Im planning on leaving SDC around 29/8/07 and have been looking at Ryan air for about 55E (Iberia quotes over 450E!). I've heard some things about Ryan air about check in luggage-the web site says it's extra. It's also extra to confirm online.......
Any comments from anyone who has flown Ryanair before would be appreciated

just noticed this .... it's ages since you posted so you probably already know now. i'm flying with Ryanair - got a nice cheap flight and then found that if i want to check any luggage in it's an extra £10 each way. that said, it's still a good bit cheaper than other airlines.
yes it is true, ryan air charges 5 pounds to book online (the only way is by the interent) then another 5 pounds NOT TO CHECK in a bag and $10 pounds to check one in. guess they have to make money somehow. however my fair santiago to London was 15E which is $23cdn. Pretty cheap!! they are a great airline otherwise.

I got my return flight to London Stansted for £17 (inc. tax and other fees). That's pretty damn cheap, bearing in mind it cost me £50 to get a return rail trip to Bristol!
When to purchase Ryan Air ticket?

Do I need to purchase my Ryan Air ticket before I leave the states (with a best guess date?) or are seats plentiful enough to book when I arrive in SDC? I will need to fly to Madrid to catch my flight back to the U.S. Thank you!
