Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible, Santorini’s airport was horrible, the flight was delayed, no one knew what was going on, there is no organization with boarding it was a mess"
Pros: "The crew did a fanstastic job!"
Cons: "The seats werent the best and my seat didnt have a window."
Cons: "Beware of checked baggage, the costs are astronomic (around 60 usd per bag)"
Cons: "Charged full fight fee, don't ask customers pay over size luggage penalty minutes before departure"
Cons: "High baggage and other fees that are not publicized. Web site just says check bags start at 15 euro, actual price was over 50 euro."
Pros: "Simplicity and welcome with a smile"
Cons: "The departure gate was far"
Cons: "The return flight was very turbulent, but mostly close to take off and landing."
Pros: "The only saving grace to this whole experience was the woman at the check in counter who was friendly and made small talk while checking our bags."
Cons: "Honestly, I would consider myself well travelled but after this flight I wanted to rule out air travel from our future plans. The take off was bumpy, fast and uncomfortable. Handling the turbulence was unbearable and I had a full blown panic attack on the flight. I couldn't understand a word of the English announcements each time we hit turbulence. I felt unbearably sick but couldn't bring myself to get out of my seat. There was no food, no entertainment, and definitely no entertainment. I hope to never fly Volotea again."
Cons: "the app is that that great, it gets stook. Also, they don't have any chance to change or re-schedule any flight."
Pros: "Boarding was like any other boarding, it went fine, but then we had to sit on runway for about 30 minutes or so. Not a huge deal. I keep myself busy on computer so flight went quickly."
Cons: "Flight crew was not happy and they didn't even pretend to be. Seats were not comfortable at all and mine even had a huge tear in it so it just bugged my back side the entire flight. Food was not good at all! Salad smelled moldy. Oh yeah, and I ended up paying extra for my bags that were exactly the same as my husbands but he was not up charged. Between the c crew and the constant selling and up charges, I would rather pay more for a different company."
Pros: "Checking and boarding were easy. Also email reminders were helpful."
Cons: "Could they spare a drink of water? They charged extra for everything, including the air you breathed."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Have to carry any carry-on luggage up the metal stairs in any weather, up to plane. Same thing after landing."
Pros: "Organization in boarding the plane"
Cons: "When i read the baggage rate, its only 20 euro, when i got there its 40 euro the lady told me its cheaper on line cuz i was there 6 hours early. I didnt know that i have to buy the baggage ahead of time. It would be nice if its highlighted in red when i bought the tix. Also i had to pay extra 30 euro bec i didnt chk in on line, seriously? What is the point of having a chk un counter? Also i was told to come back 2 hours before my flight . As i said i was there 6 hours eatly, when i came back the chk in on line is already closed. Im sure its a common problem , a lot if ppl paid extra and were complaining, they could have told us or have a sign there. Dont u think 30 euro is a lot to pay for not chking in? Is it only in europe? Its better when we book that ppl shld be warn of the pronlem, i paid extra 210 euro bec there are 3 of us plus the internet there suck at the airport , if you get in on the internet in 2 mins you are out or cant get in gor hours"
Cons: "I booked an afternoon flight on Volta. They changed me weeks later to a morning flight. I told them I wanted to cancel my earlier flight and preferred a refund instead. I have never received credit for my cancellation."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "They took me and my wife's carry on, that we had already stored in the over head cabins on 3 flights before this one and told me it was to big. Then they made me pay 120 Euros and asked me to take the bag out to the plane. When I got to the plane the men working with the suitcases said my bag was more than capabale of fitting overhead and let me take it up. So they charged me 120 Euros extra for nothing and only did this once they saw my American Passport."
Cons: "Will never fly them again"
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "About 50 minutes late, hard landing, and worst of all they called us for boarding and we went out of the semi-comfortable terminal and STOOD in the HOT sun. Our plane hadn't even landed. We stood out there for 40 minutes. Voltea is even a worse version of Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "I cancelled the trip because in reading the fine print, I found the cost of checking a single small bag almost as much as the cost of the flight itself. Cancellation was accepted but took some effort to do it."
Pros: "A flight es eventually arranged"
Cons: "There was zero communication from Volotea over 12 hours of being stuck when a flight was delayed. For a long time I thought the flight was cancelled. Now that I am trying to seek compensation via EU guidelines they are similarly evasive and not helpful."
Pros: "Accepted phone scans of our boarding passes. Decent price Nice crew Left a little late but still managed to arrive 15 minutes early on a one hour flight."
