Thread: Ryanair reactions

    Ryanair reactions

    We are wary of using them now and those whose flights have been cancelled for booked holidays after 14 days won't get compensation, whilst others are stranded abroad, phone lines are clogged and you have to pay premium charges to wait is leading to very bad PR.
    Is this O'Learys Ratner moment?

    We have booked to go with them to the Nuremburg Xmas markets and I stand to lose the hotel reservations which are fully booked and paid for.

    The bloke is starting to look a clown that has no consideration for his customers whatsoever.

    Yes he has always treated passengers with contempt as he knows best.
    Hopefully it will be fixed by then, but the man is getting his come uppance and his staff may rebel. He's now apparently telling pilots to change their leave. They have turned down an offer of money and want better conditions.
    Could get worse before it gets better.

    He's been running a Ratner style operation for many years now and he doesn't give a ****e. We got stuffed with them over ten years ago now and I said I'd never use them again, if the only way we could go somewhere was by Ryanair, then we'd go somewhere else.

    I don't have that much sympathy for those caught out by this farce, surely everyone knows by now that Ryanair customer service is non existent, that you just don't matter to them, and they'll dump on you without the slightest hesitation.. Knowing this, if you book with them, you ask for all you get imo.

    Problem solved. Book an Air Canada flight to Toronto, drive 100 km’s west to Kitchener and visit our Christmas market. Bring your winter woolies though, may be snowing.

    For traditional German cuisine, Concordia club is highly recommended.

    We also have an Oktoberfest, not quite Munich standards, lots of fun nonetheless.

    Lots of German heritage around these parts, Kitchener was formerly known as Berlin, until wisely changed in 1916, during WW1.

    Another complication for O'Leary
    Insurance companies won't pay out on cancelled hotels or cars as a result of cancelled flights.

    I don't see how this is a complication for O'Leary OC, it's the poor sods who have booked on his airline who'll be out of pocket, it won't affect him, and he won't give a toss.

    Enforcement action started by CAA for failing customers
    The CAA said information provided on Ryanair's website failed to make it clear that the airline was obliged to refund all expenses incurred as a result of the flight cancellation.
    Those expenses included meals, hotels, as well as transfer costs to re-route passengers on other airlines when there was no suitable alternative, the CAA said.
    The aviation authority said it had already written to Ryanair asking it to make a public statement to ensure customers were not misled after the first wave of flight cancellations.
    But it said the airline had so far not complied with its request.

    Thirty four routes suspended, though not that many in the or from the UK.
