Is this letter true or fake?
(A friendly remark for JAT, Barcode, Donder10 and Mariner.
) Grammar and tone of the letter are not very good English: Well, English is not my mothertongue and I have to admit that I would probably not have been able to write it better. The fact that "incidents" in Hahn (Germany) are mentioned a few times makes me suppose that the author might be a German or Dutch pilot flying out of Hahn and English only his second language!
I think that this letter might be written by a handful of worried F/o's and captains who are afraid of loosing their job and want to stay absolutely anonymous and for that there is no better medium to use then an internet forum!
My guess would be that this letter is genuine, although of course I can't be sure. Anyway, I think it deserves attention and the allegations should be checked by the authorities.
There is a Dutch idiom stating "If there's a lot of smoke, there is probably a fire".
Well, there sure are a lot of rumors about Ryanair lately. I think the "fire brigade" should go to Ryanair just to make sure it not burning.
