I still don't get it. I can't book a flight through a Buzz or Lauda website as it directs me to Ryanair so pax still think they're booking Ryanair so the different brands to alleviate fears about Ryanair'a customer service doesn't seem to make sense.

I believe, ISTBC that only new delivery MAXs wear non Ryanair livery, the remainder got flag swap and a new reg.

Wasn't it all a union busting move to divide the pilot community into three smaller groups vs. one powerful whole?

The most logical explanation! Doesn't make sense otherwise.

FR flights to the Azores from London seem to disappear after Christmas. Admittedly, they tend to be only once a week anyway but are they likely to return for the summer season and when would flights become available do you think? Thank you

A few days ago, I made a booking on the Ryanair website (no, it wasn't some fake website) for a one way flight in my own name, using a credit card in my own name. I've now received an email from FR saying my booking was made by an online travel agent or a bot and therefore I need to be at the checkin desk at least 2 hours in advance to check in (or presumably 3 hours to allow for a queue), or spend more money and pass all my biometric details from my passport to some muppet in a call centre and risk identity fraud. Furthermore, access to the booking has been removed when I visit the FR website or look at the Ryanair app on my phone. Web support are hopeless. Any idea as to what one needs to do in future to prevent this happening ? Is it compulsory to book car hire when I fly FR or is there a maximum number of bookings allowed per year per person ?

I've flown with FR about 40 times since the start of 2022, but am very reluctant to use them if there is a risk of having to turn up at the airport 3 hours to checkin

Did you use your work IP? If so, knowing where you used to work and assuming you still work in similar, it may be that. Or did your cookies raise a red flag? They don't like 3rd parties!

Former FR destination has FR routes again as one of the (presumably) last post-Covid lockdown/quarantine reopenings - Eilat Ramon in Israel to Paris-Beauvais, Brussels-Charleroi, Kaunas and Krakow, each 2x weekly from mid December 2022, all likely to be winter seasonal

Slightly surprised that Ryanair subbed the scheduled MAX for a standard B73H and still didn't cancel the boarding card in the system. Seems they boarded to literally find no seat, booked Row 35 in a 33 row aircraft.

No mention of whether they tried to seek volunteers to offload. But then that's what you get from 'journos' who write articles based on trawling the internet for stories and doing a copy and paste

Ryanair seem to have a problem with pre-booked seats on a config change. In September I had 3 seats booked in row 28 of a B738 but due to French ATC strikes I had to transfer to a flight operated by a MAX the next day.....now row 28 only had 2 seats and the system wouldn't allow me to change them, and wouldn't allow me to complete the rebooking unless I paid for what were now emergency exit seats. Bit annoyed to say the least that I paid for the dubious privilege of having my party split up into exit seats we didn't want!

I received the same e mail yesterday from Ryanair (looks a genuine e mail) after I booked a flight on the app 24hrs earlier. Again, I used my own phone, connected to my own wifi and paid using my own credit card.
At the bottom of the e mail, this is stated:IN ORDER TO RESOLVE THESE ISSUES, YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO CHECK-IN BY:

ONLINE VERIFICATION
A passenger on this booking can verify using facial recognition technology.
This service is provided on the Ryanair website for a fee of €0.35.
Online Verification allows you to manage your booking via Ryanair.com.


What is going on? They are an absolute nightmare to contact over the phone or via social media!
The e mail also states to attend the Ryanair ticket desk 120mins prior to departure...which in my case happens to be Stansted, so I assume there is a ticket desk in the check in hall?

Ryanair

Interesting to note this week the number of Ryanair passengers connecting from 1 FR flight to another.
Saw several boarding passes today routing BHX/ARN/GOT and yesterday at least a couple changing in Sofia to another FR flight
Is this a new thing as never noticed Ryanair offering this service before as they always seemed just a point to point airline, Also wondering what happens if initial flight is delayed and connection is missed

Regarding FR "connecting" flights, no this is not a new service! FR still don't officially sell connecting through flights but flight search engines regularly bring such connections up when searching. If you have the time you can find your own routings using the FR app as not all suitable connections come up on Skyscanner etc
​​​​​​However buyer beware. Although often ridiculously cheap they are not official connecting flights (you buy two separate flights) and you will be left high and dry if something goes wrong. Therefore you need to allow a good amount of time between connections so it's not necessarily the fastest routing!

Having said that, this year I've flown BHX - BGY - CTA and AGA - PGF - BHX without any incident and at a very cheap price.
This week I'm flying BHX - MAD - AGA then AGA - DUB - BHX so fingers crossed.....
