Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Text messages on flight status and boarding procedure"
Pros: "The Woman who told me I had to check my larger bag gave me a break and gave me a checking sticker"
Cons: "The plane was very hot for most of the trip. The crew was running around a lot, tripped on me. The captain had no idea what they were saying and said uh a lot, did not inspire confidence. There was no entertainment available. No complimentary refreshment options like most flights have. I was only allowed 1 small bag and had to check my other which had fragile objects in it."
Pros: "nice, fun crew"
Cons: "plane was filthy"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight that didn't allow a carryon bag and some kind of bad to tuck under the seat ahead of you. There was room for my small backpack but because I had a carryon suitcase to go in the overhead bin, they made us check that bag and pay a very hefty fee."
Pros: "Maybe it was the time of the year but we waited longer on the plane than the flight itself."
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "3 hours late! Horrible on time service."
Cons: "they over booked the flight and i couldnt fly out to the next day."
Cons: "The delay and the fact I didn't have a seat because of overbook!"
Cons: "It seems to be a particular quirk of British Airports that gates are not announced until shortly before flight departure. I really dislike this because instead of making one's way direct to the gate and relaxing at the gate, one must wait in a crowded "shopping mall" with no view of the aircraft, and then when the gate is announced, make a mad rush to the gate. The rest of the world can give the gate well ahead of time, why can't Britain do the same?"
Pros: "I liked the flight crew, and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I wish there wasn't a charge for luggage, or it would be better if check-in luggage was cheaper. I didn't try food or entertainment, but the flight was short so it wasn't really necessary."
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "Is it really necessary to charge for even water?"
Pros: "Its cheap on time"
Cons: "The ground crew didn't allow a carry on which was supposedly allowed"
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time even though I had received a message earlier in the day that the flight was delayed."
Cons: "The extra costs associated with flying EasyJet.. the flights aren't that inexpensive to begin with and then every little thing costs extra.. it's kind of annoying."
Cons: "Landed 3 hours late"
Pros: "Mostly one time and fit my budget"
Cons: "Asking passenger to fit the laptop bag in to the cabin baggage is ridiculous when you know that it will be taken out after boarding"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "They didn't confirm the delay - only said it was estimated meaning while we could have come to the airport at a later time given the delay they made us come at the time required for the original flight. For a three hour delay thy gave us a 3GBP voucher. I will be fighting for compensation but am appalled by their service"
Cons: "No sucked"
Pros: "For a short trip it's fine. Price is right, the staff is cheerful, shuttle buses took us to customs very quickly. The bag drop system is very efficient."
Cons: "You know what you get with this airline: no frills, tight spaces, and you board and deplane outdoors (in a downpour in London)."
Pros: "Cheap fare. Friendly crew. Don't book a budget flight and expect First Class facilities."
Cons: "I'm 6'3", so found the seats a little cramped. Bearable for the 2 hour flight from London to Murcia. I wouldn't want to go much further in those seats. Food and drink onboard is ridiculously overpriced."
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Pros: "Efficient bag check, efficient boarding, on time departure, smooth flight."
Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."
Pros: "Nothing, I missed my flight. Where can I get a refund?"
Cons: "Kayak, Your application sent me a flight reminder three hours before my flight indicating that my flight was delayed by one hour, leaving at 2:35 pm instead of the scheduled 1:35 pm. When I arrived at the airport, the board displayed no delay. I went to easyJet counter and no delay. I arrived late and missed my flight! I missed my flight and need a refund this error that was caused by KAYAK! I am reachable at +41.78.916.5756. email@example.com Thank you, Michael"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "We rushed through the duty free shops because the sign said the gate was closing, but boarding had barely even started."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Lack of communication, one massive rude boarding employee who complained a 5-inch side bag was an "extra bag" and would not be allowed unless stuffed into a larger backpack - had strict luggage policies that were immediately contradicted by opening announcement on airplane. Also, received gate number only 10 min prior to boarding"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Disorderly boarding process to the plane, once in the gate."
