Ryanair to let passengers by-pass airport check-in

“Ryanair, Europe’s largest no-frills airline, is to allow passengers to by-pass airport check-in if they have previously checked in on the carrier’s website.”

Of course it wouldn’t be Ryanair without a catch, “passengers checking in baggage on flights booked after March 16 will now pay a fee — £2.50 stg (€3.50 eur) per bag, per flight, if booked in advance on the website, or £5.0 stg (€7.00 eur) per bag, per flight, if presented unbooked at the airport.”
