There were some smiling faces in the crowd I noticed.
But then again there is always someone who is going to get offended.. even if it's just saving face for the constituent vote ballot next year.
Its one of those massively important and bad taste jokes that people will not remember in a weeks time.

With all this love going around will the grunts be getting some water and crew catering for their days work?

Yeah, it's not bad. I don't think the Fare Finder is that great yet, but perhaps it will improve.

New website

I'm really don't like the new website... I like to fly on impulse, so I see where has convenient flights for me, looks a good place to visit... And importantly it's cheap! It's really awkward to find routes from airports, especially if you don't know them... Maybe when a mobile version is released it might be better, or maybe I just don't like change... Time will tell

I assume the pool table is coin operated? Queue ball costing extra?

I always use Skyscanner as V flexible and on Ryanair use its map of routes.

According to The Portugal News
The Lisbon-Faro route that Irish low-cost airline Ryanair inaugurated on Tuesday is to be suspended after 24 April a spokesman from airport manager ANA told Lusa News Agency.

The airline told ANA of the decision on Thursday, just three days after starting the flights without any justification.
Nothing new in fact, a typical routine "try-and-dump" policy. Once again it seems pointless to compete with buses and trains where they are fast and/or cheap enough. What bothers me, it's a different observation.

Many new routes between main airports are not very likely to achieve any profitability this year. Far from that in fact. Like many BRU Zaventem routes, for example. Even for May almost every flight BRU - FCO still costs only 19,99 euro. I think Zaventem charges more. In contrary prices from some minor airports are sky-high, fortunately for FR.

My conclusion is that while some changes to FR policies were unavoidable, the (already visible) improvements in attitude towards their customers may turn to be much more crucial while only time will tell if switching to bigger airports helps them as much as expected.

The low fares are probably going to last until Vueling call it a day on many of the routes.

Standard going rate for airport taxes in BRU is about 28,54 if I recall correctly.

True. I suppose the profits from some of these despised small airports will be the main source of FR income this year. But everything has its limits. To give you an example: this year I organize a group trip to Budapest and for the first time in my memory the Finnair flight from HEL turned out to be cheaper than Ryanair's from Tampere, even without extras. Guess what we chose.

In spite of all I still think small airports do have much to offer, this retreat on the part of Ryanair is quite unnecessary. Apart from pushing away old customers it also changes the attitudes of local authorities who are in charge for keeping small airports alive. FR is perceived as too unreliable customer to invest in these airports, some of them could permanently be closed... quite a few are already threatened.

Are you tighter than a camel's backside in a sand storm? Well here's a top tip.

On Ryanair, instead of paying for a legroom seat, simply hang about in the isle near the exit rows and generally make a nusance of yourself to the crew and other passengers. Pass the time stretching your arms and legs to try and make it look as if you would be in terrible pain if you had to sit in the seat you had chosen for yourself when you checked in.

Then, when boarding is complete, you are the obvious choice for the crew to ask to occupy any vacant legroom seats, if only to get you to finally sit down and out of the way.

Oh, and dont forget your Barbour jacket when you get off!
