Why would anybody book with these clowns ever again??


In a word - price. It's all that counts, and despite all the bad publicity, all the cancellations, all the lies and all the failures to comply with the law, Ryanair will not only survive but thrive, as it always does. Guaranteed (like its flights).

Id rather lick cats p1ss of nettles than book with ryanair

As above, everyone needs to count to four in binary, and then show the result to Ryanair.
I suppose you could count to six, but it isnt as rude, or to 132 if you have the time and really want to stick it to them.

Brrrr is it snowing outside because it's cold in here , middle finger to Ryanair

100,000 seats available, but only 63 of them are actually on an airplane!!!

As long as O'Leary gets idiots to travel on his cowboy airline he will continue to treat his employees like sh+t.

I wouldn't fly with Ryanair if it where free.

Just in case they'll cancel , not much to refund

It might just be easier to find a close drain and dump your fiver in there.

The deal is brilliant but I shall not put another single penny in O’Leary’s condescending pocked

k.czaja20021 h, 38 m ago

So must be rich or you don't fly nowhere,

I once flew to Strasbourg for £15 return with Ryanair without any probs but wouldn't do it now even for a fiver. It's the risk of them cancelling the flight and the resulting loss of deposit on accommodation, airport parking costs etc and general hassle and disappointment of a cancelled trip.
BTW I am pretty skint too, hence the reason for bargain hunting on here!

I was hoping that people wouldn't support O'Leary so a message could go out to all airlines that if they treat customers like s**t then they won't be in business much longer. Sadly, judging by the comments from some people, low prices are still king. Will some people never learn?

Had it myself a few years ago on a 9 hour flight 2 kids and my wife, wife in row 21 kids in 40 middle rows with two strangers either side. came back last month from America and BA did the same to a family behind us.


Possibly these people did not check in in advance? I’ve never had a split up family on many easyjet and flybe flights. Maybe it’s been 5 years of good luck. But this year, 1 Ryanair flight and 3 easyJet’s for our holiday and the Ryanair split us over 4 rows, all window seats. Even though when I looked at selecting seats, there were plenty available in groups. Every other flight, no problem, all together.

With Ryanair, it’s not random, it’sanother deliberate money grab. Pays yer money, takes yer choice. I know what I’m choosing next year.

Ended up going on the 1st booking and returning on the 2nd booking as the flights I didn't use were at crappy hours.

I agree with Robbo11 over the comments over hand luggage. Came back from lisbon last night and they went through most peoples bags, and some unlucky people who had no issues with their bags coming out all of a sudden were demanded to pay for their bags to be stored in the planes hold. Ryanair will head down the same route as wizzair IMHO, where anything cabin baggage you place under the seat will be free, and anything you store in the overhead lockers will be charged!!!

The cheapest prices by a long way and your moaning about paying for a seat together,go and pay an extra £100 and fly with jet 2 then!

Rest assured that you will be sitting next to strangers unless you care enough to pay for the 'privilege' of sitting with your partner. You could always try asking to swap seats with someone once on board or if it's not a full flight, find empty seats to nab but neither are definites. Since May, when Ryanair changed their free seating allocation algorithm, they now allocate free seats by letter order rather than row number starting with the middle B, then E seats first, then when those are gone, the C then D aisle seats. The window A and F seats are allocated last of all. Ryanair are also threatening to reduce the free cabin baggage allowance because (they say) customers are abusing their cabin bag size rules.

Got a flight next week. Got 3 seats allocated for free as children need to be next to an adult. So we got one row next to the window. The first seat in the middle row next to our seats is still free. Was thinking they'd give us it because we're all together. Now reading all these comments, I just booked it to be safe, £5 each way.

over the years of flying with ryanair I could not fault them. you pitch up early, print off your boarding passes, and bring the correct hand luggage.....all sorted, no hassle, quids in!

Until earlier today when I checked in for my Lisbon flights this morning.....WTF! ok I refused to pay the extra £12 for me and the misses to sit next door to each other, but she was allocated row 6, and I got row 33.. The lowest of the low for certain with this new BS seating policy. Admittedly this is my 25th wedding anniversary trip to Lisbon, yes i was feeling tight at the time of check in, but only because I felt the flights were over priced!
oh welll, hopefully O'leary will learn from this. I briefly saw him on Newsnight last week getting ripped over Brexit and their summer 2019 schedule.......

They've lowered the bar further since you've last travelled with them.

​Oh, that's disappointing, I quite like Ryanair, mainly as they always tend to be on time. Last time I flew with them was December but I'll see how I get on in September. One thing I found, I always use to check in early, but I found I'd you do the opposite and check in lastminute, you end up with seats at the front. For families I guess it can be really annoying....

If you book flights with say Thomson, TC, Monarch etc, then you'll likely pay more for that flight on it's own than a flight with Ryanair + how much it costs to sit next to eachother. I was on a Thomson flight recently and people were split up on a 767 aircraft, most scheduled airlines charge to GUARANTEE you sit next to eachother, whilst I don't agree with it, it's nothing new.

You could not have flown with Ryanair in the last couple of months then as …You could not have flown with Ryanair in the last couple of months then as their free seat allocation policy changed in mid May and the situation now is that if you don't buy seats to ensure you sit together, you will no longer be allocated a free seat next to anyone on the same booking when you check in. It's a new money generating policy that Ryanair introduced suddenly without any pre-warning or announcement. To my knowledge, when there is not a seat sale going on, the cheapest standard seat price is £3.75 for internal domestic flights and £6 for international flights.

I see, it was may 5th. I just checked in my mother and grandmother in law and they're next to each other. Tbf at some costs £15 return you can't moan how they try and make money. I think with them you know what you get and I'm happy with it 2hrs isn't going to do much for me, altho I see how it can be difficult for families especially with children.

