On time flights and all services were fine except two of our four bags were lost. We have medical equipment in one and hope they find them soon. Currently, we have received no update or information.
The flight was too short to have food and entertainment. Otherwise excellent.
I was flying with 2 older children and would appreciate if we had window row sits ,and not be seated near screeming toddlers. Sandwich was terrible.
I was not able to take the return trip back to Boston as scheduled. The first part was the flight from Warsaw to Munich with the departure time 1:15 pm on July 24. When I arrived at Chopin airport in Warsaw I learned that the departure time was changed to 9:15 am. I have not received any notification about the change of the departure time. I had to change my travel plans which could have been easily avoided if I were informed about the change. I used to have respect for the excellent service Lufthansa was providing. Lufthansa proved not to be the same reliable air line anymore. Lufthansa also managed to lose my suitcase. Very disappointed with the level of Lufthansa service.
Lufthansa keeps dropping quality of service. The food is just awful and I noticed other passengers also skipped the meals. They used Boeings before now just Airbus that feel old and are as comfortable as a bus. However Lufthansa seem to be the cheapest option so I should not complain.
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent. Friendly and professional. Attentive and patient."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people I know on different flights also have big complaints about the food."
Pros: "Boarding was crazy and confusing. Ground crew poor communication and rude"
Cons: "Improve quality of on board announcements."
Cons: "Lufthansa changed my flight last minute but was sending me updates for the old booking- it made no sense!!! Never again!"
Pros: "Free entertainment, excellent food"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm; unable to adjust air at seats"
Pros: "Seats were spacious and they fed us on the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."
Pros: "On time, onwith excellent care by staff"
Cons: "The long walk on the airport for connecting flight"
Pros: "Clean new Airbus 380. Nice crew"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. It is always uncomfortable due to the fact that you need to ask the person sitting next to you to get up because you need to use the restroom. Aside from that my overall experience was excellent. The food, entertainment, staff all helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Timeliness of fligyts"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Late departure then drove around the airport for about 30 minutes after arrival before rushing to passport control and connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and there was no one at the counter to get any information for several hours. When there finally was someone there they were not very helpful."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."
Pros: "friendly service"
Cons: "no head support"
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my l"
Pros: "Nice to be on a full service airline for once"
Pros: "Great flight and a super smoth landing in strong southerly winds."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6h. I got to the destination late And I was late for work Went to work restless"
Pros: "Left in time, arrived too early"
Cons: "Boarding took a lot of time"
Cons: "Me starting to get sick!"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Back of the plane seats should be boarding first, after babies and old people. I was stopped by the people in front of the plane putting away their luggage and standing in the aisle."
Cons: "Delayed flights for a day"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Helpful, friendly crew. Will use Condor services again."
Pros: "Service was great, pilots were amazing no decompression pain in my ears."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in Warsaw for 1:30 hours"
Cons: "The airplane was very late, so I didn't make it to my connecting flight."
Pros: "Excellent service and efficiency."
Cons: "Because of mechanical errors in our point of origin (NJ, USA) we were unable arrive on time in Germany to make this connecting flight. Very very disappointed in United Airlines. Will never travel with them again."
Pros: "This flight was slightly delayed, but the delay was small and didn't affect my connecting flight."
Cons: "the boarding wasn't "ordered" like last rows boarded first to avoid trying to get by people in earlier rows - that slows down boarding."
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "My baggage was lost. Still waiting for it. No phone call, no nothing.."
Pros: "Entertainment system very good ; crew very professional"
Cons: "Airline might have given warning of long long distance between connecting gates and need to undergo another security check. Also waiting area very cramped."
Pros: "On-time flights. Nice crew."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process."
Pros: "It was a nice, efficient flight"
Cons: "Guy at exchange should have said - All Lufthansa connections this way that way if a gate change had iccurred one didn't have to go thru security again..."
Cons: "This flight had a lactose free meal but not gluten free."
Pros: "The seats in economy were ok-- better than what you get in the US."
Cons: "The flight was late. We needed to go down stairs to board a bus to the plane. The stairs are quite difficult to negotiate for older people carrying luggage. Luckily some nice other passenger helped my wife with her bag."
Pros: "The seat was not as cramped as the Greenland Airways flight preceeding this."
