Pros: "Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The window seat"
Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"
Cons: "I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!! After the sleeve was already attached! I can understand when you are in some small airport or flying with low cost airline. But it's Turkish airlines in their home airport! Really disappointed."
Pros: "Avoiding my to go Israel Delta monopoly is fading"
Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"
Pros: "Once on the plane everything was fine."
Cons: "My first flight was changed. Only one email was send about that change. It got lost in some other emails so I didn't see it. But I did not receive any other update or reminder. So I had figure out how to change all of my flights from there to Kansas in the States. All with bad internet service and unhelpful costomer service. And having to deal with two unexpected long layovers. All that to say, sending periodic emails is important especially if the flight had been changed."
Pros: "Smooth flight"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Boarding mess at Istanbul"
Pros: "I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked decent."
Pros: "Spaced seats, kind crew"
Pros: "Better headphones for economy Pillows on seat when boarding"
Cons: "Poor heating/cooling controls, cabin too hot"
Pros: "The attendant at check in was anything but attentive. We asked if the flight was full and she replied with a face gesture that indicated 'no' (it was a 1.50am flight) so we asked if possible to upgrade with points and she totally ignored, spoke in Turkish to 2 other check in colleagues, printed the boarding passes and almost threw them down on the counter without responding on upgrade. We felt too intimidated to ask any more. Also our mileage points for this sector of our travel were not booked to our KrisFlyer accounts so wondering if she did not capture at check in."
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm and unable to adjust any air flow to the seat. Because the flight wasn't full my husband was able to move to a vacant group of seats and lie down so eventually cooled down and got some sleep. Otherwise excellent flight"
Pros: "Food was excellent. Vegetarian meal remembered. Service was good, pleasant crew. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Headphones are really not very good quality. Touch screen difficult to use (not very responsive to touch)."
Cons: "Flight was very late departing, despite arriving on time. No excuse other than simply inefficiency. No drinks offered, during 45 min flight. No headphones given for entertainment."
Pros: "Food is fresh and tasty. Safe landings and overall flight experience is very pleasing."
Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Our bag arrived without the walking poles attached to it. So far (more than a week after the flight) we haven't heard from Turkish Airlines anything about our complaint regarding this loss of baggage."
Pros: "the boarding was fine, we were on time and the staff was pleasant."
Cons: "the food was ok, they played one movie for everyone to watch and our screen was not the best, small seats with no leg room, filthy greasy window i had to clean to look out of."
Pros: "Great chairs"
Cons: "Great flight company"
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding process. Lunch o.k. but nothing special."
Cons: "My husband is 5'11' tall and was extremely uncomfortable because his knees were right up against the seat in front of him. The man on the other side of me was also very uncomfortable because of the same reason. I am only 4'11" and so I didn't have a problem. I would have rated this trip excellent except for the uncomfortable seating. I know this is done to cram in as many seats as possible into the plane, and thus sell more tickets, but from a passenger's perspective, this is a terrible practice."
Pros: "New plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "No choice on the food because the other option ran out."
Pros: "This flight was short and easy. Easy to board. Served an awesome cold breakfast. No problems."
Cons: "No personal screens."
Pros: "I liked my second flight from istanbul to munich, great food, good seats and a private tv"
Cons: "I didnt like my first flight from tel aviv to istanbul, horrible airplane, no place for legs, bad food."
Pros: "The food is always good!"
Cons: "Thry promide Wifi but it didnt work Touch screens- the touch works really bad"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and easy to communicate with. The Food was average, but better than other flights I have taken. The Entertainment system was stellar, new, large screen, tons of choices. This flight really went quickly for me."
Cons: "I had a big problem with the Baggage allowances on this particular flight. I was only allowed 20kg on a long (8hr) international flight, one which I was moving around the world for. If the policy was more like 40kg, there would have been no problems whatsoever and my trip would have been the best I have experienced in a long time. I suggest they improve their regulations quickly to widen their customer base."
Pros: "The flight was good on time and short. The seating for economy was fine."
Cons: "The only negative was the seat assignments at check in were random and all over the cabin for the three of us since we checked in nearly 20 hours before the flight. The Representatives in Turkey told us we would have to get the seats reassigned upon arrival in the US. So when we arrived the flight was fully booked sand they were unable to seat us together. other that that it was a good experience."
Pros: "The meals were superb as was the selection of Turkish wine and spirits, Flight crew was warm and very attentive and the in-flight movie selection was stellar. Can't find a single negative thing to say. I love Turkish Air."
Pros: "The crew and food were good"
Cons: "Overall a bad experience both ways: Flight from TLV was cancelled. 48 h delay. Seats lost. Handling by both the ground crew in TLV and the Turkish Airlines customer service was poor. Plane in TLV parked in Terminal 1 but boarding was in terminal 3. A long bus ride was needed to reach plane. Connection in Istanbul is bad. Lines were long and not orderly. Bad experience overall. Flight out of Istanbul was late. The reading light did not work. The crew was very nice and service was good. Again, luggage did not arrive. This time 2 out of 2 pieces. One piece arrived a day later the second took more than 48 h."
