We were 3 minutes late to the gate, along with at least a dozen other people trying to make this connection, but the flight did not wait for us. Awful. We were only late because there was only one person at the security checkpoint, and they checked every bag and every person one by one.
Don't choose KAYAK. They avoid any responsibility.
Plussat: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Plussat: "Kummatkin lennot olivat ajallaan ja kaikki onnistui sujuvasti ja nopeasti. Ekalla lennolla ( HEL - > ARN ) henkilökunta oli huippu!!"
Miinukset: "The check in staff at the gate could have been more friendly and paid better attention to customer care. I was standing in front of the counter with a simple Question but had to wait 5 minutes before the two agents got done with their own personal chat and thought about attending to me."
Plussat: "Very enjoyable great staff,"
Miinukset: "Lower prices"
Plussat: "The flights and food were good. no problems there."
Miinukset: "There was a baggage strike in Copenhagen. We sat on the tarmac for about an hour awaiting a gate opening. The flight to Chicago took off an hour late and we missed our connecting flight into Columbus. And our bags never arrived in Chicago."
Plussat: "Good service"
Miinukset: "That we had to pay for checked bagage on the return flight (Copenhagen to Newark) was an unpleasant and expensive surprise. In the 25+ years I have flown trans Atlantic with SAS, this is the first time that I’ve had to pay for luggage. No pre-warning .... :-(."
Plussat: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Miinukset: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Plussat: "Professional and courteous crew"
Miinukset: "Nothing, was a pleasant flight"
Plussat: "Nice interiors, relatively new airplanes, and very professional staff"
Miinukset: "Limited food ans beverage selection, and alcohol is served with an additional cost"
Plussat: "All good."
Miinukset: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Miinukset: "From Helsinki to Stockholm I missed my flight because we boarded late. Once in Stockholm I had to take two different planes for my destination and in result loosing time"
Plussat: "Loved the service. Nice small plane. Very easy boarding. This is a quick inter-city flight. The plane is small and agile. It did some pretty nimble turns and sharp banking that might be a little too exciting for some."
Plussat: "Everything was bearly acceptable"
Miinukset: "I asked the stewardess if she could fill my water bottle and was actually told that only one glass of water per person was allowed! Next time I would try Norwegian Air, which is known as a budget airline."
Plussat: "Overall I was very pleased with your level of service and would highly recommend SAS airline for anyone traveling from New York City New Jersey area abroad ! The planes were new clean and the level of service was exceptional . I am in the Hotel hospitality industry as an executive corporate chef . I enjoyed the service of your steward wearing the chef jacket ,, very impressive."
Miinukset: "Not much I didn’t like !"
Miinukset: "Noen hadde spydd på bordet på sete 1A, flyttet til 2A"
Plussat: "flight arrived on time"
Miinukset: "The food was poor, ventilation system in the cabin terrible. Smell from bathrooms during the whole flight, both ways. SAS lost our luggage and nobody seams to care about it. They know that there is a problem with luggage transfer on connecting flight, but don't bother to do anything about it. Customer service representative is not able to provide any information, doesn't even understand English well. Nobody answers the phone... At this point, we're still waiting for our bags"
Plussat: "Good movies and food good. Seats wide enough and mostly enough bathrooms."
Miinukset: "Handling of delay: - Massive delays and time wasted with individual case handling at the transfer centre in CPH when a more efficient group/bulk handling of passengers on the same flight with similar cases would make more sense. Handling of baggage during the delay. Un-necessary additional delays with baggage handling due to poor management."
Plussat: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Miinukset: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Plussat: "No comment since very short flight."
Miinukset: "My husband was unable to check in on line. SAS when contacted by phone which was difficult to do because it is hard to locate their number had no explanation other than maybe due to security. We missed a tour due to the time spent (unsuccessfully) trying to solve this problem."
Plussat: "Decent movie selection and very smooth landing"
Miinukset: "Surprised that Asian airlines typically havr larger and more comfortable seats. The SAS flight was fully booked and you could feel the cramped-ness of it. Also we weren't given the choice of what to have for our meals and were merely handed our food. Lastly, the flight was very, very uncomfortably warm."