Cons: "Not having additional fees for baggage. Please disclose that as part of the ticketing."
Cons: "Requested a window seat, got a middle seat. No food, ither than coffee or tea had to pay for everything. Late departure, nearly missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Luggage fee were outrageous."
Pros: "Only thing I like is seats and boarding experience"
Cons: "The terrible air hostesses rude arrogant and very disrespectful"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "SAS like other airlines gives you a chance to bid on a nicer seat. If the offer is accepted, your card is charged the amount you bid and you are upgraded. If your offer is not accepted, you keep your seat and are not charged for bidding. I placed a bid for a nicer seat and was informed the day before the flight that my bid was rejected. But when the plane was boarding, I went to the man at the desk and asked if the plane was full. He informed me that it was not, and that I could pay roughly $300 for economy plus, or $1000 for business class. Online, I was ALLOWED to bid $200 for the economy plus seat. If they are going to reject this offer and then have the seat fly empty, they are a bunch of dicks. They had a chance for me to be a happier customer and to make more money. Now they lost both. What was also terrible is that when I family with an infant was moved up a few seats, I suggested to the lady next to me who wanted the newly vacant aisle seat that she ask the flight attendant for it. The flight attendant said it was fine. As the lady sitting next to me went to her her new seat, and old man from a few rows up took it. Another flight attendant had promised it to him. So, now the two of us are crammed, she's pissed that the seat she said she could have she couldn't, and I'm there like "My god, they wouldn't even take my money to let me have a nicer, EMPTY, seat." Poor communication, poorly run. Try another airline."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Crew and food were amazing!"
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable seats with good room, complimentary beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "Late leaving, when boarding in CPH had to wait in extremely hot area once past the desk where our boarding passes were scanned and then the area where we had to queue just prior to boarding the plane was glass and therefore extremely hot. The worst issue was that there was one family with extremely loud children with the parents doing nothing. I saw a steward way up the plane looking down at them at one stage while serving another passenger but she did nothing. I like children but this was constant with the father actually encouraging the children to make more noise once he realised that other passengers were annoyed. There were plenty of other children on the plane who were behaving. Although SAS staff were aware of this they did nothing to ensure the comfort of the other passengers. One friend of mine stood for about 40 minutes at the back of the plane and another for about 20 minutes to get away from this constant noise as it was so loud and persistent. I had to listen to music to block it out.SAS staff should have intervened because this was very loud and as I have said constant i.e. every few seconds for most of the flight."
Pros: "Excellent leg room in first seat near emergency exit door"
Cons: "Seat was close to toilets so a lot of traffic"
Pros: "Timing is good"
Cons: "To craody"
Pros: "Great flight on SAS"
Cons: "Very good food and outstanding choice of movies as entertainment."
Pros: "Seats are pretty comfortably and spacious for economy class (I’m small though, so take that with a grain of salt). The lunch was pretty solid, would have preferred a hot breakfast. The vegetarian breakfast was grilled veggies with fruit and yogurt on the side, kind of a mish-mash of things."
Cons: "- Would have liked a better breakfast - More entertainment with subtitles (esp foreign films) - More entertainment selection"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Nice crew very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, but nice overall flight. Would do it again"
Pros: "We were in an empty Plus cabin at front. Coming from Miami, the hot towel service would have been nice. I blinked and missed the service. They will quickly skip you if they can. Food weird. Salmon in a box with no bread or rice or anything and a strange savory muffin. Ate neither. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above. Sorry. Nothing was good. Came in 10 mins early!"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full and everyone seemed to have at least two cases. This caused lots of jostling for space in the lockers"
Pros: "I was running late to my flight, and I found the SAS customer service line exceptionally helpful in helping me make the right decisions regarding how best to deal with the risk of missing my flight. In the end, I made my flight in time, but I found customer service critical in making the best decisions regarding my pre-flight transportation. Additionally, the flight was smooth and enjoyable."
Pros: "I liked the high-tech adjustment on the seats but i am 6ft2, 200 lbs (in good shape) and I have Parkinson's disease. The seat was just not roomy enough and I had to get up at least once an hour."
Cons: "The crew was very understanding and kind. The aft head was very limited in space too. A little more room would have been most welcome."
