Ryanair ordered 747s for the service? All economy layout of about 600 seats perhaps?  Wink

Codeshare with another carrier? Short-term lease? Practical joke?

Oh NO! That would be hell. I can barely stand being on an FR B737 never mind a B747. Oh, but maybe a Ryanair first class with a PTV and decent service, anyone else think so  Wink

I think it might just be a picture put up by the airline as I have seen that somewhere before (can't remember where or what airline) but Ryanair usually do use a picture of a 737 on their adverts so there might be a Ryanair 747,  scared

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Exactly, the PAX will be packed in LD-3s  Smile I hope MOL doesn't see this thread or he just may do it.

Just when I thought FR service couldn't get worse, they figure out a way!  Smile

God knows if the concept of standing PAX that was dreamed up but canceled by airbus ever went into effect they we'd see a A380-900 for ryanair with 1000 PAX all paying 10 bucks for a flight and 20 bucks for pop.

Well that doesn't make sense anyhow, as they haven't even announced a LPA service?? I personally can't see FR filling 747's to Fuerteventura, and probably not Los Rodeos either? and Im sure he'd use a 747 as an opportunity to start transatlantic flights?

Too bad they can't squeeze 9 abreast into A330, otherwise he could get nearly 500 seats in there  Smile

Ryanair. They make Southwest feel like first class.




I'd imagine the way ryanair packs people into jets, they could get like, 650+ easy into a 744. I'd love to see it.... probably not fly on it though. Can you imagine deplaning? Baggage claim?

Too bad MoL hates airbus, we could see like 900 people on the Ryanair A380 ..... whenever Toulouse gets the kinks worked out.

FR's legroom is better than most UK charter airlines' and better than U2's legroom on its 737s. Naturally, they aren't mentioned. Moreover, I am just over 6' and have no problem whatever; indeed, I am confortable.

Not a question of hatred. It's a question of securing the best deal.

Why stop at that? You have a nice cargo hold and you can always make use of that above-ceiling space, oh, and don't forget the aisles! It will be like Operation Solomon!

If EK can squeeze in 3-4-3 in a 777, I'm sure MOL wouldn't have a problem with 9 (or 12) abreast in a 330....

I don't think the A380 is FR-airport "material"... I'd like to see an A380 maneuver around at MON... (Middle Of Nowhere)

I must admit this was a fun thread to read. Perhaps MOL may want to consider a new motto for FR "Ryanair -- the airline everyone loves to hate!"  yes

Not at all. I am used to arguing in my career (law).

I find it very funny how a lot of self-confessed aviation fans completely disregard the truth in favour of nonsense when discussing FR. The truth is, they prefer the old times when you had to pay a lot for the priviledge of flying. Sadly, they can't accept that times have changed - in responce to both consumer demand and the fact that airlines have to be profitable (unlike when they were owned, run and financed by governments). Hence, they'll always moan about things which the vast majority of normal customers view as being perfectly fine - as evidenced by statistics from independent reports.

People are shocked that an airline which transformed European aviation is so successful. It is, I believe, a lot about jealousy.

I can vouch for that. A friend is 22 stone and about 6.4 feet. He regularly flies FR and says that he can comfortably sit in FR (and not the emergency exit rows) whereas on the majority of other airlines his knees are normally pressing against the seat in front.

Simple explanation. They love to mock FR because they are jealous of its success.

This is Spain, where paying for a professional graphic designer or photo copyrights are a thing of science fiction. Someone just nicked a bad computer rendering of a 747 and texture mapped the harp on it.
