My single 261 experience with Ryanair a few months ago just required a single email to get payment. I was also properly informed of my rights at the gate (4 hour delay), where I also got a food voucher.

Earlier experiences with Swiss and Lufthansa all escalated to a letter threatening legal action. Absolutely no information about my rights (last minute cancellations both times).
Thank you md11, that's indeed how simple the process at FR is. You fill in a form on the airlines website and you will get what you are entitled to. Only when there is doubt about the reason or credibility will the airline refuse, like every other airline

Hi,

Okay here mine :

FR : filled in form on website, get mail back to post them all info to an adress in dublin, then got a mail back with lots of blabla, no payment altough I was in right, flight cost : 15 euro return,...
Info and foodcoupons received !
Only court should have give me a payment after years I guess....

EU should punish them in these situations with immediate effect,... IMHO...
Let an independent airspecialist decide and let them pay direct so they should go to court for getting their money back :lol: :evil: :evil:

SN : info given, foodcoupons and payment without asking, immediately given with an extra smile ! Best handling of this situation ever !
BA : info given, foodcoupons received and after 3 emails and last one with referring to my lawyer, immediately payment...
Etihad Regional / Darwin : NO info Given ! Foodcoupons given and also 3 emails with reffering to lawyer immediate payment ( within 24 hours ! )

A real direct FR solution is more a rarity instead af a daily case ...
But as long as their fares are bottom low people will take it, altough they shouldn't !

Hi,

Wanna fly cheap to Catania without 2-3 hours wondering around FCO ?

Just fly FR from EIN !! 0,5 driving more I guess but direct flights ! ( 3 times weekly )
SN is a lot more expensive and only 2x a week I guess, also combined with Comiso.. or Catania South :lol: !

Alitalia had the best cards here but more expensive and as even the pope won't pray for them anymore :mrgreen:

FR from EIN I always ( yearly ) do :p LOL

What some here claimed that it would never happen, has happened.
Ryanair is starting to sell long haul flights to Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico and the United States through it's website. Air Europa is the first airline to partner with Ryanair and in the second phase later this year passengers will be able to connect from a Ryanair flight on a air europa long haul flight. Again, this move by Ryanair will re-shape the current aviation landscape in Europe drastically I predict and some CEO's of competitors are starting to show brake tracks in their pants

Strange and unexpected. Discussions were ongoing with Norwegian and Aer Lingus, and at the end of the day, it's Air Europa which comes out first, when nobody even knew that Ryanair was discussing with them.

I'd be curious to see the details of the contract, and who will pay the EU261 compensations in case of a delay.

I'm also curious to hear what Michael O'Leary will have to say in Brussels this late afternoon ;)

I'm sure the other Skyteam partners will love this!
Bye bye Air Europa in BRU? Or will they only allow FR to feed from other destinations?
It's a proof all airlines evolve to the same model: hybrid: just as in the USA...
Just as André, I'm very curious what will happen in case of a delay...
- Who pays the compensation?
- What will happen with you in high season on an airliner that is so proud of its 95% load factor? Pay him a hotel for 3 days? Book them on IB?
- What will the the impact of all this on FR's cost structure?

See where I've flown at OpenFlights!

During the press conference in Brussels this afternoon about the Ryanair partnership with the Erasmus Student Network (http://www.luchtzak.be/airlines/ryanair ... t-network/), Michael O'Leary answered a few questions about other topics:
  • Air Europa: Many people were surprised about the announcement. They thought Ryanair would first sign with Norwegian. The deal with Norwegian is ready, bur Norwegian uses the expensive Amadeus booking system, whereas Ryanair uses a much cheaper one which is incompatible. This technical problem must first be resolved
  • Connections in Rome: The minimum connecting time (MCT) is two and a half hours in order not to leave anyone behind (he didn't say in order to avoid EU261 compensations). When the system will be thoroughly tested, the MCT could be reduced to one and a half hours.
  • Brexit: MOL expects a hard Brexit, with consequences on aviation, i.e. no bilateral agreements. If no deal is signed, Ryanair will move its 40 British-based aircraft to Europe (and also the crews, which is more difficult)
  • Alitalia: if the airline ceases activities, Ryanair could immediately move 20 aircraft from all over Europe to Italy to replace 50% of the Alitalia short-haul flights, and in the longer run, 30 aircraft. But MOL expects Alitalia to survive, at least for long-haul
  • Brussels noise regulation: no departures before 07:00, which means maximum 4 aircraft based in BRU because of the lack of slots between 07:00 and 08:00 and any expansion would be in CRL