Cons: "Tried THREE hours to get a phone picked up to cancel my flight the day before this scheduled flight. My friends booked with Expedia the exact itinerary and were able to reach a human and we're told that SAS always reimburses for cancellations. I finally emailed vayamas/kayak to cancel and 5 days later received a reply that there was no cancellation refund. Apparently Kayak provides a no communication/no refund policy. My travel companion had the opposite experience with Expedia."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and professional."
Cons: "Only offered coffee and tea during meals."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
Pros: "I had a row to myself because I was a 1st class ticket holder but they didn't actually have 1st class seating."
Cons: "Smaller than average seat size."
Cons: "Even though it was clear from my reservation that checked baggage was not included in the initial price, there were no clear links in kayak/vayama or SAS to prepay baggage, and the price is double if you pay at the airport."
Pros: "The staff and pilot kept us informed of what was happening with our delay. The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour late."
Cons: "When we booked there was no mention of paying for the checked in luggage. When we showed up at the airport we were told to pay the inflated $75 for each bag. It was ironic since it was 6am flight and the plane was half empty. It left a bad taste for us and we are not sure if it was kayak fault or sas."
Cons: "Seats very narrow and tight."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the staff was friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "I was really cramped in my seat and was unimpressed with the food."
Pros: "Courteous staff, great food, CLEAN airplane, spacious seats. Zero complaints and WAY better than any domestic airlines (United, Delta, American) based on personal experience!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero leg room, no overhead compartment space. Pinned to the wall in my window seat by an over weight Swedish man sitting beside me. Horrible flight !!!"
Pros: "Traveled business class after winning the upgrade bid. Really felt like there was little room for improvement. The physical set up, the service, the entertainment were all delightful. The privacy, the horizontal sleep option on a 9 hour flight were just special."
Cons: "Felt the food choices needed an upgrade. Fresh is not the only important ingredient."
Pros: "Great service overall. Will definitely use again!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The entertainment System could use an update - more recent movies and TV shows would help."
Pros: "So far best flight I've ever experienced ! I was traveling to Europe and both ways I was pleasantly surprised, planes were on time , super nice crew and great food , Way to go SAS !!!"
Pros: "After completely checking in, boarding, seating and sitting on the tarmac for 25 minutes, we were told something was wrong and had to get off and wait for a new plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately we had to postpone our trip due to a family crisis. I called in an attempt to receive a voucher or some credit. I was advised that a change was possible, but that with penalties and taxes, it would amount to MORE than the price of the ticket. Hell of a way to run a railroad!....speaking of railroads, that gives me an idea for when we reschedule!!"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Pros: "Food and movies were great!"
Cons: "Couldn't afford a seat with leg space."
Pros: "The new cabin and video monitor are nice. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Food is the same as I flew last year. Taste is the same. Need some changes and variety. Movies can include more recent ones."
Pros: "connection was easy and quick"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."
Pros: "Small but very efficient airport Pilot actually flew lo for a period of time to enjoy the view of a Russian village and fjords and glacier"
Pros: "Very professional and accommodating staff. Acceptable food. Efficient and on time boarding."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but legroom was too little to get comfortable on such a long flight."
Cons: "no vegetarian food I am always told should have ordered at booking but this option is always made obscure, difficult or impossible too cramped and plain full to capacity"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Packed flight. No food available ( even for purchase) in economy"
Cons: "I had to pay 66 Euros for checked in luggage even though at no point during booking was this made known to me. I thoroughly checked the conditions and had no option but to pay at check-in."
Pros: "They had a kiosk, which was nice. In the US (Dulles) on my way out, I had no way to print a picket without waiting in line. I don't have a printer at home and the mobile ticket system was not working, so I had to wait in a very long line despite the fact that I had no luggage just to get my ticket. Every other airline had a Kiosk. In Gdansk, I was glad to see that they had a kiosk."
Cons: "Although I could print my the ticket for the first leg at the kiosk, I could not print the second. I asked the woman at the desk, and she could not print either. I had to fly to the connecting airport with no connecting ticket in hand."
No service on a 45 minute flight.
Pros: "Nothing,except I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "Everything.They don’t ever offer you WATER in a 10 hour flight!! Check in crew rude. Attends dismissive to rude."
