Anyway, returning to the main event, no further clues about what beset FR7622 this morning?
One report I've seen suggested an engine failure.

It doesn't mention any evacuation - it's hard to imagine a planeload of passengers departing via the slides without a single photo of the event appearing on Twitter or Facebook.

Perhaps they thought it was part of the 'service'?

I was the captain on a Easyjet flight at the same time and heard the the Ryanair call "Mayday mayday mayday Engine Failure" we were near Idesi over the North Sea at the time.

So a decision was made by the crew, possibly in conjunction with the company maintenance offices to return to EMA.
It's not as if the aircraft was incapable of that flight.

But as has been mentioned before on the site FR operates a system of having (shock horror) spare aircraft to cover this type of event, and EMA is one of the bases that has a spare (often used for training) based there and immediately available to take over the flight.

You know the sort of thing that is good for the customer.

And no this is not a wind up, it is fact and was given to me sat in the lounge of a senior pilots home!

A lot of fuss about nothing. In passing, the Aviation herald seems to have large holes in its data base regarding reporting of aviation incidents. This is probably based on the way they gather their information. In addition there are probably many more incidents around the world that they do not report.

yes, but that statement could also be rewritten as "based on how different airlines/countries share information". There are huge differences.

Do a Google search for the Spirit plane that caught fire at DFW on July 30. Big flames coming from the wheel, but nothing on AVHerald.

Spare A/C

Ema has a ridiculous amount of spare Ryanair aircraft, primarily used for line trainings, type ratings, cadet training...etc. usually you'll spend two or so hours in the training centre at the back of the CAA building before heading into the crew room. Approximately four aircraft a day are used for training flights.

There are no spare aircraft at EMA but there are usually a few at various bases. There is only 1 training aircraft and it's a 700 (EI-SEV)

Devil Free RYA 737 type rating!

I presume the free 737 in Stansted is used to provide new hires with a free FAA & EASA type rating ??

Might have to use it myself, cos a lawyer associated with the UK dept of transport has offered me a free approved ATPL and TR course (No details of when or where yet), cos some chap in FCL was good enough to send me a message from their address saying they have lost all my Micro and stick records (I still have my gear, but you can't get actual licences in Blighty to obtain an EASA upgraded ticket or three if the CAA file is empty).

Any CAA lawyers care to comment in terms of who is liable, transport dept, CAA, the muppet that binned the files (Might be EASA), yours truly or the good Lord himself ??

PS: A very senior FAA chap has already investigated my case and ruled in my favour in the USA, so there might be a second case filed due to jurisdiction issues over flight time in the USA.
Also something is going on in my 6 O'clock, cos I sent my PP to the Munich US consul for a visa and they sent it back last week with a 5 year work permit 2 days after the M1 interview!
My bank manager (Legal expert) thinks cos I am registered in Germany they might offer me a position with Jerrywings, but he has a weird sense of humour, so I'm convinced he means RYA based down South.

Associated jokes from the FDH flyers bar:
"1/ I bet they find your docs in the expanded Tomato Andy file
2/ Are you his ghost?
3/ You are more likely to get a death certificate first, if you try for damages from EASA
4/ A P2 job with Jerrywings is a death certificate, as you are flying with them this week to NCE.
5/ Don't drive your tuned Renault Twingo to the interview"!
