Ryanair, the discount Irish airline famous for incredibly cheap fares, combined with massive charges for anything extra (recently, it's talked seriously about charging for bathroom access), announced that passengers would need to check in online, or face a large additional charge of £40. Yet... just a month later, it announced that it needs to take down its website for a whole 10 hours for maintenance purposes. So, if you're planning to check-in or fly during that time period, you might be in a bit of trouble. Regulators aren't pleaseed either, noting that it's irresponsible of the company to both require online check-in and to close down the website for a significant period of time.
