I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable getting onto a plane with a pissed off pilot who's employer had taken his union to court to stop him striking for better pay and conditions.

Pilots need to be in top mental and emotional condition when responsible for hundreds of passengers, but how can episodes like this be good for pilot mental health?

Not specifically Ryanair, but God forbid any airline has another Andreas Lubitz who is closer to breaking point than people think.

When it comes to pilot and passenger welfare, stories like this really don't help.
Actually Ryanair has a terrific safety record

Government is trying to make sure that we increase our carbon emissions so that they can charge us more carbon taxes.

So while Leo Varadkar is pontificating about climate responsibility in New York, another member of his cabinet is saying that he wants to almost double the numbers of passengers going through Dublin Airport:

Transport Minister Shane Ross said that long term plans for Dublin Airport need to be made as airport terminals take a long time to devise, construct and complete.

He said: “We’re looking to 2050. Planning for airports is very long term. We’re expecting an explosion in Dublin Airport to over 60 million by 2050."


This is a very simple decision for government to make: stop the expansion plans of Dublin Airport. That would send a strong message on climate change. The Irish branch of IAG wants to massively increase pollution in Dublin because it's parent company is running out of capacity at it's main hub in Heathrow, But our national carbon emissions policy should not be dictated by IAG.

For government to increase carbon taxes on ordinary citizens while presiding over a doubling of the numbers passing through Dublin airport is hypocritical in the extreme.

And Dan Boyle is calling for more cycle lanes.

Green Party?

Yeah

Right.


Can anyone shout stop?

Anyone?

Let's just use airports to get to and from foreign countries.

Let's not go to New York and talk about abandoning oil exploration off our coasts, and ringfencing carbon taxes to use on carbon reduction programmes while at the same time actively promoting Dublin Airport as a European hub airport for connecting to the US.


Traffic from Dublin airport is projected to double as UK Airline company, IAG, uses it's Irish arm, Aer Lingus, to take pressure off its main hub at London Heathrow. It is also using regional airlines such as Stobart Air to funnel passengers from Airports like Manchester and East Midlands to Dublin for onward connection on single aisle aircraft to the US.
