New Ryanair boarding passes

Hi,

I booked a flight for an older relative and she can't be persuaded that the boarding passes I printed for her will get her onto the plane.

The ones they had for years has a bit at the bottom that was torn off at the gate.

Can anyone tell me what the story is with the new passes? Do they rip any off the page on the way through? Haven't been on Ryanair since last year myself.

Apologies for the trivial query, but she might give over if I can tell her what will happen at the gate.

Thanks.

Ryanair have stopped the practice of removing the lower half of the boarding pass sometime ago.

Just assure your older relative that the ticket will need to be scanned at the Boarding Channel/Security Gate Area and then at the Boarding Gate (Passport will also be required at Boarding Gate). Similar to what's done at the supermarket check out.

Based on my own personal experience traveling with elderly relatives, could I suggest that you book Fast Track
http://www.dublinairport.com/home.aspx
for you relative to get through the Boarding Channel / Security Gate Area. Depending on the time of day the main Boarding Channel area through to the Security Gate can border on mayhem, this can be quite stressful on an infrequent flyer. Whereas the Fast Track area involves no stress and the staff are most helpful.

You might also contact One Complete Solution, OCS,
http://www.dublinairport.com/gns/at-...-mobility.aspx
these guys offer a great service and if your eldelrly relative is traveling solo, they can act as a travel companion from their office in the main departures area, until your relative boards the flight, including a golf buggy ride out to the Boarding Gates. Cannot recommend their service or their staff highly enough.

Pulled due to poor yield - four airlines on the route and 40 quid return fares booked at close in dates are not good things for profitability.

I was printing a Ryanair ticket this evening and I noted that FR now have a new ticket layout. Well since October when I last flew with them.

A4 page now devided into quarter panels which you simply fold in 4, with the Ryanair blue an yellow bording pass banner to the front. Very handy indeed

NO idea really.
The integration into IAG will be the priority, this could take 12-18 months. IAG want their own set-up in place, then EI need to be proposed as a member, then the existing members have to vote. I guess a lot depends on the existing business model at EI. They have codeshares/interlining agreements with United, OW membership will alter these. Perhaps they will have to wait till these agreements are nearing the end?
I would hazard a wild guess for early/mid 2017 at the earliest.

not sure if I'm asking in the right place so sorry if I'm getting it wrong

heading to melbourne for xmas, going dublin - abu dhabi and then abu dhabi - melbourne. both flights (according to the tickets) are on a boeing 777-300er. aer lingus to Abu dhabi, etihad on to melbourne flying economy for both of them ( )

according to my googlings, both planes should have AC power in economy so I can plug a laptop in for the duration.. does anyone know if this is accurate? one of the websites I checked mentioned something about an rj45 socket for each seat too, does this mean it will have internet?

I've flown once, to portugal on ryanair, in the last ten years so I'm not at all familiar with what is typical on planes these days especially on long flights. sorry if these questions seem impossibly naive

Its called a codeshare. Ticket sold by one airline but operated by another.

Above is correct,

Aerlingus don't fly to Abu Dhabi nor do they have 777's. They flew to Dubai a few years ago in my recollection.

I just read somewhere that passengers travelling on domestic flights from DUB have access to fast track security is this true?
