Passengers hoping to check-in 5 hours before their flight today will now likely have now been stung for not checking in online and will have to pay when they arrive at the airport.
With regards to the booking system going down for what Ryanair call “essential system maintenance”, we have crudely calculated that this website crash will be costing the airline a size-able sum of cash.
Take August this year for example. 7.6 million passengers flown. That’s just over 250,000 passenger bookings per day, equating to around 10,500 per hour. Taking £50 as an estimate of revenue per passenger, this would mean Ryanair have lost over £500,000 in bookings since 12.30pm today.
What a joke Lyingair are. Having to shut down their booking system when they want to make a tiny edit to the website such as adding the fabricated passenger testimonials. We recommend going and having a read of those, they are incredibly funny and oh so obviously written by someone at Lyingair.
