Pros: "Comfortable airplane, organized crew and fast boarding operation"
Cons: "I asked for a vegan meal when I ordered a ticket and did not get one. I needed to ask and explain myself and it was not so nice. At the end I got it, thanks to the attendant"
Pros: "Plan crew , pilots , services on plan and cleaning"
Cons: "Land crew , airport , and airline disorganized I wanted to complain about crew member , But she will not give her name or ID number, And when I snap a picture she calls the police , Her bag was inside her shirt and she will not revile"
Pros: "The flight attendant was welcoming at the door and the service was done efficiently."
Cons: "The tv monitor at the airport never bother to inform the passengers which was the boarding gate. After asking other passengers we deducted the gate number. The boarding was like a cattle drive bordering on a stampede since Aegean Airlines didn’t bother to divide passengers by groups, so people rushed to be first in line. We waited standing with our carryons for over 45minutes. Nobody knew what was happening or when they will start boarding. Naturally, when we finally got on board people where blocking the aisle because Aegean didn’t bother to board from back to front as it is usually done. The flight attendants were sweet but their English was almost unintelligible. My brother works and I worked for major airlines and have never seen anything so disorganized and unprofessional."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket I made sure there was one piece of luggage allowed. When I checked in they said there is no baggage allowance and had to pay usd 69. I feel I have been duped. I should get a refund."
Cons: "Plane got stuck on the runway for 45 minutes citing some air congestion reason over Cyprus!!!! we where in Lebanon. Comfort is low for the prices you pay"
Pros: "I appreciated that they didn't charge me to check in my carry on bag."
Cons: "It is sad that they could not add this flight on to my Star Alliance without my card."
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Cons: "Disembarkation via buses. Not great."
Cons: "At Beirut airport the manager gave permission to a passenger at check in to bypass all the passengers waiting in line just because he was with someone!!! When I stepped out, and asked him can you do this. Very rudely he said, that this passenger is business class. I didn't believe him, so I asked the second manager if this is correct. He didn't do anything about it. When on the plane, the passenger, was sitting behind me in economy class. Shitty service."
Cons: "The website only mentions about having to pay for extra luggage and they made me pay 55 dollars at the airport for a 20 kg suitcase. This is dishonest and unacceptable."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful and friendly. Food was not worse than what one can expect of an airline (about as “good” as a US airline’s, which is not a high standard to beat). The plane seemed recent and clean."
Cons: "The major problem was the lack of detail on their luggage policy. I am sure they can show the text clearly warning me about the fees for bringing a piece of luggage per person, but I missed it. Therefore, they charged me $35 per person for their registered bag. That’s probably how they “beat” their competitors’ prices. If you include the fees in your calculation, this might still be a good option, but make sure that you read the fine print, or be prepared to pay as “extra” what many airlines offer as basic."
Pros: ".usually I like this company."
Cons: "There was 50% of the flight with a feeling that the is no air. It was suffocating."

Pros: "I love flying Aegan - it is always comfortable and pleasant. Due to my own mistake I didn't order a kosher/vegetarian meal, which is why I rated the food "N/A". On flights this short there are no entertainment options which is fine I suppose :) overall, this is one of my favorite airlines to fly! Thanks!"
Cons: "too many fussy babies crying and screaming."
Cons: "Its the worst airline"
Cons: "As something that seems to happen pretty much constantly with Aegean... the plane arrived late and was delayed... which also in turn caused me to miss my scheduled bus to Jerusalem... but... what can you do... not everything is in our control unfortunately... I hope one day that the airline will organise itself and get things running a bit more smoothly.... Also... there was a meal on the flight but not option was given to those who are vegetarians to request a special meal at time of booking or later on while managing the booking... this was a bit unfair in my mind that my only option was a pasta and meat sauce meal so I did not get to eat... also... within my Star Alliance menber account I am listed as a vegetarian meal... so it should have been automatic just as it is on Swiss, Lufthansa, Etc... when I fly with them."
Cons: "about 50 minutes late"
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."

