Ryanair Limited is a low-cost airline based in Swords, Dublin, Ireland. It was first formed in 1984, and is named for its founder, Tony Ryan. What originally began with only a 15-seat aircraft has now evolved into the largest European airline by number of scheduled passengers, as well as the busiest international airline for number of passengers scheduled. The company now has more than 300 planes in its fleet, most of which are “next generation” Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
One of the most common reasons why passengers miss their connections is due to the widespread practice of overbooking flights. Although each aircraft can only seat a certain number of passengers, Ryanair routinely sells more than that number of tickets. For example, if an aircraft can seat 200 people, the airline may book 220 passengers. The additional number is intended to cover a certain number of “no shows”, and is based upon current trends.
Airline predictions cannot always be accurate, which means that in many cases more passengers will arrive with tickets in hand than what the aircraft can accommodate. When this happens, Ryanair will have no other alternative than to “bump” certain passengers by rescheduling them onto a later flight. These individuals could be eligible for missed connection refunds from Ryanair to compensate them for the inconvenience.
It is virtually impossible to determine the odds of being bumped from a flight. There are however a few things you can do to reduce the odds of it happening to you. Here are some things to keep in mind:

If you experience any of these unfortunate events, the odds of you making a connecting flight decrease dramatically. While waiting for a new flight, you could encounter additional expenses for meals or even a hotel stay that you were not originally anticipating. If so, you’ll need to apply for Ryanair missed connection compensation to help offset your losses.
To maintain compliance with EU Rule 261/2004, this airline provides Ryanair missed connection refunds to qualifying passengers. To qualify, you must:
In order to receive missed connection refunds from Ryanair, you should contact the airline directly. The odds of you being able to speak with a representative in person are very low, as ticket counters in most airports are unmanned. This means you must telephone Ryanair’s customer service department for further instructions. When doing so, you can expect long wait times, as there are literally hundreds of people calling in every day to enquire about refunds.
