Re: Ryanair in 2018

Still if crews are unable to book a hotel themselves (off season - there are plenty) and to get to it, maybe they are not qualified (read too stupid) to work at all at any job. They are adults, they should be able to look after themselves at least a tiny bit and be able to find a bed. This is not sa...

Re: Ryanair cancels 2,100 flights in Sep-Oct 2017, and 18,000 more in Nov 2017-Mar 2018

Ryanair has already said that it does not recognise the validity of the Court case in Belgium: its general conditions say that only Irish courts are competent. And I think they are right. But I do not see this as a problem. At least here it is easier to go after foreign company in foreign court usi...

When Ryanair says Eilat, they mean Ovda (LLOV/VDA), which is much further away from the Red Sea! Hence, Brussels-Eilat means Charleroi-Ovda.
Ovda (VDA) will be closed and new Ramon (ETH/LLER) airport will be opened before new routes start.

Re: Cancelled services and discontinued routes in 2017

Transavia stopped selling Eindhoven-Innsbruck for summer season. They were available to book a few weeks ago. Looks like the route will remain seasonal winter only instead of year round as in the past.

Re: 2 new Brussels Airlines destinations: Vilnius and Seville

The schedule to Vilnius looks like a schedule to a leisure destination and completely misses business travelers need to go to Brussels in the morning and return to Vilnius in the evening. So the travelers with most spending power will still have to chose indirect flights. The schedule with a night s...

Why nothing?
I read on a.net that employees are promised unemployment benefits of 80% of their present salary for 7 years.
