I just found this on FR's website:

Go to the homepage (http://www.ryanair.com)

Click on the link in red writing 'New Airport Security Restrictions'.


It brings you to this page: http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/notices.php?notice=060822-ASP-EN

A rather unique way to remind passengers of the security arrangements!!  rotfl

Looks like the future of the TSA checkpoints at any given airport in the US.

Brilliant move by Ryanair . . . hilarious.

They should have put a link to the real rules under the picture which does get one's attention. No USA airline could do this, the DHS would probably put them out of business for making fun of the DHS, TSA.
I think this picture was from the set up for a photo shoot by a photo artist who is well known for his large scale pictures of showing 100's of adult people nude in public places including places like NY City's Times Square.

"PUT FUN BACK INT0 FLYING"

Thats rich coming from Ryanair, considering they are the ones that took the fun OUT of flying and turned it into a bus service!

Long Queues at the Boarding Gate and Check-In
An Airline That Does Everything Possible to Make the Passengers Life a Misery

On the positive side - You can buy a Scratchcard for 2 Euro's on the flight and possibly win a car! (NOW thats Excitement!) The proceeds goes to an disclosed charity!

MMM Sounds Delightful!  bigthumbsup 

This trip report sums it up and Im sure a lot of people who have flown them can relate to this! - http://www.airliners.net/discussions/trip_reports/read.main/84096/

BTW - If you wondering, I do still fly Ryanair!

Time for some rebuttals:

Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 10):
Miserable and Robotic Cabin Crew

Which is why in a recent large survey of 20,000 FR customers 29.22% thought the friendliness of staff at check-in was excellent; 53.53% as good; 14.74% as average; 2.15% as poor; and 1.36% as very poor. Evidently, more customers thought its friendliness was excellent than average, poor and very poor combined.

Oh, perhaps you meant in the air!

If so, then, yes... I can confirm that, again, it was considered good. Indeed, 23.22% thought FR's in-flight professionalism was excellent; 55.63% as good; 18.01% as average; 2.12% as poor; and 1.01% as very poor. Moreover, 20.74% thought they were excellently looked after; 51.10% good; 23.83% average; 3.09% poor; and 1.24% very poor.

Clearly, you are stating well-held myths.

Taking of myths:

Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 10):
Long Queues at the Boarding Gate and Check-In

Interesting.

Of that survey:

16.12% had no queue at check-in;
42.65% had 01-10 minutes;
25.47% had 11-20 minutes;
9.75% had 21-30 minutes;
4.46% had 31-60 minutes; and
1.66% had 1 hour+

Evidently, more people had no queue than 21+ minutes combined.

What's more, the introduction of online check-in will expedite the process still further.

Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 10):
An Airline That Does Everything Possible to Make the Passengers Life a Misery

It would thus be fair to say that its customers are unhappy with their FR experience? That they don't return?

Well, let's see:  Wink

How would you rate your overall Ryanair experience?

25.95% = excellent
55.3% = good
14.95% = average
2.13% = poor
1.62% = very poor

The average, poor and very poor total 18.7% combined - compared to 25.95% rated excellent.

These very promising and telling figures can be explained because FR knows its customers and gives them what they want: the lowest fares and the best punctuality.

FR clearly gives its customers want they want because as a huge 83.17% had flown it before.

Perhaps stick to the figures rather than spouting nonsense.

Ohh Be Quiet Pearson and stop being boring!!!

Are we not allowed to have fun on here and voice our opinions on here? Im sure last time I read a.net was a free open forum where people could place their views without the need for people to insulted or criticised.

You have obviously taken an MOL pill and had lessons from the Ryanair Spin Doctors department!

The Points of Views I have given are FACTUAL (in my opinion) and in about the last 16 flights I have flown on with Ryanair, I have NEVER encountered a warm or friendly welcome aboard any of their flights.

I would have thought I am very much like all people on A.net and look forward to flying and the whole experience. But in recent times, I don't enjoy flying when it comes to going with FR, I actually find the whole experience quite stressful. From the hassle of check-in, scrumming to get on the flight, the attitude of the cabin crew and whole experience! (Us A-netters are a more demanding clientel!)

The experience I have with other carriers including U2, WW, W6 and other LCC is always a joy to what FR offer!

Not if they're made up and based on thin air.

I can't believe your willingness to disregard the truth, the facts, in favour of, as you said, "opinions."

That's nice. But in my 80+ FR flights over the past few years all my flights were either early or ontime but for 1 30-minute delay, 1 15-minute delay and 1 cancellation (due to very bad snow). Clearly, very good. And I expect my two flights in Sept to be exactly the same: ontime or early. And, yes, they were very cheap.

Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 17):

That's nice. It's something I always hear. Yet they're nowhere near as successful. I wonder why.

Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 17):

When opinions contradict the truth, then everyone has a duty, regardless of how boring it might be, to step in.

I do not see a real difference in succesfulness between easyJet and Ryanair. Both companies are expanding quickly and are making profits. Do you have any information about the ROI for both companies? Do you get a higher return on Ryanair shares than easyJet shares?

Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 18):

helloo, everything is grand if your flight runs on time, your baggage gets there and you're not cancelled.The problem therein lies with the fact that FR does not do plan b's. Full stop. Yes, they're great in what they do WHEN THEY DO IT WELL, but, by god, will one rue the day if something goes wrong, and human nature dictates that FR only has to get it wrong once, to MAJORILY annoy those pax, as oppossed to having to get it right EVERY TIME, so that peeps will walk away with the 'yup, not as bad as I thought' idea. Speak to anyone who has ANY customer service issues with FR? Even when the case is resolved (a la through the Small CLaims Court) it's not as if FR can lob 5,000 miles into your FF account and send over flowers/wine or UG you to make up for their boob. They have cut themselves off from a future revenue stream, Full Service carriers can put the legwork in and tempt the disgruntled pax back.

FR is more profitable.

FR is Europe's largest LCC - it carries more customers and will continue to do so (target is 100m by 2012, although it will probably be higher)

FR is on course to become Europe's largest consumer growth company.

FR is Europe's number-one pan-European LCC.

FR is expected to have at least 413 738s by 2014 - if all options are excerised and if all firm orders are delivered. (It is expected that FR will order even more, thereby meaning it'll continue to grow by about 20% until the end of the decade. Moreover, some of its 738s from an earlier order haven't yet been delivered.)

FR is on its way to becoming Europe's largest e-tailer.

And on.

Quoting MRURUN (Reply 20):

Yes. But you have forgot that FR is very well-known for its punctuality and the fact that it loses very few bags (0.5 per 1,000). Thus, the good overwelmingly overshadows the bad - as the figures on on-time performance prove.

Quoting MRURUN (Reply 20):
disgruntled pax back.

You ignore the fact that nearly 84% of its customers have flown with them before - testament to their happiness and also the fact that it retains them.

As I pointed out they do get you there MOST of the time, but, to reiterate, it is the times when the flight is cancelled and you have NOWHERE to turn to, they dont give themselves a chance. Which is fine by the rest of the industry. LOL.
