Untrue. They don't require printing boarding passes unless you need a
visa check, and they don't charge fees for printing at the airport
provided you've done a check-in and there are actual Ryanair employees
at the check-in stand. Airport employees though may charge you
separately, or choose to issue you a hand-written boarding pass.
