Michael O Leary Interview

Mon Aug 14, 2006 4:46 am

This has already been posted in the Irish Aivation Forum Mk9 but I thought I would stick it here aswell as most users would not notice it in its current location.


It basically focus' on FR's operations at DUB and O'Leary's expansion plans. He's on top form as usual!

Interesting that they want to keep raising the checked bag fee.

Does the current no carry on bag rule apply to all flights in the U.K. or just LHR?

He seems quite confident on winning over Aer Lingus in Short Haul.

However I think that No Checked Bags isn't going to work. When we travel as a Family of 5 we have 3 Large Suitcases altogether, sometimes weighing up to 30kg. I personally don't want to be carting that all over the Airport especially if we're running late. How it's going to fit in Overhead Bin is another question!! It can't work.
An Engineer made a bet that a 747 Gear wouldn't retract in a Hangar. He lost the bet.
