Ryanair also allow a second cabin bag.

Two cabin bags, hats, shopping, 189 passengers and the boarding will be complete carnage particularly if the aircraft isn't equipped with the new Sky interior which does seem better for bags.

Good luck getting that thing turned around in less than an hour.

Lots of cabin baggage
Lots of hold baggage
Pax slow to settle in
Cabins very messy
Generally there can be cultural issues and challenges which can slow things down.
Relevance, Israeli people will quickly learn how FR operate.

30 minutes is cutting it fine but I'm sure there will be a few more minutes at the end of the flight time, not looked at how tight the schedule is.

Ryanair also allow a second cabin bag.
For now, make the most of it.

Am I correct in saying that Ryanair are going to introduce interlining between Ryanair flights? If so, could be a game changer in the LCC market.

It would t be a game changer in the LCC market?

Vueling, Eurowings and Norwegian all do it, no doubt others will too?

Apparently they are going to trial it in Rome, which of all the major bases in their network is the last place I would have picked for a trial.

Regarding the flights to Tel Aviv, have they not been flying to Eilat for a while now? While the passengers are going to include fewer Israelis than Tel Aviv, they will still have become acquainted with Israeli security procedures.

I think this really puts the pressure on easyjet, especially in some of their secondary markets.

Think you fail to see the contrariness of Ryanair in doing it.

Why do it at a base where it will work and every body will know it will work with a pat on the back and huge bonuses for everybody involved.

Pick the most difficult, awkward place with loads of problems and delays and get it done there.

Iron you bugs out there and roll it out from there.

Which part of "you learn more from failure than from a planned easy success" is difficult to understand.

Sadly the US/UK model of shortermism in getting stuff done is the one lauded as the one to follow, funny how really successful companys over 25 years ignore this completely and plan it accordingly.

I just made a quick overview of the currently assigned based aircraft for the upcoming winter season. It is most likely not complete, since the total number of based aircraft is 333. Please let me know if I've missed a base. The data is based on the first full week of November.

1. STN (35)
2. DUB (25)
3. BGY (14)
4. BCN, CRL, MAD (13)
7. SXF (9)
8. CIA (8)
9. FRA, MAN, OPO (7)
12. AGP, BLQ, TFS (6)
15. ATH, EDI, EIN, KRK, PSA (5)
20. ALC, BRU, CGN, EMA, HHN, LBA, LIS, LPA, MXP, VLC, WMI (4)
31. ACE, BHX, BRS, BUD, LPL, LTN, MLA, NRN, NYO, OTP, PMI, PMO, RAK, SOF, SVQ, WRO (3)
47. BFS, BRI, CAG, CTA, FCO, FEZ, GDN, HAM, KUN, NUE, PRG, SKG, SNN, TPS, VNO (2)
62. BRE, BTS, CHQ, FKB, FMM, GLA, GOT, GRO, NAP, ORK, PDL, PFO, PIK, POZ, PSR, SCQ, TSR (1)

Many thanks, sounds plausible as some southern european bases have less based aircrafts in winter compared to summer.

Expected BTS, FKB and NAP to have at least 2 based a/c

GRO was one of their biggest bases and now down to 1.

Missing: Faro + maybe summer only bases: Bournemouth, Brindisi, Corfu, Ibiza, Lamezia Terme, Zadar

Bases in Spain, Portugal, Morocco and Eastern Europe get more aircrafts, less in UK (EMA, LPL, BRS, LTN) and in Germany we see a shifting from smaller airports (NRN, HHN, BRE) to bigger ones (CGN, FRA, HAM)

That did not happen in the winter this time round.
In fact there were more Monarch aircraft on the ground than any other airlines'.
Mostly there for maintenance,but some did not move for days on end!!

No Aircraft are parked up for the winter, they maybe be parked up for a week or three and then rotated back into live fleet but there are no leave for month or 3.
Every airframe will be used during winter just not as intensive as in summer.

Zadar 1
Fez 1 (winter: 2)
Brindisi 1
Alghero 1
Pescara 1
Bournemouth 1

New bases:
Memmingen 1 (winter)
Poznan 1 (winter)

During high summer season (June until end of August) additional aircrafts could be based at ALC, AGP, PMI, FAO or PSA.
Starting September FRA and STN will get new routes so aircrafts from those "sun bases" might allocate to this airports.
I do not see any night stop in MRS like the years before.

Outlook (page 17):
https://investor.ryanair.com/wp-cont...esentation.pdf

427 aircrafts until end of 1st quarter 2018 (31st March 2018) -> +44 aircrafts compared to the current 383. Growth will take place in Spain, Portugal, Morocco + Eastern Europe (against Wizz Air).

Is there any operational reason why FUE is not a base?

DUB should be up at 32 over the summer, 25-26 is just winter size mostly. Would also suspect STN may hit 40 over the summer.
