Tales of woe involving passengers on Ryanair have become familiar over the years. Nonetheless, it is good to be reminded of the fairly harsh financial penalties which the airline imposes on it’s customers who forget to print out their boarding passes and the like.
Former Westlife star Brian McFadden has Tweeted about his recent experience when flying with Ryanair…and he wasn’t impressed. McFadden forgot to print out his boarding pass and was charged £70 by the airline for doing so. He was also charged £80 for going 4 kilos over weight with his golf bag!
Instead of paying up the singer-songwriter chose to take the train instead. Ryanair hit back with the following comments from their spokeman Robin Kiely “We’re surprised that Mr McFadden, having agreed to print his boarding card, couldn’t manage this super-complex task, which is accomplished daily by over 80 million passengers annually.” Ouch!
So don’t forget your baording pass if flying with Ryanair.
