If you were looking to hit 150 million pa passenger mark with your new purchase, I don't think you'd be tying your aircraft up scuttling them back and forth across the Atlantic.

Summer 15

I know FR have begun loading some of the S15 flights onto their website. Would anyone be able to say when this will be substantially complete, so that (apart from new routes and a few odds'n'ends) it'll be possible to determine what will and won't operate in S15 ?

I know that if it's not on sale by December it's unlikely to go on sale for S15, but I presume it doesn't take 3 months to put a season's flights on sale - a more tightly defined estimate of timescale would be much appreciated

Anyone here with Ryanair connections/contacts who can confirm/deny that Ryanair are operating after March 2015 in Derry /LDY?

As yet they have not loaded summer schedule for Derry 2015 which is unusual and late compared to other airports and the speculationand rumour is that they have said cheerio to Derry.

Cheers.

Girona

Girona is a big question mark-are FR playing hard ball yet again with their threat to move everything to BCN.
No sign of S15 flights to/from UK airports to there yet??

Barcelona T2 could easily take a 25-30 aircraft base for Ryanair, and with the new strategy of mainline airports a move would make sense.

The last few years T2 at El Prat has been almost empty - perfect storm for Ryanair.

Girona

And who will fill the gap at Girona if FR pull the plug?
The sun & sea Costa Brava pax won't want a 90min+transfer to their resorts and the few Thomsons flights will not suffice. Jet2/Flybe/Vueling?

But would the operation be viable without the support at REU/GRO....BCN not as cheap.

Are Ryanair pulling out of Alghero? Flights were on sale for Su15 but aren't any longer.

A friend of mine was on today's FR 7313, ZAD-DUB, due to arrive at 08:25 and currently estimated at 19:35. Live Flight Information says "ATC Delay" for those in the know, is that feasible? Seems a bit of a long shot to me...?

@Noxegon

There are currently no delay listings at all for Dublin, Ireland, Zadar or Croatia on the Eurocontrol NOP, therefore ATC delay It seems very unlikely to me. I don't think I've ever seen an ATC delay last that long. Most ATC delays are in terms of minutes (or no delay at all), with the average per flight in Europe being less than 30 seconds per flight.

ATC delay means no compensation to pax. Been announced as such by many airlines many times. You need to check, investigate and claim if you can be bothered.

Today's news on amadeus.com
Cologne, Germany, 24 September 2014:
Ryanair and Amadeus today announce a breakthrough new agreement that will bring a wide range of the carrier’s fares and full ancillary services content to Amadeus subscribers for the first time in over a decade, via Amadeus’ innovative light ticketing technology. The airline’s ancillary services content will also be made available. The agreement also means that Ryanair‘s new Business plus fares will be made available to Amadeus subscribers, offering business and corporate travellers a tailored package, including flexible ticket changes, a 20kg baggage allowance, fast-track at airports, priority boarding and premium seating.

Under the terms of the agreement Amadeus subscribers will not be subject to any surcharge when booking Ryanair and the fares displayed via Amadeus will have parity with Ryanair’s other distribution channels, including its website.
More info here.

Why it didn't happen already years and years ago?

Why it didn't happen already years and years ago?
Because its an additional cost. I really don't see the point, if 27% of pax are already business as claimed in the link. I certainly have used FR for business travel in the past.

FR is now well on the way to being just another airline; I suspect the changes have been forced through as MO'L is getting ready to leave the company, and his successors know they cannot emulate his business style. Time was when I could go to the Ryanair website, book a cheap ticket knowing that all the money was going to the airline, know that when I saw the aircraft arrive at the gate we would be on and pushing back in 25 minutes (or less on a good day), my flight would be on time and my baggage would get there at the same time as me - on one occasion at Edinburgh my bags arrived on the carousel 20 minutes before those of my colleague on the Aer Lingus at an adjacent gate, despite his plane landing 10 minutes before mine!)

Now, every transaction I make with FR will have a slice taken to subsidise the Amadeus fees (and discounts to retailers so they can get their commission). Allocated seating slows boarding - no need to rush now, you don't have to get to the aircraft to make sure you get the seat you want. If, as suggested here Ryanair tie-up with Amadeus paves way for codeshare deals with national carriers | Business | The Guardian codeshares and long haul feeding start, they are going to start to get into issues of baggage transfer (and losses), delay payments for connecting passenger etc - more costs, more delays. So fares will go up, and FR will be no different to EI, BA or Lufty.

Of course, the middle-class, Daily Mail reading blue rinses will love it - the hoi poloi will be back to the boat and train to England and Europe where they belong, not cluttering up the genteel airports.

Allocated seating or not, the numpties are still queuing up 45 mins before the aircraft is even on stand. So turnarounds are still as quick. There may be a new cuddlier Ryanair, but having been slapped too many times, it will take a lot for people to trust the new Ryanair.

I've always admired FR for their 'no prisoner' policy. Equally, I admire their changes now, because the company that does not change is the company that dies.

I would have thought business travels would want to fly to a city's principle or main secondary airport rather than an airport buried in the back woods.
