Can't see them making any money doing that... Why would passengers get a free flight then spend money at the airport.. I certainly wouldn't...
If I was another airline flyinf to the same airport I wouldn't want my passenegrs giving money to another airline.
Ryanair might as well just buy the airport and be done with it.
Just more free publicity for Ryanair

That does exist. BRU-Berlin and Hamburg 4.99 or 9.98 return.

It's a publicity stunt.
And we fall for it every. single. time.

But "plus taxes" is no longer allowed in Europe, so if a flight is advertised for one euro you really only pay one euro. There have been times when additional taxes were common, but those are gone.

Every thinking person knows that there is nothing for free, someone has to pay for the party...

Back in 2004 - 2006 I flew 28 one way flights with Ryanair for £0.01 (under UK regulations you couldn't offer them for free so they had to charge you £0.01). I still have my credit card statements to prove it since most people on here keep thinking that one of the most profitable airlines in the world (FR) will go bankrupt if they offer flights for free...
FR has done it before and can do it again without having a huge impact to its profits... free flights generare a lot of free marketing (word of mouth)

I guess that's just one another of O'Leary's insane ideas, like once as he wanted his passengers to pay for using the lavatory. As I read, they want to negotiate an agreement with their main hubs, which sets that Ryanair earns half of the turnover achieved by the airport. But I actually don't know how that should work out.
