We'll all have to learn to travel with just a toothbrush in our pockets and buy everything else when we get there.
False economy ? Probably cheaper to fly with another airline if you need to take a bag.
Given that Ryanair has increased the sector of flights for sunny holidays (Canary Islands, Greece, Mainland Spain etc) targeting people who go away for weeks as opposed of weekends I think they will shoot themselves in the foot when charging 70 for a bag in hold for a return flight in the summer.
A family going away for two weeks will not travel with hand luggage only.
And 70 will make the Ryanair ticket more expensive than the competitors. This summer was the first summer for a long time that I flew Vueling instead of FR....

New route

Bit of a strange one if you ask me...

London-Gatwick (LGW) to Cagliari (CAG), 3x weekly from Nov 6.

Probably because EZY already fly this route from STN?

But FRs strategy is different. They wan to reduce checked in bags to zero to sav weight and fuel (unless its a PR excuse for price rises!). But it does make sense on their short haul short stay routes

It's cause Ryanair are sueing everyone personally who slags them of for 'false' accusations on here! They're covering their asses!

Its RYRs medieval tactics. Someone says something bad about RYR - their legal team get buzzing and similar to the deterrent of hanging a prisoner in public, they simply want individuals to post here so we can all sign and dance the RYR song like happy little campers.

No smoke from this fire.

I could be wrong so correct me if I am, I didn't think Ryanair carried cargo ie mail. So if they're working to rid all hold bags by increasing the price to take hold luggage, surely then the hold (or at least most of it) will be space wasted.

I know they're getting rid of hold luggage to save money on turn around times and baggage handling fees as said in the article, but there must be some other money making idea Ryanair can bring in to make use of the hold when there is no luggage in it.

Agreement between FR and CAG? KUN-CAG is on sale for w2013 as well - never seen winter sunshine routes being operated from here.

Well I didn't expect Michael O'Leary to be boarding my flight back to London this afternoon from Dublin. Not to many airline CEO's would be doing it. He takes a very hands on approach.

If FR don't want any baggage in the hold, then maybe they can put some passengers down there. 189 passagers up above with a view (5 charge) and a few cheap seats without a view in the hold.

I'm assuming you were on a FR flight in which case I beg to differ. I think you'll find most airline CEO's, Chairmen and Board members make a habit of whenever possible flying on their airline but it's rarely anything to do with being "hands on" or a "jolly good chap/chapess". The PR consequences of being seen/photographed travelling on a rival airline can be a tad awkward (especially in MOL's case - can you imagine what the press would do with pictures of him checking in at LHR T5?) and in any event why put money into the coffers of a competitor?

A bit more than that.

A number of posters were quite happy to make unsubstantiated claims without it appears proof and claim stuff which didn't exist.

A poster on here quite happily claimed that he did things against Ryanairs SOPs while an employee and boasted about it because he hated them.
Frankly if that person actually is real, people should welcome their outing, if they willfully ignored their employers SOPS, they put people lives in danger in acting unprofessionally because they appear to have a grudge.

In doing so under the cloak of anonymity they believed they would never be called on it and could just disappear before asked to prove what they say.

An organisation, any organisation has a right to its good name and also a right to defend itself.

WIGGY

when he says MOL was boarding his flight I assume he means that he was taking the boarding cards etc.

Cargo adversely impacts on turnaround times, and when your business model is built on tight turnarounds and high utilisation, you don't go looking for things to risk it.

Unless he owns shares personally it is more likely it is the shareholders of RYR who own a slice of EI.

Baggage hold

Often felt FR could have a lower deck for SLF under a certain size and weight , or even lieing down

A long while back I read that Ryr had approached Stornoway SYY to make a few improvements to the airfield .
It already has a very long run way. In return they promised to bring much needed direct services to london and the Med.
Whats the chance of this being looked at again.
Ryr seem to like out of the way markets.
I bet islanders would jump at the offer of low fairs to the med. London and probably prestwick or edinburgh.
Id bet it would be a money spinner.
Have local island flights operate feeders into syy.
Oban for Example that could have a feeder to Syy.
They could have littlr competition up there.
And im surprised they didnt take a look at Sumburgh. Offer Direct flights to the Netherlands. Flights to london and Manchester and of Course the central belt.
Lots of oil money up there but no direct service

Onyx,

Stop smoking those mushrooms!

They don't even fly from the oil hub ABZ, never mind looking at LSI, SYY or anywhere else in N.Scotland.
