Ryanair are no different from any other company.
It's all down to luck on the day with cancellations and late flights.
Had more trouble with BA and Thomas Cook than them.
Apart from the usual bumpy landing that for some reason they specialise in I have been lucky.
It was always going to happen the luggage going in hold.
The cases with wheels have got bigger every passing year.

You can hear the tuts when they announce anyone with children under the age of 5 come to the front!

Some people pay for the privilege of getting on first too.

Paying for the right to get on when you like and waltz past those in the queue is more enjoyable.

Just got back from Hamburg with Ryan Air and unless you pay for priority boarding your wheelie hand luggage will have to go in the hold.
The Ryan air Nazis go along the boarding queue and tag all wheelie luggage , when I pointed out that the bloke in front had a bigger rug sack than my wheelie suit case he got ticket too .
It looks like small handbags and small rug sacks are ok .

stunned, dazed and still can't quite believe it!!
I must be missing something, what happens if you don't book hold luggage but then rock up with a 15 or 20k case? It's inevitable if travelling with my mrs, so it would end up costing more, no?

I was wondering about that too. Are we saying that if i just book tickets then turn up with my luggage they'll just put it in the hold instead of me having to fork out £40 or whatever it is to take it?

I don't think you would get through customs with large luggage.

you 99/100 times wouldn't get through, they all have the gauges and if needed will weigh your luggage to make sure it's under the allowance. Staff are also told to look for potentially heavy or large pieces of hand luggage and make a fuss about them to try and get additional revenue through charges.

Why people still consider flying on these sh*tty airlines to shi*holes in Europe I have no idea, Ryanair have made things more competitive I guess but the quality has gone down into the pits.
You have no idea, Value for money perhaps?

I bought two return tickets to Warsaw a couple of years back for a bargain £102. I have little to moan about budget airlines, can't knock many of the offers you can get. I wish rail travel was as cheap. Cost me £116 single(peak)-Euston-Piccadilly and that was 15 years ago!.

That is true where value exists.

Thomson want £350 each just for the flight to fly me to Verona in late August, add on bags at £30 each choose a seat £30 each and you are talking £420 each to fly to somewhere that is well the same distance as Warsaw. The only saving grace is the flight times are good.

Ryanair are the only alternative and with included bags and everything they are £200 each but unfortunately they throw me off the plane at 11 at night in Milan which is 2 hours away from where I want to be..

As I said, air travel has got cheaper but it definitely hasn't if you actually want to go somewhere at a decent time, in relative comfort, sitting with the people you are going with and maybe whilst taking some stuff with you....