Pros: "Great customer service, great food, great entertainment, and comfortable. Highly recommended."
Cons: "The worst that happened all times I've flown with them was a 40 minute delay."
Pros: "Good short flights"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "The airline didn't let me go on the flight and I had to buy another flight with a different airline. I am asking for a refund. Please contact me Regards Dotan"
Pros: "Delayed for several hours before departure, plane was too hot, there was a glitch in the movies, AND they lost my bag."
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "the food is fantastic. even though the flight was short they still gave us food. In the US they don't even give you peanuts unless your flight is over 5 hours. We loved the freshly squeezed orange juice and the lemonade was to die for"
Cons: "Our luggage didn't make the connection from our earlier flight from Tel-Aviv which is a total pain. We landed at our final destination (Salt Lake City Utah) on Thursday December 31, but our luggage didn't arrive in Salt Lake until last night (Jan 2nd) at 11pm MST. Thankfully the luggage was lost on our way home and not on our way to our vacation, but it is always really frustrating."
Pros: "Food fine."
Cons: "Crew was polite, but knew nothing about what we should do when we landed in Istanbul. Given that we circled for an hour and then sat on the tarmac for TWO hours, they had plenty of time to ask what passengers should do about cancelled flights. Very discouraging. Video system never worked."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude."
Pros: "The flight was ok overall, we don't like to complain :)"
Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"
Pros: "We had tickets for 2150 flight, and they moved us to earlier flight on our request with no additional charge. Everyone was very professional, and flight was smooth, and we even arived earlier than scheduled. Thank you."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew! Very nice people :)"
Cons: "Small plane, broken media pads and headphones. Food was awful."
Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "Again could not fault staff and quality of flight services, luckily space to sleep so fantastic flight."
Pros: "Brisk, efficient cabin crew served food and drink quickly then left us alone to sleep."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 75 minutes "awaiting plane". 20 minute wait when finally arrived at Heathrow for steps down to bus to take us to terminal."
Pros: "I purchased a seat with extra legroom and It was comfortable, the staff was accommodating, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The movies were good - glad it was free and nice selection"
Cons: "US Pre-clearance in Dublin was ridiculous. I don't know what else to say about it. They were even holding us going down the escalator to the actual screening part. It was just one crazy queue to another. Will definitely make me think about ever going through Dublin again."
Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "Food was good. Staff were great. Headphones not the best."
Pros: "Nothing again!!!"
Cons: "Having to fly to LHR to get home, even that flight was delayed. Typical United methinks."
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."
Pros: "Nice Airplane and all good except the service. Can't complain about anything but the unfriendliness of the flight attendants. The food was not as god as foreign carriers but basically OK."
Cons: "The service was very curt and unfriendly. This seems to be typical on United International flights when flying in Coach! I've spoiled myself by flying on foreign carriers who all have MUCH friendlier flight attendants, better food, and no charge for drinks. that would include Air France, KLM, Turkish, LOT and British Airways."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "crew very nice and helpful"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable and food adequate. arrived in newark late and arrived in manchester england late but no problem as no connection."
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"
Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the employees of the front desk don't help anything. The service was worse."
Cons: "The crabbiest crew I've ever encountered - they even barked at each other."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"
Cons: "The gluten free menu wasn't very good, and also there were no gluten free snacks. 1% of the population has celiac, I expected more these days..."
Cons: "Not enough good movies"
Pros: "No entertainment unless you pay, but you can't turn the tv off, so it's playing bright ads in your face all night. Awesome."
Cons: "If you want to feel like you're riding the most cramped Greyhound bus, definitely ride with united."
Pros: "Boarding efficient and latest films available. Price excellent."
Cons: "Food ."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Twelve hours of horrible delays, missed connections, and running through airports due to poor aircraft maintenance and mechanical problems. Will never fly United again if I have a choice."
Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."
Cons: "The food was terrible"
Pros: "They double booked my seat and forced me to sit in an emergency exit row. Pretty sure this is against FAA regulation."
Pros: "More space than El-al. No delays"
Cons: "Food. We ordered 4 special meals and got only one!"
Pros: "United wifi app allows you to watch some film and tv on demand, if you've downloaded the app in advance. Staff nice."
Cons: "Seatback screen the size of an original iPhone, possibly smaller - and no on-demand content to be viewed on it, the movies play when they play. Most TV series available on the app have only one episode. Overhead baggage bins are TINY. Most normal carry-ons won't fit at all in central bins, and some not in side ones either. Expect a fight over them if flight is busy. Large IFE box under every window seat in economy."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "They held the plane due to delays in customs"
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "So we arrived at the desk after a 7hr international flight ready for the final 1hr leg - only to be confronted with "flight overbooked" looking for 9 volunteers - how can you over book a 40 seat flight by 9 ???? So we had an anxious wait wondering if we'd be dumped from the flight - we weren't but it wasn't enjoyable waiting for the flight and our meeting with our grand kids."
