Survey undertaken by RYR Pilot Group using Simply Voting.com

How come a person who isn't a pilot and isn't even employed by Ryanair could have participated in such a survey?

You can't, it's secure, private process only available to registered pilots through RPG website.

When I look at what where the plans of Ryanair in the first posts of this thread and compare this to what the situation looks like in these statistics about passenger airlines I would say there's still something to do. Should be the goal to keep up with Lufthansa in my opinion.

Clue not required. Members of RPG are verified Ryanair pilots with Ryanair crew codes, required as part of the sign up process. Each base has RPG reps which can and will vouch if necessary for any unknown. Membership runs at 60% plus. Go figure. A lot of work is done at base level by RPG pilots. It's not as Ryanair would like you to believe, a union front. The demand from Ryanair pilots opened this path and the route to this point has been the power of Ryanair pilots.

As a previous poster said, any Ryanair pilot who takes up a role in RPG will open themselves up to the company. We all used to wear RPG lanyards until a memo stated disciplinary action would follow for any uniform violation. Base captains then told pilots the RPG lanyard must be removed or face the consequences. As for RPG we are extremely lucky to be able to vote and appoint such top council members with top experience.

Basically RPG is Ryanair pilots. By Attacking RPG Ryanair are attacking their own staff. The very own staff who are having their homes raided due to a bizarre employment model. The same staff who are having to gel together and create a group to pay for legal representation against a state. Ryanair pilots realised along time ago, we are on our own if we don't join together and protect our own profession and at least get a legal contract in the country we are based.

As a passenger I would rather fly on time with a sick pilot than have my flight deleyed or canceled. Because I think that it is still safer than any additional ground transportation.

So you would quite happily accept the greatly increased risk of an incident threatening your safety and possibly your life through enforced presenteeism just so as to satisfy your ignorance. You are welcome to it pal, though most pilots would see sense and save your neck (and your ignorance).

Sadly sums up the ignorance surrounding aviation today. After all, it's routine, int'it? What is there to it? It's dead simple, yeah? You just hop on, turn the key and go off, yeah? Just like getting on the Number 31 Bus to go and visit Granny, yeah? I mean, there's nothing to it, is there? It's dead simple, yeah, 'cos I've flown the B737 in FS2004 and its dead easy, yeah?

Haven't seen the programme but I'm interested as I knew a couple of lads who went to work for FR, they seemed to be enjoying it though.

alm1 - I think that comment is probably the most absurd thing I have read on this forum. Are you sure you didn't mean to post in the Friday Jokes section

UK revenue maybe.

Article in newspaper on Sunday suggested that UK Income Tax people are looking at how some of the pilot companies are set up.

Their concern seems to mirror other Tax Authorities concerns regarding where you work and where you pay tax.

Ryanair and c4

Having watched the entire programme I thought is was poorly researched, and a bit sensationalised. The use of a Spanish controller, whose English was average (but better than my Spanish) was problematic considering the trouble the Spanish controllers have caused with their work to rule. However FR are allegedly issuing defamation proceeding against C4. Again the is no such thing as bad publicity, unless there is a pile of bits somewhere which to date FR has avoided.

Scandalous, lets hope the pilots react with more resolve than they did when Ryanair disposed of Martin Duffy and Jim Duggan all those years ago

An isolated shower passed through with a heavy core.

FR4054 was the only only divert and he went to BHX.

Nobody 'held off' and the 4054 was not subject to any holding or delaying vectors but the 4054 was unlucky with his timing (and his fuel presumably) and came onto finals just as the core drifted to sit right on the final approach.

He hit the weather, decided he couldnt get it down safely and elected to proceed straight ahead and handover direct to BHX App. and divert into there rather than wait.

Passengers were coached to EMA and the A/C then positioned into EMA about 45 minutes later.

Snoop

They are self-employed
1. A French self-employed pilot cannot apply to CRPN (Retirement and accident) mandatory for airline pilots.

That hate against pilots unions is paranoiac megalomania.

These "bizarre" rules show ignorance of the Law from Managers and Direction

2. Do the passengers pay their transport contract (the ticket) to the pilots??!?!?

@alm1
Pilots are not allowed to fly if they know their health is not conform to Class I requirements.
