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: "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: "They found an aisle seat for me even though I said it wasn't all that important....very nice of them, plane and service were great, stewerdesses were very nice. Plenty of leg room!!"
Cons: "nothing, all was very professional"
Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Pros: "I liked the landing that put me out from my misery of the awful experience"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again , 2 hours of security at 5 AM in israel ! And 2 and half hours of screening us in italy just because im a Jew and my wife is not , theu seperetaed us and ask us question to proof our 7 years of marriage for an hour and a half ! Then open our bags , and went throw item item for another hour , touching our underwear and dildos infront of everyone in the airport, hello!!!! Humiliation!!!! "Lucky" we came 3 hours before our flight , obvieslly had no time to shop at duty free. The food (blinches if you can call it food) was descusting! Nasty , took 1 bite and it was nasty , The airplain was old and was playing 1 movie in Hebrew, what the hell !!!"
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "It was almost 2 hours delayed from the original departure time!!"
Pros: "On time fabulous service great processes"
Cons: "Should serve beer"
Cons: "That the passengers left such a mess and I felt sad, over all a great fought."
Cons: "El Al has a draconian carry on limit of 8 KG, which they enforce strictly. The also do not allow a personal item in addition to the carry on. This is extremely inadequate and will prevent me from flying El Al in the future."
Cons: "Check in was inefficient. I was assigned a seat and I was flying with my mom and we asked to be placed together and they said we'd have to pay to sit together. Boarding started on time but then on the plane was a disaster. It took an inordinate amount of time to board and get everyone seated. I was sitting the back of the plane and there wasn't enough overhead cabin space for bags since they back areas were filled with other equipment. The seats were horribly uncomfortable - between by legs getting smashed because of non existent leg room and with the chair itself just being awful. The room was so inadequate that the person sitting next to me was basically in my space unintentionally. There was no entertainment for a 4 hour flight which was awful. It was overall one of the worst flying experiences."
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Dinner was a sandwich"
Pros: "צוות הדיילים היה נהדר, סבלני, חייכן ומסייע"
Cons: "מערכת ההקרנה היתה מקולקלת. הסאוונדנלא מסונכרן עם הוידאו. לכן אי אפשר היה לצפות בסרט"
Pros: "Mechanical problems, grounded in montreal for 4 hours, no food or water or air conditioner. Antique entertainment system. Sad part is I live in Montreal and I wasn't allowed to get off the plane, I had to sit on for an extra 4 hours and then fly to Toronto only to get on another flight back to Montreal, because of dumb Quebec beauracy, And pathetic élal incompetent management."
Cons: "The check-in line and counters were not divided by flights, it was chaotic, and I almost missed my flight. The crowd was disrespectful and the staff not helpful. Only when it was clear that people would miss their flights, did a staff member help them to get through. I almost missed my flight, and had an unpleasant experience. I will make every effort to avoid flying with El Al"
Pros: "I dont normally complain and almost never give a negative review but to many things went wrong on my round trip flying elal. Firstly i took a backrow seat hopeing for some more space unfortunately the way the plain was set up there was an obstical behind my chair and i could recline there was no leg room and the seat was dirty i fell asleep and missed all the meals and the screen on my chair was broken so no entertainment. On the flight back i made sure to get a exit seat but i was aganist the window and the bottem of the plane door gave me less room than a normal seat the tray is stowed one the side of the seat and it was in a filthy compartments sorry guys i dont ever want to fly with you guys again 9 hours of this was just to much."
Pros: "Food was ok, cabin crew friendly, price is reasonable"
Cons: "1. Boarding was through the bus under the rain 2. Departure was delayed because bus driver couldn't get to the boarding position due to poor coordination with ground crew 3. Total flight delay was 1.5 hours (missed connection) 4. Some passenger announcements (including connection information) were made only in Hebrew (had to ask for English translation) 5. The only El Al lounge in TLV closes at night (even though no "business hours" posted) and you can't get there if you come early or have long connection in TLV 6. El Al ticketing desk in AMS refused to help with changing ticket caused by _delay of their flight_ and sent me to the connecting airline (I had single connecting ticket)"
Cons: "Took an hour to get stewardess's attention. Finally when did get attention, was told not during being served that someone would return after. No one ever did. Called over supervisor to notify that 6 of thirteen video channels had sound only, no picture. She said she would see what she could do. She left and never came back. There were 2 aggressive passengers on the flight that I saw and they got what they asked for. Is that what this airline would like to pride themselves in improving. Other issues too, but do not want to state a list of grievences. " Tired and disappointed.""
