Well, if it gets those idiots in the Commission and the Parliament to finally realise that 261 is a crock of fecal matter - more power to him.

As long as he includes it in his advertised / web prices (which another EU regulation requires him to) I don't see any difference than him increasing all of his one-way fares by EUR1 to cover his apparent increased costs. This way he's got somebody else to blame ...

The Regulation is well overdue to be rethought and rewritten. Many of the problems that it was designed to 'fix' either didn't exist, or have gone away.

If I have to pay 2 per flight and if something goes wrong, I will be put in a hotel or given refreshments etc, then it sounds like a good deal

Thumbs up Three trips in one week

I have travelled with Ryanair on the following routes in the last week, TRF-LPL/LPL-AGP/AGP-TRF, a total of 3,489 miles for the princely sum of GBP65. All three flights were early or on time and at a cost of 1.86p per mile. Keep up the good work. I am not associated with the airline or travel trade except as a passenger.

Same story here AGP, no assosciation whatsover with Ryaniar, just a frequent flyer.

I am pig sick of the seat pitches in the short-haul aircraft of the big European two, not to mention the higher prices (just did)

I genuinely believe that passengers held in such cramped conditions for 4 hrs+ must constitute a Health+Safety issue.

Aircraft evacuation in event of an emergency must be severely compromised.

I used to always order an in-flight meal, but am no longer capable of the yoga required in order to open and eat one !

Give me Ryanair and easy any day. A couple of chardonnays and a snack pack and bobs yer uncle

In a competitive environment, prices tend to reflect costs, whereas in a more monopolistic environment, not only are costs higher, but prices may represent a large markup over costs.

Moral: the consumer pays the costs of consumer protection legislation, especially in a highly competitive market. O'Leary has only made explicit what others keep somewhat hidden. For once, I'm on his side.

The real muppets are the EU Commission, desperately trying to be popular. In doing so, have they undermined the incentive to buy travel insurance? Should travellers not be encouraged to take responsibility for the risks they incur and insure themselves? M O'L is doing it for them!

Have you tried buying travel insurance recently that provides full compensation of costs incurred as a result of volcanic ash affecting airline operations ? I recently did, and although I found one insurer covering this, their cover levels on everything else required were inadequate, and excesses were very high.

Given that we no longer fly to BHD (at all) . . .
Well done that man (or woman)!

It takes guts to come on here and to admit that one works for Cryanair.

That is my point. If Ryanair will insure me for 2 per flight, it is very good value.

Even if I take 20 flights a year, it is only 40.

Some people on here ranting about Europe should reflect that the EC has served the travelling public well in this case.

And it is not often that I would say that.

Actually its Ryanair who carry the risk, and so its they who should insure.

The whole thing is another advertising campaign by Ryanair - as your rights as a traveller are enshrined in law, 'not taking the option' does not allow Ryanair to legally refuse to help in accordance with the law IMO.

Like may laws, its nothing that a commercial contract term is able to vary - like putting something in a purchase agreement which allow the seller to kill the buyer without any recompense.

He just doesn't want to take out the insurance which everyone carries to cover for such an eventuality and is just whining after years of making profits by cutting back on insurance costs, the chickens now come home to roost. Just like the man who steals from the shop on the basis he'll never get caught, he now has been.

Compensation and all that

I only had two instances of needing to claim from Ryanair and on both occasions, no problems. They are not my favourite airline, but needs must and for an hour's flight, no worries!
The only thing that annoys me is that fanfare for another on-time arrival. Since when did it take 1hr and 30mins to fly London - SNN?

Ryanair Passenger Numbers

Ryanair claim that 70+million seats are sold each year but how many different passengers actually use Ryanair.

On the assumption that each passenger has a return trip, that immediately reduces the passenger numbers to 35+million ... still an impressive number. However, many many passengers on the Ryanair website claim (or boast) of travelling Ryanair numerous times each year, some by as much as up to 100 times. So how many different passengers actually use Ryanair each year.

Just curious.

Question Ryanair hand luggage

Hi, (sorry if i posted in the wrong place!)
I am unclear with the handluggage restrictions/requirements at ryanair.
I am traveling from stanstead next week with just one piece of hand luggage, as im not taking a suitcase ect i need to carry shampoo,tooth paste, deodorant in my hand luggage. I have bought all three and they all contain less than 100ml. Is this ok? Because i dont really want to throw them away at the airport!

Thanks in advance!

I would be more worried about the size of your hand luggage, the bag I've used 20 flights a year for the last 4 years was suddenly to big last week, 35 each way for it to go in the hold. Liquids to be in 100ml max containers, in a clear bag till through security then put them in your bag.

A bit of a misleading title. The article says no such thing.

Ryanair introduces reserved seating

Ryanair is backing down on one of the key planks of budget air travel by allowing passengers to reserve seats on some routes.

From next month, customers will be able to choose where they sit on planes flying from Dublin to London Gatwick and Malaga.

The move marks a departure from the established thinking among no-frills airlines, that reserved seating hampers quick turnaround of jets and adds to admin costs.

It also indicates a change of strategy for Ryanair, after exhausting all other avenues of raising revenue through hidden charges including everything from credit card handling fees to baggage costs.

Passengers will have to pay 10 euros (8.80) each way for the privilege of selecting their seats under the policy, which comes into effect from May 16.

I do wish journos would stop this 'hidden charges' nonsense. You can see all the charges before you book. Easy.
