I'm not a huge fan of MOL but in all honesty, Ryanair is the most reliable and punctual airline I've flown with. Since 1995 I think I've only experienced 3 or 4 delays. Or have I just been very lucky?

Have Ryanair's customers finally snapped? ? Telegraph Blogs

Ironically, if Ryanair really is being sincere, and really does mean to change its approach to customers, it's an admission that something has gone wrong. And it could take some time to put things right...........

Whether Ryanair really is turning over a new leaf is yet to be seen. Being obnoxious has worked a treat for years to reinforce the core message of being cheap.
But if Ryanair's customers have got bored and are beginning to head elsewhere, simply being nice may not be enough to win them back.

God Capetonian move on would you. You're never going to be a fan of Ryanair no matter what they do, that's fine but why keep wasting energy over it?

Do yourself a favour and put me on your ignore list. Don't try to prevent others from expressing their views, nobody forces you to read them .

Very astute of you to observe that.

pilot meeting

A 'group of pilots' week be having a meeting with the press soon. Apparently this is not allowed and Pprune is censoring all commentary. This could be huge given the issues which beset our industry.

No sh@&""t no comment allowed on the event of the 29th on this forum?
That would be very strange as company the meeting is about does not acknowledges the existence of the party that is holding the event mmmmmmm

Why the censorship of discussing the upcoming event?

Which event ? could I suggest (if required) a re-posting on Jet Blast , or perhaps on "Spotters Corner"/ " Gardening weekly" or indeed any of the other forums used to divert "politically sensitive/Ryanair" issues which beset us from time to time.

Whether the company acknowledges the group or not is irrelevant - its a significant milestone for a huge amount of pilots and an impartial pilot forum would recognise that.

Another nail, for free speech.

I would hope said pilots are ready for retirement. If they aren't they may need to be.

As pilots never have and never will stick together, there will always be individuals to replace them.

So the group of pilots employed by a company that has redefined the appropriate remuneration of an entire industry in Europe, finally find their feet and it should be in "Gardener's Corner"?

Very glib.

That's rich coming from a Thomson driver. Not exactly whiter than white when it comes to serious incidents.

Define what Market share..............

Reason for asking is EU industry is so vast that trying to define losing market share then you need to define exactly where.