Cons: "More nice crew. TV on the plane"
Pros: "Wifi and the nice crew"
Cons: "The food option"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled at last minutee"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Insufficient staff to check people in. Over 1 hour delay; no updates were made to the flight boards on the airport. No complementary food or water was provided on this 9.5 hour flight. Landing was bumpy and nerve-wracking."
Pros: "Comfort. Seat selection. Price."
Cons: "Crew attitude. Check in."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The crew was harsh and not nice The food was terrible"
Cons: "Not worth what you think you might save on air fare. They really seemed interested only in trying collect every possible fee they could. Instead of weighing carry on at check-in, they wait until the boarding process."
Pros: "The crew is great, gave me a bandaid was smiles and kind."
Cons: "The boarding was a mess, and the arrival was long- got to Ft lauderdale 20 minutes early only to sit on the tarmac. The customs in Ft Lauderdale is the real mess- no organization, 1 line and too few customs people working. That airport is a nightmare!"
Pros: "Plane was a little bit comfortable"
Cons: "Feed the passengers, a flight for 8 hour without even water is unbelievable"
Pros: "The aircraft was brand new and clean."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 5 hours for a total wait of 9+ hours without any contact for food vouchers, apologies or a compensation. We picked this flight for the convenience of the location and connection, but not sure if will ever do again in future. Also, no entertainment option in the flight at all."
Pros: "When it was over"
Cons: "Ridiculous lack of service, supwr low cost low quality airline. Never again."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hrs Inflight entertainment down for 9hr flight Have to buy water!"
Pros: "Everything except the food!"
Pros: "Plane seemed rather new and clean. Seat assignment put my husband and I together. Liked having personal screen for entertainment, with easy to see headphone plug-in and usb charging as well."
Cons: "No legroom, thus very cramped for an overnight flight. Wish we had been given a seat on the aisle - there were some empty ones on the flight. I ended up using one for awhile halfway thru flight because center was so cramped."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Very accommodating. Had a delay of 1 1/2 hours (it happens). Lounge was awesome. Long line to get in waiting area to board. Was very crowded in the room right before boarding."
Cons: "Somehow I got gluten free meals when only my wife should have. The crew helped us through this though as best as they could."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and the plane was clean and modern"
Cons: "Boarding process was a little convoluted and we were delayed by an hour"
Cons: "My wife and I made our reservation 4 1/2 months in advance. We were notified of an airplane change and only upon my further investigation and telephone calls to Norwegian it was apparent that we no longer had seats we had reserved. As a result we were stuck in the last 2 seats in the rear of the plane. Extremely disappointed with Norwegian. Richard and Sharyn Klassen"
Pros: "Food, price, and long stay in Oslo to give time to enjoy city"
Cons: "We were staying in Oslo for 21 hours, but we thought that the checked baggage would stay at the airport. Instead it came out at baggage claim. We even asked the Norwegian staff multiple times whether we have to pick it up in Oslo; they said, 'No.' They said that it would remain at the airport. When we got back to the airport we had unnecessary stress of finding our luggage in some unclaimed baggage office. We almost missed the flight. Norwegian staff needs to be knowledgeable about how baggage is handled."
Pros: "We had a 4 hour delay due to mechanical difficulties with our first plane. I get it, it happens. But the delay was not communicated for a while, even though the departure board was showing it. When it was announced, no one from Norwegian was there, just airport personnel and they did what they could. Once the plane did arrive it took forever for them to allow us to board. In the air the flight was fine. Cramped seating for sure, but that is to be expected. The in-flight movies were slim picking, especially for a 8 hour flight, and the food was ok for what it was. Overall, not an enjoyable experience but that was you get with discount flights."
Pros: "Everything pleasant and easy."
Cons: "Landing was a bit of a jolt But only for five seconds"
Pros: "On time and helpful stewads."
Cons: "Not serving meals to everyone. Ipaid more fir my ticket so I had a hot meal but my daughter and granddaughter had no food. They bought a salad and sandwiches. So bad almost inefible. How can a French originated flight made such bad food."
Pros: "Food was ok and staff was friendly."
