Ryanair Responds! Ryanair Addresses Some of Their Most Frequently Asked Questions

What happened when Ryanair's Stephen McNamara agreed to answer my questions? Read my Questions to Ryanair or jump straight to the question that most concerns you below:

  1. Ryanair's Advertised Prices Why Does Ryanair not include taxes and other compulsory fees in the main price?
  2. Ryanair's Web Check-In Why is Ryanair's compuslory web check-in fee not included in the advertised price of one of their fairs?
  3. Contacting Ryanair Why does Ryanair make it so difficult to contact them?
  4. Ryanair's Credit Card Fees How can Ryanair justify charging multiple times for a single credit card transaction?
  5. Ryanair's flights to 'Barcelona' Why does Ryanair say it flies to Barcelona when it does not?
  6. Ryanair's Baggage Allowance Why does Ryanair have the lowest checked luggage allowance in Europe?
  7. Ryanair's Boarding Card Reprint Fee How can Ryanair justify charging 40€ to reprint your boarding card?

Unfortunately, since answering these questions for me (plus one on the flawed Ryanair Priority Boarding), Mr McNamara has thrown his toys out of his pram and decided that Ryanair can only communicate with broadcast and print journalists (despite it being he who contacted me first). Web journalists, who he quaintly refers to as 'bloggers', are not worthy of communication, even though Ryanair makes 99% of its money on the web. So, alas these are the last of my questions Ryanair will be answering for you.