Pros: "It's the cheapest you can get"
Cons: "They split me and my wife on porpuse to force me to buy the option to choose my seating. The leg space is tiny and the chairs won't recline so it's super uncomfortable. Flight times are shitty. Te leave early in the morning so you can barely get some sleep at night. Nor on the plane. They don't any serve food or even water and let you dry up. You can buy overpriced food and beverage onboard. My purchase from the duty free was stolen and they didn't help me handle the problem. Awful experience."
Pros: "I was at the gate. Before the door to enter the airplane. The Hungarian crew wasn’t telling me that they are closing the gate or going to close it. They completely ignore me and let me stand there and at the end I see the door close in front of me, 2 meter from me and they told me I mised flight."
Cons: "I lost my money and I had to buy new flight with other company. Wizzair crew at budapest was very rude and didn’t take responsibility for the mistake they did.

Cons: "Couldn’t check in online. Got to airport to be told I couldn’t fly because fully booked. Still here in Macedonia. The earliest they could fly me back is Tuesday. Absolutely disgusting , fuming !!!!"
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Pros: "The Crew was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible, took a long time - few and not enough boarding and suitcases counters, which made people wait for a long time and even let others to pass them in line because their flight was earlier. due to this our flight was late by 45 minutes. the food was too expensive."
Cons: "I didn't check in, in advance as when logging on to the airline I needed a code. I didn't have the code as I was searching emails for the booking agent and airline when it was (as I later discovered) sent by another name. This resulted in £30 to check in going out and 40 euros back. Desk staff were unhelpful bordering on rude (the cabin staff were fine in that respect. I wasn't the only one at least 20 people queuing on the return with the same issue. Additionally on the delay out they advised food could be brought at the rear of the plane then inflight ran out so some people ate twice while by the time I got to my hotel they had stopped serving food and I had not eaten in the airport sorting out the boarding passes."
Pros: "Mobile app is very good, but just allow you to download boarding pass on PDF version right at the moment of the check in"
Cons: "They didn't let me flight. Even that I did the online check in 24 hours before they didn't send me the boarding pass on PDF format via email. Also there were no way to download it from the mobile app or the website. I was in the airport 2 hours before and they didn't want to print it for me even that I showed all the online check in confirmation. They requested that I pay €35 Euro for the airport print. I submitted a complain and hope to get a credit or refund. Confirmation code: L3QZWB"
Pros: "Excellent pilot"
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Plane was late and all passengers had to wait at the gate. Too many people for such a small area for that length of time."
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Cons: "Don't forget to print a damn boarding pass. Cost me 100$ at the airport just for that... What a rip off. First time traveling to Europe so, I guess that's a part of the learning curve."
Cons: "There was a delay 1 hr poor service no apology"

Cons: "Lots of hidden charges."
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Pros: "We landed in one piece"
Cons: "I didn't receive my online check in details so I couldn't check in. I was abroad so chasing up details I should have been provided with / were never told that I should have, were not on the top of my to do list. I only found out that I had to check in online and that I hadn't been provided with these details when I arrived at the airport. I spent 30 minutes on hold before the problem was rectified and I was given my online check in details but it was now top late to check in online (by 5 minutes ). The flight was delayed due to a number of things - a late arrival, people being let onto the plane slowly, people not sitting down and allowing the plane to taxi and leave. This had a knock on effect of making the plane land late and for me to miss my connection (train) so basically through last minute.com not providing me with the correct details regarding the flight and the flight then being delayed it tripled my whole journey back home."
Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."

Pros: "Flight left on time and left early"
Cons: "Endless sales in cabin of duty free items"
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "We (a family of 5) were late for 5 minutes (literally) to the boarding ... Our flight was at 3.45 PM and were at the gate at 3.20 PM ... We were held up at the Passport Control by the Polish Border Guards at the Passport Control - their computer was down ... My wife cried, my kids cried and asked to be let in on the plane ... Nobody cared to help us ..."
Cons: "for RyanAir to be more human and humane and caring ..."

Cons: "Improve comfort in meetings and more space .."
Pros: "Next just to check if a person say that they have paid luggage . Just to have a look. Not just jump to you have to paid. I would have paid for something I had already paid for. That’s all. Not only was it a waste of time for me and for them as well. As the air hostesses had such attitude."
Cons: "I know the customer is not always right but it would not kill them to check if someone say something."