Cons: "I only gave one star for food but I didn't buy any food so I would rather have a "not applicable" category."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling staff , seats have good leg room , time of departure was accurate"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "minimum fuss from beginning to end, and no bombarding by emails. their staff all handle carry-on luggage discreetly even when slightly over sized ... Compliments to Volotea."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, planes are old, no entertainment and boarding process was unorganized"
Cons: "Due to delays we missed our flight. I emailed and got no response. Tried calling. Office was closed on Saturday. Went to their desk and no one was there. I would like to be reimbursed. I had to then pay for two tickets on Aegean Airline totalling $400.00"
Pros: "Excellent price and route. Very friendly crew. I didn't need much for a 2hr flight. Met all my expectations."
Pros: "Flight was fine once we got going but one staff working made for a long long line and a half hour delay. Staff were excellent though."
Cons: "Waited to board for 1 hour- no seat assignments- price to pay for checked baggage increases by the hour as your departure nears. The price for a checked bag was €42 at 10am and when I checked again at 11:30am, price was €55!"
Pros: "Personnel were helpful, polite and spoke English as well as many other languages."
Cons: "Volotea is a low cost airline that charges for early seat assignments, printing boarding passes, luggage and drinks on the flight. There is a service charge added to everything. It isn't as low cost as it initial appears. Beware"
Pros: "Good short flight"
Cons: "Short flight, no food or entertainment"
Pros: "the plane were very old and we felt scared since there was turbulence and the plane showed an unsafe one..."
Pros: "Seats were OK and overhead storage was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 min without explanation."
Cons: "The next flight they had to my destination was 3 DAYS later. Therefore, I had to purchase another three tickets with a different carrier and got NO credit for the missed fight with Volotea. BAD Business."
Pros: "Everything in the plane felt new, crew was friendly, efficient."
Pros: "Price, direct flight"
Cons: "No frills, no beverage/snack service, seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Volotea flight was good and I would fly Volotea again but checking in at the Santorini Airport is Chaos for all airlines Santorini Airport needs to organize the check in area with better barriers especially for the very long line of psgrs lining up for security Without barriers it's unclear where the line ends and where those joining the line should go therefore causing a lot of confusion and people trying to bud in"
Pros: "We printed the boarding passes a week prior and we were ready to go! However Volotea emailed us 24 hours prior to tell us some information had changed and we had new boarding passes. We were worried that we had to pay extra as we were already traveling and could not print the new boarding passes. It was no problem! We downloaded the app and the crew just scanned the app boarding passes. It was a huge relief."
Pros: "price was great for our flight, otherwise it was like any other flight, nice attendants, nice clean plane, on time"
Cons: "Plane delayed for 2 hours. Small, cramped airport(Santorini) with no working men's restroom."
Pros: "I liked how they played music"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and still has not been located. The bag tag number was entered incorrectly numerous times with different agents over the phone as well as at the airport."
Pros: "The flight was so smooth I forgot I was on a plane. Great landing, too."
Pros: "Nothing to be honest."
Cons: "When we checked in my bag was 21 kg and she gave me trouble with that even though we had to pay extra for the bag in the first place. And then since it was a backpack we had to take it to a different location to drop it off for check-in. She also wasn't too friendly either. The flight was an hour and a half delayed. In fact each time I have flown with volotea the airplane hasn't been on time and hasn't even taken off by the time the flight was scheduled to land! The seats were close and the ride was not comfortable. I absolutely will not be using this airline again and certainly would not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "Left us standing for a huge time in front of customs and arrived late to boarding gate. Ridiculous.y small measurement boxes for carry on luggage which would not hold standard carry on bags. This dispute the plane having full sized overhead bins that easily accommodated the bags. Forced us to pay $60 a bag under the pretext that the bags would have to be ch caked. But they didn't, we just carried them on and there was plenty of room. They were rude and unreasonable and let lots of people through without the charges after they simply removed items from their bags and carried them a few feet before putting them back. It was just a shake down."
Cons: "The flight was delayed , no communication, no bus arrived at the gate to take us to the plane , no communication , no boarding process whatsoever , no communication , no apology offered , no in flight catering offered free or for purchase , a complete joke of a flight , my worst ever and I have flown all around the world including both poles !"
Cons: "They nickle and dimed us on everything including printing my boarding pass when in the end I didn't even need it. The. They were over an hour late They they didn't even serve us a drink on the plane. Worst airline I've ever flown with. if I thought I'd ever get it I'd be demanding my money back."
Cons: "The baggage drop off was combined for two different flights. It went so slow it almost delayed the flight."
Cons: "My itinerary gave a 10:35am departure and the plane departed at 10:05am. I had to run through airport, pay a 60 euro self serv handling fee and they checked my carry on when that was uneccesary."
