    To be fair we did miss out December when we went to Northumberland rather than abroad. Given we have the time and easy access to Stansted, it'd be rude not to head off
    It would be rude. You are spot on
    As you know I spen a lot of time at stansted
    Last visit I opened the curtains whilst staying at the raddison in the morning to be met with what felt like a Ryan air 737 six inches from my window !
    There's certainly plenty of Ryan air jets based at stansted

      Ryanair have a huge number of fights every day from STN to every corner of Europe. Handily, Emirates are starting a daily flight to Dubai shortly which will enable lots of connections going east

        The most soulless place on the planet excluding Milton Keynes

          Indeed, but a handy hub. I've never left DXB airport!

            I think most travellers have not. You aren't missing much unless you like top end retail and modern overly pampering hotels

              Not really my thing. My brother missed a flight connection there on his way to Perth a couple of years ago and ended up spending 24 hrs there. He said that it was one of the most tacky places he'd ever been

                Had to spend Christmas there a few years ago. Didn’t take to the place at all.

                I’ve turned the “Stop Stansted Expansion” NIMBYs away from my door a few times though. Would have been hypocritical of me not to have done!

                I’ve never had much of an issue with Ryanair although the way they don’t seat you together anymore (unless you pay) is annoying.

                  With Ryanair you get what you pay for. Given it's so handy for me (and you) I'm happy enough to put up with basic facilities given I'm not flying any great distance. I'm not going to abandon proper airlines for long haul trips though, despite some cheap carriers arriving @ stn with flights to the USA. Back in the day, when KLM flew from Stansted, I often used to fly to Schipol,and then onto JFK. It was just as quick as driving to Heathrow or Gatwick and leaving hours of spare time to cope with possible M25 problems.

                    one of the last flights I was on, I was on row 9, hubby was on row 39, quite enjoyed it to be honest, just a pain in the arse when we landed, he was the last off!

                      Lol - I've only been married since October though.

                      Some years ago, Ryanair kept a bunch of us on the runway at Stansted for 6 hours in the snow before cancelling the flight and kicking us out when the bars had shut in the terminal. By the time we got back inside, all the prime sleeping spots had gone as well - an uncomfortable night that was!

                        If people stopped paying extra to sit together airlines would stop this.

                        Flew to Barbados in November last year, and the Mrs was two rows behind me, but with an isle seat, whereas I had extra legroom!!

                        On the way back they put us in first class, but not together. This was not Ryanair obviously.
