Does anyone know when Ryanair plan to retire the 737-200?
I am planning to take one last trip on the '200' from Bristol to Dublin in Jan or Feb 05. My purpose of this trip is solely to fly on this aircraft type (of course I except it could be changed for operational reasons at the last minute).
I would be very grateful if anyone could give me specific information regarding the retirement program and how that might effect the Bristol route.

"That's good I am thinking of doing MAN-DUB or LGW-DUB just to get on a 732!"
I think the LGW-DUB route is done by the dreamliner now...if you wat to get on a 732 in the LON area,,,I would take the last flight from STN FR295 to DUB, its sure to be operated bya 732 as the aircraft is based in DUB. most of the regional UK routes from DUB are done by the 732 now as all the 732's are overnighted in DUB but LPL is a dodgy 1 now for a 732 as iit has been announced as a base and is sure to get a 738 or 2 based there.
i know why u want to get on one though as really feel like "you are flying"

EI-DCL (dreamliner) is souley based at LTN at the moment operating the LTN-DUB route.
I booked with FR to get a ride on the 200 also along with EZYAirbus, AvianceGirlUK and Ben but the 200 was taken off and replaced by the dreamliner about a week after we booked our flights, still got on the dreamliner though
your best bet is from STN / LGW / MAN to DUB to get the 200

Just find yourself a Dublin out or Dublin based aircraft back and you should get what you want!!! Most if not all of the 732's are Dublin based!! Fully depreciated aircraft used on the most lucrative routes - Dublin based!! Must be something to do with the Irish not being a complaining nation??!!

even with switching to 738s and reducing frequency you'll still get more seats than now anyway.
Typical, who gives a damn about the passengers. For more seats on the route we'll inconvenience the passengers! Who wants a reduced frequency?
Has this frequency reduction happened at other airports where the B738 is already on the DUB route, for example PIK?
