You have to pay for food; disembarking was super long
Aircraft was late, then back to on time, then late again. Food is just a cereal bar and water. For 200 euros.
Pros: "We were able to leave the country quickly."
Cons: "It was freezing on the plane."
Cons: "1 hour delay in departure from Lisbon"
Cons: "A crew member fell ill before take off so we had to taxi back to the terminal - and extra 1.5 hours !"
Pros: "Everything was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing except the rude passagers. But that is out of the hands of the airline.."
Pros: "Crew was great and movie selection was good. And the food was also good"
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "The crew were amazing and attentive"
Cons: "nothing that i can think of"
Cons: "Received a text that changed the flight departure to a later time. Missed the flight. Cost me baanaadditional"
Pros: "3 food servings, ice cream, kids package"
Cons: "Old screens, no usb chargers, old plane."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew were professional and courteous. Seats were fairly comfortable ( though one was broken)."
Cons: "Could have been a bit more room - was slightly squashed. Disappointed to have to pay for tea. Porridge from M&S on flight was horrible."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Flight took off on time and landed ahead of schedule. Exactly right for a short no frills flight."
Pros: "Comfortable, good service and on time"
Cons: "It was extremely cold on the flight. I asked two different crew members to please turn the A/C down and nothing. I had 3 sweaters on and double socks, two blankets and it was still cold!! The worst"
Cons: "Staff and crew were courteous and helpful. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was new and very comfortable. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants had to serve food/drinks, which they did the entire flight (literally, drink service took 2 hours). People got drunk and super loud. We were late leaving London which isn’t an issue except the people at the BA desk were the least helpful. We found out more from the pilots than anyone in the airport."
Pros: "A great flight Thank you"
Pros: "There was a good selection of very different movies to watch. I found four that I wanted to see."
Cons: "There were not enough chairs in the waiting area. There was a long wait, first, just to get on the plane, then, instead of letting us stay in the waiting area, we were all seated, and left waiting for at least an hour, most of that time without explanation, sitting in a stifling plane at the gate, without being allowed to get up and move around. Also, the ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the main meal was way out of kilter. I don't want rice + potatoes + bread + crackers all in one meal, with zero vegetables. The tiny piece of cheese helped."
Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."
Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Cons: "BA/KAYAK lost my seat booking details, so I had to pay again. Plane was 3 hours late leaving."
Pros: "The best flight that I have had in my life. Never been a very good traveler going on long distances. Peter came it was great. The number of times there were these snacks and meals offered along with coming up and down the isles with extra cups of juice was really nice. I was fortunate enough To have purchased and reserved in advance and emergency exit I’ll seat which gave me the room that I needed because of my length."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been offered a glass of water."
Pros: "The crews were good and the que to board the flight was well organized."
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs with thin backing that allowed me to feel everything the person behind me was doing. The entertainment screens were not very clear."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, pleasant flight attendants."
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm through most of the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. On time departure"
Cons: "Could not check in online or via app due to system issues"
Pros: "The stewardesses were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The actual food etc offered on board is horrible.BA does not know where to cut more in their services. They offer you a drink once the whole flight! Washington to London. Supper was half burned lasagna; you’d think they cannot go lower than that. Wait for your breakfast: a cereal bar. Very classy! We had tail wind so we made good time on the flight only to have to circle London around for 30 minuets. This would not have been a problem, however there was such turbulence that you could hear people throwing up! Great end to a transatlantic flight! I barely made it through it myself."
Pros: "20 minutes late taking off and made up a few minutes. They had run out of sandwiches that we liked so we didn't bother with buying food all in all I'm so food so so trip"
Pros: "Simple no drama very professional, Good service, Food to suit almost every flavour and preference . Entertainiment is a 3 star cause There’s nothing there to be offered apart from newspaper and A magazine."
