Ryanair will NOT 'close' its website this weekend

Contrary to reports everywhere, will not be puling its website down this weekend.

A call to Ryanair this afternoon to double-check the closure was still scheduled to take place for 72 hours from 22 February, revealed that all the functionality - apart from the air ticket booking facility - will still be available to users.

Car hire, Isango tours, hotels, insurance, etc, will remain in place.

You just can't book a flight.

Nevertheless, this message has hardly been communicated well to consumers.

Here is the current homepage. [You just be able to see our circle around the note]

[No doubt about it now - 60 minutes after official shutdown of the booking engine]

If they'd never intended to actually pull it down it was a sweet PR stunt. Who knows.
