Ryanair t.v. advertising.

Isn't it a bit odd that Ryanair are shoving adverts out on the t.v. whilst (as of this morning) they are still cutting flights?

They probably booked the timeslots and paid for the adverts months ago and the TV company told them that if they wanted to cancel then the only money they would get back would be any taxes they paid and that they would have to pay an administration fee for this which would probably wipe out the refund so they decided to simply let the adverts air as planned.

Mind the stairs! Well, perhaps not when it's all you're going to get.

Not so strange really. Although many flights have been cancelled, they are still in business and would want to remind potential customers that they can still make bookings.

In all seriousness, it would be a terrible shame if the company was severely damaged now. Today I see headlines: XMAS Cancelled, with reports of vast numbers of people disappointed.

This is the kind of thing I thought would happen years ago, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Many, many flying hours under a lot of belts and on good kit as well. I wish they'd been there when I was flying Daks and Viscounts.

Ryanair 737s have integral airstairs to avoid having to use airbridges/jetways. They believe this helps with a fast turnaround.

I think Ryanair are being their usual disingenuous selves. My flight to/from Copenhagen in December was cancelled by them. Refund + 80 voucher for future flight promised, yet to arrive. So far, no problem. On checking a little I discovered that my flight to CPH is still accepting bookings because it is only the return leg from CPH that has been cancelled. Of course, this route does not appear on their official route cancellations because, presumably you can still get there. It just makes me wonder how many more of these cancelled return only legs there are which are not published.
The winners in all of this fiasco will, presumably, be Easyjet, Flybe, Norwegian, Vueling and other lo-cost carriers. The knock-on effect of all this would appear to be a migration of Ryanair pax to other lo-cost outfits. I have rebooked with Norwegian. Never flown with them before because I wasn't aware of their routes and prices. I am now!

Not just on Ryanair '7373s.

chevvron .... only at the front of the 737-800s ... Either you need airstairs at the rear or it takes too long for a 25 mins turnround to deplane everyone through the front.
