Stuck at bottom of runway. Very icy conditions here. Appears from where I'm sitting it was trying to turn off runway. Lots of flashing lights and head scratching. Cabin crew selling tickets for bus to terminal

Oh dear - is this due to the airport owners not taking due care and attention in keeping their taxi-way free from ice? Bet you O'Leary will think so...

And American Airlines are off the runway in Kingston, Jamaica

A rather more messy affair has occurred in Jamaica, too.

Please do not joke about MOL selling bus tickets back to the terminal. If they arn't then he is going to be mad as hell that he didn't think about it first ! Don't bet against it appearing soon on the list of "extras" on the ticket price !

Perhaps they can add it to the collection:
[*]Charleroi, Belgium, 19th November 2002


[*]Aarhus Airport, Denmark, 6th February 2006



[*]Ryanair's "secret" memo over approach safety, February 7, 2007


[*]Limoges airport France, March 21, 2008



[*]Lodz airport, Poland, April 29, 2008



[*]Bird strike incident, Ciampino, 10th November, 2008




[*]and 12th April, 2009 Ryanair managed to miss the runway completely and land on the taxiway at Cagliari in Italy.


To misquote Oscar Wilde:

To miss one runway may be regarded as a misfortune... to miss six seems like carelessness.

2987 meters is ok but LHR is about 4000m. 1829m is getting tight ish but thats how long Aberdeen, Leeds and Norwich.

http://www.ryanair.com/en/notices/gops/091223-FR772-Dublin_Glasgow-GB


FR772 Dublin - Glasgow (Prestwick)

After a normal landing was completed and while taxiing from the runway the aircraft encountered ice and slid just off the runway onto the grass verge. Passengers disembarked normally and were bussed to the terminal. Ryanair engineers are at the aircraft, which appears to have suffered no damage and they are working with Glasgow (Prestwick) to return the aircraft to the stand area so that the runway can be reopened with minimum delay. Ryanair apologises for any disruption suffered by passengers as a result of this incident.

Why, who do think could be held responsible, O'Leary
