Cork - New York (Ryan International)

Post by danelane2000 »

The scheduled flights with ryan international, due to start in October have been stopped, 96fm cork say it was due to the ticket prices being too high and it was not competitive. This is bad news as i was ment to be flying out on the first flight OCT31st ..

ah well,

Slattery's have cancelled all flights due to a 96euro fuel surcharge per person. Slattery's say they will reconsider doing the flight if the fuel surcharge comes down.

Ryanair have also announced officially a new Cork-Dublin route twice daily, and that they are launching Cork as their 15th Base.

Bye Bye Aer Arann :(

I knew Ryanair were considering that route, but I didn't think they'd do it for certain. Yep, Aer Arann will be slaughtered.

Eesh I can't believe slattery's have cancelled the JFK-ORK flights. My aunt was pretty much prepared to depend on them over the next few years - it meant so much that she could fly right into Cork and not into SNN or DUB and have to hire a car for the few days.
The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no.

Made a slight mistake there.

Ryanair are doing 3daily flights Cork-Dublin, and twice daily to Gatwick. All routes starting 24/11.

Bye Bye EasyJet :cry:

If EZY can stay on NOC-LGW, surely they can stay on at Cork?

I dunno steve, but what I do know is he is going to mangle Aer Arann, sure they depend on the cork - dublin route, there is 5+ a day (i think)

IF he starts up offering flights for ?5 and ?15 or whatever he was offering, who are people gonna choose?

Ah well,

In the Indo MOL said he was not going after the Business pax, like REA have, but more the average person, as timings for REA suit the Business market.

RE are 9/weekday which is why the biz pax will be slow to leave them as they offer more flexibility - but if FR get Cat II approaches going RE will have to follow suit - fast.

yea they have some aircraft that are equiped but the crew have to be cat2 trained as well so that maybe their reasoning that they cannot fly cat2 approaches.

I would be suprised if there was a delay in implementing it because of crew certification, its not something that takes much time. If there was a delay getting the Ok from the IAA that would make more sense.
