Cons: "Crew was a bit loud and kept me awake during flight in one of the tail seats"
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."

Pros: "Quick, on time, professional."

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: "Friendly staff."
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: "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: "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."
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."
Pros: "Confort"
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: "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: "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: "..."

Pros: "Everything except the amt of room"
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: "Staff ruth, no asistent help, no staff on airport of rayanner in Dublin, dirty flor inside of plane I will never ever never never travel with Rayanner Slow slow service with both/ cheek in and boarding"

Cons: "Seat by door very uncomfortable"
Cons: "nothing"

DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE! I wish I would have taken the negative reviews I had read to heart before I had to discover it for myself. To start with, we were charged an extra $100 for our carry-on baggage apparently being overweight. This was not something we were told about prior to flying or we would have packed differently. During our layover in Portugal, we were delayed. Once they started to board, we got on the bus and drove out to the plane. Upon arriving at the plane, there were already two other busses there that had not even offloaded yet since they were apparently still servicing the plane. We had to stand in a crowded bus for about 45 minutes packed in like sardines. So much for social distancing and covid concerns! The plane itself was uncomfortable and the service terrible. I have flown across the Atlantic many many times on other airlines and have always received amazing service. This was not the case with TAP. Other than a small glass of water, we were only served drinks one time. There were no refills or additional service, which for a 9-hour flight is unheard of. I hated every minute of my time with TAP and will never fly with them again even if someone offered me a free ticket.

