Contra: "Ryanair announced that we could postpone the flights without any cost due to corona virus and when I tried to reach them/to change the flight date the change tax was still there."
Pro: "From pillar to post not one delay."
Pro: "On time, quick boarding. Comfortable flight"
Contra: "No air bridges"
Contra: "Staff at check-in desk were rude. My carry on luggage was taken from me and placed in the hold even though I booked my flight long before Ryanair changed their rules about charging for carry on luggage. The sticky tab that the member of staff placed on my back has left marks all over the handle."
Pro: "The stay"
Contra: "Ridiculous long wait even though Ryanair said to still go for the original time. 9hours in the airport is not good enough"
Contra: "The time of the layover between a Ryanair flight that requires you to check baggage and then pick up from the carousel, go through customs, and an Aer Lingus flight that you then had to check into at the Aer Lingus desk (online check in was not an option) and go BACK through security IS NOT HUMANLY POSSIBLE. This was a huge waste of time and money and I do not recommend using two airlines, especially not if it involves RyanAir and the Manchester airport. I have to cancel reservations that I will not be able to make the rest of the time I’m at this destination. Moving flights cost me €60 and missing my reservation at an escape room is an emotional cost that cannot be compensated. Very unsatisfied."
Pro: "The crew"
Contra: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pro: "front-line staff were sincere. Plane was well-maintained."
Contra: "Chat staff wasn't competent."
Contra: "Delayed, then slow luggage reclaim (I believe that's your problem rather than the airport)"
Pro: "By the time you were up it was on its wayndowm 40 mins"
Pro: "The flight itself was great.... just the 90 min delay that put a downer on things."
Contra: "The 90 minute delay was a bit of a killer... also we where not told about the delay when checking in our hold luggage.... one of my party smoke and where a bit put out to find out about the delay once they had gone through customs etc and then couldn’t smoke."
Pro: "Flight delayed, 20 minutes to get through passport control, chaos at the car park due to changes & fees! Welcome back to England ☹️"
Contra: "Ryanair delays, Manchester airport in general, poor and anti-travelers focused"
Contra: "Flight didn’t leave until about 11 as boardinf didn’t start until after 10 so we arrived in Manchester at midnight."
Pro: "Crew were fabulous, boarding on time and was quick and easy."
Contra: "Plane was filthy, covered in rubbish, crisps, dirty seats. There were no drinks left to buy as it was the last flight of the day, no milk for tea which wasn't good."
Pro: "Cabin crew - efficient, friendly and with a sense of humour."
Contra: "Having to buy Prority boarding to guarantee access to the overhead bins. Seats not that comfortable. Little legroom (i’m average height at best)."
Pro: "Seating was comfortable and more leg room than some other airlines random seat allocated no charge no complaint. Only bought cup of tea so can’t comment on food. Tea was fine."
Contra: "The seemingly squashy way of making sure hand luggage is tagged. Why not use a system of gradual approach. Don’t like euro charging if card used. Seems strange. Cash sterling ok."
Pro: "crew very good"
Contra: "2 hour delay and no information, even changed boarding gate and did not inform passengers who was already waiting."
Pro: "The crew were lovely and the Chicken tikka masala was too, it could have done with a little more chicken in it though."
Contra: "The hour delay in Rome and the heavy landing in Manchester really scared the hell out of me."
Pro: "On time fly gut and prompt baggage handling"
Contra: "Waiting time, unfriendly crew, pilot out of the cabin chatting with the door wide open."
Contra: "Getting charged 220EUR to check in at the airport."
Pro: "Easy and quick and cheap"
Contra: "The seats are too steep inclined"
Pro: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Contra: "Seats were very uncomfortable, not even a space/pocket slot on the rear of the seat in front to place a book, phone, bottle of water etc Boarding was delayed and this appeared to be due to cabin bags being moved to hold luggage but had not been tagged in advance. Seemed a bit disorganised. Fair enough have the rule about potentially putting them in the hold but make sure they are pre tagged. Flight delayed as a result."
Contra: "We were forced to get on the aircraft when it arrived late, with another 737 taxiing next to it( I know illegal). Then forced to sit on the plane for nearly 3 hours on the ground in heat. Staff were rude and awful. Everything was stupidly expensive, even water!!! When we eventually got to Manchester we had to wait in the plane again for 45minutes for the bus to arrive to take us to the airport. Only one person on passport control. Where our bags were all in a pile on the floor because of some malfunction. Ryanair flights are hell!!"
