They're updating their summer schedule. May be having an issue with the update as it's blocked booking flights during the summer for the last hour or so.

In the last few weeks Reus has had flights to several destinations disappear from this summers schedule; could they be moving to Castellón?

LH-Group responded quickly to Ryanair's intentions on CGN-SXF - before the Ryanair flights have even become bookable germanwings/Eurowings have today started to sell CGN-SXF and STR-SXF (3 daily on both routes) - an airport that germanwings last served in 2012 I believe. That is in addition to the existing flights to TXL from those cities, that will be maintained at existing frequencies.

Looks like the battle is on.

Ryanair W15/16

FR have started loading their winter schedules but most of which are not yet actually on sale.

Looks like all of their bases in the UK will see growth to some extent next winter with maybe the exception of PIK (and BOH if you count that as is a summer only base.) Still waiting though for EMA and MAN. I wonder if this is maybe a sign of more significant expansion?

I know it's very early days but seems odd there's no flights to Tallinn and Vilnius with also only DUB and STN going to Kaunas at the moment (although STN is on a KUN based aircraft). Riga seems to be normal. Is there something going on with FR in Estonia and Lithuania, or just for whatever reason not uploaded yet?

When can we expect the next round of schedule launches and route announcements? Monday? Tuesday? If its Tuesday I hope its Ireland to fit in with St Patrick's day.

Board have approved T/A flights and could happen within 5 years. FR in talks about aircraft.

Dublin, London and Berlin in Europe while New York, Boston and Chicago in the US appear to be the starting cities.

Ryanair?s board approves transatlantic flights

Make off they will do a hub operation, especially in Dublin and London.

According to this article, Ryanair, in fact already has 787 dreamliners! Is this article confusing Ryanair with Norweigen, thereby further confirming the terrible american journalism, or does Ryanair have a secret stash somewhere?

Will they actually fly to New York e.g JFK, or somewhere outside of New York? Shannon perhaps

Like that "Come Fly With Me" tv show stunt.

They had a rip off of Ryanair called "Our Lady Air".

Cabin crew: "Dear Passengers, we will soon be landing at our destination."

Passenger: "But we've only been in the air an hour?"

Cabin Crew: "Oh see, to save money, we land at airports outside the main cities. We are now landing at Barcalona-Shannon airport."

Passenger: "But thats miles away from Barcelona!"

Cabin Crew: "Dont worry, you can purchase transfers at a low cost to bring you to Barcalona. It goes Shannon-Rosslare, Rosslare-Wales, all the way back across the UK to the channel tunnel, then onto france and finally from northern france all the way over to Barcalona!"


Seriously though, they will need to do it with the main airports because nobody's going to drive across a country with completly different laws, cultures and currencies to the European countries.

It's not entirely unrealistic to think that Norwegian's Long Haul operation might go tits up, in which case Ryanair could acquire the aircraft for a song?

That is assuming that the short haul arm of the company is a separate entity, which I'm not sure it is.

Well with consolidation and mergers still a major factor in Europe within network airlines why not also among the low costs? Maybe Norwegian into Ryanair is logical - maybe even Wizz into EZY, who knows?? German/Eurowings and Vueling are really only marketing brands of other groups.

Who's to say that the vision of 5 airlines across Europe won't happen????

Easy Jet with Ryanair would be one monster of an airline.

Would such a merger be allowed by the Monopolies politburo of the EU?

Such a merger would never fly. The culture differences would make the N.Ireland troubles seem like a Morris dance festival.
