I booked an easyJet flight from Jersey to Liverpool recently, I don't remember if they asked for APIS data but it is stored in their system anyway and when it asks for it I just have to confirm that the details are correct.

Jersey is not EU but I am sure APIS is not required.

Quoting Irelands version of Private Eye satirical but definitely not in same league, not even in same field is funny.

This artile was also alongside the article this Italics is answer made in May..

John Goss, The Pilot That's Making Ryanair Tremble - La Libre May 2013 Article - J

What is your opinion about all those polemics concerning Ryanair "fuelminimum policy" (Mayday emergencies in Spain)? Is this a fact? Have youbeen already facing that kind ofissues? Is Ryanair a safe carrier?


I only comment on flight safety issues through the established and confidential safetyreporting channels and to the aviation safety authority.

@Facelookbovvered. Thank you for the link. Let me quote this phrase:
"Ryanair needs a change at the top, with the operations team continuing to run a tight cost control programme while the marketing team is allowed to change Ryanair’s public profile to a softer, consumer-friendly one."

Nokia is quoted as an example of how the public can switch to newer technology. Blackberry is another but interestingly nobody mentioned how Starbucks reputation and public perception changed almost overnight following revelations about their Corporation tax policies. They weren't breaking any rules however in front of the Commons select Committee they simply didn't put their message over as well as others

Mol isn't daft.He's a shrew businessman who developed Ryanair into a successful airline carrying 80 million a year opening routes that other legacy carriers wouldn't consider. He changed the way the airline business is run and whilst some here don't like certain aspects of their operation, it has worked.

He has stated that there will come a time for him to leave. My personal view is that time will be when his departure will see not see the share price fall as Apple shares did by over 5% when Steve Jobs died but rise as Microsoft shares did by 8% when Steve Ballmer announced he was leaving. Two successful organisations with changes at the top. Whenever the day comes as it eventually must is it will be interesting to see how the markets react and perhaps see if a new head reviews some of the aspects of the Ryanair operation. It appears from a casual look at twitter feeds on Ryanair that with just 11 flights cancelled in August this positive message isn't mentioned anywhere and is overlooked by most of the public who focus instead on comments about the airline they should be concerned about as at the very least thats an indication of market sentiment.

Quietly done too i think all things considered. Sure Mol would rather focus on 2013/14 and not the distraction of court proceedings.

The news: Ryanair increases its investments in Lithuania
Ryanair is expanding its aircraft maintenance activity in Kaunas Airport, with a planned investment of EUR 1.6m, which will allow the servicing of twice as many aircraft.

The company intends to employ 40 additional aviation mechanics.

Ryanair opened its Kaunas airport base in 2010 and MRO facility in 2012 and currently employs almost 50 people. In the beginning of this year Ryanair invested more than EUR 3m in a new aircraft maintenance and repair hangar in Kaunas.
Quoted from: balticbusinessnews.com

Anybody know anything more about this?

Just seen what I think is Ryanair's first ever TV advert? Just broadcast during RTE's Six-One News. Completely undercutting Aer Lingus' fares to the UK & Europe. Also to point out a very cheap advert. But it seems Aer Lingus recent success is forcing them to do this?

The advert is very surprising on peak evening television, stinks of desparation in my view and an overall feeling the overall the Winter season will be tight for all concerned.

I am reminded as to why I now never fly Ryanair, despite being really proud of its achievements as an Irishman, I have pledged I wont fly them again, after what can only be described an awful service flying to Oslo from Stansted recently.

But this is my view, and FR one less frequent flier on their airline....

So advertising on TV is "desperation".....................Why do EI advertise on TV then for years ?

Great thing about when nobody spending money on TV advertising...........very cheap to buy airtime.

You can always fly BA from LHR as they never have any problems

Thanks for the advice Racedo, I certainly could fly BA via LHR but I actually prefer DY to LGW from Oslo. Excellent service and a great price too.

They has done tv before a few times. Not very often but increased advertising was noted during the last conference call.

Now this is interesting:

Ryanair aims to become more user-friendly with a simpler website and co-operation with travel agents, in a cultural revolution for the airline that pioneered low-cost travel with minimal customer service.
The airline plans to announce a website revamp at its AGM in Dublin on Friday, chief executive Michael O’Leary said.
...
Michael O’Leary said he is also prepared to sell tickets via travel agents rather than solely through Ryanair’s own mechanisms, targeting one area where rival EasyJet has made the running by linking with corporate buyers to add business fliers.