Pros: "Comfortable and enjoyable flight, efficient crew without delays."
Cons: "Poor food - even going for the safe pasta option. Very disappointing & not enjoyable."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Your refund or rescheduling policies."
Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Cons: "Because of United's failure in Pittsburgh, I was unable to make it to IAD to fly from Washington to Manchester."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great :)"
Pros: "הטיסה עברה מצויין..שרות מצויין..הופתעתי לטובה..ממליץ"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant and the pilot did an excellent job in difficult weather conditions"
Cons: "The flight was not stocked with sufficient food and had run out of sandwiches by row 3. Considering food is purchased for an additional fee this is surely makes poor business sense aside from being frustrating for passengers on a 3 hour flight plus a delay. Flights were very expensive especially when factoring in that we had to pay to check a bag, to select seats and to purchase food and drink. Worked out as terrible value for money when compared with an Emirates flight to New Zealand."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow Seat was very uncomfortable, it is like they discriminate against tall people, leg space gets less and less by the year"
Pros: "The landing was hairy and I have never experienced a fish tail landing quite like it before."
Cons: "The landing was horrid and Im sure I lost £15 off the cashier for wine and cheddar crackers was like a magic trick gone wrong. Sort your float for each flight and stop making assumptions with short change and playing games."
Pros: "Flight was well organised and lef on time."
Cons: "Rating of one star for food was because we didn't have any and entertainment because understandably there wasn't any."
Pros: "good crew, easy flight, on-time"
Pros: "The food is reasonably priced and tastes good."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and are so cramped you can't possibly take a nap."
Cons: "2 hours delay caused us to lose the day"
Cons: "The take off was delayed too much."
Pros: "Friendly staff, food ok"
Cons: "Shepherded into a small area with very few seats, and anyway, we were held in lanes like sheep! Seating on the plane - narrow and little space between rows. Had to wait quite a while for baggage to arrive."
Cons: "Booked wrong date before confirmation came phoned to cancel was told I couldn't have a refund would never use easy jet again"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in aircraft"
Cons: "Herding of customers like cattle, bus not big enough for all customers. Gate staff rude, generally All border staff at Gatwick were rude and treated paying customers appallingly"
Cons: "Flight late, priority boarding complete waste of money as it was a feee for all and unorganised to board the plane. I was sitting in seat 1f and they had already sold out of the breakfast I wanted to buy? How can that be when I was the first customer to serve. Appalling service Fromm easy jet overall."
Cons: "i had problems abuot paiments and im very anoid with this airline, no peepel to speek to."
Pros: "Exhwusting check on process. 1.5 hours of long lines. Then an unpleasamt srprise of 1 hour and 45 minutes delay. Never again. Giora"
Cons: "New aircraft"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. I was directed towards the rear if the plane so I didn't have to walk town the entire plane. I was offered to check my hand luggage in the hold for free"
Cons: "Flight delay both outbound and return"
Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "seats don't recline no entertainment very noisy fussy babies on board need ear jacks to drown out passenger noise (kids)"
Cons: "missed my next flight and had to pay $2000 for a new ticket."
Pros: "Cabin crew tried hard to sound cheerful and be efficient"
Cons: "One word: DIRE. No information on the delay, we were left standing with no refreshments and tired kids for 2 hours, a good part of which was outside the terminal waiting to walk over to board the plane. Staff didn't bother to say anything, didn't know anything, offered no help, no refreshments or food, and there were only a couple of benches for people to sit on (this was the covered walkway outside the terminal building, offering no shelter from the heat). easyJet showing once again that it actually manages to be worse than Ryanair!"
Pros: "I take this line to try a low cost trip."
Cons: "It's a trap, if you sum all the fees and extras, then you realize that it's no low cost. The personal are rude, offensive, the plane is uncomfortable, the takeoff and landing were messy."
Cons: "Easyjets own App cancelled my flight and the rescinded this cancellation. Thus I travelled to the airport and found it was cancelled again. Worse; initially no rescheduled flight for >5 days. Had to buy a seperate ticket to a different airport."
Cons: "After the landing we had to wait a long time in the plain. the announcement was that due to how the suitcases where loaded into the plain if all people will get off the plain might tip."
Pros: "Very fast boarding, crew is efficient and plesent"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 1.5 hours. They said it was the weather, Thunder storms. On August? I doubt it."
Cons: "Didn't like cabin crew on the homeward journey ."
