Ryanair are certainly a punctual airline. I prefer the food/drinks onboard than on Easyjet and the cabin crew have always been great in my experience.
However, a 4 hour trip to Marrackech I would have to use the exit seats onboard as Ryanair seating is a little cramped for a long flight to Morocco.

Good move by FR I think. Just came through LIS courtesy of EZY and it's a great city. Badly affected by the economic downturn but with a creative undercurrent that reminded me of Berlin. And it's a lot warmer! The airport's LCC terminal is remote and of course just a shed really but adequate.

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?
Don't know how Dramatic it was..........did it involve some cunning trumpets with a cunning plan or was it just a press release ?

I would have my serious doubts.
They are written by PR people.

Logically: where this aircraft could actually be based? (...) My guesswork's conclusion: it will be a Modlin based aircraft.
The schedule has now been changed for a WRO based plane to make the rotation: WRO (17:55) -WMI-GDN-WMI-WRO (22:40). Whatever plans might have existed, the rumoured Modlin base will not be implemented right now.

and mikkie how many people travelled with Ryanair in 2013? I know a fair amount of corporate people who have moved from legacy to Ryanair because of their new baggage rules.

?Sent to Siberia? Ryanair pilot has claim thrown out - Independent.ie

Morgan Fischer case thrown out. Court stated,

"Noting that Capt Fischer did not want to sign a new contract on lesser pay, “the reality is that different bases have different pay levels. This is very clearly set out in the contract,” the tribunal ruled, adding that the job at Kaunas was offered to him “because he never sought an alternative as he should have done.
“To complain about being sent to Timbuktu in circumstances where other options were clearly available to him but were not availed of by him is not a sustainable argument,” the tribunal found.
“It appears that the claimant, in effect, wished to re-write his contract on his terms and ignore what he had signed up to when he joined the respondent company (Ryanair). Not surprisingly, this was not an option.”"

Smile Allocated Seating

Tomorrow is D-Day for the introduction of allocated seating on Ryanair. I think it's a good step in the right direction. As I am operating on earlies tomorrow I am hoping for a painless and seamless transition

Second biggest airline in Europe.

It defies reason to suggest that it's just a bunch of confused OAPs or dementia sufferers who inadvertently book Ryanair. People love to *whine* like a VC10 on maintenance but it's a pretty inescapable fact the talking that matters is done with their wallets.

Skip

Stop using logic as that confuses those who believe FR is responsible for everything.

Do you guys know if a couple flying together within the same booking, if they don't buy reserved seats will they still be able to fly together?
