If you are in any way disabled, you are not welcome on Ryanair.
What have you got to say about that Mike 'I'm going to be bigger then BA/I'm for the masses' O'Leary, Ryanair CEO?
Not by treating people like that.

One way reason for Ryanair's big profits is the price of their food and drink onboard
Usually to get a really cheap fare you have to travel midweek or stay at least 2 nights. On a couple of occasions I've got IR£5 pre-tax fares. However, recently I was quoted £250 Sterling plus tax online for a return flight from Manchester to Dublin. They're very unpredictable.

Anyone who gets a high return fare, should try checking their desired flights as too completely seperate transactions, I recently saved someone £120 on a ticket to Belguim.
The return sector will be quoted in local currency (eg. London - Treviso would be GBP and Treviso - London would be ITL) so you will be charged an extra fee by your Credit Card Company depending on your particular card.
I believe they do charge a fee for wheelchair passengers.
Mind you their main trouble right now appears to be getting their planes to work!

The lowest fare I've had on them is 50p (70c US) each way from STN - PIK; and have frequently been able to get it for £4.50 (US$6.30).
If you're flexible, you'll get a great deal. If, on the other hand, you have to travel on a specific date and time you'll pay pretty close to the same fare as the big boys. And that's how they make their money.

Interestingly, another "freebie" not offered by Ryanair is technical assistance for customers booking online. When I visited their website, I noticed that calls for assistance are billed at an amount equivalent to $0.90 (U.S.) per minute. In the U.S., when one has questions or needs help with booking air travel on one of the airline's websites, the call is free as is the assistance.
Do other airlines in Europe charge for calls made to their web support help desks?