Cons: "Child sitting behind me kept dropping the table and pushing it back up"
Cons: "Seat comfort in Business Class worse than low cost airlines Crew rude and aloft Food terrible"
Cons: "Couldn't take the flight because I was not allowed to check a bag. No mention of this was made when I booked."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Not able to walk about the plane becuase of configuration"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Indifferent inflight service is probably a compliment. The worst insult was to the 120 passengers whose flight to Heathrow was cancelled. They waited hours for the flight to Gatwick. On arrival BA announced that the buses that were promised by ground staff in Venice had not been arranged because BA didn't have the resources at hand. Useless as usual!"
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats were gorgeous!"
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Cons: "The boarding could be more organized. In New York they boarded the first class ok but the others they just told everyone to come up. W it was not done row by row. The breakfast coming back was horrible. Other than that great."
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Comfortable equipment, nice food offered. Generally felt the entire BA team had a great attitude which makes a world of difference regarding the experience."
Pros: "Bording was quick"
Cons: "Crew was serious, absolutely not happy to smile Genuine smile is really appreciated whenmeeting custimers. Food trolley/ drinks came to customers and before we could react it was gone. When we asked them back they were not very happy looking . Seats we not comfortable."
Pros: "Liked the private bin to hold personal belongings in."
Cons: "Paid $81 used for a twin seat and they assigned the second seat to another traveler without refunding my $81 dollars. The passenger was over 6ft and large taking up a large amount of space."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked!"
Cons: "I couldn't do online check in and was at the airport 2 hours before the flight but they said they cannot give me a seat number and waited there for 25 min to get a seat number. The seats were really uncomfortable (compared to airlines as Turkish airlines and American Airways).The flight attendants were not there to make your flight better, one of them was sulking and was afraid to smile to you but when he was with other crew was able to laugh! Also food was really bad!"
Pros: "Good and on time flight. Loved the information given by all crews."
Cons: "My bags arrived a day later on 25th night which caused alot of inconviniency because i had to travel back to the Airport the following day for my cloths. The baggage handlers opened my bags and removed some items which is unacceptable . Stressed still about that"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient and caring. A comfortable experience at a very low price."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good."
Cons: "Abysmal leg room."
Cons: "Requested a Kosher meal through the British Airways reservation directly, was not provided with such."
Cons: "I counted on the airline to scedule enough time on the layover in London. We had a delay and then we had to run to plane. And the luggage made it to us two days later."
Pros: "Service flight crw"
Cons: "Terribly crowded"
We were sent to Malaga instead of Granada due to weather. Although we were bussed to Granada, arriving 4 hours later, there was no further assistance or information from a representative. More communication would have been helpful and appreciated.
Pros: "One of the crew member was really rude, she made a mistake went off on me and didn’t even apologize, she act like nothing happened, I tried reaching out to the airline and they never got back to me"
Pros: "The crew seemed very nice."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time."
Cons: "Luggage delivery in Porto was slow"
Pros: "Nothing on the ground. Prior to boarding there was chaos among the crew members and the public. The flight was as usual with Vueling delayed; for technical reasons. However no one knew what was happening. No crew member gave a simple explanation of what was happening. Order was not maintsined"
Cons: "Everything, like simply explaining to the long waiting passengers what was going on. But Vueling is 90 pc late. They treat passengers as if they could not care less because they are working unhappily We can simply compare with other airlines. Vueling gets first price as worse airline I know."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and everything was on time"
Cons: "they don't provide even water for the passengers"
Cons: "We have a 5 hours delay inside the plane. The crew has to been change and the second crew is the worst crew in all my flights The captain also was change after 4 hours of delay, and is the worst captain, nothing polite"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late with no announcements made in the terminal"
Cons: "There was a long delay, longer than the flight itself. In a rush to catch up (or go home) they did not clean the plane before boarding, not even superficially."
