    If someone tells you it can't be done,
    it's probally because they don't know how.

    What happens when they land? Normally everyone has to be in their seats and have their seatbelts fastened. Other than that, I wouldn't mind it. Like they mention in the article, it's just like riding the train / subway. The "free" part is odd though. I wonder if you get to bring luggage.

    Airlines usually advise passengers to remain seated with their seat belts
    loosely fastened..

    When I used ryanair to fly from London to Belfast is literally cost us $.02 round trip. It's once you get there the price starts to go up. 8 pounds for each bag handled each way. So in the end it cost me 16.02 pounds round trip- still not bad but the flight was only like 1.5 hrs.

    Hold on. Not bad? Seriously? 16.02 pounds...so, at 1.6 USD to the British pound, we are talking $25 for a 1.5 hour flight? And that's 'not bad?' I want to live where you live, but I just don't have enough drugs.

    I don't care if he was in Timbuktu. $25 for a round trip flight anywhere is dirt cheap.

    Didn't Ryanair recently want to charge to use the toilets?

    hanratty21 Ryan Air are very evil. 10 to take a bag in the hold - and that's just one way, 10 if you pay by credit or debit card (how else do you pay?). So a 0.01 flight becomes 30.01 without too much effort. But then that's better than 100 - you've just got to find the right time, day and flight - you can easily be overcharged and pay more than going on British Airways.

    I wonder how many people survive plane crashes because they were wearing a seatbelt. They are just there to make passengers feel that they're safe (just like all security checks post-9-11 like taking your shoes off, confiscating lighters and liquids).

    The seat-belts are actually quite important. Try sitting with a loose seatbelt next time your landing, and see if you can push your back into the seat. The G-force you are experiencing while landing is actually quite large, and the seat-belt is necessary to keep you in your seat.

    Ryanair has those special offers where you pay €5 for a single ticket, but the catch is that the return ticket costs some €35. Usually when those offers are around, I book a flight from Dusseldorf to where ever I'm going, and the flight back I book a ticket to Eindhoven airport. Two single tickets really. I once paid just €30 all-in to go from Dusseldorf to London, London to Dublin, Dublin to Madrid, Madrid to Barcelona, Barcelona to Florence and from Florence back to Eindhoven. Now that was a dirt cheap holiday.
