Ryanair prices!!!

is it me or has anyone else who has been checking prices noticed that Ryanair prices are extortionate this year?

By the time you add on their inflated extras, they will not be any cheaper than many mainstream airlines!!

Bears in the woods will be surprised by this...... I don't fly Ryanair because I find BA is often cheaper, but I don't think you canj call the airline extortionate.

Supply.

Demand.

Freedom to fly another airline.

The point is - do your homework! Just because an airline claims to be cheapest it pays to check 'like for like' to ensure you get the best deal.

It used to be the same in Australia when Virgin started as a LCC. Often Qantas was as cheap when you added the extras in.

In my experience, prices have been slowly increasing in years on the route I fly.

Me too. But then, they have also been increasing on the transatlantic routes I fly. Last year and particularly this have been shocking.

There seems to be a growing realisation that LCC's are no longer always cheaper than full service airlines.

Maybe this has been helped by legislation that forces full prices to be displaye dearlier int he booking process (obviously depending on the jurisdiction where you live), rather than extra being continually added on during the process.

But, at the end of the day, it is as reply #1 says, all part of supply,d emand, competition and yield managemnt.

Unfortunately, on the two routes where I use Ryanair (Stansted-Brno and Stansted-Alghero) there is no competition.
