“90 minutes stuck on Alicante Tarmac”
Review of Ryanair


Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

Flight delayed for 90 minutes, stuck in a hot uncomfortable plane, 20 yards from a Air Conditioned Airport.... Cabin staff have offered to sell us soft drinks or water ....Maybe, this is yet another money making scam from the worse airline I've ever traveled with.....

The flight was delayed by about 45 minutes then we queued in the tunnel to get on the plane for a while. Cabin crew then seemed to rush.people to.sit down so everyone could get on and it could take off. People obviously have stuff to put in the overhead space and they can't do that if made to sit down. It was warm so people will have possibly wanted a drink ( we had bought soft drinks from the airport begore boarding) the cabin crew must have taken over an hour to serve the first 6 rows of passengers. We were in row 14 and the cabin crew from the rear reached our tow before those at the front. You can't hear the information as it's too quiet. I dudnt even realise they were doing the safety info. You do get what you.oay for. We've used them a couple of times as the flight times were better but might shop.around next time

The plane to Palma was so hot even before we set off. People were complaining about the heat and cabin crew saud it would cool down but it didn't. It was quite uncomfortable and just made us feel more tired.

Ryan requires you to check in at least 4 hours prior to flight. If you try checking in at the airport, you will be required to pat almost the full price of the ticket. I saw several passengers coughing up 68 Euros simply because they did not check in. We were a party of of 8, and 7 of us had checked in. The 8th passenger was asked to pay 68 Euro.

Other than that, the flight had no problem.

Too many "hens" who can't behave, are allowed in the flight get drunk and then allowed to buy more. Constantly going up and down the aisle asking people (who had paid to reserve their seats) if they would mind moving so they could all sit together! Time Ryanair dealt with groups love me this - it's certainly put me of flying with them again.
