It was also reported that the figures can be attributed to exorbitant on-aircraft prices, high baggage fees and fees for airport check in.

The base line price may be cheap but their other prices are at rip off levels and they treat passengers worse than cattle. They don't handle baggage too well either. Because they refuse to use cages, all bags are thrown into and out of the hold by the handlers. This causes damage to bags and their contents.

Perhaps you can explain why the share price fell yesterday after all the good news?

News : Ryanair Half Year Profits Rise 17% To ?452m

Ryanair half year results show a 17% increase to €452 million which goes to prove just because its a recession doesn't mean well run businesses can't consistently make money.
"Well run" as in low costs, low standards and treat staff like dirt..oh yeah! As long as the profits are good, it seems that is the only barometer........no matter how staff and gullible customers are treated along the way....

How exhorbitant when prices are less than what one pays in centre of Dublin, there is no requirement to buy anything onboard if you don't wish to.

As for baggage fees, a decision to reduce checked bags and amazingly on flights I have travelled on over the last year the number of bags you see being taken across to the plane are quite few. Funny when money is involved passenger behaviour changes quite dramatically.
People can always fly with someone else to a different airport if they don't wish to pay baggage fees if they can find an airline which doesn't charge them.

You know little.

Share prices rarely change that much when a company announces its results unless they are spectacularly bad, at the AGM in Sept the company gave an update on its forecast and unsurprisingly the market prices in this data.

Prices changes yesterday hit the whole sector as everybody got marked down on the worry about the Yemeni parcel bombs, reality is that this will effect the airlines which carry freight in the hold quite substantially in costs while carriers like Ryanair and Easyjet don't carry freight.

Ryanair is one of our great success stories and O'Leary is a national treasure we should nail down so he's never tempted to work anywhere else. Irreverent, straight-talking, no BS, arrogant and hugely influential in the airline business, he should get the freedom of Mullingar!

The people who continually moan about Ryanair have plenty of choice for traveling. We've been freed from the shafting and shackling of the Aer Lingus and Brit Airways monopoly that ruled for too many years. It's now cheaper to fly to London than it was thirty five years ago.

Ride on, Micko!

Yeah people are also getting nervous about another Icelandic Volcano. Everyone's shares took a hit, even BA's who posted fantastic figures. It's amazing what Walsh is able to do when he has a work force that are willing to work.

How blind can one be?

The evidence is everywhere. How passengers (aka customers) are treated?
How staff are treated?
What a joke.
Ryanair is a posterboy for most of what is wrong in this corrupt little island

The evidence might be everywhere - but you haven´t produced any. I recently travelled with Ryanair and BA on two successive days - the only difference was that my Ryanair flight was early while the BA one was 2 1/2 hours late.

Dont fly with them then!

If you turn up on time, have correct baggage etc then they are exactly the same to fly with as most other airlines but much cheaper.

People always moan about them - if it wasnt for them then air travel in europe would be much more expensive.

Plus they are one of leading global company and they are irish.

We would also have to fly indirect to a lot more locations. No matter how people feel Ryanair treat people its a lot better than spending 2-3 hours in another airport transferring.

I believe all Ryanair staff pay Irish taxes which is good for us. I think there is some EU case about this...
