I´ve never flown with Ryanair. In fact, I´ve never flown in any low cost plane, but I think is the only cheap way to travel when you don´t have enough income. People says that flying in this kind of companies is more comfortable because you organize your schedule like you want, at home, but at the same time is worrying because you don´t know if you are going to have any problem until you arrive at the place.
However, my personal experience tells me that it´s better to spend some extra money than having any problem in a foreign airport where you aren´t able to understand the regulations clearly.
Finally, I believe the song is not excessive because it is said that there are a lot of complaints about Ryanair every day and where there´s smoke, there´s fire.

All low-cost airlines use the same method. They display the cheaper price but when you´re going to book a ticket they begin to increase it with extra cost.

I have never flown with Ryanair so I cannot say bad things or good. However, when we travelled the last time the travel agency recommended that we used it because we could have problems with the flight or at the airport, etc.. and not give any solution. So we decided to go to other flight although we chosen other low cost flight also but more expensive than Ryanair but giving more safety.
As for the song I've heard all the words except 'somebody aboard'. And commenting that the singer has a very strong accent.

I completely agree with the lyrics. As I'm Valencian I go very often to see my parents. Flying is as expensive as train but faster, so altough I used to be angry with the Airlines I mostly end up boarding. By the way, when I was listening the song I was remembering all the situations I've lived. For instance, when they sell "Scratch and Win" lottery game. Once, they sold it three or four times in an hour flight! Depressing!!

I`m completely agree with this song!! It is absolutely true, specially the last part when the singer said that at the end of the trip you have to pay a big amount of money for the taxi because the airport is so far from the town.

How unfair we are... Ryanair only chases to train our memory with the boarding cards and teach us a new humble way to travel. The problem is that we, Spanish people, are quite posh and we pack five trousers, seven woollen jumpers, three pairs of shoes... just in case! We should wear the same T-shirt for going out or sleeping...shouldn't we?
By the way, the song is hilarious

I usually travel with Ryanair from Seville to Santander, I´ve never had any problem with this air company. However when I flew with IBERIA or SPANAIR,I lost my luggager several times, and both companies had to pay damage luggage. Is true that you have to obey all the restrictions if you don´t want pay more money, and you have to control the weight of your luggage and its measures. I like fly with RYANAIR, and when I organize my trips I always look fly witn RYANAIR

I never have flown with Raynair. Really, I never have flown in my life (yes, I know. I am an endangered species). However, I know people who travel a lot and I have heard many comments about this low cost company.
Its main advantage is, obviously, the low cost of its flights, but the service and its planes are very bad. The seats are tight. On the other hand, the company only allows you to carry a small bag and you must pay a lot of money if you carry two or more suitcases.
