There was talk about Munich and Hanover. But what other 6 major airports are left which FR do not currently serve? Düsseldorf, Erfurt, Dresden, Kassel, Saarbrücken, Lübeck (hardly as they are now have started in Hamburg), or Rostock?

Airports which are currently not served by FR in Germany and my opinion where FR could/want go:
FRA, MUC, DUS, TXL, HAJ, DRS, PAD, FDH, SCN, LBC, ZQW, ERF, GWT, RLG, AOC, KSF

I cannot see Ryanair going to Tegel, Schonefeld is perfectly sufficient and even Aer Lingus doesnt fly to txl.

What Aer Lingus do in Germany has zero relevance to what Ryanair will do.

If you choose to ignore my point then do. Anyone with common sense should of been able to understand it.

But anyways, To clairify :
If Schonefeld aiport is central enough for Aer Lingus, its central enough for Ryanair.

Seljuk - I think it is extremely unlikely that Ryanair will be doing anything at ZQW airport, if only because the airport made many of the staff redundant at the end of 2014 after the airport went bankrupt.
Places like DUS and MUC are very different to PAD, KSF or ERF. Despite the public statements about moving FR away from middle-of-nowehere airports to big city airports, the airline's actions don't always follow this idea (e.g. new base in the Azores suggests FR remains driven in part by opportunism and not entirely long term strategy), so I'm hesitant to say what type of German airports will pick up FR service.

Don't know what they are planning in Germany. But if they really want to grow to 20% market share they will have to do domestic flights. From my point of view it doesn't make sence to go to SXF.
MUC-DUS; MUC-TXL; DUS-TXL; CGN-TXL; HAM-MUC; MUC-CGN are the main ones and FR should go for them to compete with LH (operated by 4U) and AB.
To do so they need at first slots at MUC, DUS and TXL which might be difficult.

Im sure Ryanair will announce SNN-AMS to compete with ORK-AMS with Aer Lingus and will announce DUB-AMS. Aer Lingus will be up with some stiff competition then!

For those who haven't already seen the news, Swedavia have decided to close Gothenburg Saeve airport permanently effective immediately to heavy traffic - e.g. anything like a 737 or larger. This replaces an existing suspension that was expected to end later this month.

Will FR stay at Landvetter long term, abandon GOT entirely or do something different ?
Well informed opinions welcome...

Given the current ethos, I think staying put is more than likely to happen.

Grade 'F' in Maths?

Is there a Ryanair ITK on here who can resolve the following conundrum for us?

The 'Manchester Evening News' has just published an interview with Ryanair's marketing guru, Kenny Jacobs. However, the numbers quoted in the article don't make sense. Mr Jacobs tells the MEN that Ryanair will base two additional aircraft at MAN for Summer 2015. This would imply last year's fleet total (seven) plus two units [7+2=9]. However, the article then goes on to say that the MAN-based fleet will be 7 units this summer.

One of those two statements must be wrong. Either there will be two more aircraft (=9) or there will be 7 based aircraft (= ZERO additional aircraft).

Is anybody here in a position to clarify the correct version for us? Thanks in advance.

Update on Ryanair on Dutch market: AMS base not before 2016

Kenny Jacobs has given an update on Ryanair's plan for the Dutch market.
A short summary:

- Ryanair has a 4% marketshare in the Netherlands, they want to significantly increase that

- Jacobs: "One scenario could be that we start flying business routes from Schiphol and leisure routes from Lelystad (Lelystad will not open for 737s before 2018). Examples given by Jacobs for routes from AMS: Dublin, London and Eastern Europe.

- MOL yesterday: "Schiphol is one of the airports that we're in talks with, but we can't say that we've made much progress"

- Jacobs: Schiphol base not before 2016. Negotiations are (of course) about the fees and the 25 min turnaround. FR wants to use Schiphol's low cost H/M pier. Slots for those gates are very limited with Easyjet's base starting in a few months.

- Jacobs: Eindhoven Airport will stay very important for us and wil get a third based 737 this summer. Destinations from EIN up to 36 this summer with 'new' routes to LIS, MAN, MAD, TFS en TRN (flown already but first time summer routes). Route to Knock will be cancelled. Increased freq. on EIN-STN, EIN-KRK and EIN-WMI.

Oh dear FR have embarrassed themselves by using an Aer Lingus aircraft on their website promoting their business service. A fleet of over 300 aircraft and they can't get their own picture!

A passenger alerted Aer Lingus!

FR could only manage this response!
