Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pros: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Clean enough"
Cons: "Charged £60 for hold luggage because the airline’s unstable website wouldn’t allow me to book in advance (£20 extra in the airport). Plane was delayed because they were late allowing passengers to board and missed the runway slot. Seats were uncomfortable - it was an older airframe."
Pros: "Flight Attendants very good"
Cons: "Dusseldorf to Warsaw: Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight out of Dusseldorf (about an hour) - Just before landing, pilot announced all connections would be made - (and even mentioned chicago) - Connecting flight was gone when I arrived at gate, and I was quick in getting to gate from prior flight - next flight caused 5 hour layover in Warsaw Warsaw to Chicago Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight our ot Warsaw (about an hour) - no messaging at gate about reason for delay - kept increasing departure by 5 minute increments; started at 16:40 ended 17:05 (I beleive) - once boarding was complete, pilot said delay was due to wait for connections (boarding was an hour and 15 minutes late). Very frustrated"
Pros: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"
Cons: "The plane seemed very old, toilet in poor condition."
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled for 3 hours later than original departure. Check in opened less than two hours before the rescheduled flight time so everyone was stuck waiting at check-in for hours. We couldnt even go in and relax inside at restaurants or the gate because online check in wasnt available. Then the flight was further delayed with no news about when the new take off would be or why the delay. Finally boarded a tiny plane that had propellers and a loud take off, if you easily fright on planes probably not the best choice for you. And then someone started smoking on the flight and the attendants had to announce again that smoking wasnt allowed. On and off throughout the flight it smelled like someone was smoking so I wonder if it was even coming from the cockpit."
Pros: "Flight was delay by 1 hour consequently my luggage did Ot arrive with me to Katowice on top of that there is no more flights today from waw to kat with lot Airline"
Cons: "Serive to pay extra luggage very very slow"
Pros: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Cons: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Easy to book on phone no problems getting boarding passes etc."
Cons: "Could not amend my booking tried to check a bag online after printing out boarding pass. Had to pay £46 for a 11k bag each way."
Pros: "Every thing."
Pros: "Very good airport check-in and flight. The Check-in staff were quick and efficient and the Flight Crew were friendly and attentive. It was calm and restful."
Cons: "The internet support. I spent meny hours trying to check-in and upgrade my case allowance from 20kg to 32kg, and failed. When I tried to change the baggage weight to 32kg a charge was added for NOT taking the case PLUS the extra for the 32kg case! The cost of a case is reasonable and I would advise to pay the extra £5 for 32kg for most flights. The on-line Seating Selection is also unreliable, I was seated next to an empty seat which had been showing to be unavailable on-line! A response to my query which I sent to Blue Air arrived when I was in the air on the flight! It only repeated the baggage section of the Confitions document! Thank goodness for the excellent airport check-in staff and the Flight Crew!"
Pros: "The flight went well."
Cons: "Bag drop off was terrible and stressful. We arrived 2.5 Hours early to drop the ONE suitcase and have brunch. We queued for 1.5 Hours to then be blocked as all six counters were given over to another flight and people who arrived LATER then us for our flight got to go first. It was incredibly stressful and frustrating especially when I checked in online before arriving at the airport. We had to rush and run through the airport and board at final call. In fact it would put me off flying with Blue Air again."
Pros: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Cons: "Lack of leg room ."
Cons: "The actual flight was good, but to try and check in on line is murder..the website needs a totally new revamp, both to & from Larnaca I was unable to check in on line. You enter all your details press confirm and it is supposed to go to the next instruction, but a message appeared then took you back to your previous page and you had to input all your details again..this happened many times before I eventually gave up."
Pros: "Arrived early to destination"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment also limited drinks"
Pros: "The flight was punctual"

Pros: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Cons: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"

Cons: "Planes were late Issue with on-line check-in Non responsive contact center at high cost per minute Absolutely inadequate space for knees, am 1.93 and my knees were stuck all the way during the flight although I had upgraded to a seat with better space. Old aircraft"
Pros: "The service was OK, we flew on time and the flight itself was pleasant."
Cons: "The interior of the aircrafts looked old and a bit dirty. The feeling is that you are flying on a poor low cost service."

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The crew is very good"
Pros: "Seemed like a technical problem. The pilot wouldn't give up any information."
Cons: "Small seats with little legroom"
Pros: "All was very efficient, food and drink a nice surprise"
Pros: "It took almost one hour in line just to check in. Also, the flight was delayed. They changed the seats and the crew was calling people who had previously booked breakfast because their seats didn't match what they had booked."
Cons: "We almost missed the plane because checking in took over an hour, since they only had one person for the entire flight. In addition, the flight was delayed and the food was not good."

Cons: "no special dislikes"
Pros: "Check in was crowded but it went very fast; Boarding was done on time; Flight was smooth; Despite the fact that the plane was rather old, it was clean and good smelling, toilets spotless to my surprise."

