Pros: "Not much! Boarding was a nightmare, nobody knew which was the gate and actually they never put it up on the depatscreen. I felt like cattle!"
Cons: "Get organized! Let the passengers know the gate, board by zones instead of a cattle call 45min. before boarding and having to endure the pushing and shoving during this time. Getting in an airplane where people are trying to find a place for their belongings, not finding any and clogging the way."
Cons: "the connecting flight was missed because of a delay in the first flight. i got a different flight with a different airline (sas), they were not informed that i paid extra weight and window seat. i am very unhappy! not to mention that the whole purpuise of my trip is gone, because i a will arrive to copenhagen five hours late for the meeting i was supposed to hold with my fans! i will never fly with egean again!"

Pros: "While we have some ratings of 1, 2, and 3; over all we gave Aegean a 5 because of the excellent accommodations they made for my wife who is handicapped. They went out of their way to make sure she got wheelchair assistance, and lift assistance up to the airplane.."
Cons: "No entertainment and the food, although free, was basic doughy bites of something I couldn't recognize."
Cons: "Too much of uncontrolled loud talk between passengers above 25 - 30 yrs old on either side of aisle at night 10 - 12 PM without even thinking that other passengers are around. Flight attendants could have been courteous by asking them to keep the noise low. My baggage did not arrive for 4 days in Cairo and no one was responding to calls and even went to airport twice . offices were closed during day time . Last day before leaving with the help of a travel agent I was lucky to get my luggage. There was almost a brawl at airport as people were unhappy because their baggage did not come from tel aviv to cairo. Very poor handling of delayed baggage. Not even a call from the airline. Not sure if it was offloaded in Tel Aviv or Athens."

I want a full refund for our 3 tickets. Our names are Bernard , Judith and Max Levin. We were suppose to leave at 5:30 am and arrive at 7:30 am. Instead, we lost the entire day and did not arrive until late afternoon . This is not right what the airline did to us. I want a refund from our credit card."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Luggage was not included in the price of the ticket- had to pay $ 40.00 for each suitcase/bag."

Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous. Flight arrived on time despite late takeoff."
Cons: "Reading light and entertainment system did not work the entire flight despite repeating attempts from crew to restart system. This is a 12 hour flight and with out overhead light and / or entertainment, one cannot do much. Could have been good also if there was wifi, like other airlines have."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The plane was falling apart and there was no Ac. Dirty plane too. I was surprised how poor it was."
Pros: "No, the crew wasn't amazing, and no, the seats weren't super-comfortable. Nothing especially good about this flight, but it did take off and land safely, which is the main thing."
Pros: "Crew, service, clean. Free wifi."
Cons: "Nothing . Perfect flight."
Pros: "The seat was not super comfortable.I was grestful that I sat next to a very nice person."
Cons: "The vegan food wasn't very tasty.There was a very limited choice of entertainment.The staff was excellent;very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I had a good experience purchasing my El Al ticket through Kayak. I was able to select my seat--exit row seats at no extra cost! (although the ticket was admittedly expensive). El Al itself was fine. Service was fine. Food was fine for airplane food. (The bread was actually good, much better than the food on America airlines in general). El Al is known for their tight security and we certainly experienced that. However, I found myself NOT annoyed by it. Because I and my traveling partner were not Jewish or Israeli, we were singled out and interrogated with extra questions. This doesn't sound good but it meant we didn't have to wait in the regular line and kind of got the VIP treatment. We were treated very nicely. Someone went out of their way to get us a seat while we waited for them to inspect the dust particle samples on our wallet and shoes. TSA makes my blood boil but the security through El Al was somehow a pleasant experience. Overall, I was satisfied."
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the crew particularly friendly."
Pros: "Comfort Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food bad taste Small tv screens Bad quality"
Cons: "Delay, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Seating atrocious. Considering there first. Was given row 40 then at boarding was moved to 55. 6 rows from back. As domeone who suffers epilepsy and cancer and other health issues it was unpleasant sitting amidst lots of noisy children. I asked hostess if there were two seats up front was told “absolutely not” during flight i went and sat at back on crews seat just to make it easier was told to get off not permitted. Then i gave up. I fly a lot for work but wont be flying Thai again. Sorry disappointing. Ps I told crew member anout health issues and she was not interested. So cheers."
