Can ANR still take 737's?
I don't think the runway has shortened.
Was always marginal though, I have been on a 737 that diverted from there to BRU in blustery but by no means severe conditions.

Your not kidding, just substitute blue for orange and that's it.
Signs of playing catch up I think!

See the Moroccan Govt are to introduce a €9 air tax on departing passengers from April 2014.
So if Ryanair logic regarding the recent depressive impact of a €3 Govt tax on development from DUB carries thru that should see the Marrakesh route announced yesterday dumped before it even starts, surely??


Is MAK not a base? If so what is the future? Regarding AMS and the LOCo terminal, I wonder if there is any space. If RYR park on stand at night and can get away at 06.30 then the stand will be free for the early morning arrival. Fitting in the daytime schedules will be a nightmare as there are only about 7 stands and they are very busy with the other LoCo's. Any hiccup in timings and the whole daily on time performance would crash. MOL would be apoplectic. RWY slots are few and I don't see RYR putting up with all the mess of AMS. I know they do MAD & LGW, but were they following ez, and does it really work of them?

It's also curious that they advertise for cabin crew before the advertise for the pilots; or is the thinking that they just post the pilots where and when they want them, no questions asked. I thought the same was true for cabin crew. Curious.

@Rufust90.
Did you try Manage My Booking?
Sorry for the delay getting back to you Pee, I've been away.
No I didn't have time to try that, I just contacted my credit card company who confirmed I hadn't been charged and then I just bought the flights with another carrier. I just wasn't sure if the problem was with my computer or theirs so thats why I was asking.
I see they have a new website now so I'll try again next time I'm looking for tickets.

Didn't that rumour circulate this time last year too, along with an image of a letter from the Irish embassy requesting the overflight permissions?

Returning to Basel, Ryanair will soon announce a second route to the Euro-Airport (in addition to Dublin, already known).

Unhappy Michael O'Leary to step back from spotlight in Ryanair revamp

Well like him or hate him, I do both, He never bored us with Business speak.

Click Here Michael O'Leary to step back from spotlight in Ryanair revamp

O'Leary will remain chief executive but remove himself from public frontline after deciding his image is weighing down airline

The Ryanair boss, who has been the face of the budget airline for almost 20 years of extraordinary growth, has decided to remove himself from the public frontline over the next year, admitting: "I'm getting in the way."

Ryanair will commence flying from Dublin to both St. Petersburg and Moscow, probably starting end March already. That's what the Russian press announced today and what seems to be confirmed by the publication on Rosaviatsia web site.

The fact that they can't spell Zaventem does not inspire confidence.
(not getting at you Jack, it's the press release that's wrong)

Interesting, FR will commencing flying from FCO on domestic routes in DEC but the flights not yet in the booking engine!!! Maybe I got that wrong?

Things certainly hotting up, as Vueling basing 8 aircraft, easyJet watching on as the other 2 LOCO's come in on strength. Interesting to note the change of language of FR, offering to co-operate with AZ...

Why would FR move aircraft from Ciampino to Fiumicino ? Are they perhaps being coerced into doing so by either airport management or local Govt ?

Interesting to see routes being announced today for a start date less than a month away - do FR know something about Alitalia being more vulnerable than has been discussed in the press ?

Apparently the move is to free up space for international routes in CIA.

Pertinent questions DJ as per usual...............

Lots of attempts to shut CIA.........

Alitalia is alledgedly vulnerable so offering a get out may have some comeback elsewhere. If they went TU just before Christmas then limited number of carriers who could step in with aircraft.

Sense that there will be some leased aircraft arriving as peak travel months of July / August there are no spare aircraft, doubt that this has been done without a contingency plan.

Er, to co-operate?
[Ryanair fares] will be more than one third cheaper than Alitalia’s lowest fares on these domestic routes which currently start at €75 one way.

Ryanair also confirmed that it will increase these daily frequencies if Alitalia cuts back.
They will be co-operating with Vueling and others to get rid of AZ, I guess, or at least to dwindle their presence in... Italy. Well, Alitalia probably deserve it, as they weren't able to make any profit in spite of the massive camouflage support and politically-driven cash reinforcements. But let's face it, the distinct hypocrisy here.


Now an other issue. While this hasty enlargement is easy to perform right now, in the beginning of winter, how many cuts in the already announced 2014 summer timetable must be made to accommodate all these new routes?

easyJet's position

With both Vueling and Ryanair moving in on AZ, you have to wonder what EZY will do. They take pride in the fact they have FCO-LIN, and the base in Naples for Spring 14, I wonder what their position is if AZ fails?

Not sure if you've seen the belly of EI-EXF but similar issue.
