Hey,

The earlier this week, when our FR plane landed in POZ, they played this loud fanfare and a pre-recorded announcement something like "...another ontime landing by Ryanair!..."

Is there anywhere I can download it? It made us all laugh!

Perhaps search for it on You Tube.

It's been mentioned several times on A.net, although, as you can imagine, not many A.netters appear to like it.  Silly I haven't flown FR since they began it, but it sounds quite funny and an "I'm not surprised" kind of thing.  Wink And why not? If you arrive on time or early - on time performance is a fundamental requirement and a key component in excellent service reliability - why not emphasise it?

Here is one video I took and the Fanfare is towards the end. My last two flights have not had it as we were delayed over an hour.

FR seem to conveniently overlook that the schedules are based on block times and not flight times when it comes to these little announcements  Smile

Every airline has block times - including flight time, time for short delays and taxi times at both airports. If the average flight time on X to Y was 1 hour and you only had 1 hour in the schedules you'd almost always be late. Thus, you add to that taxi time both ends and time for short delays. Thus, you might, depending on the airport, how busy, how long realistically to taxi, likelihood of holding, etc, increase that to 1 hour 25 minutes. It'd be wholly unfair and impractical to just include average flight times.

That shouldn't normally stop them. I hate that stupid recording with a passion, ever since some jerk of a number one FA decided to play it after we had been delayed in RIX for around 15 hours. He clearly thought it was funny, but after the treatment we had all endured he was actually quite lucky not to have been lynched. NOBODY laughed.

Are you sure you weren't just drunk? 15 hours? It ain't Wizz Air you know.  Wink

Quite sure, thank you. We were very drunk the night before arriving at the airport, which made the wait even harsher, but adequate food and drink would have helped ease that. We were supposed to fly out some time late morning. We ended up flying out early the following morning, after a fuel pump had been eventually flown in and fitted. The whole thing truly sucked. They knew we would be there that long, but they still kept us there waiting rather than sleeping in the hotel we so richly deserved.  Smile

So what did you get in the way of compensation then???

Hmm, well I wonder if you can guess? That's right - a big fat nothing. We did ge,t IIRC, €5 worth of food vouchers, but by the time they dished them out (about 5 hours later than they should have done, seeing as they initially told us we would be delayed seven hours and should have given them to us immediately) there was virtually no food available. Crisps and biscuits was about it. As fit (well, fairly fit anyway) young men, this was inconvenient for us. However, in all seriousness, for those older passengers on the flight and people with children it was truly terrible.

Hate the Ryanair jingles.

Two weeks ago flew from STN to HAHN first flight in the morning. I was trying desperately to sleep when in the middle of the flight they played this lousy and long jingle for their raffle... Made everybody angry on the flight...

But can't blame the crew, I know they have instructions...

Either of those options would have been acceptable to me.

There are very often ways around the lack of help, i.e. reaching into your own pocket for a euro or two to purchase food and drink when you're hungry and thirsty. That's what I would have done, and that's why I would not have been hungry or thirsty. Solve the immediate problems and then do the next stuff.

Well obviously, and earlier in the day that's what I did. But, there were some problems which could not be got round - all the food was quickly bought up, and the (very limited range of) shops closed at something like 9 PM anyway. For a large part of the time spent there, food was simply not available. In addition, the estimated time of departure was regularly put back every few hours. Knowing what the problem was and what their plan to deal with it was, there was simply no way I can believe they didn't know it was going to take as long as it did.

It was February 2007. Worst of all, it was a really expensive flight!

I have indeed flown FR a great many times since, mainly due to the fact that personal circumstances deem it necessary. I live too close to STN to use another airport, and the fact is that the vast majority of the time I get a ridiculous cheap fare, flying approximately once a fortnight. Occasionally I treat myself to AB for a change, but only when there's not much difference in the available fare, which unfortunately is rarely.

Yes. I have to be fair - that's the only serious delay I've ever experienced. Recently paid £2.42 each for three return trips.

I'm well of aware of that. What I was getting at was that the jingle announces it's on time arrival when you're not even on stand, merely just landed.
