From a passenger point of view I'm not seeing the value of this twit stunt. Obviously Ryanair set it up for journalists and journalists set it up for Ryanair.

Ryanair Pilot Group Press conference

Just saw the Ryanair Pilot Group (RPG) announced they have a press conference coming up soon in Bruxelles.

I believe this is great news for pilots in general and Ryanair pilots in particular and also worthy of some attention here on PPrune

Great news because? Not being difficult, just clarify why. Assuming you're not just another RA basher. They're so unsafe, they're in league with the devil.

To be clear, I don't like the employment T&Cs that RA use. The laws need to be changed IMO. And it's not just airlines that take advantage of their employees in this way (zero hour contracts).

Not a problem PPRNkof. It´s great news because the RPG have made tremendous progress so far and that effort is worthy of attention. People seem to be moving mountains in the background for the benefit of others and it would be wrong not to acknowledge that, and there is no better way to do that then here on PPRune.

RPG?

How come there is no thread about the Ryanair Pilots Group's upcoming press conference? Surely, Shirley, this is newsworthy?

Ryanair Announces Customer Service Improvements Over Next 6 Months

1. The “Recaptcha” security code will be removed from the Ryanair.com website for individual bookings next week (on 1 Nov next).

2. From 1 Nov, customers who book directly on the Ryanair.com website (i.e. not via travel agents or screenscrapers) will be given a 24 hour grace period from the time of their original booking, to correct any minor errors (i.e. spelling, names, routings) made in their original booking.
3. From 1 Nov, Ryanair will operate “quiet flights”, prior to 8am in the mornings and after 9pm in the evenings. During these quiet flight periods no PA’s will be made on board other than required safety announcements. Ryanair will also dim the lights during these quiet flights so that any customers who wish to snooze, can comfortably do so.
4. From 1 Dec, Ryanair will allow passengers to bring a 2nd small carry-on bag (small ladies handbag or small airport shopping bag) no bigger than 35 x 20 x 20 cms which will allow a bottle of wine or equivalent to be carried.

5. From 1 Dec, Ryanair’s boarding card reissue fee will be cut from €70/£70 to €15/£15 for customers who have already checked in online. Customers who fail to check-in online will continue to pay a €70 airport check-in fee.

6. From 1 Jan, Ryanair’s standard airport bag fees will be cut from €60/£60 to €30/£30 at the bag drop desk, and from €60/£60 to €50/£50 at the boarding gate, bringing them into line with competitor airline standard airport bag fees

Reasonable and no doubt will annoy Daily Mail as thats at least 10 stories a year gone

RPG press conference coverage being deleted?

Why is mention of the upcoming RPG press conference being deleted? Any mention of RPG and the thread is gone.

The court was told Ryanair had engaged a law firm in Los Angeles to file libel proceedings against a number of defendants in the Los Angeles Superior Court. It had also issued proceedings against Internet Brands in California, the registered owner of a website used by pilots, and issued subpoenas against Yahoo, Microsoft and Google in pursuit of information.
Probably to do with this!!

Best move ever by RyanAir IMHO. Shame it's not the other way around though (9am to 8pm). Great move!

I hope improving the website involves making all the extras "opt in" rather than "opt out", as that annoys me so much I don't even bother checking with it when flying, I just go straight to their competitor's sites.

All in all the above improvements are very very welcome and may tempt me to use them again in the future

Also having the final full price including taxes quoted at the start of the process like Norwegian do would be nice.
Well, it must be quite some while since you booked with FR or else you're reading too much of the Daily Mail . The full price including taxes is what I get every time I book.

Please excuse me for viewing this with a healthy dose of cynicism as another of O'Leary's excellent publicity stunts.

He tends to deliver on what he says he will, then again as you never fly them why do you care ?