Pros: "On time, no delays, very nice crew."
Pros: "plane was clean enough"
Cons: "horrible check in process, horrible. there was a line out the door of the airport. one lady checking in an entire plane. the pilot also seemed like a novice due to the incredibly scary landing. The last 15 minutes of the ride was VERY turbulent and the landing was VERY hard."
Cons: "Made us run from one end of the airport to the opposite end, because they said they had ‘operational difficulties’, causing them to switch gates between two flights. Total baloney, and completely avoidable."
Cons: "Informing why flight was delayed. Reclining seats Water service"
Cons: "The bag drop process is confusing and the people working the counters are unresponsive and rude."
Cons: "Horrible boarding process."
Pros: "Good price and fairly smooth process"
Cons: "Carry-on luggage and a personal item should be allowed. Seats should recline. And at least 1 free non alcoholic beverage."
Pros: "Because of the fire to the Notre Dame Cathedral, trains were not stopping on the route we needed to get to to the airport. We left with plenty of time to spare, and because no one at the airline mentioned that delays could be a possibility due to this, we ended up missing our flight."
Cons: "I'm not usually one to complain, but this situation was very difficult and even dangerous. There was zero communication from the airline about this, and we'd appreciate if the airline could pay for our new airfare and our Uber ride from the train station to the airport."
Pros: "The calzone (food)."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. No direct access to the plane. They make these things called jet ways... start using them! Also the crew said the front bathroom was not in service then proceeded to allow the captain and crew plus a few passengers to use it."
Pros: "Wide seats with plenty of legroom, but we were on an exit isle."
Cons: "Felt like we were being herded like cattle"
Cons: "Was not told when booking on Kayak the extra charges that Easy Jet charged for baggage and that the weight limits were much lower than the US."
Pros: "Everything was smooth :)"
Pros: "Great price Arrived early Luggage arrive quickly Very Efficient"
Cons: "Pay for all extras - including coffee"
Pros: "The actual flight crew was pleasant to speak with."
Cons: "Despite online AND my experience flying to Santorini on the same airline, the boarding personnel at Santorini not only didn't communicate which gate until right when boarding started but inexplicably told me only 1 cabin bag was allowed and forced me to go back out through security and pay 60 euros to last minute check the bag. Also the seats don't recline in plane, there is no internet or movies on board, and no snacks or drinks are provided complimentary despite taking off over an hour late for an international flight."
Pros: "Cheap flight. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Check-in agent gave bad info about gate assignment and details about baggage at boarding. Caused us much stress. Airport personnel clarified for us. Seats were not comfortable at all. Not much different than deep discount US airline."
Cons: "Flight was two and a half hours late. Not acceptable"
Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Everyone was a bit confused by my Calton Hard Shell case but they let me on, gratefully. My instrument and all the passengers luggage fit with space to spare."
Pros: "I thought the food was good."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for an hour and a half and we had to sit on the plane for the entire time. The staff was rude and short. I don’t think Americans are very populated. Food selection was very limited, but at least we got a KitKat bar. They were out of all the sandwich food/main dishes."
Cons: "They made us pay for our bag even though we only had one and it fit into the measurements. They said it was because it was full but they still made us pay 60 euros each. Making it a 120 euro more than it should have been. They also pretended not to speak English when we tried to talk to them about payment even though they spoke perfect English when they told us the cabin overheads were full. Will definitely be contacting kayak about this."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3.5 hours, and the employees were unable to explain the cause of the delay. The employees of the airline in CDG were receiving contradicting information and letting the passengers know contradicting information. They told us they would provide money for food, and the money they provided was only 4.5 euro, not enough to get a bag of chips. The experience going to Venice was horrible with easy jets."
Pros: "Boarding was ok although a last minute gate change was an inconvenience."
Cons: "Delays due to French air strikes and being held on the plane for an hour while we waited."
Pros: "nothing but rude"
Cons: "I prepaid to check my 2 roller bags and no one was at the drop off so they charged me TWICE the crazy expensive fee to check it at the gate while others with guitars and duffle bags were allowed on. Our bags would have fit in the overheads."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I wasn't able to be on the flight because they didn't schedule a realistic amount of time to make the connection."
Cons: "It was cancelled !!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in aircraft"
Cons: "Herding of customers like cattle, bus not big enough for all customers. Gate staff rude, generally All border staff at Gatwick were rude and treated paying customers appallingly"
Pros: "Nothing, misleading customers with 08.00 flights confirmed as 20.00 is unfair and most sledding to customers. I had to cancel within five seconds of receiving misleading confirmation. We had a cruise to catch at 1.00pm so could not take the late flight"
Cons: "See comnrnt above"
Cons: "The plane departed over an hour late and the service was poor. Easyjet is an ironic name as it was anything but easy."
