with any air line."

Cons: "bag measure frames in Riga airport used for aB are smaller than in most airports, as a results we were asked to check some bags in at the last moment. we have had connecting flight through Riga with two hand bags. lets call them big and small. judge by yourself: flight, aircraft, small, big ->Riga CS3, on board, on board Riga-> DHC 8-400, on board, check in ->Riga DHC 8-400, on board, on board Riga-> CS3, check in, check in as you see, the same bags on the same aircraft were allowed or disallowed by the same company based on weather one flies to Riga or from it. i believe there is absolutely no purpose for doing last second interruptions of such kind"

Cons: "An extra fee is charged if you don't check-in online."

Cons: "We had to pay for 3 pieces of luggage, including my hand luggage. It came to about $150 dollars. When i booked the flight, it did not indicate anything about this extra change so be ware of this. The flight itself was quite inexpensive."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, so I did not make to the my connection flight with different carrier. I had to reschedule the flight and stay in the hotel overnight. AirBaltic refused to compensate for my looses due to thair fault, castomer service is very poor, they took refusal position right away. Air Baltic planes are very old and no air conditioning, avoid air Baltic."

Cons: "In Stockholm they denied my boarding to Riga and Moscow as they told me that I need Shengen visa. When I was buying ticket I wasn't informed that I need to have Visa. I always travel through Europe with layovers and never have this issue before. I had to buy another ticket straight to Moscow and wait in the airport for 8 hours. I ask to reimburse me half of the price of this ticket."

Pros: "Everything was very smooth and the crew was very attentive."

Pros: "Great airline with good airplanes and friendly staff. I was able to board the plane using my iPhone (e-ticket) from Copenhagen to Riga to Moscow."

Pros: "They did provide a 6 euro food voucher once it was clear the flight was going to be over 2 hours late. The flight and land crew did their best to keep everyone calm under bad circumstances."
Cons: "Flight was just under 3 hours late (long enough to kill most of the day, but just under what is needed to pay compensation). First they said it was problems in Amsterdam, then problems with the plane, then traffic in Amsterdam. It was hard to tell what was true and what was avoiding penalties (it is possible that equipment issues caused them to lose their spot, and get caught in traffic delays). I hate that they charge 2.5 euros for water on the flight. Their carryon rules only allow us to take the smallest of bags (smaller than other airlines) but when I got on the plane, lots of people had medium sized carryons."

Pros: "I was surprised by the professionalism of air Baltic employees. They dressed well."

Pros: "It was very easy to print boarding pass."
Cons: "The scanners did not accept my boarding pass. 40% of the passengers had to have boarding passes reprinted. It was chaotic."

Pros: "It's very inexpensive, especially if you fly with only with a carry-on luggage. On-board service has always been excellent."
Cons: "The check-in process is horrible, regardless of the airport you are flying from. It's just the trademark of Air Baltic. I learned my lesson and pay extra to use the priority check in line, as well as boarding. Otherwise you end up staying in a VERY long line. This time I was bumped from the seat that I picked when booking my flight, which was still assigned to me when I checked in online. No explanation or heads-up, I was just handed a paper boarding pass when I checked my bag, and only after I was past security line I realized that I was bumped from row 4 to row 10. I was able to get a seat in row 4 again at the gate, but not the same seat. Also, there was no priority boarding, even though I paid for it. Given this experience I will only fly this airline if I can get away with a carry on, thus avoiding the check in desk altogether."

Cons: "After barely making too tight a connection, all food and beverage needed Euros or European credit card. My Visa wouldn't work. Finally after I broke down (blood sugar way too high) the stewardess gave me a glass of water. Never will I use the money grubbing airline again"

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Cons: "Riga to vilnius delayed 2 hours"

Cons: "Uncomfortable, cramped."

Pros: "Boarding, comfort"
Cons: "SAS didn't let me check in my flight to final distinction, so I had a problem."

Pros: "Very efficient"

Pros: "Free wifi was great!"

