At 2/pax & 75m pax = 150m

Incorrect. A lot of special offer fares don't have the levy included in them.

Cyrano: I apologise profusely. You are quite correct. Some of my best friends are from the emerald isle.

Just published by The Nationalist
Ryanair has secured a High Court order compelling eircom to disclose the identities of two anonymous parties who have been making posts about it on a pilot's website which the airline says is "highly defamatory".

The airline claims the false material that has been posted on the PPRuNe website, known as the Professional Pilots Rumour Network, by two anonymous parties using the pseudonyms 'ASFKAP' and 'Built4Speed' impugnes Ryanair's excellent safety record.

Ryanair sought the orders because it intends to sue the two parties, who investigations undertaken on the airline's behalf show have IP addresses from the eircom pool of subscribers, in order to vindicate its good name.

The orders were granted today by Mr Justice Paul Gilligan.

Under the terms of the orders, eircom must disclose to Ryanair all information, excluding emails, which assists in identifying the parties assigned the IP addresses where the allegedly defamatory posts came from.

The disclosure of the IP address relates only to the relevant time, date and time zones of the allegedly defamatory posts.
Just try to recall whatever critical you may have written in the past...

Hope they leave room for the legal department.

Do we assume that American, the WORLDS LARGEST AIRLINE, will be relocating to Swords then?

Anyone know why the Charleroi-Valladolid and Stansted-Valladolid routes seem to have been dropped effective 4th and 5th March respectively ?
Yes, I can guess that marketing support and the Spanish economy might have been a factor, but a little more insight would be of interest...

On a separate point, I've noticed that the Captcha pieces of text have recently become rather less random. The phrases "unbeatable prices" and "ryanair talk" regularly occur as the solution to the Captchas. Gotta applaud someone for their efforts at consitently staying "on message"

Valladolid

Google Translate translation from Spanish news report:

Ryanair announced today that as of March 3 canceled its routes from Valladolid airport to Brussels and London. This change in programming is produced, according to the airline, the Board's decision not to renew the trade agreement he had with the company. Thus, the basis of Villanubla and aerodromes of Castile and Leon, will be without any international link.

In turn, the company reported that the three domestic routes from Valladolid to Barcelona and Malaga and Lanzarote, which take place in the summer season, will not be affected and will continue to operate normally. However, on the website of the airline can still buy tickets on Monday 4 March to Brussels route for Saturday March 5 for London.

The airline said in a statement criticized the Board since held that "has threatened the jobs of airport employees, the livelihood of the local business community and the tourism industry with its decision not to renew his contract." In turn, said that "now has no choice" to terminate with immediate effect all international flights at the airport of Valladolid.

According to the company, since it began flying to Valladolid in 2003 has carried nearly two million passengers. "Today is a sad day for Valladolid, one day you will have a very negative impact on the local industry and tourism Community. Competitive rates guaranteed no fuel surcharge Ryanair has generated huge revenues to the local economy, in addition to having carried nearly two million passengers since 2003, travelers now lost and go to other airports, "concluded Vice Ryanair Michael Cawley.

With changes in Ryanair flights, the airports of Castile and Leon just now have flights to Barcelona, ​​except the Lion, which will have a weekly service to Tenerife from 29 March to 13 September. For now, they will be added only from April connections to Lanzarote and Malaga.

Ryanair's cuts in Spain continue. The aim is to reduce the traffic due to raising airport charges, over 5 million pax per year less as a result. Among else, all routes to Bilbao and Asturias will be cancelled.

What about the passengers who booked already? Well, Ryanair never really thought about such a "minor issue", as I recall.

Quite correct. If they cancel your flight, they give you a full refund. Even if they re-schedule your flight by more than 3 hours if I remember correctly, you can get a refund.

Is that refund every penny you gave to RYR? Does it include all the add on charges, some optional some not, or is it just the 'ticket' price? Is there any admin deduction? How do you claim the refund? Is it via a high charge premium phone line or post? E-mail seems impossible.

@RAT 5 - In my experience, once Ryanair has advised you by email that your flight has been cancelled, you'll have a number of clickable options in their email, to either re-book elsewhere (if any suitable alternative routes exist), or a straight refund. Which comes through reasonably speedy. Ryanair (anyone really) cannot levy charges for refunding money for a contracted service that it will not be able to deliver.

So the issue for the passengeres is not getting the full Ryanair money back, but to get alternative flights booked to their destination, which may be far more expensive. If you then already have made non-refundable hotel bookings, car rentals, onward transportation cost timed to connect to the original Ryanair flight etc... that's entirely your risk unles you've insured well.

I think it illustrates just how marginal some of these routes are and level of dependancy of subsidy from regional funds.

Travel insurance for this type of cancellation is not easy to come by.

Many website for hotels such as Expedia will often have free cancellation up to 24 hours before the flight, ditto some car hire firms, likewise airport parking with the likes of LGW & LHR of course the very cheapest of deals are buy now no changes or refund, you get what you pay for

This is one of the reasons for the recent growth of all inclusive holidays and why Jet2 have done very well out of it.

Would take the estimated drop in pax with a pinch of salt as they will have 10% increase in weekly flights at REU for the summer.

Does anyone have any info as to whether Ryanair are flying Man>Nic this Summer?

Only operating for those dates.

Ryanair's Nice flight is actually tied in with a property convention.

More sensationalism?

'Ryanair, you just screwed everything': What Dublin Airport flight controller told airline after plane forced jets to abort landing | Mail Online

I'm sure the incoming pilots would have seen the aircraft coming down the runway and gone around anyway.

BUT, one comment interested me:

Ryanair landings are the worst.. I have landed in airports (including Dublin) so hard that the luggage compartments have opened. Once my toddler screamed "We've crashed" and it did indeed seem that way.. BA and other airlines do not land like that.

I've heard this said before but having travelled on Ryanair many times I don't believe it and can't accept that pilot's of one airline would land any differently from those of another. I'd be interested in the opinion of experts.

I would not jump to conclusions here...
Dublin ATC and the airport layout can be confusing, their Irish accent very difficult to understand actually.
On the other hand, a backtrack does need to be approved...

Just some more anti FR bashing, I am not a fan at all of FR, but we have to be objective as PROFESSIONALS, which the general public is not.
