Very good

A short flight on a pretty basic plane. Surprisingly good legroom.

This was a good start to my day, just a pity that didn't continue onto the vehicle hire as replied to separately.

I’ve changed my mind on Ryan air I’ll use them again. I would like to think they enforced the on board bag policy though. I paid to put my bag in the hold but at least one person took a bigger bag on the aircraft.
