Cons: "Ryanair would have let me stand around for 3 1/2 hours Then told of the flight problem Thanks Kayak"
Cons: "Should be more information instead of waiting around airport They must know when a planes going to be late"
Cons: "Unnecessary charges,Dodgy website,Very bad reputation and seems you don’t give a toss.Your chat service does not work you spoil people ‘s joy when they use your service .It is just horrible"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly when we finally got on the plane 3 hours late"
Cons: "3 hours late getting on the plane at Shannon and 45 mins waiting on tarmac waiting to be ready to disembark"
Pros: "Seats have plenty of legroom and flight was good."
Cons: "Boarding slow and in the rain to get on board. Attendants spoke too quickly."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "I tried to check in on line but their website had major issues. When I arrived at the airport, Ryanair hit me with a 40 Euro surcharge for not checking in on line. Worst airline I have ever experienced in my 40 years of airline travel."
Pros: "Bordeaux terminal is horrible, not enough seats. Rough landing. No ground staff at stanstead. Massive passport queues. All round horrible experience."
Pros: "I couldn’t confirm my flight because I never received an appropriate code to verify my trip. The codes I entered were ineffective. I read I could confirm it upon arrival and after bringing my receipt to the customer service desk, they claimed my flight was not confirmed and I need to pay $40 in Euros. I feel deceived and lied to."
Cons: "I didn’t like concern for customer care and placing blame on travel agency instead of taking responsibility. I had a receipt and someone accepted my money. My contract for a flight was made the moment my money was received!"
Cons: "The service overall"
Pros: "Friendly crew. And that is it. The plane was poorly constructed inside but managed to land without falling apart. I prefer not to fly Ryan again."
Cons: "They seated us apart because we wouldn’t pay extra. Seats are cheap, uncomfortable, and don’t recline. Baggage policies were ridiculous but weren’t enforced. Very little legroom. We had to walk up the stairs and down on arrival. Apparently a proper gate costs extra."
Cons: "Two hours delayed"
Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "The check in process"
Cons: "Flight was late. They announced that it was time to start boarding so we left our seating area in the airport just to go stand around for a half hour. Then they scanned our passes and made us stand outside in the windy cold for another 15 minutes. They should’ve let us stay where we were until the plane was actually ready."
Pros: "Spacious seats with leg room"
Cons: "Too much talking over intercom"
Cons: "All flights were cancelled no refund. Ryanair rebooked me without letting me know, and then told me at the airport they could not check me in."
Pros: "Crew: cheerful, kind Smooth flight"
Cons: "Very crowded conditions at the gate and on board"
Pros: "The most relaxed Ryanair flight I have ever been on"
Cons: "Having chosen a seat in the emergency exit row, was told that I couldn't use my jacket to cover myself while I slept; I either had to wear it or store it in the overhead locker. I understand that this row needs to be kept clear in case of emergency (as the name indeed suggests), but I don't see much difference between wearing the coat and using it to cover myself. Worse than that though was the way the stewardess communicated this to me with a cold stare. I'm waiting for the day I can write a positive review of a Ryanair flight."
Cons: "The worst of all the budget airlines"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B without any hassle. I passed out as soon as I got on the plane and there was nothing that kept me from sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding seemed a bit tedious and there was a lot of unnecessary standing around."
Pros: "Your personal in plain is young, nice and I like them becouse they are smailing all time."
Cons: "You can give to pasenger one drink (coffee) like preasen!?"
Pros: "I was allocated an emergency exit seat, luck of the draw. It was the only flight left going to the UK following the extreme weather in CPH and UK."
Cons: "No tables in the seat backs! Gaudy decoration and plastics that had clearly been designed to be hard to damage. It felt like a kebab shop in a rough area or the custody area in a police station."
Pros: "Boarding and flying time very good"
Cons: "Noisy passengers (stag party and 40birthday)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no apology by Ryanair."