Cons: "I booked an isle seat, however it was switched to a middle seat without my knowledge. I was not informed that movies/entertainment could only be accessed from United app on my phone, so I didn't bring my phone charger with me. Seats were quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excelent Confort and atención thanks"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty easy"
Cons: "If you do pay you don’t get offered a drink. Charge €80 for a bag didn’t tell you how much before sending you up to pay holding you boarding pass hostage. They increased that from €50 because of the summer."
Pros: "On time and very comfortable"
Pros: "Awesome flight. smooth And kind flight crew. Would highly recommend Norweign!!"
Pros: "What is there to like?"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times then cancelled the next day,"
Pros: "Nice big plane."
Cons: "No WIFI, no water for free for an 8 hour flight and limited entertainment. Come on its 2018 get it together. Jet Blue and emirates are my top favorite."
Pros: "Good aircraft. USB plug @ every seat."
Cons: "Boarding was late& a little disorganized"
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Pros: "The flight from Boston to Gatwick was most pleasant - plenty of leg-room in Economy Class. The food was somewhat mediocre, especially the snack served at breakfast-time. Overall, however, a very good five and a half hour journey."
Pros: "Flight was safe...!!! The most important thing...!!!"
Cons: "No food Tight seats Narrow isle Bathroom a mess Not even a free inflight drink"
Cons: "No meal served on an 9 hour flight .... no blanket or pillow WOW didn’t realize that was possible"
Pros: "Great leg room considering it's a short flight."
Cons: "Rude staff."
Cons: "Boarding staff a bit unwelcoming"
Pros: "Value was great. Though not lie flat, seats had a good recline and were comfy."
Cons: "There were no pillows or amenitt kits and video selection was thin but for the price, who cares?"
Pros: "The price of the flight was good, the boarding was easy and he crew was friendly."
Cons: "The food was inedible and served cold, for such a long flight this should be addressed. Also, the cabin lights werr not turned off for an overnight flight until about 3.5 hrs in when the flight left close to 10pm and when they were they werr only dimmed with the TV screens left on making it very hard to sleep. The temperature was also very hot. The flight was extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "They didn't dim the lights as much as previous flights, which would have helped to sleep. However, none of the tv's for entertainment were working for the entire flight. I know that the flight attendants attempted to reset it a couple times, and that it was out of their hands, but it made the flight very disappointing."
Pros: "The upgrade I took on the flight was excellent"
Cons: "The Gatwick terminal and boarding gate procedures"
Pros: "Its very cheap! But its a typical no-frills airline that doesn't give you food, extra leg room, etc. The woman at the check in line was super nice, though, and gave me a seat in an empty row."
Cons: "They didn't give us any (free) food for a flight from Providence to Dublin. You have to get your carry on approved by the check in desk first, so you can't go right through security even if you've printed out your boarding passes."
Pros: "Nice, new airplane, modern bathroom, movie selection pretty good, was expecting a low budget look, but it was all high-tech and attractive."
Cons: "the usual complaint \i have with all the airplanes, not enough legroom, and no, \i will not pay extra on principle. I also had a problem with the TSA agent, but \i guess that is not your problem. Had to wait a long time for "opt-out.""
Pros: "Efficient and cheap"
Cons: "No free drinks or food, not even water. Very cramped"
Pros: "787 Dreamliner - nice plane. Crew was pilot and attentive"
Cons: "Second meal - sandwich was dry - and brownie was too large and too stale"
Pros: "Every trans-Atlantic flight I've had with Norwegian has been on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which is an incredibly comfortable airplane compared to current standards. Ventilation and lighting are superior in a way that I doubt can be corrected on older aircraft. Norwegian's crew are *superb*. I've never had such snappy service on an aircraft; ordering via the built-in touchscreens is quick and straightforward. Also, I pre-bought the meal for a 7-hour flight, and it also came with a snack near the end, and each came with a drink."
Cons: "The food is not as good as Turkish Airlines. I don't think you can order anything but snacks and sandwiches if you don't pre-order, which isn't very enjoyable on a trans-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "Excellent crew, clean and new plane, large windows and luggage compartments, comfortable seats with foot rest, spacious and clean. Great value ticket"
Cons: "Man staff on the ground at check in spoke a limited English."
Pros: "Loved the modern amenities - movie selection and being able to order snacks and drinks from the screens. Orders were delivered quickly."
