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 like that the flight left on time even though I had received a message earlier in the day that the flight was delayed."
Cons: "The extra costs associated with flying EasyJet.. the flights aren't that inexpensive to begin with and then every little thing costs extra.. it's kind of annoying."
Cons: "Seats small, staff rude, paid 180 euro to check luggage"
Pros: "Getting off and not returning thru easy jet"
Cons: "Getting off"
Cons: "The whole thing that it takes off from the old terminal was just awful, every step took twice the time and eventually came running to the plane only to discover that it's going to be late in take off 1 hour late! It ruined my plans! There was no compensation and the flight was not cheap! I had to pay 50€ for the suitcase and 9€for food while for the same price two weeks ago I had a flight way and back with a different company for the same price including food and a suitcase. Never flying with easyjet again"
Pros: "Crew was nice, flight good"
Cons: "You changed the airplane and didn't tell your customers. I did't have my seat and we had to wait 5-10 min before getting seated. We were already on the plane when we discovered what was happening, blocking the aisle. Very unconfortable"
Pros: "We got to Milan eventually"
Cons: "We bought four tickets online and when we got to the airport they told us we only had two tickets and the other two passengers were on stand-by. This was completely unacceptable because we needed to be in Milan by 1pm for an international flight leaving st 3:40pm to New York so we could get home. The manager who came to help was worthless and said it wasn't his problem if we missed our flight from Milan to New York. The customer service agent at the desk was so much more helpful and ensured that we received four tickets. Apart from the near panic of not getting our flight it was also delayed 1 hour 15 minutes so we were worried about being late for our flight in Milan"
Pros: "I did not like anyt services"
Cons: "It is not good compamy"
Pros: "Easy and smooth boarding, on time"
Cons: "Cannot lean backward the seat, no complementary drinks at all, laggege cost too expensive"
Cons: "When going from Milan to Paris, easyJet allowed one personal item and one carry on - the standard. However, on my return, they did not allow my personal item (backpack), which they then charged 60 euros for. Never flying with them again"
Pros: "All good. You just have to download the app if youre travelling without a printer."
Cons: "The buying luggage was not clear enough"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Normal experience."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and I was pre bumped. I had an important connection in Milan so it was stressful waiting to see if I'd get on the flight. No one knew what to do if I didn't get on."
Cons: "One bathroom was broken the entire flight leaving just one open and long lines to it"
Pros: "Staff was kind"
Cons: "Very unorganized. Too much delay."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late which meant I nearly missed my connection despite running through the terminal in Milan."
Pros: "The boarding and the treatment our bags got was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Just like the emails I got suggested, I checked in online pretty early. The seats I got were the absolute worse located right in front of the toilet in the last row. Trying to get any comfort with no option to lower the back of our seat and bearing the noise of people using the potty - that was a bit too much. Needless to say our seats back home are even worse since they are on the parallel row in front of the door to the toilet. If all that isn't enough we wanted to drink some fine whiskey we brought with us from the duty free and the bottle was confiscated by the flight attendant, who claimed that I cannot drink any alcohol that wasn't bought from the plane. In the seat next to me, by the way, was a guy eating sushi he just got before boarding. That felt absurd and unjustified."
Cons: "Last minute awareness of only being allowed one bag on plane. Had to check last minute which was costly"
"Too many hours of delay ( 4)"

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: "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: "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: "Prices on in flight purchases"
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculous, check in lady had no idea what an infant is and how their own app works. Suggested us to use the e-gate with an infant and angrily put us at the back of the cue. The infant wanted to breastfeed..."
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: "1h 45 minutes waiting for luggages in Bucharest Otopeni. Still not delivered."

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."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was ok"
Cons: "Not much of a food choice.."
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
Pros: "The flight was overbooked so they took my wife of the flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed by more than 2 hours, additional 40 minutes in the plain before departure. At least 30 minutes until doors opened. Overall huge delay that totally killed my business day."
Cons: "Horrible web/check in experience, 2hour delay. Inexistence of entertainment or comfort. What else can be said ?"
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: "2 hours delay. Not much one can do about this. The flight was good in general, 3* only due to the delay."
Cons: "2 hours delay. Not much one can do about this. The flight was good in general, 3* only due to the delay."

Cons: "Was a bit late"
Pros: "Price and schedule. Going on time with no delays. Good value for money."
Cons: "Very hard on baggage policy"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. I chose premium price so no issues at check-in. Staff was fantastic! This was my first WIZZ Air flight. It will not be my last!"
Cons: "Boarding did not provide order as everyone crowded to the front. Needs better lines."
