For the avoidance of doubt, I don't like Ryanair.

Time for a red pill?

The dye is cast, perhaps North Korea is a lot closer than we think?

Hopefully now this will actually turn a corner and we can go back to having some reasonably informed debate/speculation without having to sift through the bitter, uninformed, malicious rubbish that's immediately posted as soon as the airline is mention.

Completely agree

Personally i think he's an annoying gobshoyte. Can't help but admire his business acumen though.

To date, yes. He has full control of the bottom end of the market. But has he trained a another aggressive, vocal rottweiler to take his place? Succession is a vital part of management. I don't believe has has done a good job at this if I was a business analyst I recommend a "sell" as soon as I got a whiff of his departure. Therefore I'll predict a dramatic fall in their share price when he announces his retirement. Also, I believe RYR's share price over-values its goodwill. They have little which I'm sure will be proved when they have proper competition.

Quite agree with you PM, but take one look at his bank account. Fair to say he's quite smart, and lets's be honest, it's all he cares about.

thats a fair comment; it still doesnt invalidate my post there grafity. i have nothing against fr in any way shape or form; hence why its not that surprising that i make a mistake like that. you are right as the title is misleading and i do not spend all of my free time researching what other airlines do.

i do believe the point still stands that if three of your planes have to declare fuel emergencies on one night there IS more than likely something going wrong. its just what i would consider common sense. no need to get offensive though; i dont think i was.

Amazing. You really have to watch the documentary to put that statement in context!

From Ryanair a clear message to think twice about what you post. Although to me it is as if a person has been permanently made stand in the corner, facing the wall as a result of some bad behavious. It is almost a violation of human rights with no time limit. Mark, there are persons who can help 'small fry' repair their internet reputation and I hope you have support from friends.

Hmm - strange behaviour indeed. I wonder if he is still a First Officer with RyanAir.............. If not, finding employment as a pilot now will be a challenge.

What violation of human rights is it ?

Statements were false, that he has acknowledged.

He has acknowledged he will not make the FALSE claims he made again under the name used on here or any other name.

Option was to go to court and fight the case, then if lose be bound by the court ruling which would potentially be a binding injunction not to mention, discuss or publicise false allegations.

Also pick up the costs and potentially damages if lose, it is unlikely that people would be retracting what they have origianlly said on here without having discussed this with legal representation.

Hi Racedo, Ryanair, have just put on a show of public hanging for us. Did you enjoy it?

No they haven't.

They asked for people to stand by the statements they made, this applies to me as much as you.

Clearly when faced with statements they have made and asked to prove and stand by them there was some mature reflection and a request to set the record straight.

People have option of their day in court, none so far have gone down that route but no doubt some will.

A source (not me nor anyone known to me etc) said "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence". I don't think they were talking about events related here.
And:
....finding employment as a pilot now will be a challenge.
You post reads as if you endorse this situation.
Why?
I'd hire someone who raises safety concerns, wouldn't you? It means that, by definition they are CONCERNED WITH SAFETY.
CHIRP and every company confidential reporting system (mandated by the authority) is devalued otherwise.

- I really cannot see how you have come to that conclusion, but it is a free world and forum and it takes all sorts. My point was, which I think you have missed, that a pilot who admits to posting false and possibly damaging 'statements' about his employer's safety (not 'who raises safety concerns') might be looked at quite critically for further employment. You presumably think it is ok. Of course, even the genuine safety-orientated pilots can be a nuisance to some management.