Cons: "Delay, rude service, ran out of food for vegetarians"

Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "If the crew could have made sure at boarding that passengers uses the right doors to enter the aircraft , that could have avoided passengers walking over each other"

Pros: "Smooth ride. Wide variety of snack options. Convenient charger for my electronics."
Cons: "Wish I knew I’m advance the importance of choosing a non-middle seat. The middle seat for 9+ hours was pretty miserable."

Pros: "Really pleased they fly to Austin,Texas direct from London. They give a very cost effective alternative to BA. We upgraded to Premium for a reasonable fee. We liked the masses of leg room but on a night flight it is impossible for the middle/window passenger to escape as all seats are back with footrests extended. The cabin crew were very good. The plane was new and very clean. Roast beef salad for breakfast was tasty if unusual."
Cons: "Low cost premium is rare, and some cost cutting is understandable. That said....Premium seats weren’t that comfortable. I’m not too tall (6 feet) but they didn’t support my back well. There was no music entertainment so ensure you bring your own. There is plenty of power. The film selection is the same in both directions and pretty limited. Not a problem if you are sleeping though. Note: When upgraded you don’t seem to get all your prepaid extras refunded and we couldn’t choose our seats in Premium. There is no business lounge in Austin. (There was in Gatwick). The Norwegian app never linked to my reservation automatically. Some synchronisation work required there. Unlike other premium flights the drinks service was pretty limited. I didn’t enjoy eating out of a cardboard box, but the food was tasty."

Cons: "Giving out water should be free!"

Cons: "I had to pay for seating"

Cons: "The delay was too much and it affected me badly"

Cons: "DY 7016 was scheduled to leave JFK on January 7th at 10 PM. We took off at 4 AM. This is unacceptable."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Staff were not friendly. I specifically heard one attendant who had swapped out a meal for a passenger say out loud "she didn't like her vegan meal so she wanted another one" in front of the passenger. I found that rude and accusing. I know I did not pay for food and I expected that. However, I think that's a bit austere for a 10 hour flight. Not even water offered for non-paying passengers. I don't know how you expect people to be healthy and ok on such a long flight without water.. Will not be flying Norwegian again."

Pros: "Quick flight. Fast boarding Good choice of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was freezing With three people sitting together, it is definitely cramped. Staff aren’t as friendly."

Pros: "The flight was fast"
Cons: "Horrible people doing the check-in for the flight Very stricted with weight so they can charge you horribly high prices for their benefit Very arrogant Delayed flights Not offered even water if you hadn’t booked meals Very expensive snack bar prices and can only pay by card Worst airline ever with the most abusive and arrogant staff"

Pros: "The film selection was good."
Cons: "Delays with very little information. Cramped plane. Unprofessional staff. No free refreshments. Bad website and faulty app. A budget airline to be avoided."

Cons: "took 1 hr to get bags"

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Cheapness!"

Cons: "Wheelchair was not boardedit first and was not brought to the gate on landing. We were not assigned seats near front until I complained North hot food available on flight Seats cramped"

Pros: "Great leg room considering it's a short flight."
Cons: "Rude staff."

Pros: "No entertainment provided"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Economy seat, no earphones, terrible food. This was a business class ticket."

Cons: "Last minute switch to a different substandard carrier (hi fly) and different aircraft is standard operating procedure. A huge waste of money specially if you are paying extra for business class."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food, seat, entertainment"

Cons: "First time with this airline, so didn't know what to expect. All food, including water, must be purchased. No big deal if prepared for it, but different compared to other airlines that customarily provide non-alcoholic drinks or at least cups of water on long-haul flights."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy"
Cons: "For a premium business ticket, the service, comfort, and food is extremely poor."

Pros: "All in all a great flight both there and back. I'd recommend this airline without hesitation. I didn't have a single issue with them. Great plane with all the new gadgets etc, love that the windows could be dimmed for sleep/watching movies. Lots of leg room, bonus for me was that both flights I had nobody next to me so I was also able to lie down! Shopping system worked great, every time I ordered I received my food/drink within minutes. Boarding was carried out in number order and worked well as they give themselves loads of time. There was no backlog of passengers waiting for that one person (there is always one!) to arrange their overhead space perfectly!! Would definitely fly with them again."

