Ryanair maybe known for cheat air-ticket; in reality, it is a trick. They nickel and dime you to death on everything including:
- Bag – 25 Euros
- Web Check-in 5 Euros
- SMS notfication – 1 Euros
- Process & handling Fee – 5 Fees
- Fuel Surchage
- a lot more fees to list hear
Plus, they give you really crappy service. If you don’t make to the gate 40 minutes before departure, they sell your seat to the highest bidder and leaving you without a flight. On top of the insult, they do not apologize.
Here is my story. I saw a special from Germany to France for 9.99 Euro, thinking it was a good deal. After all the fees, the ticket come out to 50 Euros. But the catch is that, the flight is not from the Frankfurt Airpot. Even though it is named Frankfurt-Hahn airport, there are 170 KMs between Flugehaufen Frankfurt and Flugehaufen Frankfurt-Hahn.
I had a flight from Dallas this past Monday. I thought that with 3 hours for the connection, that is ample time. WRONG, because Ryanair gives you, the customer, really shitty treatment. To make the flight, I took a cab, costing me 165 Euros. Even though, my flight is scheduled to depart at 9:40 A.M. and I arrived at the Frankfurt-Hahn Airport at 9:05 A.M. You see that is 35 minutes before take off. The gate agent was very rude and would not let me board. Why? Well Ryanir has already sold my ticket to the highest bidder. There is a a fine-print in the agreement, Ryanir can do it. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
And, there is not another flight until Wednesday. So, I am stranded here in a little town, without a hotel and flight for the next two days. With the new flight (103 Euro) + hotel (70 euros) + tax (165 euros) => I lost 338 Euros and 2 extra days. That is whole lot more expensive than fly directly to Paris and take the train.
What a piece of work Rynair is!!!!
So, buyers beware. You get what you pay for. And, cheap ticket may turn out to be a lot more expensive than you think.
