 Ryanair yet again
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Tue 29 Aug 19:43

I looked at flights to Italy with Ryanair, for myself and Mrs Riva, last night. We both agreed they were pretty cheap but I was going out and it went out of my head when I got back home.

I went online to book the flights this morning, only to find they had gone up by £20 overnight. Oh well, not a huge sum of money, I thought. They've obviously sold all the seats at the cheaper rate and are now on to the next tier. So, I just went ahead and booked anyway.

A short while ago, I had another look, out of curiosity, to see if they'd gone up any further. Well actually, no. They've gone back down to last night's prices.

Wtf? As I said, not a huge sum of money, but what are they trying to do? P!$$ folk off, or what? Maybe someone can explain the logic behind the yo yo prices for me as it's got me beat.

If there was any other carrier flying to the same destination on the same date, I certainly wouldn't be using Ryanair.

They all do it, if you delete your cookies (or something like that) it'll go back to the original price, used to get it alot with train tickets, remembers your ip address or something

I didn't delete any cookies though, although I was having one with a cup of coffee when I made the booking.........

Do you think that might have caused it 'Arry?............. ;-)

The airlines yield management is different. You normally expect hotel rooms and train tickets just to get more expensive as the date approaches but not with flights, their prices do tend to go both up and down based on demand; the trend is that it'll get more expensive but it's not a one way progression.

Or perhaps one of their channels returned a bunch of capacity.

There is an element of 'so we know your interested from recent searches, you have come back now after a chance to look elsewhere so we'll squeeze you for an extra.

I'm not sure if Ryanair have the same policy as Easyjet but if you book with them and they bring the price down they will refund the difference in vouchers. It's maybe worth contacting them to see if they'll do anything.

I have a flight price tracker thing through Google and it shows you the fluctuation of the prices. A Ryanair flight to Lisa for example has went £76 - 97 - 81 - 101 - 74 - 89 - 103 - 82 - 79 since I looked earlier this year. I think there are certain days when there are lower prices too, usually a Wednesday from memory as people often get paid on a Thursday and so book then straight away and they stay dear over the weekend when people book them after discussions with family etc. They then come down on Tuesday and Wednesday as people have less money or are less inclined to book flights etc on those days. There's a wee graph on Skyscanner that shows you how the prices tend to fluctuate as well, based on flights on similar dates etc.

Skyscanner can sometimes bypass the cookie issue, but I don't think it's the only method used by sites. Their algorithms gauge demand.

The latest I got last week while tracking flights to Romania was only 2 seats left for the return flight.

Once booked I had the choice of over 40 seats, and yes you do have to book seats on Blue Air.

The price had gone up from £240 return to £290 when I booked.

10 minutes later, the price was back to £240 with no minimum seats left!!!!

Thays quite strange - I flew with BlueAir fairly soon after they started flying from the UK and essentially they paid me! The total cost was less than the taxes and charges! I looked later for other flights and their prices were quite reasonable although I know airlines are bad for this sort of thing.

I believe Easyjet now only refund the difference if you are one of the plus card holders.

Car insurance companies do this too. My daughter looked up quotes to renew my car insurance to include her, and the price went up by over £100 within 24hrs, so she waited to ask me about it when I got home, and when we looked again it had went up by another £30 yet again.
I'll remember to wipe cookies before looking things like this up again.

Noticed with skyscanner that they don't show you all the return flight prices until you input your leaving date!

You live and learn. Thanks for all the replies. I'd heard that some companies increase prices at weekends and that you can end up paying more if you look at the same dates more than once - that's why I looked at dates round about when I wanted to travel. Not fly enough, obviously. 😢

What really gets me about Ryanair is the sneaky way they spring things on you. e.g. You can't check in until 5 days before you fly unless you pay a fee, they only used to charge you for using a credit card, now it's a card fee for everyone. The daftest thing of all, imo, is paying extra for "speedy boarding ", a ploy other low cost airlines have copied. What is the fekkin point? You're not going to arrive at your destination any quicker, are you?

At least they didn't go ahead with their plan to charge passengers £1 for a pee, or have us all standing on short haul flights.

Fvckin raging with them tonight. Going to Copenhagen tomorrow with my 12 year old to see Metallica on Saturday. Checked in online and didn't pay the extra for picking seats. Put in all the details and the cants put me in row 1 and my boy in row 30. Done the same for the flight back. Raging. Had a look at the change your seat thing and on both flights, there are seats free next to him. Yet they put me at the opposite end of the plane to him. So they want £5 for me to change seats to sit next to him. Now, if there were no free seats either side of him, then fair enough, we have to get split up, but to then have us at opposite ends, is just outrageous, when there are seats free. Will probably get someone to swap seats but they are not interested in sorting this, without paying them extra.

Never using them again.

CANTS

That's pretty weird, isn't a minor 13 and under? Can understand them casually doing it with folk but not when a minor is involved

It's their new scam as I have 3 flights with them for the Lithuania trip for Scotland. 2 travelling - every leg we are significantly split up, you then look at the flight map and the flight was empty at check in

Top tip is To move to the person furthest back as seat price grades up as you get further forward (not just extra legroom and cheap seats but over multiples). (Assuming there is a space next to them)

We are taking our 5month bairn on first flight in September so if they split my wife and I up then I will be raging/delighted. They did promise to sit parents together at booking but they really are scum with a 0% trust rating
