Ryanair site faces '24-hour shutdown' for 26 hours on Friday
It wouldn’t be like Ryanair to overly-inconvenience their customers but that might be the case this weekend, as the airline will be shutting down its website from 10pm on Friday until midnight on Saturday. They’re calling it a 24-hour shutdown even though it’ll clearly last for 26 hours. Crazy bastards.
Of course, the shutdown wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for the fact that Ryanair charge more to passengers who don’t print off their boarding passes from their website. So there could be some Saturday travellers who find themselves faced with the nasty surprise of a £60 per person charge at the weekend when the site is out of action.
Ryanair say they will be contacting passengers by email, and advised anyone due to fly on Saturday or Sunday to check in online before 4pm on Friday. If you know any Chelsea fans who are travelling by Ryanair to Munich for Saturday’s Champions League final, you might like to tell them. If you hate them, or Chelsea, maybe you won’t.
