Ryanair have been excellent for me, In the past few years the staff have become far more friendly, so that often now, the staff are ten times more friendly and helpful than Aer Lingus (their main Irish rival). And, like the adds say, for me they have always been on time. I have never had a single delay with Ryanair, unlike EasyJet (their main rival in the UK) with whom I have had more flights delayed than on time, which has resulted in me having to sleep in Luton airport before because the plane arrived after the car rental closed. Even with simple things, like the fact that the have the stairwell built in, so you don’t have to wait 15 minutes when you land for the jet bridge to attach. It is very likely that Ryanair are also about to be single handedly responsible for getting rid of Passenger duty in Northern Ireland, which doesn’t just lower their prices, but indeed everyone else’s. I have never been on a Ryanair flight where they have ran out of hot food at breakfast, lunchtime, or dinner time. which happens on just about every EasyJet flight that isn’t its journey from the UK. As @JDE1303 says the legroom is excellent, which is useful for a man like me who is 6 foot 7.
With regards to the whole issue with an entertainment system, the majority of European short haul airlines don’t have one. (British airways being the only exception that I can think of), but at the end of the day who needs one anyway, the majority of people who fly own some form of portable electronic device (like a tablet, phone, or laptop) which can do all the stuff an aircraft entertainment system can do and more.
I fully understand that if you want a luxurious service in first class with fine wine and TV and a three course meal thrown in Ryanair may not be the perfect airline for you, just remember not all of us have enough money to fly like that everywhere, (all in all I’d rather have 5-6 holidays a year with Ryanair than one with BA in first class)
P.S Well done to anyone who read this whole post, I know it’s very long winded
