Being terribly cynical about it...

That's one way of putting it.  ;D

Flights / Re: Ryanair delays

My brother waited hours for his case at Stansted 2 weeks ago as well. Being terribly cynical about it is it a ploy to get passengers to spend that little extra for 'Priority' and therefore have their bag with them on the plane??? Just thinking this as I read a report last month that said that most of Ryanair's profits come from the little extras and that they make almost nothing out of the basic flight price.

Don’t really know what the reason is but we encountered delays with both the baggage and flight at Stansted. Going into the UK we used to never encounter any delay getting our bags on the rare occasion we did so. This time it was nowhere near as bad as 4 hours, but longer that we’ve ever had. Someone did say that there was a shortage of baggage handlers at Stansted. I’m not too sure this is not linked to Ryanair now having more hold luggage and/or the ongoing work at Stansted. I was never too sure the new baggage policy would work as planned and am still not convinced. Saying that we’ve found it to be good in the one respect of not having to lug up two cabin cases on and off the plane. The downside is definitely the risk of delay, especially at Stansted. I think any flight delay compounds the risk of luggage delay as they miss their “slot” and have to be squeezed in somewhere. Our last flight into PSR was 6th June and it was an hour or so late, reason stated was the weather (thunderstorm). Looking at limited flight arrivals in the last few days, most flights have been late. Our next flight to the UK will likely be priority to avoid any Stansted delay.

We haven't experienced delays like that at Stanstead although friends of ours have. But, the last 2 times we've flown back into Pescara we've had to wait perhaps 45 minutes for the baggage. I don't know what that equates to in MPH but the bags are only travelling a few metres from the plane!

It didn't used to affect us as we only travel with a small bag each but these days Ryanair put them in the hold so these delays now do affect us.

Flights / Ryanair delays
« Last post by Vignaverde on Yesterday at 09:25:48 AM »
Most of our clients and family have had serious delays in and out of Pescara this last month or so. My sister waited 4 hours for her bags at Stansted after a 3 hour flight delay and almost all of our clients have had delays mostly baggage related. I had one client who was sat on the plane at Stansted for 3 hours and he said the bags from the previous flight were only taken off the plane half an hour before the flight.

Any one know what is happening?

I live in Vasto and my go to places are The Rusty Room for the best hamburger in Italy and La Votte Pieno for typical Abruzzo food.  I also enjoy the pizza and the view at Chavalier.