Cons: "Storage is too small for trolley or even a computer bagpack"
Pros: "Crew and boarding and price"
Cons: "Charging got coffee is a bit much. NO foot room"
Pros: "It was my first flight with El Al and would do it again the attention of all the stewardess was excellent above all their attitude to please passengers."
Pros: "the part I liked was that the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "other than the pilot doing his job, the experience of flying on this flight (operated by Arkia) wasn't up to any basic standards. this began when the boarding started - we were escorted to our busses which was to take us to the plane itself. however there was no bus. apparently the bus was right around the corner but its perfectly aligned stop near the doors was hindered by a truck that took about a third of the spot. so for some reason instead of simply allowing passengers to walk 3 meters, we had to stand in a small inclosed area for about 15 min with no seats for the older people. once we actually boarded it was chaos. people stuffed their luggage in the overheads in such a way that they didn't close, couldn't find their seats and we're stuck in the isle waiting for others to find a place for their luggage. this happens, sure, but there was no staff in sight to assist and instead they were on the microphone telling people to clear the isle and sit down, like we're on a bus... why not have people board the plane in groups and areas? the bus did two rounds of bringing people to the plane anyway, why not do this smartly and devide passengers into boarding groups, for our and the staffs ease? Finally everyone were in their seats and the plane took off. this is a very short flight of 45 min. and I understand it's a low cost company but during almost half of the flight you just hear the staff on the speakers reading out commercials, offering to buy cigarettes and whatever, telling how they have the best prices(!). finally we land, and instead of requesting everybody remain in their seats until the doors open, like the staff does on every single flight I've ever been on in my life, the guy on the mic says some stupid joke. TLDR : the whole flight felt like it was operated and staffed by teenagers, and not the responsible and bright kind. I am very happy we arrived safe because the staff made me doubt the pilots abilities as well. nothing to say about the passengers, they're israeli so anyone who has flown with them know what it feels like. just put your headphones in, it'll be over soon."
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "The seats were so tight I felt claustrophobic and I'm only 5'4". The food was not very appetizing."
Pros: "Left exactly on time. A new and comfortable plane"
Pros: "Free bottle of water + sandwich - on a 2 hour flight. Usually you get no food on many flights these days. Sandwich was Kosher. Choice of chicken or Tuna."
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Cons: "To small plan"
Cons: "CHECK IN TOOK VERY LONG TIME"
Cons: "I didn't ply . I did check in . Then they ask me to pay 70$ for my baggage because it's nut El AL it's different compani - up . In the email it's say I have 1 free baggage. I was were upset so I didn't fly . I will be were happy to get answer from kayak . Thank u BTW I fix all my ticket whit kayak . That what really neck me upset"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on board was pretty good."
Cons: "I am always treated like I'm a bad person since I'm not Jewish. However, this time I was expecting it, so I wasn't surprised. However, the planes are SUPER out of date and there were only a few channels and on the way to Israel most of them were in hebrew. For a 12 hour flight on the way back, there wasn't really anything to do since the 4 movies they had just kept repeating themselves and I didn't really like 2 of them."
Pros: "11 hr flight Business and 1st class were full, so we decided to upgrade to premium coach. There was plenty of leg room, however you are right beside the bathroom and the galley so don't think about resting cause the lights flash the whole trip"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Pros: "It was FREEZING. I have never experienced. The like on any airline. It was like sitting in a refrigerator for five hours- made it a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "on our way back' from Prague to TLV the ground crew decided that the "rules" for baggage has changed. they charged me for one "Trolli" suitcase because they desided that camera bag "counts" as suitcase . BAD experience. Won't fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "Nothing was particularly good."
Cons: "ElAl canceled my return flight from Tel Aviv with little advance warning and no reason given, I suspect because of underbooking. They successfully rerouted through Boston, but then messed up re-ticketing in Logan. Food edible but unappetizing. Ancient 767 with no seat-based, on-demand movies (they played on ceiling-mounted screens). No Wifi. Customer service on phone had huge hold times. Personnel were not available between flights. Will not fly again."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work at my seats on both legs on my round flight."
