Excellent attention to detail, not
Voted hot, I hate this post. I've booked 4 days ago flights to Biarritz for May, now £50 cheaper for a family of 4....So, yes, unlike some sellers on eBay who put prices up on a voucher comes, it seems Ryanair indeed puts its prices down when they claim a sale.

Amazing to see this going so cold, when I know for a fact they dropped prices. People's prejudice with Ryanair, probably half of the voters never used them.

I don’t fly Ryanair anymore. Parted from all my possessions & paying for the privilege?! Nah. The flight price may be cheap; but on a short break, I don’t want to waste time waiting for my bag when with other airlines I don’t have to.

Try Wizzair. Ryanair is premium compared with them

I flew Wizzair last year; not parted from my carry on. Under the new rules you have to surrender anything bigger than a tiny handbag (I take cameras aboard and I won’t throw them uninsured in the hold!) and also pay to do that. Wizzair wasn’t fancy but I got to keep my bag with me.

Yep, but maybe you did not used them like me 6 times last year. One time 1.5 hours late, another time 2 hours late, the other 4 times they moved my flight a day before or a day after, when I had no alternatives. So...I rather give my bag away and fly when I want, not when they want.

Oh no, they weren’t punctual, but I don’t find Ryanair to be either. If there was a choice I’d choose Wizzair. I just don’t usually fly from the same airports they use, so I rarely fly to/from the UK with them, just elsewhere within Europe. I found them alright, not less punctual than say Ukraine Airways! Definitely not less than!
Such a filthy airline!
Flown with Jet2 a few times recently. Still have a reasonable cabin bag allowance and good service on the planes. Best budget carrier I've used.

The flights often cost less than the tax levied on them, and you're complaining about a tiny charge for a bag.

There's a reason competitors are more expensive.
I wish this would be their final closing down sale....

I flew with Ryanair about 50 times, I only had issues with them once. I fly with wizzair quite often and half of the time I had problems. Last year was by far the worse. To us, Ryanair was the best, in fact we have chosen our next 2 holidays based on Ryanair flights.

I’m not complaining about it; I don’t fly with them. Happy to have the bag levy included in my flight price with another airline and travel with my belongings. Each to their own but many people aren’t aware of the way Ryanair operate. That’s my point. At £5 a flight, it’s probably not too shabby, but the £20+ it costs me to travel to that airport also makes them not worth my while.

6 trip in a year with wizzair. Twice 1.5 -2 hours late. 4 times they changed my dates. This was in 2019. Never had these issues with Ryanair, some problems once and used them about 50 times. Last year we were in Spain during the airlines strike, our return was bang on in the strike day. Arrived at the airport, Ryanair was the only one operating, so while others got stranded abroad, we came home in time.
Never had a big problem in hundreds of flights with Ryanair. A few delays and two cancelled flights (Volcano and Airport closed due to snow) so not Ryanair's fault. Uses them last week have 3 flights booked in the next week. Only ever take the Small bag for FREE so flights from under a fiver it is for me.

I don't like how the added extra prices are starting to creep up. You used to be able to get selected reserve seating for £3, now it's £7. Priority boarding ensuring you could take a cabin case used to be £10, now its £14 on some routes. They also let you check your 10kg cabin case in at check in for £10 if prebooked, now it's £24.

Just flown with Jet2, who for my most recent flight looked more expensive at first, but was actually worked out £20 cheaper than Ryanair in the end.

I was on a Jet2.com flight that had to make an emergency landing in Leeds (Tel Aviv to Manchester) due to not having enough fuel to hold at Manchester.
Having flown pretty much every European airline, best has to be Wizz Air imo. Bigger planes, more room, less hassle.

Afaik, you have the "right" to keep the camera gear with you, they never force me to put it in the hold, just had to remove it from the hand luggage.

I'm sure that's very rare. I'm not comparing it to wizz air. I'm comparing it to Ryanair.

Ryan air have gone crazy! To take a normal bag on board (55x40x20) is not £20 each way for almost all flights I have checked so now their prices are more than easyjet/jet2 when you add that cost on.

Why? Just don’t use them. And when you get your cheap bargain flights, with someone else, can thank Ryanair because there is no way the market would be operating so cheaply had they not so comprehensively disrupted it.

