What happened to Ryanair's UK AOC, they got it when they took over Buzz from KLM. I'm guessing they didn't keep it.

Be warned, in the article the CFO uses interesting language...

"Ryanair’s chief financial officer, Neil Sorahan, said the airline could review its second bag allowance, introduced in late 2013, as passengers were starting to “take the pXXX” ( my edit.)

He said: “I’ve seen two-year-olds wheeling a bag up to the plane as people try to take advantage.”

I found that one of the funniest things I've read in years!
Asked by a reporter if passengers were “taking the piss”, Sorahan said: “Some are... The vast majority of people play by the rules but some don’t. Unfortunately some bring massive backpacks and things that don’t fit under the seat. We’ve been a little bit lax or nice – we are victims of our own niceness.”
Ah, my heart bleeds. It seems the poor things have only just worked out that, if you make a set of rules - others will work out how to bypass them. It's how hospitals can 'pass' all their tests and still treat patients badly and let people lie on trolleys in a corridor all night.

Humans always want more product for less money, just as suppliers (RYR) want more money for less product. Nothing new under the sun.

While they're revising the rules, they should also revise the new seating logic which pisses passengers off by purposely seating them apart

Neil Sorahan, said the airline could review its second bag allowance,

One real problem that pxxx's pax off is where airlines from the same airport have different hand baggage policies. It real is an absurd situation. I fly from an airport where various operators have the same a/c; i.e.the seats & hat-bins are similar size. Some allow 1 bag + computer + overcoat or lady's handbag. Some, even the LoCo member of the major parent, allow only 1 bag to include everything including computer & duty-free. Others allow 1 cabin bag + duty free. Some have 7kgs, 10kgs, 12kgs, unlimited. Some have 35x25x55, 45x35x55, 25x20x50. It is an absolute joke and unacceptable. Baggage shops sell 'cabin allowed luggage.' No it's not it depends on who you fly with. I've seen some ridiculous and outrageous situations at the gate with hand baggage. Customer service, common sense etc. out of the window. The airlines do not help themselves never mind their profit paying customers.

There seems to be a convergence going on. Most seem not able to cope with the one overhead bag, one under the seat bag... Both easy and Wizz have gone down the route of the first onboard the aircraft will get the space in the locker, wizz with Prioirty Boarding, and easy with Speedy boarding.

Maybe this should be the way its policed at Ryanair - with only the priority boarders allowed to take two pieces.

That is going to test the cabin crews' patience and personal skills to the max. Fast turn rounds will be pure myth.

They have adjusted turnarounds to 50 or 60 minutes now, surly it's going to be enough?

New routes

Hello, anyone know anything on the grapevine about any potential new routes being launched from belfast? Surely there's bound to be something or else they will just park all these new aircraft in a corner somewhere

Which part of BREXIT do you not get ?

Belfast Airports will be affected by Brexit and why would Ryanair launch routes that it has to stop.

Thanks for that really patronising and useless response.

It seems that Ryanair may no longer be operating their quiet flights policy in the early mornings/late evenings.

I was on BVA-DUB on Monday night after 10:00pm and there was the usual slurry of promotional announcements. I asked a crew member about it and he told me that the policy was no longer in place.

But nice yellow spongy ear plugs are for sale at €5 a pair. Never miss an opportunity.

Waldo1....Apologies if you took offence...none intended BTW..How do you wish me to rephrase or reword it?...the end result/answer will be the same I guess tho regarding your reasoning "that there is bound to be something" does not as I state fit within the RYR culture & planning process in the great game..Nought against any region of course but many an airport management woulda relied on that type of thinking with RYR in times past & have been found out...you may well receive but bound to...NO.