Pros: "The flifht was not fully booked which obviously had a positive impact on crew and service"
Pros: "Food was fine, Accommodations for collecting the garbage should be sooner so passenger can get out of seat . Beverages offered were a plus."
Cons: "Seats were very crowded and tight. Passengers should not be charged for preferred seating."
Pros: "I had purchased a flight ticket to leave china on the 10 January and that was clear on my ticket. Once at the areport in chengdu ( after a flight from Tel Aviv to Beijing and Beijing to chengdu) I was told that my flight to Sydney was leaving on 11 January. I had to stay in chengdu for an extra 26 hours and not 2 hours 40 as it was clearly mentioned on the ticket I have purchased. I feel I was cheated and I am not satisfied"
Pros: "the crew were trying to do a good job."
Cons: "el al changed the aircraft at the last minute. check in and boarding were very late, slow and stressfull, as they kept kicking people out of the flight beacuase the aircraft was smaller."
Cons: "My flight was operated by American Airlines but it wasn't clear to me on the e-ticket so I went to elal terminal. By the time elal staff realized I wasn't on that flight it was too late to get to AA so I missed my flight"
Pros: "Plane ride was quick, relatively smooth flying and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding could be handled better by organizing people into groups by aisles starting from the back of the plane. The flight was very late due both to weather issues but also due to time spent boarding as it was a huge free for all loading buses and people waiting while people in front rows situated themselves while others waited to go to the rear. Loading in some order from back to front seems it would save some time."
Cons: "They told me i Didnt had a Ticket to fly they said i needed to buy another flight which I did"
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "Food was horrible and was down to one option by the time the crew got to the back of the plane. Security for this airline is ridiculous and the staff are incredibly rude."
Cons: "when buying with Kayak, one can not order a seat in the airplane. the flight was full and i had to wait until every body boarded the plane. i waited 2 hours for it. it would be nice if you can send a link to the official site to choose a seat or a reminder to do so 2 days before the flight. thank you"
Cons: "Elal changed the airplane to a tiny plane run by some charter company. The seats were tiny. No legs pace and the next passenger had half his body on me. El-Al is complete disgrace and I hope never to fly with them again, which is a shame, since I am from Israel. In any case, I paid full price, and received something worse than I would expect from any low-cost company. El-Al should be ashamed."
Cons: "We got to Barcelona about an hour before the flight to Charlotte. There were 50 of us. They put us on a bus took us to the plane had us wait on the bus for an hour. Told us we couldn't get on the plane and we needed to get new tickets. It took 4 hours to get our backs and new tickets and the customer service was terrible they didn't want to help us."
Pros: "Was a very bad and negative experience. I fly btw Israel and NYC about 5 times a year, I will not fly again with El Al because of the terrible service and lack or respect for a plane full of 200+ customers."
Cons: "Plane left Ben gurion 7 hours late. No apologies offered. Zero customer service. No snacks or food or even smallest attempt made to improve the experience. Pathetic and dumb way to treat paying customers."
Pros: "The stewardess were very sweet and tried to get it working for us"
Cons: "The lights above our seats and the screens did not work at all during the flight. The screens were not such a problem as the stewardess gave us ipads, but the non working lights were very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight was late. Old aircraft. Very little space between the seats."
Delayed by 40 mins, unclear why. No information given.
The flight was delayed, the aircraft was changed last minute and my partner and I got separated, though we paid for the emergency exit seats. Accidentally I spot it and then it was sorted out.
Too many hours of delay ( 4)
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Let me know by mail to check in before I got to the airport and save me 35 euro"
Cons: "Lower the aircondition temp, it was hot in the plane during flight"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Leg space, cabin bag allowance more than 5 kg. Water at least to be served onboard a long distance flight."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats no conmfortable."
Cons: "Every time the same problems. Bording we have to wait almost an hour and then all the people have to wait for the bus in a very Small place(like animals) then at the bus... waiting in a full one untill someone says ok to ride.."
Pros: "Fast and smoothy check in"
Cons: "After arrival to budapest not platformy ready and waiting over 10minutes"
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."
Cons: "You must check in few hours before the flight. Checking in at the airport will cost you 35€. Besides that, the boarding took almost 40min and the seats are not comfy at all. That said, i would rather pay extra $50 and fly with normal company."