Plussat: "Excellent staff!"
Miinukset: "All airplanes are 2 Noisy. (Of course this is not the fault of SAS). I use noise canceling headphones that helps a lot. EBut the background noise level always strikes me as too much!"
Plussat: "Everything about the flight was fine. Boarding, flying and retrieving luggage were all standard and went smoothly."
Miinukset: "I was upset that neither Kayak nor SAS provided any information about our ticket being a basic, basic ticket, by which I mean, did not include any checked luggage allowance in the price of the flight. I ended up paying 140 additional Euros for two bags. It appears that SAS's pricing is gaming the system when searching for flights or that Kayak is not being up-front about the type of fare they are advertising."
Plussat: "Easy boarding"
Miinukset: "Seat width"
Plussat: "The gate agent at check-in was very helpful and knowledgeable. The entire ground crew did a good job. The crew was friendly and attentive. The plane was clean. The entertainment options were more than adequate. Bathrooms were well kept."
Miinukset: "I know you can't expect coach to be luxurious. But the space between seats in the airline industry in general have gotten ridiculously small. Words were exchanged between my wife and the lady (nothing extreme, but still) in the seat in front of her. When the lady leaned her seat back, my wife could barely watch her movie. All in all, I would definitely fly SAS again."
Plussat: "Nice planes with all the basics you need"
Miinukset: "Terrible food"
Plussat: "Food, staff and video access was excellent."
Miinukset: "The seating was very uncomfortable and cramped!!"
Plussat: "Will choose SAS again."
Miinukset: "WiFi didn't work and movie selection could be a bit better. That's all."
Miinukset: "Crew was rude. The bathrooms became disgusting halfway thru the foight w no toilet paper. For 6 hours we were down to one bathroom in coach. Unacceptable. My daughter never got her final meal and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her about it and never returned w food. Never fly SAS"
Plussat: "Quick flight"
Miinukset: "1 hour delays and 70 euro bag fee"
Miinukset: "Got delayed 13-hours in an airport with no SAS staff present to communicate anything to all of the passengers. We were not accommodated with hotel vouchers or provided with alternative travel options to our final destinations and missed flights. SAS did not cancel the flight after the first 4-hours of delay which is illegal by EU Standards. None of us were able to leave the airport as we were not told any information about potential flight departure times and it would have been $2000 to re-book with a different airline. No answers were given by SAS over the phone and their staff seemed unaware of any problems."
Plussat: "Friendly crew. First meal was good."
Miinukset: "Small movie selection. Second meal/snack not great. Older plane (still had ashtrays in arm rests)."
Plussat: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Plussat: "Courteous staff, great food, CLEAN airplane, spacious seats. Zero complaints and WAY better than any domestic airlines (United, Delta, American) based on personal experience!"
Miinukset: "Although it was entirely SAS's fault that I missed my connection in CPH, they refused to reroute me on another carrier. They routed me on another SAS flight to ORD, and from there back to BOS. Hence my arrival was delayed from 3.20 PM to 12.130 AM after midnight."
Plussat: "the plane arrived"
Miinukset: "booking Boarding comfort Food service"
Plussat: "passed out i-pads loaded with movies, magazines and music food was good"
Miinukset: "very small plane for trans-atlantic flight (17 rows) only one free soda, then they charge you"
Plussat: "The movies, the seats, the food,"
Miinukset: "The attitud of te attendant,"
Plussat: "The flight was good : excellent pilot and crew. Good takeoff and landing. Short but sweet flight."
Miinukset: "Leg room is a nit short for tall people. Everything else was great."
Miinukset: "Entertainment systems were not working for many of us."
Miinukset: "No food, no entertainment. Bring a book."
Plussat: "SAS agent in Oslo was very nice and quickly rebooked our flight to Bergen when we missed our scheduled one due to luggage delays and confusion at Oslo as to Customs procedure."