Pros: "We did not realize Easyjet does not distinguish between personal items and carry-on luggage like most other carriers. As such we had too many hand bags. They kindly checked our bags for us."
Pros: "great no frills airline"
Pros: "We were delayed but the flight was pleasant and they kept us in the know. Very important. Staff was friendly and courteous on our short flight. Checking in and the bag collect all went easily. If fly them again."

Cons: "After an hour delay, there was a double check system. No jet way"
Pros: "Kind crew, easy boarding and comfortable flight."
Pros: "The price. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The qualifier service was terrible. My sister was asked to put her handbag in my carryon because she wouldn't have that and a small suitcase. There were plenty of other people who had both but we were singled out. The comfortability of he flight wasn't good. There wasn't any entertainment option either. Won't ever fly easyJet again."
Pros: "The flight leaves on time, though the boarding process makes me sad. The good thing is that you expect so less from Easyjet that they don't disappoint you."
Cons: "The boarding process and the far away gates they use."
Pros: "The crew were very helpful. Also I enjoyed my seating arrangements."
Pros: "Easy app use and automated check-in. Score!"
Pros: "Nothing we booked because of flight time but was not worth it"
Cons: "They charge u extra for your carry on we were flying internationally which allows u 1 suitcase 1 carry on and a hand bag easy jet only allows I carry on charges for suit case and hand bag would not take ever again u have to pay for food too"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little hectic - the sign for Venice was at gate 28, and they called for people to board, but they were still boarding for Berlin. Then there was a last call for boarding for Venice - but they hadn't even started boarding for Venice yet and it was meant to be a last call for Berlin. And then Venice ended up at a different gate (but only one over)."
Pros: "Easy and convenient"
Cons: "Clarity of front and rear entry instructions."
Cons: "Customer service was terrible and not helpful. Their website is stupid and malfunctioning. The staff is impolite, arrogant, racist, and threatening. I'll never ever fly with this company again!!"
Pros: "Best part was the ability to get access to loung for a little bit extra... So worth it. Price reasonable. Seats same. Did not try food or entertainment."
Cons: "Gate agents failed to treat me with compassion and were bent on charging me GBP 45 for a second item small backpack I had genuinely thought I would be fine to bring onboard"

Cons: "Staying 2 hours inside the plane waiting for the flight to depart."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and wasn't handled professional"
Pros: "the flight is punctual and you get what you paid for"
Cons: "the airport staff, are not helpful, extremely rude... they are not friendly and completely not supporting families, and should be changed to real easy jet staff. Extremely disappointing attitude from the staff"
Cons: "26A for 1.85m guy. Not even a window. I thought i would die. Legs cramped."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and boarding was smooth but flight was more than an hour late and we missed our connecting international flight."
Cons: "Our Easyjet flight from London to Milan was more than 1 hour late due to which we missed our connecting flight from Milan to New Delhi. We were stranded in Milan for one night and had to fly to Vienna for another night before we found a flight leaving to New Delhi from Frankfurt. We endured extreme inconvenience and should be compensated for the same. We had to find a hotel for one night in Milan and one night in Vienna before we could fly to our final destination. We are very disappointed with Easyjet :("
Pros: "The price makes it very inviting to fly Ryanair. I misunderstood the need to electronically check in before I arrived at the airport but was helped, very courteously, by the ticket agent."
Cons: "Any food or beverage was for a fee. It was a short flight and midday so it wasn't a problem for me but under different circumstances it could be."