Cons: "I paid 80 euro more just to be able to take an extra 6 kilo for a total of 46 ( the total i left with on the flight to Europe from miami for two bags). Yet when i was over about 1.6 kilos ( had bought a sweater and some other gifts in rome ) i was forced to remove it or pay even more money. So it turns out these "cheap flights" always have a catch to them. Be aware for these little tricks."
Pros: "The flight attendants Simone and the young lady were fabulous"
Cons: "As always, flight delayed 1h. Very annoying."
Pros: "The inflight crew were caring wonderful people!!!"
Cons: "We waited too long in the line to check in (after we had checked in online). On our departure flight to Milano at the gate we were charged 60 euros for each of our bags, which was an surprise unexpected charge of 180 euros and none of our bags were over the weight limit. On our arrival flight we checked in online and paid an additional $5 euros each just in case we were over the weight limit (which we were not but we did not want to take the chance since Easy Jets Limits are less than all the airlines we fly with). No option online that said we had to pay for our bags again. Check in crew very unfriendly and rude... We don't like hidden charges, unexplained charges and being over charged. Please refund these bag charges. Thank you."
Pros: "I take this line to try a low cost trip."
Cons: "It's a trap, if you sum all the fees and extras, then you realize that it's no low cost. The personal are rude, offensive, the plane is uncomfortable, the takeoff and landing were messy."
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, "low fare" price very misleading; crew provided inconsistent and disorganized service--charged some people for snacks, forgot to charge other people--was frustrating."
Pros: "We had no idea we had to pay for checked luggage. Until we arrived at check in. Hidden fee and so wrong! So we ended up paying another $98 on top of the ticket price. Now I understand why there was so much carry- on luggage! And that took soooooooo much longer to board and exit the plane. No entertainment. Small seats. Sorry, Easy Jet, but never again."
Pros: "Flight was on time and bags came out quickly"
Pros: "Boarding was easy this time because they asked to gate check our carry ons and because we agreed they gave us priority boarding."
Cons: "Still a super uncomfortable flight. Seats are terrible, they talk most of the flight, just ughhh"
Pros: "Staff/crew were friendly, efficient."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed flight 1 1/2 hours. We sat on plane the entire time."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "We started and arrived 1 hour delayed. Quite annoying if you know that rental cars and hosts are waiting in middle of night"
Cons: "Flight delayed, gate changes twice. By the time I get to the new gate, doors are closed. Asked the desk staff for assistance given the gate change. Claimed they had no information and couldn't help. Said flight was already in the air. Flight actually departed an additonal 30 minutes after the original delay time. Cheap flights justify poor customer service according to easyjet!"
Cons: "No boarding gate was printed on our tickets. No boarding gate was displayed on the airport screens. We arrived to CDG 2 hours early. But the airline closed boarding a half hour before the flight time on the ticket. We and others were then not allowed on the flight despite the fact that screens at the gate still said "boarding". When we tried to reschedule the Easy Jet information desk quoted us prices significantly higher than those we found online on our phones at the same time. We had to buy all new tickets spend the entire day in the airport and were fined by our hotel for late check in. Huge loss of money and waste of time. AVOID THIS AIRLINE!"
Cons: "They made us pay 47 dollars to check our bags but when we got in the plane other people had the same size bags in the plane. We weren't told we didn't had to check them in."
Pros: "I was really surprised since I didn't have good expectations going in. The whole experience from checkin to checkout was really good."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2:30 hours"
Cons: "Checkin lines were horrible.."
Pros: "The flight was nearly on time"
Cons: "The boarding procedure was casually inhuman. Of course the seats were too small, but the boarding process was clearly botched but without a word. Someone threw up it so so hot and packed inside the bus that took us from the gate to the airplane. We were left for more than 30 minutes in this state with the doors shut and the windows largely inoperable. Casually cruel and inhuman. Never fly easy jet again."
Cons: "Before getting to our gate the guy stopped both of us. One carrying a backpack and myself carrying 2 small back packs. Combined, smaller than most people's luggage that was going through. He made us both check in our bags and pay. Every though they fit in the bag size checker thing. Super pissed off the rest of the flight. Hate that worker"
Cons: "Had to pay to store my bag and wasntnclear when I bought my ticket. I did not pay in first flight to Prague"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. In flight service. New aircraft!! I will ABSOLUTELY fly with Easy Jet again!!! Thanks for a great flight!!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything for us (2) was outstanding."
Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "They made me check one of my US sized carry-ons for 44€ but their overhead bins are the same as flights in the US so it would have fit just fine. Also, loaded us on to a bus with no heat and say in the freezing cold for 40 minutes prior to taking us to the plane to board."
Cons: "We were in the 11th row but they asked us to board from the back so we were stuck trying to get past everyone who was trying to get to the back of the plane...doesn't make sense and creates bad traffic"
Pros: "Like? They ripped us off, so there's nothing to like."
Cons: "€70 per person fee for not printing a boarding pass 2 hours prior to departure. No JTR kiosks to even try doing this. The check-in was not avail' via the app. The Skyserv staffer lied to us about sending an email notice & SMS about this. There was ZERO flexibility by the Skyserv staff to enforce this horse$#;t policy, just a hardlined pay the fee or don't fly. Thus we had to double, triple the cost of our flight just to get to Athens. JTR is worse than flight terminals in Iraq & Afghanistan. The flight - who cares, they ripped us off, made our morning miserable, and we'll never fly RyanAir again."
Cons: "The airline only allows online checkin and didn’t notify us through emails until a few days before the flight when we’re already traveling. During international travel, we don’t check emails. We ended up paying almost $200 to checking at the airport. will not use this airline again."
Pros: "Punctuality, quick check in procedures."
Pros: "I got assigned to the seat I requested"
Cons: "I arrived early per their suggestion and was one of the first few people in line for baggage check in. I was told boarding passes were not free, they charge a fee but she would not do it right there. She sent me off to another window to pay, then I had to come back to this window to get my boarding pass, which had a huge line by that time. It cost me an extra 68.20€ and another 31€ for a checked bag. Definitely NOT the low cost airline they claim to be! The flight may be reasonable but they get you with ridiculous fees. I will never take Ryan Air again- they are crooks! Once they’ve sold you a ticket you are stuck having to pay the fees. It’s cagey business practices."
Pros: "Cabin staff was polite, the flight was short."
Cons: "The check in process is absurd. I did not have a chance to check in on my phone beforehand, so I waited in line to check in at the desk. At my turn, the woman behind the desk was annoyed with me for not checking in and told me I had to go speak with another office (though she did not clarify why) and then come back to her. The airport was small, so lines for check in, security, this other office, and those seeking food were all merged into one large group. This second office didn’t open for another 40 minutes so I was thankful I’d arrived early. Standing in line, those around me all figured out why we were there: this was the line to pay extra fees. Apparently if one doesn’t check in beforehand, there is a fee. Ok, I had a few euros left. Nope, it was €68.20 to check in at the airport desk. I took my receipt and went back to the first line, she printed me a boarding pass and I was able to get through security. The fee to check in at airport was more than the cost of my ticket."
Pros: "The price and the female staff were gorgeous."
Cons: "Everything from start to finish at BCN."
Pros: "Crew was nice and apologetic"
Cons: "We waited over 1 hour to board. The airport was small and packed with sweaty people and delays. Seats were tiny and uncomfortable."
Pros: "I like nothing about this airline."
Cons: "No check in email reminder is provided. Had to wait in 3 different lines to print boarding pass, check in, and find out if your bag fit airline restrictions. We were charged 68 euro each to print boarding pass. The airports credit card machine was down and we were forced to go to an ATM and pay in cash. The carry on size restrictions are ridiculous. Your bag will be marked as too large (at a 50 additional euro charge) if it sicks out by 1 inch thickness wise, even if it fits into the box provided. Horrible experience and I will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they were not communicating with the passengers. They had us standing for an hour without letting us know they flight was delayed and you can’t find information online. Also it seems their goal was to charge everyone for luggage and the overhead compartments were pretty empty."
Cons: "40 minutes delay on boarding, then waiting another 10 to disembark"
Cons: "Customer service is really poor , the employees are not pleasant ,I got charge 3 times the price I booked my one trip flight from Santorini to Athens because I did not check in two hours before the flight, when I got to the airport in Santorini it was exactly 2 hours prior to my flight they would not accommodate because all they wanted was making money ,extra money. They saling products in the airplane throughout the flight which in my opinion is really cheap and disturbing ,especially I had a early morning flight. Overall the experience was bad ,maybe it was just with me ,but again that's my experience."
Pros: "lower cost and nice staff."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "RyanAir is THE absolute WORST airline in the entire world!!! Ripped me off of almost $200.00! I will never ever use them again."
Cons: "Worst airline ever. The desk agents don’t have any customer experience. This was both in bound and outbound. On top this they charge additional fees for boarding pass and bagguage."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything else. Boarding process was terrible- felt like cattle. Attendants were not nice."