Miinukset: "Not very many current movies, very cramped."
Plussat: "Short flight, friendly crew."
Miinukset: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Plussat: "Flight itself was OK"
Miinukset: "It was very difficult to understand from the reservation or the website if I need to pay extra for a checked baggage. My emails weren't answered, and when I finally realized that I did have to pay - it was 85$ for one suitcase!!!!! SAS - are you out of your mind?! The suitcase cost more than the flying ticket! Sorry, but no SAS for me anymore. BAD BAD service and exploiting of customer's naivety. I'm furious."
Miinukset: "Wasn't assigned a seat and had to stand in a long line to wait to confirm that I had a seat for a flight I booked over 3 months earlier."
Plussat: "The last time I purchased a flight with them it was canceled. No previous notice . No solution . They wouldn't even answer the phone ."
Plussat: "The plane itself was beautiful and the seatback entertainment was serviceable."
Miinukset: "Boarding was an hour late for no discernible reason, food for a nine hour flight was for pay only at about eight dollars a sandwich, crew was rude, and seats were very uncomfortable and close. I would never fly this airline again and will tell my friends to avoid it."
Plussat: "Everything turned out well but..."
Miinukset: "Neither the website nor subsequent communication let me know I could buy dinner or snacks. Nor did I know that blankets and headsets were not provided. It was actually better than having carts blocking the aisles for so long. There was just insufficient information ahead of time"
Miinukset: "Every aspect of this flight was terrible"
Plussat: "Friendly flight crew. Good price point."
Miinukset: "Getting drinks right away when in premium class - and more periodic checks"
Plussat: "I know that the airlines can't do anything about this, but when you have a nice crew and polite passengers around you, it makes this long transatlantic flight so much better. I have had some horrible people next to me on these long flights and believe me I could not wait to get off. This one was a very pleasant one, time just flew by- before I know it, we were in New York."
Miinukset: "Tight space for a 6'2" guy but I know it is a norm on all of the commercial airplanes and the people around me managed just fine."
Plussat: "Seating was very comfortable. Very spacious for economy."
Miinukset: "No complimentary food or drink on a transatlantic flight is unacceptable. Was not told ahead of time that food had to be pre-purchased. Charging even for water is ridiculous."
Miinukset: "Not enough leg room, room between seats and the chair didn't recline enough to be comfortable. A little claustrophobic. More movie options and more drink service would be an improvement."
Plussat: "Plane, fight time, boarding speed, efficiency all excellent"
Miinukset: "Departure was suddenly changed from 4 to 7 without clear announcement. On the Norwegian terminal nor on the departure boards nothing was indicated nor had anybody bothered to leave a note or sign on the Norwegian Terminal 4. I discovered at the last minute as I hearD a “last boarding call” announcement in the Knick of time"
Plussat: "Dreamliner is an excellent ride."
Miinukset: "Food quality is sub-par. Crew service level is minimalist."
Plussat: "Flight was good. Seats were comfy and spacious on this flight. Food wasn’t included on the flight as I didn’t upgrade my tickets but I rather pay for the food then pay more for the ticket. Overall I had a great first experience flying Norwegian."
Miinukset: "It would be nice if for long hauls they would at least offer something to drink."
Miinukset: "Also no video screens for such a long flight"
Plussat: "Arrival and departure close to on schedule. Flight crew somewhat helpful during the boarding process finding space for carry on luggage."
Miinukset: "Economy tickets don't get offered a glass of water the entire trip!! Completely ignored by flight attendants during flight."
Plussat: "comfortable seats. great entertainment."
Miinukset: "it was late. it seems to always be late."
Plussat: "Nothing The Norwegian is a low fare charter flight I was not aware that it was a known fact and payed for business and got regular economy"
Miinukset: "The airline is a no name charter The seat belt wasn’t functioning Food was served from a box/ horrible It was late more than 8 hours"
Plussat: "Clean and newer plane. Liked darkening shade and entertainment."
