Damaged in transit

Flying with Ryanair and your bag gets damaged, then don't expect Ryanair to pay you any compensation.
Before accepting your baggage for flights to Malta Ryanair insist you sign a waiver so that you can't make a claim against them for any damage.

It makes you wonder what they will come up with next Undecided
I've never had to fly Ryanair and stories like this make me pleased I've avoided them.

Re: Damaged in transit

Further into the article it states:
Quote
The statement read: 'If a customer is travelling with a bag that has any damage (minor/major) they are requested to complete a limited release tag so we can identify that the bag had been previously damaged prior to carriage on board a Ryanair flight.

So isn't it really only bagage that already shows signs of damage being tagged? If that is the case then I don't see an issue. They should have travel or contents insurance to cover them anyway.

and when they are packing they get the heaviest member of their family to sit on the suitcase so that they can do it up then they complain that a bottle of after shave is broken at the other end.

Re: Damaged in transit

@Mav, yes it does clarify that only damaged bags are tagged - but why only at Malta then Undecided
Many years ago American Airlines noted damage to bags but they don't seem to do that any more.