Completely agree! You have to read first about the size of the luggage they accept, how much is to book seats if you want any, how much are the penalties and that is it. I've used them so many time, they are by far my favourite airline, without them our holidays would have been in The UK only. Before I had kids I used to go to my brother in Dublin with £6 return, I visited Barcelona several times, £50 return, same price to Berlin...you just have to do your research first and to book when is cheaper. The sad part is there is not much competition flying to popular tourist destinations, so their prices are higher now. Still, our flights for 4 for May and August were £500-600, the nearest best price found was double.

50 times with Ryanair in 10 years.6 flights = 3 trips a year to Eastern Europe, each time the cost was in between £50-100, so not expensive at all, it costs me more the parking at the airport. Also, on this site are deals for £3,000 watches, £30,000 cars, this is not a site for bargains, this is a site for deals.

We've booked 4 days ago, the seats were £4. We will only have small hand luggage and we paid for a large suitcase. Was not happy to pay £60 for the suitcase, but not many other choices.
But I agree, the extra prices are creeping up. This is what is happening when there is not much competition, RIP Monarch. We checked Jet2 prices for our holiday in May, just over £1,000 for 4 with Jet2, £625 with Ryan air. It's true, Jet2 flight was relatively local, the one with Ranair is from London, so will cost us £130 more for parking and 1 night hotel, petrol, but we still save over £250. For some is worth the hassle. I guess it also depends where you go, when you go, how much stuff you carry with you, etc. And also how lucky you are or how much effort you put into finding better prices.
For me the worse airline is Wizzair but it seems you're happy with them, so obviously different experiences. Still waiting for my 2 compensation claims with Wizzair, never requested compensation before with any airline.

I've never seen a bargain with TC. Apart from when you were booking the whole package with them. I've tried to book separate flights with TC, as our accommodation was arranged already, their prices were the highest by far. I've only used them once and this was because I needed to go from my local airport and at that time the price was high with others as well. To me, for flights only TC was the most expensive of all.

Competition is good, the more airlines, the better prices. I still miss Monarch, they were flying all over, their prices were good and Ryanair or Easyjet were 'forced' to lower their prices. I see people wishing Ryanair not to exist anymore, if this happens, the other airlines will put their already high prices up even more. But they will not die unless they get rid of O'Leary. And they will never do that.

Yes, I think they are keeping seat price low to keep top of the list on price comparison sites like skyscanner. You'll get some stupid people who don't bother to do the maths and just pay the optional extras and not realising the airlines that looked more expensive on the comparison sites are infact cheaper.

Someone had to take up the business that was left behind. Let's face it Thomas Cook were never that cheap anyway. Also if Ryanair had the capacity to lap up Thomas Cook slots, they would of been 10 times the "vultures" you claim Jet2 have been.

Ryanair have had to scale down there expansion plans due to the grounding of the 737 Max.
Edited by: "stevej1982" 18th Jan
For those suggesting they prefer Jet2 instead, our August holiday from Manchester to Barcelona Jet2 £345 per person, Ryanair £160 per person. So, for us 4, Jet2 £1,380 + luggage, Ryanair £640 + £60 luggage + probably £50 if we want priority boarding and seats, total £750. I am sorry, but for 2 hours flying to pay extra £700 is crazy.

Also, for our May holiday in France, only Ryanair flies to this specific airport, £625 for 4 including seats and a big suitcase. The next best alternative is Aer Lingus (with stop in Dublin) or Air France (with stop in Paris), 10 hour trip, £2,000 for all 4 of us. The other option is to the nearest airport, which is Girona in Spain and rent a car. Again, the cheapest by far to Girona is Ryanair.
Crazy! Long live Ryanair!

Just did that. For our Aug holiday, Ryanair price for 4 including seats and luggage, £750. Next best price Jet2 £1,380 plus luggage.

For May holiday, Ryanair £625 including everything. Next best price with another airline is £2000. I've also taken in consideration renting car, flying from one airport and returning to another one, I've stopped looking to fly from my local airport and so on.

Agree sometimes you get it cheaper using a more expensive airline, but this is if Ryanair is about £25 cheaper per person may worth to go with others, otherwise, especially if it is a family of 4, not worth the extra cost, you will pay max £100 for the extras with Ryanair. If it was about safety, I will understand, but I will certainly not pay double price for 2 hours 'comfort' with others.

Best advice, do the maths.
