Ryanair inflight purchases


#1

Just to let users know in case the same happens to anyone else - I paid for food on a Ryanair flight last week (wasn’t bad either!) but when we landed at Stansted and obviously their system synchronised the payments were declined by Revolut due to the geo-location security. I thought I’d bagged a free lunch but you will find Ryanair manage to re-do the transaction a few days later and it was successfully debited 48 hrs later! Still showed as a remote debit (from Dublin when I am in London) so I’m not sure how they bypass the security the second time but all very fair so no complaint!


Gas stations: make it possible to pay at gas stations that pre-authorize 🚗
Wrong names in Curve transactions + declined transaction in a market
#2

Good to know the card works with Ryanair.

I am curious, do you happen to know by any chance if it was a chip + PIN or a magstripe transaction?


#3

What would happen if you did a double-block on both Revolut and Curve? So the airline tries to charge your Curve card (disabled), and Revolut is selected as the underlying card (also disabled).


#4

Cuve was involved? So it wasn’t a Revolut card payment on board?


#5

There is no suggestion that Curve was involved. I am asking what would happen if one inserted a disabled Curve card between the airline and a disabled Revolut card.
