I find this completely baffling.

As someone who has flown RyanAir, I can assure you that they'll make up for the low ticket prices by charging people $800 for carrying more than, say, one pound of luggage.

My flight from London to Cork wound up being not much of a bargain after they charged me $100 for my "overweight luggage" which consisted of one bag with, like, two pairs of jeans and a book in it.

Plus the free-for-all that ensues when boarding is announced and people starting running like hell to get the best seats... well, it makes paying full fare on any other airline look like a bargain.

I guess the old saying is right -- if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Wow. What a miserable experience. You poor thing!
