Better selection of movies and TV progress, staff was outstanding

Cons: "Crew was a bit loud and kept me awake during flight in one of the tail seats"
Pros: "Best flight in a long time - comfortable seats, good food and service, good entertainment."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and boarding went smoothly and ontime."
Cons: "Seats are very close together. Young child behind me kicked the seat most of the way. Bags took a very long time to come out."
Pros: "Never made it onto the plane due to flight departing early and my flight landed in Dublin late. So there was no experience for me on this flight"
Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart. But by time we walked out we all missed our flight and had to rebook. I’m sure the flight to Madrid could’ve waited for the 15 of us. But they didn’t."
Pros: "The crew was charming and very attentive to passengers."
Cons: "Could have announced that there was a cost for ginger ale etc. before passengers placed request. Frankly overall it was excellent service."
Cons: "2 hour delay on an hour flight"
Pros: "No food no entertainment"
Pros: "When I finally settled into my seat on the British Airline and that Hostess came around and offered me a couple of free drinks that was the best thing that happened to me all day."
Cons: "For an older couple like us did not like having to climb the steps up into the Plane and being out in the rain did not help. However that was not the worst part of the arrangement between getting off the Aer Lingus plane and with so little time to reach the gate for our BA flight to Denver it was a total disaster. Due to a minor problem my wife had with her foot I had asked for a wheel-chair to be available when we got off the plane at Heatrow. Good job that I did because with out their help we would never have made it in time for your flight to Denver. Between up and down in elevators, running along the corridors, in and out of a bus and I myself trying to catch up with those poor attendants. I was sorry that I did not get a second wheel chair for my self. Only for the flight was delayed by about 20 minutes we would have missed the flight. Who ever was responsible for making the arrangements of just allowing a time of 1 hour and 10 minutes between flights needs to figure out a better time schedule before people of our age ends up getting stressed out and end up with a heart attack. Very stressful indeed, believe I will never let this happen to me again. Fly/Us you need to fix this."
Pros: "I love Aer Lingus, they appear to be always on time and nice comfy seats. No problem boarding, was nice and quick."
Cons: "Nothing to not like at mo."
Cons: "NO complimentary drinks or snacks. Seats are bolt upright. Not comfortable."
Pros: "Shannon is a very easy airport."
Cons: "I was unable to get my seats assigned from America. I had to go to the Aer Lingus desk when I arrived to get seat assignment."
Pros: "took off early once they had accounted for everyone, and arrived a little early too."
Cons: "While I didn't have to check my bag on the first longer flight, I did have to check it on the connecting flight which delayed me somewhat in getting into the city of London. Not awful, but strange... Free-for-all when boarding, not nearly as organized as it was at JFK."
Pros: "The efficient flight but no drinks or snacks w/o purchase"
Pros: "Seats were larger with more leg room. Flight calm and without incident"
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Nice seats food was decent crew excellent"
Cons: "Not enough room"
Pros: "Boarding was good....overhead room for carry-ons probably due to a less than full flight. The entertainment was varied, current movies, and wide selection of music. The crew was as efficient as possible and accommodating. However, we all have learned not to expect much."
Cons: "Comfort is lacking as is the case with jammed seating on all planes these days. It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, but since I resent it being done to me, I do not do it either out of respect for the passenger behind me."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"
Cons: "Short flight but had to pay for snacks or drinks on Aer Lingus."
Cons: "I had to pay 3 euros for a cup of black tea? Seriously? The captain could have lowered the volume when speaking. It was too loud."
Cons: "Boarding process in Dublin was long"
Pros: "Ahead is schedule"
Cons: "Even had to pay for coffee"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks of any kind."
Pros: "Boarding Gate crew were good."
Cons: "Seat cushions are worn out. Need new foam. Hostesses spent more time talking to each other during food and beverage service than to the passenger."
Cons: "Out of your control but the shuttling around from gate to gate was inconvenient"
Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice looking, very friendly, smelled nice they could not have been warmer people!!"
Cons: "Paying for beverages seemed a bit much."
Cons: "They airline left our luggage in Dublin and we still do mat have it. It's been over a day. 25 other people were impacted by this error. My daughters wedding is in two days. I have no clothes. My tray table was filthy. Had to ask the flight attendant for a wet napkin to clean the tray and my hands."
