We’re all subsidising Ryanair: The O’Leary & BONDERMAN Myth....Time for all to BOYCOTT RYANAIR...

 RYANAIR PASSENGER TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT RYANAIR..

I’ve finally realised what it is about Ryanair and Michael O’Leary personally – they have no moral framework to rein in their greed. At Ryanair’s General Meeting last week O’Leary pledged to transform the airline’s “abrupt culture” which he admitted could be aping his own personal character flaws. The airline unsurprisingly came bottom in the Which? Brand popularity survey. The bottom line is that, if this is the only way to run a profitable airline, Ryanair should get out of the airline business. When people praise Michael O’Leary for the way he runs his airline they are missing the point. He is no genius. He isn’t reducing costs he is passing them on to us, his customers, travel insurance policies (which ultimately cost us all) and his long-suffering staff. The profitability at Ryanair is no different than an elaborate tax scam – it reduces the bill for Ryanair but we all end up paying. His success is in selling snake oil not driving efficiency.
The final straw came for us in France. We had booked a return flight to Perpignan from Birmingham. I understand, but don’t like, the non-booking of individual seats and the charges for those that do want to have more leg-room. I don’t like and don’t accept the deliberate deceit on the website to get people to take unnecessary insurance, phone coverage, luggage, seat reservations etc through changing the wording and opting out of choices. Even worse are the outrageous cancellation and change fees, premium rate telephone lines for “service” boosted by superfluous messages and queue times.
However, the policies when things go wrong are blatantly opportunistic.
The airline has no employees in Perpignan and so the poor ground staff have to do what they can to execute the dreadful practises of Michael O’Leary. On the evening of 7th September we were herded into the tiny departure lounge and expected to somehow form queues against the Priority and non-priority gates. The doors opened so that we could watch the Aer Lingus flight, due to depart after us, board and leave and only then did the doors close and the announcement came. Due to the bad weather the incoming flight has had to divert to Montpellier and we needed to go back into the airport and await instructions. Unless Ryanair communicate by semaphore they must have known there was no plane at least half an hour previously and just for comfort they should have let us go into the terminal. With so few chairs people were sitting on the floor or standing for around an hour.
There was a brief thunder storm (ten minutes maximum) during which the Aer Lingus flight landed and departed, Air France had no problems and the Ryanair flight to Charleroi also arrived so we knew we something odd was happening. We were advised by local staff that there were buses being organised to take us to Montpellier to catch the plane. Actually, as soon as we vacated the departure lounge the Ryanair customers were loaded onto the Charleroi flight.
We were then advised that the pilot was bringing the plane from Montpellier and would be arriving in half an hour so could we all go through security again. We had a seat in the main terminal and so we waited until we thought there would be the minimum time to stand around air side. Two hours later than we were due to takeoff came the announcement. “Ryanair are sorry to inform you that the flight is cancelled. Use the Internet to make alternative arrangements.” She then came back on the tannoy to advise the next flight was on Tuesday! Bearing in mind this was the poor lady who had to sit behind the Ryanair desk afterwards to defend the indefensible she was very brave and the passengers did not take it out on her. There were people in tears and fuming with rage however. The staff in the airport were clearly shocked by what had happened and were apologetic. There was no explanation of compensation and we understood only through the conversations in the queues that there were approximately 30 seats available on Tuesday’s flight.
I received an email in the evening advising that I could rebook on another Ryanair flight free of charge and that the tickets could be refunded in full as an alternative. There was a link to a refund page and a link to the legislation covering cancellations – the bit that spells out we are entitled to 250 euros compensation.
To leave women and children with no support in a foreign country at 6pm on a Saturday night is utterly irresponsible and Michael O’Leary should be ashamed of himself – as a man if not as a Chief Executive. The only time this happened in the past was when a package holiday firm went bust but at least it was covered by a proper compensation package. There are very few flights from Perpignan anyway and to avoid any charges you would either fly possible a week or so later to your original destination (where your car is) or incur the huge extra costs to get home. I estimate the cost of getting my family home was around £1500. I can afford it and I have the knowledge to get myself out of the situation but what about the elderly and the large families? The attitude of the company afterwards has been appalling – just being able to get in touch with them is either a premium rate phone call or a real challenge to find out an email address from the website. They have refused to answer a question about exactly why the flight was cancelled and have refused to pay the EU261 compensation saying the flight was cancelled due to “adverse weather conditions” and they offered an alternative which we declined – until I received the email later that night I was offered nothing by Ryanair – I had been told by their own staff to make arrangements “on the internet”.
So Michael O’Leary, you can sit behind your terms and conditions and well-versed defences about bringing low-cost flying to the masses. You quote laughable statistics about on-time flights which only work if you count the ones which actually land and the ridiculously long flight time assumptions. The truth is that you don’t run a low cost airline…it’s just low. You are running a business like an old-style get-rich-quick bank. You haven’t got a viable business if travel insurers refuse to insure Ryanair flights, your employees refuse to justify your exploitative practises, and your prospective passengers realise that your flights actually cost more. You must be proud of your personal wealth and watertight terms and conditions and how they affect the 200 people in Perpignan left stranded.
I have nothing but contempt for you...

Ryanair post-train crash price hike''you bet''... 

Irish airline Ryanair and Spanish travel company Rumbo are locked in a bitter dispute over an alleged increase in flight prices to Santiago de Compostela after July's fatal train crash near the city.  

