Visiting Lanzarote in June and flying with Ryanair for the 1st time due to cost (saving about £200!) and the time of the flights are ideal. However my wife and i have a few concerns... we have flown Easyjet a few times over the years and always book 'Speedyboard' and to be fair to Easyjet they ALWAYS make sure that the SB's get on 1st. We have paid for the equivalent with Ryanair but have heard stories that they dont call the SB's and sometimes it can become a 'free for all'... which is the reason why we pay the £3 or whatever the price is in the 1st place lol.
Additionally is there a baggage drop off system at Stanstead and if so how does it work?
