I wonder if the new owners of Leeds Bradford are in discussions with Ryanair to induce the airline to offer new destinations / improved frequencies to stop LBA passenger numbers declining in 2018. It looks like yet another destination is ending next year -Montpellier.

I can't see pax numbers declining too much for 2018, Monarchs demise won't be as hard hitting for LBA as it is for others, since they were only a 2 unit operation. I'm sure Ryanair (and/or Jet2) will easily pick up the slack.

As for new destinations, time will indeed tell. MPL can't have been a good seller for them, and Ryanair have been known to be pretty brutal when it comes to underperforming routes. I'm pretty confident if dropped,they'll match it with somewhere else

LEEDS APPROACH

I wonder if the new owners of Leeds Bradford are in discussions with Ryanair to source for them anyone with such a thing as an ATPL to fly their aeroplanes for them!

Since a few days or so there seems to exist an annoying incompatibility of Ryanair booking system with several desktop browsers; the prices simply do not show up and purchases aren't possible. As other browsers as well as the cell phone application cope better and customers are able to use them, I suggest some research: what is the direct influence of limited sales option on sales and profits? Unfortunately, it's rather costly way of carrying out researches, isn't it?

Screen scraping?

I had a similar experience 6 or 9 months ago. It was not browser compatibility as the same computer worked in other locations as well as when I used my mobile as wireless internet for the PC. I believe it was the IP address of the internet connection that was blocked by Ryanair for suspected screen scraping . After a couple of weeks the problem disappeared.

Had an interesting time getting out of Charleroi with Ryanair a couple of days ago:

We were scheduled to take off from CRL at 22:25. Flight left MAN late by an hour and we were told there would be a delay.
It got to around 22:30, announcement: 'This flight must take off before 11pm as Charleroi runway closes at this time'
Plane lands at 22:37, and by some miracle we pushed pack at 22:59 and took off a couple of minutes past 23:00

I have to say, I was pretty impressed - I know Ryanair are known for short turn arounds but this was impressive, if not stressful!

I always feel sorry for the Cabin crew, having to facilitate these short turnarounds, they have to rush around, but in this case it makes it much better than the alternative. They should be commended (but i bet they don't)

As far as I am aware, if you do not have a good internet connection, the Ryanair website has been pretty crap for the last 5 years or so - presumably something to do with using over-sophisticated software.
It is not unusual to get a screen which erroneously tells you that there are no flights to where you want to go.
What is peculiar is that airlines never seem to fix these problems.

Try that in HAM and it’s the CAPTAIN, not the airline, who gets the €xx,000 fine! You have to be off the ground by the closure time......be careful out there......that “can do” attitude may really cost YOU.

Ryanair will cut the pay and conditions of pilots at its home base in Dublin if they vote for industrial action, the airline has said.
Quote:
The airline sent a memo to Dublin pilots today saying it would freeze promotions, cut cash allowances and possibly move pilots to alternative bases if pilots working out of Dublin support industrial action at ballots on today and tomorrow.

The memo said Ireland's IALPA pilots union had demanded recognition, a move which Ryanair said "simply will not happen".

A Ryanair spokeswoman said the company "did not comment on communication with our people."

LeoHairyCamel

Anyone on here remember the days of LeoHairyCamel , which was widely believed to have been O`Leary himself...Wow he certainly got things going, didn`t he. Talk about wind up ..Think the Mods might have eventually banned him though