Pros: "The crow was very nice the flight was good"
Pros: "Ryanair still don’t have enough leg room for taller people. Very uncomfortable. Cheap but not that cheerful if you’re over 6 ft"
Cons: "More leg room or exit seats for taller people"
Pros: "The aircraft seats were really comfortable."
Cons: "We could have been boarded on time instead of early so we could sit a bit more to wait"
Pros: "- very kind and professional crew"
Cons: "- boarding was late - did not get actual notice that plane IS GOING to be slightly delayed (only email that it MIGHT happen)"
Pros: "Flight on time, luggage handling ok"
Cons: "The long walk to and from the plane. The stupid trail down the steps into the cold and rain, across the tarmac then back up the steps into the plane. At Birmingham airport. Fine at Malaga no problem."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our suitcase were lost"
Cons: "I came to the airport on 17:30 but The Checkin counter were open too late, after 1800. There was only 1 staff member in the counter. The lines were long and crouded . After we finished our check in and sent the luggage we went to the gate. There they realized that some of the printed bourding passes are not o k. The attendant in the counter did not checked it and sent us to the gate. We had to go back to the counter but the flight was closed already. We called the staff and after all we had to pay 100 euro to the counter to print the correct bourding passes and then to rush to the aircraft. If Ryan air put enough staff in the counters it wouldn’t happen. We almost miss the flight and it caused us a big inconvenous."
Pros: "That the place reached safetly to its destination"
Cons: "Rome Line to checkin started at the entrance of the airport with no Ground staff attention or clear line marked people were fighting and cutting each other . Check in process approved our luggage for hand cary as we paid for it in advance. In the gate they suddenly decided the luggage was 1 cm larger then agreed, refused to bring a measurement tape and charged us 50 Euro in addition to send the luggae in the plane rather than hand carry. Need less to say that in the flight to Rome our luggage was approved for hand carry so clearly Rome staff were into making money.. Planes were late to take off and 1 hour late to land (that from a total of a 3 hour flight ) although not announced . In summary ground staff experience was awaful and made us decide to not fly with Ryanair air again"
Pros: "It arrived to its destination."
Cons: "Extremely long lines from start to end (bag drop off, security, passports, line to boarding etc), plenty of long walks from one line to the other. Everything cost extra charges, we had to add a non négligeable amount, in order to be seated with the kids, to have our boarding pass printed. A tiny bottle of water cost 3€. No entertainment whatsoever. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Price - That is All"
Cons: "Delay, Checking, Plane is Old and Seats do not Recline, Children Screamming, etc"
Cons: "The check in process was extremely slow and the line up was very long with only 2 crew members checking people in"
Pros: "Absolute nothing!"
Cons: "An hour delay for take off, we were trapped in the plane"
Cons: "We got the feeling that the price is low but the company will do all it takes to FAIL the customer and make him pay more. For example, the customer must check in online. if not done properly the cost is about 100 euro more, AND the online check in procedure is not working that well, you need to press buttons several times in order for it to work (and I have a good phone), and if you give up in the middle it will cost you. More on that we did a mistake and did not purchase luggage for the way back, when we went to the desk to buy it (after standing more than 2 hours in the check in), we were told to pay 40 euros, where the price is 23 if paid online. we asked to talk to a manager and get the regular price for the suitcase, the cashier said "no problem i can call him, but then you will miss the flight..." and in the meantime there were still lots of people in the check in line... The service is very slow and not pleasant, and the crew always give you the feeling you are not ok. I understand the price is low and this is a lo cost flight, but this should not happen no matter what is the price."
Pros: "We arrived alive"
Cons: "Checking in was torture. It was the airline version of "The Trial" with a Dutch Twist (no one in charge). Luckily (?) the plane turned out to be 45 minutes late, so the eternity it took to have the rookie who finally showed up to look blankly at her computer screen, apprently hoping it would receive Divine instructions on how to work her way through the ONE PERSON in line in front of us, in order to stamp our pre-printed boarding passes did not cause us to miss the last flight of the day from Amsterdam to Dublin. Now lets talk about the torture device that Ryanair uses as a passenger seat. . ."
