Re: Ryanair to buy Aer Lingus ?

Simple as this , once FR own 51% of Aer Lingus , they can do anything they want , the other 49% cant block anything .

Re: Possible scam with take-off weight at Ryanair

All true , but the german ANO clearly states that the charges should be for the MAX allowable TOW even if flex weights are being used , in this case 74990kgs .

Re: Jetairfly policy towards young pilots

I think its fairly clear , he is pointing out the fact that JAF charge youngsters 25000 for a type rating and then boot them at the end of the summer and then keep hiring new guys for the following summer . Not a very ethical practice by JAF , but why wouldn't they do it if they have enough fools wi...

Re: Legislation on accepting passengers during flight in coc

Passanger , you are talking rubbish , you are referring to totally different area of legislation regarding passenger rights , nothing to do with cockpit access . If a passenger is known to me I can let him on the flight deck , simple as that , as long as I act within any company SOPs or indeed legis...

Re: Legislation on accepting passengers during flight in coc

It's allowed , except in england . Some companies may forbid it by SOP but there is no legislation about it . Why would you complain about this ? Did it affect you ? Did the commander make an unsafe decision ? How do you know it wasn't another member of staff ? or an engineer ? or a member of the CA...

Re: Charleroi Airport (CRL) latest news 2012

This could end up being very bad for Bru Air , in the sense that FR are now in a regional airport and are not really in direct competition with them (IE) FR don't really care about Bru Air , they are too small to bother with so FR just do their thing at CRL regardless of what anyone else does . If h...

Ireland didn't get any aid from anybody , it got a loan , which has so far been paid back as and when it should be including the interest .

Except he didn't have the requirements to be there in the first place , 70 hrs PIC , MEIR and ATPL theory completed . Hence in all likelihood an illegal flight .

Re: Ryanair does maiden flights for poor childeren from CRL

crew 1990 , crawl back in your hole , almost 5 hours of flight for underprivileged kids , there are far cheaper ways to get a bit of publicity than this . FR make large contributions to various charities throughout the year with absolutely no publicity whatsoever .
