the one thing you can be thankful for MOL and Ryanair for is that fact that if they didnt come on the scene you'd probably be paying an extra 100 quid a ticket plus for a UK - Ireland trip with BA or Aer Lingus return so for that I am grateful in a way but....

all those charges are bollocks just quote a damn price be upfront and honest about it. To check in a bag at the airport its an extra 30 euros if you are going with a family for every additional case its an extra 40 so 3 cases is 110 ! Then there is an extra 10 for priority boarding, and 10.50 for insurance. They have you over the barrel as 90% of people will be going somwhere that requires a suitcase so will need airport checkin. Priority boarding, well alright you dont have to get that or insurance but they are already pre selected for you when you book so if you even notice it you need to physically deselect them which knowing their booking site if you were any way not used to booking with them you could easily overlook them as compulsory extra charge.

I need to fly with them as I work at Stansted Airport from time to time and no other airline goes there from here but given a choice I'd pick Aer Lingus every time at least you know by paying that 30 quid extra on occasion they actually do look after their customers in my experience and if it all goes tits up and you get stranded you'll at least get looked after and kept informed.

Just booked a return flight to Dublin for next month. Outward £3.99 and coming back is an unbelievable £0.00. That's only £3.99 to get to Dublin and back!!

Yeah, and the rest...

Total was £52.57 after all the tax and the disgraceful credit or debit card booking fees of £4 each way. Well, I could hardly pay by cash, could I? Checking in also costs £8 unless you opt for online check-in. Not sure how it works but it must be worth £8.

The online booking software is even set up to trick passengers into getting travel insurance for an extra £5 or so (I can't remember exactly how much) unless you spot it and change the drop-down menu.

It's like spending four quid at Tezzies and being charged £50 to use the checkout!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

I hope the Guinness is worth it.

P.S. Anyone recommend a decent hotel near St Stephen's Green/Lower Camden Street area? £75 to £100. I'm looking to book it over the next few days. PM or post. Thanks.

weird thing is, visa electron is the card you get when you're like 16, before you get a proper debit card. no raised numbers/letters, ha. yet often no charge for it, so, pretty good.

Flying with Ryanair to Limoges tomorrow and this week I have had 3 emails to remind me to check-in online but more importantly to re-iterate the baggage rules, limitations and penalties! :evil:

I guess that to boost revenue they must have the "Baggage Police" on red alert. :twisted: They will be able to say to anyone who breaches the rules "We warned you more than once - pay up!!!"
