Free flights in Europe

Ryanair are currently advertising 'free' flights (- no taxes/ supplements)

For terms/ conditions see:

I tried it for the FREE period and got £19.99 each way plus taxes and charges. The only thing upfront about Ryanair is that there will be hidden charges. The British Government is trying to FORCE them to reveal all charges in future to stop this practise.

kaneda - the EU has now made it compulsory that all charges on flights and holidays originating within the Eu are included in the advertised price. We've had it a while in Holland and I just read it has been adopted EU wide. Should make RyanAir prices more realistic anyway.

In any case i read that Ryanair's chief said that they could probably make money with free flights - seems their onboard sales are good and charges for lots of services take for granted are too - such as bus links once arrive.

And if they get at seat gambling as want they may even pay you to fly

I'm fed up with ryanair. They quote you a ticket price such as £0.99. Then you add on taxes and charges, £10 per bag (and they are VERY fussy about weight limits and hand luggage. Suddenly, 99p has become £55! They desparately need kicking in to touch over their pricing. Oh, and if you take hand luggae only, the charge is ONLY £ 4 for 'priority boarding'. Yeah, as if.....

It is still cheaper than most other flights..and in some not so big airports like the one I use (Valencia) they are the only ones who fly to some destinations. Anyway, I do my maths and if the price is not good I don't fly with them (or any other airline, in fact). When I booked my flights to London , clickair (Iberia's low cost) was cheaper than both Ryanair and Easyjet when flying from Valencia.

exactly, what a bunch of babies. Of course you have to pay taxes, why is this so difficult to figure out.
