You're right, they're not a cancer, they are the pits and the pilots there, with their well paid and secure jobs, are so happy it wouldn't even dawn on them to consider strike action.

Even the national airline here have needed to re-acquire some Q300's because their Q400's can't get in/out here ... The distance I had to travel to escape the Irish cancer ... I feel safe from them here!

Probably you and a million others who like a plasticised environment, herded as if you were cattle, seat backs that don't recline, stale sandwiches, warm beer and so tight or poor you want to pay nigh on bugger all for a ticket because you can't afford to pay to fly with a legacy carrier.

I'm from an era when passengers were regarded as customners rather than victims ... LOL.

Waiting for a comment from Racedo regarding the recognition of those awful unions. Well done everybody, just goes to show what you can achieve when you stick together.

So I am not the only one that thinks that MOL is saying what he needs to say to keep the airline flying and will do a 180 in January when all has slowed down again?

Nope...I`m sure everyone would actually regard it as a triumph for the travelling public over the holiday period...

Somehow I'm not completely convinced that MOL did this as a magnanimous gesture just to save Christmas......

Whatever happens it's been dragging on 4 months now, they need to sort it and if it continues confidence will be damaged even more when people plan to book summer holidays. Slowing they are realizing, it's time to deal with it before it gets out of complete control, this way FR can have more influence than after a strike has taken place because once one takes place the flood gates will open.

Even the Grinch came around in the end.

Seriously, this announcement will split opinion amongst pilots. Exactly as intended.

Mmmm ... LGG is on the same motorway as CRL with the north/south Luxembourg/Brussels motorway dividing the two ... I guess RYR know what they're doing, they also have a route out of MST which is a stone's throw away from LGG ... I guess they'll need some pilots though to operate these routes!

LGG is already a well used airport. MST is very quiet. That has always been a mystery. A few charter airlines have tried to utilise MST even easy jet have tried regular flights. The local tax-payers spend fortunes on what must be a huge loss making under-used airport. There is a strong anti-noise lobby. Geographically it's in a good place. 30 years ago there were night freight operations and slowly they we're all bumped out to LGG. There was a KLM subsidiary flying F50's on schedule ops, but went bust. There are cross-border pax, with Belgium & Germany increasing Dutch. Eindhoven seems to have struggled its way out of the grip of the noise huggers, but MST still has to succeed in that. It plugs a gap between NRN, DUS, CRL, BRS, EIN. If it's not necessary then close it, but stop it haemorrhaging money.

Interestingly journey time from Brussels to Liege airport and Charleroi airport is pretty much the same (1 hour).

It may not be long until Ryanair starts playing off the two airports against each other.

Ryanair crew work five extra hours a day for no pay | Daily Mail Online

Ryanair bosses 'don't treat crew like humans', say staff | Daily Mail Online

I am by no means a lover of the daily mail or pro/anti Ryanair and these kind of reports have been around for years but will this gain some traction with the travelling public?
