Default RyanAir tickets (Stansted-Venice)

I have 2 Ryanair tickets from London-Stansted to Venice that I cannot
use and would like to sell.
They are currently booked at an excellent fare, departing Nov.9, 2003;
returning Nov.14, 2003.

The buyer would pay 65 for the tickets + the change fee of 15 per
ticket. Could also change the dates at the same time, with the buyer
to pay the difference between the amount paid and the amount for the
new dates required.

Prefer face-to-face exchange in London, but could workout a Paypal
deal.

Cheers,
Michael

I belive the buyer would also pay the difference between the price you paid
and the currect price.

Could also change the dates at the same time, with the buyer
to pay the difference between the amount paid and the amount for the
new dates required.

If anyone takes you up on that, they are mad! It doesn't just cost 15
to change the name. The cost is 15 PLUS the difference between the fare
on the ticket, and the currently available one!

In other words it'd be cheaper for them to buy a new ticket.

Not if the original purchase price of the tickets being offered is
80


Lets say they originally cost 100 and the current cost is 200 (all
in)

Buy the tickets being sold, pay the seller 65, pay Ryanair 15 + 100
fare increase, total cost = 180, a saving of 20 on the current
purchase price.

Effectively, Ryanair's policy pegs the sellers maximum asking price to
15 less than he paid for the tickets. Any higher than that, and it
is, indeed, cheaper to buy a new ticket.

The dynamics of the whole thing change pretty quickly, though, as it
gets towards departure day. The seller ought to be willing to take
less and less each day, to avoid the risk of losing the whole cost
he's already sunk,. while the cost of travelling for the buyer is
going up, as Ryanair pushes its fares up closer and closer to
departure.

Treviso the cost is 14.99+14.99+taxes (say 25 quid maximum, should be
less not sure for Italy) gives a current cost booking today for that
flight of 55quid - how can you sell them for 80? What muppet would
buy?


Just what I was thinking...
