His Master's Voice

Now it's the weather and ATC which are also to blame.

Just heard it live in BBC 5-live at the moment.

"Enjoy" as our American cousins assert; so frustratingly.

Now he has just rowed back to say he is not blaming weather/ ATC but it is all due to "allocating 12 months leave in a 9 month space."

Now he has just blamed "thunderstorms over Barcelona"

¿Coherent?

They have prepared a list of cancellations to the end of October.

But it is not clear when they will publish it.

"Lines of flying" jargon to the fore. LOF = 1 aircraft ??

Emails to be sent today ? YES he says



I'm off. For my flight to Beauvais. If it's not cancelled, natch.

(He has stated they will pay EU261 for flights over next 2 weeks Max 20m€ hit here for Ryanair) Smaller figure quoted for revenues(?)

Mons-case gets a mention; 100% dismissive of its implications. "I'm just quoting him."
Now he is inviting everyone to join a union "with which we will not negotiate."

Fair deal Frank's windfall. Books his cheap €9.99 flights to keep his options for travel open and gains €250 compensation +++

Or they were the catalyst because they 'poached' RYR pilots.

Disappointing that the BBC reporting of all this, serving Ryanair's largest market, is still, days after the situation emerged, just about parroting Ryanair's statements. Feature on BBC Monday lunchtime news was still parroting the official line of "40 cancellations a day", when it is surely not hard for them to find (here and elsewhere) that in reality it is twice as many. The rest of the report was taken up with yet another of the ad nauseam repetitions of the EU compensation requirements.

Just lazy reporting.

The canx posted by DAZ covers the period 25Sep-28Oct ,and this appears to still be correct .

There is a separate tranche covering 21-24Sep which he has not posted ,and this includes one rotation from Glasgow to Carcassone on Sat 23Sep.

The latest statement about cancelling flights on busy routes where they could accomodate passengers the day before or after also doesn't ring true; I saw STN-TLL flights cancelled, and that only operates 4x weekly.

Storm in a tea cup. It's today's news story. FR ballsed up, big deal. Shit happens. 2% of their customer base affected. The FR monster machine will continue to out perform the other wannabe's.

It's good they've got the list out, and it does seem to be better thought out than the initial scramble in terms of targetting routes with multiple daily flights / other options. In that sense they can now start to try and limit the harm.

But... everyone knows this is out there, and they are presumably now stretched to breaking point. The next lot of bad press starts when they (given their size) start cancelling extra flights because of crew shortages; and probably it will happen somewhere every single day.

Nope, 100% of their customer base affected. Who will fly with them in the next few weeks, or months?
What if more pilots leave...
It's the beginning of the end....

A complaint to the EU has been made.

DublinPole, what's up with this new proposed 3rd Warsaw airport. Why not just expand Modlin?