Cons: "It was SO cold for the entire flight. Boarding process was very confusing with the buses. No restroom in gate area."
Pros: "WiFi worked excellent."
Cons: "Lost and Found does not work. I forgot a thing in the plane. Norwegian tell me to contact Lost & Found at airport and they tell me to get in contact with Norwegian. I've tried it 3 rounds now but still nothing."
Pros: "Our flight has supposedly been rebooked for the next day free of cost ...but the time keeps switching to one later and later so we'll see if I ever actually get out of of here"
Cons: "It took us over 1.5 hrs to board the plane only to sit on the plane for the next 5 hours and not go anywhere. Finally we were told to disembark from the plane and had to wait another 3 hrs to be situated at a 1 star hotel 15 mins from the hotel where we had to wait another 45 mins just to get inside out of the freezing cold to actually get a room. Meanwhile, neither on the flight, nor anywhere else were we provided or offered any food or water. On top of that, because I was forced to check in luggage that was a carry on, I had no accesss to any of my belongings for the duration of this time. There was also very minimal and poor communication throughout. Very poor experience overall. I don't think I will be flying with Norwegian Airlines again!"
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
Cons: "This is the terrible airlines that we have ever experienced. It’s not organized at all. After booking the ticket, I didn’t say we have to check in 2 hours prior to not to get charged at the airport. When we stand at the encounter, everyone in line didn’t know this and had to turn around to get in the different line to pay for checking in. After that, we had to get back in a long line and the lady didn’t mentioned that she can check in our luggage’s. With that being said, we had to go back to other encounter to pay for checked in luggage. We paid almost $200 for checking in and luggage. How stupid is that? We and other customers in line all said we felt it’s the rip off. We come to Ireland for vacation and expected it would be welcome and nice. This turned us off. Never fly with this airlines again. Thumbs down!!!"
Cons: "Had to stand outside in rain & wind while waiting to board. Took a very long time to board. Very loud people. Excessively loud engine noise. Attendant made me open my window shade. Small seat did not recline. No seat pocket for magazine."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Service was not great. The baggage allowance was lower than other airlines, forcing us to repack before we checked our bags. Checking in online was mandatory-something that wasn’t very noticeable in the email when we had a million other trip details to attend to so we didn’t and ended up having to pay a fee to check in. Ridiculous. My wife and I were not seated together even though I booked both tickets together. The inexpensive upfront price of the flight is not worth it since they will trick you into paying in other ways."
Pros: "The trip was smooth once we got a plane. Everything else was as ecpected."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and finally departed 2 hours late. Interrupted a full day’s worth of travel plans."
Pros: "There is nothing to like about an airline that appears to have low fares and then nickel & dimes you for everything, typical bait-and-switch style of doing business."
Cons: "First of all, this airline needs to train their staff better. The gate agent I dealt with on a flight has no business in any field where she would be required to work with people. Second, this airline needs to get their s*@t together when it comes to baggage. I was humiliated (by the creature they hired for a gate agent) when I was forced off the boarding line and then demanded to pay 200 euros (cash only and in euros only) for carry-on luggage that was under the size and weight requirements, and had already flown, without incident, on numerous flights during the same trip. I filed a complaint with Ryanair and weeks later received a very passive, useless, response from some brain-dead individual in corporate I suppose. No one at Ryanair cared about the mafioso-type treatment my family and I, including my 80-year-old mother, received. Avoid this airline at all costs (literally and figuratively)! It will not save you money, or anything else. It will only cost you more!"
Cons: "We attempted to cancel our reservations more than a week before our trip because my husband was hospitalized. Not with the flu or a broken arm, but a major and serious life threatening illness we are still dealing with. We provided numerous documents as proof of the absolute dire situation and they denied the request over and over again. I get that the tickets were "non-refundable" but at least offer vouchers, credit, or be totally a stand-up company and refund the tickets. It wasn't buyers remorse, trust me, we would have preferred to be in Portugal, rather than sitting in a hospital hoping and praying for his recovery."
