A reminder to anyone thinking of traveling with RyanAir Robbers...

My gf Just booked us flights to Malaga, Spain from Liverpool, UK. Flights were only £70 but one sports bag up to £20Kg is an extra £100.

That's the most expensive cost for a sports bag I've paid on any flight anywhere in the world.

How can it cost more to put 20Kg in the hold than it costs to put 75Kg on a seat???

that makes you mad? then you are probably furious about the prices on kites and boards too?
i'm sure ryanair has perfectly good explanation. planes cost millions of £ and they are not made of plastic soda bottles, fuel is getting more expensive every day, and so on...
really, how can a bar, a stick with the four strings on it cost 500$? robbery everywhere...

Ryanair is the worst airline for sports bags ever! On their German Website they even advise you not to fly with sports equipment. :angryfire: How dare they to advise me on what to do while on vacation! Thats why I stopped using them for all my business flights as well.

I read the title and thought "Oh what a surprise."

I do not fly Ryanair because they treat their customers with utter contempt.

skyte...like everybody else, Ryanair is always my last choice. I only fly them when they're the cheapest. Nobody offered BA at the same price chooses them.

But....the fact that it costs £100 for a sports bag is the reason why you're only paying £70 for the flight compared with a good airline...no, it doesn't cost more to the airline than flying a 75 kg passenger, but if everybody takes on 20 kg, then they can't afford to charge you £70 for the flight. Charging egregious fees for everything is HOW they can offer cheap flights.

Think you're looking at it the wrong way round. But to be clear, I hate them too.

Why would you expect first class service from a discount airline

I think they are pretty clear on their charges. I mean I flew Oslo - London - Rome and back for a $1 per leg...I knew to not pack heavy.

The stuff that gets me is when it is random, or when we have to pay, but other random sports packs does not...
I would obviously not use them with a golfbag. :-)

skyte...
I am afraid it might happen :-? that you got furious even more....
did you have a chance to weigh your wheeled quiver with e.g. 2 kites , bars, pump, harness , board, wetsuit whatever else ?
imho despite the fact price is quite high , the limit ( up to 20 kg) is ridiculous , I was not able to fit anyhow :x
so even if fully paid, you actually never know what will be the interpretation of '20 kg rule' behind the counter :evil:
that's what irritates me most while rare crusing with RA.....
