Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are to pay airport staff a 50p “bonus” for every bag that they identify as being too large or over weight.
This new rip-off at John Lennon Airport in Liverpool means that handlers now have a financial reward for ruining your day.
For each bag identified as being too large, the staff member employed by handling firm Servisair will be given 50p. In order to ensure that all the handlers really really try hard to catch everyone out, the payment will only come into force if an employee reaches a target of 10 bags a week.
So, Servisair workers can earn an extra fiver every day, while offending passengers are scammed with a baggage fine of £40.
One Servisair puppet, who works at the airport, said: “They brought in this new rule a few weeks ago. We’re pleased to be honest. It means we can earn a few extra quid.
“If I now see a bag that could be on the borderline I say, let’s have a look if that’s too big for the overhead lockers.
“Whereas previously we might have let borderline baggage through, now we’ll be more stringent.”
Yet another method of extracting cash from you. Steer well clear of Ryanair and their cowboy tactics. Fly with a proper airline to a destination that is actually where you were hoping to arrive at.
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have been moaning and whinging like pathetic little wimps because of “disruption” apparently caused by RAF warplanes using an Italian airport during the Libyan bombing campaign.
That’s right. Lyingair didn’t like the fact that our beloved RAF were getting in the way of their lower than budget services that share the same airport in Trapani.
Trapani? Where the fuck is Trapani?
In the middle of nowhere is where. But hey! What do you expect from the scumbags at Ryanair? “Just get the 2 hour coach ride to your destination from the airfield, what’s the problem?” said a source at Lyingair.
Ryanair’s complaint about the RAF was passed to Italy’s government in Rome, which asked the Ministry of Defence to move its aircraft to alternative Italian military bases.
The RAF were apparently just hours away from moving 100′s of personnel, equipment and aircraft that would have cost the British tax payer tens of thousands of pounds but were saved when the end of operations was announced.
What an absolute disgrace Ryanair are. O’Leary should be ashamed of himself.
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, had to abort a flight with 200 passengers onboard after tape used to patch up a pilot’s window came loose.
The 200 cattle, sorry, passengers watched in horror as ground crew stuck the tape around the edge of the windscreen of the Ryanair jet just before it departed from London Stansted on it’s way to to Riga in Latvia.
The Irish Aviation Authority have said the tape was being used as an extra precaution to secure a new window seal.
But the pilot aborted the flight after 20 minutes when the tape started to become loose and made disturbing noises.
“What’s all the fuss about a bit of loose gaffer tape? The blue-tac holding the engines on and the sellotape attaching the wings to the main fuselage all worked fine” said the inflatable co-pilot.
A spokesman for Ryanair said, “We do not comment on routine technical issues. All Ryanair flights operate in accordance with approved safety standards.”
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have been voted the WORST airline in the entire World in a poll of UK travellers by comparison site, Gocompare.com.
BA has been voted the best airline. Charter airlines Thomas Cook, Thomson Airways and Monarch also made the top ten best list and the highest ranked foreign airlines were Emirates and Singapore Airlines, with American Airlines in joint 10th place with Qantas.
British Airways topped the list of favourite airlines with 19.1% of the votes, followed by Virgin Atlantic in second place.
3,000 Brits were asked to vote for their best and worst airlines based on cost, service and overall comfort of their journey.
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, were yesterday ordered to remove adverts they had published because they were ‘misleading’.
Ryanair allegedly made false claims about cheap flights and produced false images. The advert featured a bikini-clad woman holding a cocktail in the sunshine which stated, ‘book to the sun now’, with flights from as little as £8. However the destinations included in this deal had maximum temperatures of 11 degrees Celsius.
Another Ryanair advertisement offered flights to Dublin for £27.99, although it was apparently impossible to book a flight for this price, due to an additional £6 online check-in fee.
This is not the first time that Ryanair have been caught out as lying bast*rds. And it won’t be the last.
Our tip? Stay well clear of this shambolic excuse of an airline and avoid being ripped off and flown to an airport no where near where you wanted to go in the process.
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have been made to look like the bunch of idiots that they are this week with the news that 3 passengers on the SAME FLIGHT all won the top prize in the scratchcard competition.
Ryanair blamed the incident on a printing error! Ha ha.
Each of the lucky winners look set to receive a brand new car worth over £11,000.
We don’t think that any amount of scammy, rip-off fees and hidden charges on this particular flight will have covered the cost and we have heard rumours that Ryanair are looking to introduce a per passenger, per flight charge of around £2 to cover the cost of any future scratch card payouts.
Similar to the levy recently introduced to cover the cost of any potential future delays caused by a hypothetical natural disaster, this new charge is set to be just as well received by passengers already accustomed to being ripped off by Ryanair.
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are renowned for being especially adept at ripping off their customers. This usually results in said customer boycotting the sad excuse of an airline the next time they travel.
We’ve been sent a link by a typically pissed off passenger to a review of her recent trip from Pisa to London with Ryanair. We think it sums up nicely the lengths that Ryanair will go to in order to extract as much cash from you as possible.
It’s a great read and we hope it helps demonstrate that flying with Ryanair is a false economy. What you think you are getting for £19 WILL actually cost you £100s more. Probably leaving you at an airport miles away from where you actually wanted to go to in the process.
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have launched a new website design that resembles a steaming pile of cat puke on the pavement.
In an effort to improve on their previous site which had been designed by a blind monkey on acid, Ryanair have quite clearly splashed the cash this time round.
We asked renowned web usability expert, Irene Von Stinkleman-Hurly, for her comments on the new offering: “Ryanair have set a new benchmark for crap design, crap usability, crap features and general crapness. They should be proud of this achievement“.
What do you think?
Someone claiming to be a representative of Ryanair, calling himself Stevo Whos-ya-father, commented “Here at Ryanair, we aim to provide the worst possible experience for you, our customer. If there is anything we can do to heap misery on your time with us, we’ll go the extra mile. Here’s hoping that our investment of £2.75 on this new website design gives you headaches, increases your blood pressure and perhaps fools you into booking a flight that you thought was going to cost £19.99 return but actually ends up costing £399 each way plus tax and to a destination miles from where you need to actually go.“
Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are whinging once again in the High Court over comments by the judge that Ryanair and the truth are “uncomfortable bedfellows”.
Funny how the truth hurts eh O’Leary?! You makes your bed, you lie in it!
In a motion before the judge today, Ryanair asked Mr Justice Kelly to discharge himself from determining a dispute involving the airline and a UK-based firm, Terravision London Finance Ltd, which provides bus services from airports where Ryanair operates.
Ryanair claims that the Terravision is in breach of a contract that the parties entered into. However Terravision has denied the airline’s claims and is opposing Ryanair’s motion.
