As for flying into CDG / ORY, your flight is going to Southend and can't land so lets just call LHR and tell them we want to land, right that should be a fun conversation.

Two other airports, one surly would of accepted and as it was after 23.30 in the evening those airports were hardly packed to the rafters. I'm sure FR didn't even try as it would be a cost to them.

STN/LGW/LTN would of being able to take a flight from SEN.


This is a common problem in BVA and there is no plan in place, if its not the time its the weather.


Ask what happened in KRK last night, Ryanair staff just left passengers for 4 hours before cancelling a flight.

we don't blockade roads or ports, burn trucks, dump dead sheep in the road either, so don't lecture me on the French please.........these people behaved like animals and professional aircrew should not be subjected to this kind of abuse...period
Fuel Strike by truckers in 2000
Port blockages by those against Veal Calf exports
Unite attacks against managers and families at Grangemouth 2013
Farmer blockages at food and dairy processing plants and retailer distribution sites
Union attacks including deaths of people during miners strike
Jail for animal rights extremists who stole body of elderly woman from her grave | UK news | The Guardian
Digging a body up and attacking a farm

As for nice behaved English people..............Heysel Liverpool fans actions is a reminder and England national team supporters abroad are given a wide berth

BGY closing for maintenance?

Not sure if it's been noted but it appears Bergamo will be closing for maintenance sometime this Summer, as Malpensa MXP has appeared in the drop-down menu with the exact same destinations as Bergamo although no flights loaded.

Nationality has SFA to do with it.

Ask the staff that were abused at Gatwick at Christmas by Pax if people behaved with stiff upper lip or as reported on here the Aer Lingus staff abused at Dub by pax when things were held up.
Completely agree, pax sometimes believe paying circa 40 euro entitles them to thousands, when if a bus/train was cancelled they'd be left royally in it. Media has a lot to do with this.

The difference is that one rarely has to wait days for a replacement bus.

You are joking Insuindi about Brits behaving like those on the Ryanair flight. I live here in southern Spain and you want to see some of the ´´antics´´ that some of them get up to - it is not Marbella either - just a quiet little port for most of the year.
The thing about the French, Spanish etc they stand up for their rights and don´t sit on their backside and shrug their shoulders like people in the UK seem to do now. One recent incidence which may have escaped you in the UK - the town of Burgos in the north of Spain has seen a number of clashes with police and local people who objected to their boulevard being turned into a traffic-free area on the instructions of the Mayor (the mayor has a lot of influence in Spanish towns and villages). He has had to suspend the work for the moment due to the protests.
I would think also on the Ryanair flight I would have thouht a large proportion of the passengers would have Moroccan or French with Moroccan ties as the flight operated from Rabat.

I wasn't referring to commuter buses, for example euro-lines operating a daily late-evening Cork-London service, if it's cancelled its cancelled. Refund, no compo, different story with airlines altogether.

One of the advantages of the scramble system of boarding was that, if one reached the plane reasonably early, one could choose a window seat which did not require looking over ones shoulder to see out.

Now that seat reservation may be necessary to obtain a window seat, it would be nice to know which seat rows have comfortably placed windows.

Would it be possible for someone to list the seat rows with a rating (say A,B,C) for the convenience of the windows ?

I flew on EI-DYZ two weeks ago in 11F, which had a window, and noticed that 11A had no window. Hope this helps.

Just looked on Seatguru and it confirms 11A does not have a window, it looks like the only one missing.

I haven't heard about the plans for scheduled maintenance at BGY this summer. Usually such things are being announced 1 year before or smth. No checked and no information provided.

Could it be big news from Ryanair for today that they will leave BGY for MXP?

BGY is closing for planned runway maintenance from May 13 to June 1 included.

ALL airlines operating to/from Milan/BGY will reroute their flights to Milan/MXP.

FR has a multi-year commercial agreement with BGY and it's not planning to leave.

Possibly this is the article but seems a % sign is missing out of the last paragraph...... Ryanair promotes its new direction in London as airline announces that customers ‘love’ its recent service improvements - Marketing - Marketing | Ireland's online business and management news service - Businessandleadership.com




“Ninety-seven of 10,000 Ryanair customers surveyed have said they will fly Ryanair again – and can continue to enjoy a range of customer service improvement and initiatives as well as the lowest fares and most on-time flights, but can now enjoy reduced airport bag, boarding card and excess bag fees, a second free small carry-on bag, along with easier website access, 24 hour grace periods, quiet flights and allocated seating, with further improvements set to be rolled out over the coming weeks and months,” said Ryanair’s head of customer service Caroline Green.

I don't get this dramatic announcement Racedo. Until all airlines join Google flights with their best fares isn't the consumer still going to have to shop around for the best deal?

% .... perhaps?
I wouldn't. Have flown them once, had a specific reason for doing so, and it wasn't because it was 'cheap' or even convenient. They got me there on time, but it was a ghastly experience and I despise their ethics, and for that reason more than any other, and won't fly them again.

I try and avoid them too despite using them all the time years ago. Nothing against them, they are a hugely successful airline but I just don't like the service/product so no thanks. Maybe their recent changes will improve them but who knows.

My issue is I really want to go to Marrakech, direct with Ryanair or one stop with others...a tough call.