Pros: "Arrive 5 minutes earlier"
Cons: "The boarding was a mess. We had to wait in the bus for about 40 minutes because the plane was not ready yet. The landing was rough. But I guess it’s okay because it’s very cheap."
Cons: "we had delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Price. Timetable"
Cons: "Seats. The fact they put everyone in a deferent row"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "All, my wife needs a glass of water to take a pill and she was refused."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Delays and lack of clarity and updating"
Cons: "The staff, one in particular, was very rude. I asked for some hot water to drink on board as I wasn’t feeling well, and the flight attendant refused. The seats were extremely uncomfortable, and just helped ruin the overall experience. The flight was late. We also ended up alighting the plane in rain when we got to London, which cause me to get a cold."
Pros: "price, schedule, staff"
Cons: "the inconsistent carry-on bag policy which changed from the time of ticket purchase and forced us to purchase a 'premium' add-on to our ticket in order to be able to take our trollys on board. not professional."
Pros: "I can't think of a single good thing in that experience"
Cons: "Ryanair acted like a dust Stucker of money. Not only on the way forward they forbidded only flights from Israel (!) to bring any hand luggage at all without purchasing the priority boarding, and people were allowed with a small hand bag only (since the priority tickets finished) , but on the way backwards, after the entire airplane bought the priority ticket, the crew of ryanair acted in such a discriminating way and banned people that exceeded the bag check with less than 2 cm! It seems like the crew were determined to collect at many 50euro fines as possible from the passenger because they insisted very impolitly and brutally to measure each luggage from all possible sides, and even the luggage that fitted, they found excuses to fail them. I've rarely experienced such humiliating vision, especially due to the fact that everyone were forced to purchase the extra priority boarding and you'd expect the company to try and keep the customers, not drive them away. I can just say that with all the fines and extra payments requested by them, the total price of the flight was 100euro more expensive than the price of El AL or alitalia, same timing and with a meal and big suitcase included. All this, without mentioning the bad attitude of the crew and the extreme uncomfortability of the chairs (also purchased, obviously). To summarize, this was a very bad choice, with I will not repeat again."
Cons: "uncomfortable, nickel and dime you, charged us for a bad thay was within regulation"
Pros: "There is a lady at the gate before we board the flight from rome (FCO) to tel aviv who is particularly nasty. She scrutinized and had every single person on line put their bag to be measured. She even did that with small back packs!!! Unfortunately for HER nobody had to pay extra for luggage!!! It is really the attitude. i paid a lot of money for my flight as much as a regular fligh neary $400 and yet I was still NOT allowed to take luggage. Its ridiculous!!! Had I booked with a regular airline, I would have paid similar fees and have a bag to put on the plane . Its time that Ryan air stop taking advantage of people and allow some luggage just like everyone else does. It doesn't have to be 50 lb but it can be a few pounds!!!"
Pros: "the cost"
Cons: "Boarding was late in 30 min."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "they where delayed and as a result they made me miss my flight.. to Barcelona i hate this airlines and will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Everything was well organized and worked as expected. Good ROI"
Cons: "Seats has fixed configuration (but it become an advantage when you're eating and working since front passenger can't make you troubles:-)"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Access to airplane and egress via the aircraft own steps is an accident waiting to happen for those people with impaired mobility."
Pros: "Made me pay 50 euros for a small trolley that was a bit above the requested dimensions though it fits well to the over head bins. Apart from this - nice crew and a pleasent flight"
Cons: "Too tough with measuring the trolkey bag. On the eay from my homeland ww had no challenge with the same bag"
Pros: "Very good value for money. Courteous service by cabin crew."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seating arrangements. It seems all the passengers were separated by purpose. No one set with their spouse."
Pros: "The price was very cheap as I booked half a year ahead. Flight was on time. Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. You have to pay for everything else except for the flight but this is Ryanair and it's understandable."
Pros: "Seat xxl very cold beside escape door. Do not worthy to pay"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The plane was defective and they waited hours to change planes. There was one that we eventually used right next to it. Delayed three hours. The original destination was changed entailing a bus trip of four hours in the middle of the night. There was no one who gave any information on how to find the bus upon arrival."
Pros: "Crew was very loud, I couldn't really sleep, the personal leg space is too small, could barely fit in there."
Cons: "The crew was loud (flight related issues)"
