Daa

Fair point but given all airlines have deals on offer for new routes and current route capacity increases FR must have some scope for a deal , no matter what other carriers think, I am sure both sides playing a guarded hand
At moment.
EK want to increase , EI have increased and a lot more to come S14
And EIR too, add in Tk , even HOP !! Daa are growing again
Gives them a little comfort at the table , but FR can deliver volume
From places they haven't or don't currently serve...

My guess would be that the problem is that the DAA probably can't do a deal with FR because they'd be upsetting those wearing green!!
Nothing to do with deals as they are open to all carriers and daa don't do special treatment for carriers. As it is the majority of carriers at DUB are on discounts apart from Ryanair who don't use them and cut traffic.

FR and the daa did come close to a deal but FR rejected it.

In 2014 around 15 aircraft will be leaving the fleet with no new ones coming so aircraft will go where they can get good deals and of course millions in marketing support.

A decision on the B737 Max is due by end of September.

In various posts on the PPRuNe website, under a pseudonym "Ezy", I have made a number of claims about Ryanair.....
Strange that the post of apology by 'Ezy' above is listed as a first post.

I'm guessing he was forced to delete all his other posts.

Ryanair will increase its baggage charges

From todays Mail

Ryanair chief vows to price out passengers with hold baggage (and now he's raising fees by 20 per bag just in time for summer)

Ezy, for that you must say three Hail Mary's. (Father Ted).

Baggage fees don't bother me but what does is how much Ryanair appear to be spending on legal fees these days.

All non domestic routes from Santiago de Compostela look like they are being dropped later this year - searching around the web suggests this is because the local Govt is no longer prepared to pay the marketing fees that Ryanair favours.

Is it just a simple "Govt cannot afford it" issue, or is there something deeper ?

Ryanair Winter Schedule 2013-14

Does anyone know when Ryanair Winter Schedules for 2013-14 will be completely finalised. I notice that many routes have been uploaded, but one that I am interested in Stansted-Ancona is showing no flights after 5 November - is it too early to conclude this route isn't running over the winter?

Probably same as they always did just a bit more focused.

Not going to court although one or two on here claimed they wanted to.

Hope this is the right place to ask but can anyone tell me how easy it is to get from Paris Beauvais to Disneyland Paris? Do you need to go into the city first or can you go easily enough from Beauvais?
Also how much time should one allow to get from the centre of Paris to beauvais for a flight check in, and whats the best way to get there?

Quoth Sober Lark:

Even though it is more expensive for a 15 kg bag to travel in the hold than a 90 kg person to travel in the cabin?

One genuine queston I do have for people who manage to travel without hold luggage: what do you do about razaors, sun cream and other cabin-banned items? Do you just go without them for the duration of your holiday?

Edit: not that I will fly with Ryanair but this has puzzled me for years.

Astonishingly enough they sell all of these items in shops at Ryanair destinations

There are no restrictions for razors (Bic or Gillette plastic 'safety' type) and the same for sun cream - that must be in a sealed plastic bag along with toothpaste / liquids etc.

I'd love to know what countries you visit. Do they not have shops/supermarkets?

Stevek - I think we may find that El Bunto has never flown before. In fact he may never have been outside his own country / province !

Danger about supposed death threat

Some statisticians computed that : which is the probability to be killed in these situations where we say "it is a wonder that I am still alive" : only 1/30.
So when 30 crews had blocked pitots and only one crashed, the 30 others could be logicaly being crashes but it just was not the day ... In consequence it does not mean the SOP were safe.

Rhodamine is the red colorant in the lipstick. It is a powerful explosive. Are women with make up and red lips to be classified as suiciding terrorists ?

60/60 for a checked bag ?
I was looking to book a couple of days away but when it came to paying this for a bag I had to consider if the clothes Id be putting in the bag were even worth sixty quid.
Its almost come to the point where its worth considering travelling out in one set of clothes, then buying something cheap to wear when you get there, then throwing them away and travelling back in the original clothes you travelled out in.
We'll all have to learn to travel with just a toothbrush in our pockets and buy everything else when we get there.

What is with all of these 'apology' posts all of a sudden?

Almost exactly the same format/words but different posters? Seems very odd.

False economy ? Probably cheaper to fly with another airline if you need to take a bag.
