Pros: "It was a quick, short flight."

Cons: "Shuttle transfers... I prefer direct to plane boarding."
Pros: "Crew outstanding"

Pros: "That it only lasted 50 mins"
Cons: "Packed with low class beer drinking plebes."
Pros: "Flew business class for the first time with Aer Lingus. The crew are friendly and helpful. The food on board was top quality."
Cons: "The lie flat seats in business class are not very comfortable. Especially in the straight up position. The entertainment system is pretty bad and the choice of movies, tv etc is very poor. The complimentary WiFi only worked occasionally. Can not understand how Aer Lingus claim to be a 4* airline."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Long distance to boarding gate vis bus and walk. Late taking off so late arriving"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Delayed Dublin to Newcastle flight"

Cons: "Missing connecting flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."
Pros: "the immigration in Dublin and the connection services in Dublin"
Cons: "I booked extra space seats and then they changed the plane and moved us in regular seats. We talked to a person from Air Lingus and he said it happens often but there's nothing to do. on board, the head sets are very old and you could only hear from one ear using the head set provided by Air Lingus. in 2018 ?! seriously !?"
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Not enough legroom I felt like a sardine"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old aircraft. Single aisle narrrow bodied"
Cons: "Why is it not possible to print a boarding pass from a phone? This cannot be an uncommon activity."
Pros: "Your staff are very friendly. But you probably need more staff to help people with self check in as there were a few elderly people standing around not knowing how to use the self check in ."
Cons: "Was not happy about paying extra for my luggage . At the price I paid for my flight I would have expected a luggage allowance of one check in bag."
Pros: "Friendly staff with excellent humour, and an efficiently short flight time."
Pros: "Overall very. I was there when the check station was down caused delays. But staff were very helpful."
Cons: "Getting through security check very slow. Not sure what the answer is but need to be looked urgently. Otherwise I enjoyed everything.. P.kehoe..sunnybank Farm.. Portersize.. Grange con.. Co. Kildare"
Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"
Pros: "Luggage was couriered and arrived 9 hours later."
Cons: "That our luggage wasn't on the flight and we only realised after waiting/looking for over half an hour. Then had to do the missing report, all after a long flight. Couldn't someone in Dublin have rung and warned us?"
Pros: "The flight was nearly empty. Never had that silent, and peaceful flight. Everyone found there space and fell asleep."
Cons: "Too cold"
Pros: "I liked doing immigration in Dublin rather than Chicago, even though the process was lengthy. We couldn't understand why, having done the automated system, the process was virtually repeated at the immigration desk. Queues were very long."
Cons: "As above plus my husband's seat arm was broken. The inflight entertainment system was a joke. Back of seat screens fitted but not working. Very distant ceiling screens and only one working before the whole system failed. Not acceptable on a long flight."
Pros: "Crew polite. Seats comfy."
Cons: "One person checking boarding cards at gate led to a ridiculously long queue for a nearly full flight and made it late getting us all on the plane and passengers were getting annoyed. Then whatever machinery Aer Lingus use to push the plane back from the gate actually got stuck on the plane cone leading to another delay. Knock on was we were made to wait for a take off slot and made to wait for a landing slot at Heathrow so late arriving."
Pros: "Reilly dolly"
Cons: "The other trolley dolly"
Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"

