From Flight International:

In a video – part of which has been seen by FlightGlobal and confirmed as genuine by the carrier – chief executive Michael O'Leary states that the airline already has "a surplus of over 500 pilots and some 400 cabin crew", which he says is a consequence of resignations falling "to effectively zero since January 2019".

Just came to my mind: Will Ryanair be ready to comply with the Revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2) in a few days time? True, that concerns everybody, but most airlines have already implemented it, FR never bothered to introduce the strong customer authentication during the payment process, hence my question. If not....

Eu01 - would you perhaps be kind enough to explain what items Ryanair might wish to examine to verify compliance ?

^^ To my understanding, as of 14th of September the card payments should be secured by "Verified By Visa", "MasterCard Secure" or similar verification methods (strong customer authentication for electronic payment transactions). Did I get it wrong? Of course the payment service provider could implement it on behalf of FR and others, soon we shall see.

With the Wizz announcement at EDI, wonder if its further evidence of the suggested cull of the Ryanair base?

They seem quite committed to EDI IMO. PIK in bigger danger in Scotland I'd say of major losses with GLA already stripped back, i.e. aircraft/base closure as opposed to losing some marginal routes which I'd say are EDI's biggest vulnerability.

They have dumped STN from GLA and will dump STN from EDI at the end of October. Can’t remember where the other GLA cuts are. What they do with PIK will be a interesting one given the fact that they have a major engineering base there with a third hanger at present being constructed. And then there’s the supposed sale of PIK. Time will tell.

Hearing that internally FAO and ORK (and BFS?) crew have been advised of closure this morning.

On top of the potentially bad news for crews in the two bases affected come two pedantic @rseholes showing how clever they are.
Pathetic!

Girona airport must be cursing the day they let Ryanair through the door.. Before Ryanair flew to Barcelona and they labelled Girona and Reus as airports for Barcelona, Girona peaked at 5.5m pax in a year - in 2018 they managed 2m pax.