Pros: "Captain made a safe soft landing, very timely"
Cons: "Difficult to hear the flight attendant , message unclear, too loud and fast Boarding queues not well planned"
Pros: "Very orderly and on time"
Pros: "Actual plan ride was smooth."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you. If that's their business model, fine, but clearly state what fees are charged and outline how they can be avoided. My story is.... none of the "check in online" emails/reminders nor the actual check in process clearly outlines how to retrieve your boarding pass. We arrived at the airport and they made us pay €37 per boarding pass!!!!! Turns out you have to download an app to retrieve an electronic pass. Well, we didn't know that, and since we were in a foreign country whose airport had no WIFI, we couldn't download the app. We were traveling with friends who had carry on luggages. The carry on luggages were deemed carry on to our destination. When traveling back home, they were no longer deemed carry on and my friends were charged €60 per carry on bag. Ridiculous. In summary between check bag fees and boarding passes we paid triple the amount of th airfare."
Cons: "I tried to do the check in on my phone and it showed that i did it. But when I got to airport I found out I did not do correctly and needed to pay 50 euro extra per ticket. It was confusing and I had not been prepare to use internet too much on my vacation abroad. This made it very confusing and difficult to try and do emailing on my old phone. And Not something any of the other flight bookings I made required. Or had such a high charge for not doing. Why isn't just buying ticket enough? Why did I need to do an added checkin, with such a high cost. And the people at airport were not understanding or helpful at all. What a hassle and pain to spend same amount as ticket itself practically."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "This airline actually charged 62 Euros, this was to print a boarding pass--and this was after I was deliberately delayed in getting one and then charged another 62 Euros at the gate because they claimed my luggage didn't fit. This was after I watched the guy before me leave with his bag that didn't fit, and I had paid for priority boarding, which was what their site had suggested when I did the online check-in, which I was charged for. In all, I paid over 130 Euros in total in addition to the money I paid for the ticket. Dispicable!!! a real rip-off!!!"
Pros: "It was cheaper than others."
Cons: "They make you measure your bag about three different times and charge a lot to check. They also do not post this anywhere but the airport. THEY WILL NOT TRANSFER YOUR BAGS FROM ONE FLIGHT TO THE NEXT. You have to go out, collect the bags at baggage claim and repay for your bag to check it onto your next flight. They call this "point to point" I call it an annoying scam for more $$. They also don't let you sit down in the waiting area without measuring your carry on bags. So my husband went out to get the checked luggage and then recheck it, I took his carry on luggage so it would be easier for him to go through security. Ryan air would not allow me to sit down until he came back."
Cons: "Generally, the experience was horrible. Poor service at the terminal, with unfriendly staff, no proper instruction about what to expect in terms of all the hidden fees for bags and other items, and an unorganized boarding process. The plane itself was clean, but very cramped, and the process of forcing random seating is just totally meaningless. The flight is already so overbooked that there is no chance any seats would be left unfilled, yet you split up couples, families and friends by forcing them to pay for assigned seats. Very poor customer service. There are many who say the money saved is not worth the hassle if you are not flying alone, and I agree with that. The one good thing I can say is that there were no problems with the baggage handling, but again, this is to be expected, not applauded. Poor quality service, Ryanair, as evident by the fact that your own employees were voicing their complaints to several passengers about the company. This should really be improved, but given that they are not under any significant competition, and people need a way to get to the islands, it is unlikely this will happen. I hope that my negative review, as many others, will force the management to make necessary changes to improve the service provided."
Cons: "The check-in was long, lots of standing in cramped spaces, and the rep wasn't friendly or helpful. The website was difficult to utilize and app wouldn't download. It doesn't make sense that you must pay 30 euro before you get to the airport and it seems as if you are checking in. But then you find out you have only paid for luggage and not checked-in. Every time I went to website to check-in got diverted back to main check-in page. So, I had to pay 63 euro for them to print. T boarding pass which is absurd! I ended up paying double what I originally paid. I would not fly them again And would recommend that people just pay extra $50 or so for a better quality of airline, seating, customer service, and fees explained up front. These outrageous surprise fees are crazy!"
Pros: "Seating was not bad. However it seems they made no effort to seat couples together."
Cons: "My flight over doubled its cost when I got to the airport because I was not able to check in or print a boarding pass beforehand and had not prepaid for luggage. Not sure how that adds up to 208 extra euros when my flight cost 160 euros. I do not have an international phone plan and was not able to do this on my phone but so far have had no issues with getting a boarding pass and luggage completed at the airport. And the service there was terrible. There was no order to the line, people kept pushing in and they would just take them ahead. Also the manner of which they dealt with customers was very rushed, rude, and impatient. This is the second review I have written in my life because I don't feel the need to usually, but I wish I knew this beforehand and wanted to share."
