So many people complain about Ryanair but forget just how little a basic flight costs. I you want a basic meal, buy McDonald’s but don’t expect to get caviar or even a half decent steak for that same price. It’s the same with flying. You pays your money etc. etc.
I have flown to Budapest 6 times this year. Of the 12 flights this involved only 1 was more than 30 minutes late. I have probably paid an average of £50-60 per flight. Admittedly, taking hold luggage and buying the best seats would significantly add to the cost but for me this has been short trips on a short haul flight so hand luggage only and never mind the noisiest, cheapest seats at the back.
They are certainly not the best airline, but for scuttling round Europe they provide an adequate yet cost effective service. If you want more, pay more!