Cons: "Baggage policy"
Cons: "How rude the crew members were and unhelpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "We were charged almost 200 euros extra because we did not check in online (which we could not do because we had been traveling for 30 hours and did not have Wi-Fi in the air) and when we went to check in the receptionist was rude about the fact that we had not checked in, so we had to go across to a different counter to pay our fee, go back to check in at the first counter, and then was told we could not be seated together, when it turned out the flight was half empty. Besides all of this, the planes are not nice, you are only allowed one carry on (no personal item) and the seats are not comfortable. I thought we would save money but check in fees and ridiculous baggage fees made this flight cost more than a nicer airline."
Pros: "Customer service was horrifying"
Pros: "Great service, friendly crew. Smooth flight"
Pros: "On time and friendly service"
Cons: "Hard landing was a bit worrisome"
Cons: "Flight cancelled just a day before departure."
Pros: "I like how inexpensive the flight was. This would make up for the other things had we not been seriously taken advantage when it came to our luggage!"
Cons: "We checked in online the night before our flight but didn't get a confirmation. We didn't think anything of it until we got to airport to find that we didn't show checked in, had to pay EXTRA to have our boarding passes printed off, and had to pay for EACH of our bags as well!! OH! And it's almost DOUBLE if you pay for it at the airport where you can weigh it then if you do it online! And take caution! Our bags that are considered carry on size are still too big for this airline do you will forced to check Them! This is obviously how they offset their inexpensive tickets! The cost of the ticket, once you add in all the other unexpected expenses in order to actually get on the flight, was NOT worth the "cheap" tickets we got! That's the only reason we decided to fly to Ireland while on our trip to the U.K. Had we known it would cost this much we never would have come to Ireland for two days!!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The employees were just as unhelpful flying to dublin as they were flying out of dublin. Simple questions were met with disdain and annoyance rather than polite answers. We went through 3 different people before finding out that we didn't need to go through any of them which the first person could have told us. By the way the first person was a customer service attendant and he swiftly moved us on to the next line to stand in which was completely unnecessary and a waste of everyone's time. I will never fly with ryanair again."
Cons: "This is the worst airline I have ever flown and I have been flying a long time. It was hot, cramped, both flights were late and they had us sitting on the plane. And, it really is not as cheap as it first appears with all the extra feeds."
Cons: "self service kiosks were not working in airport and we were told it would cost 50 pounds each to print boarding pass. We followed directions to try to print on our own by paying for expensive internet service at the airport but still were unable to view & print boarding passes. After talking to several rather unhelpful reps, someone at the Sky Desk made an exception to allow us "free" boarding passes. This was just after 2 people were charge full price (50L each for passes & full price to check luggage, after they didn't get promised email to check bags online) Cheap fares doesn't make up for frustration"
Cons: "Seats are too small and don't recline. There's no entertainment. We sat on the aircraft for a hour without any explanation on why we were waiting."
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane."
Cons: "Hidden fees after hidden fees... The lady at the check in counter said my bag was fine... At the gate they said it was to big and weighed too much. £50 Extra. I bought an exit row seat because I'm big guy. The seat belt didn't fit so I asked for an extension and the flight attendant got very snippy with me and said she would not give me an extension because of "safety reasons". (This has never been the case on any other airline I have flown.) She then very rudely said because of your rather large size we are going to have to move you to another seat where we can give you an extension. Like I said I know I'm a big guy but you don't have to so loud and rude about it. At least say it with a smile and some kindness... Wow. It was just uncomfortable and not a good feeling. Later when I got to sitting in my new seat, they came through with the convince cart (no free snacks or drinks, you pay for everything.) She nor the other attendent with her asked if we wanted and thing, if we were doing alright, nothing. Thank God it was only a 1.5 hour flight. So glad that experience is over."
Pros: "the flight crew was nice and friendly when they werent trying to sell you something."
Cons: "Ryanair is a bunch of criminals that prey on the Americans traveling abroad. Yes its a discount airline but my $18 flight turned into $150 after all the hidden fees were paid for. To charge a passenger 15 pounds each to print a boarding pass is absolutely ridiculous. Everyone else around us could use their phones as a boarding pass except for the traveling Americans who did not have access to a printer while on vacation is criminal. Lesson learned, I will never fly Ryanair again and will tell every American I know not to be blinded by their discount fare."
Cons: "We departed an hour late. The crew was very unprofessional. The landing wasn't good. Kept the light on."