Cons: "Plane was full of noisy school rugby children"
Pros: "Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat by door very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable Clean"
Cons: "Food/drinks a little expensive"
Got to the airport 2.5 hours before the flight but had to queue so long for the compulsory bag drop that we had to run for the gate. Really unpleasant experience.
Cons: "Kayak sucks. I chose to buy ticket w kayak and took me to vayama (another horrible site). The ticket they sold me, which was not cheap, didn’t let me check in online and didn’t say that I was gonna have to pay 200 euros at airport to check in 2 bags!!!! A disaster everything."
Cons: "A mechanical malfuntion caused our takeoff to be over 2 3/4 hours late. I had a scheduled 4 hour layover which wasn't enough and missed my USA connection. Had to pay another $2500 x 2 for return flight to make a wedding Same happened on arrival. 2hr delay Going back in 2 weeks. Trying Europa Air"
Cons: "Make sure you have a ticket with a selected seat or else they will not let you board, they overbook flights very often!"
Cons: "My passport was stolen and the airline couldn’t help me at all as far as reimbursement or travel voucher. It was just a tough situation."
Cons: "The booking did not include my luggage despite buying the most expensive version of the fare. When I spoke to customer service, the could do nothing. I filed a complaint and will seek recompense further up."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and styled with poise."
Cons: "Seat recline"
Cons: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Leg room. Better maintenance of plane. Timekeeping."
Pros: "Clean, refurbished aircraft."
Cons: "Ground crew opened my checked in bag and stole a $800.00 watch. As a seasoned traveler, I know you should never carry valuables in your checked in luggage. However, this was never the intention, I had planned to take my small bag with me but last minute Vueling offered to check it in for free, since the flight was full. I should have never agreed."
Cons: "When we got to the airport, the gate info wasn’t on the screen. We found a seat and waited until the time it said the info would be available. When the info was available, it said the gate was closing in 10 minutes. You have to pay for everything. I ordered a meal, but there must have been a language barrier because the stewardess sold me a meal and extra sandwich, when I only wanted one. The seats don’t recline."
Pros: "Short flight and pilot seemed very comfortable during turbulence"
Cons: "Apparently congestion at Barcelona was the reason. The gate crew are clueless and not helpful. I was struggling to understand what was going on. Kayak was showing delayed flight and neither crew or veuling website was getting updated.."
Pros: "Straightforward flight. I feel like I would fly with vueling again but from a different airport."
Cons: "It was delayed by 30/40 minutes and the price was quite expensive (but that was probably my fault)"
Pros: "The flight was OK"
Cons: "It was delayed almost one hour."
Pros: "The flight actually got me to my destination"
Cons: "I asked for priority boarding at the counter since I’m pregnant which they agreed to. They advised me to wait for the priority announcement to board first. That did not happen. They simply let everyone on at once causing a stampede. Flight was delayed. Flight had no AC until almost take off. Smallest amount of legroom I’ve ever had in my life."
Cons: "Flights notoriously late Staff useless Service inexistant No information provided Avoid Vueling"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. My flight was cancelled and I want to be reimbursed"
Cons: "How can I be reimbursed. The way we were treated is a shame"
Cons: "Awful. Didn’t make it. Vueling was terrible at fixing the problem. Stranding is in Barcelona airport"
Pros: "Nothing.... Very poor. Generally Vueling has a poor image but I took a chance nothing has changed"
Cons: "On board the plane I was told you have to pay for all the food drinks quite abruptly maybe because I had shorts on and a tee shirt the lady in question thought I did not have much money.....Never go by how somebody is dressed that's my advice to your airline staff...."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else. This was the worst plane experience ever. The flight was super super delayed (as were several other Vueling flights) and we stood in the bag drop line for over 2 hours because there was no system and everyone was confused. Then when we finally got through they updated the flight status every 10 min confusing everyone cause the time kept changing and no one knew what was going on. Then they finally posted the gate and we had to run to the other side of the airport and then they delayed the flight again so it was over 3 1/2 hours delayed In the end. Then boarding was a mess and the plane itself was pitiful for how expensive that flight was. This is never going to be a company of choice for me. Definitely a last resort."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and decent legroom in the cabin."
Cons: "Slight delay on departure but not really an issue. Bit of a long wait for baggage in Barcelona on arrival but don’t think it’s Vuelings fault."
Pros: "Aircraft cabin comfornand cleanliness"
Cons: "The whole booking experience and costs incurred in our 4PAX booking. Should cost €350 and went to almost €800 when we changed start of trip by one day even though we booked weeks in advance."
Pros: "I presume that because I'm old they treated me special even though I didn't request any special help."
Pros: "Cabin crew was cheerful and helpful. Got excellent seats at last minute."
Cons: "Late boarding due to some crew late."
Cons: "No bags"
Pros: "Crew. Extra leg room on first leg."
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "Boarding via bus. I purchased priority ticket for priority boarding but in end priority was only from checkin to bus. Fortunately there were not so many passengers. it should be indicated in the flight information whether boarding is via bus or bridge."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Extremely crowded"
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."
Pros: "Ryanair, easyjet et al are the big fish in this pond, but the two times I've flown with vueling has been better than all my experiences with the others. Nice to see an airline whose staff looks like it actualy cares about customer service. Thanks a lot!"
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: "50 mins delayed with no apology."
Pros: "Nothing good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which meant I missed the event I was travelling for. No help from airline or any expression of sympathy for the situation, very awkward to deal with and no flexibility, no offer of refund or change of flight as no other was available with the airline, wouldn't book again"
Pros: "Selph check"
Cons: "No clear signage at aireport barcelona"
Cons: "First of all we were delayed an hour with no explanation or apology, the service was poor at best, and after all the trouble they managed to lose my bag as well . Two thumbs DOWN"
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."
Pros: "Cheap, fast, reliable"
Cons: "Basic services"
Cons: "seats were really tight with little leg room. A long walk from security to the gate"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "You had to pay fo water..."
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."
Cons: "The window seat had no shade and it leaked all over my new jacket . Very disappointed ."
Cons: "Chairs are uncomfortable It was hot during the flight"
Pros: "Efficient, accurate, the luggage arrived intact, the planes are clean and comfortable, the staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing is served on the plane (without payment). It could be nice if they would serve water to the passengers, as other low-cost companies do."
Cons: "Flying with another airline which I will."
Pros: "Decent enough flight, seats comfortable enough for short haul wouldn’t want to go long haul on the same seats, good selection of onboard snacks"
Cons: "Flight was half hour late, priority seats should be reserved for the first seats on the plane rather than scattered all over the plane, suitcases shouldnt be allowed on board they take up too much space for anyone else and slow down the boarding of the plane as people attempt to haul them up the stairs, some staff could be more polite and less abrupt and some could attempt to speak louder and clearer"
Pros: "On time, quick boarding. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No air bridges"
Cons: "Airport security"
Pros: "Flight was usual"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for about 15mins but the pilot made up for it."
Pros: "I liked that I didn't feel squashed and this is about it."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that our flight was delayed and we weren't notified about it. I disliked that we got told there was a problem with the engine but they didn't allow us to either get off the plane or change plans we just sat there as they ran test after test. Asking us to sit down for them to see if the engine is working okay. They asked a member of the public who was sat by the wing to keep an ear out for any funny noises. We stayed on the runway for an hour and a half after it was already delayed. Once we set off in fear that the engine might fail again Ryanair didn't even off us a free glass of water to show appreciation for peoples tolerance. It honestly isn't worth the money you save."
Pros: "the tickets were very cheap"
Cons: "the departure was dine with about 1 hour delay"
Pros: "Short and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Setting off time delayed by 40 minutes"
Pros: "Off ons time no extras got here quick all I want"