Miinukset: "We couldn’t get to bathrooms after going through passport area and on to gate. Then we had to wait a long time before flight took off. There was a technical delay, mid takeoff. My first flight with them. Next time I’ll order a meal. Nothing given free like water or pretzels Crew ok, but not great."
Miinukset: "Everything. Customer service. Plane switched. Paid for seat reservations and that wasn't honored."
Miinukset: "Kind of a bumpy landing and the flight was delayed. Baggage check in terminals were down as well, which caused quite a bit of delay"
Plussat: "Check in was prompt, and easy. Boarding was quick and on time. Staff was pleasant. I don't know why they get bad reviews, their guidelines are easy to follow, and I've been lucky enough to have no problems with them yet."
Miinukset: "The seats are a bit crammed, but manageable"
Plussat: "Liked: that it didn't crash, I guess."
Miinukset: "Didn't like: we had to beg for water from the staff (there and back) just because we didn't pay for a meal. We didn't even get offered snacks on either flight. One way was 13 hours and the way back was nearly a 12 hour flight. There was also no wi-fi, and even though this is a first world problem, it's 2018 and the flights were longer than some people stay awake in a whole day. That's ridiculous. Kayak is chill, but Norwegian will no longer be an option for my travels."
Miinukset: "I missed my flight waiting at the wrong gate( there was another flight to Stockholm, my connecting city, being conducted by another airline) I did not notice until it was too late. The airline neglected to offload my checked luggage, refused to do accommodate me with a change fee and now has lost my bag and has no idea where it is."
Miinukset: "The delay was too much and it affected me badly"
Plussat: "Absolutely nothing"
Miinukset: "The worst flight I ever had"
Plussat: "787 Aircraft is nice. Decent selection of in-flight entertainment options. The main reason to fly Norwegian is low cost."
Miinukset: "Boarding was delayed 30 min because Norwegian isn't very well organized. The boarding lounge at Gatwick has half the capacity of the aircraft, so people were packed in to a tiny space until boarding actually started. In-seat USB charger didn't work."
Plussat: "Flight times avoid local traffic for departure and arrival."
Miinukset: "You get nickel and dimed for everything. Have to pay separately for a meal 72 hours before flight or miss out. Have to pay for a blanket. Cramped seats. Staff about what you'd expect given the rest. Will avoid this airline in the future despite its travel times. Worst of all was the outsourced phone customer service. The app would not work several times for basic things like adding luggage. I was treated as if I was the problem. It was surreal. Seriously, never again."
Miinukset: "After four hours on the tarmac at JFK we had to wait three hours to get our luggage. That’s 7 hours wasted and loved ones waiting to provide rides."
Plussat: "TV screens in backs of seats"
Miinukset: "Generally not a comfortable flight. Boarding took ages both ways. I’m generally not down for ‘budget’ international flights - without adding the $60 meal service each way they don’t even offer you a water, let alone a coffee. I had to ask for water in the back and they were stingy about giving it out insisting they had to go in little plastic cups, very inconvenient."
Plussat: "Barcelona didn't tell us our flight was delayed until an hour after we were supposed to take off. At least have the decency to let us know in case we have to make other plans."
Plussat: "Ordering menu was fun and convenient."
Miinukset: "Hot sandwhich, cold sandwhich... didn't matter what we tried to order. It all was horrid. And I like bad food. I like bad airplane food. But the hot sandwhich the first time was still frozen in the middle. The second time it was all warm but still taste was awful. The cold sandwhich... also gross. And I don't mind bad samdwhiches from a 711 or a gas station at a rest stop. But I could hardly touch either of these."
Miinukset: "Terrible meals. Waste of my money."
Plussat: "Nothing really. It took off, it landed."
Miinukset: "2 hours delayed. Old plane, no entertainment or food. Indifferent crew. Nothing to recommend it really and no reason to endorse choosing this airline."
Plussat: "Crew were attentive."
Miinukset: "Front row passengers were loud and inconsiderate the whole way across. Couldn't sleep. Perhaps an announcement to inform passengers to please keep conversation to an appropriate level for most want to sleep would be nice."
