Me too, Ryanair wouldn't normally announce a seat sale at midnight in this manner but anything could happen, can't be any massive news though because something regarding say Longhaul or Airline partner with interlining would have leaked before midnight

As many are aware, late autumn is a time when many European airlines announce new leisure routes to start in the following spring.

Ryanair (and Easyjet) seem to have been rather quiet in this regard - in particular very few airports seem to be joining their network so far. In about two or three weeks, Europeans start ignoring the news and think only of Xmas, so if press releases are to be issued it needs to be soon or they will have to wait until next year.

So... anyone know if a few surprises are coming or are Ryanair purely in join-the-dots mode and completely done with flying to haystacks in the middle of nowhere ?

I think both are in a wait and see position.

If Oil still remains low next year and bookings for next couple of months are good then suggest some new routes (or going back to old ones).

I sense a holding pattern at the moment from both.

It seems all good news for LCCs at moment and that is a concern given 8 years of turmoil.

I'm somewhat astonished by the glitch in the Ryanair booking system and I try to predict what are going to be its consequences for the carrier and its passengers. Want to depart on, say, Friday? After you have selected the day from the flight calendar, the booking system puts in your basket the ticket for... the next day. If you are observant enough, you are still able to verify it before the purchase, but otherwise you end up with the flight for Saturday. Unhappy? Now, let's wait and see will FR be friendly enough to adjust your booking afterwards...

Can't believe? No, it's not just today, it started at least a week ago. Try to simulate any booking, surprise yourself.

Hmmm, hasn't happened to any of my bookings made this past week and is not happening as we speak either. I've just done three test bookings. Strange.

Ryanair, Aer Lingus, Norwegian have all moved to these websites that are "zoomed in" as if it is for the visually impaired, and the amount of information visible on the screen at any given moment is limited and user needs to scroll constantly, or the site scrolls automatically. All very annoying.

I just keep in mind their unwillingness to communicate with the customers and lack of public e-mail for the purpose. True, nowadays you can get in touch via social media (I guess), but if so, they do read pprune too, aren't they?

What amazes me is the lack of surveillance. At present, my son makes a decent amount of money by testing software and websites (not theirs) - doesn't FR test its system at all?

Not only Ryanair, look at Aer Lingus and others...


Charge someone to design a system with errors. Do a survey to see what people think and then charge to fix the errors that shouldn't have been there in the first place the joke being if at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.

Ryanair to sue Google and eDreams - RTÉ News

Ryanair to sue Edreams and Google.

When you look at the edreams website it is very clearly an attempt to pass themselves off as Ryanair with use of Photos and Fonts
