After having to pay extra when we left Prague, by not reading the fine print on our ticket, therefore, not having our boarding pass pre-printed, it seems we are not alone. The wave of ingenious or disingenuous ways for airlines to connive more money from us is escalating. This snippet is taken from http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/money/consumer_affairs/article6295745.ece
“From next week Ryanair will charge £5 to check in online and impose a £40 fine per person, each way, if you fail to bring your boarding card to the airport.”
If budget airlines are in your travel plans, read the rules and regulations carefully before hitting the purchase button. You may find some surprises after it is too late.
