    Ryanair - yet more awfulness

    Ryanair - yet more awfulness 8th Apr 18 at 12:01 PM
    This is already known about, I'm sure, but just for the record:

    Flight out on Wednesday 11th. Flight back on Wednesday 18th. One week apart.

    Only outward flight check in and boarding pass allowed UNLESS you pay the 5 bung.

    Is it just me or is the O'Leary grotesquerie going massively out of its way to shoo people off to Easyjet or wherever? If most Ryanair customers are only going to them on cost grounds, they are surely living dangerously with this tactic.

    As for their latest high jinks regarding cabin bags...

    According to this you can check in for both flights as they are within 15 days of each other.

    Second paragraph

    If you are flying twice with Ryanair within 15 days of each other, you can check-in for both flights at the same time. You can print your boarding pass up to 2 hours before your scheduled flight.

    What I suggest is that in many cases, the Ryanair price, even after adding seat selection, priority boarding etc etc is STILL LESS than their competitors.
    That is why they are gaining 10% extra customers per year

    Now they dont make the Boing 737. Boing make it and it really only has overhead storage for 90 trolley type cabin bags despite having seating for 189 passengers.
    Simple maths tells us that thats less than half.

    Since what you're complaining about has been in place for years I'd say for a long time. If this was something that would drive passengers away we would have seen it by now.
