Really dumping up the fleet age in DUB. Any idea if they'll be flying set routes?
They won't be around for to long, think its mainly peak season.

Looking at it logically it would suggest that its likely to be Dub-UK routes as means they can provide line maintenance support at one or two airports rather than spreading it across the network.
Could be however such large amounts of UK flights are not DUB based. Would expect they will operated on routes according to supply/demand over their time here.

Any particular reason they picked 400s over 800s?

Are they going to bother with painting if they only have them for a few months? Given the loco ethos I'm guessing they will be white tails?

I should like to express my gratitude to everyone in Ryanair for the smooth termination yesterday, 28th March, 2014, of two profitable routes at Cork Airport.

Warsaw and Krakow operated without hitch from Cork for the last fifteen or sixteen months and after a month or two of sluggish loads before Wizz Air's departure from Cork in early 2013 loads and yields grew dramatically and the two routes to Warsaw and Krakow were amongst the best Ryanair destinations from Cork.

Taking the above into account and bearing in mind the strong market for Polish routes from Cork Airport going back over many years Ryanair terminated the two routes from Cork yesterday.

The Lo Co`s are all ruthless. Obviously there wasn`t enough yield on the routes, despite maybe full loads. When that happens the routes get chopped. Its a way of life for them

Incorrect. They were there best yielding routes ex-Cork.

Do you mean the best load factors or best profit? the two are not the same.

The flights can be full, but if no one is buying any if the optional extras, the flight won't make any profit

ORK-KRK, ORK-WMI were dropped by FR to try get Cork management to lower overall fees for future expansion, they did not agree so Ryanair switched the routes at lower frequency to SNN. The routes were operating above 90%, and were in the top 4, FR Cork yielding routes. KRK was profitable at day one, WMI followed when W6 left Cork.

Any one knows how many a/c are based at each base across Europe this summer?

Indeed, FR are infamous for it.

"They were there best yielding routes ex-Cork."

but maybe the planes could be used on better yield routes elsewhere?

And FR play hard ball - a threat is a threat from them and they don't hesitate to back it up with action

It's not debatable, it's fact. I answered another posters query to whether or not they were profitable or not.

Forgive me, but how do you *know* this to be fact as it is most certainly commercially sensitive and anyone who does know this sort of thing, doesn't post it on here using their real name.

Isn't that like the least wettest day in winter? If they can be used more profitably elsewhere and send a message at the same time I can see why they do this.

Why would I disclose that here?

As has been pointed out that's exactly what they have done, but yet without any deal reached with the CAA, have increased ORK-LON flights in Winter 14/15 and at the same time reduced SNN-LON in the same period next Winter with better terms at the latter. Judge that for yourself, but in Munster they have one best yielding airport currently - ORK, and I can disclose that as we were lectured on it.
