Default Ryanair

Practically giving away their tickets now.

I was planning on going out to see my Dad in January.
When i first checked the prices, they were 12.99 each way (East Mids to Limoges).
Then went down to 9.99
They're now at 5.00 each way.
Dunno whether to buy now or hold out til they get to 2.50 or lower.

Well worth it - even if they go bust & I don't get my money back, I've only lost a tenner.

Not listened to it, but few in work were talking about the interview some former Ryanair pilot gave.
Said their practises were insane, the hours and expectations were legally dodgy.
Particularly when the majority of their pilots are new and inexperienced, as they use Ryanair to build up the required flight hours that proper airlines expect?

Meant to have a proper listen to the interview, forgot all about it.
Wouldn't encourage me to book one of their flights regardless of price.

So? What's Fat Al got to lose? Tenner or his life? Worth the risk I reckon

Flown Ryanair from either Liverpool or East Mids to Limoges (& back again) 12 times in the past 4 years.
Never had a delayed flight. Never seen any aggro on the plane. Never had a scary moment. The worst experience were a couple of hard landings (but one of those was in rain).
You get what you pay for - it's a bus with wings. They try & flog you over-priced shite & there's no legroom.
The flight takes about 75 mins. So soon as we're airborne, headphones in & a short nap & we're there.
Works for me.

Flew with Ryanair in September to Dublin who were excellent as usual, only took 35 minutes to fly back. Flying to Malaga with them tomorrow not having paid a lot for the flights again, it's staggering how cheap they are.