Pros: "The food was very good. The seating in coach was fair."
Cons: "It is a nuisance having to take a shuttle bus from the terminal to the plane and climbing stairs carrying carry on luggage to board."
Pros: "The seats are all worn out... we had special food ordered. On the way there it was messed up. On the was back they didn't give it to me all together."
Cons: "Everything. Never fly El Al again. I will tell all my friends who will tell all of their friends"
Cons: "The light was out at my seat, & I couldn't read, & the staff said they couldn't fix it. There was no menu for the tv, & the majority of the movies were in French with Hebrew subtitles, unwatchable for this English-only person. This was a 15 hour flight. They fed us a tiny tasteless breakfast as soon as we got on & brought nothing around for seven hours! Just before they served dinner, I walked back to ask when they were serving & found they had tuna sandwiches in the galley, However, THEY NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT!!! I fly to Israel twice a year, & this was my first unpleasant trip with El-Al. I think I deserve compensation. Thank you. Harriet"
Pros: "Food was okay; make any diet"
Cons: "The worst part of this whole ordeal is that we paid for an El Al flight but were serviced by a completely different airline; very disappointing and deceptive. The airline "Prestige operated our flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The air plane and the crew were NOT el Al. The airline Prestige had an older aircraft with no TVs, entertainment for kids, the crew was not El Al for an overseas transatlantic flight VERY poor...on the return flight from Tel Aviv the same airline and aircraft operated by Prestige airlines was utilized and this time the ordeal turned into a nightmare. During take off from Tel Aviv as the plane was gaining speed to go into the air one of the tires blew and we almost had a catastrophe on the runway. We were on the runway for 2 hours and then deboarded; waited in TLV airport for 8 hours before taking flight on an actual El Al plane. The point that needs to be made is to verify that you are taking an actual EL Al plane NOT a partner airline....the airplanes on an actual El AL fight are accommodating and offer good service, food and entertainment (which is much needed on a transatlantic flight; especially if traveling with children)."
Pros: "I like the safety procedures that were performed before boarding the plane. I feel safe on el al. The boarding was on time. The 777 was MUCH better than the plane on which we flew to tel Aviv. That was flight 28. We were dreading getting on the flight home, but this was much better."
Cons: "The seats do not give enough leg room. I'm only 5' 3". I actually have leg discomfort even now, almost 24 hours after the flight. also, the hot meals are okay, but the cold meals are not very good. My whole family left most of that meal on their trays. the flight on the way to tel Aviv, flight 28 was poor in every category. So at least, this flight number 27 was better."
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: "El Al is the main airline at TLV airport, yet the line for check-in for them is the worst-organized line i have ever witnessed. They should do what every other airline is doing to improve queues, instead of abandoning passengers to a chaotic process."
Pros: "Friendly crew Helpful crew Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Had a 12:30 AM flight and when I arrived at the airport they told me the flight was 4 and a half hours delayed with no explanation I later found out they are at the bottom of the list for on time flights I wound up having to pay for an additional day of parking at the airport. Boarding was disorganized. Everybody just rushed ahead. It was a mob scene with no calling by rows or groups."
Pros: "Once we were on the plane, the ride was very smooth and in-flight staff were very nice."
Cons: "First of all, I had a terrible time checking in with the App - it did not work and so I had to check in at the airport. However, if you don't check in with the check-in kiosks at the airport, you get charged extra. I have an older passport that does not have the capability of scanning at a check-in kiosk. The staff was unapologetic and despite the app and kiosk problems, made me pay to check in. Additionally, I tried to add bags on the app the day before the flight. Because the App wasn't working, it did not record one of the bags I wanted to check and we were forced to pay $70 (twice the online price) for that extra bag despite the fact that it was Up's fault for having a malfunctioning app. I understand this is a budget airline, but I have never had problems like this with EasyJet or Ryanair staff."
