Slightly bemused by this tenuous football link. Ryanair's current aircraft livery does not feature 'Chelsea blue' anywhere. And 'Spurs' actually play in black and white. I realise that premiership football club names attract attention, but these descriptions don't remotely apply in this instance.

Maybe MOL needs to pay afew more visits to watch Manchester City (he is said to be a fan). Now that is a classy shade of blue!

The first thing they need to do is get rid of the stupid, ridiculous placards glued to the seats and bring back the seatback pockets.

Meh I can disagree. It really makes minimal difference and I prefer it without the seat pockets as then I cannot forget things in them, or put my hand in to find a nice surprise from a passenger before me.

Also, I think in terms of safety, its actually better to have the safety information on the back of the seat, so that's its well within the sight of passengers. Flights can get long and boring, so I'd imagine most pax end up reading them, sub-consciously or not!

In agreement because having seats pockets means they get overloaded or junk forgotten in there, additionally nothing worse that picking up an inflight mag to find it has been scribbled across or half pages torn out.

Looks like also there will be new bases in Ibiza and Santiago de Compostela for S16 looking at some of the flight timings in the STN schedule.
Would also appear a base in Kos.

From a lean perspective having no seat pockets is a great idea, no need to have to empty rubbish from them, simplicity in terms of no stuff left behind, hence avoiding an industry of lost and found, faster turnarounds and at the end of the day the less complexity there is the lower the costs, hence lower ticket prices ...

The bit that really puts me off about their seats is the angle of rake for the back-rest. It is too vertical to be any where near comfortable; and they have 6 hour sectors in their network. For anyone over dwarf height it's a killer. I get the ida of fixed backs; for maintenance issues, burt that doesn't mean they have to be uncomfortable. On my local national carrier they have reclining seats on their older a/c and fixed on more modern, but different types. The up-rigth angle of the recliner is the same as the fixed and is fine. RYR's is near the torture sleep deprevation position. Why? Did no-one from customer service test them for more than 2 seconds. Ah, all those years ago perhaps the customer service department was a myth. The idea of a GLA-TFS or the like would be unbearable.

Lots of new routes announced. But on the other hand, lots of routes will be scrapped this winter.

Münster Airport is completely abandoned, the last remaining route to Malaga is not bookable for summer 2016. Maastricht will lose her routes to Porto and Faro. It looks like Dormund is losing Faro and Girona.

Ryanair is scrapping routes on the tiny airports. For example in Germany, Ryanair focuses more and more on the larger airports (like Hamburg) and current bases (like Hahn).

Ryanair will base a 3rd aircraft in summer 2016 at Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden. Does someone have more informations? Moreover Ryanair want to grow in the next few years from 500.000 passengers to 1.000.000 passengers.

Santiago de Compostela base confirmed as 1 aircraft by FR no new routes announced.

Local press in Vigo say FR will open some international routes next summer, Dublin been the first with more to follow. Nothing on FR website yet.

No new summer schedules launched in a few days now.

Summer peaks aren't loaded yet, when can we expect these?

O'Leary gives a press conference in The Netherlands this week, so the Dutch summer schedule (including AMS, MST and EIN) will be loaded soon I guess.

Looks like WestJet has beaten Ryanair in the race of budget airlines to start attacking the transatlantic routes.

Fly WestJet to London for as little as $199 - Sep 15, 2015

Where is Ryanair at with their plans to launch services into North America?

Ever hear of Norweigen Air Shuttle? They were the first LCC on transatlantic.

Ryanair won't launch transatlantic until they get a hold of a nice amount of Widebody jets (10+). At the moment these are in rather short supply, so I can't see Transatlantic for quite some time on Ryanair.

Ever hear of Laker Airways?

Big newspaper article about MOL trying to cosy up to KLM for a feeder link. This has been broached with BA as well, as discussed on here. "Whatever next"? said Red Riding Hood to the Fox.

Westjet flew St Johns - Dublin for the summer season of 2014 and 2015, and its Halifax - Glasgow that launched for summer 2015 in addition to Dublin.
