There is not always a charge for online check-in. For example, if you book now to fly Stansted to Warsaw to Oslo (Rygge) on June 12th, you only pay the base fare.

Exactly, more often than not the check-in fee can be avoided by taking up promotional fares or special offers that discount it from the final fare.

Exactly and if you have a good experience you are not likely to write about it online. And it's a minority of 80 million. Which is not a lot really

When I check in online, it says in the terms and conditions I am charged £7 for printing out boarding passes per person one way. Really?!?! Paying to use my own printer?
Scots SLF is correct - the fee for a boarding pass only applies if you have to have it reprinted at the airport by Ryanair.

But it's not £7 per person per sector but £70. Moral - buy some new printer cartridges!

Ryanair Flying Even Higher

Ryanair shares have jumped sharply in Dublin after it reported after tax profits of €569m for the year to the end of March, up 13% on the previous year.
Revenues for the year rose 13% to €4.88 billion as passenger numbers grew by 5% to 79.3 million despite the airline grounding up to 80 winter aircraft.
During the year, the airline opened seven new bases - at Chania in Greece, Eindhoven and Maastricht in the Netherlands, Fez and Marrakech in Morocco, Krakow in Poland, and Zadar in Croatia.
It also started flying on 217 new routes to give a total of over 1,600.
The airline said that fuel costs rose by over €290m during the year and now represent 45% of total costs. Its ancillary revenues outpaced its traffic growth, rising by 20% to €1.064 billion, or 22% of total revenue.

Ryanair said that forward bookings on its new routes and bases are ahead of expectations as its competitors continue to restructure and cut short-haul capacity. It said it expects growth opportunities to expand and improve for the foreseeable future.
The airline said that its new route teams ''continue to handle more growth opportunities than our current fleet expansion allows''. It said it was looking at opportunities in Germany, Scandinavia and central Europe as well as Spain.
''As ever, Ryanair remains willing to exploit growth opportunities where airports provide attractive incentives to do so,'' the airline's chief executive Michael O'Leary stated.
Michael O'Leary said the airline was ''disappointed'' that the European Commission decided to prohibit its third offer for Aer Lingus.
In its outlook, the company said it expected profit for the coming financial year to come in between €570-600m, an increase of 5%.
"We expect modest yield (revenue per passenger mile) and traffic growth for the full year to be partly offset by higher oil and Eurocontrol costs," Mr O'Leary said in a statement, referring to the pan-European air traffic control body.
"With almost zero yield visibility into the second half and the EU wide recession, we expect that there will continue to be downward pressure on yields which will dampen full-year profit growth," he added.
Mr O'Leary also said that the airline will ground fewer planes this winter compared to previous years and expects traffic in the next 12 months to grow by 3% to 81.5 million.

Looks like Ryanair may now be prepared to grown at Dublin and Stansted again from September.

Meanwhile, it appears frosty relationships with airports across Europe are also beginning to thaw. “We are in active discussions with the new owners of Stansted Airport and the new management at Dublin Airport and while no agreements have yet been reached, if a competitive cost base emerges, then we could restart growth at one or other airports as early as September 2013,” explains O’Leary.

the future growth

According to The Guardian:
The company said there were significant gains to be made in Germany, Scandinavia and central Europe in particular, where Air Berlin, SAS and LOT continue to restructure
Germany? Probably true. The country is coping with the economical downturn relatively well while some areas are still under-served there.
Central Europe? Yeah, but will FR be able to substitute the likes of LOT having practically no business-oriented offer?
Scandinavia? It's not a very vast market and partially saturated (in the LCC area by Norwegian and themselves), they possibly could grow mainly in Denmark and Finland, I guess.

Somebody is very keen to promote this - starting a new thread and nut just adding to the usual one?

Always good to know that the PR @ RYR is up to the mark.

Amusing that they released this news at the same time as the flight and cabin crew started getting their story further out.

Of course - nothing will change.

Nothing to see here, back to bed everyone.

I just see this as yet another reason not to use them until they start using some of that massive profit to offer their staff fairer working conditions and not to squeeze every last penny out of the customers.
