Lots of people make the journey from Belfast to DUB. I do it regularly as the routes simply aren't available from BFS/BHD. If the fare difference was big enough I would also make the journey to save money. It is only £8 and two hours on the coach from Belfast city centre to DUB.

GLAinsider, yes they do, data issued suggests 500k NI originating pax do so every year. My point is FR could influence a change to some extent. When they did STN BHD carrying over 30k pax, it impacted STN DUB, and was attributed to BHD operation ... Then again they had £1 one way all in flights !

Flights from CPH on sale - 4 based aircraft serving (just) 7 destinations but FR is choosing CRL over BRU, CIA over FCO.

A new German base will be announced soon. This should be the first step to achieve the market share of 15-20% in Germany anytime soon. Like I said before, they have to go domestic if they want a market share of 20% here in Germany.

It's difficult to get slots at BRU however I expect if Vueling were to fly CPH FR would have no problem making it happen! I expect it's the same for FCO combined with high charges at both.

Ryanair have a slightly revised livery. The font on the logo has slightly changed (not in bold anymore) and the harp/angel has changed angle. EI-DPT was spotted with it on Thursday. Very subtle change but more modern.

Is this the 1st B738 from the order of 175 B738 which was placed March 2013?

No, DPT is one of the older ones, the new deliveries started at FEE and kept going alphabetically

Just looks like a badly done re-spray tbh. Keep an eye on the new arrivals from Boeing to be sure.

Ryanair diverts to SXF after bomb threats

A Ryanair flight from Krakow to Shannon had to divert to Berlin SXF last night after false bomb threats. According to news reports, a drunk passenger repeatedly made bomb threats to the crew. The flight made an unscheduled stop at SXF at 11:30 PM, where the plane was evacuated and checked. No explosives were found. At around 5:45 AM, the flight continued minus one passenger. The man has been held and is going to be charged.

FR lost appeal over EI and are now taking it to supreme court on human rights grounds!

This signals a change in FR attitude to someone trying to get back home.
Pensioner travels from Lanzarote to Liverpool on a photocopied bus pass - Liverpool Echo

The best bit is the quote from the pax:
The pensioner thinks the Ryanair staff made a good decision in allowing him on the flight. He told the ECHO: “I was just glad to get back. I know there’s rules people have to stick to but I think rules in life are just guidelines, they are not black and white.”
[my emphasis]


Now, if I was to suggest that someone from Liverpool thought that rules were not rules? I'd be in trouble.

The Danish Confederation of Trade Unions, LO, announced last week that it has filed a case in the Danish Labour Court to determine whether Ryanair should operate from its new Copenhagen base under Irish or Danish rules. LO threatens to bar members of unions from doing work for Ryanair.

The blockade could force Ryanair to just use CPH as a destination, brining in flights and manpower from other European bases. "We are ready to drop Copenhagen as a base. That would mean a loss of good jobs in Copenhagen but that is the unions’ fault. We will still fly in and out of Copenhagen though" - the carrier´s personnel director Eddie Wilson announced today.

Strange that a southerner, paxboy, weirdly chops off quoting at the very place where it went onto say

Ryanair said: “Ryanair has a duty of care to repatriate nationals on their return journey, and if a passport is lost or stolen, we ask that an alternative, or a copy of, photo ID is provided, in order to verify the passport details of the customer provided at the time of check-in.”
and then

A Home Office spokesperson, said: “A passenger was questioned at Liverpool John Lennon Airport after arriving on a flight from Lanzarote without a passport.

“Border Force officers carried out identity checks and established that he was a British national who previously held a valid passport. The passenger was allowed to proceed after completing paperwork to report his lost passport.

“It is vitally important that airlines ensure they know who is on their planes and carry out proper document checks on passengers. We are investigating the circumstances of this incident with the airline involved.”
And nobody is asking questions of the Spanish forces too.

Been on a flight many years ago with some late teen / early twenties Sailing types who started off on South Coast of England crewing with some friends, picked up a good wind and ran with it. Landed in Spain without passports or anything, owners stayed with both and kids got to Madrid and parents booked their flights back and Immigration (Pre BA) got called by Airline now no longer in existence.
Immigration asked to speak to each individually and phone handed back to airline staff with a comment "yup seem like some of ours, send them on and ask for Officer X at X Airport". Airline staff member then got a fax indicating that X,Y,Z were believed to be UK nationals and allowed to board said flight to UK. Parents required to be at airport with ID and Passports but that was it, sat next to 2 on way home and they shocked they actually getting home and that people wanted to help them rather than jail them.
