Another publicity stunt. Does anyone really believe that the CAA and European regulators will compromise passenger safety by allowing this? I know people like to bash Ryanair, but this is going a bit too far in the Jackanory stakes.

Well I guess we all have a choice and if we don't like it dump it. But whilst I find flying Ryanair horrible even with priority boarding last Saturday we flew from Reus to Manchester with Thomson. What a nightmare. The Thomson rep at the desk did a good impersonation of a nutcase on a power trip after being on an assertivness course, when we asked for her name she told us to be careful or we wouldn't be allowed on the flight as she should be respected,  we only asked for her name after she constantly haranged us for  overweight baggage,  it was the hand luggage that did it , only allowed 5 kilos on Thomson (10 with Ryanair) and we had 8 kilos although bag sizes were within the limits. Even after we checked one of our hand luggage in and paid 20 euros for the privilige she still went on and on,  truly amazing. In flight service didn't start until we'd been airborne an hour (on a 2 hour flight), the crew were unfriendly and miserable and the food shocking. A hot meal had to be pre-ordered so I didn't bother as 2 months before a flight I'm not sure if I am going to want to eat, but we did have a breakfast muffin which could have bounced it's own way back to Manchester. So Ryanair is the pits, but we don't have any other expectations of them and know what to expect and they always come out the cheapest fo us.

 I came back with Thomson from Alicante on Saturday. It was perfect. The plane had 41 rows of 6 seats, that would make 246 potential passengers. Actual passengers less than 80. Three seats to myself. Drinks and snacks were offered quickly and I only paid £27.50 for this flight which I booked 3 days earlier. I would certainly fly with them again. However, I think we all make too much fuss about a 2 hour flight. Train rides to London are almost as expensive and you don't always get a seat. I just shop around nowadays and go for the cheapest.

Glad Thomson worked for you Kev, it is often just luck (or bad luck in our case) on the day. As I said we know what to expect with Ryanair, which is nothing, but better the devil you kow methinks. But even a 2 hour flight for us does entail a 1.5 hour journey to the airport and the 1 to 1.5 hours waiting at the airport so the 2 hour flight does become a 4.5 to 5 hour journey altogether

The Budget Airline Charges Quiz...
How much could a £1 each way flight cost?

Budget airlines' supposed 'extra' charges are nearly obscene. This week we've a new guide (see below) to beat them, inc anonymous tips from an Easyjet air steward. To prove the point...

Quick quiz. How much could a £1 flight cost?

A family of three get Ryanair £1 each way return tickets to Europe. If they were to pay on a debit card, take a suitcase each (not pre-booked) and check-in at the airport, guesstimate the total 'additional' charges.

Take a pause and answer aloud before reading on...

The answer...

The actual total is a shocking £396, that's £6 return for flights and £390 for ‘added-extras’. This includes £10 return each for debit card payment (£30 total), £40 return (£120) per suitcase, and airport check-in’s £80 return (£240). 

The system’s a farce...

Airlines are playing fast and loose. The example above is extreme, but the injustice isn't about the cost, but that some charges that are practically compulsory are excluded from the advertised price. How can checking-in or paying by card be 'added' extras when they’re unavoidable?

It's time for legislation that the advertised price MUST include paying and online check-in; other main extras like baggage should be listed alongside in the same font. New Guide: Beat Airline Charges Discuss this: Airline Charges Rip Off
