Oh really that's fantastic if that's also going to be sold from NWI, was popular for years when Air Malta did it

Think a lot of new FR routes from a variety of UK airports that have been loaded into GDS systems (and can be seen by those in the travel trade) but have not yet been made available for the public to book on the FR website or app.

I should imagine they'll be available to book very soon, FR often release big batches of new routes together with a plethora of new route fanfare press releases!

Indeed @SeanM1997 has announced plenty of new routes yet to be put on sale in the last 5 days, credit to him as always. So i'd imagine they will be on sale to the public in the coming days, with the final details released in their usual fanfare

Just for you GF - Use the Internet site, check an existing BHX route, copy the URL, open a new tab, paste the URL into the new tab and send, then change the 3 letter airport code at the end of the URL to BER and it should show BHX - BER Tuesday & Saturday I could only get it from 16 April. Note it doesn't work for any of the other new flights.

There appears to be a new policy... if you don't pay for an assigned seat when checking in online, then you cannot get a boarding card online and must instead queue up to get one at a checkin desk at the airport.

Anybody have thoughts ?
I would just regard this as a simple increase in fares by about £15 and act accordingly when buying a ticket.

ryanairextra charges hype

If you try to check in more than 24 hours before the flight but having originally booked with a free random seat allocation
- then, it seems, you can either
pay for a seat and then check in straight away
or wait until you are within the 24 hours before checking in with you free random seat

it this what happened here?

The government is meant to be investigating the sharp practices of dodgy airlines like Ryanair where the final price can be more than twice the price of the claimed ticket price.

BHX-BER

OP - thank you 😊👍👍👍 that's a great hack to check out on new routes!

As you know I've been desperate for BHX-BER to return, so to have (for now) 5 flights a week to choose from is amazing and also means I don't have to take as much annual leave to go for a long weekend! I'll for sure be using the new FR flights.

If you click on the link for details of online check-in, the page is currently not available. Probably in process of being updated with the new rules

Ryanair now denying the change happened.

I think something has happened behind the scenes and there is more to the story than is known publicly

Dodgy airlines?
Ryanair is many things but dodgy it is not. It is a total commercial animal and provides a very commercial, safe and punctual service. I think calling it dodgy is stretching it a bit.

In relation to discussion about Ryanair's stance to other low cost airline coming into the Republic of Ireland:

They will retailiate if they can serve the destination (slots) and usually only if they see route as being commercially attractive. It seems if it's a significant LCC competitor like easyJet or Wizz they'll pull out all the stops to push them out.

Yes they don't react to Eurowings, Norwegian, Transavia as mentioned. There are specific reasons here. Eurowings fly to Dusseldorf, and Ryanair do not have slots there, besides Lufthansa group defend their patch very well, we've seen that in Frankfurt and Munich. Ryanair see lower hanging fruit elsewhere. Transavia, same story Ryanair can't get slots at Orly, otherwise they'd be all over this for sure. Norwegian is an interesting one. The brand is strong in Scandinavia and those routes can be thin for non Scandinavian airlines. Ryanair isn't huge in say Oslo, so going to war with Norwegian may not be a good game plan.

In the cases of Wizz, Go, easyJet and bmibaby. They have responded rigourously to each of these. Bmibaby at Cork was an exception, but at that time Ryanair had no base at Cork and clearly didn't have the sort of deal that they have now. They chased bmibaby off DUB/EMA which was at a time a key WW route ..

And to Knock. Ryanair clearly have a special relationship with the airport, which simply is amazing. After Dublin, Knock is the closest airport to where MOL comes from. That might be Pudsey of it, but he seems to want to see the airport progress. The airport introduced the ADF back in the 1990s and Ryanair threatened to withdraw their London route (that's an they had then). The airport said that's fine and had other airlines lined up if Ryanair exited. It never came to pass and Ryanair is solidly supporting the airport. In the case of Norwich, you can be sure if Ryanair accept an ADF , they'll have done so on the basis of attractive commercials. Like somebody said their are exceptions to ever rule...

If this is true that paper boarding passes where forced only to the last 20 passengers to checkin then it looks like they were trying overbooking (or doing temporary overbooking for whatever operational reason).

Believe me, hell will have frozen over before Ryanair add an airport in the UK with an ADF.
They only went back to Newquay because the ADF there was a dropped.
Knock is a special case, itís in Ireland for a start and Ryanair will always defend that fortress. There are exceptions to every rule.
Hell has indeed frozen over

Well said!!
I was just about to make a similar remark when I read that insane comment!

They are one of the safest airlines in the world! Their training and maintenance programmes are second to none! Believe me I know this from people who work within the airline itself and the overall industry.

As for the charging of adding seats, itís done by almost all other airlines. If you donít like it get a randomly assigned seat from 24hrs before departure via the app or website when you check inÖsimples!

Dodgy may have been the wrong word to use, but it seems quite clear that what was being referred to is the sort of pricing tactics referred to here. No need to read in more than was intended.