Pros: "Once on board, evertything was ok"
Cons: "Easyjet lost my babys baggage and the stuff didn't cooperate with me or emphatize at all with my situation"
Pros: "I was offered to check in my hand luggage for no extra fee"
Cons: "apparently easyjet sends wrong check-in instrucions to all passengers and so we had to shuttle between terminals, face extremely long queues etc. check-in took from arrival to arriving at the duty free lounge 1.5 hrs(!)"
Pros: "Price, staff, safety.."
Cons: "1h late"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient when we eventually boarded, could have been more organised."
Cons: "No food left to purchase on a flight that was delayed by 90 minutes, gate staff allowed oversize bags onto aircraft causing issues for crew and passengers, could have been an easy £45 for EZY. No boutique service on flight."
Pros: "Got me where I'm going safely"
Cons: "Old plane that made noises Limited everything Seats did not recline No entertainment"
Pros: "On time, welcoming crew on board"
Cons: "Request to put small handbag into half empty flight bag is just petty. If easyJet insist on checking customers through and then holding them in a pen, they should provide facilities/seating - we are not cattle but that is the impression given."
Pros: "It's nice to have some snacks and food available"
Cons: "There was no fresh food available that didn't have milk or meat. That is, nothing for those who don't eat animal products. Only peanuts, pot noodles, etc."
Pros: "I was a happy with the flight and also with the price!! Thanks a have nice day. I hope in the near future I will use this airlines again!!"
Pros: "On time fantastic !"
Pros: "very nice crew. relatively new aircraft. even so the chair doesn't recline it was very comfortable."
Cons: "very long delay (however it was weather related and the airline could do nothing about it )."
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: "On time departure and arrival. In flight service. New aircraft!! I will ABSOLUTELY fly with Easy Jet again!!! Thanks for a great flight!!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything for us (2) was outstanding."
Pros: "Very comfortable experience. Boarding was easy. Check in was convenient. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing in particular to dislike."
Pros: "Easy and smooth boarding, on time"
Cons: "Cannot lean backward the seat, no complementary drinks at all, laggege cost too expensive"
Pros: "Crew on board friendly."
Cons: "Not easy for seniors with medium computer skills. Took me ages to checkin online. I got help from a youth! Check in at airport i did not know had to pay for luggage. Checkin staff talked down to me and had to go to bank for euros. Still not friendly and sent me with my backpack to odd size luggage. Overall did not find EASY and will probably not use again. Be more senior friendly and understanding please."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, attentive and helpful where possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes but there was almost no information about this other than the EasyJet app, even the airport boards provided misinformation. A last minute gate change brought upon a stampede, the flight was overbooked, and whilst not EasyJet's fault, 20 children on a midnight flight did not make for an enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Excellent value. Will use again"
Cons: "Wasn't sure if I needed yo purchase for my checked baggage."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more 1.5 hrs without any compensation whatsoever. The flight was a late one that was supposed to take off at 9:40 and land at 10:10. Instead we landed at Heathrow at almost 12am. The walk from the plane to the baggage collection was approx. a 15min walk which is too long for such a ridiculously delayed flight and then when I did arrive at the baggage area, my luggage did not arrive until 5-10mins later. I then had to travel to the south terminal of gatwick to get a train. By the time I reached the train station it was already past 12:30am and the train to London bridge that I usually take was no longer running. The only option I had was to take a train into the city then take a night bus all the way home or take a taxi. So I took a tax costing me more than double the amount I would have paid taking train home. This was without any sort of compensation or real explanation for the cause of delay. This is the second time I have taken an easyjet flight from Basel and it has been delayed. I am highly dissatisfied with the overall journey. As a note, the company should consider having blankets on deck for the evening flights in the winter when it is cold. I asked for one and there wasn't even one on deck."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Good quality low cost airline for a short 3 hr flight. Easy boarding. food ok."
Cons: "too crowded and many drunk people flying. seats are made for midget size people. prize of food a bit expensive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours when we were INPLANED. Two hours in plane after the boarding with no space to move was really not easy."
Pros: "Staff are very friendly."
Cons: "Paying for luggage was not expected."
Pros: "The smooth flight, the helpful staff. The onboard selection of snacks wasn't bad either and the prices was what I expected."
Cons: "Nothing really, there was no onboard entertainment but that's not a negative because the flight was short only an hour.."
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: "That the app from Germany won’t let me download my boarding card. It’s petty!"
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: "Low price"
Cons: "delay of 1:30."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Flying shop"
Pros: "Boarding was relatively quick"
Cons: "Left late and the staff were a little rude"
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: "Arrived early, a bit confused as to why our bags had to go in the hold but they arrived in a very timely fashion and although the 3 of us were separated, I was in a fire exit seat and my long legged son also had extra leg room at the front. Bonus!"
Cons: "I wish the seats could recline just a little. I can't read without feeling sick so a 3 hour flight can be pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Easy online check in with no need to visit a desk anyway, unlike Jet2 who enforce an online check in only for you to have to do it all again in person."
