This year I have decided to go one step further and do three price comparisons - one for a last-minute, midweek business trip, another for a reasonably short-notice long weekend as well as one for a summer vacation (booked months in advance). With the recent shake-ups in the aviation industry (many airlines have gone under, leaving Ryanair and easyJet with less competition but with more need to compete for passengers in the current economic climate), who will win this time?
- Ryanair v easyJet Price Comparison 1: The Business Trip
- Ryanair v easyJet Price Comparison 2: The Long Weekend
- Ryanair v easyJet Price Comparison 3: The Summer Vacation
Update: Following this post, Ryanair's Head of Communications, Stephen McNamara, was kind enough to get in touch and respond to this Ryanair v easyJet Price comparison. You can read his comment below (comment #23) and my responses (#24). He also answered some other questions I put to him. You can see these responses here:
