Bristol Airport was odd yesterday evening. Ryanair were making EVERY passenger put their bag into the size indicator thing, even girls with small handbags, which I've never seen them do before

They were doing that before our flight too. Thought it was way OTT. They only seemed to do it on the flight to Dublin though, the Ryanair flight to Spain, leaving from the gate next to us weren't given the same scrutiny.

Knob doesn't begin to describe her. Would put me off using Ryanair again. Just not worth the hassle of having to deal with jumped up little (in terms of height and not width) Hitlers that work for them.

My wife also had a handbag but Eva Braun was so obsessed with the dangerous flags that she didn't notice it...

Aer Lingus are just as bad. After getting home I just thanked my lucky stars I don't have to live with any of them.

Flew over with City Jet to London City and flew back from Heathrow with BMI. No problems either side, free check on luggage, no real restrictions with hand luggage. On the way over we even got a free beer!!!! Great staff very friendly with both airlines. All that for 155 Euro return from skyscanner.ie (we booked flights in feb).......................if it was the European Carlsburg Cup these would have been the flights provided!!! Thankfully no flights needed for next years final.

They often do It if they have time to kill.. The staff at the gate are mormally on commission for any additional baggage revenue they can get.

We have had the same problem - for the Montpellier game I was told that the flag was too big - it had to fit in the Ryanair bag cage - clearly they cant. It got very heated as I refused to give up my flag (you can have my flag, from my DEAD LIFELESS HAND) and walked to queue to board the plane. It was clear that if I continued with my refusal I would be refused boarding - total c~*k on the desk, who then refused to give me his name so i could complain. I'm still fecking furious with them about it......so I snapped the flags in half and put them in my bag - they do bend back......still annoyed.

I wonder if we could get a wrtitten statement from Ryanir via the OLSC to say that the flags are approved. We use Ryanair all the time (like this coming Sunday) and it is with some trepedation that we carry the flags now. But I do need to have my flag with me at the game......

Maybe Ryanair havn't recovered from backing that Anti-Leinster faction back in 2006 - remember the plane with the Brown Thomas bag on the Livery?

No problem with flags on the Sun 3.30pm flight from Bristol to Dublin, we had about 6 flags and one pole was 150cms

You guys just can't help yourselves can you - doesn't matter what's being discussed you'll always manage to bring the subject around to the length of your pole!!!

Mine wasn't that long but it performed smashingly in the heat of the occasion.
