Subject: Re: Is Ryan Air for real?

The Ryanair fares are real, but they will add on some of those little fees so that the final fare will be higher than two pounds or whatever. But it will still be pretty cheap.

The really cheap fares generally involve advance reservation; Ryanair can be quite expensive for last minute walk-up fares.

And Ryanair's airports are frequently quite distant from the supposed destination. We flew from London Stansted to Stockholm last year, really to Svasta airport some 100km south of Stockholm. By the time you add in the cost of getting to Stansted and then getting from the destination airport into your true destination the cheap fare doesn't look so attractive after all.