Cons: "Unnecessarily held at the gate for 45 minutes as the departures boards showed the flight as boarding - no way to get out of this area so stuck. Flight left late and then had to queue up to get access to a drop off area so missed my onward train connection. Paid for food in pounds but given change in Euros - disgraceful - don't offer to take payment in a currency you can't provide change for. Overall a poor experience, will not be flying with RyanAir again."
Pros: "That it took off and landed. That's all."
Cons: "Being made to queue for almost an hour, with staff seeing and allowing people to push in front because they had a child (over 5y.o) with no regard for people who queued. Staff then came from the back to the front of the queue telling people they had to put their carry-on luggage in the hold. When questioned why, the response was "you either do it or we won't let you fly. You don't like it? What do you want? It's Ryanair, deal with it." Very disappointing, flown many times with Ryanair but never been treated like that. Also disgusted with the new policy of having to pay to sit next to your partner of the same booking. Disgusting."
Pros: "Everything. Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Extra leg room seats at the front of the plane don't actually have more legroom, and priority boarding is a farce if those without it can board the plane before you"
Pros: "Seat ok"
Cons: "Delay with no information.this is an airline that although cheap has no interest in customers"
Pros: "Crew were attentive, flight was easy going"
Cons: "Boarding took longer than expected"
Pros: "Left 15 mins late due to idiots not making the gate on time and luggage having to be found for them and arrived on time in Manchester so well done Ryanair!!"
Cons: "Kept staying for 1 hour unnecessarily. Plane late. Flight late, arriving 1 hour late. run out of many refreshment options, plane dirty."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable hard plastic"
Cons: "Late , expensive, loud, no leg room seat do not tilt !"
Pros: "departure time"
Cons: "no water to drink"
Cons: "As we landed at las palmas the passengers were screaming as we had turbulence, no one from the crew tried to ease their fear."
Pros: "Typical Ryanair flight. You know what you are getting"
Cons: "Delayed. Chaotic boarding"
Cons: "The service is poor. They just want to rip you off. The bag price is ridiculous. When you check in they put you in separate seats do you pay. I paid for my son when we were flying out but when coming back l refused to pay. Guess what happened they allocated my 22 year old to sit on the emergency exit. The crew then came to me asking if l could swap seats with my son as he was not allowed to sit there as if it was me who had allocated him that seat. If it was the other way round they would have asked me to pay. When it suits them."
Cons: "Not much extra leg room and one attempted rammed the trolley into my foot trapping my toe against the wall and the didn't even respond to me shouting out in pain"
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "-nowhere tells you that you should pay a €50 fine for not checking in online -paid €150 for overweight luggage even though it cost €70 for the flight -extremely late boarding with no designated que area and no order and no explanation for the ridiculously long wait -crew were bored and maybe even annoyed -bags were dinged the most on this airline -the only reason I flew was because it was a direct flight -never flying again"
Cons: "I'm a frequent flyer. This was my first and last flight with Ryanair. It started at the check in desk. The flight cost me 140 euros plus an additional 50 euros because I didn't check in online. I never check in. Ever. For any of my domestic or national flights. Never. after reading my itinerary email it did state to check in online but failed to mention there would be a penalty if not done. What's the point of a ticket agent when they can't give me my purchased ticket? I have to pay you to give me my ticket !!! Ridiculous! Than I get to the gate and I don't have a seat number because the computer said "full" . I get into the plane. It's delayed 2 hours. We are sitting there in our seats and a passenger 2 rows behind me starts screaming because a cockroach flew into her hair (flight attendants did nothing did not Do anything to help her as she was frightened she was about 11 years old). The floors were a mess. Food, wrappers and crumbs all over the floor. Might explain the cockroach. The air was blasting colder than any flight I have ever been on and I fly a lot. Horrible. I wish I never flew with them."
Pros: "They got us to Manchester alive, although late as always with Ryanair"
Cons: "Everything else, Ryanair provided an awful service, delays on both ends of the journey. No info provided to us and to top it off, there was a screaming child in front of me and next to me."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "We were charged an additional fee for the flight because we didn't check in before arriving at the airport. You did not tell us we needed too do this. We had very poor internetc and could not check in on line. The ticket agent for Ryan Air was rude, and uncooperative. The flight charged for everything including water. The seats could not recline. This was the worst flight wee have ever experienced. If you are going to continue booking flights on the horrible airline you need to warn them they need to check in early or pay a large fee. We will be contacting you for a refund of this fee."
Pros: "The ticket was cheap and to an airport that had easy access to public transportation."
Cons: "I found out later that I had to print out my ticket or face a 50 euro fee and they do not give free water on the flight."
Pros: "Ease of being all done online check.in . Seats . Loved the crew the friendliness. The seat comfort and space ."