Cons: "THE HORRIBLE POOR SYSTEM TO HAVE TO GET OFF THE LINE TO HAVE TO GO PAY FOR OVERWEIGHT, THEN COME BACK TO COUNTER, THEN TAKE YOUR OWN LUGGAGE TO ANOTHER AREA WE ARE NOT USED TO THAT KIND OF LAST CENTURY SYSTEM IN THE USA YOU HAVE A LOT TO LEARN ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE, THERE IS NONE... I WILL NEVER FLY WITH RYANAIR AGAIN (NEITHER THE 34 OTHER PEOPLE IN OUR GROUP)"
Cons: "Check in process at airport was sheer chaos. Only one check-in agent, with several standing around doing nothing."
Pros: "Cheap airfare, but everything else tanked so you definitely get what you pay for."
Cons: "As a non-EU passport holder, Ryan Air didn't communicate when I would be receiving my boarding pass (answer: 3 days prior to flying). Also, I needed to print my boarding pass because of my non-EU status. I found all of this out last minute and it was a little stressful while I was abroad since printers weren't at my disposal. On the day of my flight, everything went smoothly until they made me check my bag at the gate before boarding because they claimed my bag was too big and wanted to save room for other carry-ons. It's not, I've complied with all the dimensions and weight policies. Additionally, I purchased priority boarding for the sole reason of securing a place for my carry-on. I found all of this out when I was on the tarmac. The staff wasn't nice about it and I was overall irritated by the lack of communication. While I was in flight, the staff kept trying to sell duty-free products such as perfumes, food and other goods. This would have been fine for a bit but they literally filled the airwaves during the 45 minute trip with product announcements and pricing on the intercom system and trolling the galley holding stuff up the air. It felt like I was at a hectic auction house. Really odd and annoying."
Cons: "The actual airport in Santorini is a zoo and everything takes far longer than it should. There are countless lines to wait in and huge inefficiencies in the way they operate. This causes frustration but Ryan Air only added to that tenfold. They nickel and dime their customers for everything including charging 62 Euro for in person check in. They then charge for overweight and oversized bags but these are based on their unorthodox weight and size restrictions. The worst part of all of this is that after going through 3 lines, you then find out your bag is too big and are forced to go back to the gate agent to start the process over. The flight left late because of these delays. This airline is a joke and I would not recommend flying with them to my worst enemy!"
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "We didn't check in early online so we were charged $120+(two passengers). We are on vacation with extremely limited and generally useless internet access. Charging is 120+ for checking in is an obsurb and unethical business practice geared toward taking advantage of travellers with limited options. We showed up 2+ hrs early and the checked baggage attendants shows up about an 1 after we got there. The checked bags process is a big mess. We barely made our flight and were charged 120+ for checking in at the desk. Checked bags at one counter, payed at a different counter, the attendants were late, dropped checked bags at a different counter, required to check a bag that we have travelled all over the world with, and then they curbside check other passengers bags of the same size."
Pros: "Love the dual boarding process extremely efficient"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have water"
Cons: "We didn't have our boarding passes, so they charged us 30 euros each to print boarding passes and then we wanted to check our suitcases and we were charged 60 euros each. So our original cost of the 2 tickets was a reasonable combined 110 euros, but then they hit us with an additional 180 euros for suitcases and boarding tickets. Felt totaled screwed over"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Pros: "The flight time is very accurate for both return flight. The seats are made of leather that are very comfortable. I will take Ryan air again in my next flight."
Cons: "Online check in or you are charged 45 euros, boarding passes must be printed or downloaded on phones or an additional 18 euro charge per ticket. Check in baggage very expensive."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Crying baby throughout flight."
Cons: "The Greek ATC strike cancelled all flights for 2 days but my flight on Monday had not yet been cancelled although my flight out of Athens on American was cancelled and replaced with a much earlier flight so Monday on Ryanair would not work for me. There was no way on earth that I could get in touch with any human or even online Chat (no one available - ever). The website would not let me make a change - not even to reduce my luggage from 1 bag to zero. No refund because they show me as having flown on the flight! Tried faxing headquarters and no response. Wow what a total rip-off!!!"
