    The guy is deplorable, shocking and a cancer to the industry.
    This will affect his management crednetials and hopefully the board et al will start to oust this guy.

    The IAA, CAA, EASA should really be looking into the safety aspects of this airline and i really want the British Government to put substantial pressure on the Irish Government to make the IAA investigate Ryanair from a safety perspective and publish the results - thus affecting his credentials even more.

    The pilots on the other hand should stop been generous and gestures of good will. Work to rule - don't do a thing till 45 minutes till departure, ensure every single load sheet is checked to the enth degree etc. I'd also suggest a UK wide 'sickness and fatigue' report day where all pilots report sick or fatigued. That would bring the Ryanair UK network to a halt and would put even more substantial pressure on him.

    What really upsets me is that they cannot legally strike like TCX can as they don't have a union. The above is a strike but the above is a cheap strike as such.

    Just as a comparison in models; Southwest Pilots contributed to the Herb Kheller retirement funds when he retired.

    I've heard elsewhere that the pilots are working to rule as well. With the sad demise of Monarch and the likes of TUI, Jet2, EZY and TCX expanding to fill the void left by them there will be jobs out there. I've seen an advert for TUI UK advertising for pilots all types and unrated as well.

    Ryanair's past routes

    We sometimes comment on the fact that Ryanair seems to have stagnated at BRS to a degree. New routes do come but the overall progress is not great. I've had a look at Ryanair's activities at BRS in terms of routes tried and then axed.

    The context is that in the winter of 2007-2008 Ryanair opened a base at BRS which within a year or two became five aircraft. Prior to the base Ryanair served BRS on three routes for a number of years from other bases, viz Dublin (by far the longest standing), Girona and Shannon.

    The below routes have come and gone.

    Derry 2007-2008

    Dinard 2007-2008, was shown as reinstated in summer 2012 schedule but then withdrawn before season commenced

    Grenoble 2008-2009 (winter ski season only), now operated in winter ski season by easyJet

    Katowice 2007-2009, 2011-2014, now operated by Wizz Air

    Salzburg 2007-2008 (winter ski season only), now operated in winter ski season by easyJet and TUI

    Turin 2007-2009 (winter ski season only), now operated in winter ski season by easyJet and TUI

    Szczecin (Stettin) 2008-2009, 2013-2014

    Shannon 2005-2010

    Cagliari* 2009, now operated by bmi regional as summer charter

    Eindhoven 2009

    Pau 2007-2009

    Perpignan* 2009

    Montpellier* 2009

    Toulon* 2009

    Trieste* 2009

    Bydgoszcz** 2010

    Bratislava 2007-2014

    Rimini 2009-2010

    Porto 2008-2010, now operated by easyJet

    Belfast City 2009-2010

    Marrakech 2009-2011, now operated by easyJet but route is shortly to be discontinued

    Seville 2009-2011

    Riga 2007-2012

    Lodz 2012-2013

    * routes operated for a single summer (2009) during the height of the recession which is the only year in the past 21 that BRS has seen a fall in annual passenger numbers.

    ** Bydgoszcz was new for summer 2010 but operated for just two months (May and June) before being axed with load factors of 61% and 71% respectively. Given that Bratislava was axed with regular monthly load factors well into the 90s% perhaps this is no surprise. As aways yield is the key.

    In addition to the above, current routes to Budapest, Gdansk and Reus have come and gone in the past, to be reinstated again.

    Valencia was switched to Castellon in 2015 and Treviso was switched to Venice MP in 2016

    Base commenced November 2007 although three routes - Dublin, Girona and Shannon - had been operating from other bases before that.
