2 based aircraft to fly routes to the sun (which would be cheaper to operate with aircraft based in Spain/Portugal) seems a bit odd, but I guess we will find out in a few hours.

Frankfurt to Alicante / Malaga / Mallorca in Spain and to Faro in Portugal bookable of website.

Sensible getting in sun routes first to iron out issues before city parings.

Those routes don't hurt LH so much and for FRA it's a good option once AB will pull out and if issues with X3 should continue.

These are the test routes, iron out all the issues on routes where time is not really that key.......... getting towel on sun lounger at 1pm or 2pm really not important (stereotype much), then when know all that introduce some more key routes to Rome / Madrid / Lisbon etc

Isn't NWI simply too near STN? It is quicker to get to STN by road from almost all of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, so that only leaves Norfolk and Norwich for NWI - and since the A11 was finished STN isn't too bad from a lot of Norfolk either.

Welcome to Ryanair!

Buoyant set of results.

Number of big discounted seat sales recently suggest to me that demand is soft and likely to continue, particularly from the UK.

The new aircraft appearing can only mean more and more new routes to be opened up.

Except that they have severely cut back their UK predictions. Most of the growth could be accommodated in the new, slightly larger a/c.

MOL on Radio 4 this morning said they had planned 12% growth for the UK next year but now expect it to be 5% due to Brexit uncertainties, falling pound etc and had now switch this growth to Germany and Italy

Mentioned only that demand is soft from UK, which is what all operators are saying.

Growth next year will be across the other 32 Countrys they fly from.

However, the UK's vote to leave the EU meant that Ryanair had reduced its planned UK growth in 2017 from 12% to about 5%.

Ryanair Dublin baggage delay

Last Sunday night PAX arriving on Ryanair Copenhagen flight had a 50 minute delay in Dublin's baggage retrieval area before they arrived.
At 9.30pm on a Sunday night it should be possible to provide a speedier baggage retrieval service.
Also, despite my daughter and Wife sitting in row 3 their cabin bags taken off them at Copenhagen gate!

Didn't realise that your seat number determines whether you get to keep bag on not........
Don't believe they paid for it and were asked to do it.

I have been asked on occasions to do it but explaining that have 2 laptops and camera equipment (genuinely) the ground staff said ok we understand and left it at that.

Ah yes, I saw it now.

Advertising a €9.99 fare is now not exactly honest if you happen to be travelling with a child.

I have done dozens of Ryanair flights with family and never been assigned a seat apart at online checkin. Always got some combination of ABC-D or C-DEF without paying anything additional.

Now under the new system, if all of us want to sit close together, it's a minimum of an extra GBP 16 per return (2 adult seat reservation per direction). Over 25 returns a year, that's GBP 400 for Ryanair. If you happen to make a very late booking when all the standard seats are gone, even your children will be paying.

On what basis ?
Years ago when they had V cheap fares but kids paid 10 just booked kids as adults.
Never had an issue with that, notice nothing in the T&Cs regarding it. Can't book an adult as a child, understandably, nothing to stop booking child as an adult.

I have done dozens of Ryanair flights with family and never been assigned a seat apart at online checkin. Always got some combination of ABC-D or C-DEF without paying anything additional.
Still can book as adults.............. if not sitting together then it is at your risk.

Now under the new system, if all of us want to sit close together, it's a minimum of an extra GBP 16 per return (2 adult seat reservation per direction). Over 25 returns a year, that's GBP 400 for Ryanair. If you happen to make a very late booking when all the standard seats are gone, even your children will be paying.
Free to take your chances at checkin. So should Ryanair hold standard seats just in case someone makes a late booking for a family ?
