However if you are flexible and bear that in mind and are very happy with the price, I dare say you don't really have anything to lose!
Well actually, might you have something to gain? Many people book a number of flights to the same place (if they have property / relatives / time share), usually on the basis that they only have to take, say, half of them, to be much better off than booking closer to the date and paying more, but knowing you will take the flight.

If you booked 3 flights for S13 and then schedules changed on 2 of them, are you not entitled to a full refund if the times change? Not sure what the window is though to claim such a refund? Anyone got the small print on that?

If the flight times change then you won - now you have a flexible ticket that you can chose to use or not to use up to the departure. If you decide not to travel you can allways get refund. If you decide to travel only then you accept a shedulle change.

I am not sure how Ryanair 'flight credits' work. You can get them instead of a refund. Is it posible to use them on any departure on the same route or only on flights costing the same?

A takeover of EI by FR will spell disaster for Cork and Shannon as the overseas legacy carriers are very unlikely to take up the offer of competing with Ryanair into these airports.

mikkie - difficult to say, but they are likely to be nothing more than a sacrificial pawn in a much bigger game. Aer Arann would not be in complete control of its destiny.

FR routes for MAN summer 2013?

Jamie2K9, Is there any news that you can pass on regarding new or existing routes from MAN for next summer. If so please can you indicate when they are likely to be released. Thanks DomyDom

They are trying to buy out a rival, not defending themselves in a US court. Or is there such a rule for takeovers? For how long? Even if such a rule did exist, if MOL wanted EI that badly, could he not instruct his accountants to set up Ryana"e"r Holdings (LUX) Ltd and have another go?

Stansted owner excludes Ryanair from sale process - RT News

Not sure but I would be suprised if some of the routes that are being dropped in a few weeks come back so there could be a few new ones to replace them.

Ryanair will start flying to Dortmund from March 2013. Six routes, the destinations in Spain, Portugal and Sardinia.

One of the very few airports in the Central/Western Europe served by Wizz, where FR was not present yet.

Edit. The destinations mentioned are: Alghero, Girona, Faro, Malaga, Porto and PMI.

Very disappointing news that Ryanair are not back to Bournemouth now until mid March next year ! , another 6 weeks off makes it a long wait for all customers to use Bournemouth

Any idea when they may actually put anything on sale from March , will have lost a lot of business in the meantime with everyone having to make the treck over to Bristol or Gatwick now

Does anyone know what happened to flight FR656 on 09/10/2012?
According to my friend that should be on it, it's still sitting at Malaga after some delays. However, the usual sources (flightstats, PIK website and FR website) show it as already gone.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

The Takeover Panel rules forbid another attempt within 12 months of a failed/withdrawn bid without approval. Which they would be unlikely to get, as the allowances for it are very specific. So "new bid in January" as claimed is realistically out - even if they got approval, it would take time to get it.

I'm pretty sure there's some Irish Stock Exchange rules on multiple failed bids but I can't find them now.

As Ryanair is an Irish company not UK then UK takeover panel rules are irrelevant and as EU looking at it then UK have no involvement.

Where did I mention the UK? We do, amazingly, have some things with similar names in Ireland.

I know! Hopefully we will get some new routes from MAN. Clearly dithering or whatever is slowing the release of new routes from MAN. Hopefully we will see some new and interesting destinations to consolidate FR's growth at MAN.
