Yes, I know it is early, but 2013 summer routes are now being announced. This process will continue until 31st December and some routes will only be announced at very short notice.

Meanwhile, various rumours will be spread and others will weep and wail at lost, reduced routes or simply different timings.

Summer flight availability on airline websites does not guarantee flights will take place !

I'll add the info from various airlines as it is confirmed and update the full list around February 2013.

Michael O'Leary's €6.5bn valued Ryanair has held "exploratory" talks with a number of Russian airports as the government has indicated that it may open up its domestic routes to foreign-owned low-cost airlines.

IAG/Iberia intends to acquire Vueling - a Spanish low cost airline - as the consolidation of Europe’s airlines continues.

This latest airline merger mirrors the merger of IAG/British Airways with British Midland (in the UK) in March 2012, Aegean’s recent takeover offer for Olympic in Greece and Ryanair’s offer for Aer Lingus, which is currently being reviewed by the EU Competition Authorities.

IAG’s announcement that it is to cut 4,500 jobs at Iberia further demonstrates the changing landscape of Europe’s aviation industry and the need for continuing restructuring and reform among Europe’s high fares former flag carriers who, like Aer Lingus, cannot survive as independent airlines.

Ryanair changes booking T&C, or not ?

RYANAIR INTRODUCES 2% CREDIT CARD FEE TO COMPLY WITH UK OFT RULING

Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline, today (28 Nov) announced that in order to comply with the UK Office of Fair Trading’s recent ruling on credit card fees it will introduce an avoidable 2% credit card processing fee on all new credit card bookings made from 30 November, to cover credit card payment costs.

Ryanair’s 2% credit card fee can be avoided by using debit cards (including Ryanair Cash Passport cards) or German ELV transfer.

In addition, Ryanair’s €6/£6 admin fee (which covers costs associated with Ryanair’s website, www.ryanair.com) will apply to all new bookings made from 30 November, except those bookings made using a Ryanair Cash Passport in Ireland, Germany and Spain, where admin fees can be avoided until 1 February, 15 February and 21 March 2013, respectively.

This will bring all of Ryanair’s European operations in line with its UK procedures, following the OFT’s ruling.

I notice it says " knives with a blade of 6cm"; does that mean that my tiny Swiss Army knife (blade and nail file 3cms in length) is safe from confiscation?

Knowing the jobsworths on Security - I doubt it!

Ah, well I rather thought I was using a standard English expression (from my long ago days at Grammar School) and that your phraseology, utilising quasi-modernist, adopted Liverpudlian slang, was deployed ironically.

Perhaps you did really mean it after all, hmm . . .

(Prithee, I tender you no offence, sirrah)

Trying to be polite, but all of that could no doubt be gleaned from a reading of p2 of their annual report.

Presumably what you haven't mentioned is the slap up food and wines :)
