How to always be on time – the Ryanair way!

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%.

  • You’ll be hoping they might go faster in future. Given their recent publicity hungry announcements, holding a number 1 or number 2 longer than 50 minutes could be mighty uncomfortable.

    Could end up like the rivers of poo that happened on Jet Blue planes in America last year 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Oh Oh Oh. Maybe there’ll be a soiling charge like in Taxis as well now too….

  • @DeclanH – Thanks for the comments Declan. A more cynical observer would say that Michael O’Leary was using this comment to distract from the publicity received over the comment about bloggers and Ryanair staff comments posted on a website.

    I don’t think they’re going to go ahead with it, but it’s good to hear on RTE1 on Friday that they’ve got the tacit approval of the Consumers Association of Ireland.
