  1. Flying on a budget airline always seems to come with a compromise. I don’t understand why staff have to be rude. Perhaps these airlines aren’t putting the money into proper hiring and training. Clearly, they are not since they didn’t even help you use the infant seat belt!

      It is a shame really. They make enough money to be able to put the staff through a bit more training and on something as important as safety too!

  2. You do pay what you get for with the budget airlines. As long as I get to A to B at a low cost, I’m pretty OK, but I can see kids would be needing something to keep their attention if it’s a long flight. Haven’t encountered any subpar staff though; always have had pleasant experiences with the budget airliners I’ve flown. Maybe the crew was having a bad day.

    • Natasha says:

      Exactly, if you get where you want to safely then it doesn’t matter too much. That is what I think, it hasn’t stopped us using them anyway! So I think that says it all.

    Budget airlines has its own set of issues. The points you stated are common problems with budget airlines. However, I actually never use TV while traveling. But yes, I understand it is a good idea to keep the kids engaged.

    • Natasha says:

      Yes I think for kids it make take them from being in an unbearable tantrum to staying a little distracted for a while. We will be sure to update the iPad with a move next time

  4. RyanAir is a good choice for those heading around Europe! We are based in the UK and always use them or EasyJet!

  5. I understand the restrictions when flying via budget airlines. I do not like that they did not show you how to use the baby seat-belt. I’d be annoyed. I hope that you will encounter a better and hospitable crew next time.

    After seeing all the horror stories on United am glad you had such a great experience on Ryanair! The child seat belt is a huge cause for concern though, I’m surprised that’s not a higher priority for airline staff. That’s something you definitely should bring up to then, friendly manners or no. Airline standards have seriously slipped in the last decade even if it’s budget!

  7. I flew with Ryan Air while travelling from Barcelona to Ibiza and it was an average experience I can say. I’m actually surprised reading about the child seat belt issue, that was really ignorant and wrong of the crew. Least the airline can do if not perfect service is ensuring safety of the passengers and toddlers must be their top priority.

    • Natasha says:

      I totally agree. It is just so basic it should not have happened. We are heading to Barcelona in a month and have just returned from Ibiza!

    This is super useful! I’ve heard a ton about Ryan Air and wantt o travel Europe with them! How cramped were the seats?

    • Natasha says:

      Oh nothing too small Alice, just like a regular airline in economy. If you want to see a lot of Europe then they are a great choice

    I think wth Ryanair it really is you get what you pay for. I flew with them in 2015 and had no issues. Budget expectations for a budget airline.

    • Natasha says:

      Totally right Jean, cannot complain that I’ve seen so much if Europe on budget flights for less than the cost of a monthly phone contract!
