Ryanair to trial web check-in

Been mentioned in another thread, but here's the confirmation. ... n_to_.html

"Part of our long-term aim is to get 80 per cent of passengers to fly without checked-in luggage. That would be a big cost saving for us," said Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary.

They have recently been cracking down on excess baggage and increasing charges.

Probably won't affect readers of this board, as I'm sure you all travel light anyway ;-)
