Ryanair introduce another charge... and it's pretty decent actually
Another week, and Ryanair have dreamt up another way to squeeze a little bit more money out of their passengers. In a trial beginning next month, Ryanairketeers will be able to fork out €10 each way in order to be able to pre-book seats in the first two rows (for a speedier exit) or over-wing rows (which have extra leg room). Priority boarding, which currently costs €4 each way, will be included in the new charge.
Which is obviously a disgrace and has got us foaming at the mouth at yet another example of Ryanair’s arrogance and disregard for their passengers. Oh, wait, hang on a minute, it’s actually a pretty good service now we come to think about it. So we don’t mind offering Ryanair a bit of praise.
The added service will be trialled on Ryanair’s Dublin - Malaga and Dublin - Gatwick routes from 16th May. Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said: “If this new service proves popular with passengers then we will role it out selectively on other Ryanair routes in the coming months.” He’s got a spelling mistake in there but as long as he can keep his planes in the air, we’re more than happy with that.
