Canaries Winter 2013/14

Hi all,
Any idea when to expect FR flights for Winter 2013/14 to be on sale for ACE/LPA (or TFS at a push).

No Santander base

MOL was in Santader on Tuesday, which was just a disappointing as the Maastricht press conference. Just pax statistics and routes already announced. It will be 17 routes this summer and MOL rejected all the rumours on a Santander base.

Didnt take FR long to move into this old and well established EZY territory, since they have transferred their flight down to Gatwick.

From The Telegraph's travel news concerning Ryanair's new [play-as-you-book] Play & Win game.
Ryanair has unveiled a new ploy for parting travellers with their cash – a game offering passengers the chance to win back the cost of their flights.

Terms and conditions state that Ryanair guarantees at least three winners each week – and they will be informed “on the flight confirmation page”. Winners’ payments will be refunded within 10 weeks of the booking.

A spokesman was unable to confirm how many had taken part so far, or what the odds of being successful are, but he did supply details of the first winner: James McLaughlin from County Donegal, who he said won back his €676 booking.
Congratulations! Fortunately for Ryanair, their tickets are very cheap - or are they?

ACI research confirms up to 1,000 ‘on-site’ jobs.....

Or to quote in full (but with my capitals) "ACI research confirms UP TO 1,000 ‘on-site’ jobs are sustained at international airports for every 1m passengers ."


This drivel was printed in the post at the bottom of the previous page, taken presumably direct from a Ryanair press release.

Do people actually get paid real money for writing guff like this?

Is it produced, I wonder, by the same tyro who claims that a 3% price reduction qualifies under the Advertising Standards Code as "UP TO 50% off" ?

You do know who ACI is ?

Airports Council International is the only global trade representative of the world’s airports. Established in 1991, ACI represents airports interests with Governments and international organizations such as ICAO, develops standards, policies and recommended practices for airports, and provides information and training opportunities to raise standards around the world. This section provides you with information on the structure and background of ACI.

Wrong capitals !!!

It's not ACI for whom I added the caps (as they were used in the original Ryanair press release) but rather the weasel words "UP TO" which wholly vitiate the digits which follow.

Does anybody know about Ryanair opening a new base in Lisbon?A few days ago, a Ryanair plane came over with someone from the board I guess but I´m not sure what was that for.

How long have FR been charging £30 per sector for an infant to travel? I have a flight booked for the summer and was charged £20 approx in local currency, booked last year.
Is this a sly increase or was it publicly advertised?

On some flights for example STN to DUB the infant pays more than the adult if their is free online check-in. This cannot be right can it??? £60 return for an infant is a rip off imo.

£60 rnt for an infant is expensive, why not try another airline? Vote with your feet.

BA and VS charge infants 10% off the adult fare, so don't really think FR's charge is that unreasonable.

Dear oh dear

Until you can disprove that the Global Association for Airports worldwide is wrong then will believe their words.

Ryanair are quite within their rights to quote from them.

It has been that way for least 10 years, .

Would you be asking the question if you were paying £150 for the adult and £60 for the infant ?

Infant fare is the same irrespective of whether there is a promotional fare.

Disprove they are wrong ?

Dear oh dear oh dear, indeed.

OK,maybe the bigwigs of ACI did originally write that every 1m passengers creates "UP TO" a certain number of jobs but it is still meaningless gibberish from a statistical point of view.

Akin to claims that a 3% fare reduction can be described as "UP TO 50% reduction."

You're not even joking are you? It can be argued whether its valid for Ryanair to quote it but its actually "from a statistical point of view" that this figure has been arrived at!

Aside from another whinge because you don't like Ryanair, I think you need to take up the issue with ACI if you dislike the figures

ACI have stated something and that has been quoted and credited with it.

Here is a number of airports with jobs per million passengers, doesn't look the 1000 figure is that much off the mark.

LHR - 67 million Pax, 76,000 direct jobs, 166,000 indirect
LGW - 32 Million Pax, 28,000 direct, unknown indirect but given hotels and guest house employ 4,000 around Gatwwick its probably double that
MAN - 19 Million passengers, 19,000 directly employed and 42,500 sustained
SNN- 1.6 Million pax, 2000 employed, plus 500 direct offsite, no numbers on sustained
CDG - 61 million Pax, 87,000 directly employed

This 1000 jobs per 1m pax is a fallacy, there are plenty of airports in this country with less than 1000people working direct/indirect at an airport with more than a 1m pax. It's the usual propangda spouted by RYR to say how wonderful they are in supporting local economies, whilst employing cheaper Eastern European trolley dollies.

Joking?

Anything but!

The joker is the person who seized on a meaningless non-statistic and then wheeled it out as holy writ.(For exactly the spurious PR purposes mentioned in the last post.)

Step forward........
