To get in touch with me, please leave a comment on this page and I’ll make sure to contact you as soon as possible.


  1. Hey, I work with the CheapOair travel blog (cheapoair.typepad.com) and we’re interested in having you guest blog for us. Please contact me if you’re interested. Thanks! Aldo.

  2. Hi there, Ive been writing a paper on the sustainably of the LLC model for university and I have referenced some articles from the blog. I have found it to be an excellent source of up to date information regarding the subject and I would like to thank you.

    Is it possible that I could ask yourself a few questions regarding your opinion on the LLC model, perhaps over phone. I will of course give you full credit within the research paper.



  3. Hey ,

    I am from Hungary I do follow aviation news daily, having written my thesis about it and born to a pilot family. It was quite interesting that last week Ryanair announced its intention to enter the Polish market dominated by Wizz Air on a low cost territory. I am personally proud of the performance of Wizz Air as we are kind of short of success stories like this in Hungary. For me it is no question, that Wizz executives are having dreamless nights now. I have been thinking what should Wizz Air do, and at the end I arrived to the point that one of the most obvious move would be to merge with someone , and I would say the best would be Vueling (same airplane, iberia seems to let vueling go by iberia express, wizz air has lot of plane orders, better costs after merging, and almost perfectly matching network, also as vueling is listed, it could pay with shares for wizz air.) I know some pilot for wizz, they told me that the owners(indigo) has started to look for their returns already, so it could be a good exit for them. They already have two bankrupted airline (Avianova and Mandala) Ok their strategy may not be the same, but as no one knows the financial situation of Wizz , after a heavy attack from ryanair ,I have doubts how long it could make money if it does already. I am planning to write an article about I just would like your opinion about it.

    Have a nice day:


  4. Hello,

    My name is Lucian Preda and I am writing you on behalf of LowCostRoutes. I found your website http://airobserver.wordpress.com/2009/09/18/southwest-and-ryanair-fake-twins-their-future-part-iii/ while searching for interesting travel websites. I think that there is high compatibility between the niche your site is in and the niche my site is in. Therefore, I would like to ask you if you could recommend my website to your visitors in some way (an article, a review, the resource section, or anywhere else you consider suitable) and maybe place a link to my website. I would highly appreciate it.

    I see that the website http://www.whichbudget.com got a link from the above mentioned page of your website. Is there any possibility that you could award us a place on your website as well? I am not asking to be on any specific page, I am only hoping that my website could get a space somewhere on your website.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and if you are willing to consider my request.

    Thank you for your time.

    Have a nice day,

    Lucian Preda

    1. Hi,

      I saw you visited my website (LowCostRoutes.com), and wanted to ask you what do you think about it. Do you consider useful the service I provide? Did you like it?
      I appreciate any kind of feedback, so please feel free to write me back anytime.

      Best regards,

  5. Hello dear Airobserver,
    recently I came across your blog trying to research a bit about Ryanair. They are supposed to start flying to Montenegro soon, so I am making a TV report about it. If you are interested, please contact me.


  6. Dear Sir,

    I am the English editor of the science periodical ‘Academia’, in Bolzano Italy. We would like to use the Ryan Air photo on your home page to run with an article on LCCs. Is this possible, and how might we credit the photo?

    1. Hello sir, all pictures on this blog where found through Google Images and as such I have no particular right over them. I do not know which picture you are specifically referring to but I suggest you should do as I do to find a suitable Ryanair image.

      If your periodical is for-profit and you wish to avoid legal troubles with rightful owners of the pictures you intend to use, I suggest you look for pictures on Plane Spotters and Airliners.net both websites feature a wealth of photographic resources dedicated to airlines and airplanes and, in most of the case, commercial licenses and rightful owners are specified and could help you get in touch with them.

      I hope this has been helpful for you.

      Ps: I would be most interested to read your article on LCCs.

  7. Hi,
    Would you be interested in a partnership? I’m one of the admins for OneTravel.com, and we’re looking to partner with like-minded travel websites to help our online marketing efforts.
    If you agree to this partnership, in exchange for a link to our OneTravel.com website, we’ll offer you a link from one of our sister sites—none of which share the same hosting plan or IP address with each other. Our sites share an average Domain Authority (which is an estimate of true Page Rank) of 32, and we are constantly adding new content. In short, this would be a great partnership for us both.
    Let us know if you’re interested. We can also offer you a testimonial, product review, or a guest blog post.

    Thanks and talk soon,

  8. Hi, I’m a journalist at the Mail On Sunday. Be good to discuss a story with you. Can you send me your details?
    Thanks, Amy

    1. Thanks. Next time, don’t forget to say a little more: your point of view on the matter, whatever it is. Sorry I didn’t answer sooner: your comment was in the spam box.

  9. Hi

    I’ve been keeping up with your site for a while and I’ve been really enjoying some of your posts. I was wondering if you accept guest posts?

    I have a guest post suggestion, entitled “A guide to plane spotting”. If you’re interested about this guest post, please email me back and I’ll happily send it over to you.

    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Jennifer,

      First of all, thanks for keeping up with the blog, it is always a pleasure to know that my work is appreciated.

      As for the guest post, I am sending you a mail to discuss it with you.
      Best regards,

    1. Hi. I’ve noticed your website but I don’t know much about you guys indeed. If I do end up writing an article about you, I’ll get in touch.

  10. Nothing to do with Ryanair but I’m hoping you might be able to help. I’m a retired RAF flier and a very keen bird watcher doing just that in central Spain a short time ago. I witnessed the nearest thing to a self-inflicted disaster and am unable to find any way of communicating with the Spanish Air Force to offer a Flight Safety comment – any suggestions?

  11. Thanks, AO, message sent, to see a jet trainer at about 150 feet flying through a colony of vultures is a bit buttock-clenching, even as a witness, but they were lucky.
