FR have confirmed that cuts are a result of lack of airframes for 2014. They had load factors of 87% out of Magdeburg which is above the overall average (I now load factor is not a profit indication) but FR had no competion here and had a large catchment area. Maybe they'll go to Hanover or Kassel instead, if they get the deal they want.

Difficult one..
Route may be profitable but if can replace it with 4 sectors instead of 2 then can understand the reason but routes come and go all the time.

After Germany, an other wave of reductions has been noticed in Sweden (by thelocal.se)
Irish low cost airline Ryanair has cut several routes from Swedish airports, including Gothenburg, Nyköping and Västerås.
Karlstad, Växjö , Kalmar and Ängelholm are locations also hit by the slew of withdrawals.

According to a report in the local Värmlands Folkblad daily the only Swedish airports to escape the cut-backs are Malmö, Jönköping and Skellefteå.

The airline will leave Karlstad airport entirely after cutting its route to Barcelona.

"Very sad , but we hope they can come back in 2015," airport manager Peter Landmark told Värmlands Folkblad.

Some 23 flights a week will be removed from schedules out of Skavsta Airport in Nyköping, the airline's main gateway to Stockholm. Six major destinations including Frankfurt, Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Berlin disappear completely, according to local media reports.

"It is very sad news for all of us. We are trying to manage it as best we can," said Skavsta CEO Dot Gade Kulovuori to Södermanlands Nyheter.
As we see, the question asked here a month ago...
how many cuts in the already announced 2014 summer timetable must be made to accommodate all these new routes?
...got answered already. Now the question is: were these routes indeed so under-performing and will the new Italian, Belgian and Irish routes close to or equal the profitability of those slashed ones? If it's the profitability issue addressed here, it's OK, even if some loyal partners are being stood up right now. However, if the move was just one more politically-accentuated game on the European chess board of airports, it will not do much good, I'm afraid.

Several cuts also in Spain. Airports affected include VLC, SCQ, SVQ, SDR, TFS, LPA, FUE, MAD, ALC & PMI. Some of these bases will see reductions on its number of aircrafts based (ie VLC, MAD...)

Regards.

GRO/BHX changes

I have already booked 4 sectors to/from GRO to BHX for 2014. Now I see the exact flights are "unavailable" but my bookings still exist under "Manage my Booking"
I assume FR are messing around with schedules and the next thing I will get is an email that my flights have been cancelled/changed and what do I want to do about it?

Noticed that Pisa is not bookable from Bournemouth next summer having already been put on sale 2 x week

Also Wroclaw is not bookable as well but has been like that for some time

There is still gaps on Tuesday with the Bournemouth based aircraft to maybe operate something , otherwise its the same as last summer with extra flights to Malaga and Lanzarote in July and August again

It seems that the MST base will be dropped as per April 2014. According to a local forum crew has been informed about the closure last Friday.

7 routes out of MST will remain, the other 8 routes (BVE, DUB, STN, AGP, BGQ, PSA, TSF and TFS) will be terminated.

Ryanair the nice airline

I absolutely love this training video for the new "customer friendly" Ryanair

Probably posted before but can't stop laughing seeing it again and again Michael O'Leary's 'nicer' airline - The Mario Rosenstock Show | RTÉ TWO - YouTube

Very good!

As much as I welcome the new ethos, I hope it's actually a lesson learned and not just a short term stunt.

Nope. Jönköping will be ditched altogether, despite the existing three-years agreement. The reason: shortage of aircraft. Sure, spreading themselves too thin obviously.

"Customer friendly Ryanair", people please get real! Making a song and a dance about "new" and "improved" customer service practices that were actually the norm in the airline industry of the past shows just how stupid FR think the fare paying public are.


Pulling flights left, right and centre also does nothing to add to the customer service experience either, especially if you are like me already booked on a now pulled route and are waiting for inevitable alternative flight or refund we don't really give a damn email. All it does show is that FR clearly over expanded, flew what were obviously a lot of marginal routes and are now making the customer pay the price for that landing them with the inconvenience of having to make new travel plans.


Loads of airlines pull routes and/or reduce frequencies but I don't remember any on the scale currently being announced by FR

HHN (Frankfurt Hahn) base reduced from 9 to 6 aircraft for summer.

These cuts are of unprecedented scale... are ALL of these planes needed for the new bases or can we expect some yet unknown base?

Seems to be an expectation that some Airline will no longer be flying when money runs out.

What number of weekly flight reductions will be applicable at Hahn?

I would get out of making suggestions like that about betting on it.

Remember Paddy Power debacle when they ran a book of which airline would fail next............

Except if Etihad decided to acquire full control over AZ, it would mean Ryanair's miscalculation.

Hahn airport reckon with 300.000 fewer passengers as a result of the reduction from 9 to 6.It is strange that FR start a customer care offensive a few weeks ago and since then they are pulling routes everywhere. Yes, pull routes if they are unprofitable but then why release them for sale p*ssing off customers who have then to make alternative arrangements. Did FR get their whole fleet management wrong?
