Renegotiation with Boeing

It will be interesting to see what comes of this.

BBC - Panorama

As a matter of interest I see that Panorama [BBC1 news show] is showing a programme about Ryanair on Oct 12th at 20:30. Not sure that they will say much new - MOL will have the final word, stating that if PAX do not like the way he does business, they can eff-off to another carrier [I know that is what I have done]
Going slightly off-thread, the BBC will probably wheel out the infuriating travel journalist Simon Calder [are there no other travel journalists out there?] who will sit firmly on the fence and say absolutely nothing that might upset anyone in the travel business.

Ryanair has had a great deal on the 737s on the basis that MOL took so many at a time when Boeing needed a deal. It was getting them so cheap that he could sell them on after a few years around the price he paid. They will not let him off lightly. MOL cannot keep blackmailing suppiers and then expecting big discounts for his trade. Airports and suppiers should start a MOL markup system that matches how he markes ticket prices work.

I think boeing could invent a few taxes and charges to add to the FR bill.

BBC Panorama has already been attacked on the FR website so it is likely to be a good watch.

Perhaps Boeing should sell him some B737's MOL style, just the hull at a cheap rate then ask him if he wants wings, engines and wheels which are extra's and charge him shit loads!

Or...... Boeing could hold him to the original deal - the airline folds -
Everyone looses their jobs - and MOL crawls back under the
stone he crept out from under - AND the minority of Ryanair bashers
could celebrate from now till kingdom come.

Sorted !!

I am not wishing to see Ryanair go out of business, BUT, you can only be the bully for so long before the the bully gets a slap and is hurt badly. Everybody from A-Z that has dealt with FR has been squeezed, pushed, pulled and bullied by MOL. Its only a matter of time before he gets a major slap from someone. I cant see Boeing bowing to his insane demands.

As long as Airbus doesn't offer them a cheap deal which doesn't look likely given the comments that they have made and what happened when the original 738 order were placed there is no need for Boeing to renegotiate anything unless Embraer build a bigger plane which would be years off.

Flying Ryanair is a bit like shopping at Lidl.

Its cheap, but you you wouldn't tell your friends you use them.

does MOL remind anyone of Gerald Ratner ?

Well Mickyman, I'll tell you mine. Ryanair brought forward the time of my flight home to Spain by two hours without informing me, thus causing me to miss the flight. I had to buy two new tickets for the flight the next day[one for me and one for Mrs Wowzz] plus hire a car for a day in order to stay with relatives over night.
Ryanair desk at STN stated that I had been informed by e-mail of the change in flight time. Two years later I am still waiting for the e-mail to arrive.
As much as anything it was the sheer attitude of the staff that made me angry - it was all my fault and if the e-mail didn't reach me, well that was my problem, not theirs.
Never again!

If that is your experience then fair enough - take your business elsewhere - in your position I would probably be just as agrieved.

Blar Blar Blar, heard it all before .
If you want Lidl try Delta/Northwest B757 MSP-LAS, has to be the oldest A/C I have ever been on, shabby warn fabric seats, all the white overhead bins and window shutters have turned as yellow as Ryanairs bins and where the TV's were there is now white/yellow plastic screwed over where they have been removed, you also have to buy food, the crew were stuck up and the flight went tech for 2.5 hrs.

Give me nice new Ryanair A/C and Ryanair CC with a good ontime record anyday. I love ryanair and what they offer, before you say you get what you pay for your wrong ! I have just payed 20 rtn all in for flights next spring when i looked the week before for the same flight other Airlines wanted 160 rtn to 240 rtn.

So just give it a rest, Im sick to the back teath of all you stuck up I'll never fly Ryanair jokers, please do us all a faver and dont fly Ryanair, I would hate to be sat next to any of you because I know the kind of people you all are, you spend every weekend writing complaint letters to
people that you think are under you ...

If you think Ryanair is bad you should try Gulf Air.

Cabin crew with ATTITUDE, old, tired airplanes, rubbish service, dank food.

Have heard a rumour that Ryanair recently approached Easy with the view to doing some of their maintenance (up to 50 a/c???)
I know Monarch got fed up with them in the early days at LTN but if this is true MOL has got balls.
Can anybody enlighten on this please

Do you mean Easy doing Ryanair 737 maintenance?, can't see that being so as Easyjet have Just awarded a 3 year contract for heavy maintenance of their 737's to KLMuk Engineering at Norwich!

Yeah it was Easy doing maintenance for Ryanair.
Not sure but it may have been "a" checks.I believe at one time recently Ryanair approached Thomson as well who declined.
Just curious if Ryan are looking at alternatves for checks due to their current fleet size .