Pros: "Orderly boarding. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "Online seat assignment was unavailable. Once onboard, it felt like flight staff were reluctant to give water and keep passengers hydrated on the Air Lingus flight from SFO to DUB. They even offered my 11 and 14-yr olds coffee and tea over water! We had to ask 3 times every time we needed water. Both Aer Lingus flights to DUB and to MAD were delayed."
Pros: "entertainment was great on board food was good (for airline food) staff was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Loved being on a flight for holiday, and knowing I wasn't being overcharged for needless frills."
Cons: "I don't remember if they served a drink, I know things were for sale. But that seems to be the European way."
Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."
Pros: "On time and very comfortable."
Pros: "We left on time and landed a bit early. Only 1 1/2 hour flight, so no food, drink or service, but it got us there."
Pros: "Efficient staff and timely I would book again for sure"
Cons: "Plane was full of noisy school rugby children"
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "Mobile check-in not an option. Seats not available until check-in without paying. Nothing is complimentary on a rather expensive flight."
Cons: "Late departure on way back"
Cons: "I requested an aisle or window seat and was not able to get one."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Hard landing."
Pros: "Our return trip from Shannon to JFK was the best flying experience we have ever had. I requested an aisle seat for my 6'5" husband and we were given the emergency aisle. The flight crew was outstanding- Ashley and Hazel could not have been nicer to us. My TV set was broken in my seat but I did not care as I had a lot of reading to do. It was an outstanding return trip from a wonderful time in Ireland"
Pros: "Their accents"
Cons: "Delays, missed connections, their proposed solutions to missed connections, their inability to hold connecting flights just a few minutes to allow passengers on a delayed flight to make their connection."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Unknown"
Pros: "We were late for our connecting flight because of a plane issue and no one from the Air Lingus did anything to help us get to our next flight out of London to Munich. We asked several times and they said follow the signs ."
Pros: "Friendly efficient service and complimentary late flight snacks with beverages a nice touch you don't get on other transatlantic flights"
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment until the airport. I was sent an email to check in & was not allowed to. I called the airline & still could not get a seat assignment."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. The movie selections were outstanding."
Cons: "When it came time to choose our seats, there was no indication of where the bathrooms or any walls were. We chose a row in the middle if the plane. Come to find out it was against the bathrooms. Seats were unable to recline making for a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Staff - attitude and so forth. All was done nicely"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They checked everyone’s carry on bags, which made the boarding process incredible slow, then they made you stand on a bus until it was full, to drive to the plane to walk up stairs in the rain. I kept my bag for 20 hours, flying from Vancouver to Calgary to London and before my flight to Madrid. They didn’t care that I said I didn’t want to give it up or that I had to make a connection. Madrid’s airport is notorious for have slow baggage handling, so they are making me wait. I packed for 2 weeks in a carry on and back pack to avoid checking luggage. I am disappointed."
Cons: "If we would have made the flight, unfortunately the flight from Malaga was delayed and caused us to miss the flight from Madrid to Chicago, I’m now sitting in Boston waiting for a flight to Chicago and will probably miss the last bus to Milwaukee"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment available. Why are some airlines still charging for snacks?!?"
Cons: "We love everything was our first time and was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding crew forced us to check-in our handbags saying there's no space on board. The flight was half empty. We had to wait 30 mins to get our luggages when we arrived. Very annoying."
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "TSA lack of checking my suitcase in a timely manner caused us to lose our connecting flight to <madrid. <our flight was late 20 minutes and sat in tarmac another 15 minutes before pulling in to gate. This limited the amount of time to get to train, get on a bus, as the first bus was full, so we had to wait another 10 minutes, etc. <heathrow has terrible navigational system of transportation to move customers through the airport. We missed our connecting flight. The TSA purposefully and maliciously laughed at their ability to control myu suitcase and not check it so delaying my departure and missing my connecting flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The seats were not very wide, but I endured."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no notice.or explanation Stuck at Heathrow no alternatives available. We are a party of 7 3 young children and 1 disabled passenger . Now one of us flys tomorrow via Madrid, and palma before mahon. All others fly Sunday via Barcelona. Hol ruined disgrace"
Pros: "No entertainment and no vegetarian selections in the menu unless you book in advance again the plane was dirty"
Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
Pros: "It was a short but comfortable flight."
