  • RYANAIR - No frills, but it got me there

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Accommodating in a stressful time, second plane was very comfortable, cheap
    Cons: Distant airports, non-reclining seats on one flight, must pay for food/drink

    Summary: I didn’t have particularly high expectations when I booked my flight on RyanAir. My flight was from London Stansted to Venice Treviso and for 100 pounds a person I basically was expecting a cattle car which would dump me off far from my ... read more

    Pros: Gets you from A to B as advertised.
    Cons: None that you are not prepared for.

    Summary: I regularly fly Ryanair...perhaps 20 times a year....and have been doing so for 5 years.  They offer the cheapest options for the route I have to use and as a family of 5 regularly save me around 300 to 400 pounds for us to travel over the ... read more

  • Ryanair - Cheapest around if you can find the right price

    Dec 5, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap budget airline that are quite reliable
    Cons: No frills and not always that comfortable and hidden costs

    Summary: Ryanair are a no frills budget airline, claiming to be the cheapest airline around flying to Europe. Some people hate them and some people love them but you can't argue with the value for money they provide. As someone who uses Ryanair once a ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: cheap, good connectons.
    Cons: uncomfortable, service limited to minimum, many additional costs.

    Summary: I flew with them quite many times. Why? They have (or at least had) good connections in Europe and good pricing. However, there is a reason why they don't cost much...It's uncomfortably enough to fly, but with Ryan Air it's a whole new experience. ... read more

  • No No No!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None. Even "low price" is misleading. Others, like Vueling, offer same price for better service.
    Cons: Everything.

    Summary: Avoid Ryanair like the plague! First, website doesn't clearly show all fees until after credit card is charged. Second, baggage fee was 10 euros the first time I checked, 20 euros when I returned to reserve (and didn't), then back to 10 euros when I ... read more

    Pros: Getting off after the flight was over
    Cons: Flying with Ryanair.  Spend a bit more, go with Easyjet

    Summary: Where do I start.  I would love to say that i'm happy to support all things Irish as I am from Ireland but in this case I am ashamed.  I have only flown once with Ryanair and that was enough.  I was travelling with an infant and in ... read more

    Pros: A good deal can be had!
    Cons: You might think you had a good deal but it was not

    Summary: Should I give my money to mr o'Leary?Mr O'Leary(CEO of Ryanair) is probably Europe's most in genius and hated businessman at the same time. We have to understand that eccentric statements make people comment. The more comments the ... read more

    Pros: The plane showed up took off and landed.
    Cons: Imagine being asked for $312 dollars extra each way for a $462 flight round trip.

    Summary: There is a real problem with Ryanair charging for the extra weight for baggage on their flights. Do not fly this Ryanair. If your luggage weighs more than 6.9lbs you are in for a rude awakening. (Think about when you buy groceries equaling 6.9lbs or ... read more

    Cons: priority boarding at expense of kids safety,rip-off prices for drinks/food, small baggage allowances

    Summary: I have just returned from a trip to London using RyanAir, and am so annoyed at their new 'priority boarding' scam, they are now charging ԃ each way to priority board passengers at the expense of people with children. I have 3 young children and ... read more

    Pros: It gets you there on time
    Cons: There...may not be close to where you really want to be

    Summary: After the European airline industry was deregulated in 1997, a pioneer company promoting low-cost, no frills travel was Ryanair, an Irish airline that had actually been around since 1986. Now Ryanair is approaching 1 billion euros in sales per year and ... read more

    Pros: Cheap, quick check in
    Cons: Cranky flight attendants, expensive food, distance from airports to city

    Summary: I have travelled 3 times now on Ryanair in the past year or so (CIA-GRO, CIA-BVA, GRO-BVA). As the tickets were extremely cheap, all under 30 Euro, I did not expect luxury. The check-ins were busy each time, even at 5am in the morning, though they ... read more

    Pros: cheap
    Cons: dishonest, no refund, no customer service

    Summary: On April 13th, 2006 I bought a ticket directly from Ryanair's website. They were supposed to operate a flight from FCO (Rome) to ALG (Alghero, Sardinia) on May 11th, 2006. I got an email from them in a few weeks later (late April) stating that because ... read more

    Pros: Cheap. Punctual (because they fly from obscure airports with few flights).
    Cons: Everything else.

    Summary: I have flown something over 200 Ryanair flights in the last five years, mainly between England and Ireland, but also quite often to France and Spain. My criterion is: if the price is up to 20 per flight (each leg) higher on any other airline -- I ... read more

    Pros: If you book way ahead of time, it can be cheap.
    Cons: No service, wrong information, and nobody to talk to.

    Summary: One thing to be said for Ryanair is that they can be quite cheap. Well, okay, they’re ‘cheap’ one way or the other; what I mean is, they can offer some low-cost tickets. Servicing selected destinations in Europe, you can go online and book ... read more

    Pros: Can be cheap Fly to small airports overseas which may be convenient.
    Cons: No seat allocation. Rude staff.

    Summary: I have used Ryanair a number of times over the past four years to travel to Italy. It used to be true that it was possible to pick up some incredibly cheap fares, even by the time airport taxes etc had been added (these are not included in the fares ... read more

    Pros: Cheap Makes much of Europe easily accessable English Spoken
    Cons: Prices can be unpredictable Out of the way airports can double travel time

    Summary: Ryan Air has redefined travel in Europe. I've spent two years backpacking Europe (1 year trips, 2 times) and I've traveled on RyanAir numerous times. RyanAir models themselves after Southwest in the United States. They cut costs, have no seat ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cheapness
    Cons: cheapness leads to tackiness.

    Summary: Well it seems that Ryanair has pretty much started dominating Europe in terms of the number of connections available. It would also appear that there isn't much to say that hasn't already been stated. So I'll just tell you my personal experiences and ... read more

    Pros: Ryanair offer cheap departures to many destinations from local UK airports.
    Cons: Do not expect much by level of service. Flights are cancelled.

    Summary: We were treated badly on Saturday 12th November by Ryanair. We were checked in at Venice Treviso and passed through security into the tiny lounge area. The airport was shrouded in fog, and even the security men said as we passed through that there ... read more

    Pros: Cheap, perfect if everything goes to plan
    Cons: If anything goes wrong, they're quite useless. Forget them and use an alternative airline.

    Summary: I've flown with Ryanair on several occasions and though not impressed with their service or rather lack of it, it was cheap and always got us where we wanted to go and back again. This time we flew from Hahn to Jerez - on time. Nothing to complain ... read more

    Cons: Open seating, selective 'rules', inconsiderate service, miserable crew

    Summary: I flew from Edinburgh to Dublin and back on Ryanair. I have also flown from Glasgow to Germany and back (that whole 'Hahn/Frankfurt' thing is a joke btw). First of all, I hate the fact that no seats are assigned. I don't see how they think things ... read more
