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)"
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: "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)"
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Cons: "What an extraordinarily cynical, greedy non-transparent brand RyanAir is. The whole model treats consumers like we are stupid. Charging for everything as you go, pretending it's less expensive. And worse, not informing you upfront. Congratulations Mr O'Leary for duping people to get rich. I'm now ashamed to share your surname. Signed, Richard O'Leary"
Cons: "Everyone, EVERYTHING, horrible customer service!!!"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours"
Cons: "Walked almost 20mn in rain to get to the plane"
Pros: "Everything, price, knowledge, clean planes, great customer service"
Pros: "The price was fantastic! the best around :)"
Cons: "There was no notification from cabin crew to advise us to ensure we collect our luggage BEFORE we go through the glass doors at Gatwick. We were expecting to show our passport and collect our luggage from the carrousel but didn't realise until after we went through the glass doors and had to wait over 40 mins for it to be brought to us. What was so astonishing- we were told we weren't the only ones this happened to. It would be very useful if cabin crew made the passengers aware of this to avoid it happening time after time with others/flights"
Cons: "Awful Service"
Pros: "Seats don't"
Cons: "Low quality seats"
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"
Cons: "Cramped seats and did not recline."
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: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Horrible customer service. Dirty environment"
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: "Quick, cheap and easy"
Cons: "Ryanair have never been comfortable flights"