Pros: "Nothing, it was the worst flight of my life"
Cons: "First, El Al contracted the flight out to Israair so all the boarding passes had to be reprinted. It appears that there was a change of plans also. We boarded the plane 30 minutes after the scheduled departure. Then, we sat on the tarmac for 90 minutes waiting for "permission from Kiev to take off". Never heard of that before! When drinks and snacks were served, the cart never stopped in my row, it just kept going! Lastly, the crew was unable to control the passengers (religious Israeli's going to a religious site in Ukraine). Constant standing in the aisle even when the seatbelt sign was on. Upon touchdown, half of the passengers left their seats and took their luggage from the overhead bins and made a rush for the front door. With the plane sitll rolling on the main runway! A serious safety violation. This really was a flight from hell."
Pros: "The free water lol /I came late and I made it its a good system"
Cons: "Passangers were allowed to take more hand luggage than indicated, making everything crowded. Beef was sweet, so it served as dessert, too. And then the toilets were off limits becasue men were standing and praying, and the area was "off limits." It's been ten years since I last flew El Al - and the sort (under four hours) flight reminede me why I've been avoiding it. Will continue to do so"
Pros: "Honestly everything was fine but one cabin crew member, I wish I would have taken her name!"
Cons: "All I wanted water and she made such a big deal about it and it is really unacceptable behavior from any one providing service. What I remember of our conversation: Me: "Can I have some water?" Employee: "I just can't right now, I just can't!!" (a little rude) Me: "No worries when ever you can" Employee: "You can come and crab it yourself" (okay tone) Me: "Well you said you would be right back with a new bottle of water" Employee: "Well I did! You must have not been here! Maybe my friend came here too!" Me thinking: Where did I go? to the park that is in first class? I hope the airline reads this and addresses it!"
Pros: "relatively comfortable seat; on time flight."
Cons: "The entertainment is limited and not personal. Security check before check in was terrible and too long."
Cons: "40 minutes flight without food or any kind of entertainment- nothing to say..."
Cons: "The seats were made out of wood! Their back felt just like a solid surface. The food is terrible. They served a tiny trey with all the meal condenced on it and the main dish "pasta bolognese" wasnt all that good."
Pros: "Enough leg room even in economy"
Cons: "Entertainment is antiquated. Should be in a museum"
Pros: "The actual boarding functioned ok and despite a late departure we got to Brussels ok. They also announced our boarding gates which helped."
Cons: "The check in was shockingly bad. I had pre-checked in, but that did not help. I got put in a line for people who had not checked in. It was not possible to ask to be in the right line. Most of the people behind me were moved to another line while we waited for 30 minutes. When I mentioned the ground crew, who had long conversations with the people checking in, he said it was not their fault at all. It was not impressive."
Cons: "I am handicap, I travel with a scooter. We let them know months in advance and still they did not plan or assist. My scooter was not brought up in Brussels or DC, I refused to leave the plane in DC until they finally brought it to plane. They sat me in row 38...I can only walk a few feet so the airline failed in every aspect...epuc fail. I will never fly Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "The food was okay but thats the best thing I can say."
Cons: "There was someone that pooped themselves, another that threw up, and the flight attendants were so rude. They kept spraying stuff in the air and even those of us sitting, so much in fact I had an asthma attack and had to use my inhaler. When I told the attendant, she said "theres nothing I can do," and kept spraying the air with this awful spray. The flight harmful to my health, exhausting, and uncomfortable. BEWARE OF THIS AIRLINE! I would have preferred not gone on my trip then fly this airline!"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Not business treatment, the boarding que, the seats, the food"
Pros: "Crew were super helpful and friendly. Food was above average for airline food. It was all on schedule. On my return trip - knowing already the confusion with the exit row seat which I explained here, they switched me to the correct exit row without a problem or charge."
Cons: "I tried to book exit row seats online. The seat map would not load, so I called the number suggested. Had a long a confusing conversation with a woman who did not seem to understand what an exit row seat was. I booked seats, but my card was never charged and I received no email confirmation. I tried the website again and this time saw the seat map. Completely misleading. The real exit row is the row IN FRONT of the marked exits on the map. I chose the row which looked like an exit row, and on boarding found that I was in the row behind the exit row. The flight attendant took a photo of my seat map print out, because it was so confusing!!! No wonder the woman I spoke to sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about - she was following the seat map too!"