Pros: "The time slot is very inconvenient but otherwise pretty ok"
Cons: "NO FOOD. I didn't know I had to pre order food and ALL the snacks had run out! They really need to have a reserve."

Pros: "Overall good service with timely information."
Cons: "50 minutes delay. The message from Kayak update stated terminal B and I needed to go all the way to Terminal A with luggage. A bit of exercise!"

Pros: "Quick flight on which I was able to sleep most of the way and wake up at 6am in uk. Good entertainment offering that I didn't use. No food but worked well with my sleeping."
Cons: "Lack if food might not suit all and should be made mire obvious. I nearly missed it but once aware covered it very successfully."

Pros: "I LOVED the entire journey and embrace the pay as you go model for economical long haul travel!"

Pros: "The cabin crew were personable and professional. The seats were comfortable and there was a good amount of leg room."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment was not working. Within 40 minutes of take off, hot snacks were no longer available. Poor distribution of seats - many people (not travelling together) were seated 3 in a row yet several people had 3 seats to themselves. Captain did not address the one hour delay with an apology or an explanation."

Pros: "Very pleasant folk on-board. Comfortable new plane"
Cons: "Staff didn't manage boarding well with the result that people were standing for long periods waiting needlessly in a queue. The entertainment system broke down which on a 7 hour flight is not a trivial loss. The flight was one hour delayed in departing, although it did make up some of that time over the Atlantic."

Pros: "Entertainment tv"
Cons: "There was a beligerantly drunk man next to me. He was agressive and rude."

Cons: "I was running late for my flight home to Dublin I had 40 minutes until the flight was due to take off. The guy on check in was extremely rude and sent me off in an awful panic to my gate. It was an emotional parting with my partner as I won't see him again for a few months and this very rude employee didn't help at all This was my second flight with Norwegian in the space of a few weeks and I could very well be a regular flyer as my partner is in Sweden for the foreseeable future. This guy gave an awful representation of your airline. People get delayed these things happen he wasnt one bit nice about it and I was very unhappy how I was treated"

Cons: "The fact that my husband and I were one of the first people to check in, four hours ahead of boarding, yet we were not even asked or told that we were being allotted seats in the row closest to the toilet- had we been told that at the time of checking in by the customer rep, we would have had the chance to request for a seat change as both of us were unable to sleep at all."

Cons: "In spite of request for Vegetarian food, there was no food available. While checking in, I did ask the officer about the food & was told YES. The same issue occurred on Return. I request for some refund a's a Compensation & it should be Debited to the contractor for food as a Penalty."

Pros: "I liked being able to watch free movies."
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to pay for drinks. Usually beverages on an airplane are free to customers."

Cons: "I was charged $65 for a carry on that they wouldn't allow me to carry and made me check the bag ..."

Cons: "6 hour delay and the worst customer service"

Pros: "One of the best planes I have traveled in to go to Europe. I will definitely be using them again"
Cons: "Nothing much, the boarding was a bit chaotic at first but that was because all the passangers decided to stand by the entrance to the line even when it wasn't their time to board. The seat I was in had some water leaking on it at first from the air conditioner, I assume condensation but it stopped once we really got up in the air."

Pros: "Everything was just simply perfect. From leaving on time and arriving an hour earlier to London. Food was delicious and taking off n landing just speculation. Amazing airline, will def fly with them Again."

Pros: "Did not keep us informed of the delay and I was not offered anything to drink."

Cons: "Couldn't get boarding passes in advance and no online check in. Luckily I was able to reserve a seat in advance."

Pros: "Every thing"

Cons: "Checking in had a long line"

Pros: "Service unhappy to be there. Crazy delays."

Pros: "I have never heard of this airline and was pleasantly surprised at their professional and kind service. Hope I can travel with them again."
Cons: "As above and I was pleasantly surprised also by the cartoons on the drop down screens that were good for all ages."

Pros: "I have never before on a Western airline with worse staff service, and I travel a lot. Your staff, from check-in to pilot, were consistently the most surly, poorly-prepared and incommunicative that I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Rude staff - boarding chaos - horrible food - lack of onboard water"

Pros: "The 787 dreamliner is a great aircraft, but being stuck with a middle seat still stinks."

