Why do people complain, the rules are clearly stated, what do people expect when the cost of a flight is the same as the taxi ride from the airport?
The price of priority boarding with baggage is a small price to pay.

Hi Jason,
I think for most people (myself included) it is not so much the end cost of the flight, it is the business method used to initially deflate the seat cost & then when they have you on the hook all the “extras” (which aren’t really extras) start popping up. 
1 - Nobody, apart from people who have property & personal goods on the island is going to go on holiday with a “holdall” size bag, therefore they either have to book priority or pay extra for a case. 
2 - if you are travelling as a couple, do you really want to be sitting at opposite ends of the aircraft ? Therefore you need to book seats & again pay extra.
When you get done adding all these bits on, the prices aren’t so great TBH
Just tell me when I can retire   Cool

I think you hit the nail on the head Ron with the point that it is good value if you own a place on Fuerteventura.  We are fine with random seating and about 80% of the time we end up sitting together with zero effort anyway.  In terms of baggage, we are fine with a small carry on as everything else is at our place.

If you are going on a vacation and need a lot more luggage then the terms are pretty clear and the best value is to book hold luggage at the time you book your seat.

The luggage thing isn't really an issue at the Fuerte end as it comes out pretty rapidly - back in the UK (often on a late flight) we've often had to wait ages for the belts to get going, so Ryanair clearly understands the attraction of hand luggage only (for ease/convenience) and prices accordingly. I'm not sure I see anything massively wrong with that? They are a commercial operation after all and it's not exactly an infringement of your rights?

Correct, there's nothing wrong with what Ryanair are doing.  Most people think in terms of holiday flights, but Ryanair has a lot of business passengers who don't necessarily want to pay the price for hold baggage to be included.  Ryanair's pricing structure allows every type of passenger to choose just what they need.

They don't have you on the hook until you pay Ron. Just close the window and look at another airline. We usually travel with easyjet and it's the same. You have to pay for the luggage & better seats, adding up to the final price. If I don't like the price I simply close the window before sharing my card details with them and look elsewhere.

It also looks like most of the airlines are charging a bit more than in the previous years but I don't mind the price increase that much. My wallet is (obviously) crying but it's nice to see them running rather than ceasing trading like TC or Monarch.

That depends on where you fly from Sam. Obviously it is a personal choice to pay or not but from Scotland there are limited options for direct flights to Fuerte so we are to an extent a “captive audience”

One of the reasons why we often fly through GC or mainland - to have more options. But I understand, there's not much of competition up in Scotland.

Simply because there are many fewer potential travellers.
