Cons: "We had a delayed flight from Mykonos to Athens and the airflight company did nothing to help us."
Cons: "Food, not in time."
Pros: "We were served a good little sandwich for a snack."
Cons: "We went though boarding only to stand in a long line for 10 minutes or more waiting to get into the plane. They could have started boarding later."
Cons: "Best"
Pros: "Accuracy in times"
Pros: "Efficient. It was a very short flight."
Cons: "Offer of Wi-Fi."
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."
Pros: "Everything was on-time, easy, and fairly quick."
Cons: "The legroom."
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Cons: "Disembarkation via buses. Not great."
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: "Plenty of legroom. Professional crew. They offered food on a relatively short flight. Very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Evrything was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on that flightes"
Pros: "Everything was fine, even above expected for low cost airline. Nice crew, free drinks."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better."
Pros: "We enjoy flying with Aegean, very good treatment for families with kids."
Pros: "on time, they were aware that we came from a connection and took care of everything. pleasant flight."
Pros: "Quick departure after boarding"
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: "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."
Cons: "Delay 1 hour and 20 minutes at departure"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "They should work on their airport staff a little."
Cons: "it has nothing to do with aegean air but security at the flight was poor - we found out that by mistake my friend left a knife in his hand bag and it was not found untill we unpacked and saw it at home!!!"
Pros: "On time. Space. Great team."
Cons: "Delays...."
Cons: "after boarding, we were stuck sitting in the plain for 2 hours because of a technical problem, and Aegean was trying to use the situation to sell us water! no water was given to us, also- no useful information about the status of the problem."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Warm soda."
Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"