Pros: "The efficiency of the crew"
Cons: "The flight was almost an hour late"
Pros: "The price is great. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Delayed with no explanation. Chaotic boarding. Super cramped seats."
Cons: "four hour delay--missed my appointment"
Pros: "Cheap flight Pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Ended up missing flight because they said I didn't check in online. I did everything I was prompted to do (passport number, add a bag, etc), but apparently there was another button on the bottom of the webpage I had to scroll down and click. They wanted to charge us 45 euros each to check in onsite. The first person also said we didn't pay our baggage fee, which we did. Once we got things situated the doors were closed (even though the plane wasn't leaving for another 45 minutes) and they wouldn't let us through. They wanted to charge us 100 euros each to change to another flight, when the flight itself cost 39 euros. They wouldn't refund the baggage fee either! Apparently they can charge such a low ticket price because they get their money by scamming people out of it. When we finally DID get on a flight the next day, it was like an infomercial the whole way there...trying to sell people everything from water to watches. I would never suggest Ryanair to anyone."
Pros: "Really enjoyed my flight to London & back to Dublin with my Nieces"
Cons: "Would have loved it if there were some Irish stewards or stewardesses on board as it would have been easier to understand their accents and they tend to warmer & friendlier in their dealings with passengers"
Pros: "Quick trip from London to Dublin. Clean, new aircraft. Safe flight from start to finish."
Cons: "No complimentary water!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are to close to one another and gets unconfortable fast"
Pros: "No frills cheep short flight. Good enough"
Cons: "The comfort"
Cons: "No one knew where the boarding gate was."
Cons: "slow, disorganized check in. Boarding is hideous, I'd rather wait in a DMV line. Airline run as if consumer, and luggage, are to be avoided. I cannot understand why Anyone would fly them routinely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no on was told"
Cons: "Did not know there was a 45 euro check in fee per person...never was advertised!"
Cons: "Delay is annoying!"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Tried to charge us for everything, including 15 pounds for printing a boarding pass. WiFi was only free for an hour at the airport, flight was delayed by two hours, plane lacked AC and was super cramped and hot. Boarding was also a mess."
Pros: "Cost Convenience"
Cons: "Walking across tarmac to board No music or anything"
Cons: "Problems with securing printed boarding passes (non EU) as could not print them ourselves at motel. Finally able to get them without charge after protest. Problem paying for checked bag online (did not go thru) so had to pay higher fee at airport. All this caused delay and rush to not miss flight. Not familiar with Ryan Air M.O. Not informed till 2 days before flight of online check in requirements. Not told could check in 30 days ahead-so could not print passes at home in US before travel. Did not know would have to enter and exit plane via stairs with large carry-on. Ryan Air should be more up front about extra charges incurred if you don't follow their protocol-esp. for first time users. Now know and will not fly with them again. Ended up costing as much or more than flying Aer Lingus Bristol to Dublin would have."
Cons: "The crew said there would not be drinks because of anticipated turbulence for the entire flight. There was NO turbulence."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and took forever"
Pros: "We had been scared by other reviews, but this was not as bad as we'd read. There is no entertainment onboard, no food except for sale, and some luggage restrictions you need to take note of before you check in. Otherwise, quick smooth flight, friendly staff, luggage arrived, so overall fine experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "If you are flying without luggage or carry-on, Ryan Air might be fore you."
Cons: "The airline charges a ridiculous amount for EVERYTHING! We bought our tickets and realized almost immediately that bags were not included. We tried to upgrade our ticket type to be inclusive of a bag, but took two hours to navigate their automated "customer service". Finally got through to a live person (which they charge for), they will allow you to upgrade the ticket if you bought through KAYAK. You have to purchase your bags separately, and 1 bag was significantly more than what our ticket costs. I contacted KAYAK roughly 5 hours after the original purchase, and they could do nothing because Ryan Air is a low cost carrier. It was cheaper buy Aer Lingus seats inclusive of luggage than to add luggage on Ryan Air. I will never fly Ryan Air again, and caution anyone trying to buy Ryan Air through KAYAK"
Pros: "We were unable to check bags in advance. Staff handled at bag drop."
Pros: "Love the crews of Ryan Air!"
Cons: "I wish that there was at least water for free."
