This was our return flight as we flew out with Ryan Air. That was my first mistake. There is no comparison between the 2budget airlines. I travelled in a group room of 11 and 3 of those were my children. 10, 7 and 5 years old.on the way out on the Ryan Air flight They were all sat apart from me. I could have paid an extra £15 each to be seated together but I opted against that as I thought surely common sense they would at least sit a 5year old with their parent. I was wrong. My son was sat about 4 rows behind me and the staff were less than helpful. He sat with a young couple with no children and they had sweets so luckily he was happy. Make sure you do not go over your allowance at all as they will charge you £20 for each kilo! We were stuck at the front swapping items between our bags and hand luggage and even throwing shampoo etc away as it was cheaper to do this!
On the way back on the easy jet flight it was like heaven. Staff were lovely. Children were happy. All sat together at no extra cost. No charges for going over weight. It was a relief to have a stress free flight! I've booked with easy jet again going ski-ing over new year. Feel confident! Never ever go with Ryan Air!!
