Speaking of tourism, we regularly hear from Ryanair about how their on-time performance is one of the best in the airline industry – though looking at these recent statistics, they’re not all that good at the moment – ranging from 8% (Rome to London) to 93% (Dublin to Cork and Cork to Dublin).
On booking a flight from Dublin to London Gatwick recently, a reader highlighted in an e-mail to us how Ryanair can always improve their chances of being on time. This is the itinerary detail:
From Dublin (DUB) to London Gatwick (South Terminal) (LGW)
Sat, 07Mar09 Flight FR 112 Depart DUB at 08:00 and arrive LGW at 09:30
90 minutes allowed for a flight that normally would take from 50 to 60 minutes – a padding of over 50%.
