A judge in Spain has ruled that Ryanair cannot charge passengers for failing to print out their own boarding cards.

A case was brought by a Spanish lawyer, Dan Miro, who was charged the standard Ryanair fee of €40 for failing to print his boarding card before a flight.

Judge Barbara Maria Cordoba of the Barcelona Commercial Court said in the ruling 'the normal practice over the years has been that the obligation to issue the boarding card has always fallen on the carrier.'

They have pulled out of individual airports and indeed drastically cut flights at other because of rows with airport operators, but I think pulling out of a country the size of spain would be financial suicide and O'Leary knows that. It wouldn't stop them issuing the threat as you say thought.
 
O'Leary knows fine well that charging €40 quid for a boarding pass is ridiculous as is charging €6 to check in on-line. They are both essential parts of flying, not optional extras.

I agree wholeheartedly that you can't justify a charge on checking in online and one for checking in at the airport, there isn't a third feckin option. I wish I could afford to fly with the better quality airlines all the time, could you imagine if we'd had to fly to yerevan with ryanair Dead

Ryanair anywhere with a flightime over an hour is a pain. Like that would love to be able to fly with other airlines. I laway check aer Lingus and if its not too much more I opt for them.

I'm glad that this fraud has been challenged.
Although I use Ryanair a lot, this particular business of scalding people for €40 is outrageous given that almost every other airline does it for free.

I can understand that eliminating ground staff helps keep the fares down, but I can't for the life of me understand why they haven't got automated kiosks that can be used to print boarding passes like Aer Lingus.

I hadn't the cajones to spend money testing the waters after I couldn't print out boarding passes last summer due to a technical problem with their website. Whilst I had no problem exiting Dublin as they were a aware of the problem, I was caught for 2 x €40 to get back.
I wrote to Ryanair on my return but was advised that I had a weeks holiday to go and get the passes printed out and they weren't issuing any compensation.

Just as bad are the computer terminals in airports, ridiculous rates to use and they charge a few quid to print one page out!

Good to see but I doubt it will have any repurcussions all the same. It's still in peoples interests to have printed their own boarding pass to avoid queues etc.

Always enjoy reading about the battles between ryanair and customers/governments/airporte,etc - always entertaining!
 
But for those giving out f*ck about them, if ye dont like them, dont fly with them - simple.
 
You have a choice - can fly via somewhere with another airline (if ryanair are the only ones that go direct), or pay extra going with another airline.
 
Ye know what ye can expect from ryanair before ye book - if you know how to use them properly, they're the best and most affordable airline to fly with (and i love the fact the seats on the plane dont lie back - I go to lanzarote a fair bit and i must admit prefer flying with ryanair over aer lingus for that reason alone!)
 
I wouldnt have got to half the places ive been to without ryanair - like ive return trip to manchester for 42euro all in in a few weeks (my mate booked it a week later for 30e) - ye cant beat that!
 
Its idiots that usually get caught out using them - who end up paying 'penalties' which helps keep the price down for the rest of us that can use them properly LOL
