Airlines probed over 'confusing' seating policy - BBC News

It appears that the CAA is mainly targeting Ryanair with this investigation and says that enforcement action will be taken if seating policy is not found to be 'transparent'.

The CAA targeting Ryanair, who'd have thought it.

Have they discovered that there are airlines registered in the UK yet?

If so, when will they start regulating them?

To be fair Ireland doesn't have a regulator as such.
Perhaps Ireland needs a proper regulator then the UK CAA won't need to get involved.

I think you'll find that the UK CAA can't get involved, the UK CAA have no jurisdiction in Republic of Ireland.

If a regulator really wants to get involved and is confident of Govt backing at a senior level (eg Secretary of State for Transport) and feels that alternative routes to solve the problem are ineffective, then they will get involved. A regulator that is perceived as ineffective (even if unfairly because it has no formal powers) may find itself with political problems of its own in the media or in Govt.

There are all kinds of ways the UK CAA can make trouble for non-UK airlines on an informal basis when on UK soil. While an airline can always challenge informal action through the courts, an airline may decide that modifying its behaviour slightly leads to a more positive outcome in the long term for the airline

The CAA main cause of concern is Ryanair charging for under 12s to sit with their parents, this is a mandatory instruction for an operator in the UK. This is for the safety of all onboard an aircraft, I certainly would be making sure I got to my daughter, to get her off the plane in an emergency as would most parents, it’s human nature. This is why the policy is in place, also woul you want your child sitting next to a stranger. I know of two investigations running currently at an airport in the UK where a passenger woke up to find the person next to them was sexually assaulting them.

Perhaps the UK need a proper regulator that regulates it's own airlines and holds them to the standards and the rules and regulations in the same way that they seem to require other foreign airlines to?

You will remember that last year that CAA took action against Ryanair in relation to cancellation of flights and were very heavy handed with them and said that Ryanair would need to take certain actions or face further action.

Well I had two similar issues with another carrier in the past for flights out of the UK with a UK airline and the CAA couldn't be less helpful and were not really interested in anything like the same teeth that they went after Ryanair with, they seem completely disinterested.

They did tell me however they appreciate my concerns and that they have 'written' to all UK airlines and asked them to reply indicating if they are complying with all the relevant compensation regulations - I'm sure that every single airline they wrote to were EXTREMELY stressed by such request - I mean why regulate UK airlines when you can just take their word for it?

I'm still waiting for them to take the same enforcement action against their own airline to force them to give me the compensation I am entitled to, but since they are a UK airline, it seems that the CAA have suddenly had all their teeth removed in enforcing the regulations they were so loud about only a few months ago.....

You didn't make the mistake of contacting them on a Friday afternoon did you when they are all down a boozer in Charlwood getting slaughtered at our expense?

Too long a route from the UK for Ryanair? Would it require crew to overnight there?

Is Jordan still going to require that tourists from European countries pay for a visa costing 60 pounds per person (and also pay a tax to leave Jordan) or are they going to change this policy ? If not it might put a dampener on inbound tourist demand for short breaks
And yes I know about the Jordan Pass scheme but adding bureaucracy never encourages customer demand for a product...
