Such an important tone Sir. I'm sorry to have taken some of your time.

Again, if you go back and read it, it is nothing to do with Captcha. It is a compatibility issue with Chrome and apparently Safari which account for about half the worlds internet browsers. It is about Ryanair having a really, really crappy website which delivers a nasty user experience and is now actually turning customers away. All in the name of cost savings no doubt?
You are the one adopting a high handed tone. I merely pointed out in my reply that MOL's appearance on Hardtalk was discussed when it came on air, and secondly that the Captcha issue was also discussed at length when they introduced it.

You then asked me to re-read what you said. I had already made it perfectly clear in my reply that Captcha and broswer compatibility were separate issues.

Ryanair's website has been well documented, and discussed at length by numerous so-called usability experts who point out what a terrible site it is to navigate, and just how horrible it looks.

Well let me let you into a little secret which the twitterati won't tell you - crap web design works! It is no different to those horrible sales letters with lots of red text and bolding - they work.

I wish they didn't. I wish Ryanair's website was easier to use. I still hate Captchas. But guess what - when they are selling me a flight for 10, I think I can tolerate all of this junk, just like I do on the flight.

If you don't like it, you can always go and book with Easyjet - they have (imho) a much nicer website, (imho) nicer planes and a nicer inflight experience.

But FR also have a base at BHX, U2 don't.

There isnt much released from BCN yet. STN is on sale now only because of the intense compitation starting in March.

They will be confirming slots at BCN but most routes should be out over the.next 4-6 weeks.

Don't FR already operate something like 25 routes to Krakow from other bases? Will we see more?

FR want 10 million over 5 years to increase the current routes to 40 and base aircraft there. The airport won't agree as they can't gaurantee changes in marketing support. At least one airport operator has some sense unlike most other ones FR operate in Europe.

Ten million Polish money, you mean? If so, Krakow just granted 2 million PLN for the next year. Looks very likely to realize.

EMA ... 38 routes ... Over 2.3 million passengers

LPL ... 39 routes ... Over 2.1 million passengers

MAN ... 34 routes ... Over 2.4 million passengers

Seems a bit inconsistent. Must be more flights from MAN.

For one the most supposed IT active companies in the business, 99.99%, you can still only contact Customer Service via post. Now there's a disincentive. The other Krypton Factor Egg-Heads challenge is to find out the phone number of the reception desk at DUB HQ. Answers on a post card to PPRuNe.

It's not easy (groan) to get in touch with Ryanair because all their staff have to provide their own mobiles - and they can't recharge them at work...

FR from MAN summer 2013

Have FR loaded all flights for summer 2013 from MAN? Can't find RIX-MAN yet, do FR have issues with RIX at the moment?

No routes for DSA announced as yet. It had two this summer. What are the likelyhood of routes being announced? Seeing as Ryanair have had a presence at DSA since it first opened, it would be a shame to lose them completely.

As far as I know it will be 7 aircraft for East Midlands, 6 for Liverpool and 5 for Manchester in 2013. East Midlands and Liverpool do not have a great deal more flights other than those operated by their own based aircraft, (although East Midlands has seen less of this recently). The routes from Manchester on average operate at a much higher frequency and are a large number of services operated by aircraft based elsewhere (effectively making it a similar size to something like an 8 aircraft base with no flights by aircraft based elswhere). Manchester also serves a lot of city routes like Brussels, Dublin, Milan and Oslo which fly at least daily other than the 3 or 4 flights per week you get on most routes from East Midlands and Liverpool.
