With my current position, I have access to samples of ATC recordings, including all the flight plans received by a FIR. Parsing these recordings, I noticed that Ryanair always put the following sentence in both ICAO field F18/RMK and ADEXP field -RMK:

PAX SCHEDULED FLIGHT CONTACT +353 IRISH PHONE NUMBER

Why does Ryanair do that?

Note: the field "flight type" is also filled, and contains the letter S for Scheduled, thus my surprise. Note2: +353 is country code for Ireland where Ryanair is based.

It's a contact number for their "HQ". Putting it in the remarks ensures they are easy to get on the phone if necessary for any issue/emergency.

Regarding the redundancy of putting "SCHEDULED" in the remarks - I assume it's for the same reason - ease of locating information.
