Well, the bmi board have UK trains pretty much wrapped up, so it only seems fair that we get the LCCs!!

One has heard of a LCC, but one is not sure what a LCC is? One hopes it is not something assocated with the lower classes... One does not want that sort of person frequenting our upper class board...

Indeed I find an increasing number of posts on this board on all manner of topics with which I cannot (and do not wish to ) relate to.

Moderator Action

If our beloved TalkBoard representative wishes to go for adding a Ryanair Forum, can I be the Moderator please?

At least it would be somewhere to go without having to consider "how do I get a free upgrade" threads.

I guess the seatmap questions would be somewhat fewer in number too!

What no seatshifting compliants?

No threads on the Champagne served in F or the lounge?

After all, has anybody else actually read the Ryanair Ts and Cs of carriage?

Agreed, but most of the chatter on FT does seem to be among people who mostly frequent the BA board which is why I suggested this. I'm not sure I could read a Liar Air forum - at least the positive stuff about BA drowns out the wailing and gnashing of teeth about Ryanair here .

Edited because post suggested that people who fly Ryanair hunt whales!

Well, someone actually has to suggest it into the TB forum, TB has no say on moderation issues... and to be honest, I'd probably vote against a FR forum just because I hate them that much

Internaut - I'm sorry, we don't have a tongue-in-cheek smilie

May be we need a T3 Forum, and a BE Forum, and ban all discussion on the BA Forum (of which there has been plenty of late)?

Oh, and a WOW Forum. Not only because WOW sounds so...well...wowwwwww, but also there may be question on the former BA route to PLH/NQY.