Pros: "Ryan Air 5.5 hrs Flight Delay from Glasgow, Scotland to Dublin, Ireland (Draft 2.1) Our flight from Glasgow, Scotland to Dublin Ireland on September 22nd with Ryan Air was delayed for 5.5 hrs (165 minutes) for unexplained reasons. We were supposed to depart at 3:25 pm and we actually departed at 8:55 pm when the plane actually began to move from the terminal to the runway. Over the ensuring 5.5 hr. delay there was no plausible reason given by gate staff or the bag check-in staff or the electronic flight board of daily departures in the Glasgow airport. Here is what we heard from all 3 communication sources stated in the previous sentence: • Seven (7) actual time delays of actual flight departure times (electronic flight board) ranging from: 3:25 pm, 4;30 pm; to be scheduled; moved to 5:15 pm; 6:30 pm; 8:00 pm; 9:00 pm; check with the gate. • Waiting for a plane to arrive......... • We have no idea...... • Waiting for a plane and a crew to arrive.... • Corporate is working on finding an available plane...... • I don't know....we will post the details when they are known to us..... The Scottish Times Newspaper (Sept. 21 or 22), reported that Ryan Air had allowed too many pilots to go on vacation at the same time which had made the entire flight schedule prone to long flight delays and numerous flight cancellations. What was reported on the various UK news shows was very different. Their were serious labor issues between Ryan Air's pilots and management, particularly Dennis O'Leary the CEO, over work conditions including pay and job performance. Those of us who read local UK newspapers had an inkling that the pot was boiling. However, as the actual departure delay went beyond the scheduled 3:23 pm, passengers were uneasy about our hotel rooms in our destination cities still being held and whether any drop-off family members should go home or be available if the flight was ultimately cancelled. What made it worse was Ryan Air realized that they were in violation of the European Union flight delay rule so they passed out FLIGHT DELAY POLICY to those waiting in line. The gate crew and the check-in folks outside security told us about having to provide all passengers two (2) free phone calls except that this would mean leaving security at the expected gate and going back to the Ryan Air check-in counter and back through security. A very arduous process one more time. Ryan Air has very arcane booking rules so if I change my checked baggage to a larger size, my only option was to add an additional piece of luggage at a very stiff cost. In our opinion, Ryan Air is a very poorly managed airline and the most customer-combative airline we have ever encountered in our many flights throughout the UK and Europe. Without hesitation, we would not recommend Ryan Air under any circumstances and would be willing to pay more with other carriers who take better care of their customers. [Customer names withheld for privacy reasons - 9/26/2017.]"
Cons: "I felt it ironic that our two smallish rolling duffel bags were not the right parameters to take on board, and just enough over the weight limit to rack up bag charges of about 35 E ea, ea way between Dublin and Glasgow, so actually our luggage charge is more than our set of tickets for this particular trip. No wonder the owner's a billionaire--however, on the positive side, the pilot landed "like butter" in Glasgow AND we heard that the Ryanair owner actually does pay millions in taxes for the good of Ireland. (Sigh...)"
Pros: "Staff at Dublin and on board very helpful we were traveling with a two year old and they were great help. Flight good and arrived on time all round good experience"
Pros: "Short flighy"