Pros: "Flight changed twice I had to bookman other flight to London and missed my connection to dublin"
Cons: "No flight"

Cons: "Delayed. Confusion over gates."

Cons: "Delayed."

Pros: "The ground crew was very helpful before boarding."
Cons: "Delayed announcement could be done a little earlier before boarding time, not after it was past the boarding time."

Pros: "Seat was all sticky and I had to clean it"

Pros: "Price and efficiency"
Cons: "Well it is a low cost airline, you get what you pay for"

Pros: "Seat not too cramped. We didn't get lost - as BA flight did recently!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed! Info re delay was limited."

Cons: "Late takeoff - late arrival"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "have to pay 55 euro’s for checkin .... crew very rude at the desk"

Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled , next flight 2 days later. Only online checking within 24-2hours else 55£ at the airport . Tried to checking online multiple times. Advance checkin online not free , checking at airport 55£ . In Less than 2 Hour before boarding online is not possible anymore. Ryanair counter cannot check you in and you will be sent forth and back to other counters"

Pros: "No frills but got us there safely on time."
Cons: "Had to walk on the Tarmac."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was ahead of schedule, but we waited on the runway for a long time. Checking in via an app is great too."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, the application of the baggage policy is inflexible & difficult, there are no places to put your things and having seating assigned randomly when you travel with someone is ridiculous. I love discount airlines, but being charged for things that would make me happier while not costing the airline a penny is too far. Ryanair gets your initial business with artificially low rates and then nickle-and-dimes you until you pay at least as much as you would by just going with an honest carrier that charges normal prices up front. I am tired of being messed about when there are equivalently priced carriers that aren't such shysters."

Pros: "The price, and that’s it."
Cons: "The airline had hidden regulations that if you are a first time customer will cost you way more than you think. Just be carefull"

Pros: "Loved the speed and efficiency of everything; we arrived from Dublin to Gatwick 25 minutes early. Plenty of opportunity for inflight purchases for such a small flight which was great!"

Cons: "No flight announcement at Dublin airport so missed flight"

Cons: "Very long walk on landing"

Pros: "Staff is young and energetic! Beat crew on trip so fat and we've been on three other planes."
Cons: "Seats are eat too close if you are,tall. The landing was a,3,out of 10."

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "Slow, uncomfortable system of mass boarding."

Cons: "Flight was very late.(over 2 hours) Notices not posted timeously No meal tokens offered, or anything else to soften the irritation Boarding and offloading by stairs into the rain - cheapest possible options."

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Cabin crew is pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Two days in a row the gate operations seemed disorganized. My flight from London to Dublin was over an hour late, and then my return flight from Dublin to London was also an hour late today."

Pros: "Wish the back of the seats in front of me had the pocket to hold things."
Cons: "Tap water offer would be appreciated. Too bad the checked bag price is so high that everyone brings what they can onboard which fills up all the overhead storage. Tickets that are bought together should be seated together if possible and not just randomly assigned."

Pros: "737 800 plane much more comfortableScramble at boarding."
Cons: "Load in numerical order by ordering passengers to line up in that order"

Pros: "i made my flight and saved a lot of money."
Cons: "i was shocked that i had to pay for water."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"

Pros: "Was cheap"
Cons: "Was very late"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The customer service agent was horribly rude. When asked her name, because she wasn't wearing a name tag, she said "Oh, you'd like my name? I'll be sure to write it down for you." I never ended up getting her name, but the way she treated me and my fiancé - as two customers that were very much over paying - was inappropriate and unprofessional. Never again will I fly RyanAir."

Cons: "We have never flown Ryan Air before and are not from Europe. We booked or flight one day prior to the flight and were shocked to show up at the airport and pay 90 euro to check in at the airport. This is simply a price gouge. I understand a small, nominal fee for this but not 90 euro! That is asinine. I will purposely avoid Ryan Air in the future as this leaves a bad taste in my mouth."