Plussat: "Dreamliner is great, no turbulence, fast and comfortable Movie selection is good Service was good"
Miinukset: "I noticed that the temperature on Norwegian is kept a bit low comparatively to other Dreamliner carrier I have flown with; I hope this is not to sell off more blankets; which are not free..."
Plussat: "The crew was lovely and charming and attentive. The movie selection was great and well appreciated on the long flight back to the US"
Plussat: "The engine purred like a kitten. Seats, free videos, easy access to order drinks & food w tap of your finger. Friendly, courteous greets you w a warm smile. Spacious airplane."
Miinukset: "Norwegian airlines needs to tell their customers that their luggage was left behind in Stockholm. We are exhausted from the long travels & are even more pissed off when multiple customers kept waiting for their luggage. I felt even more horrible to the family that was taking a cruise the next day. Can you believe Norwegian airlines are closed on Sunday. Couldn't talk to customer service until Monday when they opened. Bad customer satisfaction;("
Plussat: "In-cabin staff & service fine. No complications with baggage - appreciated when we are traveling as part of international trip."
Miinukset: "Boarding process in Bergen a bit disorganized"
Plussat: "The crew was reasonably customer-friendly and the individual entertainment options made long flight easier, and economy class at the back of the airplane was as comfortable as can be expected."
Miinukset: "The pre-boarding and boarding experience was dismal, with extended delays requiring leaving the gate area accompanied by vague explanations and conflicting instructions about when to return to the gate, when to expect an update, and how to expect the update to be communicated. Instead, ground agents were rude and blamed passengers' confusion on us rather than their own lack of coordination and communication among themselves."
Plussat: "It was on time and the seats were comfortable."
Miinukset: "The policies around hand luggage, checked luggage, and meals were all very unclear and we did not know what was included with our flight. In addition, they opened all of the windows electeonically, long before landing, waking us up."
Plussat: "The flight was on time and the staff were very nice."
Miinukset: "Boarding was chaotic. No one gave any instructions so the passengers crowded the gate area seeking an advantage to board. Flight was very crowded in the Economy cabin. Fortunately it was short."
Plussat: "Friendly attendants, comfortable seats, individual entertainment consoles at every seat."
Miinukset: "My entertainment screen didn't work so I couldn't watch any movies while others could"
Miinukset: "Seats were small, did not have modern amenities (movie screens at each seat, USB ports)"
Miinukset: "I'm trying to solve that issue but their is no help . I was going to the airport before 3 hours but my car start acting weird and I got over heated . I called taxi and I went to the front disc airport at 9:55 pm and their is no one at the front disck to help me . I called Norwegian air line but they said .they cannot put me on another flight . And I have to call kayak . Can you please call me at 3215574277"
Plussat: "I loved the flight"
Miinukset: "Paying for water is somewhat strange"
Plussat: "The windows you could make them light or dark"
Miinukset: "We had a 10 hour flight we were so cramped we could barely move, the crew were miserable and failed to interact with many passengers. While I was in America I ran out of money and tried to contact the air line which they responded to my message but then took my details and to this day I'm still waiting for a reply for the earlier flight home ( considering I'm home now but I wasn't impressed with that. Overall I wouldn't fly with this airline again. Awful experience"
Plussat: "Lots of space Seat is comfy Great crew New planes No frills...plastic glasses and cutlery"
Miinukset: "Seat didn't lie flat TVs can shine in your face while trying to sleep"
Miinukset: "NO WI-FI"
Plussat: "Low cost (£300) rtn London to Caribbean in January."
Miinukset: "" hours late departing both directions."
Plussat: "Row of three seats to myself"
Miinukset: "Slow boarding"
The flight was 30mins late at first then with delays getting the plan started we were stuck on a red hot plane with no air conditioning for at least another 45mins before it even taxied. It was then a bumpy and uncomfortable flight. Really disappointed in Ryanair
Fast, good loads in and out, totally worth of price.
Arrived early at destination😎
Miinukset: "They Said I can t fly . Wtf !"
