Did we really just get asked to make change for a ten over the intercom?
As of February 1st 2014 all passengers have assigned seating.
Things to be aware of when flying the Irish Skies:
- Check-in and printing boarding passes 15 days to 4 hours ahead could present issues depending on your access to printers, internet etc while traveling.
- Ryanair doesn’t do connections, so you have to book two separate flights… which means you have to check-in, fly, get your baggage, and then check in again for your connection. If you miss your connection, you’re out of luck – pad your connection time!
- In some cases Ryanair uses airports that are outside of town (Paris, Rome, etc). Make a note of this so you can arrange transportation.
In the end, the flight was what we expected, low-fare no frills transport. Sending a letter within the US costs 50 cents these days and my wife and I flew round-trip from Rabat to Madrid for $100 each with a piece of luggage.
Let’s put that another way: We had couscous for lunch and paella with sangria for dinner. I think Ryanair gets a bad rap; it’s a great option to explore some great areas if you’re flexible.
