Looking at the timetable for the first week in August 2016, I reckon there are 256 weekly departures by Ryanair, which I think is an increase from about 218 in S2015.

Of those 256, something like 114 are by non-based a/c, or c 45%. DUB accounts for 34 of the non-based (the 17.35 flight appears to be with a based a/c). Nevertheless, even with one or two early arrivals from the likes of DUB and SNN, it must be very helpful to MAN that all the double daily Faro and Malaga services for example operate with non-based a/c, given the constraints of T3. If say only DUB were non-based, at least 12 a/c would be needed meet the rest of the program.

One oddity. Although 8 a/c are required for the first wave of departures on Mon-Thurs (and probably Sun if the 08.00 to Bratislava is a based a/c), I could only find 7 based required on Fri and Sat. Can anyone confirm, and if so, does 1 a/c get moved somewhere else for those 2 days or is it just a gap in the scheduling?