Miinukset: "Gate was closed without putting a notice on the boarding."
Plussat: "Terrible crew rude and impolite"
Miinukset: "Entertainment online at least by the app"
Miinukset: "They should have entertainment online at least by the app"
Plussat: "Although flight was late they made up time pretty well"
Miinukset: "Flight to and from Carcassonne is rarely on time"
Miinukset: "We lost our bag."
Plussat: "Save trip Good flight"
Miinukset: "Chaos at start off"
Plussat: "The price of the ticket was cheap..."
Miinukset: "But we paid for it with our luggage. The staff was extremely unhelpful. They sneak up on you with extra charges. Not worth it! Rather use my money for a better flight and be more comfortable. They didn't even have water on the flight that I could have without purchasing."
Plussat: "Crew and flight was ok"
Miinukset: "Checkin was the worst nightmare I have ever seen."
Plussat: "The take off was very smooth"
Miinukset: "It was a bit too warm"
Miinukset: "The flight was delayed 40min without any explanation or announcement from captain. We just sat on the runway for 40min."
Miinukset: "Flight was delayed missed my last connecting train"
Plussat: "The crew"
Miinukset: "Uncomfortable seats"
Miinukset: "The staff st the gate was extremely rude to all people. If you asked a question you got a rude answer/response. Was not a good flight at all"
Miinukset: "Flight delayed, so usual knock on effect with lifts, people coming to meet."
Miinukset: "Flight was delayed, very uncomfortable seat, excessive waiting time even after landing, cabin crew weren’t welcoming"
Miinukset: "Sitze, so steil (ohne Lehnenverstellung) und so hart, dass man nach 3 Std. Flug mit erheblichen Schmerzen von Board geht. So kalt, dass wir die Winterjacken anbehalten mussten."
Miinukset: "My flight was missed from Stanstead to Dublin and RyanAir employees did not help me, they only wanted to sell me another expensive ticket."
Miinukset: "Being charged $50 a bag was not cool when the tix only cost $22"
Plussat: "For the price what is there to complain about."
Miinukset: "The flight arrives too late but just early enough not receive any reimbursement regulated by either regulations. Terrible flight! Everytime I fly with Ryanair I always tell myself: last flight! Hopefully next time I listen to myself"
Plussat: "Very cheap flight, attentive and polite cabin crew"
Miinukset: "Delayed flight but left standing at the departure gate in Dublin waiting 30 mins for no reason"
Plussat: "Every thing"
Miinukset: "Very good very grateful"
Plussat: "Hard to find anything"
Miinukset: "Small cramped, uncomfortable old and tired plane. Extra for everything...."
Plussat: "New plane. Fast easy boarding with priority pass"
Miinukset: "No back of seat storage for stuff. Food and drink expemsive No entertainment"
Miinukset: "Our flight from Menorca to Barcelona was delayed. We got to Barcelona for our flight to Berlin about 3 minutes after checked baggage was closed. They refused to let us check our bags so we had to go through security with are checked luggage. I had to throw away three beautiful bottles of French and Spanish wine. They also told us that the next flight they could get us on was Sunday when our flight that we were on was on a Thursday. So, we ran through the airport, through security, and through the terminal to get to our flight. We arrived at our gate to see that no one had boarded and an announcement that our flight had been delayed an hour. Not one person on the Ryanair team told us about the delay. It was an awful experience and I will never fly cheap airlines again. It's not worth the savings."
Miinukset: "Terrible delays, and the flight wasn't even cheap."
Plussat: "The APP works well"
Miinukset: "Luggage hassles - even when you prepaid."
Plussat: "Timely departure, relatively smooth check-in"
Miinukset: "Too much in-flight advertising, no complimentary drinks."
Plussat: "Best: The flight was direct, not routed through distant cities as is the case with some low fairs from Stockholm to London."
Miinukset: "Worst: The procedures for getting from the airport entrance to the actual aircraft. Only a few minutes to know the gate, thus getting to the gate is rushed. Also the line for checking in was long, and there was no sigh to let me know that I needed to check in even though I already had a boarding pass."
