Reasons for trip

Choosing seat (Pre-booked an aisle seat at reasonable extra cost), online check-in, and printing boarding passes (both ways) at time of booking was smooth and welcome. The new cabin baggage allowance is a great improvement on old. I can now take the same cabin wheely-bag that I use on BA, Turkish, EasyJet etc etc but with the addition of my ‘bought in Chinatown, L.A’ shoulder bag in addition – new to Ryanair since my last visit. This extra wee bag happily took my netbook and Kindle, along with their power supplies – and the bag of toiletries which, together, would have taken my wheely over the 10kg allowance (only because, on this occasion, I was also carrying paperwork for exams to be conducted in Galway and without which I may have stayed under the 10kg in any case). Usual scramble to get to the queue for boarding, and usual Ryanair ‘walk down the airport stairs then up the aircraft stairs’ routine (Ryanair avoids using airport ‘air bridges’ – makes it cheaper for Ryanair I expect, but also means they’re not going to be delayed on turn-around by an air-bridge driver being late?).
