Today, 19 February; Ryanair launched a partnership with Vodafone Ireland such that Vodafone will act as a support for the communications and IT needs for the airline across Europe. This includes the ticketing, check-in, ground crew, in flight crew, and pilot systems.
Ryanair will be provided by local and wide area network access, fixed line, mobile including 3G and 4G functionality, and telephone to the 189 locations of Ryanair in Europe and North Africa.
Ryanair’s Chief Technology Officer, John Hurley said:
“Over the last 30 years, Ryanair has revolutionised and democratised air travel for European citizens, growing to become Europe’s largest airline with the widest route network, connecting 189 destinations in 30 countries, through more than 1,600 routes – and all on the lowest fares. As part of our “Always Getting Better” improvement programme, we’re continuing to enhance the Ryanair experience for our 90m annual customers, and this partnership with Vodafone will provide us with the technical support to allow us to make these improvements quickly and seamlessly, including the introduction of paperless cockpits and a swifter inflight sales system.”
Vodafone Ireland Enterprise Director, Anne Sheehan said:

Ryanair is a company that is driving innovative technological solutions in the airline industry and Vodafone is delighted to partner with them to drive this evolution.”
“When I was growing up, I was told a story that explained all I ever needed to know about humanity. It went like this,” says Eric X. Li in today’s provocative talk, given at TEDGlobal 2013. “All human societies develop in a linear progression, beginning with primitive society, than slave society, than feudalism, capitalism, socialism and finally — guess where we end up? — communism.”

Well traditionally you would be expecting me to write a lengthy tutorial on seo, marketing, social media, etc . Sorry to disappoint you. I dont feel like writing on any thing technical. I see many people blogging, many bloggers come in the blogging zone and leave disappointed. Blogging seems more like a war zone 😀 I am a blogger my self, but lets just think Why did i say so?
A perfect example will a non technical person in php, WordPress, Blogging developments etc trying to blog. For instance a poet. That person is actually expected to get confused by reading seo, keywords, sem, social media, etc etc. And what output will he be expecting ? He will have no idea. I personally believe this era is of specialization and many people consider specializing in one field sufficient. I have seen people who have good writing skills but they fail because they have no “computer knowledge”. By computer knowledge am referring to seo, marketing, social media stuff, etc so how can we actually expect them to blog their thoughts to the world.How can they actually get a hundred thousand daily views? If an individual gets 100 he is happy.
Lets see if this helps 😛
I am not posting this to have any hard feelings. Just a thing that came in my mind 😛
