Topic of the Week: Ryanair Charges You So It Can Compensate Stranded Travelers

Ryanair is unhappy that it has to pay compensation under EU rules to people who are canceled or delayed even if it isn’t the airline’s fault. So, it has introduced a €2 compensation levy on all bookings. Some say it’s awful that Ryanair is charging a fee just to compensate people if something goes wrong. Others applaud Ryanair for highlighting the tremendous cost of a rule that may not make sense. What do you think?

And yes, I realize today is April Fools’ Day, but this ain’t no joke.