Cons: "Black group seemed to be singled out for more than one bag hand luggage but others were not. They were the only black group on the plane. Others let through with more bags 1ith no question."
Cons: "So cheap."
Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"
Cons: "The approach of you, all together, should improve, be friendly, more can do attitude...Was not good at all, think to fly again with Wizz or NOT!"
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."
Pros: "Facilities are terrible! It was like stepping back in time! To use this as a stopover, is a poor decision because this airport does NOT meet the brief and does NOT warrant being used for passengers. I’ve been very polite here, I have more choice words I could use"
Cons: "Nothing! To learn that Wizz Air ‘allowed’ cabin size is so tiny was really shocking! With All the other budget airlines, easyJet, Monarch & even Ryanair my cabin would’ve been fine. This is the same hand luggage I’ve been using using for many years."
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: "Extra prices. Should have took a better airline and pay more. Came out the same. Make sure you tell guest to check in online or they will. Hangs you $50 to check in at the airport"
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: "Friendly staff members"
Cons: "They didn't have blanket and it was very cold.."
Cons: "Because we booked through Kayak/lastminute it was impossible to add luggage - so cost of one suitcase was same as cost of flight!!!!"
Pros: "It was simple, every thing was fast in the airport."
Cons: "Small airplane it was a bit choked."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Cons: "Be honest"
Pros: "Fast and easy on time flight from PMO to FCO"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good leg room."
Cons: "Magazine racks on back of seats would have been good."
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: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
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: "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."
Cons: "Poor check in Service ... bullying. Paid 40 Euro each for 3 extra bags .... website extremely unclear. Plane had to return after taxiing to let ‘unwell passenger ‘ off. No other ongoing explanation... took an hour to get him off ! Felt quite unsafe ! Had to ask if they retrieved his bag ."
Cons: "Their staff not helpful on desk Asked them the question how to get boarding code pass barely answered"
Cons: "So disorganized. Lots of staff but only one worker. The only staff member that was helpful was the lady at the check-in desk."
Cons: "2 hours delay"
Cons: "Tutto in ritardo anche afumicino abblamo aspetato oiu di 2ore per le bagali.la partenza in ritardo,e poi abbuamo viaggiato piu di 4ore"
Pros: "Got me to my destination alive"
Cons: "Departed late"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "The guy who was checking us in mumbles the entire time. Couldn’t understand a word he was saying and why we were delayed 50 mins. There was supposed to be an open seat next to me and I even paid for priority but someone got their friend to sit next to them and she took the entire arm rest that she didn’t pay for. Overall I didn’t enjoy my time on RyanAir. I will need to looks elsewhere as I don’t think I can ever fly with RyanAir ever again."
Cons: "Went well took a long time to get luggage at claim"
Cons: "Flight delay, everything costs money, even a glass of water. I never will fly with them"
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: "The price was cheap, as long as you don't add any extras (like choosing your seat)."
Cons: "You need to check in before you arrive at the airport otherwise you'll be charged FOR CHECKING IN. Also apparently it is normal for passengers to line up at the gate an hour before boarding, apparently because there is not enough overhead space for everyone. So unless you pay extra (no surprise there) to board early, you'll be standing in line for a good hour. I like a cheap flight as much as the next guy but Ryanair just takes it too far."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "delay of 1:30."
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: "I love Rome...it was truly amazing but the airline was horrible, service was the worst."
Cons: "Overall this airline has been the worst airline I have traveled with. From the staff being rude and yelling at us in front of customers to the airplane seats. I understand it's a cheap low price airline but come on."
Pros: "Great landing!"
Cons: "Very crowded and little room"
Cons: "The whole checking in process was ridiculous!!! You can only check in on your phone otherwise everything is fee. There are no self check in computers. I'm flying international so don't always have wifi available. Charged to check in my luggage. Which is horrible. It's not even a flat fee for the luggage it's by waeight and I had to go back and forth to a different counter for weight, then to pay, then back to drop off the luggage. One person at the counter should be able to do that one transaction.. it's such a waste of time. I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "They canceled our flight and we have not received a refund plus the 250 euros per person owed to us."
Pros: "The flight was basic, without added perks such as a screen on the back of the seat in front of you, but it also got us to Rome safely. For that, I thank you."
Cons: "The flight was delayed one hour by an unknown issue and boarding staff did not communicate at the gate. Some of the passengers were boarded then the rest of the passengers were left standing in line at the gate for a prolonged period of time. Boarding staff did not address the passengers while we waited. We did not know how serious the issue was while we waited, if we were going to be allowed to board, or if the flight was going be cancelled. Just before boarding the issue was attributed to a passenger from the previous flight who was in a wheelchair and required assistance. Would have been nice to know while we waited."
