Ah now.........I know we are on the verge of the dawning of a new tiger but Ryanair is a breed apart from other airlines. Service on-board and in the airport is better for every other airline I have travelled with.

For the money spent I've found Ryan Air best value for flying. If other airlines give you some "frills" by comparison you invariably pay over the odds for them. For the cheapest A to B flights I've found it hard to beat Ryanair

Which service exactly are we talking about?

I have never been treated with anything but friendliness and efficiency by Ryanair operatives in the many times I've used them.

As regards the core service, they are second to none for getting one from A to B cheaply and on time.

The idea of the whole 'flight as an experience' thing is a creation that has marketing men and 'full service' airlines pissing themselves to this day. The best joke that marketing people ever played on modern man.
Imo.

A bit of pampering is always nice, and comfort is v important, imho, but I think some people miss the wood for the trees when it comes to the premium they pay for some of the frills.

I wouldn't fly long haul with Ryanair, but have flown them a few times this year, once with a baby, and they were grand. Staff were friendly and flights were bang on time.

Shannon is now independent, but Ryanair have them by the balls with regard to charges
If those pricks were given that terminal at Cork we would not have City jet, Aer Lingus would probably have 2 destinations out of Cork and we certainly would not now have Iberia operating flights out of there.

Ryanair are only interested in 1 thing, themselves

I know, to which I had replied to the OP who suggested Ryanair take over the old terminal at Cork airport.
What's the issue exactly?