Cons: "The allowing of drunk passengers on return rude loud quite scary . Crew dealt with them very professionally"
Cons: "Made us shove my bag into the compartment and made a scene in front of everyone. I will never fly Ryanair again. Worst way to treat guests."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard and painful."
Pros: "The flight was speedy and the plane was one of the new ones with a new interior, which was a nice change from the flight out to Germany."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and disorganised, the plane set off late as Ryanair always do, there were incredibly loud and rude customers onboard which the staff did nothing about. The seats weren't comfortable at all and the headrests were awful. Generally just an uncomfortable plane, the new design looks nicer but the seats are a lot thinner and it shows Just felt very cheap, the flights weren't even particularly cheap either"
Pros: "It was much, much better than the flight to Ibiza because the passengers were at least civilized ,were quiet & did not cause the crew any problems maybe because they were knackered after partying."
Cons: "Nothing to report. All went well. Very efficient & pleasant."
Pros: "Effective service point A to B. Flew from Hamburg Manchester and seated 17A. Leg room good on the exit row."
Cons: "New slimline seats will be difficult for anything more than 2 hours"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Me on row 2 ...wife row 18. All because we didn't pay 'extra' for seats that we had already paid for in the price of a flight! So, basically, if you don't pay, then Ryanair purposely separate couples in punishment. As a frequent flier, this was the very last time myself and my family will be using Ryanunfair!"
Pros: "Neat plane and friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Lousy timing flight was delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Ticket personnel were very helpful"
Cons: "Flight attendants were less then helpful in all area's ..."
Pros: "On time Pleasant cabin crew Fast Track"
Cons: "Finding our way around the terminal. We finally found the check baggage and checked them. Then we went to security which was at the opposite end of the terminal but we were sent back to baggage to have our boarding passes stamped with the visa stamped. Then it was back to security."
Pros: "Arrived 25 minutes ahead of schedule"
Pros: "1 star given for food & entertainment only because no N/A rating option, first time to use Ryanair, better experience than expected, will not hesitate to use again, thank you"
Cons: "Couldn't check in early on the app because of US passport. Nothing directed us to the website, saying we could check in there. 2 hour shift before the flight was looking for a kiosk to check in- they had none. Had to pay $100 euros just to check in at the desk."
Cons: "Rude staff at airport, confusing self check in, high bag fees, expectation of a printed boarding pass with no access to a printer, selling goods on flight."
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "The delay no information why Struggling to find room for your bags when you have paid for luggage Staff where rude when you asked questions why we are late why no room for bags"
Pros: "Get what you pay for and you know up front that this is a point to point journey with no frills. No issues at all. All went smoothly"
Pros: "Ryan air is the stuff of nightmares. I checked in online and bought my luggage online as it's more expensive at the airport. The check in never registered online although the luggage did and I was forced to pay 45 euro at the airport to CHECK IN. You go in wanting a budget flight and they take you for all your money. The flights are cramped and seats small. Which is fine if you've paid 10-30 euros (flight with luggage) but their added other costs are a disgusting attack on budget travelers!"
Cons: "First, I tried to check-in online but their system was down. I outsmarted them because I took several screen shots of different timelines. When I checked-in at their counter, they wanted to charged me €40. The lady wouldnt believe me when I told her that I tried to checkin online for 2 hours but their system was down. That's when I showed her the photo of the screen shot, she called someone on the phone telling him or her of the situation and that I have proof of screenshots. They finally allowed me to check-in with no fee. Second, When I dropped my 3 luggages, they wanted to charge me for my 2 check luggage allowances. I told the lady that I bought online for 3 luggages allowances,but their system only showed that I only bought one. It took several minutes for them to realized that I was right. Third, maybe because of my lack of sleep and tired of travelling for over a month, i left my shoulder bag under the seat of the plane. My fiancee's and my passports as welk.as £500, smart tablet,camera,credit cards,jewelries and other personal belongings were inside my bag. That day was the last day of our 40days vacation. When I got outside of the terminal, that's when I realized that I left my bag on the plane. I went quickly to Ryan air desk but the lady told me that we have to go to the lost item counter and wait for my bag to show up. I waited the whole afternoon at the lost item counter and the lady there told me to just call them and ask if my bag has showed up. When I got to the hotel, I called the airline for rebooking on my flight back to my country. I went back the next day to the airport,but my bag has not showed up at the lost item counter. I was able to get the contact numbers of Ryan air in-charge of this matter. I requested someone to call the person in cbarge,telling him that my bag couldnt be lost because of strict security inside the airport, after a long wait,they finally said they found my bag. I waited 1 hour for Ryan air staff to turn over my bag to the lost item coiunter. When I finally got my bag, there were only £40 left in my bag and a piece of jewelly was missing. I will fly back to my country today and I will file a formal complain with Ryan air as well as write the CEO or President of Ryan air of the way he runs the business. I'm glad I got back our passports but the whole world should know about how Ryan air run their business. PLEASE,.STAY AWAY FROM RYAN AIR."