Pro: "3 hour delay due to an Italian air traffic control strike. Not the crews fault but they handled it well, especially the captain who spoke to everyone face to face"
Contra: "The selection of food was dismal and expensive, glad ok didn't buy as the quality looked poor"
Contra: "40 minutes baking on the bus to take us to the aircraft, Lack of communication Disrespectful and bad attitude of the crew Paying £80 to put luggage in hold to be told as I didn’t report that my case was damaged when I arrived at 01:00 am (in the morning) with an onward journey of 2 hrs I could not now place a complaint! Despite having photographic evidence!! No tap water available - given ice and boiling water I am done flying with Ryanair"
Pro: "The crew didn’t allow a very visibly drunk passenger on board which was good. We were concerned about him coming on the plane so were very pleased they didn’t allow him to board."
Contra: "The plane was delayed and when we did board it was very clear that absolutely no cleaning had taken place. Appreciate the effort not to be any later than we were but not nice to get to a seat with crisps and malteasers everywhere."
Pro: "On time and coat effective"
Contra: "At FRA Airport ryanair sits about a 20min drive from the terminal. Adds 20min to boarding and landing procedures. But this is compensated with FRA being a super efficient airport at the baggage carousel and border control"
Contra: "Dirty seats, tables and floor. Both times we checked in and because we didn't pay for early check in we all got separated despite there being room to all sit together or at least in pairs. Had to pay to move to sit together. It costs £80 to bring a suitcase for the hold, however if you don't pay for priority boarding your handluggage gets placed in the hold anyway despite there being more than enough space in overhead lockers. If I had known how much it would be to pay for the 'extras' which area really basic requirements, I would not have booked with Ryanair. Next time I'll be going with another company who actually provide a basic service"
Pro: "Accessibility guys in both Bergamo and Manchester were brilliant."
Contra: "Delayed for 2 hours the first hour was on the departure boards - fair enough but almost all of the second hour was on the plane with hardly any information at all."
Contra: "Delayed flight then held in pens for ages then held on the plane too."
Pro: "Ryanair still not putting their customers first. Poor experience checking in online. Had to use online chat which needed several attempts to get an answer, be careful calling Ryanair as they charge 13p per minute"
Pro: "Flight was on time"
Contra: "Couldn't take on bag as not priority. Booked extra leg room seats expecting priority but no longer Won't travel with Ryan air again"
Contra: "30 minutes waiting, New lugguage policy!"
Pro: "Early take off and excellent all round"
Pro: "Friendly staff and comfortable seats"
Contra: "The delay."
Pro: "Staff were friendly and helpful. Flight to of only a few minutes late, considering the appalling weather back in the UK, I expected more of a delay."
Contra: "Rear door wasn't accessible, so all passengers were loaded through the front. A bit more organisation of getting rear seated passengers on first would have facilitated a faster/safer boarding for all."
Pro: "Boarding was relatively quick"
Contra: "Left late and the staff were a little rude"
Pro: "Arrived early, a bit confused as to why our bags had to go in the hold but they arrived in a very timely fashion and although the 3 of us were separated, I was in a fire exit seat and my long legged son also had extra leg room at the front. Bonus!"
Contra: "I wish the seats could recline just a little. I can't read without feeling sick so a 3 hour flight can be pretty uncomfortable."
Pro: "Easy online check in with no need to visit a desk anyway, unlike Jet2 who enforce an online check in only for you to have to do it all again in person."
Contra: "Unnecessarily held at the gate for 45 minutes as the departures boards showed the flight as boarding - no way to get out of this area so stuck. Flight left late and then had to queue up to get access to a drop off area so missed my onward train connection. Paid for food in pounds but given change in Euros - disgraceful - don't offer to take payment in a currency you can't provide change for. Overall a poor experience, will not be flying with RyanAir again."
Pro: "That it took off and landed. That's all."
Contra: "Being made to queue for almost an hour, with staff seeing and allowing people to push in front because they had a child (over 5y.o) with no regard for people who queued. Staff then came from the back to the front of the queue telling people they had to put their carry-on luggage in the hold. When questioned why, the response was "you either do it or we won't let you fly. You don't like it? What do you want? It's Ryanair, deal with it." Very disappointing, flown many times with Ryanair but never been treated like that. Also disgusted with the new policy of having to pay to sit next to your partner of the same booking. Disgusting."
Pro: "That it is over"
Contra: "Extra leg room seats at the front of the plane don't actually have more legroom, and priority boarding is a farce if those without it can board the plane before you"
Pro: "Seat ok"
Contra: "Delay with no information.this is an airline that although cheap has no interest in customers"
Pro: "Left 15 mins late due to idiots not making the gate on time and luggage having to be found for them and arrived on time in Manchester so well done Ryanair!!"
Contra: "Kept staying for 1 hour unnecessarily. Plane late. Flight late, arriving 1 hour late. run out of many refreshment options, plane dirty."
Contra: "The seats are uncomfortable hard plastic"
