    Ryan Air: 2 x 12.99 = 25.99?? 6th Apr 18 at 10:58 AM
    Is anyone else getting the same problem?
    I recently booked two tickets with Ryan Air at 12.99 each and they charged me 25.99, not 25.98.
    Now I know it's only a penny but I have still been overcharged, what's more I've been overcharged by Ryan Air.
    At approximately 100m passengers a year this is a very lucrative steal.

    I cant imagine any market traders being taken to court by trading standards for occasionally short changing anyone by a penny.
    Reason being, most normal people wouldn't care.

    OP, ignore the carping.

    I think your posting can be taken more generally as a pointer to Ryanair morals or lack thereof. On experience of Ryanair to date, I personally would not at all put it past O'Leary and Co. to have thought this one up as a quick way of making another million out of their clientele.

    Presumably the thought is: who's going to complain about a penny? We're safe.

    Once again, multi-nationals get away with what your friendly neighbourhood market stall holder would be taken to court for.

What I'm saying is that the matter raised by the OP is just another illustration, if any were needed, of Ryanair pursuing every half-legal method it can dream up to screw money out of people.

    Whether this particular thing is 'systematic' is open to debate for the moment... but if the great travelling public were to be asked 'which airline do you think might be the first to go for a ploy like this?', I can sort of guess which one they'd plump for, can't you..?

    In principal I'm with the OP on this one.

    Back in the day I worked p/t for a big supermarket chain and noticed that my monthly wage was down 25p or so. Which I did complain about, but the majority of people probably wouldn't have noticed . . .it did get me wondering how much the company would be 'saving' if they did this to everyone.

    Furthermore - you rich folks on here have probably never used the bus, but I can tell you that the drivers don't just wave you on if you're even just 1p short of your fare.

    However, it has been explained to the OP, umpteen times, that Ryan Air is based in Ireland, uses the Euro, so the price via currency exchange has been rounded up.

    If three or four Ryanair flyers had come forward and posted a similar experience while this thread had been live I'd agree.

    As it stands, it's an isolated case which suggests nothing deliberate is in place to harm passengers financially in this way.
