Ryanair refund


N

No Travel

I booked some Ryanair flights for September but I never confirmed
the flights and in the end I didn't travel.

Is there any residual part of my payment which I can get reimbursed?

I log on to the Ryanair website but I can't see an option for any
reimbursement. Ryanair probably wouldn't make it obvious anyway.

Eh? By paying for the flights, you confirmed your intention to fly.

What confirmation are you refering to?

Why do you think Ryanair owe you any money for not turning up to a
flight you paid for?

are you saying that flights can be booked or rather pencilled in and paid
for then if not confirmed by you after say a day or a couple of days then
they are reallocated.

Well, in theory at least I can see that the tax you paid should
be refundable.

But lack of confirmation is not the same as assumed cancellation. I rarely
confirm as I always forget, but never having problem getting onboard.

You should be able to get the tax back in theory but Ryanair charge an
administration fee that cancels it out by the looks of things, as I
found out recently. And, yes, it is impossible to find out anything on
the website.

Yes, the tax. Ryanair got taken to court about this though so don't
like it and therefore charge you an "administrative fee" which is
equal to the tax.

They don't make it all obvious, but you won't get anything anyway.

flight you paid for?
Possibly because Ryanair made a small but significant saving in their
costs (e.g. fuel used) and that it would be only fair for them to share it.

Ryanair don't do fairness. Why anyone would want to fly with the abusive
cunts is beyond me. OK, they are cheap, but would you eat shit to get a
cheap deal? Apparently some thick as pigshit Brits would.

And they lost in terms of the coffee you'd have bought on board, and the
scratch cards, and the perfume and cigarettes and duty free drink, and the
sandwiches and Pringles, and the watches and jewellery and models of the
aircraft.

It seems to me you probably owe them!

Since I have never flown with Ryanair, I must owe them thousands. Tell you
what, tell O'Leary he can call at my place for payment so I can tell him in
person to **** off and die agonisingly slowly.

No, they don't do meals.

No of course not. However, if you divide the total sales on board by the
number of passengers, it comes to a tidy sum, and it's one of the ways
Ryanair keeps its fares rock bottom. If you don't take the flight you've
booked, they have been denied the possibility of selling to you. And by not
cancelling, you have denied them the possibility of selling your seat again
and having another passenger to sell their goods to.
Tell you what, tell O'Leary he can call at my place for payment so I

Why? It's largely because of him that air fares are now so low, and why all
other airlines have had to retreat from the extortionate fares they were
charging only a decade ago.

In the late 90's I flew ordinary class with BA to Berlin. The return fare
was £399. Would you still like to pay fares of that order, even if it did
include a meal and a coffee?

How significant is the fuel saving? How would that stack up against
variation in fuel consumption caused by weather conditions and other
factors?

The total fuel used for a flight, divided by the number of passengers, can
be a sizeable amount per passenger. But what is the actual saving if one
passenger doesn't travel (since most of the weight must be in the aircraft
itself)?

Anyway, I would expect ticket pricing to take account of a certain number of
no-shows across all flights; for a refund to be given in these
circumstances, would likely increases prices for everyone. And almost
certainly Ryanair T&Cs would rule out most forms of refund.

I've never paid an LCC anything at all once I've got on the plane. I don't
think I am alone

He might be saying that, but if he is, he is wrong.

I suspect that he means he didn't check in. Though as the deadline for that
is 40 minutes before the flight leaves the airline will have zero
opportunity to re-sell the seat of an unchecked-in passenger and it is
unreasonable to expect them to try to do so. (Not withstanding anything in
Ryanair's T&C which might override such an expectation anyway)

When you fly on any airline you have to confirm you will attend
by contacting the airline a few days in advance.

Ryan Air split out the charges for every little thing. Here are
some and this doesn't show the money taken for taxes and
insurance.

http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/faqs.php?sect=CHARGES

If they didn't split the costs out so minutely then maybe as a
no-show I would forfeit the whole amount paid. However as they
specify what the charges are for then there are several charges
which my booking did use. For example....

I paid an extra fee for checked baggage and there is no way
RyanAir incurred any cost for that.

I made no use for what I paid under "boarding fee".

I didn't make use of what I paid under "online check-in".

Interestingly the T&Cs don't rule out refunds but Ryan Air handle
that by raising an admin fee for the cancellation. I posted to
ask if there might be still be a residual amount left for me
after the admin fee was paid.

Cheers mate. Thanks for the info. Got to watch out cos several
replies didn't even understand the question or what Ryan Air does
but they still answered.

Ryan Air are expensive because the advertised fare is only a tiny
fraction of the total cost and they are totally inflexible.

If you ordered a meal in a restaurant but decided when it was served up that
you weren't hungry and didn't eat it, would you expect a refund?