Pros: "Priority Boarding"
Cons: "Riding the bus to/from aircraft parked on the tarmac."
Pros: "I like that there's cheap flights from Catania to Rome"
Cons: "They were so late, almost missed my connecting flight - NO one is there to help or tell you anything. It was beyond stressful"
Cons: "Marketing services"
Pros: "we are very unhanpy with this airline .cheap no good thing!"
Cons: "they cannot charge too hight bags fee for internantional guest! zhis is pitfall to us!"
Cons: "The plane didn't arrive so we couldn't take off. Our flight was delayed more than 1 hour."
Cons: "I check in my flight from my phone and add extra luggage ( more $$$ on top what we already pay from our flight ) and I get the confirmation. The day we flew back and the check in station in the airport they didn't find out online check in but they knew we add extra luggage. The ladies that helped us was rude and disrespectful. Waited customer service ever. I'm the end we had to pay $60 each to get in our flight. It was a ripped off. I'll never fly we them again."
Pros: "We flew Rome to Barcelona and we're scheduled to come back to Rome and then fly back to the states. Besides being able to change our flight to go from Barcelona back to the states (with Norwegian) due to changes in plan, we would have considered booking through another airline. Yes, it really was that bad! Food was fine but you have to pay extra for all of it."
Cons: "My bag touched the top of the bag screening box for carry-on but otherwise fit and would have fit FINE in the overhead compartment. But NO. I got to pay €50 instead and have them check it. Literally for touching the top but still fitting inside fine. Worst legroom ever. Terrible. I had a middle seat and elbows digging into me on both sides. Awkward! Online check-in automatically selects for one person to be in the front and one person in the back unless you pay more to sit together. Unless you pay the fee you cannot sit with someone you're traveling with. Bathroom broken on flight and only one stall available. Long wait! No pouches in the seat in front of you-- kind of annoying... Staff seemed burnt out and ready to get off the plane. I totally could empathize. Maybe it was because we were heading to Barcelona, but major party crowd who was pretty rowdy on the flight. People standing in the aisles blocking the flight attendants, people sitting on each other's laps some and being loud-- kind of like being on a party bus. Will for sure be telling friends to avoid this airline no matter the price-- not worth saving a few bucks for the discomfort and hidden fees. DON'T FLY this airline if you have kids. Your 5 year old will probably get a middle seat at the back of the plane while you're in the front unless you want to pay extra for everyone to sit together. DON'T FLY this airline if you have American sized carry on luggage. They don't care about your American sized luggage. Whatever the baggage guidelines are, subtract some because that's what they REALLY mean. Get the tiny hard case Euro suitcase if you want to carry on a bag. Otherwise the fee is very high! DON'T FLY this airline if you are over 6 feet tall or have long legs. Ok, they let you stand most of the flight anyway. You'll feel better on another airline. If you can spend an extra 15, do it and AVOID this one."
Cons: "I didn't like that the originally fairly cheap price became higher and higher to provide minimal comfort and service. 30-35 euros per bag, paid ahead of time, is a ridiculously high price to charge in addition to the flight cost. Middle seats unless you are willing to pay more. Not even a drink on the plan unless you are willing to pay. etc etc. It is EXTREMELY inconvenient not to provide a paper ticket. I was unable to print a boarding pass as I was away from home. At the check-in I was not given a paper boarding pass, and then when I got to the entrance area, my phone would not work to show the boarding passes electronically. Ryan Air's website was impossible to navigate to find my boarding passes, taking me literally about a half hour to figure out. This delayed our entry tremendously. On the flight out from Barcelona to Rome my son was allowed to carry on his skateboard plus one small other carryon. On the flight back, he was NOT allowed to take the board through security, and was told he was too late to check the board. This turned out not to be true, but we were not informed of this at check-in, again seriously delaying our boarding. Luckily we had arrived at the airport way too early, and this worked to our advantage given Ryan Air's incompetence. The next day we flew home on Swiss Air - what a pleasant difference to fly on a real airline! No issues, lots of help, etc. etc."
Pros: "Lots of legroom. The crew was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was late and boarding was delayed by an hour and a half which caused us to pay a late check in at our hotel. Boarding was not an easy, seamless process. They made me put my backpack up top, but at least it gave me lots of legroom. Having a mandatory check in several hours before your flight to avoid a fee for "normal" check-in seems not customer friendly."
Pros: "Flight was on time departure."
