This is my first thread on A.net. I have just joined but have been viewing the forums for a while now. No doubt this will bug a few people but here goes.
I have flown Ryanair several times now and have never been let down by the service received. Every flight ontime(normally early), no lost bags, no rude staff. I have just booked a flight with them to Eindhoven next month for about £33.00 all in. As a person of limited income, they have opened up the sky's of Europe to my family and I to travel. When booking I always check other flights and travel options and compare the final costs(travel to and from both departure and arrival airport, food costs on board). For a similar flight to eindhoven, the cheapest I could find was £310.00 on KLM. You may get the frills with KLM but look how much it costs extra.Including travel to the airports etc I will save over £200 by going ryanair. Only 2 times I have found an option with another airline cheaper. Once was with easyjet last year, and we had an hour and a half delay and rude, lazy staff at Luton. The rudeness would normally go over my head but this is a charge often laid at Ryanair feet. The second time is a flight with Jet2 later this month so I will see if they are any better. A close friend has recently flown Jet2, she arrived home safely but her bag did not.
To sumarise my opinion I like ryanair for what they do, reliable and safe travel for people who cannot afford the high fares on the major/flag/legacy carriers.