Pros: "cleen quiet and beutifull crew"
Pros: "ש"
Cons: "Not comfatable very basic food"
Cons: "Online check-in didn’t work (and anyway there is no difference if you check-in online when you arrive at the airport). Security checks were very (very) tedious."
Pros: "Great crew! Nice new plane"
Cons: "Paid for baggage on the website but website didnt work and was forced to pay full price in person at airport. Frustrating!"
Pros: "The security and fast boarding"
Cons: "The meal"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, efficient and handle a problem business passenger with a smile and good nature diffusing and placating the passenger even thou the passenger was at fault."
Cons: "Business seats should really recline all the way."
Pros: "Good quick service from the flight crew."
Cons: "No airline food is really good but this one seemed really unsubstantial."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Couldn't access the website to add luggage. Couldn't choose seat on check-in - even though I strongly prefer aisle (and my frequent flyer preferences show this) I was assigned a window seat on the way back and couldn't change it. Seats are very cramped. When the person in front of me reclined I coul"
Cons: "Neither you nor pric line mentioned the fact that the return round of a round trip ticket did not include luggage disgusting."
Pros: "service good , food good flight smooth"
Cons: "they lost 3 of our suitcases took 3 days to get 2 and one is still not accounted"
Pros: "They let people with kids board first"
Cons: "Had the worst seats on the plane. we were in the back row next to the bathroom and by the flight attendants. The flush of the bathroom was so loud that it kept waking my kids and I up...also the flight attendants constant scurrying around our seats made it impossible to sleep. Not looking forward to the flight back"
Cons: "El Al switched the flight to IsraAir and the plan was very old and the most uncomfortable I ever was on."
Cons: "I ordered and paid for one backage to send and I was asked to pay becuse was not updated"
Cons: "Kosher food is very meager."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Everythingnone"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "It's the 2nd time my luggage has been delayed/lost, and I really needed it for the next day since it had my work clothes/hospital info/stethoscope in it. The person at the lost and found counter was really great and helpful, I'm just upset since I only have travel clothes on now and can't show up to the hospital those"
Pros: "All was fine"
Cons: "My family was not sitted togther, and I was sitted with my baby on the other side of the plane."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "no entertainment in long flight small leg room kids in especial seats disabled the option of moving the seat in front row food - taistless"
Cons: "Spent most of the flight watching a good film but the system was shut in the final scene So annoying!!!"
Pros: "The crew were fine, Katia is EXCELENT."
Cons: "The poor chief stewardess was arguing for 1/2 an hour (!) or more with someone who sat in an empty seat next to emergency door. I understand that she has to do this - give her a break!! Big deal! You are SO small minded - charging 3$ for snacks that cost you 40 cents at most, in order to earn you... what - an extra few hundred $'s in the flight? Isn't this rather stupid of you? p.s. Katya is a wonderful stewardess"
Pros: "on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "old plane, no GPS, tiny video screen far away, revolting food both ways"
Pros: "I liked the security, and the Crew, they were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "There is no entertainment system. Kids didn't like the kids menu. Vegan dish was Great. Seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Lowest expectations"
Pros: "20 Years I avoided this airline due to lousy service. the team on this flight and previous one from Tel aviv to BCN were A OK"
Cons: "Not enough blankets on return flight"
Pros: "i like that I arrived safely. No delays."
Cons: "I didn't like nor appreciate how the staff interrogated me and treated me prior to boarding the flight. I understand that they have high security, but their attitudes are nasty and inhumane. So therefore I will never fly them again. Not to mention my luggage didn't make it. I had to go on without my luggage. They inspected and reinspected every single item on my carry on for like an hour in a different room. Kinda scary.! Other airlines check the bags in front of the passengers. Horrible experience and I travel a lot and had never experienced anything like that. Almost didn't feel welcome to be traveling to Israel. The flight attendants have attitudes and they yelled at me because I didn't speak or understand hebrew. Food on the plane is horrible too."
Pros: "Received water during the flight. Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the airport, I was pressurized by the "UP" check-in desk staff to send my carry-on to the plane's hold because "the flight is packed and we prefer that you do so". I didn't argue, but this just gives an overall bad impression and certainly does not shed positive light on the company's competence and professionalism. The flight itself was delayed because of insufficient carry-on space in the upper compartments - carry-ons had to be taken off to the hold - something that created a noticeable delay, add to that the dismay of many irked passengers and the expected complaining and hopeless pleas to the flight attendants. The plane took off 20+ minutes late. The fact that this is "low cost" is no justification at all for such a chaos."
Pros: "Crew was kind."
Cons: "My husband and I never want to fly El Al ever again because the planes are completely outdated and somehow tickets are still full price. Every time we fly El Al the entertainment doesn't work, the screens are ridiculously small, the seats are cramped and the bathrooms are a mess. Every other airline we have used that costs the same or less is a completely different, and better, experience."
Pros: "Checking in. There was a problem with the tickets we ordered but there was a man named Joshua Dadana who was compassionate, helpful and professional who worked his best along with others whose names I did not write down to catch the flight to Israel. I would highly recommend your airline."
Pros: "Well, they were on time. Shockingly."
