Another day another stabbing the joys of Ultra low cost

Gather a Santiago flight bound for the Canaries diverted into Oporto after some huge guy drank a bottle of Vodka and proceeded to attack the crew with a pen

As far as I know, Rodez used to have year-round service from Stansted, even if it was just 1 or 2 days per week. It looks as if Ryanair are suspending all winter flights at Rodez (all routes, not just STN) from early Nov 14 to Mar 15. Beyond March 2015, nothing is on sale yet with Ryanair.
Of course somewhere like Rodez in a very rural area is unlikely to see much inbound demand in winter. Besides Ryanair, the only route at Rodez is a PSO route to Paris. Is this perhaps a precursor to Rodez being dropped completely from Ryanair's network ? Fares on STN to RDZ from late August do not suggest great demand outside high summer...

I find making light of airline crew being attacked on a flight pretty shabby.

So do I, but I don't think it was meant in any nasty way.

Joe can you explain this please? Don't think your well known hatred of any things Glasgow is relevant here.

They have being there 11 years, has STN ever being seasonal over this period. It was year round last year for sure but not sure before this?

Rodez

Hi,

Sorry for the slow response. Stansted - Rodez has operated since May 2003. Loads have never been that brilliant, in fact it is usually in the bottom 20 of Ryanair's Stansted routes ranked by load factor (note the usual caveat about loads and yields).

Demand has always been highly seasonal. The route didn't operate in the winters of 07/08, 08/09 and 13/14. Cynics might suggest that there could be a connection between the provision of a winter service and the availability of some form of marketing support arrangement.

Note that Ryanair also flies seasonal routes from Rodez to Dublin and Charleroi. There was also a Porto route from 2010 to 2012.

anna - many thanks for your post. Do you happen to know which other airports in FR's system, either just from the Stansted or the UK generally are also less-than-brilliant performers in terms of load factor ? I mention Stansted and the UK simply because the raw data is published by the CAA and avoids any suspicion that commercially sensitive info is being leaked illicitly.

I know I can go through the CAA stats and work it out myself manually, but the idea of putting this together for several different months in the year is somewhat daunting !

Routes with less than brilliant loads

Hi DJ,

Sure. This list is compiled from public sources (CAA). I've picked the UK routes with less than 60% average flown load factor for 2013 or the first 5 months of 2014. Note that a route with less than brilliant loads isn't necessarily unprofitable:

Bournemouth - Chania (new route - still bedding in)
Bristol - Knock
Edinburgh - Billund, Torp (both dropped) and Rygge [a lot of the UK-Norway routes have relatively low loads, but I suspect higher than average yields]
East Midlands - Knock and Cork (the latter averaging around 40% since launch)
Liverpool - Torp and Shannon
Manchester - Tours (dropped)
Prestwick - Dublin and Derry
Stansted - Torp, Rygge, Haugesund (see above), Dortmund, Niederrhein, Maastricht (dropped), Dole (dropped), Brive (new route)

Preparing for EZY's base at Porto, both routes to Hamburg and Berlin are probably high on the list.