The son of one of the victims — the paper gave his only name as Ángel — had tried to book Ryanair flights from Madrid to the northern city of Santiago de Compostela using the flight search engine Rumbo on the morning after the June 24th train accident.  

At 6am he booked two flights for a total of €471 ($627). He was then told to wait for an email confirming for the reservation.

Two hours then passed without the email arriving.
El Mundo then reported that when Ángel's partner Elisa called Rumbo, the company said they had been unable to confirm the booking because Ryanair had bumped prices up to a total of €800 for the two passengers.
The couple then decided to drive 600km (373 miles) to Santiago de Compostela because they didn't "want don't anyone to make money" out of their "misfortune".
But now Ryanair and Rumbo are engaged in a public relations battle with both sides asserting they didn't raise the prices of the tickets.
On August 8th, lawyers acting for Ryanair contacted Rumbo asking for the matter to be cleared up.
In a fax sent to the Madrid-based company, lawyers for the Irish airline said internal investigations had revealed no record of  bookings for two customers called Ángel and Elisa.
Ryanair also said it could demonstrate that none of the three Madrid—Santiago flights on July 25th had individual seat prices of €400.
In their fax, the carrier asked Rumbo to confirm that they had never made bookings for Ángel and Elisa.
They also asked the Spanish firm to state that the couple's flight reservation had not been cancelled because Ryanair had increased prices.
The airline asked for this confirmation to be provided by August 12th or legal action would be taken. That date has now passed.
Travel search engine Rumbo, meanwhile, issued a statement in which they said they have no influence over airline prices.
"Rumbo, as a travel agency, acts as an intermediary between airline companies and the client , providing comparison and booking services," said the company.
"Availability and flight prices are published by the airline carriers," Rumbo added in its statement.
On Monday, Spain's Confederation of Housewives' Organizations, Consumers and Users (CEACCU) entered the fray, but going after both parties rather than taking sides.
Acting on behalf of families of victims of the train crash, the CEACCU has taken the issue to authorities in Galicia, where the accident happened.
They are claiming the sudden increase in ticket prices forced some families to take alternative transport in the wake of the crash.
The rise in prices was "unfair and liable to administrative sanctions", the association said.
The CEACCU wants believes Rumbo and Ryanair could be liable for fines ranging from €15,000 to €16,000.

You can bet this is Ryanair charging a higher price after the deaths of so many in Spain.



RYANAIR CHARGE PASSENGER EVEN THOUGH HE TOLD RYANAIR HE CHANGED FLIGHTS AFTER FAMILY DEATHS..

Ryanair refunds tragic Dublin surgeon after charging him €188 to switch flights after learning of deaths of family.....

RYANAIR has refunded the grieving Dublin surgeon Muhammad Taufiq Sattar after charging him €188 to switch flights last week.

 Mr Sattar attempted to switch from his normally scheduled flight on Saturday morning to an earlier one after learning of the house fire which claimed the lives of his wife and three children.

In an interview with a newspaper today, the respected neurosurgeon who works in Beaumont, Temple Street Children’s Hospital and the Hermitage, said he explained the circumstances behind his change of flight.
Mr Sattar said he was fighting back tears as he explained his situation to an employee at the check-in desk last Friday morning.
However the airline charged him the full new ticket price, €188, to book the new flight.
In the statement issued to the Irish Independent this morning, the airline said: Ryanair offers its sincere condolences to Dr Sattar and confirmed that in the circumstances it will provide a full refund of any monies paid last Friday.”

John said, 
Even though Mr Sattar had explained his family were killed Ryanair STILL charged him to change his flight.Only after the press got involved did Ryanair issue a refund  ..Profit being the priority at Ryanair safety must be a serious issue....

I did the training at Hahn 2012 and one word DISGRACE - PLEASE NO ONE PUT MONEY INTO THIS TRAINING...GO FLYBE..EASYJET ETC NOT THESE GUYS!!!

I went to the seminar in dubin hotel and it looks promising - good pay , nice locations bla bla.. They told us we could pick of the 3 bases and most of the time it would be given.

I paid the money and waited - i was meant to get an email stating base i was getting before leaving..and never...but i went anyway BIG NO NO.

First day my name is on sheet saying PISA..I WOULD NO WAY WANT TO GO TO PISA..I ONLY WANTED UK OR IRELAND BASE!!!! That annoyed me...

Then accommodation is also ridiculously expensive esp for something in middle of nowhere!! We were told we would be staying in a 4 stay hotel - they even met us at one ...but no we got transported to some horrible hostel.

BASICALLY YOU SHARE WITH ONE OR TWO PEOPLE - NOT HAVE A PROPER BED....THE WHOLE HOUSE ABOUT 20-30 PEOPLE HAVE ONE REFRIGERATOR TO STORE FOOD...ONE SMALL HOB...NO OVEN OR KETTLE.... like come on????????????

I wasn't well at the time of going so you can imagine a week in i was tired and lacking food. I had to go to the nearby hotel to get something 3 times a week..i couldn't afford to everyday...the rest of the time was in supermarket getting simple things day by day. The supermarket was also a 30min walk on a old country road which i felt unsafe on. You go to classes from 8am to 6pm with one break - there is no cafe...so you sit on step to eat from a bap van that comes once a day...that is like your only hope!

PLEASE ANYONE THINKING OF THIS PLACE PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY...THE ONLY THING I GAINED WAS 2 STONE LIGHTER AND ILL FROM IT ALL...AND OUT OF POCKET.