Pros: "The seats are comfortable.nice leg room."
Cons: "Boarding on every airplane company seems off. Sitting in seat 6D and I’m in the second to last boarding group. That cheese on the burger pricing for getting on before others is getting old. Be better."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Bad delay, long security line there"
Cons: "Easy checkin, friendly staff, nice quick flight"
Pros: "legroom in business is good, food was ok. only one round of drinks was offered."
Cons: "no lounge access in dublin for TAP Business Passengers. Handling of the delay was not well managed."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "We were waiting for a long time in the bus from the airport to the aircraft. Once we got to the plane, we were waiting inside the bus again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was over an hour late with little information about why. The gate wasn't shared until the last minute. Boarding was awful and confusing. We were stuck sitting at the gate for a long time with no air and the crew didn't deserve the last ten rows any water. The luggage also took forever to get onto the belt. Overall bad"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Providing more drinks and beverages"
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The boarding crew and gate staff where rude."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Long day. Did not inform you of what was going on. Changed gated not very clear."
Pros: "Crew were amazing. Timely departure. Inflight meal was good."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, a nice and relaxed flight and they gave out complimentary food and coffee which was brilliant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was out of their control"
Cons: "Gate location information delayed until last minute!"
Pros: "The crew on both flights were despite the first flight being delayed by 2 hours."
Cons: "More communication with the passengers."
Cons: "The entertainment is very poor. The programs are not on demand and the screeen is old, small and very poor quality. The A330-200 I flew from Boston to Lisbon was excellent and had the new lie flat seats and on-demand entertainment. Big difference between the two airplanes."
Cons: "3:30 hrs delay lost my convection no one to talk to or any help they gave me nothing I had to stay overnight at my expense n pay new ticket hotel food taxi etc nobody will help or respond for anything"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
Pros: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."
Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "Bad experience with charged"
Cons: "Unruly boarding lines. Plane late .flight attendant less than friendly"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, your site said that I would not have a luggage charge, but I was charged 37 euros more when I checked in."
Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"
Pros: "nothing."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops. It was imposible to accept, so I've cancelled and bouhgt another ticket from other airline and ask for refund. Three months later I still waiting for the money. Not recommend at all TAP."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Late arrival. Had to run thru the terminal to catch the next leg. Lost luggage."
Pros: "It was a very short flight, so non-reclining seats were not a problem. They also seemed a nice distance from the seat in front, so there was no problem of having the person in front basically in your lap."
Cons: "They handed out a small biscuit which made me expect water or coffee to have with it. This is not the case."
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Cons: "Both flights delayed by hours which took my short one day of traveling into two very long days."
Pros: "Very good staff"
Cons: "They ran out of my food choice after the 2nd row of business business class. Their video is 20 years out of date, and for business class a disgrace"
Cons: "I booked this flight months and months ago on Kayak, excited by what I thought was an excellent deal to go visit an old friend. When I got to the Boston airport, I was told there is a fee to check a bag with the ticket type I purchased- of 90 DOLLARS each way!!! This is absurdly expensive. I tried to pay with cash as I had very little on my card, and was told this isn't possible. So I had to pay the fee, and arrive at my 7 hour layover with next to no cash on my card- too little to buy a meal in the airport. So I had a miserable layover experience. I do not recall seeing this baggage fee listed anywhere on Kayak when I booked my flight- it looks like this policy took effect in September 2017, but I booked my flight in July. I am very upset about this additional charge- it is dishonest and I will not be flying with TAP again. I am also considering using alternatives to Kayak, as the TAP representative said that it's Kayak's fault the baggage fee wasn't listed."
Cons: "everything is ok but food is bad. better give to passenger fruit or bisquit, wafers"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Late flight connection"
Pros: "Of no change is BULLSHIT"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew very friendly, check in process easy"
Cons: "Seats are very unconfortable and the space limited. baggage policy isn't very clear; I had to pay 20 extra euros for a checked bag"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Hot food and real utensils Good entertaining selection Very nice staff"
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, plane was clean, smooth flying, takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Check in and bag drop took us 1 hour even though we had already checked in online. hard, and narrow seats, needs more legroom for international travel, armrest between my wife and I was very wide and wouldn't go up all the way making it extremely uncomfortable for us on a flight from Miami to Portugal. My wife's seat didn't recline because it was broken. And to top it all off they lost one of our luggage tags because the lady in Miami tagged the bag with somebody else's name and destination on it. Still waiting to hear if I'm going to have my luggage for one year anniversary vacation....!"
Pros: "Great flight, cordial, good food (yes, it's possible), good entertainment !"
Cons: "Boarding process at the gate can be improved."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Carrying your luggage downstairs is crazy. And then taking a crammed bus to board the plane -- seems very 1960's"
Pros: "Lovely crew, nice breakfast, ON TIME!"
Pros: "On time and the plane may have been the cleanest aircraft I've ever been on."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind. All in all, a very nice travel experience."
Cons: "No water, but it's a short flight so they probably just didn't have time."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Plane clean and comfortable. Would fly again."
Cons: "Agent at the gate wouldn't let me do a medical pre-board. When I checked it, the ticket agent said it wouldn't be a problem, I should just ask at the gate. The agent there said there would be no reason to board early even though I have a doctor's note. She said I could board with everyone else and was extremely rude and dismissive. Thank goodness the ticket agent helped me out (by putting me in a seat where I'd be first to board), but if he hadn't, it would have been a terrible experience."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "It did not included luggage cost which means i had to pay additional cost. You SHOULD state it in booking pages (NOT LINK). If i knew it i would never use TAP. I found direct flight, cheaper. I want you to pay back."
Pros: "Nice crow"
Cons: "We spent about a half hour waiting to take off"
Pros: "Easy checking and boarding process"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees not updated on website. Despite having done my due diligence about baggage fees, the airline didn't update their website since October for my November trip. So I get to airport and pay 74 euro each way for two bags! Old planes and poor customer service Also, nobody picks up their customer assistance telephone number"
Pros: "I only liked the price of the fare....everything else matched the price of the fare. Cheap and bad."
Cons: "First of all I fly all the time at least once a week. This is my first time experiencing roaches on an aircraft!. I tried calling someone but I was looked at and ignored because I wanted to ask top change seats. I didnt want to cause a scene and affect the airlines reputation with people freaking out or feeling uncomfortable so I just moved to another aisle. Service very mediocre and plane was old."
Pros: "I know the flight between Lisbon and Amsterdam is only 3 hours, but it could have been better. First, boarding was a mess because no one could hear announcements being made. Once on the plane, things only got worse. I'm a small person- only 5'4" and even I had no leg room! This was made worse when the seat in front reclined- very claustrophobic. There were also zero entertainment options."
Cons: "It was nice that they served light snacks even though it was a short flight."
