    Ryanair

    Has anyone ever travelled on it? How was the experience?

    Yes, from Paris Beauvais (there are Greyhound stations better than that airport) to Girona Spain. Some people had flown to Paris the same morning. Perhaps that is why the flight time was rather late.

    Flight left and arrived on time. Ryan-operated connecting buses to Barcelona were waiting.

    Refreshments were offered for a price. Seats were not pre-assigned. But then again, I paid like 20€ - so no complaints.

      the good thing about ryan air (and similar services) is that its cheap..while the bad thing (if you consider it) is that it generally does not include major destinations on its route. so its always a good idea to have A P l a n when you arrive at your dest. there are some other things too (like the ones which wc mentioned) but i think they are not imp if getting a good deal is one of your main priorities.

      there are so many other such services. i am guessing you looked into all of them for the best offer.
      I don't know where I am going. I don't know what for but I am making progress.

        Loads of times. It's cheap and cheerful but thankfully the flights are generally short ones so it's bearable.

          Make sure you do not have more than 15kg of baggage to checkin - you'll get charged excess wt. Apart from that no problem,on the contrary. Read the terms and conditions before booking and be flexible in your travel dates. Sometimes just 1 day before or after your prefered date can be seriously cheaper.
          It flies to major cities, not major airports. So yes, factor in extra surface travel costs and time.

            I donīt think I could have gotten it any cheaper.

            Linz to London and back for 90 Euro cents.

              :-) and the catch is that here you will land at Stansted Airport, which is out of the Greater London, then you will get on to Stansted Express (Ticket will cost you a tenner each). You will get off at Victoria Station (Stansted Express is non Stop service) there you will buy a day travel card (Peak rate if you are arriving b4 9:30 AM) or will hire a cab. You can do the maths here
              A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?

                  Hahaha. I knew this would be coming. But for me Stansted is better than any other airport in London, because my cousin lives just 10 minutes drive from there. And of course I wonīt be travelling on Stansted Express.

                    200 €? I paid 95 € (including all taxes and charges) for both tickets together (Sanaīs and mine).

                        Yep. The only issue I'm still not sure about is, whether I will park my car at Linz airport or in the city of Linz (near the home of my fatherīs friend).

                              Would never fly with them again. Tickets were cheap but once all the taxes were added on, and the charges for checking in luggage (couldn't do carry on luggage due to the 'no liquids' rule) and checking in at the airport then it didn't work out cheaper than flights I have bought to similar destinations with British Airways.

                              Also, RA don't fly to main cities so you also have to factor in the added cost, hassle and time of forward travel.

                              On the plus side - planes seem to be quite new and well maintained and run on schedule.