Pros: "Short flying time"
Cons: "Communication with flight delay"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. And the departure time kept changing. To the point that we had to run for the flight"

Cons: "Could not check luggage online so had to pay exhorbitant fee at airport. Boarding at gate was totally disorganized and the attendents didn’t seem to care"
Cons: "very easy checkibg, friendly at airport, snd same day reminder"
Cons: "Seats are like deck chairs with no leg room"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Barcelona"
Cons: "Extremely poor service by the cabin crew. They were extremely lethargic and slow with service. So much so that numerous rows of seats with young families were never served. No announcement or apology, they just stopped serving as they needed to prepare to land. They knew from the start how long they would have to serve drinks/snacks but didn’t care and definitely did not go out of their way to ensure everyone would be served. The worst service or total lack of that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "Rude attendant at the gate"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Vueling—couldn’t figure out how to have us pay extra money for overweight bags It took us almost an hour to get thru the line bc our bags were too heavy, then the agent couldn’t figure out how to charge us for the extra $, so after 15 min, they just let us go without paying Then, it too forever to get thru security THEN, our flight was delayed, but they still told us to go to the gate and board, even tho there was no crew yet And then, we had to go down 2 flights of steps to take a bus to the plane and then take a flight of steps up to the plane. Then, our seats were dirty with cups and garbage Then the captain said we needed to refuel. Said it would take 5 more minutes but it was more like 25"
Pros: "I presume that because I'm old they treated me special even though I didn't request any special help."
Cons: "I can't even begin to describe the horrendous experience..."
Pros: "New plane, comfortable seat and helpful crew"
Cons: "Disembarking in Barcelona very disorganised"
Pros: "Good flight on time so no complaints"
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage. I called continuously and they kept telling me that it was on its way, but it never arrived! I finally received it 2 days later."
Cons: "Boarding was messed up. Paying for priority boarding then having the gate open the boarding area to all passengers created some heated words, plus people pushing ahead for boarding."
Pros: "Friendly, pleasant and helpful staff on board"
Cons: "The delayed boarding of the flight due to the delayed arrival of our aircraft into Dublin. The 15 Minutes of silence and not knowing what was going on, or whether we were or weren’t going to eventually be landing in Barcelona or diverted elsewhere, after the aircraft had suddenly climbed very steeply away from Barcelona as we were almost about to land on the first approach to BCN."
Cons: "The flight was unable to take off on time, which they did not communicate until after boarding. All of the passengers had to sit on the plane on the tarmac and wait an hour until we were able to take off."
Pros: "Spacious, punctual, friendly"
Pros: "Flight not shown delayed at airport. Eventually left an hour late. No information or apology at boarding gate. Staff went and hid so the desk was empty. No apology or explanation on board either. Flight got us from A to Be but with zero grace or service. As a first experience this was bad."
Cons: "Zero service"
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "A bit cramped in seating"
Pros: "Didn't experience anything spectacular."
Cons: "The delay of flight was unbelievable."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good airplane. 1stars for food/entertainment since not applicable an option (I had neither) Good image-good feeling"
Cons: "Seating cramped for longer legged folk"
Pros: "Everything , we loved !! The crew was amazing, always eager to serve and help, the food was good and the timing was perfect!!! :)"
Cons: "Dely and they lost my bags"
Pros: "The onboard food for purchase has lots of good selections They have a good price."
Cons: "The way they board. They have one big long line. Then they heard you down stairs and in to a bus and then you have to board by stairs again. Have they heard of jet ways. The space between seats is minimal."
Cons: "The most horrible experience Iv'e ever had with flights and airline! The staff lied to us and wanted to keep us in Granada - they lied and said that our flight to Tel-Aviv from Barcelona was cancelled and that we need to stay another night in Granada and fly the next day. After we insisted on flying to Barcelone anyway (although they said they would not take care of us and all hotels in the city are full because of the weather conditions [which was a lie - it's summer and the weather was fine]). When we got to Barcelone we saw that our flight to Tel-Aviv was not cancelled! We only had 30 min because the previous flight was delayed in 2 hours so we ran and went on the plane. Of course our luggage did not arrive...."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my carryon bag because it was over 3 kg. So I checked in my baggage two full hours before departure and the layover was three and half hours. There should be no reason why my bag didn't make it on the plane and yet it did not make it on."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Plane never left. Bused us to Bilbao, missed our flight to Porto. Have to wait in Barcelona for hours. Flying us to Vigo, Spain then ground transportation to Porto., 11 hours later."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable, flight attendants friendly and professional. Departures and arrivals on time!"