Plussat: "The plane took off and landed"
Miinukset: "The airline appears to understaff or not train their check in counter staff very well. It took nearly one hour to go through a 30-40 meter baggage check line. If there hadn't been a delay boarding the flight I may not have been allowed on. I arrived 90 minutes before this in-country flight as well."
Miinukset: "Hidden baggage fees and fees if you don't print out your boarding pass. Fewer Ryanair staff working the desk meant that the check-in line was monstrous. They don't automate, so they had to walk us down the hall to another office to check whether we had paid in advance for our baggage."
Plussat: "cheap tickets nearly on time close airports (by car)"
Miinukset: "very little seat space and uncomfortable airports are hard to reach"
Plussat: "Head steward was very solicitous of my husband who was experiencing first signs of food poisoning. Allowed him to stand at front while passengers were boarding to get fresh air. Checked on him several times during the flight."
Miinukset: "Overcrowded and no leg room. Knees were up against the back seat of seat in front. There was NO SOAP in any of the three toilets! When I asked attendant the apologized but didn't have any. Gate person pulled us out of boarding line to make us check our bags even though our bags were smaller than most everyone else's carryons. We were the only ones that were checked. Can't help but feel that we were profiled as Americans.traveling."
Plussat: "Early arrival."
Plussat: "The crew was nice. The flight was safe. Boarding was efficient."
Miinukset: "Questionable ethics in terms of check in. You have to check in online at least two hours before or prepare to pay a fee. This is not spelled out upon purchase of ticket. When checking in, you need to print or download boarding pass or pay a fee when arriving at airport. You must pay for a checked bag before arrival to airport or (you guessed it) pay a fee. We were fortunate to avoid all fees except for the checked bag fee (a convenience fee on top of the price to check a bag). Ryanair's emails provided no link or instructions to check a bag. Also, springing all this information on us two days before travel was sketchy at best. My guess is a healthy percentage of customers use Ryanair for flights in the middle of a vacation and investigating these details are the last thing on travelers' minds. Ryanair knows exactly what they're doing revealing the info when they do."
Miinukset: "Worse experience I ever had with an airline in over 45 years of flying. They charge you if you don't check in online but it took me numerous attempts over a couple of days to check in. The website is horrible. I checked a bag online but when I got to the check in they had no record of it and I had to pay extra. If you are not an EU citizen you have to present a printed boarding pass. If you are traveling this can be difficult. That flight was over a half hour late and no explanation was given. It was an almost one hour wait for bags. I will never use this airline again."
Plussat: "En general fue una buena experiencia para ser un vuelo low cost. Importante saber que los asientos no se reclinan y que si el vuelo va lleno sólo caben las primeras 90 maletas en cabina, las demás se pueden despachar al momento del abordaje sin cargo."
Miinukset: "Cambian de Gate bastante, así que hay que estar atentos. A nosotros nos cambiaron tres veces de Gate en nuestro vuelo de Madrid a Dublín."
Plussat: "It was cheap"
Miinukset: "Unaware you were not allowed to take coffee on the jet bridge let alone the plane. I guess so you will buy theirs? Wish I had not spent 4 pounds on a coffee they confiscated."
Miinukset: "The flight was delayed 3 hours. We stood at the gate in line for half an hour before we were taken back i side the airport. There was no announcement that we are reboarding"
Plussat: "On time, low cost base ticket fare"
Miinukset: "Hidden fees, such as paying 55 euros for a carry-on bag that they claim did not fit in their ridiculously small box at the check-in gate. But, we were the only ones targeted for this additional fee (other travelers had much bigger bags, and were not charged the fee). I assume it's because we had US Passports, while the others were local travelers. Warning: you will pay low ticket prices, but they will burn you on added fees. Consider all hidden fees when comparing prices."
Miinukset: "1.5 hours late on board, but they kept insisting it was on time. Don't know if hey were trying to avoid some kind of delayed statistic, but we landed in Rome over an hour late."
