Reply To: First time with Ryanair – Will be the lastBack to Forum
Ryanair appeals to the ‘budget sensitive’ traveller and as such I think it’s wonderful, as it keeps 100 million people a year off the airlines I choose to fly on, whilst keeping those carriers’ fares competitive.
It also happens to be a very successful and profitable airline, and MoL, one of the smartest and most astute businessmen of our time, talks a lot of sense. As he says, if you choose to ignore the terms and conditions when you purchase, and if you don’t stick to the rules, you only have yourself to blame.
Would I fly on FR again? No.
Do I wish them every success? With some hesitation, yes, but sadly they attract too many people to places that really can’t support so much ‘bottom of the market’ tourism.
I bet they have better contingency arrangements and disaster recovery procedures in place than BA!
