So everyone has a retro plane nowadays, and I was wondering if Ryanair would consider doing the same. The colors they had in their beginnings, applied to a 737-8AS, I think it would be quite nice... has anyone ever photoshopped this to get an impression of what it would look like?

Well, they are only 26 years old so I guess there is not much point doing it just yet.

Maybe for the 40th Birthday, it would indeed be a good idea.

Maybe they will just add another £1 fee per booking to cover the costs of a retro plane....

Or do the sneaky thing like BA and up the fuel surcharge?

Nah - if you turn up at the airport and your scheduled aircraft is the retro aircraft, that'll be another £5 per person or you can't travel...

I think their schemes have been horrible up until this current one, Insted they should do logojets again because that Jaguar 732 was sweet as!!!

And the Eircell "Ready to Go" colour scheme lasted longer than the actual company Eircell did! Isn't it still used by the fire brigade at Dublin?

I'm surprised Ryanair don't still do their logojets, considering they're always looking for ways to make money. The amount recieved from a company to paint one of their 737's in their coporate colours surely outweighs the cost of fuel for the extra few Kg of paint.


Can you say 'Beer Can' without sounding like a Jamaican saying 'Bacon'?

Now now dont get drawn into the constant trolling, Just enjoy your cheap on time FR flights and let everybody else cry if it means so much to them.
