BOH SUMMER 2015

Regarding the mysterious dropping of previously long-standing seasonal services to Pisa, Wroclaw, Ibiza, Fuerteventura, Carcasonne, etc etc; could it be that they want to show how much of an impact they have on the airport if FR don't renew a few weekly flights? It seem's late in the season not to be on sale with flights from March/April onwards...

Hoping to be proved wrong and that the seasonal, very popular services will be uploaded soon.

Nakata77,

Re you post about BOH 2015; maybe it's that MAG know FR is scaling back, hence they put a deep cut deal on the table to keep the airport busy. Why would FR have an issue with BE coming in, there is no proposed overlap....?

Keeping BOH reliant on Ryanair is in Ryanair's interest.

BIQ or even TLN could potentially be something that Ryanair would want to do from BOH, so it's brave of Flybe unless as you say Ryanair was signalling an intent to cut back...

Why don't you just accept that they have dropped a few destinations, and they're probably not coming back?

Ryanair drop and start routes all the time, a seasonal one aircraft base is hardly their biggest concern.

Ryanair wants to base a third Aircraft in Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden 2016.

Colm O'Shea told this in a interview to a local press company a few day's ago.

O'Leary is becoming a poodle.

So O'Leary is noe going to become a nice manager and a good employer.

Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary admits they should have been 'nicer' to customers | Daily Mail Online

So does this mean that he is going to compensate all the pilots, whose lives he tried to destroy? Does this mean he will make a minimum of 40 mins for a turnaround? Does this mean that he will allow professional aviators to do a professional job?

Pigs may fly.....

Always makes me laugh when I read the Daily Wail comments section on a Ryanair article; 'too little too late' 'O'Leary has made them fail' 'I'd rather walk' etc, beyond deluded the lot of them.

MOL: 'Humility a great trait, it took me 25 years to learn it'

From The Irish Independent, 26th November 2014

"We're the biggest international airline in the world, it's not Pan Am, it's not British Airways...it's a bunch of bloody Paddies based out in Swords."
With an interesting video clip for anyone interested in reading between the lines of business strategy.

Over in a flash: short Ryanair EGM seals $22bn jet buy - Independent.ie

Nice idea, but I think it's just a one-off for the Six Nations rugby. Search for SNN-EDI-SNN for March 20-22 2015 and you'll see.

There are also flights on the Ryanair website for SNN-CWL-SNN and DUB-CWL-DUB re the Wales v Ireland game the previous weekend.

So, I read that RYR's new B737MAX will seat 200 at 28" seat pitch. One more reason (of the many I have already) for me to avoid them like the plague! Should also be lots of fun with the hand baggage!

That depends which article you read. Every one I have gives 28, 29 or 30, and uses words such as "could" or "should", they do not say will...

When the seat of person in front can't recline then a 28 inch seat pitch is perfectly acceptable for a short haul flight.

Ryanair Salary for Permanent and Contact roles

Hi,
Can anyone kindly help me with concise and accurate information about the salaries for both the recently advertised Permanent and Contract roles?
I have been on ppjn and, as usual, ppjn is pretty unclear and uselss. Nor does there appear to be any info in the last 20 or so pages of this thread.

In return I can provide info about life in the UAE / Dubai......just ask.

Basically,I have 8000TT, 2000 as Senior F/O on the NG and 3000 command on a turboprop including line training.

I want to appraise Ryanair and will be grateful to anyone that can give me any accurate info about the package. And I am more than willing to return info about life in DXB.

I can also be conatcted at [email protected]

Thanks.

The reason that you can't get solid information is that the company deals with each base individually, with dozens of different contracts. The waters are muddied sot hat no-one really knows what is going on and to prevent cohesion or collective bargaining by the pilots. Divide and conquer, my friend... In short, the UK bases are on the best pay, but FOs in many EU bases are on as little as £18k basic, and captains on £36k. The new contracts are astonishingly poorly paid. Don't forget to factor in all the costs of employment - licence, medicals, equipment, uniform, initial training (recurrent is by company if employed, but paid by you if contractor, and hotac for training is at your cost regardless), food and drinks at work (none provided)...

Since when was >4.30hrs i.e. Canaries, Cyprus, perhaps Tel Aviv 'short-haul? Back-ache airlines. I fly an airline as pax where their 'seatback upright' position has more recline than RYR or ez. After that they even have recline. I accept the financial reason for fixed setbacks, but the angle they've chosen is rubbish. If you're a midget, perhaps, but not for an average bloke.