Cons: "Choice of food was very limited as they were missing the food in catalog."
Cons: "Seat and cabin temperature was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "We got zero offer of beverages during our flight, even a cup of water! Glad we bought our own. It seemed like one of the flight attendants was in a flight with a customer during boarding."
Pros: "Good flight overall- staff lovely"
Cons: "Limited food choices"
Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "Great distance to walk between terminals for transfer"
Pros: "They have the funniest and engaging safety video I have ever seen"
Cons: "no information on the board about delay and gate change"
Pros: "Good value, Staff were polite and helpful. On time."
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The safety instructions movie was entertaining the first time. The crew was friendly overall."
Cons: "Both my luggage items were lost on the way there and one on the way back. No free food or drink although the flight price is not that low."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food was rubbish"
Cons: "It was late both going to Prague and coming back. Then on this flight the stewardess tried to tell me that I could not put my bag on the bin on top of my head - she was reserving it for other passengers! Then she realized that her comment might sound racist (so she apologized), then she told me that I could not put my small bag under the chair. Finally I told her that she is certainly looking for a way to get me off the flight to which she answered "I can certainly find something!!!" Cultural sensitivity is needed with these stewardesses who are racist like I don't understand and I was certainly polite!"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "Lack of complimentary food - not even a snack as far as I can remember - for almost 5 hours flight. Really?"
Cons: "Sardine tin bus transfers from hell."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I landed safely in Brussels."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with seats that didn’t recline, head rests that didn’t move, no in-flight entertainment, no pillows or blankets, and unfriendly and somewhat rude, jaded flight attendants. The most uncomfortable international flight I’ve been on"
Pros: "Good leg space and went on time."
Cons: "Cup of coffee would be nice but this you need to buy and this is STUPID Expensive"
Pros: "Ok easy flight. Crew were great, really friendly:)"
Cons: "Seats to small, food humm? Dubious"
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "It was a small plane with only 1 bathroom which was not available for the flight due to long lines. There was no food or even a drink of water without payment. there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Pros: "I was happy to see that I had a huge amount of leg room on both of the flight legs! - Very comfortable"
Pros: "They had a funny safety video"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. Not only did this mean that I didn't have a chance to rest in Hamburg, it also meant that I had to sprint to get my connecting flight which was on the other side of a huge U shaped airport."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "I'll begin with the order of sequence of all that went wrong: 1. A huge queu while we were waiting for checkin in Rome (waited for more than 30 minutes) 2. The steward didn't agree to take a gymnastics hoop to the aircraft, despite its being super light. By the way, the inbound flight the hoop was taken into the aircraft; 3. We (family of 3) were seated separately, what made a huge stress to our small daughter. 4. There were no AC socket in Brussels airport (there were, but not charging) during transfer. 5. Our baggage was not delivered, which is very unpleasant :("
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Cons: "The flight was similar to a low-cost airline but I was not informed of this when booking. Uncomfortable seats with very little legroom, and food was only available by purchase. Not worth paying the cost of a regular flight for a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "There was a very long wait checking in and boarding and there was no kosher food available on the flight."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Pros: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Cons: "No infotainment screen"
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
Pros: "Liked flight home arrived early luggage on belt quickly fragile parcel looked after and loads of leg room on airbus"
Cons: "Departure delayed for unspecified reasons, most of the passengers like me had connecting flights and it was stressful"
Cons: "I have no words flew not honored and I had to buy a ticket at the airport. Thank you for your service!"
Pros: "Very old planes No entertainment Very nice stewardess"
Pros: "Nothing I could particularly remark on"
Cons: "Travelling out to Budapest our flight was delayed about 40 minutes. We had a connection in Brussels and had to run from B terminal to A to reach on time. We reached the flight, however bags did not make the connection. We received bags next day at hotel. Travelling home, the flight was delayed 1h30m, the gates were shifted 3 times for departure, we had to sprint this time for conmection again B to A terminals. On the flight we were told Edinburgh connection would be rebooked so go to desk, however we made the flight just and so did the luggage, if we had waitied as told to rebook our luggage would have landed in Edinburgh with us stuck in Brussels. Won't be using again."
