This pic clearly shows the difference/inconsistency in the livery. In the titles and tail logo.

I always thought the tail looked wonky, looks better now, prefer older font though, even though there's not much difference

As some Danish sources say, Ryanair's marketing manager will go on a tour next week aiming to start a new kind of relations with Danish companies. FR want to establish business agreements with largest companies active in Denmark and Scandinavia offering them discounts and attractive deals.
Quite a novelty, certainly it's a different approach of Ryanair to the business travel.

FR special rule

Following ref Nigel Owens on Twitter , this morning he drives 2 hours to BRS airport to fly to Dub with FR to ref tonight's match, to be fair his fault but he forgets his passport , a special FR rule, no way is he allowed to board and heads home to retrieve passport and tweets his frustration, 7am this morning EI pick up
The tweet and score a try plus a conversion and gift him a tkt ex CWL and of course EI do not ask for a passport just FR and neither UK or Ireland ask for passports for cross channel pax,

EI were the toast of the town, early risers too ! Why do FR invent barriers to air tvl? Still a pleasant positive or story on a quiet day

While I agree with you about the passport requirement you omitted to mention that the same Nigel had a spat with EI a few months ago over a long delay at BRS and that's why he elected to travel with FR this time .

Top rugby ref Nigel Owens finds himself centre of twitter attention over flight delay - Independent.ie

Aer Lingus offered him one of their props? Are they not suffering from IAG concussion at the moment?

Referring to Nigel Owens as a "top" referee is stretching credibility a lot.

Tr is a more appropriate word.

Looks like a new base at Berlin-Schonefeld (SXF) from the winter season...

FR4732 dep. SXF 06:30, arr. BGY 08:15
FR4731 dep. BGY 08:40, arr. SXF 10:25

FR4734 dep. SXF 19:55, arr. BGY 21:40
FR4733 dep. BGY 22:05, arr. SXF 23:50

Still no times showing for STN yet but would assume that would change to an SXF aircraft, so probably 2 aircraft?

I agree. It is less claustrophobic looking but those stripes look like they could trigger epilepsy or migraine.

FR announced at ITB at Berlin that they will launch domestic flights in Germany soon - rumours: Berlin-Munich and Berlin-Cologne/Dusseldorf. Some years ago FR offered SXF-NRN, SXF-HHN and BRE-SXF.

Main domestic routes in Germany are HAM-MUC; TXL-MUC, HAM-FRA, TXL-FRA, TXL-DUS, TXL-CGN, HAM-STR, TXL-STR, DUS-MUC, CGN-MUC. There is quite a high competion with high speed trains.

Hanover would be a perfect base for FR as well. No real competition from 4U, no EZY, DY or W6 and just a few VY flights. With just a few based aircrafts they could be number one airline of this airport.

Stuttgart and Nuremberg would also be good options to compete directly vs 4U and AB to gain market share.

As of today I do not think FR will open bases at HAM, DUS, FRA and MUC. Smaller airports in Germany are always an option for bases but there is no competition with 4U, EZY, VY or DY and less business traveller.

True or false? Rumours suggest that over the past week, during the ongoing strike of Norwegian Air Shuttle, its CEO Bjørn Kjos and Ryanair's O'Leary have talked a number of times. According to some sources, both mergers and acquisitions have been discussed.

Wouldn't a merger between the two companies work pretty well? O'Leary wants more aircraft, not many routes overlap, long distance routes are planned...