Cons: "To whom It May concern: My husband and I had a very very bad time trying fly from lisbon to Madrid through TAP. We booked together under same booking number. We don't know why my husband's ticket had been cancelled?? Thanks good! We have to spend five times more money to buy another ticket to fly together!! Now we try to find out what happened. Nobody want to take the responsibility!! Hope someone can give us the answer! Qi"
Pros: "Staff, online check in, plane, in flight soft drink"
Cons: "Small delay, (about 10 minutes), but this happens"
Pros: "You can always expect reliable and in time service with Avianca."
Cons: "Outdated aircraft, limited space."
Pros: "Booked 1 month in advance... was treated unfairly"
Cons: "I booked one month in asvance and was told that I would be a standby flyer.. even after explaining that I had an international connection flight in madrid. I did not appreciate the added stress this news gave me."
Pros: "The crew was cackling and having fun in the back loudly, meanwhile there was no communication with us as to why we were late or when we would be arriving. When I called one of them over she had no answers and when I told her about our connecting flight she giggled and said I probably wouldn’t make it. We missed our connecting flight and we’re rerouted 4 hours later. We’ve missed our boat to Venice and all we received was an 8 euro lunch voucher."
Cons: "It would have been great to have left on time, arrived on time and caught our flight. I also would have been better if we hadn’t been laughed at and actually aided us to catch our flight."
Cons: "Fly on time, put babies together in one location. Have better food"
Cons: "Shorter lay overs between flights Direct flights from Palma to San senastian"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no announcement was made. The customers should be made aware. I paid extra for a premium seat which was too small for my husband’s knees to fit. He had to sit the whole flight with his knees turned sideways Into the aisle."
Pros: "Well, I liked that I had the aisle seat."
Cons: "It couldve not been 44 minutes late in take off. It was stressful because I reserved a shuttle that would've left me had I been an hour late. And there was no explanation; just copious waste of my time"
Pros: "I was glad that the staff was able to communicate in English. It helps when you're in a foreign country."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Never check in your carry-on if they say there are too many carry-on's on the flight. I saw a lot of Spanish say no when they asked them to, now I know why. I am in Dublin 2days now with NO LUGGAGE or carry on, I have nothing, it all got "misplaced" in transit!"
Cons: "The last seat are located almost inside the toilets. The crew was unhelpful"
Pros: "Entertainment selections were great"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, and they were playing music that was really bad"
Pros: "Iberia is an excellent company to travel."
Pros: "more confort than other companies"
Cons: "be on the plane the connexion was bad and I lost my fly"
Cons: "Delayed ! Lost connection ! Terrible experience"
Cons: "Late boarding, late departure, waited over 30 minutes for bags"
Pros: "boarding was efficient. crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "seats were very close together, not much leg room."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "The airport in Paris"
Pros: "Today was a very early day and making a connecting flight in Madrid to Lisbon was very tight because of a gate change. I was totally convinced that the bags would not make it and they did. Very impressed with Iberia and the efficiency of the staff. The flights were pretty full and everything from take off to landing worked like a charm."
Cons: "I thought when I made the reservation that I had booked two aisle seats but had not and it was hard to sit in the middle seat when you are claustrophobic. Thankfully the flights were short."
Pros: "Puntuales"
Cons: "Durante el vuelo mucho ruido por parte de otros pasajerOs y ningún control por parte del equipo a bordo. Bastante molesto, sobre todo tomando en cuenta que era un vuelo de madrugada donde casi siempre de quiere dormir en el trayecto."
Pros: "The crew was great. We traveled with a two year old and they were very helpful."
Cons: "It was a tight fit."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes, for no apparent reason; and therefore the connecting time at Madrid for me to get my flight to Chicago, which would have been 60 minutes if the flight was on time, was cut down to 30 minutes. And the terminal where the connection was was 25 minutes away -- and this doesn't include time for immigration at Madrid. I had to run all the way, break the queue, and made it though they had shut the gate and had to re-open it. The connections are poorly timed."
Cons: "not sure why we left 30 mins late, we therefore arrived late in MAD and had to literally run to catch our overseas flight. Luggage left behind, no need to say"
Cons: "they book flight connections too close in madrid, resulting in big hassles, especially if passport control is also involved"
Pros: "The staff was amazing!"
Cons: "The seats are very small."
Pros: "Nothing, your flight selection does not flag incorrect airports."
Cons: "When you book through an airline it will flag a different airport from the one you arrive at. We arrived at TFS and the return flight was through TFN. When I called customer service Iberia Airlines rejected any refund and I ended up spending three extra hotels nights and Flights on Air Europa. My total out of losses were nearly $1,500 USD"
Pros: "It was good flight going and returning on time no complaints"
Cons: "The disorganization before the flight st the ticket counter"
Pros: "Good flight, it took less than expected."
Cons: "Cheap food, especially the breakfast."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and easy to travel from SDC to CDG. The crew was very friendly and helpful at the gate and on the aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing. Great crew and easy flight. Connection in Madrid left plenty of time."
Pros: "I got bumped to first in line after they wanted people with only small bags or backpacks to board first."
Cons: "Not really a complaint about Iberia Express as an airline but I hate getting to Berlin Tegel. I took the bus, and it is so hard to stand up with all your luggage on those buses. It's that or a 20 euro taxi ride. At least Madrid airport has a railway line to get into the city."
Cons: "Very poorly managed gate and service for Iberia. Long lines, no organization. Impossible to get any information."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "perfectly and comfortable!"
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Pros: "In general, I have always had great flights when using Iberia; the MAD >NAP flight segments included."
Cons: "Iberia Express uses smaller, Airbus320s and certainly packs passengers in! I'm 6'5"/191cm, and the flight between MAD to NAP almost 3 hours. That's a long time to sit with knees wedged into the unpadded seat in front of you. Window seats have even less room than aisle seats. It also makes things worse when passenger in front wants to fully recline their seat, passenger next to you wants to sprawl out - very claustrophobic! Also, there are no freebies on this flight charging for even a cup of coffee or glass of water!"
Pros: "not budget airline"
Cons: "sadin cabin..."
Cons: "The stewardess kept on hitting my husband who due to crammed seats could not fit."
Pros: "Respectful flight attendants, flight was on time. It was perfect."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The seats and service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Punctual, very important."
Cons: "Iberia charge any seat if not radom assigned"
Pros: "It was good, the pilot was great."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Iberia has been consistently late in arrival. I missed my connecting flight on the way out to spain and nearly missed a connecting flight returning to the USA. I had to literally sprint to the gate. My bags never made it to the states with me. I am still waiting for them to return. I don't feel I can take Iberia again for any future flights"
Cons: "atencion al publico, de parte del personal en el aeropuerto en madrid"
Pros: "Flights were on time!"
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. On-line check-in was impossible. Problems stemmed from ticket being written for multiple carriers compounded with code-sharing issues. Unable to check-in via computer and no phone help on Sunday. When I went to the airport early to check in for flight, they were only able to check-in the first two segments leaving me scrambling in Frankfort to get checked in for Lufthansa flight. Never again!!!!"
Pros: "Timeliness"
Pros: "My carry on luggage did not arrive on the plan but finally was delivered at home complete and safe. Thanks a lot Iberia"
Cons: "That the carry on luggage was taken to the luggage area"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The legroom"
Pros: "We went from A to B."
Cons: "Nobody spoke any english, ONLY SPANISH. The seats were extremelly tight, we were offered nothing, not even water, and there were 4-5 girls in the plane yelling to each other about something that had happened and they had to kick out one of their friends and no one would tell them to be quiet."
Pros: "On time, quick boarding. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No air bridges"
Pros: "nothing"