Pros: "I eventually got home"
Cons: "I didn't get to sleep as I had to spend hours booking a new flight."
Pros: "The fight was fine. No issues."
Cons: "My biggest disappointment was that no one on the flight was informed that ALL the luggage checked in on the aircraft did not arrive in Budapest. Everyone (about 70-80 passengers) stood for a long while at Budapest Airport for baggage pickup, then went over to talk to Hungarian lost luggage personnel to file their baggage. Why didn't the airline tell us upon check-in, or even announce to the passengers on the aircraft that the bags had not been loaded? This would have saved everyone 10 hours later to try to figure out what happened."
Pros: "Overall plesant."
Cons: "No snack not even a peanut."
Cons: "I felt that the crew was unfriendly and saw each request as a burden."
Pros: "very friendly crew. great landing in very windy condition"
Cons: "bad seat"
Cons: "Business class seats were like economy just no one in middle seat. not very comfortable. no entertainment system at all."
Pros: "The entertaiment was fine and the crew were polite"
Cons: "1,The food was bad. I was unable to eat. Simple food would have worked. I chose fish but hardly ate since it tasted bad. Additionally I am allergic to diary products and was not given a chance to express this when purchasing the ticket so I arrived in Rome extremely hungry. I ate at the airport on arrival in Rome, 2, There was no toiletries bag handed out i.e toothpaste and socks to keep us warm. 3. Was surprised that the food was on sale Brussels to Rome. Abidjan to Brussels was free food then mid flight rules changed and the food was on sale on the last leg of the flight."
Cons: "in Brusels They ceep us inside the plane around 15-20 min after landing, the bridge wasn't working and we need to wait very long until they will find and bring normal stairs. Many people with conected flights probably missed their flights."
Cons: "It seems like the crew was happy to fly with out the passengars....."
Pros: "Service, food , time,"
Cons: "Short time between connection"
Pros: "Easy trip. Crew relaxed, short flight."
Cons: "The process of getting on the flight is the most exhausting part: distance to Terminal 1, multiple screenings and checks, then another long bus ride to the plane. The flight itself was is the easiest part at this airport."
Pros: "The frew was nice"
Cons: "When I made the reservation, I paid 20 Euro for 1 suitcase (20 kg.), but was surprised to realize that the payment was not valid for the whole trip (but only for one flight). I had to pay 40 Euro for the flight back. It could be helpful if you'd clarify this as part of the reservation process."
Pros: "There was nothing that I liked about Ryanair airlines"
Cons: "A kiosk center will be easier for check in at the airport. People would not miss their flight or complain about crowdiness. Paying for a boarding pass in absurd. If a person paid for their flight they should not have to pay for a boading pass. The Ryanair App has technical difficulties"
Pros: "Excellent pilots did their job very well, despite bad weather."
Pros: "Thete is nothing really good in low cost flight, so if you are not expecting you will not be disappointed. Recommend purchase the priority package in advance and allowed to bring two items on board."
Pros: "At first. One too we know the flight was delayed about 30 minutes. Then we got the information that the flight doesn’t go the Brussels but Liège. So from Liège we have to finish the travel with a bus 1 hours 30 minutes to arrive at the airport in Brussels. It’s 11:30 so we have to take a taxi 50 euro to the city."
Cons: "The worst was with all these problems, Ryanair didn’t offer any drink or food to passengers."
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: "Off ons time no extras got here quick all I want"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Cons: "Their staff not helpful on desk Asked them the question how to get boarding code pass barely answered"

Cons: "Nothing!! No place for the legs, minimum !!!! No option to move the seat back !! All the flight the light was On"
Pros: "Everything ok"
Pros: "price and schedule were very fine on time pleasant staff"
Cons: "they changed their onboard bag policy was changed several times between our purchase of tickets and flight date , poor policy and customer relations"
Cons: "1. I brought a trolley according to the specifications in the web page and the message sent to me. They claim it was too big, even though it did fit into the box they use to measure the luggage, saying that it fitted too tight, and insisted on my paying an extra 50 euro. 2. They purposely split family members in the hope that people will pay extra to sit together. We did it on the first leg, but then managed to switch seats without extra cost in the second leg. It just required several people switching around."