Pros: "As noted above"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was nice, a lot of empty seats"
Cons: "Noisy children..."
Cons: "Airline stuff was bad in palne which not care about undisable boy was travel with me"
Cons: "Every service bad"
Pros: "Did not like anything about it,"
Cons: "My luggage is lost I am in Erbil just me and my passport !!! Hello no compensation no sorry !! Just fill a form and put your name and bye !!!"
Cons: "the flight was delayed without telling us why we were late from our next flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding on time departure nice crew"
Cons: "really narrow seats no options to lower the back of the seat Water cost money no TV"
Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly"
Cons: "I expected to atleast get a glass of water"
Pros: "Firstly, Overbuggage limits were put into practice with a mindset of just to f* the customers and consequently almost every single passenger has to end up paying at such overated fees that were equal to a level of a business ticket of any well known first class airline company.I , myself, had to pay 450£ in total for the ticket , just because of 34 kg of a luggage weight though 20 kg of this amount was included in the ticket. Sirs, if you really will only take this complaint as just to watch and say that this was a company policy then i will definetly never choose your services either again.Also, from the bottom of my heart, i will never feel tired to share and spead around this nasty experience of mine on each and every social media occasion , when i will have a word to say. Within only one flight on that day ,the total buggage revenue of the company was equal to a sum of 23,000 £ in total, despite the plane was ridiculously abit bigger than a small box. Sirs, Pls rethink over what i said. This is far beyond to accept and fit into any int'l trade rules.17£ fee for 1 kg !?? Best Regards"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "This is a budget airlines, compare to Ryanair seats Pegasus Airlines seats has more leg room, especially I have long legs I need more leg room."
Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"
Pros: "This was a domestic flight, only hour and 30 min. Same aircraft as from London to Istanbul, nice and comfortable seats with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was only hour and 30 min, so I have no criticism for this flight"
Pros: "Good price, times of flights worked for what I wanted"
Cons: "Transfer between flights was on a short timescale and I received several warnings from pegasus about delays at the airport, because of this I purchased a fast track via their site. This was a total waste of money as there was only one Peterson dealing with fast track and long queues, this meant that ordinary queue was dealt with faster."
Pros: "Connecting flight to Stockholm was cancelled. Had to fly to Copenhagen and perchuse another flight with SAS When complaining to their staff the answer I received was that no other airline would even give me an option to fly to Copenhagen (where I was not headed by the way) in short - paid another 300$, got to Stockholm 3 hours late and will never fly them againb"
Cons: "This experience was absolutely horrible for my wife and myself both. We understood that being among the more "budget friendly" airlines, we would have to sacrifice some comfort. But this airline is beyond atrocious to say the least. There is no terminal exit, but rather we had to walk down steps from the plane, walk in the rain to a stand-up bus, and ride it to the airport. How on earth are you supposed to make close connecting flights with those conditions? We barely made it only because they let us skip the line for security. Save yourself the misery; dig deeper in your pocket for a better airline."
Pros: "Liked their flexibility and welcome agent was serving us."
Pros: "All was good but I thing thy need to give food with no pay 3.30 h fly thy need something free"
Cons: "My tent poles, which were attached to my bag were lost. I am hiking in Switzerland and have no tent now!!!"
Pros: "Great team and great pilot everybody to the baggage people were excellent!"
Cons: "All they wanted was money. It was a scam. What is 8kg for a canyon? They would have charged me $75 for 5 kg! The only reason they didn't is because their system was down. They tried my credit cards and when that didn't work, they asked for cash. I never carry more than $5. There was no order in the airport and it was absolute mayhem. I went from line to line. I will never use this airline aha in! TWO hours to get my boarding pass? Anthony Gallo"
Pros: "Was first to check-in and received exit-row seat with its extra leg-room."
Cons: "Exit row seats do not recline .. so could not lie-back on this overnight flight."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Payment options suck! Did not know ahead of time that nothing is offered free of charge!"
Cons: "the staff at the disk was so bad they charge me for extra weight more than what it should be they try to change the currency from turkish lira to euro then to my country currency just to collect more charge???. also when I paid by my visa card they didn't give me my recipt which mean they did something dicey."
Cons: "The landing was so unstable I was scared to death. The flight was over 1 hour late. The staff's English was not understandable at all even for a native speaker."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Cons: "It took me two hours in line just to print my boarding pass even though I checked in online. Many of us thought we would miss the flight. Terrible customer service. I'm never flying with them again"
Pros: "smile of 1 crow chair not bad"
Cons: "timing check in boarding landing I had 2 flights and both we boarded late and arrived late of course. I will never use this air lines again in my life"
Cons: "Check in took 1.5h, that is why me and my wife werent seating next to each other, and also we almost missed our flight."
