http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/intro_zps3zf6wjrd.jpg

Hello A’netters, Greetings. Lake Como had been on the cards for a while, so picked a weekend in November (yes not the best time, but after being there, I don’t see why not?) and away we went. Below is a trip report on Ryanair from London Stansted to Milan Bergamo and back, along with a few snapshots of our trip. Hope you like it.

Thanks to GCMaps for the map illustrations below:

Website booking and online check in

Booking process was enough. Easy to navigate website and transparent. Online check in was possible a week before the date of departure. This was when the free online check in was available. If you wanted to check in before that date, then you had to pay for an assigned seating option. Within the 7day period, you get free automatic seat allocation. Quite similar to Aer Lingus, wherein checking in for free allocated seating is open 30 hours before departure. Checking in online simple enough though. Opted for the free seat allocation. Got a window and middle for onward journey, but an aisle and middle seat for the return.

Check in and security

As expected the drive to Stansted was stressful being a Friday evening. Nevertheless, reached an hour before departure. Check in was quick but security was a bit tedious. We were airside by 7:30 pm.
Stansted seems to have some decent duty free and its seems to be building in the right direction. Miles ahead of Luton. Didn't have enough time to have dinner, instead decided to grab something from the flight. We reached the gates at 7:45. Looked like there would be a delay. But given Ryanair reputation for a quick turnaround would they make it on time?

Busy time to get to STN, but not too busy at the airport, per se

STN air side is a fairly decent place to be. Good shope, and some good places to fill oyur stamach too

Boarding


Didn't seem so. As we only started boarding after the scheduled departure time at 8:10. The delay seemed to be due to late incoming flight.

Not strict with hand luggage and also checking in at the gate for free.

Boarding complete by 8:30. Departed gates by 8:45 and airborne by 8:50.

A looong queue at our gates - 54
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020497_zps8ix508uc.jpg

If it’s free, it fits - no longer enforced strictly; if its a good thing or bad, it depends on which side of the stick you are at. I woud prefer it be enforced a bit more strict than the way they are.

First impressions


Good amount of information from the cabin crew and from the captain. Flight time of an hour and 30 minutes announced.

First impressions of the cabin, it was the usual Ryanair affair. A sea of yellow and blue. Will make you come out of colour blindness if you had one.

That being said the cabin crew were cheerful (albeit looked a bit tired) and the cabin was spotlessly clean. Brownie points for Ryanair. Besides, so far there wasn't anything to suggest that we were not in any other full European carrier.

Up close and personal - EI-FIB (Delivered Feb 2015)

In flight

Once airborne the FNB round commenced almost immediately. Ryanair also handed us a smart looking retail magazine. Quite a classy way to promote duty free shopping. A world apart from the previous in your face marketing. So far all the signs in the right direction.

Cabin ambience and temperature was well kept during the course of the flight. Extremely satisfied with the strides in improvement made by Ryanair.

Load was full except for one seat, which was the aisle seat in our row.

Take off time...
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020509_zpsangghme4.jpg

That’s a lot of scratch cards to be sold
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020512_zpsw5mhok1n.jpg

As planned we ordered some meal deal items. A hot main, drink and a snack for EUR 10. Not too bad and the food tasted alright.

Dinner en-route

Tasted slightly better than how it looks
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020516_zpspmnqkjuh.jpg

The cabin crew on this flight were cheerful and efficient. A big thanks to them.
A bit of turbulence on the way. Apart from that it was a very good flight. A slight delay of 15 minutes in the end. Not too bad.

Bags out swiftly
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020524_zpsjhhdc24w.jpg

Immigration and bags were quick. Out of the airport and onto our rental car by 11:50 pm.


On the whole a more than acceptable flight and service to Milan. It was ideal for us since we needed to head towards Como and Bergamo is ideal for that.

Milan Bergamo airport near midnight

Had already checked in online as part of the onward journey. Reached airport with 3 hours to spare. Bags drop off had not yet started. So spent an hour walking around the Orio shopping centre across the airport. Even though it looks to be close to the airport the long winded route takes around 15 minutes to reach walking at a brisk pace. Not much to write home about the mall. Decent enough but nothing spectacular. Given that their target market is for passengers flying from Bergamo, I would've expected the journey to reach the mall much easier.

Not much plane spotting opportunities at BGY
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020641_zpslrsk8da7.jpg


A bit of a shopping spree before departures
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020642_zpscqniya29.jpg

Nevertheless, back at the bags drop two hours before departure. Bags dropped within a couple of minutes. Security took around 15 minutes and we were airside by 5:00 pm. Milan Bergamo airport has a Scandinavian feel to it thanks to the vibrant interiors and the wooden floors Decent duty free given that this is a LCC airport. A quick bite from McD and boarding began at 6:00 pm. On the aircraft by 6:20 pm. And boarding complete 5 min later. Once again the cabin was spotless and not just for a Ryanair flight. Apart from the tacky yellow and blue, I would not realise that this was one of the airlines that was in my ‘no-fly’ list just until a couple of months ago.