Cons: "Last minute online check-in notice, if you miss it you have to pay a $45 fee (per person) upon check-in. First luggage is not free either ($45?), Boarding took two hours of waiting in line."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "simple steps to guide passengers; for example sign with arrow where bus will stop or where passengers will board will help a lot"
Cons: "This airline sent an email indicating that security at the Santorini airport would take 2.5 hours when in reality it was Ryan Air's inefficiency that took that long. I've never had a boarding process take so long, be so inefficient, and the crew be so lacking in customer service. They also were on the PA for almost the entire 50 minute flight trying to sell products which was irritating at best on an 0825 flight. Fly another airline out of Santorini...Ryan air was terrible and the hidden costs for check in and bagggage are ridiculous."
Pros: "Very good nothing bad"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "Everything! Unorganized, customer service was horrible, so many extra fees, lost luggage along with our friends that lost there luggage. No, direction on where to go for checking in."
Pros: "Cheap ticket prices. Left on time and landed on time."
Cons: "They have fees for absolutely everything. They don't transfer checked luggage, so basically just don't check luggage if you're using Ryanair. Also be sure to print off your tickets, otherwise you get charged a lot extra. And they can't do any of the billing at the bag check desk - you have to go to a separate line for a separate desk. In summary, RyanAir is okay IF you print off your tickets and IF you don't have any checked bags and IF you have zero questions or concerns for them and IF you don't want anything from them at any point. Their tickets aren't cheap enough to warrant such terrible service."
Cons: "over charged the amount for luggage by almost 100% than promised. absolutely chaotic operation and staffs. not a bit concerned about customers needs or comforts."
Pros: "The actual flight was good. It was smooth and quick."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay almost 140 euros more for extra weight in my baggage. Since I was on vacation, I bought items for myself as well as for friends and family. This made me exceed the 20kg weight limit by 5kg for each check in bag. I wish I flew with Volotea back to Athens from Santorini. I flew with Volotea from Athens to Mykonos, and prior to my flight, they allowed me to buy an extra 10kg per bag for 10 euros, which saved me a lot in baggage fees. Ryanair did not give me that option. DO NOT BE INTICED BY THE LOW PRICE. THEY WILL GET YOU IN THE END. They are the Spirit Airlines of Greece. I will NEVER fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight was on time, they are like a bus service in the sky."
Cons: "Ryanair will price gouge you at the gate. If you show a mobile boarding pass but they decide they want to see it on paper, they will charge you a ridiculous fee to print out the pass. If you want to add a bag, they will charge you over 2x the fee stated online. They know they have you at the airport already, so they can charge whatever they want. Don't bother trying to reach out to their customer service afterwards, they are half-robots that send canned responses that don't really apply to the issue you're trying to explain."
Pros: "Nothing positive to review."
Cons: "We arrive to the Santorini Airport at 6 a.m. for a 8:10 a.m. flight. The first issue that we experienced was a charge for checked bags over 20 kilograms, the initially fee is 43 euros with an additional fee for each kilogram above 20 you are required to pay 9 euro. After shuffling our bag around, we paid the 43 euro. Although we had electronic tickets, they tried to make us to print the tickets for 18 euro. After we worked through that, we proceeded to our "gate." Shortly before our flight, they delayed it in 10 minutes increments, then 20 minute increments until the departure time was rescheduled for 10 AM. Once 10 AM arrived, the flight was delayed again from 10 AM to 5 PM. At that time, I left security to speak to a representative of Ryanair and she informed me that she GUARANTEED the flight would depart at 5 PM. I proceeded to ask her that if it did not, if she could immediately provide me a refund so that we could take the 7:15 PM ferry to Athens for our departure flight to the United States. She agreed she would. As the departure time approached for our 5 PM flight they once again delayed. We immediately went to receive our refund and she informed is that because it was not canceled, she could not provide a refund, which was not what she had previously told me. We then decided to take a cab to the port and purchase tickets for the ferry. Shortly after we left, we were told the flight was delayed time and time again until at least 1:45 AM. I'm not sure if the flight ever went out or if it was ultimately canceled. I would never recommend flying Ryanair. The only positive after 12 hours in the overcrowded, rundown, Santorini airport, a 20 Euro cab ride to the port, and 5 hours on an extremely turbulent ferry boat, Ryan air did refund our ticket and baggage fees. They did not refund us for any other expenses. Avoid them at all cost."
Pros: "Receiving an e mail telling us to arrive at least 2.5 hours before flight...Ryanair representative didn't arrive at the check in counter until 1.5 hour before flight."
Pros: "Almost on time performance"
Cons: "Baggage fees are horrendous. This is the Spirit Airlines of Europe. Unless you are traveling very light, use another airline, it will probably be cheaper when you account for the fees."