Cons: "Cattle car boarding procedures were dehumanizing. Also, don't forget a book if you expect entertainment."
Cons: "Long check in line/cue and then we had to go to another line to pay for our bags"
Pros: "that it wasn't a long flight"
Cons: "the crew weren't very friendly, from checking in to landing. too stressed out I think. I wasn't made to feel like I wanted to have a return booking. Also there was pressure to add extras that I didn't want. I resisted but when I've paid for something I don't expect to be coerced into paying more for something I didn't need. For example seat selection."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "No back steps when landed To long to disembark"
Cons: "Airport security"
Cons: "Should be more information instead of waiting around airport They must know when a planes going to be late"
Cons: "Lack of comunicoation and lack of services. Probably it was a bit cheaper than the competitors. But I made me think twice for next time Ryanair cross my way."
Cons: "Terrible time checking in on line .Finally got some help but was told if I did not check in on line it would cost me another 55euros. :0("
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: "We booked our daughter priority so she was entitled to bring a hand carry on board. When she got the airport they insisted that she had to put her hand carry in the hold despite it having her passport in it!! The Captain very kindly helped her retrieve it from the hold at the end of the flight but why did she ever have to put it in there when she was priority and we paid for it?"
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."
Cons: "you sent the us the wrong us the bookings the wrong way round malaga to newcastle 10th of march instead of the other way rounding the same on the return flight newcastle to malaga 17th march .hence had to rebook costing us a fortune.!!!"
Pros: "The most relaxed Ryanair flight I have ever been on"
Pros: "Staff good and flight on time"
Cons: "Cost of on board services"
Pros: "Boarding and flying time very good"
Cons: "Noisy passengers (stag party and 40birthday)"
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"
Cons: "I was trying to check in in the past 24 hours. The system wouldn’t allow me and I ended up paying 50 Euros extra only to check in what I had already paid for in full in the first plCe. Then, just to top off the wonderful morning - I got an agent whose attitude was extremely rude and poor to inform me correctly what was the next steps and procedure. Finally, both my hand bags carry on get checked in and now I am stuck at the airport waiting for two little bags that could’ve easily got on top of my compartment where I was."
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: "That there was a possibility the plane crashed, so my flight would end earlier."
Pros: "Great Flight. Great Staff"
Cons: "The Ryan Air staff were ignorant and complained when asked any questions."
Pros: "easy to check in with self-service check in and bag drop"
Cons: "seats are not particularly comfortable"
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: "The boarding was efficient flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are not comfortable. I was in a bus at the back and when it arrived at the demarcation door, the driver didn't open all the 3 doors! He only opened the front door beside himself so everyone had to exit by that door."
Cons: "Never got a heads up for boarding pass and baggage. I now know to pay $100.00 more when dealing with your competitors."
Pros: "Everything was acceptable apart from their petty ploy to split couples up"
Cons: "Because we don't want to pay extra for seating we don't check in until 4 days before the flight. Usually this is not a problem but on this flight they split us up, one at the front & one at the rear, then they ask if we want to pay extra to sit together. This is a very petty ploy to get extra money. It doesn't work !! The passengers just swop when on the plane"
Pros: "Crew when asked was very helpful and polite. They were definitely working the entire flight to assist people."