Cons: "Food and movies"
Pros: "Comfort, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "no complementary drinks, coffee, snack, nothing? not very hospitable"
Pros: "It was short, but delayed. Good security-very thorough although under-staffed"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, NO free beverage or snack. Flight attendants were ridiculously busy with running credit cards for passengers who bought food/etc that others could not even get to the toilets. NO entertainment at all. Felt like United but at least no one yelled at me ir hit me."
Pros: "5 star"
Cons: "Decent for a 2 hour flight"
Pros: "The long wait at the airport had air conditioning"
Cons: "Webjet.com and me are waiting to get my flight changed by British Airways. I tried to change my flight because of paperwork issues. I was not given any paper to report the issue. I took pictures of myself at the British Airways counter. I called customer service. They told me my contract was with webjet.com. Webjet.com told me British Airways initially reported that it was a no show. (I was at the counter for about 2 hours, and they knew I had a contract with webjet.com). I hope that my contract with webjet.com does not become frustrated because of British Airways interference. I was not even allowed to change my flight to come back at the end of September. It is very likely that British Airways has some part of the money paid to webjet.com. I am still waiting for British Airways to cooperate. I don't understand why webjet.com had to tell me British Airways initially reported my long wait and conversations with their agents for 2 hours as a no show. I can prove I was there and that I talked to their agents. I also have the email from webjet.com in which they told me British Airways was reporting it to the webjet.com as a no show (and they knew I had a contract with webjet.com)"
Pros: "Because of a delay in the first leg of my trip, I missed my connection in London. However, I was placed on the next available flight without much hassle, although I did arrive later than the group I was meeting up with."
Cons: "I was not allowed to check in online, so I had to go to the airport early to check in. Despite purchasing my flight months prior, and arriving at the airport with plenty of time to to check in, I was told that I was going to be bumped from my flight because it was overbooked, which would mean that I would miss my international connection. After waiting for everyone else to board on a tiny flight, there suddenly was a seat available and they let me board, but they managed to not put my bag on the flight, which means I have no luggage. Lastly, despite checking in more than 7 hours ahead of time for the international flight, I was given a middle seat and was told that I would have to pay $40 if I wanted to switch to an aisle/window. The middle seat was cramped and uncomfortable, particularly for 8 hours (after 7 hours of connections and waiting in airports). UGH."
Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."
Pros: "They reconnected me very quickly"
Cons: "Missed my flight"
Pros: "The stuff was very friendly"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Seat uncomfortable. Again, no free wifi in the XXI century. Hello !!!"
Pros: "The pilot was gentle landing the pane"
Cons: "No complimentary anything, not even water"
Pros: "Food awful no entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "old small plane the flight attendants were not service minded"
Pros: "Short Connection and good service."
Pros: "The food and entertainment options were both above average."
Cons: "The flight was being run by Iberia, not British Airways. Iberia has a policy which did not allow me to check in without proof of a return flight. Unfortunately, my travel partner had booked the return flight and did not share the details with me. I was not able to reach my travel partner and, as such, was forced to buy a new ~$2,300 return ticket on the spot in order to provide the necessary proof. This was an extreme inconvenience, as I nearly missed my flight. If Iberia or British Airways made its travelers aware of this policy in advance of their check in. I have no intention of flying Iberia ever again."
Pros: "Service flight crw"
Cons: "Terribly crowded"
Pros: "Excellent service by crew. Attention to meeting everyone's needs. Was impressed with their discreet yet efficient assistance to an individual who became ill on board. Was really impressed by this."
Cons: "Drink choices , including champagne, were great. Food however, while improved since our last experience, was mediocre ."
Cons: "This flight was even tighter and my space even smaller. We were on the first row after business class. Not only was I extremely tight with no way to get out of my seat, but we had a curtain in our faces. I found that to be extremely uncomfortable and quite useless. This flight had no TV and no other means of entertainment, having the seat in front of us so tight that I could not even move my legs. Fortunately this flight was only a couple hours long."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No basic items such as water and coffee. I have to buy them!"
