But now they have invented a new fee for us doing their work, which is over the limit in my world !
Yesterday I was happy to find tickets for £ 0.79 one way to Denmark. So a family of 4 could fly to Denmark and back for £ 6.32 seemingly, but even without booking any suitcases, the total price ended up in £ 325. So the ticket price says nothing, hence the difference from ticket price £ 6 to payment £ 325 !
One of their fees in the price breakdown was £ 40 for web check in. I couldn't chose anything else in the booking proces, so now I have to check in online, to save them the work of processing me in the airport, and yet there's a fee for me doing their job. It should be a discount !
Another strange charge is £ 40 for paying with credit card. You can't chose any other paying method, and the fee is £ 5 pr. person pr. flight, even though you book 4 tickets two ways in one booking, and therefore only one credit card transaction. So really, it's not a transaction fee, but an extra top on the ticket price
I ended up buying the tickets anyway, but as soon as there's an alternative to RyanAir going to central Denmark from Scotland, I would any time choose it. I absolutely hate this dishonest way of marketing

Is that new then daftdog, I checked in at Prestwick last Friday to go to Gothenburg City Airport. Then again, perhaps that was because it was still an option when I booked last year.
I agree with you on this one, its the end price that counts, not how its made up. The only one I object to is the fee to book with a credit card.
