I agree with Airblue, EI has the saturday night rule, for FR you don't book a return flight but two one-way flights. And as EAL401 already mentioned, even Ryanair can't afford to sell every seat on every flight for 5€. There must be certain flights where tickets are expensive, otherwise they could not afford to sell me my tickets HHN-BOH-HHN for 0.41€ (tax not included)

I don't think that the argument is 100% valid as Ryanair admits that flights on Fridays and Sundays are more expensive as these are the most sought after by short-break travellers. Saturday fares, however, are supposed to be cheaper, as should be weekday fares according to the Ryanair propaganda. They are not always, however. Just experienced the same when I tried to book a cheap Ryanair flight from STN to Dinard. While I expected hefty prices for the Friday outbound, I was quite surprised to find out that the Mon / Tue inbounds were in the 60-70 pounds price range, excl. tax. So you cannot always blame the Sat/Sun night rule. For me it was much cheaper to take Air France, departing from LCY.....