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: "Short and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Setting off time delayed by 40 minutes"
Pros: "Off ons time no extras got here quick all I want"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "By the time you were up it was on its wayndowm 40 mins"

Cons: "everything"
Pros: "New plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Very late service. Crew forgot about our row during the drinks service. Usual chaos from Ryanair's aggressive seating policy although people managed to swap themselves around to sit together. This wasted more time of course."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Screaming children and little food on offer. No tea...again"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "new plane"
Pros: "Staff at gate very friendly and efficient. Staff on flight very pleasant and professional. Lovely flight no problems."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like that, one of the pasangers was with a little girl and she was screaming all the way from Dublin to madrid and the crew didn't help at all to have a solution! Also when I was inside of the plane I ask someone of the crew if they have space to put my wedding dress and she look at me like I was crazy and they just told me no! With a very bad tone of voice!"
Pros: "Very cheap flight, attentive and polite cabin crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight but left standing at the departure gate in Dublin waiting 30 mins for no reason"
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."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Take off delayed due to some technical issue, but still landed on time, very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendents were a little tough"
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: "It is just like riding the bus"
Cons: "They charge extra to seat passengers together. They wanted 30€ to print boarding passes when my phone was low power."
Pros: "Flight went to plan, no problems boarding and on time."
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "half hour delay for take off :( sitting in cabin- cant use loos until plane is up... uncomfortable"
Cons: "Stupid 50 we had to pay extra. Never fly this airline again. A scam leaving me feeling like I was just screwed. I will actively tell people to never fly with you. Cut the surprise check in fee like normal airlines."
Pros: "It was cheap, quick and easy"
Cons: "The rules around baggage, priority boarding and purchasing seats is not very clear"
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: "Seats don't"
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"
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?"
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: "It was prompt and professional. Thee was no hassle with checked (prepaid) or carry on luggage."
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: "The plane arrived before"
Pros: "Regular stuff. Mostly good."
Cons: "Leg space was littered with pieces of crisps. Perhaps it is cleaned only once a day and not in between flights."
Pros: "On time and speedy boarding"
Cons: "everything was for purchase on the plane. No complimentary drinks. And a lot of selling on the plane. My flight was selling scratch tix for charity"
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: "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."
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
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!"