Pros: "Take off delayed due to some technical issue, but still landed on time, very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendents were a little tough"
Pros: "It was a short flight and got me to where I needed to go."
Cons: "Seats too small. They broke my suitcase. I made sure the extension handle was down when I checked it. When I got it back, the handle was up and bent so it couldn't be put back down. A kind man on the bus was able to straighten it, but it still doesn't work right."
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Flight crew was very professional and dressed well. My flight from Dublin to Glasgow was under 40 minutes and I was really impressed."
Cons: "Not a thing. Everything was smooth"
Pros: "Flight went to plan, no problems boarding and on time."

Cons: "Everything is boor"
Pros: "no delayed, staff helpful"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "My children and I got seats together even though I didn't pre book."
Cons: "There would've been a £60 charge to prebook our seats together. I think this is excessive for suck a short flight."
Pros: "Price and noticable improvement from ryan air"
Cons: "Real value for money"
Pros: "I cancelled it because you changed the time. I hope it was refunded."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, no delays and we arrived on time! No complaints"
Pros: "Quick easy boarding."
Cons: "2 Bachelourette parties were on the flight, they boarded already drunk. Singly loudly and shouting profanities across the plane. The cabin crew did nothing to discourage this and started selling them more alcohol. The 50 minute flight was spent trying to block out the screaming and shouting from these two groups."
Pros: "Timings, the plane was fine for the short journey we had."
Cons: "The boarding process and difficulty in hearing the crew member as he had a very strong Eastern European accent"
Cons: "Boarding/delay etc was shambles did not get on flight had to get flight next day at my expense at cost of over £240"
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: ", bought a coffee & the male attendant told me how to use it . New filter lid"
Cons: "waiting to take off . Flight boarded early then we sat on plane . 12.50 flight & arrived just before 15.00."
Cons: "Group of men, loud drunk and obnoxious. Filling the aisles, the bathrooms, swearing and shouting. The crew seemed powerless to quieten them- or perhaps the money they spent on booze and food persuaded the airline to let them ruin the calm of the flight?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "On time. That's about it."
Cons: "First time flying this airline. Cheap ticket price, but be prepared to get nickel and dimed... Check a bag? Ca-Ching! Choose your own seat? Ca-Ching! Cup of coffee? Ca-Ching! By the time you're booked and boarding, you could be flying an airline that keeps the interior of the aircraft clean, and has a seat pocket to keep your stuff in."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "2.5 hours late for a 60 min flight. Got given snack tokens as compensation but they applied only to airport shops that were all shut"
Pros: "Price was good and the flight was short. Service was better than I had experienced on other Ryan Air flights."
Cons: "Seats were small, price for checking bags at airport was very high 60 pound but 35 if you checked in online before arriving at the airport. Still expensive. Both flights were late taking off and landing."
Cons: "Staff very attentive and courteous"
Pros: "Price from Dublin to Glasgow was unbeatable. They try to get you in the plane quick."
Cons: "They close the door 40 minutes prior, so make sure you get there with plenty of time to line up."
Pros: "Flight out was perfect"
Cons: "I didn't like the 4 hour delay and diversion to Birmingham due to the runway at Stansted!!!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Nothing !!!"
Cons: "Twenty five minutes late taking off. Flight time 1hr 5 mins ... Time waiting on Tarmac on arrival 1hr 1 min before we got to terminal."
Cons: "We left late and we arrived left. Some passangers were drinking too much and they were shouting and speaking in long distance to each other. Raynair people did not calm them down and the noise was horrible!"
