Motivated by a sincere desire to help I quite often advise people how to get from A to B using different airlines, rail connections etc., eagerly promoting the travelling. I do not try to avoid Ryanair, I rather tend to encourage the use of their flights, where economically reasonable. It used to be a pleasant hobby, but yesterday I spent almost three hours convincing a group of people to choose Ryanair. They finally decided to take advantage of my advice, but you know what? For the first time I got enough. A couple of hours took telling everybody it's not as shabby airline as their own-inflicted publicity would suggest. Had to explain that there are no standing places, no WC fees, no mounting unpredicted taxes and fees, yet getting them believe has been very tough. I cannot rule out that people in Finland take more seriously than others some typical publicity stunts produced by MOL's team, but I do notice the change of attitudes over the years to the detriment of FR. Even if true that "no publicity is bad publicity", it's pretty hard to convert the accumulated bad publicity into good - and that's what I can observe nowadays.

Need a break now.

Wizz Air to Warsaw Chopin (WAW) till October 26, how about Ryanair

From Wizz Air website:
Please be informed that all Wizz Air Warsaw flights will operate to/from Warsaw Chopin airport (WAW) until 26 October.

Ryanair still no change, so will be operating to WAW until June 30. Wonder whether they have to delay this as well.

Very old News:
Ryanair and Wizz Air forced to delay Modlin service resumption again - ch-aviation.ch

Wizz said in Early March they'll extend their stay at WAW until 26 October, but could come back earlier if the runway work is done earlier as it was scheduled to finish in late June. However it's already believed to be a few weeks behind schedule due to the extended winter weather.

Ryanair?s O?Leary ?still committed? to developing USA service - Independent.ie

Not included in that article but flights will be from Europe and not Ireland as he says the market is "to small" for a loco service.

It seems that the Association of Valenican Housewives have had their Court case against sexism by Ryanair thrown out of court - Again. Didn't they pull exactly the same trick last year ?

going to cheltenham this year on friday 15th March I landed in birmingham airport around 7.15am, I spoke with a bus driver ouitside the terminal who was waiting on a Ryanair flight from Dublin, he told me the flight was diverted to Liverpool, O Leary brought the passengers to Aintree instead of Cheltenham for the Gold Cup as he would quip himself, does anyone know why such as short flight was diverted that day causing a long day for the passengers.

New Routes:Köln-Bonn to TenerifeMemmingen to Tenerife.In an interview with the Frankfurt Allgemeine MOL said that FR will fly to 5-6 "new" airports in Germany. FR will leave Berlin due to high charges. Currently in talks with 20 German airports."New" airports could be "old" ones, Rostock, Friedrichshafen, Erfurt, Altenburg or Zweibrücken. I reckon Dresden and Kassel will be new.

I can't say I expected that one but still good to see.

I'm not sure what you mean about Nuremberg, it was on the route map and flights bookable when I just checked, perhaps a glitch earlier??

I just heard crew on a recent FR flight from TFS talking about some routes and they said that NOC is going seasonal. Wasn't aware it didn't operate last winter so now I don't know what they ment by seasonal.

I repost this

Alicante-Haugesund, round trip, going on 11th June, back 29th June, 201 €.
There is nothing to see in Haugesund, you would like to go to Bergen, Voss, Flåm, so then you need Kystbussen to go to Bergen 65€ round trip, 3 hours trip for 140 km. for 100€ more you fly more comfortable and respected with other carriers straight to Bergen, for 100 bucks I don't change. I don't understand why people still uses "****yair", I used it 2 times, and 1 more my wife, we promised not to fly with them anymore, and of course, being a responsible customers not buying from slavers.
One more thing, this airline, gets millions in tax money from provinces and communities around Europe, just to fly to remote airports, and make those airports with a little of activity, like many ghost airports, monuments of corruption in Spain.
So,
First, we are treated as costumers like idiots.
Second, they lower prices, on people's back, the workers suffer too much to keep the airline profitable, for who??, only for share holders.
Third, the government uses the money intended for social investment, to make a private company profitable.
As a consumer, tax payer, and generally speaking "citizen", I don't see the reason to buy a ticket from this bunch of pirates.

If you don't like Ryanair, then don't fly with them. Don't rake up all the excuses you can why you think they shouldn't even exist.

I fly with Ryanair at least twice a year and never had a problem. Flying with them from EMA - FAO this summer because:
a) they are reliable in terms of punctuality
b) flying from a local airport (not big/near major city, but LOCAL)
c) great departure time (09:30am, return home 15:50)
d) they had the best price because we don't see the need to take a 20kg bag each

I don't want or expect anything other than that for a 2 and a half hour flight across Europe. The main reason why people don't like Ryanair is because they expect the service of BA but with a Ryanair price!