Cons: "I don't know how El Al gets away with serving people their so-called nightly "meal". They have the audacity to tell passengers it's a "tapas" meal. Tapas has nothing to do with it. You can choose between tuna salad (tuna drowned in mayo with mostly peppers) or chicken with tahini (mostly peppers again, with two small cubes of chicken drowned in tahini). They give you this with a small salad, pita and industrial hummus which is probably the best thing about this meal. Having being burned by this meal last time - they ran out and I got a "glatt kosher" meal - I took the vegetarian option, which was roasted peppers, salad made from 80% lettuce, 20% peppers and no dressing and an inedible cookie. I am allergic to peppers. There is no entertainment to speak of, because El Al sees no reason to update its planes, and there is no personal entertainment system. You can download an app to your phone called "Dream Stream", and stream some options from El Al, but then you have no where to charge your phone, so what's the point? The seats are ridiculously close together, and if someone leans back you really can't eat. Finally, I have no idea why they do this - but El Al flights from Europe don't attach to the terminal via ramp. You get out of the plane on a staircase, in the middle of the night, in the pouring rain, and then have to take a bus to the terminal. It's not like all ramps are busy at 4AM..."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The food was good, it arrived on time. The film was interesting. The temperature was pleasant"
Cons: "I did not like the seat It was hard to watch TV, I had to bend my neck all the time. I had pain in my neck all the flight. I wish the chair could have been less erect. It was easier to put my head on the chair in front than on the back of my chair"
Pros: "The fast of Taanis Esther started at about 4:30am in the morning. The crew was kind enough to serve breakfast earlier than usually to accommodate those who were fasting. They probably had to sacrifice an hour or two of their own sleep, but it was really appreciated by the passengers. The crew should be complemented!"
Cons: "I sat in a seat with something under the seat in front of me. I couldn't completely turn off the screen in front of me."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable sitting in coach sitting. El-al should replace the seats for this plane. It felt almost like sitting on a piece of wood. Also entertainment options were very poor for a 11 hour flight from Boston."
Pros: "Big plane,left on time, nice crew. smiling stewardess"
Cons: "The Sandwiches are boring,nothing else, not always it is possible to find something not to like."
Pros: "new entertainment system was nice"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive, and late to take off, plane was full and crowded. no leg room. food was rather poor"
Pros: "They had the perfect shows on the plane, the crew was very nice and positive"
Cons: "In both flights they had a problem with times and scheduele"
Cons: "Early chekin system deliberately alocated separat sieats for me and my wife, despite I cheked in 23 hours befor take off. The cabin crew was very unfrendly. The bording prosses was slow, messy and unplesent."
Pros: "Personal is very good. Helped us very quickly to change sits to something more preferable for us."
Cons: "Chairs are not comfortable at all. Food is low quality"
Cons: "Crew at the check in were rude, would not let us return the same handheld suitcases we came with, required we check them in, one which they did let us take was required to be measured again with the "cage" at the gate. The temperature on boath flights was very high even with max airflow. We were not allowed to bring abroad bottled water which we had bought at the duty free at the airport, and the aircraft chair would not recline and was extremely crowded with almost no leg space. Will not recommend!"
Cons: "time table was created to keep it it is not working with elal"
Pros: "We paid a full price and received a service of a low cost flight. Airplane was extremely uncomfortable, food- instead of breakfast- poor sandwiches with no choice for vegan. No earphones or music. It's a shame for el al to charge so high for such a chip and uncomfortable flight and service."
Pros: "everything!!!"
Cons: "nothing."
Cons: "i am a guide arranging groups to Rome. I arrived 3 hours before the flight - as is required, to find an under-staffed security check . My group of 20 people , some of which were over 80 years old , had to stand 2 hours in line before they where approached. For those that collapsed there were only about 12 chairs in the entire space, for the multitudes that were coming for the flight. i will never fly El -Al to Rome with my groups again, and will not accept the claim that this is "the Ministry of Security" (as the security checkers claimed) , unless i receive an answer to assure that this is to be amended. i purchased tickets from ElAl - and they must provide better standards for and during their security issues."
Pros: "My name is irit marko 0502931085 Please call me The crew was not nice"
Cons: "You charged my suitcase that was empty.i checked on line i did not see any thi g i tried to call no answer.i explain them that the suitcase was empty .my daugter start school there and we brought a lot of thing.the staff was impatient and not nice.we flew with other airline to larnka they were nice and understand the problem.my daugter is going to school there to medical school she and our family are not going to fly with you.they charge me 60 u more then the flight.very grify"
Cons: "Same movie in the flight to FRA and back.... Also there was no sound channel which sounded normal. all of them had some strange overlay of translation in foreign language and crew did not know how to fix it. My kids did not like the food at all although it was pasta with bolognese source that every kid likes - don't know how they messed this up. Flight was delayed by 1:15 hrs. Luggage took very long time to get out."
Pros: "It eventually ended."
Cons: "Someone on the previous flight threw up in my seat, it was never cleaned, it just soaked in. Flight crew swapped out the cover after 10 min of arguing with them but it stunk horribly. Mid way thru the flight I got up and when I lifted the seat belt I realized there was more vomit in the latch. No power adapters. Movies were super old and my screen was broken so I couldn't watch anyway. Music loop included Dolly Parton!"
Cons: "The landing was the worst I've experienced! I had nasia & when we went to the terminal I had to go to the bathroom and threw up!"
Pros: "Все !"

