Bright and it looks like a cheap ticket site.

Window seats may be over-rated, but I'll take a window seat on a DC9 anyday

That entire site looks lika a pop-up ad. The only thing missing is that radioactive yellow color flashing like it's purpose for existing is handing out epileptic seizures.

Well, it's bright and "busy", but certainly better organized and easier to follow than the previous version. Booking is a little pushy about the rental car and the trip insurance, but not that bad, and cost for additional services are clearly shown.

The interactive route map is crap, but I have yet to see one that uses Microsoft Silverlight that isn't. Horrible software.

I actually rather like it. Much better than the old one in my opinion. The font size just needs to be slightly smaller on most pages. But yeah, much better.

Just days after Lufthansa launched their new website. Though the new Ryanair site is an improvement, it's still a long way to go to match Lufthansa's.

Seems to have concealed the URL (or made it harder to find than right-click) of the current sale promotion.

This used to be a clever trick of getting a preview of the forthcoming sale the day before they changed... open the direct URL of the image for the current sale fare, and adjust it to include the start date of the subsequent sale and hey presto... ~ 10 hrs advance warning of whether or not to buy your fare now or wait until tomorrow.

Really not keen on that. The new destination menu list would be the only thing better about it, but as it appears behind the advertisements it's totally useless. Still, get what you pay for I expect...

I have recently booked tickets on the old and new and found the new one much easier to navigate. Now if only the quarky rules on check-in and bag size would be normalized for us Non EU people, I would like the cheap and somewhat cheerful airline even more

Two words for this: Good god!

If i did not know that it was a serious good airline, i would never give aways my personal info on a site like that.

But change is always good, and i will still continue to love and fly ryanair whenever i go abroad.

Shame that they do not fly domestic in Norway yet. The Norwegian governement should shape up and give them the feelevels that they require.

Wow, it doesn't look like it's from 1995 any more; however, it still looks gaudy.

But people still fly with them, so I guess they don't give a damn.

Ouch. Still easy enough to navigate, and I was never really a fan of the old one either...

But for some reason, on my netbook none of the formatting works in Firefox 3.6 (it looks like the CSS used isn't loading properly, everything is arranged in one column with no background, strange objects overlapping, etc.) No problems in IE on the netbook though. Does anyone else with FF 3.6 have the same issue (I'm guessing it works pretty well on a larger monitor)

Radial engines don't leak oil, they are just marking their territory!

Ryanair IS gaudy - that will never change. However, kudos to them for having a stab at improved corporate branding unity and launching a revamped website that, while a little hard on the eyes with that hazard yellow, is a vast improvement over their old one and much more up to current web standards.
