Ryanair

Flying with Ryanair

Ryanair is a low-cost airline with headquarters located in Swords, Dublin, Ireland. Along with easyJet, since its foundation in 1984, the company has become one of the world's busiest airlines, a far cry from the days when it operated just a single route. Now, the airline operates more than 1,800 flights every day, with its main hubs of operation situated in Dublin Airport and London Stansted Airport, plus additional bases in 80 different countries. To handle its vast operations, the airline employs over 10,000 staff. Ryanair flights use the airline's fleet of more than 300 Boeing 737 aircraft.

The company operates flights to nearly 200 different European destinations. Some of Ryanair's main destinations include Berlin, Athens and Budapest, where the airline has also established bases. Ryanair flights to Marrakech, Brussels and Hamburg are also popular. The company does not operate any codeshares and is not a member of any alliances. It is also able to boast 31-year-long unblemished safety record.

Online check-in

Passengers on a Ryanair flight are encouraged to check in online, with those that have purchased seats able do so 30 days prior to departure at the earliest and 2 hours before departure at the latest. Passengers who have not bought a seat can check in online starting from 7 days before their flight's departure up until 2 hours before departure. All passengers can also check in either on Ryanair's website or by using the company's app. Passengers who do not check in online will be charged a fee to check in at the airport. This fee is not applicable to Business Plus passengers.

Hand luggage allowance

Each passenger on a Ryanair flight is allowed 1 item of hand luggage up to 55 x 40 x 20 cm in size and 1 smaller bag up to 35 x 20 x 20 cm. The maximum weight for hand luggage is 10 kg. If there's not enough room for all of a passengers hand baggage, they may be asked to have their items carried in the hold. Those passengers who have paid for Priority Boarding will not be asked to do so. Infants travelling on an adult's lap have no cabin baggage allowance. Any hand luggage that exceeds the maximum size or wait will have to be placed in the hold, with an additional fee liable to be paid.

Checked baggage policy

If passengers want to take checked baggage on a Ryanair flight they should pay for it at the same time as they make their booking, and can purchase either a 15 kg or a 20 kg allowance. Passengers deciding later to take checked baggage on their flight can add this option online until 2 hours before take off. If checked baggage weighs more than the paid-for allowance, Ryanair will charge a fee. Passengers with a Business Plus ticket are entitled to up to 20 kg of checked luggage without charge. Multiple passengers travelling on a single booking may share their checked baggage allowance, however, no single item of checked baggage may weight more than 32 kg or be larger than 81 x 119 x 119 cm.

I was very disappointed in my boarding process with Ryanair. They told me my bag was too big, which I understand but they made me wait until everybody had boarded to pay for my bag. There were two workers and the man was trying to get the woman to fill out different forms for me and he kept grabbing it from her and was clearly frustrated with her inability to fill out the forms. It was unprofessional and he shouldn't have been trying to teach her when the plane was waiting to take off, he should have done it himself. it took over 20 minutes for me to pay for my bag and it literally could have taken 2 minutes. They were so unorganized and it was so disappointing. One of them should have let me pay for my bag while the other checked people in (that is how it is done on other airlines and it is SO much more efficient. I did not mind paying, because my bag was oversize, but how it was handled really ruined my experience flying on Ryanair.

I am very disappointed About rayan air On the way back to Belgian before to come in to the air craft I check in my ticket whit my hand bag and my cousin behind me is block about his hand bag because is to big , He only speak French so I go back to the check in to translate to help , and the employees of the company tax my bag and his bag of 50 euros ????? It is unacceptable! I fly with rayan air whit the same hand back many times without problems! And many people come on the fly whit bigger bags than my bags and my cousins bags ! It is only to make money! So I am very upset about this moment