Could not check on on line for 1 out of 3 passengers

Didn’t happen

Great company

I was not boarded because i was positive on my pcr test

Delay flight....:(

The one thing I must say is that the flight wasn't full at all, and in this case, I'm really unsure why they wouldn't sit people farther from each other.

Pros: "Professional and safe"
Cons: "Better boarding (lines too long)"
Pros: "The offert of 5 euro discount on Duty Free products when you buy some food over 6 euros."
Pros: "It was enough fast"
Cons: "Too much money for nothing service."
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience overall, but what you pay is what you get."
Cons: "Pretty much everything..."
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. They could just say they are closing the door but nobody did. 2 meters from me and after I passed all security they ignored me completely."
Pros: "The cheap fares"
Cons: "Airplane was filthy, needed a thorough cleaning. More padding on the seat."
Cons: "The seats are cramped and you have to pay for snacks and water"
Pros: "The seat not so comfortable but good"
Cons: "Wiz air seems to trick you constantly to get more money out if things they hide from you.. online check-in required.. letting you in work a trolley and then charge you at the gate.. pee service overall.. beware!!"
Cons: "Comfort of the plane. So freaking uncomfortable. Seats didn’t even recline back."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Claustrophobic"
Cons: "Never announced for non-priority boarding, so many people were late to flight, causing delays. Much less than minimum leg room required for any normal human. Sat bolt upright with front seat digging into knees for 3 hours. Far from the cheapest ticket, but totally no frills, no food, no entertainment, limited baggage. Wizz Air mobile app barely works when required (for boarding passes, etc) Not enough room in overheads for all the carry on they allowed, had to sit with bag and jacket on my lap for flight, as no room under seat either."
Pros: "All and all great value for the money"
Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "There was a problem with their website that was out of our control, that didn’t allow us to print boarding passes and we were charged at the airport even though we had proof we tried and were not able through no fault of our own"
Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."
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."
Pros: "I asked for a cup of water for my child and they gave me a bottled water. Then they charged me 2.50 euros. Their credit card processing machine was not working properly, which was frustrating: the flight attendant got frustrated and had to come back again until she can process my payment."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Quick to board, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "On night flights woken up to serve drinks and given flying details from the pilot. Great in the day but would rather be left and not disturbed at night!"
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: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Pros: "I was lucky to be seated next to the emergency door so I had a very comfortable seat. Also, the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The flight departed around half an hour late."
Pros: "It was quite good at boarding, quick and efficient (from/to)."
Cons: "So noisy flight. I have never flown before in a such a noisy flight. Totally nightmare! Kids screaming and yelling and parents couldn't handle the situation all passengers were looking. Crew didn't ask if they need any help.."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."
Cons: "Due to technical issue with plane, passengers were delayed about 15-20 minutes on the tarmac in a crowded, hot shuttle bus with ineffective air conditioning and almost no fresh air coming in."
Pros: "I will never take flight with this company again!!!!! The worst ever shame on you"
Cons: "Layers"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"

Cons: "Boarding and getting off the plane via bus"
Cons: "we didn't get food at all. i purchased a cabin baggage for 40 dollar, and when i went to the check in i paid another 110 euro for checked in baggage although i had only one baggage!!!"
Pros: "The don't say the truth"

Flight was uneventful, boarding was late and should have started earlier

Short and easy

food and entertainment are not relevant for this flight

The lady at the check in desk was brutal. I explained her that I'm coming 2 com connection flights and I did not know that I have do to ht th the myself. She insisted and had me pa id the 50€

there was a delay for over 3 hours due to fog this is toatly acceptable, beacause of flight safety but since the fog was not unknown why we were boarded and than had to wait on plane without option to go back to the terminal the boarding was on foot so there was cnot supposed to be a big problem to get back and than reboard

Very strange boarding, long wait on foot after the gate.

The announcements in Bologna are very bad. We almost missed our flight. But the ground crew was very nice and helpful!

Pros: "Flight left on time and left early"
Cons: "Endless sales in cabin of duty free items"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Going on time without delay, more staff to avoid long lines"
Cons: "50euro check in fee was awesome"
Pros: "The desire to keep up with the schedule. impressive."
Cons: "Memmingen Airport does not call "Priority" card holders at the beginning of boarding passengers."
Cons: "We did not make this flight due to an unrealistic connection time. We had to buy a new ticket to get to our destination."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "Check in, ticket check, linking up, boarding process, etc.... Everything was done miserably poor, that way, I believe Ryan Air can make more money by getting people will purchase priority boarding, etc! That said, and as I stated above, the crew was fine."
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: "robbery"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Severe delays, poor comms, priority boarding means nothing when we’re all piled into the same bus and there’s a scrum for the stairs into the plane."
Pros: "We arrive safely"
Cons: "There was a delay in boarding but no communication from any of the five members of staff at the boarding gate as to why. I also purchased priority boarding but we were not seperated from the crowd."
Pros: "Absolute nothing!"
Cons: "Everything!"
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: "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."
Cons: "My hardshell luggage was heavily damaged during the flight and the policy of the company makes it almost impossible to get a refund that is otherwise guaranteed by any air travel company. They have created a loophole that is impossible to exit in what I can assume is the majority of the cases they receive."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Delays and lack of clarity and updating"
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."
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: "Flight delayed,missing item of myluggage worth150£"
Cons: "i realize you're a budget airline, but the flight was horrible. the seats were incredibly uncomfortable, and i could not recline them. the smell of the toilet was present in the entire plane. beverages (coffee, tea and water) should be provided for free, especially water. there was absolutely no organization in the airport in sofia, everyone just pushed and shoved to board. very poor experience."
Cons: "The flight the board on time"
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)"
Pros: "The flight was on time, easy to board, no issues with baggage. Overall great flight. Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Nice crew, good care of passengers, flight on time, new and comfortable planes"
Pros: "all within norms"
Pros: "i love ryainair"
Cons: "everything"