Cons: "I was told next time I have to be careful with my carry-on because I'd have to pay £50 otherwise. However, my carry-on is TSA approved, it has a lot of pockets so it may appear to be a bit bigger but I don't overstuff and I've had no issue getting my bag into the overhead bin. Granted, the officer was kind when she said it, but I also measured my bag and weighed it before my flight and I shouldn't feel there should be an issue with my bag. On my return flight I had souvenirs in my bag (meaning more in my SAME bag) and no one said a word about my carry-on."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable It was late"

Cons: "In order to ride the plane, I have to walk outside. It is very cold."

Cons: "Cramped seats did not recline; all drinks, including water, had to be paid for; plane did not have a jet bridge and passengers had to walk up and down stairs to embark and disembark. This airline takes No Frills to an entirely new level."

Pros: "The price is the main reason to fly. It was on time and efficient. Would definitely ride this airline again."
Cons: "Restrictions on baggage made me have to rearrange. Nothing major, just a slight inconvenience."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "My wife & I had our flight departure delayed by an hour due to overcrowding of planes & our arrival was delayed by 30 minutes for the same reason. Also, the seats were cramped & they didn't recline."

Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"

Pros: "Gave 1 star for food & entertainment as didn't buy food and of course too short for entertainment Would fly again with Ryan Air if they didn't insist on a printer boarding pass, too difficult."
Cons: "Having to print out a boarding pass is almost impossible when travelling as no access to a printer. The check-in area at Dublin as poor signage as I needed to get my booking pass stamped & passports checked The seats didn't recline & because I am not tall the head rest curve pushes my head forward (on most planes) have gap behind neck so very uncomfortable only helped by reclining seat. Boarding messy as no seat order called hence isles blocked, most planes load back seats first keeping isles free, this plane had back & front stair gangways but weren't told."

Pros: "Price - boarding was good, especially considering plane was full."
Cons: "Punctuality - about 40 mins late both ways - I kinda factor that in now!!"

Pros: "The price was right. ...at least until I figured out that my checked bag cost twice as much as my airfares ticket!"
Cons: "I think maybe I should have flown on Aer Lingus instead. Next time I will do more research. Absolutely nothing is free on Ryan. The only free thing is your carry on bag. Food, drinks, prearranged seat assignment, etc. all cost money."

Pros: "Staff was nice and flight was efficient."
Cons: "A lot of hidden fees were frustrating and flight was cramped and felt like a sales pitch."

Pros: "The flight was relatively on time and fairly smooth."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you have to pay extra for EVERYTHING! For a boarding pass, for any luggage (other than a small carry-on), for a seat assignment and for a cup of tea on the plane, The flight is relatively inexpensive, but you end up paying a lot of money for the"

Pros: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."

Pros: "Cheap, quick, and safe flight."
Cons: "Because the tickets are so cheap, they try to get money out of you at every turn! They charged us $20 each to print our boarding passes at the airport (it wasn't enough to have them on our phones)! They make you pay to check a bag and you have to arrange it ahead of time (cannot ask to do it at the airport). They made a big fuss about the sizes of our bags and threatened to charge up to $55 per bag if they needed to check them at the gate! They have tiny compartments at the gate but our bags fit without any issues on the plane itself."

Pros: "boarding was on time and no delays on the tarmac"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "It was way to small, no room. Rough take off and landing"

Pros: "The flight was very late and then the gate information came up almost as the flight was boarding."
Cons: "Lack of boarding information"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They will hit you for more money every chance they get. Checked baggage. Not printing boarding pass prior to getting to the airport."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, especially the employees"

Pros: "We arrived to our destinations, and so did our bags. Good! And crew were all friendly."
Cons: "But this budget airline feels so in every sense. Boarding is from Tarmac, even coffee or tea costs checked bag, and weight limits are low, boarding is chaotic, no flight entertainment... By the time we paid for all our bags and did the whole dance of moving items from bag to bag to meet limits, we could have probably picked a better airline and had more comfort. They have a policy to charge for musical instruments, and even though there was space, on our return flight we were forced to check it, which we mostly try to avoid for safety of instrument...the way out no issue, the way back we got a stickler. Overall, for single travelers who don't care where you sit and just have a small bag, go for it. Trying to shoehorn a family of four plus instrument led to several up charges and annoying encounters at airport. I'll avoid next time."
