...it turned out not too bad at all.
Followed all their rules to the letter and only took cabin luggage.
Didn't bother with priority boarding or any other extras and still managed to get emergency row seats coming back.
They organised the queuing in Edinburgh and Malaga so there was no stampede for seats. In Edinburgh they were being very strict with cabin luggage size (no prob. for us as I'd measured the case before buying it). In Malaga it seemed to me some slightly big bags were getting passed, but then there was only one gate agent and the plane was only on the ground for around 30 mins. Always assume they are going to be strict though.
FAs were fine on both flights but slightly better on return flight.
Hot food wasn't great. DD had cheeseburger which comes opened out flat on a cellophane wrapped bit of cardboard. Luckily she was too hungry to care.
Annoying things were the trumpeting announcement on"another on time arrival" and all the duty free/scratch cards/smokeless cigarettes they kept trying to sell. They didn't seem to enjoy having to do it.
So for anyone who is a Ryanair virgin and like me is expecting the worst don't worry it will most likely be better than you are expectiing.
Just remember to do EXACTLY as the rules say!Edited: 07 September 2011, 22:09
