andymartin Last year our EDI-FNI flight (738) was cancelled due to French ATC strikes and we transferred onto EDI-MRS the next day (MAX) and our seating was now all over the place due to the row now being an exit row, and they ended up charging us extra for the exit row seats and for splitting us up!! At first the Ryanair online help didn't want to help but I wrote an email, explained exactly what had happened and they replied and refunded the fee for the exit row seats within a few days. I just methodically went through the issue and the consequences and they had no issue.
In your situation though, were your original seats in a different section of the aircraft? Ryanair don't charge less for the non-window seats than in the rows around them. In my situation I had no choice - the aircraft changed forced us into more expensive seats with no other choice. That may be the difference.

Is anyone able to remember how far in advance FR published a *full and complete* schedule for flights throughout the first week of April 2023, ie the start of S23 ? I'm thinking only of good faith intention to fly, not last minute cancellations due to things like weather

I'm trying to figure out when one should expect the winter 2023-24 schedule to be fully (not just partially) published.
3 months in advance ? Longer ? Shorter ?

I know the W23-24 schedule is not yet fully published - there are too many obvious gaps in routes that are very popular during the winter

There seems to be some discussion as to whether FR will or won't fly to Ponta Delgada in the Azores after the end of October

Looks like a Tirana base is on the cards:

Alcohol to be banned on flights between the UK and Spain - not just routes to/from Ibiza. News source in German, but Google Translate works well

Embarrassing! Only on flights involving the UK!
The majority of us behave well on flights and in resorts, shame the minority have to spoil it!

I donít know what the alcohol rules are in airports within the EU, but there should be a limit on what hours your able to drink at UK airports!

Has anyone ever booked Ryanair flights other than on their website or via the app?
I used our online travel agency in work and when I enter the reservation code and my e mail address from the confirmation e mail, the booking cannot be retrieved.
Should I attempt to contact them via social media?(wish me luck)!
I have 7 weeks before the actual flight, just want to get it sorted in advance!

You probably won't pass Ryanair gdpr.
You need to speak to the travel agent

Happened me at the weekend, few nights away with my other half booked by an online travel agent. Out with Ryanair, return with Aer Lingus. Got an Email from EI, the travel agent & another from the travel agent confirming the FR flight, I did find unusual there was no direct email from Ryanair.

Half an hour later I received another email from Ryanair via the Travel agent saying they blocked the booking as it was done by a Ďthird-party travel agentí with no commercial partnership with Ryanair. Email gave two links to verify the booking on the Ryanair website. So either Ryanair havenít notified your travel agent or the agent hasnít informed you.

Thanks for the info.
I will contact our travel agency in work. I only have received an email from them with the itinerary, and of course Ryanair doesnít recognise the reservation on both their website and app.

Itís only Ryanair this happens with, as far as my companyís experience is concerned with booking flights either for leisure or business via our online agent.

A few months ago, I made the mistake of clicking through from Google Flights to the Ryanair website in order to book a flight with them. A few days later, they sent me an email saying it had been booked via a third party and asking me to confirm my identity (costing, I think, £5) or check in at the airport for something like £30-£40.

Since then, I still use Google Flights or Skyscanner to compare flights & prices, but I always make sure I open the Ryanair website separately and clear cookies and history before I book anything (or use the app).

The article doesn't say alcohol will be banned. It just states that you will not be able to smuggle your own supplies into the cabin. No European airline allows consumption of your own supplies of alcohol anyway as far as I know.

I donít understand why Ryanair expect you to only book via their website or app direct.
They attract business travelling passengers, most of these wonít book in this way, but via their companyís travel agency as per their companyís procedures.
Why should passengers have to pay extra to check in at the airport when all the relevant fares have already been paid during the booking process!

The company I work for wouldnít allow the sale of Ryanair flights via their third party travel agency if there were extra charges that had to be incurred and/or if the employee would encounter this type of hassle during the checking in process.

I can and do book RYR flights through my employers on-line travel portal, SAP with no additional external charges.

But yes, if for whatever reason, I ask our associated travel partner to book me on RYR, then no can do.

And we are not allowed to book direct on the airline site for business travel.

My company lets us book our own travel and Ryanair is an option, but only via the external travel website.
Itís crazy, Iíve booked Ryanair for a leisure trip via my companyís external site, because I can.
But I canít see my booking!

It shows how much they depend on additional purchases by pax.

It's the way of a lot of purchases these days, car hire and insurance springs to mind.

Yes and they make 13 euros from each passenger - it really is amazing that you can build a major business on that . But as the articles point out they have better management than any one else - not firing people, ordering one type, in bulk and owning most of their own aircraft and not being distracted by hotels, car hire, long haul etc etc.

I don't like O'Leary but he's really got it figured out - how many other people would keep the old name and not rename it after themselves for example?