Pros: "There is a large lounge at the gate at Gatwick that the passengers could have been checked into prior to boarding commencing, but this was not used. Instead, A large queue was in place for over 40 minutes and once boarding commenced, as many were checking cabin bags into the hold, boarding took about 30 minutes, delaying the flight by 30 minutes"
Pros: "Grew was nice, professional"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. I missed my business meeting"
Pros: "low fares /on time"
Cons: "small seat / hard to get on to their web site to pay for luggage and check in"
Pros: "staff in Dublin"
Cons: "Not Ryanair fault but it took over an hour to get our luggage at Edinburgh - no exaggerationas it took 75 min. Baggage staff said they were understaffed"
Cons: "They didn't have record that I had paid for extra luggage for my party of 7. Luckily, I had my paperwork so I was able to finally get my luggage on without paying again. The flight bordered 40 minutes late and then sat on the runway for an hour. They was never an announcement as to why. My mother is in a wheelchair. They didn't let her pre-board, and then put her wheelchair through with the luggage. She had to get to the luggage carousel without it. They told her to just walk. Luckily, she can walk a little with help. Yikes, if she was totally disabled."
Cons: "Check in was a hassle. Had to go through the line twice. The machine wouldn't read my electronic boarding pass. I wasn't the only one."
Cons: "Delayed a bit."
Pros: "Ease of use"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Cons: "The lady at check in was rude. Also how she wanted to charge us 140 pounds because our luggage was over in kilos. So we removed everything to lower the amount only to bring the items onto the plane anyway. Then there was hardly any room in the over head compartments for everyone to put their things. very counter intuitive."
Pros: "Nothing. It is hard to imagine businesses advertise on the plane. Why would any reputable business want to be associated with this company?"
Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "They got me where I wanted to go."
Cons: "I felt threatened by the generally rude staff for arriving approriatly early for my flight and packing the right sized luggage. This airline is not worth the small amount of money you pay. The next time we fly we will chose anyone but Ryanair. Overall a pretty poor experience."
Pros: "Good flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight taxied from gate more than 40 minutes late. We stood in line to board for well over an hour."
Cons: "I checked in online as instructed. Then at the airport I am told I am not checked in, that online check in is over and that I have to pay £50 PER PERSON to get printed boarding passes. Then the flight was delayed over 90 minutes."
Pros: "Clean Aircraft"
Cons: "Boarding on the flight out did the Irish Rugby Scrum proud and on this Trip it was a STAMPEDE. Please readdress the boarding arrangements, Ever the Priority Boarders were overrun !!"
Cons: "i was charged for still water. you are flying in a pressurized cabin for over an hour, and you don't feel obligated to offer them the most basic of services, like water. when will you begin to charge for using the toilets?"
Pros: "Horrible assistance and no sympathy for the situation"
Cons: "Check in process was extremely slow at the gate. We were delayed over an hour on the tarmac."
Pros: "Boarding was cramped and it seemed like they ran out of overhead storage fast but everyone got safely on and off the plane."
Cons: "My luggage cost more than my ticket. Rip-off Next time ill take a different airline"
Cons: "Cattle car approach. Cost saving is commendable. Charging for EVERYTHING is not."
Cons: "Sardine seating. Very poor "breakfast". Constant selling of deals"
Pros: "Cost of the ticket but then...,"
Cons: "We could not print the tickets. Called Ryan they said just print at the airport. We arrived 2 hours before our flight and were told go back to the machine, and print tickets. We were charged 15 euros x 6 tickets. The agent said, "you should have been here 3 hours early to avoid the charge." Probably will not fly with them again. Why wouldn't they mention this when we sat on hold to tell them we could not get the tickets to print??"
Pros: "Inexpensive, easy boarding, arrived early."
Cons: "They tried to sell us stuff (perfumes, etc.) the entire flight. It was like watching home shopping network for the entire flight. This may be a European thing, I'm not sure."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Charging £66+ just to print a boarding pass at the airport is ridiculous."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the members on board were great"
Cons: "Terrible experience getting help, unable to print boarding pass and the lady at the front refused to help us. We got there 2 1/2 hours early and she sent us in circles trying to get our passes that we almost missed our flight because of her refusals to help us print the boarding pass."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the great was friendly"
Cons: "We lined up at gate 109 to board then they changed the gate to 104 the last minute."