That maybe the case. What we don't know is if those available seats were … That maybe the case. What we don't know is if those available seats were part of an empty row when the other members of the party were allocated a seat elsewhere. A row that it makes good business sense to keep available to be reserved for as long as possible.



Well lets look at an example (taking what the person says at face value, but I've heard similar complaints from others):

http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/ryanair-flights-middle-seats-assigned-passengers-pay-reserve-changed-seating-policy-a7750581.html

the allocated seats we were given were in rows 8 and 32. We couldn't … the allocated seats we were given were in rows 8 and 32. We couldn't have been further apart! I checked the seating on the flight. At the time of my check-in more than 60 per cent of the seats still available for purchase



I guess we could run the permutations to get the probability, but I'd be surprised if the seating plan ended up with the only allocatable middle seats (i,e. those not in free rows) 24 rows apart.

If you think about the methodology you believe they use:

1) 3 paying pax take up a row and have no impact, other then pushing free rows apart. (Anything above 3 and you consider them a 3 plus a separate fragment, i.e. 5 = 3 pax plus 2 pax).

2) 2 paying pax take up a row and leave either a window or aisle free (presume they would want to sit together).

3) 1 paying pax picks a window/aisle and leaves an allocatable "won't pay seat"

So if you don't pay you're first going to be allocated the seats generated by (3). The seats generated by (2) won't be allocated until all middle seats have been allocated. But that then means they risk running out of completely free rows for late bookers who are prepared to pay (do they move people retrospectively?, haven't heard anyone suggest they do).

The important factor to consider appears to be the ratio of group (3) to non paying Pax and how full the flight is. If its 50/50 and a very full flight then you're more likely to be separated. But there'd have to be many non paying single Pax having been allocated seats before a non paying couple to force people so far apart.

To me it seems like a very unique and unlikely set of circumstances which would yield the results people are complaining about. In most instances IMO with an unadulterated allocation policy they would be sitting in adjacent rows (albeit in middle seats) allowing easy seat swapping. Additionally holding back seats generated by (2) makes little sense unless you have a lot of paying single PAX, as generally a single PAX will pick an empty row where possible, so those seats only become desirable once empty rows or rows with only one other PAX are filled. Again this suggests to me the policy is deliberately set up to separate people rather then increase revenue by holding back desirable seats only.

I presume the people complaining can see the seat map (so Ryan Air can sell them a seat)? If so perhaps someone will be able to confirm if there was a nearer "won't pay seat" available.

I really don't understand why people complain about Ryanair. They are … I really don't understand why people complain about Ryanair. They are running a business, a successful one at that so they must be doing something right. They are not there to pander to your every whim just because you think the rules should not apply to you. They are offering a product for sale and everyone is free to choose to purchase it or not. None of the completely optional extras are hidden. The rules re baggage, boarding passes etc are perfectly transparent. If you fall foul of those rules, it is your fault, not the airline's. If you don't like the product, go shop elsewhere. I don't like cheese therefore i don't purchase it. I also don't feel the need to constantly complain about the shops that offer it for sale.



Why shouldn't people complain, how else would they influence a company's behaviour. And many of us disagree that their seating policy is transparent, you feel its innocent, we feel they are deliberately separating people (by several rows) unless they pay.

Moreover, i'm not sure why you feel the only choice consumers have is to take their business elsewhere. It's perfectly valid to also call out bad practice or behaviour you feel is unacceptable. Some may have limited options. I live near LHR so BA gets a lot of my business by virtue of my geographic location. If I lived near LTN the dominant operator at that airport (used to Ryan Air, but think it may be Easy Jet now?) would likely get my business. Moreover, say you need to fly to BTS for example, you're short of options.

The cheese analogy is erroneous and trivialises peoples quite fair complaints, as even if you only have one shop near you, it's very likely you will have many other options rather then cheese. If you're local shop only sold cheese and you had a two hour round trip to the next shop I think you may well be less laissez faire.

And this brings me back to my main point. People accept such behaviour in the case of Ryan Air, infact they defend it telling others to stop complaining and go elsewhere, but i'm certain they wouldn't like it if everyone followed suit. There's trying to up sell and then there's being unnecessarily punitive and quite simply insulting peoples intelligence in the process. The whole payment method surcharge was a very clear point in case. It was an unreasonable and deceitful (as they tried to claim it was due to processing charges) attempt to force an up sell. I recall people defending that by telling people to take their business elsewhere, but i'm certain those same people would be up in arms if every business they used had started doing the same. Imagine doing your cheese free shop and finding there was a £10 charge unless you used timbuktu banks debit card. And when enough people obtained that card, your local changed it to Antarctic Banks Visa.....

I believe people have complained there were free seats closer to them. … I believe people have complained there were free seats closer to them. i.e. middle row seats closer to them, which could have been allocated to other members of the party rather then sticking them on the other side of the plane.


That maybe the case. What we don't know is if those available seats were part of an empty row when the other members of the party were allocated a seat elsewhere. A row that it makes good business sense to keep available to be reserved for as long as possible.

* Your intelligence :pA little bit more planning than that goes into it. … * Your intelligence :pA little bit more planning than that goes into it. Firstly, those people/groups wanting to sit together can check in 30 days before the flight, whereas the rest of us can only do it 4 days before. Some sole travellers will have booked window/aisle seats spread around the plane. So when those people who haven't paid the optional extra start checking in, they will be allocated the middle seats next to those people. That will leave rows free as long as possible for any late comers wanting to sit together. I agree that could be classed as not completely random, but would explain why some people are sat far apart. It will not always be the case that people are sat apart, but they are the only ones who complain about the seating policy.