Cons: "Crew took about the entire flight to handle the food and drinks, coming from both ends. This caused a block to the bathrooms and people waiting long periods and finally just stuffing in all over the place to get passed the carts. Expensive flight for us since we had to buy the same day. While most of the security attendants were great, I did have to wait a very long time to get a pat down I requested rather than go through the scanner (required to be in a separate room) that was 95% the same as the one they were giving everyone after they came through the scanner, with the only difference being a hand and belt line swipe and paperwork. I have had this same procedure done in three airports prior on this trip and all were more aggressive/thorough and did not require a separate room and extreme wait. Though again, all the female staff were great."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Cons: "The fact that I couldn't go"
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)"
Pros: "In flight experience was great."
Cons: "First time flying RyanAir and didn't checkin before arriving at airport. We're treated extremely rudely and charged Euro 100. Had priority boarding but boarding was horrible."
Pros: "Priority boarding that I paid for. Security Fast Track that I paid for."
Cons: "Interminable lines to simply drop bags with pre-paid bags and boarding passes printed at home -- It took an hour! Check-in staff seemingly oblivious to what is happening around them. About the most cramped seats on any airline I've taken (and I've flown in virtually all parts of the world, and I'm small). Constant harangue over the PA from in-flight staff trying to sell things, even lottery tickets."
Pros: "Price was ok if you don't have to check in luggage."
Cons: "Had to check on line to avoid a check in fee !!! Seats are crammed, thank God it was a short flight. Long line to check bags & to board"
Pros: "The air crew were excellent"
Cons: "Communications around boarding and gates was chaotic and our take off was delayed for over an hour. Staff were rude and unhelpful. They seemed confused themselves and found it difficult to communicate anything helpful to passengers"
Cons: "They took my cabin luggage to the cargo even though it is the right size due to no more space in over head compartment and I believe if they where strict about the size with the All Pax and only allowed one price each in the hand the compartments would have been sufficient. You need to make sure to ask pax to be at check in desk 2 hrs before dept during peak periods due to security takes longer time make the story short I was happy with the above all standards Abdullah Benafif."
Pros: "Boarding was ridiculous from both ends of plane with people from back end squeezing past people from front end to find their seats. They list my checked backpack on a flight from Amsterdam to Spain. It took 5 days to get it back. Crazy!"
Cons: "Everyone had backpacks that got checked for free. Why did I pay to check my luggage? Stupid."
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Pros: "But not in a great way! Seat was pretty comfortable. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a loud booze cruise flight from Dublin to Malaga. Very happy Irish holiday makers. it was loud but the passengers mostly were good sorts. The flight attendants were pretty rude--never excusing themselves or apologizing for pushing past people. The toilet in the front was disgusting. NO HaNDSOAP. Told attendant--no soap, she said. Very nasty situation. i think it will be my only Ryanair trip."
Cons: "The priority boarding line needs to be separated from the regular boarding. There is a rush toward the gate when it ipens"
Cons: "They tell you to check in online, it is not possible, then they charge you an extra €45 at the airport. Second time it has happened, it's a scam. Last time I fly Ryanair."
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: "I got wet standing on tarmac in rain"
Pros: "On time, great price."
Cons: "Cold breeze when I can out of the Terminal building!"
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour"
Pros: "We had a very good and comfortable flight and were well looked after by the cabin crew,will be using company again well done."
Pros: "Ryan Air is the worst airline. They rip off unassuming people by exorbitant charges at the airport."
Cons: "The customer service is nonexistent and the companies policies ar designed to take advantage of customers."
Pros: "This company employs several rude employees which is unbelievable"
Cons: "It is unbelievable all of the "additional" fees that they conveniently forget to mention"
Cons: "the flight seemed full and therefore, since it was very much delayed, the ground crew set about getting people to check in their carry on bags. I'm not sure why we were chosen, since we were not at the end of the line, and some in front of us and behind us were not asked to check their bags (which were actually larger than ours). In he plane we were unhappy to realize that there was enough space overhead for our bags. Had to wait an extra 20-25 minutes in London after and already very late flight. So: not the best."
