Fully agree with you. Can you imagine what boarding area A is going to be like now?



Long live Aer Lingus!

He really needs to get real!

Im be ashamed to call FR my countrie's national carrier, I love the way they fail to mention any long haul routes that EI offer.

That's another reason why I hate Ryanair, they can't just start new routes and get on with it like everyone else, they have to ridicule another airline or someone else to go along with it!

I so fully agree with you. As far as I'm conecrned and many Irish people I'd say, as long as EI are around, and with their 75 years of history I hope they will be around for very long, Aer Lingus is and will always be our national airline. FR a national airline... what a JOKE. Mol reallly is incredible with some of the rubbish he comes out with.



Long live Aer Lingus!

It wont be so bad for the winter as they will just take the slack from the flights which operate in summer only like AC, but these new routes are year round, so if Pier D is not ready by next summer the airport will be hell for passengers.

They are of course not the national carrier, only FR themselves are claiming this. Its a laughable notion  rotfl

I gotta say that I'm surprised that they chosed Billund. I think its cool. But I hoped that they would have chosen KRP instead. But they are probably to damn expensive as usual.

If I was Irish I think I could be very proud of what Ryanair has achieved. A hugely successful business operation, one the leaders in its market sector in Europe.

Whilst FR does not have the same level of 'Irishness' that Aer Lingus have - though with EI's move to being a LCC it becomes difficult for them to continue to provide that difference - all the facts and figures behind the spin that MO'L provides are true.

Would you really prefer there to be no FR and for the level of choice and additional destinations to travellers it provides not to be available?

God I hate Ryanair. Is it really necessary to act like you're a 3 year old child going "my airline's bigger than Aer Lingus, nya nya na nya nya". It really is pathetic.

As an aside, on average my trips between Dublin and Birmingham with Aer Lingus are CHEAPER than Ryanair. Ryanair's service is rubbish as well. If I have a late flight and a legitimate complaint (ie the flight being nearly 2 hours late, and boarding the plane being a nightmare with passengers barging and shoving whilst the Ryanair people look on not giving a damn) then I expect it to be dealt with, or at least to get an apology for the poor service (I'm not that fussed about compensation). I do NOT expect a politely worded "p*ss off, your flight was delayed by less than 2 hours so by law we don't have to care" from Ryanair!

Aer Lingus wins hands down every time for me. I now only fly with them to the UK.

I've never tried FR before, but I just booked a weekend trip to DUB for next year.  Smile

It wouldn't make no difference to me, I would never, ever, ever, fly Ryanair!

If I had 2 options of getting from A to B, one being direct with Ryanair, the other being by going via 3 other airports... I'd go with the 3 other airports.

They really are, just... shit!

You asked my opinion, you got it, just because you don't like it, doesn't really bother me?

Yes, right, they have their success, well done to them for getting this far, but, as said, they are a real sour, childish airline, and they haven't won their success fairly.

I know most of you think that I don't like FR because they left CWL, but I actually never liked them in the first place, simply for the reasons:
- MOl is the biggest dick head ever to grace this planet
- They ridicule airports and airlines if they're a threat, insted of taking competition seriously, and dealing with it fairly
- My idea of a good airline is one that won't leave you stranded in an airport if they cancel your flight, one that offers a decent service, one who's crew do care for your needs, one that is fair to, and appreciates it's passengers.

As for the 30M passengers, they pay pittence for their flight, and you'll find that probably at least 20M of them will be dis-satisfied with what they got.

I'd rather pay that little bit extra, and be guaranteed a safe, enjoyable journey!

FR offer exactly what they describe as their service. As consumers it is our choice whether we use them or not.

That's quite an allegation to make that FR are not safe... care to back it up with some facts that prove your assertion?

Ryanair is successful by linking nowhere to nowhere... or some nowhere hub to nowhere

While FR might lay claim to being Ireland's 'National Carrier' EI can claim they're the country's 'International Flag Carrier', something I'd be a lot more proud of than just a national airline.

I'm not out to bash FR, I'm flying with them in November.

So maybe you're mixing your slogans and you find Ryanair refreshing and probably the best airline in the world?

Oh no chance of that mate - anyhow my day job means i can afford to have some light fun on here.


I don't particularly like Ryanair either - they wouldn't be my choice to fly, and with LHR being my local airport they're not a convenient option either.

Having said that, putting my industry hat back on, I have to admire them tremendously for what they have done. Many people may not like they're style, but it could be argued that without that approach they would never have become the success they are. For many, many people they have made flying affordable and convenient. As a Cornishman, I know damn well that NQY airport was doing very little until Ryanair came along and showed what could be done. Without that there would likely be no Baby services, flyBe, and with more to come. and other airports can say the same.

But if I had a local airport without a great deal of service and Ryanair came along and announced 12 new routes across Europe, frankly I'd be delighted.

But it is obvious from your posts that there is a lot of sour grapes. Get the chip off your shoulder and lose the attitude, remove the rose tinted specs and then I'm sure you will have plenty of useful comments to offer this forum. You're clearly no fool, but you're doing yourself no favours with the petty comments.
