^^ Thanks a lot for remembering. I also used to stress about the need for them to be nicer to their passengers and... something has happened in this regard too, so maybe let's just wait a bit?

Eilat

Ryanair to start flights to Eilat (Israel)?

Ryanair poleci z Polski do Izraela? - Pasazer.com

On this Polish website are rumours about possible new flights to and from Eilat in Israel, from Budapest, Krakow, and Kaunas. Nothing is bookable (yet).

WiFi ......just shows how Norwegian have shaken up the LoCo market, actually I'm surprised its taken this long for other airlines to follow Norwegians lead on this, one only has to look at any social gathering and everyone is constantly on their smart phone, the longest people go without is when their fast asleep on on an aircraft. If they plan to charge for it, then it had better work well. Norwegian will be aiming for 30m+ pax in 2016 well behind both Easyjet and Ryanair but along way ahead of Wizz & Vueling

PDL

I notice that DY are starting Caribean from the States using B737.

I wonder if Ryanair have considered PDL as a fuelling stop or an interline
Base for flights to and from the Caribean and USA using there current
Fleet and the MAX when they arrive.

I know from experience when flying to States/Carabean from the UK
That there are many flights that involve a plane change in the States
So why can't that change be in PDL.

The opportunity is there.

Let's say first flight of the day from major FR bases head to PDL
all interlined for flights to Carabean and the Statets

Is this going to be done with their own brand? I appreciate that in Europe the tails with scandinavian people and the red and white scheme makes sense (at least for some). But in the US will the brand make sense to the customers?

Arrived at Malaga airport 2 hours before my flight to Prestwick only to be faced with a luggage check in queue of around 400 people. It will take me about 2 hours to get to the front of the queue. Online check in is a complete utter waste of time if you have luggage which the vast majority of people have. Come on Ryanair GET YOUR FINGER OUT!!

Since the advent of Skyscanner brand awareness is a lot less important. You don't need to know which airline operates a route in order to find their flights.

Not really anything to do with Ryanair however the winter North East Coast - French Carribbean flights are largely targeting the Popular US cruise clientele in association with Fred Olsen Line who will be providing many/much/most of the customers

Pack lighter

Travelled to Spain with SWMBO and Littlies a number of years ago with hand luggage for a 2 week trip we did it with lots to spare. Friends went on same flight over and back.

They were same number as us, had bags of luggage, their comment was we bring everything and don't want to do washing.
We didn't either so 12 for laundrette to wash and press everything was a great deal.

Mate hurt his back lifting case out of car on way back, told me that on way back he counted up and total luggage they had came to 84kgs, we had 35kgs.

Benefit of being light was we had collected rental car and got to apartment while they still waiting for bags, on way back we were home as they leaving Stansted car park.

Now they travel light.

I kind of wonder with FR acquiring a 700, might MOL be considering a Westjet type of TATL operation

Nope he won't and he never will. Destinations far too limited and prices will be far too high. Please get it into her heads. If Transatlantic is ever launched it will be under a different company name as launching it under the same Brand will ruin the low cost name of Ryanair because quite frankly, you its not going to be cheap.

Can anyone with real knowledgeable insight explain the -700 introduction into RYR? How many, for how long and why? They have such a strong single type business model. Where will these be based, on which routes etc. It's a reduction of 40 seats and so must be route/season specific. Also, where have they come from; new or used? I may be behind the news with these questions. Sorry.

One used aircraft for base training only pretty much. It's not a fleet change at all.

Heard that it will be used as a standby as it has a full set of pews.

Interesting. I wonder if anyone else felt the same, but when I hopped from -700 to -800 I noticed a slightly different flare technique to achieve the same bump on touchdown. Given the lack of night flying during training, and other slightly different characteristics in handling, I wonder what the effect will be on the very low hour cadets who will transit via the -700 to line flying -800. LTC's might find their job a little harder. Opinions?