Pros: "Overall experience was good. Boarding was fine and onboard crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and there is not a lot of legroom, especially if you are over 180 cm."
Pros: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."
Pros: "Once boarding started it was very fast and flight left shortly after"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Application instruction on baggage hande king and que to boarding."
Pros: "Good airport . Punctual flight ."
Pros: "On time without any delay"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process took far too long. We were standing at the gate for what seemed like an hour. I'm not sure exactly why we were delayed in boarding the plane. There was no explanation."
Pros: "I called flight network and was put on hold for about five minutes, simply to get an answer to the question of the baggage allowance - I didn’t see it anywhere when booking the wiz air ticket. They told me that I was slowed one checked baggage and one cabin baggage that would be charged about €40 if it was over 30 kilos (which it was not). At the airport wizz air said that I had chosen online booking (which I had not) and therefore I had to pay a €30 fee. Also they said I had no checked baggage allowance and was charged an additional €150 !!!!"
Cons: "That I wa given false information that cost me a huge amount of money, And that the booking page does not make it easy to add baggage information."
Pros: "Service, smiling and attention to details."
Cons: "No kosher food."
Cons: "Did not fly. They wanted $100 to check my bag. I flew another airline."
Pros: "I liked how the crew on the plane worked. Very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the tedious boarding process when we were all herded into a very confined space. Also there was a cabin baggage issue that came up that might have been avoided if the new policy would have been made more obvious during the ticket purchase process."
Pros: "On time, cabin crew, ease of boarding and amount of bags I could take with Priority Boarding"
Cons: "My seat hadn't been cleaned prooerly before I got there and if I hadn't done it myself, I would have someone else's chocolate all over the seat of my trousers. Also, the bathroom floors were really gross, to the point I had to roll uo the legs of my trousers so they didn't get wet when I needed to use the toilet."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The borsing from terminal 1 is should be highlight The man in the check in and bording wad not nice at all. He didn't answer any question. They took our hand bag. We couldn't take it to the plan and no one explaon why."

Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"

Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays. Polite crue. Easy boarding."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "On time boarding, departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Better than Ryanair."
Cons: "Seats were horrible. Narrow, no leg room and awfully uncomfortable. Worse than easyJet."
Pros: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Cons: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Pros: "Price and schedule. Going on time with no delays. Good value for money."
Cons: "Very hard on baggage policy"
Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."
Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"
Pros: "Cabin Crew and Pilot did their best"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and landed in Birmingham instead of Luton, due to Luton being closed at midnight"
Cons: "There was a mix up and the Wizz Air website did not work. Therefore, I couldn't check in a get my seats booked. I also could not prepay for my luggage so they overcharged me at the airport and had an attitude about it. My luggage was given three different prices quotes. I am very upset their website didn't work and they ripped me off at the airport."
Cons: "Was delayed on tarmac due to security error, not their error, but they seemed unwilling to at least give people complimentary water or coffee. Cheap airline they are!"
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage and tickets that were not disclosed. The check in was incredibly disorganized. No help was provided with problems."
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport 2 hours before departure, I was not aware you can't checkin at the airport and need to pay 30 euros for it. The treatment and the attitude from the personnel at the check in counter was rude, they were short and unkind The staff member in charge of charging for checking was incredibly slow, there were 4 people in line including me and it took her 40 minutes to charge me the 30 euros This was after I already stood in line for the ticket for another 30 mins I almost missed my flight due to their poor handling"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no free water"
Cons: "Lots of hidden charges."
Cons: "The flight is late from tlv to luton and from luton to tlv."
Cons: "We arrived at a field in Israel with 2 backpacks and did not charge us extra, but on the way back they decided to charge us at the last minute for the same cases we had arrived with. Nothing we said helped and the attitude was cold and hard. The flight was good"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Very late. Disorganized boarding. Seating and shortage of luggage stowegev"
Pros: "I use Wizzair very often .flight is always good.Pilots and crew are very well experianced.so if turbulences there is still trust in flight crew .today is very misty and cloudy in London .Very good landing in these bad conditions.i want to Thank all team of the crew."
