    Default Mail - Ryanair u-turn on runway at Dublin

    'Ryanair, you just screwed everything': What Dublin Airport flight controller told airline after plane forced jets to abort landing | Mail Online

    This appears to be similar to deciding not to take an exit off the motorway and instead do a u-turn.

    More free advertising for O'Leary.

    That must be the only U turn O'Leary has ever been associated with and god help the poor bugger that did it.

    Its not really - because people will read it and think "safety". O'Leary himself has said that Ryanair's share price is more vulnerable to a major accident than anyone else's, and this story is a very low-level manifestation of what can happen in people's minds when they read stuff about Ryanair.

    It seems like quite a one-sided report on the incident. Not much defence or explanation from the Ryanair crew involved.

    Not quite, because at some airports that is exactly what you have to do (eg Knock). Still a potential embarrassment for them though. I agree with poster above - rather a one-sided report.

    Why is a u-turn not called a n-turn?
    I have no money, but I love my life.

    So whats the big deal? No aircraft is ever allowed to land whilst another is on the runway.

    Just another attempt to undermine Ryanair by a British owned jingoistic rag.

    Sounds like they missed the last exit and were backtracking to get clear of the runway as quickly as possible. Presumably no other aircraft could be allowed land while they were on the runway. Report a bit one-sided methinks.
