I think we could see FR really stepping up at LGW in the coming months / years ahead.

Not sure if a base would be feasible but they have so many potential network points over Europe now they could link up with LGW.

Every opportunity there is to get slots, FR will be a serious contender for sure.

For next winter it looks like:

DUB 8x daily (56 weekly)
BFS 5x daily (35 weekly)
SNN 6x weekly
ALC 6x weekly
KUN 3x weekly
SVQ 3x weekly

116 weekly flights.
I think LGW-SVQ route has been cancelled

Surely EDI-BOD is at best a reopening of an old route?

Anyone know what's happened to the MAN-SXF route? Checked yesterday for flights out on 07/12/16 and return on 10/12/16 and the price was just under £52. Checked this morning and there's no flights at all on any dates.

Pilots in Bremen and Hahn have been asked to express interest in another base.
Based aircrafts will be 2 for Bremen and 5 for Hahn. HHN was their first and for long time biggest base in Germany. Now SXF, CGN and HAM might be more important.

When are they launching Hahn and Weeze flights for next winter? Strange they launched CGN, CGN or HAM but still waiting for other bases...

To those who have asked about planning their future career and family life: 10 years ago HHN had 8-10 a/c and was forecast to go to 20. There was talk of RYR contributing to a new terminal to handle the growth. There was talk about HHN becoming a central european training hub, etc. etc. Now your saying it is going down to 5 a/c. A very cloudy crystal ball hangs over Germany. Was there not a 'toys from pram' saga a few years ago in reaction to German airport taxes? There was a severe threat to cut back on German routes. What is the situation now? Did HHN achieve its new terminal? Are there any internal De. flights? I know the trains are hefty competition.

HHN passenger experience is also deteriorating. Buses became a lot less frequent (70 min wait after landing - ouch). Good restaurants are gone - replaced by McDonalds.

Is that actually a decrease? I thought 2 and 5 is what they had this winter.

Were there ever "good restaurants" in HHN?

Looks like Vilnius is also set to become a base.

So that would be Bucharest, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Sofia and Vilnius as new bases from October, not to mention the vast increases elsewhere!

I don't think it's a cloudy crystal ball, just a shift in strategy. The same shift that we have been in other European markets. Three years ago, FR didn't fly to main airports such as CGN, HAM, NUE, etc.

HHN didn't get a new terminal but the existing one was expanded quite significantly (at this stage, half of that could probably be closed). There was talk of a whole new terminal (and some nice graphics put out by the company in charge of masterplan) but don't recall FR saying they would contribute to pay for it.

But like I asked; who, crew, engineers, airports, hotels, baggage staff, etc. etc. would bank their future on a RYR plan? 10 years ago the supposed future was sucking in local investment; 20 a/c. Now what?
Remember the pilot asking which was a better future; a legacy carrier or a LoCo. Remember all the fuss that RYR makes about how 1 a/c = so many jobs. Remember their boast about how opening a base with 3 a/c brings >1000 jobs. So what do we hear about how many jobs are in the bin due to a base being reduced. Nothing. It really is roulette.

How is that different from most jobs in the real world?
One may have a very secure job in a big organisation: moved to that country for the job, wife found something too, house bought, kids in school, friends and a social life. A few years later, the function is moved to another country. The choice is move or leave the organisation. It hasn't happened to me yet but it is happening to colleagues.

Pilots in HHN and BRE are being offered the chance to express an interest in other bases.

"Ireland-based low-cost carrier (LCC) Ryanair has reached an “agreement in principle” with LCC Norwegian and Portuguese carrier TAP Portugal on supplying them with feeder passengers for long-haul flights, CEO Michael O’Leary said Feb. 24."

Firstly, an unfortunate choice of words:
Secondly: RYR has no free lunch.

HHN was up to 10 some years ago and 6 last summer; BRE had 3 last summer
Compared winter 2015/2016 to summer 2016 it is not a decrease; compared to the past it is.

NRN will stay at 6. Seems to be more stable base althought competition from CGN, EIN, maybe Brussels as well as AMS nowadays.

FR took the delivery of 7 new aircrafts within 2 weeks:
EI-FOK on 18/02
EI-FOL on 21/02
EI-FOM on 22/02
EI-FON on 24/02
EI-FOP on 25/02
EI-FOO on 26/02
EI-FOR on 29/02
