The price

Took to long to board. Even though you pick the seats with extra leg room it does not make a difference. You are cramped. Stood outside for a good 5-10 minutes in 40 degree weather because they decided to open the door but would not let anyone in the plane yet. They should of let us stay in line inside then try to board and be in the cold.

The check in lines were terrible so we carried on our liggage. Then they made us check in our luggage anyway while waiting for the flight yet there was plenty of room in the overhead.

i enjoyed nothing

The staff completely skipped over me when offering drinks and snacks. They offered the other two people in my row food but not me. I literally had my credit out and they just skipped me. The people at the check in desk didn't have any sort of protection for my bag. (Big camping backpack with lots of straps) but the people in CGN did. I don't understand the inconsistencies. And then to top it off nobody informed me the process of customs. I was unprepared because of this and ended up waiting for 1.5 hours. Completely unprofessional in all aspects. I will not be flying Ryanair again.

Delayed boarding. Plane out on Tarmac so one shuttle bus back and forth. Engine trouble. Little information shared. Sat on plane waiting and waiting. Then told we had to disembark. Shuttled everyone back to terminal. More waiting. Then full boarding process again.... Landed in London MANY hours late. Stanstead immigration control was understaffed so HIGE lines. I left Madrid early in the am and lost my entire day ---didn't get back to London until 5pm!

I didn't like anything about it. Spend a bit more and get a real plane and a crew that communicates.

The boarding time to get on and off the plane was fine

This was a short flight were I expected to be able to take a nap. However, the entire time of the flight, the flight attendants were making announcements first in english and then in Spanish. By the time they were done making the announcement in both languages they had another announcement to make. I would have preferred fewer announcements so we could have some peace and quiet during the flight

Everything. We were stuck 3 hours on a hot plane with no air conditioning for "technical problems" and they gave us no information as to what was going on. They also charged us for water and let two people off the plane. Very terrible experience I am extremely disappointed to say the least.

Flight was fine. Nothing extravagant

Was very upset with having to pay an extra $225 for check in fee and baggage fee. I didn't receive an email with the directions on it and was very shocked when she told me I had to pay this much. It was more than I payed for the ticket!! You can imagine how upset I was. This is how they compensate for their cheap tickets I guess...

Flight delayed, long lines, confusion

The check in lines were terrible so we carried on our liggage. Then they made us check in our luggage anyway while waiting for the flight yet there was plenty of room in the overhead.

Nothing

Everything. We were stuck 3 hours on a hot plane with no air conditioning for "technical problems" and they gave us no information as to what was going on. They also charged us for water and let two people off the plane. Very terrible experience I am extremely disappointed to say the least.

Delayed boarding. Plane out on Tarmac so one shuttle bus back and forth. Engine trouble. Little information shared. Sat on plane waiting and waiting. Then told we had to disembark. Shuttled everyone back to terminal. More waiting. Then full boarding process again.... Landed in London MANY hours late. Stanstead immigration control was understaffed so HIGE lines. I left Madrid early in the am and lost my entire day ---didn't get back to London until 5pm!

I didn't like anything about it. Spend a bit more and get a real plane and a crew that communicates.

The boarding time to get on and off the plane was fine

This was a short flight were I expected to be able to take a nap. However, the entire time of the flight, the flight attendants were making announcements first in english and then in Spanish. By the time they were done making the announcement in both languages they had another announcement to make. I would have preferred fewer announcements so we could have some peace and quiet during the flight

The price

Took to long to board. Even though you pick the seats with extra leg room it does not make a difference. You are cramped. Stood outside for a good 5-10 minutes in 40 degree weather because they decided to open the door but would not let anyone in the plane yet. They should of let us stay in line inside then try to board and be in the cold.

i enjoyed nothing

The staff completely skipped over me when offering drinks and snacks. They offered the other two people in my row food but not me. I literally had my credit out and they just skipped me. The people at the check in desk didn't have any sort of protection for my bag. (Big camping backpack with lots of straps) but the people in CGN did. I don't understand the inconsistencies. And then to top it off nobody informed me the process of customs. I was unprepared because of this and ended up waiting for 1.5 hours. Completely unprofessional in all aspects. I will not be flying Ryanair again.

Flight was fine. Nothing extravagant

Was very upset with having to pay an extra $225 for check in fee and baggage fee. I didn't receive an email with the directions on it and was very shocked when she told me I had to pay this much. It was more than I payed for the ticket!! You can imagine how upset I was. This is how they compensate for their cheap tickets I guess...

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