Flight was at 100% load today to London Stansted.

Cabin crew on this flight once again top marks. Cheerful and efficient. Great announcements from the captain en-route. Off course we did have one round of the infamous Ryanair scratch card but nothing over the top. This was followed by a round of duty free run.

A beer and few snacks later, it was time to land.

Relax!
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y437/Varun_KR/P1020669_zpsvjkkmbz3.jpg

Landed 15 minutes ahead of schedule. But busy time at Stansted as our gate was not vacant. Which meant that we lost all the advantage of an early arrival by the time we reached the gates

By the time we were at the gate, we were 5 minute behind schedule. Not Ryanair fault for this one. That being said, there seemed to be a lot of vacant gates next to ours.

Rest of the exit procedures was quick at Stansted and we were outside the airport by 20:20, some 35 minutes after reaching the gates.

Thanks Ryanair, once again for a very good flight.

Verdict

In one sentence – I would fly Ryanair again, if the price and timing were right. Prior to these two trips (this and the previous trip to Madrid) I used to proactively disregard flying Ryanair, but things have changed and I would like to give praise where it due, and Ryanair have been doing a stellar job at improving its customer service and image. No doubt, pressure from the likes of Easyjet and Norwegian have resulted in a much more acceptable and flyable Ryanair. On this occasion, the price and timing was unbeatable and most certainly a worthy 9/10 as an overall rating.

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed it. As always feedback and comments welcome. Until next time, happy and safe flying, Adios!

Lucky you didn't get matched by FR because they are quite mean when they see people taking photos aboard their flights/

Hi newbief1yer.

It's good to see the fresh approach adopted by Ryanair resulting in a better customer experience. I guess there is only so far an airline can go with competing just on price and point to point.

Some great photoshots. I particularly like the one of the ferry on the lake with the cheerful yellow flowers in the foreground.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Lesfalls. hmm, that's odd, i never felt i would be questioned about it, as i always had the camera in my hand. Perhaps i got one of the better crews of Ryanair. They knew i was coming :P

Ya i get what you are saying,. Their food area i s well served, but then once you reach the 'Ryanair' terminal, you are left for your own.

Thanks Weary.
yes indeed, i think MoL had to give in to the stigma that 'Customers don't want customer service'! I remember in 2009, at Girona, i was early, and to kill time i used to wait at the boarding gates of other Ryanair gates and watch the drama unfold with regards to hand luggage and how pedantic they used to get. I would not be laughing if i was at the other end of the stick, that's for sure. This time though, the hand luggage check was completely ignored and there was cobwebs in between the Hand luggage scale

Hey Mate,

Thank you for very nice report. This part of Italy is amazing!

By the way, when I was travelling in Italy in 2009 I got the exact same car...

Is transport out of BGY easy when arriving late if you don't rent a car?

Thx, Jonathan

Yes, its breathtakingly beautiful!
Wow! that's a coincidence! Seems like a popular choice here, saw quite a few on the roads.
Yes, there is a constant stream of coaches waiting to take you into central Milan. Very well connected.

Great TR, thanks for sharing.

I hadn't realised how beautiful Lake Como is.

Think I need to add it to my bucket list!!

RYR certainly seem to be shaking off their previous image. I'd never have considered them a year ago but now Id be willing to give it a try!

Thanks aireuropeuk733. Would surely recommend Lake Como - Great scenic views, friendly and warm people, great food, could not as for more, tbh. The only slight issue is the very narrow roads along the lakes, which means you need to drive like an Italian to be not honked at

RE: Ryanair London(STN) To Lake Como (BGY)

Great report as always. It's such a pity that FR closed BGY-TRF, because I find BGY a much more convenient airport to visit then MXP. I've also flown from BGY to CIA back in 2009 and found FR to be quite a good deal for your money. If they return to TRF from BGY I will be one of the first to book!

Looking forward to your next report

Thanks Invaders.
Hopefully FR get back to TRF. As much as I am not a big fan of MoL, i do admire his business model and now with teh new and improved FR, there is much less to not like it.
Next Trip report soon..

Nice read and pictures, Lake Como really looks somewhere worth visiting.

Looks like FR are starting to improve their customer service, though I still have no need or desire to travel with them.

Best Wishes

Thanks ba319.
I doubt if anyone travelling on Ryanair have a desire to travel with them, its more for the convenience and the price factor. until recently i used to avoid it, no matter how convenient or cheap they were, but now i put them on a level playing field and if the cirucmstances i right, i would not mind flying Ryanair.