Pros: "best food and drinks best clubs"
Pros: "Captain had to take emergency action. We didn't know what was going on. It ended up fine, but it was scary without any knowledge"
Cons: "Seat size, riding a bus to and from when we had priority booking. Not worth the extra money."
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."
Pros: "Ryanair was a great surprise. I am 1.79 in height the seats were not cramped, yes they do"
Pros: "Fast accurate on time and proffesional"
Pros: "Good flight, took off on time and landed early. Didn’t get a chance to try food or entertainment."
Cons: "I was informed at the departure gate that my carry-on baggage cannot be brought to the airplane and I was forced to pay 50euro at the last minute for the baggage fee. The ironic part was I have gone through the check-in desk to ask for whether my carry on fits Ryanair standard or not. That was very unprofessional and inconsistent way of handling the issue."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was very delayed."
Cons: "Late , expensive, loud, no leg room seat do not tilt !"
Pros: "departure time"

Cons: "We already paied "name change fee"100euro. But We had to charge 100euro again. I dont understand why they did"

Cons: "It was so hot, we were sick. They kept trying to sell perfume! We all had headaches!"

Pros: "Arrived on time Good food for reasonable prices"
Cons: "Waiting outside at minus 10 Celsius Check in line starting ages before real boarding Very little sitting space Was not cheap - paid 240 Euros for round trip from Brussels to Berlin 6 days in advance"
Pros: "Landed in one piece"
Cons: "Ryanair is a ripoff in every way. Payment for reservation is apparently not same as getting a seat, which costs twice as much as then"fare". Then, my carry on bag, which is standard size ans acceptable all over the world was somehow unacceptable to Ryanair, which charged me $55 at the gate to check it or refuse me boarding. The flight was almost constant attempt by crew to upswell everything from lottery tickets to food and drink. Utterly ridiculous experience. Never again."
Cons: "I you don't check in within 2 hours only. You have to pay extra"
Pros: "Initially the price was 78$"
Cons: "My hiking poles were considered weapons and i forced to pay 35 to check the bag. Just another sleazy way to hike prices up. Never in one single instance has a hiking pole been used in a mano a mano duel between a passenger and flight attendant?,,,ridiculous. Shameless"
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "The guy sitting next to me smelled"
Cons: "Cramped seats and did not recline. While booking, plenty of additional fees are suggested. The most irritating ones: "pay extra and choose your seat so you can sit next to your wife", "pay extra to immediately checkin the return flight, else login again in a few days""
Pros: "Baby pushcar was ready on the taac"
Cons: "Delay of 45 min while sitting in th plane ( with 2 small childeren)"
Cons: "I have NEVER encountered such rude people working anywhere. The staff was impolite and abrasive. I had a question on my bag and they would not discuss with me. I will NEVER fly this airline again. On my vacation in Europe this trip, I flew five different airlines. All other airlines were wonderful - this one, absolutely NO Customer Service from check in to the flight. Staff were irritable. Unfriendly. I was told this is their reputation - horrible customer service and staff as they are a "cheap" airline. I've flown budget flights before - I've never dealt with any customer service like this!"
Pros: "Great value"
Cons: "Switched gates 3 times on delayed flight"
Pros: "EFFICIENT LOW COST AIRLINE. MAKES NO BONES ABOUT KEEPING COSTS DOWN. DEPARTED ON TIME LANDED 15 MINUTES EARLY."
Cons: "ERROR/PROBLEM WITH PREPAID EXTRA LUGGAGE CHARGES. HAD TO DUPLICATE PAYMENT AT AIR PORT DUE TO LACK OF POSTING OF THE PREPAID PAYMENT ON BOARDING PASS. SHOULD CLEAR UP UPON RETURN TO U.S."
Pros: "Arrived 20 min in advance!"
Cons: "The policy for needing to print a boarding pass was not clear and is difficult for travelers who are already underway. Running around paying additional fees and carrying receipts between counters is not acceptable."
