Seats sold and why not ?
If people don't show they don't care money is in the bank and seat sold.

Yes Ryanair reports on tickets sold.

I wonder if anyone is ready for the chaos with the luggage changes on 15 January.

I wonder how gate decking 100+ wheelies on each flight will speed things up. If anything, it will just slow everything down for those who actually pay for luggage.

Ryanair PR repeatedly blames people for abusing the generous luggage policy. The real problem (if there is actually any), it is the airline failing to get handlers to enforce the policy.

Baggage problem

If you can't beat them, join them, that is JET2, for they solved it.

Not sure what the point of reporting seats sold rather than bums on seats is particularly in Ryanair's case. Of course it makes for nice PR spin, but as Ryanair is much more dependent on ancillary revenues than others, for them bums on seats is what counts (I suppose that a lot of the no-shows, just like me, are folks who simply buy very cheap tickets without being absolutely committed to travel and thus will not be spending money on extras in advance).

If a seat is sold but the passenger does not show up, then all the airport fees and Govt taxes go straight to Ryanair. Yes, you might have a legal option to reclaim the tax but Ryanair's admin fee and general consumer apathy kill off that option in virtually all cases.
The result is that the additional revenue can quite often more than cover the average ancillary revenue

But of course if you've paid less than the tax for your ticket... ( And there's a lot of £9.99 fares around)

Never mind the cost of hanging on the telephone for hours waiting for the bar stewards to answer.

And any no-show saves circa 3% fuel of body/baggage weight per flight hour.

Didn’t Ryanair used to actively encourage passengers to only travel with hand baggage?

That was before they started being 'nice' and 'Always Getting Better'.
Still makes me laugh how they feel they're outdone by their own policy and how it's taken so long for them to implement a new one

Israel Hand Baggage Policy

I've noticed on the hand baggage section for Israel flights (to/from)

Flights to/from Israel

1 small bag on board (35cm x 20cm x 20cm) regardless of whether the user has ‘Priority & 2 Cabin Bags’ or not.

What is the reasoning to why customers who have 2 cabin bag allowance not permitted to have their larger bag on board?

Thanks

NorthEasterner - have you ever been through security at an Israeli airport when you're profile sounds a bit unusual ?

But Ryanair won't pay any "tax" on a passenger who doesn't show up. APD, for example, is only collected once an occupied seat flies. In the case of a 9.99 no-show FR gets 9.79 (lets assume that the cost of processing a ticket and payment is around 2%).

Are you for real? Answering my question with a question does not help. And what has my profile got to do with anything? 🙄

I'm not very good at hard sums, but surely this can't be right?

I think what the poster was trying to say is that security screening at TLV is unlike anything anywhere else. There is racial profiling, intensive body and baggage screening. I believe the minimum turn time at TLV is 75 minutes due to aircraft searches.

Although clumsily worded I believe that the poster was using the collective your, rather than the individual.

But without doubt, the gold standard, worldwide for Airport Security


In the meantime we have Manchester

I've received similar notices from Ryanair covering my forthcoming flights with them to Rome and Madrid whilst visiting Europe. They're not limited to Israel flights. Looks like the hand-luggage changes apply across the network.

Looks like all FR will now charge for ALL hand baggage in the cabin across the board.

That’s not what the article says at all.

Sorry my mistake but this article makes it clearer.

Ryanair cuts carry-on luggage allowance ? unless you pay £10
