    I've never flown with them myself, but my step-daughter and family fly with them every year. It's my job to print out their boarding passes etc. from my PC for free, because Ryanair charge £20 extra to print them for you at the check-in desk.
    I should add that their CEO, Michael O'Leary, is known to make announcements to the press just to see if they'll take them seriously - a few years ago he was reportedly thinking of removing all the seats so that Ryanair could fit more passengers in with standing room only. Then there was the pay-per-view in-flight porn movie uproar... his view is that there's no such thing as bad publicity, which is evidently true.
    Opinions of Ryanair within the aviation industry range from being "a stepping-stone to better things" at best, to being utterly despised at worst.

    They could put a few in the cargo holds as well if nobody brought any luggage with them, but they would probably charge extra for adding pressurisation to the hold and having a 'No Smoking' sign fitted.

    I don't know why, I've flown them twice and never had problems with them, and I had a very good experience with them

    i only have heard positive things about ryanair and since its a budget airline it lacks a lot of stuff and most of them can cost more than the flight but it's really cheap so

    So it's cheap... So what?
    That is NEVER the priority for an airline.
    Even a budget one.

    Not in this life. Which is likely to be very short if you choose the wrong carrier.

    I can honestly say of the times I've used Ryanair I have had no problems at all.
    I never understand people moaning about the destinations not being near where they want to go.
    It's cleary stated what airport the flight you are booking arrives at.
    Everybody wants something but doesnt want to pay for it, then moans on the internet about it.

    As for hard landings from the flights I've taken BA probably chalked up more than Ryanair have with me.

    it's because you don't live in a country where the airlines lack a ton of stuff and still charge 8x more than ryanair

    If that was intended for me: Baloney - I live in the UK and the airlines DON'T lack for anything, it's only Ryanair that lacks the ability to speak the truth

    Ryanair do so well because they choose lower-priced airports to fly from. Nothing else except charging for things other airline users get to take for granted.

    I don't know where you got this duff info from? Best to ignore it...