Cons: "Almost everything : surprise charge for not having printed out a boarding pas before I got to the airport : extortionate fee for checking on one bag : I guess I've been spoiled on other airlines with the privilege of being able to take a bag of luggage. This, together with the penalty for not checking in online more than doubled the cost! : be prepared for a long wait : very disorganized at the airport : they want you to arrive very early. : one of the flight attendants was pretty rude. : the flight was about an hour late : moral of the story is never take luggage on Ryanair : it's only meant for travelers who can keep up with the hidden fee schedule, travel light and who can put up with discomfort."
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, crowded in the waiting room"
Pros: "Quick trip from London to Dublin. Clean, new aircraft. Safe flight from start to finish."
Cons: "No complimentary water!"
Pros: "Ryan air had a convenient flight time from Gatwick to Dublin - that is the ONLY reason I flew with that airline. I was able to get a last minute reservation, but it came at a high price."
Cons: "Cramped seats and narrow aisles; no complimentary food or beverage provided. Crew seemed harried. Flight was not on schedule."
Cons: "Why did I pay for priority boarding? It didn't give me any sort of priority! And then we sat on a wretchedly hot flight for 40 minutes before leaving."
Pros: "Cheap travel"
Cons: "We were delayed two hours, with no announcements of changes. You needed to watch the boards and if you missed it, you missed the flight even after you had sat there for two hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no on was told"
Pros: "It was efficient, quick, and an overall good flight."
Cons: "the flight was very noisy, but, fortunately, it was only an hour or so long, so it did not affect us that much."
Cons: "Did not know there was a 45 euro check in fee per person...never was advertised!"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the food, and service wasn't too bad"
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. They warn you that you need to check yourself in online at least 2 hours before or they will charge you. We got there three hours in advance, tried to check in online but the the page always redirected you to their wifi which they want you to pay for. The only other way around this was to use the other wifi but that means we would have to do download their app. In the end, we nearly missed my flight because of all this and so we ended up checking in there and being charged £90 or $135. What a ripoff."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth and safe flight."
Cons: "No entertainment, and no power source to charge my own electronic devices for entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and always smiling."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour and we weren't given any notice or information as to why. When we were finally given a gate number to board (barely 30 mins before our scheduled take off) we were directed to a closed gate with no staff or plane and waited there for over half an hour before Ryanair staff arrived. When staff members arrived (after the scheduled departure time) they had no idea what was going on or why there was a delay. I clearly heard one of them say, "I don't know why all these people are here." The lack of information was frustrating and it was unfortunate the staff at the gate had to try to deal with a problem they had absolutely no clue about let alone seem to even care about. I do not plan on flying with Ryanair again because of this horrible customer service experience."
Pros: "Boarding from both sides of the plane was good"
Cons: "Made us wait in line for way too long, No air conditioning on the ground made the plane sweltering."
Cons: "Charged $20 to print a boarding card, $50 for luggage, and $50 to check in at the airport. Flight attendants were peddlers of goods--no free service"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Tried to charge us for everything, including 15 pounds for printing a boarding pass. WiFi was only free for an hour at the airport, flight was delayed by two hours, plane lacked AC and was super cramped and hot. Boarding was also a mess."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Couldn't understand over the loud speaker.. Boarding was awful-waiting standing. Touch down was scary"
Pros: "We had been scared by other reviews, but this was not as bad as we'd read. There is no entertainment onboard, no food except for sale, and some luggage restrictions you need to take note of before you check in. Otherwise, quick smooth flight, friendly staff, luggage arrived, so overall fine experience."
Cons: "Do you have a hour!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Our backpacks cost as much as our tickets. I probably will use them again, though."
Cons: "Fees for everything. Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "Crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking a long and tedious process. The flight had only limited food because the passengers on the previous blight ate it all - really!?"
Pros: "Arrived on time, boarding went quickly"
Cons: "No menu available; had to listen to attendant repeat offerings over and over"
