Memoirs: 10 Things You Will Almost *Always* Experience When Flying Ryanair 

  1. Delays

You’ll often be waiting for your plan to arrive, flight attendants to clean the plane and of course the somewhat frantic boarding process. Things have smoothed out a little with the priority and non-priority but you’ll still have passengers around you running to their allocated seat. 

  1. Confusion Around Luggage

Check your boarding pass before your flight. If you’re not sure then check again. OR you can face the embarrassment at the gate. 

Hack: Your duty free purchase bag is permitted, so you can stock up on extra bits before your flight if you need to. 

  1. That F*cking Fanfare 

You’ll recognise it when you hear it. 

  1. Scratchcards Anyone? 

Does anyone actually win anything? I guess you gotta be in it to win it.

  1. Seat Swappers

Without a doubt, there is always going to be someone asking you to trade seats so they can sit with their partner, friends or family. It depends on your mood I guess but if you have a window seat on a Ryanair flight, its prime real estate. I wouldn’t trade this seat but you may be feeling generous. If you really want to sit together, pay for it. 

  1. Obscure Flight Times

6am anyone? This means you’ll have to be up at 2am to travel and get to the airport for the very latest 4.30am. *voms*

  1. Insanely Cheap Flights

These are a few bargains I’ve booked:

Eindhoven – £15 Return

  1. People Moaning

Listen, Ryanair is the Megabus of airlines. You get what you pay for – no frills. If you want “quality”, fly another airline, or refer to point 10.

  1. Being Charged For Oxygen

Only joking but some charges are so ridiculous its probably cheaper to book a whole new seat.
