RAT5 has a point in that some route announcements can be pretty dull - especially those that join the dots or are between bases. An example might be a Warsaw Modlin - Ibiza summer seasonal route; new information but hardly groundbreaking.

Other new routes are rather more interesting for a variety of possible reasons, perhaps because it involves adding a new airport to the network, a change of strategy or indicates a desire to have a price war with a rival.

Very difficult to know which routes are dull and which are interesting.

Exactly who decides what is interesting & what isn't ? What harm does this information do ? If you find it boring, so what ? Others find it interesting !
Leave it be.

Buddy travelled with elderly relative on Ryanair in last 2 weeks, pretty much terrified from the booking as required special assistance all the way.
Worried about being abandoned somewhere.

A call before flight ensured that something he forgot was taken care of and new boarding passes reissued.

At all airports they met with the lift including a flight leaving 20 minutes late as airport only had one passenger lift to aircraft.

As took 4 flights in all he was shocked and surprised about how it worked and each airport had received everything required.

Given the ease he passed through security and passport control he has suggested taking relative everytime, well the relative suggested this as they hadn't flown in 15 years and thought the way they went was so great.

I like hearing new route announcements, please continue with them.

Just had a look at easy jet, BA, Thomson, Jet 2, Air France, KLM posts and nothing about new routes 6 months in advance. It's as if some guys are wanting to swap playing cards as from the old footballers days. Get a full set and have a free ticket. Time spent in the garden with a fresh glass of red and the QRH is better value than trolling through new schedules. Christ, most guys can't remember where they've been just after final landing: being concerned about routes you'll never travel 6 months in advance seems curious. Ah, a fresh top up has arrived and the sun is shining. Safe travelling one & all.

Billund BLL is a Ryanair base since 2012. What's the difference now? Why so many problems in Copenhagen?

On the public dime..

Kind of scary that a city with a population of 580,000 has 45,000 city officials.

Now excluding children / students, unemployed, elderly and stay at home parents I reckon that 1 in 5 people maybe more are employed by city.

Lets face it how many would you expect to be flying on the public dime during the year ?

Me and others here like knowing what routes are to come. BA, Thomson, JET 2, Air France and Klm rarely have new routes.

Reality check?

I wonder where Racedo (and Google's highest ranking for Copenhagen population) pick up their facts? Copenhagen is Scandinavia's city with the largest population. It has a higher population, somewhere between 2 and 3 times 580 000 (depending on whether you count urban or municipal).

Frank Jensen - Mayor of Copenhagen Municipality

Copenhagen Municipality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Just because a city has a large population doesn't mean people all work for the Lord Mayor nor does it mean he is in charge of it.

BoJo is Mayor of London but that doesn't mean public employees work for him or his office in London. Overwhelming majority in local Govt in London do not.
