[QUOTE=iggie;10067201]Rob Royston What is meant by 'the designated resort's arrival day'?[/QUOTE

I mean the way that many holiday resorts served from these airports will all be on the one day, e.g.. Funchal is almost all Monday arrivals, although you can arrive on a Thursday for some bookings if you arrange travel yourself.

This is a longstanding practice at European resorts, going back to the earliest days of holiday charter flights, where operations to a given destination from multiple start points are concentrated on a given day of the week. It gives a range of advantages, as any combination of flight and accommodation can be offered and combined, without any wasted empty accommodation days. It also meant that consolidating flights, even between different tour operators and airlines, in the shoulder season was straightforward. Different resorts had this key day on different days of the week to enable the aircraft to be in use throughout. Although never really absolute, there was a considerable tendency to stick to this pattern, such as Palma on Saturday, Fuerteventura on Wednesday, etc, and although with the rise of LCCs the original rationale has diminished, the old pattern can still be seen in schedules.

Downsides were a limited choice of departure days for given destinations, as passengers would find most operators and airlines only offered the same day, and notably handling issues at the destination airport, with the need for considerable resources and overcrowding on one or two days of the week, and much less at other times.

Ah, the old adage "if you want to go to Tenerife then it must be Tuesday" comes to mind.

Or, as I pointed out two days ago, if it's Thursday it must be Lanzarote.

Folowing the FlyServus episode, it seems Ryanair will return to Crotone and open routes to Bergamo and Pisa for S18

GLA is 2 a/c for summer 2017 and was always intended to go back to 1 for winter and is still going back to 2 for summer 2018.

February traffic up 5%. Must be the lowest increase for some time. Load factor 95%, same as last year.

Looking at January 2019 there is a Saturday flight from MAN-TFS that is in the timetable but beyond the middle of that month stops showing prices. Does anyone have any guidance on when this will be available to book (if ever) - based on historical knowledge. I don't often use Ryanair so not too familiar with how they release flights

Edit to add: now available to book

Ryanair will no longer charge trainee pilots almost 30,000 upfront for training under a policy change announced today.

Up to now, trainees known as cadets were charged a course fee of 29,500 and were not paid until they had completed a significant portion of their training.

However, in the careers section of its website, Ryanair has announced what it calls a new "sponsored" type-rating programme, under which pilots will only have to pay a one-off upfront payment of 5,000 for their training.

However, pilots will also be subject to a "5 year reducing bond" binding them to the airline for that period.

They will also be paid a salary from the first day of their line training. On its website, the airline described the new programme as a revolutionary, industry-leading cadet programme which was a first among low cost airlines.

Hmmmm... Starting to ponder on Mr O'Leary's mental stability if he goes down that route, the British public are generally not that forgiving when big companies deliberately bring politics into business and strand them... On a plus note, Ryanair's competitors will be overjoyed when the airline grounds its fleet....

This is just a new incarnation of standing places and paid toilets. He knows how to get free advertising.

If he did Jet2 would certainly move fast to fill any gaps at Stansted but I don’t see anything changing in aviation what so ever.