Cons: "Turbulences.It is sad that wizzair charges very high cost large cabin bags (especially on holidays time is bags different price than other months.)but other companies as Easyjet and ryanair allows one big and one small bag for free on board"

Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours when the boarding du"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Give free water"
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."
Pros: "Helpful staff especially with disabled access."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife despite booking months ago. Very cramped conditions on a very full flight meant it was uncomfortable Bought our own food onboard as realised everything was charged for. Even water."
Pros: "Priority members get to jump queues when boarding."
Cons: "Long queues for boarding for non-priority members"
Cons: "Poor service and delays!"
Pros: "It was very simple and expedited"
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."
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
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: "very friendly cabin crew..... went above and beyond when i needed some assistance highly recommend and will definitely be flying Ryan air again"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Flying shop"
Pros: "The crew traveling out of Rome was pleasant is the only thing positive I can say."
Cons: "-we paid extra for priority boarding and did go through the line first to board the shuttle to the plane but then they had everyone else from the overbooked plane crowded like sardines into the same shuttle. It was a waste of money. -traveling to Rome on Ryanair we took samsonite carry on luggage onto the plane with no problems. Leaving Rome we were told to recheck our luggage size. The wheels stick out a little and they made us pay 100 Euros to check our bags. Once on the plane we saw many passengers with luggage and bags much larger than our own and did not have to pay to have them checked. We were the only Americans on the plane. -The seats do not recline and are at a 90 degree angle which is very uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight. -the crew traveling to Rome was very rude. -the seats were dirty with food and crumbs before I sat down and there was trash and food on the floor. It is as if the plane is not cleaned routinely."
Cons: "Ryan Air charged my husband and I FIFTY Euros EACH for not checking in online before coming to airport. However, they were very sneaky and misleading, bec. they sent us an email saying that we must check in 2 hours before flight time -- here are their exact words: "Online check-in is up to 2 hours prior to departure. " so we got up at 4:30 am to get to airport exactly 2 hours before to check in online, but online check-in was closed. then at the counter they told us we had to pay 50 Euros each, extra for not checking in online."
Pros: "Good service easy flight"
Cons: "Problems: 1. very difficult to understand what was and was not included in the price of the ticket when purchased. Basically, later I found, it was a $50 ticket for the price of $90 because I had to pay for a checked bag, about $40 per person. Rediculous! 2. The next surprise came when I tried to check-in early while on vacation, for my flight to Athens. Apparently another $50 if we didn't check-in early (before the airport). My computer wasn't working on the website for some reason, so I was stressed. Fortunately able to check-in using my husband's computer. But then I was stressed because we couldn't print-out the tickets and I thought that they would charge us another arm-and-leg. They didn't, but the poor couple next to us in line had to pay the $50 extra per person for not checking in early - Rediculous! 3. There were about 5 long lines to go thru for check-in, basically showing/reshowing passports...it took forever! And so crowded. Rediculous! I will NEVER fly RyanAir"
Pros: "Very orderly and on time"
Pros: "departure time"
Cons: "no water to drink"
Cons: "Our flight ended up almost 3 hours late which caused us to miss our flight home. When we asked for assistance and explained our situation they simply said there was nothing they could do. She even jokingly shared advice on a place to eat since we were probably not going to make it home that day. This delay cost us another night in a hotel and a couple thousand for tickets on another flight the following day. When we complained to the service desk at the airport they offered no help, we actually had to go to airport information to find out how to file a complaint. I highly recommend you choose another airline."
Cons: "We had to pay $200 since we did not check in online!! What airline does that? I went online specifically to pay for my baggage since I had heard they charge a lot at the airport but somehow didn't get the memo or email to check in!! The lady at the gate wouldn't budge even though we literally Che led in 1:55 minutes prior to the flight! Total ripoff!"
Pros: "Kept informed"
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for two hours, and being asked to pay for a bottle of water"
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: "nothing bad attitude , theft by law , non-helping employees , misleading information."