Cons: "Not even refreshments or a glass of water, almost all flights were delayed, no entertainment, lousy experience..."
Cons: "Delay. No apologies not even one."
Cons: "We wait 1.5 hour....no good air conditional....no water and no juice"
Pros: "As long as I arrive safely, price is the most important thing about a flight..."
Cons: "Air traffic control delays at Istanbal SAW on departure was about 40 mins. Airline blamed it on ATC rather than themselves but weatehr was good, no obvious reason for delays except heavy traffic which surely must occur every day. Airlines should build ATC delays into schedule. Sabiha Gokcen airport shops are masively overpriced which means I will avoid transiting through there."
Cons: "Terrible boarding procedure at Basel. Had to stand in line for about 30 mins waiting to board."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, plane was clean and tidy."
Cons: "People were able to bring on oversized checkin luggage which reduced cabin space and forced people to gate check."
Pros: "Nothing at all . The only reason I get ticket from Pegasus was because they are landing near my house in stanstead airport"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Seats look congested. The noise of plane was very high which is not like others. I m frequent flyer even I travelled with Pegasus in November last year 2015 for Istanbul. Maintenance of plane to reduce the noise"
Cons: "2 hours delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour sitting on plane. Flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "we arrived the airport late but luckily the counter close 30 minutes before flight departure the ground staff help us check through baggage to our final destination-Milan"
Cons: "After the experience with the Pegasus flight from Kuwait to Istanbul I didn't expect anything hence was not disappointed. Right before the boarding was finished the boarding lady came into the plane looking for me, checking my passport one again and even taking a photo of it (with my consent). She left with no single word of explanation. Once again: this is a joke but definitely it's not customer service."
Cons: "Totally useless. Dirty plane, lousy service. Was ready to pay for refreshments as I had to take this low cost airline for time reasons. When trying to pay with a credit card the stewardess was telling me it was a debit card (as if I didn't know what my cards are) - after a while it appeared she mixed online and offline cards for credit and debit cards, yet she was increasingly arrogant while trying to convince me my card is a debit one. So I tried to pay cash with 100 EUR bill and she told me she was going to return the change in Turkish lira! The male steward was just standing next to the trolley without saying a word, looking afraid of his aggressive lady colleague. That's what I call customer service! The particular flight was PC861 Kuwait - Istanbul on June 17."
Pros: "The actual flight to Turkey was ok. nothing horrible happened."
Cons: "I came four hours before my flight, about 4 a.m.. two and a half was spent sending me back and forth because they couldn't agree on what was an appropriate price to charge me for extra baggage. The girl at the baggage counter called Pegasus and they told her the amount. When I got back to the baggage counter, the man there started checking my bags then the supervisor started yelling at me and him, because of a "miscommunication" between the other girl and Pegasus. I heard the other girl explain, and it was no communication. The supervisor as she called herself was extremely rude and short tempered with EVERYONE. Plus, they wanted to charge me 215 dollars for one extra bag. Really? I finally took a few things out and got away with under 90 dollars from the 20 dollars they were going to charge me before. I would have been happy to book with another airline that would have easily come under that price, and I barely got to my gate on time. I booked with Turkish air prior and it was 200 dollars round trip and I was very happy. My bags and food were free. When I got to Turkey to change flights, we had to get off the plane we were on and get on another, and my flight was over two hours delayed. We had to stay at the gate, and so I couldn't buy food at the airport. I would have gotten to Frankfurt at two so the small breakfast I had would have been ok, and now I had to buy food on the plane because I had planned also to meet a friend for dinner outside of Frankfurt before another flight (actually the entire reason I was flying with Pegasus in the first place) and now I wouldn't make it. Can you imagine spending all that money plus a hotel and the entire reason you went is just gone and you have to deal with all of this? So I go to buy food on the plane and I'm told my credit card doesn't work. The funny thing is, previously I checked my bags with the same credit card, and afterwards I rented a car and hotel with the same card. I knew my credit card worked. I made her try it again and nothing. So I just had to live on the small amount of yogurt I had had that morning. There was no apologies or anything for everything we went through except when my credit card wouldn't work the flight attendant gave me some coffee for free. I'm not a complainer and actually travel quite a bit (I've been traveling for 3.5 months straight all over europe and the middle east). This has been the only negative experience I've had. I truly believe that Pegasus does not care about keeping customers. I really feel like I've been treated like dirt, and that I was tricked into booking with them. I've always booked with Kayak and will continue to, but I would reconsider working with Pegasus if I were you. The other discounters like Ryanair are just fine. But this experience made me extremely angry and I will never book with Pegasus again."
Cons: "Flying from Zurich to Israel was able to board the plane with a carry on and a laptop back pack. On the flight from Israel to Zurich i was charged 130$ for extra weight having exactly the same things."