Pros: "More legroom than other low cost airline. Friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was late for no apparent good reason. The boarding was slow and that introduced delay."
Pros: "The agent at check-in was kind."
Cons: "I was put in Emergency exit row but was the last to board. There was no place overhead for my only bag which could not be kept at my feet. And of course, take-off delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "No explanation or compensation for the lengthy delay in departing"
Pros: "Nothing, really"
Cons: "Baggage fee €50 payable in cash only. Boarding was a stockyard experience. Gates are remote and obscure. €2.5 for diet Pepsi on board??!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Poor on board shopping options"
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: "Efficient service that was on time. There was no food or entertainment but that was expected. I like how everyone cheers when we land!!"
Cons: "Flight delay, everything costs money, even a glass of water. I never will fly with them"
Cons: "Being charged $50 a bag was not cool when the tix only cost $22"
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. First off you will get charged 50 euros if you don't print out a boarding pass before arriving at the airport. Then you will be charged if you want to pick a seat or carry on a bag. You will be put on a bus to get to the plane then climb stairs to board. It takes forever to claim your bag."
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: "best food and drinks best clubs"
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"
Cons: "Bribery at check in. In very fine print, the ticket you think you paid for online is not valid to get a boarding pass at the airport unless you visit another website prior to going to the airport. If you do what I did, which is arrive expecting to be handed a boarding pass, you will be extorted for 50€ because they cut off your ability to visit the required online website. Total scam. This should be illegal. Buyer beware. Kayak did not know about this scam."
Pros: "Great landing!"
Cons: "Very crowded and little room"
Cons: "They canceled our flight and we have not received a refund plus the 250 euros per person owed to us."
Cons: "Spraying perfumes on board to sell it is inappropriate, people can be allergic to smells, don't like it, even big malls with huge departments and open floors don't do this"
Cons: "Late , expensive, loud, no leg room seat do not tilt !"
Pros: "departure time"
Cons: "no water to drink"
Pros: "We had priority - so easy We did not eat or drink- should have N/A"
Pros: "The plane was clean, and looked new"
Cons: "No space for my legs"
Cons: "Marketing services"
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."
Cons: "Ryanair is the single worst airline I have experienced in 46 years of flying on more than 80 airlines from many countries. I will not ever fly them again, regardless of cost."
Pros: "Bus with wings"
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!!!"
Pros: "Price was very low. That said, if luxury travel is your thing this is not for you. For a short flight, as long as you pay attention to their roles about baggage sizes and the cost of extras, they can save you a lot of money. They were on time and well-run, a big improvement over the last time I flew them (10yrs ago)."
Cons: "Allowable carry-on size is below industry standard."
Cons: "No food, long delays and unexpected costs"
Pros: "price flexible with luggage"
Cons: "-- boarding process is terrible with very long lines in all Ryanair. -- not enough room for the allowed luggage, and this masses the aircraft -- other that EU people cannot use mobile boarding pass and must print it, which is stressful for flying away from home/office for more than 4 days, and with no airport kiosk to print it - some people were really stressed by the threat to pay 47$ for a flight that costs less than that, just since they could not print the pass in the hotel."
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."
Cons: "Way overpriced! We were charged excessive additional money after we booked"
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "They charge you for everything and it's outrageous, if you don't check in before and print or have the boarding pass on your phone, they charge you $45 euros!"
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised by their efficiency and comfort/leg room on plane. Plenty of carry on overhead space and good meal options for purchase."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "They checked bags unnecessarily and charged high fees, a complete rip off, not customer service friendly at all (agents). During the flight they made so many announcements and then sold many things constantly from credit cards to food, duty free. Sooooo many announcements, forget about closing your eyes. Seats don't recline either at all! Overall like a herd of cattle forget comfort."
Pros: "They wouldn't let me carry on my beach umbrella, not cool. Otherwise fine."
Pros: "no hassle at boarding"
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "They try to charge you for everything. Be careful that you print your boarding pass and check in prior to arriving at airport for your flight, or they will try and charge you 45 Euro."
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!"
Cons: "all expensive and all separate payments for everything. I think was not fair to charge me for checking in charges for about a minute or 2 due to a slow system at the airport when printing boarding pass. Other bad experience was very uncomfortable seats on the plane overall. In general just do much charges for everything."
Pros: "Thiumbs up!"
Cons: "Line in the airport disorganized ; had to pay for boarding passes last minute; had to pay for water in plane; didn't take credit cards in plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay standing on concrete in a crowded gate. Non-reclining seats. Tiny expensive drinks."
Cons: "Practically everything!!!"
Pros: "Ryan. Air is a scam"
Pros: "Quick Boarding"
Cons: "3 Euro for a bottle of water....."
Cons: "Couldn't understand the reason for waiting to the shuttle at the gate stairs after passing the gate inspection..."
