I'm not sure. I never learned any sort of finesse during my base training on either of the sessions I did (ZFTT takes away all the fun now...) and if you've never flown an airliner before I suspect the subtleties you are talking about might be lost on a new cadet. I am not a TRI(A) but I recall then the briefing being they were looking for stable approaches with positive corrections, and a safe flare technique consistently executed. However, with no experience on the -700 my opinion is just that.

I would imagine the real justification is that it's the same type on the licence, and running up 3500 cycles a year on a second hand workhorse is cheaper than taking the same number of cycles from your overworked main fleet.

Is Ryanair Taking a Closer Look at the 737-700? :: Routesonline

The arrival of the dedicated 737-700 will enable the airline to return 737-800 capacity currently used on some crew training missions back to its scheduled programme. But, sources have confirmed to Routesonline that there could be more to this deal than simply to support its training activities.

The aircraft has been fitted with a full interior of 148 seats and it has been reported that Boeing may be paying part of the acquisition cost as Ryanair evaluates the type. Neither Boeing nor Ryanair have confirmed this, although the low-cost carrier confirmed the aircraft will be used on its scheduled programme.
Guess a smaller aircraft would be suitable for many parts of the network....

Don't think the extra range will be used, reckon they will hold out until the MAX's with better economics if they decide to go that way. But having fewer seats to fill and also better runway performance than the 800's could be useful features for FR.

Hertz cancelled there Ryanair contract with immediate effect at midday today, citing breach of contract due to FR dealing with 3rd parties (GDS travel agents etc)
Thats a big move, must be sure they have a good case

Renting a car recently at a major UK airport which I use frequently, asked manager what % of cars are via Ryanair website, he said 40% plus so guess that will put a big dent in Hertz earnings.

Never understood why people rent cars via airline websites. I've never found a deal there that beats my regular non-airline website.

Always getting better

Well true form MOL is to sue Hertz (good luck with that) for breech of contract.

I still can't fathom what the dispute is about and if in any way its connected to the CPH court case.

I can only remember one other corporate individual so ready to press the legal button and that was Maxwell, he fell off a boat........

CPH based aircraft moves to Kaunas form 15 July which commences a daily service to CPH (replacing Warsaw). A further two routes to Bologna and Edinburgh begin in November.

The Kaunas based aircraft operates the morning CPH-LTN also.

Welcome to Ryanair!

Interesting to see what they do with LTN-CPH in winter as it was due to be 4 daily CPH based.

He should swap notes with Donald Trump. He's just announced his candidacy for president(god help us), but also insulted the Mexicans. He owns Miss Universe and Univision have refused to broadcast it. Trumps sues for $500m. He's also called for a boycott of Macy's as they have also shown disagreement with his outbursts.

I doubt either of these egos will win the day, but it'll be fun the watch.

If you hire a car with the airline's partner you have a long wait at the car hire desk. I like Hertz but when I go on Ryanair I use Sixt.

Only time ever found that was at SNN about 10 years ago, at Dublin recently landing late with a lot of flights in the evening I spent all of 15 seconds at the desk.
Rarely have waited any length of time and probably used Hertz 150 days last year in multiple countrys.

So you feel that a Company should just be able to unilaterally break a contract and nobody has a right to challenge it for damages ?

Funny done right at start of European Holiday Season as well.

Ryanair can find other routes, Billund will struggle to get someone bringing in as many passengers.

Yes however I expect most is outbound going by the route network...

Seasonal - Alicante, Bergamo, Chania, Corfu, Girona, Malta, Palma de Mallorca, Pisa, Rome-Ciampino, Treviso

Year Round - Budapest, London-Stansted, Málaga, Tenerife-South

Bar London/Budapesst most is outbound,

DY will pick it up most if they see a market while lots of charters serve the same routes.

The real thing here is will FR decide to pull out of other countries as if they lose the appeal this won't be the last cases....

Clearly Hertz believe FR breached contracts by allowing GDS bookings which could have major impact if holiday companies book flights instead of people doing it. Hertz must be quiet confident they will win any case as they know FR wouldn't just leave it.

Point is that FR have been using GDS for over a year, hence could understand if it was on day 1 but a year plus is not even close.

Problem for Hertz will be that it will lose a substantial portion of business who booked via Ryanair, now they will book everybody, Hertz will of course pick up some of this business anyway maybe at a better price.
However I doubt that this will compensate as simply their fleet buying decisions will already have been made and losing a substantial element of business will be a struggle.

Will be interesting for some of the Hertz Franchise holders who probably will have a claim against Franchise owner. If they acted to damage their business by cancelling a contract with a major business provider.

It will go to EU as do you want unelected Unions deciding who can do business in what country across the EU.

After all in Ireland would you like Unions to be deciding whom Aer Lingus can recruit in manangement jobs ........................like the old days.
