I'd like to see FR at EMA.
From a passenger's point of view it'd be great for me, I've booked some Ryanair flights to Dublin for next month, the prices are great, it'd be better if it was from EMA and not BHX. Ok, BHX isn't the other side of the world, but the nearer the better
Ryanair always seem to have the best prices, bringing these prices (hopefully) to EMA would be good.

FR would only be competing on the Dublin route with BHX. All others arent served from BHX with FR. Again even at EMA there are no flights to Germany so HHN would be fine. CIA there are no flights to Rome at the moment, Bergamo is not daily and dont think it is operated over the summer and Dublin has been reduced for the summer season so whats the problem and they wouldnt reall be competing against bmibaby at the moment

The market for FR is deffinately present at EMA, and i doubt they'd have trouble filling their planes from there. Remember Ryanair fly to Dublin from Liverpool and Manchester - only 30 miles between those two airports, so I don't think the fact that BHX is an hour away would deter Ryanair at all if EMA proposed an attractive deal.
I'd like to see them at EMA also, as it might give bmibaby a kick up the backside and get them to lower some fares which are often overpriced even when booking months in advance.
However, with the possibility of even more people passing through EMA, that airport is going to burst in the morning rush unless they extend the 'terminal'.
