It wasn't that long ago that MO'L was bitching about increased charges in EDI was it? What are the odds that any expansion at EDI is to step on EZY's toes?
Remember that Edinburgh is under new ownership now. Ryanair and BAA (old Edinburgh owners) have a hateful relationship so even if the new owners haven't done that much since the sale (I don't really know much about what's changed really) then the change of ownership itself is a huge leap forward from Ryanair's point of view. I'm not surprised by this really, I think Edinburgh is going to get some Ryanair growth, and EasyJet may well have contributed to their decision.

I doubt it will be good news for Prestwick on the other hand. I'd love it if they were to get growth but is there not an overlap in the catchment areas? A lot of Ryanair routes in recent years have shifted from Prestwick to Edinburgh, is this just the next round of this or is there or are Ryanair really going to make a go of it and increase them both. They are expanding at East Midlands, Liverpool and Manchester all within the same sort of area so could be the case in Scotland too!

FR in Scotland

It will be interesting to see what transpires re FR at EDI and PIK. My guess is that both will benefit probably more EDI than PIK but any good news at PIK will be welcome at the moment. It may that there will be increased frequencies to the traditional 'bucket and spade' resorts from PIK to try and put the brakes on Jet2 / EZY at GLA whilst at EDI perhaps more European City destinations? Who knows with FR - they never cease to amaze. What I personally would like is the PIK - STN route back as EZY have quietly put their prices up at GLA with no competition and it would also give me an extra hour in bed in the morning!

Any rumours for possible new routes from EDI/PIK? Something for Spain?

I think Edinburgh will benefit more with a growth in Ryanair traffic. When Ryanair reach and agreement and expand from an airport they have recently fallen out with the growth doesn't tend to be small. Look at Manchester for instance, two years ago and barely anything and now their second largest UK base! In terms of the number of new routes, not so sure there will be that many from Edinburgh. Most will probably be bringing back what thay have axed over the last year and some frequency increases. Prestwick (providing the "news" there is good news) may benefit from more new routes (most likely bucket and spade) but I think we all know that Stansted isn't likely to make a return, at least not until APD is axed and I don't think that will be anytime soon!

The announcement of new routes from Prestwick should be 2 new routes (Warsaw Modlin & Rzeszow) and frequency increases on 4 routes (Wroclaw, Palma, Ibiza & Riga). Wroclaw and Riga have been operated year round from Prestwick for several years now. Warsaw is already operating but only started with the winter schedule, so technically it is a new summer route. Rzeszow is the only genuinely new destination.

AirAsia chooses A320 over CSeries

Is Bombardier and Ryanair not a match made in heaven?

Ryanair are looking to make another large order and Boeing are not willing to give a `2 for 1`deal they gave away a decade ago + Airbus are not willing to seriously deal with them...It would seem a deal between Ryanair and Bombardier for a high density 160 seat variant of the CS300 jet would be mutually advantageous.

The advantage for Bombardier would be that it would launch them into being a serious player in this sector of the jet market and for Ryanair, they could win another deal of the decade from a North American manufacturer.
Another benefit for Ryanair would be that it would seriously reduce pilot attrition when the pilot market picks up as there will be only a few operators of the CS300 in Europe...just a thought.

2 observations about the booking section of the FR website

- Captchas seem to have become quite a bit easier to solve
- Pricing policy *seems* to have changed from a "begin with high prices, change to low about 3 months before flight, and then steadily raise prices afterwards" to a policy closer to Easyjet of "start low and gradually increase as flight date approaches"

Item 1 suggests that there was a decrease in conversion of some browsers into buyers leading to the suspicion that Captcha may have just been too much hassle for some potential customers
Item 2 suggests that FR is becoming a more normal airline with regards to revenue management

Any comments ?

Don't say things like that, you know who will be along like after all results to predict doom and gloom.

Companies have to adapt all the time to remain succesful.

An Irish LCC is considering legal action with the aviation herald website, for a report about a too low approach at FMM (reportedly 450 feet height 4NM from runway when landing was aborted, minimum 1000 feet). According to aero.de, quoting the German BFU (the German office for flight accident investigations), it was a visual approach to the airport.

The airline rejects the aviation herald reporting, and threatens legal action.

It looks to me like a work in progress -

Today I made various reservations and the sites seem to be different depending on where you are booking from (i.e. which base).

For example - I booked a DUB - Maastricht and the price I finally paid was the one displayed on page 1 after I had chosen the date. There was NO captcha and the cc pages were MUCH clearer, imo, than before.

OTOH, I booked MRS - BVA and BVA -DUB (as two separate transactions, of course) and was on a much 'older' site design, with a breakdown of the various bits of the fare as I went along. There was also captchas.

So, it depends??

Probably depends on which server in the farm you first connect to.

Nothing will happen to Aer Arann as a result of Ryanair's bid, as it has been clear for some time now that the European Commission will not allow the bid to proceed.

The Commission's concern is with route competition and market power in Dublin, and Ryanair's proposed remedies of route-by-route remedies (offering different routes to different airlines) don't solve the market power issue.

The only remedy Ryanair could offer which would satisfy the Commission would be to offer slots for most or all of the DUB duopoly routes to a single carrier which would then have a big enough network out of DUB to compete effectively with Ryanair. Realistically, that'd be someone like easyJet. Unless FR is prepared to do that (!), they won't get approval.