Cons: "Very rude crew"
Cons: "Awful experience. Could not print boarding passes online and tried to pull them up at the airport, but there was no internet connection. Staff was incredibly rude and tried to make us pay $50 to print on site. Finally downloaded the passes (which, by the way, we had to obtain at least 24 hrs in advance - an easy email to miss). "Priority boarding" (also paid extra for) was a joke. Everyone had to get on a bus to arrive at the plane, and no order was kept, so it was basically a free-for-all to board the plane (lots of flying elbows). As a result, the overhead space by our seats (second row) was filled and we had to put our bags much further back (again defeating the purpose of "priority boarding"). Upon arrival to our destination, there was zero indication that our checked bag would be at completely different terminal. It took going through lost and found and 2 information folks to find the correct baggage claim area (and another go through security). All in all, a terrible experience. Not worth the extra $$ we may have saved. AVOID!!!"
Cons: "I was charged 55 Euros for the same luggage accepted from Rome to Palermo by Ryanair. The door man was determined to overcharge me no matter what.Since the flight was max, half the suitcases where shipped direct so his overcharge didn't matter.I am Italian/American and I was singled out and U will never fly Ryanair again.You get me one time and I get you 10 times. That one suitcase was more than half the cost of the flight. I do not like being ripped off. You should be ashamed of your strong armed tactics. Not Happy Sam Morreale."
Pros: "got to Rome 5 hours late"
Cons: "This flight was about the 5th leg of our European trip. I attempted several times to complete the early check in on the website so that we would save the fee of checking in later at the airport but I was unable to. We left our hotel 4 hours prior to the flight departure because the metro ride was 1 hour to the Barcelona airport. Next, we waited in line at the airport and were then told to go wait in another line and pay 50 euros each for the airport check-in. Then, our flight was delayed so we got to spend a whole day of our vacation in the Barcelona airport! What a waste of valuable time for us. Next tour of Europe I will gladly spend up to $400 more for a reliable flight on a different airlines. Time is more valuable, especially vacation time!"
Cons: "Tardiness! I have taken 2 different flights and BOTH were late! Also, the terminal is located a large distance from the main terminal AND finally, you r not told your gate number until less than an hour before. UNACCEPTABLE. I do not want to wander and shop in the stores and restaurants. I want to go directly to my gate and sit and read or text. The baggage limit is a giant money grabber as well. You folks are gouging your customers."
Cons: "Over crowded. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The comfort of the plane, it was over crowded with no air on the plane. Getting on and off the plane took entirely way to long."
Pros: "I liked that it got me where I wanted to go. The staff was nice."
Cons: "I had to jump through hoops to print a boarding pass even though I had Ryanairs app with a mobile boarding pass. 3 hours of my Sat and Sunday in Barcelona were spent searching for an open copy/print shop. Would have been nice to know more than 48 hours before my flight. I get to the airport after not finding a print shop, expecting to pay through the nose for them to print the tickets for me and they say I didn't even need it. They supply the boarding pass. Wow. The boarding is a joke. They don't board in zones, so the line was literally 180 people long. I wasn't even in the back of the line and it still bothered me. Now let's get to the plane, again, staff and pilot were great. The seats have NO leg room. I have long legs and it was miserable. No seat back pocket to put things. No recline on the seats. The aisle way sagged everytime someone walked past me, leaning my seat toward the aisle. I know, I know, you get what you pay for. This flight I paid for a lesson. That lesson being never never never ever ever ever fly Ryanair again. I would gladly pay a little more money to save my poor knees from being in that position again."
Cons: "Pilots approach and landing speed too fast and erratic. Flight stewards unfriendly. Will NOT fly with again."
Pros: "They wouldn't let me carry on my beach umbrella, not cool. Otherwise fine."
Pros: "no hassle at boarding"
Pros: "Flown many times, no frills but they get you to your destination."
Cons: "Changed the gate in the last 5 mind before the gate closed - shreds the nerves when you are catching an international flight!"
Pros: "The plane arrived on time to Rome. That's about it."
Cons: "Not much TO like. The biggest problem was having our luggage LOST for 90 mins after arriving at Rome. How does the plane lose our luggage on a DIRECT flight? And in that time items disappeared from one of our suitcases. Specifically, $60 U.S. And a set of Bluetooth wireless earphones. My fault I know for putting cash in a checked bag, but I KNOW they were in there when we left Barcelona. Just a huge lack of respect by their employees.But having to wait 90 mins to retrieve our luggage was just uncalled for. Also, having the flight crew acting like street vendors trying to sell items during the flight was very low class. I know you get what you pay for, but it felt very cheesy and unprofessional to have them moving thru the plane hawking wares."
