Beware The Irish Of March: Thread 12/08!

Forsooth, hark, 'tis another thread of Irish aviation, methinks ...

Welcome all to 12/08 and hope you're all safely wrapped up and out of the bad weather ... I was going to go with "Lining up on 10", but with a 50 knot westerly, it just didn't seem appropriate!

So, what's new? Well, the Summer season should be upon us fairly soon (feels like it, doesn't it!) and despite the bad omens and the prophets of doom, traffic is still in an upward climb, of around 12-15%, so let's hope that continues.

The highlight of this thread will, no doubt, be Aer Lingus's 2007 results, to be announced on Wednesday; I don't know when the shareholders' meeting to discuss the results will be, but I'd love to be a fly on the wall - or better still, a shareholder. Europe seems to be holding its own and despite a shaky start, BFS seems to be working reasonably well. Let's hope it continues; the big worry will of course be the long haul and the strategy there - in almost every respect, from fleet update, to product quality and network expansion - needs to be the focus of some consideration.

Well, what else is to look forward to, apart from Summer weather?

FR's fleet is still expanding, with the the first of the 'DYx series already in service and more to come over the next few weeks, along with more ATR72s for Aer Arann and (secondhand) RJ85s for Cityjet. Have they now got rid of all of their 146-200s?

Zounds! Alarum and general commotion; the time has come ...

No, a number of 146-200s are still around. In the last few days I have seen -200s EI-CMS, 'CNB and 'PAT and also EI-DEX, a 146-300, in Dublin. Latest RJ-85 to join the fleet is EI-RJL, which appears to have entered service at the beginning of March.

Thanks, Irish251!

Looks as if the DAA has reintroduced its incentive scheme for non-EU routes; transport minister ND said he wants to see more long haul flights to DUB, with the airport becoming a hub for flights to the US. Probably a bit late for that particular hope, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

Well it's about half way between Ireland West (NOC) and Galway (GWY). They could be travelling up from SNN though, which is about a 2 hour drive I think.

Well if wants to fly to Ireland from the US, SNN is definitely her best option with CO routing PIT-EWR-SNN or DL routing PIT-JFK-SNN. There are regular bus services from Shannon to Galway (Citylink & Bus Eireann) & from Galway to Cong, which is pretty close to Ashford Castle.

As for the closest airports to Ashford Castle then GWY & NOC are much closer but there are no convenient connections from the US to either of these airports. If she would prefer NOC then I would reccomend CO routing PIT-EWR-LGW & then JN (XL Airways) from LGW-NOC. If she would prefer GWY, then I would reccomend CO routing PIT-EWR-DUB or DL routing PIT-JFK-DUB & then RE from DUB-GWY. I'm sure there are more options but these are just the ones that come to mind.

There should be a list of people who do things like this that is circulated to every airline so that if one of them turns up at an airport trying to get on a plane, then they can be easily identified & denied boarding.

I wouldn't be surprised to see FR in court yet again on this one. Mind you, it couldn't be much more offensive to the "no taxes" one that had the picture of Bertie drinking a cup of tea.

It looks like FR are spitting fire over a whole range of issues.

Firstly it is the fact the the CAA has allowed the DAA to increase it's rental of check-in desks. FR quote a cost increase of €8,000 pa per desk.

Also, with the UK CAA also allowing increase in charges in LHR and LGW, FR are not too happy about that.
Also as the BAA plan to show off their plans for the 2nd runway in STN, I am sure they will increase charges there also which will again give rise to FR opening a war of words.

And if they was not enough for them, The EU are to investigate FR's agreement with BTS.

My god FR's lawyers must be spending their bonuses already!!!!

There is no clear answer to this. You just need to check both each time and see who gets the best price for you. For flights outside of Europe to USA/Australia/Far East etc... often agents can be cheaper. Try Club Travel in Dublin they always seem to have good fares and also Abbey Travel for Australia.

An FR lawyer must be a really well paying job with all these legal cases. I wonder how much FR spend every year both taking legal cases agiainst things like airport charges increases & also defending themselves against the likes of the EU commission.

They probably hammer their lawyers on fees though. I would not like to work for the firm that represents FR.

I agree with Philip on this one. When there was still access to SABRE it was great to be able to pull out all sorts of routings and combinations, etc and then port over to the airlines website to get a rough idea at the prices. It was a very useful tool for flights outside of Ireland! amadeus.net and seatcounter.com offer this kind of functionality, but they are a lot slower, being web based.

Generally once I have done this I would go to a local consolidator/travel agent and see what they offer. For long distance fares trailfinders have beaten the web three years running. Well worth a look, with excellent serviceand the agents have travelled extensively, so they know what they are talking about, unlike at some of the "travel shop" type establishments..... For European flights the web is probably your best bet unless you have ticketing privileges in a GDS even then I'd say you would match it, at best!

Ryanair are back in court - what a surprise - this time over Bratislava airport.

http://www.ireland.com/newspaper/breaking/2008/0311/breaking43.htm

EC investigating Ryanair agreement

The European Commission has opened a formal investigation into an agreement between Ryanair and Bratislava airport, which it says may breach state aid rules.

A complainant has alleged that the airport offers Ryanair reduced airport charges for existing destinations and new scheduled flights. The agreement was allegedly made in December 2005 for a period until 2016.

The reduction could be as high as a 31 per cent discount for existing destinations and a 48 per cent discount per flight for new scheduled destinations, the commission said.

"At this stage, in spite of its requests, the commission has not been provided with the text of the agreement."

The commission has requested that document as well as the necessary information to carry out its assessment pursuant to EU State aid rules.

"The commission's decision to investigate requires the airport to submit a copy of the agreement to it. So far the airport has refused to comply with this request. Without access to this document, and on the basis of the information provided by the complainant, the commission has doubts about its compatibility with EU rules on State aid."

In a statement, Ryanair claimed the European Commission was "biased" in applying "one set of rules for high-fare flag carriers and another set of discriminatory rules for Ryanair".

"The Commission's investigation is based on a spurious complaint [by a competitor] in order to block competition from Ryanair and Bratislava airport," Ryanair said, adding that the investigation was "completely baseless".

"While the Commission responds rapidly to these baseless complaints from Competitor airlines/ airports, it is doing nothing at all to investigate and address the serious multi billion euro state aid subsidies to flag carrier airlines (Air France, Alitalia, Lufthansa and Olympic)," Ryanair said.

"The European Commission's lack of action over these serious state aid cases, has now forced Ryanair to take separate cases against the Commission in the European Court of First Instance, to compel the Commission to apply its own state aid rules fairly and without discrimination against Ryanair."

I see that the UK CAA has given heathrow permission to increase charges by 17% in landing charges. Meanwhile in ireland we expect the DAA to develop Dublin with no increase in landing charges until 2012.

Perhaps this is why Dublin is creaking at the seams - it costs money to develop. Does O'leary carry too much weight in deciding how much the landing charges are?
