Making the Cut with Ryanair

Ryanair luggage size check. This lucky lady made the cut. She can take her bag on… with no additional charge. (The friar in line behind her didn’t.)

Ryanair has very strict carry-on policies….

…and after I paid, using my iPad at the airport to check my “oversized” bag, I made the cut, too! This is all I brought onboard for the second leg of my flight.

This is the size bag you’re allowed to carry on.

It’s all sort of like waiting for the bus… no reserved seats. You just get on and pick a place you like.

There were some raised voices regarding the friar’s bag. He and the gate agents were still arguing, even as he and his rolled toward the plane… but they did eventually let him slide by with an extra inch of baggage dimension.
Finally, we could all travel in peace.  Happily, a rainbow followed us most of the way to Greece.

Yow pay for all extras… but that’s no so bad, because you get to pick exactly what you want to pay for… and to eat. You order out of a magazine. The ham and cheese croissant and green tea cost me 4.50 Euro.

It wasn’t exactly “flying the friendly skies,” but I’m glad to have had the chance to fly with Ryanair.