Cons: "Delayed take off 20 minutes late from Cork, now at STN, we stuck on the plane because the ladder and stairs to get off the plane are not ready?????? Do we blame Ryanair???? Second time I have had this excuse while flying with them!!!! Maybe this is what you get when you fly with an airline who cut corners and costs?????"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and very helpful with my sister struggling with her baggage due to her breaking her arm a few weeks ago. The crew on the ground at Shannon and on-board the flight could not do any more for us."
Cons: "The seating arrangements whereby we had to pay extra to sit together despite us booking the three tickets all at the same time. Ryanair are over-charging their customers with these hidden charges which are only declared at the check-in stage"
Pros: "Got an extra leg room seat when asked for it"
Cons: "Late arriving got of plane was left waiting when asked when the bus to terminal we were told it's wierd it's Stansted airport"
Pros: "Always travel Ryan air when possible just returned from Italy having flown with them so was disappointed when we were just left hanging around with this flight"
Cons: "Not being told what was happening having people waiting at stanstead paying for parking"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight was late to take off, and had to queue for 30 minutes at Shannon - before the plane had even landed. At stansted then had to get a long bus to the terminal and wait on the bus for 10 minutes because they couldn't open the doors. Luckily after a sprint to the station we made the last stansted express of the evening (£28 return each - 'London' airports for you)"
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Pros: "Cheap and cheerful great service very efficient"
Cons: "Very bumpy landing at Glasgow"
Cons: "You don't take US credit cards!"
Pros: "So quick and easy"
Cons: "Shortage of seating in boarding area."
Cons: "Typical indifference at Lisbon where we were sent to the gate at expected time but there was no plane - it left 40 mins late. So we left an area with seating, toilets etc and stood for 90 mins waiting to board. They KNEW there was no plane - we saw it arrive AFTER our supposed takeoff time. They'll blame the airport info but it must be sorted. Everywhere, every time we come last. No more flying for us."
Pros: "NOTHING. I haven't had a worse airport/airline experience. I would NEVER fly this airline again. No matter the cost. HORRIBLE I felt taken advantage of and swindled. Not to mention incredibly uncomfortable."
Cons: "EVERYTHING. Ryanair is hands down the most horrendous airline I've encountered. What a joke. I can't believe they're in business."
Cons: "Delayed for boarding the aircraft"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Huge delay of 9.5 hrs No indication of issues Bought a priority boarding ticket but no queue for it Seats as uncomfortable as always"
Pros: "Crew's attention. Flight's punctuality and price."
Cons: "No entertainment on board."
Pros: "I liked that I'd be off in 2hrs"
Cons: "This airline is horrible. Unless prices are significantly lower, any other European airline is significantly better"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Wait to get in the bus that took us to the plane where there was not enough bus to accommodate everyone"
Cons: "An hour late"
Pros: "No frills, on time, good value for money"
Cons: "The food selection is nothing to rave about."
Pros: "The flight was on time and I got a good seat despite not upgrading."
Cons: "Some passengers were noisy, but luckily I had earplugs."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay by two hours"
Pros: "Ryanair professionals are soo better than a few years ago"
Cons: "To pay for water if I feel thirsty during the flight"
Cons: "The process of checking in online was very misleading. While checking in online, their website continuously glitched. It would jump back a page, add products that I did not want (such as early boarding) without me selecting those products, etc. Finally after quite some time, I was able to check out only with the products I actually wanted (luggage fees). I received a confirmation email, and therefore I assumed we were good to go. We arrived at the airport to find out according to the staff we had only partially checked in. They could see that we started the process but since we apparently did not fully check in, we were charged £90 (45 per person) to check in at the airport. When I emailed Ryanair customer service and explained the entire situation, they absolutely could not have cared less. As a seasoned traveler, this one really takes the cake for poor customer service. Absolutely the worst experience that I've had with an airline. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Cheap as chips flight, lovely crew, captain speaking appreciated (had flown Vueling a couple of weeks before and they had none of this except the cheapish flight). Stansted airport nice. Time of day of flight S on offer good for me."
Cons: "Add-on costs...though still added to a little less than alternative."
