Ryanair Charging $64 To Check In One-way!

I usually defend ancillary charges, since they are optional charges that one can choose to avoid. However, the newest charge, of $64 each way, is beyond ridiculous.

Yes, in theory, this is only to encourage people to check in online. Two problems with that

1) Sometimes, online check-in tells me to "see an airport agent to check in" for unknown reasons...

2) Not even online check in is free! It'll be $8 each way to check in online

Since there is no way to avoid getting charged a minimum of $8 extra, I think that this is pure deception..

Thoughts?

I never pay online check-in as I get their special deals that don't have it. So I get:

1 Adult @ 10.00 GBP 10.00 GBP
Taxes/Fees details 0.00 GBP
1 x (Free Web Check in) 0.00 GBP
Total Cost of Flight 10.00 GBP

Hold on, let me get this straight, you pay 10GBP for your flight and don't have to pay for the web check-in. I pay one of the higher fares but i have to pay 5GBP for what you get for free

Yup, me too. Every week almost day there is a 24 hour sale for certain routes/dates. makes weekends or days away from home more exciting, not knowing before you book where you will end up.

You get free check in with any of the promotional fares, which the £10GBP that Pears@n mentioned was part of. The sale fares change constantly, a couple of times a week, at the moment I believe it's £6, therefore to get free online check in, you have to search for the £6 fares rather than the £0.00 ones, which although seem cheaper from the outset, don't include free online check in, or tax.....

Yep! As odd as that might seem...

I got another of their 1p-no-taxes-per-one-way deals the other day. Due to being promotional, I didn't pay their online check-in fee. Hence, the total was 1p.

Very well said. FR is a useless airline for anyone who wants to travel on specific dates to specific destinations. People not travelling that way are almost only funtravellers, a market which will collapse today or tomorrow as the oilprices will rise, and are keeping up a very unhealthy system, both from economical and environmental point of view.

I was under the impression that EU law was clear in that the quoted fare had to be acheivable.

This now appears to breach this, as clearly there is an additional charge for either check in option.

To myself its a good reason to avoid FR, as there may be some occasions when on line check in might not be possible. If you are staying in accomodation with no internet access, how without inconvenience can you check in ?

Yes - this can happen, if for example you do not hold a European passport, but FR will not charge you the airport check in fee for doing so in that case.

This is an outlandish statement. Even with all of the ancilliary fees, Ryanair usually works out either cheaper or the same price for similar flights, and that is before you start to get thankful for the additional frequency... how else can I get from AGP to MRS for example...

This one is the really cheeky one. The reality is that this is not an optional charge, therefor it should be in the price of the ticket.

- Not great for travellers on vacation, internet access is not always readily avaliable in every city.

- It's only a matter of time MOL & FR find a way to charge you for looking at their website, perhaps an access fee?

Nobody has done more than MOL to destroy what was (and still can be) a glamerous way of travel, such a shame.

I'm sure they will find more ways to charge travellers soon.

In september I took three return ryanair flights - and didnt have to pay for online checkin. Cheapest fare, including credit card charges was €12 return. Most expensive €28 return (for 2hr 40min sectors). The €28 return fare included priority boarding, so was in effect, €18. The quoted fare is achieveable

Stupid statement

Two of the three flights above were to travel to specific dates to specific destinations - the third was because the fare was so cheap.

Dont forget that Ryanair are the worlds largest international airline - so most probably they carry more people to specific destinations on specific dates than anyone else.

As usual - people believe that they are



But in reality they arent

- Seems the bases for complaint are covered then.

Still don't see why you should pay a fee for OLCI thoiugh, after all, by doing so you are saving the airline money, imagine if BA started to charge for this, we would never hear the end of it, rightly so!

Its all optics - trying to get the headline fare as low as possible. Ryanair, are an efficiently run airline, and are very cheap (indeed excellent value) if you travel the way Ryanair want you to fly, even if you have to pay OLCI

If you insist on frills, such as checking in a bag, a panini, or the use of a check-in desk, or shock horror - an extra 5kgs - it will cost a fortune...

But even still, on average - Ryanair is the cheapest airline in the world

Even more amazing - it remains highly profitable.

I still think it's a cheek charging people for OLCI, but then FR & MOL have no consideration for what is fair or reasonable, they see things their way and no other way is reasonable.

I do expect the use of toilets to be charged for by FR in due couse, what else can we expect?, paying to climb the boarding stairs?  Smile

89 Bt001 : on local 'cheap flights board' info regarding this was out at around 00:00 GMT this morning. at 07:00 GMT these fares were gone - either 'sold' out o
90 Plainplane : I usually do not like to get involved in arguments like this, however I have to say that the online check-in fee is highly immoral. Why charge people
91 TravelExec : ...although there is the argument that systems cost money. The online check-in fee is a bit of a try on. If you really want "highly immoral" then go
92 Plainplane : Agreed. That is definitely wrong. A transaction fee is only supposed to cover the cost that the airline pays the credit card company to process the c
93 Pe@rson : Interesting that other LCCs, primarily UK-based, charge a card fee on a per-passenger, one-way basis - yet they're never mentioned. Their operation an

96 Darr34 : EZY also have an annoying credit card fee charge, although it's not so step, at £6.95 per booking per person, so is cheaper than the Ryanair £10rtn

99 Pe@rson : Was looking at Jet2. You can select either online or airport check-in. I noticed: 1) If you select online check-in, they charge £3 per passenger per
100 SurfandSnow : If you don't like Ryanair's policies, then don't fly them. No need to complain about an airline that has revolutionized the low-fare concept, bringing
101 Pe@rson : " target=_blank>http://www.ryanair.com/site/LV/news....91009 I read all 25 pages of emails last night. I was chuckling at quite a lot of it. My wife

107 RussianJet : I disagree, but then you're entitled to your opinion too. Making silly comments about carrying chairs just detracts from your position. By overall se