Cons: "The flight was awful! Boarding was unorganized. Once on the plane, space was TIGHT! I have flown with Iberia before and had leg room and TVs behind the chairs. This was not like this. Seats were uncomfortable for an 8 hour flight, smelly, and flimsy. I have never been more uncomfortable. The crew were nice but one was very rude to a passenger snapping at him and all ignored a very drunk man on my flight as much as possible. This man was very disruptive for most of the flight singing, shaking seats, touching other passengers, and walking about the flight. I did not feel safe at all! The staff would tell him to sit down, walk away, and he would be instantly back up. Staff would see this and ignore. I had no idea what to do. I felt unsupported and unsafe. The flight had constant turbalence to go along with it. To the point that they canceled dinner. I wanted to kiss the ground when I got off the flight. This was absolutely miserable. I could not be more disappointed."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Free meal Option to check luggage to final destination or to layover point Staff professional apart from closing desks."
Cons: "Self check in machine slow - crashed while printing boarding pass Massive queue at check in and bag drop counter Staff closed check in desks despite long queue No easy way to get from hotel to airport Only flight map on overhead screens"
Cons: "They are trying to optimize seats in the plane and I could barely fit in the space provided in the plane. Really unpleasant flight"
Pros: "ORD -> MAD The flight was on time, it boarded on time, it took off only a few minutes late (you can blame that on incredibly crowded ORD). It landed, on time, to an empty terminal. The plane itself was new, very clean, and very well kept. The crew was friendly and spoke a wide variety of languages, including English, French, and of course Spanish. They had no issue with Latin American Spanish or European Spanish accents, which is a concern for some. Overall the flight got me to my destination on time, in one piece, and without breaking the bank."
Cons: "The seats, oh the dreaded seats. In economy class the seats are the most uncomfortable thing you can sit on for 8 hours. If they replaced them with plastic folding lawn chairs, you would have a better time. But that is what you get for flying coach."
Pros: "Food options"
Cons: "Sold as British Airways, but actually an American Airlines flight No staff at BA counter for check-in. Had to go to American to check-in (worked this out myself) When printing tickets for check-in, was not supplied with bag tags. Had to approach counter for staff to print bag tags. Seat monitor was small and poor quality Limited movie selection"
Pros: "My husband and I greatly enjoyed our non-stop flight from London to Chicago. A long flight was made pleasant by the professionalism of the flight-staff and the meals, beverages, and movies we had on the plane. Please note that our original flight was cancelled by the airline, and we got a non-stop flight in its place--which was even better--so we did not make any stop at Madrid, Spain. The non-stop was through British Airways, but we actually traveled via an American Airlines flight. The experience was really terrific!"
Cons: "Same issue: cannot choose the seat in advance or check in."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to air traffic"
Pros: "A nice surprise for the kids. Movies are all free in any class of seat. current blockbusters are in the choices. The children's choices were great as well. A dinner was included again for every class of service."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Ease of location of airport"
Pros: "I got to Madrid safely"
Cons: "The crew on this flight were indinfirent towards passenger especially the male crew members. When I asked help for my little bag of souvenirs it was thrown with disregard."
Pros: "Modern plane, fast boarding and decent service. Very quick flight to Madrid."
Cons: "The food was mediocre and not that much. The seats aren't comfortable for sleeping. Iberia lost my luggage on the connecting flight I had right after."
Pros: "American Airlines ground and flight crew were professional and polite. Seating was excellent. Plane was very clean and well kept. Selection of entertainment was superb."
Cons: "Lighting was on for the entire night flight."

One of our carry-on bags was too big, so they charged us 60 euros to check it. Second Carry-on bag fit in the specified box at check-in, so we were let go through security with it. Then at the gate we were asked again and it was deemed NOT to fit. So I had to pay 70 (!) euros on top of the 20 euros for ‘priority boarding’, which included said carry-on bag. It would have easily fit in the overhead compartment. Just not right and way more expensive than other airlines. Paid more for luggage than the actual ticket. To top it off, they do not accommodate passengers to get seats together (which in time of covid should be encouraged) without a surcharge. But when we got to our seats, they did not hesitate to ask us to accommodate other people that wanted to sit together. We refused. Unacceptable. Never will we travel on Ryan air again.

Cons: "Boarding was a caos, I guess is Italian style"
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable... have to pay everything including water."
Pros: "British Airlines is a great airline company"
Pros: "Crew/ fast flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "cheap?"
Cons: "the fare and baggage rule become complicated."
Cons: "This policy of charging everything really bothers."

Cons: "Should be more information instead of waiting around airport They must know when a planes going to be late"
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: "On time departure and arrival Cheap low fares Effiencent helpful staff"
Cons: "Expensive water on board"
Cons: "The airline app did not enable us to download our boarding passes as non-EU citizens and the check-in desk refused to issue paper boarding passes. We had to wait to the last minute at the gate for the agent to write up a boarding pass by hand. Ridiculous."
