Ryanair say they haven't even been approached by IAG yet. Its completely In Ryanair hands then as to wheather they sell or not. I'd say they will bit MOL is rather unpredictable then isn't he?
MOL looks after company he runs, getting €400 million means can distribute to shareholders or pay down debt.

Ryanair have lost nothing on this deal as IAG will likely have to divest London-Dublin slots.

Of course, that's one way to look at it.

There's also the fact the MOL may be getting an even stronger competitor (Aer Lingus has fought off one of the most ruthless LCC's over the past few years, I doubt this will be of concern tbh) who will gain alot of connecting pax.

Also its unlikely that IAG will have to drop any Heathrow slots as EI and BA will be separate entities, unlike the BMI slots.

Aer Lingus lost how much in last 10 years ?

Aer Lingus and BA are owned by same group, they connected and claiming they are not has no chance of being believed.

BA cannot compete with Low Cost Airlines never could, never will.

racedo - I don't understand what you mean about Aer Lingus and BA being owned by the same group ? Could you elaborate please ?

BA seem to be doing a good job at being competitive with LCCs - value is often more important than just absolute cheapest

Aer Lingus and BA will both be owned by IAG if the Aer Lingus takeover goes ahead. Of course it's not at the moment, that was bad terminology.

Aer Lingus are a very strong Airline that has managed to fend off one of the most aggressive LCC's in the world. No doubt Ryanair don't want more strengthing of that airline.

No chance that will happen on intra european routes.

Aer Lingus will get a mere mention at IAG board meeting, BA at Heathrow and Iberia at MAD are the issue.

Dublin has as much U.S traffic as Madrid and will have more once the new routes come along.

Mere mention? They are also the only airline in IAG to have long haul routes from 2 hubs in their respective countries.

Potential German legal action over self employed pilots

Pilotenverträge bei Ryanair - Morgenmagazin - ARD | Das Erste

Reported this morning on ARD Morgenmagazine. Seems that the UK offices of one of the agencies used by Ryanair have been visited. Any action, it seams, would be taken against Brookfield Aviaiton for unpaid German taxes, rather than against Ryanair, for whom, naturally, the pilots do not work directly.

Vereinigung Cockpit, not surprisingly, aren't happy about the employment conditions of Ryanair crew in Germany - but it's difficult to see what they can do about it.

There is a report of an indefinite strike of Ryanair handling staff at Madrid-Barajas airport to commence on 30 May.

Anybody know anything more on this?

No, but they are extremely close. I expect Dublin to overtake Madrid in terms of United States traffic. Madrid does the largest amount of traffic to Latin America from Europe though, and by quite a margin. (Notice I said United States) (In terms of all American traffic, not just IB and EI.)

Yes and this is the key reason why Iberia was an attractive investment/ partner due to its unrivalled network to South America.

ssflyer, if you look at the NOTAMS you will see that there is indeed no fuel at LIG from 14:23Z on the 28th. Hardly the fault of an airline!

Limoges

There was no criticism of FR whatsoever either in or implied in my words and as can be seen in the tone of my follow up post on the EMA forum

"I understand there was a fuel drivers strike that prevented a top up. Pax sat on aircraft as pilot tried negotiating a quick re-routing but it took 90 minutes,sitting in a full aircraft at 29C before they got away. Compliments to the captain who kept everyone informed and even opened up the flight deck to visitors whilst awaiting the new route, shame all the cold drinks were now very warm. They finally arrived at EMA 95 minutes late- not sure what fuel level was when it arrived on stand (?)
Ryanair website shows delay due to Belgian ATC strike...!!!"

If the fuel strike was notam'd, and the flight was a short EMA-LIG-EMA, was round trip fuel not available with a healthy buffer added to the minimum? What fuel was loaded at EMA? How was the return flight executed? Much more interesting points to this story.

Sorry ssflyer, wrong impression, glad you got home in the end. Rat 5, suggest you look at the times of the notam and original post. The Notam was created 23mins after STD.

Wifi and interlining?

Ryanair eyes Wi-Fi, interlining | IFE content from ATWOnline

“I’d be quite surprised, looking at the next five years, if ourselves and probably easyJet aren’t feeding traffic into connections,” Jacobs said. “It has many implications and we are looking through them, just trying to understand what the different versions of that are."

If this happens, our fellow PPRuNer eu01 will deserve special recognition from Ryanair!
