I'm English by the way.
It's only my personal opinion and I'm very often wrong, but I did bank with the Allied Irish for a good few years, I don't dislike the race in fact I've always had good Irish friends even in the forces, but business! that's a different kettle of fish for sure. :lol:

We flew out with Ryanair on Monday 25th Sept & we fortunately had no problems. My take on this is that i think Mr O'leary has ceated this problem by treating his pilots very badly hence the 140 pilots that have jumped ship & gone to Norwegian Airlines which makes me think how many other pilots have gone to the other airlines of which there are loads. I have used Ryanair for the past 6 years & we have had no problems at all as we do follow their terms & conditions to the letter & we will continue to use them as they are in my opinionthe cheapest carrier out there by a long way.

My son is in the industry and the numbers exiting RYR is alarming appparently. And you are right MO has created this problem. Not sure I agree they are the cheapest though!

We flew Faro - Prestwick today. Had booked December and January flights, Glasgow- Faro, Faro- Glasgow a few days before the farce started. Email today to say January flight cancelled.

I thought the Norwegian airlines exodus was the tip of the iceburg! Its only what we find with Ryanair being the cheapest from our prefered airport which is East Midlands, we use skyscanner etc & regular check all the other budget airlines & they usualy come up cheapest.

we had flights booked for Christmas/new year cancelled yesterday. 2 hours later received a voucher for 80 euros each to spend on flights but guess what not on flights during the Christmas/new year period. :(