Cons: "i went to airport and astonished that they sent me an email ( during my vacation ) saying that I must check in online ( I didn't took my vacation to read emails especially when the email is sent the same day i will travel ) , i went to pay the check in fees ( which are very high ) , the system refused the master card , Visa card and the employee refused the 500 euro bill , i was compulsory to draw cash from ATM machine , when I came back to counter the employees refused to check me in saying ( you are late now !!!!!!!!!!!) , i was late because of your way of working and misleading customers. as a result i lost more than 1500 euro to get new tickets from Thessaloniki-Athens then Amman and getting a hotel for additional night and taxis ...etc . what made me laugh is that my refund was refused by Ryanair . this is a joke company and I'm thinking in suing them ."
Cons: "Was told we would be charged 62 euros per checked bag at the gate because they seemed to big even though a flight to Crete on exact same plane the bags fit easily in the overhead compartment just four days earlier. Then even with priority check in the Santorini airport just let everyone do whatever. Why pay for priority if you are just one big group? Terrible experience this time."
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: "I understand this is a budget airline; however, they trap you with non-stated fees. I received an email letting me know that if I did not check in online in advance, we would have to pay €50 each to check in at the airport. So I checked in online for my entire group in advance and when we arrived, we were told we had to pay €18.60 each to print our boarding passes because the airport wifi was not strong enough to refresh and pull up our online passes. I wouldn't even be able to change the outcome in the future because there was no printer available at our rental house and apparently only one printer for the airline. This is just completely outrageous, especially for a 30 minute flight. Avoid this airline at all costs."
Pros: "The plan is clean, the crew are welcoming"
Cons: "It's my first time i travel with Ryanair...and maybe it will be the last one... i bought the tickets and i paid for it.. because i didn't print it hard copy.. I PAID FOR ANOTHER TWO TICKETS... it's not logical.. maybe this is your policy but take a small extra charge not 100%"
Pros: "We may be able to find cheap tickets with Ryanair but this also comes with horrible service. They charge 3 euros for water ( in flight) and if for some reason your phone stops working and you have not printed your passes they charge 45 euros to print your tickets. We may be able to find cheap tickets with Ryanair but this also comes with horrible service."
Pros: "The flight was inexpensive, the leg room was adequate, and the flight crew generally acted professionally."
Cons: "The www.ryanair.com site was not functioning for many hours. I wasted a couple hours trying to check in. The website is also poorly designed with conflicting information."
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."
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Ticket counter associates, horrific! They don't have a clue. Their app wasn't working to download tickets and associates wanted to charge me €18@ to print a paper ticket. Ridiculous! I'll take my business to Aegean or Olympic airways next time as well as my friends and family."
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: "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."
Cons: "Email said arrive 2.5 hrs before flight. But Ryanair check in did not start until 2 hours before flight. Long line of people waited for 30 minutes before Ryanair employees began check in."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and because of that we missed our connecting flight, had to take another one the next day, drag my kids through the airport in Athens and went through a lot of stress. Ryan air does not take any responsibility for their own mistakes. That is unacceptable, we won't ever use Ryan air anymore and we'll also spread the "good" word about them."
Pros: "Cheap fast"
Cons: "Small comp. no food entertainment good crew"
Cons: "I booked my ticket while on vacation in Greece, 3-days prior to departure. Upon booking, I was informed that I should print my boarding pass upon arrival at JMK. When I arrived at JMK, there were no Ryan Air self Serv kiosks so I had to go to the check in counter. After awaiting in line, the staff was very rude in telling me that I needed to go to another terminal and pay SkyServ 18,6€ to print a paper boarding pass. Then, they gave me a receipt at SkyServ and I had to stand in line again and deal with rude staff again to pick up my paper boarding pass. The fuel per passenger cost less for the short JMK to ATH flight than the cost of printing my paper boarding pass. Should I start packing a printer in my luggage?"
Cons: "See above"
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."
Cons: "I understand this is a budget airline, but there is zero transparency regarding fees for luggage. My fiance and I were forced to pay more for our luggage than we even paid for our tickets! Additionally, the processes in place to pay for luggage are completely inefficient and time consuming. If you can avoid traveling with this airline, I would suggest you make sure to book with someone else. Absolutely worth spending a bit more money to avoid the experience we (and almost everyone else on our flight had)"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Hidden fees and bad attitudes from staff!"
Pros: "the crew , arriving on time , good boarding speed"
Cons: "the landing :)"