Pros: "The most relaxed Ryanair flight I have ever been on"
Pros: "Boarding and flying time very good"
Cons: "Noisy passengers (stag party and 40birthday)"
Pros: "Well to get in the plane we were waiting almost 1 hour, and now that am writting you waiting again 1 hour for the baggage . I will never again flight with this company never again"
Pros: "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: "Managed to sleep most of the way so the journey went very quickly"
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: "Great Flight. Great Staff"
Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "The checked baggage fee is way too expensive."
Cons: "delayed by an hour which we only found out about when we went to the gate."
Pros: "If you like be herded around like cattle, and having no apology even when your flight is late, then you've come to the right place."
Cons: "Late flight. Family scattered around cabin in different seats. Completely unnecessary."
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"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, boarding didn't have a good organisation, crew wasn't friendly."
Cons: "Was put in standby and had tons of issues with security. Worst experience of my life. I am very upset"
Pros: "Staff approacable."
Cons: "There was no water in the toilet.Aircondition not working well.Have to travel by bus to get into the plane.Delayed flight."
Pros: "Good experience"
Pros: "Nice crew, good care of passengers, flight on time, new and comfortable planes"
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: "Worst experience. Multiple charges. Made it one of the most expensive trips. Terrible!"
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)"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Last time we flew Ryanair, we did not check-in ahead of time, so we had to pay 53 Euros at the airport. We learned our lesson, so for this flight we checked in ahead of time and had our boarding passes ready on our mobile devices. When we arrived at the airport, we were told we needed a printed ticked so they could stamp it that they had checked our passport. It would be 53 Euros for them to print the ticket. The lady at the ticket counter directed us to the business center to print, but the Ryanair website wasn't working. I eventually printed a poor quality screenshot and hoped for the best. The lady stamped when she checked my passport. Nobody ever checked the stamped ticket beyond that point. What a waste. Ryanair is cheap, of course I'll fly with them again the next time I'm in Europe. My advice to travelers is to do your research and know all the loop holes they use to make money off of you."
Cons: "we didn't know we had to print our tickets and they charged us a big fee to print our own boarding passes at the airport"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours"
Pros: "It was cheap, quick and easy"
Cons: "The rules around baggage, priority boarding and purchasing seats is not very clear"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "*Extreme delay: - Our flight was supposed to take off at 5:35pm but was delayed to 12:10am due to technical issues. - There was a plane in RAK that could've have been used, but Ryan Air decided to use it for the flight to Paris instead despite the fact our flight was earlier. *Terrible customer service: - No one answered the phone, and we could only chat with them online. - We had a connecting flight out of MAD to JFK which we were nervous about missing, and was hoping customer service could help us with an alternative options to get to MAD. - Instead, the only answer they could give me was to take the RAK > MAD flight 2 days later and that was our only option. They did not seem to listen and understand our issue. *Poor and inconsistent communication: - RA sent out emails saying check-in would close 1 hour before our flight, but when we arrived at the airport, the screens displayed check-in to close 40min before scheduled departure. - After the delay, emails were sent to call customer service, but when you dialed the number they provided, you get a message saying their offices were closed."
Cons: "They say that one carry on free but they should allow standard size which other airlines allows. So we have to buy new carry on for ryan air!! then don't call it free. It is really hassle travelling in Ryan air for inside flights when you have already came from US to Europe. you need to keep your luggage in storage or pay heft money at Ryan air... They don't even give free water! I agree The money you save on a Ryanair flight is not worth the absolute hassle they put you through, especially considering that you're liable to pay the difference in fees anyway."
Pros: "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"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than six hours and they never offer me an alternative solution and I lost my connection flight. The worst experience ever."
Pros: "Boarding moved smoothly. Paid for priority...it was worth it!!"
Cons: "Awful Service"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "I got wet standing on tarmac in rain"
Pros: "Seats don't"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that they charged me over €16 to print my boarding pass at the check in counter was absurd. Not only did I have to pay this ridiculous fee but I had to go to a separate counter to wait in another line to make the payment. While I understand fees for "additional" services, charging for a boarding pass is beyond preposterous."
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"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy but otherwise fine"
