Ryanair is one of the leading economy airlines in the EU. Known for its no-frills way of flying, the company caters primarily to families and budget-minded business travellers. Currently, approximately 20% of its 81 million customers are families, a figure that is expected to increase significantly in the coming years due to new advertising. The company currently has more than 300 aircraft in its fleet, and flies to more than 31 countries throughout the world.
The top reason why passengers are denied boarding on Ryanair is due to overbooking. Overbooking occurs whenever the airline intentionally sells more tickets than what there are seats on an aircraft. This is done in an effort to compensate for an anticipated number of “no shows.” Airlines detest flying with empty seats, and will therefore go out of their way to avoid them. This is true, even if it means that occasionally passengers may need to be bumped onto other flights because there are fewer no shows than normal.
When it becomes apparent that bumping is necessary, Ryanair will typically take the following measures:
Each airline has its own unique policies, and Ryanair is no exception. Failure to abide by these policies can result in denied boarding, so it is important to be familiar with them before travelling. One such policy involves pregnant women who are six months or more along. These women must have a note from a doctor or midwife stating that it is safe for them to travel. Some other Ryanair policies that could result in denied boarding include:
Disabled passengers could also be denied boarding if they are travelling with a service animal, as only certain flights permit them. If you plan to travel with a service animal, it is imperative that you confirm you are booking on a qualified flight ahead of time. Ryanair also has a policy against allowing more than four passengers who require assistance on any given flight. If there are more than that, only the first four will be allowed to board. Everyone else will be re-routed.
Passengers could also be denied for a number of other reasons, including:
Ryanair denied boarding compensation is available to help passengers deal with being bumped from a flight. You could be eligible for up to £500 per qualifying flight, provided you have not already been compensated by the airline. The amount of money you are entitled to will depend on the length of your flight. You may not receive compensation for additional travel expenses such as a hotel stay.
It’s important to note that Ryanair refused boarding refunds are not always available, as it will depend upon the circumstances. You may be eligible for a refund if you can answer “yes” to all of the following questions:
