Disadvantages: Not giving you specific seats on the plane can be very stressful!
I have been using easy jet for 5 years now. Every year as a family we go
To Mallorca, we tend to use easy jet as they are the cheapest airline for the journey. They usually work out to be at least £130 cheaper per person. Easy jet are very simple to book through as you just have to follow the online instructions. You are charged for using a card no matter if it is debit or credit which can be a nuisance, but I believe all airlines are currently the same. I will now go into more detail about the company and why I use them.
The planes are smaller than the usual I have flown on, I'm not very good with planes and there names. They are always clean though and you get enough leg room. The only problem you will encounter Is the way you are allocated seats. You can pay for speedy boarding, but if you do not you tend to be cattle herded onto the plain, there is group a and b. if you are in group B you will struggle to sit next to your family. But because you pay so Lille for the flight this shouldnt be too much of a worry to you. I have always found they have very nice staff onboard, also they have great food available on certain flights. The only thing lacking on easy jet flights is inflight entertainment! They are basic, so I would advise you take a book or iPod on the journey! On short Haul flights I find it doesn't matter so much about the entertainment :)
We tend to fly using speedy boarding. This means that you can get on the plane first and you can also get your bags onto the plane quickly with a smaller que. I believe it's best to do speedy boarding if you are going as a family and you would like to sit next to each other. As easy jet do not give you specific seat numbers I believe it's better to go speedy boarding, the times we haven't used this service we have struggled to find seats next to each other. The only issue is that speedy boarding comes at an extra price and can be quite expensive per family. I have only had trouble using speedy boarding once, the reason I had problems was because the queue for speedy boarding was larger than the queue for normal boarding! But the othe times there as been a small queue and I got through to duty free very quickly, which is better than standing around for hours in a huge trailing queue!
I have not had any problems using easy jet as of yet. I have used them five times and have enjoyed my flight evertime. They are a no thrills airline, you get what you pay for. But I believe they are very good and they do care about there customers! They are cheap and affordable. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to save some money and Anyone who is not bothered by having any inflight entertainment. They are nice and simple! I will continue to use them in the future as I have had nothing but good experiences with them. Make sure you check out how much your baggage will cost and also investigate into speedy boarding if your going as a group. Be aware that many people will fight to get seats infromt of you, it's not the most comfortable way of boarding a plane, but you tend to get what you pay for :)
Thanks for reading. I will be giving easy jet a 4 star raring as they are a good company :)
Summary: A good value flight, well worth a try :)
