I have heard many stories about Ryanair...but this one is priceless wink

A father paid for 2 flights to Ibiza for this daughter and her boyfriend, Sadly he put the wrong surname for the lad on the ticket.  When the boyfriend rang Ryanair to change his name, he was told the cost would be £220

So.... he was having none of that. He changed his name for free by deed poll .....and got a new passport (£103) He said it was his way of 'sticking it to Ryanair' ...Happy Dance

I had to re-read it... to check it was true

The moral is - never try and surprise people! LOL

True...Oh and incidentally, I use Ryanair all the time when I fly to Spain. People can moan all they like but they are still the cheapest around. In all the years I have been flying with them they have never let me down... All I want when I fly to Spain is to get there quickly.....with no frills or fuss. (Now I have said that whilst in Spain...I am crossing my fingers of course) Fear

Why anyone would choose to fly with that clown's airline is beyond me:

I know he's only winding us up, but even so. Let the train take the strain wink
