Ryanair Flight Changes

Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline today announced a series of minor modifications to its flight schedule during the months of September and October arising from delays in the delivery of seven aircraft which were scheduled to be received in September and October, but are now not expected to be delivered until November and December.

Boeing, Ryanair’s aircraft supplier have experienced work stoppages since early September. Ryanair is now assuming that these disruptions will continue until at least the end of October. There is every possibility that the dispute at Boeing may be resolved earlier than this date, however Ryanair is keen to give passengers the maximum degree of notice, and has therefore taken the following steps with regard to its September/October flight programme:

Three of the 737-200 series aircraft which were due to be retired in September will continue in service until the end of October.

2. The new base launches in Liverpool and Pisa, both of which are scheduled to commence on 27th September and 10th October will proceed as normal with Ryanair using a new 737-800 which was delivered by Boeing in early September, and also using one of the three spare 800’s for the month of October.

3. Approximately 200 flights (representing less than 1%) have been amalgamated during the month of October. Ryanair expects that the financial impact of the amalgamations will be immaterial in both the third quarter and in the full year results.

Ryanair will continue to liaise closely with Boeing as the dispute evolves through the remainder of September and into October. If there is a likelihood of the dispute continuing into November, Ryanair will make an early decision and ensure that all passengers are notified of any schedule changes during the first week of October if at that time it is expected that the impact will continue into November.

As always Ryanair’s primary objective is to provide our customers with as much advance notice as possible of these minor schedule alterations, whilst at the same time fully supporting our partners Boeing as they work with their people to resolve the current dispute and resume delivering the world’s best aircraft to the world’s favourite international airline.

That read all very reasonably - until that absurd last paragraph!

Ever heard of talking yourself up. Ryanair are the experts at that and fair play to them. If you have the balls to say it then why not.

And, just for whom was this missive intended? Being a pilot rumour network forum, was this supposed to offer any real meaningful information? Perhaps it could be that the aeroplane you have been recruited to fly will arrive a few weeks later than planned. In which case so will your pay slip.

Who mentioned anything about the truth. BA have been peddling the same stuff for years "Worlds favourite etc". Fair play to them for saying it eventhough its never been true.

"On every major issue your solidarity forced Boeing to change their offer. We have shown the American people we can stand up and get a multi-national corporation to do the right thing." Such is the primal language of victory emanating from Boeing's Machinists Union, which has hammered out a tentative agreement with the company's commercial airplane division after 24 days of industrial strike action.

Thousands of machinists will vote Thursday on whether to approve the new three-year deal, though the union's foremen are counseling its 18,400 members to accept the agreement, saying it will address key issues including health care premiums and pension payouts. The union has reportedly won a pension payout increased to $70 per month for every year worked, removed all takeaway proposals on healthcare and ensured retiree medical benefits stay the same as the current contract, amongst other major issues.

So, the crisis (for FR) seems over...

O'Leary doesn't want to deal with unionised pilots. Wonder how he feels about buying union built aeroplanes?!

One would assume that there are late delivery penalties built into the contract, so Ryanair will be rewarded financially at Boeing's cost?
